Monitor what's going on in your personal life, but don't make hasty decisions that could affect your personal finances in the year ahead. The experience you gain by getting involved in organizations you believe in or with people who share your concerns will pay off.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Take on a physical challenge today. Size up an emotional situation and defuse it before it's too late, or prepare to walk away for good.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Put relationships and your future intentions in the spotlight, and discuss your plans with the people who count. A face-to-face encounter will help settle matters quickly.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll have some good ideas, but not everyone will be prepared to receive them. Prepare to do the legwork and clear up any weak links before presenting your plans.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Take some time to hang out with someone you find intriguing. Express your thoughts and make long-term plans that will ensure your security.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Bring about certain changes that will make you happy. You won't please everyone, but you will at least know where you stand and how you can and should proceed. It's a good time to begin afresh.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Travel plans will lift your spirits. Even if you take a short trip or sign up for an evening of fun and games, it will do much to enliven your day.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Emotional involvements will escalate if you don't take care of them. Walk away from anyone who's too demanding or not looking out for your best interest. Don't be afraid to do your own thing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Put some creative thought into your home and family life. Consider changes that will encourage you to be more innovative and adventurous. Personal improvements will build confidence.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Do what you can to help others, but don't make any financial contributions. Offer suggestions, hands-on help or even a shoulder to cry on, but nothing more.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Mix business with pleasure and you will make new friends and improve your reputation. Include someone you are involved with personally, or you may face a dilemma at home.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You'll come up with interesting ideas, but not everyone will share your vision. Don't invest in a scheme if it's too ahead of its time; it'll keep.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you devote some time to a physical improvement regimen, you'll be pleased by the results. You'll have a whole new sense of confidence, which could lead to romance.
