January 08, 2011|Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Psych yourself up in the mirror or in a journal. These practices might feel odd, but do them anyway. They will help you cultivate your winning style.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You will need to acquire a few new resources. Put the word out. You are most convincing in the afternoon.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Your day is full, and your energy surges to match the demand.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): Keep track of your good deeds on paper. This is so you can look back at your list and feel an increased sense of self-esteem.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Every year, you get better. Consider where you were at this time last year. Let yourself feel proud.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It matters less and less to you what people think of you. Because you are willing to risk injury to your ego, you will continue to expand your sense of what you are capable of doing.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The destination still seems very far away. Each milestone deserves to be acknowledged, but save the big celebration for the finish line.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Mentally and physically step away from the thing you want. Get perspective. Come back to it next week.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you are too available to a certain someone, you will lose respect. Put your own agenda first.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Instead of deciding to make fewer mistakes, try making more of them, if only for a day. This is how you can be sure you're trying for big enough goals.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A leader who is too soft won't help you. That's why you'll venture toward the tough trainer who will tell the truth.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): No one can keep you from feeling attractive, effective, powerful and appreciated unless you agree to let them. You have options.

Today's birthday (Jan. 8): You have terrific luck in business and finance this year, mostly because you're willing to work hard. This month brings reunions and surprising gifts. The end of a feud benefits you in February. There is luck in the invitations and requests you get in March. June brings adventurous travel. Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are 3, 14, 39, 23 and 11.
