Today’s Horoscope: Wednesday, January 7, 2009
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
You have always been surrounded by strong, giving friends who adore you. Perhaps those same friends will ask you to sign up for the next Amazing Race tryouts, which are coming up this year. You should team up with those friends to work on keeping your foot to the metal. That way, you won’t be able to make excuses. Try: thanking the crossing guard.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Another version of Real Housewives is on the way – Real Housewives of Newark! And you thought that the light at the end of the tunnel was the light of day. But it’s not; it’s a train. This has been a long journey, but you are finally reaping what you sowed. Congratulations, Aquarius – you’ve finally reached the point in your life in which your rewards for doing the mundane have paid off. Try: laughing longer and harder.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
It’s been reported that Tom Cruise purchased a bombproof car that can ward off anti-Scientology protesters. Sounds a bit like overkill, but who really knows. That’s precisely what you need to think about today – little things can save you from yourself and from your overactive imagination. If 2008 was any indication of how life treated you when you let your guard down, then 2009 will be the same – unless you take action. Try: washing your hands more.
Aries March 21 – April 19
Your obsessive nature has proved beyond a shadow of doubt that you are in control of your life. There’s nothing that you can’t make work, and there is nothing that won’t work once you decide on a solution. In a lot of ways, your outlook on life is similar to Madonna’s and Guy Ritchie’s (think: their arrangements for handling the children after the divorce) – you make things happen because that’s who you are. Try: coming up with a new idea.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
You may not agree with Salma Hayek’s smoking in front of her kids, but you have to agree that parents get to raise their children based on their individual beliefs. What are yours? What exactly are you passionate about? If you can’t answer these questions quickly, then take some time today to figure out what makes you tick. And if you do answer the question quickly, then you are one step ahead in the game of life. Try: wiping your phone down.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Awareness is the keyword today. Events will unfold that will put pressure on you to explore the fantasies you have secretly been harboring. Perhaps you’re like Nicole Richie, who believes that a healthy sex life can create a healthy and long-lasting relationship. Start setting the stage early, and tonight will be pleasurable. Try: volunteering at a soup kitchen.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
If you want to create your future, you have to take the steps now. Just don’t take your lead from “Chip,” who mailed some Republican friends a CD that can only be described as distasteful. However, today you will be guided step by step into a world that you have done the necessary work to create. Try: placing a plant on your desk.
Leo July 23 – August 22
You have always felt entitled and you should, because you’ve earned everything you have. There’s nothing wrong with that, provided all your cards are in order – just ask the Merrill Lynch exec who negotiated a $50 million dollar pay package, provided he could sell the company. A couple of days later, Bank of America bought the company, triggering a payout to the exec – who resigned soon afterward. Try: visiting a church.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Leighanne, wife of Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell, recently found out that their son suffers from atypical Kawasaki disease. Her advice to everyone when she was interviewed was that if you feel like something is wrong, follow your instincts. That’s what you need to do today; if your instincts tell you to go right and you wanted to go left, then go right. The universe is talking, so pay attention and heed the advice. Try: saying a silent prayer.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Dreams, especially your dreams, take time to come true. That doesn’t mean that you should stop dreaming; it just means that while you are focusing on one dream, others come along that may take your attention. When American Idol hopeful Jennifer Hudson first appeared on the show, she spoke of her dreams for the future. And while she didn’t win in the final rounds, she did end up winning. Be patient, but stay focused, as your dreams can come true. Try: feeding a squirrel.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Take a moment today to reflect on all the things you are thankful for. Start off by thanking those who raised you and the morals that you received. Then move on through your life and note the thanks that you owe to those who shaped your life and made it what it has become. Be especially thankful that you aren’t dealing with baby mama drama (think: Larry Fitzgerald). Try: putting a quarter in an expired meter.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Texas and Louisiana prisoners are fighting for the right to be paid fair wages for working in the agricultural field, picking cotton, fruit and vegetables. Currently the workers make from zero to 50 cents an hour toiling in the hot sun for 10 to 15 hours at a time. Both states say it’s the way it has always been done. The past is no basis for you to judge the future. You have the ability to live your dreams, so start now, not tomorrow. Try: wearing a smiley face.
