CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids, so parents, be vigilant. This is also an exciting day for romance because unexpected flirtations might surprise you and lift your spirits. ("I've still got it in me.") Love at first sight might begin for some of you. Sports events will hold surprises, definitely.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your home routine will be pleasantly interrupted. A phone call or knock on the door or something in the mail might delight you. A family member might have surprising news. Spontaneous get-togethers will make entertaining at home a success. Have food and drink on hand; anything might happen.



Musician Jerry Garcia (1942-1995) shares your birthday. You have a great imagination and yet you are realistic. In fact, many of you are crusaders about a cause. Because of your fervent beliefs, you are often caught up in controversy. This year is wonderfully social for you: a year that will beautifully improve all your relationships.
