Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 17, 2021

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can expect your day to progress according to plan until a surprise encounter throws it into temporary disarray. You'll recover, surely!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be getting yourself into something that you won't be able to get out of quickly should you so desire. Think twice before committing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You needn't spend time explaining yourself to those around you today. Trust that they will come to understand what you're doing in time.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Anyone who likes what you like will make for fine company throughout a day that is full of options for both work and play. Get started!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Just because you have work to do today doesn't mean you cannot give someone younger than you a little more time than usual. By all means, do so!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your style is unique and recognized by many -- but you cannot simply rely on style to see you through today. Substance counts for much right now!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must take seriously any and all warnings you receive -- but especially those that come from a source that doesn't usually make itself heard.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The currents you'll be battling today come from within. Be sure to give someone a little more room than usual. You stumble upon a bargain.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's a fine day to share your plans with someone who you hope will want to join in the fun -- but his or her reaction may surprise you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Without a sense of purpose you're not likely to be productive today -- and someone you know well will provide exactly what you need.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can't very well expect a certain someone to give you what you want if you aren't willing to say it. Mind reading is unreliable!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have the chance today to re-create certain enjoyable circumstances from the recent past -- but not everyone will appreciate the effort.
