Horoscope: Jan. 22

Aries (March 21-April 19): You’ll be getting in touch with what makes you happy on a very specific level. A small detail has the power to enflame your passion. Virgo or Capricorn will introduce you to a new convenience or pleasure.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): A relationship is developing rapidly. In some instances, you will go thoughtfully; though, for the most part, passion leads the way. Your every move will determine the form this connection will take.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): There is someone who wants to work with you but is not yet at the level he or she needs to be to have an equal partnership. Consider mentoring this one.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): It will be lucky for you to operate within a group of people. Whether they are friends or strangers is irrelevant. With your personality, you will guide others to a consensus.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Go cautiously into partnerships of any kind. You are likely to get swept into the moment and promise things that seem very reasonable now but will prove challenging to deliver upon.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are sensitive and impressionable. It will take effort to change that. Be careful what you expose yourself to. A sad movie or bad news could stick with you longer than needed.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You’ll work quickly and efficiently. You’ll set the pace and tone. Then, when it’s time to stop and have some fun, you’ll lead the festivities too. It’s fun for you to take the lead.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Once you get down to business, life becomes a series of simple decisions. Your success will depend on your ability to be consistent and congruent.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone stands to earn a great deal of money from your efforts. Consider the pros and cons of going into business for yourself.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Go the extra mile to make a strong first impression. Lively encounters are fun to create. Years from now, someone will tell the story about how you first met.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): What seems natural to you may have very little to do with nature. You take readily to new technology, locales and the kind of socializing that could happen only in the present age.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You will be helpful to someone, and this will bring you happiness. But be careful to balance your contributions to others with attention to your needs.


Today’s birthday (Jan. 22): Your mind fills with creative notions about how to improve your life and the lives of those close to you. Your ideas will be well received in the next 10 weeks. In March, a close relationship changes to fit the way your life has evolved. Taurus and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are 5, 14, 33, 19 and 50.
