● General: A new person in your life is sparking some questions in your own mind -- where are you going -- how soon do you need to get there? Answers won't come easy, and they shouldn't. If they do, you're probably just telling yourself what society expects of you. So just let these questions simmer for a while and don't put too much pressure on finding an answer right now. Sooner or later you will come to some conclusions that will give you a firm foundation and a plan of attack.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: A little confidence will go a long way toward getting you to the next destination in your career. Your drive for success may feel like it's hit a rough patch, but if you keep your forward momentum you'll pull through fine.
● Finances: Don't make much of how you feel. Watch for tell-tale signs of burnout and frustration. It has more to do with the day of the week than it does the tasks you're dealing with. Just keep pushing yourself over that hump.
● Love: So, you like this person, but what's their story? Use your favorite search engine to check them out -- subtly of course. Better to know whether this person before it goes any further... unless of course, you are only trying to have fun!
● General: Plans are shifting out of place today -- but don't waste time trying to figure out why. Instead, you should direct your energy toward formulating the most effective reaction to the new situation. Simply put, you can't afford to have a 'whatever' attitude about any surprises throughout the day. If something is bothersome or frustrating, you can take charge, get rid of it and put things back on track.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Your calm, earthy demeanor will settle clients or colleagues down even more than your well-chosen words. That's why you're perfectly suited to deal with customer service issues over the next week or so.
● Finances: Once you start opening up, you'll find that people around you all share the same basic goals. Your business plans may be unique but your motivations and desires are all quite similar. Enjoy the disclosure.
● Love: The temptation to contact an old flame is almost overwhelming but consider the consequences. Perhaps this person's in a new relationship. Would an email from you create problems or arouse jealousy? Would you want it if the tables were turned?
● General: When you aim at your target today, switch off your emotions. Doubt, fear -- even confidence -- must get pushed aside or else you may miss your mark. Approach everything with an analytical eye and there will be no doubts you can't explain away. Nothing in life is 100 percent certain, but if you put your brain to work now, you can get things close enough. Passion isn't going to be as powerful as intellect, at least not for a while.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Watch carefully and react appropriately. No amount of preparation can help you deal with the day's events, but your innate flexibility will make all the difference between success and failure.
● Finances: Nothing is clear but your desire to change things. Even your daydreams about that very change are blurry. Start with what you know, that you simply can't go on the way things are. It's a beginning.
● Love: When a wave of nostalgia crashes over you today, you'll wish everything would just go back to normal -- whatever that is. But when the mood wears off, ask yourself, were you really better off? Be realistic -- probably not.
● General: The rat race is getting especially rough right now, and not for the right reasons. If you're getting overwhelmed by the crowds, step out -- you won't miss out on any big opportunities, despite what others may say. Pressures are driving you out of a social situation too, and that is a strong indicator that time on your own will give your batteries the recharge they need. No one will question your motivation on any decisions you make, so put yourself first this time.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Push yourself to move forward. Business will be either hot or cold for you over the next week or so, but not lukewarm. In either case, remember that it is just a phase -- plan for the short term accordingly.
● Finances: Unraveling a philosophical problem is a good way to spend the day, but not a profitable one. You have both bills to pay and thoughts to think. See if you can manage two things at once.
● Love: Don't be surprised if a clash of personalities with the opposite sex creates sparks. The confrontation will either smolder to ash or erupt in a fiery inferno. If it's the latter, ask this person out after it cools down. Could be smoking!
● General: Everywhere you go will be crowded and active today, so get ready for some sensory overload. To some extent, you'll get a rush from the crowds. But when you need a break, you'll really need a break -- so pay attention to your feelings as the day progresses. All the activity may challenge your ability to concentrate on a developing issue with a friend. Put off making your next move until things settle and you can get some quiet time to figure out exactly what you want.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: If you can link your wants and desires with those of your teammates, you'll win their hearts and minds. So find a balance between your enthusiasm for the latest project and your peers' desires to hear about the big picture.
● Finances: It's a good day to put your wallet in a safe place and leave it there. An entire day without spending or collecting a penny is a good cleanser for your soul. Besides, it helps you get a grip on your bottom line.
● Love: It's a great night for fun, so why not plan a coed single's bash? Invite your unattached pals over for a party and have it outside -- nothing's more romantic than a balmy summer evening. Besides, someone interesting might catch your eye.
● General: Everyone is taking their own journey through life, and that's liberating -- but it can also be isolating, because no one else can truly understand what you are experiencing. Take this fact to heart when those 'in the know' offer you unsolicited advice today. They have your best interest at heart, but in the end their thoughts are based on their own goals -- not yours. Stick to what you feel. This is no time to start navigating by someone else's maps -- you could get lost.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You should see positive results wherever you've left your mark, and word will definitely reach the right people. The extra hours and energy you've been putting in lately are really starting to pay off -- finally!
● Finances: You just can't get anything done today, and not for lack of trying. You're too confused to wrap things up in any meaningful way. There's no shame in putting things aside until you have a chance to clear your head.
● Love: Don't be afraid to take a romantic risk today. If it's going to blow up, it'll implode with force. But, if you manage to pull it off, expect something wonderful to happen. You can't know until you go for it.
● General: If social juggling were an Olympic sport, you'd snag the gold for sure. Finalize tentative plans with a friend today. This marathon-length game of phone tag needs to come to an end. Take out your calendar and book a date today, because tomorrow you'll be grateful for the excuse to say no. Luckily, everyone else is busy too, and that will make tying up these details a lot more painless. Joy and laughter are coming your way -- bring other friends into the mix to make the most of it.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Try to shake off anything that isn't directly related to the tasks immediately in front of you. Your personal life is catching up with you and possibly slowing you down more than you'd like.
● Finances: You thrive on a daily routine, so when it's knocked on its head you're more than a little flustered. Make the most of it, because you'll stumble upon a much more efficient way to get the job done if you keep your eyes open.
● Love: Don't pass up an offer to join your pal on a double date. Although past experience tells you to avoid it like the plague, give this one a chance. Even if the romance falls short, you'll meet someone new and interesting.
● General: Memories of an awkward moment still hang in the air -- don't you think it's time one of you reached out and made an effort to reconnect? Make the first move -- you'll feel good and will gain extra credit for doing so. It may take a while to get the face-to-face time you need with that special someone, but keep trying. They are not blowing you off! Persistence will pay off in a big way -- you'll have them all to yourself for quite a long, cozy time.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: If you start that project early next week, you'll find it much easier to build momentum. After all, planning should be just about finished by now, and it's definitely time to ease into implementation.
● Finances: Making money is both an art and a science, and you have enough creativity and intellect to make it work. You just can't seem to bring the two together. Don't give up because you'll receive some divine inspiration just in the nick of time.
● Love: Pick a potential date and share a crazy thought or impulse with them. Then, savor the reaction. If they squirm and grimace, take your business elsewhere, but if they totally get it, you've made a direct hit!
● General: Whether you realize it or not, you're in the midst of some amazing changes right now. Trouble is that the most productive ones usually take the longest to complete. Luckily, if you keep your eyes and ears open today, you'll find a few sweet shortcuts that will help you skip all of the boring stuff and jump right to all the fun stuff. These shortcuts will require a heavy amount of bravado on your part, but if you know how to fake it 'til you make it, you'll be all set!
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Could a promotion be in your future? Your confidence is contagious, and it's starting to attract attention from the right people. If you play your cards right, that's a definite possibility.
● Finances: You can't get excited about the day ahead of you, but you can force yourself to face it anyway, and that's a start. Use whatever motivational tools you've got tucked away for just this kind of occasion. You'll find yourself revved up and ready to go in no time.
● Love: Today calls for lots of sacrifice on your part, so don't expect to have much time to yourself. Don't dread the grind. Just put your head down and follow through. As you're plodding through the muck, someone cute might catch your eye.
● General: Sharing your life can be tricky, but you're handling the balancing act quite well -- especially now. The only thing you may want to watch out for is spreading yourself too thin. Unless you get enough time to yourself, you may lose focus on what it takes to make yourself truly happy. Feel free to back off on social plans or reschedule social events to get the downtime you need. Clear communication is essential -- let your loved ones know what's going on with you.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: This day will be burned into your memory because it's all finally clicking. It's a feeling that will last well into next week. Great results are coming in, and you may find yourself working on your day off because you're so enthused.
● Finances: You're more interested in art and music than you are in money but there is no reason you can't have it all. Apply your creativity in the right ways and you're bound to be both satisfied and financially secure.
● Love: Keep your inner drama queen at bay right now. The histrionics will scare that certain someone off right now. Your mantra? Fake it 'til you make it. It's okay to keep cool while your head feels as if it'll explode.
● General: You're not weak if you ask for help. Before things get to the panic phase, seek the assistance you know you need. Friends who have been there before are waiting for you to ask -- they have some wise advice you need to hear. Ask for what you need today. No bad assumptions will be made -- your reputation is stronger than you think! Emotionally, you are on solid ground, so be as affectionate as you want. Expressing your feelings will make you feel good!
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Give yourself a day or two to recharge, then surprise the competition with a new assault. If your freedom feels limited, it isn't -- you're just burned out and running on empty. A little bit of time should cure that!
● Finances: Don't overdo it. You may be led to believe you have some leeway when it comes to your spending, but you don't. Your safest bet is not spending anything at all until you're sure of your bottom line.
● Love: At first, your shattered plans will seem like the end of the world, but don't wallow too long in self-pity. What seems like a disaster turns out to be an interesting prospect. Let this one unfold slowly. Don't worry; it'll pick up quickly.
● General: If you reach too high for your goals, you may end up disappointing yourself. You hold yourself to exceptionally high standards, and it's been working for you -- to a certain extent. Today try setting more modest goals, and experiment with reduced expectations. It's time you gave yourself a break -- today just picture where you want to be three months from now -- not a decade! An easy plan will pop into your head and get you thinking positively.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Don't be shy about asking for help whenever you think you need it. After all, you have plenty of allies at your disposal, so don't worry about treachery or getting left to your own devices. Someone is always there to cover you.
● Finances: You know how to take care of yourself, and you do it in style. You deserve to. Treat yourself well today. After all, you work hard for your money. Don't let anyone guilt trip you into lavishing it on anyone but yourself.
● Love: Don't keep all that love energy to yourself today. Give it out with small gestures. Help a stranger open the door or hail a cab for an elderly person. Your friendliness will accrue huge assets in the karma department.
