Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 16, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be in charge of the way things go at work or at play today -- but some people's behavior simply cannot be controlled right now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have good reason to speed things up right now, but you must take care that this isn't merely a knee-jerk reaction. Think things through.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can change someone's mind today about something that he or she was dead-set against. It's your unique approach that does the trick.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may realize that what you've been missing isn't really essential to you or the way you are living your life right now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can succeed at certain negotiations today, but not everyone will give you what you want. You must be ready to compromise.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone is painting a picture of the future that doesn't sit well with you. It's time for you to be more assertive as you move forward.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can take part in something very exciting today, but make sure that you don't endanger those around you by cutting loose too much!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- If it's a good deal you're after, you can have it today -- but you may have to depend upon someone who has been less than reliable in the past.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can tend to business in a way that puts people at ease or raises suspicions -- and right now there is really only one choice!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may find yourself with even more time on your hands today. There's an idea you've been developing that can now be put into motion.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will be playing the waiting game with someone who is trying to outdo you in an unusual manner. Evening brings a surprise to both parties.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll recognize certain opportunities hidden among obstacles that you expected to face today. You'll be more motivated than you thought.
