HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013: This year you often question your direction and energy. You have what it takes; you are just being challenged. Your creativity soars for the most part, except at key moments. Learn to defer to others. If single, your desirability summons many potential lovers. If attached, you do a lot of kissing and making up this year. Respect each other, and don’t quarrel over your differences. Taurus’ earthiness appeals to you. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn if born before 1:52 p.m. Afterward, the sun will be in Aquarius. The moon remains in Taurus all day long.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Note how different your ideas are from a close friend or family member. Avoid giving this person the cold shoulder or picking a fight.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You might feel more in harmony or sure of yourself in the morning. Make phone calls, and catch up on a friend’s news. Do not forget to reach out to someone at a distance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Back off from a situation that obviously is transforming. Express your caring to someone you put on a pedestal. Detach, and you will understand this person better.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Share a goal or desire with friends; their support will surprise you. They also might shorten the path to your objectives.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Take a stand. You might not be as sure of yourself as you would like to be. Others seem more challenging than in the past.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Opt for an escape. For some, this happening could be taking a drive to a flea market. For others, this will involve losing themselves in a movie.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Deal with someone directly. A subtle comment might not be heard or internalized. You would prefer to be more discreet, but you also want to be effective.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Tension builds as the day goes on. You understand where others are coming from and why they are doing what they are doing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • You are willing to express your ideas, and you are prepared to act on them. Still, someone could be unusually testy, or you could be worried about this person’s reaction.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Your creativity peaks early in the day as you are making plans. You could be justifiably cynical about the cost of bringing certain loved ones together.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You might decide to stay close to home, but by the end of the day, you are likely to be throwing the party of all parties.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Use the morning for making calls and visiting those at a distance. In the afternoon, you might become more critical about your company.
