Today’s Horoscope: Wednesday, January 21, 2009
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Willie Aames is finally ready to set the world straight on why he allowed his life to spiral out of control and why he attempted suicide when his wife of 22 years left him. Self-discipline and persevering though this period while you work through troubled times are themes for today. You have the ability and the stamina to begin again. Yes, it may be hard, but the alternative isn’t an option. Try: purchasing only fair trade products.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
The usually private Mary-Kate Olsen showed off her artist-boyfriend Nate Lowman in a rare public outing for the duo. You learned a lot last year. With your new insight into your goals, you can begin to build on last year’s achievements. Today, money will come to you. There could be a surprise bonus from an unexpected source. Light and pleasant interaction characterize this time period. Try: cleaning your ears with good old-fashioned soap and water.
Aries March 21 – April 19
Chris Evans opens up to the Advocate about his brother being gay and how he doesn’t mind … although he himself would never attend a gay party. You, on the other hand, wouldn’t have a problem attending a gay event, even if you’re not gay. You would attend mainly because you enjoy going to new places and trying out new things. Opportunities invite you to be more open to those around you. You may even find yourself in a comprising position in which you have to explain your sexuality. Don’t be embarrassed; just go with the flow and do what you feel. Try: organizing a party.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
The new trend among parents is to take your kid to a pox party. Weird but understandable. Imagine finding out that the way you’ve always done things (getting a chicken pox vaccination) might have a bearing on your future (having it cause autism). Then imagine, if you will, that there were a way around the old way, and all you had to do was to expose your children to the virus and the shot would no longer be necessary. This a great time to eliminate the unnecessary from your life. Try: a new recipe.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
This month marks Motown’s 50th anniversary. Turn your attention to your own life; you may want to sort out and put into place those things that require your full attention. Now would be a good time to get on with that venture that has been percolating on the back burner. You will have to attend to the details in order to see your plan through to completion. Your thoughts may turn to love today. This is a favorable time to bring out any concerns that you have in your relationship. Try: knitting.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid may just be one of the best fiction books to read in 2009. It is meant to be a funny take on human frailties; the kid is manipulative, lazy and lost in his own world. He finds numerous ways to sidestep his life instead of facing it head-on. Sound familiar? Your life would be so much easier if you were able to understand that living means more than just breathing. Living includes leaving that safe cocoon that you call home and venturing outside your shell. Try: visiting a nursing home.
Leo July 23 – August 22
Fergie and Josh Duhamel married in a small, private ceremony last week, which brings up an interesting point. You live in the moment and love the act of being in love. Romance is in the air. When things feel right, it is because you feel good. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that your emotions can control the outcome of your day. Invite your friends out and place yourself front and center, where you belong. You will love the attention. Try: dancing in the streets.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
When the paparazzi cross the line, what should you do? Fight back like Renee W. or leap tall building like Gossip Girl – or just accept that nothing is private? Today, you will find yourself being a stickler for details. This is a time of considerable frustration. It appears that everyone is looking over your shoulder. You may have to speak your mind even if it unnerves the person. So be it. Try: lifting weights.
Libra September 23 – October 22
The acai berry and colon-cleanse diet may be dreams come true, but honestly the best diet is where you learn to rethink your eating habits and incorporate them into your lifestyle. Health will be the main focus of your day. It is time for you to stop procrastinating and get back into the swing of exercising and eating right. Try to eat a balanced diet today and in the future. Everything you do will help you become powerful. Try: reading a classic.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Kanye West made three resolutions this year: Pose naked, have fewer fans and make popular music. Resolutions are great, provided you keep them. Your private life and work life are merging. Being satisfied with neither life, you are ready for a change. The only problem is you aren’t certain where the change will take place. Focus on the fine print instead of on the big picture. Getting what you want may require you to eliminate something from your life. Try: learning three foreign sentences.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Ryan O’Neal pleaded guilty to drug charges rather than using his celebrity status to garner sympathy from a jury pool. This is an excellent time to begin a new venture. Your feelings for friends and family – and emotional responses to life in general – are deeper and more intense. You desire to make a fresh start. So, take the initiative and strike out on your own. You are in power today. Try: shining your shoes.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Nicole Kidman has said that she is embarrassed by the film Australia. At least she is able to criticize herself truthfully. Today is a “do not pass go” type of day. There will be temptation to just go home and crawl back into bed, but don’t do it. You will be hemmed in by the restrictions you have placed on yourself. Quietly observe your surroundings and head for the calmest corner. Try: making cupcakes.
