HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011: This year you open up to many new concepts. How this process begins will be your call. If you honor your inner voice, your life will flow. If single, meeting people is easy. Look to summer 2011 for an exciting romantic opportunity. If attached, walk away from fighting. Learn to respect your differences. Drop controlling behavior. Cancer has the same issues as you. Their approach is different.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Pressure starts feeling like the norm. A boss makes demands that really cannot be met at this point. Brainstorm away, and you’ll find solutions that could appeal to both parties.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Keep stretching past an original plan or concept. You might need more feedback in order to get past a self-imposed restriction.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Do you feel pressured? Is it of your own design or a realistic problem? Be careful in your dealings with others. Someone might be far more manipulative than you realize.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Your best efforts could get thwarted. You have hit a major roadblock, be it a person, several people or a structure in the system. When this type of event occurs, back off.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Assuming a low-key role with others remains the smart action. Use extra time well, doing research or going off to do what you want. Pressure builds around people and crowds.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • One person makes a demand that puts you in a position of disappointing others. You might be juggling far more than any one person can handle.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You handle the lion’s share of responsibility at home and at work. You might feel most uncomfortable with what is on your plate.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Just as you seem to be on cruise control, a boomerang lands in your path. You make an adjustment, internalizing and acting on the implications of the boomerang.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Restructure your finances so they work for you, not someone else. Focus on the long term. Do not sell yourself out.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • If you see a lot of flak around you, hold up the mirror. Is it possible that you are being demanding, controlling and/or caustic?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • It might be easier to revamp your thinking than demanding that others change, which is unlikely to happen. Maintain your schedule, even if working through an issue.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Your creative drive points to a special path, one which others might balk at and back off from. You understand the implications but decide the risk is probably worth it.
