Horoscopes for Jan. 10, 2014

From page A9 | January 10, 2014 |

If you had to create your own personal coat of arms, what is the symbol that would most meaningfully represent you? The trine of the sun in Capricorn and the Taurus moon will illuminate such personal symbols. Stay observant, and these representations of our consciousness will show up in surprising places.

ARIES (March 21–April 19). You’ll be attending an event. If this experience were a book, you would skip some of it – namely the filler that feels bloated with too many details. You can afford to skip that part in real life, too.

TAURUS (April 20–May 20). You’ll be dealing with people you don’t necessarily agree with or even like, but you still have to figure out how to best manage the interaction. One success recipe: honesty, levity and a smile.

GEMINI (May 21–June 21). Everyone wants to be understood, and yet most people barely understand themselves – so how can they understand anyone else? Your talent for clearing up misunderstandings will be in high demand.

CANCER (June 22–July 22). It’s a time to get lean and mean in terms of a project or something to do with your lifestyle. This will lead to positive results. Simplicity and economy are your best defenses. Downsize before you are downsized.

LEO (July 23–Aug. 22). Just because something is not hard doesn’t mean it’s easy. What’s worth doing today will take a few simple steps. The extreme repetition of those steps will be what makes for a successful outcome.

VIRGO (Aug. 23–Sept. 22). Here’s the straight truth: You are compromising too often and too much. Instead of starting off with what you think the other person will go for, start off with what you want.

LIBRA (Sept. 23–Oct. 23). One of the secrets of your success is that you use the words “our” and “we” often. Standing for your group, even if it’s only a group of two, will start a wonderful string of events.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24–Nov. 21). Do what you want to do today. There will be people whose needs compete with yours and other reasons for subverting your interests, and all are manageable if you have the will. Get on your own side.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22–Dec. 21). Being around the same person or people for too many hours and days in a row could bring out a less than optimum side of you. Arrange to get away. You deserve this.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22–Jan. 19). You’ll have a string of well–timed interactions, and this is not only because the universe is on your side these days. It’s also because you are observant and you follow your intuition.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20–Feb. 18). It won’t matter to you whether you have a little or a lot. What will matter is that what you have is your own. If you have the choice, you’d rather have very little and be able to call it completely yours.

PISCES (Feb. 19–March 20). Everyone needs novelty in their day, though few have the guts, talent and ideas to provide it. That’s where you come in. You don’t mind if they laugh – it means you did your job right.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll be the one to whip up the enthusiasm of your group. A beautiful relationship inspires you and brings you to new levels of excitement and action in the next 10 weeks. And it’s still good after that, as a project will have you working and building together. March, July and October are your biggest money months. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 12, 39, 17 and 5.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: What you sought from a relationship will be different from what you’re getting, but this really is what you needed. TAURUS: You’ll connect with your love through instinct, not intellect. GEMINI: There are endless reasons to celebrate your love, so don’t wait for a special occasion. CANCER: Everyone is weird in some way. You prefer a partner who is weird out loud to one who is quietly weird. LEO: You’ll feel peaceful when the pattern of your relationship makes sense to you. Until then, your mind will be occupied as if you were working on a math problem. VIRGO: If you can tolerate your partner’s brand of noise, the reset is cake. LIBRA: Make decisions. Don’t let things waffle in limbo. SCORPIO: Sharing meals is sharing love. SAGITTARIUS: Treat your love like royalty for the day. Don’t worry, it won’t always be expected of you. CAPRICORN: You are mighty charismatic now, and many will care to earn your favor. Be sensitive to this and emotionally generous wherever possible. AQUARIUS: Good manners will fix a relationship. PISCES: Though you may have been looking for someone smart and spiritual to share with, you’ll get funny and physical instead.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the Capricorn sun reflects off of the moon in her Gemini costume, these signs have a special affinity for each other. Capricorn is fascinated with Gemini’s multifaceted personality. The powerful goat often plays by the rules, but Gemini’s sense of mischief inspires Capricorn to loosen up and have more fun. Gemini feels on top of the world with Capricorn’s brand of practical and solid support.
