Horoscopes for Jan. 22, 2014

By
From page B6 | January 22, 2014 |

Compromise, diplomacy and tact are the lunar gifts of the Libra moon, and yet due to odd circumstances and tensions, the morning isn’t as harmonious as the Libra moon wants it to be. Everything eases up in the early evening, when the moon angles Mercury kindly, inviting people to let off some steam and talk about the day.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). People will want to help you, but don’t let them today. Self-reliance is a source of pride for you, and you will push the limits of your physical and mental abilities in the name of independent effort.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are someone’s biggest influence today, and with that power comes the responsibility to behave in the way you’d like to see this person – and maybe the world in general – behave.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The term “just deserts” has its origins in what’s deserved or merited and is not at all about the sweet treat at the end of a meal with which it is often confused. However, sometimes what’s deserved is a sweet treat. That will be the case today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You could participate in a gabfest and should be very careful about what you say in this scenario. Much could get lost in translation. The best strategy will be an exit strategy.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). “Friend zone” or “relationship zone” – it’s your choice. By navigating the categories, you’ll make your life easier. You are happy when you are emotionally organized.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Before you point out the flaws around you, have a solution or two ready. This will distinguish you as a leader and the kind of person who takes care of business.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Be an investigator. It’s in your nature now, and besides, it will be lucky for you to know the origin of things. Until you understand how they started, you won’t know the trajectory they are on.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Reading will be important to your development and may even change the way you approach your days. At the very least, what you read will make you feel accomplished.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The thing you do as an escape will wind up being the exact opposite of escape. It will connect you to the moment and to the people who share it with you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No matter where you go, you won’t have to pretend to be anyone to fit in there today. Take a deep breath, and be yourself. Remember that confident people don’t mind admitting fear and doubt.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Life dreams are similar to the dreams you have at night in that they have a way of fading, changing and transitioning into different scenes. You’ll be letting go of an old dream and embarking on a new one.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In a multimedia-driven world, mixed messages are the norm. Which should you believe: the down-home version or the high-gloss mass media equivalent? Only you can decide.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You believe that all things are connected, and you experience many lucky “coincidences” this year. A stellar decision you make in February will lead to riches. March’s friendship will help you grow your talents. The love flowing through your life increases in April. Family thrives because they pull together in July. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 6, 30, 11 and 45.

GEMINI SECRET SUPERPOWER BREAKDOWN:

The Obvious: Gemini’s mouth has an intelligence all its own, and the twins can be witty and sharp without the least bit of effort. Gemini quite naturally keeps the right words packed and ready to fire off at the perfect moment.

The Uncanny: Gemini gets away with telling the truth that no one else can get away with saying. Usually, it’s because the lightness and quick timing Gemini employs don’t give people the chance to put up their social defenses. Gemini can get people laughing about things that they were trying to hide or deny just moments before.

The Weird: The sign of the twins can perform a complete and instant personality change without changing a single thing about their clothing or appearance and be unrecognizable as though wearing a disguise. Gemini Marilyn Monroe used to do this. She could change her demeanor and either go unnoticed or attract a crowd.

The Extremely Useful: Gemini’s endless supply of icebreakers makes this sign a party starter.

The Quietly Helpful: Logic is a strength of Gemini, and often this sign is good at math, no calculator necessary.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The life story of NFL running back Ray Rice would make an inspiring movie, as he rose above the tragedy and loss of his early years with heart, hard work and an indomitable will. Despite being one of the shortest players in a generation, this Super Bowl ring holder brings the heat. He was born when the sun and Mercury were in fleet-footed Aquarius and the moon was in Libra, the sign of balance and teamwork.
