HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Jan. 20, 2011: This year you evolve in a new direction. Often you let others dominate the social scene. Your friendships remain key, and you will do whatever you need to do in order to maintain them. If single, it is likely because of a friendship that a love relationship develops. You could have quite the case of spring fever. If attached, the two of you gain through focusing on a long-term goal. Leo likes people as much as you do!
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • You are juggling others’ very different responses to the same event or act. Friends tend to gather on one side, while a loved one seems quite contrary.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Your perspective seems to conflict with an authority figure’s request. Do not mix your personal life with your professional life.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • Play it low-key. A personal matter or an issue regarding property will be more easily resolved than a snafu at work. Focus where success lies. Your instincts guide you financially.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • All work and no play can be a problem, as you discover early on. Why push yourself so hard? Remember, life is for living. Join in a conversation over lunch. Share more of yourself.
