CAPRICORN (Dec 22 - Jan 20)

If something is ending, let it go. A challenge from Saturn makes your shore up your defenses and dig in your heels. Your level of commitment will be tested. In August you may say yes to an opportunity you might want to consider but not want to have. New things are presented to you - take advantage of the opportunities. Stable things become unstable, so you have to roll with the punches and let it pass. In April you become an innovator. A lucky break in June needs consideration. In July don't count on those around you for help. Mid-September puts you in a manner more easily accepted. May and August, focus on what matters to you and you may have to deal with someone in authority. So new opportunities and good things are possible, with positive energy. Luck is on your side, assuming you don't make hasty or foolhardy decisions.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21 - Feb 19)

Someone is demanding a change, whether you like it or not. Trying new things feels rewarding. A hard look at yourself and your choices can be useful. In July you learned some useful lessons. You will have inspiration about a direction in what you want to go. Something new, but you have to be prepared. You want to be more organized. Help comes from other people, and new ideas.

If you try to transform elements of your life or within yourself, there will be a sense of positive growth. Don't let a person manipulate you, and release old patterns. You will have a sense that your psychic rush is guiding you in specific directions that you don't normally consider. In June Uranus could bring you some surprises into your life via someone close to you. You might find new ways to love your life as a result. You want to break free, but it seems as though someone always has a hammer at your head beating down and holding you in place. It makes you confront your need for rebellion, autonomy and independence versus the desire to be loved and to be there for close companions in your life. Calculated risks combine with preparation and hard work to succeed. And if in a relationship with someone who is stern, critical and demanding, speak up, express your dissatisfaction and still be the free-spirited, optimistic person. Maintain balance, hope, and sanity when making choices.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20)

In August you might decide to try something new - perhaps with a close companion.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21)
Pluto, the planet of birth, death and transformation, in Capricorn will teach you to be smart and you'll learn that it's easier to go along with the changes that Pluto suggests than to fight them, because Pluto always wins. Neptune in Aquarius squares your sign and creates some chaos and confusion, two things you very much dislike. Impulses will motivate you, and you should follow your intuition. In late October, you make a change to something you've always wanted to do. You may be working hard at a new project and sense it could be good for the future. From July to September you have a feeling that a guardian angel is looking out for you. Trust in life and some significant changes in your life that started last year.

But it will be in your best interest. Some increased responsibilities to family members in late December causes you to take serious steps to set something right. You'll have help from someone who wants only the best for you and can make you achieve more of your goals. Early in your life you usually had a sense of what you want to do and that you will be successful at it. It is that you desire the security that success can buy, not so much that you crave money for money.
LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)
This year in mid-February to mid-April energy from the planets will bring a change into your life or it could impel you to become the instrument of change in someone else's life and you will nag until those bad habits are let go.
