Happy Birthday for Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2023:
You have dignity in a practical, conservative way. However, in the next moment, you are wildly impulsive! You are always generous, kindhearted and helpful. This year is finally the time for you to receive promotions, awards and acknowledgement for what you do. You might assume a leadership role.
(March 21-April 19)
Parents and authority figures will be pretty intense today. Therefore, this is not the day to decide to challenge them. If you do, you will encounter more than you bargained for. Step aside — “a lot of men didn’t and a lot of men died.” Tonight: Explore.
(April 20-May 20)
This is a poor day for arguments and disputes about politics, religion or racial issues; nevertheless, you will probably be drawn into them! Try to avoid this if you can, because people will be intense and convinced that they’re right and that you will be better off if you agree with them. Oy! Tonight: Check your finances.
(May 21-June 20)
Don’t get embroiled in discussions about shared property, inheritances or insurance disputes, because you might have to contend with someone who is trying to exert unreasonable power over you. People are intense today, and they want to convince others to agree with them. Tonight: Cooperate.
(June 21-July 22)
Keep things light today. (If you can.) Avoid intense discussions with partners and close friends, because people can be quite pushy today. In fact, avoid dangerous areas and any possibility of a criminal element. There are some “heavy” vibes out there today. Tonight: Get organized.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
You might be determined to introduce reforms and improvements at your job today. However, don’t be pushy with others. (There are none so deaf as those who are wearing headphones.) Likewise, you might be super determined to improve your health today. Lighten up a bit. Tonight: Relax.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is a terrible day for romantic arguments, because they will get out of hand, possibly dangerously so. This is because people are intense and passionate today. They’re convinced they are right and others should agree with them — come hell or high water! Tonight: Cocoon.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Avoid intense family discussions and arguments today, because they won’t be pretty. Someone will try to push their views on others, and they might be overwhelming and aggressive. On the upside, you might see ways to make improvements at home. Tonight: Listen carefully.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Discussions with others will be intense, even overwhelming today. You might have to contend with someone who is trying to exert power over you, which will force you to defend your right to do things the way you want to do them. Oh yes, this is a day where people can be really pushy! Tonight: Guard your assets.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Avoid disputes about money and possessions today, because they could be nasty. On the other hand, you might see useful ways to use money or something you own to make improvements somewhere or to help a third party. Hopefully, you can do this. Tonight: You win.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Be careful who you hang out with today. Avoid people who are aggressive, angry or potentially criminal. This is the kind of day that brings the worst out in people. In fact, everyone will be intense and a bit aggressive, so be discriminating. Be smart. Tonight: Solitude.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Avoid dangerous areas today or places where there are few people, because this is the kind of day where the criminal element might be felt, even in a threatening way. Take the high road in every sense of the word. (Plus, the view is better.) Tonight: Listen to friends.
(Feb. 19-March 20)
You might encounter a friend who seems to be coming on strong today. Or perhaps this is someone in a group situation. If so, this is a poor day to contradict or cross swords with someone. You might be surprised at their reaction. People are intense and purposeful today! Tonight: Show respect.
