Horoscopes for Jan. 8, 2014

By
From page B6 | January 08, 2014 |

Do you believe your life would change for the better if you could have a sit-down with a certain authority figure or VIP? You suddenly may feel emboldened to make this meeting happen. Pick up the phone and speak your mind during these final few days of the current Mercury cycle through power-talking Capricorn.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Rest assured, you don’t have to go to the expense of traveling far and wide to find more excitement. New people bring even more adventures than do new places.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your heart is so big that you love people who haven’t even been born yet. Metaphorically, you’ll be planting trees that never will be big enough to shade you in your lifetime, but generations to come will benefit.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your tendency to overestimate the talents of those you admire goes hand in hand with the bad habit of underestimating your own talent. Stop analyzing, put your head down and work.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Love isn’t an idea; it’s a feeling that produces ideas. If it were an idea, you could think it and fall in love with anyone. But you can’t force yourself to love someone any more than you can force someone to love you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s not that you’re so limited in what you can and can’t do today, but your preferences narrow down your choices quite a bit. This is a good thing. It’s what gives you your style.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). “Perfection paralysis” won’t immobilize you willy-nilly. It only freezes you out of doing certain tasks: the ones you think you’re supposed to do perfectly because you believe it matters big-time. It doesn’t. Be free.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re in a private mood, and you don’t want people to know what time you woke up, who your favorite friends are and what you did last Friday night. But they’ll ask anyway unless you lead the conversation.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll influence the feelings of others by refusing to tell them how to feel. You respect every person’s right to his or her own reaction, and you look forward to being surprised at what that reaction might be.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Fighting ideas is like fighting clouds. You can punch and kick, but what difference will it make? The way to impact the world today is by tackling the tangible items.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are part of a large and diverse group, but you also are uniquely yourself. You may spend the better part of the day acting toward the purposes of the collective. First, take the time to address your individual needs.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You actually may try to be boring on purpose to throw someone off the trail of who you really are. You just don’t want the attention now, and that’s healthy. No one should need all of the attention all of the time.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be trying to get something important done, and this involves others. Too bad. It would be easier and faster if it didn’t, or if you could control the others. Alas, communication is your only hope.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your efforts are nearly saintly, though you don’t want any attention for them. You would rather show your brilliance by hiding it in plain view for the masses to use and appreciate. You will be promoted in June because you consistently turn in work that is a cut above the bunch. July features a touch of the exotic. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 11, 48 and 37.

NEW YEAR, NEW SCORPIO: In 2014, those who want to make big changes will be cosmically empowered to do so. For Scorpio, this makeover energy settles into the area of nutrition, and Scorpio will be inspired to make healthy and adventurous changes in this regard. Why wait until you feel bad to make good choices? Scorpio will proactively move toward an image of ideal health and work daily to develop that vision and keep the quest alive.

The specifics of diet are a highly individualized choice; however, the main cosmic perk that Scorpio feels this year is a willingness to try new things, if only for a short time. There is no perfect answer to dietary needs, because the needs of Scorpio’s body change seasonally just like the availability of certain foods. Committing to only a day at a time is an excellent strategy for Scorpio; this sign tends to feel overwhelmed by sweeping changes and caged in by too many commitments and goals. Anyone can be a vegetarian for a day or eat Paleo for three meals. In the classic Scorpio style, this sign will assess and recommit to the styles that feel right.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The king of rock ‘n’ roll was born on this day in 1935, and nearly 80 years later, fans around the world will celebrate the birthday of the legendary Elvis Presley. Presley was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were all in Capricorn, a sign noted for hard work and ambition. These powerful placements were contrasted by a sensitive, empathetic Pisces moon and lucky Jupiter in sensual, shocking Scorpio.
