The Denver Post - - FEATURES - by Jac­que­line Bigar

To­day’s birth­day (Mon­day, Jan. 18, 2016) This year you will ac­com­plish a lot by let­ting go of a need to be so struc­tured all the time. If you hang loose, your cre­ativ­ity might help you come up with an un­usu­ally dy­namic idea or pro­ject. Be open to new styles and dif­fer­ent out­looks. If you are sin­gle, this new you at­tracts many suit­ors. Your love life will ex­pe­ri­ence quite a jolt. If you are at­tached, the two of you will ven­ture into new turf, where you will be­come more present. A trip could play a sig­nif­i­cant role in your year, even if you opt to be arm­chair trav­el­ers to­gether. Taurus can be more stub­born than you are.

Aries (March 21-April 19) Curb a ten­dency to take a dra­matic stance on a money mat­ter. You have a lot of en­ergy fo­cused on iron­ing out a prob­lem in your daily life. You’ll find the per­fect so­lu­tion, and quickly at that. Your in­tu­ition en­cour­ages you to fol­low a cer­tain path. Tonight: Re­vise your bud­get.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Your smile draws many peo­ple to­ward you. You of­ten come off as be­ing much gen­tler and more flex­i­ble than you re­ally are. You have the abil­ity to make up your mind about an is­sue rather quickly. Pace your­self when deal­ing with a cre­ative pro­ject. Tonight: Make it your treat.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) You might be feel­ing as if some­thing is off or as if some­one is head­ing your way. Make sure that the dif­fer­ent aspects of a key mat­ter are sorted out, and that you are up­dated about the de­tails of this sit­u­a­tion. Then re­lax and see what comes down the pike. Tonight: Get some sleep.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22) You might feel as if you can achieve what­ever you de­sire most. Use this mo­ment well, and don’t let your­self get dis­tracted. Later in the week, you won’t feel as pos­i­tive or as as­sertive as you do now. Know what you ex­pect from a con­ver­sa­tion. Tonight: Catch up on a pal’s news.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) You are on top of your game. Are you will­ing to as­sume re­spon­si­bil­ity and help oth­ers achieve this same feel­ing of con­fi­dence? Your lead­er­ship could make or break a sit­u­a­tion. Weigh the pros and cons care­fully be­fore mak­ing any de­ci­sions. Tonight: Out till the wee hours.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) 66666 Be will­ing to reach out to some­one who doesn’t of­ten ex­press his or her car­ing, but is break­ing that pat­tern now. You could feel un­com­fort­able yet de­lighted with this change. Your imag­i­na­tion goes to a new level when brain­storm­ing. Tonight: Make an im­por­tant call.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) 6666 Oneon-one re­lat­ing takes on a whole new di­men­sion with a new set of pos­si­bil­i­ties. You might de­cide that this type of re­lat­ing is the only one that works with oth­ers. Con­fu­sion sur­rounds a daily rou­tine. Try to clar­ify by ask­ing key ques­tions. Tonight: Say “yes” to an of­fer.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might be more fiery and de­ter­mined than you have been in a while. How you han­dle a per­sonal mat­ter could be dif­fer­ent from how you ini­tially had in­tended be­cause of some sup­pressed anger. Avoid lash­ing out at some­one you care about. Tonight: Go with the flow.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) 6666 You need to pace your­self. A slow but steady pace works well. A con­trol­ling per­son could af­fect your plans. You can ig­nore this per­son’s ac­tions and just con­tinue as if you had never had an in­ter­ac­tion; just be aware of the ram­i­fi­ca­tions of your ac­tions. Tonight: Off to the gym.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You will be very di­rect, and it will be re­flected in your ac­tions. Some peo­ple might back away be­cause of your con­trol­ling na­ture. Your imag­i­na­tion, when shared, tends to help oth­ers re­lax and open up. Use your charm well. Tonight: Soften up a lit­tle for bet­ter re­sults.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You could be much more an­chored than you re­al­ize. No­tice what is hap­pen­ing with a fam­ily mem­ber. You might want to be more sup­port­ive, even if you can’t iden­tify with this per­son. Try to re­late to his or her predica­ment, and don’t make judg­ments. Tonight: Out late.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Com­mu­ni­ca­tion takes a weird turn. You could feel as if you have pushed too hard, per­haps with­out re­al­iz­ing it. You most likely were re­act­ing to a con­trol­ling or strong-willed per­son in your life. Step back, and ev­ery­thing will work out. Tonight: Catch up on oth­ers’ news.

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.
