Horoscope: Jan. 9

January 09, 2011|Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Merely being in the vicinity of a certain person changes your whole outlook and experience. Is this connection you feel physical, psychic or cosmic?

Taurus (April 20-May 20): The substance of the stars shines through your every cell, and the light reaches to the far corners of the universe.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): You will be in harmony with someone who knows how to bring out the best in you. It's like your heart is made of chimes and this person is the wind.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): Be wary of anyone who is just saying what he or she thinks you want to hear.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Ask for what you really want, and you'll get it. If you ask for what you think you should want, it's not the same thing.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are your own best opponent. You offer just the challenge that will be most motivating.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): When you give, it obligates the other person to reciprocate — but that's not why you do it. Your gift comes purely from the heart, and you will be received in kind.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You'll be praised for one thing when you really ought to be recognized for something else entirely.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep it real. Just because you are being yourself does not mean everyone will accept you. But those who do will accept the real you, and that feels good and right.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Having a greater number of relationships (or virtual relationships, as the case may be) might mean you are popular, but it doesn't necessarily mean you're happier.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): To get closer to someone, you must depend on this person and have this person depend on you. That's why doing everything yourself doesn't work. It breeds resentment. Let down your guard. Ask for help.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Please yourself. Life will get much simpler, and you'll have a blast catering to your own needs.

Today's birthday (Jan. 9): You'll travel this year and grow from your experience. You'll surmount the obstacle that was holding you from harmony. This month, shared laughter builds bonds. February brings unexpected visitors and new relationships. There's a financial gain in April. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 23, 28, 33 and 20.
