● General: The world is your oyster today, and all you have to do is pick your condiments. Isn't it nice to be sitting at the head of the table for a change? Wrapped up in your own ambitions, however, you could lose sight of what's most important in your life. Make sure your priorities are straight. Don't forget the importance of a balanced meal and some time for relaxation.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You'll be running in a thousand directions at once, thanks to this frenetic new energy. Try to finish one task before you move on to the next, or your coworkers will be forced to clean up after you.
● Finances: You've been so focused on detail after detail after boring, mundane detail that you've lost sight of the point of it all. You'll get a pleasant reminder today. It's nice to experience this kind of wake up call.
● Love: Do something nice for your family. After all, they were the ones to show you how great love and relationships could be. Show them that you're grateful for their guidance and what you've learned from them.
● General: Your strong sense of conviction and your ability to entertain divergent points of view could catapult you into a leadership position. People appreciate your excellent listening skills and the ease with which you quickly grasp their salient points. Always remember the qualities that got you to this pinnacle. Losing sight of them could diminish your effectiveness.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Your words will be subject to misinterpretation today, so make sure you cross all your T's and dot those I's. If you have to put everything in writing, so be it. Don't risk your job for a misconstrued missive.
● Finances: It's time to put some fun back into the daily grind. There are plenty of ways to do it -- and if you don't come up with any ideas on your own, life will drop a few in your lap. Your good time won't cost you a thing.
● Love: Extend your charisma to the world and you'll have many suitors eager to enjoy your charms. While you normally operate at a much more discreet level, that will just hold you back now. Live out loud.
● General: You may be somewhat prickly today if your plans do not go exactly as you expect. Giving in to anger or defeatism will do nothing to solve the problem. It's time for a little detective work, Sherlock. Someone or something could be thwarting your efforts. Determining the source of the friction is the first step in resolution and in reestablishing your peace of mind.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Something you thought had been resolved will raise its ugly head again. Focus on nothing else until you've reached a solution that leaves everyone, most of all you, satisfied.
● Finances: Bills are piling up. It's not that you can't pay them; it's that you haven't budgeted the time to attend to them. Think of them as more than just pesky details and deal with them today.
● Love: A chance meeting turns into one hot romantic opportunity, but you have to be ready, willing and able to take advantage of it. Leave the house wearing your snazziest outfit. Be alert and open-minded.
● General: These obstacles may seem insurmountable, but you do not have to let them stand in your way. If you think through your options carefully, you should be able to maneuver around, over or under any hurdle, especially with all the resources you have at hand. Think of yourself as an Olympic track star, and push resolutely toward the finish line. Victory will be sweet.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Prepare for an intense and productive brainstorming session today. For once, everyone will be on the same page. This may be just the breakthrough you've been waiting for.
● Finances: It's the smaller things in life that really make you feel good today. Money doesn't hurt, of course, but little things like getting your message across the first time are what make you smile, with or without the clink of change.
● Love: This person has rejected you in the past, but suddenly he or she comes back into your life. Should you extend the olive branch? Sure -- but you don't have to risk your heart again, especially if your gut says not to.
● General: Just because you know exactly what you want doesn't mean that everyone else is going to be panting to give it to you. Getting ahead has just as much to do with taking care of those around you as it does with taking care of yourself. When you feel your ego rearing up, take a deep breath and try to think from another's perspective. If the exercise makes you feel a little dizzy, you're probably not doing it enough.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Today, you're in complete control. Coworkers will take your suggestions to heart, and you may be surprised at how quickly others fall in line behind a new proposal. Keep kicking butt!
● Finances: You're constantly reassessing your financial situation, so you don't need to be told to be sure you have the right strategy. But even with the best of intentions, you can only see things the way you always have. Do something drastic to open your eyes.
● Love: That romantic date you've been planning? All astral signs point to go. The more extravagant and whimsical the plans, the better. You truly outdo yourself when you're thinking of how to make someone else happy.
● General: It's easy to pick apart another's inspiration, but a real leader can build constructively on just about any framework without tearing it down first. Are you up to the challenge? If you are pleased to be the object of someone's flirtatious attention, returning the sultry glances could lead to a most pleasant evening. An excellent dinner and lively conversation may be just the appetizers.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Stay out of the drama, no matter what. You'll gain nothing by picking sides. In fact, you'll be seen as an untrustworthy soul. Stay in everyone's good graces with a renewed attitude.
● Finances: You usually need to achieve big things to have a great day but today all you have to do is stretch and get out of bed. No matter what goes wrong or how much money you lose, nothing can shake your good feeling. It will prove to be on the money when it comes down to the bottom line.
● Love: Speaking up is encouraged by the current celestial energies. Deliver your message and don't worry about what the response might be from your potential beloved. After all, the truth is more important.
● General: Your irritation threshold is definitely lower today than usual, but you're being hardest on yourself. Perhaps old memories are constricting your heart. Maybe past failures are haunting your mind. Banishing these negative influences will take a supreme act of will, and only you can do it. You know what they say about spilled milk. There's a lot of wisdom in those words.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You're not asking for anything unreasonable here, so don't back down until you have exactly what you want. Whether it's a raise, a better contract or an office with a view, persistence pays off.
● Finances: You're picking up on everything and none of it will go to waste. You are as meticulous with adding up the clues you're amassing as you are with balancing your checkbook. You can't ignore the picture it's painting for you.
● Love: After a series of missed opportunities and romantic trials, you're beginning to see the light. You're giddy, effervescent -- floating on air. This is almost like being in love. Let yourself enjoy every moment of it.
● General: You've been thinking about making this life change for quite a while. Now it's time to stop rationalizing and start doing. You have the strength of will to overcome a bad habit and the resolution to set off in a new direction. Procrastination is a thing of the past. Action and decisiveness are your new operative descriptors. Take this newfound determination and use it to your advantage.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Today is a time for many things, but it's definitely no time to cut corners. Do everything exactly by the book, and you'll be grateful you put in the extra effort when the dividends start rolling in.
● Finances: How you became successful is one of your little secrets, and you like it that way. It makes you feel connected to the universe in your own, unique way. Don't let anyone weasel their way into your confidence -- or your pockets.
● Love: All that glitters may be mighty attractive at first, but someone who really resonates with you will strike a deeper, more profound note. Go ahead and have fun, but dare to hold out for the real thing.
● General: Difficult financial questions are likely to crop up today and make you sit up and think. Your immediate reaction will be to cut back drastically and resolve to forego even some of your most cherished indulgences. But a long-term solution and a workable way out of this dilemma require a more balanced approach. Frugality and fun do not have to be mutually exclusive.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You have the leadership skills to keep things moving forward, so when things get crusty early this quarter, stay at your post and steer the ship. You'll lose the weak ones, but isn't that what you want anyway?
● Finances: Being your own boss is the usual day dream, but today the urge is even stronger than ever. Don't let that energy push you into the ground like a corkscrew. Use it to break free and achieve freedom.
● Love: Your playful energy gets you lots of attention from several delightful parties, but the stars recommend that you concentrate that flirtatious spirit on one prospect. One-on-one dates are highly favored.
● General: Creature comforts are particularly satisfying, and you're in just the mood to appreciate them. But in the mood you're in, just about everything pleases you. As an added bonus, it seems as if others are bending over backwards trying to make things even better than they are. Examine your situation carefully. These moments are what life is all about.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Today is filled with opportunities to make fresh starts. Start with your organizational system. Take advantage of today to clean out your cabinets and clear off your desk. You won't regret it.
● Finances: If a start-up business has been on your mind, it's a good day to start looking into the details. There's no reason to keep this on the back burner. Once you do a bit of research, you'll have a better idea just how to make this daydream a reality.
● Love: Expand your loving heart. It's time to focus on yourself rather than the search for a new love interest. You're so quick to accept the best and worst in others. Why not do the same for yourself?
● General: Look for outside reasons if you want, but there's really only one reason you're so frustrated, and you know exactly what it is. Until you figure out a way to overcome your slapdash approach and your propensity to veer off on tangents, you simply will not have much to show for your efforts. It's easy to resist self-discipline, but if you want to break this habit, you have to start somewhere. It might as well be now.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Don't complain about your job situation. Be grateful you have a paycheck coming in -- put off personal concerns until later.
● Finances: Be especially cautious about signing on the dotted line. Even a gentleman's handshake could land you in trouble. To play it safe, don't make business deals of any kind today. Dealing with others is just too treacherous.
● Love: Dating has gotten to your self-confidence lately. When you look in the mirror, all you see are a million supposed flaws. However, the reality is very, very different. Acknowledge how beautiful you are.
● General: Different circumstances call for different approaches. The trick is to hit the right combination. There might be times today when you need to be in control and times when you simply need to let go and allow others to run with the ball. Even with others calling the plays, you can be very effective from the sidelines. In fact, you may enjoy being out of the spotlight.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Today will present a great time to score points with management. Pick up a few extra duties, and you'll remain on their radar. A leadership role could be just around the corner.
● Finances: It's time to take a long, hard look at your relationships. Are you always the one helping others? If so, it's time for them to reciprocate for a change. And if you're always whining for help, buck up and be of service to someone else. These relationships are a reflection of your relationship to money.
● Love: This individual might be too high-maintenance for any kind of relationship, even a casual one. Their initial charm wears off after one too many episodes of high-drama. Keep it simple and you'll be happier.
