Horoscopes for Jan. 28, 2014

By From page B7 | January 27, 2014

As the Aquarian sun pushes into the future filled with ideas and innovations to try, the Capricorn moon reminds us of the traditions and practices that have brought us to this place, many of which will still apply. This moon is also the guardian of respect for elders, authority and for all that was built to bring us to this place.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be asked to contribute to or improve upon a group project. This is dangerous territory politically. Be diplomatic. If you have to change someone’s work, offer praise and positive words to offset the possible slight.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be presenting your work to the world. Avoid trying to turn your friends and family into your fans. Chances are your offerings will be best appreciated by people you don’t yet know.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s good to feel respected, especially by the people whose opinions matter most to you. But if you aren’t getting the signs of respect you deserve, stay the course. Eventually, you’ll get your due.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). While a small part of you wonders what’s next, the better part of you will be enjoying this part of your journey. It’s like you have both feet in the present while one hand reaches into the future.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want to share but may not be sure which part of you is best to share at this time. Keep in mind that all social interaction is risk. You may get it wrong but learning as you go is part of the fun.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). With all the busyness going on in your life now, it will be important to stop and actively show yourself an act or two of unconditional love. Treat yourself like you would your best friend – with thoughtfulness and support.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Here’s a radical idea: Center your schedule on the things that matter most to you. What would happen if you did this? Someone would need to adjust. Likely it is a person who should be taking more responsibility anyway.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your strong sense of responsibility may have you sticking around a situation that is ultimately not healthy for you. Don’t allow yourself to be mistreated. Some people are best loved from afar.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are things in your life that are draining your willpower and making it difficult for you to do the things you need to do to make your life better. Fix the drains and you’ll have more self-control.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The compulsion to document the moment instead of fully experiencing it is a symptom of our current technological time period – and one that you may not be in the mood to currently resist at that.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Be aware of the extra work that needs doing just to make something function correctly, i.e., if you have to extremely season it, it’s probably not delicious, and if you have to explain it, it’s not really a funny joke.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Try to be the leader because if you wait for others, they will likely come at things with a much lower tone than you. Your relationships thrive today because you approach them with such optimism and good cheer.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You have a beautiful environment in mind and are resourceful enough to create an even better one than what you imagine. You will find a way around limitations, especially the ones that have to do with money. Your efforts will connect you with kindred spirits. You’ll be showered in attention in September. Cancer and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 33, 2, 41, 44 and 19.


The Obvious: Libra is a diplomat who can iron out differences between people Libra doesn’t even know. This sign has a lightness of view that inspires others to step out of their fixed opinion and consider a less harsh approach to problems.

The Uncanny: Libra can turn anything into art – food, hardware supplies, garbage . . . finding the most interesting arrangement of raw materials is like a compulsion for this sign.

The Weird: Libras are the visual equivalent to super tasters. Instead of having more taste buds on the tongue, Libra’s ocular receptors gather more information from the colors and shapes of the world. That’s why this sign tends to have an exceptional sense of style. A lot of what style is has to do with understanding the subtle differences between things.

The Extremely Useful: Libra doesn’t easily take offense and can think of argument as a kind of game. It’s what makes Libra so good in a courtroom, boardroom or political scenario.

The Quietly Helpful: There is a gentleness to the sign of the scales that comes from believing at a very deep level that no person is more deserving than any other.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Busy Disney star Calum Worthy has been nominated for multiple acting awards, has won a few and is an Aquarian on the rise. Worthy decided the theatrical life was for him at the age of 4, started training at 5 and was working on screen by 10. His good fortune planet, Jupiter, is in Leo, the sign of entertainment and four of his natal luminaries are in ambitious Capricorn.
