Impulses, by nature, have short lives. If you don't follow an impulse within five seconds, you're unlikely to follow it at all, and it dies. Of course, another could take its place. Then you'd have another five-second window to act. Use the timing of impulses to your benefit as the moon shifts from active Aries to rooted Taurus.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 14). Greatness always involves some level of surrender. Novice performers sing a song. Great performers let the song sing them. This metaphor best describes the shift you make this year, and the improvements happen across the board, from the personal to the professional; your "audience" will move to your groove. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 28, 1 and 27.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The old saying "a penny for your thoughts" wasn't accounting for inflation. Your thoughts are worth much more, and if you organize and present them, you'll be paid.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Whereas some attack projects, you approach, negotiate, arrange, organize, compartmentalize and dance with them. Your work today will be as graceful as art.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Can you provide people with a reason to feel delighted, uplifted and hopeful about what's to come? If so, you'll be one of the few today. But be warned: Though they are "few," they are disproportionately popular.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll deflect praise back to the praiser, channel attention and resources to where they will do the most good, and direct negativity and criticism toward a constructive purpose -- all practices of a great leader.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When hurt or offended, you rarely react in the moment. You need time to process your feelings and may, in the meantime, behave differently toward the source of your discomfort, which is only natural. Give yourself space.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You've been gentle with yourself and let yourself ease into the work, but now it's time to change tone, get serious, make demands and push, perhaps even force yourself to discover your grit.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's not like you to pursue a thing halfheartedly. When it happens, you have to ask yourself, "Why am I holding back?" Do you sense something's off about the situation, or is this about your confidence? You'll get honest and solve it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Finally, some progress in affairs of the heart. And the best part is that you didn't have to ask annoying questions such as, "Can we talk?" Somehow, you just naturally got onto the same page.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Harmony isn't always reached through hard work and finagling. Today will prove the concept. Metaphorically, you just open your mouth and start singing. The tones match up. It's as natural as wolves howling in a pack.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The critical find it easy to criticize; the agreeable find it easy to agree. Both have advantages and follies. A learning exercise: Wherever you are on the spectrum, seek a tone on the other side and give it a whirl.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). For 90 percent of the day, what you say will not be so important as how you say it. But for the remaining 10 percent (and you'll sense it when you're there), do endeavor to get the message exactly right. It will save you from wasting time.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Having someone to report to will make the difference when it comes to getting to the goal. If this sort of relationship doesn't exist naturally in your current life, set it up. It will quickly become a fixture when you see how well it works.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Capricorn Jason Bateman was already a Hollywood veteran by the time he played the child antagonist in the TV series "Silver Spoons." Three decades later, the show business lifer is busier than ever producing, directing and acting in projects, including the third season of the thrilling crime drama "Ozark." His natal Venus is in Pisces, indicating that he has a highly intuitive approach to life and work.
