As an enthusiastic student of the world, many Sagittarians live up to the old saying about jacks of all trades who are masters of none. This year, make it your resolution to pursue your passion in a more focused way than ever before.

Whatever that goal might be is up to you, and should be based on your particular passion. Your New Year’s resolution should be to launch or complete formal training with a goal of graduating from student to master. You’re a natural teacher, after all; people look to you for leadership and inspiration. This year, make your dream a reality, whether that means working toward becoming certified as a teacher, personal trainer or yoga instructor; pursuing a higher-education degree; or even becoming a professor in a subject you find fascinating. You’ll be truly fulfilled when helping others broaden their minds.
