Daily Horoscope – Monday January 2, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The more perspective you get, the more you realize that you’d rather be inside than out. This could be in terms of your environment, a relationship, or the thoughts in your head. Long range planning steals the moment’s immediacy, so leave some things left untouched until they get swept up in a situation. Your perseverance will allow you to be quick on your toes if the mood strikes, and the scenario requires you to do so. The things that you value are a little too intense to confront right now, so let them slide, but not too far.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Heads turn as you pass through a public place and they are looking your way. Everyone finds you fascinating and attractive, even those who never seemed to care. You’ll be opening eyes right and left and leaving a lasting legacy before the day is done. You should be able to get what you want just by crooking your finger. You’ll find that more people than you realize can relate to your intense energy. Exude it and revel in the results it brings you. Take a risk with romance.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You are frozen in a quandary with activity and passivity on either side. There is just as much to be gained by going out and exploring as there is to sitting still and letting the world come to you. They just lead to varying ultimate experiences. Know that you may bring a different perspective to the table than if you wait for it to be served up on a platter. Mystery is where you find it. Half the fun is not quite knowing where to look. The nooks, crannies, and corners may hold secrets that can only be told in hushed voices.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You are likely to be at the center of any group’s attention. It may feel as if the whole solar system is using you as their fulcrum. It makes for a lot of rotations and circles for you to control and observe. If you are in search of knowledge, your questions are sure to be answered. It is a quest that may bring you to the ends of the earth and back in a way that was once never thought possible. Whatever you seek, your chances of getting it are excellent. Take the time to wish on a shooting star and to identify a constellation of choice.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Public curiosity feels a little hostile right now. There may be some unwanted meddling into your business or the depths of your mind. Know that there are some who might feel that you deserve whatever misfortune befalls you. Allow these people their feelings, but realize that such feelings are likely to arise slightly out of envy. Although things may be in black and white, the grays could become the dominating colors, and copies will not reveal quite the same image. Don’t make any sudden moves, as they may set off unanticipated reactions. Trust in systems to keep you safe.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are the master of finding practical solutions. Academic extarordinaire, guru of the logical process, and critical thinking superstar are all titles that would describe you at the moment. Mastering an area is everything that you predicted it might be. Enjoy every moment. Allow some creativity to at least enter the lines in your world. Problems seem obvious to you even though they may have others completely stumped. Reward yourself with something really unusual for dinner, even if it is the choice of the company you keep.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your dealings with others may be a little uneasy, but everyone benefits from the relationship. Look closely at all of the elements that have been presented and the few that you may be able to sense lie beneath the surface. There is a certain beauty as a deal makes it’s way through the beginning stages. As long as people respect one another’s differences, the door is still open for personal warmth. Don’t over indulge, though, and force it open. Try to tip generously, whether it’s with money or compliments.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your expectations of someone might blind you to the person that he or she really is on the inside. You may be letting yourself be led by stereotypes that only hold a partial truth. Tune out the music and listen to the words first, before you just start singing the chorus without understanding the meaning. The lyrics are likely to be poetry to your soul. Make up your own harmony that fits them well, and then blend it with the original song from which it came. Know that you can’t lose something that was never yours in the first place.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
The outer world demands your attention and participation for a little while. Do your duty and be a responsible citizen. It may involve bearing some stress on your shoulders, but do what you can to do your best. It’s the least you can do for your community members who are counting on you. Know that the favors will be returned when you find yourself in a similar situation. Rewrite your jokes for polite company or rethink telling them entirely. There is more than one way to get a laugh.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your personal integrity puts you head and shoulders above the crowd. People who are looking for you will be able to pick you out without a problem. Even those you don’t know are likely to end up with you in their sights. Despite miscalculation or failure, you maintain your grace. If you’re not yet in a committed relationship, someone has designs on your heart. They are intricate in their pattern but well defined in their simple focus. Figure out how to piece it all together.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
Your family’s demands on your time may be irritating, but remember that these are the people you love the most. Schedule time for them between all of the appointments of your day. Know that they shouldn’t have to wait until you have a free slot in your planner. They have the ability to put your life in perspective and to trace the history of what makes you who you are. Time spent at home becomes a rich and satisfying experience right before your eyes. Be on your best behavior and expect the same from others.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The wildest suggestion contains the seed of some new truth. Plant it in the sunlight and see what grows. Allow your thoughts to be the fertilizer, and let the weeds live on in order to spice up the garden. You may find something edible that urges you to satiate your appetite for communication and art. Right now you’re a master at finding the meaning in other people’s experiences. Share your ideas with them if they don’t see the bigger picture. Know that if you get too lost in thought, you might miss all the fun.
