Expect to face highs and lows this year. Don’t be too proud or embarrassed to ask for help. You will advance if you attack problems with intensity and determination. Strong alliances will provide the support necessary for you to reach your set destination.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Your sense of humor will help you escape an awkward situation. You will meet with opposition if you try to force your opinions on others.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Keep your composure today. Tension and anger will escalate if you are stubborn. If you make improvements at home, you won’t have time to get into family squabbles.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — A friend is likely to develop stronger feelings toward you. Make sure your intentions are clear, or your relationship may have a bitter ending. Leading someone on will make you look bad.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Children should be included in your plans. Be cautious when it comes to affairs of the heart. You could be in for a surprise if the person you fancy doesn’t feel the same way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Show how much you care by including the ones you love in enjoyable social activities. Helping others out will make you feel more secure in your own environment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Do something to enhance your looks and your self-esteem. Your emotions will take over if you get involved in a dispute with someone you care about. Diplomacy will be required.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Entertainment doesn’t have to be expensive. Getting together with friends or relatives for a night of games or dancing is a good way to add some spark to your life.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — As much as you would like to help others, it’s not practical to donate money that you can ill afford to part with. Offer your time and services instead, and keep spending to a minimum.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You have a lot of energy to burn. Do something physical and reap the health benefits. Participating in sports or other challenges will stimulate your mind as well as your body.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You may be at a crossroads in your life. By staying in the background, you will have the ability to listen and learn from people who can help alter your life.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don’t forget to take a little personal time today. It’s great to be considerate and caring, but you could use a little pampering as well. Save your charitable efforts for another time.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Avoid arguments to reduce your frustration level. A partner may have set priorities that conflict with yours. Carry on and get your own projects out of the way first.
