The Denver Post - - LIFE & CULTURE - by Jacqueline Bi­gar

To­day’s birth­day ( Fri­day, Jan. 1, 2016) This year, you of­ten feel pres­sured by con­flict­ing de­sires. On one hand, you want to be slightly more gra­cious and easy­go­ing; on the other hand, you want to be more busi­nesslike and ef­fi­cient. Which voice you choose will de­pend on var­i­ous sit­u­a­tions in your life. If you are sin­gle, you of­ten at­tract the at­ten­tion of peo­ple who might not be the peo­ple they project them­selves to be. Take your time get­ting to know some­one well be­fore com­mit­ting. If you are at­tached, the two of you need a lot of down­time to­gether to keep your bond strong. Make a point of es­tab­lish­ing th­ese spe­cial times to­gether. Li­bra is al­ways gra­cious.

Aries ( March 21- April 19) You have gone out of your way to help oth­ers enjoy New Year’s Eve, and fi­nally your time to re­lax has come. You will hear from a lot of friends, but be­ing with a loved one is all you really seem to want. Share your res­o­lu­tions! Tonight: Say “yes” to an in­vi­ta­tion.

Tau­rus ( April 20- May 20) Your lack of en­ergy could de­fine the day. You have put so much ef­fort into ev­ery­thing you have done, in­clud­ing be­ing there for sev­eral spe­cial peo­ple in your life. You might just want to be one with your arm­chair to­day and not leave your house. Tonight: Re­turn a call you missed.

Gem­ini ( May 21- June 20) You might be more in­ter­ested in what is hap­pen­ing with a loved one than you re­al­ize. Shift your fo­cus away from this per­son for now. You might hear a com­ment or two later, but do you really care? Pres­sure builds to do what a friend wants you to do. Tonight: Let down your hair.

Can­cer ( June 21- July 22) You could be in a po­si­tion where you need to stay home be­cause of a com­mit­ment or an obli­ga­tion. Make it your plea­sure to get it done. Get into the mo­ment with your pet or enjoy a room­mate or vis­i­tor as you rarely would. Tonight: Stay close to home if you can.

Leo ( July 23- Aug. 22) You al­ways have a smile and a nice word for oth­ers, and to­day is no ex­cep­tion. Some­one might not have your same style, but will do his or her best to let you know how wel­comed you are. This per­son is al­ways a lit­tle cool or dis­tant. Tonight: Say “yes” to a new pos­si­bil­ity.

Virgo ( Aug. 23- Sept. 22) Be aware of a ten­dency to be pos­ses­sive. This trait could emerge to­day, mainly be­cause you are so tired and worn out from re­cent events. A loved one makes a point of vis­it­ing or call­ing. Get a head start on or­ga­niz­ing a cleanup project for tomorrow. Tonight: Avoid com­pli­ca­tions.

Li­bra ( Sept. 23- Oct. 22) Reach out to a friend or loved one. You have a very flir­ta­tious style that of­ten could be mis­read as mean­ing more. Some­times this be­hav­ior is the source of con­fu­sion. Be more sen­si­tive to oth­ers and to how they take your ges­tures and words. Tonight: Mo­sey on home.

Scor­pio ( Oct. 23- Nov. 21) Know when to pull back. You have gone along with all the sea­sonal tra­di­tions, but you are not tra­di­tional. You might need to honor who you are in some way. A con­ver­sa­tion with a younger per­son could prove to be in­sight­ful. Tonight: Be­hind the scenes.

Sagit­tar­ius ( Nov. 22- Dec. 21) 6666 Re­lax and get into the mo­ment. Wher­ever you are, make sure you are sur­rounded by friends who care about you, and vice versa. You have a new­found warmth that draws oth­ers to­ward you. Tonight: A con­ver­sa­tion might be mean­ing­ful, but it also could be gib­ber­ish.

Capri­corn ( Dec. 22- Jan. 19) You have cre­ated stronger foun­da­tions than you orig­i­nally thought pos­si­ble. You have a ten­dency to hold in your feel­ings, per­haps too much for your own good. Why not open up a lit­tle more, es­pe­cially with a re­spected friend? Tonight: Re­think how you han­dle your funds.

Aquar­ius ( Jan. 20- Feb. 18) You will want to take off most of the day. Where you de­cide to go could be un­usual, but suit­able. A dear friend might de­cide to join you in this ad­ven­ture. How you view this sit­u­a­tion might be quite dif­fer­ent from how he or she views it. Tonight: Put on some great mu­sic.

Pisces ( Feb. 19- March 20) Your sense of di­rec­tion of­ten proves to be some­what lim­it­ing. You tend to fall into pat­terns, as do the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple. How you han­dle a touchy mat­ter will re­flect your will­ing­ness to iden­tify with oth­ers. Tonight: Spend more time with your sweetie.

The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5- Dy­namic; 4- Pos­i­tive; 3- Av­er­age; 2- So- so; 1- Dif­fi­cult. Read­ers can write Jacqueline Bi­gar at jacque­linebi­gar. com.
