For Friday, Jan. 9:
Your actions this year have much more impact than anticipated. Your choice of direction needs to remain strong; otherwise, you easily could be distracted. If you are single, you can kiss away that status if you so choose. f you are attached, your sweetie becomes more easygoing and expresses more understanding. Cancer has similar issues but a very different approach.
