Horoscopes for Jan. 24, 2014

By
From page A9 | January 24, 2014 |

The air trine formed by Mercury in Aquarius and Mars in Libra lends the gift of eloquence for those who strive to attain it. Also, this is a lucky alignment for the bold yet politically minded who want to make a diplomatic play for power. If there truly is a mutual benefit to be had, the right words will come.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It is a well-known fact of human nature that if you make something difficult to obtain, most people will want it more. You are not “most people” and can see through trumped-up scarcity marketing ploys.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Stay confident in yourself and your abilities. It all works best when you stand with your head held high today. Don’t fold your cards. Whether you think they are good or bad, play them.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re onto something big, and you can’t do it alone. Unfortunately, the right people are not paying attention. If you want to make a difference, you’ll have to wake someone up first.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). A difference of sensibilities will come into play, especially between generations. What you consider to be common knowledge, someone else considers to be radical free thought.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s like you’re working in a void. You need a brainstorming group. You might not take any of their advice, and their opinions may not be so valid, either, but you’ll be better for hearing all of it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may dream of creating something that catches on, becoming wildly popular in your demographic of choice. Just be warned: This will be a mixed blessing. It will put you in the position of having to re-create on demand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll express a complex meaning with ease. It may feel as though you were always meant to deliver this message. And yet, don’t be surprised if you can’t say it the same way twice. It was very much a message of the moment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A central relationship will improve when you stop worrying about it so much. Worry delivers a bad energy to the subject of your concern. This is a time to let it go.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Usually, wanting to impress is a setup for disappointment. But right now it’s different. You want to impress someone, and then that person is really impressed by you – a rare dynamic, indeed.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The trick is sharing in another person’s dream without sacrificing your own. Warning: It’s nearly but not totally impossible. If you’re going to attempt it, just make sure the other person isn’t a narcissist.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You stand to gain recognition, earn money and, best of all, make a difference in the lives of others. So what are you waiting for? Act on your vision.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Conservatism is a behavior of those who have a lot to lose. In an area in which you don’t have much at stake, don’t play it so safe. You can afford to be experimental, loose and free.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. The union of your mind and body is a feature this year, and the talent you develop will marry the physical and mental in one expression. In the next 10 weeks, you will fulfill a commitment to loved ones that is unspoken but binding. You’ll provide for a large number of people in February and again in August. Libra and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 14, 6 and 10.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Naturally, you want to do what excites you and makes you laugh. Keep seeking emotional intensity from life. TAURUS: Spend your time with the one who makes you marvel and swoon. GEMINI: You want to get inspired, and so you’re ready to get uncomfortable. CANCER: Be enthusiastic around those you love – they need that from you. LEO: You deserve attention and acknowledgement – you’ve earned it. VIRGO: Don’t determine what’s impossible in love – that’s not for you to know now. LIBRA: You want to entertain your love in the way only you can, and that’s your priority now. SCORPIO: Your friends will make you look good. Mix all of your social sets together. SAGITTARIUS: You’ll share who you’ve been in different parts of your life with the person who knows who you are now. CAPRICORN: Whether or not your love will admit it, your support is crucial to this person’s success. AQUARIUS: You’ll be a metaphorical Rockette. Link your arm into that chorus line and join in the high kicking. PISCES: Checking in often with a person who doesn’t need such vigilant care is a sure sign that you’re smitten.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Because the word “Aquarius” is associated with “aqua,” many wrongly assume that it is a water sign like Scorpio, the middle water sign of the zodiac. Aquarius is the water-bearing sign, but it is, in fact, an air sign like Gemini and Libra. With the moon in Scorpio and the sun in Aquarius, water and air will complement each other, creating a fog-like mystique around their relationship.
