Past experiences have taught you to always build upon a firm base, and that is exactly what you're likely to try to do in the year ahead. If you choose your ground well, it will provide you with many possibilities of success.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- As of today, you should have some stabilizing influences starting to manifest in areas that have been disruptive lately. Relax and let these calming trends bring you some peace.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don't hesitate to disengage yourself from others if you need to attend to an important matter that requires your immediate attention. It's OK to make it your top priority.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Because you are likely to require solitude to perform at your best, try to quietly slip away from others to a place that is totally free from outside interference.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Relaxed social activities with some old friends will prove to be the most pleasurable part of your day. You're not apt to feel the same way when with newer, more casual acquaintances.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Surprisingly, you might find someone with whom you've rarely seen eye-to-eye to be especially good company. This could produce a benchmark for a new relationship. Make the most of it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'd be smart not to allow yourself to be overwhelmed by details. In fact, you'll fare much better if you make yourself look at the big picture instead of just a few brush strokes.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don't appear too eager if someone is trying to interest you in a business proposition. It would weaken your position if you look to be too easy. Let him or her offer the opening bid.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- In an arrangement where your mate opts for the lead, it's OK to relegate yourself to a supporting role. It's not important who directs the show, as long as it produces mutual benefits.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Do yourself a huge favor by pushing away from your desk and getting some exercise. A stimulating activity, preferably outdoors, will be just what the doctor ordered.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Associating with some friends whose exuberance is infectious will make this a fun day. Make it a point to avoid dullards.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Although you'll have a reservoir of strength to draw upon that will serve you well in successfully performing tedious endeavors, you'll still need to pace yourself if you want to run the best race.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- When dealing with others on a one-on-one basis, your manner will put them at ease. If your interlocutors sense your sincerity and concern, they'll feel impelled to treat you similarly.
