● General: It's time to give that horse one last lash and let it rest in peace. At this particular moment in time, it will be far easier to get mad and stay that way than to forgive and forget; but that doesn't mean it's the best thing to do. In fact, if you're really still interested in keeping things together between you and the person you've been feuding with, why not lay all your cards out on the table, be totally honest and get the problem solved once and for all?
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: It's a good time to put the finishing touches on old work and move on. Take another look at your milestone chart -- you're farther along than you think.
● Finances: There has been a hint of something new in the air and now it's positively arrived. There is no denying how different things are in your life. Your money changes are only the beginning. Start exploring the rest.
● Love: Avoid the realm of romance entirely today if at all possible. Everything's about as clear as mud, and while your instinct is to plunge forth, taking as little action as possible is the smartest way to go.
● General: If you need time to mull something over, take it. It's definitely your turn. After all, you'll absolutely need some time alone now. Of course, you may have to fight for it. In other words, rearrange your schedule, cancel some plans you've had for a while, or put a certain social engagement on hold. It's not pleasant, of course, but you'll just have to do what you have to do to preserve your sanity.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Protect your back at all costs. There's a good chance of power struggles and backbiting spinning out of control, so keep an eye on rivals and other questionable folks in the workplace.
● Finances: The last thing you want to do is buy something when you're in too much of a hurry to check out the competition. You could be overlooking a major way to save, or spending on extras that are completely unnecessary. Slow down and do your shopping right.
● Love: Solo time's fine, but right now the companionship of your nearest, dearest and funniest friends is in order. They'll dispel any blues, tell you how great you are and get your heart back in the right place.
● General: You may not be your usual assertive, aggressive self, but that's nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone who knows and loves you will understand, especially based on what you've been dealing with lately. Okay, you can stop worrying about your big, tough reputation and come out of hiding already. Just do yourself a favor and don't go overboard trying to prove yourself. It's okay to crack.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: You'll want to drift off into your own world when things start to get slow. Why not? Go for it! You have some good thoughts brewing down there. So why not ease into your subconscious and see what's going on?
● Finances: Everyone is giving you financial advice. It's hard to take, much less sort out the wheat from the chaff. There is a lot of value to be gleaned from it all if you take the time to listen thoroughly.
● Love: Communication's a little sticky today, especially in the realm of romance. You may be judged on something you say that you don't really mean -- so think ahead or prepare for damage control.
● General: Show a little more compassion today, no matter how painful it is. Those you usually find to be great fun to hang around with may not be quite so much fun now. In fact, you could become a bit more irritated with them than usual. If that happens, take a step back and look around. Sure, they may have more energy than you can deal with, and they may be quite determined to have their way, but isn't that what being young is all about?
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Arguments might erupt over money today. Whether it's how to spend a windfall of cash or how to balance the budget, you'll probably be front and center in the scuffle. Don't let your emotions take over.
● Finances: Your mental reactions are lightening quick today. You can add and subtract like a savant, so there's just no pulling one over on you. Go ahead and let others rush you; you can still best them at their own game.
● Love: It's hard to concentrate when your mind keeps wandering off down the path of romance. See if you can't schedule some daydreaming time -- exploring what's in your heart is important now.
● General: You may feel you're absolutely right when it comes to your point of view, but if pushing the envelope causes a long-term rift between you and someone you care about -- someone you already haven't seen in far too long -- think about the cost of winning the battle and losing the war. Instead of going all-out to win, be ready to compromise. Don't let petty issues get between you and a long-distance loved one now.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: If you're experiencing more than the usual head-butting today, check yourself and make sure it's not just an ego thing. That's a distinct possibility right now. If it is, cool off for a while -- let others take the lead.
● Finances: It's time for one of life's lessons. You enjoy learning the easy way but today unfortunately you're learning the hard way. If you thought you had already graduated from the school of hard knocks, think again.
● Love: Your generous spirit means you like to think the best of people, but someone may not be as fabulous as they seem. Try not to get too excited, and ask some provocative questions.
● General: There is a happy medium and you, of all people, can manage it: Be direct, but civil. If you're irritated with a loved one now, they're certainly going to know about it. In fact, everything you feel will be quite obvious to whomever you're with, and those feelings will last for a long, long time. That means you have a decision to make: Are you going to be polite and stifle what you're feeling or just let it out?
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You'll start the day with a new scheme to improve efficiency -- maybe just for you, but maybe for the industry as a whole. Spread the word and enlist others to join in. You're going to change things for the better.
● Finances: You want more than money. You need to do something that gives you a sense of purpose. Take your time figuring out what that is. In the meantime, keep plugging away at making a living.
● Love: It's all up in the air now, and this fact may make you a wee bit nervous. You'd like everything to be in its place -- but some new stuff is brewing that's so big and beautiful, you'll need to make a whole lot of room.
● General: While you're waiting for the universe to catch up with what you want to do, make plans. Sticking to your routine will be far easier than breaking out of it now, even if you're in the mood for change. You can spend this time wisely by deciding what your next move will be -- this makes much more sense than just sitting there, tapping your fingers on the table -- or you can make excuses. That's not really a choice, is it?
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You'll have a great day and share the love with most of the people you come into contact with, possibly sparking a little workplace flirtation (if that's what you're looking for). If not, flirt anyway.
● Finances: You're completely focused on your relationships today, to the point where you can't see important financial data. That's just what a special someone has in mind for you. Try to be aware.
● Love: Your usually graceful, effortless balancing act is starting to look a little frantic. Get off the high wire, or at least make sure there's a strong net; you can't always do it with the greatest of ease.
● General: Buckle your emotional seatbelt -- you're about to hit a rocky patch on a rough journey. You may need to travel or make contact with someone who's quite a distance from you now -- and it's probably going to be for some very serious reasons. The good news is the end result will make you feel good about yourself and far more secure in all your relationships.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Subterranean tensions might burst out and create serious in-fighting among your teammates. You won't be able to stall or stifle it, but you can ignore it safely for the time being.
● Finances: You and your account balance are both getting your signals from another planet, or so it seems to others. They just can't understand how you can be as successful as you are without getting inside tips from the mother ship. Keeping them in the dark about your processes is fine.
● Love: Be someone's secret (or not-so-secret) admirer. Your creativity's amped up, romance is in the stars and it's time for a few of your hidden talents to be revealed.
● General: It's time to lay all your cards on the table, for better or worse -- and it's going to be for the better. It's time to say goodbye, to a friend, a lover, a toxic relationship or a bad habit. Don't take this farewell lightly. When you get a surprised stare instead of an actual response, don't be upset. They're just not as prepared for this as you are.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Sales and networking are your strong suits right now, so put that smooth talking charm to good use and dazzle the next few customers into total submission.
● Finances: You're feeling too manly for childish games -- or for high heel shoes, for that matter. No matter your gender or inclinations, you are all about getting things done, with all the testosterone you could hope for.
● Love: The details are elusive now, but your larger understanding of the realm of romance is expanding. Don't stress about your current situation; your heart's working on more important things.
● General: Get the show on the road as far as your finances are concerned. Money matters have been problematic lately, but it's all going to clear up soon. In fact, an action you take, over the next few days will do wonders to rectify this situation in the long term. That goes double for yourself, especially if you've been avoiding a certain issue. You'll know exactly what to say and do, so why hesitate?
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Definitely shy away from the impulsive use of cash or credit -- think every purchase through completely first. If you can curtail spending for even one day, do so. It'll make a huge difference to your bottom line.
● Finances: You've postponed things long enough. In fact, you might not be able to crawl out from under the penalties and interest incurred at this point. Don't delay another day. Address the issue now.
● Love: Use your creative side to share a little piece of your heart. Maybe a love note (written on actual paper and sealed with a kiss) is in order instead of another email.
● General: You're far more interested in tending to someone's emotional problems than taking care of business. Of course, those two things may end up being one in the same. If anyone starts complaining -- or worse, whining about your lack of compassion -- tell them you're fed up with the shenanigans and you're adopting a new, tough-love approach. You're a force to be reckoned with.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Avoid the temptation to take care of the easy stuff first and step up to tackle the biggest obstacles pronto. After all, you can handle anything right now.
● Finances: You are being a bit too informal regarding an agreement. Everything should be in writing when money is involved. Even people with the best of intentions need that kind of documentation. Don't be afraid to ask for it.
● Love: Be extra compassionate now. If you've got to let someone down, let them down easy (and without a lot of unnecessary criticism); if someone's got a relationship crisis, be the (patient, nonjudgmental) shoulder to cry on.
● General: Take your time and look around. What's the rush? You're in the mood to rush out and buy something -- something that's not exactly what one might call a minor purchase. It's got to be different, though, something that no one else would want. If you're sure you can afford it, go ahead. Just don't allow yourself to be talked into buying something you don't really need by someone who's skilled at that sort of thing.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You'll see that keeping your clients happy is the best thing you can do. So don't worry so much about facts and figures. Make sure you're being of maximum service to the people who keep you employed.
● Finances: You're ambitious and qualified, not to mention smarter than the average bear, and yet you just can't reach that carrot on a stick. That's the entire point, Pisces. Accept that and move on to something obtainable.
● Love: Your energy's up and you're so in touch with the here and now, it feels electric. Take a new idea around the block, and try a brand-new approach to romance -- a direct one.
