● General: Finishing up all your errands isn't that important today -- starting new projects is. So put off picking up your dry cleaning, getting more kitty litter or stopping to get your oil changes. These things can wait. But when an opportunity or invitation lands right in your lap, you have to take it! Don't let the day-to-day routine make you forget that life is an adventure. Go down an unexplored path today.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Your energy is commendable, but while you're busy blazing trails and making a name for yourself, make sure you're not neglecting what's most important: your family, friends, and the people who love you.
● Finances: Small things take more effort to tackle than large ones, because they're not as interesting to you. They have to be done, though, even if they bore you to tears. Treat them as important. Take your time and give them the professionalism and attention they deserve.
● Love: Whoa, there -- you're ready to rush into something, whether it's a relationship or a snap judgment. The key now is to slow down and get more information -- including the clues from your own heart.
● General: It looks like someone who has been letting themselves be treated a bit too much like a doormat is going to start standing up for themselves today! You need to make sure you're there on the sidelines, cheering them on! This is a scary thing for them, and they can use some of your patented support to help them stand on their own two (wobbly) legs right now. Send along an inspirational email they can reference the next time they need a boost of self confidence.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: People are on edge, especially supervisors, so be wary. You may wince at the thought of mincing words, but this is one day to bite your tongue and take a tactful approach. You'll appreciate your restraint when everyone around you is falling like flies.
● Finances: Arrogance feels like your birthright today, but even so, don't let yourself strut around. It only brings down your image in the eyes of others. You know you won an important deal and that's what really counts, so exercise some diplomacy.
● Love: It's a day -- and night! -- custom-made for romance and you. Wear your favorite shirt and grab a few favorite people -- and get yourself to an interesting event instead of the same-old, same-old.
● General: Family problems are fading now, as the people you're related to are realizing you are your own person. This elevated level of respect is starting to gain momentum, and it's seeping into other areas of your life. Expect even your most judgmental friend to take a live-and-let-live attitude about what you choose to do in life. This is a new period of harmony, so enjoy it. It doesn't come around as often as you would like it to.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Everyone is in awe of your lightning-fast mind, and you're full of great ideas today. Still, you may want to slow down and finish the last project before leaping ahead to the next one -- or at least designate a trusted colleague to take the wheel.
● Finances: You've tried everything. Why you see no improvement is almost beyond your comprehension, and that's the key to understanding what is going on. Just because you can't see or grasp any movement doesn't mean it's not happening under the surface. Be patient. Things are changing for the better.
● Love: Don't rely on ESP when it comes to communicating in the romantic realm right now. They really can't read your mind -- nor can you read theirs. Ask a specific question or tell 'em what you're after.
● General: Details, details, details! Facts and figures are swarming all over you today, and they could create quite a buzz in your brain. Save yourself some stress by getting some advice from the voice of experience. Admit defeat when it's appropriate, and don't suffer a bad outcome just because you are too embarrassed to ask for help. You can turn a day of frustration and shame into a day of enlightenment and learning if you just swallow your pride.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: See if you can get assigned to a new location or just take a business trip today. Maybe you don't need a whole new position; maybe what you really need is just a change of scenery.
● Finances: You can be analytical about a situation but it won't help you figure it out. The only thing that will is open communication. Listening is more important than talking in this case; there are a lot of small details to be learned from important sources.
● Love: Past, present and future are coming together in a most interesting way when it comes to the realm of romance. Use that good memory of yours, as well as your ability to envision the future.
● General: Saving money always sounds like a good idea, but it is seldom any fun. If you are feeling a pinch in your wallet, today you will be able to find the creativity and energy you need to start making little alterations that will make a big difference in your bank account. Join in with friends and pool your money for an upcoming social event. Not only are two heads better than one, two cash flows are too! Group outings will help you have a lot of fun without spending too much money.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Your social skills are sharp and you're sure to make a positive impression without breaking a sweat. It's a great day to work your contact list and try to score an interview with a potential client or employer.
● Finances: No one can call you impulsive; you review your budget and review it again before making any purchases. But there is something else that needs your review and you are overlooking it. Your overall strategy needs to be dusted off and given the once-over today.
● Love: Hmm -- suddenly you're looking at a certain romantic situation with a businesslike eye. What are you putting into it versus what you're getting out of it? Is it all adding up? Get a friend to help with your accounting.
● General: You have worked hard to get where you are, and you should feel proud. Just don't be surprised if guilt creeps into your mind. Not everyone is as lucky as you are, and this fact is becoming clearer to you every day. It's time you got involved in a charity or volunteer effort. Doing something for others will make you feel socially useful. Even if you just drop off old clothes at your local shelter, helping others is important.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You're willing to look at all sides of a touchy issue before making a considered and judicious decision. Those skills will come in handy today when coworkers seek your skills at mediation.
● Finances: It's not the right time to start anything new. Even if things have been petering out for a while now, staying on course is your safest bet. Going off on a tangent will simply waste precious money that you can't afford to lose.
● Love: A little romantic notion you set in motion could begin to grow now, and what was puzzling you in your love life will start to make startling sense. It's all happening for a reason, so prepare to enjoy the ride.
● General: Every time you get rid of an old idea, assumption or unwanted item, you make room for a new influx of energy and growth. Today, you could use a big dose of freshness, so see what you can do to empty a few closets (emotional and bedroom alike). Whether you toss out a relationship, a grudge or an old sweater, you'll immediately feel a sense of freedom and relief. You've been released from hanging on to what you thought you needed. The truth is you already have everything you need.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You have all the contacts at your fingertips and others are clamoring to get a look at your plans. You're not about to hand over your hard work to the competition, are you? Not a chance!
● Finances: You're too overwhelmed by pesky details to even function. They need to be addressed, though, and the sooner the better. You don't have the luxury of putting them off for another day. Every day you let go by is money down the drain.
● Love: Your ability to listen is far sexier than others' long monologues. Show someone you're interested by asking a key question, followed up by another, then maybe gentle teasing, a laugh, eye contact....
● General: Your charm is going to be so effective today that doors won't just open a little bit so you can elbow your way in. No -- doors will fly open, revealing a great big sign that welcomes you to come on in! Getting comfortable in a new situation will take you nanoseconds, so it is a perfect day for a big-time job interview or a trip to an unfamiliar place. Your career could take a giant leap forward if you just relax and let your inner brilliance shine.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: See if you can see the bright side of everyone. After all, everyone has positive attributes. You'll get a lot more out of your work if you criticize less and compliment more -- and it may take some discipline on your part.
● Finances: People around you are doing some kind of planning, and your paranoid side is getting the better of you. Do yourself and everyone around you a favor: Don't let it. If you imagine a secret, tell yourself it must be a surprise party -- for you.
● Love: It's the kind of day when a wink gets you way further than a confession of undying infatuation. Say it with body language or as few words as possible -- humor and a little mystery are your best romantic friends.
● General: Today, any secrets you learn are to be kept, not shared! You will be the recipient of a lot of privileged information from a few very influential people. This sudden trust people are putting in you could be a sort of test, and the stakes are high. Do not betray them or disappoint their high expectations by letting some confidential stuff leak out. You have to be vigilant about it, because you'll be involved in several very fun conversations, and it could be easy to slip up!
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Don't neglect your personal life just to get ahead in the dog-eat-dog professional world. If you find a sense of balance, you can have it all. You know what they say about all work and no play.
● Finances: It goes without saying you're worth more than you're getting, but don't express that just now. Take your cues from those around you, if not the world around you. Stuff the impulse to ask for a raise, even if it drives you crazy.
● Love: The temptation to overlook what seems like a minor shortcoming may be strong, but is this something that might ultimately be a deal-breaker? At least keep it in mind as you go forward.
● General: Controversy will be a helpful shield for you today. It will create a nice loud, distracting noise that will keep everyone busy -- and out of your hair! Today is the perfect day to put your new ideas to work, so you will need all the elbow room and autonomy you can muster. Get in any research, planning, or organizing you need to do as early in the day as possible. By late afternoon, people could be hovering around you again, looking for answers only you can give.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You've done a lot of favors lately, so don't feel bad about asking for a little help of your own. You may need a partner to help you finish a project on deadline -- they'll be more than happy to lend you a hand.
● Finances: You're anxious to get things off the ground, but if you hurry through the important details, you'll end up missing something important. You're grounded one way or the other; it might be for a good reason. Take a deep breath and do your research.
● Love: Now you're the social mastermind! Grab a friend or two and plan a whirlwind of activity that'll put you in contact with all sorts of different people -- and talk to and laugh with as many of them as possible.
● General: Be careful about how you approach any business deals today, and try not to let your emotions get the better of you. Someone could try to push your buttons -- don't let them. They're bringing up issues to get a rise out of you, not to make any real or valuable points. A well-phrased comment made at the right time will be more effective than any threats they could ever make. Respect other people's arguments, and take note of how each individual behaves in a pinch.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You're more than capable of making a big decision, so don't second-guess yourself. Being a leader means knowing when to take a risk and when to hold back. If you need some advice before you move forward, ask someone who's been there before.
● Finances: You tend to trust others, even in business, but you may learn a lesson the hard way. Be extra cautious of every business transaction today. The motivations of others are hidden just beneath the surface.
● Love: Sure, love's mysterious and all that, but in order to enjoy having your head in the stars, you've got to have both feet on the ground. Get grounded now about who you are and what you truly want.
● General: Some of the people around you are moving into exciting changes, and their happiness is contagious. Volunteer to help them with any finishing touches and get in on the good karma they're enjoying. You are as happy for them as you would be for yourself in this situation, and your generous spirit is helping them enjoy their success. Not everyone can be this big-hearted, and they appreciate your support. This is a growth phase for your relationships.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Share your opinions, but don't inflict them on your colleagues. Though you're a person of strong opinions, remember that others around you have stakes in this game too. Be respectful of others' boundaries and they'll return the favor.
● Finances: When someone urges you to just dive right in without knowing all the facts, you can rest assured they have nefarious motives. Resist the impulse to do what they say. Take your time and find out all the facts before doing anything.
● Love: Wouldn't it be better to just do it rather than look back later and wish that you had? You only live -- and love -- once. So instead of biding your time and gathering more info, consider being bold.
