HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Jan. 30, 2012: Many crosscurrents mark your life this year. Some of you might be scattered, whereas others decide to become involved with one or two opportunities. You might experience tension, as your home life might not reflect your essence. If you are single, the timing for a major commitment could be off. If attached, the two of you like spending time alone together. Do it more often! Taurus can be a stick in the mud. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Taurus.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Curb a need to be overly possessive and touchy. You’ll see situations differently from day to day. You gain constant new insights. Don’t fight the inevitable process.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You could be quite tired with everything that is happening around you. Step out and start manifesting your vision of how life needs to flow.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Your smiling style takes you to a new level of understanding. However, you might not want to express everything that you are feeling.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Others can be challenging, but they don’t realize that you are used to their act. You don’t need to react.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Others always wish they had what you have. What they don’t realize is that you really work on the qualities they admire.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Push yourself to detach, even if you are feeling overly emotional. You simply need to do something differently. Be open to the possibilities swirling around you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You could be challenging and working very hard to make a difference. Your sense of direction emerges and could cause a problem, as it could be different from a partner’s.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Defer to others, making sure you see life through renewed eyes. How you handle a personal matter could make a difference.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Give 100 percent in your life, and you will feel good no matter what happens. That kind of security is important. Confusion surrounds what you hear or what you say.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Others note your smile, energy and extra effort (actually, you might not even be aware of your demeanor). Let go of demanding such strict behavior from yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • If you can work from home, do. Your mind is on overtime working through a security-related issue. Clear out confusion with a loved one.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Your unusual communication skills emerge, allowing many people to pull in closer or ask questions they have been putting on the back burner. You laugh, and others open up.
