Your aims this year are going to make you very single-minded. You will likely have a personal financial goal that will prompt a do-or-die feeling all year. You're going to face a number of planetary influences that will have you measuring your progress, thus giving you a concrete feeling of moving ahead.
However, starting right out of the gate with the Moon in Aries opposing Mars in Libra on January 7, you'll also feel the tension between maintaining a satisfactory personal life and achieving a deeply desired objective. That may not be helped by friends wishing to keep you "in the circle," but family, on the other hand, will be more supportive. Family members might have minor quarrels at times but they're easily overcome.
The ultimate point is that your hard work is producing results, and few can really object to that. The aspects altogether are good for personal goals, provided you don't let outsiders guilt you into deviating from your course. True friends will understand your needs!
