Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 16, 2021

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Putting a friend or loved one first today is a good start; you'll learn much from being in a situation that centers around someone else.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may require a helping hand today -- but take care that what you get is really what you most need. Help that doesn't help is no help at all!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Pick up the pace and tend to business matters as quickly as possible today. A loved one tempts you with an offer you never thought you'd receive.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're likely to head in a direction that separates you from the crowd -- which suits you just fine, actually. Solitary activities pay off.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may get off on the wrong foot today, but you can quickly rectify matters and begin to score small victories that have major implications.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to be sure that you take any and all complaints to the right people today. Don't bother underlings with issues they cannot control.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can take things into your own hands today and ensure that the end result is one that you can live with -- now and in the days to come.

SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov. 21) -- Your efforts will be appreciated today -- but not for the reasons you may have hoped. Indeed, what you do yields some strange results.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- That which is most apparent to another may be quite a mystery to you, but this difference can be overcome before things get difficult.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An informal game of show-and-tell has you wondering if something has been going on behind your back recently, as new information surfaces.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Reactions from others are likely to tell you that you've been doing things very differently from the way you were told. Is that so wrong?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're the only one who has to derive pleasure from what you do today, so there's no need to expose yourself to criticism from others.
