● General: The obstacles that are planted in the middle of your path today are not as daunting as they might first appear to be. You have to assess the situation, then step back and form a game plan. Early in the morning, read all your emails and line up your tasks for the day. Then, go get a cup of coffee. Taking a break before you dive in will help you stay fresh and get an accurate idea of the troubles that lie ahead. They won't look so big once after all.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Your cautious ways have served you well; keep up the vigilance to avoid some real problems at work. Think twice about signing any agreements. And try to do something selfless today. Why not pick up the slack of a struggling coworker?
● Finances: Money is coming in a lot slower than you had planned. In fact, it's only trickling in. Persevere, because there really is no alternative at this point. Your hard work will pay off eventually.
● Love: If you're feeling pressure regarding your relationship status, set some boundaries with others and give yourself a break. Everyone has an opinion on how you should run your life, but at a certain point, you have to tune out and do what's best for you.
● General: Everyone shows their affection in a different way, so try not to have specific expectations. If you are going on a date, keep an open mind and don't read more into their words than are really there. And if a friend isn't doing or saying the things that you would do or say, then so what? They are not you. And aren't you glad? Accept the way the people you care about communicate with you, and you will soon understand how much you really mean to them.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: It's all about trust if you want to move ahead. Keeping a brilliant idea under wraps may seem like a good idea, but sometimes it's better to team up with someone who thinks like you. Ask their input -- together, you could create the next big thing.
● Finances: You're feeling too good to deal with practical matters. Leave them for another day and indulge in all things artistic, romantic or sexy. As long as you're not breaking the bank, don't consider yourself negligent.
● Love: Step in and save the day -- you'll be rewarded tenfold. Someone you wouldn't expect needs your help, and only your particular set of skills can help turn the situation around. Don't hesitate to work your magic. This could be a huge break for you.
● General: Talking will get you anything you want today -- your way with words is especially captivating right now, and you will have the perfect terms right on the tip of your tongue. Verbal communication has long been one of your strengths, and today even more so. So this is a wonderful time to meet new people, especially people you want to impress. Job interviews, first dates, or any other type of potentially monumental appointments are going to go well.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Now isn't the time to make a change if you're feeling restless, but it's a great time to think about where you want to go next. Don't worry if you can't pinpoint it exactly -- clarity will come when in time.
● Finances: Why do obstacles continue to crop up before you? You're ready to wave the white flag. Don't. There's nothing in front of you that you can't deal with. If you can't find a way around it, go over it. And if you can't go over it, go under it. Etc.
● Love: Deflect inquiries about your love life for the time being. Interactions are emotionally charged at the moment, especially those involving family members. Issues of romance are particularly upsetting right now, so back off. You can talk about it another time.
● General: Food and captivating conversation go hand in hand right now, so if you are about to attend (or host) a dinner party, then you are in for quite a good time! Do your best to chat up the folks you see rarely. Get back in step with what is up in their lives. They have been going through quite a lot of changes, and could very well inspire you to start making some much needed changes in your own life. Feed your friends, and you will end up feeding your own soul.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Walking around will do wonders for your energy level and it'll put you in tune with others. So slow down on the emailing today and visit people face to face. It's a great way to spend the day and invigorate morale.
● Finances: It's a good time to follow up on a long-extended invitation. Whether you're the host or the guest, don't put it off another minute. Socializing is as good for the soul as it is the wallet today.
● Love: Amusement in any form will keep your spirits high and your negativity on the backburner. So if you need to blow off steam, take a coffee break with the office clown or roam the halls in search of a kindred spirit. Whatever you do, don't cave into the dark side.
● General: Listen to your heart closely today, because it's going to alert you to a new romance or love opportunity. This might not involve romance in the terms of a significant other -- it could very well mean that more romantic ideas and concepts are becoming more prominent in your life. But either way, you should keep yourself open to new opportunities and do whatever you can to honor a recent commitment you made with someone you have known for a very long time.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Early on today, the litany of requests from management will tempt you over the edge. Don't they know how much work you have? In the afternoon, however, you'll thrive on creativity and adventure. Save new tasks for after lunchtime.
● Finances: You're feeling stubborn and greedy today -- not the most pleasant state to be in. You certainly won't win any accounts today so don't bother trying. Wait until your funk lifts to attempt to make a buck.
● Love: A little conflict never hurt anyone, so start some ASAP! Hang out in the lunch room and discuss politics and religion. Ruffle some feathers a little -- verbal banter is just what you need to get you back on track. And if anyone gets upset, really upset, remind them it's just in jest.
● General: The act of soul searching doesn't have to be a solitary endeavor. If you are feeling aimless, or are looking for something new to be passionate about, get together with the one or two people who know you inside and out and talk about it. They have some exceptional insight about where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and can suggest some ideas or avenues that you would never have been able to come up with on your own. Invite their participation, and you'll invite them closer to your heart.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You may find that your ambitions have led you to ask for more work than you can handle. Before you panic, look for a pressure valve. If you're open-minded, you'll find plenty of opportunities to delegate, and you may be able to lighten your load.
● Finances: Something hidden in plain sight is suddenly visible to you. Whether it's an unusual place to catch a bite to eat or a good thing to invest your money in, you'll wonder why you didn't notice it sooner.
● Love: Some people just don't know when to quit so keep your boundaries intact today. A certain someone is armed with all kinds of questions, everything about your first time to your favorite sexual position. If you're not comfortable with the interrogation, change the subject; otherwise, let it fly!
● General: Sure, you're smart enough to know that life is not fair, but that doesn't always stop you from seeking justice and equality as you journey through your days. By maintaining this delicate balance between realism and idealism today, you will be able to handle any situation, no matter how bizarre or uncomfortable it might be. Becoming a cynic might save you some disappointment here and there, but it's much more rewarding to think that all people are equal and should be treated as such.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: If you've been hankering to make an epic career move, do some research and assemble a plan, complete with short-term and long-term benchmarks. Your list should include the kinds of skills and networking necessary for this shift.
● Finances: Don't spend time with people you are not at ease with. The last thing you need is to feel hyper-aware. If you can't relax and be yourself, it's just not worth it. Pass no matter what the expense is.
● Love: Reality has settled in -- it's over. But you're not totally in acceptance of this truth. If you need help processing your grief, talk it over with someone. Some wounds take lots of time to heal, so go easy, very easy on yourself.
● General: Is someone being a bit greedy in regard to you right now? Their nonstop attention and eagerness to spend time with you has been quite flattering, but today you might be starting to feel a bit claustrophobic. You've got a more introverted personality than you might realize, and it is wishing for some peace and quiet. Of course, you don't want to hurt this person's feeling by rejecting them, but you need to tell them to give you space. If you don't, they could start to annoy you.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Take some time to pat yourself on the back today. Look how far you've come in reaching your career goals. Many of your old dreams have become your reality -- good for you! Now, it's time to think up some new objectives to conquer.
● Finances: You can look at someone as your opponent or you can consider them someone you are involved in a partnership with. Either way, it's a relationship that's not going away any time soon. If money is involved, try to turn them into your friend.
● Love: Keep the conversation light and fun for now. You'll have plenty of opportunities later to discuss heavy-duty subjects. It's all about showing your dates what an amusing spirit you possess, so don't get too deep.
● General: Just because this day won't be very difficult doesn't mean you can turn your brain off! This is not a day to gloss over small details and just hope that everything is 'good enough,' because numbers and math will still figure prominently in your day -- either in the context of budgets, bank statements or taxes. Pay attention to what you're doing, get it done quickly, and then you can go off and enjoy the rest of this wonderful day!
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Take some time to get reorganized today -- you deserve that much. After a busy few weeks, your filing system has totally fallen apart. Are you sick of hunting around for files, losing important emails and missing meetings? Put an end to it once and for all.
● Finances: You can't be overly analytical today. And when it comes to zooming in for a close look, the smaller the details, the better. No one is forcing you to do this, either -- you know it's necessary. Besides, you enjoy it.
● Love: Look at the patterns in your relationships, all relationships, romantic and otherwise. You just might have an a-ha moment that resolves some long-standing internal issues. So do the work -- write it down if it helps. It's all about creating and maintaining healthy connections.
● General: You need to try to rein in your increasingly self-indulgent ways today. Keep driving right on past the shopping mall: cook dinner yourself instead of going out for pizza, and do you really need another spa day? It's a wise time to eliminate your excessive spending and get back to a simpler way of living. When you take a little bit of a break from pampering yourself for a while, you will appreciate it all the more when you go back to treating yourself like a rock star.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Helping a coworker for an hour or two is a tiny price to pay for the wonderful impression you'll leave on the higher ups. No one does it quite like you, and your creativity will make you stand out even more.
● Finances: You have so much to do you can hardly remember to relax. A walk in the woods is like a distant daydream. You can fit it in, though, or something similar without compromising your profits.
● Love: Everyone is capable of a blunder or two, even you, so cut your peeps some slack. The best way to help others today is to allow them to make mistakes. When you take your friends and lovers off of the pedestal you placed them on, it's easier to see their humanness.
● General: There is absolutely no excuse for feeling bored today! Even if there isn't much on your calendar, your phone hasn't been ringing, and no one is around to hang out with, you can entertain yourself for hours. While other poor souls can't ever feel comfortable by themselves, you won't have that problem today. When you're alone, you can do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it. So enjoy a day of following your whims, wherever they take you.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Make today all about your workload and your goals; be compassionate some other time. Coworkers are asking for your help but now is not the day to put everything aside to help others. You have priorities, after all.
● Finances: You're feeling a bit eccentric today. In fact, the distant past interests you more than the present. You can't live in it, though, so be sure to deal with pressing issues of the day, money not the least among them.
● Love: A certain lack of clarity is surrounding romance now, and, of course, you want to know exactly what the deal is. For now, hold back a bit -- pertinent information will make its way to you soon.
● General: When was the last time you wrote anyone a love letter? A love letter, not an email. You know, the old-fashioned, pen on paper note that you actually put into an envelope, stamp and then send via the post office? No one does it anymore because an email is so much easier -- but since when should convenience be such a big part of expressing your feelings for someone? Today, write a love letter to someone you care about -- it could even be you! You will brighten someone's life immensely.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Remember, your job is not your life. Put yourself first for once -- treat yourself right today. Buy yourself a luxurious gift; take a full lunch hour and indulge; or meet a friend for an extravagant meal.
● Finances: It would be nice to read poetry or linger over a delicious meal but you don't have time for such pursuits. You're all about money today and everything else seems frivolous by comparison. Sigh.
● Love: Don't hesitate to spice up your ho-hum existence. If you haven't changed your online profile, spruce it up today. If you've had the same hairstyle in a while, it's time to get with the program. One small change will make a world of difference in your life.
