Happy Birthday for Friday, Jan. 20, 2023:
You are a sensitive, hardworking realist. You are ambitious and original. You have a distinctive style and a quirky sense of humor. This year is the beginning of a new nine-year cycle for you. Be courageous. Explore new pathways. Open any door! It’s time to take action and show initiative.
(March 21-April 19)
For the next four weeks, you will be more popular than usual. Enjoy schmoozing with friends. Expect to interact more than usual with clubs, groups and organizations. This is also an excellent time to write down goals for the future. Tonight: You’re high-viz.
(April 20-May 20)
The Sun will be at the top of your chart shining down on you for the next four weeks, casting you in a flattering spotlight! This is why others will be so impressed with you, even if you don’t do anything special. (Hollywood was right — good lighting is everything.) Tonight: Explore!
(May 21-June 20)
Grab every chance to travel and do something different, because you want to expand your horizons in the next four weeks. If you can’t travel, you can travel through film and books. You also can be a tourist in your own town. Do something different. Shake it up a bit! Tonight: Check your finances.
(June 21-July 22)
For the next four weeks, your attention will turn to red-tape issues related to mortgages, loans, taxes, debt and shared property. This stuff isn’t going to go away on its own. (Although, weirdly, sometimes it does. Never underestimate the power of procrastination.) Tonight: Cooperate.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
The Sun will be opposite your sign for the next four weeks, which will increase your focus on partners and close friends. It also will make you feel more tired than usual, which means you will need more rest. Fight your tendency to be a superhero, and get more sleep. Tonight: Work.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’ll be happy and pleased to discover that in the next four weeks, you will work well and efficiently and be productive! You will even have high standards for your health, which is why you might explore a new health regimen. Tonight: Play!
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Lucky you! For the next four weeks, you want to play and have the freedom to be yourself. You’ll be like Popeye: “I yam what I yam!” Accept all invitations to party. Enjoy fun activities with kids, sports events, social diversions and the arts. Tra-la-la, tra-la-la. Tonight: Cocoon.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Home, family and your private life will be your primary focus for the next four weeks. Many of you might be involved with the needs of a parent more than usual, as well. Enjoy this chance to hunker down among familiar surroundings. Tonight: Schmooze.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The pace of your days will accelerate in the next four weeks because you have a busy schedule — short trips, errands, increased interactions with siblings, relatives and neighbors, as well as reading and studying more than usual. Busy you! Tonight: Check your possessions.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your focus on your possessions, earnings and cash flow will be stronger than usual in the next four weeks. In fact, many of you might dream up clever moneymaking ideas. This is an excellent window of time to go through what you own and take inventory. Tonight: You’re in charge.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The Sun will be in your sign for the next four weeks, which is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. This will also give you the advantage of attracting important people to you, as well as favorable situations. Furthermore, you will project yourself as having more drive and enthusiasm! Tonight: Solitude.
(Feb. 19-March 20)
Life will be more low-key in the next four weeks. Therefore, this is the perfect time for you to define some goals for your new year ahead (birthday to birthday). Goals will give you a sense of positive purpose. Tonight: Be friendly.
