This year will present professional opportunities and personal problems. Explain to the important people in your life what your plans are and how much of your time is required to see them through. Emotional upsets can be avoided if you share your dreams, hopes and wishes.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If someone criticizes you, consider why. You may want to begin again with a fresh attitude. Your reputation could be damaged if you aren't giving your best.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Strive to listen to any advice offered you. Although it may not be what you want to hear, give any suggestions a fair chance. The results could prove rewarding.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Try to surround yourself with good friends and steadfast allies. You may be subject to criticism if you go against the grain. Honesty is your best recourse.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You need to laugh more. Gather with good friends and family for some light entertainment. A card or board game will help keep your mind off your troubles.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Many learning tools are available to you. Travel or education will enable you to study different people and cultures. A trip to an exotic location will be enlightening.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don't let your emotions get the better of you. Deal with others in a non-confrontational manner. Logic and reason will advance your cause more than harsh words or accusations.
