Participation will make the difference this year. Engaging in new adventures, learning and directing your energy into things you enjoy will pay off. You have plenty to gain but also to lose if you neglect personal responsibilities. Manage your temper, finances and consumption with care.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Look at all aspects of a situation before you get involved. You should focus on listening, learning and exploring the possibilities. Time is on your side, so slow down and think the matter through.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Look, see and do. Let your imagination take charge and your intelligence help you develop what you want to pursue. Success will follow if you take action and chase your dream.
