Your Stars This Week For January 14, 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You don't have to prove yourself to anyone but yourself this week, but know that you'll be your worst enemy if you become overconfident. (April 5-April 19) -- You'll enjoy the give-and-take that arises out of a necessary interaction early in the week; perhaps you can make this last longer than scheduled.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to engage in activities that do not immediately suit you -- but later in the week you may find that you can get used to them. (May 6-May 20) -- You and a team of hotshots know how to get a certain thing done -- provided the powers-that-be will let you! You'll have to show that you are up to date.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may have more than one thing to guess about this week, as events transpire that take you very far outside of your comfort zone. (June 7-June 20) -- You'll hear much that makes you think, but that which makes you feel will prove much more important to you -- both immediately and in the long run, too.

CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll be asked some questions that require you to ponder things you'd rather not think about -- but progress will be made. (July 8-July 22) -- If you're expecting things to fall out the way you've planned them, you are sure to be disappointed. You must be ready for almost anything this week!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Despite your usual penchant for being specific and detailed, this week the big picture will prove far more important to you in many respects. (Aug 8-Aug. 22) -- A reunion is scheduled, but you may not be able to make it this week as you had hoped. You can explain without making excuses; you'll surely be forgiven!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You are after results that you can measure and analyze, but what you're likely to get this week is something far more ethereal. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- The memory of someone who moved you greatly in the past proves both bittersweet and quite inspiring. You can get started on something you've long wanted to do.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You'll want to keep your eye on the clock throughout much of the week, as you've been given only so much time to get many important things done. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Now is the time for you to admit to any recent wrongdoing, whether it was conscious or unconscious. You'll help others get over any related injury.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You think that someone is following the rules, but you may be surprised to learn that the rules may no longer apply to this shared endeavor. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The position you find yourself in this week has you counting your blessings -- and wondering what you can do to ensure that you are not replaced anytime soon.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're in the mood to break from tradition and try something that may seem rather crazy to those who know you well. It's all in the timing. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're unwilling to share all that you know, and at the same time you want others to be aware that you know more than they think. This is a conundrum, surely!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have to spend a great deal of time and energy this week convincing others that you are the right person for the job at hand. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- What goes around comes around, and you'll want to be sure that you are the catalyst, rather than one who simply has to react to what is going on all around you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You've convinced yourself of something that, this week, may be proved false -- but you can still make progress if you increase your flexibility. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Don't let anyone tell you that you don't have what it takes; this week, you'll be able to settle into a routine that sends the right signals to everyone.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may have to take sides this week, despite the fact that you had sworn to remain neutral. "Right" and "wrong" are clear in this conflict. (March 6-March 20) -- You'll want to do the right things for yourself and for someone you love -- but take care that you don't become overindulgent, for that way danger lies.
