HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2016: This year you have every chance to manifest a long-term goal. You will notice a tendency of confusion; it likely emanates from you. You are the common denominator. When you feel confused, ask yourself what you are trying to avoid seeing. You easily could sabotage yourself if you are not careful. Foreign interests, education and travel could appear in your life in some form. If you are single, someone quite unique could stroll into your life. The interactions between the two of you will be very exciting. If you are attached, this year will be dynamic for your relationship. Your partner will be more dominant than he or she has been in a while. SCORPIO understand you well.
