Your Stars This Week by Stella Wilder

Your Stars This Week For January 24, 2021

ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may not understand how the current schedule actually works in your favor -- but later in the week you'll realize you've been making it work all the same. (April 5-April 19) -- Questions of ability will arise again and again this week -- but you should find yourself sitting pretty when asked to do something that is squarely in your sweet spot.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You don't want to add any extra burden to your own -- or a partner's -- journey this week. Do what must be done, and when you can, take some time off! (May 6-May 20) -- Time can be your greatest ally this week, and you don't have to spend all of it rushing about everywhere. Indeed, slowing down can actually make it work for you all the more!

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may find yourself waiting for someone to deliver the goods this week before you can take full advantage of a situation that was only recently revealed. (June 7-June 20) -- You'll be the beneficiary this week of many other people's good intentions -- but will that be enough to keep you safe from harm? You must play an active role yourself!

CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You detect something in another's behavior that keeps you from doing what you had planned. As the weekend approaches, you'll learn just how wise this truly was! (July 8-July 22) -- If you must travel this week -- and it may be impossible to avoid -- you must take all precautions. Despite your confidence and good intentions, you are not infallible!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll see things in a new light this week -- but that isn't enough, necessarily, to make you rethink your motives or methods. More information is required. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- That which is obvious to you this week may not be at all clear to a friend or loved one. This is a good time to stay as close as possible and watch each other's backs!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You'll encounter something that challenges your belief system, but not to the extent that you'll consider another way of thinking. You'll weather this storm. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Even an expected opportunity may promise some rare rewards this week. You must take things as they come, and not be tempted to force any peripheral issues just yet.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- While others may feel that they must react to changing circumstances immediately, you may find this week that it's best to wait until you have more information. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Your perspective may be changing this week in a subtle way that, at first, escapes your notice. A friend raises issues that allow you to see things the way they are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may have gotten a little lazy in recent days -- or even weeks -- and now you're going to have to buckle down and get the work done. Eschew crutches! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Something you overlooked last week is likely to come to the fore before you know it this week -- and you'll be compelled to deal with it, perhaps in a brand-new way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You've always been adept at seeing through the fog to the landscape beyond -- but this week you may stumble as your view is obscured. This won't last long. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Find a time this week to work closely with a friend who knows how to get the best out of you. Use caution, however, and follow all applicable rules to avoid real danger.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You've been in denial about a central issue long enough; this week you will have no choice but to deal with it -- and that will change you in a few subtle ways. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Your agenda will take care of itself this week -- but you must be willing to jump in and help someone get things done. In the end, this can surely serve you well.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll want to address things in a moment-to-moment fashion, which will allow you to avoid any sort of "gloss" or "whitewash" approach. Get your work done! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You'll enjoy a second chance of some sort this week, and it will prove important to you -- not only from a work perspective, but also as it pertains to personal growth.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Time will surely be on your side as the week opens, but if you abuse it, it will surely turn against you. You don't want to find yourself racing the clock! (March 6-March 20) -- You may be tempted to begin the week in a defensive position because of what happened to you only a few days ago -- but a positive, forward-thinking stance is best.
