You will finally be forced to make tough decisions that you have managed to avoid in the past. The only way to make progress will be to address any longstanding problems once and for all. You may not like change, but it will be necessary to accept it this year.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Knowledge will be the defining feature of your future success. Take part in anything that will give you an edge over the competition. A romantic interest will develop swiftly.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Look after any chronic health problems. Don’t cut corners with legal or financial concerns. Stay informed about any important matters and don’t allow stress to wear you down.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — A relationship may preoccupy you today. Remain calm and try to be fun and lighthearted. You will be emotional, and it’s better to be positive, affectionate and devoted than upset.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Now is not the time to pause and reflect. Move forward and reach for your goals. Professional matters could work out in your favor if you make an effort.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Decide what you need to do to update your image for the better. Socializing with someone who interests you romantically will have a positive outcome, but be careful not to move too fast.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Stop yourself before you overreact and do something you may regret. You will lack important details about a situation that is bothering you. Don’t make a hasty play.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Take advantage of any opportunity you have to travel today. If you can’t get away, content yourself with research. New information will help you plan your future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Do whatever it takes to stay ahead of the curve. Concentrate on your work. Push your proposals forward without reservation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t let conflicting feelings paralyze you. Make decisions that will eliminate interactions with people who are causing you grief. You are at a crossroads in your life.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Limitations are evident. If you carry on with your current approach, you will lose your footing. Focus on friends and creative endeavors. Clandestine activities will blow up in your face today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You will need to accept help from a capable person. If you go it alone, you won’t get off the ground. This is not the time to rely exclusively on your own resources.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You can’t trust anyone else to do your job correctly. If you wish to advance, you must show your worth to those with influence. Business trips are likely to be profitable.
