Horoscope for Jan. 25

Aries (March 21-April 19): A relationship is deepening. This is due to your latest discovery -- how to nurture yourself and others by simply listening and paying attention. Be receptive.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): When you’re around a certain someone, you feel more or less invincible. Talking to this person today will whip up the joy in your heart until it bubbles over.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Aggression can be channeled in a positive way. Your rage can be applied to give a project a magnetic quality. Or it can give your performance the edge it needs.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): No matter how well you do, you can always see how to do better. Stop and give yourself credit. Without treats along the way, you’ll have no incentive to keep striving.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Your conscience will be talking to you, and you probably won’t like what it says. But following its dictates will be just the act of maturity and self-discipline that can free you to be who you’ve always wanted to be.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Avoid attention hogs, and don’t be one yourself. Social grace means knowing when to give up the floor. Your conversational generosity gets the attention of someone who can help you in a big way.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You’ll say what’s on your mind. Your outspoken and direct forms of expression will be received as a total surprise to everyone around you, perhaps even you.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Your ideas are very commercial. If you share them with the right people, you both stand to make some money. Protect yourself, though. Your intellectual property has great value.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Taking care of the minor details will eat up a major part of the day. But it’s worth the effort. Shortcuts aren’t likely to work.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If anyone can be simultaneously assertive and laid back, it’s you. You’re astounding in your ability to strike two opposite tones at once.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You have so much work to do and no clue how you’re going to accomplish it all. The answer is in using your support system. That’s what it’s there for, and loved ones will be eager to help.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Everyone says the wrong thing from time to time. Be patient with someone who is socially awkward. And if that someone happens to be you, then afford yourself a measure of grace.


Today’s birthday (Jan. 25): This year brings you ever closer to your amazing potential. Seek training in the area that interests you. The very structures you once found oppressive will comfort you in February and March. There is freedom in discipline. May shows you in fantastic shape and ready to conquer the competition. Your lucky numbers are 8, 25, 40, 15 and 19.
