Wish on a Shooting Star

The debris from an extinct comet provides opportunities to wish on a falling meteor of the Quadrantid meteor shower. Though the gibbous moon isn’t cooperating and the visibility of the shower is low, don’t let that stop you. A trine of Mars and Jupiter agrees to grant your wishes anyhow. So go forward with wishing as if you just saw a shooting star.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s strange when you don’t get the response you were looking for. It means something’s a little off. You’ll be inspired to look at your own motivation. Does it hold up? Is it who you really want to be?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Even though your body seems to be taking practical action, your mind is off on a quixotic adventure. Remarkably, you’re getting so much done in spite of this disconnect.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Be careful whom you confide in, especially about your recent victory. Some people are so interested in their own fears and preoccupations that they’ll have a hard time relating to your success story.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You wouldn’t presume to tell another person what he or she should go after in life, and by the same token, you don’t have to listen to anyone who thinks they know better what you should do.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People are always telling you to slow down, but they don’t realize that you have to move at your current speed in order to get it all done. You’ll go to bed thinking about what you might cut from the schedule.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Love has a way of catapulting people out of their usual personality and into a new attitude. You could experience this change to some degree today as your fondness for someone grows.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). With the moon in your sign, you have an even stronger sense of balance than usual. Pleasure, contentment and connection are more important to your daily life right now than any other goal. Make yourself happy.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). One hipster T-shirt suggested, “If you can’t be a good example, be a warning.” Today, you won’t have to choose. Your bad behavior has unexpectedly positive results, so you’ll fit into both categories at once.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you’re genuinely excited to see your loved ones, you show your enthusiasm as they walk into the room. When you’re not, there’s something wrong. You and yours deserve to be properly acknowledged.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Neither time nor money is available to you in infinite quantities, but you’ll do clever things with the resources you have. Bonus: This will impress someone who will be helpful to you at a future date.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Daily living is not an exact science. You’ll do your best. Some will say you prioritized unfairly or illogically. How would they know? Let enthusiasm and curiosity be your guides.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s a huge difference between being around and being present. The eye contact, physical affection and attention you give loved ones are the keys to happy relationships.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 4). You’re changing. You’ll lean into the change, enjoying the process and excitedly anticipating who you’ll be next. This month brings enchanting company. In February, you’ll make something new of old history. Your creation takes on a life of its own in March. May and August are the most lucrative months. You’ll travel in June. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 24, 38 and 13.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Can you trust and share openly? If you’re afraid to do so, alterations must be made. TAURUS: As you add up the facts and feelings, the equation only gets more complex. Good thing you don’t have to solve it in a day.  GEMINI: Sometimes wanting to be close is enough. CANCER: Consider: What is the “we” of a relationship? Is it more one “I” than the other? LEO: You understand the importance of body language, and people notice you when you walk into a room. VIRGO: You put people at ease because you know how to communicate your needs. LIBRA: Everyone wants to be with a person who knows how to have and be fun. That’s you. SCORPIO: Relationships will unfold unexpectedly, and you’ll roll with the new developments. SAGITTARIUS: Because of your spontaneity, you are an adventure magnet. CAPRICORN: You make an assertive and self-sufficient partner, and that’s so attractive. AQUARIUS: As you cultivate your taste by trying new things, your unique energy emerges. PISCES: As much as you’d like to know exactly where you stand with someone, the fact is that it’s not an exact location you can mark with an “X.”

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Libra moon loves being in love, and so do Libra and Capricorn these days. As the moon reflects the Capricorn sun, amorous developments happen innocently enough. It’s likely that these two work together or must solve some other kind of real-world problem as a team. The mutual respect they share and their obvious demonstration of it will make the relationship strong.
