● General: You must work harder at getting away from your past -- when it comes to romance and personal growth, you have to let outmoded things pass. Open your mind and heart to new possibilities. It's the future that you should be focusing on! History is nice for reference, but all it will do for you today is distract you from seeing a great opportunity that is practically staring you right in the face. Big things are happening at the moment, but you must live in the moment to see them.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You may think you're watching all of your hard work take a nose dive, but you are overreacting. Don't try to suppress how you feel, but don't fall for an illusion of your own making, either.
● Finances: There's no rush to make your fortune. Rome wasn't built in a day. You have time to get right with your various accounts, so don't feel rushed. Take your time as you ease your way back into the world of finance. Pretend you're stepping into a warm bath.
● Love: You're gracious to a fault -- some people have the worst boundaries ever! And if you're not in the mood to listen to a particular person's latest rant about his ex or her opinions on the new president, get outta there. Don't waste time with negativity.
● General: You've finished a long journey recently, but the view you expected to have on climbing this mountain isn't quite as impressive as you hoped it would be. Okay, on the one hand this is a big disappointment. But on the other hand, this could be seen as a nice surprise. Life never brings you what you expect -- it usually brings you more. Remember that experience is what you get when you don't get what you wanted. Keep trying -- just one more time! You are always a work in progress.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: The end is in sight. You're already starting to feel the gravitational pull of home. You may be tempted to leave the launch pad a bit early, but cool your jets instead. You'll be happier if you leave with plenty of work accomplished.
● Finances: Your emotional and financial roller coaster is slowly coming to a stop. The bumpers are the last jolt you'll feel. Even with your knees shaking, you know you have to get right back in line to do it all over again. Don't hesitate. The future will be way more profitable for you than the past.
● Love: Whether you're a guy or a gal, you're great with women today. And in either case, that'll work to your advantage (and alter your communication style). Pay attention to details and offer specific compliments. You need this person of the estrogen persuasion on your side.
● General: You've got a lot of great ideas bouncing around in your head this morning, but you need to make sure you don't spend the rest of the day mulling them over. Today it's not about thinking up ideas -- it's about putting your ideas into action. You don't want to become one of those people who talk the talk yet fail to walk the walk, do you? You can get stuff done today if you stop trying to create the perfect plan. Just go with what you've got and make it work.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: And you thought there was only a glass ceiling! What's on your boss's mind is as clear as day: They are as preoccupied with finances as the rest of the world is, so be as thrifty as possible.
● Finances: Is the universe misreading your thoughts? If you're resorting to mind reading to communicate your financial desires, then you can just about count on it. Don't be afraid to say out loud exactly what you want. Money made as a goal reached is better than a random windfall any day of the week.
● Love: If you haven't noticed the romantic riptide in your social circles, you're not in the water. So stop talking shop already and hook into the sweet, lusty chat about bedrooms and undergarments. Relegate the serious banter to the office or gym.
● General: An outrageous person with a wacky sense of humor will create a lot of distractions for other people today, but your laser sharp focus won't be swayed for one minute! This means that if you are in competition with anyone else, you're going to be able to pull way, way ahead today. You have the right attitude about the tasks you need to deal with now, and while everyone else has taken their eye off the ball you can make some real points. Get going and have fun.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: It's hard to imagine ever wanting to do anything but rest, but come tomorrow you'll be full of high energy once again. Until that new beginning, you'll have to find a way to limp to the finish line. Be productive while you're at it.
● Finances: Today feels brand, spanking new, but it won't be forever. Make the most of your 'sky's the limit' feelings by not focusing on minutiae today. You need to think about goals further down the line and come up plans to reach them. Be both pie in the sky and realistic at the same time.
● Love: You, you, you -- it's all about you today. And when did that become such a bad thing? It's not as far as you're concerned, so indulge in whatever you want to do, as long as you don't wittingly hurt someone else. Keep the karma clean and you're good to go.
● General: Like a kitchen window after a day of pie baking in springtime, your mind is wide open today! Plus, your urge for new experiences is growing stronger -- which means that you are ripe for an adventure. So get as social as you can as early as you can. Move out into the world with a bright smile, and before you know it you'll find out about something amazing that's going on. Friends are the fastest route to good times, so call up your favorite people and see how you can get in on some fun.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: If you haven't accomplished much all week, give it all you have today. If for no other reason than that you'll want to leave for the weekend with your pride intact. Get to work.
● Finances: You're looking inward to figure out your financial plans. That's not as unusual a strategy as you may think. Plenty of people trust their gut when it comes to their money, even if they pretend their head is driving the gravy train. Continue being introspective.
● Love: Rely on your kindness and generosity to put some of that good mojo back in the universe. But don't overstep decorum and self-preservation. Avoid saying yes to a date you're not interested in -- it only gets harder to break it off as time passes.
● General: Why are you always in such a hurry? Slow your motor today! Because if you don't, you will probably miss out on something very cool. Someone has been desperately trying to get your attention, but you've been too distracted to see their smiles. Today, you need to take another look at the people around you. Personal relationships deserve more time than you have been giving them. They add just as much value to your life as your career does, if not more.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: A social gathering is on your mind. In fact, it's keeping you from focusing on work. Stay organized, if only so you can spend time with people with a clear conscience.
● Finances: Your financial or business affairs were wrapped up, so you get to start on an organized note. It's the best state to be in when jumping into new plans or projects. On the other hand, if you continue feeling the need to tidy up the details, you're probably just procrastinating.
● Love: Control-alt-delete. Is that enough? Or is your dating life ready for a complete defrag? When did all these fly-by-night romances get so out of control? Turn on the emotional virus software and eradicate the toxic bugs. It's time to start the dating game anew.
● General: Take a break from all the activity around you today, and try to find a quiet place to contemplate the things that have been happening. Time spent reflecting on your life is hardly ever time wasted. Things are going to be changing soon, and it's important for you to understand what you may be leaving behind. Appreciate it while you still have it in your life, because it won't be there soon. Good things are coming your way and you're understandably excited. But first you must be grateful.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Stick with your current project, even if it's not progressing. You'll reach a finish line of one kind or another soon enough. Until then, keep your head down and imagine a weekend with friends and family.
● Finances: You've become too used to socializing to get back into the work-a-day world. You don't have to become completely self-sufficient, but a bit of time to yourself will come in handy. You have numbers to go over, and that's way more than being a good conversationalist.
● Love: You're quite comfortable with your single, swinging life lately. When did all this solo time become so pleasant? Don't use this complacency as an excuse to isolate. You still need to reach out and make connections, new and old.
● General: Do the world a favor today -- talk to as many people as you can! Your charm is at its height right now, so don't hide it away or save it for the people you know best. Start deep conversations with new people. Surprise someone you stand next to in line at the grocery store by asking them what they think about a recent news event. Find out what that person sitting next to you at the cafe wanted to be when they grew up. You may get funny looks. But you'll also get some fascinating experiences.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Try not to control conversations. Let colleagues lead the way instead. You'll learn a lot as things move ever deeper. You'll come back to the surface with that much more insight and drive.
● Finances: You don't have time to be doing your friends any favors. You're too far behind from all the fun you had over the course of the last several weeks. On the other hand, you can't really afford not to, either. Time to toss a coin.
● Love: Fight old angst with language when ugly feelings bubble to the surface today. Maybe it's time to scribble a goodbye note you'll never send. Or, if you feel up to it, pick up the phone and make those long overdue amends. You have nothing to fear.
● General: There will be a few dramas swirling around you today, and you should be prepared for them. Try to stay as detached, calm and flexible your possibly can -- that way you will be able to keep from getting sucked into any arguments. Plus, you should give these people all the extra space and time they need to cool off and think things through. The more emotional distance you can create between yourself and warring parties, the more enjoyable and relaxing your day will be.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You are paired up with a colleague who is clearly a mismatch. Either you have different energy levels or different philosophies or both. Being professional requires that you make the most of it.
● Finances: You're eager to start on your new plan. Well, maybe more where making money is concerned and less where food is involved. But rushing headlong into things would be a big mistake. Slow down and cover all the details, even if it seems like it will drive you mad to do so.
● Love: When did it become so hard to be yourself? Sure, it's easy to blame everyone for imposing their beliefs and values on you, but ultimately, you allow it to happen. Today, assert yourself in one aspect of your life. Don't take no for an answer.
● General: Problems in your romantic life will be weighing on your mind today, dragging you away from the pleasurable events all around you. Unfortunately, the ball is in the other person's court, so there isn't anything you can do to alleviate the situation. Instead of stewing all day over something you can't fix, share your woes with a good friend or sympathetic coworker. The person you're confiding in won't really be able to help you, but they will make you feel better for the time being.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: A colleague is flying off the handle, while you are at the other extreme. Is not caring just a shield against how you really feel? You may want to take a closer look at how you deal with the issues at hand.
● Finances: When you get some news that makes your pulse race, your instinct should be to calm yourself down. That could mean making a long distance phone call or checking the numbers remotely. Whatever you choose, do what it takes to keep your feet on the ground and your head screwed on right.
● Love: You're prone to experiencing a total loss of control in one or more aspects of your life. So when the hankering to call the ex or indulge in an expensive treat bears down, do something else. Even if you change the radio station, a new perspective will help you walk through it.
● General: There is about to be a big power shake-up that might trickle down to you. This make today a bit of a challenge for you. Stay cheerful -- a good attitude will go a long way toward keeping you out of as much of the drama as possible. On the bright side, this is your chance to make a great impression on someone powerful. You'll have their ear for a chunk of time, so make sure you say the right things -- like you usually do. It's time to focus on the game more closely.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You're chomping at the bit to get home. But there are things around the office you have to fix first. Put on blinders and settle in for the long haul.
● Finances: You may think you're back in the saddle again, but you're only halfway there. You're still a bit rusty when it comes to how the game is played. If you're trusting everyone you're doing business with, it goes without saying you need some hired help. Find a trusted second set of ears and eyes.
● Love: It's all too easy for indecisive you to wring your hands over a pending or past decision. When it's done it's done -- it's good enough. Just accept that reality. Can you ever know for sure? Probably not. So just embrace what is and move on.
● General: You respect other people's choices, but not everyone else does. Get ready to deal with some intolerance today! The good news is that these people won't have too much influence over the group, so their negative energy won't affect the thinking of anyone else. But nevertheless, you're going to have to deal with them questioning your ideas or your creativity. Try not to take it personally! Let them speak their piece, and then just keep going with the original plans.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Your thoughts are doing their 'it's Friday!' shift. You can almost feel them move from practical matters to things like poetry or love. It ain't over 'til it's over, so stay focused on your desk.
● Finances: It's absolutely essential to know all the facts before you decide what to do with your money, but you already know that. You're tempted to just dive into something and figure it out as you go along, though. Your better judgment gets the best of you and wins in the end.
● Love: Bolster your social ties right now -- you need the extra support and love of your biggest allies to offset some romantic downtime. Don't be afraid to ask for a little more attention. Your people are more than happy to oblige.
