Horoscopes for Jan. 17, 2014

By
From page A9 | January 17, 2014 |

Venus and Mars aren’t exactly getting along these days, and perhaps your relationship with members of the opposite sex has been strained, as well. Improvements will happen slowly but surely over the weekend. Follow the playful leanings of the Leo moon. True, not everyone has a stellar sense of humor, but many are ready to laugh.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re in an outgoing mood, and you’ll add to your friendship base. Having more friends doesn’t make you a better person, but it does make you a person with more options.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s something you need to get out of your head and into words. Start on paper. It’s better than waiting for things to slip out sloppily in an unguarded moment.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). No one likes to be put through life’s character-building exercises, but everyone who completes them is better off for the experience. Strive to be wiser than the others – and also more modest so they’ll never know.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your friend will be very consistent in his or her behavior, and this predictability is part of what makes the relationship good. You deserve to be around people you can depend on.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One thing you’ve learned from your history with a certain person is that there is something you haven’t learned. There has to be a reason why you’re willing to repeat a pattern despite less than optimum results. Maybe that reason is love.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will succeed because you say you will in a private you-to-you conversation. That’s why it’s crucial to take time before and after events for a private briefing and debriefing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you love a game, you love its rules. After all, what is a game without them? You will get into the minutiae of a scenario and enjoy examining the small details, some of which will have a big impact.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The jokes of comedians often fall flat in their retelling by lay-people. Similarly, what you’re doing seems deceptively simple, but there are nuances involved that only you can make work.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Excellent guests never come early to the party. That’s how you feel about the events of a relationship. You’re not afraid of the future, but you want it to arrive in a timely manner.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re all business in the early part of the day, but when evening hits, you will find you can be happy without a purpose, joyful for no reason and satisfied without an agenda.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The truth will be all you need to break the code that once kept certain doors closed to you. Call it as you see it, and you’ll be let in – to a club, a heart or a sweet deal.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Relationships will demand your maturity and inner poise. Even though this is your personal life, nothing is really personal about it. What you have here is a conflict of interest.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your enthusiasm for a February project will be catching and will net you friends and fans. March brings events so interesting they could go into a book. You’ll help someone heal in May. Professional opportunities won’t be obvious. Look deeply into your work to see where you can make a difference. Be innovative. Leo and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 24, 1, 22, 28 and 15.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You know how to cover up your feelings so well, and that’s why you enjoy the person who sees right through the facade. This one is a keeper! TAURUS: Love is an uncontrollable force, and yet there is much about a relationship that is in your control. Exercise it. GEMINI: Hugs only take a few seconds to change relationships for the better. Give them frequently. CANCER: New friends connect you to exciting options for love and work. LEO: Because you count your many blessings privately, your public persona radiates an attractive fullness. VIRGO: Your private life is marked by mutuality. The people you love spending time with love you right back. LIBRA: Relationships will change rapidly and change back just as fast. Try not to take any of it too seriously now. SCORPIO: An obstacle is lifted out of your path by that strong person who likes you. SAGITTARIUS: With love comes responsibility. Stay aware. CAPRICORN: Expect heavenly moments. Love shouldn’t get stale with age. AQUARIUS: You’ll wonder what credence you should assign to all this flirting. Is it harmless, or does it mean something? PISCES: Someone finds your vulnerability irresistible.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Leo and Capricorn exchange quality attention as the sun in its final days of Capricorn reflects off of the lion’s moon. When they decide to, these two form a powerful alliance – although it usually takes them a long time to decide. Each is so strong as a solo artist that working together requires a major adjustment of approach and style. This weekend, the compromise will be so worth their while!
