HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Jan. 25, 2013: This year, you often juggle different views, feelings and thoughts. You wonder whether to do what you feel or do what you think. Others are attracted to you, as clearly you are a people-person. If single, there is a constant flow of potential suitors. If attached, a newfound intensity emerges, especially if you defer to your sweetie. Leo is proud. Be careful – do not offend him or her. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Leo if born after 6:20 a.m. Before that time, the moon is in Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You could encounter a misunderstanding or a problematic situation. If you let yourself get sucked into it, it could ruin a creative moment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • What you thought about doing today just might not happen. Others’ demands or interests very well could distract you. You might feel a need to turn your attention elsewhere.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Speak your mind, but realize that not everyone has a similar opinion. Be open to other ideas or to someone else putting down what you believe to be a nugget of wisdom.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • You could discover that a creative idea falls flat. Let go, and let others find a different response or solution. Focus on what you enjoy.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • A little reticence disappears quickly. You could make a big deal out of a problem, or you could decide to let it go.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Honor your energy level. If you feel discouraged by a conversation or a situation, try not to give it to much attention, especially as there is little you can do until later.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You might have the best intentions and want to keep a meeting all business, yet you might discover a problem. Acknowledge what is going on behind the scenes.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • When others flake out, who steps up to the plate? You don’t need to look around. You are at your best when you are in the position of handling a problem.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • Deal with others directly, and open up to someone about what you feel is a difficult situation. You might hear that you are creating the problem in your head.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Listen to your inner voice, and you might realize that you’re not on the right course for you. Others might disagree.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Defer to others, and listen to their fears. A boss might be very difficult, and your approach might not be appropriate.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You can move through a project quickly once you confront the first obstacles. Good will and support among those who are involved does make a big difference.
