Happy Birthday for Saturday, Jan. 7, 2023:
You are patient, reserved and conservative. You value the respect you get from others. You are direct and straightforward when dealing with everyone. Your theme this year is one of service to others, especially family members. Therefore, it’s important to take care of your own health. Perhaps it’s time for a makeover.
(March 21-April 19)
You might have a power struggle with a parent today, especially about something from the past. This also might involve seeing a parent or an authority figure from your past. Either way, this discussion will be passionate and possibly a test of wills. Tonight: Play!
(April 20-May 20)
This is a classic day for arguments about politics, religion or racial issues, because people want to rehash something from the past. With Venus high in your chart, you can make people listen to you. (You’re smooth and charming.) Tonight: Cocoon.
(May 21-June 20)
This is the perfect day to do careful business with debt, insurance matters, inheritances and anything to do with shared property, because you’re ready to do this. You’re also ready to discuss old problems and past issues so you can move forward, especially financially speaking. Tonight: Share ideas!
(June 21-July 22)
Discussions with partners and friends will be intense today. Quite possibly, some kind of power struggle might take place. This might even be with an ex-partner or an old friend. You have the leverage today to encourage things to go your way. Tonight: Count your money.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Clean up old business related to your job or your work today. Likewise, you also might revisit past advice or methods related to your health. You have strong opinions today, and you want to be heard. Fortunately, relations with others are relatively diplomatic. Tonight: You win!
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Important discussions with your kids or with a romantic interest will take place today. You might rehash issues from the past, or perhaps you will talk to someone from the past you haven’t seen in a while. Don’t waste time grandstanding. Get to the point. Tonight: Enjoy solitude.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Power struggles might take place with a family member today, especially a parent. You might rehash old issues or talk to a relative or parent you haven’t seen in a while. There might be a debate about how to make improvements at home or how to fix something. Tonight: Schmooze.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might experience a clash of egos today with someone, especially a relative, neighbor or sibling. If so, this is likely a repeat of something that happened before. Be careful; this distraction could put you into a mild accident-prone situation. Tonight: You’re high-viz.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Money squabbles are likely today. Or you might have a quarrel with someone about shared responsibilities or shared property. This is a problem that has been addressed before, and it’s back again. With Venus in your House of Communications, you are tactful and diplomatic. Tonight: Explore!
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Power struggles with partners and close friends are likely today. Could this be because ex-partners and old friends are back in your life? Don’t waste time doing this. Your time is precious. Accomplish what you can and focus on how to improve your home or help a family member. Tonight: Check your finances.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Disputes with co-workers might arise today. Or perhaps you’re at odds with someone about a health issue or your pet. Fortunately, Venus is in your sign now, and Venus will sweeten your words and make you diplomatic in all your dealings with others. Tonight: Cooperate.
(Feb. 19-March 20)
Don’t try to convince a friend or a member of a group about your point of view about something — perhaps a social occasion, sports topic or even your kids. This difference of opinion might also arise in a romantic relationship. (There are none so deaf as those who are wearing headphones.) Tonight: Get organized.
