● General: All of your hard work and planning is finally starting to pay off for you in some major ways! But you need to keep going. Go the distance, and don't take your eye of the ball or slow your roll. You are so close to what you want right now that if you take even the slightest break from the action you could be making a huge mistake. You can take a nap some other day. Right now, you'll be having way too much fun to want to stop what you're doing anyway.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Kids, adventure, romance -- with all that (or similar) action, you're happy to be in the office. If only you had a peaceful day ahead of you. You'll have to keep up your stamina for a while longer.
● Finances: You're letting yourself get aggravated over the silliest of details. You shouldn't reserve your good attitude for only the loftier challenges in life. Keep your good attitude no matter what is thrown your way today.
● Love: Be bold today when making decisions. Your daring behavior excites the one person you want to attract. Let your prowess set you apart from the rest of the gang. It takes true grit to make a move.
● General: Your flexibility should take a backseat today -- you need to make up a plan and stick to it, no matter what anyone else says or promises you. You can't tolerate any distractions if you want to get through your ample 'to do' list! Your 'no compromises' manner might put a few people off, but only the people who are trying to slow you down or distract you from reaching your goals. There won't be many of those types around you today, anyway, so don't worry.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Don't be righteous. The fact that you're still standing doesn't mean you win. People are going down like flies, and not even as a result of power struggles. Consider being tolerant and kind your new peers.
● Finances: The universe puts on a show just for you, and it's quite a concert. You can hear every note, whether musical or monetary. In fact, each IOU you give out or receive plays its own sad song.
● Love: Don't be pompous when you offer to help someone with a relationship problem. No one likes to feel incompetent when it comes to love. You may be experienced but you're not the Love Doctor. Be a pal, not pretentious chump.
● General: Today, you will become involved in an intellectual argument, but it might not be one worth having. Make sure you aren't just being contrary because you want to stir up some excitement or because you just don't like the other person very much. You don't have to go out of your way to be harmonious, but you also don't have to go out of your way to disagree with them. If they are wrong, just let them be wrong. It's really not worth the energy to try and change their mind.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Being yourself at work is a luxury. Face it, you have to be Self-Lite when you're in the office. That goes for debating, too. Don't let anything get too heavy.
● Finances: Even if you have a twin, they'd have no idea what you were thinking today. You don't even know yourself. But you'll come out quite a bit ahead, even though you go through the day on autopilot. If only your regularly functioning brain could perform so well.
● Love: It can be fun debating current events with someone new. Use this opportunity to flirt instead of to alienate your new conquest. There are more important things than being right -- like being kissed!
● General: When you encounter a self-centered person who just loves showing off today, keep in mind that they are probably acting that way in order to hide some serious insecurities -- so try to have some compassion for them. Approach them with kindness and empathy instead of challenging their behavior and turning other people against them. You will go a lot further by being sensitive to their insecurities than you will by giving them a hard time.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Everything used to be extravagant, from the office furniture right down to the coffee you offered. These days, you have to make sure you can afford anything you put on the company credit card. Consider it good exercise.
● Finances: You've had a big mess to clean up and you've done an excellent job of it. Now you can start focusing on things in the future instead of cleaning up your past. It's the perfect day to start making financial plans.
● Love: Getting someone's attention sometimes calls for outrageous tactics. Dress in a sexier outfit, or make a grand gesture that won't be easily forgotten. When you take drastic measures to ask someone on a date, they appreciate the effort.
● General: All of the different emotions that are swimming around in your heart right now are combining to create a cocktail that's leaving you feeling mixed up and a little bit blue. It could take some time to work through all of what you are feeling, so you might want to reschedule one or two social outings. After all, you can't bluff a good mood. Everyone will see right through your act in minutes. Just give yourself some time. You'll be through with this soon.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: All of your big achievements for the month have to come in the next week. Buckle down and get to work now, even if it takes a supreme amount of willpower.
● Finances: One look at your budget is all it takes to tell you what you need to know. It's time to reassess how you plan on getting where you ultimately want to be. The numbers you have jotted down now certainly won't get you there.
● Love: A friend could use your compassion and warmth today. Take them out to dinner to cheer them up, or at minimum offer to listen to their problems. Sometimes all it takes to turn a gloomy situation around is a nonjudgmental audience of one.
● General: Winning gives you a great high in life, but it is a temporary one -- remember that! If you are in a competition right now, take a moment today to step out of the race and examine your gamesmanship. Make sure that you know how to be competitive without being overbearing or too aggressive. It's good to have your eyes on the prize, but you need to see the bigger picture too. You don't want to win and lose something in the process. Personal relationships need to be maintained.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Flexibility comes in handy later in the month. For now, you can't be too rigid. That's the only way to get your work done. Well, that -- plus being organized.
● Finances: Things are starting to gel. You can see now just how far your efforts have gotten you, and what you need to do to continue making progress. Staying organized and on point is your biggest challenge.
● Love: Instead of going with a sure thing, why not take a risk on someone who isn't totally safe? Try dating the underdog. It's exciting to give a diamond in the rough a chance to shine!
● General: Your intelligence is obvious to everyone around you right now, so don't be too surprised if other people start looking to you for all the answers to their problems. But you can't give them the correct answer -- they have to figure these things out for themselves. All you can really do when people ask for you advice today is flatter them, then convince them that they are capable of finding their own answers. Give them a pep talk but avoid telling them how to live their life.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: If being office manager was never one of your big hopes, then you might be wondering how you got pinned with the job. But for whatever reason, when the supply cabinet is bare, others look to you for answers. Start coming up with them.
● Finances: There's someone you've been avoiding. That sick feeling in the pit of your stomach is not worth any amount of money. Dealing with the situation directly will do you a world of good. You may pleasantly surprised to find there is no debt held against you after all.
● Love: Think of the bigger picture today when it comes to your quest for true love. Just because things don't work out with one person, that doesn't mean you're doomed to a life of dating disasters. Everybody is different in how they love and live. Go on to the next person until you find the one for you.
● General: Clear your mind early this morning and get ready for your focus to shift to a brand new challenge. But don't worry -- this is a fun challenge that you have been waiting for! Take things slowly and stay in information gathering mode until you know you have everything you need to get started. Rushing will only force you to have to go back and revise your work later on, and that's no fun. You are getting so close to a dream that it will be hard to hold back, but you've got to stay cool.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Everyone's stressed. You're all going through the same crisis together, but for some in the office, it's as much about power and ego as anything else. No matter which side you fall on, there's no need to white knuckle it alone.
● Finances: You're always the one friends come to for favors. Be careful, because you're on the verge of being tapped out. It's time to make a list of those who would be there for you in a pinch, and put it in a safe place in case you ever need to refer to it.
● Love: Lately you've been stressed about everything from work to the current state of affairs. Now is the best time to take a look at the things worthy of your worrying. Work on only the things that you can change, and leave the rest up to fate.
● General: No one likes risk, but today you won't be able to avoid it no matter how hard you try. So take a new attitude -- embrace the danger and try to see any gamble you're forced to take as an opportunity to mix things up in your routine and add some excitement to your life. Sure, a million things could go wrong, but you need to remember that no matter what happens, you can handle it! Whether the risks reward you or teach you a valuable lesson, you are moving to better things soon.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You might have lost a few things gambling, and who didn't in the past year? But you've still got a firm grip on goodwill, happiness and a sense of optimism for the future. Don't let the office nag bring you down.
● Finances: If you need some incentive to make money, try remembering how it felt to be employed rather than self employed. And if you still chafe under the authority of a boss, then give yourself five minutes to fantasize making enough to buy your way out.
● Love: Spread some goodwill today amongst those who could use it. Offer to help a friend in need with a complicated problem. Or simply pay it forward to a stranger who isn't expecting a random act of kindness.
● General: You're about to get a lot of attention -- but this popularity could end up being a burden. People may become too demanding of your time. You need to be ready to refuse invitations and beg off on social responsibilities that you don't really want to fulfill. You should feel free to spend more time with the people you actually like, not the people you want to impress. All of the people who need to be impressed by you already are.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Watch for the worst in business, even at this time of year. Some in the office feel more deserving than others. At least they won't be hiding their true colors.
● Finances: Don't jump the gun. You have a lot of research to do before you even begin to pitch your idea. Make finding the facts you need your first big investment, even if it's only an investment of time and effort.
● Love: Someone may feel more deserving of your attention today. Be compassionate towards friends who have been left out of your busy schedule. Take time out to reconnect with your buddies before it's too late.
● General: It's extra unwise to let yourself get caught up in any power struggles today. Steer clear of any turf wars or petty little arguments. It might be difficult for you to stay neutral in a certain situation, but you should do whatever you can to stay objective -- even if that means keeping your mouth shut or running from the room. People are likely to be far less angry at you for not committing than for choosing the side that isn't theirs! You need to play it safe right now.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: An old relationship is wearing you out. Why bother with the struggle? Things could change from one moment to the next if you take the initiative. Use the time of year as an excuse to compromise.
● Finances: Everyone involved in your particular endeavor seems to be trying to pull it in a different direction. None of you will ever get anywhere that way. Remind the group of the profits to be had if you all push or pull toward the common goal.
● Love: Give into your impulses today. Flirt with abandon and let your heart call the shots. Sometimes it feels freeing to give your responsible side a short vacation. Being in control all the time is overrated.
● General: Just because a recent health concern turned out to be a false alarm doesn't mean that you should go right back to eating and (not) exercising the way you were before. Right now, you should take advantage of your increased awareness to make a few changes in your life. Focus on preventative measures and on getting more active. Start playing the sports you enjoy instead of just watching them on TV. And add a few more green vegetables to your daily menu.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: It's hard to focus, but block out all distractions. All you need is one last big push to get the year wrapped up with a bow, so try to keep your mind from wandering.
● Finances: You are projecting your inner thoughts, fears or desires onto someone else, but there's no need to change a thing. Reality won't get you as far as this particular motivator will. Use it for all it's worth.
● Love: When your pals ask for relationship advice, be careful not to choose sides. Give unbiased solutions, or even better just offer a shoulder to cry on. Don't get carried away in their dramas or you could be part of the problem.
