PhePhe on Astrology
Today’s Horoscope: Monday, January 5, 2009
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
While 2007 was the year for celebrity arrests and rehabs, and 2008 was definitely the year for celebrity nudity, in 2009 you can expect things to change with not just celebrities but with yourself as well. Today, you will find yourself contemplating just what it is that is stopping you from achieving what you want in life. Perhaps the answer resides in your consciousness. Try: cultivating a friendship.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Yellowstone National Park has been experiencing a host of small earthquakes, but your day will be smooth sailing from start to finish. Everything you have been looking for will be found in unexpected places. You need to exercise some patience today, so instead of going full steam ahead, sit back and wait for your glory. Try: grooming a klutz.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Sometimes it may feel that all you are really doing in your life is completing the least objectionable thing on your to-do list. Your first defense is to avoid anything that offers a challenge to a procrastinating nature. You may find yourself biting the bullet and making events happen. Go ahead and reorganize your head, and then face the tasks head-on. Perhaps you should complete the hardest task first. Try: mediating a dispute.
Aries March 21 – April 19
Tone down that ego of yours today. You may believe that you are special, but understand that you are only special to those who love you. Take a hint from Balthazar Getty’s recent downsized role on Brothers & Sisters – where sources reveal that he is difficult to work with due to his overinflated sense of self. If you notice that your coworkers cringe when you enter the room, it may be because they find you needy and difficult to work with. Try: being happy.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Beware any offer that sounds too good to be true. Kevin Bacon has confirmed that he lost a good chunk of money by investing in Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. Today, make it a point to read the fine print on all documents that you sign. It would be wise to do a little sleuthing of your own to confirm what you see in black and white. Remember that no one can con an honest man. Try: being honest.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
The recession has affected everyone’s pocket, from the rapper Jay-Z to the soup kitchens in your neighborhood. Today, you can expect a reprieve from pinching your pennies. Extra money will pour into your pockets. Take your sudden windfall and go out and blow it on something that will make you laugh. Try: showing interest in someone else.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
Expect lots of flirting to go on today. The flirting will boost your ego and make you feel sexy and loved. You may want to take it to another level by sending a sexy and very naughty text message telling him or her what you really would like to do later in the day (think: Nicole Richie and Madden). Try: learning a new song.
Leo July 23 – August 22
Today will feel a lot like Tom Cruise’s defying expectations and winning favorable reviews for his portrayal of a Prussian army officer in Valkyrie. Don’t make any bets on future outcomes. What you thought was certain to happen will not go as planned. Instead of eating crow for dinner tonight, you may want to just sit back and let events unfold. Try: reading a poem.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
You may find yourself wondering why your career is at a standstill. With the New Year beginning, you should start thinking about working on a second career (think: Zooey Deschanel). With your penchant for organization, the possibilities are unlimited should you decide to make a change. Head over to your local college and check out continuing-education classes to see if something appeals to you. Try: writing a limerick.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Eva Longoria recently revealed that she loves taking care of her man. Her take on life echoes exactly what you feel about relationships: You love nothing more than taking care of someone else. Today, you will find that the roles have reversed, and someone will be taking care of you. Enjoy the rush while you can and don’t be afraid to take on the pity role; it may mean you get more attention. Try: drawing a self-portrait.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Your coworkers will remark on your appearance today. Some may think that you have had plastic surgery to improve your appearance. Tell them the truth: It took hard work and lots of discipline to get the new look. You may be a little vain about your appearance, but one thing you love about yourself is that your body has changed, but your friends and family have come to love your evolution (think: Cate Blanchett and her recent interview with Vanity Fair). Try: creating a new game.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
You will be hearing bells in the very near future, but they won’t be wedding bells (think: the engagement of House of Payne actors Marcille and Lance). All your previous efforts will pay off. Expect today to be the start of a grand race, and you will come in first. Try: planting a flower.
