● General: You're right in the middle of the madness, and you couldn't be happier. When the stars are on your side, you love being the center of attention and it shows. You want to accomplish lots of goals for yourself, but you're also willing to do a favor for someone else who really needs a hand. If you can affect just one person and make a positive change, however small, you'll go to bed happy.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Don't lose focus today, even in the face of all this crazy buzz. An unexpected obstacle may turn out to be a significant hazard, and you'll have to devote your full attention to it before moving on.
● Finances: Dealing with a certain someone takes more patience than you have today. They can be easily distracted with only a small amount of money. It's worth the investment.
● Love: The more random your activities are now, the better. Why not head out into the world with no plan other than to be spontaneous and keep your eyes peeled? The world's yours to enjoy and explore.
● General: Take a break from your regular routine and be of service to someone else who needs a helping hand. You've been paying so much attention to your own little world that you may have completely ignored someone else's signals and requests. Even though you're not in the mood to move quickly, you can still make an impact. You have to be willing to take that very first step, but you can make a difference.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Whether the schedule calls for it or not, it's time for a quick team meeting. The upcoming events have gone to some peoples' heads, and their lack of concentration is ruining it for the whole group. Now is the perfect time to air those beefs.
● Finances: You're preparing for only the best. That's a good attitude to have, but don't let a financial proposition sweep you off your feet. The romance of it all could cloud your better judgment.
● Love: Even if you're sweet on someone, that doesn't mean you should stop shopping around. Keep your eyes and your options open now -- when it comes to crushes, the more, the merrier.
● General: Your ideas are easily turned into actions today. It doesn't take very much effort to make a small change, and you have more than enough initiative to make at least one of the things on your wish list come to fruition. Your friends and coworkers can be of great help to you right now, especially the ones who may be connected to important people. Don't be afraid to network and use every resource available to you -- after all, do you think that your competition would hesitate if they were in your position? Not a chance.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Celebration cheer is sometimes just a superficial frame of mind. Misunderstandings will be hard to avoid for the time being so be careful with informal agreements. Even hard contracts might be a little softer than they appear.
● Finances: You're gobbling up investments without putting much thought into it. Even penny stocks eventually add up to something; after all, that's the whole point. Force yourself to slow down.
● Love: A group outing lifts your spirits, and if you organize it, it's bound to be a ton of fun. Get your favorite people together and make a meal, play a game or take a mini-road trip. The laundry can wait!
● General: There's absolutely nothing wrong with singing your own praises today, especially if you have the right audience. Selling yourself is all part of the game you're playing, and there's really nothing to try and hide. The people closest to you know that a little razzle-dazzle is necessary every now and then, and they're sure to be understanding when they find out why you're putting on this little charade. When you're trying to get ahead, almost anything is permissible -- as long as it's not illegal.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You'll feel great all day, but you might have a hard time maintaining your focus. See if you can direct your energy toward customer interaction or other nonlinear pursuits. It'll help your brain see things in a different light.
● Finances: You're torn between the horizon and the home front. You'd love to go off on a financial adventure but you know you have to play it safe, for the sake of family or other obligations. Sigh.
● Love: Try to put the brakes on someplace between your thoughts and your mouth, particularly when it comes to matters of the heart. It's not that you shouldn't say how you're feeling -- just that timing is everything.
● General: Sure you have strong opinions, but that doesn't mean you aren't willing to listen at least to the voice of reason. No matter who you're talking to or what kind of situation you find yourself in, you're always up for hearing the other side of the story. Your open-mindedness may make you seem too malleable to some people, but you're also bound to seem worldly and intelligent in the eyes to others -- not that you're worried about what anyone else thinks, anyway.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: As different opinions on how to deal with finances arise, shared money problems may become burdensome. Try to stall until everyone is on the same page or until the higher-ups can intervene. This may be too big to deal with on your own.
● Finances: Being stubborn isn't often good for your career but today you'll dig in your heels and win more than points for it. Don't let anyone talk you out of your position. You know there is a right and a wrong here, and you're in the right.
● Love: You're never cuter than you are when you're excited about something -- everyone loves to see a lion who's frisky like a kitten. Find something that gets the ol' heart pounding -- a new activity, hang out or big idea.
● General: You may get offers from people who want to help, but you'll work best on your own right now. Set up your office or your workspace away from outside distractions so that you can concentrate on the task at hand. After all, the minutes are counting down and you're reading to get this party started! Normally you don't have a problem sharing the workload or the spotlight, but for now, you're determined to fly solo.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You have ideas about how things should be done, but so do your peers, and they'll take just about any critique the wrong way right now, so it's best to hold on to remarks until later when they'll be better received.
● Finances: Make sure your philosophy of life and your actual way of living line up. A bit of a divergence is normal, but being far off the mark hurts you where it counts -- and that's not in your bank account.
● Love: You're even more purposeful than usual, even in the love department, and anyone who gets in your way had better look out. Force yourself to add in a dose of patience -- you might need it.
● General: An important relationship needs some extra TLC right now, and it's in your best interests to drop whatever you're doing and tend to it. If anything, it'll make the days more bearable. Your friend, partner or family member isn't being unreasonable in their demands, and if you think they are, you might not be seeing the situation for what it truly is. Try not to be defensive -- and don't take constructive criticism as a personal attack.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You're too busy to deal with the little things that keep cropping up but try at least to acknowledge them and get them on your radar. Otherwise, these issues could overwhelm you when you face them afterward.
● Finances: When money is involved, things can get ugly. You and a close colleague or partner need some help hashing out a problem. Call in someone neutral but be sure to abide by their decision.
● Love: Even singletons have to deal with relationship issues. Maybe something from the past needs to be laid to rest, or perhaps a friend's partnership is somehow problematic. Find a way to move forward.
● General: Your health and well-being should be your top priority, especially with all this indulgence going on. This is the time to get back into a regular exercise routine, watch what you eat, make sure you schedule and keep routine appointments and take your vitamins. It might seem like a lot of work, but aren't you worth it? You might need some extra motivation, so don't hesitate to ask someone close.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Clients and bosses are mesmerized by your work ethic, and with a little effort on your part, you can woo them and wow them with displays of creative thinking. You know just what they need to see, so make it happen.
● Finances: To you, life is a game, but to someone else it's a contest to the death. You can only get dragged into their mind set if you let yourself. Keep your temper in check but let your most competitive side out with a roar.
● Love: Trying to further your own personal romantic agenda is less important now than cultivating good overall love karma. Compliment a stranger, help out a friend and generally make nice with the world.
● General: Forget about work -- it's time to play. Because baby, life is for your enjoyment! Of course, some responsibilities you probably can't get out of, but there's no reason you can't have fun while you're at it. Life is too short to be miserable, and if you really think about it, you have very little to be upset about right now! Make every minute count and don't forget to laugh and smile.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: The day begins slowly and finishes slowly. You're a little off your game, but everyone is so consumed by that upcoming event, only the most hypervigilant will notice something's amiss as far as you're concerned.
● Finances: You're an idea person. You only want to look at the big picture, especially when it includes your own success. That's an immature quality that you'll have to set aside today, as you focus on the dull details that make up reality.
● Love: Expanding your worldview does your heart a world of good, so look for activities that challenge and excite your mind. Games, art, learning something new -- it all increases your sense of inspiration.
● General: You may have to face the fact that all good things must come to an end, but you don't have to let these endings ruin your day. Use change as a chance to transform and grow rather than worry about what you're going to miss. This is a good opportunity to get out of a rut and move onto something bigger and better. You may feel uprooted for a while, but eventually, you'll come to love your newfound freedom.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Use your intuition to guide you in exactly the right way today. While all your rivals are running around in full-on freak-out mode, you can sit back coolly and put it all together. Their hot heads couldn't burn you if you were a Yule log.
● Finances: You're nothing if not thorough. You're so conscientious that you'll need to be reminded to give yourself a break every now and then. If there's no one around to do it for you, then force yourself to relax. It's for your own good.
● Love: Your serious sense of responsibility may have your day's schedule all full -- and you a wee bit stressed out. While you're multitasking, make some personal recharging and maintenance a top priority too.
● General: You're utterly amazed at almost everything you see. Colors and shapes seem different than they ever have before, and you have a unique perspective on everyday things like people, buildings and every other object under the sun. This season has a way of doing that to people. Write down everything you're thinking, hearing and experiencing. This could turn out to be important for a very important project -- or it could just serve as a really cool memory to look back on.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Right now you need to rein it in and save up big. It's up to you to control costs, even if finances aren't part of your job description. Spending may have been fun and even vital for a while, but now it's time to back off and use up what you already have.
● Finances: If you don't want to end up like one of your old relatives, then you'd better make some changes now. That distant future isn't as distant as you imagine. Preparing for your future should begin today.
● Love: The advances you can make now in your personal love philosophy are pretty amazing, so engage on a higher level and put some thought into it. Bouncing ideas off a smart friend or crush wouldn't hurt.
● General: Shake off those doldrums. The sooner you get up and face the day full on, the more accomplished you'll feel. Take care of the most pressing things first and foremost. This is one of those times when daydreaming can really work to your advantage. The more you can manage to take your mind off the inevitable, the easier it will be to get through the tougher moments. You may have to go through this alone, but if someone offers you their hand, by all means, take it.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Stop, drop whatever you're working on and look around -- check in with your immediate surroundings. Someone close is flailing and needs your assistance. This won't take much time and the rewards, especially this time of year, will be great!
● Finances: No matter how harsh things get, you can still come up with a way to make a beautiful refuge for yourself. Making a nice dinner, writing or reading a bit of poetry, or simply finding a peaceful place to call your own are all more valuable than a day at the spa.
● Love: Fact is indeed stranger than fiction (especially when it comes to the mysteries of love), and right now it may be hard even to disentangle the two. Think of it as a romantic puzzle for you to solve.
