ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get into the swim of things. Focus your efforts on making the world a better place to live. You may be tempted to hide your ambitions or work in the background on a moneymaking project.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Schedule personal time for yourself. If you cater to everyone else's whims it could disrupt your own rhythms and routines. It may be necessary to be at someone's beck and call, but only within limits.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Find time and space to express the "real" you. Home or business might have you chained down and playing a role that doesn't provide satisfaction. Try a short getaway on your own.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): A new interest may be totally mesmerizing. If you're flooded by feelings of intoxication, ask for objective feedback from a friend. A love affair or proposal could turn your life upside down.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Listen and learn. Those close to you may be gripped by an obsession and stimulate you to try something new. Get inspired by a mentor, a cultural icon, or your favorite movie star.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A gentle, sympathetic and compassionate attitude works wonders to smooth the rough edges. Those close to you could be caught up in business or financial matters to the exclusion of all else.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your drive and initiative are dynamic, but perhaps out of place. It is possible to aggravate the people you hope to impress if you push your financial agenda. Focus on long-term results.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your financial merry go round ride may be grinding to a halt. Consider working harder and putting the video games away. A few extra hours of effort could make a world of difference.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Yielding to temptation could take you past the point of no return. Don't jeopardize business relationships by being argumentative. Remain cool as a cucumber to avoid a misunderstanding.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Get over yourself. You may think that your life is of the utmost importance, but when you're in a group setting the welfare of all is the key to success. Concentrate on making wise financial decisions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Just because something attracts your attention doesn't mean it's worthy of your energy or a viable solution. What's always worked in the past isn't necessarily the answer to solve today's dilemma.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Push problems to the side of the road. The ambitious side of you that's turned you into a logic machine needs to fade to the background. Let your attractive fun-loving side shine through.
IF JANUARY 7 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: The next 4-6 weeks may be a great time to ask for a promotion, change careers, appear in the public eye, or pop "the" question to a romantic partner. In February, you're sharper than usual about handling your finances and can successfully put plans in motion or attain whatever help you need. Improve your mind by studying independently, subscribing to magazines, joining focus groups, or taking a college course. Hold off on initiating major projects in April and May, when disruptive celestial conditions could filter down and create unpredictable results.
