Daily Horoscope: Thursday, Jan 28.
It may seem as if Lady Luck has deserted you but it isn’t true. If you ask the universe for assistance over the next 48 hours the universe will surely give it to you, provided of course that it’s what you need and what you deserve.
As the Sun leaves your sign today you should find it easier to leave behind a number of things that have become a drain on your time and your energy. Your main goal now must be to conserve your precious resources, especially your cash!
You won’t be able to impose your beliefs on other people over the next few days, so don’t waste time trying. It’s okay to have strong convictions but share them only with like-minded people – that way you won’t get into so many fights!
Recent aspects have allowed you to affirm yourself at work and, in a more general way, cement some aspects of your personality. Now you will be consolidating things. It's as if you've conceived of a product, created it, and are now finally ready to put it on the market. If this is in fact the case, Gemini, the current period corresponds to incoming money - and profits.
Don't get discouraged by other people's failures today, Cancer. There may be signs that warn you of potential roadblocks ahead, but this doesn't mean that you should turn your car around or give up on your goal. Perhaps you only need to slow down the pace or select a new route. Either way, you have the perseverance and inner drive to accomplish any task you undertake.
This is the ideal time to begin a project you have been thinking about for ages. You know it could be a huge success but it won’t happen as if by magic, so get your act together and get started on it today – and work on it every day.
Sometimes the best way to deal with an emotional problem is to ignore it completely and that is what you must do this weekend. The lunar eclipse in your sign means you need to rise above negative feelings and focus on positive outcomes.
It may seem to some that the world is going to hell in a handcart but you can choose not to look at it that way. Keep smiling and keep believing that things will get better, and chances are they will very soon, for you at least.
Try not to be influenced by things that you do not have the power to change. The message of the stars for you today is that you must channel your energy into areas where you can shape the outcome. Always be positive in your thinking.
You may find yourself staring at a blank page for what seems like hours on end while you try to get down on paper what you really want to say, Libra. Perhaps your motivation is flagging. Your mind is soaring in the clouds today and it may be hard for it to keep on task. However, once you start the act of writing or whatever job you need to finish, things seem to flow to completion on their own.
It may seem to others that you’ve been lucky and that the good things coming your way are not deserved, but that is not the full story. What goes around always comes around eventually, so you must have done something at some time to deserve it.
The solution to a problem you have been facing is really quite simple, so why are you having such a hard time seeing it? Most likely it’s because you are still looking at the world the way you want it to be, rather than the way it is.
Your thinking is clear and sharp, Sagittarius, and your mental awareness keen. You should use it to head toward new, forward-thinking projects. Don't waste your time beating around the bush. Cut right to the heart of the issue. You'll easily outwit your opponents in a game of Scrabble or chess. Engage in activities that exercise your brain. There's no reason for you to doubt yourself today.
Some people complain that life is too hard but you know that the more you have to strive for something the more valuable it is. Devote yourself body and soul to what you are working on today – the results will be more than worth it.
Because you don’t like to refuse doing favors for friends and family members you may find that most of your time today is taken up with doing things for other people. That’s OK, but make up for it over the weekend by doing something for yourself.
You might want to put on your suit of armor as soon as you wake up, Aquarius. An all-out battle is raging out there, and it could seem like everyone has picked you as the main target. Be careful about escalating an issue even more by becoming defensive without first understanding the full scope of the matter. It could be that everything is coming to a head simply because of one slight misunderstanding.
Keep what you hear to yourself today, especially if it is something that might endanger the status quo. There is a time to rock the boat but the planets indicate that time is not yet, so keep thinking and keep planning – and keep quiet.
What happens today should be seen as a welcome challenge rather than as an unwanted setback. Everything that happens in your life – even the “bad” things – is a cosmic gift to help you grow spiritually. Don’t curse fate, embrace it instead.
