Astrology: Take a look at your daily horoscope
for Sunday, Jan. 13. This year you change your goals and your direction. You feel more in touch with your needs, and are more willing to support yourself in achieving what you desire. Listen to your inner voice while making decisions. If you are single, toward your next birthday, you easily might be charmed by a new person in your life. Get to know this individual better. If you are attached, you sometimes feel conflicted in what you want from your sweetie. Accept your sweetie as he or she is. ARIES understands you well.
Aries (March 20-April 19):
★★★ The more you eye the long term and see what’s going on, the better you understand how lucky you are because of your ability to communicate. Confusion surrounds the day, but you will enjoy yourself if you stay open. Tonight: Someone admires you more than you realize.
Taurus (April 20-May 20):
★★★ Keep your own counsel, even if someone tries to coerce you into giving him or her some information. A loved one reaches out to you. The conversation you share could be quite intimate. You might adjust your patterns as you gain more understanding. Tonight: Keep your plans hush-hush.
Gemini (May 21-June 20):
★★★ You can make headway and have a significant conversation with a key person in your life. You might not be as secure as you’d like to be. A friend might become controlling at some point. Recognize how inse- cure you feel. No one can change that feeling but you. Tonight: Out with friends.
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
★★★ You might want to change gears and proceed in a new way with a key project, where you’ll be more visible. A conversation could be more serious than you had anticipated -- at least, that’s how the other party is taking it. Tonight: Stay light and easy, especially in public places.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22):
★★★ Be willing to stretch your mind and understand a different culture. Though you might not feel comfortable, know that you are learning to be more effective and understanding. Let your creativity emerge. Tonight: Eliminate confusion by clarifying what someone else is saying.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
★★★ One-on-one relating seems to be the best mode to relax and share some time with a loved one. You’ve pushed hard to achieve a certain goal; don’t lose ground by not understanding what a key person shares with you. Walk away from a power play. Tonight: Reach out to a loved one.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
★★★ Reach out to a loved one or an important friend. This person often delights in what goes on around you. You might experience more than just a friendship with this person. Be open to communicating your thoughts. Touch base with a sibling or a dear friend. Tonight: Hang out.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
★★★ You don’t need to do much other than relax and catch up on sleep. A friend who is very serious might want to get you into playing a card game with him or her. You will need to learn some ground rules, but once you do, you’ll be difficult to beat. Tonight: Know when to call it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
★★★ Your affectionate side emerges. You might find it hard to say ‘’no’’ to a loved one. A serious conversation might go along with this period of getting to know each other better. Avoid making any commitments, if you can. You might not be ready. Tonight: Act like a teenager again.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
★★★ Stay centered, and know what is possible for you to commit to. You could be happiest at home, not pushing too hard. Invite a friend over for an early dinner and some fun conversation. Confusion could surround your plans. Tonight: Do not push someone; just listen to him or her.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
★★★ You might be trying to find out how someone really feels about you. Know that you cannot change this person. Just give him or her space, and he or she is likely to pull in more closely as a result. You communicate well together, but don’t push the timing. Tonight: Respond to a request.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20):
★★★ Be aware of the cost of continuing to enjoy a certain set of friends. You might not understand what’s going on between you and another person, and it seems easier to hang out with your mutual friends. Tonight: Listen to a favorite musician or go off to the movies.
