● General: Today, set money issues aside and focus on things you can have an immediate effect on. Money can definitely give you power, but it can give you only so much -- so don't place too much importance on your finances right now. Money is not the only route to where you want to go. Your people skills are being wasted right now, so why not utilize some charm to move things along? A smile and a well-placed compliment may help you in a surprising way.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: The cutting edge is the place you should be, so block out some time to investigate innovations in your industry or field, even on this day off. Initiating an informational meeting gives you a chance to put your great new concepts out there.
● Finances: Try hard not to blurt out any unsolicited information. Emails are especially dangerous for you today because you can't take them back or pretend they never happened. Saying the wrong thing at the wrong time can cost you dearly.
● Love: Attracting 'em probably isn't the issue now -- it's determining whether they're attractive to you. Of course, there's the initial physical angle but investigate their heart and mind prior to getting too carried away.
● General: Right now, feeling good about who you are and where you are in life are getting easier and easier to do. You are appreciating the good things that are happening to you, and you are finally seeing them as blessings you deserve. This change in attitude is helping you feel more confident and more hopeful. And as your emotional health gets more and more robust, your physical health should follow. These two aspects of your life are more interconnected than you realize.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Set your priorities carefully and enlist someone to lend a hand. A rushed pace makes you less than completely comfortable with the quality of your work. Ultimately, you're the one who has to contend with it.
● Finances: You're ready to race ahead to your goal without any due diligence. That's not like you at all. Well, you don't have to be in character every day of your life. As long as you can afford to lose, take the gamble.
● Love: Make the most out of this stellar day! Your sexy, sensual side is shining through, even if you're dressed for work-related success; be sure to make time for romantic interests, both online and real time.
● General: Is someone failing to meet all of your expectations? If so, the problem could be with your expectations. You can either choose to rethink what you want out of this person, or make it clear to her or him that the current situation just isn't going to work for you for very much longer. Your disapproval might be just what this person needs to make some real changes for the better. Use your power to motivate, but make sure you aren't holding anyone to unrealistic standards.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Personnel at all levels has something to offer when it comes to your latest goal, so ask around for advice. What looks like small talk to them is you carefully gathering information from unusual sources.
● Finances: You can come up with a lot of good ideas just by talking with others. That means, of course, you'll have to share. If you want to keep everything for yourself you'll have to come up with all the plans all by yourself. Good luck with that.
● Love: Some new romantic information is en route, but you'll have to look carefully and listen up in order to get it. Hint: There may be some misinformation involved as well. Can you tell the difference?
● General: If a relationship isn't moving forward as quickly as you would like, take a look at who is driving all the action. Are you waiting for the other person to call you? To make the first move? To say those three little words? It's time to take a more active role. Say what you feel, because you have a right to say it! And this relationship may need to be shaken up a little bit. As long as you know how you feel, there's nothing wrong with sharing your feelings.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: The signs point to the door. While you formulate a longer-term plan or an exit strategy, just nod and smile for now. It's up to you to manage your stress appropriately while you're still in your current position.
● Finances: Everyone has some days when they just feel too overwhelmed to deal with business. You're having one of those days. No matter how many tasks need to be completed today, your best use of time is to kick back and decompress.
● Love: Take the helm and chart a new course when it comes to love! It's true that there are a lot of fish in the sea, but you may need to find some fresh waters and even different bait. Be the captain of your romantic destiny!
● General: Whether you realize it or not, your reputation has been on a steady climb upward for the past few days! Make the most of that today, when you run into a person who holds a lot of power in your life. Engage her or him in an interesting conversation. Don't just talk about the weather -- ask about a shared interest, for instance, or bring up a controversial (but not contentious) news item. It's a great day to make connections.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Even a mundane family reunion or a day raking leaves is fun with you involved. Bring your creative spirit and sense of humor wherever you go, and you'll elevate this drab day into the realm of play and adventure.
● Finances: If your friends seem to be the only ones impressed with your business plan, then let that be a wake-up call for you. Surrounding yourself with yes-men might make you feel good at the moment but it will only make you lose your money in the future.
● Love: You might think you've got a certain situation or person all figured out, but there are many nuances and layers now, especially in the subtle arena of romantic matters. Observe carefully, and you'll see lots more.
● General: You are entering a time of great organization and efficiency -- it's a philosophy you are ready to live by! Your highly structured personality is coming out in full force right now. It will help you have a very productive day, and it will help you enjoy a greater amount of self-satisfaction. Today, there is no amount of chaos you can't tame, no mystery you can't solve, and no problem you can't fix.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Tensions among family members or housemates are inevitable, and you may be caught in the middle now. If you can, play the diplomat and help bring the two sides together -- or keep them peacefully apart.
● Finances: It takes cold, hard logic to make decisions today, and you just don't have that. If you are used to going on instinct or emotion, then call in someone who can do your dirty work today. It's worth it at any price.
● Love: Your organized, efficient self might just be entertaining some highly impractical ideas right about now, perhaps ones that pertain to the realm of romance. Good for you! It's great for your heart.
● General: You should be in a very social mood right now, so why not hit that hot new restaurant in town with a few of your food-loving friends? Good food and a nice atmosphere will create the perfect environment for enjoyable communication and will set the scene for you and your people to relax. It's time to catch up on what's going on in one another's lives, don't you think? You deserve to treat yourself, and you deserve to splurge on one or two of life's necessities.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You have a way of making everything work out to everyone's advantage -- or at least making it seem that way. Seemingly opposed ambitions can be brought together beautifully now in your capable hands.
● Finances: You have too much energy to sit around and talk. Leave the intellectualizing to the others. You are going out there to do some hunting and gathering. Don't stop until you bring home the bacon.
● Love: Certain friendships, as well as relationships that could be of the more amorous sort, may hold challenges now, but you're more than equal to sorting them out. Look to build trust and deepen bonds. Equality is a must.
● General: Today, try to be more open about your fears and worries. Sure, doing so might leave you feeling vulnerable, but it will definitely take a huge burden off your shoulders. As soon as you start to talk, you'll feel relief. Share your emotions with others, and find out what they would do if they were you. You don't have to seek the comfort of someone who knows you well. Sometimes, the less someone knows about you, the safer he or she can make you feel.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Backing down from a conflict isn't your usual style, but getting into a domestic tangle now could get ugly quickly. Play the diplomat and look for a solution that works for everyone -- at least temporarily.
● Finances: You can't be too careful or read the small print too thoroughly today. There is a sticking point in there somewhere, and someone doesn't want you to see it. Be a nitpicker.
● Love: If you sense some competition in the romantic arena, you may well get caught up in the game. But is this what it's really all about? How do you truly feel? Might it be best to lay your cards on the table?
● General: It might feel as if your relationship is built like a house of cards -- it's shaping up to be quite impressive, but one slight breeze or jiggle could send it all tumbling down. This sense of insecurity can be tricky to deal with. So instead of letting yourself concentrate on the bad things that could happen, focus all that energy on what's going right. Don't take anything for granted: what is meant to be will be.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Working on your day off isn't exactly your idea of a good time, but if it's necessary, at least go into it with a good attitude. Take this rare opportunity to enjoy a relaxed day at the office, without any distractions or annoying coworkers.
● Finances: You're not interested in philosophizing today. What's gone is gone and anything else is just crying over spilled milk. Look forward to a better future and leave the moaning, groaning and analyzing to others.
● Love: Communications of the romantic kind are a snap now, probably because tuning into the details gives you lots of stuff to say. If they mention their pet, inquire about Fluffy; if they're all work, ask why -- and about fun!
● General: You've been taking a lot of risks lately -- and lucky for you, they've been paying off. But your luck is bound to change -- and it'll do so soon. Make sure you get ahead of the curve today by playing it much more conservatively. Make 'safety first' your motto, and approach the day's events with caution. Look both ways before crossing the street, and make sure your seat belt is on -- and avoid walking under ladders! Even superstitions should be obeyed right now.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Better safe than sorry. Safety and security issues may be on your mind, and for good reason. Minimize risk when it comes to financial decisions. It's a great day to change your passwords and update your spam and virus protection.
● Finances: You have no time to shoot the breeze today. You want the information and you want it now. But chitchat is all part of the game and to do otherwise is to lose valuable points. Force yourself to be patient.
● Love: The stars favor spilling it now, so why not confess to a little crush? It's a compliment of the highest order, and if you let 'em know in a lighthearted way, it's no big deal. Unless, of course, they feel the same!
● General: The eccentric energy that swarms all around you today won't annoy you as much as it would on any other day. Instead, you'll be able to use it to spark your creativity and start a few social experiments. Some folks you've been wanting to get together are finally free at the same time, so do what you can to get them in the same room! After the introductions, step back. You don't want to push people into anything that they're not interested in.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Watch for a chance to hook up with a mission-critical colleague after hours. You'll experience a refreshing feeling of satisfaction while building a strong, new relationship that will only help, not hinder, your career.
● Finances: They say that bored people must be boring, and there is some truth to that. Start ramping up your conversational skills and see how far it takes you. You could go from idle chitchat to a sizzling affair today.
● Love: What's their tale of love gone wrong (or right!) got to do with you? Well, no one said you can't learn from the mistakes (or successes!) of others, and now's an excellent time to do so.
● General: If you listen carefully to the soft voices around you, you will hear things of great value. It's easy to get distracted by the loud voices, but it takes your style of patience to hear what many people don't take the time to listen to. They're losing out, but you will gain in the end. A strong current of compassion is in your life right now, and this side of your personality needs to be encouraged. You will catch details others miss.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Someone purporting to be an expert doesn't have the same perspective you do on the realities of a certain situation. Take their advice into account, but don't ignore your own insights. Your gut will reign supreme in this case.
● Finances: Keeping people in the dark is a necessary evil today. When someone asks you for information, be as vague as possible. You have the uncanny ability to be on the money without being too specific.
● Love: Beauty inspires you now -- but of course, what you find beautiful may vary. If you like opera, some atonal jazz might grab you all of a sudden. Somebody who's the opposite of your type may look darn sexy.
