    Because many of the conditions that impeded your progress in the past will now be dissipating, the year ahead can offer many fresh possibilities for growth. Take advantage of new vistas that open up where success is beckoning.
     AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Unfortunately, the very person you turn to for a favor might be looking to you for the same accommodation, which neither can give. Team up together to find someone who has the wherewithal to help out.
     PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) You are apt to have a strong desire for socializing, yet large groups tend to annoy you right now. If you want to satisfy this need, seek out intimate friends with whom you feel completely comfortable.
     ARIES (March 21-April 19) Although you have a wonderful, constructive family project in mind to do together, the clan could have other plans of their own. Don't get down on them for not pitching in; just do your own thing.
     TAURUS (April 20-May 20) It will be your loss if you reject some valuable information another is trying to present to you, just because you don't like the source. The only thing you should consider is if the message serves your best interests.
     GEMINI (May 21-June 20) If you become so obsessed over what is expected of others and concentrate only on that, you will fail to do what is expected of you. Concentrate on setting an example, not the standards.
     CANCER (June 21-July 22) Should this turn out to be one of those days when you find it impossible to please others, establish your own personal objectives and apply all your efforts towards achieving them. At least you'll get something done.
     LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Although you might have a list a mile long of things you would like to do, you'll only have yourself to blame if you can't get to any of them. The demands being made on you now stem from duties you've neglected.
     VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You will be inclined to champion unpopular causes at this time, but there is only one way others won't mind the position you take: don't attempt to impose your views on them.
     LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It's admirable to set lofty goals for yourself, but if you lack the necessary fortitude to carry any of them out to conclusion, it won't mean a thing. Don't toss the towel in the ring prematurely.
     SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) In matters that pertain to your work or career, be extra careful not to express your goals and intentions to your co-workers. Someone with cunning ways may take your good ideas and run with them.
     SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Take care not to put yourself in the position where you could be held accountable for a friend's obligation. If you are naive and oblivious to what's going on, this will happen rather easily.
     CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your thinking might be superior to that of your mate's on subject matter that is important to you both, but should he or she not be convinced of that, explain yourself in logical terms, not emotional ones.
