Horoscopes for Jan. 9, 2014

By
From page A9 | January 09, 2014 |

You’re the only one who can make today’s judgment call. Be honest with yourself: Are you afraid to negotiate with the established order, or are you intuitively sensing that this is a bad time? If you’re merely afraid, push yourself while Mercury is still in power-talking Capricorn. But if your intuition is setting off an alarm, obey it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Good fortune will depend on how people react to your deeds. Ponder the best approach. If you’re bold, you’ll earn the public’s support. If you’re meek, you’ll earn their adoration and love.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Even those who don’t appear to hear the call of the wild will heed it. They may deny their animal nature, but that won’t make it go away. You will embrace your animal nature, hear the call and heed it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someone you’re trying to help is being difficult – a sign that he or she does not in fact need the help so desperately. The old saying goes that a drowning man isn’t picky about who throws him a rope.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re not feeling completely enamored with a partnership, but it could still work out brilliantly, as many “marriages of convenience” do. This likely has to do with something other than a romantic relationship.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In regard to sand castles and domino mazes, futility is the whole point. Some games are made for destruction, and you have a more satisfying experience with them when you keep this in mind.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can fake applause more easily than you can fake laughter, and you may have to do both to get through today’s little show. But the good news is, when you come home, it’s genuine joy all around!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The person who is being greedy is really afraid that people won’t think enough of him or her to provide for deep-seated needs. Allay this person’s fear, and the greed will go away, too.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll have fun doing away with the formalities. Start a conversation in the middle or, even better, about three-quarters of the way through. Make a positive presumption and go from there.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your intention changes an interaction. Instead of being concerned with what you can get out of a relationship, you’ll think only about enjoying the other person, who in turn will become most enjoyable.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll receive psychic information and know what a person is feeling or, more likely, hiding. This doesn’t mean you have to call the person out. The kind thing would be to quietly make note and keep it to yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re happy to help loved ones, but not when you’re doing about 20 other things at the same time. Maybe you need more help than the people who are asking for it!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Persevere. You don’t have to change a thing about what you’re doing; you just have to do it for a longer period of time. The resistance you are encountering eventually will wear down.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You will put your energy out into the world, and new friends will respond to you directly through the magic of social media. April highlights shrewd action – cut through the superfluous, and get what you need. By May you’ll determine that you’ve leaned all you can in a classroom. Grab your diploma and go! Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 22, 49, 28 and 16.

NEW YEAR, NEW SAGITTARIUS: In 2014, those who want to make big changes will be cosmically empowered to do so. For Sagittarius, this makeover energy settles into the area of romance. This sign has a reputation for being in love with the chase, and this year Sagittarius will prove that there are many ways to keep the chase alive even in relationships where the initial “catch” happened long ago. Sagittarius is learning that no one ever can be completely known by another person, so the quest for ever more intimate knowledge can go on for a lifetime.

Sagittarius singles will warm up to the idea of choosing one person to focus on and making that person as happy as can be. It should be noted, however, that this often will not unfold in the cliched “flowers, gifts and chocolate” kind of way. Making a person happy has more to do with relating playfully to them than it does with following tired traditional models perpetuated by advertisers. Sagittarians who are part of a couple will devote themselves to keeping the relationship spicy hot because that’s the way the last fire sign of the zodiac likes it!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy birthday to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, (a.k.a. Kate Middleton). Middleton is a Capricorn whose star is burning so bright that the entire world seems to be watching her every move. With Mercury and Venus in philanthropic Aquarius, Middleton will use her royal fame for the good of humanity, while Mars, Saturn and Pluto in Libra promise that diplomacy and tact will stand her eternally in good stead.
