Anyone born this week is a combination of the planets Saturn and Uranus.

They are born on the cusp of Capricorn and Aquarius so they must learn to deal with the unpredictable and the totally responsible of the two signs.

This is a challenge from the get-go. Trying to combine Capricorn and Aquarius together is a man-size job that takes time and energy to accomplish.

To those born this week the gift of power and the talent of uniqueness is a treasure to anyone who knows them. They offer family and friends a unique way of looking at life. They are original in their outlook on life and offer each of us a new way of looking at our lives. They can be a pleasure to know and love.

People born this week: Rod Stewart, Jan. 10, 1945; Naomi Judd, Jan. 11, 1946; Kirstie Alley, Jan. 12, 1951; Liam Hemsworth, Jan. 13, 1990; Orlando Bloom, Jan. 13, 1968; Steven Soderbergh, Jan. 14, 1963; Martin Luther King, Jan. 15, 1929; Kate Moss, Jan. 16, 1974; and Maury Povich, Jan. 17, 1939.


The full moon in Cancer on Wednesday signals a week of high emotions and a time of swift decision making – but it would be wise to wait on really big decisions until after the full moon. Mars remains in Libra giving Libra, Capricorn, Aries and Cancer folks cause to think twice before making any quick, big-time moves. Best day for that would be Friday, Jan. 17.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you haven’t settled some of the situations that came to light in 2013, you might consider finishing some of them starting up right now. There are some matters that just won’t disappear without some real help from you. As soon as you finish, a new relationship will come into your life.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Your tendency to stay with projects – even when they are totally done –should be let go early this year. Also, once you have let go of one short-term relationship, you will feel a new energy and new talents will appear. You need to finish a few things and let the New Year happen. A new look at life is good.
