● General: Do you want to live your life your own way, or according to what other people say? If your reputation is your top concern (and it should be), then you need to stop listening to what other people say and start listening to what your inner voices is telling you! Compromising what you want is never going to help you get anywhere, no matter what people say. Stay true to your beliefs -- talking to an older relative might help you get some insight on how to stay on track.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Someone is always a bit insensitive, and someone is always too frank and open, but at least the food is good and you're not at work. Those are just two things to be thankful for.
● Finances: You don't have to be an opportunist to get ahead today. Chances are dropping before you like pennies from heaven. You'd be a fool not to scoop some up while you're out and about.
● Love: A new local is just what you need to recharge your social batteries. Skip the usual haunts and visit a different hangout destination. Ask coworkers and friends about their favorite places to get their groove on.
● General: You are feeling grounded and ready to get real with your favorite people. It's time for a dinner party, or some other mellow social event where the main activity is conversation. If you don't have the time or skills to put it together yourself, make a not-so subtle hint to your group's best host and chances are they will take the bait. And once folks hear you're coming, the guest list will fill! You sure do know how to get people together -- even if you're not actually the one doing all the work.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You can charm people from other cultures, but can you charm someone from across the table? That's your challenge for the day. Start by summoning all of your winning boardroom memories.
● Finances: A slight shift in perspective is like an earth-shaking change in attitude. Your thoughts about money have never seemed sillier to you. The giddy, giggling phase will pass but your enlightenment will not.
● Love: It's true all that glitters is not gold, but yet you can't help but be attracted to sparkly, cute people. Initial attraction is fine, but look beneath the surface to see if indeed you have a gem or a jerk.
● General: Momentum will be hard for you to achieve today -- as soon as you get into your day, you are probably going to start feeling foggy or unclear about what to do next. If that happens, then turn your focus outward. Instead of getting all wrapped up in your own goals, focus on the things that other people are doing. See if you can help them. Often, when you step out of your own life, you get a better perspective on it. This isn't a good day to start any solo projects.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: It's one of those good time extremes. You want to overdo it, and everyone at the table is coming from the same angle. Enjoy it while you can.
● Finances: Don't bother trying to identify your detractors. The only one holding you back is you. If you let your fear keep the upper hand, you'll definitely never succeed. Talk yourself into action.
● Love: You're on a deeper level of understanding today than most people. Show friends that you are the bigger person by letting go of long-kept grudges and forgiving past mistakes. It's time to move on.
● General: If it feels like too many people aren't getting what you're saying right now, don't get frustrated. Others may misinterpret you, but that doesn't mean they don't want to keep listening to you. People are willing to put in some effort to be a part of your world, because being a part of your world is so worthwhile! From time to time you are bound to feel out of sync with them, but so what? Do not strive for smooth interactions all the time. You'll waste too much energy censoring yourself.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: If you're having a social or private life problem, you may actually wish you were with coworkers. It may sound crazy, but things have been known to get that bad. Look forward to the workday.
● Finances: You're much more aware of subtleties than those around you are. So when you make financial decisions, explain yourself even if it seems like you're pointing out the obvious. The clarification alone is like money in the bank.
● Love: Seeking and finding true love isn't as hard as you might imagine. Be open to new people who don't match up exactly to your soul mate wish list. Dating outside of your usual type results in better odds for romance.
● General: Tempers could be flaring today, including yours -- the plans you had put together aren't working out how you had hoped, and now it looks like today is going to be all about putting out fires. The good news is that you have a strong sense of what you want, so it will be just a matter of figuring out how to get there. Make as few compromises as possible -- if you let other people drive things in a direction you're not totally comfortable with, you will definitely regret it.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: The finish line is totally out there. In fact, someone keeps moving it further away, the closer you get. Keep eating your way there, inch by inch. The day will soon be over, with or without having crossed it.
● Finances: It's great to help someone else with what they need, as long as you don't brag about doing it. Whether it's lending a hand or lending money, doing it should be its own reward. Don't let your ego convince you otherwise.
● Love: Today your chances at romance are amplified by a chance meeting with someone new. It could be a stranger you bump into on the street, or even someone you just met in the grocery store line. Smile and see what happens next.
● General: Romance may require some hard work from time to time, but it always pays off! If you are in a relationship right now, give your partner a little bit more attention and tender loving care than you have been giving them lately. Compromise will bring the two of you closer. And if you're not in a relationship, today it's time to work a little bit harder at making a connection with that person you've been talking to a lot lately. Open up a little more and be vulnerable. Share a dream.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You want to rush ahead but can't. No, it's not an anxiety dream, it's more like a fantasy. The only thing you'll get around to is digesting, so claim your spot on the couch.
● Finances: If you have to choose between romance and fun, you're hardly caught between a rock and a hard place. You'll have a good day no matter what you choose. As long as you don't overspend, you just can't lose.
● Love: Force yourself to go out and have a good time. You could use some fun, and your friends will be more than happy to assist. Plan a night out on the town, or go a step further and plan a shindig of your own.
● General: If you're feeling like there are too many limits being placed on you right now, it is probably because you're not pushing against them hard enough! You need to stretch yourself -- it will feel good, and it will show people that you don't need them looking over your shoulder. Step up and take on more responsibility, and you will be given more autonomy. Add a little more ambition to the mix and do not be afraid to fail. Even if you fail, at least you will learn something.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: It's all good, literally. You don't have to balance out or pick and choose, either. The time is right to go hog wild, so follow your gut feelings.
● Finances: It's a good feeling to know your checkbook is balanced. If only you could spread that feeling over into other areas. It's not as easy to get equilibrium on the home front, but it isn't impossible, either.
● Love: Today you need to communicate when something is bothering you. A friend who wronged you may not even realize they hurt your feelings. Give them the benefit of the doubt and tell them what's been pestering you.
● General: You don't mind helping people when they need it, which is one of the things people love about you. But be careful not to give aid blindly. Today, someone who doesn't really need your help will ask for it -- and if you can get away with saying no, you should. The two of you usually work well together, but it will feel too much like they are taking advantage of you. They need to be reminded that you might not be there when they really need you. Teach them not to take you for granted.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You'll get caught up in the moment, but it will be over before you know it. The after-effect is what lasts. And lasts, and lasts. At least nothing turns out to be too good to be true.
● Finances: Someone you play well with could become someone you work well with. A good idea leads to a new venture. It's premature to invest any money, but not too early to get communication rolling.
● Love: Trust your instincts today when it comes to dealing with a frenemy. Someone posing as a pal with your interests at heart could be planning to block your every attempt at happiness out of pure jealousy.
● General: If you are looking for an energy boost, look no further than the art museum! Any place that is devoted to the visual representation of ideas has to be a great source of inspiration! If you can't manage to physically get in front of a great painting or sculpture, then check out what you can find online. Website design is art, after all -- and if you poke around long enough, you're sure to find some sights and sounds that make you see things in a new way.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Most people stick to the traditional today, but not you or your hosts. Expect the unexpected. In other words, prepare to be shocked and amazed before you indulge.
● Finances: Penny pinching is wise, but skimping on material is not. Quality still matters more than savings. You'll be affecting any pay off down the line by the compromises you make today. Stick to your guns.
● Love: Happiness is in the eye of the beholder so quit comparing your love life with others. Even the happiest couples have moments when they miss being sexy, single and ready to mingle. Enjoy your current status.
● General: It's a great day to voice your strongest opinions -- even if that means throwing a tiny temper tantrum. Everyone reverts to their childhood now and again, and today you'll be surrounded by people who will understand if you get extreme in your behavior. You won't be embarrassed if you lose your cool -- you will feel refreshed! Later in the day, the universe will send you some high energy that will make you feel much better about where things are going. People do listen to you!
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: With the bounty before you, it hardly seems possible that you'll be able to make a dent. But you will if you persevere! Not that you need a carrot and a stick to do just that, today.
● Finances: The good results you've been waiting for are starting to trickle in. That's all you need to throw yourself back into a project with gusto. Your high energy helps bring in the profits that much quicker.
● Love: A big project may seen daunting to you today, but if you stop procrastinating you will be able to handle it. Ask for help to stay on track. When you persevere, there's nothing you can't accomplish.
● General: In the interest of keeping the group in harmony, encourage compromise. There is a lot of subliminal stuff going on, and people do not all share the same goals. To make sure that no one person uses the group power to get what's best for only them, you'll have to keep a sharp eye on the prize. Reinforce what goals everyone should be working for -- don't let one strong personality hijack everything for their own gain. You have the skills to keep things civil.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Some like to organize huge groups and others a small circle of friends. But however you spend the day, remember the most important element is giving thanks.
● Finances: You're tired of all the discipline and spending restrictions you've been dealing with. Let yourself splurge on something that doesn't come with a big price tag. The dollar store or an afternoon matinee fit the bill.
● Love: Your friends could use some sage wisdom about love. While you may still be reeling from past mistakes, chances are you have plenty of useful idioms to motivate others to do the right thing.
● General: It's way too easy to let other people take control today -- while it's actually quite healthy for you to step back and hand over one or two of your responsibilities right now, it's not wise to completely disconnect yourself from the work at hand. There is a difference between delegating a job to someone who could use the opportunity for some hands-on learning and getting something off your plate just so you don't have to deal with it anymore -- and you know it. So trust yourself.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Do more than think before speaking. Give yourself a bit of preparation time, especially if you're giving a toast. Small ears are paying attention.
● Finances: You can feel that someone in power is on your side, even if you have no idea who that person is. Your lucky charm isn't something you can wear for reassurance. It's something inside you that makes it easy for others to want to help you succeed.
● Love: Today is a great opportunity to ask your crush out. You've been waiting for your chance and this is it. Don't worry about embarrassing outcomes. Luck will be on your side.
