MOON ALERT: After 5 a.m., we have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Sagittarius.
IF Jan. 16 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Model Kate Moss (1974) shares your birthday. You are diligent, hard-working and always do your homework. You see the fulfilment and joy of a job well done. You are realistic about your endeavors. Go slowly this year. There is something important to learn. The first half of this year will seem slow, but soon, your efforts of the past six years will start to show results! Get out into nature this year.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Steer conversation topics to lighter matters and avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues because people’s logic can be flawed. And their anger can suddenly flare up! Bad combo. Easy does it.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid disputes about shared property, inheritances or anything to do with insurance, taxes and debt. This is a poor day to discuss these topics. People are easily angered, and genuine confusion or incorrect assumptions will cloud issues even further.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be tolerant with others because things could go sideways in a New York minute. It’s easy to feel unloved and cut off from others. It’s also easy to feel angry at others. None of this has to happen but relationships are confusing. Go gently.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Relations with co-workers might be strained today because people with more experience or authority might be critical. You might provoke someone or someone else might provoke you. Don’t make a big deal about things. Cut others some slack. Why not?
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Whether it is an issue related to children, or a romantic matter, or about who will pay for something — you might find yourself at odds with others. This could lead to arguments, or you might just feel put out. (Hopefully, your huff will arrive so you can leave in it.)
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Because this is a difficult day to deal with partners and close friends, as well as family members, go gently. Don’t look for trouble. Try not to react if others provoke you. Just let these issues go by, because ironically, tomorrow is a lovely day. Think positive.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You might encounter difficulties in discussions with daily contacts, including siblings, relatives and neighbors. If you sense this is the case — pull back. I say this because lots of people are having communication difficulties, so why even go there? Run away!
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Avoid squabbles about possessions, money, earnings or cash flow simply because this is a poor day to discuss these issues. Confusion and anger will cloud your logic and your ability to communicate clearly. Wait until tomorrow to raise your concerns.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Today the Moon is in your sign at odds with several planets. This is why you feel a bit out of sorts, unloved and misunderstood. Naturally, you feel unappreciated as well. (This is definitely the time to send out for dark chocolate.) Ah yes, it’s always darkest before it gets pitch black.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be diplomatic dealing with others. Above all, do not criticize others. Don’t take things personally if you feel unloved or lonely. This is all just spores in the air. Be encouraged by the fact that tomorrow is an utterly, delightful day. Would I kid you?
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Someone older, perhaps a female, might rain on your parade. (You need this like a fish needs a bicycle.) Try not to overreact because this will get you nowhere. Anger, confusion and disappointment are par for the course with millions of people. Just do something to pamper yourself.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a poor day to ask for approval or permission from any authority figure because things will backfire or go south. Table important discussions until tomorrow or later. In fact, tomorrow is a lovely day. Just cope with routine matters today. Be polite.
