Daily horoscopes: January 17, 2019


(March 20 – April 19):

Not the day to trust your reliable sources. Either they’re too enamored of a situation or they haven’t researched matters thoroughly. You’re on your own with this one.


(April 20 – May 20):

Things aren’t in the bag. In fact there’s a very large cat that’s struggling to get out.


(May 21 – June 20):

You may not have scored a definitive victory, but it’s a victory nonetheless. Be happy with what you get.


(June 21 – July 21):

You’re giving a rival or competitor too much credit. The only person s/he seems to have fooled is you.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

A manufactured excuse only works if you’re buying. Be more skeptical of a certain someone’s story. You’ll see that it’s barely held together by spit and glue.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Your hand isn’t being forced. People are just pressing you for an answer. They need time pursue another candidate if you’re not interested.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

People accuse you of vacillating but that’s only because you don’t like the choices on offer. Send them back. You can do better.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

You always want to be suspicious of conversations where someone says you agreed to something you don’t remember agreeing to. Your memory isn’t faulty. This person’s relationship to the truth is.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

It feels like you’re working twice as hard for half the results. At least you’re getting something for it. There are people working three times as much for less.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

It’s strange to have wrestled with a moral dilemma for weeks only to see it resolved instantly on a technicality. Sometimes it pays to read the fine print.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

It’s exhausting bringing people up to your level but it beats sinking to theirs.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

You won’t like being held to a pledge or promise, but you were the one who made it in the first place. You’d do the same if positions were reversed.
