Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 31, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The stakes are high today, but you won't be the first one to flinch, surely. You can see things through if all was as it should be.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can control all aspects of a certain project today, but you must wield your individual power in a way that inspires those around you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can answer someone else's unexpected aggression in a way that renders useless most of the weapons he or she has collected to date.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can match someone else's tactics point for point today, but the result may not be what you had hoped. Things likely get bogged down.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone who has always been on your side may express certain doubts today. You'll find yourself in need of a new kind of support, perhaps.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are confident and capable, but the same old strategies and tactics aren't likely to give you what you want today. Try something new!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be in your element today after a change that no one could anticipate or forestall. It's up to you to make good things happen.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you are asking for may not be possible yet. This doesn't mean you should give up on the idea altogether; it's not your turn just now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Things aren't likely to pan out today if you remain stationary; you must be mobile and by all means adaptable.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can give someone precisely what he or she is asking for -- but it may take some time. You mustn't make any hasty moves right now.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your best bet today is to lead by example. What you do can be imitated by others, and the overall effect can be just what you had hoped.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must not risk severing a key lifeline today; keep communication open, and you'll have the information you most need right when you need it.
