Fire-Sign Spirit The fiery combination of Sagittarius solar and Leo lunar influences will infuse the atmosphere with high energy, intensity and the spirit of expansion. This can bring good fortune, but it can also bring too much of a "good" thing. Ward against …Read more. Sun and Saturn Conjunct One reason the human species has changed much more than other animals who have shared the Earth with us for the last few hundred thousand years is that humans are perpetually dissatisfied. It's a survival instinct that has kept us striving, solving …Read more. Sun/Moon Quandary The Sagittarius sun has one idea about how to spend the hours — investigating foreign territory, taking in the world, expanding our minds — while the Cancer moon's urgings are to stay home with all the creature comforts. Somewhere in the …Read more. Comfort Moon The conflict between Saturn and Neptune still lingers somewhere "out there," or at least our imaginations would have us believe it. The Cancer moon, which is the cosmic equivalent of comfort food, will entice many to spend the evening at home with …Read more.

Horoscopes by Holiday for January 1

The Gemini moon's favorite pastime is word play. It's the perfect time to invent your own sayings, stretch your vocabulary or verbally spar with a witty and worthy opponent. As the sign of twins, the Gemini moon could have you repeating yourself, doing double takes and making duplicates, all for the sake of clear communication.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Two great things could happen to you today. The first is that you get what you want. The second is that you don't. Rejection is the universe's protection. Later, you'll look back and say, "Whew! That was close!"

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Small talk? Don't have time. Artistry and style? After the dishes are done! Try not to be militaristic in areas that require a more nuanced approach, like romance, or you could wind up hurting feelings.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Purchases from the Internet, wholesalers, discount stores, etc. are winners. And it's not so much about the actual money you'll save. It's more that you get a sense of pride from realizing how financially capable you are.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Fortuitous meetings are featured in the p.m. Something that starts out all business turns into riotous fun. And when Aquarius or Pisces people are involved, you're even more "on" than you thought.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your planets bode for an upside-down experience. You may as well dream by day, because your subconscious is busy being logical by night. You have an especially comfortable time relating to a Taurus person.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 1). The year reflects your new level of radiant confidence. Achievements are numerous this month -- some have to do with your continuous striving for knowledge and skills, and others relate to your financial picture. Compromises are made for the sake of love, sweet love in June. You have a fortuitous connection with Pisces and Scorpio people. Lucky numbers are: 10, 24, 18, 3 and 6.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Friends urge you to disclose the scintillating details of recent goings-on. Some facts about your life are no one's business but your own! The secret you keep inside grows in power, giving you fuel for what you must do next.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Not usually one to have a narrow view of things, you might still get hung up on the details. A few key words from the lips of someone you care about require further investigation. There seem to be many shades of "true."

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Wherever you go, you'll make friends -- especially if you share your inherent kookiness.

Being the new person on the scene gives you an advantage. Secret crushes are revealed tonight!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The atmosphere hums with surprises and opportunity. Just because something didn't work out in the past doesn't mean it can't in the future. All relationships are picking up momentum, especially love relationships.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If it's artificial, it won't satisfy you. You're on a mission to find purity -- raw foods, straight truth and paper instead of plastic. Tonight, you demand and get the bottom line.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your exceptional work makes you the talk around the office. Don't worry. You can live up to your legacy. Time spent alone is personally rewarding tonight -- but the next best thing is time spent with an Aries person.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Someone you've been trying to impress is also trying to impress you. The planetary spotlight is on quality, longevity and durability. See the big picture, and let the details work themselves out for now.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My boyfriend is a Pisces, and I'm a Scorpio. Are these signs a good match? I want to know whether I'll get married again. Thank you."

Yes! Pisces and Scorpio are both water signs who feel love on a deep level and take nothing about a relationship very lightly. Beware: He will always be on to you if you lie or betray him. Cheating would, more than likely, mean an end to the relationship. If you're ready to be completely true, this is a fantastic match.

"When I'm with co-workers or talking to the boss, I get super-nervous. I shake, drop things or lose my train of thought. Will I ever get better? (June 30, 1949)"

With so many Cancer influences in your chart, you're hyperaware of your surroundings and the moods of others. Uranus conjuncts your sun and makes you somewhat of an eccentric, and therefore your solutions on the job are brilliant -- just not the norm. Being afraid you won't fit in could be the main problem. Learn to celebrate your uniqueness, and this problem goes away. A career coach, counselor, hypnotist or improvisation class will help.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Suave Capricorn Taye Diggs has taken his striking chiseled features from stage to screen and back again. But do not let the insanely good looks fool you. Diggs is a disciplined and trained actor who smartly lets his face get him in the door and his talent lead the way. Diggs happily found his soul mate -- fellow fab musical actress Idina Menzel -- while lighting up the first Broadway production of "Rent." Capricorns are born workaholics who often wind up finding love at work!
