A bitter battle between freedom and commitment is about to ensue -- if it hasn't already begun. Relationships could get especially troublesome and even at work you'll feel confined and restrained. As the year progresses, and you find yourself even more desirous of a 'free' life, consider your reactions carefully.
There's a good chance that everything you're doing -- pushing people away, trying to escape from a current situation -- is really a defense mechanism.Freedom is a state of mind, and no one is completely free to do everything they want. It's all about give and take. What you need to do is figure out if someone or something is really taking too much from you, or if you're just making excuses to get away. Are you really trapped, or are you just bored? It's possible that you've let yourself become extremely picky and you're waiting for the perfect person or situation. Before you can come to any accurate conclusion, you're going to have to spend a lot of time getting to know yourself and understanding what it is you need from a relationship or career. That's going to have to happen before you can have success with either.
