You cannot keep living your life as you have been. Something must change, and if you don't make that happen, then the Universe will -- and it won't be pretty. Like a snake shedding its skin, you must peel away at your own layers and protective barriers.
As you do so, you'll become more and more true to yourself -- and only then will you be able to successfully conquer anything else life throws your way.Transformations like this are never easy, and you'll find your year is complicated by power struggles, emotional entanglements, self-denial and obsessive-compulsive tendencies. Accept any challenging tasks that are offered up. They may be difficult, and you may find they bring you to the end of your ropes, but when you finally finish, the end result will take you to a higher level of personal acceptance. Each accomplishment can also help take you to the next stage of your development. Relationships of all kinds will be especially trying and fraught with deceit and secrets. But that may work out in the end -- you'll need to accept that this is a year for you to focus on your own personal growth.
