You will have to make some difficult decisions this year. Taking on too many projects at once will not earn you the recognition you desire. Focus on the most advantageous opportunity and devote all of your time, effort and expertise toward that goal.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your easygoing personality will draw attention and attract new alliances. Attend functions that allow you to share ideas, concepts and plans. Service groups or cultural get-togethers will lead to potential partnerships.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don't make promises you won't be able to keep, or you'll face an emotional dilemma. Listen to friends and relatives who offer valuable advice, not ridicule and negativity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Sharing opinions and listening to the people around you will be the first step in pursuing the home projects you have in mind. You should avoid criticizing others and instead offer them worthwhile solutions.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Postpone any plans until you are confident that you have all the details worked out. You can avoid tension by not revealing your aims until your plan is a sure thing.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be feeling emotionally stifled. Getting out will enable you to make new friends. Take a close look at your present relationships and decide if changes need to be made.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's a fine time for artistic expression. Whether you enjoy painting, music, literature or some other pastime, take on a project that will showcase your talent. Put aside problems and enjoy the moment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Too much time spent helping others will lead to you neglecting the people and interests that mean the most. Take time to pursue activities that provide stimulation and greater happiness.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Budget wisely today. Your home improvement ideas may be more costly than you originally planned. Get in touch with older relatives who could use your help or offer you sound advice.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- There may be a rift with someone you deal with daily. Have a heart-to- heart talk to determine the extent of the problem, and be willing to compromise.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- New possibilities or positions in the workplace are coming your way. Other people are impressed with the efforts you have put forth. Be prepared to make a career move.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Plan physical activities that will get you motivated and inspired. It could be as simple as a brisk walk or a hike in the country.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A small change can boost your spirits. Consider making improvements at home. Ask a friend or family member to pitch in, and it will help you form a closer bond.
