If Your Birthday is Jan. 16
(The Day of Fulfillment) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
The human imagination is a wonderful device. Just now, you seem more easily able to understand situations and feelings, and to create new and beautiful worlds in your mind. Only you can know the most congenial way to manifest these gifts; that’s entirely up to you. Consider this an encouragement to do so.
Written in the Planets
The activity in Pisces today would seem to suggest a move toward greater empathy or amicability. Be gentle, and remember that we don’t always know the stories of those we meet. The ability to brighten other people’s lives is one of the great joys of being on this planet, and often all that takes is a smile, a kind word or a benevolent deed. Watch out for an opportunity — and by all means allow yourself to feel the attendant pleasure from taking it up.
