For Saturday, Jan. 22
Those with birthdays today: Often you need to slow down, as you get revved up so easily. Your mind works overtime, causing you to be exhausted or to brainstorm till the wee hours. Keep a notebook handy for ideas. You won't forget them, and you can relax more. Travel, research and detachment all play roles in your life next year. Your job performance will be acknowledged later in the year, if not immediately. If you are single, someone quite unique will drift into your life. Learn to see his or her world. You might be surprised how much you like it. If you are attached, plan a long-distance trip and/or take a workshop together. Accept each other. CANCER could suffocate you.
