Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 08, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Consider making a change suggested by a friend who has been in your shoes in the past. Yes, there are differences -- but similarities, too!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A tense situation becomes worse today if you avoid it altogether. Your choice to become involved will work wonders from all angles.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Pay more attention today to those who are younger than you; they look up to you, whether you know it or not, and you owe them some time.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll be feeling the effects of something you did yesterday that is entirely out of the ordinary. Recovery can be quick, however.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Success today depends on your willingness to go out on a limb -- especially where a certain personal relationship is concerned.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to overcome one major obstacle today just in time to face another that is even more formidable than the first, perhaps.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- There is strength in numbers, surely, but today you're not in the mood to do many things with others. Solo efforts can be successful.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to take a firmer hand than usual today when dealing with those under your care. Discipline yields the results you're after.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's a good time for that new "push" toward a major goal. Don't make the mistake of dividing your forces or splitting your focus.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll like doing something that others are perfectly happy to avoid entirely. You can enjoy increased productivity now.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Look out the window and what do you see? You'll derive a great deal of inspiration from the most common of sights -- and all very close indeed.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have trouble deciding exactly how to say something that you know isn't likely to be received well. Does it have to be said?
