● General: You cannot be the leader all the time, and it is important for you to learn how to step back and hand control over to someone else when the situation requires it. Today, make sure that you know when to toss in your ideas and when to bite your tongue -- there are delicate yet powerful egos involved, and you wouldn't want to tick any one of them off! You can still achieve your goals without being the one in charge. Don't get hung up on titles -- it could be holding you back.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Want a guaranteed good day? Achieve your goals today. You want to be light-hearted once quitting time rolls around, so don't let yourself off the hook a minute too soon.
● Finances: You want to do as little as possible today, but unfortunately, you don't have that luxury. You need money and the only thing you have in the bank is Karma. Daydreams won't put food on the table, either. All there is for you is to sigh and buckle down for another day.
● Love: You're candid when it comes to the lives of your pals, but as it applies to you? You can't see the forest for the trees. If you're having a difficult time wading through your online choices, ask a friend for help. They know your needs and personality better than you know yourself.
● General: Avoid anything that even remotely looks like a power struggle today. There are some big egos in on the fight, and some of they like to play dirty. If you get involved in any of the mudslinging -- even if you jump in just to quiet it down -- you will get covered in dirt yourself. Your ability to play peacemaker is strong, but you don't have to employ it every time you see two or more people clashing. Consider what is best for you -- let them argue things out and find their own solution.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Choose your battles wisely. Don't let anyone get a rise out of you at this late stage of the game. Remind yourself how lucky you are if you need a reason to shrug and think, 'why I am guessing?'
● Finances: No matter how alone you were yesterday, you spend time surrounded by people today. There's no flying solo even if you feel like it. The good thing is, you're all like-minded and your goal is a loftier one than merely making money. Enjoy the camaraderie.
● Love: You're completely fixated on your own sentiments and opinions. If someone says they're in a relationship, married or otherwise unavailable, believe what they say. Despite the ramblings of your idealistic brain, this thing won't work out.
● General: Why don't you focus on understanding your own emotions and forget about trying to figure out why someone else is acting so weird? You need to take a new point of view regarding a difficult friend -- if they are pouting or being moody, just leave them be. Their problems, while annoying or troubling to you as well, are their own to solve. You can't fix their life for them, as much as you might want to. You're doing them no favors by offering advice that they're never going to take.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: You feel radically changed today. What a difference having a good night makes. Try to make the most of this new point of view, because it might not be as much fun once the novelty wears off.
● Finances: After a blissful period, you're back to focusing on the frustrations of your career. If you can, use your irritation to fuel something creative. The more unusual your approach, the more profitable a certain project will ultimately be. Don't blow steam out your ears when you can put it to much better use.
● Love: You love a losing battle and you'll root for the underdog -- in this case, it's you. You say you're ready for a long-term committed relationship, but are you really? If you can't specifically define what you're looking for and where you're headed once you get it, you still have work to do.
● General: Listen with your ears wide open today, because something someone says in a group conversation could be very useful to you. Either it will provide an important clue toward solving a mystery or it will provide you with an opening to start a conversation with someone you've been dying to get to know better. When you do start this conversation, try to appeal for their intellect rather than their emotions. They are eager to have a smart conversation with a smart person like you.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: It's a lot easier to be flexible when you're having a good attitude. Go ahead, let a stubborn colleague have his or her way but don't let on you're doing it. Put on your intellectual act and no one will be the wiser.
● Finances: You just can't figure out a good way to spend the day. You can stumble on one, though. Daydreaming and groping your way through something unknown are both excellent ways to find a gem of an idea -- if not a real gem. Use your intuition as your only compass.
● Love: Your exterior is somewhat aloof, even cold. Underneath that stoic facade, however, way more is going on that meets the eye. Knowing yourself is the key to a wonderful relationship with another person. Can you maintain the same level of happiness, regardless of your status?
● General: Scheduling conflicts may seem insurmountable today, but they aren't. Take a break early in the day and wait for things to free up. A compromise might be warranted, so be prepared to give a little bit more than everyone else -- your willingness to be flexible will be remembered by people who can make things happen down the road. One of your most ambitious goals feels like it's getting tougher today. It's time to swallow your pride and ask for the help you need.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Most people are happy to see the EOD come. But you feel like you're approaching the edge of a cliff. What you accomplish today won't make or break your career, so don't cling too tightly.
● Finances: Your career is like a work of art. When it comes to making money, you are both the artist and the masterpiece. So when you're low on funds, you know it's time to get creative. When they say it takes money to make money, sometimes that means spending it on inspiration. Go for the tried and true.
● Love: Obstinacy is your biggest enemy: You just can't walk away, even when it hurts. Take stock -- if something or someone doesn't feel right or fit into your overall scheme, pass it up. For you, that's nearly impossible but wholly necessary.
● General: Do you have blinders on when it comes to a certain person? Making them who you want them to be in your mind is a good way to retain positive feelings about them, but are you fooling yourself? Try to be more open-minded about who they really are -- and you will see the entire person, not just the idealized being you have created. This will be a good experience, not a disappointing one. Seeing all sides of a person may be a rude awakening from a dream state, but you have to wake up some time.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You may feel that you need a challenge. All it takes is a slight change to your regular routine and suddenly your whole work day looks exciting again. Just sustain your enthusiasm for the rest of the day.
● Finances: It may look like you're not accomplishing much, but inside the wheels are busy turning. What you're cooking up is more confusing than any outsider can possibly imagine. The end results are worth the wait and exemplify the old saw that the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
● Love: Your tendency to conceal your natural kindness and inner beauty creates a trickle-down effect -- after a while, you believe your own pitch. This atrophies your best attributes. Crack a smile today and say hello; exercise your personality a bit.
● General: A wave of generosity hits you today, and you'll become both the giver and the receiver. You're going to want to share all of your good news and give out all the affection and love you can give -- but you'll also be ready to get the gifts you have worked so hard to earn. Support, opportunity, respect, gratitude -- these will be some of the things you will be offered. Open your arms wide and you'll see how freeing it can be to accept what you know you so richly deserve.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Strange how the definition of a good day changes depending on where it falls in the workweek. The pull of tomorrow is altering your perceptions of a perfectly good work day today. Resist temptation.
● Finances: What a difference a day makes. The difference between yesterday and today is stark. Even the promise of making money isn't enough of a carrot to get you to move past your lingering thoughts and memories and snap out of it. Chalk the day up as a waste and don't let yourself get too upset about your lack of progress.
● Love: You're sensitive to the needs of others, which makes now a great time to hook up. Your ability to set boundaries, be honest about your feelings and take risks is expensive. If the other person doesn't like it, too bad. You know what you're all about; someone out there gets you.
● General: You need some excitement in your life, so get involved in a fun debate. Or eavesdrop on a titillating conversation, and see what kind of gossip you can gather. It's never a bad idea to mix things up in your life, but today you should feel free to toss in a little bit of conflict. People can handle it, and so can you. Differing opinions are enlightening because they show you what people really are passionate about. You will enjoy hearing what other people say.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Your boss knows no limits. Changing your cubicle decor? Now that's really going too far. But if you want to have carte blanche over things like decorating, you'll have to go home -- where you're in charge of the castle.
● Finances: If romance is how your judge a day, then yesterday beat today hands down. But if it's money you're counting, then today is not half bad. In fact, it's almost so good you'll have to pinch yourself to make sure you're not dreaming. That brings to 48 your total of excellent hours since you're counting.
● Love: That personality of yours is utterly mesmerizing. Sure, you can woo others, but what about your own affairs? If you can't keep your emotional, physical, financial and spiritual life together, don't expect any sort of long-term connection. Take care of yourself, first and foremost.
● General: You will receive a beautiful, extravagant gift today, although it won't be a material item -- someone will give you the gift of understanding. They'll help you 'get it.' You are developing a significant appreciation for the subtle connections people can make -- when two strangers can look each other in the eye and make an instant connection. A seemingly innocent conversation that is meant to kill time will plant an idea in your head that you will be tossing around for days.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: The workweek isn't over just yet so don't give up on what you can accomplish today. You may uncover a gem of an idea if you keep your mind open. Focus on what counts.
● Finances: It almost feels as if your money is not subject to the pull of gravity. It seems to float away effortlessly. You're doing your best to keep track of it, but by Jove, it's just not subject to the normal laws of the universe, much less of economics. No matter how much advice you're given, you can't apply it to your own wallet. Is it time to let someone else control the purse strings?
● Love: You've developed a little obsession with someone inappropriate and unavailable. Try as you may, but you can't get this person out of your head. To pursue him or her is irresponsible. Leave it at that. Stop picking up on their signals: Turn off your romantic radar.
● General: All the self-discipline you've imposed on yourself will start to pay off in a big way today! There's an impressive finish line looming, and by the end of the day you'll most likely be across it! Get ready for some impressive people to come out of the woodwork to shake your hand and offer congratulations. They had more faith in you that you had in yourself, so be sure to thank them for all the support. Turn your focus to money issues now, and you'll conquer those, too.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Yes, it really is about money. Sad but true. On the other hand, if it will turn a profit, others are interested in your vision of the future. Think about changing the way you pitch your ideas.
● Finances: Every draw or advance you get puts you that much further behind. Someday you'll have an impossible amount of work to do to make up for it all. You may be feeling lucky there is no longer such a thing as a debtor's prison, but you won't be able to get away Scott free. Start putting in a hard day's work before getting a hard day's pay.
● Love: You need balance. Sure, you're swept away by this certain someone, but don't lose yourself. Your friends, your family, and your life are important to keep your sanity and individuality. Give those things up now and you'll wish you hadn't later. Some bridges can't be repaired.
● General: Being daring always gives you a rush, so why not kick things up a notch today? Invigorate yourself! You need to push, more. Push your newest personal relationship by asking more probing personal questions. Push that coworker to take on more responsibilities and grow their career options. And most importantly, push yourself to take on that new challenge you've been eyeing. This is the perfect time to join a gym, go on a diet, or quit a bad habit.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Excitement is building but around all the wrong things. Don't share your plans for the night just yet. Let colleagues think you're all fired up about work issues.
● Finances: Your credit cards are pushed to their limits and your bank account is dry. There is no way you can overspend. In fact, there's no way you can spend at all. That's where someone else's funds come in. They're not exactly joint assets but all you have to do is ask. Swallow hard first.
● Love: Rely more on social networking tools to plan some spur-of-the-moment fun. Why not put it all out there? Impulsivity is great. You have absolutely nothing to lose when it comes to enjoying yourself.
● General: Today, you might find yourself thinking about doing things that you never would have dreamed of a couple years ago! It looks like your healthy ambitions are getting even healthier, and this is a very positive development for you and your family. But before you tackle that next big goal, you need to concentrate on finishing some things up today. Check those last few items off your to do list, and prove to everyone that you can follow through with things.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: It's hard to focus on work when you're so excited about something. But be a big boy or girl and don't let yourself off the hook early. You'll get the break you deserve tomorrow.
● Finances: You need to give yourself a boost up. Your energy is flagging, but you're the only one who can be of any assistance. You know just how to motivate yourself to action. Transform your day from a ho-hum one to a profitable one by trying out something new.
● Love: A wandering eye, yours or someone else's, is nothing to fear today. If it roams, let it! If you fall within someone's gaze, make sure you're front and center. They're staring, you're staring -- why not ask for a number? It's so dang obvious what's up!
