Horoscopes for Jan. 23, 2013

By
From page B7 | January 23, 2013 |

Sometimes it’s hard to put our chins up and march on – not because we’re sad, but because there is so much distraction in this parade of a life. It’s why horses need blinders. We may have to create our own version of “blinkers” in order to get anything accomplished under the dizzy void-of-course Gemini moon.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Even though you’re generous, you’re also mindful of the utility of your gifts. If it won’t be used or appreciated, it’s a wasted effort. You’ll be careful how and to whom you share now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). On this day, you taste the good life. What makes it the good life is that it’s the only portion of life you can fully experience and influence at this time. Realizing this makes it ever sweeter.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A snake must give up the outer parts of his former self in order to grow. You’re not like that – you grow best by giving up something inside. You’ll let go of remnants of your former self that no longer applies.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don’t have to analyze where you went wrong because it will soon go quite right, rendering the exercise useless. For now, hold on with faith. Trust that you’re meant for good things.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your personal plot is determined by the contents of your character. You’ll work to uphold and refine your values, namely the ones that have to do with keeping your word.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may come up against a difference of pacing and it’s a healthy thing to deal with. After all, you don’t need someone who always sits when you sit and jumps when you jump – that’s what shadows are for.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may catch yourself in the act of trying too hard because you want something very badly. Back off and examine the many options available to you. Holding on so tightly to this one is restricting and needless.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). No one is trying to deceive you; however, there are those around you who want you to react in a certain way and they will position themselves accordingly. You’ll be wide-awake.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Does your heart in fact have an agenda that your head is not aware of? The evidence points to “yes” as you find yourself doing the opposite of what you had planned.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s said that many love the king and few love the pauper. But the king still insists that it’s lonely at the top. And the pauper knows his small circle give true affection without ulterior motives.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You like your friends to agree with you, though you don’t require it. In fact, today you’ll appreciate their contrary opinions a great deal. Constructive criticism will help you make the best choice.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s something sweet in reminiscence. For you, it’s not really about being stuck in the past. Rather it’s about creating a past that mingles poetically with your present point of view.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. This is a grand, crossword puzzle of a year. The answers come easily over the next six weeks. In April, you’ll fill in the empty blocks that stump you with the help of smart friends. February is a chance for heart connection. June brings travel and a satisfying victory. There’s new, lucrative work for you in March. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 36 and 28.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My daughter has been called an old soul by many people who meet her. No one ever says this about my son, and I think it’s making him feel bad, even though we don’t know what old soul really means. It seems to be positive. Is it?”
To subscribers of the theory of reincarnation, old souls are thought to have been on this earth many times in various capacities. Imagine life as a cosmic video game in which a player returns to the earth with the same goal every game – to perfect the soul. When one has played this video game several times, one begins to learn the ins and outs and thus have a more mature perspective about what it takes to manage the game. Someone who just sat down to play the game for the first is no better or worse than someone who has played the game one hundred times. (Just like a toddler is no better or worse than a 34-year-old person.) One is simply more experienced than the other. My advice is to think about your son’s talents and strengths and remind him and others of these qualities whenever he old soul compliment comes up.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Princess Caroline of Monaco has devoted her life to philanthropy, especially through her work with the Red Cross, the Princess Grace Foundation and as a Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations. Like a true Aquarian, the protection of children, families and human rights at large are of primary concern to her. With Mercury and Venus in Capricorn, no challenge is too daunting.
