● General: Today is all about the communities you live and work in. Your place in the world will be something you'll be questioning today, and that is totally normal and wonderfully healthy. Do you take the same role in every situation? Are you always the leader, always the follower, or do you take turns in this role? These are the questions you should address; you need to make sure you're being true to yourself and not compromising for the sake of popularity or politics.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Your style is more relaxed than usual, and you'll find it simple to put almost anyone at ease. Over the next week or so, you're in a great position to make a positive difference in negotiations or client relations.
● Finances: You have a bad case of ants and all you can do is watch them slowly file out with their crumbs on their heads. If you pinch yourself, you'll realize you're just dreaming, but it's based on your very real fears. Don't wait for your possessions to go the way of the breadcrumbs.
● Love: Turn the flame down low and let stuff simmer a bit. You'll notice something or someone you'll miss if you're in full-on working it mode. And by tonight, the stars start heating things up for you.
● General: Today you will be the beacon that all others follow. Your leadership potential has slowly (but surely) been maturing, and now you will be able to step confidently into the role as leader. This is a new beginning -- something you can really sink your teeth into. So go ahead and get excited! Your responsibilities might not rival those of world leaders, but they will be important to you -- and that is all that matters. It is okay to admit you don't know it all.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Come next week, make sure your name and face are out there so you get seen by as many potential clients and employers as possible. You are a hot property right now, whether you know it or not -- just be subtle about it.
● Finances: Feeling good is but one way to get motivated. Fear and anxiety are having the same effect on you as euphoria would. It's a shame you can't experience the joy today, but do make good use of the intense energy the dark side dishes up.
● Love: Whether you've got a couple online cuties to choose from or a wardrobe crisis, you'll get by with a little help from your friends now. Get a consultation, and send some photos if necessary.
● General: Quiet moments throughout this day will give you many opportunities to think about issues surrounding your immediate future. If you can, take a more passive role today -- you might not be in the right frame of mind to make tough leadership decisions. Compromise, not dogma, is what will feel most comfortable. Everything is a shade of grey to you now, and that's causing a small amount of confusion in your personal life. Direct your thoughts to this confusion today.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Diplomacy is everything right now and you're oozing with it. You'll have lots of questions over the coming weeks, but you may need to think them through and consider your wording before firing them off to supervisors or clients.
● Finances: It takes all the strength you have not to give up this morning. But once you re-commit, you're able to focus deeply on getting beyond today's obstacles. Your hidden powers are unleashed by simply staying put.
● Love: While all things creative are favored during the day, clear lines of communication may not be so easy. Nail down the details of plans early and confirm them often -- and keep love matters on the lighter side.
● General: Your fascination with the finer things in life could be holding you back right now. Are you devoting too much time and money to looking good but ignoring your poor emotional and physical being? Pare down your list of necessities and skip a few indulgences today. Get back to thinking about the things that really matter. Figuring out which of the latest gadgets you want to buy is fine, but it's not going to bring you the happiness or fulfillment you seek.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Your powers of persuasion will peak early next week. That's when people will be considerably more receptive to your ideas, so try to make your pitch sooner rather than later. You'll hit it out of the park if you can get them while they're paying attention.
● Finances: Coming up with fantasy scenarios gets old without any follow-through. If you've ever wondered if a crazy idea could actually fly, today's the day to find out. Give it a try. Sometimes that first step is the hardest.
● Love: Exploring some unknown territory -- whether in the world around you or philosophically speaking -- gets you all fired up in the most becoming way. And sharing those explorations makes you even more intriguing.
● General: Someone in your life has recently reached a major turning point, and they are starting to make some changes in their life you should find impressive -- and inspiring. So let go of your current goals and put them on the back burner for a while. Right now you should concentrate on learning more about how this person made the transition they made and why. Even if you have different goals in mind, their experience is something you can learn from now.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Your shooting star has arrived -- part of the reason you're on the rise is your ability to connect with almost anyone, so hop on and keep riding this astral rocket to the top. You're building up your status internally; just don't let it go to your head.
● Finances: Don't be in a hurry to start something new. You have too many unfinished projects as it is. If they have lost their luster, then remind yourself of the money to be made by wrapping up the loose ends. It's much more than loose change.
● Love: All sorts of creative enterprises are favored during the day, so consider giving your online profile an intriguing update or sending a couple enticing emails. Tonight, good times of all kinds are on tap!
● General: Recent dramatic events in a friend or family member's life might be causing you to think more about the quality of your own life. You can learn from the choices that other people have been making -- in fact, it is one of the wisest ways to get your life lessons. Today is a great time to reflect on what has been going on and figure out how you want to deal with it. Do you have your priorities in the right order? Putting yourself toward the top of the list (if not at the very top) is a good idea.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Over the coming days, your mind is geared toward authority. You are in a great position to do some serious thinking about the deep issues affecting everything from lunchroom policies to your industry as a whole. Keep the results quiet until you're ready to go public.
● Finances: If failure is a foreign concept to you, then you'll want to do all you can to keep it that way today. And if all of your efforts fail, then chalk this one up to experience. It doesn't mean your winning streak has come to an end, only that you've now had a reality check.
● Love: Expect plans to go awry, messages to be mixed and general oddities to abound. If you can meet it all with a sense of humor, however, you can certainly salvage something surprisingly sweet.
● General: You will be in the middle of all the action today, so be prepared to fight for every inch of the elbow room you need. Take a moment to look around at the people you are working with, and take note of how the company you keep is affecting your reputation. Are they elevating your market value or reducing it? You will soon get an accurate, objective view of what is really going on, and you might find that you need to make a few adjustments. Soften your blows with humor, fairness and wit.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: All of your interactions over the next few days will go smoothly, but pay attention to those longest-lasting relationships. A new connection next week will bring big benefits your way, both personally and professionally.
● Finances: If you were having food issues, you would want to look into the reasons behind it all, but not before you started dieting. The same is true for your financial issues. Your underlying problems must be faced, but not before you put yourself on a strict budget.
● Love: Take joy in the pleasures of singledom now. Do what you want to do at whatever time you want to do it. Treat yourself to a little something special. Go somewhere different -- either solo or with a friend.
● General: The speeding race car that is your life is about to hit a big, blinking red light. Something unexpected is going to happen today that forces you to stop in your tracks and take a long, slow look at where you are in life. Get ready to reassess your goals. It could be something as simple as a new person coming in to your life or as major as a flat tire on the freeway. Whatever it is, it is meant to be -- so approach it with flexibility and an open mind. Everything happens for a reason.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: What's important is a matter of perspective. Not everything you think you rely on is really that key to your career. Experiment with letting go of things until you are traveling through your next work week as lightly as possible.
● Finances: You do almost anything to avoid conflict, but sometimes even the most mild-mannered of people get mired in discord. You'll be ambushed today by something or someone who won't take no for an answer. Look at it like a contest, and be in it to win.
● Love: It's a sweet day to be you if the stars have their say, so get out and enjoy yourself in your favorite ways. The more active you are, the better; and the more people you meet, the more fun there is to be had.
● General: If you have the time today, work on reconnecting with some people from your past. Email is a great way to get back in touch without making too much of a commitment. Even if no one replies, you will feel good knowing you got things out into the universe. Take a stab in the dark and think about who is least likely to reply -- and then reach out to them. Your generosity is itching to get out and show itself, so let it lead the way in everything you write. Have a giving heart.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Don't fall for unverified or fallacious information. So much activity is going on that you might fool yourself regarding your financial situation. Though things may be looking up, you will still need to keep your personal business running smoothly.
● Finances: The big picture is certainly attractive, but it's the small details that will make it happen -- or not. Simply hoping they'll all add up to something big is wishful thinking. Put all of your efforts into the nitty-gritty today.
● Love: Caution: Do not operate heavy machinery with the energy the stars are sending your way! You're in a bit of a haze throughout the day. By tonight, though, you're tuned in -- and darned hot to boot.
● General: The activities throughout the day will create a lot of different possibilities, and it may be hard to decide which opportunity you want to explore. You have so few things limiting your options, and that is a blessing, but it is also a burden. For the first time in a long while, you don't need to ask anyone for permission about what to do. There's no resistance to work against. You'll end up a winner any way you choose -- as long as you choose with conviction.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Any extra effort you invest right now will have a much more profound impact on your professional life than you expect. You have considerably more influence over your career path than you realize: spend the day pursuing options.
● Finances: Before you invest, it's wise to do due diligence. No one else is going to do it for you. Find all the facts you need to be comfortable with your decisions today. Nothing can ever be a sure thing, but it helps to do your research.
● Love: Whether you're looking for a little make-out hookup or something more meaningful, the stars say you've got the right stuff to make a stellar connection. Hint: It's not all about spoken communication now.
● General: Your life is a marathon, not a sprint -- and you have plenty of ground left to cover. So do things today that help conserve your energy, not use it all up. Physical activity is fine, but just don't go overboard or try to show off. There's a risk of injury or embarrassment (neither of which is very pleasant to consider). Keep working away at a person you're trying to deal with. If they're trying to get the better of you, your perseverance won't let them win.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Over the next week or so, client relationships are key, and you'll be able to build or retain your customer base with ease. It's all in the face-to-face contact, though, so mix it up directly if you want them to keep coming back.
● Finances: You have some insight into what made your old relatives seem so darn eccentric. Your financial situation has you acting a bit peculiar, too. Get a grip on yourself before you do another thing today. Do the financial equivalent of taking a few deep breaths.
● Love: Treat yourself right, then share the love with those around you. Do something just for you -- could be something healthy just as easily as something indulgent -- and your outlook will improve exponentially.
● General: Making a sacrifice is never very much fun, but today it will be easy: You will see a clear benefit to making a tiny, painless alteration to your plans. A slight change will also be called for in your romantic life when someone asks you to sacrifice something you want for the sake of your relationship. Only you will know if this is asking too much; but before you decide if this is a deal-breaker, ask yourself if they would do the same for you.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: When you go into the office first thing Monday morning, delve into your accounts payable -- it could be riddled with unforeseen issues. And, it's also a good time to reconsider debts and payments: you may want to seek advice from all sides.
● Finances: What is called for to set things right is not a drastic monetary commitment or a withdrawal of funds. All you need is a good dinner or a good read. The basics are as medicinal today as they always have been. Relax and enjoy.
● Love: Laundry, schmaundry -- don't waste the super stuff the stars are sending your way on routine. Errands will wait; the fun you could be having doing new things and impressing new people won't.
