Horoscopes for Jan. 4, 2014

The Pisces moon suggests taking mental excursions before you embark on physical ones. You don’t want to waste your time and energy pursuing a dream that isn’t a good fit, so try on different daydreams for size. Try to really see your life as it might be if you were to take a certain path. What new challenges might spring from that position?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). An old song suggests that there’s no business like show business, and in a strange way, you’ll feel like that’s exactly the business you’re in. You’ll dazzle your audience, distracting them from behind-the-scenes mechanics.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Recently, boredom has led to overeating. Now the opposite will happen. You’ll concentrate on the efforts that nourish your soul and find that you’re not hungry enough to remember to eat.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can’t bear to see anyone suffer, and you’ll go to great lengths to avoid suffering altogether – except in media. There’s something addictive about seeing the fictional characters you love move in and out of peril.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sometimes the very worst vantage point for predicting where a creature will go next is the view from inside the creature. You may think you know yourself, but you are too close to the subject to detect larger patterns.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Can you really do a job well if part of your mind is occupied with trying to come up with an exit strategy? You’ll be successful when you commit fully and completely, if only for a few hours at a time.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are gentle with the very young and the very old, and you don’t stop there. Mostly people are more fragile than they seem, and unguarded words are as dangerous as knives unsheathed.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have friends who don’t listen well. Try to appreciate these folks for their other talents and strengths. They can complement your life in interesting ways when you stop expecting them to hear you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Have you ever answered every question on an Internet quiz only to get an “internal server error” as an end result? Outdated systems will deny you your due. Stick to what’s known and proven.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Helping someone you love day in and day out may look to others like extreme self-sacrifice. But you truly get something from the experience. You learn and become a stronger person.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may have to share the credit for a success that is yours, all yours. By greasing the wheels, you show good will and make it more likely that others will help you in the future.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll do more than you’re paid to do, more than is expected of you and probably more than you want to do. Once you get in a cycle of giving, it’s hard for you to stop.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be drawn to unpredictable people, and you’ll enjoy guessing what they’ll do next, only to get it wrong. As long as everyone is having fun, inconsistencies are exciting.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Love feels destined, and seemingly accidental happenings shimmer with a glittery dusting of fantastic luck. This month brings romantic proclamations. February advances a study, and some will be accepted into specialized training programs. A financial makeover in May helps you afford an excellent vacation. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 38, 1, 27, 13 and 19.

NEW YEAR, NEW LEO: In 2014, those who want to make big changes will be cosmically empowered to do so. Leo is inclined to apply the makeover energy to the realm of interpersonal dynamics. Lately Leo has felt that the old methods of dealing with people are not producing the desired results. New standards will be set over the course of the next seven weeks.

If you’re a Leo in need of some social guidelines that can be applied to simplify your relationships, this rule will serve you well and save you time, energy and frustration: Don’t offer unsolicited advice. You’re a generous soul, and you truly want to help people. But most people don’t listen to advice that is solicited. Unsolicited advice usually only annoys people. They wonder why you think you know what’s best for them. Sure, you probably really do know what’s best, but that’s beside the point. It may seem radical, but for now, try not intending to help people for a change. Just listening to them and being the strong energetic presence that you are will help more than you realize.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Rising Disney star Coco Jones learned how to impress a large audience early in life when she performed the national anthem at NFL football games and made her NFL footballer dad proud. Jones is a Capricorn, but Aquarius is another dominant force in her natal chart, with Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus all in that station of charity, philanthropy and giving back.
