Your Stars This Week by Stella Wilder

Your Stars This Week For January 31, 2021

ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may feel as though you've been trapped in someone's web, but it's only because you haven't devised a calm, rational strategy. Do it this week! (April 5-April 19) -- You will have to answer for something you did quite a while ago before you are allowed to move forward. This should not be feared, but embraced. Apologize first!

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- A new alliance has you looking in a new direction this week -- but you mustn't sever ties with the one person who has helped you get where you are right now. (May 6-May 20) -- You'll be more confident this week than last, but someone may still have the advantage over you. For the first time, however, you can see a way to turn the tables.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You will have to navigate rough waters this week, with someone else in tow who isn't as capable as you are. You must do all you can to keep both of you safe. (June 7-June 20) -- Difficulties are sure to arise this week, but you are able to handle all of them in turn. It's only when troubles come to you two or three at a time that you may falter.

CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You must not ignore those who are competing for your attention this week. What you do for them will come back to you in a way that almost guarantees success. (July 8-July 22) -- You can arrive at your destination in fine form this week, and the distance you must travel will have little to do with it. You're eager to prove what you can do.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You are ready to form a new attachment this week, but who is going to be the lucky one to be chosen? Now is not the time to lead anyone on; be clear. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You are ready to address a certain problem in a new and much more concrete fashion. Some may wish to stand in your way, but you are quicker and nimbler than they, surely.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Any time you are off balance this week, you can -- and must -- call upon a friend to help you restore equilibrium. This relationship is based on more than trust. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Now is no time to deny what everyone already seems to know. Jump on the bandwagon and work with prevailing trends instead of against them. Speak your mind.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may not enjoy doing what must be done this week, but you can still look forward to the day when you will not have to do it any longer. That's progress! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Someone close to you is more than willing to give you the benefit of the doubt this week -- but you are the one making life difficult for yourself. You must find out why!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- There is no call for pretense of any kind this week. You must deal in what is true this week, and avoid anyone who would confuse things through falsehood. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Through a unique combination of style and substance you'll be able to get done what others have only dreamed of until this week. You'll wield a new kind of power.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- The work you do this week is likely to attract a great many other people into your orbit, but you must do all you can to remain aloof -- at least for now. (Dec. 7-Dec. 21) -- You're trying to get something done despite the distance between you and a partner. You may devise a method this week that not only works, but closes the gap as well!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Success is not guaranteed this week -- when is it ever? -- but you're feeling good about the odds and will want to pick up the pace. Your partners are with you. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- It's important for you to be in just the right place at just the right time this week. No one is likely to question your methods or motives at this time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You can do much this week to persuade rivals to come together under a common banner -- at least for now. This gives everyone an idea of what's possible. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Now is not the time to go your own way; rather, you must be willing to reaffirm your commitment to a group project -- and to doing what you are assigned to do.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You'll have to follow the rules, surely, but there are ways to do that which allow you to explore things in your own inimitable fashion. Find them out -- now! (March 6-March 20) -- You've been talking about making a certain change for quite some time now, but only this week will it seem possible. You don't want to miss out on this rare opportunity.
