AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): The latest revelation from a friend was dramatic, for sure. But was it legitimate? It’s time to do a little sleuthing and dig deeper to find out what the real deal is. It’s not that you are doubting them — it’s just that you are doubting their story. There is a difference. And if you find out that they were stretching the truth or exaggerating their claims, be compassionate about it. You don’t even have to let on that you know the truth, either, if you think that will help them save face.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Are your penny-pinching ways preventing you from having a fulfilling social life? It’s time to loosen up your purse strings just a little bit. Money has no value unless you spend it, so shake loose some of your extra change and treat yourself to a tiny treat today. You can still be wise about how you spend your cash, but you don’t have to cut yourself off from every single spending situation. Being too focused on money is not a good thing. Your financial life must be balanced.


ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

Watch for frustration with your bank account right now. You can get a handle on the stress your money issues are causing, but only if you keep cool. Now is not the time to react with dramatic and panicky changes. Cut back on your budget too much, and you’ll only beat yourself up when you aren’t able to live with such stringent guidelines. You can find a middle ground, making small changes that will make a big difference over time. Do not be impatient about this.


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Just because you don’t agree with someone doesn’t mean that you can’t get along with them. You can even laugh together! If you always opted out of being friends with people who think about life differently than you do, you’d miss out. The back-and-forth debate in this relationship creates an exciting intellectual reward, and that has a valuable place in your life. You have so much more to offer than just your congeniality, and people are just as attracted to your rough edges as they are to your smooth ways.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Get creative in how you handle mundane tasks today, and you will get a lot done. Even if you simply put on one of your favorite CDs while you are washing the dishes, the added stimulation that your right brain receives will keep you smiling and boost your ‘can do’ attitude skyward. You’ll be able to keep a great momentum going throughout the day, without yawning once! It’s a great time to power through errands and finish up old projects that you’ve left half finished.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Today is about taking the time you need to establish things — instead of just trying something for fifteen minutes, you need to delve in and make more of a commitment. This applies to growing relationships, improving your career options, and just entertaining yourself. Don’t just send a flirty email to that person you’re into. Call them up and get a deeper conversation going. Share your philosophy and they will share theirs with you. This will be a good way to spend the day.


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

Simple pleasures hold the greatest satisfaction for you today, so keep close to home and enjoy some quiet time. One great idea might be to have some friends over for a meal. Cooking together could be fun and is likely to get everyone’s creative juices flowing. Your wanderlust kicks in today when someone mentions their upcoming plans for overseas travel. Move forward on planning you next adventure today, and you may stumble across an excellent opportunity.


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Past mistakes or missteps are all water under the bridge — you cannot think of them when you are thinking about what to do next. Looking backward when you’re trying to go forward is a recipe for disaster. So if you’re embarking on any new projects, relationships or work environments today, you have to have an open mind and a strong attitude that anything is possible. Positive thinking will empower you and encourage you to take chances when you might not have before.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

You might think you’ve got all your ducks lined up in a neat row, but today something will come along to toss a wrench into the works. Luckily, you’re in an excellent position to adapt and get past it. Even if you’re asked to pick up the pace considerably, you can turn this time challenge into an opportunity to impress. Streamline your tasks and focus only on the essentials. That way, you’ll be able to avoid distractions and make some speedy progress.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): You are entering a time of great organizational skill, and you are about to take multi-tasking to a whole new level! While you are going to have a very productive day, you will also enjoy a greater amount of self-satisfaction — nothing will make you feel better than getting stuff done, cleaning up messes, and checking things off your lists. Today, there is no amount of chaos you can’t tame, no mystery you can’t solve, and no problem that you can’t fix.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Try this tactic on a person you are dying to get closer to: Be brave, and reveal an embarrassing story from your past! While it might make you feel a little weird to bare your soul to them, it will also show this person that you trust them. Plus, it will be quite a relief to get it off your chest. Your story is a lot less humiliating than you thought it was, and the shared laugh will help you two connect. Letting down your guard with someone is a very intimate act.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): This is the perfect time for you to embrace the art of planning! Okay, it’s not always the most exciting activity, but deep down inside you have the capacity to enjoy the act of planning, and excel in it. Moving forward too quickly in one area today — whether it’s a relationship, financial goal, job prospect or confrontation — is not the wisest thing to do. The idea now is to get all the facts about something and then formulate a plan for moving forward. In the end, you will go farther.
