HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Jan. 19, 2012: This year you choose to keep much of your life hush-hush, or at least many of your feelings about what surrounds you. Being this diplomatic could be problematic, as you could be misunderstand. If single, someone you choose might be withdrawn and secretive. Be careful. If attached, share more, and your relationship will bloom. It is how you say what you feel that counts. Sagittarius sees past your defenses. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn with a moon in Sagittarius.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You will tend to go overboard, no matter what your intentions are. You want someone to know that he or she is welcomed and cared about.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You might want to rethink an agreement with a partner, especially as you might feel like something is off. This discussion could be a lot more important than you think.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Be smart and allow someone else to take the lead. You might question what is best. You cannot always be a leader, and allowing someone else to assume the role is wise.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Pace yourself. You could be unusually tired and dragging. You tend to go to extremes emotionally, losing self-discipline with fatigue.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Suppressing your imagination is close to impossible. Funnel some creativity into your work, if need be. A flirtation could take on a life of its own.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Tension seems to build from within. Whatever you are doing is causing a conflict. Listen to your inner voice, and realign your activities to what suits you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Keep communicating the basics about a situation. When you do so in your charming style, the people involved might be more taken in by your style than by your message.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Indulging a child or loved one could be great fun, but be aware of the costs of such actions, emotionally and financially.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • You are feeling empowered, and want to help others feel the same. Though you are generous of spirit, others might not be ready to receive it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Note a tendency to personalize comments. Pull back some, and recognize that everyone’s world centers around him or her.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Manifest your true desires, as others seem willing to help you. Curb spending, even if you think you are on the victory trail.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • You handle responsibilities well, though you could be drained by another’s cold exterior. Don’t hesitate to ask for the feedback you need.
