Horoscope: Jan. 17

January 17, 2011|Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): You are always doing something — mostly working, sometimes watching to see what happens, but never just waiting around.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You are not boring, and therefore, you are not bored. You can always find some interesting way to turn around a static situation.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Your kindness disarms people and puts them in a warm and fuzzy frame of mind.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): Being socially successful requires that you let a few minor mistakes and annoyances go by without giving them too much of your attention.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You're after a goal that a lot of others are after. Hold your ground as everyone jockeys for position.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are in such a fanciful mood lately that you may have to adjust your expectations to keep them in the realm of reality.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Sometimes you get tired of having to put so much thought and energy into presenting yourself socially. Does it really matter what you're wearing? It matters particularly today.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You'll be exchanging gifts. If a gift is extremely appropriate, it will be well received. A gift of much greater value that is not appropriate will be regarded with suspicion.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Whenever you mix it up with a certain someone, strange discord starts to happen around you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Someone slipped up, and it wasn't you. You don't want to go on a righteous crusade over the issue.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will have to fight to stay focused, especially when you interact with someone as creative and diverse as you are.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): There are times to stretch, learn and grow, and there are times when it's more appropriate to stay comfortable and contained — like today.

Today's birthday (Jan. 17): Your success secret is simple this year. You plan, take action and complete the mission. Your determination is unparalleled, and when you reach the top of one mountain, you immediately set your sites on the next one. Family ties fortify you, especially in March. Taurus and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 11, 24 and 19.
