● General: Your new visions of what you want out of your life are like lumps of clay -- full of potential but in need of a strong hand to sculpt them into reality. If you don't feel up to the task, there is nothing wrong with waiting until you feel more motivated. There is something to be said for waiting for the right time and the right place to get things started. If it's a great idea, then it can wait. Test this theory out by staying in a holding pattern for a few more days.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Give yourself an opportunity to relax and you'll be in a strong position to seal the deal later on. Slow down -- this isn't something you have to finish immediately.
● Finances: You can't sustain yourself on karma alone. You need cash, and to get it you need to put in some old-fashioned hard work. Doing as little as you can get away with just won't cut it, even off the job. Overtime is calling you, so write off the day as a social loss but a financial gain.
● Love: Everyone needs a little help in the love department once in a while, even stouthearted you. Initiating a heart-to-heart with a friend or getting a little advice from a romantic mentor is far better than trying to deal all by yourself.
● General: Something you used to think of as radical turns out to be common sense. You are growing and evolving your opinions, and you shouldn't try to hide it. Just because you are starting to disagree more with your friends doesn't mean you should stop debating with them -- and it definitely does not mean that you should stop being friends with them! Sharing your life with people who disagree with you might be uncomfortable from time to time, but who cares?
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Deals you signed and proposals you made over the past few days will pan out beyond your wildest dreams today. Spend some time basking in your accomplishments -- just don't gloat.
● Finances: You're out of control, in high gear and heading right for a crowd. The masses might magically part or they might not, but you definitely want to scramble to find the brakes before you find out. Metaphorically speaking, of course. Both the driver and the car are your money.
● Love: Waiting for someone to call you? Instead of staying in a deadlock, why not give them a friendly buzz? You don't have to make a big deal out of it, and you'll at least find out where you stand.
● General: Listen to yourself and follow your mood today -- ignore what other people are telling you to do, especially if they are telling you to hurry up. They're not being fair. Their idea of laziness is something you call relaxation. After all, life depends on perspective and their point of view is nothing like yours. Therefore, you don't have to pay them any mind. You will be happy once you disregard the naggers because following your own rules is liberating.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Ask a close friend or partner what they would do in the same situation, if you find yourself stuck at a crossroads on a tough assignment. Their advice could prove surprisingly wise.
● Finances: Minor misunderstandings can snowball into major disputes if you're not careful. Even the smallest tiff has a huge price tag today. Get as creative as you can when it comes to diffusing tension and frustration. Conjure up images of your money when you need some incentive for self-control.
● Love: If you weren't somewhat fickle, you wouldn't be who you are. But at the moment, you may be flip-flopping wildly -- especially when it comes to a matter of the heart. Luckily it's your prerogative to change your mind.
● General: Be prepared to give a little bit more than everyone else is giving right now -- your willingness to learn how to be more flexible will be remembered by people who can make things happen for you down the road. Carrying their favor won't only be easy, it will be profitable for you in the near future. Show someone that you are willing to work with them, and they will make it worth your while. It's a great day for moving your career ahead by leaps and bounds.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You won't accomplish much if you run yourself ragged. So for today, switch off the cell phone and the computer and spend some time focusing on yourself.
● Finances: You're in tune with those around you, like it or not. Some of the vibes you're picking up on are not very pretty. Some of them, though, could save you a pretty penny if you take them seriously, so don't block out this particular ability today, no matter how uncomfortable it may make you.
● Love: It's the old brain/heart duality again, with one of them eclipsing the other when it comes to your romantic outlook. If you can get them working in tandem, you'll have staggering emotional intelligence.
● General: Not every day can be exciting and new -- not every day can be a great day. These next 24 hours probably won't even come close. Not much is going on and not much is available to get started. But one dud day doesn't have to get you down -- try to see the big picture. Variety is the spice of life, and boredom counts as a variety. Use today as downtime. Be patient and trust that when things are meant to be more exciting, they will be.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: The outcome of this project depends on teamwork, so leave your ego out of this and tell others to do the same. Everyone has to work together and do their part.
● Finances: Don't spend any money on socializing today. Not only do you need to conserve, but if it takes a lot of cash, it's just not worth doing. You're not one to be impressed with glitter on a good day, but on a day like today, you're sure that all the glitz is just another way to throw your money out the window.
● Love: No, you don't need a whole new approach to matters of the heart, but a minor adjustment or two never hurt. Experiment a little -- varying your methods of meeting people, perhaps -- and pry your mind open even wider.
● General: It can take a long time for your brain to absorb new ideas right now -- you are a bit preoccupied with personal dramas. Make sure that in a work or school setting you are giving yourself enough time to understand what you are reading, studying, or researching. Showing your work to another pair of eyes is a wise idea. They can catch mistakes that you can't and give you good ideas on how to tighten up the loose ends. Take their criticism and listen to their thoughts.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Your goal is on the horizon, and all your hard work is about to pay off. Give it one final push and everything you've been working for will be yours.
● Finances: If things can change drastically at the last minute, why bother with all the pesky details? They're annoying, but you're organizing them on the off chance everything will happen as predicted. It's better to bet to win than bet to lose.
● Love: Even a small change-up to your regularly scheduled activity gives your world a new energy -- and gives you new possibilities. Walk to work, go to a gallery at lunch or leave early to do something completely random.
● General: Each of your relationships has a different dynamic, so do not be worried if someone you've been having lots of fun with is suddenly hard to get a hold of. They are just living their life, not trying to avoid you! Your insecurity is completely unwarranted, so don't act on it. The last thing you should do is start demanding more from them. This is just how they are in relationships. If you don't like it, you can't change it -- you have to accept them as they are.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You know better than to pick sides in this one -- that's why you're a born diplomat. Gloss over a conflict between two co-workers by helping them put things in perspective.
● Finances: Someone is putting money into beautifying their surroundings. Unfortunately, it's your money. Your opinion won't even be asked for so don't bother offering one. You won't get upset by the situation, though. It's just your way of helping. Consider it karma.
● Love: Connecting with new people is a snap with your ability to understand where they're coming from and make them feel comfortable -- and it's fascinating. Ask 'em questions -- and don't be afraid to get personal!
● General: An upcoming family gathering is probably going to stir up some interesting emotions, and you might not feel ready for them. But this is something that you need to experience -- honestly and completely, so be open to whatever happens. Do not try to push your emotions away or deny them. Talk about them and get them out into the open. It's the only way that you will ever begin to understand them and get even closer to the people you love most.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Despite the long hours and the overtime, your spirits are good and you're working well with everyone around you. The rewards you seek are just around the corner.
● Finances: You don't exactly live out a fantasy, but you have a pretty good time anyway. You get to pull a financial rabbit out of your hat or show off your magical abilities to make things disappear. As long as the money isn't on credit and what's disappearing involves bills instead of savings, you're good. Enjoy.
● Love: You're a little skeptical of some idea in the love department -- maybe speed dating, a set-up or a singles event. While the immediate results may be ridiculous, putting yourself in motion won't be.
● General: You will be able to meet many different groups of people today. You might even play a role in bringing people together. Even if a culture clash exists among groups, your creativity will help you convey the similarities that everyone shares, thereby keeping the peace. You will also help create lots of energizing ideas that get everyone motivated to make life-altering changes. You see a way through the noise, and that makes you an inspiration.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Reconsider your budget and think about making your own lunch the rest of the week. Your bank account contains less money than you thought.
● Finances: If you can't get excited about your day, then just stay in bed. There's no reason to force yourself to conquer the world when you barely have the energy to put on your slippers. Spend the day sipping coffee and thinking. It will expand your horizons without even leaving the house.
● Love: Go ahead -- talk to strangers, lots of them. The world is your home, and whoever's not yet your friend -- or more-than-friend -- just hasn't met you yet. A connection is just a 'hello' away.
● General: Take a closer look at that new project someone is so excited for you to become a part of -- they've left out quite a few details in their sales pitch. If you are wary of this new scheme, you'd better speak up, no matter how you think they might react to your skepticism. Use your tact and charm to get them to reevaluate their plan. They need a dose of reality, and you are just the person to give it to them. They trust you and value your opinions.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: A little effort now will yield major results in the near future, and you're about to gain the recognition you've been working so hard to achieve. Don't give up when you're so close to your goal.
● Finances: A creative project is dominating your thoughts. You want nothing but to hole up alone to focus on it. But helping others trumps even your artistic impulses today. You'll be throwing your time, attention and yes, even your money, at the problems of others and loving the results.
● Love: Flashy or flirtatious isn't really your style, but perhaps someone inspires you to shine and shimmer a bit right now. Could it be spring fever? Take a step outside your usual style -- just a little one.
● General: You are feeling a growing sense of responsibility for another person, but this feeling might actually be more of a sense of guilt. You can't let someone become your project -- they have their own life to lead. This person can handle things fine on their own, believe it or not. While it's perfectly fine to share your vision of what you want for their life, you have to be open to the fact that they might not want to hear it. Focus more on fixing what's wrong in your life today.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Keep your mind focused on the task at hand, or you could find yourself right back where you started -- you might as well make the best of it.
● Finances: When you finally see the results of all your budgeting efforts, you may be tempted to celebrate. That's not only a slap in the face of all your hard work but a bit premature. You're actually misreading the numbers. The results will surface soon enough, though. Don't loosen your belt just yet.
● Love: Bored with your love life? The stars are sending you a supercharged power to change things up. Snap out of that ennui, add a little excitement and a fresh attitude -- and everything old is new again.
● General: New information will come to light today, and you need to be ready to make adjustments. This possibly unwelcome revelation will cause you to reassess a few of your strategies and plans. But try to be open to the change it requires and accept the fact that things might not turn out the way you wanted. This change of events is definitely a blessing in disguise, though -- but you'll have to wait a few days to see why.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Your coworkers are more than happy to lend a hand, so don't hesitate to rely on them for help -- you can't finish this project single-handedly.
● Finances: You already know how quickly the boost of a new outfit or a good haircut wears off, but you're tempted to spend your money just the same. You might as well treat yourself well if you're going to treat yourself at all, even if the effect is fleeting.
● Love: If you're expecting more of the same old same old, that's what you're likely to get. If, on the other hand, you're anticipating some fabulous change-ups and romantic breakthroughs -- well, here they come.
