Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013: This year you often question your direction and energy. You have what it takes; you are just being challenged. Your creativity soars for the most part, except at key moments. Learn to defer to others. If you are single, your desirability summons many potential lovers. You will have choices to make. If you are attached, you do a lot of kissing and making up this year. Respect each other, and don’t quarrel over your differences. TAURUS’ earthiness appeals to you.
