● General: Today you've got to blaze your own trail -- following the rest of the masses will only lead you to yawns and sudden fits of narcolepsy. No one is up to anything interesting, so why even pay attention to what they claim is 'so cool' right now? You are the one they should be following. You need to go your own way in order to get any type of stimulation or excitement in your day. Everyone else is too concerned about risk, and they just don't see things the way you do now.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Only the most insensitive boss on the planet would expect you to work late today. If you have one of them, then don't waste your time being frank with them. And if you don't, add that to your list of things to be thankful for.
● Finances: You are fired up and keeping your goals in sight. Even distant ones are pulling you forward. It doesn't take much effort on your part to stoke your ambition. In fact, you'd be wise to lower the flame.
● Love: Lately it may feel frustrating to see everyone paired up but you. But remember this isn't an ark. Love takes time, and moves according to its own schedule. Be patient and let fate do the rest. You can do this!
● General: Your insight is valuable, but it is not always completely accurate, especially when you are in foreign territory. No matter how often you look at something from a different culture, you are not going to be able to see it from the completely accurate perspective. You can listen to your instinct, but it isn't wise to act upon it. Wait until you get some outside confirmation from someone who is more involved in the scene. Follow the guidance of someone in the know.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Your subconscious was doing a lot of tallying yesterday, and it's almost worn out. Let your conscious self take over the helm. You know all that glitters is not gold, and that's never been more true than after the glitter is torn off and thrown away.
● Finances: Your more outrageous impulses can no longer be ignored. The least you can get away with is acknowledging them. If you do choose to go further, consider your money to be your steed and hold tight to the reigns.
● Love: If a romance seems to be slow moving, try speeding up the process by being more aggressive in your wooing tactics. Make your intentions known by asking your intended out on a date instead of waiting for an invitation. Take action!
● General: Fear has held you back for too long -- progress in your personal life has suffered as a result of your unwillingness to be vulnerable and open. Today you need to look ahead, pick your goal, and just go for it! You are not helping or protecting yourself -- you are holding yourself back. Whatever hurts you will also teach you. So accept the fact that you might fail here and there. Welcome the challenge of revealing who you really are to someone else.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Extremes of anything are not healthy, even good-time extremes. If you really need some peace and quiet, head to the office. Having the place to yourself is the perfect way to decompress.
● Finances: Considering yourself money-wise is not enough. It's just a waste if you don't put your particular intelligence to good use. What you're doing is the equivalent of hiding money under the mattress. Find a more profitable use for your abilities.
● Love: It's not clear whether someone you've been eyeing is interested in you. So take matters into your own hands and ask them out for coffee. After all, a mere latte is hardly a date. The more casual the invite, the easier it will be for them to say yes.
● General: You are increasingly aware of the world around you, which unfortunately means that you are also increasingly aware of the problems that exist. Do not try to tackle them all at once! It might feel like everything has to be addressed at once, but this is simply not realistic -- nor is it healthy. Make a list of what you need to do. Prioritize based on what can be dealt with first, and what needs to wait until you have more time.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Wow, you find yourself longing to be with coworkers. What could it mean? Actually, it's more about your social or private life problems than about your life at the office. Give that some thought.
● Finances: How you invest your money is as much a matter of taste as how you spend it. Someone might be shocked if they knew, and there's no reason to reveal it anyway. Staying mum makes sense on all fronts.
● Love: Sometimes it's fine to be inverted. Self-reflection comes in handy when you want to better understand why your relationships aren't working. Assess your excess baggage. Let go of past betrayals and disappointments. Free yourself to start fresh with someone new.
● General: The sting of a recent injury to your ego has finally faded away, and you are starting to feel like your old confident self again! Today is the perfect day to test your confidence by taking on a new challenge. It doesn't have to be a big one -- volunteer for a task no one else wants, get back in the gym to lose those last ten pounds, or put yourself on a tighter budget. Whatever goal you choose, just stick with it until you see results. Then, your ego will grow even healthier!
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: If you wanted fun and excitement, don't sit back and think you've had all there was to be had. More is yet to come. You could find yourself doing some spontaneous traveling. Get ready to explore.
● Finances: You're hanging on for dear life to every last penny. Feeling that it's a matter of survival doesn't really justify your fear of spending. Ease up a bit. Take a look at your savings if you need reassurance to venture back out into the world of commerce.
● Love: Today try to help someone with what they need instead of putting their request on the back burner. By giving your pal priority over your other tasks they will appreciate the gesture. Give the issue your undivided attention.
● General: Let your healthy ambition take over and lead you to a success you deserve -- the time for hiding behind the spotlight so that others can shine in its glow is over! Right now you are totally on the ball and more importantly, you have the eyes and ears of influential people. So stop hiding your abilities and toot your own horn a little bit more loudly than you think is respectable. Otherwise, you will never stand out from the crowd and get the opportunity you have been waiting for.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: OK, didn't you take care of family obligations yesterday? Not exactly. You're not off the hook yet, but then again, you have the perfect excuse up your sleeve. Spend at least some of the day at the office.
● Finances: If you're not learning something new, you're stagnating. Don't keep doing the same things with your money day after day. It's time to shake up your mind and your money simultaneously. The results are refreshing.
● Love: Getting the feeling that Cupid doesn't hang out in the same hot spots? Maybe he's been spying on you at work. Don't count out the possibility of romance with a co-worker. Chances are someone has been admiring you from afar. Keep your eyes peeled for chances to woo at the water cooler.
● General: A favorite authority figure in your life is acting unlike themselves today -- they are more concerned with saving face than with giving you guidance or inspiration. Because they aren't going to be challenging you to do your best, you're going to have to try to challenge yourself. Don't think that just because they are distracted that you get to take a day off -- are you only living to impress them? You should be living to impress yourself. You can fly on your own.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Your feelings are still buzzing like the strings of a piano. But even so, you can switch into intellectual mode and start exploring new ideas. You might come across someone who really hits a chord.
● Finances: Spending money is fun, but so is saving it. Drooling over your statements is your newest pastime. While others gnash their teeth and moan, you smile, at least inwardly. Consider yourself one of the lucky few.
● Love: Flirting with someone who doesn't notice your strategic winking, hair tossing and smiling could leave you feeling weird. However, just because you feel like a ghost doesn't mean you need to take it personally. That person wasn't the one for you.
● General: A wave of creative energy is coming at you today -- and it might hit you square in the face! Take precautions so you can make the most of it whenever it does arrive, because you might not have time to think when everything goes down. Make sure you've always got a pen and paper handy so you can jot down every little idea and innovation that pops into your head. All these little gems you write down will come in very handy in the upcoming days. There will be some gold in there!
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You had a good time, and it's all over. Let it rest at that. If you start getting the urge to do some impulse buying, remind yourself that you have no more excuses. If need be, go to work instead.
● Finances: You get a huge shock, in the form of a bill or other notice. Your head will be reeling, but it doesn't have to stay that way for long. Blow off some steam with one big outburst so you can get down to examining the details.
● Love: Looking for ideas on the best place to take someone on a first date? Perhaps a little bit of science can help. Instead of the usual bar or dance club invite your crush to join you for a memorable day at the natural history museum. You can flirt among the T-Rex or hold hands in the insect room.
● General: If your gut is telling you to heed the warnings of friends to be more cautious, you should obey it. Playing your cards more closely to your chest might deprive you of the fun of seeing how people react to your plans, but it will also prevent anyone from stealing your ideas. Someone who is very focused on money has been cozying up to you, and they might be turning on the charm to get you to spill a few secrets. You will be able to resist easily -- they aren't your type.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You're happy enough to call just about anyone a friend. So if you make it to work, you'll definitely be surrounded by pals. Just that jovial experience alone may make it worth a trip in.
● Finances: If you think no news is good news, that just means you're isolating yourself, and for no good reason. The bad news will find you no matter how little you venture out, so you might as well socialize.
● Love: An unusual comment made by a coworker may hint that they see you as more than just a colleague. Watch for subtle flirting and long glances across the room. This admiration may have been under covers for quite some time.
● General: You will achieve many goals today, rest assured. Sure, completing one of them might come down to the wire, but you'll get done what you need to get done and leave people impressed by your ingenuity and efficiency. A recent mistake you made has been forgotten by many people, so isn't it time that you forgot about it too? It's time for you to focus on the future and on all the great things that you are capable of doing. You are only getting started!
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: It's idealistic to imagine wrapping things up by the time the clock winds down. You just care too much to whip through it. But do continue with the same discipline and structure you've exercised. You just might pick up speed.
● Finances: Playing it safe has never appealed to you. That may explain your lack of a plan. But you're suddenly thinking about the future as if it may someday arrive and that changes more than your retirement strategy.
● Love: Good results come to those who persist in finding true love. Your determination will pay off as long as you stay focused on your romantic goals. Don't let yourself get distracted by negative comments from the sidelines. Believe that Cupid is on your side.
● General: Your usual tactic when drama erupts around you is to keep your head down and mind your own business. This is smart. But today, when you hear someone getting all excited about something, run to them and find out what is going on immediately. If you don't, you are sure to miss out on some amazing news! It's important to be on the front lines right now, because you'll get a huge competitive edge by being the first to know about the latest gossip and news.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: It's not too early to prepare your list of goals. Put 'make new connections' somewhere near the top. In fact, it should be on the top of every list for the rest of your career. Start today.
● Finances: What the world needs today is more excitement about the future. You're just the one to spread it, at least in your small circle. You have all the confidence and ambition others are lacking. Spread the cheer.
● Love: Your feelings toward a close friend may start to get more intense. Don't try and fight it. This new sense of affection could grow into something you both desire. Let love run its course.
● General: Everyone is going to be in a big rush today. You won't have the luxury of being able to take you own sweet time, because they all expect you to be on their time table. While you might have to pick up the pace a bit to meet the expectations of others, you may be helping them more if you push back regarding their demands. When deadlines loom, stress grows, and you could be a refreshing reminder that things don't always need to be taken so seriously.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Some think today is supposed to be a relaxed and casual day, but others just don't. You can tell which side your boss is on. Be careful what you say about their opinion, and luck may well be on your side.
● Finances: Things will never get better if you're not open to the possibility. You want things to stay just the way they are, even though they're not profitable as is. That's just childish. Be businesslike and realistic -- at least where money is concerned.
● Love: You may be helping friends more than you realize. By remaining positive and optimistic about the dating game, you inspire other single pals to keep at it. Offer advice and tips to buddies who could use extra guidance.
