SHARE Horoscope for Friday, Jan. 8, 2021

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 7:30 p.m. Chicago time. The moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you might use your influence to promote a charitable organization or a meaningful event because you feel genuine concern for the welfare of others. Consider this your chance to stand up and be counted.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your idealism is aroused, which is why you might get involved in charitable activities. You will feel more concern for foreign countries and people from other cultures. You might also be attracted to philosophical and religious ideas. (Heady stuff!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You might encourage a partner or close friend to share their wealth with someone in need. You might be involved in a fundraising project. You might also use your contacts to get practical assistance for someone who needs it.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Because it’s easy to be aware of the needs of others, you will be more willing to help someone out. (It’s true that whenever we can imagine walking a mile in someone else’s wedgies, we generate more sympathy for them.) This might happen for you today.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Coworkers might approach you with their problems because they see you as someone who can offer advice or a sympathetic ear. Possibly, you are the one seeking advice from someone else. Don’t push yourself at work because your physical energy might be lower. No biggie.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you feel sympathetic to the plight of children, especially children who ar suffering from hunger, poverty or abuse. If you can do something to help, you will. Your creative, artistic side is also alive. Grab every opportunity to express your talents.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you feel unusually sympathetic with a family member. You might be concerned if they’re upset, and look for ways to help them. However, this same astrological influence will also make you want to create beauty in your home. (This is second nature to you.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Don’t be hard on yourself if you spend lots of time daydreaming or being lost in a fantasy world today. It’s just what’s happening. On the upside, your imagination is aroused, which means you can dream of things and visualize something that will delight or help you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If you’re dealing with financial matters today, be aware of two things: You might give away the farm because of a fanciful, whimsical idea. Secondly, you might spend too much money on something luxurious. Whatever you do, wait a day or two to give everything a sober, second thought.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today you are more tuned in than usual, which is why you will be aware of the needs of other people. Naturally, being aware of their needs, you will be more willing to help them out. You might also become involved in charitable activities because you feel sympathy for those who are less fortunate.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a rather mystical day for you. Without question, you are plugged into the Great Ether. (You might be aware of this; you might not.) Stay in touch with your muse and your sensitive imagination because they are finely tuned today. (Good for writers of fantasy.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You are a sensitive soul, and today you will feel drawn to help others who are in need. You might want to help a friend. You might also choose to be active in a charitable organization. Do whatever you can because nothing is more important in this world than kindness. (Well, high points for a ham and cheese croissant.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer Elvis Presley (1935-1977) shares your birthday. You are very aware of the impression you create on others. You are competitive but also tolerant. Now you will start to see the benefit of all your hard work. About time! Focus on building solid foundations now and for the future. Work with purpose. Physical exercise will be important, which is why you will enjoy physical activities and sports.
