Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 30, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- An extraordinary story is about to unfold, and you'll want to be right there when it does. You can, in fact, play a leading role.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may end something today in the same place that it began some time ago. You'll come to understand the cyclic nature of such matters.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can go further today than anyone might expect, especially if you bring to bear all the resources at your disposal. Don't hesitate!

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to accept rather harsh terms from someone to whom you are certainly beholden right now. The tables will turn soon, surely.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can make a few moves today that prove instrumental in furthering your cause. At least one part of your plan, however, presents difficulties.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A chance encounter puts you in an unusual position; if you take advantage of this "accident" before the day is out, victory can be yours.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can present one or two alternative strategies today and leave it to those in charge to choose which will be adopted. Either will work.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your complex nature will be on full display today, as you navigate seemingly contradictory stances over one very tricky issue.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be shaken by circumstances today, but soon you'll recognize that you've been afforded a rare opportunity. Accept it by all means!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There's no logical reason to think that you'll finish the day in anything but the lead position -- but not all goes according to plan at this time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be nearing an "endgame" of sorts, but you still have much to look forward to at this time. Don't confuse two conflicting issues.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You cannot afford to lose your nerve today. More important than why something starts is how it ends; your understanding of this is essential.
