TODAY: Current influences may tempt you to take steps that in hindsight, glorious hindsight (later this weekend?), will likely be neither what the situation wanted nor what any self-respecting doctor would have ordered. That said, it's only fair to add that it could strain your powers of persuasion to successfully talk yourself or somebody else out of i.e. taking the car for a little spin on the black ice to see how the new snow tires handle.
YOUR BIRTHDAY: Colleagues may be liberal with their guidance and counsel regarding an assortment of matters this year. But ... Their willingness to dispense direction doesn't necessarily mean that they get you and understand what you're trying to accomplish. So endeavor to keep this concept in the forefront of your mind as you listen, sift and decide what's best for you, your situation, your growth and advancement, etc.

CEO Mars and Pluto may be whispering sweet nothings in your ear, telling you it's okay to say you had to take your kid to the ER or your car wouldn't start. However, what they're failing to mention is that within fairly short order someone who knows that you don't have a kid - or a car, come to that - is likely to emerge.
TaurusThursday, January 29, 2015
On the one hand: There is something powerful about being able to dazzle with brilliance or baffle with b.s. and have people actually pay attention to your views, opinions and strategies, irrespective of your command of the facts. On the other hand: This only works for the length of time that you can maintain the façade.
GeminiThursday, January 29, 2015
Let others do what they're going to do - without drawing attention to where they may have done some fuzzy math, miscalculated, or otherwise been off the mark. Seriously, your best strategy is to go for the old "give 'em enough rope and see what happens" rather than bailing them out before they've, er, learned something.
CancerThursday, January 29, 2015
If you feel like doing something mildly uncharacteristic (and perhaps atypically audacious) on the career, creative or relationship front, go ahead. This desire is probably being generated by the interaction between Mars, the planet of vim and vigor, and Pluto, the planet of power, and "no guts, no glory" seems to be the prevailing theme here.
LeoThursday, January 29, 2015
Active Mars is amusing transformative Pluto. So even if you're the type of person who typically likes to base your movements or actions on those around you, wouldn't be averse to waiting for the cavalry to ride to the rescue, or prefers to lie in wait until the moment seems 100% ripe: Try playing against type.
VirgoThursday, January 29, 2015
See if there isn't a way to advance your agenda or promote your creative or romantic program today. Commanding Mars and potent Pluto are smiling and nodding at one another, and if taking advantage of their connection means you can give a little boost to the aforementioned agenda or program, well, more power to you.
LibraThursday, January 29, 2015
Mars, the planet of initiation, is humoring Pluto, the planet of transition, offering you an opportunity to make some pretty impressive moves relative to ongoing home, family, physical or commercial matters. Good luck, and one strategy note: A light touch and a soupçon of dispassion (or an unconventional proposal or two) will work wonders at this time.
ScorpioThursday, January 29, 2015
Even though the situation you're involved in clearly calls for decisive action, you could probably craft a plausible argument for taking the path of least resistance and/or waiting to see what develops (perhaps from the safety of under the bed). However, doing so would be a crying waste of the advantage being created by this connection between Mars and boss Pluto.
SagittariusThursday, January 29, 2015
What's a little behind-the-scenes maneuvering in the overall scheme of things? With powerful Pluto in cahoots with headstrong Mars (and the following disclaimer) provided that you've done your research and know who's on your side, feel free to engage in a little string-pulling on behalf of one of your financial or creative endeavors.
CapricornThursday, January 29, 2015
You should probably take (or make) the time to do your research and get the story straight. Yup, even if this requires being a bit more painstaking than you have the time (or energy) for - and even if you've already promised somebody that they would have the file, blueprints, critique, product, or files yesterday.
AquariusThursday, January 29, 2015
Survey (and forceful Mars amusing equally forceful Pluto) says: There's likely a way to use another's assertiveness - or conviction that they have the answers - to your advantage. So lend them your ears, rather than giving one of your patented "Dear God, why am I the only person capable of using their heads for something other than propping up a hat?!" looks.
PiscesThursday, January 29, 2015
Mars, the planet of initiation, is amusing Pluto, the planet of transformation, suggesting that you are connecting with the right parties to advance your aims. And, if you treat them well - which is to say include them in your plans, and keep them in the loop - great things are likely to come from this affiliation!
