SHARE Georgia Nicols weekly horoscopes for Jan. 11

ALL SIGNS:Except for a speed bump on Wednesday when power struggles might take place, this is an alive, electric week full of spontaneous possibilities. The influence that makes this “electric” and “spontaneous” is that both Mercury and Venus will be dancing with Uranus. The big thing to know about Uranus is that it can suddenly be a host of possibilities, and just as suddenly shut them down. “Now you see it; now you don’t.” This means if something presents itself that looks tempting – act fast. You won’t have the luxury of mulling things over. (Take note Librans.) Ah yes, he who hesitates, is now miles from the next exit.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This is the classic to meet new people, especially people who are younger or perhaps, creative and artistic. You might encounter them in classes, groups or conferences. You might also meet them by way of introduction through friends. These new people will probably be different from the kind of person you usually hang out with. They might make you feel younger and more alive. They might also introduce you to new situations or vistas that, in turn, cause you to modify your goals. It’s exciting. Be open to what comes your way and be ready to act quickly if someone suggests a good idea. “She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Stay on your toes this week because unexpected conversations with people in authority might suddenly take your life in a new direction. And it looks like this new direction will be beneficial because it might open up new areas and avenues for you. In particular, it could involve technology, aviation or even the radio. However, please know that with whatever transpires, you will have to be fast on your feet. Therefore, rev yourself ahead of time. Be on the lookout for unusual, modern suggestions from bosses, parents or teachers that will ultimately benefit you in the future. Meanwhile, this same surprising influence could mean a sudden affair with a boss. Or you might receive unexpected kudos. (“Thank yuh, Thank yuh very much”)

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Without question, sudden and unexpected opportunities to travel for pleasure will probably fall in your lap this week. If this is the case, you will have to act fast. Right after reading this column, why not pack your bag? Alternatively, unexpected opportunities related to publishing, the media, higher education, medicine and the law might also materialize. Likewise, younger, attractive people from other cultures and different countries might suddenly be in your life. Psych yourself to be ready for action. You don’t want to kick yourself later for having missed an opportunity to simply because you couldn’t act fast enough. (“Who was that masked man?”)

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This year is a promising year for money and earnings for you. However, this week, although the sudden and unexpected opportunities that come to you will be financial and practical, they will not be related to your earnings; instead, they will be related to the wealth, resources and assets of others. Surprise news about an inheritance or shared property, or perhaps something related to taxes, debt and insurance disputes will suddenly materialize. If this happens, it’s important to know that your window of opportunity will be brief. Quite likely, it will happen in the first part of the week. Because of this narrow window you will have to move fast. You might have to let go of something as well.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a fascinating week for you because you will probably meet exciting, unusual people. Quite likely, these people will be younger, or perhaps in the arts or involved in creative projects. You might meet these people through a close friend or your partner. Alternatively, it’s also possible that your partner or close friend will be the one who suggests something exciting, thrilling, surprising, and yet, a bit scary. You are Fixed sign (like Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius). This means you are nervous about surprises because you like to be in control of your situation. You might not have that luxury this week. However, knowing this ahead of time, you can rev yourself into action. “I’m ready. Bring it on!”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Even though this is a fun-loving, pleasurable month for you, this week, in particular, will be full of fast, unexpected changes related to your job. There’s a strong possibility these changes will involve high-tech equipment, computers, electronics, the radio or anything to do with aviation. You almost certainly will learn something new. You might be thrilled to work with new equipment. However, this change might also come with the introductions of a new staff member or coworker, especially someone who is unusual and different. For some, this could mean you have a chance to spin off and be self-employed. Fortunately, whatever happens will likely be positive and uplifting, and it will broaden your scope on something.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Love at first sight might take place for some of you this week because quite literally, it’s in the stars. A sudden infatuation with someone younger or artsy and creative might grab you by the throat. Others will have surprise invitations to social events or a quick getaway. Surprising news related to children, and the arrival of a baby, might also be what happens for you. Make sure your laundry and dry cleaning are done so that you are ready to accept all exciting invitations. Don’t be caught off guard because your window of opportunity will be brief, which means you have no time to prepare. Be ready for something fun and different that expands your world. A sudden chance for a fun vacation might fall in your lap. (“Should I pack tropical?”)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Each of us will have some surprising, unexpected opportunities this week, and for your sign, these surprises will be related to home and family. They might involve surprising news about a family member. It might be the new addition of something that is high-tech and exciting for your home. It might even be an unexpected guest (a mixed blessing) who is unusual and probably disrupts your household routine. (“Don’t worry about me. Pretend I’m not here.”) Alternatively, a sudden opportunity related to real estate might fall in your lap. If this is the case, you will have to act fast. Whatever happens looks like it will expand your life in a positive way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is an exciting, unpredictable week for you – definitely. The pace will be brisk and different things will be coming at you from all directions. But you like it. New ideas, new faces, new encounters, new places and surprising news are just some things that will keep you off your heels. Not only will external events be surprising and stimulating; internally, you will be full of clever, bright ideas, which means this is a great week for those of you who write, act, teach market, sell or drive for a living. Mentally, your creative vibes will be hot! You will enjoy meeting unusual people and acting on impulsive ideas. Sudden short trips are almost a guarantee. Are you ready?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This will be an interesting week with respect to your finances, your cash flow and your assets, including whatever you own. An unexpected but positive opportunity might impact your cash flow and earnings. This could be a raise or a chance to make money on the side, or even a chance to get a more high-paying job. Similarly, you might encounter a fabulous sale, and suddenly, you feel you have to buy something. (“This 4K TV is under a thousand? I want it!”) It’s important to know that your window of opportunity will be brief, which means you won’t have the luxury of being able to think about it. You will have to act fast! (“We’ll take it.”)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This week, you will be crashing through waves and making new connections because both Mercury and Venus are in your sign, dancing with your ruler Uranus. Like POW, baby! This is bound to bring you new discoveries, new people, and a general sense of excitement and thrills. New ideas and suggestions will surround you. Nothing will be predictable. But the great thing about these opportunities is they will open your world in some way. You will attract exciting new people to you. A spontaneous party might occur. Whatever happens, you will like it because you are modern and fascinated by new discoveries.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a popular time for you; nevertheless, you will encounter some surprises this week, and they will come from an unexpected source. (Like whaaat?) You might start a secret love affair. Or an existing secret love affair might be exposed. (Gulp.) If you are researching anything important, you might suddenly get a breakthrough! “Eureka!” Perhaps something you have been quietly, secretly working on will suddenly come to fruition or really pay off in some way. Something that is hidden and behind the scenes will catch you off guard, but hopefully, in a pleasant way. This secret news might lead to something pretty major – perhaps a better job? Whatever happens, know that everything is going to happen fast, and you, will likewise, have to dance fast to keep up!
