● General: Talking you into parting with your hard-earned cash won't be an easy task at the moment, even for the most skilled salesclerk. Of course, if you do see the perfect item, heaven help anyone who tries to come between you and your purchase. You're famous for going through obstacles, not around them. Impulse may be your middle name, but for the time being, determination will run a close second.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Making the change is as important as the change itself. This is a great time to introduce a new element or structure into workplace culture -- it can be almost anything from a new policy to an office remodel.
● Finances: It's time to put your foot down. You don't have to crack your knuckles or do your best thug routine, but you do have to insist on what's yours. Being agreeable is not as important as getting your money right about now.
● Love: Keep your values front-of-mind (and front-of-heart) right now. If you act and live in ways that demonstrate your core beliefs and innate goodness, you'll naturally attract those who share them.
● General: Regardless of what the universe tosses your way or how suddenly it's tossed, you've always been much more liable to wait, think and consider what to do next than to react immediately. That trait has come in handy more than once, but it won't do the job now. What's called for at the moment is the ability to act quickly and be bold enough to make the consequences of those actions stick, both of which you definitely have covered.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: It turns out that you're more productive when following your own drumbeat. So take a moment to listen to your heartbeat and try to work at that pace rather than the rush of activity surrounding you.
● Finances: Keeping your focus on money is not as exciting as it sounds. Sex appeal and decadence are not exactly your style. It's all about the numbers, as far as you're concerned. But if others find that attractive, who are you to dissuade them?
● Love: You've got a way with words now -- and with smoldering glances, slight touches, ready laughter and more. All you have to do to bring 'em flocking is get out and start enjoying yourself.
● General: You've done your best to keep a delicate issue under wraps for some time, but it's become a lot more difficult lately, mostly because of one particular person who's managed to burrow quite deeply into not just this particular situation, but others, as well. If -- no, when -- it becomes clear that they're going out of their way to make things melodramatic, don't be afraid to give them their walking papers. The universe is most definitely on your side.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Don't be shy about going for what you want; right now it will work out well. Your ambitions are showing, and they're impressing the right people. It's time to break ahead of the pack and race toward what you really want from you life.
● Finances: You feel like you're being hunted, and it's no fun being the prey. You're tempted to run away but bills will still be waiting for you no matter where you go. As they say, you can run but you just can't hide. Face them instead.
● Love: The more ideas you generate and the more information you collect in the realm of romance right now, the more amazing it'll all get. Ask a million questions -- and listen carefully to all the answers.
● General: A while back, someone happened to mention to you that keeping things peaceful between friends and family members was something you were pretty darned good at. The nurturer in you loved that, and ever since, you've done your best to foster that reputation. A serious challenge is en route now -- one that will take all your best efforts to resolve. Your antennae are keen, however, so you probably already know what's coming. Start work on that project now.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Don't be surprised if you feel rushed all day -- just try not to let yourself speak before thinking. It will be tempting to let the words fly out of your mouth (or pen) without editing them first.
● Finances: You're coming up with some crazy ideas today. You might not dream of following through on any of them if it weren't for the company you're keeping. Family and friends are encouraging you to take wild risks. Go for it.
● Love: The more people you talk to now, the more fun you'll have -- and the more new admirers you'll acquire. Go on, say hello -- practice on all types -- and ask them an off-the-wall question to get things rolling.
● General: Ready to be the boss? To pass out tasks, delegate authority and make sure everyone under you is towing the line? Of course you are. You've been studying for the part your entire life. Well, it's show time. Don't let anyone who's jealous undermine you, whether it's by tossing you a demeaning glance or making a snide comment. You know you're good, and you know the higher-ups know -- or they wouldn't have chosen you. Ignore the intruder. They'll definitely be gone soon.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Take action right away when a new customer changes your mind about some important issue. You'll get farther ahead the faster you move on this. Remember, this person probably is more in tune with the trends than you are.
● Finances: It's time to roll out the red carpet -- or walk down it. Someone is getting the royal treatment today and it just might be you. You deserve no less, but as you know, that's not always the deciding factor. Be gracious no matter which end of the festivities you are on.
● Love: A certain matter of the heart that might've appeared to be simple reveals its many subtleties, layers and complexities now. Denial's not going to get you anywhere; start delving in so you can deal.
● General: Ordinarily, you're quite merciful when it comes to verbal debates with those who obviously aren't in your intellectual league. You'll do that now for as long as you possibly can, but if they push the envelope ... well, let's just say you'll not only win the debate (if you can call it that) hands down, you'll also be able to walk away with your head held high and your pride intact -- which is much more than your adversary will be able to say.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Take some time during your off hours to pore over budgets and requisitions until your eyes start to cross. That's the only way you'll be able to absorb everything you need for the upcoming financial storm.
● Finances: You have to find an unusual way to express your ideas. The regular ways just aren't effective anymore. If you can say it with roses, then you can say it with dinner, a trip or a philosophical conversation. Just make sure you get your message across.
● Love: Take equal parts insightful reasoning and intelligent passion, and what have you got? A beautifully balanced outlook that's perfect for a greater understanding of romance -- and how to proceed. You've got it now.
● General: Some secrets just won't stay hidden, no matter how hard you try. Apparently, you've run into one of them. So now, when this issue just refuses to stay put, your mission will be to put on a happy face -- the kind of face that tells the world at large you're absolutely delighted about all this -- and to act, perhaps, as if you thought everyone already knew anyway.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: If you're feeling down or your personal life is suffering from your work schedule, deliberately try to change your attitude. You'll quickly see some positive results from you and the people around you -- at least it's a start.
● Finances: Money feels like food for your soul, but it's not. You can use it for all kinds of enriching things, though, if you handle it the right way. But being a glutton isn't healthy no matter how you slice it, so don't be too possessive about it today.
● Love: If you're peering at a certain romantic situation through some rose-colored lenses, it's time for a reality check. A smart friend can help -- just be truly ready for their real-deal opinion.
● General: If you haven't yet had the chance to walk on fire -- physically, that is -- that doesn't mean you haven't done it in a hundred other ways, symbolically speaking. So now, when the person you adore asks for something they think is so above and beyond the call of duty that even you might not be able to pull it off, you'll be just tickled to announce that doing something like this for someone like them is nothing. Nothing at all. Not for someone like you, anyway.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: It's a fantastic time to consider new projects. You're experiencing a renewed vigor with the change of seasons -- don't let it go to waste. Start taking notes and commit to discussing your ideas when you got back to work on Monday.
● Finances: Enter the game mentally prepared to win, not lose. You are more powerful than you realize and beyond ready for a strong opponent to take on. Dare yourself to defy your own expectations before entering the ring.
● Love: If they can't take the heat, they're gonna have to get out of your kitchen. You're not mincing words now, and you're looking for someone who can keep up with you. Give 'em a few ingredients and see what they can do.
● General: Fevers aren't just physical in nature, as you already know. They can also be emotional, spiritual and intellectual. At the moment, you're feeling warm to the touch, and it's not just your forehead that will tell the tale. You're hot because you're running on high, emotionally speaking, and even if you could take something to make it stop, you'd pass.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Away from the office and out of the frenzy, allow yourself to absorb some gratitude and serenity today. You may fall in love with your job or career all over again. The smallest thing might set you off, but you'll be humming a happy work tune pretty soon.
● Finances: It's hard to be analytical when you're so emotionally invested. That's why people pay good money for professionals. Hand your problems over to someone who doesn't have their nose pressed up against your financial issues. It's the best way to deal with this situation.
● Love: The little things are very telling now, so don't let them slip past you. Tune into every word they're saying, and listen also to your own reaction. Your gut feelings plus careful observation make you an emotional genius.
● General: Regardless of the time spent together, there are ups and downs in every relationship. You, of course, know that. You understand the importance of time spent together, so you're less likely than most to leave a relationship when times are tough. Now, then, when times are anything but tough, you're also more likely to express your gratitude and appreciation in a wonderful, thoughtful yet practical way. Just don't be too, too practical. A nice long hug is priceless.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You've been putting something off in your personal life, and someone in particular is getting irritated with your lack of action. Even if it's the last thing you want to do today, compel yourself to get it done. It'll be a huge relief.
● Finances: Your efforts are never economical. You put all of your energy into whatever you're doing with no regard for the future. You're dangerously close to sputtering out, though, so try to remember to relax.
● Love: The more fun you're having, the hotter you are -- it's that sparkle in your eye, that glow that makes them want to be having fun right by your side. Find an off-the-wall activity, a random event, anything different!
● General: Change is necessary for several reasons, and you completely understand that. After all, change is second nature to you -- the more sudden the better. Still, even you occasionally have a problem adapting, especially if it happens without your input. Fortunately, everything that's going on now was more or less personally orchestrated by you. Count your blessings and resolve to be patient if it's not always this way.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Maybe it's time to start your own business or turn your hobby into a cottage industry. You see a pattern where no one else did before, and it'll definitely set you off in a new direction entirely.
● Finances: You're the chairman of the bored. Your attitude may seem strange to some around you but you know where it comes from. The last thing you ever want to be like is one of your stodgy old relatives, with or without the money.
● Love: The mentor-mentee dynamic is indeed a hot one -- no matter which role you're playing, it ignites your imagination and fires up those synapses. Share your expertise, coax a certain someone into sharing theirs, or do both!
● General: You've never been especially fond of idle chatter. It's not that you don't like chatting with friends. You just don't like wasting your time on conversation that means nothing at all. In fact, you don't like participating in anything that doesn't have a meaningful ending. You've been dealing with that type of thing for days and you're tired of it, but there's light at the end of this tunnel now, and you know it -- the kind that will actually show you something.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You're at risk of pursuing dreams you can never attain, so make sure to get a good, solid reality check today. Don't confuse your fantasies with your ambitions. If you're still feeling unclear, discuss it with someone else.
● Finances: It takes money to create the kind of beautiful illusion you have in mind. It may or may not be worth it -- Hollywood was built on it, after all -- but without the funds you're stuck with smoke and mirrors. Do you have the kind of creativity it would take to pull that off?
● Love: Your imagination and sense of humor make a very winning combination now. Look for someone who shares your sensibility, and give them a little peek into your mind and your funny bone.
