SHARE Georgia Nicols horoscopes for Jan. 4

MOON ALERT:  We have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Full Moon peaks in Cancer at 10:53 p.m.

IF Jan. 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Matt Frewer (1958) shares your birthday. You are conceptual and capable of excellent visualization.  You quickly see what is wrong with something. Personally, you are highly organized and can accomplish tasks with a minimum of effort.  This is a testing year of growth and building. This growth will occur beneath the surface. Do not make major changes yet — wait until next year. Strengthen your financial position by reducing your overhead.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The Full Moon today makes you choose between your responsibilities with home and family versus your responsibilities to your job and career. At this point in time, you cannot ignore your job and career, so handle this dilemma with tact and diplomacy.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid controversial subjects because discussions about politics, religion and racial issues will be touchy. People feel the energy of the Full Moon and will overreact. These kinds of distractions might also cause an accident, so be careful.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep your wits about you when making decisions about cash flow, money, earnings, major purchases and anything to do with shared property and inheritances. You might be uncertain about whose interests to put first — your own or the interests of someone else?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place. Furthermore, the Moon is the ruler of Cancer. Naturally, you will feel heightened reactions, especially dealing with partners and close friends. Avoid arguments, because this Full Moon energy will be gone in 24 hours.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The energy of today’s Full Moon could cause disruptions to your work routine. People might be difficult to deal with. (This could include you!) It might also bring certain health concerns to a head. Fortunately, this influence quickly subsides, which is why patience is your best ally.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is an accident-prone day for children in your care or your own kids, so please be patient. They feel the Full Moon energy. Even your family dog can feel it. The Full Moon makes people take things too seriously or too personally. Lighten up.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You feel caught in a tug-of-war between the demands of home and family and the demands of your job and career. You can’t keep everyone happy, which will bother you because you are a people pleaser. Please note: You cannot ignore home and family.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Slow down and take it easy because the Full Moon will make you feel scattered and distracted. In turn, this could lead to an accident or a faulty decision. Don’t feel pressured. Wait until you are ready to act or you know what you really want.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Disputes about cash flow, possessions money and earnings are likely because of today’s Full Moon. You might also have arguments about responsibilities to someone or who should take care of someone else’s property. If you wait 24 hours, your answers will be clear.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Today the only Full Moon that is opposite your sign all year is taking place. Naturally, this will bring stress to partnerships and close relationships. Because this influence is short-lived, just be patient and wait until it’s over. Problems tend to increase before the Full Moon and diminish immediately afterward.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There’s an undercurrent of uncertainty and increased intensity because of today’s Full Moon. This is why people are too quick to react or ready to criticize. Knowing this, you can be the person who remains calm and sane. Be part of the solution and not the problem.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):Difficulties with friends are likely because of today’s Full Moon energy. This doesn’t have to happen, but it could. Don’t let things build up until they are a Mexican standoff. Look for a win/win solution. Or better yet, do nothing until Monday.
