Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 18, 2021

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The powers that be are not interested in excuses today -- but you can provide one or two good reasons that get them thinking in a new way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can shower others with what they need today and enjoy some good things in return as the adage "what goes around comes around" holds true!

GEMINI (May 21-June 21) -- Your ability to see through the cloudiest of issues and shine light on the central truth will serve you and others well all day today.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Things being what they are, you're not likely to achieve much out of the ordinary today. Routine tasks at home, however, count for much.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to do things more quickly than you had planned, but that shouldn't be a problem if your preparations have been comprehensive.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- There are those who will wonder what you're waiting for, but those who know you best understand you need things to stack up "just so."

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be reminded of why you harbor certain doubts and fears today. At the same time, you'll realize you needn't hold on to them forever.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A piece of news takes on a life of its own today as you move forward making sure that others understand the implications of what you've heard.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- If it's a companion you want, you may have one -- but if you make the wrong decision, you're likely to regret much you do today.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have more to deal with today than you think -- but much of it will turn out to be routine. A surprise announcement has you making plans.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you are anticipating may not be in sync with the true possibilities, but you're eager to break through norms as you prepare for tomorrow.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A discovery takes you further than you ever thought you'd go today -- literally or figuratively. A family member helps you over a hurdle.
