Horoscope: Jan. 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Should you put up and shut up, or cut ties for the greater good? Instead of endlessly mulling it over, let's cut to the quick. The answer is: neither. There's a compromise that will work brilliantly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you're asking something of a friend, it might be hard to know how much is too much. The usual cues won't read so easily. A good rule is to be as self-sufficient as possible.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Are you doing it wrong? Is everyone? These are the questions you'll ask of your group now, preferring the brave and challenging response over the clueless consensus.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). A fluid attitude will serve you well. Let yourself be changed by new information. The stubborn people who don't react to what is going on right now will get stuck in the past.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know people, and you want the people you know to know each other. If you let this instinct to mix and mingle be your guiding light, you will end up with a lot of grateful friends.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are an investigator of sorts today. Random knowledge will delight you, and so will any task that requires you to seek it. Your curiosity is a rare and most attractive gift.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you have a lot to do, you will do a lot. The same goes when you have but a little to do. The key is to sign up for things. Pile on the responsibilities. You can handle them now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The truth has a funny way of coming out. You sense it, someone says it, and suddenly you realize that it has arrived and there's no going back. Bonus: The truth usually, ultimately, makes things better.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The people who are fully themselves might not say the things you want them to say, and that's the beauty of it. They'll say what they need to say, and you'll respect that impulse.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The reason you don't obsess about your own journey through this day is that you are, at least some of the time, thinking of the human condition.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Are you thinking or feeling? The functions are not mutually exclusive. Thinking without feeling is like dancing with only your feet - you'll fall. Believe in your inherent ability to counterbalance.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Don't ask anyone to change. Change is possible, but it usually doesn't occur as an answer to someone's request. Practice acceptance, and when that isn't working for you, try harder.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 21). This year you are most often present in the moment and happy. That is more than some of the most powerful people in the world can say. Love where you are in life. Words change your relationship for the better in February. June brings a coveted job offer. If you relocate in August, you won't be sorry. Your love signs are Taurus and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 34, 2, 22 and 18.
