● General: There are too many strangers in your daily life, right now! It's time for you to acknowledge those familiar faces and try to turn one or two of them into casual acquaintances. So smile and say hello the next time you stand next to that person in the elevator for the fiftieth time. They recognize you, you recognize them -- so what's the holdup? It's easy to break the ice. It's all about living life to its fullest, and doing your best to connect with another human being.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: It's amateur day. Let yourself take on a new responsibility or move into a completely different cubicle. Dive right in. Don't waste your time feeling like a fish out of the water.
● Finances: Using successful situations as your springboard works wonders for your attitude. You can only put your career first for so long on a day like today, but your momentum is well channeled into getting ahead and staying there.
● Love: Today, you must expend lots of energy to get little done. So choose your tasks wisely -- don't burn up lots of momentum on starts and fits. Better to have your day planned out ahead of time to avoid major burnout later on this evening, when you'll need that energy to party!
● General: All signs are pointing to you taking a positive journey -- some other sort of geographical change is coming your way and it will bring a smile to your face. If a business trip is already planned, you can expect it to go well -- and the higher ups will reward you for the role you played in it. And if your upcoming travel is devoted to pleasure, than you should prepare yourself for a few unexpected perks -- perhaps a free upgrade is in your future?
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: All that glitters is not gold unless it's a green top hat. You'll be meeting one charmer after another today. Anything but lunch at your desk is a risk that won't pay off.
● Finances: You need a personal day, and you're going to get one a bit sooner than you planned. Continuing with the projects before you would just be a waste of time and money. Both are better spent getting you ready for another try. It's safe to consider it a day, no matter what time it is.
● Love: You'll find tons of awesome opportunities to make it all about you today. And it's so effortless. Everyone wants to put you in the spotlight anyway because you're so affable and fun to be around. So gather your people and lead the charge.
● General: Big news is coming your way today, but try not to overreact when you hear it. Other people are going to be watching you for clues about how they should react, and if you amp up the hysteria, they are sure to follow suit. So stay cool, calm and collected -- no matter what the news is. Carry on as you normally would and roll with the punches that come along. It might be hard to hide what you really feel, so if you have to talk about your reaction, at least try to play it down.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Take a breath. Preaching will not get you anywhere, if only because you've already won the office over. The converts are simply waiting for further instructions from you.
● Finances: What you're doing can hardly be considered research. You can wonder about a thing all day long and not know any more about it than you did first thing in the morning. The old you would not have hesitated to dive right in. The new you is overly cautious. Find the middle ground.
● Love: Be careful how much advice you dispense with today. Someone is just looking to twist your words around to fit their needs. No matter what you say, that thick skull of theirs will prevent anything positive from getting through.
● General: You might not feel like coming out of the introspective phase you've been going through lately, but you should try to! There are quite a few people who are interested in you. Maybe their interest is romantic, maybe it's professional -- but you'll never find out unless you make yourself more available, will you? So start returning those voice mails and emails. Find out what's cooking for next weekend. When word hits the streets that you're back in action, you'll be highly sought after.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Uh-oh, that little social, private problem is tugging at the sleeve of your suit. Acknowledge it at your own peril. As hard as it is, keep the flow of energy around it, not through it, or you're hooked.
● Finances: You need to deal with something important. You are on a roll but don't get lulled into thinking you have all the time in the world. Your bottom line can still be affected by what you do now. Make sure it's affected positively.
● Love: The problem with today is options -- you have too many of them. Whatever you choose, hang out with other bachelors and/or bachelorettes. Your chances of hooking up with a hottie are over the top and when a bunch of randy singles get-together, anything can happen.
● General: You are full of determination and you are capable of amazing things right now. No one can tell you differently -- although that is not going to stop them from trying. Some pushy people are planting false doubt in your mind, but you have got to pay them no heed. You know exactly what to do and how to do it, so just listen to your intuition and then act -- once you know what you're doing, of course. Just because you're confident doesn't mean you shouldn't also be prepared.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: If ever there was a day to have fun at the office, it's today. Well, it's the right day to have fun outside of the office, to be more accurate. Have a long lunch, but be picky about who you bring along.
● Finances: You look like a million bucks today no matter how much you're actually worth. Making a good impression is easy and you should enjoy it while it lasts. Even better yet, figure out what it is you're doing right so you can recreate it at will, instead of randomly.
● Love: Dust in the wind -- that's the attention span of almost everyone around you today. So it's up to you to step in and gather whatever particles you can. If you've been waiting to ask for a date or a raise, now's your chance.
● General: You are probably going to have a lot of time to play with today -- so what kind of game are you in the mood for? If you do something fun that's also physical, you are sure to have a fabulous time! Bonus points if you can partake in some sporting activity with friends you haven't seen in a while. Everyone is in a great mood to blow off some steam and get competitive without getting out of hand. Few things will feel as rewarding today as whooping it up with your favorite people.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Family obligations, health problems -- you just can't come up with excuses fast enough. But at the end, you are the one who won't let yourself out of your responsibilities. Don't even bother picking up the phone.
● Finances: Hard work may be its own reward, but you have a different kind of payoff in mind today. If having healthy ambitions like making money are what keep your nose to the grindstone, then go ahead and keep them front and center. The more creative you get, the more fun it all is.
● Love: All this hard work is finally starting to pay off. Whether you've been beating your fat into submission at the gym or pounding out that hellish project after hours, you're seeing results. Take a minute to cherish your dedication -- then get back to business.
● General: Your tense relationship with an authority figure is starting to become a lot more amicable, so you need to take advantage of this open door and build something. Ask them to a social event or at least book some one-on-one time with them. You two need to find some time alone in order to clearly communicate what you want to ask of each other and what you can give each other. Rely on your good communications to ease any potentially rough spots that may appear in the near future.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Current projects might have to wait if your feelings have anything to do with it. Try to be intellectual about it all instead. Your best bet is to balance out your head and your heart.
● Finances: Having limits shouldn't make you so depressed. They're part of the human experience. That they're imposed from an outside source is what is really bothering you. Remember that you are ultimately responsible for the situation you're in, if that helps you regain some sense of control.
● Love: Availability is a good thing right now -- always answer your phone and respond to emails within a few hours. Even if you're a second or third choice, your chance to shine still comes around. And when it does, they'll lament the day they passed you over the first time.
● General: Little changes in your life today will create larger and more inspiring changes down the road, so do not assume that you always have to make major revisions in order to make a major difference. Once the ball gets rolling, you can ride it to some amazing adventures -- you just need patience! So start small today. Instead of leaping out of your rut, just nudge your way a little to the left. Sometimes reaching smaller goals is much more valuable than reaching the big ones.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Someone might be persuasive, but you should stay at your desk at all costs today. Even a simple break could ruin your whole day. Let work be your ball and chain.
● Finances: Even though it's not a once in a lifetime opportunity, it is an opportunity nonetheless. The stars might line up for you again and again, but there's really no point in knowing it if you're not willing to make good use of the information. It's a good day to sign, at least as good as it gets, so don't hold back.
● Love: Your brain is extra loud today -- nothing that comes out of it makes any sense at all. Under these circumstances, you're better off listening to instinct. Even if you have to tune out and sit in silence for a few minutes, the right message will rise to the surface.
● General: Relationship issues will come to the forefront today when it feels like someone isn't being completely honest with you. It is time to reevaluate the situation and ask yourself -- is this person adding anything valuable to your life, or just chaos? Do they make you happy or confused? If they do make you happy, then this tenseness if just a phase you are going through together right now. Don't give it another thought. But if they add only chaos, and confuse you -- it's time to end it.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: There is suddenly a parade of goodwill and friendship. Too bad it's not snaking its way right through your office. You'll have to go out and find it because it won't come looking for you.
● Finances: You can't see the forest for the trees. You're so focused on money that you've forgotten what the point of it is. Sure, penny pinching is saving you some cash, but then again, there's no point in having it in the bank if your plan is to never spend it at all. Relax a bit. The only thing that needs to be loosened for now is your attitude.
● Love: When a song or an image transports you back in time, don't fight it. Enjoy the flood of nostalgia. It's reminiscent of happy childhood innocence. Recapture the essence of youth and apply it to your currently crazy, even sinful, adult life.
● General: You are going to be impressing others left and right today, and these people could make some important things happen for you. You are about to be invited into the inner circle, so get ready to show off some skills you haven't used in a while. But don't be nervous about your debut! These people want to get to know you better, and they already like what they see. So you should feel relaxed and confident. Your genuine charm is going to shine through.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Discipline? Structure? Impossible. On a day like today, the last thing you can imagine is either. But you'll have to tough it out one way or another. Be an adult and stay at your desk.
● Finances: The accomplishment you're most proud of is one others either barely notice or take for granted. That's okay with you, though, because in this one area at least, you are not looking for any recognition from others. Pull out your private trophy and give it a long, warm look when you need to boost your stamina today.
● Love: Everyone has at least one compliment for you today, but you'd rather not hear it. Nice words directed your way make you squirm. Plod through these saccharine hours with a grin and a nod. Otherwise, you're liable to insult someone who's totally into you.
● General: You've been going full steam ahead for way too long, so it's probably no surprise to you that today you're going to be feeling extra tired. But the good news is, you can take a break very soon, if not today. Whatever you had planned should either be cut back, rescheduled or canceled altogether. You're not going to be able to completely relax until you have no commitments or appointments weighing on your mind. You have to get bored before you can get re-energized.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: There has to be a happy medium to your day. Between drudgery and friends, you'll choose friends hands down. Don't even give yourself the option until after you're done with your work.
● Finances: Keep your head down because bullets are flying. The numbers are going to be impossible to misunderstand, and you don't want to make eye contact with anyone today. All that discipline comes in handy because you already know how to stay focused on the task at hand. Focus like a laser beam.
● Love: You're way too focused on details and outer characteristics. If you dig deeper, beyond age, the color of skin and those awful shoes, you'll discover more similarities than differences. Toss judgment out of the window to make it past the first impression.
● General: Some good luck is coming into your life early today, and it could result in a better financial future. Take a moment to re-review your bank accounts and your budget -- you might find some extra funds that you thought you had spent long ago. Check through your coat pockets, and you may be greeted with Abraham Lincoln or an Andrew Jackson! Now, before you head out to the mall to spend your windfall, think about a big ticket item you've been saving up for. Use this gift to get closer to the goal.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You may think today should be a holiday but your boss has a different opinion. Your safest bet is to feign surprise, or better yet, not say a word. Think carefully before blabbing.
● Finances: Nothing is easy anymore and today you're not off the hook until the very end. When you're out of work to do, start figuring out how you can help those around you. There's always something else the group needs before you all can call it a day.
● Love: You want to eat, your pals are ready to head to the bar. What to do? Expect your wishes to fall out of favor with the status quo today. If you're up for a compromise, go with the flow. Otherwise, don't be afraid to stand as the lone wolf.
