Daily horoscopes: January 29, 2016


(March 20 – April 19):

Stop trying to prove yourself to people who know what you can do. You need to master your situation, not pander to it.


(April 20 – May 20):

Don’t waste your breath reasoning with a dimwit at work. The lights may be on but it’s clear that nobody’s home.


(May 21 – June 20):

You prayed for the day when things would be made right again. Brace yourself because that day is swiftly approaching.


(June 21 – July 21):

It’s time to take off the kid gloves because a situation at work has vexed you for far too long. Assert yourself and the opposition will fold like a cheap tent.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Your fixation on an adversary’s progress is blinding you to your own abilities. Put more stock in what you do and you’ll see efforts pay off.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Quitting in a huff is never a good idea. Your only chance of turning the tables is to stay in the game. Like the lottery, you have to be in it to win.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

You hoped steering clear of a controversy would preserve neutrality. Unfortunately it has the opposite effect. Might as well speak your mind.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Gossip can serve a positive function – like when you hear through the grapevine about a matter you presumed was settled. It wasn’t, so settle it.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Just when you wrote off a client as a loser you learn that this person’s a goldmine. It’s never too late to backpedal – and fast!


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

A boss or client continues to make life difficult but it looks like you’re holding up and even learning to adapt. There could be a plus side to this after all.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You won’t get everything you want. You may not even get your fair share. But don’t worry because what you walk away with will be all that you need.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Don’t let difficulties in a partner’s life get to you – especially when this person has a better handle on things than you think.
