Horoscopes for Jan. 11, 2014

By
From page B7 | January 11, 2014 |

Critics can be motivational and helpful under this Gemini moon, so don’t deny yourself the chance to improve by dismissing them out of hand. Then again, if the criticism doesn’t make sense right away, or if it feels overly negative, don’t dwell on it. Give yourself five seconds to either see the usefulness of the comment or disregard it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some think it’s their job to be the agitator. Avoid them, because an agitation-free environment will be surprisingly enjoyable. So what if there’s nothing to say about it later?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Designers of amusement park rides make it pretty obvious for the passengers to know when to get off the ride. Other situations in life aren’t as obvious, but if you’re observant, you’ll sense the right moment to exit.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be in a position to persuade someone to do what ultimately will be in everyone’s best interest. Should you use the tickling feather or the hard boot? Start with the feather, and if that doesn’t work, switch.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a belief that’s weighing you down, or maybe it’s a pile of clutter, but the answer is the same. Dead weight, whether metaphysical or tangible, is dead weight. Lose it, or it will slow you down.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Out of fondness, you’ll talk about a certain person a little more than others, ponder your next meeting and go out of your way to please this person. And the feeling is mutual.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s fine to show your work before it’s finished today. The work in progress is impressive because observers must fill in the blanks with their minds, thus investing themselves in the vision.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Regarding your past mistakes: Just remember that you didn’t make them all at the same time. Also, no one other than you even remembers most of them. So you get the benefit of the lesson and remain stain-free!

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Because you want to know someone, you’ll take the time to build a bridge between your two worlds. It’s a lot of work upfront, but once it’s built, you can cross it whenever you want.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Living fully is your style, as you’ll demonstrate with today’s shenanigans. You’ll have an adventure before lunch and three more before your head hits the pillow.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don’t let yourself be used by someone who hasn’t figured out that people aren’t steppingstones to success. People may point out the path and offer a steady hand of support, but they, unlike stones, have feelings.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Aim your efforts at one person. When you know whom your work is for, it will be specific and personal and somehow more relatable to many others.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your project needs momentum. If you stop for lunch, a phone call or an errand, getting back into the swing will be hard, if it happens at all. Don’t stop until everyone agrees you’ve arrived somewhere.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Act to flesh out what’s in your imagination. You’ll obtain higher planes through straightforward self-expression. You’ll reach a goal in February. March increases your mobility. Your professional reach expands with every trip. June and September are the most romantic times. Family comes together in July. Sagittarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 43, 1, 20, 24 and 32.

NEW YEAR, NEW CAPRICORN: In 2014, those who want to make big changes will be cosmically empowered to do so. For Capricorn, this makeover energy settles into the area of self-reflection. Because Capricorn is goal- and challenge-oriented, the goat usually isn’t as reflective as other signs. Forward movement is Capricorn’s preferred mode, and watching the rearview mirror instead of the road ahead is no way to drive. However, in a conscious effort not to repeat mistakes and with a burning desire to work smarter instead of harder, Capricorn cruises down memory lane willingly and often during the first half of the year. In the early stages of this retrospective, Capricorn may have difficulty determining the proper credence to give each event. Leaving emotions like pride and shame out of the process will be helpful whenever possible. For better or worse, the past is done. An objective state is needed for sorting through the facts, noticing patterns and correctly analyzing all data. Often Capricorn will find that the motivation for an action fades from memory — but of course it was strong enough at the time. Capricorn should trust that whatever action was taken, there was a good reason for it.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The auspicious stars that decorate Cody Simpson’s birthday signify one of his best years yet. This Capricorn pop star was born when five luminaries were in the sign of powerful ambition and hard work. The moon and Uranus were in Aquarius, the sign of philanthropy. His Mars in Libra reveals a sincerely romantic nature and inherent people skills.
