Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013: This year you merge innovative thinking and efficiency. This powerful combination sometimes gets stunning reactions, but for the most part, it encourages creativity within your immediate circle.

If you are attached, take up a new hobby with your significant other in order to reduce stress. You will become a happier couple as a result. LIBRA might be charming, but he or she does not think outside of the box.
