Horoscope: Jan. 17

January 17, 2010|By Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): You are a generous, loyal and loving human being. And you will find at least five ways to show this to the world before the day is over.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): The Chinese proverb suggests that you cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can stop them from building a nest in your hair.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Right now, there is someone who gets on your nerves. If you really want to embody the spirit of love, seek to understand this person.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): When a door closes to you, don't stare at it wondering what went wrong. Look high and low for another entrance. With a combination of persistence and intelligence, you will get everything you want.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Your childlike wonder will be reignited. Believe first, then you'll see. You'll rub off on someone who desperately needs a bit of magic in his or her life.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You'll be around a know-it-all. Well, you're no slouch when it comes to offering informational tidbits. But you have to consider whether engaging in an information showdown is really worth it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Move. Even if you're not completely sure it's right. It will be easier to correct your course when you are in motion.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Someone will oppose your views, speak against your work or criticize your methods. Such a person is a gift. The connection between you is a sacred one, since it allows you to become strong.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll be looking for something lost -- certainly not your favorite thing to do. Consider whether losing this thing in the first place might be a blessing.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The balance between work and your personal life becomes an important issue to take on. Don't you deserve fun too?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You'll honor the person who has made you feel truly special. This happens easily, naturally and probably not in the form of a fancy dinner or a plaque. Your honor comes in the form of a thankful prayer.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You'll discover what you're looking for. And if you aren't looking for anything, you'll discover it but won't know what it is and what to do with it.

Today's birthday (Jan. 17): People don't know what to expect from you and the surprises you come up with this year will be delightful to all, including you. A round of good luck affects your whole family in February. Finances perk up when you knuckle down to work in March. Wedding bells ring in November. Your lucky numbers are 40, 1, 22, 30 and 18.
