Horoscope for Jan. 24, 2018


Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful talking to bosses, parents and VIPs today because things are super intense! You might go out on a limb to bring a point home. Or someone in a position of authority will really tell you how it is. (Yikes!) This is a poor day to oppose others. Just listen.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Do not get on your soapbox to expound your opinions about politics, religion or race. Even though you believe in your point of view, you will likely arouse opposition to you! However, you will be able to study something with intense concentration.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you are determined to get to the bottom of something regarding taxes, debt, inheritances, insurance or even shared property. These issues might be up for debate or possibly an argument! Easy does it.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Conversations with others are intense today! You will be persuasive; but so will they! If you disagree with someone, it will be a battle royal. Keep this in mind before you wade into the fray. Is it really worth it? If you can postpone testy discussions, do it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You want to get to the truth of something at work today. You want to know the cause, the subtext, the reason why something is happening. Or perhaps the reason why something isn’t working? Be careful you don’t coerce others to your train of thought. Be reasonable.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Parents must be calm and gentle when talking to their kids today because this is the classic day for intense feelings that lead to hissy fits and meltdowns. Don’t even go there. The whole world is having an intense day today. People will argue because “they’re right.”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Family discussions can go off the rails today, which is why this is a poor day to get cooperation from others. However, you can use today’s intense energy to focus on home repairs, especially related to plumbing, laundry areas and bathrooms plus anything to do with garbage and recycling.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are so persuasive today! You will convince others to agree with you even if you are wrong! You might want to think twice before you exhort others to adopt your ideas. Possibly, you will attract someone to you who is equally opinionated. Look out world!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

There is a lot of busy, intense energy today. You can use it to get to the bottom of some kind of financial question or problem related to money or something you own. Note: If you discuss finances with someone, you might have an argument.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

There’s mucho intense, mental activity going on today! All your conversations with others will be to the point and penetrating, especially because you want to get to the bottom of things. You have the ability to influence others; make sure you use this wisely.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a fantastic day for research of any kind because you will find solutions and answers that you are looking for! Nothing will deter you. Any kind of research, investigative work or attempts to solve a mystery will be successful.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might attract pushy, opinionated people to you today. Or possibly, you become this way with a friend or a group to which you belong? Your discussions today will not be casual. Au contraire! Everyone feels they have a lot at stake!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Michael Ontkean (1946) shares your birthday today. You are easygoing, fun-loving and enjoyable to be with. People like you. This is a time of completions, endings and taking inventory. Review past triumphs and failures as you finish this nine-year cycle. Many will let go of people, jobs, places and things to move on to something new. You are moving away from heavy burdens to something new and lighter!
