HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Jan. 14, 2019:

This year could be memorable in many ways. Much that will happen is tied to the fact you will begin a new luck cycle in late December 2019 and early January 2020. The first year is often considered the best. If you are single, a person you are drawn to could be emotionally unavailable. If you are attached, your relationship with your partner will benefit from plenty of time together. You will share more and become more closely bonded. TAURUS always presents a different perspective to you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Use the morning to the max, when others are more receptive. By the afternoon, your concerns change. A financial matter comes up for discussion, and you could have multiple thoughts regarding the issue. Choose to share what you feel is relevant. Tonight: Treat yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

If you greet this Monday feeling sluggish, do not be surprised. Know that this, too, shall pass. You have seen a situation from a different point of view, and might need to proceed in a different manner. You see the possibilities; those around you do not. Tonight: Remain open.

A meeting or conversation in the morning could color your plans in the afternoon. You will deal with what occurs as a result of this adjustment. You have reason to smile and be more upbeat than you have been in a while. Maintain your sense of humor. Tonight: Keep it private.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Remain sensitive to your options. You do not always get along with a higher-up or elder. The way that you have your discussion could affect the outcome. Even when you disagree with this person, maintain respect; if you do, your relationship will get better. Tonight: As you like it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be willing to take a stand. A close associate helps inspire you to take the lead with a major project. With all the excitement and feedback around you, staying anchored could be difficult. A higher-up seems off-kilter. Better to say nothing and just smile. Tonight: A must appearance.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Listen to news with openness, but don’t commit to anything just yet. You could be surprised by an unexpected development that heads your way. Right now, you can’t count on anyone else to come through for you. Others are too much in their heads. Tonight: Say “yes.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

One-on-one relating can be rewarding. However, you need to be ready for the other party to manifest what might seem like odd facets of his or her personality. Instead of criticizing or being put off, enjoy this person’s differences. The unexpected occurs. Tonight: Opt for togetherness.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Defer to a loved one who has the right idea. Even when others have the best intentions, you can’t always count on them to come through for you. They could run into unexpected and unanticipated developments. Despite obstacles, remain centered. Tonight: Accept an invitation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Pace yourself in order to get through as much as possible. Despite the fact that it’s only Monday, you could be overloaded. Confusion surrounds a domestic or real estate issue. Try to avoid a confrontation at all costs. Time might help. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You could be overly serious and raining on a close associate’s parade. Try to be more sensitive. Verbalize what you’re feeling; you might be delighted by what you hear. As a result, a new beginning becomes possible. Expect the unexpected. Tonight: Head home.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

When you’re dealing with a roommate or family member, your more playful side emerges. You are quickly learning that matters pertaining to your domestic life or any real estate property you own could sprial out of control. Be prepared for anything. Tonight: Happiest at home.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You have the right words and the correct instincts to pull off a long-term desire. You could be surprised by what is occurring, which is triggering some odd behaviors or reactions. Maintain your sense of humor. Tonight: Adjust to the unexpected; you cannot change it.
