TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 27). You’ll become masterful and powerful this year as you specialize. As the great fighter Bruce Lee said, “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” New friendships blossom in March. There’s a makeover in April and important travel in July. Cancer and Libra adore you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s fine luck you are not tempted by the same things others in your group find irresistible. You will help the others focus and stick to what’s positive and productive.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). As you bring order and tidiness to your home, you confront yourself, remember details of life, decide who you want to be, see who you are, and (bonus!) get a clean place to operate from.

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Your choices affect people you’ve never met in ways you can’t control and never know about. Gandhi said: “Live simply so others can simply live.” 

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You’re not here to judge. But can you really help it? If you don’t make a judgment, you won’t know how to safely and healthfully interact with people. The best you can do is to be soft, open-minded and discreet.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are responsible for your actions and reactions and that’s all. Make your goal about the effort, not the outcome. You can’t control the result, and it’s better that way. Trust life’s process.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some say: “Fake it ‘til you make it,” others: “Make it and keep making it so you won’t ever have fake it.” Which school do you belong to today? If you fall in love with the process, the need for acknowledgement lessens considerably.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s something transcendent about your connection with a certain person. Makes you wonder: Are you human having a spiritual experience, or are you spiritual having a human experience?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s time to move out of the research-and-development part of a project and into preparation and planning. Even if you spend all day on this, you can count yourself enormously productive. Preparation will be crucial to success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As you become less concerned with winning friends or attracting attention, you focus mostly on fulfilling your purpose. With this mindset, anyone you attract will be a person who supports the most authentic parts of you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s a reason the words “strong’ and “silent”often go together in describing a certain type of individual. The one who is confident and egoless enough to use words sparingly wields powerful charisma.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Talking and fantasizing about the goal can actually take the appeal out of “doing it” it because the mind gets bored and starts treating the idea like it’s already been accomplished. Move quickly from vision into action.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There may be a lot of gray area about whether a choice is good or bad, so don’t ask that question. Instead ask whether it’s for you or not for you. Will it help you to do what you set out to do or not?
