You will have to make strategic maneuvers this year if you want to avoid pitfalls due to a lack of organization or excessive talking. Staying focused and refusing to let others' actions lead you astray will be crucial if you plan to get ahead.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Avoid arguments, even if you feel feisty and ready for a good fight. The end result will leave you in a no-win situation and force a change that you don't want or expect.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll have a handle on what will and what won't work for you. Indulge in social activities or entertainment in order to make new connections and win the approval of someone special.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Keep an open mind, but don't feel the need to make a decision until you are ready. The changes going on around you will turn out better than anticipated.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Forge ahead with optimism. You've got more going for you than you realize, and with a little push, you can turn a "maybe" into a "yes." Speak up and make things happen.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Acceptance and moderation will be required to avoid a loss. You cannot buy love, so put your money away and rely on your personality and charm to win approval.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What's happened in the past will help you make a wise decision now. You can make personal and financial gains if you make certain adjustments. Romance is favored.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be careful what you say and how you deal with domestic situations. An unexpected change will lead to uncertainty. Step back and let things settle down before you react.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Practicality will pay off, but don't give up on your innovative ideas. It's your uniqueness that draws attention. Love and romance coupled with travel plans look inviting.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It's time to cut your losses so that you can begin to make some gains. Let go of whoever or whatever is holding you back or causing you grief.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Make a contribution to someone or something you believe in. Fixing up your residence or getting ready for the holiday season will ease your stress. Romance is encouraged.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Keeping a secret will not be easy. Make a point to do things differently or bring about last-minute changes when no one is watching. Home improvements will pay off.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Sign up to help a charity or attend a fundraising event if you want to feel good. Personal relationships will benefit if you do something romantic or offer a kind gesture.
