● General: Everything you do today will have a bigger impact than you intend for it to have, so be careful. Laugh at someone's joke, and they may suddenly think they should be a stand-up comedian. Smile at a stranger and they may think you're flirting with them. But the good part of your potency today is that a little bit of action will go a very long way. So if you focus your attentions on a person you're trying to build a connection with, you can make lots of headway with them.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Communication is everything, especially if you feel a project has gone awry. Don't be afraid to check in with staffers and refine the schedule during your off hours. Your coworkers may prove surprisingly receptive to your suggestions.
● Finances: Money is great but it's not worth your soul. Using people to get ahead financially will just leave you rich on the outside and impoverished on the inside. You're staring at moral bankruptcy. You have what it takes to go toe to toe and come out victorious. Don't give in to temptation.
● Love: Set out to have a solo adventure, and you never know who you might meet. Go to a place where like-minded individuals can be found -- a cool cafe, an art gallery, your favorite gourmet shop -- and shop around.
● General: You have a big karmic payback coming your way today, so expect some interesting rewards for all the good deeds you have performed recently. This will be an educational and enriching day, and it will teach you many valuable lessons about how to win people over to your cause -- without sending them on a big guilt trip. You are learning more about how to use your charm to get ahead in your career prospects, and it is already starting to pay off.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Keep the upper hand and you're sure to come out ahead -- just don't bow down in a power struggle with a coworker. Brown nosers are definitely not welcome here.
● Finances: It's time to come at a problem from a different angle. If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again but expecting a different outcome, then you're coming dangerously close to fitting the description. Take a deep breath and find new ways to make money or shave it from your budget.
● Love: Be cautious when it comes to romantic matters. If there's something you can't quite pinpoint that doesn't seem right, now's not the time to press forward regardless. If it's worth it, it can wait.
● General: Today you will have a supernatural ability to cut right through all the noise and get to the real heart of any matter. You'll be an excellent peacemaker, a clever negotiator, and a respected leader -- so naturally your words will carry lots of weight right now. And even though keeping the peace is not your job, it will feel good to volunteer for that role. You like helping people get along! Today, you can make everyone happier -- and make your life much easier.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Incremental changes will lead to improvements now, so don't rely on an upheaval to fix the situation. You'll have to take things more slowly if you want to get your coworkers on board.
● Finances: Don't let yourself get all paranoid about your money. If anyone has a hidden agenda, it's you. All of your plotting and scheming is skewing the way you interpret the motivations of others. On the flip side, if you put in some old-fashioned hard work to get ahead, the entire world will look safe and welcoming to you.
● Love: Opposites may be extra attractive now, so be open to unusual types and use your versatile smarts to find out more about them. A few open-ended questions could end up in sweet agreement.
● General: It feels as if everyone has an opinion about how you should run your life right now -- your friends, family members and even a few of your busybody coworkers will have a few words of advice. You might not want to know what they think, but they'll tell you anyway -- and chances are it will be pretty interesting. Sure, little of it will be helpful, but they love thinking that they are helping you. So listen to them with an open mind. You have nothing to lose.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Make a solid offer, but don't promise more than you can deliver. The fate of a project or investment is in the hands of your customers or clients.
● Finances: Going from one extreme to the other is wearing thin. From poor to rich was a fun ride but the other way around was a bit rough. You're starting to think that middle of the road is the way to go. Make finding that financial balance your first priority.
● Love: If a coworker's asking for a few too many details about your love life, well, there's no reason you have to answer. Smile mysteriously and rush off to a 'meeting,' even if it's just with your next cup of coffee.
● General: A recent email from a former coworker or casual acquaintance has got you thinking hard about where you're going to take your life next. Future plans will definitely be on your mind today, although there is no need to nail down any particular plan of action. You're not quite in the right place yet for major moves. Stay put for now. Do some research and start exploring some of your wilder options. Have fun just thinking about where you could be in a decade.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You have too much going on right now, so keep your focus. Try a new approach to the same old routine -- it'll help. If you're not careful, the tedium of day-to-day tasks will drain your energy.
● Finances: You already know what you want. It's knowing how to get it that's a problem. Listening to little clues on the wind is a romantic image but it won't get you the money you need. That's about as effective as hoping for a pot of gold under a rainbow. Start looking into old fashioned hard work and sweat equity to fund your desires.
● Love: You make looking for love look easy -- and tremendously fun. Maybe it's because you're being your fabulous self and feeling friendly with the world rather than seeking any specific thing.
● General: In a contest of wills with a coworker today, you should try to take the more daring and aggressive position. Challenge them to make you believe in what they are saying. Even if you don't feel completely confident about playing devil's advocate, your bravado will go a long way toward letting them know you are a force to be reckoned with. Plus, you will be helping them to grow and communicate their ideas more clearly. Project more power than you think you have.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: No one will blame you for refusing to take on more than you can reasonably handle -- if you're not supposed to go in today, then don't. It's fine to seek responsibility, but don't hesitate to delegate if you're feeling overwhelmed.
● Finances: Hard work pays the bills, but if you're doing what you love then it's like being paid twice. Satisfaction is its own reward. If you once loved your job then you're starting to realize that the romance is finally back. It makes every workday a good day instead of a day in purgatory. Enjoy.
● Love: Love is refusing to go by your schedule now, which can be rather frustrating -- if you let it be. But if you set your agenda aside and go with the flow -- or better yet, take a risk -- you may get a big, beautiful surprise.
● General: Figuring out how to balance your life with the life of another person will finally start to get easier today! You're ready to make the necessary compromises and give them what they need -- without feeling like you are sacrificing your independence or your strength. You know how to clearly communicate with them too, which is probably the most important part. Suddenly your goals are aligned and you can make each other happy.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Deadlines are less important than getting it right, especially when the bottom line is at stake. So if you need this day to decompress, do it. And don't skimp on the fine print, even if someone is breathing down your neck.
● Finances: You are in uncharted waters. There is no real authority when it comes to the issues you're grappling with. Even though money is involved, remind yourself that you already know the basics of right and wrong. It shouldn't be all that hard to apply them to reaching the bottom line.
● Love: You may have some pretty big ideas about what you want from romance now, and good for you. Keeping them in mind -- and exploring them further -- makes it all the more likely you'll locate them.
● General: This day will be a good one because great news will come your way. But don't get too caught up in the moment -- doing so will distract you and keep you from being as effective with this new opportunity as you are capable of being. It's important to remember that your future depends on how you act today, so while being spontaneous and carefree is good for creating positive energy, you have to balance it with clear thinking and a focus on reality.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Figure out an exciting way to get your point across. After all, people respond better when you take a creative approach. Even if you have to dig into your own pocket to make it happen, it'll be worth it in the end.
● Finances: When it comes to breaking out of the rat race, you have plenty of good ideas. All you need is the confidence to start acting on them. You get a small push in the right direction today. It's an almost imperceptible nudge between the shoulder blades, from the universe to you. If you make good use of it, you'll be on your way.
● Love: If it seems too good to be true, it probably is -- heed the instinct that's telling you not to get too excited before you know more. Use your powers of investigation to confirm or deny that gut feeling.
● General: A couple of your closest friends are dying to schedule in some fun time with you! Try to reschedule or cancel plans to make yourself more available to them right now. Turn your ringer back on and start answering your phone, and don't let an email linger in your inbox for too long. Get back in touch with people and say 'yes' to every invitation you get. If you do, you'll enjoy a renewed time of fun and laughter. It's time to step out into the world again.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Stick with your grueling schedule for now. Don't worry so much about what others are doing and avoid getting frustrated if you're shouldering more than your fair share. The extra hours will pay off soon.
● Finances: You have the opposite of the Midas touch. You can spend a fortune on just about anything. Even the old standby of making your own lunch turns into an exercise in gourmet food when in your hands. Money flows like water on even the simplest things. Sigh.
● Love: You're likely extra happy-go-lucky at the moment, and it looks very good on you. Take your fine self out and about exploring, with a wing friend or solo, and keep an eye out for a lucky connection.
● General: More structure is coming into your life right now. And while you can rationally see how much easier it will make things in the long run, emotionally it's going to be difficult to get used to. You're resistant to change right now, which is unusual -- and temporary. There is something about sameness that is comforting, and that's okay. But if you keep things as they are for too long, you're going to prohibit your own emotional growth. Be patient and you'll get through.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Who knew things could go this smoothly? For once, everything seems to be going exactly as planned. Orders arrive on time, schedules are met, and everyone knows exactly what they need to do.
● Finances: You're going down your checklist of personal accomplishments, but you're still feeling restless and dissatisfied. That's okay, because that feeling is what motivates you to accomplish even more. If your plan is to move in a positive direction then your plans are working even if your feelings are negative.
● Love: It may suddenly become clear that part of your romantic ideals just aren't realistic. Do you want to hold onto that abstract perfection or find a real-deal romance, shortcomings and all?
● General: You know what it's like to be the new kid in school or on the team, so remember that feeling when a new person comes into your group today -- welcome them warmly. A simple smile can open up a million possibilities with this new person and get them in your court should any disagreements arise with other people. By positioning yourself as compassionate and supportive, you'll gain this person's trust and give them someone to talk to. Plus, they have useful news to share.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Don't be afraid to get specific. In fact, use your downtime to hone your pitch. Whether you're asking for a raise or pushing for a new assignment, the important thing is being clear about what you want.
● Finances: By their very nature your subliminal issues are unknowable. But do know that they are pushing you in the right direction every minute of every day. So if you're not sure why you do what you do, don't fight the mysterious feeling. Just be relieved that whatever their source, your baggage is just the right kind of ballast.
● Love: Getting involved with a group of people who believe in a cause you're passionate about could well lead to other sorts of passion. Get political, explore the arts or volunteer for the greater good.
● General: Your work alliances speak volumes about you, but are they saying the right things to the right people? Take a second look at the company you're keeping at the office and ask yourself if they are bringing you down or lifting you up. Make sure you're with the people who help your career, not hinder it. And in your private life, you're growing distant from certain people who would love to hear from you today. Give them a call and start a conversation again.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: No one will fault you for being a smart negotiator, so don't trust offers that seem too good to be true. Ask the tough questions now, and you won't get stuck paying the price later.
● Finances: It goes without saying you get paid for something. As they say, money doesn't grow on trees. But you're helping in ways that don't involve any pay at all, even though money is part of the equation. The benefits are a happy byproduct of whatever you do today.
● Love: A mysterious silence suits you at the moment -- especially since if you do talk, you're prone to babble. Try communicating with a smile, body language, and eye contact; it's amazing what you can say without a word.
