● General: A new person in your life is serving as a sort of beacon for you. Their visionary ideas and bold suggestions might not be your style, but there is wisdom in following their actions and doing as they do. It's not about mimicking or copying someone -- it's about being smart enough to let someone else be the guinea pig when it comes to a new trend or taking a risk on a high stakes gamble. This person is used to taking big chances, while you're just getting started. But the appeal of a big payoff is undeniable.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Be cool. Your reputation is your top concern, but you're affecting it in unintended ways. Try to make it all look easy, instead of making such a display of all your hard work.
● Finances: First you were convinced that money proved your inner value, and now you're concerned it's not making you valuable enough in the eyes of others. Spend time working on the real issue. Your illusions about money are your biggest problem.
● Love: Find a group of like-minded people and you could discover your next relationship in their midst. After all, there's more to love than just looks. Common interests and hobbies lead the way to something more substantial than a one-time stand.
● General: If you are convinced that you are right about a fact or issue today, how far are you willing to take it? It's admirable to defend your position, but you should stop short of getting into any power struggles -- someone might have something up their sleeve, and you can't afford to lose any ground to them, even if they gain it by cheating. You must refuse to get down in the dirt with someone else -- you only end up getting dirty yourself. This battle won't be worth it.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You're used to being the one doing the preaching, but you'll suddenly find the tables turned. You could see things from another perspective. You might even be enlightened. So listen up.
● Finances: Where you used to want to do everything your own, idiosyncratic way, you now realize the value of being one of the crowd. You're in high gear and heading straight toward the masses. The spending masses, that is.
● Love: It's easy to get rubbed the wrong way when people try to rush you into making a big decision. Don't let peer pressure call the shots. Study al the information in front of you and weigh your options. No need to be rash.
● General: When a suggestion is a good one, you should take it -- sometimes even if it goes against your own instincts. Someone really different may appear at this time. Do they say things that prove to you that they are on to something good? You need to become a part of it! Just because you don't know a person very well doesn't mean that they don't know you -- or at least what you want out of life. Let other people connect with you by letting them help you out.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: A partner can turn into an authority in the blink of an eye. That person could be you or someone else. The last place you want to be is under someone else's thumb, so assert yourself.
● Finances: You want to do more than dream about change, you want to make it happen. But more tools won't get the job done any faster or any better. Investing in them is simply throwing money at the problem.
● Love: A new point of view could be exactly what you need to understand a problem of the heart. Ask a friend you trust to give an honest response regarding this latest romantic obstacle. A different take on the issue may present the answers you seek.
● General: Are you sure that you're getting the sleep you need? It's important for you to stay in tip-top shape right now in order to make the most of this highly productive period. There is a lot of potential for you to earn a lot more money, but you are going to have to push yourself a little bit harder than you usually do in order to realize that goal. Debts are not going to disappear unless you start working up a little bit of a sweat to make them go away.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Problems at work are taking on an ominous tone. You can handle them really well or really badly, depending on how good you are at blocking out the background noise. Put in figurative earplugs if that's what it takes.
● Finances: Making hay while the sun shines has never been more applicable to your day. You have plenty of good energy and should put it to good use. Your mind will want to wander, but don't let it pull you off track.
● Love: When you are faced with a possible dating obstacle instead of letting your frustrations take over, learn to be more flexible. Have a few backup plans already stored away just in case the expected happens.
● General: One or two ego clashes are likely today, so prepare yourself for some disappointing behavior from people you used to respect. You will be thrust into a high stakes situation, and everyone around you will be ready to do whatever it takes to end up on top -- including cheat. This doesn't mean that you have to get down in the dirt with others in order to survive, though. You can rise above the fray. Maintain your honor while you keep your focus on what you need to do.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Times are vastly different now than they were a year ago. Knowing what you want and going after it with gusto looks a bit, well, ruthless. Take your colleagues into consideration today.
● Finances: Trusting your instincts is a perfectly legitimate way to make decisions, even financial ones. Listening to your gut is your safest form of research today. When others are unsure, you are crystal clear.
● Love: Sick of waiting for love to strike? Believe it or not, Cupid isn't at your beck and call. Romance isn't something you can manifest only when you're ready. It usually hits when you least expect it. Be patient and stay busy with activities that make you happy.
● General: What important people say is very important today -- it could reveal some secrets and give you an edge over the competition. So try to talk it up with as many people as possible. Ask probing questions, play devil's advocate, and don't shy away from taboo topics. Be open-minded about what people have to say and listen all the more intently when they say things that you don't necessarily like. Get ready to revise some of your long-held beliefs, because you just might have to.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Yes, you work for money, but that's not the only thing in the equation. All of your hard work pays off, just not in the ways you've been imagining. Enjoy the metaphorical bonus.
● Finances: You are reminded of a criticism you made of someone else, long ago and far away. Actually, not that long ago and pretty close to where you are now. It's embarrassing, but everything's changeable, even assumptions about your financial state versus that of others.
● Love: Offer constructive criticism instead of being just plain critical today. Your opinions are more valuable when people are actually listening to them. If you continue to taint your comments with judgmental statements no one will ask for your advice in the future.
● General: You are entering a phase where you are ready to put your ambition aside in favor of pursuing your social goals. You are getting along well with others right now, and this is a harmony that you should be in no hurry to end. Being with other people is very rewarding to you right now, and you truly value the people you're surrounded by. So the idea of getting to know them even better should be quite appealing. Today you should pull back on your work and just focus on fun.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You're just plain tired, but it's hard to address a problem whose source is outside the office. Use the old fashioned prescription: Hard work and no play makes for an excellent bromide.
● Finances: It's the wrong time for omelets. Try to keep all of your eggs in one basket, especially if those eggs are nest eggs. Investing in too many things is the wrong way to be spreading the wealth.
● Love: Your ability to understand others could be tested today. Keep your eyes and ears open to subtle clues that will help you stay on the right path. Don't let double-talk distract you from seeing someone's true intentions.
● General: Communicating with your family might be difficult right now -- your feelings might be so complicated that you either don't feel like sharing them or don't know how to share them! Either way, this is not a good day for any major conversations with siblings or your parents. And even scheduling a future visit is not advised right now, because you won't be able to come up with a time that works for everyone. So get back in touch with them in a few days.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Focus on willpower. Your self-control is a bit off, which is not uncommon for a day like today. Figure out a way to recalibrate before losing the profits the day has to offer.
● Finances: The difference between reality and fantasy is blurred today, and each state effects the other. Make good use of straddling the line. You can conjure up some pretty good ideas just by using your imagination.
● Love: Be open to new ideas and you could end up in love! Many of us stay single because we're too rigid in our requirements for the perfect mate. Reassess your standards for a partner and think more outside of your usual must-have list.
● General: People who have a lot of power over your life are going to be all around you today, so it's time to look your best and act your best. Of course, they are going to like what they see, and it won't be hard to impress them -- but you can't get too cocky about it, or take their approval for granted. Double check your work just in case and make sure you've finished everything perfectly. Your relationships with these people are good, but why not make sure that they get even better?
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: It's time to sit down and focus on your personal budget. Yes, you did that before, but it's time to reassess. Leave out all the things that take a bite out of your paycheck. Making your own lunch is just the beginning.
● Finances: Don't worry if you can't motivate yourself right off the bat. You have all day to get revved up, but even so, you might not manage it at all today. Everyone needs a personal day every now and then, no matter what day of the week it happens to fall on.
● Love: Keep an open mind regarding who may make a good lover. Just because you're attracted to a certain type doesn't mean you have to stick with it. Sometimes it's best to mix it up and see what happens.
● General: Your recent dreams have been vivid and rather entertaining, but do they hold valuable insight into how you can find happiness? No. They're just ideas your subconscious is playing with, and nothing more. Be careful not to read too much into the numbers that keep popping up. You can play them in the lottery, but don't expect a big win. Your prosperity is much more likely to come as a result of your hard work right now. Money still has to be earned.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Just what has value? Context is everything. You'd love extra money but you'll have to settle for recognition. Enjoy impressing others. The payoff that brings you will be rich.
● Finances: You'll be drawing a line in the sand only to erase it, over and over again. You just can't play hardball no matter how much you think you should, so don't even try. Indulge your softer side instead.
● Love: Your plans may not go well, but that doesn't mean your day is ruined. Pick yourself up and start again with a different strategy. Learn from your mistakes and move on. Stay positive and let it all come together next time.
● General: You'll receive an inexpensive but impressive gift today -- and you should show your gratitude accordingly. Thank the person or thank the universe -- whichever is responsible. It could be the gift of an idea, or an inspiration that will spark a great change in your life. Enjoy the 'eureka!' moment that is sure to come, which won't be hard to do. It's nice to be reminded that life is still full of surprises and that you are still capable of surprising other people once in a while.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: That hangdog look doesn't suit you. One surefire way to shake your guilty feelings is to work hard. Keep your head down and your attention focused on your desk.
● Finances: The more secure you feel, the more you spend. You're feeling too good right about now and it shows. The future may look bright but it's still nothing more concrete than a distant mirage. Don't overspend.
● Love: There's more to being attractive than just looks. Displaying self-confidence and a good sense of humor will get you noticed by those who desire a more memorable connection. Show your enthusiasm for life and other will want to know more about you.
● General: Daydreaming can help you visualize a better future for yourself, so today going off to fantasy land could be a very effective use of your free time. Focusing only on your day to day routine offers no stimulation whatsoever, no matter how interesting your days have been lately. Your mind needs to escape to a worry-free place where anything is possible and the world can be whatever you want it to be. You will find that escape through your vivid imagination.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: It's getting harder and harder to get things done at the office. Don't just complain about a lack of leadership. Take the initiative instead.
● Finances: Doting on your friends is a pleasure but you need to do something for yourself for a change. Being selfish is downright healthy in small quantities. Buy yourself something you've always wanted, and don't spend money on anyone but you.
● Love: Be open to change and you could end up with some exciting results. You can't control the future but your actions today can help shape the present. Stay flexible about the possibilities of love, in all its forms.
