Careful. You’re unusually susceptible to lost causes while Mars is under the influence of Neptune (Jan. 19 – 25). Neptune tends to water down the defenses of whatever planet it conjoins. Born under Mars, you’re usually drawn to buff, virile types with a lower body fat percentage than you. However, Neptune’s influence could lead you into the orbit of arty types with twiggy limbs, sallow expressions and a two pack a day habit. Don’t fall for it! Adopt an animal rescue instead. It won’t cost as much and the pooch (or kitty) will always be grateful for the love you give.
