FOR RELEASE: WEDNESDAY JANUARY 11, 2012
The Leo moon makes sure that the day is imbued with more style than content — more "show" than "go." There will be just enough drama to keep things interesting, though tomorrow many of the details will be fuzzy if not forgotten. It's more about being playfully in the moment than making any lasting impression.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The friendship you seek is less important than the friendship you bring. Go into the social scene ready to be a stellar listener, and give others a quality of attention that will make them feel important.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There will be those around you who act as though the rest of the world was born to serve them. You'll be the reality check, politely drawing boundaries and restoring balance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're a sensual being. As intellectual as you may be, you're always operating on another level, too, a level that is affected by things like color, warmth and music. You'll gravitate toward beauty and comfort.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's one thing to talk about the things you appreciate and quite another to let those things generate a joy in you that radiates from your heart and rings out through your body and into the atmosphere.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Where you go in your imagination you can go physically, as well. The reverse is also true. You'll test the theory by trying to imagine yourself experiencing something you want. It may take several attempts to picture this, but keep trying.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Most people are their own worst enemy. Realizing that you've sometimes inexplicably acted to defeat your own interests, you'll seek victory over that part of yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). How you communicate will convey much more than the actual words you say. Everyone around will read you loud and clear, and will sense how you really feel even if you don't speak of it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The chopping block comes out, and something has to go. The elements of your life that do not serve an obvious function will be up for scrutiny. Note that just because something is enjoyable doesn't make it superfluous.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Without your influence, there are those who won't be able to tear themselves away from the negativity of the world. You'll find an anecdote for the negative stuff going on, and you'll share it with others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have the time for what you really want to do.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There's a cause speaking to your heart. You're still not sure what you can do that would make the biggest difference. Since this can't be predicted, the best thing to give is what you want to give.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you're true to yourself, things might work out and they might not. But at least you will be proud of your actions. If you succeed by doing something other than what feels right to you, the victory will be hollow.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 11). What you once thought was unfair will prove to be the best thing that ever happened to you. You'll build up your resources through February and March. Then in April you'll be ready to bring a new side of you to the world. You'll be met with applause, as well as some excellent advice about how to proceed. Libra and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 50, 31, 28 and 4.
STRESS AND YOUR SIGN: Each sign is different when it comes to stress. What one sign considers taxing another finds exciting, and tension remedies vary from sign to sign, as well. How does your sign deal with the more unnerving aspects of life?
GOOD STRESS: Gemini enjoys intellectual challenge, games and conversation. So social situations that would have more introverted personalities shaking in their boots are usually something Gemini looks forward to. The prospect of a pop quiz or a kind of test is also something that can motivate instead of frustrate Gemini.
BAD STRESS: Having to say "no," deliver news that might be considered bad or disappoint people in any way can be a source of worry and fret for the social twins. Also, Gemini is likely to run from situations that seem like they might get emotionally heavy or overly serious or somehow obligate Gemini to make a commitment.
STRESS BUSTER: Setting priorities will be a move that makes Gemini's life much easier. When twins know what they are saying "yes" to, they almost don't even have to say "no" to the other option, because it's implied by the path they are already on.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: The lovely actress Amanda Peet will soon join an all-star cast in the next film by acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick. Peet's natal Venus and Mars in Capricorn reveals that she is competitive, strategic and driven to do what it takes to be great in both life and art. Several planets in Aquarius indicates a deep need to contribute to the public good.
