Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, January 9th

Common sense wins out over unrealistic ideas no matter how optimistic we feel today. Although the visionary Sagittarius Moon inflates our expectations and increases our confidence, her stressful connections with courageous Mars and cautious Saturn send us mixed cosmic messages now. However, magnetic Venus is now in practical Capricorn, prompting us to ultimately pay more attention to stabilizing relationships than initiating new ones.


Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Someone at work might ask for your help today, but there could be more trouble here than meets the eye. Be careful about what you do, for your behavior may create big expectations that you cannot fulfill. Don’t respond to the situation with clever rationalizations or outrageous ideas. Instead, do whatever needs to be done, but not more. There are times when limited actions can accomplish the most.


Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It may be easier to make plans now than to actually execute them. Your key planet Venus lures you to envision the future as she joins three other planets in your 9th House of Big Ideas. Although thoughts come quickly to you today, your progress is impeded by circumstances beyond your control. Don’t waste time worrying about something that goes awry; just reconsider your options and try again when the timing is right.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may be inclined to set aside your responsibilities today and do things that bring you momentary pleasure. Unfortunately, it might not be that simple to find people to join your party because others may be more serious than you now. Don’t complain about your social situation; if necessary, you can still have a delightful time all by yourself.


Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your emotional sensitivity means that you don’t miss much, so it’s challenging for someone with mixed motives to get past your radar. However, your acute awareness can also make life more complicated as you analyze your feelings. Your early warning system may not detect the simple twists of fate that the universe now has in store for you. Don’t try too hard to figure it all out in advance; simply let go and enjoy the ride.


Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Just when you thought you were done processing all the emotions that were lurking in your subconscious, you realize that there are more hidden feelings buried out of sight. Although these pockets of intensity start to bubble to the surface today, they are not dangerous. In fact, delving into the depths of your heart will uncover rich treasure if you are brave enough to take the dive.


Virgo Horoscopes

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might feel as if time is running out, but the faster you attempt to complete what’s on your plate, the slower everything appears to move now. If you panic, time may even seem to stop for a while. This current lack of productivity places you in a difficult position because you can become very self-critical when you’re not being efficient. Cut yourself some slack and just finish your work with as little drama as possible.


Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your life is at a critical junction now that new information is being thrown your way, bringing complex issues out into the open. Thankfully, your growing knowledge base enables you to make better decisions. In the meantime, integrate the events of the past couple of days, even if you don’t have the full picture yet. Accept circumstances that you cannot change while working toward improving everything else. Redefining your ambitions can send you off in an entirely new direction.


Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You transform into a private investigator today when unexpected things happen for no apparent reason. However, your current dilemma might even stump Sherlock Holmes, himself. Relax; there are some mysteries in the universe that must remain outside your logical analysis. It’s time to smile in grateful acknowledgment and accept reality’s gift with grace and without question.


Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You feel as if you’re completely in charge today, but this sense of authority is probably more illusion than truth. It’s not that your life is running amok; it’s just that circumstances can unfold without your expressed permission. Unfortunately, you don’t get to approve everything before it happens. Differentiating between what you can and cannot change allows you to focus your efforts where they have the greatest positive impact.


Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You’re not happy that your to-do list seems longer than ever now. Perhaps you need to rethink your workload and consider why you try to do so much. Are your goals in sync with your passions, or is it the recognition and rewards that you seek? Don’t try to avoid your responsibilities; however postponing a few tasks could give you time to reconsider all your options.


Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may be acting as if life is fine today, but you’re probably worried that something isn’t going your way. Although feisty Mars occupies your 1st House of Personality, others can see your concerns lurking just behind your enthusiasm. Instead of denying that you want more stability in your life, acknowledge that your desire for security is as important as your need for freedom. You might not be able to resolve these opposite forces now, but talking about them reduces your stress.


Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

As if your relationships with friends and associates haven’t been complicated enough, a whole new dimension of depth and intrigue can emerge now. You are less apt to go off to have a good time today if it means letting your responsibilities suffer. Although others might think you’re taking your work too seriously, you are quite clear about your current ambitions and the results you seek. Cutting back on your social activities helps you deliver on your professional promises.
