HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012: This year, focus on the quality of your daily life. To make your life work, take good care of your health, treat yourself well and follow a sensible lifestyle. If single, you could meet someone through the process of living. If attached, the two of you will experience more happiness if you share a common hobby. A baby born today before 2:44 a.m. Pacific time has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Taurus. After that time, the moon is in Gemini.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Confusion surrounds the beginning of the workday. Keep asking questions, and clear out the present haze. To others, you act in unexpected ways.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • What might be presented as an opportunity could be nothing less than a problem once you gain a clear perspective.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Let your mind wander. You might want to back up an idea by doing needed research or clearing out a hassle. What motivates someone you look up to might not be clear.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Lie low for yourself, but not to provoke a certain reaction. Given some downtime, you’ll emerge a force to be dealt with.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Just when you thought you had established a set of strong interactions, chaos clouds the situation. When you are clear, you could be shocked by what you see.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You take a stand. Make sure you aren’t dependent on getting a certain reaction. Eventually, without pushing, people will see the light of your ideas.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Keep reaching out for someone at a distance. Your ability to mend fences doesn’t need to happen. Why not let the other party make the necessary overtures?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You have a lot going on, and much comes from a partner who seems to be an open valve into your life. This person cannot seem to leave you alone.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Defer to others. You will gain insight into your own agenda, and also theirs. You might want to see what you have in common, despite different solutions.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • All work and no play is not what the doctor ordered. Your intuition comes through when dealing with a neighbor or a close relative.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Your imagination can get you and others into a lot of mischief. If you decide to suddenly veer in another direction, you could be happier, but others will complain.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • You might want to retreat, as demands seem to come toward you. Whether closing the door at your office or deciding to call in and take a personal day, you need to take care of yourself.
