Today’s Birthday (Jan. 22). You have a lot to think about this year. You’ve got theories to prove, details to analyze, fantasies to explore and gadgets to invent. With all this mental exercise going on, you don’t need any other changes. Keep your surroundings intact. Only fix the things that break. And try to be more creative.
Aries (March 21-April 19) – Today is a 7 – There are a few problems coming, but nothing you can’t handle. They all have to do with money, or rather the lack of it. You can’t use your meager resources to fund everything, so don’t.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) – Today is a 6 – You’re stronger now, so stand your ground. Make sure those in authority understand your position, even if it’s not popular. You may have to explain it over and over, but that’s OK. You’re a very patient person.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) – Today is a 7 – If you weren’t so cute, you wouldn’t get away with half of what you do. Today, you might not get away with things. A person with no sense of humor wants the results you said you’d produce. Better make it happen.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) – Today is a 6 – You have a friend who’s good to be around. The two of you don’t talk much – there’s no need to. You cheer each other up just by doing things together. Hanging out with that person now will be good for you both.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) – Today is a 6 – You may have to report to a higher authority. Better have all your ducks in a row. Another person can help you with the tables and graphs that show how much you’ve accomplished, but when it comes to mistakes you’ve made, `fess up to those on your own.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Today is a 6 – Beware of complications concerning travel, long-distance calls and the Internet. There are about five things that could go wrong, and they may happen in rapid succession.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct 22) – Today is a 7 – Uh oh. Looks like your bubble may burst. Reality is interfering again. What you want costs much more than you have. Should you give up your dream? Heck no! Dreams are more important than so-called “reality.” Back to the drawing board!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) – Today is a 5 – It may feel as if you’ve come to a grinding halt. Something you thought would work, doesn’t. Must you change your plans completely? No. Just take new input into consideration.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) – Today is a 6 – Many of your theories are about to be tested. It’s much easier to think about these things than to actually do them. But keep hammering away at your precious new theories. You’re building something useful.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Today is a 7 – Why do you go to all that bother? To show the people you care about how much you love them, of course. It’s not for the money. Never has been, never will be. You’ll soon get another chance to show them. Grab it.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) – Today is a 7 – You may feel inhibited or weighted down. You’re going through a testing phase. Don’t worry. Just answer your own questions.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) – Today is a 5 – It’ll be easier to concentrate. That’s always a problem, but now you can manage it. Next, put a lid on your worries. Guilt is a big waste of time. If there’s something you can do about whatever you regret, do it. If not, confess. Promise not to do it again, then get on with your life.
