Horoscope: Jan. 30

Aries (March 21-April 19): It’s fun to have romantic notions, but letting them rule your life is dangerous, with a high potential for pain.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You’ll be given new tasks precisely because you do things with a flourish and the person handing out the duties likes to watch you.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): You are enterprising and courageous and will happen upon new ways to express these qualities. You’ll do particularly well in business and finance.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You have some big goals; stay focused. Avoid distraction. Beware of a relationship that is like a shooting star, dazzling but impermanent.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You have a unique slant on the goings-on today, and your commentary is both humorous and memorable.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You will consider going back to something you quit long ago. Maybe it’s a gym or a club or a relationship. Resist the impulse, and see if it persists tomorrow.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You take your job as a trendsetter quite seriously. Others might be annoyed by copycats, but you know imitation is a sign that you’re on the right track.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Everyone fears rejection to some degree. Keep this in mind when new people approach you. Your kind smile will go a long way toward setting others at ease.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stop apologizing. Sometimes you do this for the smallest social infraction. Affirm that you have a right to take up space and be heard.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Get over your fear of sales. You’re not asking anyone to do you a favor. You’re just offering your talents, knowledge and energy.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): There will be a tribal aspect to your dealings. It will feel right to move together and contribute to the causes of the whole group.


Today’s birthday (Jan. 30): This year shows you setting one small goal after another in many different areas of life, with terrific results. You have a new ally in March. You’ll turn knowledge into dollars in April. You are rewarded for being a terrific friend in June. There will be sparks and romance in August. You have a strong bond with Scorpio and Sagittarius people. Lucky numbers are 5, 20, 12, 50 and 31.
