ARIES (March 21-Apr. 19): Start the New Year off with some bling instead of a bang. Dress up, put on your nicest duds and look your best. You may create a favorable impression and receive compliments from someone worthy of respect.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Should old acquaintances be forgotten, you'll make it up to them. You may meet an old friend or neighbor while making the social rounds, or receive an unexpected phone call wishing you a happy New Year.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Pop the cork. Stream the streamers. Throw confetti. Usher out the old year and welcome the new with plenty of enthusiasm. Traditional celebrations bring out the best in people.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Sip champagne. Nibble caviar. Only the very best will do for you. Tonight you can immerse yourself in the good things in life. Tomorrow you can become realistic about what you can really afford.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Listen up. Others want to be heard, too. Your brilliant children, great vacations, or business success may dominate a conversation. Don't ignore jealousy or let misunderstandings or a temporary lack of harmony grow.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take pride in your ability to cope with every contingency. You can be extremely creative without being caustic. Concentrate on hobbies that fill you with enthusiasm and enjoy home-grown entertainment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22.): If you add up all the energy wasted on fighting, you could power a light bulb. If you let this light bulb illuminate the situation, you'll realize there wasn't anything to fight about in the first place.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Ring in the New Year with someone special. A temporary wave of disenchantment with life might make you grit your teeth, but you can turn that grimace into an inviting smile very easily.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Blow your own horn. Noisemakers are popular at this time of the year, so boasts, bragging and bravado won't be out of place. You can benefit from someone else's generosity and tolerance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you keep on fighting the wave of popular opinion you may seem to be a glutton for punishment. This is a poor day to beg for cooperation from others or to make irrevocable decisions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is one day that everyone honors Father Time. Time may heal all wounds, but there's no reason to suffer the wound in the first place if you can prevent it. Be kind to everyone today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Pay attention to subtle nuances. An important change of direction and opinion that could affect your ability to achieve key goals for 2014 could be hidden beneath a veneer of holiday good will.
IF DECEMBER 31 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You might feel life is a roller coaster and you don't have a seat belt during the next six to eight weeks. Wait out this brief period of cosmic shift and avoid making irrevocable decisions, entering into agreements, or beginning anything of immense importance. It can be exciting to try out new things, but not all of the changes implemented during this time period will be permanent. Once the dust settles in April, you'll be ready to enjoy more of the security you crave by exercising not only your body but good judgment. June is an excellent month to change jobs or make key business decisions.
