Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 17, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is no time to put things in uncertain terms; you must be direct and unequivocal as you make a proposal.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A good friend comes to you with an unexpected request. The difference between right and wrong may be more apparent to you today than usual.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You owe more than you thought to someone who is ready and eager to be paid. You may have to make an unusual arrangement before day's end.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can come up with a new way of doing something that not only succeeds but also attracts the attention of someone you greatly admire.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You want to reach out to someone with whom you have been out of touch for quite a while, but self-consciousness gets in your way, perhaps.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been waiting to do something for quite some time, and today the opportunity will arise -- and you must jump at it or miss it entirely.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Are your expectations realistic right now, or are you setting yourself up for disappointment? Focus on what is right in front of you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can be more helpful to someone else than he or she is to you -- but that's no surprise, really. It's been this way for a while, yes?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself in charge of something that is far more difficult to complete than you had expected. Get expert advice!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you want to share with others may not be valued in the same way by everyone. A little goes a long way in certain cases.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be waiting for someone else to take a step forward today before you can progress as you had planned. Avoid gridlock by all means!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You find yourself in an uncomfortable position today, thanks to someone who doesn't understand how you are involved in his or her affairs.
