AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Your freedom means everything to you, so you’ve set up your work or home life in such a way that you can come and go when you like. Sometimes, though, your lack of roots leaves you feeling a little lonely, or even misinformed. Try to be more of a team player today, if possible. Jumping into a group situation of some kind means you lose a bit of independence, but you pick up plenty of creative input and support.

PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Extravagance is everything for you now, and you’re the best when it comes to living large and having fun. Your energy is stimulating your pleasure centers, but this influence could leave you feeling buyer’s regret — and maybe a creeping fear about your credit rating! Avoid the shopping district (especially online), because draining your bank account isn’t worth the brief pleasure you get.

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):
You need to reorganize your finances today, but make sure to take a few key precautions. Your interest in fiscal health is great (and timely), but it’s not smart to tackle too many cost-cutting measures at the same time. The shock of austerity can’t help you stick to your budget in the long-term. A lucky windfall drops in your lap just when you need it the most, giving you just the boost you need to make it last.

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Enjoy all of life’s pleasures today, from the greatest to the smallest. It’s important that you’re open-minded when appreciating the best things in life, whether you’re walking barefoot in the park or living large in a stretch limo. Try to remain fully present in your body and embody each action — that should keep you more aware of what’s going on, but also better able to enjoy your time on earth.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take time for yourself by putting your life on hold. Walk around the park, stare at the sky and otherwise refresh your senses with the parts of life that really matter. Sunshine and open space are vital for you now. The peace can help you ponder everything that’s going on in your life. Once you feel centered, you’re better able to take on the challenges that come later.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your energy powers up all the way, and now you feel like you can do anything. You look (and feel) fantastic, and this amazing, dynamic energy helps you in every aspect of your life. That could mean grabbing a sweet work assignment, kick-starting your love life or inaugurating a new schedule that liberates you to explore those personal creative projects. You’re a dynamo, so get busy!

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
Your energy is acting like a carnival barker now, exhorting one and all to step right up and check out the magnificence that is you! Thanks to their amazing performance, expect job prospects to multiply, enticing you to choose a sweet option right away. Though you’ve got plenty of choices, now is not the time to up and quit your job — or even decide to pull up the roots and move to a new town — on a whim.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): You need to get rid of any unrealistic goals — and while you’re at it, give that perfectionism a rest for the time being! They’re nothing but a weight that keeps you down and prevents you from seeing real possibilities. It’s past time for a change in attitude if you’re looking externally for missing pieces to make you feel complete. Success is all about understanding exactly how much you’ve actually accomplished.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
You’re so sweet-natured that others may make accidentally underestimate you. You shake all that up, though, when you turn one of your outrageous ideas into a firm reality. Now is a great time to marshal your forces and try setting up new partnerships, especially those who complement your strengths. With you in charge, this new endeavor should be a tremendous success.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Resisting all efforts to change, no matter what, may feel somewhat cool at first, but it becomes increasingly unworkable for you, especially if you let your temper flare up as well. Why not decide to try serenity when everyone around you starts flinging mud? It should all pay off for you at work as you power past big obstacles and find new options. In love, the new attitude helps you get closer to that special person.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): A roadblock may appear in the form of a sudden impulse to gobble down a pile of salty junk food, blow off big deadlines to play Bejeweled or chase after some hottie who is plainly bad for you. Stamp out those self-destructive urges as soon as you spot them! The biggest obstacle may be just noticing that they exist, rather than mindlessly obeying them. If you can pull it off, the rest is a cakewalk!

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Everything smooths out when you just relax and trust in the universe. It’s difficult to believe, but you don’t actually have the last word on how things turn out — this time. That ought to be welcome news since it means you can actually live your life instead of trying to steer it. That should release a pile of stress, but also improve your willingness to try new things.
