● General: Your brain and body are ready to be occupied with productive tasks, and it's one of those wonderful days when being busy will keep you smiling. This means that today is the perfect day to tackle an ambitious cleaning project, because you'll actually be able to enjoy every single moment you spend dusting and vacuuming -- for once! And if your home is already in tip-top shape, how does your car look? Spend some time getting it looking bright and shiny.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Your day will begin with a bang. Rehearse a few lines on your way in, because you'll have to start talking before you even have a chance to think. Prepare yourself for a steady bombardment of emails, telephone calls and conversations.
● Finances: Breaking old spending habits is proving harder than you thought. You need an outlet for all your pent up longing and frustration. Eating is tried and true, but it takes yet more money. Look to your family and friends for emotional support. Helping you through this rough patch is their obligation.
● Love: When you lack direction, you lack purpose. So what exactly is going on in your life right now? Not so sure? Without any definable goals, you're sort of just drifting. Steady, steady -- now's a great time to redefine what you're looking for in a mate.
● General: Growing closer to someone else is a very rewarding sensation for you right now, but it could also negatively affecting your sense of independence. This is a natural dilemma you should be aware of, not a problem you should run away from. You are going through a wonderful transition in your life, and today is a good day to address the balance between the life you lead alone and the life you lead in partnership with someone else. You will easily find the point of least resistance.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You should have wasted more time while you were off so you wouldn't be so tempted to do it at the office. You'll have to count on others to keep your feet to the fire. And by the way, they will.
● Finances: Staying in all day is an appealing daydream, but the reality would cost you a pretty penny. Sometimes just expressing your feelings is all it takes to break the spell. It's as much a matter of hearing your own words as it is of communicating to others. Speak up when the urge to hibernate hits you.
● Love: When it comes to sex, you're definitely a missionary-only kind of person. But you are willing to experiment and if you dig deep, you'll find a sliver of adventure in there somewhere. A hottie in your sphere is feeling equally randy -- when the two of you hook up, it's pornographic!
● General: Honesty has a funny way of making huge transformations in life. If you can face someone and tell them your honest emotions, you'll strengthen the connection you have with another human -- and you'll get a taste of your impressive bravery. This rush of adrenaline is addictive and inspiring. Let go of the false security of white lies and vague comments. Embrace the direct approach: It will give you all the power you need to get what you want out of life.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: If you were a bit stir crazy yesterday, then you'll be pleased with the general tone of today. There is plenty going on. With all the movement of ideas, bodies, desks and loyalties, you can't help but enjoy the feel of the office.
● Finances: Money is tight, but that's not the source of all the infighting. It's the possessions you already own that are causing the headaches. Some people get moody if they can't re-appropriate your goods. Don't let their bad mood twist your arm. That's exactly the point of displaying it.
● Love: Try, try as you may, taking anything seriously -- especially in matters of love -- is impossible. How can someone keep a straight face around all that mushy stuff? Someone you know and admire shares your disdain for all things saccharine -- it's just a matter of time before you hook up.
● General: There is an exceptionally high energy in your creativity today, so make the most of it! Integrate color, music and unusual shapes into your day to open up your mind. Complex, conceptual ideas are suddenly crystal clear, so if you've been waiting for the right time to sell an idea or convince someone to change their mind, today is the day. Make it happen! It will be an immensely satisfying day, overall. You will go to bed knowing you did everything you did as well as you could.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You may have had your share of wild times, but now you have to put all thought of them behind you. Don't forget to check the mirror, or you risk looking like something the cat dragged into the office.
● Finances: If you could double your money or be in two places at one time, which would you choose? The spotlight's on you, so don't take too much time deciding. Your answer doesn't really affect the physical reality, obviously, but it helps you clarify a thing or two, if only to yourself.
● Love: Someone comes up with something and you're green with envy. Instead of secretly wishing this person nothing but failure and destruction, force yourself to congratulate them. Even if you don't mean it, the gesture means a lot. Remember, it's not always about you.
● General: What you think about things is important, haven't you realized that by now? Being modest isn't going to do you any good today, so ditch that attitude! It's time to step out into the spotlight and grab the microphone. Whatever your opinions are, they are valid. In a work context, you have money-saving ideas that will get you some long-lasting praise. In the realm of romance, your opinions are the key to better communication -- and, ultimately, getting exactly what you want.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Unlike your friends, your colleagues are not impressed with your way of thinking. A brainstorming session, though, may change all that. Don't be afraid to speak up.
● Finances: You're very sensitive to the thoughts of others, from superficial musing to deep thinking. It's completely involuntary and you honestly have no desire to know most of what you're picking up on. The saving grace is not being sure if it's real or just in your own head. Don't bet the farm on anything you learn through the back door.
● Love: Your jealousy is nasty -- no doubt about that. But you must be willing to share others. So if you're out on a date and the person strikes up a conversation with someone else, don't fly off the handle. Instead, store it in your memory banks and delete it from your mental hard drive.
● General: As a quiet calm comes over your emotional life, look for other areas of your life to grow more peaceful as well. For any social outings today, try to choose an intimate spot that's conducive to private conversations. Avoid crowded places with loud music or a raucous clientele. Even your wardrobe should reflect your inner calmness, and should feature neutral colors and comfortable fabrics that frame your face. Let your personality provide all the color.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Ah, work issues drown out all of your personal problems. Throwing yourself into life at the office is the most productive way to make the most of things, so keep busy. If there's a lull, go over fine details.
● Finances: A group of hens is out pecking in the yard. Just when you need their support the most is when you suddenly feel like the fox who was let in the henhouse by mistake. Unless you plan on picking some pockets, don't let your financial insecurities alienate you from the friends you love.
● Love: You're prone to a bit of overanalyzing right now. When you feel somewhat out of control, you tend to think and rethink all possible options and alternatives. But in this case, go with your gut. If a certain someone makes you feel icky, even the highest IQ won't solve that problem.
● General: Showing your true emotions can bring you lots of joy today, as long as you know when and where to show them! Propriety and a demure demeanor will be called for most of the day, so save up any outbursts or giggle fits for later tonight. Stay loose and relaxed inside, though -- you need to be flexible enough to recognize a gigantic opportunity when it appears. The work at hand demands a lot of you, but it's nothing you can't handle with grace (and a dollop of your individuality).
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Being complex works for you. You have just the right amount of fun -- you're not exhausted, but you're not bored. That leaves you with plenty of energy for the tasks at hand, and you have more than your share of them waiting for you.
● Finances: Your money is up, down and sideways and your emotions with it. This can hardly be described as progress and yet you are still getting somewhere. It goes without saying you would prefer the course to be linear, but if you try, you can see the harmony and even the beauty of the overall pattern being created.
● Love: When it comes to making decisions, nothing's doing: You're chronically indecisive. Underneath it all, you're afraid of letting anyone down. After all, if they're not okay, neither are you -- or so the story goes in your head. Say the word: yes or no. The rest will fall into place.
● General: Right now, it might feel like opening your heart to someone new is going to be a frightening experience -- but it doesn't have to be! As long as you accept that whatever is meant to be will be, you can look at your revelation of affection not as a risk you're taking, but as a truth you are stating. If you go for romance today, you'll be able to keep all of your expectations realistic and start a conversation without feeling like you're under too much pressure.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You don't want to be doing any gambling at all in this climate. Why leave your future to fate? How others handle their money is their business, but when it comes to your own paycheck, don't take any risks.
● Finances: You're too close to give up now. The end result in sight propels you forward. Try not to control this impulse. It's what will ultimately get you want you want, so let it be driven by your intuition alone. Overseeing it to the nth degree will only slow down the entire process.
● Love: Poor, misunderstood you. Just when you think nobody gets you anymore, a hottie says something that totally clicks. Where has this person been all your life? Who cares, just go with it. Grab his or her hand and get ready to tread some common ground.
● General: Travel of any kind is highly encouraged right now, because you are in a very flexible phase and ready to explore different cultures and new ways of doing things. Why not pick a spot on the map and start planning a nice long visit? It's time to get back in touch with your adventurous spirit! After a long period of playing it safe, sticking to known territory and staying close to home, the stars are saying that it's time for you to get out and about.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Looks are everything when the boss is watching. Well, almost everything. Why act bored? Keep busy and you'll have killed two birds with one stone. If there's not a lot going on, generate your own work.
● Finances: You know how to pull different types of energy out of your hat for different tasks. Today, though, you're off the mark all the way around. You're going full speed ahead when the work requires a sensitive touch and you're as slow as a sloth when quick thinking is called for. Fortunately, being out of alignment won't last long enough to leave you a pauper.
● Love: A little aloofness makes you swoon. On the contrary, your skin crawls when someone's too available -- if they have time to call you five times a day, something is definitely wrong. Feeling stifled by someone's attention? Call them on it.
● General: It's a great day for simple pleasures! If you keep close to home and avoid the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world, you should find a lot of satisfaction. But you don't have to do it alone -- why not have some friends over and cook a meal together? Not only will it be fun to collaborate on the food you will be sharing, it will be creatively inspiring -- who knows what kind of crazy ideas your favorite people can come up with! Recipes don't have to be free of improvisation.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You have too much work staring you in the face to waste time yakking. But some colleagues have stories too interesting to ignore. You'll have to listen before cutting to the chase.
● Finances: You're much too impatient for chit chat. You'd rather do away with the niceties and get right down to business. You're at the mercy of whoever's at the podium, though, and you'll have to stay focused on that one person. Time is money, but don't let that thought detract from their fifteen minutes of fame.
● Love: Laughter is the fastest way to your heart. So if you're on a date and you're bored to tears, that's a good sign this one isn't for you. Remember, you can't give an unfunny person a sense humor. Sex, no matter how good it is, isn't worth the overall ennui.
● General: The emotional support you have been giving to so many people will start to come back to you today when someone reaches out to you to find out how you are doing. Even if you're not feeling particularly blue, you should open up and just say what you've been thinking about. Utilize the shoulder than is being given to you. It's okay to lean on someone every once in a while. Not only will it draw you closer to other people, it will help you come to an important conclusion.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Don't expect work to feel like a night at the ball. It might not be a sizzling affair, but at least you don't have to worry about getting home in a pumpkin. You'll have a good day if you can manage to look on the bright side.
● Finances: You're either wanting to cry or clap with joy depending on the time of day. Your emotions are leading you around by the nose. Or is it the numbers that have you jumping through hoops? Whatever it is, this kind of emotionality could ruin a perfectly profitable day if you don't get a grip on yourself. Keep your feelings tightly organized.
● Love: You conduct your life so succinctly -- that's why it's such a breeze to do business with you. Why not apply the same laconic approach to your dating situation? Use keywords during your online search. No point in wasting all that precious time rifling through the wording.
● General: Today, some of the unresolved romantic issues in your life are not as confusing to you as they once were -- you have greater clarity, and are finally getting a handle on what you want. But more importantly, you are also getting a better handle on what you don't want. Someone you know well is going through a similar growth phase, and they would appreciate any insight you can give them. This is a great day for sharing dating tips, tricks and ideas.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Your assigned tasks might be fluctuating, but your final goal is set in stone. You should keep a vision of it before you at all times. You're at the office for one reason and one reason only. With that in mind, keep busy.
● Finances: The depth of your feelings just isn't appreciated by others. It's true you love money, but you also adore poetry and are wild about music. Is the money thing so distasteful that it blocks the view of your other side? Don't leave it a mystery. It's worth looking into.
● Love: Your head is in the clouds today because your latest crush is totally crazy and completely irresistible. If you could look into a crystal ball to see where this one's headed, you would. Why bother? Chemistry like this comes along once in a lifetime... okay, more like once a month.
