Horoscopes for Jan. 30, 2014

By
From page A9 | January 30, 2014 |

The term “Blue Moon” has recently been widely accepted to describe the second full moon in a month, but what is the name of the second new moon of the year? Some call it the “Black Moon” and consider it a particularly auspicious time for postulating a new way of being in the months to come. Habits can be overhauled for the better.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a fine line between expressing your own individuality and rejecting the group culture of those around you. Put the group culture first and you’ll have no trouble finding windows of opportunity to be unique.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You like to concentrate on what needs to be done and can’t see the point of dwelling on what you’ve already accomplished. It’s necessary to compartmentalize the past, but don’t forget it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s only natural to leave the door of your heart open around loved ones. Being so emotionally vulnerable is not always best for your relationships. To protect your heart’s treasures, you must sometimes lock them up.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your neighborhood is really only as good as your neighbors. Taking care of those who live around you will be part of today’s work and in doing this, you’ll be improving the domestic life of many.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Misinformation will provide a test of your inner guidance system. You are not likely to believe something just because it’s what you’re asked to believe. You have to feel the truth of things at a bone level.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Today, you will have to bend to avoid breaking. Flexibility is not one of your main strengths and yet, you will be willing to do whatever it takes to help your plans bear fruit.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have one style of doing things, and someone close to you has a completely different approach. The two styles may clash, and someone will have to back down. If this person is you, you won’t be sorry.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your love takes work now, and your work takes love. It feels so worthwhile though as today’s project will provide you with excitement on par with romantic rapture.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You strive to be self-sufficient emotionally, financially and physically. For you, being sure of this is your freedom. It allows you to say “no” and “yes” to whomever you want.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are now doing the work that once seemed so beyond your capabilities. Backing out was never an option for you, and now you and your crew will benefit from your perseverance.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll enjoy the challenge of being a stranger in a new land for a few hours today, and this experience will teach you something about your confidence, defense mechanisms and social strengths.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Thinking ahead is your talent now. You’ve witnessed the kinds of difficulties and delays that are caused by a lack of preparation, and you’re determined to do everything you can to get ready for what’s to come.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll deliberately put yourself in opportune situations, and the busyness of the next four months will have the feeling of catching your life on the fly. Snap pictures often or you’ll forget what this blur was all about. June brings a calm stretch of self-reflection, though you may have to travel for it. Libra and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 47, 6, 44, 39 and 20.

SAGITTARIUS SECRET SUPER POWER BREAKDOWN:

The Obvious: As the sign of exploration and expansion, Sagittarius glides between states of mind and states of countries with equal ease and finds a way to feel perfectly at home just about anywhere Sagittarius happens to land.

The Uncanny: The Sagittarian ability to withstand bugs, critters, oppressive weather and other inconveniences of adventuring is truly remarkable.

The Weird: Sagittarius collects oddball rituals and strange tips, and will often use them to effectively solve the problem at hand. So if you see a Sagittarius smelling a green apple to avoid claustrophobic feelings or rubbing the bridge of the nose to cure insomnia, it’s all part of the Sagittarian collection.

The Extremely Useful: Sagittarius has an ear for language and can pick up a foreign tongue in a fraction of the amount of time it takes others to do this.

The Quietly Helpful: Sagittarius quickly learns that each person comes with a unique set of operating instructions and does not expect that anyone else will automatically understand, adopt or serve the Sagittarian agenda. This view makes it a lot easier to get along in the world.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Christian Bale has proven that he’ll go to extremes for the parts he plays – gaining and losing weight, perfecting accents, performing stunts and growing the long-flowing beard of Moses. Sun, Mercury and Aquarius suggest that for Bale, acting is about more than entertaining the masses. These planets indicate a sincere desire to elevate humanity through the journey of storytelling.
