Make clear what you want to achieve this year. Refuse to let any emotional manipulation sway you in a different direction. Take pride in what you do, and don't take your eye off your goal until you are satisfied with the results. Avoid over-the-top suggestions and stick to a simple, affordable strategy that takes you where you want to go.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Consider how you earn your living and what options you have that can bring in extra cash. Don't act prematurely; get everything in order before you change direction.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Changes that occur will cause confusion and uncertainty. When in doubt, take a step back and observe. Don't overreact or give the wrong impression to someone who can influence your life, position or future. Don't spend or indulge foolishly.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Stick to what and who you know best. Trusting someone you barely know will put you in a vulnerable position. Be observant, but don't make promises that might jeopardize your status.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Times are changing and so are you. Let your intuition lead the way. The ideas you come up with will allow you to help yourself and others. A plan to save money will work well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Plan to have fun and get things done. Surround yourself with like-minded people, and you'll find a way to protect what's important to you. Set the standard instead of adopting a plan you don't condone.
