Horoscopes for Jan. 24, 2013

From page A9 | January 24, 2013 |

It makes no sense to fight for peace. Peace is a much easier state to attain than one might think. What’s hard is realizing that sometimes we actually don’t want peace because there’s some perverse charge in fighting. The Cancer moon encourages soul searching on this and other complicatedly simple topics.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). No one is happy all the time. Watch out for the ones who want you to believe that they hold the key to unlimited smiles. Their agenda is likely financial and not philanthropic.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll work harder to make a certain impression on the people around you. It’s not that you want to be recognized or lauded. Rather you want to create a certain feeling in people.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A good personal trainer is aware of the body’s tendency to adapt to repeated movements. If you want to see a difference, you have to change up the exercises. That’s what you’ll do today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Talking takes energy, but sometimes not talking takes even more. Acting appropriately in general is an energy expenditure that we often take for granted. To know the value of self-control, observe the way children behave untended.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s new hope for a struggling project. Trust that all these bits of information you are learning will come together in some useful way. Set your expectations carefully – you’ll receive approximately what you expect.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There is healing between people who think the same things are funny. Laughing releases negativity and the kind of unease that quite literally causes disease.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are talented and your efforts have value – but not because of your talent. Because you work to ensure that you are of great use. The more useful you are, the more you’ll be paid.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Why form an opinion yet? Neutrality is a perfectly acceptable mode of thinking. You don’t even have to try very hard to be neutral. You just have flip your internal “analyze” switch to the off position and there you are.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Even though you have hopes that a certain endeavor will pay off, trying to make it do so too quickly is not beneficial to you. Just relax. In the mean time, show your plan to an expert for feedback.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you know down deep in your heart that someone really values your contribution, you don’t feel the need for that person to constantly show it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The ones you’ve taught are coming into their own in some way. In a truly selfless act of leadership, you will step to the side so your students can rise to greatness.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Emotional intelligence is your strong suit now. You have some insight into people and you’ll use it to tap into positive emotions and motivate progress.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. As much as you enjoy your privacy, this year brings attention so embrace your special celebrity status. You’ll shine in a crowd and be singled out for an important job in February. You’ll meet physical goals in March. April is a welcome change to your personal life. New influence sparkle up your days and nights. Scorpio and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 40, 1, 14 and 19.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: Am I or am I not meeting up with Channing Tatum on the astral plane? I think I am. I’m not crazy. I’m an accountant for a busy bakery, and I have plenty of family and friends around me who do not have any idea about my double life as girlfriend on the astral plane. I’ve been dying to tell someone that I visit Channing Tatum in my dreams almost every night but afraid it would change how they think of me. My question is, is it wrong? — Anonymous Aries

Do you mean, is it wrong because Channing Tatum is married to Jenna Dewan-Tatum with a Tatum tot on the way? Or do you mean is it wrong because you’re an Aries and he’s a Taurus – next-door neighbors on the zodiac wheel who can get along brilliantly as long as they are not fighting like siblings? Or do you mean is it wrong because there are so many millions of others who also happen to be meeting up with Channing Tatum on the astral plane? Whether it’s wrong or right is not for me to say. I would, however, encourage you to exercise your sparkling imagination and zest on this plane in big and exciting ways, dear Aries!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Neil Diamond wrote songs for the likes of Elvis, the Monkees and The Hollies in addition to topping the charts with his own hits like “Sweet Caroline” and “Solitary Man.” The legendary Aquarius was born with the moon and Venus in Capricorn, the sign of ever-young expressions of art and life. No amount of success will quell his inner drive to do even better.
