● General: It's time for you to start thinking about how you can get more physically active. Going to the gym a few days a month or going for a jog every other morning is great, but you'll have a lot more fun with it if you can integrate your physical exercise and your free time. Pick up a sport. Start learning how to roller skate with a friend! There are all sorts of ways to burn calories and get your heart beating faster. You've got the creativity to figure out how to do it. Use it.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You've been putting so much into work that it's hard to find any interest in your private life. Look at projects around the house that need attention, if that's the only way to jump-start your enthusiasm.
● Finances: Keeping things short and sweet is not just for effect. The less you give away, the less money you'll bleed. Running out the mouth just doesn't make financial sense, so keep mum.
● Love: There's a new person on the scene who's eager to make your acquaintance. Be open to meeting people outside your usual social circle and your paths may cross sooner than you think.
● General: Just because you're desperate to go out and have some fun doesn't mean that you aren't allowed to be choosy about what you end up doing! So don't just hop aboard any bandwagon headed for funtown -- make sure that whatever new adventure you embark on today will be something that you really enjoy. Your time is precious, so don't waste it doing something just for the sake of being busy. If the perfect plan doesn't come together you'd be better off just taking a nap!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Here it comes: The time of year you're expected to rush out and make purchases. But this year is a bit different than the ones you've gotten used to. Stay within your budget, and start early.
● Finances: You're just not yourself today and you might as well make the most of it. Walking around in someone else's shoes has never made more sense, or been so easy. Look at things extra closely from your new point of view.
● Love: You shop around for the latest gadgets, why should finding your next lover be any less important? Take your time comparing possible suitors and take them out for a series of test drive dates. Only make a decision once you've weighed all the variables.
● General: The acquaintances you make today will be with you for a long time, so it would be in your best interest to be completely genuine from the moment you make eye contact. It can be tempting to hide behind standard social roles and non-threatening small talk, but it's not the right move for you to make today. Engage with other people. Unless you make an effort to really know who they are, why would they make an effort to really know who you are?
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: There's one surefire way to save money this year: Communicate. Why waste time and money on things no one wants? Do more than fish around for hints. Be downright blunt.
● Finances: You're meeting people wherever you go. You can't walk out the door without bumping into someone you know. Equally effortless is generating new ideas just by rubbing shoulders with them.
● Love: Your talkative and fiery nature may get you into trouble today with someone new. Sometimes it's difficult to know when to continue speaking and when to go mute. Instead of yammering on and on, pay attention to facial expressions for clues.
● General: A dramatic incident early on today will give you an interesting insight into someone you don't know very well -- you'll want to make sure you have some tissues handy, because they could react a lot more emotionally than you would have thought they would. You might not know what to make of this person's true colors, but you'll love discovering they aren't as perfect as you thought they were. You will be the strong one, today. Everyone else will follow.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Emotions are easily aroused today. Someone has to push the atmosphere into the warm zone, and it might as well be you. Conjure up some good memories if you need motivation.
● Finances: The point of all your efforts really isn't making money. Once you get your priorities straight, the financial aspects will take care of themselves. Until then, spend some time interpreting your inner chatter.
● Love: A good memory can impress someone you want to get to know more intimately. When you remember special events, stories and favorite hobbies of your crush, it shows you care enough to take notice and pay attention to their every word.
● General: The universe is sending you a huge amount of positive energy -- which means that you can have fun doing anything right now, so bring on the adventures! Even your regular routine will offer you some fun surprises here and there, from an unexpected run in with a charming friend to a funny coincidence that bonds you with a group of strangers. This is one of those days when you feel one with the world around you. It's a great day for making new friends.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You don't need anything fancy today. Just being out of the office has you so happy you could have a good time out of anything. A cup of coffee and the paper is just the tip of the iceberg.
● Finances: You need to spend time with your friends. No, not the ones you simply socialize with, the ones who are really near and dear to you. Money should have nothing to do with which list each person is on. If it does, start the editing now.
● Love: Enjoy learning about your current crush today. Half the fun in dating involves the newness of a potential romance. Discover their interests, passions and peeves. Engage them in discussion on everything from pop culture to politics. Give them an opportunity to reveal their hopes and dreams without judgment.
● General: Your high-spirited attitude will enable you to challenge someone in a constructive and positive way today, so don't be shy about objecting to someone's silly or illogical statements. While a lesser person might jump down someone's throat for this, you know that it is much wiser to focus on the good in what they have to say, not the bad. When you help lift people up, you will get a lot more cooperation -- and your popularity will stay just as high as it always has been.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Now's the time to fashion a budget for the coming weeks. No matter how much you wish you were somewhere else, doing something else, make it a priority. If you leave it to tomorrow, you'll be a day late and a dollar short.
● Finances: You always do your best, but sometimes that's not enough. Today it is, no matter what you end up making at the end of the day. It really is the effort that counts more than the money for a change.
● Love: Today you may feel an overwhelming sense of purpose. Act on it now while you have the determination to drive you further. Don't let anything distract you from your goal whether it's wooing that hottie you've been crushing on, or something even bigger. You can do it!
● General: You are feeling the urge to start a new project right now, which is wonderful -- but keep in mind that you have sole control over how things will turn out. It can be either great or awful, so just make sure you have the time you need to devote to this new task so that you can ensure its success. The amount of energy you put into it is directly proportional to the level of satisfaction you will get when it's finished, so don't start something unless you know you can finish it.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Cheer up, life really isn't as bad as all that. Even if things feel tense in your relationships, you'd have to admit they're not all tanking. And when it comes to work, well, business is business.
● Finances: Don't share your innermost self. The nuggets found there are for you and you alone. You can talk about lots of things without giving away your most valuable asset: The real you.
● Love: All relationships revolve around a healthy balance of give and take. One person can't have complete control or else it throws the whole partnership out of whack. The sooner you learn how to compromise to keep the peace, the smoother your next romance will go.
● General: Someone needs some help today, and you should try to come to their rescue. Not only could acting selflessly today create a greater gain for you later on down the road, it will strengthen your relationship with this person and put them in your debt -- which could be extremely useful very soon. Your motivation doesn't have to be one hundred percent altruistic for it to be effective. It's okay to want there to be something in it for you. A win-win situation is a great situation.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: No good deed goes unrewarded. Don't let today's ugliness sour your desire to help others. The best of the season is yet to come, and so is the worst. Let this toughen your hide.
● Finances: Your business life is awash in details that need to be dealt with, and each one is as important as the one that came before it and the one that comes after it. You're tempted to ignore a few, but that would be too big of a risk.
● Love: Be careful not to butt into a friend's personal life. Even though you have good intentions, your nosiness could be misconstrued as something more annoying. It could get ugly if you don't back away from the situation quickly.
● General: You are not feeling totally in synch with your friends right now, which could cause some social awkwardness. One person in particular is causing some tension and you just don't have the patience for it. Dealing with all of the insecurities of someone who is always fishing for compliments isn't fun: It's tiring. So take a vacation from this person and try spending time alone for a while. You can get a lot done, and you'll have more fun doing it by yourself.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Remember the old song, Whistle While You Work? You could stand to do a bit of that today. You may have plenty of chores to do, but you might as well have fun doing them.
● Finances: If only you could think deeply about an issue, you're sure you'd be able to make the right choices. As it is, you can't get very far with any particular train of thought. Don't put any money down until your head clears.
● Love: Romance always goes better with fun. Keep your dates light with childlike activities like visiting the zoo or an amusement park. Push each other on the swings. Go to an ice cream parlor and share a banana split. Let your inner kid play Cupid.
● General: You've been interested in getting more involved with your community, but concerned that it will take over your life. Don't worry -- getting involved doesn't have to turn your entire life on its ear and take up valuable social time. Just be honest with yourself about what you want out of this experience, and try not to over commit yourself just because you know it will make you look good. There's no point in helping out unless you're doing it to help others, not to help yourself.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: All the worry you've bottled up over office terminations could be erased with one shopping spree. But do something more responsible than that to blow off steam and restore stability.
● Finances: You attract people who are like you, not people you imagine you are like. If the folks around you seem fly-by-night, then take a long, hard look at your own investment strategies. You come away with more clarity about just how you handle money.
● Love: Don't misinterpret postponement as rejection. Just because someone may cancel plans with you isn't cause for alarm. A variety of reasons often pop up that have nothing to do with you. Give the person a second chance to reschedule the date.
● General: There is a big discovery that you haven't made yet, and you are running the danger of this discovery giving up and going away! So today, you need to wake up your adventurous spirit and let it be in charge. Not only is it an important part of who you are, it's an invaluable way to keep your life exciting. Follow any clues that pop up and don't give up if the trail gets cold. Something is just beyond your vision, and you need to keep stabbing in the dark until you hit something.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You don't need to conjure up any advanced ideas to enjoy the day. Simply enjoy your freedom from work. If it's been so long you've forgotten how, start by doing nothing.
● Finances: Sparks are flying, and they're all of the intellectual variety. You're coming up with one good idea after another. All it takes is a bit of creativity to turn them into a nice nest egg.
● Love: Today you may feel a bit of electricity pass between you and your crush. This could be the spark that ignites a new passionate love affair. Flirt without worry. This time the flames of love are about to seriously heat up.
● General: Today your vision for your future is clouded by wishful thinking and overly high hopes. It's good to be positive about where you want to take your life, but right now you might only be hearing what you want to hear -- and that is a dangerous road to go down. Reach out for reality check from a good friend or family member. They have an objective perspective and can help you wake up to what is realistic. They won't be raining on your parade. They'll just be clearing your vision.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Some working days can feel like one big illusion. One day your freedom is brand new, and in 24 short hours, then it's gone again. Don't waste the day feeling like you've been robbed.
● Finances: Don't wait until the last minute. Being overwhelmed should be your motivator of last resort, not your only choice. Remember that slow and steady wins the race. In other words, take care of basic money issues as they come up.
● Love: Flirty behavior can be ambiguous. While you think laughing and winking will be interpreted as being interested sexually in someone, the other person could miss the hint altogether. Instead of relying on hints, perhaps the direct approach will get you farther.
