Your Daily Horoscopes for January 13th

We seek new ways to fulfill our obligations today without feeling tied down by them. Cerebral Mercury’s visit to ingenious Aquarius provides ample mental stimulation and its creative alignment to responsible Saturn helps us see things from a new perspective. Meanwhile, the fickle Gemini Moon aspects both Mercury and Saturn, adding a sense of urgency to the situation. The tension eases when the Moon shifts into nurturing Cancer at 7:24 pm EST.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Even if you have been successfully holding it all together, your schedule might feel as if it could fall apart today. Luckily, this isn’t as chaotic as it sounds, for you are invigorated by the buzz of activity all around you. Respond to whatever unfolds with a high level of enthusiasm, for you may not be able to tell what’s most important until after the fact. In the meantime, keep your options open and enjoy the ride.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might want to tie up loose ends today, but whatever isn’t completed may not get finished for a few more days. Nevertheless, don’t give up. Your current attitude matters more than anything, so keep your attention on your goals even if they seem to be temporarily slipping away. Maintaining your optimism is key to establishing the foundation you need. Remember, the momentum you are building now fuels the next round of hard work.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may feel as if you cannot keep up with your own thoughts as the Moon continues to move through your sign today. Nevertheless, your willingness to talk about your ideas could prevent you from being overwhelmed. Remind yourself throughout the day to open your heart so you can hear the emotions behind what others are saying. Engaging in meaningful dialogue will help you gain a healthy perspective so you can sort out what matters the most in your life.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

A secret needs to come out into the open today, so you can integrate this information into your current plan. You might have big ideas about how you want to change the dynamics of a relationship, but may have a hard time knowing how to do it until you have all the facts. Carefully asking the right questions now helps you discover what you need to know. Nevertheless, remain open to surprises and keep your sense of humor close at hand.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Be wary of carefree friends who lure you into their dreams. In other words, fulfill your obligations and attend to your own plans for the future before going off in search of good times. A little self-indulgence sounds like innocent fun, making it tough to decline the invitation to play. Just remember that you probably won’t feel so proud later if you abandon your commitments for the pursuit of pleasure. Oddly enough, taking care of business brings more satisfaction in the long run.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You are feeling stressed as you attempt to balance your responsibilities at work with your own career objectives. You want to be more responsive to the needs of your coworkers, but it may not be appropriate to step over certain formal boundaries. Even if there are big things happening in your private life, keep them to yourself for a while longer as you concentrate your efforts on your professional world. Don’t veer off track now when you are making so much progress.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Just when you thought you could stop and catch your breath, the pace picks up again. You might become so excited about all the possibilities today that it’s hard to calm your nerves. You have too much to share and it’s challenging to shut it off once you’ve started the conversation. As important as it is to get your feelings out in the open, don’t say anything you may regret down the road. A dash of self-restraint saves the day.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Others may perceive you as more lighthearted than usual. However, they could believe that you’re trying to evade a sensitive issue — and maybe you are — but you are doing it for a good reason. Chances are that you’re not in denial; you are just waiting for the best time to broach the subject. Trust your instincts to know when the moment is right. In the meantime, you might as well spread some cheer along the way.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your optimism might get the best of you today, for others won’t take you very seriously if you gloss over an important issue. It’s not that your positive thinking is problematic; it’s usually quite motivational. However, you could miss a crucial piece of information now that creates trouble and exposes sloppy thinking. Don’t make matters worse by pretending that you have all the answers. Be courageous and take responsibility for your actions.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You can say all the right words today, but you may be disconnected from your true emotions. Uncharacteristically, your heart isn’t leading the way now; your head is temporarily in charge. But don’t be misled into believing you have to make a choice; it isn’t about one versus the other. Your current journey is all about creating a workable balance between your personal aspirations and your career ambitions

Mercury in Capricorn

Mercury in Capricorn

Forge ahead with those New Year’s resolutions!

Cerebral Mercury’s move into responsible Capricorn on Christmas Eve — December 24, 2013 — kicks off an excellent time for thinking rationally and communicating more clearly.

This will be a great time to get our thoughts back in order and find the motivation needed to keep moving forward on those New Year’s resolutions.

Mercury, the planet of communication and mental activity, keeps us more focused on being practical when it’s in earthy Capricorn. Organization is important here, so that we can put all the pieces together and look at the big picture. Once we do that, we can turn our goals into reality!

Mercury in Capricorn is acutely aware of everyone’s place, which means that conversation may become more about who’s in charge than how to get things done. Sensitivity to communication and control is strong during this period. Casual remarks are not associated with this placement — if you’re going to say something, you better have a good reason.

We all see reality for what it is during this time, but we’re also prone to pessimism. It’s important to keep in mind that not everything is black-and-white, and open yourself to seeing the shades of grey. And remember, a half-empty glass is still half full.
