CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some people lower their energy level to avoid participating fully in life. Beware of those who use tiredness as a defense. Avoid those who wear exhaustion like an armor.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It's true that a bold choice will open unforeseen opportunity down the road. So will any choice, actually. In today's case, consequences will happen more quickly than usual.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are some who test the limits to know where they are. In polite society, alarm bells won't sound when the boundaries have been crossed. Reactions are more nuanced. This is tricky stuff. Is it really worth the risk?

Answers will guide a new pursuit. You'll become increasingly self-sufficient through 2018. You'll be part of a new team in March. Aquarius and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 50, 2, 12 and 45.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "When I turned 18, my mother told me the story of how she graduated high school, took a summer vacation to an exotic location and, upon her return, found out that she was pregnant. The person I call 'Dad' isn't technically my father. To make matters more complicated, I don't get along so well with the dad I grew up with. Something was always off, and I could never figure it out. Now I know. I do have to respect him for loving my mom and taking care of her even though she was already pregnant with someone else's child. Now I really don't know what to do -- to find my birth father or to just let things be. Even though we don't always get along, I don't want to make my dad mad. Signed, Confused Cancer."
This is about you and your history. Your dad may have feelings about your finding your birth father, but you can't let his baggage be the deciding factor in this very personal quest. Cancer is an intuitive sign, easily hurt but also fiercely courageous. You'll know if the time is right for you to find out about your birth father. Honor your inner wisdom.
