HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014: This year you eye a new beginning. You will tend to be overserious, and you sometimes might take a joke or a fun comment the wrong way. Be aware of this tendency to make more of a statement than the other party intended. If single, you are likely to meet someone you feel is your soul mate. You naturally will take your time getting to know this person. If attached, understand that you might be a little too me-oriented. Do your best to make time for your partner and his or her desires. A fellow Capricorn might be more challenging than you think. A baby born today has a sun and moon in Capricorn.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • The new moon christens the New Year. This specific new moon carries responsibilities and a serious tone with it. This event is merely a passage.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You might not appreciate the insight you gain, yet you still know how to look at the big picture. Do not make more of a situation than is necessary.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Make it your pleasure to share your resolutions with a loved one. You might find that a child or a new heartthrob could aggravate you and be a source of irritation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • The new moon affects you more than it affects any other sign. Partners, friends and loved ones could feel a bit out of sync.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • You could be playing it unusually low-key, perhaps because your mind is on taking care of another person.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Today’s new moon might affect your mood toward a loved one, or if you’re single, it could ignite a new romance. Children could be very touchy or serious.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You could be more irritable than you have been in a while. Whatever symbolism this particular day holds for you might need evaluation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Speak your mind with a little diplomacy, and you will get positive results. Others could be unusually sensitive and reactive.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • A loved one might need to kick up his or her heels. Avoid a discussion, at least for today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • You might want to revise your New Year’s resolutions after some thought. Do it today, while the symbolism of the New Year still exists.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You will sense that a partner or loved one is off or depressed. You might choose to express your sensitive side when interacting with this person.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • The new moon could give power to an important resolution or decision on your part. This notion might stem from an extended period of deep thought and evaluation.
