HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Jan. 14, 2012: This year many new opportunities appear involving your public image and long-term desires. For some of you, the impact could involve your work; for others, it might even be a political commitment. If single, you meet several potential sweeties. If attached, through a mutual commitment, the two of you will see an enhanced closeness. Libra pushes you into the limelight.

A baby born today, Jan. 14, 2012, has a Sun in Capricorn and a Moon in Libra if born after 5:28 a.m. (PST). Before that time, the Moon is in Virgo.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Visualize what is happening behind the scenes. You could be a little off and nervous when dealing with the sporadic behavior of others.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Out of the blue, when you least expect it, a stroke of good luck hits. If your attitude is positive, it could turn this situation into a victory dance.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Allow (and relish!) more give-and-take between you and another person. A friend’s message tosses your imagination into fifth gear.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Slow down and listen to feedback from a family member. You could discover that one particular person might be unusually controlling or difficult.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You see a situation through another’s eyes as you listen and identify with him or her. You might be surprised by some of what this person says or shares when relaxed over a meal.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Your ability to let go and move forward is marked by your choice of various activities. You laugh, and another person relaxes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Follow your instincts right now. Make plans with people you want to be with. You see trust develop in a key bond.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • The unexpected causes change and demands you to flex. You like plans to be locked in tight. Don’t resist the tide of events.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Your enjoyment of the moment often is enhanced by having companions and friends around you. You cannot dismiss the importance of a child’s or loved one’s surprising behavior.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Your creativity comes forward, allowing greater give-and-take in a friendship. A key person shares a little too much, but look at the action rather than the words. This person trusts you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • The unexpected occurs. As a sign who loves surprises, you will find that this event is right up your alley.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Your considerate and sensitive behavior might not be noticed. A child or loved one might feel pushed. Adjust plans not only for him or her but for you.
