This year will offer numerous opportunities, but discerning which ones are right for you will be a challenge. Don't spread yourself too thin. Seek advice from experienced individuals, and don't be afraid to ask for favors. What you accomplish this year is entirely up to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Seek closure by communicating with those who have upset you. You can make positive changes if you clear the air. If you fail to sort out personal problems, your future will stall.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Awkwardness will ensue if you allow others to blame you. Begin this year by setting the record straight. Be strong and take a stance that reflects your own values.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don't allow others to leave you holding the bag. Avoid indulgent forms of entertainment. Instead, relax and prepare for the year to come. Put yourself first.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Get the year off to a good start. Carefully plan how to get ahead. Make use of your talents. As soon as you get the chance, confidently share your ideas.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Reflect on your past, and make it your mission to avoid repeating mistakes. Treat other people as you wish to be treated. Focus on empathy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Things will go smoothly today. Love is on the rise, and you will have plenty of choices. If you are already in a relationship, plan a romantic evening. If not, get out on the town.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don't be afraid to lead. You will be admired for your skills if you get involved in family projects. Someone may express jealousy toward you. Ignore any negativity, and continue to offer your support.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Socialize with friends and relatives. Be candid with your opinions, but prepare to be accountable. If you can let go of the past, you will have an easier time moving forward.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Deal with any issues that have been hanging over you. Reflect on past experiences to avoid getting caught in a vicious cycle. You need stability, and you can only find it by letting go.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don't be tempted by a dubious scheme. Try to start the year on the right foot. Hold out for better opportunities. Travel is likely to result in frustrating delays.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Overindulgence is likely to cause you problems today. Don't lend money to friends or take on responsibilities that aren't yours. You must take care of your own needs first.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Begin planning for the new year. Put your ideas on paper so that you're ready for the future to arrive. Don't allow personal setbacks to interfere with your goals.
