Horoscope for Jan. 26, 2018


Moon Alert

Avoid shopping and big decisions until noon Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The pace of your day will accelerate today because you have lots to do! Get out and get hustling! Short trips, errands, conversations, meetings plus increased reading and writing are just some reasons this is a busy day. (You need to talk to someone.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today your mind turns to money, cash flow, assets and wealth. You might also briefly ponder your values. Something that you own might be important to you, which is why you don’t want to lend it to anyone. You get comfort from what you own.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The Moon is in your sign today, which heightens your feelings about everything. Keep this in mind before you overreact. However, when the Moon is in your sign, it also brings you some extra good luck, which is always nice! Ask the universe for a favor!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Mars and Jupiter make you playful today. And hey — it’s Friday! However, the Moon and the Sun are an indication that you are just as happy with some privacy and taking a backseat role. (You want to hide a bit.) Maybe you will do both?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A conversation with a female acquaintance is meaningful today. (This is the classic day to share your hopes and dreams for the future with someone because their feedback will help you.) You’re also focused in a big way on partnerships. It’s an interesting day!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Personal details about your private life might be under discussion for some reason today, especially with bosses, parents and VIPs. This could be anything from a credit check, to a police stop, to the fact that someone is looking at your resume. Just be aware that this energy is at play.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a fun Friday for Librans! Do something different! Go someplace you’ve never been before. Grab every chance to travel if you can because this is the perfect time for a vacation or a chance to party with pals. The arts, sports events and fun activities with children will all appeal!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It will please you to tie up loose ends related to red-tape details about taxes, debt and inheritances. You cannot ignore issues related to banking or shared property — not for long. With Mars in your sign, you’re energetic, but you will prefer relaxing at home.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You have to talk to others today — you really do. For starters, you want to enlighten someone about something. In addition, you have a strong desire to discuss something with a partner or close friend. Nevertheless, be accommodating and ready to go more than halfway when dealing with others.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s Friday and you are ready to schmooze with groups and friends. Nevertheless, you will not overlook certain special details that make you feel organized because financial issues are high on your list right now. Ka-ching!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It’s Friday and you want to par-tay! Go right ahead because celestial influences do support this. Flirtations, romantic opportunities, fun social occasions, sports and anything related to theater and the arts will be right up your alley. Enjoy fun times with kids!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You will enjoy a quiet evening at home to wrap up the end of the week. You need to catch your breath and put things in perspective. You might also want to entertain at home (low key). An important conversation with a female relative will interest you.

If Your Birthday Is Today

TV host Ellen DeGeneres (1958) shares your birthday today. You are vigorous, energetic and bold. (And yes, rebellious!) You are self-confident and you love a challenge. This is a wait-and-see year, more slower paced. You need rest and rejuvenation. It’s a time of cooperation with others. Focus on business and personal relationships. Look for ways to practice kindness and be helpful to others. Be calm, cool and pleasant.
