AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): At the beginning of the day, if you suspect that something exciting is cooking with some of the people around you, you’re probably right. Corner your best connection in the group as early as you can and try to get some insider information. You might not get the whole story right away, but you have enough mental agility right now to be able to separate truth from fiction. Take your conclusions to an objective third party and get the advice you need.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): You don’t need to have a dramatic moment in order to make some necessary changes in your life. Epiphanies can be caused by quiet moments just as often as loud ones. Today, a major turn-ing point will come in the form of a minor exchange between you and an old friend. Your answer or reaction will demonstrate how much growth you have achieved over the years. Your friend may not like what he or she hears from you, but there are new terms in your relationship — terms you are setting.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19): Even though you may have a million things going on, you will find a way to put it all on hold when your friends need you today. Helping other people will help you — seeing things from the perspective of someone who is in turmoil will help you take stock of what is going on in your life, too. This is a day of exchanging ideas in a safe, open environment. By the end of the day, the pace around you will match your mood: contemplative and quiet.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Things are improving in your work or school life, in part because you are taking a bigger initiative and letting your curiosity lead you into new directions. You’re not taking no for an answer, nor should you. In conversations today, soak up the empty spaces with more questions — five minutes of inquisition can uncover a lifetime of new directions to explore. The outdoors will hold a strong appeal for you — the dramatic weather serves to relax your mind and invigorate your energy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have an incredible energy welling up inside of you, and it might just explode today. To make the best use of all your enthusiasm, try to dive into projects or adventures that involve a lot of other people — the more diverse, the better. You are especially well tuned in to the rhythms of other cultures and beliefs, and there are important insights you are ready to download. This is a day of celebration, emancipation, and education.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): If things are still not going smoothly for you and someone in your life today, do not give up hope. This is not a sure sign that the end is near — it’s just a bump in what is sure to be a long road. To cheer yourself up, keep yourself distracted. Seek out the types of activities you enjoy the most — sports, cooking or even an engrossing movie could be a perfect way to get you out of your head for a while so you can stop worrying so much.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22): The key to getting through a rough patch in a long-standing friendship isn’t so hard to figure out. As long as you two can communicate honestly and respect each other enough to listen without judgment, things will be fine. It’s difficult to understand this friend’s behavior and motives sometimes — and at a certain point, you simply have to stop trying. Accept the fact that he or she is different from you in many ways. Don’t waste time on meaningless minutiae; this relationship is soul-deep.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): If you want to make a connection with someone, what are you waiting for? The person you have your eyes on isn’t going to stick around forever — it is time you stepped up and said hello. Sure it would certainly be nice if this person made the first move, but that isn’t the reality right now. If you want something to start, you will have to be the one to start it. Do not prepare a big speech or script. Just go with the flow and let things unfold naturally.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22): There is no reason to commit yourself to one goal right now! When it comes to life missions, you get to be as promiscuous as you want. Whatever you are looking for in life can change from day to day (heck, given the spontaneous mood you’ve been in lately, it could change from minute to minute), so consider shifting your current commitments. It’s easier than you think, and it will make you feel free. Changing your mind is not a bad thing.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): You have one particular habit that, as fun as it is, may be holding you back from moving forward right now. Even if it doesn’t seem possible to live your life without it, you should at least give it a try today. You don’t have to make huge declarations about whether or not you are going to break a habit — just give life without it a try for a while. Transitioning into a healthier, happier you takes the courage to take risks.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Just when you thought a relationship was over and done with, today it will get a huge injection of new energy! Get ready for a new beginning — complete with all the excitement, enthusiasm, and adorable awkwardness it had the first time around. This is your chance to do things over again, with a lot more honesty and a lot more confidence. People seldom get second chances in life, so you should greet this opportunity with your typical gratitude and grace.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Right now your career doesn’t just require that you put in time and energy while you’re actually at work. You have to go above and beyond to truly succeed in the position you’re in. You might not realize the level of responsibility you’ve been given, but a lot of people have a lot of faith in you. To ensure that you don’t disappoint yourself or anyone else, put in a little bit of extra effort and go the extra mile.
