● General: Try not to commit yourself to anything significant today. It's best for you to stay loose and ready for any opportunity or invitation that comes your way. It's really not an ideal day for first dates or big exams. You're not in the mood to be under any kind of scrutiny. In fact, you'd prefer to do your thing and stay unencumbered by expectations. This is a powerful phase for you, and you're going to need all the elbow room you can get to make your next successful move.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)

● Love: The best way to help others today, is to allow them to make mistakes. When you take your friends and lovers off of the pedestal you placed them on, it's easier for them to be human. Everyone is capable of a blunder or two, even you. Cut them some slack.
● General: Being alone may bring you a lot of comfort right now, but being among other people will feed your soul in an extremely rewarding way. So don't go solo right now if at all possible. Meet up with people, any people! Sometimes, you need to pop out of your shell whether you want to or not.

Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)

Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: When trying to make sense of the past month, go for intellect rather than emotion. You might have felt terrible but had quite a few accomplishments. And if the opposite is true, that's good to know, too.
● Finances: You'll be helping build good memories in little minds, so be sure you put as much into it as you can afford. It's the wrong time to be cheap or thrifty. As long as it's not spending on guaranteed leftovers, go whole hog.

● General: Keeping a tight lid on your emotions might not be possible today, but you do need to at least control your temper. Don't fly off the handle when someone says something annoying or accusatory -- take a deep breath, count to ten (or twenty if you have to), and be the bigger person. You need to find a way to let this person know how you feel that isn't combative or insulting. You have the manners of a diplomat -- when you give yourself time to dig them up.

● Work: It's time to let go of the past and everything closely tied to it. You'll have to be adaptable to navigate in the near future. But for now, enjoy a slight breather.
● Finances: It takes a bit more effort now to have a good time than it did when you were young. Okay, a lot more effort. But being on the other end is more fun than you ever dreamed it would be. It truly is better to give than to receive. Stock up now.
● Love: It's a good day to do research and listen to your instincts when making decisions of the heart. Treat a new romance like an important investment. Weigh the pros and con, assess the risks and go from there.
● General: If you want to take a slower pace in your life today, then do so -- especially if people are telling you to go faster! Others are moving at the pace they want, so why don't you have the right to do so too? Do things in a way that pleases you, not in a way that is fastest. Want to talk to someone? Then talk to them. Don't send a text or an email. Sure, it might be faster, but is it better? Misunderstandings are easier to clear up when you are looking in someone's eyes.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Your regular way of doing things will be turned on its head Try to practice being open-minded now. If you can't experiment or learn something new, you'll be lost.

● Love: Assess your relationship issues before you start dating. Take a hard look at all that emotional baggage you've been lugging around. Make a decision to let go of past betrayals, disappointments and heartbreaks. The next person in your life deserves a fresh start, and so do you.
● General: Creating beauty and harmony in your home should be your number one priority right now. Whether you just get some fresh flowers and put them in a vase on a bookshelf or start on a major remodeling project, the time is right for taking your living environment and turning it into the ideal refuge from the outside world. You have some creative ideas, so share them with the rest of the people you live with. They are open to and excited about making a change.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Work is not exactly a good time. It takes some creativity just to stay at your desk. You have some fun to look forward to, but for today, get ready to work.
● Finances: You love sweets but you wouldn't break open your piggy bank just to buy them. You bring the same common sense approach to what you purchase today. Just don't forget that you are generating an image of yourself that others will remember forever.
● Love: Your daily routine could be disrupted by thoughts that keep making you smile -- in that naughty way. Fantasies are fun, but try to refrain from slipping off to your happy place too often during the day. Get your work done first, then daydream all you want.
● General: Making an attempt at something new, even if you fail at it miserably, is very important for you right now. Trying is what teaches you the most -- far more than success would teach, actually. So don't get caught up in looking good. The sooner you get comfortable making a fool of yourself, the more you will learn throughout your life. So if your daily routine is all about winning recognition, then you need to make some adjustments. You won't grow if you never let yourself take a risk.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Get ready. Someone in charge is looking at cleaning the house. Whether you stay put or get swept out with the dust depends on just eight short hours of work. In other words, today, make every minute count.

● General: It's only natural to want to listen to others reminisce about the past right now, but you should try to focus on the future. There is a world of opportunities out there for you, so how are you going to spend the next twelve months uncovering each and every one of them? Sit down in a quiet place for a few minutes today and write yourself a letter, to be read a year from now. List what you want the year to bring -- and don't forget to compliment yourself on the year that has passed.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Lines of communication have been a bit clogged. That's what happens during times of uncertainty. But if you try to keep an open mind, you can connect with others and exchange important ideas.

● Love: Connect with others and you could end up closer to finding your next relationship. When you use your communication skills to get people to know people better you open a door to romantic possibilities.
● General: You already have a fairly healthy respect for money, but right now you need to be extra cautious about how you treat it and spend it. Make sure all your credit cards are in the right place and haven't expired. Sort out your loose change from all your couch cushions and start using it buy things. When you organize your money and get it under control, you show the universe that you can handle the responsibility of having more money -- and it might just send some your way!
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: This period is looking more and more attractive, if only in comparison to the old one. Take advantage of the opportunity to be inspired. Instigate some long-overdue changes.
● Finances: There is an informal air all around you that makes it hard to focus on what really matters. Some think fun and games comes but once a year, but you don't go for such foolishness. You are playing your own devilish, misplaced version of Scrooge when you force others to stay focused on money matters.

● General: You can't spend all of your energy making other people happy. Switch your focus to that person you see every morning in the mirror and start working harder to make yourself smile. Do at least one nice thing for yourself today -- cancel a meeting you've been dreading, take yourself out to dinner at your favorite spot, splurge on a nice gadget you've had your eye on. You have a right to doing something for yourself every once in a while, so don't feel guilty about it.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: It's hard to focus, and you hardly feel you should have to. But if you get nothing else out of being at your desk, get some sense of what you want for the future. Let the thoughts crowd in.
● Finances: People are busy picking out camouflage and veils and all manner of illusions. Don't let money hold you back from the fun and games. Giving yourself enough time to shop wisely today will guarantee your fun tomorrow.
● Love: Treat yourself well today -- you deserve it! Indulge in an extra luscious dessert, or pick up your favorite take out dinner. Better yet, sign up for a relaxing massage or soothing spa visit.
