● General: There's a certain enlightening combination of facts, fiction and circumstance that only you are privy to. That means you'll be in a power position, so use it wisely. Keep your cards close to your chest and don't spill too much information. Others may try to pry some secrets out of you, but the more you share, the weaker your position becomes. Take on as big of a leadership position as you possibly can. You may regret taking a backseat this time.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You'll come across hidden clauses and vague contractual terms that will come back to haunt you if you haven't done your homework, so try not to sign anything binding today. Also, lie low and don't take on any new work, if it's at all possible.
● Finances: It's hard to stay motivated when you have no way of knowing if your hard work will ever pay off. If you look closely, you can see little signs of success all around you. Look for new shoots, not fully formed blossoms.
● Love: The stars say the morning's not exactly brimful of energy for you. However, by later in the day you might be rather revved up -- and looking rather hot. Kick that glow into gear with a walk or some other exercise.
● General: Despite some ill-executed work or downright sloppy behavior of a well-meaning person, you will have a day full of a new level of warmth for the people in your life. Suddenly, you can see the true motivation behind what they're doing and that there is a bright love behind everything. Focus on the meaning behind the action. It seems one of your friends thinks more highly of you than you had been letting yourself believe. No one is perfect, but they are perfect for you.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You'll soon see improved productivity if you keep the work flow consistent and moving forward. And try to find mutual interests and goals with everyone you work with, after all, commonalities are important in your career right now.
● Finances: You have a romantic side and a practical side, and today they merge. As long as you don't break the bank doing it, you can afford to indulge your luxurious, even decadent, desires. Enjoy.
● Love: Ideas are flowing now and if you've got somebody equally inspired to bounce 'em off, even better. A group of inspirational people might be the best kind of fun -- the more hearts and minds, the merrier.
● General: There's a lot of drama going on in your personal life, although luckily none of the negative energy is focused right on you at the moment. This emotional noise will likely continue for a few more days, so you should figure out if you want to deal with it or simply ignore it. Keep in mind that no matter which option you choose, the future holds a lot more potential conflict if certain things aren't taken care of. Honesty is going to be your best ally.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: When it rains, it pours -- and it's really coming down right now. Suddenly, too many projects are requiring your attention. Take greater care than usual in picking your way through the maze of tasks and to-dos and you'll stay on track with ease.
● Finances: You have to face an obstacle with all the patience you can muster. Even a much-needed correction can seem painfully slow in coming. Keep your hopes up and your mood light; it will help maintain your desire to persevere.
● Love: The morning's custom-made for sleeping in, lazing about and entertaining a daydream or two. By the afternoon and evening, feel free to make a move -- it's likely to go over splendidly.
● General: Your involvement in a friend's project could tip the scales of success, so chip in. A friend may have a project that could be lots of fun -- pitch in and give them some of your prime time. Your involvement guarantees some positive energy, and they understand that. Their gratitude will strengthen your friendship too. Family members who've been in your thoughts are in a good state of mind, so you can stop your worrying, but they'd love to get a call from you anyway.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Your mind is better suited to strategic thinking right now, so think big -- really big. It's a great time to get the green light on major projects or a huge promotion. Don't worry too much about line-items or individual components of projects, though.
● Finances: Necessity is indeed the mother of invention. You're coming up with some pretty crazy ideas but some of them just might work. You'll never know unless you try, though, so get down to brass tacks.
● Love: Even if you're not sleeping in this morning, you're liable to be daydreaming anyway. Later in the day, you might feel the need to hurry, but remember, you can't hurry matters of the heart.
● General: Words will have extra weight, so be wary of how you talk and who you talk to. You're entering into a more sensitive phase, where one slightly controversial comment could send you down a very unproductive emotional path. You can't stay out of the way all day, so be prepared for a few episodes of defensiveness. Try not to take negative words as personal attacks. Learning to accept constructive criticism means you have to use what you're hearing to improve your situation.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Check in with close colleagues if you're unsure how to proceed: listen to your gut when you're faced with big decisions today. For maximum results and minimal error, try to follow instructions as closely as possible.
● Finances: There is more than one way to take care of business today, but you still need to keep the concept of right or wrong front and center. It simply means you have many right ways at your disposal. Pick and choose carefully.
● Love: Love and money aren't mixing well at the moment, so take extra care with interactions involving friends and finances -- and potential more-than-friends and finances, too. How about finding something both free and fun?
● General: Guess who your number one fan will always be? You! It's time to refocus all your positive energy back toward yourself -- you've been giving away much too much to other people lately. Good friends and family members will always be on hand to make you smile, but you are the only one who can completely understand the battles you've been in and the lessons you've learned. Cut yourself some slack -- and give yourself a great big pat on the back.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Workplace morale is sort of flagging right now. Unfortunately, you can't do much to inspire the troops -- until tomorrow. For now, you'll be the only person in the workplace able to keep up the pace of productivity needed to make a dent. Keep on truckin'.
● Finances: You want nothing to do with the same old, same old. If it doesn't have a certain foreign flare, you have no interest. Unfortunately, you have to put up with some of the tried and true today. Sprinkle in the novelty items where you can.
● Love: This morning's custom-made for sleeping in -- get a little R and R. By this afternoon, you'll be raring to tackle your to-do list -- and able to make amazing progress. Put something romance-related on it!
● General: Every obstacle you run into isn't necessarily bad news. Right now you could start running into road blocks left and right, so don't get frustrated. Each limit is there for a reason, and you need to understand why it could be there. You may have to struggle more than usual in your daily routine, and you could have an especially hard time helping the people you want to help. They aren't disappointed in you, so don't worry about letting anyone down.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: It's a bad time to take on more work; you need to stick with what you've got for now and do it well. So when the powers that be start distributing new assignments, hide out until the storm passes. And if that doesn't work, be honest with your supervisor.
● Finances: Your income is on your mind today, like most days. It's hard to feel at ease with all the stewing you have to do over money. But try hard not to let it put yet another wrinkle in yet another day. Know you can -- and will -- jump over your financial hurdles.
● Love: Err on the side of putting others first, at least a little bit. Help a friend with a project, provide a listening ear, do a small kindness for a stranger. It might just be the positive push your love karma needs.
● General: There are two types of people in the world: those who ask for directions and those who get lost. Remember that when you're navigating through some unfamiliar waters. The maps or guidance you've been given won't be much help, so you need to reach out to others and share your confusion. More experienced folks can show you where you need to be -- and how to get there. And later down the line, you'll be eager to do the same for someone else.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: If you can visualize where you want to be, now is the time to take the next step to get there. Your most deeply felt desires for success are closer to coming true, so stay on this wave of progress and ride it until it breaks.
● Finances: You feel like you're wrestling with a mythological being instead of with your budget. That's because, at the end of the day, money is merely an abstract human concept after all. Don't give it more meaning or power than it deserves.
● Love: The emphasis is shifting from the creative to the analytical about now, but during the transition time today you've got both right brain and left brain going strong. Get your heart involved and see what happens!
● General: Suddenly you're starting to feel things for someone that you didn't anticipate! Before you freak out or start to feel guilty, think about the possible origins for this change of heart. You'll soon see that your emotions are heightened by a benevolent sense of obligation or guilt. Give this new feeling a few days to simmer, and most likely it will fade away. It's all a reminder that, right now, you're under the control of your heart much more than your head.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Life will just sort of happen to you today without your interference, which could be a bad thing. If you're not aware of your actions, you might miss something important. Make sure whatever you are doing, you're doing it consciously.
● Finances: The details may bore you, but you'll be forced to face them today. Like it or not, the big picture means nothing without them. It's not all dull, though -- they're where the devil is, or haven't you heard?
● Love: Sleep in if at all possible -- you're likely to be a little out-of-it this morning. By this afternoon, however, some decidedly more tuned-in energy comes your way, along with the chance for romance!
● General: You have confidence in your ideas and you know exactly what you're doing -- that is all you need for success. So why are you getting hung up on what other people think? It's likely that your insecurity button is getting pushed by the usual suspects. Opinions are good, but everyone has one -- and they aren't all valid. Consider the possibility that jealousy could be clouding someone's judgment. Stay open to compromise, because a fierce show of independence could send the wrong message.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Make sure you're reaching your audience (or whoever else needs to hear your message), no matter who they might be. Find new ways to speak your mind and explore other avenues of communication. You may have more impact in the nonverbal realm.
● Finances: You have so much to do you'll have to remind yourself to take a break. And do remind yourself, because all work and no play makes anyone more than dull. You need all the energy and good health you can manage to face the coming days, so be sure to factor that in.
● Love: The connections you make in the early part of the day might just be rather fruitful ones, so get out and greet the day, not to mention everyone you meet. Later, getting stuff in order at home is satisfying.
● General: Things that are way beyond your control might be bumming you out especially hard, but try not to get discouraged: There is always hope. Take a brighter, more peaceful approach and talk things out with the people around you who feel the same. Together, you can all get on a happier topic and turn even the sourest lemons into delicious, sunshiny lemonade. There's an inspiring force deep inside of you, and it can only be revealed through a trial.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Don't worry so much about what others are up to today. Though lots of people need your time and attention, your own needs must be a priority. You should definitely come first today, and don't feel bad about it either.
● Finances: You feel as if your entire life is stuck in a chunk of amber. It may look beautiful but it sure feels old and outdated. New things cost money, though, so you'll just have to be content with what you have for the time being. Sigh.
● Love: Whatever it is you're trying to get done this morning, you're liable to find your attention wandering. Give it some free time and see where it goes -- by later in the day, that could be some amazing places.
● General: Rather than turn up the heat, let things cool off a bit. Put your plans on the back burner and keep them simmering, because all your energy is needed elsewhere. Obstacles will be popping up here and there, but if you're paying attention, you can flick them away like annoying gnats. Overall it will be an entertaining day full of many victories and a renewed sense of confidence. If you're looking for a bigger challenge, make your move on a hidden crush.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You'll have a big opportunity to advance your own agenda without costing anyone else a thing, so take it and run. Do right by yourself, just this once and step out of the way -- let the universe take over and work things out for you.
● Finances: Being of a mercurial nature has its advantages. Be sure to make the most of the ups, though, because the downs will be so deep they'll shock even you. The rollercoaster ride can be a thing of beauty as well as a moneymaking machine if you handle it just right.
● Love: A breakfast or brunch date goes great -- you're looking fantastic (even if you've got bed-head!) and feeling even better if the stars have their way. Tonight: Plan to nest, solo or with a friend.
