● General: Excessive? Unwilling to stop at just one of anything? You bet. The sky's the limit for you. You won't be short on company, however. Your personal fire persuades others to come and bask in your glow. Add the stars' charming input, and you'll be downright impossible to refuse... even to a certain person who's recently tried to put some distance between you two.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: If you've ever needed to give a situation your all, now's the time. A competition with a coworker is about to reach a head, and the stakes are very real. You'll need to give it all your effort if you're going to come out ahead.
● Finances: You are pushing yourself like never before. The progress you make today will change your place -- in your financial life, in your social circle, and possibly your place in the world. Be tireless.
● Love: Trying something new -- and encountering some fresh blood while you're at it -- is definitely favored through most of the day. Tonight, though, you should take some time for yourself and get grounded.
● General: Do some investigating into your recent financial ventures, and you may find that someone hasn't been entirely on the up-and-up in the accounts payable department. Does this mean you should cut them out of your life completely? Well, that certainly depends on the gravity of the offense -- and on whether or not they're a repeat offender. But you still might want to cut back their privileges. No TV, no ATM card, no gummy bears, and so on.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: When in doubt, self-promote: No one ever got the job by selling themselves short. There's no question: You're the right person for this assignment. But your boss may not be quite as aware as you are of your obvious qualifications.
● Finances: If you never considered yourself the type to preach to the choir, think again. You're doing it without even realizing it. Just because you've had a bit of financial success doesn't mean you have anything to teach others who have, too.
● Love: An open mind is your heart's best ally now, particularly since you're likely to meet someone with whom you don't agree but can really learn a love lesson from. Listen up and open up.
● General: A very intense situation that comes up at work could lead you to wonder if you should say what you know or just keep quiet -- and isn't that always a dilemma? In this case, since you may be feeling you've kept this particular secret for far too long, think about what might happen once the truth is revealed. The good news is that in the end, the truth always comes out anyway. Your mission is to decide whether you want to be the instrument now.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: If you're getting some good mojo now, ask for a formal evaluation. Everyone's raving about your performance these days -- why not capitalize on it? Turn those compliments into the raise or promotion you've been waiting for.
● Finances: Someone isn't showing all of their cards. That only causes minimal confusion, though, because neither are you. The only real drawback is all the time you waste trying to keep poker faces.
● Love: Partnerships and relationships are in the stars, but so is a bit of confusion. If you're trying to get something started, it may not go according to plan; on the other hand, be glad you've got your independence.
● General: Work has probably been less than easy to concentrate on lately -- the stars are encouraging you to think of far more interesting topics. But now, you can't think of anything you'd rather do than apply the pants to the chair and the nose to the grindstone. Should your family voice their complaints, let them know this is temporary and that you have faith in their ability to boil water.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Patience now will serve you well in the future. You know what you want, but are you jumping the gun? Bide your time until your boss has finished the budget or business plan. Then pounce.
● Finances: Something or someone is knocking on your door, and it's not opportunity. You don't want to answer, much less go out, but you've got to deal with it, like it or not. Don't worry, it won't go as badly as you imagine.
● Love: To be social or to have some private time? That is the question -- and you may feel one way at one moment, the other the next. Keep your plans open-ended and you can change things up at will.
● General: This may be just the start of the fun, but you're ready to dive in -- and that feeling probably started late last night. If you made it through the day and managed to knock a few items off your to-do list, you definitely deserve congratulations. And once it's time to call it a day, no one -- absolutely no one -- should have the nerve to ask you for anything more challenging than your phone number, or a ride (and only if you happen to be going in the same direction).
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Find some common ground and learn how to work together. Everyone will appreciate it. Competition is fair game, but outright rivalry with a coworker is not productive -- in fact, a combative attitude will make you look bad.
● Finances: When you hear some important news, you'll want to act immediately, but you should take a few breaths and wait. Then wait some more. You only have half of what you need to make an informed decision, so be patient.
● Love: Other people may be taking a day of rest, but with the fabulous stuff the stars are still sending your way, you're pretty much on fire. Get out and about and let 'em feel your heat.
● General: Big, messy emotions are on the agenda today, most unlike your meticulous, detail-oriented and choosy self. This could well leave you feeling a bit on the deranged side -- but only if you try to fight it. So don't. Right now, anything goes. Let yourself feel what you're feeling. Your only responsibility is to be as nice as possible while you're letting it all hang out. Deal?
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Assert yourself when it comes to your coworkers. Little requests for assistance will add up to big wastes of time if you let them. You can't lock the door, but you can suggest they take it somewhere else -- this isn't in your job description, after all.
● Finances: You may think you're giving some creative advice but you're really only cutting into someone unnecessarily. That's no fun for anyone on the receiving end. Hold your tongue until it bleeds if you have to. It will pay off.
● Love: Romance refuses to be controlled now, so don't even think about trying. In fact, if you let yourself go, some wonderful stuff could happen now. Forget the expectations and go with the flow.
● General: It's not easy to get you down. In fact, you're better at seeing the bright side of things than almost every other sign. That trait will be running on high now, and there's definitely someone who'll be able to benefit from it. So when the world seems too dark and full of unhappiness for them to bear, it's up to you to inform them that the glass is definitely half-full -- and ready for you to top it off.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Figure out what's really bothering you, then come up with a plan to change it. A vague feeling of dissatisfaction is no reason to jump ship just yet. You may just need a more challenging project or a different role. See what opportunities are available.
● Finances: There are a few psychological dragons you need to slay before you can hope to get anywhere. Remind yourself that past failures are just that -- in the past. Give yourself a new mantra: Your future is success.
● Love: Return phone calls, shop the online personals or hang out and meet people at a cafe during the day, when the stars are sending some romantic energy your way. By this evening, it's more about mellow downtime.
● General: Excessive when it comes to shopping? Well, not usually. But every now and then, you do tend to have your days. This may be one of them. If you're not financially up for it, consider channeling this energy into another direction. After all, if you have to be excessive about something, why not choose your own specialty? Sensuality and closeness, that is. See? Not such a bad choice, is it?
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Some things are best said in person, not over email or via text. Does this conversation call for a face-to-face interaction? Think twice before hitting send -- you never know when a missive might end up being grossly misinterpreted.
● Finances: Even the best of plans is useless if you don't implement it. What are you waiting for? If you need some kind of acknowledgment that your idea is a good one, here is your special communication. Now get a move on.
● Love: Your instinct's shrewd now, especially when it comes to a matter of the heart. Exercise your emotional intelligence and your intuition about people to attain a fuller understanding.
● General: Oh, this is just prime time to be you. The rest of the world is feeling as extravagant as you normally do, just this once. You're feeling lucky, frisky and likely to go overboard in all the categories of fun. Does this mean you'll go totally over the top? It's very likely. There's no time like the present to do it, especially since you can get almost anyone to join in.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Choose your battles and only fight the ones that are really important. Everyone will come out ahead. You may not always agree with where the group is going, but teamwork requires a little compromise.
● Finances: Stay focused on money. It should be the only thing you let yourself think about today -- either how much you need to pay or how much you need to bring in. Don't let anything distract you.
● Love: Get outside! Rain or shine, you'll love gamboling about in the world, whether city or countryside, with a friend or solo. Keep your eyes open as you're rambling around -- it'll do your heart good.
● General: On the one hand, you're feeling just about uncontrollably excessive and lavish and extremely (uncharacteristically) unconcerned with a bill that will inevitably arrive next month. On the other hand, your ordinarily frugal nature is tugging desperately at the back of your mind, just about begging you to try to stop yourself. Forget that. It's the time to play. Why play halfway? Go ahead. Have the fun you're after. All of it.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Make sure this quick fix you've devised doesn't have any hidden pitfalls. Doing the job right is more important than doing it quickly, and sometimes that means doing it the hard way. Patience will see you through.
● Finances: Impressing others feels good but it doesn't pay the bills. You need more than verbal tipping. The only results you'll consider good ones today will be those that involve a decent amount of money.
● Love: Talk about good love karma -- the positive energy you're putting out right about now is coming back to you in record time -- and in duplicate (or maybe triplicate!). Give more, get more!
● General: That higher-up who seems to have it in for you? The one who seems to have you constantly under a microscope? You may be right about them watching you carefully -- but their reasons are probably a lot less devious than you'd imagined. You have a knack for dealing with people, and that's one of the things they've been paying attention to. Why? You'll find out soon -- and it won't be bad when the truth emerges.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You're so far ahead of schedule, you may be able to take off early today. You storm into work with a full head of steam, and nothing can diminish your unstoppable energy. You'll even manage to avoid the Chatty Cathys, and that's really something.
● Finances: You don't have to understand why something is happening to act on it. You can unravel the mystery another day. Today, you have to make decisions as the actions themselves are unraveling. Not doing so means losing money.
● Love: The cosmic energy is expansive through much of the day, meaning you're having all sorts of fresh ideas and you're in perfect form for fresh interactions. By tonight, however, you may just want to rest.
● General: Get out of the office -- or wherever -- as soon as you possibly can. You won't be in the mood to put up with anyone who doesn't see things the way you do, and you will be in the mood, for once, to let them know they're flat-out wrong. That reputation about you being mild-mannered and easy to get around? Let 'em know they're wrong. That's someone else, not you.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You have way too much to do for one person, and you know you won't be able to do it all yourself. Instead of complaining about it, see if you can rope in some coworkers to help you out. You've done them plenty of favors in the past.
● Finances: No one can help you today but you. Don't even bother trying to find someone to pull strings for you. Don't despair, though, because you have what it takes to dig yourself out of the mess you're in, all by yourself.
● Love: Your mind may be occupied with matters other than romance at the moment -- a work issue, perhaps. Set your priorities, and deal with the first thing first so you can then get on to the fun stuff.
