Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 13, 2020

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Being economical and efficient with both your time and your resources will enable you to achieve something memorable and lasting.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your perception of a certain situation may differ from that of one who was directly involved. It's time to listen instead of talk.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may think you've been duped by one who's out to get you. This is a misperception that feels real enough, and as such, it requires attention.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to work harder than usual to fit a certain activity into the time available to you today. Keep distractions at bay.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You will want to keep expenditures as low as possible today while seeking a personal advantage among co-workers. It's a tricky task!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not understand what is required of you today until you are in the thick of things. Be sure to take all available precautions.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You know what's affecting you most directly at this time, but you may not be able to reduce its effect. Instead, try making it work for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Things may not look the same today as they did yesterday -- for the very good reason that they are very different in small, subtle ways.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Make no mistake -- you are the one who others will look to for explanations when things go awry. You must, therefore, keep them on track.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Plans must be made in a logical, linear fashion today. You've put enough creative energy into things lately; focus on the nuts and bolts.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can make something pay off today that fell flat only yesterday -- and all it takes is a willingness to admit your own recent errors.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Working closely with someone to gain a greater command of an overriding issue is the wise course. You can't afford any mistakes.
