Success can be yours if you're willing to go the distance. Don't let anyone stand in your way. Devote your energy to your own pursuits, and plan carefully. Stay focused. Your courage and integrity will be admired. Do whatever is necessary.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Today will be busy and demanding. Stay focused on what needs to be done. It's best to try to compromise in order to keep the peace.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don't be deceived by rumors; someone may be trying to manipulate you. Use your own judgment and avoid risk-takers. Don't make any promises without getting all of the facts first.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Take some time to be alone. Leave your work for tomorrow. This is a good day to muse about the past and the future. You'll feel better prepared to make changes after you've had a break.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Keep pace with the go-getters. You are too busy to make time for people with no direction. Do what's best for you and make friends with those who inspire you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's a good day to find ways to pick up new skills and knowledge. You'll get ahead if you continue to solidify your assets. Seek out stimulation. Don't settle for dull conversation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Get a checkup if you have been having health concerns. This is not the day to let things slide. Follow through with your goals to give yourself a greater sense of purpose. Make time to rejuvenate.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may want to check up on someone. Your intervention may not be welcome, but it will be helpful. Deep conversations will lead to new ideas that will be useful in the future.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Maintain a skeptical attitude. Insincerity from your acquaintances is likely to lead you astray. You'd do better to focus on your professional life instead of personal concerns if you wish to make headway.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's time to take care of unfinished business. Let go of projects that have no legs, and instead focus on those with promise. Your decisions will give you momentum. Allow your ambition to grow.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- To avoid conflict, you should maintain an impartial point of view. If you are critical, you will meet with resistance. Let others do as they may.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Close listening will be beneficial. Your observations will provide insights that will change your path. If you put yourself in someone else's shoes, you'll feel fortunate.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It's time to enjoy friends and thought-provoking entertainment. Consider a change of residence. Keep your eyes and ears open to new possibilities.
