● General: Make sure that you are not giving too much to your friends when it comes to the realm of finance. It's not such a bad thing to lend someone some money or treat them to lunch once in a while, but be careful to avoid financing any of their new projects or schemes. It is a kind of complication that you don't need right now. It's not about being selfish. It's about not creating a situation where misunderstandings could result. Keep things simple and social. Leave money out of it.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Believe it or not, being forceful is going out of style, even if you do it with tact. Have you ever tried simply being agreeable and charming? Once you shake off your reputation, you'll be much more effective around the office.
● Finances: Sometimes just the basics, like food and shelter, seem too hard for you. You fantasize about throwing all your things in boxes and moving home, no matter how old you are. Try a weekend away from all the stress instead. Make it a long weekend, and start today.
● Love: Today you may have to be forceful but with tact when giving a close friend relationship advice. It's never easy to tell a pal the honest-to-goodness truth, but they will appreciate your compassionate candor.
● General: Getting your emotional health in check is always important, but it's even more important now -- you need to balance things out and get a better sense of what really matters and what you should let roll off your back. You're already feeling happy about your life, but once you start sharing your affection with friends and family members, your happiness will grow exponentially. So spread the love and pass out hugs like they're going out of style.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Is someone using flattery to move up in the office? Who cares what their motives are when it's just so darn entertaining. Let yourself feel good only until it clouds your judgment.
● Finances: Your bottom line ends the week on an up note. What could be a better way to cap it off than that? Socializing with friends might fit the bill. As long as you don't break the bank, it will complete your happy equation.
● Love: Flattery goes a long way with you today, but be cautious of someone who's just buttering you up for a big favor. Compliments are only valuable when there's no hidden agenda behind the words. Look on admirers with a smidgen of skepticism.
● General: You'll have patience in great quantities today, which makes now the perfect time for you to talk to someone who always tests it! If there has been a confrontation or a difficult conversation that you have been dreading, today is the day to finally go through with it. Patience gives you perspective, and this perspective will give you the bravery you've been lacking. But the best part of this day is that you'll soon discover that you had nothing to fear in the first place.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Do you best to keep your lips zipped with your cubicle neighbors. Sometimes talking just creates more questions. Besides, all that chatter will only distract you from accomplishing anything of value.
● Finances: Being tight with money was never more vital to your financial health. Don't let yourself get all moody or start pouting just because you can't have everything you want. If you buckle down now, it will be only temporary.
● Love: Endless chatter from a crush could indicate a hidden issue. Some people use small talk as a defense mechanism when they are nervous around someone new. Help put them at ease with one of your friendly smiles, and show them your warm-hearted nature.
● General: You'll have a strong urge early on to initiate a conversation with someone you don't usually talk to -- and it's an urge you should follow! Even if you don't usually see eye to eye with this person, today you two can reach a very exciting harmony. Listen to them and work hard to respect what they say. Thinking the best of this person is suddenly easier to do. Together, you two are going to come up with a powerful idea that solves a lot of problems.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Your ship is navigating through rough seas. Not being alone on the boat doesn't make it any easier, especially since you're suddenly the captain. Maintain control by hook or by crook.
● Finances: You're in a hurry. You want more, and nothing short of doubling your assets will satisfy you. While the pace may not be what you want, you'll just have to make due with the slow gains you're making.
● Love: You are receptive to people's feelings today more than usual. Now is the ideal time to let others do all the talking. Your responsive nature helps calm and diffuse tension in the room. Be open-minded to all communication to continue flowing freely.
● General: Acclaim has been handed out, and your reputation is now shining more brightly than ever -- and justly so. Other people in your work or school life are going to start looking to you for answers, so be prepared for your presence to be in demand! But instead of handing out answers left and right, empower the people who come to you to find their own answers. Your encouragement will help them follow in your footsteps and become a more successful person.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Some projects are more fun than others, but unfortunately, you don't get to pick and choose. Finish ones you've already started, even if they're nothing to show off about.
● Finances: Your intuition and your body are working together. Your subconscious is poking you in the ribs. Yes, you need more sleep and there's no time like the present to get it. Making money will be that much easier once you're rested.
● Love: Your heart knows no bounds. This endearing quality attracts more than just the ideal mate. You could also be a bulls' eye for lotharios just out for a good time without a commitment. Guard your secrets well until you can discern the best from the deadbeats.
● General: Are your goals set in stone? They had better be! The more solid they are, the faster you will be able to reach them. A lot can be achieved today, but only if you know exactly what you need to do -- write everything down if you need to. This is not a day to just go with the flow or follow your mood. There is too much at stake for you to just do whatever you feel like doing, whenever you feel like doing it. You need to be a little bit more disciplined than usual.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You may be taking a client out to dinner. Make sure it's to an unusual spot. You want to sell yourself as anything but run of the mill, and every detail counts.
● Finances: Some of the things on your to-do list simply feel like chores, but others energize you. Use the excess from the latter to accomplish everything that needs to get done today, from the exciting to the mundane. Your savings depends on it.
● Love: Today may call for some soul searching. Decide what you really want from your next relationship. Do you want a heavy duty romance, or would you prefer to keep it light without any commitment? Be honest with what you need right now.
● General: You are projecting an aura of calm today -- so what if deep down inside you are frazzled and frayed? Focus more on what people perceive you to be, not on who you really are -- especially since what they are going to perceive will be so helpful to your reputation! Accept all compliments and don't even think about making any self-deprecating jokes. As far as you're concerned, you believe that you are as big a rock star as everyone else says you are.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: If you're not a foodie, going out to interview lunches can be a bit uncomfortable. Eat a little by yourself before the event so you can be fully engaged in the dialogue. Be sure to stick to healthy snacks.
● Finances: It would be great if you suddenly had all the riches you wanted, but that's not the way things work in real life. The progress you're making is realistic, not fantastic, so don't let yourself become frustrated by it. Just keep plugging away.
● Love: Keeping the harmony among feuding friends is harder than it sounds. Offer to mediate between pals who could use an objective observer. Refrain from taking sides. You're there to allow a free flow of communication, not to prove one side right over the other.
● General: You are feeling even more passionate and intense about an issue that matters a lot to you, and this high level of focus will help you make a lot of headway in defending or promoting it. You haven't always wanted to try and win other people over to your way of thinking, but today you will see that they might be finally willing to admit that they are not on the right side of things. Be gentle when you talk to them and don't try to push them to change too much too quickly. Just plant a seed.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Just how well are you going to do? Usually, the outcome is up to you. It's the rare situation that is out of your control. This could be one of them, so try to compromise before your opponent realizes they have upper hand.
● Finances: Consider yourself a financial GPS device. You know money is out there somewhere, and it might as well find its way into your pocket. All it needs is a bit of guidance from you and your intuition, of course.
● Love: Take the initiative and ask someone you've been admiring out on a casual get together with friends. Group outings are a great way to socialize without taking too much of a risk by asking him or her out on a more intimate date. Test the waters before diving in head first.
● General: Today it might be a good idea to adopt a more analytical attitude, especially when it comes to dealing with people you don't like. If they rub you the wrong way, so what? They don't have an impact on your life, so skip past them and never look back. If you pay any attention to folks who have nothing nice to say, you are giving them more power than they deserve over your life. Your time and energy should be devoted to the people who bring out the best in you.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Focusing on smaller issues is downright boring, but your job can't be all perks. Speaking of, make a big pot of coffee if that's what it takes to tell yourself: I can do this.
● Finances: Energy levels change so much over the course of the day, you may even wonder if a physical exam is in order. Actually, the problem is how closely tied to money your energy is. Don't let yourself get too excited, nor too devastated, either.
● Love: Mundane activities don't have to be dull if you share them with someone you want to get closer to. Invite your crush to join you on errands. Even standing in line at the post office can be fun with the right sidekick.
● General: You know you need to get a little more discipline in your life, and today brings a great opportunity for you to find a way to do it -- without depriving yourself of anything! You'll be much happier if you live your life with guidelines. You know the rules. You know what to do and what not to do, and need never again wonder if you are doing something right. Challenge yourself to be more disciplined, and you will impress yourself with how strong you can be.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Spending office money used to be a lot of fun, but it simply is no more. Put a good spin on your new budget. Consider yourself old faithful when you look for good discounts.
● Finances: You want to change everything, from your home to your career, all at once. Others will try to convince you you're overreacting, but that's not really the point. Indulge in any kind of rant that honestly addresses how you feel.
● Love: Perseverance pays off but don't let your relationship goals consume you. There's a difference between fascination and obsession. Don't scare away potential dates by stalking them online, texting them hourly or following them around town. Show you're interested without provoking a restraining order.
● General: Business as usual will leave you bored as usual today. But the good news is that you will have someone on your side who's just as bored as you -- and just as eager to find a fun way to mix things up! Skip past all of your right brain thinking and focus on more creative ways to get things done. Team up with this person today, and it could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Turn on the music and take off your shoes -- relaxation is always a good way to get the brainstorms going.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: The danger isn't past yet. Be on your best, most productive behavior today. The moment you feel bored, find something meaningful to do. Have no doubt: You are being watched.
● Finances: Your balance doesn't accurately reflect what you really have. You won't be fooled by the number, but you will let yourself be taken along on a lofty fantasy. Imagine all the ways you'd spend the extra.
● Love: Show your eccentric side to someone new today. While some people may find you odd, your crush thinks of you as a breath of fresh air. Your quirky behavior sets you apart from the competition. Relish your uniqueness.
● General: Being attracted to beautiful things does not mean that you are shallow, so don't feel guilty if you show a preference for pretty things today. When you are surrounded by things that make you feel good, you are apt to start experiencing some more romance in your life. The world is a beautiful place to share with someone else. This is a wonderful day to take a stroll outside or even just sit and look out the window with someone you really care about. Enjoy the beauty together.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Loving your job takes some work on your part. Make a list of the pros and leave out the cons. It does not require poetic license, but it does call for some creativity. Then tack it on your cubicle wall for ease of reference.
● Finances: You appreciate many things that others don't. That means you value things that have no price tag. Don't stop doing that, but don't let things like music and poetry take the place of bricks and mortar, either.
● Love: Give into your artistic tendencies when wooing someone new. The more creative you are, the more impressive your actions will be. Paint a scene from your crush's favorite movie. Make a playlist of songs you love, complete with a booklet of liner notes. Put genuine effort in your gesture.
