● General: Give it all you've got and then some. You may not see results right away, but in putting forth a full effort, you'll learn to appreciate the process, and that's truly what's most important. Life may never be perfect, but it can be a lot of fun if you let yourself relish what's right in front of you. Enjoying the journey is what gives your day-to-day existence meaning. After that, the destination is almost beside the point.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: If someone else's slow pace is putting a crimp in your own timeline, getting frustrated probably won't help. Find a way to help them expedite -- without just taking on the extra work yourself.
● Finances: Sometimes the mere thought of trying something new has you shivering in your shoes. Today, though, you are a veritable pioneer. As long as not much money is involved, it's fine to let yourself test the waters -- here, there and everywhere.
● Love: When it comes to your love life, you have two powerful celestial influences behind you: the energy of new beginnings and the sheer force to see them through. Develop fresh ideas about your relationship status.
● General: The art of letting go isn't hard to master -- and not only that, you'll find that it makes life a lot easier in the long run. Besides, if you really did control the entire universe, there'd never be any surprises in your life, and where's the fun in that? So put your feet up and enjoy watching how this scene plays out. The ending may not only surprise you -- it might be far more perfect than anything you could have planned. Really!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Find those with common goals and pool your efforts. You're usually a solid solo performer, but you'll really excel as part of a team right now. The progress you can make together beats what you can accomplish alone.
● Finances: You're feeling slow and dull today. It's a great day to stay home curled up with a good book. Unfortunately, you can't afford to do that. Don't expect to make or break your financial future today, but you get points for simply showing up.
● Love: Close quarters help you develop casual connections. You can see them start to grow under your watchful eye. You don't have to agree to anything right away. The best thing right now might be to keep your options open.
● General: Playing the field is all well and good -- heck, part of the joy of life is keeping your options open. Even so, you should make an effort to act honorably at all times. So if you've got a ton of choices, please remember that other folks are involved too. You don't have to show all your cards by any means, but if it seems like someone's getting more invested in you than you are in them, it might be time to clear the air.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: An issue (or many issues) that seemed crystal clear last week may be evidently far less so now. And as for the action steps you'd planned, well, they may need rethinking. Find something executable.
● Finances: Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. Thinking idle thoughts to yourself is one thing, but turning them into the kinds of wishes the universe takes note of is a dangerous thing. Force yourself to be kind-hearted, even if it hurts.
● Love: Right now, the cameras are always on you, and prospective sweethearts have their eyes glued to your every move. Focus on your inner beauty and don't worry about how you look. You'll shine even brighter.
● General: Feeling just a touch on the crabby side lately? It's tempting to want to use those claws of yours to pinch any inquiring noses that try to poke their way into your business, but hold off on that impulse. People care about you, and they want to know how you're doing. If you really need some serious downtime, inform them politely yet firmly that you know what you're doing, and you'll come out of your shell when you're good and ready.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: If you have tasks that must be completed, double-check any detail-oriented elements. Concentration is not your strong suit now, so allow for some downtime from work if at all possible.
● Finances: Your mind is racing. It's usually your emotions that lead the charge, but today you are so full of ideas that you scarcely notice how you feel. Force yourself to pay attention or you could lose some valuable information.
● Love: When you make it easy for people to tell you the truth, you open the way for more romantic opportunities to come into your life. Remove your ego from the situation and you'll be able to better understand what they're saying.
● General: You're simply irresistible today -- something in the way you move is drawing admirers from all corners of the globe. It's not just your overall beauty -- although there is that, of course -- but the entire package. Learn to own your charms, even if you're normally a more shy and retiring type. It's true, being impossibly charming does have its drawbacks -- although actually, who can think of one?
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: If you're getting heat to sign on the dotted line, maybe it's time to walk away. If your instinct is telling you that this deal couldn't possibly be as good as it seems, by all means, look into it further.
● Finances: You've learned an important lesson, whether you've enjoyed it or not. Now take it out there and discover what you can do with it. You'll have more fun using what you now know than you did acquiring it.
● Love: You know what you don't want in a relationship. Good! Now figure out what it is you need to do next to get the ball rolling in the right direction, and then take direct steps to get that started.
● General: Some low blows may be coming down the pike, and if you can't duck, take the next best option and leap out of the way instead. This may mean taking the moral high ground, or maybe seeing what someone intends to do before they do it. In either case, assertive -- not aggressive -- action is definitely the way to go. If someone's determined to sling arrows of outrageous fortune toward you, get out of the way rather than step into their path.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Keep a low profile, and don't beat yourself up if you don't accomplish a great deal right now. You certainly take pride in having all your ducks in a row, but innumerable details may make this impossible at the moment.
● Finances: You share many of your things freely, including your company and your love. But when it comes to your money you have to think things through before you cut the pie. Take your time and don't let yourself be rushed by anyone or anything.
● Love: A casual interest develops into something else entirely when you see this person in a whole new light. A lighthearted relationship could become far more intense and meaningful. Anything is possible right now.
● General: To make a friend, you have to be one. So if you feel like you and a certain someone have been drifting apart, examine what you're really feeling. Ask yourself some hard questions too -- like have you been there for this person in the same way you want them to be there for you? If the answer's no, now's the time to start making some big changes for the better in the way you and you-know-who interact.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Even if you're sidetracked today, resist the impulse to plunge into a new project. You may have to watch helplessly as your regular routine goes right out the window, but that doesn't mean you should abandon your plan.
● Finances: It's hard to think about money when so much emotion is involved, but remind yourself that business is business. Making tough decisions is only as bad as you make it out to be. Besides, there is still room for compromise.
● Love: Some things are worth attempting, even though they may not turn out quite how you thought they would. Love is definitely one of those things. Hmmm -- maybe that certain someone is inspiring all this initiative.
● General: Your body and mind are meant to work together, so if one (or the both) of them seems out of whack, it's time to fix the problem. Maybe that means getting more sleep and watching less TV. Maybe that means taking the stairs at work instead of riding the elevator. Whatever method you choose, make sure there's cooperation between the two most important parts of your well-being. After all, you don't want one of them to go on strike.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Other people wonder how you work your magic -- well, let them continue to wonder. Visualize success in every detail now, and you can then transform your vision pretty much directly into reality.
● Finances: You're out to help others today, not help yourself. You're part of the bigger picture anyway, so you know that what's good for those around you is also good for you. Enjoy reaping the rewards vicariously.
● Love: It's time to figure out what your own needs are. Ignoring your true desires makes it very difficult to be generous to others. And after all, love begins with the ability to give, both to yourself and others.
● General: To find yourself, you might have to toss aside any preconceived notions you have about who you are in the first place. How can you really explore and discover what you're all about if you begin the journey with strict boundaries already in place? Who knows? Maybe you're a vegetarian. Maybe you're a dancer. Maybe your favorite color is really red, not pink. Maybe -- just maybe -- you're about to find out.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Your snooze button may get a workout this morning. Plan for an extra cup of coffee and a brisk walk to try to break through the ambient haze. When you get to work, double-check any detailed work you do.
● Finances: Putting some fun into the day makes it less of a slog and more of a game. You can get just as much done if not more if you let yourself go and enjoy it like a child would. Consider it Bring Yourself To Work Day.
● Love: When it comes to love, it's time to take your opinion into account and no one else's. Not only will that release tons of stress and anxiety, but your newfound freedom will give you the willingness to try new things.
● General: Change can be stressful, and that applies to changes for the better, too. It means leaving behind what was familiar and embarking on a new way of life. And you definitely have some changes (for the better) heading your way. So how can you minimize the stress and maximize the positive? You can acknowledge that things might be crazy for a little while. And that things will settle down soon. And, yes, that things are most definitely going to be different around here.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You may be surprised to find yourself in a philosophical mode now and making connections with others like never before. Is there something bigger than ambition, career and earnings? Only you can answer that question.
● Finances: Your job and your family are pulling you in two different directions, but the stress and worry caused by both is firmly in the middle. Unfortunately, that's where you find yourself today. Find a way to resist going too far in either direction.
● Love: The game of love can be fun, except when the rules keep changing. Refuse to get caught up in emotional blackmail and other kinds of manipulation. Be clear about what your moral code is and stick to it.
● General: Don't wait for life to happen to you. Make the life you want happen. So what are you waiting for? Opportunities and possibilities abound -- it's the life that you've always wanted. All you have to do is make that first, definitive movement toward it. Isn't life too short to waste? You know it is and it's time to get moving.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Play it safe and do an audit of your own. Keeping an eye on the numbers is something you'd really rather delegate, but it's imperative that you dig into accounting to ensure everything's adding up now.
● Finances: You're waiting for that big discovery or that important phone call to save the day. You're better off taking things into your own hands. That means focusing on more down-to-earth, hum-drum ways of making money.
● Love: What exactly do you want when it comes to love? Be open to anything. Before you know it, that will lead you to welcome everything, and that will lead you to what's truly important. Stay inspired.
● General: Sometimes to get yourself together, you have to allow yourself to go to pieces first. Sounds puzzling? Well, it can be. If the solution or the root of a problem has been eluding you, it's time to dismantle all the parts that make up the whole and examine each of them separately before you try to build some kind of coalition or solution. That way, you can identify where the issue is and really fix things, as opposed to applying merely a temporary solution.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Your intent awareness of the steps management is taking gives you an important clue today. Being finely attuned to your boss's boss (or your boss's boss's boss) is never a bad idea. In fact, at the moment it's an excellent one.
● Finances: You wish you were hidden in the shadows or wearing camouflage today. The last thing you want is to be caught in the spotlight. It's not that you're red-handed, it's more that you're not ready to expose a big idea.
● Love: Your kind heart increases your beauty and magically draws more love toward you. Remember, it only takes one good offer to change the direction of your life. Be open to all the possibilities. Right now, you're magnetic.
