AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18):
Have you have been living beyond your means lately? Charging up a storm, opting for the upgrade or just buying without thinking are not things you can do for too long. Sooner or later, indiscriminate spending will catch up to you. So today, don’t overspend — put the brakes on luxury living until you have paid for everything you purchased in the past. Debt will only hold you back. Investigate some debt relief options online, or take another look at tightening your budget.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20):
It’s a great day to rediscover an old part of your life. Go digging through old photos, CDs, and saved greeting cards. You will be struck by how much things have changed — and how much they haven’t. Getting back in touch with an old friend, re-reading one of your favorite novels, or driving by your old neighborhood will all remind you of how much you’ve grown. You knew what to take with you through life, but more importantly, you knew what to leave behind. Soak up the satisfaction.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):
A meeting or informal discussion at work will reveal a real problem with how people are communicating — or rather, miscommunicating. Before mid-day, it will become all too clear that people are not using the same terms to discuss the central issue. A translator is needed — and you are the likely nominee. Good thing you are so knowledgeable when it comes to how things should work! You can be the voice of reason in this situation. You’ll be a calming influence in the room. Get ready to be the hero.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20):
Just because your fantasies aren’t real doesn’t mean that they can’t affect your real life. Sometimes, your subconscious needs you to draw a map for it to follow. Get detailed about what you see — from the clothes on your back to the car you drive, imagine exactly what you want. Visualizing your life down the road is an excellent way to give yourself a goal to work toward. Try to have a more futuristic focus right now, and stop worrying so much about mistakes from your past.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you are on one side of an issue and all your friends are on another, well, so what? You do not have to take on the burden of changing everyone’s minds — if you disagree with them that doesn’t have to mean that you think less of them. Agree to disagree and avoid this controversy in the future. Pushing your agenda too hard will turn people off, and make them think that you don’t accept them for who they are. As long as they’re not breaking any laws or indulging in hatefulness, don’t let it bother you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22):
Today, you could be subject to some unsolicited advice from a coworker or peer that will sound suspiciously like a lecture. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to do much more than nod and smile as they go on and on, loving the sound of their own voice. It’s a good thing you don’t have to listen. Just let your mind wander off to places where their narrow ideas about how to do everything in life don’t matter. You should feel no pressure to follow their directions, whatsoever.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
You are a very creative person, so why not create something today? You don’t have to paint a painting or create a typical type of artwork — baking cookies, putting together a new outfit, or even making a mixed CD are all great ways to express yourself in a unique way. Create something for someone you care about and give them your creation as a gift — they’ll appreciate the extra effort and thoughtfulness, and they’ll love showing you their gratitude.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22):
Working in a group could create some drama today, but it will also enable you to get a lot done. So if you’re on a tight deadline, get everyone together and brace yourself for the little spats that could erupt. Chances are that people will play nicely today, but you can help ease tensions by creating a peaceful environment. Make sure the fridge is full, the music is mellow and the furniture is comfortable. Make it a happy place, and people will stay happy.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
Today your daily routine will be thrown on its ear at a very inconvenient moment. You could spend the rest of the day trying to figure out how to right it again, but you don’t have to. If you delegate a few tasks to someone else or ask for some assistance, you can get righted and back on track in a flash. There are folks who are ready and waiting to lend you a hand — one of them is even eager to help, so don’t hesitate to call them up.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21):
The games people are playing today are going to get pretty competitive, almost to the point of ugliness. You need to think long and hard about whether you even want to get involved. At this point in your life, you need to find your way out of these types of power struggles. They are beneath you. Instead, just focus on having fun, today. Let other people step into the rat race and get stressed out. Winning at any cost is not your style. Call up your sweetie or a good friend and make some afternoon plans.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21):
Unless you act decisively today, you could run miss out on a big opportunity. You might think that being tentative is the safer strategy, but what you gain in security, you lose in excitement. Risk doesn’t have to be scary — it’s time for you to get more comfortable with uncertainty in your life. So take a tiny gamble today, and see how it pans out. You could be in store for a big payoff. And if you’re not, well, at least you tried! And that means something.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19):
Working with another person, especially in a creative context, will be very rewarding for you. You will almost be able to read their mind! If you are ready to make a big change in your life, this person could be the one to help you make it, although they might not realize it. You are more connected to other people than you realize — even people you don’t like. Reach out to someone who you never quite hit if off with before, today. You might just be surprised at how warmly they receive you.
