● General: If any kind of conflict erupts in your group today, you have to be frank and open about how you feel. By communicating honestly, you will show people that you aren't trying to gain anything -- you are just trying to make things better for everyone. This is not the time to get suspicious or self conscious about your feedback or criticisms. A compromise will take time to arrange, but your input will help it happen sooner, and it will be a better solution for everybody involved.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: With everything going wrong at work, you'll wish you were sick today. The sooner you accept that you are not, the better off you'll be. Shake off any subliminal baggage and get down to business.
● Finances: Keeping to the grindstone is harder than ever before. You can do it, though, if you act as your own mentor, coach and cheerleader. You know what you have to do and it's more important than the family matters that are dominating your thoughts.
● Love: Maybe it was a weird dream, but you wake up this morning feeling a bit disconnected -- as if you can't separate the subconscious from reality. In this twilight zone, you're apt to notice hotties of a different sort. Today couldn't present a better time to meet fresh faces.
● General: It's extremely important for you to avoid putting your career objectives ahead of your personal life right now -- this isn't the right way to prioritize your time, and setting your own feelings aside is not going to pay off. You have needs that must be met, and you must put yourself first right now. The universe knows that you deserve more challenges and fulfillment in your life -- and it's time for you to show the universe that you know it too. Put yourself first.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: People are getting a little jealous underneath their professional exteriors. With popularity such a big concern, you may wonder if you're all still in junior high. Just know that you've already graduated.
● Finances: You're more interested in travel plans than money, but money is an integral piece of the puzzle. If you need a good tongue lashing to stay in budget, then find someone to lecture you, because the last thing you can afford now is overspending.
● Love: A gutter rat from the past tries to mess with your mind once again. Somehow, this overplayed subterfuge means nothing to you -- usually it bruises your core. When did you become so astute? A little clarity goes a long way when it comes to emotional cleanliness.
● General: The stubborn people around you might be able to get their way just because they are so dogmatic, but do not start considering adopting their tactics. You know that it's much easier to catch flies with honey than vinegar, so keep on being who you are -- despite the fact the right now being cooperative doesn't seem to be getting you anywhere. In time, you will be much better off. Sooner or later people will get sick of pushy people and realize that you deserve more attention.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Everyone is forced to branch out these days, including you. There's just no hiding in your comfort zone. Get started. Make yourself probe into previously unknown fields.
● Finances: Ah, it's almost time for the hidden agendas and uncomfortable undercurrents. Until then, enjoy being around those who are on the up and up. Hand-pick who you spend your time with and what you spend your money on.
● Love: You're a great friend, really. And that's extremely important today. One of your pals is quite distraught. Set aside some one-on-one time with him or her. Don't say a lot -- just listen. The hour or so you spend in service to someone else is an amazing gift.
● General: There is great potential for you to be a very positive force in someone's life today -- if you want to be. Get involved with other people as early in the day as possible -- stick to groups, and you will soon see an opportunity where you can be of service to someone. And it's likely that your helping them will also help you, in the long run. What you give to others might not even be as great as what they give to you -- but don't let yourself feel guilty about it!
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Being a little unsure is one thing, but you're beyond that stage. In fact, you're on the verge of total upheaval. Read your feelings and put them into the equation before you get to that point.
● Finances: Spending time in a financial plan is a perfectly legitimate way to prepare for an upcoming event. Unfortunately, you have things to do and things to figure out. You will be glad you did it.
● Love: Deep down you're really just a shy, simple person. But oh -- the show you put on! It's worthy of an award. If only once today, share your true nature to someone. Take a risk and expose that tender underbelly. Your vulnerability will move that person.
● General: Your reputation as a magnanimous and kind person could make a new person on the scene think that they can take advantage of you -- ha! The joke will be on them when you prove, in dramatic fashion, that's not the case today. Don't be afraid of coming off as rude to people who underestimate you. They did you the disservice of underestimating you, so there is no need to bend over backwards to be polite. This is admittedly a rocky start for the two of you, but things will steadily improve.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Everyone wants to get ahead, and there is less to go around. That makes the office environment ripe for plotters and back stabbers. Don't let anyone convince you you're just being paranoid.
● Finances: If you want to prepare, try getting in shape. Check yourself into a boot camp. Think cheap. In fact, it can be one of your own design. You'll want to deserve the feast you'll be getting and there's no better way than to be fit.
● Love: Have you met the man or woman of your dreams? Maybe? But you won't know until the fireworks ease up. For now, enjoy the heat and the passion. You can worry about marriage, mortgages and kids later on. If it's just for fun, you're good with that, too.
● General: If you need to overcome any growing tension today, approach the other person involved in a direct manner as early in the day as you can. Not only will it save you time, it will prevent more headaches. Someone who is throwing their weight around thinks that they have you intimidated to the point of complete obedience -- and won't it be amusing when you show them that you can't be pushed around? Be firm, but polite. You know how to make your point without making anyone mad.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Communicating means more than just talking. Listen to others in the office. If for no other reason, what they have to say will pique your intellectual curiosity.
● Finances: You'll soon have to put all of your ambitions on the back burner, if only temporarily, so make the most of the time you have. You can have an excellent day if you put your mind to it, and all the extra work will ultimately be worth it.
● Love: Turn up the radio or flick on TV and listen for a cause or a plight that moves you. It's okay to get fired up, even angry about the state of the world. In fact, your passion could entice you to join a movement where you'll meet the activist of your dreams.
● General: Today, try to avoid putting yourself into situations that could be emotionally intense for you. Your feelings are right beneath the surface, and they are ready to explode out of you at the slightest provocation. One wrong word, and you could burst into tears -- or let go with a mean right hook! This doesn't mean you have to go off and sequester yourself in a cave, it just means you should avoid confrontations or deep talks about your relationships.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Make changes in the office, and make them big ones. Don't bother with anything superficial. Only go for the ones that will make the biggest difference. In other words, go deep.
● Finances: Letting yourself get upset over old issues is letting someone else get the upper hand. Again. The best defense is no defense. In fact, your best bet is no response at all. Stay silent and stay present, and you'll be golden.
● Love: Don't work through lunch again today. This time next year all the blood, sweat and tears you invested will go unremembered. Kick off your shoes and climb in bed. When's the last time you enjoyed an afternoon delight booty call? Well? What are you waiting for?
● General: You're going to have to rely on more than your warm smile and cheerful personality to gain advantage over the competition today. Your persuasive nature is as strong as ever, but not quite strong enough to change someone's mind without having facts to back you up. So before you start any kind of negotiations today, make sure that you've got all the evidence you need to support your position. Do your research, and no one can disagree with your findings.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: People are drawn to you today, so make sure you're prepared for the attention. From your wardrobe down to your ideas, make yourself presentable.
● Finances: The universe is implementing a new plan, whether you're aware of it or not. But you and the powers that be can work together if you allow yourself to be open to it. Be aware of little clues that come without a price tag.
● Love: Your boss throws lots of work your way right now. That'll keep you at the office well into the night. Consider the bright side. A different population of people emerge after the sun sets. Perhaps you'll meet a sexy enigma on the way home? Keep your eyes adjusted to the dark.
● General: Your self confidence is stronger than ever today, and you are no longer too concerned about what other people might think of you. This is a bright period of freedom and you should live it for all its worth! When you aren't restricted by the opinions of others, you are able to do amazing things. So speak your mind and do so with impunity. This is an excellent day to ask for a raise, or for something else that you really want, but that might not be given to you so easily on a typical day.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You're feeling morose and slow, and you have a pretty good idea why. It's hard to face the facts when the facts are that you're not in your dream job. The good news is that you can be methodical in doing something about it. Start today.
● Finances: Don't go shopping today! You have a major grocery list to deal with in just a few short days. For now, try cutting corners in old-fashioned, time-honored ways -- like making your own lunch and cutting coupons.
● Love: Clarifying your boundaries will give you confidence, so when someone asks you out, and you're not into it, tell him or her the truth. It's okay to be honest about your wants and needs. Leading someone on and lying to them is a dirty way to conduct yourself.
● General: Your self discipline needs to come into play in a major way today -- temptations will be popping up all over the place! But don't worry -- you can pass any test of wills that comes your way. No one will be able to get you to do something that you know deep down inside isn't the right move for you, that's for sure! You have some serious strength that you still haven't tapped into, and today's challenges will finally give you a chance to discover it for yourself.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: When it comes to exploring your options, you have plenty of friends who can help. That is, if you want to make a move. But if you decide to stay, look to your colleagues instead.
● Finances: You will be impressing others soon enough. But for that, you have a lot of preparing to do. It all comes with a huge price tag, but it's totally worth it. Imagining your good results brings you extra energy.
● Love: An awkward, even disturbing situation will test your fortitude big time today. Maybe you run into your ex and the person he or she dumped you for. Don't allow the shock to knock you into anger and resentment. Instead, let your courage carry you above the fray.
● General: Someone who is out of sight right now is certainly not out of your mind. In fact, you're preoccupied by them, wondering where they are -- and who they are with! But they are making connections that they need to be making, and it's nothing that you should feel threatened by. While they are away, keep yourself busy doing things that please you most. You don't have to get a lot done today, so enjoy having a looser schedule. Take a long lunch and treat yourself to a movie. Relax.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You still have deep feelings about your career. It's just your physical energy that's slowed down. You can wait for the two to line up again, or you can come up with ways to jump-start the process.
● Finances: You should know by now why the subliminal issues are resurfacing, but if you're still lost about it all, do yourself a favor and figure it out. It will ultimately be more satisfying than throwing money at your uncomfortable feelings.
● Love: You're a showoff -- you're the first to admit it. And what's wrong with that? Your attention-seeing behavior is pushing others to the fringe, and it's causing resentment among the ranks. Share a little of that spotlight with someone else. It'll make their day.
● General: Things have been going very smoothly in your life lately, and it's mostly because you have done so much good work to make it that way! You deserve a chance to relax and enjoy it, but you should also be mindful that you don't turn your brain off. Living on auto pilot will be very dangerous for you right now. You have to be aware of your life, of the things you do, and the people you relate to every day. Letting your mind wander is fine, letting your mind sleep is not.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: When it comes to legal documents, you expect things to be crystal clear. So if they're a bit fuzzy, it's more than a red flag. Don't sign anything while you're swimming with sharks.
● Finances: It's hard to pinpoint the exact moment you realized you didn't need anything else to be happy, but the fact is clear as day to you now. All the money you make from now on is gravy. It's time to find new incentive or leadership to keep you moving forward.
● Love: Go ahead and mind your own business today. What others do behind the closed doors of their offices is of no concern to you. So what if your boss is boinking the cubicle hottie? Jealousy is no reason to rat them out. The universe looks kindly on those who keep to themselves.
