Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, January 3rd

We want to be responsible now, but it may be difficult to settle down and follow through on our commitments as mental Mercury tensely squares erratic Uranus. Although we are restless, help comes from three planets in stable Capricorn and the Moon in patient Virgo. Meanwhile, an optimistic Sun-Jupiter alignment tempts us to follow our bliss. The Moon’s shift into accommodating Libra at 8:10 pm EST reminds us to consider other people’s needs, too.


Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you may feel like changing the course of events today, others might not be willing to follow your lead. You could be too impulsive, since you’re inclined to jump to conclusions without having the necessary facts to support your fantastic ideas. Go ahead and be as inventive as possible now, but don’t expect anyone else to join in your parade. March to the sound of your own drum instead of waiting for something to happen.


Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You like knowing what’s real, yet a whole new set of data may come to your attention today that gives rise to self-doubt. You might even question whether or not you’re on the right track. Your resistance to change could harden into rigidity but this isn’t a sensible strategy, especially if your previous assumptions were wrong. Remaining open to other options doesn’t fix the underlying problem, but it can make your day easier to manage along the way.


Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You’re on top of your mental game today and can amaze people with your wit and wisdom. However, extra care is required or you might become so enthralled with your own cleverness that you take an argument too far. Too much eagerness on your part could cause you to lose ground in a conflict. Go ahead and take a risk, but think twice before pushing your luck.


Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You may step on someone’s toes unintentionally because you’re uncharacteristically insensitive today. Normally, you’re acutely aware of people’s feelings, but you might get so excited now that compassion falls to the wayside. Your temporary lack of concern doesn’t mean you are unkind; it’s just that your enthusiasm makes you a bit inconsiderate. The simple solution is to stop and think about the impact of your words before you speak them.


Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You are eager to enjoy yourself today, but previous commitments might present time management problems. Unfortunately, your nervous energy could grow distracting unless you consciously channel it into a creative activity. It’s a good day to work in partnership with someone whose approach is much different from yours. A collaborative effort can be highly productive and may even bring the personal satisfaction you were originally seeking.


Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

An unconventional plan helps to break you out of a familiar rut today. A job-related issue that’s been eluding resolution may suddenly be put to rest, with the answer coming to you like a bolt of lightning. But don’t take yourself too seriously, even if your solution is brilliant; acting in a self-righteous manner puts others on the defensive. Simply make your decision and then move on without the need to prove your superiority.


Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your day won’t likely run as smoothly as you wish because unexpected circumstances can have a dramatic impact on your schedule. Unfortunately, you might become quite frustrated if you cling to your original agenda. The smartest way to handle irresolvable tension now is to simply let it go. Acknowledging that fate is temporarily in charge of your life makes embracing the surprises more pleasant than resisting them to no avail.


Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Worrying about an unlikely outcome only creates additional stress as you become enthused about a radical approach to a sticky problem at work. There are many possible solutions now, but you have reservations about moving into uncharted territory by taking charge. Your ideas are probably better than you think, so go ahead and initiate action. You can always make necessary adjustments and try again later if you don’t hit the nail directly on the head.


Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The notion of doing something completely different from everyone’s expectations is rather thrilling now. Unplanned activities may supersede your previous commitments. You could even stir up a bit of mischief just to see what kind of reaction you get. Have fun; there’s no need to go out of your way to conform since your current unconventional ideas will likely lead to a sensible plan by tomorrow.


Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are usually cautious in your conversations about business, but your thoughts may be so loud today that it’s hard to keep quiet. You might even say contradictory things now, which lowers your overall credibility. Instead of rambling on and on, continue to develop your ideas on your own and wait until tomorrow before sharing them. You’ll have a much better chance of impressing others if your plan is well conceived.


Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your nervous system is wired tightly today while chatty Mercury is getting buzzed by electric Uranus, your key planet. Be careful, since you could easily commit your time and energy to a creative project that isn’t really in your best interest. Consider the consequences before agreeing to an endeavor that can drain your resources. There’s no reason to add more activity to your already busy schedule unless it’s something you really want to pursue


Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You want to show everyone how independent you are today, making you less accommodating than usual. Your patience may be tested, tempting you to say something that could be disruptive. Nevertheless, you don’t have to put up with childish games as long as you’re prepared to deal with the ramifications of your current rebelliousness. Thankfully, the results will be worth the temporary turmoil if you clearly express your honorable intentions to others.
