● General: You should definitely keep looking at things from different angles. It's the right strategy for now and for your immediate future. Your gift for being flexible in your interpretations has given you a reputation for being fair and considerate of others. But you might need to stop looking at all the angles just for a moment today in order to act more quickly. Taking time to understand the whole picture is always a better strategy, but it is not always the most practical one -- at least today.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Someone is trying to convince you that what they're selling is the best thing since sliced bread, or as necessary to work as a computer. Don't buy it, in more ways than one. The economy isn't even the only issue.
● Finances: There is a bit of friction in your day, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. You can parlay it into something profitable with minimal effort on your part. The key is seeing it as an opportunity.
● Love: Even if you don't do things right the first time, you don't have to always hit the reset relationship button. You can still learn from your past mishaps in love. Be aware of what worked and what didn't. Patterns reveal plenty.
● General: Start getting more direct with your communication, and you'll start getting the answers you need from people a lot more quickly. So stop playing phone tag, stop using text messages as your primary way to converse with friends, and forget using email to ask anyone anything. Voice mail, text messages, and email can all be ignored or put off. But when you get face to face with someone, they have to give you an answer! Step up and ask people what you need to know in person.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Don't waste your time with impulse buys. Reality comes back to bite you pretty quickly these days. Instead of lugging it all back to the office, just drool over it online instead.
● Finances: Don't waste any energy today. Power struggles are just diverting your attention from something more profitable. If your money looked like it was getting stuck in quicksand, you'd do your best to pull it out. Do the same for your psychic energy.
● Love: Today you'll be getting a good response back from others about your hopes and dreams. It's not easy to open yourself up to new people, but they will appreciate your passion behind your life goals. You may end up inspiring those who need it most.
● General: Your creativity can help you save money! If your budget is getting tight, then skip the socializing and stick close to home. If you miss your friends, you could always invite them over for a casual dinner party or potluck. Cooking for your friends is another wonderful way of showing them how much you value them in your life. Think up some fun theme and get out your cookbooks. Search the web for some inexpensive party ideas. You can have fun on the cheap -- you just have to try.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Drastic measures are in the offing, but not today. For once, no follow through is a good thing. Take advantage of the opportunity to have a relaxing, productive day.
● Finances: Being opinionated is the exact opposite of being intellectual, and you have confused the two. If you can't see all sides of a debate and be willing to change your mind, you're not the big thinker you imagine yourself to be. Don't invest based solely on today's opinion.
● Love: Being possessive about a friend could result in losing one. Give your pals a chance to spend time with other people. When you demand to always be included in the festivities, your pal could start to suffocate under the pressure to keep you happy.
● General: Whether you want to expand your social circle, grow your career network, or just get some attention from a powerful person, today is the day when you need to start showing everyone that you are unique and worth listening to. So step forward and grab some center stage time. Make sure that the spotlight is trained right on you, and make sure it stays on you! You have been waiting for this close up for a while now, and you are ready to make the most of it.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You're feeling irritable but not because you're overwhelmed. In fact, it's because you're under-whelmed. You're actually wishing your projects had more aspects to them. Focus on other tasks that need completing.
● Finances: There's no such thing as a free lunch, but you'll get duped again and again. You just can't pass up a so-called bargain. As extravagant as your purchases are getting, you deserve the dings in your credit they're creating.
● Love: The spotlight is on you today, so make the most of it. Be confident in your skills and know that people admire your intellect and prowess. You have more fans than you might realize. Smile and enjoy the stage.
● General: This is a great day to work with others, especially if they are trying to improve or beautify things. Don't be too modest about your ideas for the project, either. Often it's easy to influence people to agree with what you are saying by being enthusiastic and confident. Your input can help steer things in the right direction, so speak up and let everyone know what you are thinking before it's too late. If it's hard to get a word in edgewise, then make some noise.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Your way of doing things is unique. Keep that in mind during any brainstorming sessions. You can learn a thing or two and even let yourself smile inwardly, but don't bring much of it back to your cubicle.
● Finances: You don't need huge achievements to feel like life is good again. Even small gains make you feel pretty good. You may not be at your former glory, but just the tiniest hint you're on your way there is all you need.
● Love: You may have an honest desire to maintain goodwill among feuding friends. But be careful not to get caught in the crossfire. Remain neutral at all times, and only offer advice when asked. In the end, a truce will be up to them, not you.
● General: An upcoming family gathering might not be scheduled at a convenient time or place for you, but it is more important than ever for you to make the effort to be there and be ready to reconnect to the people who love you. You need to remind them -- and yourself -- that the love you share is important, not something to take for granted. So if you are undecided about whether or not to go, today you should decide in the affirmative. You will be very glad you did.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Whether the day stays positive or goes sour has more to do with your fears than with reality. Stay focused on work issues and don't waste time speculating.
● Finances: Staying on course is imperative. You have too much happening to be flexible, but if you can't bend, you'll break. The only way out of your situation is to spend money. If you guessed Hired Help, you guessed right.
● Love: A new person is about to change how you see yourself. It can nerve-racking to look at a facet of yourself you'd rather keep hidden. But now is the perfect time to work on something you've always wanted to change. The transformation is up to you.
● General: There is a lot of duality in your life right now -- too much, actually. One of the people you thought was an original thinking is starting to follow the crowd and it's disappointing you. They are turning into a copycat and it's up to you to remind them how wonderfully unique they are. Tell them that if they could just keep being genuine and true to who they are, they would find the happiness they seek. There is no point in changing who you are to get what you think you want.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You're feeling conflicted. On the one hand, why bother? And on the other, it ain't over 'til it's over. True, your job may not last forever, but you can still experience new things while you're there. Branch out and enjoy.
● Finances: The nagging details that eat away at your day don't really matter when you're with real friends. You'll know who they are by the questions they don't ask. The ones who want answers they don't really deserve are the ones to be avoided.
● Love: Your routine may be disrupted by a friend who needs your help. Make time to give them your full attention to the matter at hand. They will appreciate your genuine interest in their dilemma.
● General: This is the perfect day to just relax and go with the flow, because that flow will take you to some wonderful places. So try not to push back or control things. The less effort you put into directing how things will go, the better everything will be. You have got to start trusting the people around you to make the right choices -- they know what they are doing. While they might have a different style than you, they still know how to get the job done.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Don't let stress cloud your mind. Your eagle eyes are as important now as ever. The fine print is hiding an unusual detail, so stay alert and focus.
● Finances: If you want more money, you'll have to get more work. No one can squeeze anything extra out of what you're doing now, not even your boss. So don't bother asking for a raise, at least not today.
● Love: Try not to control every element of a first date. By demanding that everything to be perfect, you may be adding undue pressure to yourself and the person you're with. Take a more casual approach to the outing and keep your expectations low.
● General: Are all of your attitudes stuck in the past? Holding onto the same opinion forever does not speak well of your flexibility or intelligence. If new facts or figures come to light today, you need to take them seriously and listen without objection. Be brave enough to adjust some of your thinking and admit that maybe things have changed for you. Not only is it natural to re-evaluate your position on controversial topics, it is intelligent.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Being a valuable employee is more critical than ever. All talk and no action? Be careful. There's enough going on to keep you busy from nine to five and then some, so dig in.
● Finances: You live for gains, not losses, but occasional losses are written into the rules of the game. Unfortunately, they've become par for the course lately. It's time to do some reevaluating. If your efforts are falling short, rededicate yourself to excellence.
● Love: Questioning someone's motives could get you in hot water today. Before you begin throwing around accusations make sure you have more facts than hunches. No one likes being thought of as fraud so choose your words carefully.
● General: Going out with friends and having lots of fun is a great thing to do, but you should not be doing it every single night. If all you do is go out and socialize, you might be avoiding something that you need to deal with. It's time to stay closer to home for a while. Get back in touch with yourself, and let yourself think about the things you haven't wanted to think about. They are not that bad. Big issues tend to crumble when you look at them honestly and try to dissect them.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Avoid chit-chat. It will just attract the wrong kind of people. If you want to be surrounded by rock solid, dependable colleagues, then don't yak. Just cut to the chase.
● Finances: Squabbling is a good word for what children do over Monopoly money. What's going on in your life today is more accurately described as warfare. Everyone plans on fighting to the finish, and that means no one is left standing without their worst sides revealed.
● Love: Don't take things personally when someone criticizes your actions. This person may be frustrated with other issues and needs a person to lash out on to feel better about themselves. Or perhaps they're jealous of your ideas. Either way, take the comments with a grain of salt.
● General: Strangers could have a positive impact on your life now -- especially the ones who have reached a goal you've been struggling to reach. That makes today a great time to reach out. Be more outgoing with people you don't know. Do not be afraid to walk up and talk to a total stranger. After all, they could turn out to be your next boss, best friend, or sweetheart! It's not intimidating to get to know someone, it's exciting. Imagine all the things they've done that you've never even thought of.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: It's not exactly love, but you do get a warm, fuzzy feeling throughout the day. It's brought on by a place or thing, not a person. Even though it's not exactly a sizzling affair, use the emotion to boost your productivity.
● Finances: Compromise is the oil that greases the wheel of life. If you've never realized that, the idea may seem extraordinary, and you're not quite sure you buy it yet. Do a little experimenting and see how effective a tool it really can be.
● Love: This is a good time to organize your feelings. The more in touch you are with your emotions, the easier it will be to reveal them to others. Get a better understanding about what you honestly think about that certain someone who has caught you eye.
● General: If you get stuck in a situation that might escalate into a confrontation, quick -- use your sense of humor to diffuse things! If an annoying or pushy person comes into your world today, crack a joke to let them know you're not intimidated by them, or amused by their antics. They'll get the message loud and clear and fall right in line. Plus, when you deliver your wit, you'll also be entertaining the people who are watching you cut them down to size.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You're just not sure what to do. One minute you're certain, the next, clarity dissolves. There's no way around feeling like a deer in the headlights, but at least you're in good company.
● Finances: It's hard to stay focused on reality. Ironic, since your daydreams are all about the work you're avoiding. Instead of dreaming of money, do the sweating it takes to earn it.
● Love: Looking for love in all the wrong places? Instead of going to your typical hunting grounds, now is the best time to ask your pals to set you up on a blind date. Leave the matchmaking up to people who know you best. Be open to people outside your usual type.
