● General: Use your naturally warm personality to help melt the cold shoulder you've been getting from someone you work with or see daily. It's a fun challenge for which you are perfectly ready, right now! Send them a sweet email that offers some genuine compliments. Tell them what a cool person you think they are. Consider this your last chance to get through to them, because it just might be. If they don't respond to your overtures today, just move on. It's their loss.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: If finance wasn't in your job description before, it is now. You need to learn to do some juggling, and even force others to do some, too. Start by being charming. Then apply pressure as needed.
● Finances: You won't get a lot done today unless you sweep your emotions out of the way first. Dealing with them directly won't get you anywhere for once. Consider them money in a savings account and keep them strictly off limits.
● Love: When you finally confess how you feel about someone special, make sure you are clear about what you need from the relationship. Vague comments about your needs won't do you any good. Speak from the heart.
● General: Today is a good day to have a serious talk with a friend or loved one who has been acting out of character lately. Casually ask about what is new in their life and see what they say -- whatever you do, don't accuse them of anything or push them to reveal things. They will open up when they feel like you aren't going to judge them or get angry, not before. If they never spill their feelings, don't take it personally. They just don't feel like sharing yet.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Is there such a thing as being loyal and dependable to a fault? It's possible, but it's not the right time to find out. Finances dictate that you let yourself be taken for granted, at least for now.
● Finances: You finally get a response you've been waiting for. Not only is it long overdue, but it's the response you wouldn't let yourself even hope for. Whether it has to do with money or something completely different, consider it your windfall.
● Love: When going out on a first date, don't plan on heavy long-term stuff right away. Visions of wedding bells and strollers should be the last thing you think about when getting to know someone new. Appreciate the journey instead of jumping straight to the finish line.
● General: Some totally flirtatious energy is blowing into your life like a thunderstorm today. All this flirting will light a fire under you that no social situation can contain! No one will be able to resist your cute remarks and your sassy one-liners, even though a couple of the more sober people you encounter will come close. But all in all, this is going to be a very fun day -- everyone loves to be complimented, and few people are as good at giving out compliments as you are.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Deep focus is definitely an asset, unless you're cultivating it to block out reality. Don't avoid difficult issues. Facing them head on is your best way to avoid criticism.
● Finances: You'll become moody if you let yourself. Keeping busy is not only your best defense, it's your best antidote. Once that glum feeling gets you, even spending money won't help. Nothing but productive activity will exorcise the feeling.
● Love: Be totally flirtatious with someone you'd like to get to know a lot better. Leave your inhibitions behind as you giggle, wink, and give your intended knowing looks. Seductive body language can help get your point across faster.
● General: Your communication may be misinterpreted today, because you have an awful lot on your mind. But thinking about what you are going to say before you say it is not a luxury! If you want to keep all your favorite people happy with you, then you need to take a moment before you hit that 'send' button on your email. Read what you wrote one more time. Make sure you're sending it to the intended person! Distractions can cause you trouble if you're not careful.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Desperate times call for desperate measures. Those above you are finally open to your ideas. Don't throw out the kitchen sink but do take advantage of the green light. The more outrageous the idea, the better.
● Finances: Blame it on an evil double if you must, but what you're experiencing is just another part of your true self. Whether you're spending money like water or refusing to let go of a dime, your extreme stance shocks even you.
● Love: Today communication may be misinterpreted if you are careless with your tone. While you mean one thing, your sarcasm could taint the message. Be genuine with your dialog and others will be more apt to take you seriously.
● General: You have a great deal of patience today, which will help you tolerate some pretty controversial people no one else can stand. If you are working in groups, you can help people see each other's points of view more clearly and come to better decisions more quickly. You could be put in charge of a lot of work today, but the additional responsibility could open the door to major opportunities, so try to see the good before you react to the bad.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Saying there's no black or white is not the same as saying there's no right or wrong. There's just no one right answer or solution. But doing the right thing is still as important as ever.
● Finances: Your concerns are so deep you feel them even when you're unconscious. Don't let money worries dominate your life like that. Get your pride out of the way and it will be easy to see you have everything you really need.
● Love: It's okay to be indecisive when it comes to romance. There's no rule that you have to stay attracted to only one kind of person. Typecasting doesn't do you any favors in the dating game. Let your heart choose for you.
● General: Even if you have a big deadline looming today, you need to do your best to slow down and avoid rushing around. Just because you push yourself harder doesn't mean that you are going to go faster! So it's time for you to reach out for help from the people who are always offering their time or brain power whenever you need it. Let them give you what they want to give you and stop saying 'no thanks'! Your emotional health could depend on staying calm and confident.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Why are you so uncomfortable with soul searching? Without it, not much can be achieved. Look at it as being analytic if that's easier for you. Just as long as you spend time looking within.
● Finances: The last thing you want to do today is organize. Whether it's a family gathering, the kitchen drawers or your checkbook, disarray is the name of the game. The state of things will just have to prevail another day.
● Love: When you decide to call someone after a first date, make sure you're not sending the wrong message. Don't get caught up in playing the waiting game to give the impression you're not desperate. The longer you wait to return a call, the quicker you'll ruin your chance to keep the momentum going.
● General: If one of your relationships is suffering because one person isn't making enough time for the other, it's time to talk about new things the two of you can do together. You both need to expand your horizons and get out of the rut you have been in. Sit down with them. Ask them what they'd like to explore. Then, share your list. There will be at least one thing common to the two of you -- and this should be the next event you do together.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Being sensitive without being analytic is more of a curse than a blessing. Are you really picking up on problems beneath the surface or are all of your colleagues just as anxious as you are? Stay calm and look more closely.
● Finances: You can waste the whole day helping others organize and decorate, or you can spend the day doing the very same things. The only difference is in your attitude. Just because you're not making money doesn't mean it's not a valuable activity.
● Love: When you talk about new things, someone close will be impressed with your passion for unique things in life. As you chat, be sure to challenge their perceptions as well. No need to turn the discussion into a debate. Just give them enough sass to show off your willingness to stand up for your opinions.
● General: People will be easy for you deal with -- numbers, not so much! If you are dealing with any contracts or other types of documents with a lot of small detail in them today, you need to be twice as meticulous as you usually are. If you don't check and double check everything, you run the risk of missing out on a few very important details. Read the small print very carefully, because it's in the small print that the big catch is hiding. And make no mistake -- there is always a catch.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Not losing your temper takes more effort than ever. But face it, an abrasive colleague is as clueless today as they were last year, or even last month. The change is in you, and your own level of irritation. Don't start a feud.
● Finances: If you don't have any intuitive powers, fake it. Someone is impressed with the way you seem to keep one step ahead of the game. They don't need to know your credit card balance or your income.
● Love: The temptation to flirt with a married friend is there, but unless you want to be named in a divorce hearing, keep your cool. Pals in committed relationships may feel flattered when you dote on them, but their spouses won't find your behavior amusing. Avoid domestic upheaval at all costs.
● General: You are excited about getting in touch with an intellectual equal so that the two of you can do some philosophizing about current events, but you cannot really get deep until you find a quiet spot to converse. Real communication can't happen when there is a lot of background noise. So if finding peace and calm just doesn't look possible right now, change your plans. Meet up with them some other time. It's important that the setting be suitable for the conversation.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You may be obsessing over what-if's, but don't let that take your mind off of work. You still have a lot of tasks that need doing, so try to do them. Otherwise you risk a self-fulfilling prophecy.
● Finances: Your energy and the plans you have for the day are sadly mismatched. There's no shame in changing course mid stream, but why wait that long? You'll know by the end of your first cup of coffee that you've changed your mind.
● Love: All talk and no action won't help you make a love connection. If you want to speed things along, now is the right time to ask your crush on a date. It doesn't have to be an epic affair. Start with a casual event and go from there.
● General: It looks like a flighty friend is finally getting their act together, and they are ready to make the promises they couldn't make before. But before you go back to treating them with unquestioning trust, you need to clearly communicate what kind of behavior you will or will not accept from them. Your speech shouldn't come as a surprise to them, although their willingness to do as you say just might surprise you. You two are entering into a new kind of relationship.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: If you're not sure what to do about the whirlwinds all around you, stick to the basics. Being conscientious about work kills two birds with one stone: It gets the job done and helps you ride out the storm. What's not to like?
● Finances: Nothing beats a pair of rose colored glasses. Stay focused on the one person who helps you see the best in everything, including yourself. They are worth more than their weight in gold. The real trick is panning through the debris to find them.
● Love: Clarity of thought comes when you let yourself enjoy a moment for what it is. When you clear your mind of needless worries and insecurities you can appreciate what's happening with the person you're with. Lose yourself in the present.
● General: Someone you love has been doubting themselves lately, and they could use a boost in the ego department. A lot of mutual friends have noticed, and they all think you're in the best position to deliver the winning pep talk that will put this person back on the track to positive self-esteem. You can do this -- you know how to communicate creatively and supportively. Plus, you have been where they are now. There's nothing like first person experience to give you the right kind of insight.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: It's never too late to learn something new, and in this economy, you might have to. Take a cold, hard look at your office job, for obvious reasons. The present turmoil could be the blessing in disguise you've been waiting for.
● Finances: It's not easy being around overly emotional people, but it's even harder when you're the one feeling more than you should. You're just about bursting at the emotional seams. Remind yourself that money isn't worth that level of distress or euphoria.
● Love: It's a good day to let loose and have some fun. Ask your crush to be your sidekick in an impromptu adventure. Go out to lunch somewhere completely out of the ordinary. Look for capers in common activities.
● General: No matter how much you have planned to do for this day, you need to try to keep things simple. If you toss too many details into the mix, you are bound to get overwhelmed -- which could make you very cranky! This day has a lot of potential to be very enjoyable, so it would be a shame to make yourself stressed. Avoid over-complicating things or trying to make them exactly how you want them to be. Good enough is good enough, save perfection for another time.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Thinking about retirement used to just make you purr. Now it's better not to think about it at all. Anything can happen between now and then, but just keep focusing on one task after another.
● Finances: You shouldn't have to perform for friends. All you need to do today is be yourself. No amount of money, big or small, can change how you are on the inside, and those that really know you see that.
● Love: Stay busy today with projects that make you happiest. When you relax with a hobby you love, problems currently vexing you don't seem as dire. Find others who share your appreciation for your pastime and you could end up with a new crush.
