Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For January 19, 2021

ARIES (March 20-April 19) -- You don't want to express yourself in anything but the most direct terms today. Those who hear you must be able to understand all you say.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your wits are sharp and your ability to explain yourself is at an all-time best -- but still, someone you know may not buy what you're selling.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Hard work can surely pay off today, but you must tend to things in the right order if you want the rewards to match your lofty expectations.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- There's more than one way to skin a cat -- and today you'll be able to prove the truth of the adage in no uncertain terms. Stick to the familiar!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Any plans you've made the past few days have to be approved today, unofficially, by those who are helping you put them into motion.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can accomplish much more than a rival today, but not everything will be worth remembering. One thing will stand out from all the rest.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your ability to get to the crux of an important issue will surely pay off handsomely today, but you may not enjoy the reward for long.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have the chance to look back through a few chapters of your own past today to come up with the answer to one of today's big questions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't put your own interests ahead of someone else's today. Work on them together, simultaneously, for the best possible result.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A memory fuels you throughout the day. Someone who has been on the outs with you and your allies may want to return to the fold.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A wish comes your way today, and you'll feel somehow "blessed" by another who knows what you're going through. Progress is made.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll find it easier today to do your best than to do anything less. Your ambition is leading the way, and you can only follow.
