HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2010: This year, you open up to new thoughts and different ideas. You could easily overthink problems and wonder in which direction to head. Observe rather than make changes immediately. Give yourself the space not to know. You will demonstrate more sensible and kinder leadership. Libra can push you hard.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• Defer to others. Each person wants to do a project his or her way. Let it happen. You will gain a different perspective as a boss or higher-up demonstrates his or her willfulness.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••• If you want to see a situation change before your eyes, detach and distance yourself from the whole matter. It might seem like everyone has a better idea. Rise above the situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• Listen to news from someone who cares much more than he or she lets on. Creativity flows forward, revealing another perspective.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••• You feel pressured by a partner, but take time to honor your own needs right now.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••• Is someone trying to coerce you into doing something else? You might have an unusually strong reaction. Straighten out a misunderstanding.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••• Be aware of what is being offered. A risk might not be worth the thought. A child or loved one could be touchy. Think twice before taking a risk.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) •••• You might be all smiles, but you sense someone’s feelings. Realize what is going on behind the scenes with a family member or roommate.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••• You have the right words for a difficult situation. Don’t judge someone who might not have the same gift for gab as you. Confirm meetings.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• You might need to make a financial investment. But you might want to hold back from taking an uncomfortable risk. Is there another path to the same end?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• Someone might trigger a strong reaction. Rethink situations with that knowledge. Test an idea on a trusted associate.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• Reach out for someone at a distance. You are ahead of the game with a possible new venture. Travel, education or a foreigner could play a significant role.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) •••• You might see a situation differently because of a partner’s feedback. Listen. Make a decision only once you are sure you have all the facts.
