    Some transformations in your lifestyle will be foisted upon you in the year ahead, which you might at first resist. But as time unfolds, you will discover they are working to your benefit and ultimately be exactly what you would have wanted.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Adopting a poor attitude will make unpleasant tasks harder than they need be or make difficult jobs assigned to you impossible to complete. The only way to be productive is to maintain a positive bearing.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) It would prove to be unwise to attempt to force any changes that aren't coming easy for you. Remain patient and bide your time until all the pieces of the puzzle start coming together on their own.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) A clever someone might impel you to accept an agreement that benefits him or her more than it does you. If you fall for this and make a commitment, honor your word so you are not branded as unreliable.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) It is apt to be one of those times when no matter how hard others try they won't be able to please you; however, unless you turn that around, you could damage a friendship or two. Be grateful instead of critical.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Be sure to share the credit and benefits equally with those who participated in the successful completion of an endeavor. If you attempt to take all the bows, there will be no one around to help the next time.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Once you begin a project, do everything possible to make certain you see it through to completion. If you lack the necessary tenacity and sense of purpose, you won't stick it out to any kind of successful conclusion.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) Innately, you are a bold and assertive person, but you also have a tendency to become negative and withdrawn. If you don't take charge of yourself, this may be one of those times where you will be fearful of paper dragons.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) It is nice to be kind to those less fortunate than you, but if you allow a friend to get too far indebted, it could hurt the friendship. If your pal is avoiding you, it is because he or she doesn't have the funds to pay you back.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It is much too easy to contribute to our own defeat by trying to do things that oppose our better judgment and if you are not careful, this may be the case for you. Be mindful not to function in this modus operandi.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Any problems with which you are now contending will be essentially due to your own making. It is apt to be because you see others as your adversaries instead of allies. Reverse this thinking.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) By dwelling on old errors, failures or unproductive activities, you will unconsciously repeat this behavior. Get your head turned around and live in the "now" — or suffer the consequences of being negative.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Those upon whom you normally depend won't be around to bail you out just when you need them the most. The sooner you realize you are on your own, the better it will be for you.
