MOON ALERT: We have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Libra.
IF Jan. 12 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Radio host/author Howard Stern (1954) shares your birthday. You are lively, talkative and interested in everything. Because you get personally involved in whatever you do, inevitably, your efforts inspire others. This year you will face a major decision. Save your money in the first half of this year and cut down on overhead expenses because this will help you later in the year. Your integrity and patience will be tested.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be diplomatic and tolerant because it’s easy to ruffle other people’s feathers. If you’re not careful, you could trigger a heated debate or have an argument on your hands. However, if you are skillful, you can flow with the sudden changes people will create around you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your work scene will be interrupted. Equipment breakdowns, staff shortages, computer crashes and arguments with co-workers are just some things that will occur. Part of this is that you want to make improvements, and your efforts to do so are frustrated. Aaagghh!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Parents and people who work with children should be patient, tolerant and vigilant because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Power struggles with children, and with romantic partners as well, might take place. Use your clever communicating skills to make everything smooth.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is not an easy day to deal with female relatives, bosses, authority figures, partners and close friends. Have I left anyone out? Power struggles with others, especially on the heels of something unexpected, will create challenges for you. Be cool.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is an accident-prone day for you both verbally and physically. Therefore, think before you speak or act. It’s easy to get into an argument. Furthermore, transportation delays, cancellations and rescheduling are classic.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep an eye on your money scene because you might find money; you might lose money. Similarly, something you own might be lost, broken or stolen. Stay in touch with your bank account and protect your possessions. Ironically, an attempt to improve something could make it worse. Dontcha hate that?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Today the Moon is in your sign at odds with Uranus and Pluto. Watch your step! Heated arguments with others are par for the course. People are restless, irritable and even jealous. Use your Libran diplomacy to skate lightly over issues.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Arguments will arise about nitpicky, silly things because there’s an element of one-upmanship, defiance and rebellion in the air. You will experience this especially with siblings, neighbors and relatives. Work colleagues are also unpredictable as well as the breakdown of work equipment!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A heated quarrel with a female friend or a member of a group might arise. Try not to get involved. And most especially, resist the urge to give advice or “improve” someone or something. Not today. Keep your head down and your powder dry.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be careful dealing with authority figures, including parents, because unpredictable situations will trigger feelings of impatience, rebellion and independence, making all your communications a bit testy. You cannot push a string even though you can pull it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is an accident-prone day for your sign, so slow down and take it easy. Pay attention to everything you say and do. And don’t get lippy with others, which you might be tempted to do. People are short-tempered, irritable and impulsive. Yikes!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep an eye on your finances and banking because something untoward could happen. Problems with computers and electronics might be an issue. But you might also underestimate something and be surprised at the results. Be careful if you are responsible for other people’s wealth or assets.
