● General: Will you feel like chatting today? You bet you will -- and it's a given that the topic of your choice will be love or romance. In fact, expect one of your new admirers to bridge the gap boldly between friend and lover during what starts out as a casual chat. If you're interested, get busy. This opportunity won't last forever. Fortunately, at the speed you move, this won't be a problem.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Focus on the tasks in front of you, especially if your number-one priority is relaxation. Communication is unclear at best, so try not to rely on messages received from people you don't know and understand deeply.
● Finances: An ounce of creativity nets you a pound of fun. And simply enjoying what you do is enough to tip the scales in your favor. Not only will you feel like a kid again, but the profits finally make an appearance. Let your artistic side run free.
● Love: The stars say: Go bold! Now is not the time for shrinking violets. If you've been waiting for the right opportunity to tell someone how you feel, wait no longer. No hinting either; just come on out and say it. The direct approach will yield the best result for you now.
● General: Still longing for a few hours of time alone with your sweetheart, without the intrusion of a phone or computer? Well, then, take it. Turn off anything that beeps, rings or buzzes, and have an honest-to-goodness conversation. Give yourselves the gift of uninterrupted privacy tonight.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Your eye for detail is a little fuzzier now that you can see the big picture, so you'll need to slow down. Don't be ashamed to take extra time going over the fine print -- and if you're in doubt about the terms, ask and clarify.
● Finances: You may win a long-fought power struggle but it's nothing to be proud of. You should never have dug in your heels in the first place, not to mention stubbornly refusing to budge for so long. Let it be a lesson learned so the experience doesn't completely go to waste.
● Love: Take some time today to reflect on all that you have achieved -- you have a lot to be proud of! Next time you meet someone and you're feeling a little nervous, recall these thoughts for an instant boost of confidence. Remember that anyone would be lucky to meet the amazing You!
● General: You're ready for a whole new level of intimacy with your current partner. Don't cut corners. Say it all. Every word. The worst that can happen is that you'll make it absolutely painful for the two of you to be later on. But then, there's always tomorrow night -- and the chance to make up for all that lost time.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: The energy you draw from days like today will give you plenty of stamina to use when you face long slogs later on. Today will be stimulating, but don't expect to make huge inroads on work-related projects.
● Finances: You won't accomplish anything today if you don't surround yourself with people who see things the way you do. No one will take you seriously based on your ideas alone; they must already agree with your worldview. Don't waste time on anyone not like-minded.
● Love: Why just dream about something, when you can actually do it? It's time to put some of your big ideas into action, and them a reality! Make a list of the steps you need to take, then get going. The sooner you get started, the sooner you'll be seeing results.
● General: The urge to take off for some serious shopping will be tough to resist -- and why should you? Shopping is perfectly justified now. Just try not to go over your limit -- not too far, anyway. The seasons are changing and your wardrobe needs a serious update. If you can afford it, a few quality staples is just what your look needs.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Try coming out of your shell today and volunteering your opinions in conversations with strangers and loved ones alike. Standing by your convictions is important, but if no one knows what those convictions are, you aren't any better off.
● Finances: Don't compare yourself to a fantasy life; you're bound to make yourself feel like a failure. In your daydreams things may be getting only bigger and better, but real life has another storyline. Find the way it's gone up, if only slightly, and focus on that.
● Love: Something shiny and expensive catches your eye today. If you can afford it without sacrificing your rent, go on and splurge! If wearing it makes you feel more confident and attractive, you are sure to turn a few heads your way. It all adds up to a great little indulgence that is worth every penny.
● General: It's all about you today -- and your lover will no doubt prove it to you from the moment you open your eyes. Since you've been planning an equally wonderful surprise for them, of course, there's no reason to feel guilty about being so spoiled. Besides, who in their right mind wouldn't make a fuss over you?
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: If you're invited to hang with a coworker today, accept the invitation ASAP. Socializing with peers, even during off hours, is the best way to open currents of conversation and explore ideas at work next week.
● Finances: Money brings confidence. Going over your past financial accomplishments will help remind you of exactly what you're capable of. You may feel down for the count but that's only because you need a boost up, and you're just the right one to do it.
● Love: Your creativity level is set to high right now, making this a perfect time to respond to some online ads. Crafting clever responses will help make them -- and you! -- stand out from the masses. Pick a few of the most promising ads, and then sit down and compose your masterpieces.
● General: That secret you've been lugging around? You just can't keep quiet about it, not for one more second. If it's going to be a private surprise, though, be discreet, and don't tell anyone anything. Disclosing your secret, even to your best friend, could result in a leak of vast proportions -- you don't have to wait much longer now.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Tact isn't your strong suit, so you have to rely on keeping the calculations watertight. Be very precise when you're pushed into delicate conversations today. No one will be able to challenge you on the facts.
● Finances: You can't be too flexible today. Spending money fast and furious is one way to handle things, but so is being as frugal as possible. You are an ace at both approaches, so let yourself bend in the direction the wind blows you.
● Love: Everyone wants to go for the obvious winner, but there's a lot to be said in favor of the underdog. Don't overlook that shy but sweet person you see everyday. What they lack in flash, they may more than make up for in other ways. Act fast, before someone else realizes what a catch they are!
● General: A friend has recently come to you with a super offer, and you're tempted to take it. Unfortunately, they're not waiting for an answer, and you've got more important things to attend to. They want to introduce you to a whole new peer group -- to some people they're sure you'll fit in with just perfectly. If you can talk them into waiting just two days, it could be a blessing.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Find a willing ear and pour out your thoughts and feelings. You're bursting with news about your social life, your plans for the future, and your passion for the work you're doing. Don't hide under a rock today.
● Finances: You might feel like being alone. In fact, you might feel like crawling under a rock and staying there for the day. But what you really need is to be around people who care about you. Let someone else pick up your tab; the friendly gesture alone will be soothing.
● Love: Your ego gets a boost today when someone you look up to comes to you for love advice. Listen to what they tell you, then speak from your heart. You may be surprised at how much insight you have to offer! Your opinions and experiences are really valued by others.
● General: If anyone is notoriously not fond of attention, it's you. In fact, you tend to avoid anything that even remotely resembles the spotlight. At the moment, that may be tough to do, however, since someone who loves you may be planning a huge surprise. Oh, well. Relax. You may end up liking it.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You may wish you were in a higher-stakes game. It's a challenge to stay motivated today, especially when you're working on such mundane chores. Just relax -- you deserve a break already.
● Finances: Facing financial facts is a big challenge, but don't let yourself off the hook just because it's hard. Besides, being stressed is nothing new to you. Remind yourself: You are your own boss.
● Love: After a super busy time, use the next days to unwind. Your latest crush picks up on your mood, and suggests dinner at quiet restaurant. Low lighting and low voices not only help melt your stress, they also set the tone for romance. Is it possible that is what your crush had in mind all along?
● General: You were wondering when someone new and interesting might cross your path -- especially if you're single. Alas, the universe has seen fit to arrange an encounter for you: a surprising, coincidental encounter. Listen closely, no matter where you are, for one of those accents you so dearly love -- the kind that lets you know someone is not from your neck of the woods. Then be brave and introduce yourself.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You may be fretting about the outcome of a presentation or project next week, but its outcome doesn't depend on the whims of others. Everything -- from how you prepare to how you deliver -- is up to you and you alone. Get ready while you have a little downtime.
● Finances: You will settle for nothing less than excellence. It's what you require of yourself, so why should you accept mediocrity from others? When it comes to making money, nothing but the very best will do.
● Love: Today finds you dreaming of faraway places. Does your romantic future involve someone from overseas? It may be time to dust off your passport and pack your bags for an adventure.
● General: Calm, cool and calculated -- that's you, right? Well, that may be what you're used to being referred to as, but those may not be the adjectives used to describe you today. In fact, you may end up being called fiery, spontaneous and startling. Why hold back? Just go for it and let everyone see what you're all about.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Whatever can be expressed in the least number of words, steps or terms is appealing. You'll gravitate toward simple and straightforward tasks because you prize efficiency, whether it's at the office or in your backyard.
● Finances: It's not an easy day, if you judge by your business dealings alone. But if you take a wider view, you'll see that you are actually making progress in all the other ways that count. Don't let money worries make you myopic.
● Love: Work may be a bit stressful today, with people making unreasonable demands of you. Unwind at home with takeout for dinner, and then spend some time flirting online. Your day will end on a much happier note!
● General: This could be quite the romantic day for you. Oh, and then there's the fact that the heavens have arranged a full buffet of sweet, tender energies to assist you in creating not just perfect ambiance, but also the right words to express your emotions. So! Ready to let go and be totally emotional? Ready or not, here comes your chance.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Your buoyant attitude will make you seem approachable; but save your biggest smiles for those who extend a helping hand. Nothing can weigh down your mood today, not even those arduous chores awaiting your attention at home.
● Finances: Life is full of contradictions today. You'd be hard-pressed to find any kind of linear path it is taking. The ups and downs of your finances are but one example. Make sure you wear your seat belt, because it is a wild ride.
● Love: Now is a great time for trying out new things. Start by experimenting with your online ad. Choose new photos and change some of the text and see what kind of response you get.
● General: All that hard work you've been doing lately hasn't gone unnoticed in the eyes of the powers that be. You could be due for a raise, promotion or bonus -- so even if you have plans immediately afterward, dress in your best businesslike outfit for work today. You're about to have your 15 minutes, and you know you've earned it. Feel free to strut your stuff. And don't forget to celebrate.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: What was once a clear path in your career has become tangled and murky. Spend some time today pruning back the leaves. Perhaps you've forgotten a goal or missed a step along the way. It's the perfect day to get back on track.
● Finances: It's hard to mind your own business but getting involved in other people's dramas is a sure-fire way to waste your energy. Energy is money, in case you've forgotten that little secret. Conserve.
● Love: Resist the temptation to getting everything all worked out in advance. When you meet someone who captures your imagination, just dive right in and go for it! You can figure out the details later.
