If you are not careful, indecisiveness will cause stagnation. Lack of confidence in your abilities may make you overly impressionable. Surround yourself with inspiring people who will reassure you that you're making good choices. This is the year to exorcise your demons and think positively.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It's best to lie low and allow someone else to take the lead. You will discover far more about this person if you remain passive. Don't be forthcoming about your plans, or someone may try to beat you to the finish line.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Be honest; it will be impossible to hide your feelings. Make your needs clear and search for a way to sort out existing problems. People who don't understand your values should be regarded as acquaintances -- not friends.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Make a point of mingling today. This will be a good time to network. If you are in the right place at the right time, an investment opportunity will arise. Stay motivated.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Decisions may be clouded by emotional issues. To avoid a misunderstanding, be open about whatever is distracting you. Face difficulties methodically so they don't resurface later.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A physical activity may lead to new friendships. Someone from your past may turn up unexpectedly. Be cautious in order to avoid this person taking advantage of you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Meeting up with chums will be inspiring. Travel will stimulate you, and you may make new friends. As long as you are conservative with your money, investments can be made.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Reading will lead to valuable information. Idleness is the enemy. Make adjustments to your home environment, but stick to a budget. Keeping busy will help your mood.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your ego will be bruised if you have allowed someone to make a fool of you. Trying to feel better through extravagance will not help. Choose to be a passive observer today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A financial endeavor may leave you disillusioned. Don't allow loved ones to meddle in your finances -- their suggestions won't pay off. Offer advice, but don't lend money.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Now is a great time to travel. You can learn, have fun and make new friends. Conversations with fascinating and unique individuals will inspire and energize you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Professional changes are necessary. Look into taking a new direction or starting your own business. Others are unlikely to be helpful, but you will find satisfaction in doing the work yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Today, you will need to say "no." Avoid projects that make you uneasy. Employ tact when handling other people's concerns. Try not to get wrapped up in someone else's drama.
