IF January 19 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Journalist Lloyd Robertson (1934) shares your birthday. You are a creative dreamer; and often, your life has many ups and downs. You don’t hesitate to express your opinions, even if they shock others. You have great enthusiasm for life, which is why others enjoy your company. This year is the beginning of a fresh, new nine-year cycle for you. Open any door! Start a new business activity.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a fun-loving, playful day. In particular, you’ll enjoy schmoozing, especially friends and people in group situations — classes, clubs and conferences. If you think something fishy is going on behind the scenes, you might be right. Keep your eyes open.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It’s easy to schmooze with people in authority — bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. However, just make sure you don’t promise more than you can deliver. It’s easy to do this because you feel confident, friendly and full of hope.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Although your ambitions are aroused, you might feel hesitant about asserting yourself. (This in itself should tell you that you should wait.) Nevertheless, travel plans are promising, and romance with someone from another culture or a different background is sweet.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): People feel big-hearted and generous, and this includes you. However, if you have to make important decisions about dividing something, perhaps an inheritance or shared property or anything that you own jointly, don’t give away the farm!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a good day to enjoy the company of others. In fact, you will attract fun-loving, entertaining people. However, it is not an ideal day to defend your own best interests in sharing something because your energy to do this is weakened. Don’t agree to anything important.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Enjoy the company of co-workers, customers and clients; however, do not promise more than you can deliver, which is exactly what you might be tempted to do. Friendly bonds of camaraderie and good cheer might seduce you into agreeing to something that is unrealistic. Don’t do it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is a fun-loving, creative day. Accept all invitations to party! Enjoy movies, the theater, sports events and playful activities with children. You might be tempted to go overboard partying, especially with food and drink — just be aware of this.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will enjoy entertaining at home or just hanging out and cocooning in familiar surroundings. That’s because your energy to work is low-key; you would rather have fun and relax. Real estate opportunities might appeal. Just make sure that they are not too good to be true.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are ready to promise the world to anyone. (Partly, this is because that is who you are!) Just be careful you don’t go overboard because you are feeling full of largess. In fact, a family or domestic issue might create confusion in your life. Take it easy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be careful about financial transactions because you are given to excess. (Whaaat?)Yes, this is not usually your style. You are generally realistic when it comes to finances because you respect the value of things and you hate waste. Nevertheless, guard against crazy spending, even though this is still a good day for business and finance.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Relations with others are warm, friendly and upbeat – no question. You’re in the mood to schmooze because you want to have fun and explore adventure. Seek out people who are generous and fun-loving so that you can share this energy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Today Mars is in your sign lined up with your ruler Neptune. This is a strange combination, and it can create confusion in you. In one way you want to go forward and do something; nevertheless, you feel hesitant. Don’t abuse your body with drugs.
