Thursday, January 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can be angry with someone and love that person at the same time. You can be disappointed in an action and still stand behind the general plan. Complexities will come into play, and you’ll manage them beautifully.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Get centered and do your best without looking around to see how anyone else is doing. The only thing you should be comparing yourself with is your own past performance, and even that might be a bad idea.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s easy to get excited about your own idea, but when someone else’s idea has you excited and willing to work, you know it must be a good one. Be generous, but also clear about the arrangement going forward.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Experience always grows you. So when the choice is between what you know and what you don’t know, you’ll choose what you don’t know... as long as it’s not terribly inconvenient or expensive.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Relationships improve because you put thought into resolving your issues with another person. And the other person doesn’t even have to know about it! Your change is enough to change the whole dynamic.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The basics of good communication aren’t universally distributed at birth. Eye contact, listening, affirming through verbal or nonverbal cues... this must be learned. And not everyone you’ll deal with today has learned it yet.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Oscar Wilde summed up today’s predicament very well when he said, “Anybody can sympathise with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathise with a friend’s successes.”
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As an intuitive person, you know that inner guidance can be illogical and sometimes doesn’t quite culminate into something you can make sense of. But it does often enough, which is why you’ll keep paying attention.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you really comb back over what you’ve been taught, you’ll find that you disagree with more of it than you care to bring up over the dinner table. Some battles are best shrugged off. Vive la difference.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll take notice of who you are around different people — what each brings out in you — so you can surround yourself with people who bring out your best and brightest, and/or a lighthearted, surprising side of you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Oddly enough, your work will be best noticed when you do not do it. So, pull back on the efforts. Let them feel the void. And then pull back a little more so they can understand the exact nature of your typical contributions.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Basic niceties are well within normal expectations, but the problem is that not everyone was brought up with the same manners and customs. You may have to gently educate others about what you need.
