● General: Try not to let your focus on future adventures or travel plans keep you from getting the job done right today. You have to try to stay focused on the present and live this day conscientiously. Too many people are depending on you right now, and you are capable of blowing their expectations out of the water. One way to get your mind more focused on the here and now is by promising yourself that you can have an hour or two of time to goof off later in the afternoon.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Now is the time for visions, if ever there was one. What do you see for yourself in the future? You'll have to come up with some goals, if you want to achieve any. Start the planning process.
● Finances: Skies are blue and you have no real problems to deal with. It's smooth sailing. How dull. You'll discover today just how much you thrive on 'issues'. Instead of getting frustrated, find a way of getting motivated without them.
● Love: Your people skills may be tested today. Use this opportunity to get to know new people a little better. Listen and chat with genuine interest. Don't let differing opinions get in the way of a budding friendship.
● General: You can reach an important compromise in a power struggle with an authority figure if you follow the path of least resistance. But this isn't the same as giving in to them -- you will soon see that your goals can align if you simply make a slight modification. Besides, making this small detour could put you in the right place at the right time for something even better! Being more flexible and adopting a more long-term vision will put you in a better position to negotiate in the future.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You're ready to throw off your conservative personality for something that suits you better. It doesn't have to be anything outrageous, but your office persona could stand a little spicing up.
● Finances: People around you are oozing with compassion, and it's really getting on your nerves. You don't want or need anyone's sympathy. You love an opportunity to pull yourself up by your bootstraps. Ignore them and get started.
● Love: Your conservative nature could be in direct conflict with an outrageous person today. Instead of getting into an awkward shouting match, write down all your frustrations to look at a later date when you are calmer.
● General: It's been difficult to muster up support for the way someone you care about has radically changed. Their life is different, but it doesn't look like much of an improvement from where you're standing. If you don't believe they are moving in the right direction or you are having trouble accepting who they've become, you should address it today. Decide once and for all if you are going to give your unsolicited advice, or if you are just going to let them keep going down this path.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Every day, right about now, you start wishing you could start over. Tomorrow won't find you suddenly radically changed, but you can make some adjustments for the better. Give it all some deep thought.
● Finances: Don't bother trying to communicate. No one will listen. That leaves you with the lion's share, because no one else is taking your tips seriously. You can believe that when you try the exact same kind of communication another day, those around you will be all ears.
● Love: Being intellectual doesn't mean you have to act like a snob. Being smart can be sexy when you show off your knowledge in a non know-it-all way. Share a crossword or play strip trivia. Give your genius status the sexy slant it deserves.
● General: Dreaming about making a change in your life is nice, but unless you actually do it, you are just wasting time and fooling yourself. Imagining how things could be different is a fun way to stay flexible and open-minded -- but if all you do is think about change all day long you are never going to make any. Action is required to bring dreams to life, so it's time to roll up your sleeves and get to work. People can help if you let them in on your plans.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You have the chance to make a thoughtful list of goals instead of the usual one full of wishful thinking. Sit down and come up with a game plan for your career, if it helps you think of it in those terms.
● Finances: Your mind is wandering into frightening territory. You're sensing ghosts and goblins in your near future. You'll be glad to come back to reality and back to work. Making money never felt so comforting.
● Love: Knowing the light in others helps you to keep a positive perspective in even the bleakest of moments. It's easy to get bogged down in negativity when things aren't going your way. But understanding that everyone has the potential for goodness will get you though the worst.
● General: You are in a new situation right now, and it's very exciting! But you are still learning the ins and outs of what you need to do and what you can expect, so try to be patient with yourself -- understand that it may take more time than you thought to get totally comfortable with this new aspect of your life. Rushing through the process of adaptation is only going to frustrate you -- and deprive you of a valuable journey. You're getting a chance to know yourself in a whole new way. Savor it.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Ego clashes, pride, lust for power -- these are a few of the things you may want to let go of in the coming days. What less obvious ways would you like to change for the better? Spend time at your desk thinking about it.
● Finances: Be cautious about spending, even if it's only on penny candy. Do your research before you buy so much as a cup of coffee. Shade grown, fair trade -- the social obligations are bigger than the financial ones, and that's just the start to your day.
● Love: Be adaptable when it comes to unexpected obstacles in your love life. Nothing in life runs smoothly, why should matters of the heart work any differently? Go with the flow and try not to resist change when it surfaces.
● General: This is going to feel like a long, slow day -- but it is also a day that offers you plenty of time to experiment with new ways of reorganizing your stuff. Doing things in a different way might put off the people who think they know you inside and out, but don't let that stop you. When you're trying to figure out who you are, you cannot be held back by who other people think you are. You have to forge your own way in life, so why not start now?
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Don't worry, your whole routine isn't changed, just the last two weeks. Even a creature of habit like you could get used to it, though, and just when things get back to normal, too. Be open-minded and try to enjoy it now.
● Finances: There is no such thing as money separate from human beings. Without people, it has no value. Your relationships are an important part of your financial health. They're either as good as gold or taking you down with them. Do some analysis.
● Love: Today you may find order in chaos. Sometimes we see solutions to nagging issues thanks to a hodgepodge of ideas. Be inspired by the whirlwind of activity around you. Let your mind wander to the answer you seek.
● General: Communication will be fun but a little bit complicated today. A culture clash could occur when you are trying to talk to someone from an extremely different background. The two of you might waste a lot of time talking to each other instead of listening to each other. Don't miss out on the chance to stir up some inspiring and energizing ideas that could perk up your creativity and get you motivated to make a change in your life. This person is someone you should work to understand.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: It's easy to get along well with others during these oddball, in-between days. Try to imagine extending that into the rest of the month. Once you understand the basic trick, the rest if a breeze.
● Finances: You can't be all things to all people. You can't even come close. In fact, more than one thing on your agenda is too much. Stick with the one project you currently have and hope for flexibility another day.
● Love: Getting along well with others comes easy to you today. Your rapport is especially good with a current crush. Give your flirting skills a workout and see where it might lead. You never know when a deeper connection is right around the corner.
● General: A frustrating person who usually makes you cringe is actually going to make you think today. They have radical views that can be hard to swallow, but there is some brilliance in them -- a fact you will finally start to see more clearly. You might surprise yourself by coming to this person's defense, but you won't be surprising them. Despite the adversarial nature of your relationship, they always knew you would recognize a good idea when you heard it.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Enough is enough, but it's not over yet. Too much time with family, especially older relatives, can be just as unhealthy as too much time at work. But for the sake of balance in the next few days, definitely choose the office.
● Finances: It's easy for you to pull a rabbit out of your hat or find your way out of a chained box, blindfolded. You can even divert financial disaster with the snap of your fingers. Just how you do it should remain a mystery.
● Love: Unexpected outbursts could end up making you look childish to someone new. Think before speaking, especially in a heated discussion. Your passionate views will only impress your crush if you remain calm, cool and collected.
● General: It's a good day to hang out with your friends and just be together -- right now it's easier to have a good time when you are not trying so hard. So skip the party planning and get right to the party! Call up a few folks and tell them to meet you at a certain place at a certain time -- then see what happens. There is so much creativity swarming around your group of friends that you guys are sure to cook up some fun without any trouble whatsoever.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Do what you can to connect. It's a great time for catching up on lunches or other long-forgotten obligations. In fact, it's not a bad time to reach out to total strangers, for that matter.
● Finances: It's hard to get excited about facing your day. The best way to approach it is to get it over with. But until it's done, try to enjoy the things small change can buy, like a decent cup of coffee or a phone call with a friend.
● Love: It's easy to impress others when you stop acting like the ultimate entertainer and just be yourself. There's no need for extra theatrics when your own personality is intriguing enough. Let your true self shine.
● General: You'll be in the mood to mix things up today, which is healthy --- changing your approach or style every now and then is a good idea. Just be sure not to stray too far from your usual routines, or else you will get too preoccupied with managing people's reactions! Shop at the same stores for your new outfits, but pick out some new colors you don't usually wear. Change is good, but it shouldn't come too abruptly right now. You should always stay true to who you are.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: It's time to think of the future, and put it in writing. Things may or may not go as planned, but that piece of paper in your hand will at least give you some piece of mind.
● Finances: You can tell what others are going to do one step before they do it. Don't let on. Others would definitely be impressed, but you would only be shooting your financial self in the foot by bragging.
● Love: Plans may not go well on a date but that doesn't mean you should throw in the towel. Everyone makes mistakes when they're nervous. Cut yourself some slack and relax a little. Remember that dates are supposed to be fun not high-pressure auditions.
● General: Someone who has been trying to get to know you a little bit better is going to make a major overture today, so be ready to receive increased amounts of their attention! They won't accept shallow small talk from you this time -- they want to know what you really want out of life and what you want out of the people in your life. You may be sidetracked by their questions, but that doesn't matter. You should give them all the energy you can right now.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: It will be a great day to come up with your game plan. But don't bother sharing your vision with others. Not only would that be spilling the beans, but they won't be particularly changed by it. Keep mum.
● Finances: You are feeling stretched to the limit. Instead of indulging the feeling, give yourself a dose of gratitude. You may not have masses of gold coins but you're covering the basics. Remind yourself of what you have, even if it's only access to credit.
● Love: Your high energy is intoxicating to all those who come into contact with you today. Your enthusiasm throughout the day is contagious. Share this intensity with someone you'd like to get to know on a more intimate level.
● General: There is a lot of divergent energy around you right now, and it could be hard for you to focus today. At work, making decisions that affect other people could be difficult and confusing, so it's best to hold off on those until another day (or ask someone else to do it for you). In your social life, you could loose concentration when a special someone is talking to you and miss out on an important revelation! Get used to asking for people to repeat things or explain things one more time.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Give yourself a much-needed and well-deserved break. Daydreaming about the future is perfectly legitimate today. It's not unrealistic to assume that some of these daydreams may just come true.
● Finances: You never thought you'd be stuck in the same trap you've seen others snagged in, but here you are. Whether it's a credit card you can't pay or a loan that's due, you're having a sudden sense of compassion for your fellow passengers.
● Love: Just because you haven't found your soul mate yet doesn't mean you're failing in love. Romance takes luck and time to develop. You can't force it to happen when you want it to. Give yourself a break and relax -- Cupid will find you soon enough.
