Janis Ian turns 62 on Tuesday. The pop-folk singer-songwriter shot to fame in the 1970s, and is best known for her Grammy-winning hit “At Seventeen” — a long way from 62! She came out as lesbian in 1993.


ARIES: Mar 21–Apr 20
It’s hard to know when we are truly being honest with
ourselves. You’ve got so much invested in your own thing, it confuses you when it comes to dealing with others. Someone keeps coming around to give you whatever you need.

TAURUS: Apr 21–May 20
You have more than one option. It doesn’t matter which one you choose, because they carry an equal amount of opportunity. Don’t rush into decisions.

GEMINI: May 21–Jun 20
You can do this with your eyes closed, so stop worrying about how it’s all going to turn out. Your dexterity applies to a million different things. Your best qualities get axed when it comes time to focus.

CANCER: Jun 21–Jul 20
It’s amazing how people don’t know how to behave. Your nearest and dearest could be driving you nuts. If it isn’t that, there is probably more than one female giving you a run for your money. In most cases, there is nothing you can do about it.

LEO: Jul 21–Aug 20
Don’t let blame keep obscuring the truth. Nobody is out to get you. You need to stop dramatizing your situation and snap out of it. How you choose to interpret and react to others’ behavior is your business.

VIRGO: Aug 21–Sep 20
Nobody knows how much you need to make everything right. When things are less than perfect, you go crazy wondering where you messed up. Sometimes life takes us away from our best laid plans, not to make us wrong or punish us for our mistakes, but to show us how to mend things.

LIBRA: Sep 21–Oct 20
Your relationship situation is always an issue because you keep trying to make things look like they’re ‘supposed to.’ You’ve got so much going on, it would be a shame to let your life fall into the dustbin of convention and conformity.

SCORPIO: Oct 21–Nov 20
Don’t think too much about what you should, or shouldn’t, do in this situation. On a higher level it is being coordinated to go exactly where it needs to go. In obsessing too much about how it’s all going to work out, you betray a certain lack of faith.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov 21–Dec 20
You’ve got a lot of well-meant advice making it very difficult for you to see what you need to do. In the course of looking at things from every possible angle, you forgot about your own! The truth is you don’t know what you want. Somehow that got lost under a pile of distractions that have left you confused.

CAPRICORN: Dec 21 – Jan 20
The pressure is off — who knows why, but something clicked. In the course of figuring out what to do next, a couple of things come to mind. Everything that you have been working toward has finally begun to take shape.

AQUARIUS: Jan 21–Feb 20
We don’t stay in the same groove forever. What needs to happen next isn’t something that’s clear at the moment. Any impulse to change the way you do things has to be tempered with enough patience to wait till the time is right.

PISCES: Feb 21–Mar 20
Your doubts about this keep getting confirmed by the way things look to you. Others are not of the same mind. It’s interesting how two people can look at the identical situation and see entirely different things.
