HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Jan. 9, 2012: You often find yourself juggling various interests. You wonder whether you should do what you want to do or what you think is correct. If single, you could make a new friend a little crazy with these alternating mood swings. If attached, walk in your sweetie’s footsteps to understand his or her reactions. Cancer can be challenging and very emotional. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Cancer until 8:35 p.m. Pacific time, when the moon enters Leo.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Push comes to shove when dealing with the many people in your life. Coming to an agreement happens because of someone’s effort.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You have your hands full, as people seem to come loose trying to decide what to do. You seem to be unusually centered as you eye your many options.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Your ability to weigh the pros and cons of a situation results in solid decisions. A partner looks at financial matters very differently than you – here is the source of disagreement.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Your intensity might not be enough to swing others to your type of thinking. Understanding will evolve if you relax with a situation.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Honor your abilities, and know when you have had enough. If you can loosen up about a loss, you’ll come out ahead. You are probably the hardest on yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Use the daylight hours to the max. Understand that others have different objectives. Pressure builds as you start to see an either/or situation develop.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You can only do so much. Honor what is going on. Don’t put yourself in the position of having to make a decision right now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You might want to rethink a personal matter. Success comes from thinking outside the box. Be willing to open a new door or try a different approach.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • You might want to talk about a situation between you and a dear friend, loved one or partner. How you deal with it and the choices you make could stun many.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You could be caught between a rock and a hard place. You deal with others directly, knowing what you want. The response you get might be unanticipated.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You have much to get done, yet your inner voice points to another direction. Check out a suggestion. A partner might be quite peeved by a choice you make.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You listen to various suggestions. To you, nearly everyone has reasoning to his or her thinking. The real issue is what you want to do.
