Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a dreamy day. Don’t be down on yourself if you spend a lot of time adrift in a fantasy world. We all need days like this. Since your imagination is heightened, you will be productive if you work in the arts or you write fiction or poetry. Ironically, you’re also mentally cranked to do serious, practical work as well. Go figure.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

If shopping today, you will be tempted to buy something luxurious and elegant and probably too pricey. (Gulp.) Fortunately, because Mercury is talking to Saturn, you will make sure you can pay for it. Saturn won’t let you go overboard. That’s why this is a good day for business and commerce.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a productive day for you because you are in touch with all aspects of yourself. You are imaginative, dreamy eyed, sympathetic and empathetic; and yet, you are also practical, down-to-earth and capable of making logical, reliable plans for the future. You can’t go wrong with all this working for you.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Alan Rickman (1946-2016) shares your birthday today. You are helpful, responsible and creative. You are modest and generally like to go with the flow so you don’t make waves. It’s time to get a better understanding of who you are. Explore meditation, yoga or other disciplines. This is also a year of teaching and learning. What you learn this year will be crucial for your progress and success next year.
