Born on

January 18: There is no point in rushing up matters that need careful contemplation. There is a danger that you may act first and think about your actions later. Your grasp of facts and figures is not perfect. So guard against complacency. There is no need to be unnecessarily generous with people who donít deserve your patronage.

Work may involve a fair degree of grind and the gains may be below your expectations. Betting on the wrong horse is always a risky affair and should be guarded against.

January 19: A debilitated moon is fast losing her shine. The indications are that you are heading towards a high-spending phase which may keep you off colour for most of the time. The unreasonable demands of your associated could make matters worse. Even if you try hard to control your expenses, you could be tempted to indulge yourself. In short, whatever you do, the result will be quite negative. All you have to do is to tighten your purse strings and bridge the gap between the income and expenditure.

January 20: With Mars in the house of energy and enthusiasm, you should be on the crest of a lucky wave. Although it is just a start, but you can expect much better gains with the passage of time. All matters, particularly the financial ones, are sure to run smoothly and there will be no looking back. You will be cashing in on good bargains, taking wise decisions and pursuing sensible investments.

Your most valuable asset will be your ability to mend relationships with people who are in the habit of picking up the wrong end of the stick.

January 21: The stars governing your home and family look fairly bright. This means you can pursue ambitious plans with success. It also suggests that you should now be pushing yourself in public life more seriously. Some sort of a commanding role can be anticipated.

So try to stay close to people who have a soft corner for you.

Happy news is on the way from a loved one who is probably far away. In matters of the heart, you can expect a slight improvement.

January 23: A marked increase in your personal achievements, a consistent boost in your influence and authority and the dawn of wisdom to guide your actions, are some of the features of the incoming year. This, in fact, is the most auspicious time to widen the sphere of your activity. The only snag is that there will be little scope for rest and relaxation.

You are ready to turn the tide in your favour. There is no reason to be shy and self-effacing. You will do wonders by leading from the front. This is no time to stay back and lose a golden opportunity.

January 24: Financial constraints tend to keep you in a tight corner. Money will flow like water and you will have no control over your impulsive actions. It is also probable that you may undertake a risky venture to become rich overnight. However, a strict watch over your funds is necessary.
