● General: Hey, accidents happen. You can't beat yourself up forever if you got someone's name wrong, sent an email to the wrong person or dropped something on someone's foot. These things are just part of living, so all you can do is make the best of any awkward situation you find yourself in today. You have the tact and charm necessary to get anyone on your good side. The best move after a big boo boo is to smile and offer a heartfelt apology -- people know when you're being genuine.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Tiny tasks are mounting to create a huge, troublesome obstacle, and it's immensely frustrating. You might wish you were exploring new territory, but for now, you've got to clean house.
● Finances: Just who is the snake charmer and who is the snake is a bit of a mystery. You're both beguiled and beguiling. You could end up losing money and still feel like you've made a profit, so bright is the light glinting in your eyes. Keep your eye on the person doing the shining if you can't keep track of your wallet.
● Love: Your energy and excitement make you one hot number right now, so get out and do something you're enthusiastic about. It's when you're having this much fun -- and looking this good -- that romance tends to sneak up on you.
● General: Seeing someone from your past will trigger some weird feelings today, and you might not know what to do about it. This sentimentality is not a productive place to be in right now, and you should seek out some sort of distraction to help you work your way out of it. Switch your focus away from emotional ideas and toward analytical data, numbers and dates. So if you haven't done your taxes yet, this may be the perfect day to fill out the forms.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: People will have a hard time saying no to you. Your charisma is off the charts, so exercise your leadership skills -- or, better yet, work on bringing new clients on board.
● Finances: It'd be great to spend much of the day on yourself, but you just can't afford to. Besides, that would only encourage your lazy ways. Think of making money as the only healthy choice. When it comes to this kind of exercise and discipline, you just can't overdo it.
● Love: Showing what you know is one thing, but showing off is quite another. Be subtle about your brilliance -- it'll shine even more if you slip it in casually instead of delivering a monolog.
● General: The tide is starting to turn in your life, and things are definitely changing for the better. But are you ready to take advantage of the new opportunities coming your way? You are if you have a path to follow and a plan to guide you. This is the right time to build that plan -- and it's the right time to ask around for advice from friends who have been down this way before. They know what you need to know and can tell it to you in a way that you'll understand.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Whether you're at work or sitting at home, financial issues will pop up all day. They might not be intensely problematic, but they must be dealt with promptly.
● Finances: You're a slave to money one minute and free of it the next. That kind of duality has crushed stronger people than you. You almost long for your former, beholden ways when life was so much easier and your choices were few and far between. Keep your eyes on the middle ground.
● Love: Aren't you opinionated! While it might turn some types off, the right people love it when you stand up for what you think, whether you're being silly or serious. Look for a hot debate now.
● General: Today, focus on the people who give back -- they deserve more of your time and gratitude. The troublemakers who take, cause waves and create drama force your attention their way, and it's always a waste of your energy. Ignore the drama kings and queens you encounter today -- every time you fall for their antics, you give them encouragement to continue their toxic behavior. If you want more peace in your life, spend more time with mellow people.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Basic tasks and errands will pile up too high if you let them. Forget about the big issues that have been troubling you, and throw yourself into your daily routine.
● Finances: Some people need things to go from bad to worse before they wake up to reality, and some people need them to go from bad to worse again and again before they change their ways. You've had a long wait, but your personal liberation is finally arriving. It's been quite a show to watch.
● Love: You're raring to go and living for the moment, and good for you for doing so. You may, however, encounter a romantic situation that requires just a little forethought rather than sheer impulsive action.
● General: You could be forced into a partnership with someone you don't know well -- or don't like very much. Unfortunately, you can't change the situation; you can only get used to it. Summon your positive attitude and work on finding a bright side to this arrangement -- because there is one. Volunteer to take on tasks that you enjoy and can work on at your own pace, without your partner's interference. You may find yourself moving into an introverted mood, but that's okay.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You're feeling a little like a hermit lately, not wanting to face anyone. It's a short phase, so it's best to ride it out rather than force yourself to make calls.
● Finances: After what you've been through, you should know it doesn't take much money to have fun. But everyone gets complacent sooner or later no matter how severe your hardships of the past may have been. Remind yourself of the day when all it took to feel good was knowing you were free.
● Love: Your romantic compass is guiding you unerringly in some pretty sweet new directions of exploration. You've definitely got your heart's bearings, and there really aren't any wrong turns at this juncture. Tally ho!
● General: Today you will feel a strong energy to initiate something new, which is perfect -- because you are in a superb phase to begin new projects and new relationships. Social and entertainment-oriented festivities are favored over business or school meetings as great places to build things, but either way you will be able to get lots of planning and preparation done if you start on the major tasks today. Enlist the help of a friend who has a list of killer contacts.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Everything that's been confusing you lately will clear up or resolve itself without your making any moves. It all clicks for you today.
● Finances: When the cage door opens, you won't hesitate to go crashing out of it. Go ahead, make a big splash, because this is the kind of occasion that warrants one. You're being released from a lifetime financial obligation or getting out from under a mountain of debt. Whatever the particulars, a huge sigh of relief is just the beginning.
● Love: If a detour is tempting, why not take it? Go ahead -- toss your preexisting plans out the window and veer wildly in a different direction. It's good for your heart, and fresh possibilities are a given.
● General: Just when you think you can hit 'send' on that important email today, you'll notice a spelling error. You'll be able to start things and work on things, but completion is a whole other matter. So focus on what you can do, and launch a few new ideas or tasks. That way, you can stay motivated and occupied by all of the details you have to manage. Checking things off your list isn't going to be possible, but you'll still get things done and feel a sense of accomplishment.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Mix it up with people today. You have a lot of insight and wisdom to offer. Plus, you'll get just as much in return, if not more.
● Finances: Incredible how little it takes to go from feeling oppressed to feeling super. Money may not be the most important thing in the world, but it certainly has a profound effect on your life. You'll throw balance to the wind and take feeling super any day of the year.
● Love: Time for some activity! It doesn't much matter what it is -- bowling, a lecture on rocket science, a bake-off, a dance class -- so long as you're in the thick of some kinetic energy and interesting people.
● General: If your social life is starting to feel too boring, take time today to cook up some new ideas on how to liven it up a bit! Why not take a walk on the wild side? The people over there seem so much more interesting, don't they? Step out and go somewhere you have never been before with a few of your favorite people. They want to spend some time with you, so why not do your friends a favor and grace them with an hour or two of your time?
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Any favors you do for others will earn double points for future payments. Try to keep from saying no today, even if you think you have too much on your plate.
● Finances: It may seem easy to just give in to your oppressor, but you'd gladly throw all of your money into the fire rather than give up fighting for it. Way to go, Tiger. You'll soon see a shift in the balance of power in your favor so continue summoning as much patience as you can possibly muster.
● Love: Rein in your wild side now. You'll get a lot more out of observing than hogging center stage, and you'll get a more realistic idea of who you might be attracted to rather than just who's attracted to you.
● General: Lots of fun social stuff is coming up, but you need to be selective. You have a few serious responsibilities that you need to take care of before you go trotting off to have mindless fun, so don't overbook your social calendar -- you'll only end up getting stressed out. But if you cover the tiny details of your responsibilities early in the day, you will be able to free up time later on to have fun. So get work out of the way early.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Your Irritability Quotient is through the roof, so don't be surprised if everyone -- your kids, your spouse, your customers, your coworkers -- are conspiring to work your last nerve. It will pass soon.
● Finances: It may seem as if the universe just hasn't heard your hopes and wishes, but it's more accurate to say that even the universe can't make things happen overnight. You'll soon see that your desires have been known all along. The waiting was just preparation time.
● Love: When you think about it, what have you got to lose? With your friendly manner, a direct overture is a win-win situation. If they say yes, hooray; if not, you know where you stand and are ready for whatever's next.
● General: There are lots of small details to wrangle today, but you will flourish under the pressure and leave people impressed with your abilities! It's an excellent day for planning and finding facts, so you might want to sit yourself in front of the computer for a while. It's exciting knowing that all of the answers you need are right at your fingertips, and your brain is ready to soak them all in. You'll have a blast and time will fly by.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You're swimming in positive energy, and it gets stronger over long distances. So consider different ways to reach out to new customers, who are as removed as possible from your usual markets.
● Finances: You've put all your energy into working for someone else's benefit and it's starting to feel like slave labor. You'll be liberated soon enough. Make sure it happens without any blood on your hands. The last thing you need to bring with you on your hasty retreat is guilt.
● Love: Plan for solo rather than social time if you can. Others are liable to bug you a bit now, while time spent recharging your batteries is time well spent. Treat yourself to something special and enjoy your own company.
● General: Your eye for details will help you notice things that no one else pays attention to today -- but hold on to these little revelations until a time when they will be more useful. These are your secrets to divulge in any manner you see fit. A new person on the scene is providing a great deal of entertainment, so hang out with them for a while and distract yourself from the burning secret you're just dying to tell. Having fun will help you hold onto this valuable information.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: A little zip will go a long way, so be wary when dealing with loved ones. They'll be extra-sensitive to perceived slights, and you might come across as less engaged than usual.
● Finances: You'll experience something new -- freedom. Although it's personal freedom as opposed to financial freedom, it's just about the most valuable thing you can ever experience in your lifetime. You're finally able to connect with those around you rather than feeling enslaved by your personal issues. No amount of money can buy the feeling.
● Love: Changes of the sudden, exciting variety are in the air, so grab some of that energy and infuse it into your love life. A new idea is just a hop, skip and a jump from very sweet reality.
● General: A frustrating friendship is causing you to wonder what you ever saw in this person. People change over time, and unfortunately they don't always grow in the same direction. Accept who this person is becoming, but don't keep them in your life if they make you feel bad or bring out your insecurities. Friendships are elective relationships, they do not always have to be lifelong commitments. There is nothing wrong with moving on so you both can be happy.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You're better off moving quickly and figuring it all out on the fly. So don't fret if you don't know absolutely everything about your new project before getting started.
● Finances: Someone gets a perverse thrill acting as if they own you, but you are about to give them the surprise of a lifetime. Paying off an old debt is liberating, to say the least. Keeping your steady savings a secret may have been harder than the work itself, but the shock value alone makes it all worth it. Enjoy.
● Love: Sure, it's natural to think about how a certain romantic situation might evolve, but don't get too carried away with your fantasy. It might prove to distract when it comes to what's really going on.
