● General: New experiences are waiting for you out there in the world, but you won't have the time to start exploring them fully unless you clear off your plate! Make room for adventure today by completing all those half-finished tasks on your list. And if you have to, ask for help. At least one person owes you a big favor, so why not call it in? Your health is good, but it could be better. It's time to find a way to inject more exercise into your daily routine.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Keep a level head and you'll be the one everybody turns to when things get rough. Tempers may be short around the office today, but that's no reason to lose your cool.
● Finances: Plodding along is the tried and true way to get ahead, but don't miss opportunities to pounce when you see them. It's not the way to becoming successful -- though it could drop a few coins in your kettle. Stay alert today for any small change that may present itself.
● Love: Cultivate an air of mystery when encountering new people -- particularly hot ones. Sure, your usual brash approach is sexy, but you'll get the best results now by playing it on the sultry, silent side.
● General: The prettiest packages sometimes hide the ugliest things, so keep that in mind when you encounter someone or something that seems too good to be true today. Just because it glitters does not mean it's a golden opportunity. People turn on the charm when they lack other qualities -- and sometimes the brighter they shine, the more you should avoid them. Keep asking questions until you feel as if you've seen the truth about what is in front of you.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: No one can challenge your credentials. After all, the best defense is a strong offense. Make sure you know your stuff inside and out, so you won't get caught off guard.
● Finances: You have a deep enough understanding of right and wrong to resist temptation, even when money is involved. If you need a refresher course, talk to someone who is enlightened. Don't let the greed of others drag you down where you ultimately don't want to be.
● Love: Little things about a new person may be more telling than what they have to say. Manners count, and if you tune into their nonverbal cues, you'll learn a lot about them -- and how they feel about you.
● General: If you are involved in any type of legal negotiations, get prepared for things to move to the next stage today. It's time to deal with paperwork and make that final commitment. You need to stay on top of all details right now and take no shortcuts, but you can do it -- in fact, you've been waiting for this for a long time. Just remember not to accept any gray areas or vague terms. Your life is all about black and white facts right now -- you need to know exactly what you're getting into.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: You never know who's you watching over their shoulder, so let your coworkers work out their own conflicts. Your plate's full enough without getting involved in other people's business.
● Finances: When the numbers start swimming in front of your eyes, you know it's time for a break. The more confusing the situation is, the more likely you are to just put your money on any square -- but don't make decisions when things are so unclear. Regaining control could be as simple as taking a break.
● Love: Good times, bad times, you know you've had your share -- and right about now you can expect to get plenty of both. Never fear if a romantic door shuts; another window of love opportunity will be wide open.
● General: If a blur of social obligations has left you exhausted, then get some well-deserved alone time today. Treat yourself to a quiet dinner, or rent your favorite movie and just chill out on the couch. It's not selfish to want to be by yourself -- it's actually quite healthy. You need downtime to recharge. So when you do get back in a social frame of mind, you'll be charming and fun to be around. Super-social friends may not understand this inward phase you're going through, but they will accept it.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You'll be glad you reached out when a business partner's expertise proves invaluable today. Don't hesitate to use others as a resource -- two heads, as they say, are better than one.
● Finances: Things go well or badly depending on how you get your message across. People may misinterpret what you say but they can't misinterpret the numbers. Put everything in writing so it is crystal clear. You're the messenger and the last thing you want is to get shot for what you are merely delivering.
● Love: What, no dozen roses on your doorstep? Romantic matters may be on hold currently, but that doesn't mean you don't deserve flowers. Get some for yourself, and stop to smell 'em frequently.
● General: Something high up on your wish list is getting tantalizingly close to becoming yours today, thanks in part to the genuine and magnanimous charm you have been showing to a powerful person. You've been incredibly generous to them and they want to return the favor. Accept their gift with graciousness, and do not try to play it down. If you work too hard at the modesty act, they're going to think twice about whether you deserve it or not! Just say thank you and mean it.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You need to look out for your own interests before you can take care of the interests of others. Don't work yourself into the ground, or your physical and mental health may start to suffer.
● Finances: Making a good impression is almost as important as having something valuable to offer. Don't get completely sidetracked by your own appearance, though. The rest of your package counts, too. Make sure you have something to say once you get your foot in the door.
● Love: If all is in order, you're hanging out with someone who's absolutely charmed by your outspoken (and hilarious) outlook on the world. If they're taken aback, though, don't soft-pedal it -- move on.
● General: A family obligation will cause a bit of conflict with you and a friend or sweetie today... but you should definitely take a risk. Do what you really want to do right now and just be prepared for whatever the consequences may be. If you're currently unattached, someone you meet through work will provide lots of opportunity for sizzling romance. Be more generous in your assessment of people who don't quite understand what you're about. They'll get it soon enough.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: It's okay to have some fun. And why not? You're not in the mood for the boring, routine details of your job today. Put the serious stuff off for now and try on a little spontaneity for a change.
● Finances: Your ambition could use a healthy dose of, well, ambition. You're letting yourself sink into complacency and your bank account reflects that fact. Get yourself pumped up. Try taking a critical look at your entire financial picture. If all else fails, get creative with where you take your budgetary ax.
● Love: Yes, romance is important, but the other ties that bind also need your careful attention and well-known dedication. Check in with your family or your family of friends, and nurture existing relationships.
● General: Today is the perfect day to get back in touch with your culinary skills, no matter how much of a novice you may be. Making meals for people you love is a great way to express your personality, exercise your creativity and explore new cultures. Plus, it's a great way to save money! Being in the kitchen will be relaxing because you can let your mind wander as you concentrate on whipping up a delicious dinner or fabulous batch of chocolate chip cookies.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: If you disagree with the direction a project is taking, don't hesitate to express your opinion. But be prepared to back down, especially if you're the sole dissenting voice. Just make sure you have a better alternative.
● Finances: Watch out, because weird feelings are on the horizon. It's almost better to be sentimental than to be in the present. Money can only go so far in healing the situation, but it's certainly better than nothing. Spare no expense.
● Love: If you've had something on the tip of your tongue, don't be surprised if it suddenly rolls off with more eloquence, grace and humor than you'd have thought possible. You charmer, you!
● General: If you're having a tough time making a decision about something right now, that's an easy problem to overcome -- all you have to do is trust your instincts. And if you can't get in touch with your gut easily, just wait. Be patient, and you will soon start to sense what the right choice is and what feels best. You have to ignore how people might react to your choice because you have no way of knowing for sure. You can't see the future, you can only aim for it.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Don't sell yourself short -- one opportunity often leads to another. In fact, you have more options than you realize. All you have to do is keep your eyes open and maintain a willing attitude.
● Finances: Butting heads can get you in big trouble. You're much better off getting along with others than you are trying to win by brute force. Money shouldn't buy a winning position anyway. Communicate well with those you are involved with before you resort to extreme measures.
● Love: Before you ask that hottie out, ask around just a little bit. You'd be surprised at what's revealed by asking their friends about them -- not to mention asking a question or two of that hottie directly.
● General: Let go of negative things today -- it will be easier than ever before because your mind is eager to move on to more positive endeavors. One way is to release yourself from being responsible for other people's happiness -- you have to let them take care of their own issues. Instead, start focusing more on the new opportunities coming your way soon. Have faith and hope that things are only going to get better, and they will.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: There's no shame in a setback, of course, but you might want to wait for better odds. So before you sign off on a risky venture, make sure you've considered all the possible ramifications.
● Finances: Stay focused on your bank account, because there could be a sneak attack when you expect it the least. It's nothing evil, but it will cost you nonetheless. Don't go out spending money because that makes you the most vulnerable to a serious loss of funds.
● Love: A party would be fun; a theme party would be even better; a theme party you can crash that's full of intriguing strangers would be the best. Seek out some unusual entertainment -- and the folks that go along with it.
● General: It isn't hard to hold on to your idealistic attitude when you have great people behind you, supporting every step you take. It's when you're stuck with negative people who love to complain that you start to get pessimistic about where things are going. So make sure you're hanging out with positive forces, people who know how to keep you focused and on track. Stick with the folks who aren't interested in tearing you down to make themselves feel better.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Hot tips may not pan out all the well, so test the water before jumping in with both feet. And definitely consider the source when pondering the next big thing.
● Finances: When it comes to making it through lean times, you've already demonstrated how much stamina you have. You're ready to relax, though, and there's no end in sight. Keep up the good fight even though your energy is flagging, because although it's not clear, your plans are actually working.
● Love: Warning: Things may not work out exactly as planned now, including in the romantic realm. If you can wrap your mind around this, though, and not stress out, you'll be in an excellent position to make the most of it.
● General: Anything is possible today. It's a very expansive day, and you're more positive than you've felt in a long time. But today's strong vibe of opportunity will encourage bad events just as much as positive outcomes, so be sure to stay skeptical as much as possible. Consequences are a fact of life in whatever path you choose, so make sure you do something good for you -- both emotionally and physically.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Your competitors are looking for an edge, and you don't want to be the one to give it to them. Even though you think you have this whole project under control, don't sit on your laurels.
● Finances: If you're tired, it's because you're wasting your energy instead of using it wisely. Pinpoint accuracy can accomplish more than flailing away all day long. Disciplining yourself is a must. Consider your efforts to be money and you'll be more likely to conserve them and use them wisely.
● Love: Now this is more like it -- party time, with you at the center of the action. You're masterful at introducing people now, including yourself, so mix, mingle and generally have a fantastic time.
● General: Grab something to hang onto today, because your creativity is about to take off like a rocket! It'll be simple as can be for you to find ways to add more fun, color, music and beauty to your life. All you have to do is pay attention to things that confuse you -- when your brain can't wrap itself around something, it starts coming up with real innovation, helping you create something new. Not surprisingly, your mood will stay bright and positive throughout the day.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Remember, everyone starts on the ground floor. So even if your ultimate goal is a long way off, don't let that prevent you from doing whatever you need to do to achieve it.
● Finances: You're ready to beg for help. Before you do, remind yourself that you got yourself where you are and you can get yourself back where you need to be, too. Don't count on help from above, especially since you really don't need it. It will only make you further in debt.
● Love: Listen up! And look around! Increase your awareness of everything -- and everyone -- around you, and you'll notice some rather surprising (and possibly hot) undercurrents to what's happening on the surface.
