● General: Who's in control here -- you, or someone further up the chain of command? Be honest with yourself and use your wisdom rather than your ego when going about your duties. Share your responsibilities and you'll get the added benefit of some fun companionship as well as easing your load. Right now, charm will serve you better than toughness. As you relax and pay attention to the people around you, the truth of a situation will become clear.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You, of anyone, know exactly how to get potential clients precisely where you want them. Remember, a deal or partnership isn't final until you sign on the dotted line. Kill them with kindness and they'll be in your pocket, no sweat!
● Finances: You're usually more interested in what's going on around you, but today your own inner workings are fascinating you. You won't find a pot of gold there, but being introverted is a good thing every now and again, as long as you don't make a habit of it.
● Love: Issues concerning partnerships versus independence may be arising for you now, and it may well be a grass-is-greener situation. Concentrate on appreciating the good aspects of what you've got.
● General: Hard work yields pleasing results and proves that momentum is the key to your success. Once you get going, you may find yourself exceeding expectations long before you're ready to quit. This is a great time to start a new health program or an art project. Once you get underway, people around you are bound to take notice. Share your new plans with friends or family; they will provide you with useful help and suggestions. Take the time to rest up and build your enthusiasm, then don't let anything stop you!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Customers are paying you compliments, and the people in power are finally starting to get the message. Don't sell yourself short. You've put in lots of time, effort and sacrifice to reach this level. Remember, skill, not luck, has taken you this far.
● Finances: You're feeling especially sensitive today. That can be a good thing if you know how to handle it right. Focus on only productive thoughts and feelings and not the ones that hobble you.
● Love: A little change in your day-to-day opens up a big window of opportunity -- one that could have a rather romantic view. Mix in a little excitement in one way or another and see what results.
● General: Duty calls repeatedly today, while you just want to answer the siren song of fun and games. Your day improves when you find a playmate who shares your desire to escape. The secret to success is to follow your impulses creatively: Do a routine chore slightly differently, or wear something special to make your day perk up. A little rebellion is a good thing. You are in charge of entertaining yourself. Luckily, you're really good at it.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Your poker face is getting quite a workout these days. Think diplomacy, lots of it. Don't lose your cool. Demands and ultimatums will not get you what you want. You know how important this deal is, but that's of no consequence to your clients.
● Finances: It takes more than wanting to help to be useful to others. You have a unique way of being of service to others that you are overlooking. It could be a win-win situation if you play it just right.
● Love: You're a person of both intellect and action, able to assess a situation in a snap, then do (or say) exactly the right thing. It's great for accomplishing things at work -- and even better for the realm of romance.
● General: Be on the lookout for obstacles in business and romantic partnerships. Excess activity on oft-traveled ground stirs up many issues. Be cautious about starting something new -- you may want to wait until people feel as if they're back on their feet. Be careful in dealings with your colleagues and loved ones, and take some time off if feelings run high. Try to figure out your own priorities and be understanding of the needs of others. Remember to keep calm in negotiations and do not be afraid of compromise; it may be the best way for everyone to come out a winner.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Budgetary considerations may force you to choose between two items that both seem mission critical. But if you're honest, you'll know one supersedes the other. Get the details off your plate now and seek clarity. This is what leadership is all about.
● Finances: Your usual indecisiveness works in your favor today. When you're not sure, you hesitate but you don't get lost. You wait and see if a better path to your destination opens up. And it does.
● Love: The road of love is seldom smooth, and right about now, you could hit some stuff that's darn bumpy. Engage your emotional four-wheel drive and keep going -- it'll even out up ahead.
● General: It's a great time to meet and impress new people. You radiate confidence, attracting potential partners like flies to honey. In love and art, you are nearly unstoppable. Use your magic touch to bargain for something you've been wanting on or to ask a question you've been avoiding. Even though everyone pays attention to you, don't overextend yourself. You could say anything right now and people would believe you, but it might help if you mean it.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Are the numbers realistic? Maybe it's time to reassess your budget for this project or endeavor. Make sure you have all your line items in order so unpleasant surprises don't crop up. You'll have better odds of getting what you want if you can justify every expense.
● Finances: Don't take anything at face value. You don't have to be surrounded by serious plotters or thieves to play it safe. Being cautious is always smart, so look at issues deeply before making a move.
● Love: Maybe they're sweet and meek and adorable, or maybe they're bold and powerful and amazing -- you can make a connection with someone of almost any ilk now. Both opposites and like-minded spirits attract.
● General: Have you heard the saying, 'To make money, you have to spend money'? If you want to get in the game, you must come up with the admission fee. At least this money will be helping you toward a greater goal. Buy the things you need to get what you want or to send you where you want to go. Your purchases will be noted, and your investments will have far-reaching effects on those around you. Be optimistic, but don't throw common sense out the window.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You can see cracks and inconsistencies where others are blind. That's why your ability to read between the lines of fine print is invaluable now. Nothing goes out without your signature -- this is the way things are supposed to operate.
● Finances: You're usually not particularly curious about what goes on behind the curtain; all that really interests you is the return on your dollar. But your intellect suddenly needs to be satisfied when it comes to a certain company or business partner. Don't settle for anything less than full disclosure.
● Love: Look at it this way: The stars say that if you were coupled up right now, you'd be in some intense negotiations (and be experiencing some setbacks). Instead, you get to move forward and think about what you really want.
● General: You begin to live your dreams. What others only imagine, you dare to do. The usual barriers in business and romance open for you like swinging doors. In fact, mixing business with pleasure may be a very real possibility. Throughout the day you have the delicious feeling that approving eyes are watching every move you make. Enjoy the attention while it lasts! Tonight is the perfect time to impress someone who has been aloof in the past.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: A workplace dispute has gone down and the dust is settling. As the scores come in, it's obvious you're the winner. And everyone knows it. Don't push this one too hard -- be patient, and you'll come out on the triumphant side of this battle.
● Finances: Things need to change, from the surface right on down to the core. Don't think you've done your job just by applying a bit of makeup to the situation. Wherever money is concerned, your business runs deep.
● Love: A new admirer (or two!) is drawn to you now, and they may or may not be secret about it. Whether or not it's a perfect fit, the attention sure is nice -- and you'll handle it with your usual aplomb.
● General: Your train of smooth and steady progress gets derailed by indecision. It may be difficult to make a choice when you consider how much is at stake. Not to worry: You have time to find the answer. Reassess the situation on your own, since advice from others may only cloud the situation. Only you have the patience and understanding to figure out what you need. Try taking walks alone or spending time at home. Some solitary thinking will help make your decision easier.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Factual mistakes and errors of judgment you make now could come back to haunt you later. There's a time to be cutthroat with inner-office competition, and there's a time to bring coworkers into the fold. Make sure you know which is which.
● Finances: You're waiting patiently for your energy to return. That's smart. Your rebirth is right around the corner. In fact, you can begin to feel its first stirrings. Anything you do now will only be a waste of money, so continue lying low.
● Love: If you're in a social situation, you're probably the mysterious, sultry one who's barely saying a word -- and who's maybe off in their own little world. Just don't miss it if someone's trying to get your attention.
● General: You will receive a delightful complication via an archer named Cupid. New romances blossom or old ones heat up again -- or maybe both. Someone special finds you irresistible. With this new excitement may come hard decisions. Be honest and kind about what you want and what you are feeling, and you will be rewarded. Clear communication will bring serious passion into your life. A hot evening lies in wait.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Bandwagons are for followers, not leaders -- caution is the wisest option now. This latest trend may be short-lived, so give it time before you jump on board. If you act too fast, you may spend needless resources pursuing a phantom craze.
● Finances: Don't let yourself off the hook just because you're not in the mood. Making money is always a must, like it or not. Figure out why you suddenly don't want to make the effort, then fix the problem.
● Love: When's the last time you literally wished upon a star? Getting specific about your romantic hopes can't hurt now -- in fact, if you keep an open mind about what form they'll take, it's a stellar idea.
● General: It's in your best interest to finish old business before starting anew. Accept help as it is offered and use it as needed. Sharing the reward is a small price to pay for closure. Compromise will bring much-needed peace and harmony into your life. Conflicts with those in authority may leave you unsatisfied, but you can find balance through staying focused on what you need. Getting it done is more important than getting all the glory.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Envy is a destructive force in your career growth -- this is no time to foster a professional rivalry. Join forces with this person, and you'll experience no limits to what you can accomplish. This colleague's skill set will prove surprisingly complementary to yours.
● Finances: You've asked friends for advice and gone to trusted advisors. When it comes down to it, though, you're the one who will be living with the results of your decision. You have all the information you need to decide.
● Love: Fresh starts and fresh faces are favored now, so why not hang out at a cafe and strike up a conversation with someone cute? Alternately, you could check out some new prospects online.
● General: Get intellectual and explore the world -- you'll find it rewarding. Take some time out and get to know a new acquaintance, culture or start a new course. Figuring out what makes other people tick gives you unexpected insight about your own situations. You are very open to new information and ideas, so let your curiosity be your guide. By taking in many new things, you may discover how much you have to give.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You truly grasp the importance of this endeavor -- all you have to do is make a compelling case. Communication skills will make all the difference when you're pitching something with budgetary or financial implications.
● Finances: Your ambition has cooled. That's because you're beginning to see through what motivates you. You need something more meaningful than merely making money to inspire you these days. Look for ways to feel -- and be -- useful.
● Love: You may have some personal things going on at the moment, but don't bury your head in the sand. The situation will work out, and meanwhile, making an effort to connect with others will help.
● General: You understand the nature of secrets, even when they're difficult and inconvenient. If someone shares something with you, don't worry about giving advice -- just listen. Be careful about your newfound knowledge -- in this case, discretion is definitely the better part of valor. Keeping the faith will put someone important in your debt. Your integrity will open the door to more confessions -- if you want them, that is.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: An uncomfortable situation at work is about to turn around, with any luck, in your favor. Perseverance is critical if you're going to get through this challenge unscathed. Keep your ear to the ground for new opportunities just in case things don't work out.
● Finances: You don't like being treated like a doormat. You'd be tempted to toss the whole arrangement out if it didn't mean throwing the baby into shark infested waters. It may be only a metaphor but the mere thought makes you feel like you're riding the swells of choppy seas. Stick with it.
● Love: A proactive approach works wonders when it comes to the love department now. How, exactly, can you be proactive regarding the mysteries of romance? Decide what you're looking for -- and find some new ways to seek it.
