Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013: This year you become more stubborn than you have been in the past. Once you become entrenched in a certain way of thinking, you have a difficult time seeing any other path. Work on being nonreactive, and make it a point not to act on your anger. You will be learning to claim your power. If you are single, you could fall into a volatile relationship. Be careful, as it is unlikely to mellow out. If you are attached, work on new ways of expressing your frustration and anger with each other. TAURUS can push you hard.
