● General: You have been putting aside your own interests and needs for so long that you might be losing sight of what they actually are! Today is a good day to put yourself first once again, and do whatever you want to do -- when you want to do it. No one will get upset if you reschedule a meeting or postpone a date. In fact, you might be doing them a favor. You cannot decide on your next move by checking in with other people, anyway. Check in with yourself and with your heart.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Strike a sustainable balance. Whether it's less fast food, fewer beers at happy hour and more exercise, your health shouldn't take a backseat to your work. Even you can afford to spend a little time out of the office.
● Finances: You don't mind being around others -- as long as they don't expect much interaction with you. You're looking inward today and shouldn't let anyone distract you. You'll find your own, personal gold mine if you look hard enough.
● Love: Get ready to sparkle and shine. You're at your best when you're feeling healthy and strong. So if you're been skimping on exercise or drinking, smoking and eating too much, it's time to make some changes.
● General: Be careful not to overdo it today -- keeping things on an even keel will do wonders to your energy level and your social life. So if you're going to a party, don't put on your very best outfit and bring an expensive gift. Just be yourself and that will make people feel more comfortable. At work, don't make a big show out of your latest idea -- just present it, argue for it, and then let the chips fall where they may. Being too loud will only show you in a bad light.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You can bridge the gap like no other. That's why your ability to form alliances with your colleagues is the key to your success. That skill, along with a big dose of charm and charisma, will come in handy during a tough situation today or tomorrow.
● Finances: You're plagued by deep emotions. Yes, plagued, because they are hard to experience without flinching. People pay good money for experiences such as this, so flinch if you must, but don't ignore.
● Love: Stop hiding behind the telephone or the computer. Your one-on-one presence is perfect today. If you haven't yet met that online crush, it's time to make a date and meet face to face. Share your brilliance.
● General: A small snag could trigger your temper today, and leave you feeling frustrated -- and maybe even a little embarrassed for losing your cool. But later in the day, the universe will send you some high energy that will make you feel good. This attitude resetting will enable you to look at this obstacle and see it in a new light. Suddenly, you'll see a way around it -- a short cut! Things might get off to a rocky start, but they are sure to work out by the end of the day.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Between rumors of budget cuts and evidence of layoffs, things are getting ugly around the office. In spite of it all, try to stay professional. You will be judged not on how you fall apart, but how you handle yourself in the face of adversity.
● Finances: If you don't start going a bit slower, you're going to compromise your health. Take it easy for a change. Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will your fortune be. Remember, slow and steady wins the race.
● Love: Dating isn't always nice and easy, is it? If you run into bumps in the road, find the humor in the situation. Things will be better next time. After all, you need a few good stories to share with you pals, anyway.
● General: You need to take care of issues around your home right now, so try to put your household on the top or your priority list. Whether it's minor repairs, major renovations or just some rearranging of furniture, putting physical energy into your intimate surroundings will energize you and fill you with a sense of pride that you haven't felt in quite a while. Get creative in your tasks, too -- and ask a friend to help you out if the job is too big for just one person.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Don't hesitate to clean where cleaning's due. That pile of clutter around your desk isn't going to organize itself. Spend your downtime today straightening up a little; you'll feel relieved when you can find what you're looking for.
● Finances: You are in a state of total uproar. You shouldn't consider signing any legal documents until the turmoil passes. Why commit yourself to this kind of upheaval when you can simply wait for things to go a bit smoother?
● Love: Concentrate on the moment and let romance happen on its own time. If you've been hesitating, now's your chance to make plans with someone you've been meaning to spend more time with. The universe will take over from there.
● General: Today, some people will agree with you, and some people will not. And you need to learn how to accept those who don't see things the way you do. They're not trying to dismiss you, they're just being themselves. You can't waste your energy picking fights with people about things you cannot change -- namely, the way they think. If you butt heads with someone, just move on to other people and other things. Agree to disagree, and save your strength for things you can actually change.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Remember, progress never comes without a few unexpected hurdles and setbacks. So don't be surprised if a business strategy you thought was perfect needs tweaking or a reassessment. And by the way, throwing a fit won't help your cause.
● Finances: Don't be fooled by appearances. All the good stuff is beneath the surface. Take the time to look deeply into whatever you are considering today; from business deals to friendships, nothing is as it seems.
● Love: You're having a hard time putting it all into perspective lately -- sounds like a job for your favorite confidant. Treat him or her to dinner and lay out your thoughts about life, love and anything else you need to discuss.
● General: Be wary of people who are pushing you to make a big purchase today, especially if they occupy a partnership role in your life. Anyone who is pushing you to make a decision might have ulterior motives -- although not necessarily bad ones. But you cannot afford to spend your money on something unless you know the whole story behind why they feel so strongly that you should buy it. This is not the time to let yourself get pressured into anything. Take things at your own pace!
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Manage things from backstage and the sidelines today. Maybe you can't be in the spotlight on this particular assignment, but that's okay! You'll get another chance to show your boss (and the world) the miracles you can perform.
● Finances: You'll just keep asking until you get the answer you want. Is the word 'no' really that hard to hear? As much as you want something, it's time to be realistic about your goals -- before it's too late.
● Love: Your eye for aesthetics is strong, and it's high time you did something nice for yourself. Whether it's a trip to the spa or a day shopping for cars, do something you absolutely love. It'll replenish your soul.
● General: The power balance in one of your more complicated relationships is starting to be an issue -- you two do not have equal power, and it doesn't look like this imbalance is likely to change any time soon. So what can you do about it? Investigate another partnership, that's what. Even if you are the one who holds all the cards, it isn't healthy to have a relationship that is this off-center -- and it simply won't last much longer unless you two come to a serious agreement.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: No one expects you to finish it all at once. Remember this today when work starts getting hairy and unmanageable. At some point your workload may become so overwhelming, you'll feel like doing nothing at all. Take things a little bit at a time.
● Finances: It feels as if your choice is between being stingy and giving the shirt off your back, but there is a middle ground you are ignoring. It may not be as dramatic or glamorous, as the case may be, but it's much more comfortable for your wallet.
● Love: A fresh set of opinions will make a world of difference right now! Grab a socially savvy pal or two and bounce ideas back and forth. After all, it's no use trying to sort through your romantic plans and projects alone.
● General: You cannot take popular opinion seriously right now. The mob mentality is all based on the lowest common denominator -- and common you are not! Disregard things that are too trendy right now and opt for quality clothing and goods that have stood the test of time. It's awfully easy just to go along with the crowd, but the crowd never goes anywhere interesting, does it? Swim upstream today and carve your own niche out of life. It's much more rewarding.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Do the grunt work now and you'll enjoy big rewards down the line. Doing your homework is critical when it comes to securing funding or nabbing a major project. A little preparation now will put you heads and shoulders ahead of the competition.
● Finances: Your intensity draws people to you. Unfortunately, it repels financial opportunities. Decide which is more important to you today -- being socially magnetic or making a profit. You can't have both.
● Love: Clear your schedule and enjoy the easy, comfortable company of pals. Put your dating activities on hold, at least for a few hours -- you'll have plenty of time later on to obsess over that new hottie.
● General: Today, your presence at work will be required by a group of important people who are looking for a solution -- and they think you have it! This is not a time to get nervous, though -- this is a time to get very, very excited! The fact that they need you shows just how valuable you are, so use that to your advantage in the future. Make note of this episode and remind people about it when it's time to talk about advancement. People have short memories, so the updates are up to you.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Slow down and do it right the first time. After all, you're in no hurry to right now. If you squander your time by rushing ahead and glossing over the details, you'll only have to backtrack later.
● Finances: Your imagination is working in overdrive and that's just fine. You may make up a scenario worth pursuing in real life so pay attention. You can come up with an entire business plan lost in reverie.
● Love: Please -- you don't have to spend a fortune to impress that hottie. Why not suggest a cheap date? Order takeout and find a picturesque location to eat your fare. That shouldn't be hard this time of year -- the leaves are changing everywhere!
● General: Do you think that the people who are in positions of authority over your life are not interested in what you have to say right now? Nothing could be further from the truth -- they are dying to pick your brain. Ignore anyone who tries to keep you out of important discussions; they are just jealous that your profile is getting higher and you are surpassing them in the eyes of important people. You count, too -- in fact, more than just about anyone else, right now.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Long-distance phone calls or emails to faraway colleagues will prove invaluable today. Others in your industry can help you muddle your way through a tough situation. Don't worry -- you'll return the favor someday soon.
● Finances: It's time to make hard decisions that you have been putting off for long enough. If you're not yet sure which side to come down on, then do some serious introspection. Just don't let the day slip by without deciding one way or another.
● Love: Looks aren't everything, you know. Even if you're not totally turned on by this person's physical appearance, give it a chance. Once you get to know what's going on underneath (especially in the bedroom), you won't give this superficial stuff a second thought.
● General: Finishing other people's sentences will be easy to do today, you're so in sync with the folks you'll be working with. But it might be in your best interest to keep this level of connection to yourself -- knowing that you can practically read their mind will not set people at ease. Having this level of synergy with everyone will boost your confidence and enable you to move the conversation in a direction that will include more opportunities for your personal or career growth.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You'll have a tendency to blow things out of proportion today. So before you turn this little skirmish into a major battle, make sure it's what you're really after. Sometimes watching and waiting is better than making a federal case of it.
● Finances: Work opportunities have slowed down. Not only do you need money, but you need to feel useful. There are plenty of ways to give that don't involve money and you shouldn't consider them a last resort. Be socially useful and the money will follow.
● Love: You've been doing a lot of taking lately without giving back much in return. Set aside some time today to reconnect. If you don't, the inequity of your actions will start causing resentments among your people.
● General: If you're dealing with a group of people today, try to push your own agenda a little bit more forcefully than you normally would. Instead of just going along with the crowd, be a little bit more firm about what you want to do. Being extra-insistent will enable you to get exactly what you want -- without annoying anyone or making them feel pressured. Why? Because you have more charm and charisma than the average person.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Empathy more than pressure will help you seal the deal today. So when you're dealing with a difficult customer or client today, put yourself in their situation. Maybe they're just being cautious -- after all, things are tough all over.
● Finances: You're tired of being treated like a doormat. And you're even more tired of being afraid to do something about it. You are worth more than your salary and don't ever forget it. Putting your foot down is a valuable career move.
● Love: You're full of energy today, so make the most of it. Get all the details done in the morning and early afternoon. Later on, you'll be unencumbered -- ready to put on your dance shoes and break hearts all over town.
