● General: It's important to pursue your dreams today. What you want in life isn't just going to be handed to you. You need to figure out a plan of action -- and luckily your brain is sharp enough today to help you sift through all the noise and see what can be done. You've been in a fog about someone for a while, and a conversation with a mutual friend will illuminate some facts you were previously unaware of. Your long-held opinion about them is about to change.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: It's the perfect day to do as little as possible, physically that is. Mentally and emotionally, there is no better time to rethink the past year and plan ahead. Get cracking.
● Finances: Putting a roof over your head takes more than charm, but when it comes to being treated like royalty, nothing else is required. Your company is delightful and people are waiting in line for their turn to enjoy it. Your popularity pays off in a myriad of ways that don't involve money.
● Love: Focus on the present. Sure, this guy or gal has swept you off your feet, and you're already thinking about your wedding vows, but shake it off. Pay attention to their character. Do they talk over you? Are they late? Are they respectful? The answers are right there in front of you.
● General: A charming new person might come into your life today, and they will be giving you lots of compliments. However, their flattery is probably going to cause you to ask them some questions instead of just blushing. This is a very good sign, actually -- it means that this person can offer more to you than just an ego boost. So engage with them and find out who they really are and what they are about. The two of you have common goals that you need to explore together.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You're looking to the future. While you're at it, it's a good time to come up with some far out plans. Moving ahead at the office is just the beginning.
● Finances: How can anyone be happy without money? It's normally a mystery to you, but you'll be shocked by your capacity to do just that. Your lack of funds may be only temporary, but your happiness doesn't have to be. If it didn't feel like an integral part of you before, it does now.
● Love: Don't deny your physical needs right now. A little skin-to-skin contact could be right on! Flip through your little black book and call up that friend with privileges. What you do in your bedroom is your business, and even if you don't go all the way, a great make-out session will do wonders for your attitude.
● General: Have some fun today and focus on creative pursuits. Even if you can't draw your way out of a paper bag, you can create some great things today if you simply try. Explore the colors, sounds and sights you enjoy the most, and eventually an idea will strike you like a bolt of lightening. Share your excitement with others and invite them to contribute their own ideas wherever they see fit. They know that when you are involved, there is sure to be laughter and learning.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: You're dreaming of your career, even today. The clouds and stars line up to turn those dreams into blueprints. It may seem like a baby step, but you can't start your future without it.
● Finances: Doing without is one of your hidden strengths, but not one you want to test very often. Just know it's one of your resources, tucked away for future use. Just knowing it's there will calm some of your inner, worried chatter.
● Love: You see the ring on the finger, yet, you can't walk away. Hey! Wake up! This is taboo territory -- bad karma. Don't pursue those unavailable men and women, even if they act otherwise. Your heart's in the wrong place. Instead, focus on altruism. Volunteer or do some charity work to get out of your crazy head.
● General: You are surrounded by good people with good energy right now, so try to make the most of it! Get out there and get to know those people who you've had some short but sweet conversations with. Where there is smoke there is fire, so follow any chemistry and see where it leads the two of you. It doesn't have to be a romantic connection, either. Great friendships can blossom out of the tiniest little seed, so be open minded and let whatever is meant to be come to be!
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: All the good energy of the last few weeks takes some time to dissipate. Letting your mind wander is the perfect way to help it melt away without squandering it. Make sure your job appears in your daydreams.
● Finances: Thinking outside the box has made you what you are. You've been known to come up with some crazy suggestions, but today you're out of ideas. Don't feel compelled to throw some out there just because others expect it of you. That would only water down your oddball reputation.
● Love: You simply don't have the time or effort for a lot of fluffy dialogue right now. But the heat's on, and you must leave a marvelous impression. Easy. Give someone a compliment. Not just any compliment -- finesse it. Make it real; make it genuine; make it unique. No phony stuff here.
● General: You have always tried to be there for your friends when they needed you, but it's important for you to remember that you cannot fix their problems right now -- you can only support them in whatever solution they come up with. So don't react too emotionally to someone else's life problems right now, even if you care a lot about this person. Your compassion is admirable, but you can't let your concerns for other people distract you from finding your own happiness.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Exactly what you want from life once things return to normal is not exactly clear, but what you want from your job suddenly is. You've already listened to your instinct; now find creative ways to make necessary changes.
● Finances: You have weathered a nasty storm with your pride intact. That alone should have you considering yourself in the black, and it doesn't even take your abundant integrity into account. It's a good day to take a look at your internal, not external, status.
● Love: The past comes into play: your ex. Either you're already post-breakup pals, or, they're trying to get back in your good graces. Check your motives. Do you want to fix what couldn't be fixed? Are you afraid of being alone? Do you want sex? The instant gratification probably isn't worth the emotional risk.
● General: You'll be working and thinking at a brisk pace all day long -- until you run head first into a bunch of emotions that you won't know quite what to do with. Something will trigger this collision -- maybe an ugly argument, a surprising revelation, or just a random news announcement. But you can process these complicated emotions if you take your time. Go slow and ask for more time if you need it. People will want to know why you're off your game, so tell them.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Give yourself one more day to do not much of anything. All the restless energy you'll store up today can be put to good use in the coming weeks. Use it to get things done once you're back at work.
● Finances: Your financial philosophies and your habits are not always on the same page. It's a good time to make sure how you live and how you think you live are actually synching up. Only choose activities that are compatible with your financial commitments.
● Love: Okay, so the chemistry isn't always instant. But that doesn't mean this date can't smolder. It's up to you to turn a ho-hum encounter into a blast-off experience. Rely on imagery: imagine you're making out with this person throughout the date. Okay, it sounds corny, but it'll loosen up your body language. Have some fun!
● General: Planning will be a lot of fun for you today -- especially if the upcoming event you're working on involves a lot of different elements! You have a wonderful ability to appreciate the smaller things in life, including the details of this upcoming project. Names, numbers, and other tiny bits of information are all things that you can master, then organize with ease. Everyone else will defer to you on the big picture since you have the small picture so well in hand.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Stick with your current project. If that means resting up to confront the coming year, then so be it. Spend the day appreciating the smaller things in life, like being off of work.
● Finances: Your challenge is to whip up a gourmet meal for under ten dollars. That's not literally the assignment life gives you, but it's an apt metaphor. Your guests will love what you serve, without having any idea of the cost.
● Love: Okay. So this thing isn't working out between you and this other person. You gave it a few dates, and it's just not there. End it with an email. No need to go face to face with this one. Don't use too many words. A simple: 'It doesn't have that special quality for me' will do.
● General: If you want more attention from a boss, a crush, or even your current romantic partner, then you need to stop asking for it. Back up, go off on your own, and create a little mystery around yourself. Their curiosity will inevitably get the better of them, and before you know it they'll be approaching you for some alone time. It might take longer than you'd like for this to happen, but so what? You'll be off doing your own thing, and this kind of independence will feel good.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Indulging in fantasy is the only way to make dreams eventually overlap with reality. Imagine where you want your job to take you in the coming year. Go ahead and salivate over it.
● Finances: Winning isn't in the cards. If you can't enjoy an activity for the sport of it, then don't bother participating at all. But learning to be flexible about whether you win or lose would be a valuable addition to your emotional portfolio. Giving a new attitude a try is worth a small investment of your time and emotion.
● Love: Forget about reality -- that's just depressing. The bedroom: now that's where it's going on. Sexual energy abounds, so don't be surprised to find your clothing (and someone else's) tangled up on the floor. Just be safe: use vegan condoms. A romp in the hay can save your sanity and the earth!
● General: You're feeling the need for someone to help you start thinking more positively right now -- your own ability to stay focused on good thought is getting challenged. So set aside some time to hunker down and just hang with the folks you care the most about right now. Those who know you best will be able to say the right words that will put a smile on your face. This is the start of a contemplative phase in your life, where you will rediscover a talent you'd taken for granted.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: If you get excited about the day at all, it will only be to think about the past and imagine what you want from your future. Keep your eye on goals you keep managing to lose.
● Finances: Crunching the numbers is so satisfying you can hardly take a day off. You're dying to analyze something. Anything. But simply being is the most valuable way to spend your time. You'll ultimately be more refreshed when you get back to analyzing the small details.
● Love: You're particularly vulnerable to deception today, so watch out for the liars. As you peruse potential dates, study the vitals: height, weight, age, marital status and so on. Does the info jibe? What about the pictures? If they only feature a couple, that's a red flag. Those might be the best ever taken of this person.
● General: Today, you will have an urge to go explore a place or idea that is usually uncomfortable for you. Your curiosity has become stronger than your fear of the unknown, and this is a very positive development. Music will help you carry this good phase along -- listen to it for inspiration. In fact, try to take your radio along with you wherever you go. Staying plugged in will not isolate you from the world. It will encourage you to keep discovering, and keep exploring.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Don't spend so much as a minute thinking about work. Spend your time on things that leave you feeling good. Think of it as an investment in future productivity.
● Finances: You can hardly remember to relax, but life has a way of making you take a break anyway. It might not seem like one of life's necessities, but it is. After all, being economical can be tiring, not to mention being productive.
● Love: Don't lapse into blah today when it comes to your online profile. Avoid falling for cliches. Sure, your ideal may be walking into the sunset, hand in hand, but come on. That's so cheesy and predictable. Express your unique qualities -- seek the same in others.
● General: While you know how to create a good time for everyone around you, you might not be feeling like making life easier for others. Why? Well, things are not so easy for you right now. It might be a good idea to put yourself first today. Take a break from your cruise director duties and turn your attentions toward doing things that make you happy, not what makes everyone else happy. They aren't going to feel abandoned if you're not up for planning their fun -- they will feel empowered.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: It's a good time to reevaluate everything in your life. Most things make the cut, but some, it goes without saying, should get the axe. Make sure your job lines up with your values.
● Finances: Ignorance is not bliss. Letting your peculiarities out into the light of day is your best defense against them. They're growing like weeds in the dark of your inattention. It doesn't take expensive therapy to prune them back, though. All it takes is your acknowledgement of their existence.
● Love: Don't expect just any old warm body to meet your emotional needs. It's about finding the right person, but until that happens, fill your life with meaning. Volunteer, forge new relationships and reach out to others. Surrounding yourself with others is the best way to stave off the loneliness.
● General: You might be feeling a little bit insecure about your status in your social circle right now -- but if there is any kind of power shift going on among your friends, it is a temporary disturbance! Have a little bit more faith in the people you choose to hang out with. They have things going on in their lives that are creating some weird energy and it's got nothing to do with you. A new beginning is coming quite soon -- something that will unite all of you for a common cause.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Don't wonder just what to do with another day off. Rediscover who you really are, just in time for the challenges of the coming year. You'll be amazed at the changes you can pack into 24 hours.
● Finances: Communication is mercurial and unpredictable at best. Your temperament isn't the only one fueling this roller coaster ride. The search for beautiful words is meaningless, but something physical -- like a good meal or a massage -- speaks volumes.
● Love: You know it; the other person doesn't. This just isn't working out. Be kind when it comes to breaking the news. If you've been intimate with this person, you owe them a phone call. If not, an email will suffice, just stay positive and supportive. And don't patronize. Leave the 'Let's be friends' line alone.
