● General: You're more observant than usual, especially when you stand to benefit from your discoveries. Your eyes are open wide and nothing escapes your gaze. This is a great day for detective work. You find it easy to stay one step ahead of those around you. You shine with an inner light. The excitement that surrounds you motivates everyone else to have a more positive attitude.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Keep your schedule flexible and avoid long meetings. Your usual steady energy is likely to have peaks and valleys now. You could either start yawning uncontrollably or be incredibly antsy.
● Finances: Grand plans are all well and good, but to accomplish them you have to plod along on a day-to-day basis just like everyone else. Stick to your regular routine today -- in fact, embrace it. It's your safest bet for getting where you ultimately want to be.
● Love: Today you could use a romantic adventure, so put aside any boring evening activities, and get your pals together to storm your favorite hangout spot. Dress to the nines, and let your flirty side call the shots.
● General: The chickens are coming home to roost, so get out there and make sure that chicken coop is ready for guests. The sooner you deal with the past, the sooner you can get started on finding an opportunity in this situation. Avoid power struggles with someone in a position of importance later in the day. Your interests are best served when you keep smiling and make it look easy.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Those around you are extra receptive, so back-burner action steps while you offer your reassurances, feedback, and ideas. What you do now isn't nearly as important as how you communicate.
● Finances: If it was always fun to make a living, it wouldn't be called work. You can't focus exclusively on the parts you enjoy. If you are an idea person, then coming up with great ones doesn't mean a thing unless you do the grunt work that goes with it.
● Love: As you get to know someone new, be tolerant of their opinions no matter how wacky they strike you. Just because an idea doesn't mesh well with your preconceived ideals doesn't mean it's wrong.
● General: Sometimes things really are just as good as they look! Today you are surprised to find that the substance of an attractive person matches up to his or her image. You could fall in love easily, although why complicate a perfect friendship? The choice may not be entirely up to you. You are tempted to throw caution to the wind. Don't rush into a hasty decision -- let things develop naturally.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Cutting costs may not be pleasant, but it's necessary now. You want to make your budget, not negatively affect morale, get input from those involved so they're not caught off-guard.
● Finances: Spell out exactly how you want things done. Don't leave anything to chance. Even those who know you well can't read your mind. You don't have to fall back on the old saw, if you want something done right you have to do it yourself; all you have to do is be clear.
● Love: Things you find trivial, others may take seriously. Be careful what you mock, you could end up hurting someone's feelings. Know your audience well before you start wisecracking. No punch line is worth losing a friend.
● General: The more you strive to be number one, the less fun you seem to be having. Is this really how you want to be spending your time? Rethink your priorities and goals to make your life more enjoyable. Nobody's perfect, so why do you expect it of yourself? Call up old friends or family and do some heavy-duty relaxing today. It's the cure for what ails you.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Get your plan or proposal in order, and get it in front of the right people -- you'll get a good response now. You have to take the initiative in turning over a new leaf if you want a fresh start.
● Finances: It's not a good day to focus on the horizon line. Long-term plans just can't be made accurately. Focus on smaller issues instead. Even something simple, like cleaning up your check register or paying all your bills, is time better spent than thinking about your future.
● Love: Your first impulse today could be the wrong one. Avoid making any rash judgments or sudden decisions. Think about all the angles first, then act. You'll be glad you waited for the right moment.
● General: You begin to understand a vast, underlying pattern later in the day. It's even easier to excel when you understand why it's happening. Your abilities and desires come together in a perfect match. Your coworkers look on with a mixture of awe and envy. When you're on fire like this, no one needs to fan the flames of your success. This is the perfect time to get your ideas out of your head and into the right hands.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Don't get bogged down in details -- use your extra powers to suss out an issue. You may be extra sensitive when it comes to criticism and perceiving what's going on around you, but just remind yourself not to overreact.
● Finances: There's no shame in changing tack. When you can see that something just isn't working, then there's no point in throwing good money after bad. Reassess your strategy before you throw a fortune into the sinkhole.
● Love: Today you give off a special kind of radiance thanks to your positive attitude. You illuminate goodwill wherever you go. Shine on those who could use a boost of good cheer. A secret admirer is smiling at your splendor.
● General: Are you the hunter or the hunted today? Sometimes your position changes depending upon what you (or the other party) are looking for. It's a good thing you like this game (and are so good at it), but make sure you don't take it too seriously. That means no lashing out at folks who don't get the rules of how this situation works as quickly as you do. Work on winning allies right now.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Schedule a long lunch, or at least get off-site for an afternoon coffee break or a walk today. Some social time with a workgroup or a coworker who's becoming a friend makes the day much brighter.
● Finances: Your biggest achievement might be sweeping the office with a corn broom, but that's still nothing to scoff at. Not every day can be one of reaching your big goals. Staying organized is an important part of getting ahead, and you shouldn't take it too lightly.
● Love: Lately, you've been feeling like the underdog, and not in a good everyone-roots-for-you kind of way. Don't get too frustrated with your low-rung status. Everything has its ebb and flow, even your popularity.
● General: Get ready to be a part of the action today. You enter a period of leadership where all eyes will be on you. You depend on others for affirmation even as they look to you for guidance. The sooner you learn to stand on your own two feet, the better. Second-guessing yourself has no place in this new role. Delegate as many of the details as possible so that you can concentrate on your vision.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: The maintenance of relationships is mission critical now -- innovation's not as important as follow through. Check in with important contacts, and ask the higher-ups what you can do to help with ongoing projects.
● Finances: Being a good listener means keeping your ears open for what is left unsaid. Those unspoken words are leading you to the buried treasure while the spoken ones are leading you down the garden path. Being perceptive is a must.
● Love: Today others look to you for answers. Take their queries for assistance seriously. Your advice not only comes in handy but could end up saving the day. A secret admirer will appreciate your enthusiasm to help.
● General: Daydreaming may serve you very well right now. Imagining a better situation is the first step toward making concrete improvements, so let your mind wander where it will. Plan out the steps in your head before committing them to paper. If the task proves to be too much for one person to handle alone, find allies to help you enact your changes. Be careful not to stay with the process you set in motion -- your leadership is needed every step of the way.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Instead of overthinking a workplace issue, let your intuition do the dirty work. Your gut can provide solutions that your head is unable to process, particularly if it's an interpersonal matter.
● Finances: Research is mandatory, but doing it in a planned, well-thought-out way is key. Going about it willy-nilly won't get you the information you need. Do it right, though, and you'll unearth some surprising and profitable secrets.
● Love: Today you could end up stressed out. Slow down and take it easy to avoid any possible emotional or mental train wrecks. Take the calm approach when dealing with difficult people.
● General: Spend some time in a natural environment today. Take a long walk in the park or visit a nature conservatory. Even sitting in your own backyard is better than staring at the television or computer screen. Your interior landscape is a pretty healthy place, but you can always freshen it up with outside influences. Be sure to leave the place as clean as it was when you arrived. Travel may be in the cards for this evening. Make sure you pack appropriately.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You're working in the realm of the ideal, envisioning the best possible strategy and model. Just be sure to partner with those who are responsible for the nitty-gritty -- like the timeline and bottom line.
● Finances: Someone is driving you crazy, and it's an important someone. Ask yourself some brutally honest questions. Is it really them, or would you chafe under the authority of any boss? You already know the answer; now do something with it.
● Love: Humor goes all long way today. Cut the tension in a room with a witty commentary on a current event. Share a funny story with a friend desperately needs a good laugh.
● General: Old challenges turn into new obstacles today. Business issues rise to the surface as you are faced with a seemingly insurmountable hurdle. Be prepared for any contingency when asking for assistance -- you may not get much help from the people who could give it easily, so have a back-up lined up just in case. Try not to blame someone for your issues -- he or she may be having problems of which you know nothing. Get plenty of sleep tonight in preparation for tomorrow's activities.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Strive to handle things as they come up rather than allow them to build up to an explosion. Watch for emerging issues in workplace relationships now -- particularly if you have a partner.
● Finances: You can't do everything yourself. Even research should be a team effort. Someone a long way off can do more than you can right here at home, no matter what material you have access to. Reach out.
● Love: It's not an easy day to express what you're feeling. Word might seem inadequate. Instead of grasping for the right sentence, let your actions speak for you. Someone you want to connect with will get the message.
● General: Sometimes there's nothing you can do about a situation. Get over what you can't change, or your fixation about it will eat you alive. While it isn't like you to give up, you also know when you can't win. This is one those times. Later in the day, an unreliable associate may yet surprise you with a dependable response. Be sure to write it down or no one else will believe you. Tonight, your romantic impulses could trap you in a tight spot -- use the secret exit to escape if necessary.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You may think that a certain coworker's plan is suboptimal, but it's important to exercise some tact when expressing this. Present a workable alternative that incorporates an element of theirs.
● Finances: Your ideas could be more grounded in reality than they are, but they're not half bad as is. There is a lot you can do to get a grip on the practical side of making them fly. Focus on that today.
● Love: Make your control-freak side go on vacation, and give in to your impulses. Throw caution to the wind and have fun without worry about what people may say. Today is all about what you want not what you should be doing.
● General: Don't forget that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Yielding to temptation today might lead to a consequence that could have been easily avoided. Be especially conscious about what you eat and drink. Your health has the potential to improve greatly if you are willing to modify your diet. You may find yourself getting tired of those same old tricks your imagination keeps playing. The time has come for everyone to lay all those wild cards on the table.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Make sure your priorities are balanced between work and play. Sure, your job's important, but the stars are sending you some different types of windows of opportunity now -- in the romantic and social spheres.
● Finances: Your analytical side is more prominent than your compassionate side, but even being strictly analytical, you can see why giving to others is a beneficial thing for you to do. You have to have all the facts before signing the check, though, so start digging into them.
● Love: Your friends' infighting is enough to drive you crazy. But don't get carried away in their dramas. Offer yourself up as an objective observer, but refrain from becoming the judge or jury in any disputes.
