Happy birthday for Thursday, Jan. 29, 2009:

This year, you have the unique opportunity to walk through a new door. If you would prefer to approach life in a more positive way, you’ll get your chance. You must simply walk on out and make what you want happen. There is a natural resistance to money flowing as you would like. If you are single, you enter a new phase in your dating life. Someone quite substantial to your life’s history will appear in the near future. If you are attached, planning a common goal could make a big difference and keep the two of you more actively involved. Pisces has many grandiose schemes to make money.

Aries (March 21-April 19) ••• If you look around and observe, you’ll discover there is a lot going on, not just with you, but also with others who might be making you uncomfortable. Simply note how a boss or higher-up reacts to communication. You could get tired of working it out.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) ••••• Friendship, meetings and dealing with associates highlight your day. If you can assume an offbeat or different approach, you could blaze a new trail. Though no one can guarantee success, your odds are high.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) •••• Your high visibility earmarks your plans and could stop you from accomplishing as much as you might desire. Evaluate a change with your eyes open, and listen to a trusted friend whose opinion often differs from yours.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) ••••• Honestly, you might want to rethink a problem with greater care and understanding. Though you rarely agree with a key person, he or she still plays a significant role in your decision making. Listen to your inner voice.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• Make an effort to come in closer and have more to do with a key partner or associate. You might not be comfortable with what could come up out of the blue. Investigate an offer that could revitalize your work – to say the least.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••••• Others come toward you. This activity puts you in the unique position of picking and choosing situations, issues and people. Learn to answer people more clearly. Investigate the possibilities.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••• Easy works, and you’ll see much more than if you were in the ring trying to handle the problem. In fact, the unusual solution pops up out of the blue. Listen to what someone shares, even if it makes you uncomfortable.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••••• Ever playful, you might want to address a situation that is close to your heart, even if it is business. What comes out could be stunning and important for you to know.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) •••• Keep your eye on the big picture. Despite the natural ups and downs, you will be able to maintain balance and direction. You approach life from a far more intense and yet detached manner.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• Note the changes around you or that you might be contemplating. The same old ways might no longer feel right. Rather than rebel or do something you could regret, open up a conversation.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••• Don’t push so hard to get your way. Stop and rethink what is happening within you. At the same time, detaching from the immediate issue will allow you to get a greater grasp of what is occurring.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ••••• You might believe you are on the same course as others, but the reactions you are drawing might clue you in to another reality. Listen to yourself.
