General Horoscope for January 11, 2019
Everyone seems quite serious today, and we’re eager to join them if it means we can accomplish our goals. Cerebral Mercury is somber as it enters ambitious Capricorn where it joins Saturn, Pluto, the Sun and Venus. We trade blue sky for maps to guide us and supplies to sustain us while the reality of Capricorn is made apparent. Meanwhile, the passionate Scorpio Moon conjuncts philosophical Jupiter and assertive Mars, giving direction to our ideas.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
No matter what your professional responsibilities require of you now, communication is the key to your success. But you can’t get away with unsubstantiated claims or hollow promises when tangible results are expected. You may temporarily lose your sense of freedom because you won’t have the luxury of allowing your mind to wander. There’s work to be done; figure out the best way to proceed and get started without any fuss or fanfare. Let your success be your noise.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
Someone may offer you the opportunity of a lifetime, but don’t jump at the chance until you do your due diligence. Unfortunately, a false sense of urgency today could lead you to discover that the seafront property you bought was a mosquito-infested swamp. Thankfully, your reality filter is in top-notch shape now, enabling you to see through deceptions, whether or not they are intentional. Stick to what you know, rather than being misled by your dreams. Maya Angelou wrote, “There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.”
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
You have no interest in participating in the same lighthearted conversations that recently filled your idle time. In fact, you may believe there’s a small window of opportunity to work out the details of a financial relationship. You might even worry that your chance to close a deal will disappear before you can finalize it. Whether you are refinancing your home, buying a car or simply consolidating loans, ferret out all the facts before signing on the dotted line. Being well-informed puts you in the strongest negotiating position.
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
Although you are quite comfortable with your position today, your feelings may undermine your argument in an ongoing debate. It’s crucial to confront your opposition with hard data rather than soft opinions. Of course, it’s not wise to ignore your emotions; just don’t use them when presenting your case. Fortunately, there’s an excellent opportunity for meaningful give and take in your discussions. If you can talk about a problem, you can resolve it.
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
Yesterday’s optimism has morphed into today’s realism. You’re less interested in the potential of a situation than in the practicality of it. Rather than imagining all the letters in the alphabet, you’re executing your plan to get from A to B. But don’t let your growing concern about efficiency shut down your dreams. You can concentrate your efforts in the present moment while still harboring fantasies of future adventures. Wake up with determination. Go to bed with satisfaction.
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
You can harness the power of your creativity today through all forms of communication and interpersonal interactions. Ironically, you are most productive now when you’re having fun, but you’re so driven to accomplish something tangible that you don’t want to take the time to play. The solution to this dilemma comes through understanding the relationship between lighthearted wit and profound proclamations. Humor can be a catalyst to start a transformational conversation that changes your life. Lighten up and go deep.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Sometimes you must withdraw from the social noise to attend to your own needs. But this apparent retreat is not about avoiding responsibilities; instead, you’re interested in clarifying your domestic obligations. One reason to reevaluate your commitments to family members is so you can head back into the world, knowing that you have a strong foundation at home. Nevertheless, this process means coming clean in your personal life by clearing the air of secrets. Although you may worry about creating unnecessary drama, you’ll be surprised how open and honest communication actually stomps out the chaos and confusion.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
It’s nearly impossible to rest your weary head today because you’re so busy thinking important thoughts. Your complex mental process is motivated by your desire to make connections between all the different things you’ve learned. Although others may grow annoyed with your probing questions, they don’t necessarily understand how driven you are to collect more information. Finding previously missing links between current events and your past memories could be the sweet reward for all your hard work. Perseverance is your ally when solving a mystery.
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
You may be wrapped up in the facts and figures of financial transactions now. Whether you are determining your budget for a home improvement project, reassessing your daily expenditures, or evaluating the feasibility of a business investment, it all comes down to what resources you possess and how you wish to utilize them for maximum benefit. But your temporary fascination with money is just a symptom of wider concerns as you consider what you want in your life. Clarifying your core values is a necessary step on your way to finding satisfaction.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
You are in a power zone and it’s crucial to make the most of it while it lasts. Although you may be overwhelmed by all the serious issues that are coming to a head, you are fully equipped to handle this complicated moment in your life. You will emerge from this cosmic pressure cooker with flying colors if you utilize your secret weapon of time management. Keep one eye on your calendar and the other on your clock. Make lists, establish priorities, set boundaries, and know that you can do amazing things if you get to work now.
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Your private communication channel to other dimensions is open for business today, allowing your spirit guides, angels and ancestors to speak directly to you. However you frame these dialogues with non-physical beings, you’re the beneficiary of the imparted wisdom. Don’t try to intellectualize the process; refrain from judging the reality of your experience. If you must, just think of it as your inner voice, a product of your imagination. If you still can’t accept this form of help, you can always fall back on the words of Charles Dickens: “A loving heart is the truest wisdom.”
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
So much of your life is intertwined around your social relationships. Your friends and coworkers mean a lot to you, as do their thoughts and opinions. However, you must establish new boundaries if you wish to pursue your personal goals. This is not about withdrawing into a shell; rather, it’s about separating your needs from everyone else’s, so you can discern what’s most important to you. Reconsidering priorities now determines your trajectory into the future. You can only make good choices if you know what you want rather than what others expect. Ram Dass said, “I’ve been should upon long enough.”
