HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014: This year, you will be authoritative when you need to be. People listen to you. You also will follow through on any project or job that appeals to you. Because you tend to go to extremes, you might act out in a relationship, especially if you are attached. Your significant other has the gift of flexibility. Praise him or her for that quality. If single, what appeals to you today might not be so desirable tomorrow. Taurus is as grounded as you are, but he or she is more stubborn! A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Aries if born before 6:24 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Taurus.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Others seem to be acting independently and not in unison with a project. Keeping everyone on the same page will be challenging.
