This is a great year to set the record straight and to begin to rebuild your life.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t get annoyed if someone lets you down. Compassion, understanding and being generally helpful will be what gets you ahead. Don’t give in to anyone who wants you to put yourself out for him or her.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can’t trust someone who is pressuring you. Take charge and you will be able to utilize your own abilities to manipulate whatever situation you face. Don’t give in to something that doesn’t feel right.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stick to what you know. Question what you intend to do and you will lose ground. Trust in yourself if you want to be successful. Don’t overdo just to accommodate others.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotional upset and anger can put you off today. Try not to let personal matters spoil your day or slow down your productivity. Stay focused and refuse to let anyone lead you astray.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a great time to put a little effort into both your outer and inner appearance. A challenge that you must not decline may be sent your way by someone you are totally attracted to. A new beginning looks fruitful.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone is likely to change a deal or renege on a promise today. A sudden response will not be in your best interest. Take your time and let whoever is causing you grief sweat a little before making a move.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are riding a crest so take full advantage of this by networking and following through with all the things you feel will help get you ahead. Invite whoever interests you emotionally along to watch you in action.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stick to the fun or creative things you enjoy the most today and you will avoid complications. Publishing and travel will help you move forward but overspending, exaggerating or taking on too much will definitely stunt your growth.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Travel, persuading others to get involved in what you are doing or even taking a course or seminar that will help you do what you want with greater ease or understanding should be in your plans today. Someone may spring an emotional issue on you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Do whatever has to be done in as quiet and obscure a way as possible if you want to actually get things done. Be inventive and do what no one will expect you to do. An element of surprise will be what gets you what you want.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You have the right of way today, so make good use of it. You can make a commitment, secure your position or even take a partnership that really matters to you to the next level. This is a great day to be honest about what you really want.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Use your ability to make others feel sorry for you and you will get what you want. Be careful: Eventually it will be payback time.
