Aries (March 21-April 19): Hard work is a virtue. But what if you are only working hard because you can’t figure out how to work smart? Ask that lazy, brilliant person you know.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): The thing that makes something beautiful is the same thing that makes it imperfect. You’ll teach those younger than you with your all-embracing attitude.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): Are you starting to realize that the way you’ve been telling your story doesn’t really paint it in the most accurate or flattering way? Do a rewrite on your history.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Likely, you’re figuring out that you don’t exercise your liberties nearly enough. Take a risk. Turn heads; raise twice as many eyebrows.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): There are people who make you feel older than you are. Steer clear of the ones who complain too much about the “new” way things work these days.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll probably have to put something out of your mind to stay on task. Your ability to compartmentalize will be your biggest key to success.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You get through some things by facing them head-on and you get through other things by ignoring them soundly. You’ve an excellent instinct about which way to go today.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Affirm that you’re fine with the ebb and flow of relationships and everything gets easier.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Rub elbows with the one who makes you happy. This will help you maintain a healthy perspective.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Like all goats, you claim what’s yours. You don’t like to be knocked off your rock, and today you’ll dig in to make sure that it doesn’t happen.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The urge to annoy others is stronger than you care to admit. This is not your fault. It may, in fact, be your calling at the moment.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): There will be mischief and madness thrown into your mix. Eventually, the only thing left to do will be to laugh.
Today’s birthday (Jan. 24): Entrepreneurs talk about “building a better mousetrap,” and you’ll actually live this metaphor with your inventive take on everyday life. February brings more money to dedicate to your project. In June, an open door will lead to a surprising place. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 23, 10, 2 and 16.
