General Horoscope for January 10, 2019
The cosmic plot veers off course today as complicated aspects open portals to other levels of reality. Romantic relationships are entangled with unexpressed assumptions and expectations. Financial pressures highlight uncomfortable dynamics that must be addressed. Although we might find ourselves entrenched in a discussion about a difficult topic, the transformational Scorpio Moon requires us to stick with it until the energy feels resolved.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
You’re not sure which way to turn because there are too many variables in the equation. Perhaps you thought that everything would fall into place, but instead, those things that were already handled yesterday may need additional attention today. The good news is that you have greater freedom of movement now, which is something you like. Nevertheless, if your behavior is too drastic your friends may abandon the ship before you actually need their help. Wield your power lightly for the best results.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
You may be caught up in a net of fantastic illusions today, but they are so convincing that you can’t discern your dreams from reality. Just as you start to make progress and think you have a handle on your world, something might go awry. But it’s hard to tell whether your concern is justified now. Many people would take this uncertainty in stride, but you are not happy when your senses are unreliable. Instead of working yourself into a state of anxiety, rest assured you’ll be back in the real world tomorrow.
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
You are not ready to set aside unrealized personal goals in order to concentrate on growing responsibilities. But you’re getting tired of fighting against the inevitable, especially if others are expecting you to show up and do your fair share of the work. Fortunately, you can turn this into a win-win situation once you realize that you don’t have to shut down your fantasy world to be a success in the real world. Meeting your obligations gives you a foundation from which to grow into the person of your dreams.
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
You could be fighting an uphill battle today as you try to keep your attention on the present moment. But each time you settle into a relaxing state of mind, you drift off into the future where your dreams have already come true. Ironically, you have more potential than ever to achieve the success you imagine, but it requires you to put in a one-hundred-and-ten percent effort on whatever you’re doing now. You must decide if you will be satisfied living in your fantasies or if you want to manifest them in your real life. Anything is possible once you realize that the choice is yours.
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
You might feel stuck in a routine that is limiting your true expression of happiness. Although there may be many reasons to keep you in your present situation, you’re not as trapped as you think. You have a choice to make today that will influence your future. You can resign yourself to your fate, suppress your frustration, grit your teeth and get back to work. Or, you can joyfully fulfill your commitments while imagining your perfect life and all the steps required to make it happen. You’re not restrained by your circumstances, only by your thoughts.
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
You are torn between being the practical person others think you are or shocking your friends with your wildest dreams. You long to live a life where you can show up as you are, rather than as you’re supposed to be. Nevertheless, there is a vast gulf between your inner and outer worlds now. Fortunately, your adaptable nature allows you to keep one foot in each of them. Don’t worry about bridging the gap yet; your chance to do that will come. It may take a while to see progress, but your future self will thank you for feeding your dreams with the attention they deserve.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
You may appear to be supportive as ever to those around you. You can put on a happy face and move through your day without stirring any suspicion that something is awry. Meanwhile, you are fed up with others who aren’t as nice to you as you are to them. Instead of amplifying your unexpressed annoyance or anger, honor your inner voice. Explore your desires for a more balanced life and paint mental pictures of what that might look like. Harboring your fantasies is not an escape. Instead, you are setting the stage for the next act in your play.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
You could be so attuned to your emotions today that they flow into your environment without having to say a word. Those close to you will probably know what you are feeling, but just in case they are in denial, you tell them in no uncertain terms. You’re not one to sugarcoat your message; for you, it’s either all or nothing. Nevertheless, speaking your piece while being kind doesn’t cost anything extra, plus it improves your chances of resolving an existing problem and getting what you want. Linda Poindexter wrote, “Never mince words, for everyone deserves the whole truth.”
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Your creativity might not be obvious to anyone else today, but that’s fine with you. You’re not seeking attention now because you have important goals to focus on. Your innovative approach to tasks as mundane as finances will probably meet resistance and you don’t want to waste time defending your strategy. Your unorthodox ideas confuse others and their advice won’t be constructive. Plus, it’s better to show your work once it’s further along. J.R.R. Tolkien wrote, “Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes.”
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
The weight of the recent cosmic shift may finally be dawning on you. Your drive to make an impact on your world is not just a fleeting thought. Your desire to reexamine your goals, establish priorities and achieve success is part of the new you. But today might bring you a very short holiday that encourages you to temporarily set aside your real-world ambitions. Cut the ties to rational thought. Do something just for the fun of it. Ultimately, a brief escape now is not wasted energy. Jaime Lyn Beatty wrote, “Jobs fill your pocket, adventures fill your soul.”
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
You are not one to be trifled with at work today. In fact, if someone gets on your case now, they might wish they never disturbed the hornet’s nest. Unfortunately, you may not possess as much self-control as you wish, especially if a sensitive button is pushed. It doesn’t matter if the offender is a friend or your boss; your emotional rant will send them packing. Thankfully, there is a comfortable halfway point if you are cognizant of your feelings. Your response doesn’t need to be an all-or-nothing one. Gandhi said, “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
You are at home in the cosmos today while the planets draw your attention to your all-too-familiar dream world. Fortunately, you have little problem loosening your ties to logic as you drift through the distant reaches of inner-galactic space. Your imagination is the source of your creative power, and this is a chance to recharge your batteries. Don’t stop to explain your process to others now unless you can do it in a few words. The less distracted you are from your visit to the magical realms, the more inspired you will be upon your return.
