Today’s Horoscope: Thursday, January 8, 2009
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Oscar Jackman, Hugh Jackman’s son, appears to be well-rounded, as evidenced from his face-making at a recent New York Knicks game. When things start looking down today, take a moment and head over to a local playground to watch kids at play. Remember the innocence you felt as a child? Life was wonderful then, and it can still be wonderful, as long you remember that the child inside is still there. Let him or her shine though today – you won’t regret it. Try: programming your ICE (“in case of emergency” list) on your cell phone.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
There’s a rumor circulating that Jennifer Hudson may perform at Obama’s inauguration. Her life has gone from rags to riches and from dreams to reality. You love making an impact on other people’s lives, so take that love and make someone smile today. Your passion for creating the incredible from the impossible will shine through – if only you could believe. Just remember that you are incredible. Try: telling someone you love them.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Woody Harrelson has finally taken the leap and married his girlfriend of 18 years. This is a testimony to patience. Today, when you find yourself ready to give up, don’t. The unexpected will happen as long as you believe it can happen. When the boss starts giving you grief today, don’t worry about it – the planets have your back. You will triumph, and your patience will pay off. Try: leaving a larger tip.
Aries March 21 – April 19
A recent poll on BettyConfidential.com reported that 40 percent of women have faked a headache to get out of having sex. The question that should be asked is why are these women using a headache as an excuse when they are supposedly involved in an honest and warm relationship? Be honest today, no matter the question or the issues. Try to the answer in a way that won’t offend but still speaks the truth. Try: making a donation.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Caroline Kennedy may not know exactly why she feels compelled to run for Hillary Clinton’s vacant senate seat, but she does understand that you have to ask for what you want. Are you trying hard enough to go after what you want? Perhaps it’s time to examine why things haven’t gone as planned, and instead of abandoning the old plan, take on a new one, at least until you can come up with a concrete answer. Try: accepting that you can be wrong.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
According to Beverly Hills police, an arrest is imminent in the death of Scott Ruffalo. Endings can be tragic, but some are opportunities for new beginnings. Today, you will have several opportunities to start over and make things right. Remember when your dreams were all about making you emotionally happy? Well, today’s the day to forget what could have been and focus on what is. Try: cultivating a friendship.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
The Honey Brothers were spotted playing with the dolphins in Queensland. Beyonce and Jay-Z spent time in St. Barts. The list goes on and on. Traveling is something you love to do, yet you continue to come up with reasons why now isn’t the time. If you do nothing else, take a drive to another town nearby or catch the subway to another borough. Just get out and enjoy what’s there for the taking. Try: creating your own language.
Leo July 23 – August 22
You have to admire someone like Shia LaBeouf, who, upon leaving a meeting, discovered that his car wouldn’t start, and rather than do it the rich way, chose to grab some jumper cables and jump his car. Think about your approach to life and consider doing things the old-fashioned way. The old ways were easier and more relaxed. Try: memorizing three new words.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
The new-and-improved T-600 (robot) to be used in the May release of Terminator: Salvation has been spotted on the Web. The robot is not only a new design; it’s a lean, mean fighting machine that’s certain to blow up the screens when it debuts in May. This is something you can focus on outside of work – getting that body back to where you feel wonderful again. Try it – all you need to do is walk 10,000 steps each day. Try: writing a love note.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Nicole Richie and her boyfriend, Joel Madden, are considering having another child. Today’s a good day for starting or adding to your already active, full life. Your love for working as a team and pleasing those around you brings joy to your life. No matter the project, you will find the time to handle anything you consider. You are a great multitasker. Try: connecting with an old friend.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
There are some deaths that defy explanation (think: Johnny Cakes of the Sopranos, at age 47), and then there are those deaths that make you sad but you understand that the person lived a long, happy life (Eartha Kitt, who died at age 81). Life is all about how you live it. You may not understand how or even why some people go through life smiling on the outside while crying on the inside. All you need to understand is that help is available. Try: making a list of people you care about.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Rumors continue to circulate about JLo and Marc divorcing, but until it’s confirmed, hold the presses and stop the gossip. Today, instead of wondering what may happen in the future, worry about today – that’s what counts. Remember, if it’s broken it can still be fixed, so before you run, think about whether the grass really is greener on the other side. It has been reported that the grass may be brown. Try: organizing your e-mail.
