For Thursday, Jan. 21:
This year, you are able to break past restrictions. You often become energized after a conversation with a key associate or partner. You might not always see eye to eye. In fact, you might actually like the difference of opinion. If you are single, you often find people you date quite challenging. If you are attached, the two of you need to juggle your different concerns, each taking over what is critical to his or her well-being. Aries always has a wild idea or two.
