● General: A meeting or informal discussion at work this morning will reveal a real problem that you all need to address right away. Chances are, you either know how to fix it easily or know someone who can, so speak up -- you owe it to the group to share what you know. Be the voice of reason in a trying situation, and you'll be a calming force on those freaked-out folks. Your hero status will grow as the day continues, and possibly even throughout the rest of the month.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: It may take a little help from your friends -- or at least your most trusted colleagues -- to make this final push. But alas, your wildest ambitions are within your reach.
● Finances: There's always someone who objects to change, even if that change is for the better. Reigning in your spending is like going against the culture around you for some reason. You don't have to jump to another social circle, though. Just sticking to your guns is enough to convince the naysayer.
● Love: Some days are made for romance, but this ain't one of 'em. If you've got a date, make it friendly, low-expectations and low-key; if you don't, make one with your slippers and a movie.
● General: Keeping the peace is simply not your job -- so today, do not take on any additional burdens by trying to ease tense situations. Your compassion is admirable, but if a conflict is going on today, you need to do your best to avoid it. Resist your urge to step in and make these people talk to each other or try to come to an agreement. This is something you are not a part of, and you should stay out of it. Let them work out their problems on their own. You can't help.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Make sure a conflict is worth the effort and think twice before engaging in a power struggle with a colleague. There's no reason to waste time on a petty battle of wills.
● Finances: You are a salesman's dream come true, but you should be their worst nightmare instead. Don't just buy based on what they tell you, especially when a lot of money is involved. Shopping around is a must, even if it goes against your hasty nature.
● Love: Sure, your coupled-up friends are great, but save them for another day -- right now, you'll have a blast with those who share your mindset and relationship status. Get out and meet some new prospects together.
● General: Your intellectual strengths are not fading, but nevertheless, you might start to wonder where all your smart went today. Everything everyone is saying is just so darned confusing! You're going to have multiple misunderstandings today, which will leave you awash in frustration. Luckily, you don't have to do lots of communicating with new people, so you can avoid the making-a-bad-first-impression routine. Save the tough thinking for another day.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Go with whatever your mood is telling you. Spend some time brainstorming on that proposal for next week or select colors and textures for the upcoming remodel -- the choice is yours.
● Finances: Hoping and wishing are perfect hobbies for a bump on a log. Someone like you needs to be more proactive than that, though. Take the initiative. Winning the lottery or getting an inheritance is hardly the way you want to make your riches. Take the advice of someone who's been there, done that.
● Love: Worrying about what someone thinks of you is really pretty silly -- and if you try to adjust to expectations, they won't be getting the real deal. Be yourself -- it's the only way to find out if you're actually compatible.
● General: Be prepared for your mind to wander today. And while you're at it, enjoy the experience immensely! It's healthy to let your mood dictate your actions every once in a while, so let that brain of yours roam all it wants. You're sure to end up in some unusual places and meet an interesting person. There's no certain path or direction to follow anyway in life, so toss out your usual routine and go adventuring as much as you can. You'll gain some bright ideas.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Don't take the bait. You're just trying to get some work done on your day off, but everyone around you is reacting emotionally. De-escalate the situation by responding intellectually.
● Finances: One minute you're blurting out the first thing that comes to mind, and the next you're so suspicious of your audience that you're afraid to say a word. No, this is not an anxiety dream, it's a conversation about your finances. Don't let your emotions lead to too much friction with those who control the purse strings.
● Love: So your mind's wandering -- your heart's in the right place, and the daydreaming you're doing might include some visionary stuff vis-a-vis your romantic future. Just be careful operating heavy machinery!
● General: Don't rein in your instinct today, especially if it's telling you to kick up your heels and get a little bit wild. It's been too long since you've set your workload aside and really cut loose -- you're overdue for some fun. See a movie during your lunch hour, eat ice cream for breakfast, or take two naps in one day. It's time to indulge yourself -- you won't get in trouble! And if today just isn't the day for goofing off, then at least schedule in a fun date in the future.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You may have to let go of one of your babies right now. You have your heart set on a great idea, but no one else seems ready to get on board.
● Finances: Attitude is everything. In fact, it's the only thing that can get you through this rough patch. You can't exactly have a good time dealing with the financial situation you're in, but you can vow to make the best of it. If nothing else, look forward to living to tell the tale.
● Love: You ought not to judge a book by its cover, whether it's glossy and great-looking or dog-eared and plain. See what's inside -- after all, this is about finding something for your heart, not your coffee table.
● General: Be wary of any people who like to take the problems in their private life and broadcast them for the world to hear. Ignore them as much as you can -- their quest for attention is not admirable, and they are not trying to gain attention in a legitimate way. Airing dirty laundry might titillate some gossip mongers, but it is only going to confuse an already confusing situation. Steer clear of the drama that is unfolding and just focus on your own life.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Better be flexible and ready to drop an item or two from your agenda. No matter how much work you have to do, little interruptions will set your schedule back in unavoidable ways.
● Finances: Take your time sorting out your financial issues. Whether you're coming up with a new budget, moving your investments around or simply balancing your checkbook, use the Be Here Now approach to life. Pay attention and give it as much time as the task requires. Whatever else is on your mind is simply an unnecessary distraction.
● Love: Everything's open to review now, if not dramatic, tumultuous change. It may be a confusing time for your heart, but keep calm and you'll see that it's also a time of myriad possibilities.
● General: You will find a great deal of comfort in your daily routine today, so embrace the sameness and don't try to change things just for the sake of it. What might seem dull and boring to other people, you find interesting and rewarding. All your confusion is starting to clear up -- this is a time to revel in your accomplishments and savor the success. The people who crave constant action are the people who aren't happy with themselves.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: If a recent brainstorming session with a colleague proved surprisingly fruitful, consider keeping them in the loop on this proposal. Sometimes two heads are better than one.
● Finances: Everything is relative, even your wealth. Things are not as dire as you think as long as you have what really matters in life. In fact, you are rich by most standards. Whining and feeling awful are definitely inappropriate. If you find yourself contemplating them, give yourself a severe reality check.
● Love: You know not to lose it if romantic matters aren't quite going your way -- it's only temporary, and getting upset won't help matters. Enjoy friends and have fun; this phase will be over before you know it.
● General: Today is the perfect time to mix things up and get a little bit silly! Hard work can wait for a while -- it's not going anywhere anytime soon. So stop worrying so much about work or school -- you can finish what you need to finish: there is still plenty of time. Right now, you should start exploring the more romantic and exciting aspects of life. And the romance doesn't have to be love related -- investigate romantic music, fashion, art and anything else that stimulates your emotions.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Issues brewing on the home front may distract you from your mission at work and force you to reevaluate your priorities. This problem won't go away on its own; focus on nothing else until it's solved.
● Finances: There's nothing quite like helping someone else. When you meet someone who shares your passion, though, the two of you can't figure out how to relate to each other. You could duke it out to decide who gives and who receives, or you can pool resources to help someone else. In strictly financial terms, the latter is your best bet.
● Love: Talk about hot -- it's unseasonably warm wherever you are at the moment, what with your turned-up sexiness making temperatures rise. Fan the crowd and offer 'em a cool beverage while you make things even hotter.
● General: Your imagination will be strong today, but try not to let it carry you away! You have to maintain control and see the world for how it truly is. In any situation where you are meeting someone new today, make sure you keep your feet on the ground and take people at face value -- drawing conclusions or making assumptions about who they are or what they want from you could take you down the wrong track. Accept things for what they claim to be.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Keep an open mind -- understanding fresh ideas and developments should be a snap. You're unusually receptive to new ways of doing things lately.
● Finances: Ads that promise you can make money while you sleep simply don't appeal to you. Where's the fun in that or the sense of accomplishment? You earn both of those today as well as a profit. After all, you're not a child playing childish games, although you have just as much fun as one. Enjoy it all.
● Love: Anyone trying to catch your eye may experience difficulty; you're probably staring off into space, lost in your own little (or, knowing you, big philosophical) world. Try to tune in for a moment here and there.
● General: Beautiful words can turn anyone's head today, so if you have been working up the courage to make your move on a certain someone, today is the day to do it! Unleash your creative writing skills and think outside the box about how to approach this person in a way that will highlight your differences. Writing a love letter or even a love song will get you noticed and show them that you are someone who sees life in a unique way. All that extra effort is also flattering.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: For now, hedge your bets, and don't sign anything until you're certain it will pay off in the long term. It may be too soon to decide about a costly business proposal or radical change in direction.
● Finances: Any anxieties about things that can be postponed should be tabled along with the things themselves. You have enough to worry about without adding anything unnecessary to the mix. Every twinge of panic will cost you money in poor choices, so keep your head clear in every possible way.
● Love: How about expressing your admiration for a certain someone? You needn't make a big deal out of it; a sincere, straightforward compliment and a big smile are always welcome. Hold their gaze for just a moment too.
● General: You know that if you can try and stay grounded in your everyday life, you can balance the good days and the bad days and not be affected by the roller-coaster ride that life can take you on from time to time. But today it is going to be extremely difficult to keep your feet on the ground. You're in the mood for fantasy and would rather think about dreams and hopes than about the reality of what needs to be done. This will be fine if no deadlines are looming.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You've got the floor for the day, and you can really change the way things get done. Don't be shy about making your opinions known.
● Finances: There are patterns to everything in life, but for some mysterious reason, most of them remain hidden to us. You become aware of one today, though, and it is a major discovery. The gains made by this one realization give you the mental, financial and emotional freedom you'd only daydreamed about.
● Love: Being single means never having to say you're sorry -- at least not for doing what you want, when you want, with whom you want. Revel in it now, and be sure to leave some time for relaxing solo-style.
● General: It's one thing to be flexible, but it's quite another to let someone take advantage of you! Today, speak up if you feel as if people are walking all over you -- but do it maturely. You might feel too scared to make a scene, but who says you have to? There's no need to scream at them to get your point across. A quiet word to the right person will get you all the satisfaction you need. Display the maturity that others lack and rise above the drama to demand respect.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You deserve a break as much as the next person, but no one's going to give it to you unless you ask. Finish the project you're working on now before taking on another.
● Finances: The realm of money isn't as bewildering as all that, is it? Or are you playing dumb just to get some help from outside forces? It's time to take financial responsibility for yourself. After all, you've done it in all other areas of life. Be brave and dive right in.
● Love: Is it hot in here -- or could it be a case of spring fever? Don't be surprised if you're feeling a bit frisky and falling in love (or at least developing a fresh crush) every other minute!
