HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Jan. 2, 2011: This year, many people find that you are more grounded but also more withdrawn. It is true you will tend to keep your own counsel and not be quite so verbal. If single, check out a new suitor, and date for a while to make sure that he or she is emotionally available. If attached, the two of you benefit from weekends away together. Sagittaruis reads you cold.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • Keep reaching out for those at a distance who, perhaps, you have not spoken to in the past week. It is never too late to wish others a happy new year.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Be sensitive to what is happening with a parent or older friend. In some cases, key people could make demands that take you aback somewhat.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • You could be far more of a challenge than you are aware. How you handle a changing situation could vary. Certainly there isn’t only one way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • You have been putting such an enormous effort into the holidays, nurturing those who are less fortunate or less content. Perhaps the time has come to finally take a break.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • You might be right about letting go and simply enjoying yourself with those around you. Someone who is too serious could make you very uncomfortable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Stay close to home, and honor your feelings. You might want to stop and do something just for you. A walk by water could be just what the doctor ordered.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Keep talking and reaching out to others. A long conversation could be inevitable, but it is important. A neighbor has a way of unintentionally messing up your plans.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • You have a unique quality of being able to put yourself 100 percent into what you are doing. To some, you look overindulgent.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • You are in your element. Still, you have a hurdle or two to jump, especially with a friend. Innovative thinking might help.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Assume you don’t have all the answers. You listen to someone you respect and discover how much you have to learn and incorporate into your thinking.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • You are a sign that naturally gravitates toward friends. This Sunday demonstrates just how important your pals are. News from someone might be unclear. Don’t worry.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You might be causing a stronger reaction than you intended. In fact, you could be pushing someone away whom you never intended to.
