HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Jan. 20, 2012: This year you often switch from being gregarious and open to being closed off and in deep thought. Others often question when to approach you. In a sense, they see you as a wild card. If you are questioning strange attitudes, know where they are coming from. If single, forming a bond in such a changeable period could be interesting. If attached, your significant other could be reticent at times! Be patient with others. Capricorn might understand you too well!
