Today’s birthday (Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016) This year you open up to new opportunities created by a better sense of self and greater confidence. You will notice the power of your thoughts in accomplishing more of what you want. You could gain financially, if you don’t take too many wild risks. Tame a love of gambling. If single, you will attract someone who can appreciate your offbeat style. You will learn to be more accepting as a result of knowing this person. If you are attached, plan a trip with your sweetie that will take you to a special place you both have wanted to visit. Aquarius might not be materialistic, but somehow he or she ends up costing you a lot!
Aries (March 21-April 19) 6666 Be with friends, and you will feel as if you can do no wrong. Many benefits are likely to emerge as a result, though you might need and/or want some downtime without anyone around you. Make sure you get what you need. Tonight: Where your friends are.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) 66666 You might want to take another look at a potential trip. An invitation heads your way that could take you out of town. Your creativity soars, though you might decide to hold back some. You will see the results of not being open with a friend. Tonight: A must show.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) 66666 Keep reaching out to someone at a distance who has been MIA. You could take this person’s behavior personally, but it won’t help you find out what is going on. Try to be as clear as possible and nonjudgmental when you finally reach this person. Tonight: Movie night.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) 6666 Allow a loved one to make the plans and be more in charge of day-to-day events. It might be hard to give up control, but don’t worry; this situation is not long-term. Understand that this person could be bored with this role once you allow him or her to fill in. Tonight: Make it cozy.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) 66666 You might be the one to whom most people defer. Today, you have an opportunity to step up to the plate, but you will allow someone else the privilege of following through. This person has wanted to be the center of plans for some time. Tonight: Enjoy what goes on.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) 666 You might want to socialize in the morning. By the afternoon, you could have your mind on another matter. Take a nap after you read the paper or watch a movie. You’re likely to discover that you would like to simplify plans. Tonight: Hang in there, and see what happens.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) 66666 You have been very serious when handling personal and business matters as of late. Suddenly, you might feel like a child again and frolic out the door. A conversation feels overwhelming, as the topic seems to be overly discussed. Tonight: Add some mischief.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) 666 Stay close to home, or visit with a family member. Conversations could be animated. You will be more serious than you need to be with a sibling or neighbor. Get off your pedestal and treat this person as you would treat a friend full of many ideas. Tonight: At home.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) 666 Handle a personal matter early on. You will be able to relax more if you do. In the afternoon, you can’t seem to get away from an animated conversation, nor do you really want to. Laughter and insight merge together. Tonight: At a favorite spot with favorite people.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) 6666 Seek out answers in the morning. Call a friend and explore potential options. You could change your plans several times during the day. Keep an eye on your spending or on any other areas where you tend to overindulge, as that could be a theme today. Tonight: Do what you want.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) 66666 You beam in what you want, but a partner could be uncomfortable with your good luck. A loved one can’t say “thank you” enough for your efforts. Let this person show his or her appreciation, as you’ll enjoy the way he or she chooses to express it. Tonight: All smiles.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) 666 Use the period up to mid-afternoon to socialize and get together with friends. Maximize your influence. A loved one or dear friend is far more likely to be open, and will want to share more of his or her feelings with you. Respond in kind. Tonight: How about a nap first?
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.
