● General: If you're feeling like a little kid lost in the woods today, just follow the path you're on. Eventually, as the day progresses, thing will become clearer and you'll start to feel more confident about the direction you're headed in. It's not wise to try new experiments today: there's just too much uncertain energy around you, and it's motivating some people to point you in the wrong direction. Spend the day plugging away at your usual routine and avoid any heavy discussions.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: There's no sense in staying in a position that isn't doing it for you anymore. Feeling like you're running in place? Maybe it's time for a reevaluation of your duties.
● Finances: Your day looks something like this: You wanting to rush out and have fun, but having to stick around to deal with dull details instead. Don't bother getting frustrated, it's all part of the routine if not the master plan. And it keeps you from spending money if nothing else. Make looking on the bright side one of your challenges.
● Love: There's nothing like a little romantic competition to get your pulse racing, and there may be some of that in the air now. Just be sure you're genuinely interested rather than simply trying to win!
● General: If other people around you over react to an explosive situation today, the worst thing you can do is follow their example. Screaming at someone who has been rude or inconsiderate isn't going to mitigate the stress, it will only increase it. Be mindful of your role in every conversation, and try to be a force for mutual respect, not power struggles. You will have to take the high road today. Another day will come to get down and dirty.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Few things are more convincing than a sincere, heartfelt smile. Complaining won't get you anywhere. Turn on the charm if you really want to get your way.
● Finances: For once, you have nothing on your schedule. An open day is a thing of beauty. You can come up with plenty of ways to spend it that don't involve money, too. Courtship is out of the question without cash, but you can still find ways of bringing flowers and emotions into the picture. Have fun.
● Love: Pry your heart open to the mysteries of love now. If you step outside your usual approach -- even just a little -- you'll be open to a whole slew of new possibilities. It may be a little scary, but it could be mighty beautiful.
● General: Just because you disagree with someone doesn't mean you can't get along with them. In fact, they could end up being one of the most rewarding relationships in your life! Think about it -- if you chose not to be friends with people who think differently than you do, you'd have a very boring life. The back and forth in a relationship creates exciting intellectual possibilities and lots of fun debates. You have more to offer people than your agreement.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Don't sign anything until you're sure you aren't in over your head. Put off negotiations until you get a handle on who it is exactly that you're dealing with.
● Finances: Bills are weighing on you and their heft is beyond comprehension. That you're more upset than the situation warrants is no real consolation to you, either. The stress is your best motivator. Keep on skimping and saving until you have come out from under that heavy boulder on your shoulders.
● Love: While love may not be wafting around in the floral-scented air, it's a plain old great day to be you. It's times like these that fun is had and friendships flourish, which is all good when it comes to your heart.
● General: Something you've been waiting for is coming your way today, so you'd better open your eyes wider to see it when it comes along. It probably won't fit your expectations, but it's a perfect fit for where you are in your life right now. A tough choice you recently made in a work or school dilemma is finally paying off, and you will be given a chance soon to enjoy an extended stay in luxurious surroundings. Don't forget to bring along a gift for your hosts.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Don't hesitate to ask for exactly what you want. The other party will be more than willing to oblige. You're in a great negotiating position right now.
● Finances: You're connecting with something other than money and it feels great. It actually leads you to more financial security than simply chasing cash would. You can plan on succeeding even before you see any signs of it, it's that much of a good fit. Start making and communicating your blueprint.
● Love: Looking for the best when it comes to romance is the right thing to do -- after all, you deserve it. But someone who shares your values can be hot in an unexpected way. Don't rule 'em out at first glance.
● General: People love people who can make them feel good about themselves, and right now you're able to put smiles on faces without even trying -- so get ready to see your popularity skyrocket! Let your warmth guide you in any situation today, and give people supportive feedback that makes them embrace their differences. By reaching out and spreading so much positive energy, you will be earning a ton of good karma in return.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You need a new strategy for dealing with cutthroat colleagues. But don't toss your ethics out the window in the race to the top. As they say: If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
● Finances: You've cut all the fat out of your budget there is. You can't be any thriftier than the new normal. Reassessing your budget just won't squeeze out anything, so you'll have to start going after your overall strategy instead. There may not be ways to save more, but there definitely are ways to earn more.
● Love: Hot? You're practically on fire, with your good looks nearly retina-searing, your wit creating sparks all over the place and your warmth heart-melting. Why not fan the proverbial flames?
● General: The momentum on one of the hottest opportunities you have had in a long time has slowed down, but that doesn't mean it is fading away. Do not assume the worst in this situation -- as a matter of fact, you should assume the best. Chances are, a hold has been put on things for reasons that have nothing to do with you. During this time in a holding pattern, feel free to investigate any interesting new opportunities that pop up. Turn your impatience into curiosity.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Success is yours if you're willing to put in the extra effort. Resist the urge to cut corners now and you won't have to clean up any messes later. Any job worth doing is worth doing well.
● Finances: Feelings of disorganization and general helplessness have been hindering your progress. Things are starting to make sense now, and you can see the right path to take. A new project and its future achievements are just what you need to pull the loose ends of your life together.
● Love: When it comes to romance now, loosen up and let your instincts guide you. If you stop trying to control it and just experience what comes your way, your heart will tell you exactly what to do.
● General: Are you experiencing a bit of a writer's block or other obstacle that is keeping you from feeling as productive as usual? Then get outside today and take a long walk -- expanding your surroundings will help get your creative juices flowing and unblock your brain. The great outdoors is a great place to find a great new idea, so breathe in the oxygen and open up your mind to new ideas. Take the pressure off yourself by bringing someone else along on your walk.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Logic will prevail. But it may take longer than you'd like. Just when you thought everyone was ready to move forward, an interloper comes along and throws the whole process into disarray.
● Finances: You're too overwhelmed by your financial situation to do anything in other areas of your life, either. Sometimes hibernating is the best option, and today is the day to do just that. Or better yet, pretend you're in your own cozy cocoon, a beautiful butterfly just waiting to re-emerge.
● Love: Sharing your hopes -- about a particular person or your romantic situation in general -- with a friend helps you clarify what you want, which gets you one step closer to getting it. Listen closely to their take on it.
● General: When someone sings your praises today, be grateful -- but also be humble. Your pride is powerful, and it might come off as arrogant to the people who don't know you well. What these people think does matter, and unfortunately it's important to manage how you come off to others. Your reputation is something you need to cultivate more consciously. Don't act in a way that isn't true to who you are -- but you might want to tone things down.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Take advantage of your lead. There's no reason to wait around for people who don't get it -- let them catch up on their own time.
● Finances: Just how you stay afloat is one of your little secrets. It's almost a secret from you, too, because you're not quite sure how you manage it. The trick is in how you handle the small details, like the staples. But you're just doing what comes naturally. Like a cook who doesn't follow a recipe, you can't really help your friends out by sharing any tips.
● Love: You love a challenge, and you can expect one in the love department that will have you rethinking some major stuff. What's a challenge other than an opportunity for a fresh start?
● General: Hold off on making any major travel plans today. It's okay to narrow down your options, but you should definitely not sign any paperwork or make any deposits -- too much is up in the air. But don't worry -- critical information will soon come to light that causes you to make some modifications, and it will probably even help you save some money. In the meantime, organize your life well enough so that it can go on without you while you're away traveling.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: A new assignment isn't in your job description, but it is your responsibility. Be a good sport about this one -- you never know who's taking notes.
● Finances: It's your day to go over all the pesky details that have been sitting in the back of your mind bothering you. You'll find they're not as bad as you've been imagining. Too bad you can't take back all the energy you wasted stewing over them. Your situation isn't particularly rosy, but it's not dire, either.
● Love: Your excellent cheer and even better sense of humor have definite ripple effects now, with the positivity you're sending out touching all sorts of people. Is it good for your love karma? You bet.
● General: If you think a friend's new love interest isn't good enough for them, you have every right to voice your opinion to them -- but should you? This is dangerous territory, and it might be best to let this love affair just take its own course. By butting into other people's love lives, you run the risk of alienating them. After all, if they know you don't like their sweetie, then they're not going to be spending lots of time with you. Bite your tongue and observe things for a while.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You're the only one who's going to say what everyone else is thinking. After all, you aren't afraid of telling people exactly what's on your mind. Don't hold back, especially today.
● Finances: If you simply refrain from spending for the day, you will have achieved a lot. And considering that it's your typical day to reach for your wallet, that will take a Herculean effort on your part. But you have it in you to exert the kind of self-control called for, even if it leaves you sweating bullets.
● Love: Take extra care to read between the lines and heed your instinct when it comes to romance now. Whether it's intentional or not, people may be portraying themselves in an inaccurate way.
● General: Spend some time in an artistic pursuit today and create a physical representation of your next goal. Want to own a home? Make a collage of ideas from magazines. Looking for love? Write a poem about the perfect mate you're hoping to meet. Use your creativity to pave a path toward what you want in life. While it might not create the results you want overnight, at least it will get you focused on the positive sides of your goal instead of the struggle.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You won't get far by making enemies now, so keep your cards close to your chest until you know who's really on your side. Sometimes, you have to bluff.
● Finances: Now is your time to play catch up. Don't waste it. Go over all the details that are available to you, and then start digging up more. The success of a business deal next week depends on how well you prepare today. Remind yourself that if you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself.
● Love: You're not much into compromise, and when it comes to love, you're certainly not willing to settle. However, an idea you've got about a certain situation may not be entirely accurate. Don't cling to it.
● General: Good mental health, to some extent, depends on your good physical health right now -- so if you're feeling blue, you have to get active right away! When your blood is pumping those endorphins around your body, your mind starts to see things in a more positive and hopeful light. Diet is also an important consideration -- avoid anything that makes you feel too bogged down today, and try not to eat on the go. Sit down and enjoy whatever meal you're eating.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Everyone notices a selfless contribution. Devoting yourself wholeheartedly to the needs of the group now will pay big dividends later when you're yearning for some downtime.
● Finances: It's your day to relax and focus on relationships instead of money. You don't have to know all the facts or weigh the possible outcomes. All you have to do is know you're in good company before diving in. Everything else can wait for later.
● Love: Just because you're aware of someone else's romantic drama doesn't mean you have to add fuel to the fire. Offer your support, be compassionate and suggest to any gossipers that they do the same.
