AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Don’t be surprised if quite a few people reach out for your help today — in both personal and professional realms. There are many erratic energies humming around your circle of friends and family right now, and you seem to be the only person who has the antidote. But don’t assume that your popularity can only be attributed to what you can do for other people. You have a calmness about you that people love to feed off of. Share it generously today.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Be careful not to hold too tightly onto old ideas right now … new ideas are not always better, but they’re always worth investigating. So don’t ever close your mind off to innovative thinking. Today, if someone introduces something that makes you uncomfortable, don’t be too reactionary. A narrow mind is just that — narrow. That means it’s too small to accommodate anything of real value. Open your mind, and invite in things that make you ponder. You’ll end up wiser.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19): Sometimes, when there’s an emotional storm brewing in your life, it’s better to accept it and just ride it out. Fighting nature is a losing proposition … so why waste all of your precious energy shaking your hands at the sky? What really matters is staying true to what you believe. Face the fury of those who disagree — in your heart, you know they’re wrong. Chances are they know they’re wrong, too. Give this tornado the respect it deserves, but don’t let it shake your foundation.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Your recent accomplishments have earned you an extended stay in the spotlight — and while you have been blessed with much applause, there are some green-eyed demons in the audience as well. Jealousy has a way of turning good people into small people, so you must rely on your magnanimous nature to forgive people whose insecurity causes them to speak ill of you. No matter what harsh words are overheard, it’s time to focus on the good, move forward and let the envious people get over it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Silence can be uncomfortable sometimes, but right now you should try to get comfortable with the idea of being with someone and not saying a word. Next time you’re with a friend or loved one, resist the urge to keep conversations going. Just let the quiet time come over both of you and see what happens. You’ll feel comforted and may find that your thoughts are evident enough — there’s no need to fill up empty space with empty chatter.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Like a small bird distracted by shiny objects, you might have some trouble focusing on one thing at a time today. In part, you can’t be blamed — there’s a lot of stimulation coming your way as well as many tempting avenues for you to explore. Don’t chide yourself for your scattered thoughts — this is just your creativity awakening. Explore as much as you can and try to satisfy your voracious hunger. As long as you have the urge, you should follow it
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22): Your sense of love for humankind is endearing, but you must acknowledge the fact that not everyone is motivated by the common good — and it’s wise to not expect too much of people today. There is too much laziness, jealousy and scheming going on for you to feel comfortable trusting anyone, especially anyone new. Try to stick with the people you know and love the most, and stay close to home if you can. It’s not an ideal time for adventuring.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Being focused on your latest big goal is definitely wise right now, but you need to maintain proper perspective. Keeping your eye on the ball doesn’t mean you should put on blinders and shut out all other people or events. Balance your life with some serious things and some silly things, and you’ll enjoy a lot more power. Family relationships are very important right now, so make sure you fit a long phone call into your busy day.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22): Get ready for a wonderful sense of relief today — something arrives in your inbox and answers a question you were afraid to ask. Aren’t you glad you had the patience to wait this thing out? If you’ve been waiting for your ship to get easier to navigate, that day is here. Celebrate the good news by letting yourself show your happiness — spread it around and let everyone know that patience isn’t just a virtue. It can be a blessing, too.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Emotional conflicts are swimming in your head, and they could distract you from the tasks at hand. Luckily, any of these issues will be good to ponder … you have some tough choices to make, but you really can’t go wrong, no matter what you decide. Ask a friend to hear you out — share what you’re going through with someone you trust, someone who values honesty above sweet talk. Don’t worry that you will come off as weak or indecisive — the people in your life want to help.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Sometimes, to get a better view of the big picture and the world around you, you need to peer into your own heart. Base your actions today solely on what you want — not on what you think other people want. It is time you relied on yourself as the best judge of a potentially tricky situation. You don’t have to ask other people what to do this time. You know the right answer, and you know what to do. Use charts you’ve drawn to navigate these waters.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Feeling overwhelmed by the day-to-day tasks of your life? It might do you some good to trim back on your lifestyle. If you pare things down to just the bare necessities, you’ll find that life can be a lot simpler than you thought. This self-imposed hectic energy is not good for the relationships you’re trying to build. People don’t need fancy surroundings or scheduled itineraries. They just need you. So clear your schedule, make a lunch date — and keep it simple.
