Your intellectual curiosity knows few bounds and it tends to lead you in the right direction. Learning and communications can take you into new territory and afford you the opportunity to make the right connections. This is a year of renovations, eliminating bad habits, and ridding yourself of outworn attitudes that have previously held you back from moving forward. Your attitude now is one that more readily embraces changes.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies many of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful. Watch, however, for blowing things out of proportion.

Your energy levels are generally strong this year, and your sense of timing better than usual. You tend to instinctively know the right course of action to take in most situations.

Professional as well as personal opportunities are bound to emerge this year. The ability to see the “big picture” helps you to plan more effectively.
You will be making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. This should be an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently.
Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.

Enthusiasm runs high, the desire for freedom from restrictions is strong, and thirst for adventure is with you.
