● General: Don't let that temper get away from you, especially if you're working on a project around the house with your special someone. You have things to do, and you're quite ready to get them done. Be nice and be cooperative -- and be sure to save some energy for recreation tonight. After all that work, along with what you've been dealing with lately, you know you've earned it.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: It's a good time to practice those sensitive communication skills -- someone needs to tell you something but doesn't know how to start. Open up and let them know they're safe speaking with you.
● Finances: You are nearing the point of no return. You already know that being out of touch can have a lasting effect on a friendship and the same is true for your investments. You can either start looking over someone's shoulder or hope to see that money on the other side.
● Love: If you've been feeling a little checked out of the love scene, prepare to re-enter it now. A totally new tactic -- a setup, an Internet connection, a chance encounter -- yields results.
● General: You're on the lookout for your someone special -- and you absolutely will not stop until you have them clearly in your sights. If you're attached, it's easy. Spoil them rotten tonight. If you're not, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to get out of the way and let them approach you without giving them 'that look.' Make it easy on them, just this once.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You're like an old-school preacher, full of fire and ready to convince all the unbelievers. You might blow some people away with your confidence, but you'll attract more than you scare off.
● Finances: Someone has already betrayed you and it will take a small miracle for your finances to recover. Look out for others because it could happen again if you let yourself become complacent. Your money really isn't the most important thing in life, but there are some philosophical lessons to be learned from the experience.
● Love: Your friends depend on you for your consistent caring and dependable devotion. If you're feeling extra sensitive, call on them for a little of the same -- they'll help you cushion your tender heart.
● General: As you've no doubt realized over the past week or so, no matter how much you'd like it to, love doesn't run on a schedule -- especially not this kind of love. You've found someone who's really appealing to your intellect and your brain -- as well as to your eyes. Who's to say how it will end? Only the two of you. If you're smart, do what you can to make sure the evening ends with a lovely, romantic kiss.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Your timing is just right, and you can see that you need to move right away. You're full of confidence and can see your opportunity just before it opens up -- so dive for it!
● Finances: Don't waste your breath preaching. The only way you can affect people is by being a living example. If that means making a great financial sacrifice, then don't be afraid to do it. Your balance will rise on its own power once you make that original emotional investment.
● Love: Try being more of an observer and less of an actor, just for today. You'll pick up on some signals you've been missing, just by being supremely aware.
● General: Ready to let go and let the universe handle things? Mostly those tricky matters going on between family members? Well, it's about time. There's only so much you can do to start with, and once you've exhausted those efforts, it will be up to them to take the ball and run with it. If they do, all the better. If they don't, resolve to offer your help from a distance. You can't live someone's life for them.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Something doesn't seem right to you, and it's your job to share that skepticism with your coworkers. It might not be easy, especially if the offender is popular with the masses, but you can do it.
● Finances: It may feel as though something is being torn from your hands, but don't despair. It's going to a better place. The reality that there is more to life than just you is a great comfort to you right now. After all, being the center of the universe has become a bit of a burden. You finally enjoy relaxing as just another human being.
● Love: The love energy's all gummed up someplace, so what to do? Direct your trademark caring where it really counts -- to yourself. Think pampering, relaxing and treats. Indulge a friend, too, for karmic bonus points.
● General: You've never run short on charm and you never will. Right about now, that talent will come in extremely handy, too -- even more so than usual, that is. Everyone's bored and needs to be entertained. Open up your mouth, allow the hilarity roll out, and let every charming syllable slip from your lips.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You're all about finding the root causes of the current malaise, and it won't take long before you're smiting evildoers within the ranks. It will all end amicably, and you might even see a better position out of it.
● Finances: What you're dealing with is not exactly petty. In fact, it's the kind of thing that can earn you hell to pay. So don't let anyone convince you that this particular indulgence is fun. Let them know it's just too far outside the bounds for you, and don't mince words.
● Love: You want to love deeply, and you've got no patience for those just skating over the surface. Follow your heart, and let the flighty ones follow theirs -- telling them about it is a waste of breath.
● General: Ready to dig your heels in and defend what you believe in? Bet you are -- and bet you're quite eager to do it, too. If you're up against someone who's not as well armed as you are -- verbally, at least -- (which, at this moment, includes just about everyone) try not to be too critical. Why show someone up if that's not necessary?
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Don't let anyone dissuade you from asking tough questions. You've got a free pass right now, as long as you're honest with yourself and others about what you want to know and why.
● Finances: Some things you have to force yourself to do, no matter how painful they are. Other things the universe insists on, no matter how much kicking and screaming you do. You get a bit of both today, unfortunately. The good news is you live to tell the tale and that includes bragging rights. Be proud of the financial responsibilities you're able to juggle single-handedly.
● Love: Conduct a reality check with regard to your romantic goals, and then double-check with a friend. You may be overlooking something wonderfully attainable while holding out for the highly unlikely.
● General: The heavens have decided to increase your charm and make you even more intensely persuasive. Of course, that's something you've been good at for a long time, and you've never really needed any help with it. Still, your skill at the rules of etiquette will make what's already a charming evening go along even more smoothly. Remember, it's what you do best and what others expect of you. Smile pretty.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Get in the way of the next big catastrophe -- you can make the difference between success and failure, but you have to act quickly. Most people will get behind you when you warn them.
● Finances: When you're too intellectual about a subject, you miss its essence. It takes a great leap of faith for you to give up the rational side of a deal and accept what you know on a gut level. The returns won't be the most important sign of success for a change.
● Love: If you love something, set it free -- you've heard the saying. Well, you don't have to let go altogether, but clutching like crazy tends to be kind of a turn-off. Hold on loosely.
● General: There's something going on behind the scenes -- a very big something -- and you've been privy to it for some time. You don't have permission to let anyone know about it, which goes double for whoever you're sure is already involved. It may be tough to keep quiet, but you need to do it, so you will. Relax. You'll be proud of yourself when it's all over.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You can attract all kinds of new people to your team or larger organization. It's not just about marketing -- it's also a good time for recruitment and in-house talent-poaching.
● Finances: What you are contemplating is much larger than you are and risk isn't even the biggest issue. You could save way more than money if you go through with things as planned, as painful as they may seem, than if you back out. Take a deep breath and commit.
● Love: Put your considerable (some would say magical) powers of regeneration to work on your own heart. You can heal an old wound now in remarkably short order -- and be ready to move on.
● General: You're the life of the party right now, and around people is where you want to be. Jump into the festivities with both feet, show off your conversational skills and slay 'em with your wit. Anyone new you meet will be instantly enamored with you. If you're single, one of these fresh admirers may turn into something romantic; if you're coupled up, your honey will get a kick out of this social butterfly version of you.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: It's hard to cope with the mundane parts of your job sometimes, but right now you're having an especially hard time seeing the point of it all. Take a long break and try to think big.
● Finances: You may be feeling like you're at the bottom of the heap, but you'll soon have quite a better view. In fact, the vista lets you observe things about your financial partners that may shock you. Remind yourself that it's not really about friendship.
● Love: One minute you want to be alone, the next you're bemoaning your singledom. Let the moods come and go, but try to figure out why you're flip-flopping so wildly at the moment.
● General: It's not just your loved ones who are so darned pleased with what you've been able to successfully tackle lately, it's also the higher-ups who've been watching you to see if you're ready for a bump up the career ladder. You know you're worthy -- of both their attention and affection -- and you've proven it. Once the news arrives, and it will, let loose and do just a tad of celebrating. You've certainly earned this.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: It might be time for a promotion, or maybe you'll just see your reputation climb a few notches in the public eye. Whatever happens, you are in a good position to ask for or call in favors.
● Finances: You're so idealistic that it feels hard for you to accomplish much, considering the mere mortals you have to work with. But you can have a stronger influence over those around you than you realize. Start getting others into your camp. Consider it a form of pre-selling.
● Love: You're a hard worker, so work hard on discerning what's in your heart. Put your determination behind some serious introspection, and you'll come up with some insights that'll move you to higher heights.
● General: Judging a book by its cover isn't your style, but you'll want to be extra open to good things coming in funny packages now. Watch for an unexpected connection with an unlikely person, for instance. What they have to offer may not be immediately apparent, but sometimes the kind of charm you have to uncover is even better than what's right on the surface. You're probably just the person to appreciate it.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You are more amped up than usual, and you might feel like jumping off in a new direction entirely. As long as you leave yourself an escape route, you will do well to follow your heart.
● Finances: Every new member you win over to your club rings a bell. The sound is more satisfying than anything else, including adding up your profits. Focusing on what has real value means focusing on people today. Put all thoughts of money aside.
● Love: Concerns about actively trying to advance your love life thankfully give way to just feeling good and expanding in all directions. Let your visionary side win out over the worrier.
● General: This relationship is more than ready for Stage Two, so if you're thinking of taking that giant leap toward intimacy, don't hesitate. You can do it now, and rest assured that it will all work out quite well. If this someone is taken, however, you might want to cool your heels and do not pass Go. There's no reason to share affections with anyone. You're loving, compassionate and more than worth the effort it takes to have you. Say that, and say it firmly -- to them, but also to yourself.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: It's a good time to be you, even if it seems like the competition is heavier than ever. One secret lurking under the surface plays to your strengths: Your rivals can't see much farther than the ends of their noses.
● Finances: You can't help but do the right thing today but you may not recognize that. It may feel like the universe is kicking you when actually luck is on your side. The returns on these transactions take a while to appear. Have faith that they will.
● Love: Now that your brain and heart are turned back on full power, take a critical look at what's going on in your love life. Diversify your options, but don't get too deep with anything you're unsure of.
