● General: You might start dragging your feet on a task you've been dreading, but don't worry -- someone else's boundless energy will inspire you to keep on going! The sooner you hook up with a buddy who always has a smile on their face, the faster you'll tackle all the work ahead of you. Pairing up with someone who can help you persevere through the rough spots is an invaluable gift today -- it's not a crutch to need someone to cheer you on every once in a while.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Frankly, everyone around the office could stand to talk less and work more. Interoffice gossip is starting to grate on your nerves. Take yourself out of the loop and others may follow your example.
● Finances: Putting off your selfish impulses actually is helping yourself. Be an adult about it and you'll see that the concept of delayed gratification applies. That it is so delayed you can hardly imagine it ever happening doesn't make it any less valuable an investment. In fact, it only makes it more so.
● Love: You might be watching the clock during the day, ever so anxious for the fun of the evening to arrive -- but then suddenly feel worn out. Either schedule time for a nap or make plans involving a movie and popcorn.
● General: Today you will start to notice something about someone that you are pretty sure they don't yet see in themselves -- potential. Hold on to this revelation. It won't do you much good to let them know your thoughts, because they won't believe you. Instead, start aligning yourself with them and insert yourself into their life more. This will give you a chance to support them when they need it. That's the surest way to help them blossom in a way they never expected. Enjoy your front-row seat!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: This team has its weak spots, but right now it's the best you've got to work with. Everyone has a unique contribution to make. Turn a negative into a positive.
● Finances: The entire working routine would be a lot less dull if you could see the payoff in the future. It's far down the road, but it's no less exciting than a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Imagine it each and every day if that's what it takes to keep yourself motivated.
● Love: Making a snap judgment now could lead to a dead end, while keeping your route flexible means optimal chances for romance. It might even be time for a detour or a U-turn -- or a nice, long scenic stop.
● General: Today, when an old injury reminds you that your body isn't quite what it used to be, your health will be at the front of your mind. You'll start to rethink some of the advice one of your fit friends recently gave you -- getting more active and reminding yourself what it's like to sweat are two things you need to start doing. You might not be eager to get back in the gym, but you will have an undeniable pull to get more active more often. This is a great trend.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Turn prospective clients around to your way of thinking by looking at things from their perspective. Figure out what they really want. Then give it to them. You're unstoppable.
● Finances: You go back and forth over an issue today. Your thoughts just won't settle comfortably into a decision. You're getting nowhere. It could be time to be less intellectual and more emotional. If nothing else, it beats flipping a coin.
● Love: You're all fun chitchat, but a certain someone may have more on their mind. Make your boundaries clear to avoid hurt feelings -- or are those boundaries suddenly (and unexpectedly) expanding?
● General: A celebratory energy surrounds you right now, and your people have lots of great things to talk about. You should try hard to join in and applaud their successes instead of griping that they got something you wanted -- even if it's the truth. Now is not the time to point anyone's attention your way. You do not want to divert energy away from where it is going on and claim it for yourself. Let these people have their time in the spotlight. They deserve it.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You can't take the lead on every project, even if you're qualified. Let a colleague enjoy the spotlight for a while. Your willingness to share the glory won't go unnoticed.
● Finances: Stop imagining the wolf blowing your house down. The anxiety isn't helping your financial situation and it's certainly not improving your state of mind. Besides, everything could go up in smoke tomorrow anyway. Uncertainty is just something you have to accept about life. Look out for other things you are denying.
● Love: Firing off a flirty email or provocative text message may not be your usual style, but why not just do it? Take a laissez-faire attitude about the response (what happens, happens!) and put yourself out there.
● General: When it comes to money, you cannot build up your ego at the expense of your bank account. If you are afraid of being called a cheapskate, you need to get over it. The people who have that kind of attitude about being fiscally responsible are the same people who are deep in debt. What do they know about financial matters? Being more thrifty will help you increase your cash flow and decrease your stress level. Create a tighter budget today.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You're ready to forge ahead with a radical new proposal, but a large faction is still wedded to the old way of doing things. You'll make a more convincing case if you have plenty of backup. Divide and conquer.
● Finances: Friendship and financial equality are a good combination. An uneven amount of money can throw things off kilter. You don't like having your needs met by others, and certainly not by necessity. You don't consider yourself that kind of person. On the other hand, if the shoe fits?
● Love: You're a master planner right now, whether you're organizing an impromptu party or making the utmost of a date. Keep your best trick up your sleeve 'til the last minute -- the element of surprise works in your favor.
● General: Turning the other cheek is a great tactic for whatever drama comes your way today. Your ability to be flexible, to roll with the punches and to dance when the bullets start flying will enable you to rise above the chaos while others are left to tidy up the mess. If someone approaches you with any type of compromise today, take it! If you refuse to budge even an inch in your thinking, you send a signal that you're too narrow-minded to be taken seriously.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Opportunity arises in the most unlikely places. When looking for new possibilities, luck isn't enough, though you certainly have plenty of that to spare. Don't refuse any invitations.
● Finances: If you need some incentive to curb your spending, imagine that you already have everything you need. There will be plenty of opportunities for impulse spending later, made that much sweeter by your discipline now. Don't buy anything unless the need is deep.
● Love: Looking for love (or like) in unusual places makes for very interesting adventures. Why constrain your heart to the appropriate or the conventional? Someone really different may bust all your expectations wide open.
● General: In a group situation today, you can ensure clear, concise communication and help everyone feel heard and valued if you step up and take the leadership position. Encourage folks to talk slower and be good listener. Above all, try to keep interruptions to a minimum because your people need to hear other perspectives. Time is valuable right now, so don't waste it. So the sooner you step up and tell people what to do, the sooner everything can be settled.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: A few subtle changes could make all the difference, and you're just the person to put them in motion. Though nobody's making any radical moves yet, morale definitely needs a boost.
● Finances: You're sick of flirting with success. You want the real thing, and not for the money or attention it will bring you, either. You've been precariously balanced right on the edge long enough to win or die trying. Success is not for the faint of heart, it turns out. Romance and even socializing get sacrificed for a good cause once again.
● Love: How about letting bygones be bygones? Whether you're harboring some resentment about a romantic disappointment or beating yourself up about what could've been, let it go. It'll feel great.
● General: You have the world wrapped around your finger today, and all it will take is one little wag of that finger to get someone to be of service to you. It's a great day to get the help you've been afraid to ask. Plus, it's also a great day to heat up a simmering romance. Your powers of flirtation are strong, and someone has been waiting for a sign that you are ready to go. Be mindful of the influence you have over others today, and try to use it judiciously.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: The obstacles have been daunting, but you're almost there. Don't give up yet: all your hard work is about to pay off. Keep at it and the rewards will be yours to enjoy.
● Finances: Your subliminal messages have given you plenty of good tips so far, but you can't count on them forever. For one thing, you're at the mercy of their floating to the surface. You need a more predictable system. The replacement isn't easy to come up with but you can find one with some patience.
● Love: After a stressful day, what's better than relaxing with friends? Relaxing with friends in an atmosphere where you can also make some new ones. How about a gallery, a trivia night or karaoke?
● General: Your impatience might get the best of you today, because you are dying to rush ahead on a business or school project -- but you can't! Too many other people are involved in this situation, unfortunately. You can't just charge ahead on your own as you would like to. This could cause you to consider making this a solo endeavor, but that would be short-sighted. Hang in this partnership a little bit longer -- you'll be better off.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Whether it's a conflict with a boss or a tough assignment, a senior coworker has been in the exact same situation before. Use their knowledge as a resource -- they're more than happy to help.
● Finances: Fun and laughter are likely to distract you. Yes, they are part of the big picture of a quality life, but you have important financial business to take care of. Don't let yourself be sidetracked by things without the same pressing deadlines. Being truly loved by friends means they'll wait for you.
● Love: How do you spell 'hot' right now? Y-O-U! You're pretty much on fire at the moment, so burn up the dance floor, fan those flirtation flames and generally cause sparks everywhere you go.
● General: For you, starting new projects today will be easy as pie, but finishing those things? Impossible. Lots of details are up in the air that other people are responsible for, so your hands are tied to a certain extent. You can't go forward with this thing alone, either. All of this uncertainty will continue for the next few days, so it's not wise to make any big commitments -- wait until you can pin down important facts and numbers.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Your mood is being dampened by the low morale of others, but complaining won't help boost anyone's attitude. Turn these feelings of dissatisfaction in a positive direction, and you'll inspire others.
● Finances: You have your own code of conduct that you go by. Call them cardinal rules or a work ethic, but a rose by any other name smells just as sweet. Or not. If you're not happy with your career, those cardinal rules are a good place to start the questioning.
● Love: Some challenging work matters may occupy your day, but you should definitely plan to make the night your own. A sweet connection or some interesting romantic info are both distinct possibilities.
● General: If you are planning a trip, a dinner party, or any other kind of group-oriented social event, you need to get a handle on things today. Cover all of the details now, and you will save yourself a ton of headaches later on. This is simple logic, but sometimes it feels more fun to focus on the good times than on the work it takes to ensure that fun. Do some work today -- make reservations, write up the shopping list, and get ready to execute.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Let your graciousness shine through. Colleagues are humbled by your technique, and they're lining up to follow your example. The secret to your success is knowing when to take credit and when to share in the glory.
● Finances: People are the same the world over, and that goes for all the various financial states people can find themselves in. Remember your basic humanity today and forget about all the trappings. You'll find yourself connecting with people you never even noticed, and end the day the richer for the experience.
● Love: Rather than acting impetuously now, give things a little more thought. If you can put this in context with regard to your values and the rest of your life, you'll be able to follow the right path -- or one of them.
● General: You will be feeling lots of conflicting emotions today, which might confuse and frustrate you. So instead of listening to your heart, start paying more attention to your brain. Move these emotional thoughts into your head so you can look at them more analytically. Getting your feelings organized will help you understand them better and send you into a much more productive phase. So instead of reacting to your feelings, start dissecting them.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Clients can see through empty assurances, so don't make promises you can't deliver. Trustworthiness is valuable beyond any other personality asset you possess.
● Finances: If you collected on all the debts that people owed you, you could retire early. On the other hand, if you stopped wasting time thinking about all the money owed to you, you'd also have a fighting chance at retiring early. Which would ultimately be the most satisfying way to reel it in?
● Love: Work will likely occupy your attention during the day, but tonight, be ready to jump into romance without reservations. Go ahead and flirt -- with a variety of different types. Practice makes perfect!
