Daily Horoscope (January 17 2017)

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’re having a distressing tendency towards stress and burnout, and you may be feeling like you can’t cope with one more setback. That perception is wrong, but you could use a little re-focusing. Put your energy to good use today, and a lot can be accomplished. Otherwise, there could be some problems — particularly when dealing with other people’s money. A family member may accuse you of being selfish, but it’s best not to start a fuss. And whatever you do, don’t complain to another family member, no matter how sympathetic they seem.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Personal relationships will be on your mind today, when either you or a loved one is feeling particularly sensitive and perhaps a bit put-upon. Choose your words carefully, or there could be some upset caused by miscommunication. You may even be tearfully accused of being selfish or cold, an accusation which cuts you to the quick because it may be true. Plan for the outcome you require. If you are married or in a committed relationship, this may be a day when your jealous intensity rises to the forefront; take care that you don’t do any irreparable damage.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today’s energy revolves around work and being of service to others. This is not your usual mode, but you’re feeling kindly and sweet so you’ll go along. A bonus: there is also romance in the air, so it’s best to express how you really feel. Hasn’t there been someone intriguing you from afar, or perhaps from pretty darned close? This person may also be casting loving looks on you, so it’s time to get cracking. Doing research or learning about a topic which never before caught your attention is favored today.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancerians will find this to be a good day for fun and creativity and perhaps for some delicious romance, too — get ready. Those involved with sales and marketing will get good responses from campaigns and advertising, while all Cancers will have a day in which even the most complicated or difficult message is easily delivered. If you are married or in a committed relationship, either you or your partner may be feeling uncomfortably possessive, which is creating many problems. Try to keep your head down and move on, staying where you are will do no one good.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There may be a few problems around the home today — even heated debate. Family members or perhaps your partner seem quite snippy right now and you just can’t seem to get along. You may be having an uncontrollable urge to let your feelings out, even those which would truly be non-productive. Stopping yourself before you speak is the best plan, but you might not be able to hold back Your energy may not be as high as it should be right now, so just remember that tomorrow is another day.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s a good day for recognition and appreciation, a day when others will be giving you enough compliments to turn your head. Are you wearing new clothes or is it just that you seem to have a new confidence and allure? Romance is in the air, and you will be able to communicate your feelings easily. Have fun with someone you love tonight, it’s sure to be a delightful evening full of laughter and glee. You have an urge to take up a new field of study or perhaps to work towards changing or directing your career. This is definitely the right way to go.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may feel like not sharing your personal feelings with others today, and you may be inclined to be just a tad stingy with what you own. What’s yours is yours, and these feelings may run deep. Be wary of making major purchases, as your financial acumen is not what it usually is. In fact, you may be a little off in general, with friends, family and co-workers remarking on your lack of energy and enthusiasm. This influence will soon pass but while it plagues your life you may feel like everything’s just a bit too difficult for you. In particular, co-workers may be draining you at this time.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your magic streak continues today. Friends and strangers alike hang onto your every word as if it were a movie star’s autograph, and you’re feeling tickled pink with all the admiration. Strangers stop to smile at you on the street, even your parents regard you with respect and kindness today. If you ever wanted to forge yourself a new identity, this would be the day. In fact, it may be fun for you to try on a new personality for the afternoon: go somewhere you don’t usually go, perhaps to see a movie you’ve read about or to a restaurant with exotic food. You’re in for an exciting evening!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Accepting necessary limitations or restrictions can enable you to gain remarkable inner strength and determination today, when you may be feeling as if your job is a bit of a trial. Pesky details and irritating, onerous tasks will probably land on your plate at this time. Try to be as unbiased as possible when evaluating your responsibilities; even work which seems un-glamorous may offer rewards you hadn’t realized before. Besides, someone in a higher-up position is watching carefully to see how you handle setbacks.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Today you will realize what a great friend your partner really is to you as he or she tenderly listens and reassures you about some problem you’ve been facing recently. If you don’t have a partner, then you may find that a friend has a secret to share. With all the romance in the air that secret’s likely to be delicious gossip — make sure you don’t let out what you already know! Someone is counting on you to watch after their best interests; if you’re not feeling particularly charitable it may be the kindest thing to ask this person to go elsewhere for help.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A historical event reminds you that time marches on and no one is getting younger. This event may be a birthday, an anniversary or some other kind of commemoration, and you’re left feeling nostalgic and reflecting on the path your life has taken. Are you pleased with what you see? It remains up to you to make your life what you wish it to be. You remind yourself of an actor who has forgotten her lines. Do something today that makes you feel secure, as you may be faltering a bit in the face of change.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There may be some issues for you today around shared resources, though whether the trouble will strike at work, at home or in the community is hard to say. Someone with whom you’d like to preserve a close working relationship may be accusing you of taking more than your fair share of resources, or perhaps of glory. Though this accusation is probably unfounded it’s best that you give in gracefully to this person’s demands to prevent further scuffles. You may be feeling especially receptive to other peopleÕs emotions — try to protect yourself in some way.
