● General: If people came with warning labels, yours would say something like 'Danger. Do not test me.' Heaven help anyone who decides that it might be fun to see just how far you can be verbally pushed, because right about now, it won't be very far at all. Of course, as fiery as you are, this situation isn't all that rare, so the next best thing would be to have a t-shirt made up for occasions such as this.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Take all the time you need to hammer out your plan, then stick with it. Now's not a good time to be wishy-washy or unsure of the objectives. You have all the help you need to lay down a new strategy for future business.
● Finances: You're always the first in your crowd to try something new. This time, however, you're holding back. Your 'wait and see' attitude is wise when it comes to money. Playing it safe may not be glamorous, but in this case it's daring.
● Love: A dream, a story or a symbol bears a message about your love life now. Consciously cultivate your ability to see connections, interpret signs and understand your world as an interconnected whole.
● General: Making a new friend isn't easy for you, especially now. You're feeling even more secretive lately, so if you do decide to let someone in on what you're feeling and how you've arrived at your decision, they'd better understand just how special that makes them. Then again, if they didn't, would you have let them this close to start with?
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Right now, the protruding nail gets hammered down, so go conservative for now. Even if you're ordinarily one step ahead of everyone else, retreat a little and let others lead the way.
● Finances: The same rules apply to vacations that apply to every other area of your life right now: Be especially cautious before making any investments. Take your time and shop around. There is no such thing as spur of the moment fun, unless it comes with a price guarantee.
● Love: That one faraway (or maybe just across town) friend you've been meaning to call? Now's the time to catch up with someone who gets what makes you uniquely yourself. They've got a reminder for you.
● General: If anyone knows how wonderful it is to have entertaining friends, it's you. You've spent a whole lot of time cultivating just such a crew, and you don't take their affection lightly. You also don't invite someone into that circle without considering how their company will add to it, or how the existing members will take to them. So now that you're ready to open the books, be sure someone lets this fortunate newcomer know just how special the invitation really is.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Consider all your options, then look for undiscovered ideas that might catapult you ahead of the competition. Now is a good time to step back and refocus.
● Finances: You're always the one with a plan but sometimes that can be a bit of a bore. Let someone else take the reins for a while because you need to conserve your energy. Treat it as if it is your nest egg, because it is.
● Love: What's the meaning of this? Messages might be mixed, and signals may be mighty difficult to interpret now. You can do your part by being clear -- but still, you might want to wait on anything major.
● General: You've always had a great relationship with your superiors. In fact, they often treat you as if you're a peer; and most times, you feel as if you're part of a family. That's exactly how you'll feel now when the higher-ups actually come to you for advice. If tongues start to wag, don't be too stressed about it. Everyone needs someone else to talk about.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Lots of different people with different needs will march by, and you'll have to deal with each one appropriately. Your flexibility will be the key to success right now.
● Finances: You are quick to anger, but just as quick to laugh or cry. It's best to stick close to home while you are in this highly emotional state. Otherwise, you risk more than just ears. You're at risk of opening your wallet more often than is really necessary.
● Love: While you're out and about, be open and aware. You're very likely turning heads right about now, but if you're spacing out, you might just miss that significant look, that sweet smile, that unspoken invite!
● General: When you're happy, everyone's happy. There's no way around it. Your fiery nature just won't allow anyone to be depressed in your immediate vicinity -- not if you can do anything about it. At the moment, you're feeling pretty darned fine, which means you can and will do your very best to make everyone around you as happy as humanly possible. Stop short of interfering with the celebration of that well-deserved streak of luck you're currently enjoying.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Take all the time you need to unravel the existing office mess. Cast your net wide and you'll find the perfect resolution to your current problem (or problems). Everything's just great when you're in charge.
● Finances: You're tired of learning the hard way. You deserve to stumble across a bit of pain-and-worry-free information, and you'll do just that today. Consider it an intellectual windfall. You can't spend it but you can invest it.
● Love: Read and re-read that certain someone's online profile. Replay that voicemail to your heart's content. You're not obsessing -- you're just getting all the nuances. And that's just smart.
● General: If you're not sure about how to handle a certain situation that's far too delicate for prime time, don't mention it to anyone -- not just yet. You know as well as they do that there are still issues to be resolved, and until then, keeping quiet is best. You're in change and you know it, too. Call a meeting if you must, just to be sure that everyone is on the same page.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Touch, touchy. Everyone's so on edge today, and criticism might be taken the wrong way. So at today's meeting or conference, make sure everything you say is positive -- or at least is taken in a positive way.
● Finances: Your spirits are high and you don't want to do anything that doesn't keep them that way. Avoid all thoughts of money because they're likely to make you feel stingy, and that would only bring you and everyone around you down. Concentrate on your real riches.
● Love: Everyone's got an opinion about romance. Be tactful now when sharing your thoughts on others' love lives, and be prepared to examine someone else's evaluation of yours to find the help that may be there.
● General: Relationships are always your number-one priority, but at the moment, that's going to go double. Your lucky other half -- or prospective other half -- will enjoy all kinds of wonderful attention, all aimed at ensuring that they know not only how deeply you care, but also that those feelings aren't going anywhere. It's a given that your feelings will be returned, but it might be nice to have that conversation anyway.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Your understanding of your customers' needs is deeper than ever, and your ability to communicate how you can meet them is unparalleled. It's a great time for schmoozing and wooing new business.
● Finances: Just as you can't live by bread alone, you also can't live by love alone. Don't let your day be completely about relationships. Spend some time going over your bank account statements, paying bills or reconciling your checkbook. Something dull will make your love life shine that much brighter in comparison.
● Love: While your love life may not progress in leaps and bounds right now, little steps taken -- contact made, info exchanged -- can be especially pleasurable. Save the big invitations and sweeping declarations for later!
● General: If anyone can make plans -- good ones -- and see them through to the end without even thinking about aborting the mission, it's definitely you. You're a planner and a plotter, equal parts detective and analyst. You've got a plan going now that's just about perfect from beginning to end -- so much so that you'll be confident about sharing it with anyone. It involves helping a loved one out of a tough spot. Don't lose sight of your own needs in the process.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Stay flexible and you'll get what you want today. Don't be surprised if you're seized with the urge to change office routines and corporate structures. Hang back for now -- you might get a little ahead of your boss's comfort zone.
● Finances: When you say you're not in it for the money, you may be kidding yourself, but you're not kidding anyone else. That's okay because no one expects you to be a martyr. Admit your real motives and watch the real profits roll in.
● Love: An online flirtation can really go places now, with the back-and-forth gaining speed and heating up. Are you ready to take it to the next level and see whether the spark persists on the phone or in person?
● General: Generosity and excess is a dangerous pair of qualities to tote around, and it takes a special kind of person to do it. Those are your burdens. For the most part, you're up for the challenge and happy about it. Still, you really should ensure that everyone you're so very kind to appreciates what you're doing, and that they're not just taking you for granted. You should also take just a little while now to spoil yourself, simply because it's time.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: It might be time to steer your business in a totally new direction. If so, get started now. New ideas introduced today will be easier to grasp and implement, and the people around you are totally receptive to trying a new approach.
● Finances: You'll get plenty done if you don't mind being a trailblazer. Taking the easy route is out of the question. Besides, you have fun when you're faced with a challenge. Be sure to bring along a hatchet or its financial equivalent.
● Love: A direct correlation between what you're hearing and your love life may not be apparent, but turn it over in your mind a bit more. It applies in an unexpected -- and unexpectedly helpful -- way.
● General: You've never been shy, no matter what the subject or where you happen to be when it's broached. You won't be shy now, but if you start to feel a bit of it coming on, remind yourself that if anyone has the right to be confident, it's you -- especially since you've been so diligent and hardworking for so long. Relax. Let the rest of the world worry about your feelings for a change.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You're ideally suited for making small-scale course corrections right now. That's why it's a good time to recalibrate strategies and ongoing projects, and adjust them to current conditions.
● Finances: You tend to swing wildly from one extreme to the other. You're either a homebody or a workaholic. Today, you'll find that happy medium that has proven so elusive. The safety and serenity you'll feel will let you know you're there.
● Love: Getting what you want in your love life is very much about recognizing what you have to give. Get a head start by sharing your time, your help, your love with those around you who need it.
● General: If you're at all worried that you might say or do something to offend someone, especially if you're pretty darned sure about who it is and what the situation might be, take someone along for the ride who's equipped to mediate in situations such as this. You know whom to ask, because you've probably had to call on them in the past for just such a reason. Remember, too, that it's not you they'll be watching out for.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Your voice will be clear and affect others more deeply than you'd expect, so speak up in that meeting or conference. You might find a new offer waiting for you later in the day, or at least a new ally.
● Finances: You'll be out today shootin' for some food when up from the ground comes a bubblin' crude. Or something just as valuable. Your discovery has more to do with how you operate. Recognizing your own personal patterns is the first step toward mastering them.
● Love: Viva singledom! The stars say enjoy doing things your way on this day. Sleep late, stay in your PJs, get a massage -- set your own priorities and your own schedule, and luxuriate in it all.
● General: You're not much in the mood to shop at the moment, but that doesn't mean there isn't something out there that will appeal to you so much that you won't go through hell or high water to have it delivered to your door within 24 hours. If you're not sure you can afford it, call the one person you know who'll talk you out of it without making you feel like you've cheated yourself.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Your assistance is crucial to someone's success. If you have the time, drop what you're doing and lend a hand. When the dust settles and they've earned accolade for this work, this person will remember you for future projects.
● Finances: You're bewildered and befuddled, but so is the rest of the financial world. Pretending to be sure of yourself is a waste of time. Don't keep your doubts hidden. The ability to voice them is a valuable asset.
● Love: The cosmic cupid is right over your head wherever you go, so get out and about and make the most of it. Hang out at a cafe instead of at home, find a fun event for tonight and generally make life merry and bright!
