AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Be on your toes today, because you need to be ready to jump in any direction. There are a lot of things going on behind the scenes — many of which could pop out at un-expected (and maybe even inopportune) times. Your flexibility has always been strong, but today it’s your lifesaver. Acting quickly and thinking with your gut can sometimes be a dangerous combination, but today you can feel free to take more risks and roll with it.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): This whole Lone Ranger act must stop — it’s time to integrate yourself back into the lives of the people around you. The ideal opportunity to do this is coming into your life right now, so take ad-vantage of it. Ask for help, ideas and opinions from the people you’ve dis-tanced yourself from. Showing them that you value what they have to say will solidify your relation-ships and encourage the forces around you to help you get back on track. You’ll be headed in the right direction before you know it.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19): As always, it’s im-portant that you succeed right now — but it’s even more important that you avoid putting too much pressure on yourself. Go easy! Pressure, stress, and self-doubt are your biggest enemies right now, and they could cause a bit of a landslide if you’re not careful. The good news is that you already have all the power you need to conquer anything — it’s deep inside of you (whether you believe it or not). When you need it, all you have to do is believe and it will be there.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): You might be going a bit faster than the slowpokes who are on your team right now, but that shouldn’t bother you in the least. People moving at a pace that’s different from yours are the ones who are capable of teaching you the most — and you’re smart enough to understand that. Stop your forward mo-mentum, or at least pause long enough to check in on the people trailing you. Find out what they’re see-ing that is encouraging them to linger so.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Some of your new acquaintances are go-ing to be in your life for quite a long while, so make sure you start things off on the right foot. Even if you have plans for a major change soon, don’t expect much of a change in the cast of characters you’re surrounded by. Getting to know someone is an art form you have mastered — today, spend some time on strengthening a tenuous new connection. It’s as easy as asking questions and listening to the an-swers.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your work or school environment has been interesting (but also a bit challenging) lately, but that changes today. You discover a few new insights on the motivation behind the odd actions of others. There are things you never knew before, things that should clear everything up and things that give you a sneak peak about what could be coming next. This advance information will prepare you for an oppor-tunity you’ve been waiting for.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22): Right now, you need to ensure that the line be-tween your professional and personal lives is clear. Your emotions are strong, and a sad story may moti-vate you to take on an un-wise strategy. You have a wonderful sense of com-passion, but it can set you back more than you real-ize. Being impersonal or objective doesn’t mean the same thing as being un-friendly or rude. You can still be polite and even kind — but try to extricate yourself from anything that could get messy.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Negotiating re-lationships will be easy to-day because no one can argue with the points you’re making. Your ability to combine complex view-points with clear-headed simplicity is unbeatable, and it will help everyone keep the proper perspec-tive. Step up and play peacemaker between war-ring colleagues or friends — you may be the only per-son who can make sure that cooler heads prevail. Suggest that they see things from the other per-son’s point of view.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22): How you react to bizarre comments shows people a lot about who you are and how you think. Today, when you’re chal-lenged and asked to come up with a quick answer, don’t fret — keep your cool and just let your heart tell you what to do. Don’t get caught up in attempting perfection, because you don’t need to come up with the right answer — you just need to have a re-ply that will satisfy the peo-ple who have presented you with this challenge. Go for speed over accuracy.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): After such a long, potent period of produc-tivity, right now you would be wise to slow things down. This is more than just an effort to cool your engines and regroup your energies — it’s a mindset that will enable you to find the subtleties of life and enjoy them. Nuance is something that takes time, but it’s a sophisticated idea that adds depth to your life. So curb your output today — it’s much wiser to be a thinker than a doer right now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): There’s a lot going on in your life right now that your friends and family don’t know about — and they should! Make an effort today to widen your intimacy circle and bring more people into it. This can be easily done with a mass email. Your people may have inspiring words for you — and you may in-spire them to open their lives up a bit more. You hold the missing piece in a puzzle someone you love is working on. Today recon-nect with your loved ones and share yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Look around today, and you’ll find some inspiration. There are peo-ple in your life who have a lot of valuable things to teach you, and they’re ea-ger to move into a mentor-ship position. In fact, the timing may be perfect to reach out and ask for guid-ance. These folks exempli-fy what you want to be, and they’re where you want to be. So why not ask them how to get there? You’ll add your own spice to things today, so don’t wor-ry about becoming a car-bon copy of anyone. Your identity will not suffer.
