Aquarian folks march to the beat of a different drum. They are rebels and certainly far from ordinary people. Aquarius is a fixed air sign and will get along best with other air signs, Libra and Gemini.

Aquarius needs plenty of space. They enjoy their freedom and without it they are lost. This sign likes new concepts of old ideas. They like contemporary living.

An Aquarian really likes being different. They work at being totally opposite of the mainstream of people. In keeping with that philosophy they accept new ventures with gusto.

Since this sign is ruled by ever-changing Uranus, an Aquarian can change in the blink of an eye.


People born this week: Bill Maher, TV host, Jan. 20, 1956; Geena Davis, Thelma and Louise movie star, Jan. 21, 1956; Guy Fieri, TV chef, Jan. 22, 1968; Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, pilot who landed a U.S. Airways plane on the Hudson River, Jan. 3, 1951; Nastassja Kinski, German actress, Jan. 24, 1961; Alicia Keys, singer, Jan. 25, 1981; Wayne Gretzky, former pro-hockey player, Jan. 26, 1961; Bridget Fonda, Henry Fonda’s granddaughter and actress, Jan. 27, 1964; and Nick Carter, singer, Jan. 28, 1980.


The moon will be in Leo when it is full on Saturday, Jan. 26. That means your emotions could be running high this week. So watch your step and don’t push any buttons of people who you know have tempers. Mercury will go Feb. 23 in the early morning. That gives you almost a month to get things organized and started.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) You are off the hook when it comes to blaming yourself for any mistakes you have made in the past if you just let it go. It is time to rethink your future goals and then move on them. Your soul mate is also waiting for you to make the first move.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) As Saturn moves through Scorpio it will be opposite your sun. This means you will be facing a new attitude and adventure if you just let things happen. Stop looking back and get to work. Your life is changing and so are you. It will be better if you just let things happen

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) The message you need to hear now is to move on by taking advantage of Jupiter in Gemini. That means you need to expand your horizons and look to improve your finances. Move yourself both at home and work – and smile. Your love life will be better very soon.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) This week you should get a real boost both at home and work. The reason is because of your change in attitude and your new goals. Let the people you really love know you are looking to make a few changes. They will love the opportunity to help you reach your bliss.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) It will take plenty of determination to make the moves you are planning. Just remember you are totally able to accomplish exactly what you want to do. You are coming into a week of challenge, but you are up to it and will win. Keep smiling and don’t stumble.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) The problems of the past will soon be yesterday’s nonsense. So avoid hanging on to the negative and understand the lessons you have learned and the brightest lesson must be self-reliance. Be happy and look for a new love to enter your life.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Being your cool, calm and kind self will get you much further than anything else this week. You need to look at your long-term goals and then start an aggressive routine to get things done for your own good. You will soon be in charge of a few important ventures.

Extra! Extra! Newsies Comes to Town

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) This week it is time to understand the promise of Saturn is actually great if you have been working hard on your future. It is payoff time for all your hard work and energy. Look for a partner that can help your latest venture.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) As you move forward with your new philosophy of life don’t get caught up in what other people think. If you are expanding your nature, then you are on the right track. Stay there and know you are on the correct path for you. Your love life could take on a new look if you just keep trying.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Words and smiles will do you some good in the business world if you just keep trying. Pluto, the planet of transformation, continues in Capricorn and you are making some changes. So don‘t stop the good work you have been doing and look for a new BFF. It could happen soon.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) It is time to know that talk is cheap and if you want to help you must give. This is a good week to understand the art of giving. Perhaps you should look deeply at the meaning of friendship. It will help you grow both spiritually and mentally.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) Living life with Neptune can be an awesome challenge. But Neptune can show you your life’s purpose, but it can also make you want to escape. So watch out for your methods of avoiding your real work: helping others and being in love.
