AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Is someone casting a spell over you? Be careful not to let the mystical charms of someone cute fog your mind and keep you from having a realistic view of who they are as a person. Listen to your common sense, not to your heart. Find out what other mutual friends think about this person — they will splash some cold water in your infatuated face, but your affection probably won’t diminish one bit. This means that your connection could be built on real things after all.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Are you expecting major transformations to happen overnight? It’s time to face the fact that it’s going to take longer than you thought. Whether you are looking for changes in yourself or in someone else, you have to be more patient and realistic about how quickly things can happen. What used to be simple isn’t so simple any more — there are more people involved, and more feelings that could get hurt. Let things unfold the way they will, and the results will be better.


ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

When you are showered with compliments today (and you will be), try to accept them all graciously. Don’t go for false modesty, it simply does not become you. Be grateful for the fact that the people around you have the sense to see how wonderful you are, and thank them for it! You have to get used to people telling you how great you are, because it’s only going to happen more and more often as the days go by. You might as well start getting used to it today.


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): You won’t have a full understanding of the true amount of work you have to do today until later in the afternoon, when social time is over and you’re back to spending some time by yourself. This sudden realization of the size of the pile of work in front of you could throw a lesser person into a panic, but not you! The strong warrior inside of you knows that you can do this, and you can do it well! No task is too tough for you, and no deadline is too soon.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There will be some more money coming into your life today, but it could create misunderstandings if you’re not careful. If you and a friend are going out together, resist the urge to treat them to dinner. It’s wonderful that you want to be generous with them, but it might come off to them like you’re showing off. So hold off and be sensitive to the fact that money might be a big issue for them right now. You can show your affection in another way.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Today, if you get the feeling that something is being kept from you, you’re right. Your usually strong intuition is stronger than ever now, and it’s picking up on some seriously mysterious vibes. There is a secret being shared with everyone but you, it seems. But whatever’s going on behind closed doors is only good news for you, so don’t get too paranoid that things are going to change for the worse. On the contrary, things are about to get really good.


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

There will be a huge spike in your creative writing skills today, and you are in the perfect frame of mind to make the most of it! It will be a breeze for you to add some rhymes and witty stuff to your emails, text messages and voice mails today. You’ll entertain your friends and coworkers in a way that only you can, and you might even impress a few people while you’re doing it. Conveying your ideas in a memorable way will separate you from the average Joe, and get you more attention.


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): You have the wonderful gift of fresh perspective today, so take another look at the problems you’ve been having in your life, lately. Chances are, they will look nowhere near as gigantic as they looked yesterday. In fact, most of them are fairly simple to solve — and one of them you can outright give to someone else to deal with. Go on — they won’t mind taking something off of your plate. They’ll love the opportunity to help you and show you how organized they can be.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

Just like you shouldn’t get on a scale every day when you’re on a diet, you can’t constantly stare at the finish line if you want to win the race. You have to think about the here and now, not the there and later. Get confident about the fact that you are making progress — even if you’re not getting any outside reinforcement of that fact. You must keep on keeping on, and not make the mistake of putting your mind to anything but the task at hand.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): You could benefit from more exercise today. But the exercise you really need doesn’t revolve around working out and getting sweaty — it revolves around using your imagination and making something unique with it. Move your creative muscles as often as you can today, in as many ways as you can. When you email someone, add a rhyme or find an inspirational saying to add to your signature. When you’re leaving a voice mail, why not do so in a song? It doesn’t take much to add more fun to life.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): What’s your hurry? The upcoming event you’re so excited about isn’t going anywhere — and trying to speed up your life to get there quicker is not only impossible, it’s a total waste of energy. Besides, you could start ticking people off by having your mind so out of the moment and into the future. Embrace what’s going on today and try to get enthusiastic about it. After five minutes of trying to not think about what’s coming down on the horizon, you will succeed.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): You can’t let yourself take anything too seriously today. Even if you’re taking a big exam, going on an important job interview, or trying to charm a first date, you have to remember to keep it loose and relaxed! If you want to start feeling good (and get someone else to feel good), you have to just start smiling. Focusing on what you don’t have instead of enjoying what you do have is one way to guarantee that you won’t be as happy as you could be.
