● General: When you're put into an environment that involves delicate egos today, trust your own judgment. Be sure of what you do. You can handle this tricky situation without any missteps today, believe it or not. When you have conviction in your ideas, that faith gives you a strength that no one else can match. So if you think something is a bad idea, say so -- just make sure you're diplomatic about it, especially if it's your bosses idea! You are free to criticize right now, so take advantage of this.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You are crackling with excitement. In fact, you're headed toward instantaneous combustion. Just what has you so filled with energy? Is it romance? Adventure? No, it's simply a day away from the office. Enjoy.
● Finances: The word fit has many uses. In your case, you need them all. Being physically, emotionally and fiscally fit are equally important right now. One may be more of a challenge than the others, but be sure to put the same amount of effort into each.
● Love: The idea right now is always be prepared. Before you leave the house, check your hair, apply a little makeup, put on a clean shirt, whatever. You never know -- the hottie in front of you at the DMV might just be ready and raring to go!
● General: If you want to loan a friend some of your money, that's your choice -- but make sure that you don't get caught up in giving them any kind of long term support. You could end up supporting their negative behavior without meaning to. But if you do give them some money, you must be tolerant of how they choose to use it. If you give it, you give it -- and there should be no strings attached. Telling someone how to use it will only come off as arrogance.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Don't play out the same tired old power struggles at home as you do at the office. Your friends and family are too important for that. Remind yourself that your private life attachments are what keep you sane at work.
● Finances: Face it, nothing is as attractive to you as cash. Is it any surprise that romance is lacking in your life? You take a long, hard look at what you really want today. Wrenching yourself away from the sight of your money is the first step in a long process.
● Love: You're stubborn and loyal to a fault. Sometimes you can't (or refuse) to see the destructive nature in people. Your desire to find benevolence in the midst of evil, though , It's time to cut someone lose. You know who it is.
● General: Friends, family members and others in your life are taking their health very seriously -- everyone seems to be on a diet or jogging or doing Pilates! This new phenomenon sweeping your circle should make you re-examine what you are or aren't doing to take better care of your own health, too. Have you been getting enough rest and eating well? Keeping yourself feeling strong is your responsibility -- no one else is going to tell you how to get healthy. Start exploring new ways to exercise.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: One good thing about days off is you can pick and choose the company you keep. You're not always surrounded by like-minded people at work, but today, don't waste time debating.
● Finances: If the people around you can't read your mind, then a bill paying service most certainly can't. Don't forget to enter some important data into yours. Your lack of attention is much more than simple forgetfulness.
● Love: If your friends don't like the person you're currently hanging with, take it to heart. Right now, the people around you are more in tune with your needs than you are. Yep. It sounds crazy, but for once, you definitely don't know what's best for you -- ask for advice.
● General: Impulse buying might feed your desires for a minute or two, but the drain it creates on your wallet will be a pain you'll feel for a long, long time. You cannot opt for temporary joy when you could be looking at an even bigger debt. Start thinking more long term and pay attention to saving more money now. There are some unexpected bills and a few interesting investment opportunities coming up, and you need to have the money it takes to handle them they way you need to.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You'll be tempted by something extravagant but you'll live to regret it, and in the not too distant future. Try to remember the alarm clock of tomorrow even in the throes of enjoying today.
● Finances: You love looking at the vista of your own life. On a good day, you can see all the way to retirement. Today the view is a bit hazy. That only means you should spend time re-focusing both your immediate and long term plans.
● Love: Your finances could use a little help right now. Times are lean, and though you're not starving, keep an eye on your expenditures. Look at your bills. Can you cancel subscriptions you never use? What about that cable? If you're not using all your minutes, downgrade plans.
● General: Smile today! When you greet the world with a smile, you inspire confidence and trust in what you are doing. If you want to win people over, you need to stop playing hard to get and start being more open to questions. Make it clear that you have nothing to hide and that you are more than happy to be working with other people. Just because you got off on the wrong foot doesn't mean that things can't get better. You simply have to show that you have good intentions.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Friends and family radiate heat. If the office is a cold place, then bask in the warmth of home today. Soak it up until you have enough to last you for another work week.
● Finances: You're in a thrifty mood, even if your finances don't dictate being conservative. Whether it's become a habit or simply a response to inner fears, you have a hard time parting with so much as a dime. You don't really have to, so don't.
● Love: Your intensity is at an all-time high right now, and your presence softens even the most formidable doubter. Thanks to the stars, your ability to find humor in the most awkward situations comes to the rescue. And just in time. A total hottie is watching your every move!
● General: Don't be too rigid about things today, especially social arrangements. You might have a specific idea about what you want to do for fun, but not everyone is going to agree with you -- and they won't be flexible about it. So you're going to have to be. It's a familiar pattern with you two, and one that might be starting to get on your nerves. Do it again this one last time. Then, make a mental note that if this happens again, you two need to have a long talk.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: If work has involved too much action, home has not had quite enough. Overbearing people don't count. Come up with a plan for the day. Your best bet is a dark matinee or a walk alone.
● Finances: Your biggest achievement of the day could be as small as organizing a desk drawer or balancing your checkbook, but its small size doesn't make it any less important. You're more likely to achieve bigger goals when the environment around you makes some sense.
● Love: Wherever you're at is where it's at right now. Everything you touch turns to gold! Embrace and flaunt your independence today. Though you're the envy of all your attached friends, someone unattached will notice your swagger. You must stay in motion.
● General: Follow the most logical path of reasoning today, and don't let anyone make you believe something that seems too good to be true -- no matter how much you might want to believe them. Your heart's desire can be tough to counter when you want things to be a certain way (and they can't be). But your brain has to the one in charge right now. Facing reality now is a lot better than being disappointed later on. Stop wasting your time trying to come up with answers that just don't make sense.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Don't get caught up in the details; they can suck all the time out of the day. Instead step back and take a look at the bigger picture of your life, and what Monday morning means to you.
● Finances: You can't afford a chip on your shoulder. If forgiveness isn't in the cards, then forgetting still can be. Just don't waste another minute thinking of riches that might have been. It's just precious time stolen from money-making in the here and now.
● Love: Communicate appropriately today. Pick up the phone and schedule a visit even if it's the last thing you want to do. Be respectful. Don't patronize someone with a text or an email when the conversation calls for face-to-face interaction.
● General: Goals that are too easy to attain are never very fulfilling. So today, you need to aim a little bit higher and choose a challenge that is tough. Few things are as rewarding to your ego and as educational as a hard-won victory, so take the more difficult route -- and don't be too rigid about what you are willing to do. Open up your mind and tell the universe that you are up for anything! Look for something that puts you outside of your comfort zone and intimidates you just a bit.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: It could be time to change jobs. Watch yourself for telltale signs. If you're stressed just thinking about what awaits you at the office tomorrow, then that should ring a little bell.
● Finances: A small favor you're doing for a friend could end up costing you a fortune. Keeping it to yourself should be the least of your worries. When you're asked to be of service in some small way, stop and imagine the worst case scenario before deciding.
● Love: The direct approach is the best approach. No use dropping hints and using hand gestures -- nobody gets what you're trying to say. Instead, just say what you mean: don't mince words. Clarity is key; otherwise, a mixed message could spell disaster.
● General: Today you should start removing your emotions from conversations you have with the people who have some power over your life. They need to see you as someone who follows their intellect more than someone who goes with their gut. So while your devotion to your job or your current project is passionate, that shouldn't be the first thing you talk about. Stick to numbers and facts. Later on, once you two have developed a stronger personal relationship, you can get more personal.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You need to get away, and not necessarily to a faraway place. A day trip is all it takes to make your desk feel less like an anchor and more like a palace of productivity.
● Finances: There is a lot involved in making a major purchase. Some of the smaller details are driving you crazy. But don't rush through them, no matter how anxious you are to get it all behind you. Every last thorny issue has to be covered.
● Love: You love 'em -- the badder the better. Problem is, most bad boys and bad girls are street worn and hardened to the core. But you're totally enchanted. As long as you know what you're getting into. Expect a hard fought and most likely triumphant run; no commitment but lots of fun!
● General: No matter whether it's in terms of friendship or romance, you deserve a relationship that is based on mutual respect -- is that what you have? Take a long, hard, honest look at your relationships, today. If you don't feel like you are getting what you need, it's okay for you to be more demanding. After all, others are demanding, too, from time to time, and you usually respond very favorably. Doesn't it stand to reason that they will be responsive to your needs as well?
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You shouldn't have to watch for the worst in business on your own time. That said, watching your back isn't so uncommon. It's time to either find new friends or new ways to spend your money.
● Finances: Some consider research the boring chore that has to be done before the fun can begin, but not you. Finding facts is as much fun for you as finding deals. You get to do just that, all day long. Enjoy.
● Love: A blast from the past? Expect it. Definitely. Don't faint when a friend request from your high school heartbreak shows up in your inbox. You're older and wiser now. Can you handle it? Maybe. But that will depend on your ability to separate the past from the present.
● General: Making a new discovery about someone you recently met will brighten your day. You're surprised by them in a way you didn't see coming, and suddenly you want them to play a different role in your life than you had planned! Whenever the road you're traveling on takes a sudden detour like this, it can be disconcerting -- but for you today it will be exhilarating. This is a new perspective that you have been waiting for. You will have a new chance at reaching an old goal.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Why is it so easy to compromise at work but so hard to do the same with friends and family? Try to think of things in professional terms today, even though it's a weekend. Your solution will become obvious.
● Finances: Giving things the once-over isn't enough. You need to really dig in to get a feel for the risk involved. Going beneath the surface is just the beginning of where your research will lead you.
● Love: A clash of personalities creates sparks, big time. This is one of those love or hate situations. Either you and this person will end up marrying and having babies, or he or she will join the heap of discarded dates in the alley. You'll know it when your eyes lock gazes.
● General: If you've been living on a steady diet of coffee and stress for the past few days, you have got to get things back on track today! If you can't stomach the idea of going cold turkey and hitting the decaf right away, at least cut back -- and get some more rest. You need to take control over your schedule again, and make some more free time for yourself. There is no reason a deadline can't be changed. All you have to do is ask and you can get a little bit more breathing room.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You know what will happen if you let yourself get carried away in life's little dramas. Namely: A late morning tomorrow. Arriving on time is becoming more and more important to your career, so don't get sucked into the fuss.
● Finances: It's worth good money to be shielded from the faces behind the transactions. On the other hand, be sure you're not doing something you'd cringe at if you had first-hand knowledge of who was being affected. It could be time to be brave and find out.
● Love: Forget about spending too much time online or on the phone. It's a great day to do something for yourself. Go on a cold-weather hike, get your nails done or just take a long nap. Enjoy a few hours alone -- it's the perfect opportunity to rest and regroup.
