TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 17)
Your best strategy is to come up with one single goal for the year. Commit yourself and tell everyone. The more public pressure the better. Next month brings a wealth of helpful people. In June you will be called by the energy of a place; opportunities await. Your family will grow in the late summer. Libra and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 14, 29, 47 and 8.
Mars and Saturn Challenge. To anticipate the needs of another before those needs are expressed in words is to earn trust, admiration and affection in one fell swoop. On the other hand, to assume needs inaccurately and try to fulfill them will not only be perceived as overbearing; it could also start conflict. Those are the stakes as Mars and Saturn do some terse positioning.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) What if you believed that there was nothing wrong with you and you don't need to improve a single thing about yourself? In that case, all efforts are optional -- a fun experiment. Any resulting benefits are a stroke of felicity!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The game is on, and there is an unconventional and imaginative prize at stake. This bit of whimsy is more motivating to you than money or validation from a VIP. For reasons you cannot explain, you simply need to win.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21) There are a lot of questions you could ask yourself to spur the situation in a better general direction. The very best question today just might be: "How can I have the most fun with this?"
CANCER (June 22-July 22) You're safe -- safer than most of humanity that has ever lived. The biggest threat to you is in how you interpret what's going on. Is it stressful? Sure. But not too stressful. It's doable. You can handle it, and you will prevail.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) It really doesn't matter where the blame properly belongs. Step up, assess the situation and begin repairs. If the broken thing is a relationship, you'll be especially speedy and adept at fixing this.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your contentment generates joy in others. Your smile melts hearts. Who knew it was possible to make such a difference in the world just by being genuinely happy?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Today the passion you feel for a cause or a kind of work is more powerfully energizing than romantic fervor. One action will lead to the next, and soon you'll be swept into a dizzying momentum.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Even the most ordinary, worn-in topic can be made riveting by a skilled speaker, a phenomenon you'll experience today when a certain intriguing someone speaks the plainest, most sparkling words to you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) One source of encouragement is not enough, especially if it's a source that's very familiar to you. You need more support, and you'll get it when you branch out and tell new people what you're up to.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Everyone feels fragile sometimes. When it's them, you have compassion, telling them to take it easy. Do the same when it's you. Sure, you're tougher than most, but you are also every bit as deserving of compassion.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) How can you feel more at ease in a situation? Part of it is just getting to know people better. It takes time, and it's worth it. When you're comfortable, the charisma kicks in. You get 'em laughing and loving you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
In the case of public praise, it's good to know you're appreciated. On the other hand, acknowledgement can kindle unexpected feelings in you, such as embarrassment. For this reason you're driven to do low-key or anonymous work.
