    In the year ahead, you will discover that you'll finally be able to fend for yourself in matters where you always had relied upon others. As a result, you will enjoy far greater independence in a number of things you have always wanted to do.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Should you have extra responsibilities or duties thrown at you, adopting a negative or resentful attitude will only make things worse. Don't compound the unpleasantness with more anger.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Encountering someone who has a forceful personality may make you feel uncomfortable, but challenging his or her views won't make things better, either. The best way to handle this person is to simply ignore him or her.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — When an authority figure throws his or her weight around, don't take it out on an innocent friend by being guilty of the same offense. Get your mind off the outrage before it eats you alive.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) — It will be a mistake to use anger to support a weak position, because all it will do is make you look worse in the eyes of others. Keep your ego out of the picture, and a facade won't be necessary.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you consider yourself a giver and someone else a taker, chances are you will be correct, because your offerings can't justify what the other is expecting in return.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — When it comes to your relationship with another, be extra careful not to be too bent upon having your own way. If you appear to be cantankerous instead of cooperative, you will suffer the consequences.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you end up painting yourself into a corner, you are apt to quickly look around for a scapegoat. However, if you do that, you had better first wipe the paint off your finger before pointing it.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Be careful not to allow winning or losing to take precedence over a good relationship when engaged in a competitive activity. It is far better to lose a few points than it would be to lose a good pal.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Strive to be a high achiever if that is important to you, but take care that your method or tactics won't damage your reputation in any way or you will lose far more than anything you can accomplish.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you come off like a know-it-all, you can expect someone in the crowd to deliberately challenge your smarts. If you are not prepared to live up to your bravado, it could turn out to be a humbling experience.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don't assume any long-term financial obligations at this point in time, especially if it really isn't necessary or if it is to purchase something frivolous or foolish. Down the line, you will rue the day you did so.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Being totally free to make your own choices and do your own thing will be of utmost importance to you, yet it isn't likely you will grant the same privilege to your companions. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
