● General: Deadlines are deadlines, and there is no getting away from your responsibilities for meeting them. So if you're not feeling really great about your chances of getting things done on time, then you need to reach out for some assistance as soon as your doubts start emerging. Do not worry about how that will look to others. People know that what you've been asked to do is nearly impossible, so chances are they won't be too surprised if you call out for some help before the day is over.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Your intuition is on overdrive. Don't suppress it even if it's unsettling. Your first instinct is to tell yourself not to be silly, but this time, you should definitely be paying attention.
● Finances: Proving your abilities is a little like revving your engine at a red light. You can only push things so far before the whole endeavor goes up in flames. That's not exactly the kind of combustion you're looking for. Put all of your energy and effort into actually getting somewhere.
● Love: A secret rendezvous? Perhaps! If you're hankering for a little taste of taboo, peruse the wanted ads in the local weekly or place one yourself. Take advantage of this sexually adventurous streak and live out your wildest fantasy. It won't last.
● General: Someone who you know and love may be feeling especially sensitive today, and it will be easier for you to hurt their feelings than you realize. So it's time for you to walk on eggshells. While this doesn't exactly sound like fun for you, it's necessary. This person you need to consider is not secure about who they are or what they are doing -- and that's put them into a weird mood that you need to be patient with. Give them time and space -- and support.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Socializing over lunch is a must. Saying no means so much more than 'I'm not hungry.' Eating at your desk may be appealing, but you'd be missing out on a lot more than a fortune cookie.
● Finances: Making money is becoming one big struggle. You can't change much about it but your attitude, and that's huge. Think of your relationship with money as an alliance. Even if it's not in your bank account, it's out there somewhere working for you. That thought alone keeps the situation tolerable.
● Love: Common sense says 'stay away' but your heart refuses to listen. If you're pursuing an off-limits conquest, like your sister's brother or your boss, be prepared to deal with the ugly consequences and they will be ugly.
● General: You will be at the top of your game today! You'll come up with the perfect answer at the perfect time. You'll toss out the sassiest comeback to a flirtatious comment. You'll be in the right place at the right time. In short, everything you need will be at either the tip of your tongue or your fingertips. This will naturally put you in a great mood, which will go a long way toward putting a blue friend into a better mood. Spread your luck around -- it is contagious.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Make sure your thoughts are clear because colleagues' minds are muddled. There's no point in suffering through all the infighting when no one knows exactly what it is they're trying to accomplish.
● Finances: If you were a playwright, you'd be sitting in the first row watching your opening performance right now. As it is, you're watching the profits finally roll in. Your sweat equity simply can't be quantified and neither can your satisfaction, but the numbers definitely can. Enjoy them.
● Love: It's about tending to your separate sides, the public and the private. While you're hard at work on inner issues, it's important to keep up appearances. Even if you feel like shutting down and hiding, don't. The extra effort is worth the pain.
● General: You might get backed into a corner today by a boss or coworker today, but don't panic. When you panic, you start to make stupid decisions -- and your tendency to exaggerate grows. So if someone asks for something you haven't done yet, don't run around like a chicken with its head cut off, throwing things together. Ask for the time you need and get things done correctly. The time table you're being asked to adhere to might simply be unrealistic, and that's not your fault.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: With all the energy you start the day with, you should be able to double your output. But unfortunately, you'll be spending it just getting through. Watching the clock can sure take it out of you. Look for a new surge once the whistle blows.
● Finances: You have an itch for something extravagant or even decadent. You can scratch it within budget with but a bit of creativity. Don't miss the point of it all: It's the emotional bang you're after, not a hefty price tag. You deserve something special but you also deserve to save your money.
● Love: Don't rush plans right now. If you're working on something big, be patient. The stars must align in your favor for the perfect situation or person to come into your life. Instant gratification is not part of the program.
● General: Your naturally warm personality is going to melt any icy personalities you encounter today, so it's going to be a very social day whether you had planned on it or not. From small talk with the stranger standing in line behind you to a surprisingly in-depth conversation with a coworker you never get a chance to talk to, this day offers enriching exchanges that will make you pause and see people in a new light. You may have been judging someone incorrectly.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Being modest may be a good personal quality, but it's not helping you get ahead. It's time to toot your own horn a bit. Take your cues from colleagues, and start learning how to run your own PR machine.
● Finances: It takes a lot of willpower to reign in your spending, but once you start seeing the results, they are their own reward. The start is the hardest part of any journey. Imagine the glory of money in the bank if that's what it takes to keep spending disciplined.
● Love: With life as harried as it is for you right now, it's important to take stock of what's already been accomplished. You're too busy working on that latest and greatest hottie to waste time doing what's already been done.
● General: The warmth you feel from friends will keep you in a fabulous mood today. You are gaining a whole new level of appreciation for the value that your friendships bring to your life, and today will offer you a few opportunities to show it. Now is not the time to splurge on a gift for a friend's birthday, especially since they never hold back when it comes to you. So upgrade your gift idea to something that will really wow them and make them feel as special as they make you feel.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You can't count on anyone else for help, simply because you don't even know what to ask for yet. Make getting organized your first priority. You just may find you have what it takes to go it alone.
● Finances: When there's too much going on around you, your first response is to spend money. You are a typical shopaholic. When it comes to breaking the habit, you can't be too rigid about it. Don't let a single sale slip you up or seep into your new way of thinking.
● Love: If you're second-guessing a situation you've gotten yourself into, good. It's about time your conscience kicked in. This person isn't what they're cracked up to be; the sooner you accept that and move on, the better.
● General: You should get in touch with your flexibility at the start of the day -- it will come in handy as you are faced with lots of unexpected barriers. Some of your plans may have to be cancelled altogether in order to make way for a bigger opportunity. Romantic goals are going to be blown away when you overhear a comment that forces you to re-evaluate everything you thought you wanted in a partner. It sounds heavy, but really it's just a positive change of heart.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: If you feel upset at the tiniest change to your schedule, it's time for a reality check. Why so much emotion about a simple detour from your normal routine? Figure out why you need a security blanket at the office.
● Finances: Who says the details don't matter? The details are everything, especially when numbers are your foundation. Itemizing is your friend and ally, so don't look at it like a burden or a chore. You'll have a good day if you remind yourself of the ultimate results of the exercise.
● Love: It's time to tie up some loose ends before you can move on. So if you still need to make amends or officially break something off, do it now. The longer you wait, the more great opportunities will slip by while you wallow in your self-imposed purgatory.
● General: Has your drive for success gone into overdrive? It's all well and good to be aggressive in your goals, but you have to be mindful of the fact that not everyone else has the level of stamina that you have. Just because you want something badly does not mean that everyone is eager to help you get it. Your personal desires are not something everyone can relate to, so if you want certain folks on board, you have to work extra hard at encouraging them to come along. Don't expect them to want it as badly as you do.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You may not be enjoying deep conversations today, but you are connecting on some kind of intellectual level. Use the strange feeling to generate a totally new kind of drive.
● Finances: Your ego is poking you in the ribs. If it's egging you on, then maybe you should be listening. But if it's simply chastising you, block it out. Power tends to make all egos surge and warp, so be sure you're able to read what's going on. Remind yourself it's about the bottom line.
● Love: Something is trying to draw you into the future, but it's really important to be mindful of the present. Sure, you're looking forward to that hot date tomorrow night, but if you don't stay focused on your work, you could miss out in the long run.
● General: There is an exciting surprise coming your way today, and it's going to push a few of your carefully-made plans off the track -- but you've been hoping for more spontaneous energy in your life, so this will be a very good thing! You'll be delighted by the unexpected developments and you'll be happy to be flexible. You can accommodate whatever has to happen. Plus, you'll find new appreciation for the unknown. This is a great day to build a new tradition and leave an outdated one far behind you.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: It's hard to compromise your ideals, and you shouldn't have to. But what's being asked of you is hardly infringing on your personal philosophy. With a bit of introspection, you should find out just why you're resisting so strenuously.
● Finances: There is almost no place on earth unreachable these days. But that's not how it feels to you. You're waiting for an important communication from a distant place, and it's as if you're waiting on pins and needles. A bit of humor won't really make the wait end any sooner but it just might make feel like it does. Enjoy the illusion.
● Love: You're ready and rarin' to do everything at once, but time and energy constraints will force you into submission. Prioritize. If it's partying and flirting you want to do, get the serious stuff out of the way first.
● General: You finally have a chance at something that will change how your future plays out, and the great news is that all you have to do is greet it with open arms. It could come in the form of a new person, and old friend or even an accident. The key is that you have to stay open-minded. Don't be afraid. Today you need to move forward with purpose -- even if you don't know what that purpose is. Don't let yourself get stressed out by missing opinions or uncertain information.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Don't let the office make you feel like an old dog, or act like one, either. Change takes some getting used to, even if it's simply a new idea. But you should be up for learning a new trick or two.
● Finances: Everyone wants what's yours. Not only do they want it, but they think they deserve it. You're exhausting yourself protecting your belongings. This is the worst that the business world has to offer anyone, and once you weather it you can consider yourself seasoned. Until then, keep using the white knuckle technique to hold on tight.
● Love: Everyone wants a piece of your mind today, whether it's planning for an event or seeking love advice. Be careful of stretching yourself too thin. You run the risk of overextending your good spirits, leaving little left over for your endeavors.
● General: Your routine used to feel boring, but it is calming to you right now -- and you're not going to mind not being at the heart of everything. You'll be ready to welcome a new challenge soon enough, but right now the tried and true feels too good to stop. It helps that all of the obstacles in your life right now are minor ones -- really just little inconveniences that will be pretty easy to deal with. This is a great time for cleaning up clutter in your life and in your relationships.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You want nothing more than to knock out the bigger issues on your desk, but it's the small details that are tripping you up. Deal with them first, then move on to the bigger fish.
● Finances: A compromise brings an immediate feeling of relief. Whether you're the one negotiating down your debt or giving someone else some of what they've asked for, the emotional payoff for you is as big as the financial one. It's so extraordinary you'll almost wish you could go through it all again. Almost.
● Love: You'll shift uncomfortably when someone brings up something awful you did dead drunk (or even worse, stone-cold sober). If amends are owed, make them now. You want to look the world straight in the eye.
● General: Positive reinforcement is headed your way in the form of laughter and applause. Today, you will be the star in someone's life, whether you know it or not! When you're in a social situation this afternoon or evening, you should step out onto center stage -- and give your best performance! Someone is looking for you to be their inspiration, so don't disappoint them! You're getting a surge of confident energy now that all the pieces are starting to fall into place.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You can put the romance back into even the most boring of tasks with only a minimal amount of creativity. The first thing on your to-do list should be getting inspired.
● Finances: There's too much going on for anyone to seek out your opinion and that's just as well. You're better off keeping them to yourself this time. No one wants to hear how responsible they are for their own downfall. Spare yourself the ill will. They'll figure things out down the line, without help from you.
● Love: The person you're hangin' around with lately isn't so much interested in you as a person. What he or she can get out of you, however, is a different story. If you're done with the selfishness, give yourself permission to move on.
