horoscoPes JAnuAry 2015 Aries March 20 - April 20 A temporary change in routine gives you the diversion you’ve been craving. Take time to consider the changes you’d like to make in your life. A Pisces brings promising news this month. A Leo’s tale of woe provides food for thought. Soften your approach with Libra. Before you pass judgment on others, take a good look at yourself. Remember, everyone has his or her strengths and weaknesses — even you — and everyone’s are different. Watch your comments this month or something you say could offend a close friend. An unexpected turn of events early in the month disrupts long-stand- ing plans. Although this may be frustrating, it will be something you have to do. Use exercise as a way to stave off frustrations. A Libra friend offers words of encouragement. Use any free time to promote self-awareness. Don’t sell yourself short when it comes to business. Know your val- ue and be sure to present it in a beautifully wrapped package — you owe it to yourself. Discipline is the key to reaching fitness goals. A Leo has an unexpected surprise later in the month. A love relation- ship blossoms. Leos tend to get what they want more easily than most other mem- bers of the zodiac. Your charms are usually hard to resist — usually, but not this month. Forget about using manipulative tricks and try a down-to-Earth approach, especially if you’re dealing with Scorpio. You may have to choose between helping a friend and helping your- self. Unless you’re one of the more innovative Virgos out there, you probably won’t find a reasonable compromise. At work, make use of downtime in a productive way. Plan for busier times ahead. Tormented by yet another difficult decision? Instead of weighing the pros and cons over and over again, follow your heart. It’s where you’ll end up anyway, so why waste time? Just a few kind words will do wonders for a down-in-the-dumps friend. Make the effort, but be careful of what you say. Overstepping your bounds in a friendship could lead to hard feelings. Be aware of what you say and how you say it. An old friend comes to you for support on a personal matter. Try to put yourself in his or her place before offering advice. Health-related problems need to be addressed. Quality time with your partner helps ease recent tensions. A special romantic effort goes a very long way. Young children play a big role later in the month. A little Leo may do something to win your heart. A Libra’s good news gives you something to smile about. Don’t be afraid to swallow your pride if it means saving a valuable relationship. You’ll be glad you did. Looking for a new job? If so, this could be an especially lucky month. Keep your eyes open for a new opportunity. Remember, appearances can be deceiving. Jumping to conclusions before you know all the facts will steer you in a totally wrong direction. Make an effort to look at the big picture. An old flame will be the focus of your thoughts mid-month. Use past mistakes to create a brighter romantic future. A break comes later in the month. Speak up, Capricorn, or you’ll never get what you want. You can’t expect others to read your mind: Be more assertive. This month an unpleasant re - minder of your past makes you happy for what you have today. A Gemini friend helps put things into perspective.
