Do your best to play by the rules this year. If you are strong-willed, you will be less bothered by the highs and lows you encounter in the coming months. You will reach a favorable conclusion if you are determined to continue down a familiar path.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don't let a shortage of funds hold you back. Others think highly of your talents and will support your efforts, so believe in your assets and capabilities.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Dare yourself to try something new. You will become inspired if you choose to do things that are unfamiliar to you. Take the plunge, or you will never know what you are missing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Being too rigid will alienate you from your peers. Try to be a little more flexible so you can stay on the good side of your colleagues.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may daydream about exotic destinations, but, in reality, experiencing cultural events in your own community will bring you just as much enjoyment. Explore your neighborhood.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You need to realistically examine your financial situation and do whatever it takes to protect your interests. Failing to keep on top of agreements, contracts or legal matters could land you in debt.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Don't get involved in any power struggles today. If everyone does their own thing, there will be less opportunity for discord and disagreements. Spend time with someone who shares your ideas.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Listen and offer solutions to friends, relatives or colleagues who need someone to confide in, but don't be too quick to share your secrets. You will gain allies and improve your status.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Protect yourself by doing extensive research before making a radical career move. If you act on false information, you could undo all the progress you have made so far.
