● General: If you're involved in any type of competitive challenge today, chances are very high that you will probably come out on top. Your mental game is stronger than ever, and any opponent you face will underestimate your abilities. Their premature cockiness will give you just the opening you need to beat them at their own game. Just be careful not to claim victory before you have achieved it -- you'd hate to fall into that same trap, right? Stay hungry, and stay on your toes!
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You're not as emotional today as you have been in the recent past. You're either adjusting to a nasty setback or accepting the vicissitudes of workaday life. Good job.
● Finances: You've got enough energy stored up from the work day that you're ready to have some fun or instantaneously combust, whichever comes first. Do yourself a favor and don't wait to find out which it is. Spending some money on recreation should be your first order of business.
● Love: If you're feeling edgy all day, don't panic. You're not going crazy. It's a great time to write about what's going on inside. Whether you're sabotaging a relationship or missing an opportunity, you should know the details of your psyche.
● General: 'Mutual respect' may feel like an endangered phenomenon today when you are forced to deal with someone who thinks using arrogance is a great way to impress someone. Luckily, the encounter will be fairly brief. You can try to teach them how to be more down to earth if you really want to, but it might be much more amusing if you just let them behave the way they want to behave and just walk away, laughing. They'll learn their lesson eventually -- without your help.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: No one is secure in their job today, even the most crackerjack among you. So when it comes to your performance, don't be too cocky. Long lunches are a thing of the ancient past.
● Finances: The best way to avoid conflicts and power struggles among friends is to remind yourself how valuable they are to you. That and keeping money out of the picture. It has a way of muddying everything, especially friendships. Don't tolerate anyone else injecting it into the picture, either. Keep the day free and clear of it.
● Love: It's a good thing the other people around you have their heads on straight. You're totally impulsive and without sane minds to keep you out of trouble, you could end up in a padded room. Before you continue with your antics, you owe someone a thank-you.
● General: You are likely to adopt a more opinionated attitude today -- certain situations and people are just going to rub you the wrong way, and you're not going to be too shy about talking about it! This might ruffle a few feathers, but don't let that worry you. You can't put a lid on your feelings just to make other people happy. But generally, you're way too diplomatic to say things that will be deemed offensive or inappropriate anyway. So it shouldn't be a big issue at all.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: The office is exactly the wrong place to be feeling selfish. Throw yourself into group activities if that's what it takes to jump start your selfless side. And don't convince yourself 'me-me-me' a winning attitude.
● Finances: You can do a bit of fun debating with your friends, as long as you know who they are. Once you cross over into unknown territory, though, you may be taken more seriously than you intend. That can be especially dangerous when you're shooting the breeze about money. Don't be surprised if you're asked to put it where your mouth is.
● Love: Your dream date seems so far away from reality it's astounding. But, you're really not so far off the mark. A sliver of optimism will shine through the darkest hour today, giving your the opportunity to ask that person out. Don't miss this chance!
● General: If you aren't on board with a plan, then make that clear to everyone else as soon as possible. That means that if a friend has their heart set on a crazy night out full of adventures and outrageous activities while you're more interested in getting into your pajamas, let them know! Tell them to go have fun without you, because there is no way that you can come to a compromise that will satisfy both of you. Sometimes it is healthier for a relationship if you go your own way.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You're stuck between the first haul and the final haul. Don't expect new beginnings today, but do expect a sigh of relief and a general sense that the end is in sight. You deserve both.
● Finances: You're no bargain basement shopper and you don't feel the need to buy something extravagant to prove the point. The kind of class you have doesn't involve money, anyway. Don't let someone else's flashy purchases make you rush out and keep up with them. You know who they are. (Their name starts with a J.)
● Love: Things will definitely go well for you today -- almost too well. That's the problem. The stars may lure you into a feeling of confidence verging on arrogance. All it'll take is the wrong word to the wrong person to knock you off your high horse. Watch out!
● General: The sun is rising just a bit more brightly today and your heart is just a bit lighter. Do you feel the tide turning? Hope is a powerful thing, and you've been able to hold on to enough of it to make a real difference. Blue periods can be tough, but they always result in more self-awareness and contentment. Slowly, you're entering a positive phase of strength, confidence, and knowing what you want. People are ready for the 'new you' to shine!
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Is everything just going wrong or are you working through a controlled destruction? The answer is neither. Don't let the path behind you or the path ahead cloud how you see where you are right now.
● Finances: If you were lacking confidence, you've finally found it today. Being around your friends makes more than your heart glow. You exude poise and self-assurance that others can only wish for. Try hard to remember the feeling and transfer it to your financial life.
● Love: The truth is you've been lying to yourself. The signs are obvious: He's not returning your calls, you haven't met her friends. The sooner you swallow this bitter morsel of reality, the quicker you'll get over it and move on.
● General: You have way too many tasks assigned to you today -- but you're not up for too much action. Your emotions are volatile right now, and your behavior could get downright erratic if you get overwhelmed, so something has got to give! You need to pare things down. Focus your brain power on achieving one single goal today. Prioritization is one of your strengths, so it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out what the most important thing to deal with is.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Someone needs to organize the office, but why should it be you? Focus on organizing your own efforts and don't worry about the group thing for today. Colleagues can count on someone else for that kind of support.
● Finances: You prefer being busy to being idle. Today there are too many things happening to keep track of -- just the way you like it. One thing you do need to keep track of, though, is your spending. Don't let the fun and excitement of the day convince you to loosen your strict budgetary rules.
● Love: One small word taken out of context will turn into a huge melee today if you're not crystal clear about your intentions. So it's best to avoid email, text, social media -- all forms of electronic communication. Better to pick up the phone.
● General: You have a reputation as someone who really knows what they're doing, so don't be surprised if people start turning to you for all the answers. You are clearly going to be the leader today, but don't try to hold up a faltering idea or project all by yourself! Things are moving into an area in which you don't have much experience, so be smart and do what you should do: Ask for help when you need it. Show them that even an expert needs an education from time to time.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Don't get upset if you don't see instant progress. Set your sights on the end of the week if you want an accurate measure of any kind. For today, just keep on keeping on.
● Finances: It's a good day, and the more creative you get with it, the better. Having fun on a low budget is one of the best ways to learn to get creative anyway. You know the old saw about necessity being the mother of invention and you get to test it out for yourself today. You come up with some excellent ideas, too.
● Love: Reality is a bit elusive today. That one hottie, who has up until now totally ignored you, gives you an in. Or so you think. Were they smiling at your or someone behind you? Before you confess your undying love for the person, get your facts straight.
● General: Authority figures are going to be tricky to get along with today. So when you are dealing with a person who has control over what you do, make sure that you don't behave too familiarly with them. It could be that a boss is slowly gaining in importance in your life, so if that's the case you need to treat them with the level of respect that they deserve -- you would expect nothing less of them if the roles were reversed. Do not blur the line between professional and personal.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: If only you could blink your eyes to make the coffee pot levitate to your desk. Or better yet, you could cross your arms over your chest and make your work disappear. Too bad you don't have those kinds of powers! But you can still get what you want.
● Finances: Challenge yourself to have a good day within budget today. It won't be easy, and no one will force you to do it if you don't force yourself. In fact, no one even knows about your budget but you. Keeping up appearances and having a good time with others is a bit of a juggling act, but you have what it takes to pull it off, and with aplomb.
● Love: Go ahead, share your thoughts with at least one other person today. No sense in keeping it bottled up inside. They may offer great insight to this particular problem. Better yet, they may know someone who has an in and can really help.
● General: You may feel like you're prepared to take on a greater amount of risk right now, but that might not actually be the case -- the universe has some curveballs planned for you today. Try not to listen to people who are encouraging you to gamble on something today. Taking a risk is not the same as having an adventure -- just as being more careful is not the same thing as being boring. Stay a bit more conservative in everything you do today and you will avoid a major mishap.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Your leg is where your arm should be and your hands are missing their thumbs. Or so it feels when you try to get anything at all done. It may seem impossible, but be flexible and focus on what's not mismatched.
● Finances: You're afraid of a situation that seems foreign to you. If you start digging in even a tiny bit, you'll find that, like most things, it's already more familiar to you than you realize. Start the exploration process slowly, and cheaply, to get the most out of the experience.
● Love: Whatever's been holding you back, suddenly disappears today. If you feel like you can conquer the world (or ask anyone out), that's a great place. Take advantage of this momentum and make up for lost time.
● General: It's all about holding on to what you've got today -- a lot of people around you are interested in getting things without doing any work to earn them, and they are looking your way! Watch sharing your resources -- while you are offering your help or your pen or a few dollars for their lunch, they'll be thinking you're a real pushover. It's dangerous to send this message right now, so you might want to back off and be a little bit more stingy. Your reputation depends on it.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: It goes without saying that you want to be home instead of at work. In fact, it's a good bet that half the office wants to be somewhere else. If that doesn't make you feel bonded, it should at least bring a smile to your face.
● Finances: It's not an easy day if you let yourself dwell on business or financial problems. Putting all of your energy into blocking them out early in the day is a wise investment. You need to be free to enjoy life so you can tackle your problems when it really matters. Otherwise, you'll be forced to face them depleted.
● Love: Trying to force things into place will only cause them to break apart. You're better off letting good energy come your way. When you let go of your need to control the outcome, all sorts of wonderful possibilities become available.
● General: Your creativity is positively bursting out of you today, and it will insert itself into just about everything you do (whether you want it or not). In normal conversation you'll suddenly start rhyming. Your emails will become brilliant haikus. A mindless tune you're humming will get people dancing. You have an artistic and expressive sense about you and it always helps you make the day a little bit brighter. If you come across someone who's sad, your sweet words will boost their spirits.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: It's not easy being at the office, but if it was, it wouldn't be called work. Buck up and don't let your sour feelings ruin the things you need to do. Try to make lemonade instead.
● Finances: Sudden changes in plans could incur unexpected expenses. Don't just think about what you want to do differently. Weigh sticking with the game plan and the extra money involved before you decide. Remind yourself of your personal budget and what else will have to be slashed to accommodate today's whims.
● Love: Nothing too great is going on reality right now. Why not slip into Fantasyland for something different. Allow your mind to wander beyond the limits of what's possible or probable. Even if nothing really makes sense, follow it through, anyway.
● General: You are full of so much positive energy today that your ego will be enormous -- just be careful that you don't lose sight of what you are actually capable of. You can negotiate the difference between cocky and confident. It's a great time to try your most insane-sounding scheme and see how far you can take it. On any other day, reality might keep you from aiming so high -- but today, you don't really feel like anything can stop you. And you just might be right!
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: So you don't feel appreciated by others in the office. That's the emotion of the day. You and your colleagues might compete to see who is the least valued, but your time and energy would be better spent working.
● Finances: It's a bit late to mind your own business. You've become entangled in quite a mess. Start disengaging on a financial level bit by bit, but stop engaging in the drama immediately. Consider this a lesson learned and move on once you're able to.
● Love: You're beyond tired of other people's expectations of you. If you have to hear 'So, are you seeing anyone?' one more time, you'll knock someone's tooth out. Be patient. Almost everyone really just wants the best for you.
