HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012: This year avoid power plays and conflicts. You often could be disappointed by others’ reactions. Learn not to rely on this type of feedback. If single, you could be attracted to someone who is not emotional available. If attached, the two of you need to agree to disagree. Make different opinions an asset to creating better ideas. Aries knows how to help you out of the doldrums. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Aries.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Your ability to energize and get going marks your decisions. Others naturally want to go off with you on an adventure. Make choices that suit you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Take some time off from the grueling pace. Though it might not be OK in your mind to cancel or change plans, someone else does it with ease.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Your ability to lighten up a situation takes over. An awkward moment is avoided because of your finesse. A friend plays an instrumental role in what occurs.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Your skill and ability to get past an immediate snafu helps clear the way for a very important event or happening. You will assume the lead.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You might have difficulty coming to terms with an associate or friend. This person might have done a total reversal, causing a problem when you least expected it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might want to look at a situation with new eyes. What you are hearing could surprise even you. A partner could do something so stunning that you have to catch your breath.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You might not be sure of yourself. Touch base with a friend, and make plans to meet halfway, if not today, then soon.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Clearly a little exercise hurts no one, and you could gain from making it more of a habit. Choose an activity that works with your daily life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • What you see could surprise you. Rather than stand back, be willing to take a risk. You could have a ball.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You might want to grab an opportunity and move on it. If you do, you might disappoint various people. Think about what you are doing before you leap into action.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Catch up with a close relative. He or she might have some fun news. A neighbor also might want to talk. Maintain your sense of humor with others.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Extremes could be costly in more than the obvious way. A friend does a very strange turnabout, forcing you to look at a situation differently.
