Your sensitivity to what goes on around you will be heightened this year. Don’t ignore the signs you see when you should be standing your ground and taking action before matters escalate. Taking care of business quickly will ensure that you don’t miss the many opportunities heading your way.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Making a financial gain or negotiating a deal is featured. Step up and wheel and deal. If you leave this task to someone else, you won’t do as well.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Share your feelings with someone you love and respect. A joint effort will help you hash out all your problems, and although it won’t be easy, the results will be worthwhile.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A legal or financial dispute should be handled carefully. Anger is never a good way to deal with controversy if you want to move forward. Look for an appropriate solution.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Get involved in projects that will help you advance. Revamping your resume or exploring new ways to use your skills will encourage you to take on a new position or income opportunity.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Discuss what you want to see happen and get the go-ahead. If you are open to suggestions, it will help you bring about changes that will encourage saving and ease stress.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have a good plan, but don’t expect things to run smoothly when it comes to settlements, joint finances or issues that affect your health. Have a good excuse at the ready.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You’ll be drawn to someone who requires assistance. What you get in return will be a lesson or experience that will serve you well when you deal with future relationships.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Old habits are hard to break. Look at the mistakes you’ve made and the people who have been bad influences or have taken advantage of you, and alter your course.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Someone close to you will take advantage of your generosity and good nature. Offer nothing more than affection. Make positive personal changes. A new look and a healthier lifestyle are encouraged.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Getting together with an old friend or attending a reunion will do you good and give you something to think about. Be proud of your accomplishments instead of envying others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Take up a creative hobby or show a greater interest in different cultures, lifestyles or beliefs. What you learn will encourage you to improve your own life.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Getting angry will not help solve a problem. Address matters head-on, and if you must step down or make a move, you’ll end up further ahead when you do so.
