    It looks as if you'll get off to a great start in the year ahead with the possibilities of finding both a quality social life and many new potential prospects for material gain. Make the most of things while conditions favor you.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Think twice before you make a promise, because one made in haste might have to be reconsidered later. The last thing you want is to have to go back on your word.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You're not always a person who abides by the procedures you first implement, and this might be the case today. As long as the change of direction is a course correction, that's fine. Just don't do it out of boredom.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you're smart, you'll keep everything light and fluffy with someone you don't know well. This person could take everything too seriously or fly off the handle at the drop of a hat.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You are not apt to be too productive today if you have someone looking over your shoulder, so keep kibitzers at bay and bosses happy. In order to do your best, you need a peaceful environment.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. So when you hear about a gamble that's easy pickings, don't fall for it. People who say they have inside knowledge may be all talk.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You can see both sides of the coin when it comes to your financial dealings, but the coin that will end upright is in your hands. If you're ingenious in making a profit, don't be foolish in eradicating the gains.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) No one knows better than you that you can accomplish your aims by maintaining a friendly attitude. Conversely, aggressiveness can destroy it all in a flash. Keep your intense nature focused on the former.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Usually you are a generous person and you will be so again today — until something or someone turns you off. Then you're not likely to share anything, even with persons who deserve it.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) There is nothing wrong with relaxing and enjoying yourself with friends, but take care that you aren't doing anything at their expense, such as getting them to cough up your share of the tab.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Timing can be extremely important in achieving your objectives, and in your case, the earlier you get started, the more you'll accomplish. You'll not do well once your productive hours come to a close.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Your first efforts are likely to be your best ones, so try to appreciate their significance and not attempt to keep remaking what you've already accomplished. Things will get worse, not better.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) Something good may come along, but be smart and keep it to yourself. If a jealous onlooker knew about it, he or she might attempt to throw a monkey wrench in the machinery.
