Horoscopes for Jan. 27, 2013

By
From page D4 | January 27, 2013 |

The astral influences that come with this Leo moon might dampen its spirits a bit. So if you feel like an unsatisfied child even though you have a friend and a room full of toys to explore, consider this: Happiness is not a place. Therefore, you can’t get there. You can only decide that you are there.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Can your joy run out, or is it an infinitely renewable resource? You could ask the same question of love. The answer: When you subtract all resistance, the feelings will flow endlessly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It won’t be enough for you to be better than average at what you do. Excelling beyond your peers also brings limited rewards. You’ll be happiest when you do what it takes to advance toward mastery.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). In some aspects of relationships, you are still a beginner. You’ll learn through practice. Each new interaction has something to teach you as long as you don’t assume you already know everything.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). In spite of what self-help gurus profess, there is much valuable knowledge and inspiration to be gained by watching television, as long as you do it mindfully. With the remote in hand, keep your inner critic awake.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your curiosity will be stimulated by areas of interest just outside of your current realm. It only takes one phone call or introduction to break into an adjacent circle and make new friends there.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Shyness is a mask for fear of public opinion. One way to get around it is to agree internally to be disliked. Better to be disliked for expressing what’s really on your mind than to be liked for being someone you’re not.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve built your life with certain people, but you’re not exactly like them. It’s a day to celebrate your differences. It’s wonderful to be part of a tribe and still be accepted as an individual.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). While it’s temporarily wonderful to avoid criticism and impress others with your abilities, it has nothing to do with long-term satisfaction. Concern yourself instead with what feels comfortable and right.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A project gets much simpler once you abandon the pretense of being perfect. It’s unnecessary, not to mention impossible. You’ll be doing yourself a huge favor by simply forgetting about perfection and going for fun.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Maybe you want things the way they were, but no matter how hard you try, there’s really no going back. You’re smarter now. You’ll use the past to build in a new direction.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As the darling of the planets these days, you’ll often enjoy the vibrant feeling of your mind, body and spirit synching perfectly together to help you reach new heights of accomplishment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll have a strong sense of what really matters. It may seem as though this is no big deal, but indeed, it’s a rare and fine quality, as there are many around with trifling concerns.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. In a sense, everything you’ve learned has led up to this year. Something you attain in an irresistible sale will make a huge difference in your lifestyle over the next six weeks. Family depends on you in different ways through February. March brings more discretionary income. June brings a mission or rite of passage. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 1, 11, 46 and 50.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: According to legend, Jupiter overthrew his father, Saturn, to rule as king of the gods. He then split up the universal spoils with his brothers, Neptune and Pluto. Neptune got water and the sea. Pluto got the afterlife. Jupiter got the sky and thunder, oaths, agreements and the general goings-on of the state. A big god, he could handle the big responsibilities – and his planetary counterpart is equally endowed with astrological largesse. Is there anything Jupiter’s energy of abundance doesn’t touch?

The planet of augmented fortunes has a change of direction this week, ending a retrograde that started back in October of 2012. The work of the past four months may not have seemed to add up to rewards in real time. While retrograde, Jupiter likes to play around with the idea of delayed karma. And let’s face it, if we always saw a result for doing good, wouldn’t it cease to be good and start to be something closer to fair trade? The very essence of doing what’s right is that it’s something you do whether you get a reward or not; that’s what makes it right. Hopefully, we’ve learned a lesson or two with the recent karmic delays, because the karmic payout system is about to speed up considerably.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Patton Oswalt, who starred in “The King of Queens” and was the voice of the rat in “Ratatouille,” has been known to rant and prophesy insightfully on his website. Recently, he wrote: “The wheel isn’t spinning any faster or slower, but it is getting noisier.” Oswalt was born under an unconventional Aquarius sun and has three major planets in psychic water signs.
