Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 12, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to continue along your current course unimpeded. It's likely that someone will try to slow your progress today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Productivity is on the rise, but you may not be in the mood to collaborate with others. A certain amount of teamwork is unavoidable.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can look back on a certain past project and be proud of your contribution. Now it's time to plan something just as exciting.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have special needs today that can be met only by one who knows you better than anyone else, but he or she can give you only so much time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Follow instructions today, but know that you will have some "wiggle room" later on and can benefit from a little improvisation. Use your imagination.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone who has played an important part in your life in recent days or weeks is likely to fade into the background for a time today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can go your own way today without thinking that others will fault you for your independence. Indeed, you're likely to inspire them!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your day is likely to progress according to plan, for the most part -- but after dark you must expect a surprise to shake you up a little.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Trust proves a major issue today, whether it is trust of a certain individual or trust of the "system." Your instincts serve you well.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are involved in a great deal of clandestine maneuvering today, which can be quite time-consuming. Why not do it all out in the open?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You cannot afford to increase your stress level at this time, lest you suffer irreparable damage of some kind. Lie low today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You know what you're looking at, but you may not understand why it's happening now and not at some later date. Get all the info!
