● General: Why would you listen to anyone who tells you that you can't accomplish one of your goals? Someone as charming and as dedicated as you can work their way around any obstacles thrown in their path. So if you get a red light from the big boss, your funds are pulled or the weather rains all over your picnic plans, turn to other people to help you out. You know exactly how to ask for favors from people -- and there are quite a few favors due to you. Call them in.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Making too much of yourself is the wrong approach. Don't stick out today. Don't be the first one to speak up, even to point out the obvious. Your best defense against the day is a good suit of camouflage.
● Finances: When you get an itchy palm, it means you have to buy some of whatever it is you're thinking about at that moment. Really, if that's your investment strategy, then it's time to come up with some new ideas. Make sure you are clear about why you are investing your money, each and every time you do.
● Love: Don't start the day with a feverish pace. You're in the running to win any highfalutin derby, plus if you burn out early on, you'll have nothing left when the real fun starts later on. Pace yourself throughout the day and take lots of breaks.
● General: Today you will have the ability to see yourself objectively -- this level of insight is a luxury, so be sure to take advantage of it. Evaluate some recent accomplishments in your life and reward yourself in some way. If no one else is going to pat you on the back and tell you what a great job you've done, then tell yourself! Get yourself a little gift or take yourself out to one of your favorite places. Give yourself permission to be proud of -- yep -- yourself!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Take things slowly. Start shopping around, a bit here and a bit there. By the time you start narrowing your choices, you should be gaining some momentum. Enjoy the downhill ride.
● Finances: You are feeling out of sorts. Or are you simply acting out of character? Breaking out of your usual mold is healthy every now and then, even if it makes you a bit uncomfortable. You may find yourself investing in something out of the ordinary for you. You'll be glad you did.
● Love: Are you in denial or have things truly fallen apart? Pull your head out of the sand and sniff the air. If you smell smoke, things have definitely crashed and burned. Your options, though limited, put you on a course for success -- don't run back to the wreckage for any last-minute rescue.
● General: You need some healthy debate to stimulate your mind and get your energy amped up. So try not to totally surrounding yourself with like-minded people. It might make for a mellow and calm day, but it will also stifle your creativity and put some limitations on your opportunities. Seek out people who think and act differently than you do, and you will only benefit from what they add to your life. Whenever you talk to someone who changes your opinions, you grow.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: There's a fine line between standing out and sticking out. Take the unspoken advice of your colleagues. Reading between the lines should tell you all you need to know.
● Finances: You thrive on activity. You're in hog heaven with plenty of things going on around you. Make the most of this frenetic level of activity, because it won't last. That's good because it gives you plenty of time for follow through. Without that, the frenzy is wasted.
● Love: Pick a thing, anything-- chances are you're powerless over it and it's causing an extreme amount of stress. You can't force anyone to fall in love with you, but you can be there when a certain someone comes sniffing around. Stay open to any and all options.
● General: Your friends are adding a lot of positivism to your life right now -- and they represent the answer to the puzzle you've been trying to figure out. One of them also has an excellent idea that can help you initiate a new plan of action for that latest goal. They know how to turn on the ambitious part of your brain and get you to see the endless possibilities that are around you. Call them up today and make plans for lunch or brunch. Pick their brain and get the energy you need.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You have a good memory but it's your emotions that are tipping you off, not your head. Your mind may be somewhat slow to catch up, but trust your gut before you have a chance to put two and two together.
● Finances: Life has been a bit too wild for your taste of late. You much prefer a predictable, conservative routine to the dog-eat-dog jungle the world around you has become. And that's just describing your finances. Don't let your inner voice add to the chaos and confusion.
● Love: You perceive the snub -- someone's blowing you off and you have no idea what prompted it. But you're full of ego and pride. Even if you could you wouldn't confront this person. Let all this sour business float somewhere else. You don't have time for such petty concerns.
● General: You have a lot of power today, which could cause some conflict with one of your partnerships -- they might not be comfortable with the fact that they are subservient to you. They could even be going through a bit of paranoia, and might worry that you're going to take something from them. But you have a reputation for being fair-minded, and they will discover how true to your word you are. Just try to be sympathetic with them, and don't get upset if they aren't the most friendly person now.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You're the one teaching others a thing or two. You'll meet plenty of people just ripe to have their opinions changed, and by you. Consider it a form of on the job training.
● Finances: What looks like work to outsiders seems like one big party to you. You're loving every minute spent chasing after money today. Don't bother listening to friends who tell you to slow down. Their dreams are hopelessly out of synch with yours anyway.
● Love: You're such a loving and kind person -- but you feel you need to be more if you want to attract this certain someone. Wait a minute! You are definitely enough. Don't do things against your nature just to prove yourself -- you'll totally lose this person's respect if you do.
● General: An opportunity for a long journey or some other sort of geographical change could be coming your way very soon. And if you already have a trip planned, you can expect it to go incredibly well -- an upgrade might even be involved, especially if you unleash your twinkling self on the smiling flight attendant. Prepare yourself for unexpected luxury. A big payoff is due today on the financial front as well, and it's one you should share with the people you love.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You're not done until you say you are. Check once, twice, three times. Go over a project with a fine-toothed comb, and take extra time where any money issues are involved.
● Finances: The numbers don't lie. Their cold logic is staring you in the face and you're the one blinking. Just try to do your best with what you have to work with. You have the potential to turn this from a bad situation into a good one if you keep your cool. The minute you start to sweat, it's all over.
● Love: The people around you are awfully touchy today -- and you'll think it's all about you. Not so. Just give these cranky folks a bit of space and breathing room. It may not be today or tomorrow, but they'll come around soon and apologize for snapping your head off.
● General: If someone confuses you today, you should avoid them like the plague -- no matter how beautiful or handsome you may find them to be. People who send mixed messages, play head games and just aren't clear about who they are in general have nothing of any real value to add to your life. Like a bad cold, they will bring you nothing but restless nights and an overwhelming fatigue. Right now, you should stick to known territory and the people you know that you can always count on.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You may love your job, but you love your private life even more. You can hardly resist the fun calling you. Leaving early would be selfish, but you might not have what it takes to do the selfless thing and stay.
● Finances: All the energy you put into thinking a problem through can now be applied to other things, and not a minute too soon. There are plenty of things that have gone by the wayside while you've been mulling things over. Your finances, for one. They need your attention, and quick.
● Love: Critical mass is approaching in some relationship, whether it's merely casually or hot and heavy. The momentum will rocket this thing into romantic orbit or it'll peter out at the launch pad. Only time will tell at this point -- the best thing you can do is to be genuine.
● General: If you are meeting a new person today, be aware that there may be an unexpected snag in your new relationship. Luckily, it will be funnier than it will be serious -- and the two of you will end up laughing over it eventually. As long as you utilize your sense of humor when things get tense, you two will do just fine. Any friction will be short-lived because both of you have a good attitude about life's little mishaps. You both like to smile and think the best of someone else.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: It may seem all wrong, but it's a good day to start a project. The next few days will only give you extra time to think. Don't put off until Monday what you can begin today.
● Finances: You don't really care what happens to other people's money until it starts impacting yours. The entire world got a taste of that recently and our interconnectedness is like the elephant in the living room. You just can't help but wonder what other people's gambling might do to you. All you can do is hope they're as careful in business as you are.
● Love: Fantasyland is great -- no wonder you spend an inordinate amount of time pondering people, places and things that don't exist (or at least not like the figments of your imagination). It's safer. But you have to deal with reality right now, so snap out of it.
● General: You can handle any negotiations easily today, from getting a better price on a car to snagging a prime parking space in front of another driver. But the best part of it all is that everyone will be giving you preference gladly -- your style and charm enables you to get what you want without ticking anyone off. The world just seems to be going your way right now, which will go a long way towards keeping your mood bright. Your popularity is assured!
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Getting a lot done isn't good enough. You need to have fun doing it, and not only for your own satisfaction. Others are judging both your product and your attitude.
● Finances: Pretending the outcome of a certain investment is in your hands is a bit delusional. On the other hand, a good dose of faith in oneself never hurts. If you can't stand the thought of not really being in control of your finances, then keep yourself busy, too busy to stew over it.
● Love: The bickering is really getting old at this point. Try, try as you may, but nobody listens to your pleas for peace. All they care about is making their point heard. Instead of playing placater, why not get online and check out the hotties. It's such a better use of your time.
● General: Today you will find a great deal of pleasure in just shooting the breeze and relaxing with your friends. You are more in sync with your favorite people than ever before, probably because you've been feeling so comfortable in your own skin lately. So celebrate you and celebrate them by doing something group-oriented. Play some dodgeball. Or, if the weather isn't cooperating, challenge your buddies to a rousing board game. Get together with the people who make you feel like a kid.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Unless security is one of your responsibilities, then don't waste time worrying about it. The weight of the world shouldn't rest on your shoulders. Focus on your owner personal security net instead.
● Finances: You are attracting the kind of people who share your more negative personality traits. That could have a devastating effect on not just your social life but your finances as well. Don't mix friendship and money, especially when it comes to your more flighty friends. And don't forget to look in the mirror.
● Love: Someone in the dating world isn't being exactly honest with you. Whether they've lied about their age or profession doesn't matter. If you catch 'em in the act, don't take it lightly. A fib's a fib -- and the deception just grows over time. Bad fashion you can fix; a cheat? No way!
● General: You are in a solid learning phase right now, and your mind is ready to take in new information in a serious way. Shocking or objectionable things won't turn you off as they have before, and you're ready to hear the arguments for and against issues without getting defensive or offended. Someone with a critical eye is going to point something out to you that you never knew before, and this enlightenment will make you feel like a better partner in one of your relationships.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Altruism isn't all it's cracked up to be. You'll chuck the whole group thing for your freedom the moment you get an opportunity to. And you'll get your opportunity today.
● Finances: Your brain is sizzling, but not with intelligence or insight. It's more accurate to say it's a bit fried at this point. Your circuits are shooting sparks from all the news you've had to digest, and the numbers just won't crunch. Give yourself a break for now. It's the most cost-efficient way to have a good day.
● Love: Overindulging in sin sounds like a good way to release some stress. Casual sex, a night out at the bar, an entire pint of ice cream to yourself -- fun, right? Not so fast. The emotional repercussions aren't worth it. Better to find healthier alternatives to blow off steam.
● General: Take time to appreciate the simple beauty that will be all around you today -- a baby's smile, an early spring flower, a perfect steaming cup of coffee. Your creativity needs some aesthetic inspiration to fully flower right now, so feed it all of the natural beauty that you see. Try to take a walk outside today. And if the weather won't let you, then find a window with a good view and sit in front of it. Remember: It's not such a bad idea to have company while you're doing this.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You've worked your way through the maze. Congratulations. Now all you need to do is unravel that riddle no one has been able to solve. Stay working late if you need to. It will pay off.
● Finances: You're never very specific when you ask your higher power for favors, and that's generally a good thing. But now you have a very specific issue you need help with and it's okay to ask for it point blank. You can even ask for an exact number, and include a date. Ask and you shall receive.
● Love: No matter how hard you try or how much you scheme, your little plans won't fall into place. The end result? Frustration, frustration and more frustration. It's time to find an alternative way out. When the same old, same old fails to yield results, blaze a new path.
