HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Jan. 30, 2010: This year, your actions could be, at best, provocative to some and distorted to others. Make sure you have all the facts and are not coming from a place of judgment. If single, you meet people with ease, yet maintaining a long-term tie is challenging at best. If attached, the two of you need to work on mutuality and better understanding. Sign up for a seminar of interest together. Leo has a strong ego and is challenging.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• The high energy of the full moon could prove to be somewhat wayward if you’re not careful. Pressure builds in a new direction. Instead of being reactive, try being direct.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••• Know that you cannot control situations, even some of the time. Events today will point to the truth of this statement. Kick back and go along for the ride.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• Listen to all the possibilities. Inevitably, you will feel like you need to squeeze them all in. Choose the most appealing; after all, this is your Saturday too.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••• Curb your need to “have,” as you become extraordinarily demanding. Trust that you don’t always have to ask. A request actually could have the reverse impact.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• You certainly feel empowered and capable of handling someone’s seeming contrariness. Perhaps this person might not be getting the gist of what you are saying.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••• If you simply feel as if you would like to do something different or more creative, then do. Make it OK not to join in with the crowd.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••••• How you handled a changing matter might have worked in the past, but not any longer. The time has come to recognize that the impossible can and will happen if you give others half a chance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) •••• Others want what they need and desire. You have little to no problem with that. Open up to possibilities that someone you respect suggests.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• Ask a friend or loved one to hop in the car and join you for a day exploring a new area of your state, town or nearby countryside.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• A partner challenges you, but how you accept and deal with this behavior determines the net results. Avoid personalizing what this person says.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• Your ability to be clear and direct takes you down a different path from many. Don’t make any snap judgments. You see a matter differently from someone else.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ••••• Hardship is defined in many different ways, depending on the person. Don’t let this work become part of your thinking, or else you could make it so.
