Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 18, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're not likely to have to work around the clock today, but you may have to put in a little extra effort as the day winds down.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are expecting to learn the results of a recent effort very soon -- but until then you'll want to think ahead and consider all options.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone brings to your attention today a fact or set of facts that challenges the way you have been thinking about a certain key issue.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You cannot ignore the evidence that is presented to you today; you must at least acknowledge that it puts things in a new perspective.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can come up with something today that others are going to want to adopt as their own -- but you can and must maintain bragging rights.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A new situation arises today that requires you to think of routine things in new ways. This in itself can result in tremendous personal growth.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are feeling confident and capable today -- which is good, considering that a rival is feeling much the same and is eager to challenge you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't have to wait for permission or approval today; you can move ahead with your plans, confident that the powers that be will support you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are not in the position you had hoped to be in yet. Today, you can make a move that promises to improve your situation permanently.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can expect to expend more effort today doing something that was quite routine only yesterday. Something has changed; find out what!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to put yourself out there today in a way that you would not have preferred if things had shaped up differently.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be caught in the middle of something that has you feeling both good and bad simultaneously. There is just enough room to maneuver.
