Your Daily Horoscope for Tuesday, January 29
By Kelli Fox
March 21- April 19
You’re in touch with your introspective side, but not in a moody or downhearted way. No, you’re actually feeling quite aware, in tune with the world and excited about the possibilities that today brings. Take a look inside your heart, and you’ll see that you know just what to do during this charmed period. Remember, you’re as timely and adroit as ever, and multi-tasking is a particular skill now. Use it well: Focus on a project or goal that really means something to you.
April 20-May 20
Your natural response to tension in the air is to batten down the hatches and get ready for a storm. But today, be aware that rash, heavy-handed behaviour won’t make you any friends. It’ll be a lot better if you can quell your anxieties and try for a lighter touch with your friends, family, and colleagues. Taurus, ground yourself with something soothing: a bubble bath, maybe, or a walk in the park with a friend or pet.
May 21-June 21
Your mind is full of all kinds of possibilities. You’re familiar with the options — how are you ever going to choose? Don’t worry — it’s OK to take a day to explore them. You’ll make the right decision, as long as you hold off on making any promises until you’re really clear on things. For now, enjoy that feeling of wonderment that borders on confusion. At the moment, there’s no need to know the answers — it’s still a little too soon to be certain. Just explore the questions.
June 22-July 22
Today, you’re nostalgic and melancholy. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could travel back to a point in your life that felt simpler? Actually, no. Aside from the fact that time travel doesn’t exist, stagnation and regression aren’t nearly as appealing as they might seem. This mood you’re in will pass soon, thank goodness! Instead of avoiding all new and odd influences, make an effort to connect with others and with your own inner calm.
July 23-August 22
You have an open mind and a gregarious style, and your best qualities — courage, warmth, generosity — are on full display today. This is no time to go it alone, so use your friendly, charming personality to get other people involved in the cause of your choice. Surprise, surprise — others care about the same goals and projects you do! And it’s easy to integrate friends and allies into your efforts. Forming a strong team will help get things off the ground and running smoothly.
August 23-September 22
Satire feels virtuous today. You see yourself as a champion of the weak and oppressed. You’re using your sharp insights to let some hot air out of those who dare to fly their balloons too high. Yes, it’s easy to criticise when you feel morally superior. But think about your audience. Are they laughing at you, too? Are you more of a clown than a critic? With so many different perspectives, the same joke isn’t always funny for the same reasons. Take it in stride instead of feeling insulted.
September 23-October 22
Seek what you know you can find, instead of reaching for the stars. Connect and merge with those who’ll accept you, rather than storming the gates of places where you’d never fit in. Is it really OK to rely so much on those moments of ecstasy, discovery and bonding? You’d hate to turn into just another experience junkie, because those people are like perpetual tourists, always looking and never satisfied. Climb outside of yourself to get a better view of who you are and why you desire what you do. Find kindred spirits today.
October 23 – November 22
Now isn’t the time to be crafty or manipulative, no matter how sorely you might be tempted. Go for cautious optimism and sensible choices instead – in the long run, they’ll get you a lot closer to your goals. You’ll even notice minor benefits in the next day or two. And really, do you need everything all at once? You have enough of a sense of self-preservation to wait it out — just trust that you’ll get what’s coming to you. The universe will take care of you, especially if you return the favour with patience, honesty, and humility.
November 23-December 20
It’s hard not to flirt today. You want to be part of everything, whether it’s to satisfy some driving passion or just have a little taste. If you’re the life of the party, it’s because you’re wise and introspective, not because you look like an air-head. Well, there is a lively part of you. But whatever social skills you deploy, whatever your angle of approach, it will be up to others how involved they’ll let you be. Don’t take rejection personally. There has to be someone else just as wise who still wants you around.
December 21-January 19
You’ve always been solid at your core, and that’s what people are attracted to. Keep that in mind now, because though you’re feeling energetic and ambitious, this may not be the time to let that energy loose on the world. Excessive vitality could all too easily undercut that solid foundation of yours. At the moment, people just want to know you’re dependable — they’re not looking for you to be vibrant and enthusiastic. Similarly, instead of striking out in new directions, observe your ties with the past today. They’ll help define your future.
January 20-February 18
Maybe you have a couple of secrets that are slowly, sweetly ripening. Maybe a private flash of insight is putting that grin on your face. Maybe the scope of a project just ballooned, driving your future profits into the stratosphere. Whatever’s going on inside your head, keep it under your hat for today. Live your life, greet your neighbours, hang with your friends. They’ll know something is ready to pop, but your carefree attitude will drive them crazy. You like having your audience on the edge of their seats. Nothing is more powerful.
February 19-March 20
If going with the flow means going for the gold, you could easily strike it rich. There is a catch, however. In this case, you may have to pay a price if you can’t navigate carefully. But that’s just the part you can see. Don’t get too sloppy with all the undercurrents surging through your experience. You might overflow your boundaries today, flooding other people’s acreage with something too rich and extreme for them to handle. Clouding these waters won’t help anyone see the light. And not much can grow without light.
