AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Keep in mind that gifts are all about the sentiment they represent—what they cost is not necessarily important. So if you are shopping for a gift right now, don’t overspend. Chances are, this person won’t know how much you spent on it—and if they did, they would feel more guilty than grateful. Think about giving them something that they really want and could use in their everyday life. That way, they’ll think of you often—and your gift will become an extension of your feelings.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Your support means an awful lot to others today—more than you might realize. Those tough-talking people you know and love are just soft, sweet teddy bears deep down inside, and they can be just as insecure as you can be. Be sure that you communicate the pride or admiration you feel for them today. Share those feelings with the people you think need to hear it, as well as the people who you assume hear it all the time—because chances are, they don’t.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19): Do not waste your precious time on trying to change the behavior of an annoying person this morning. You won’t be able to, and he or she will only resent your efforts. Save your energy for later today, when a real problem may rear its ugly head. The bad news? This situation will probably not be resolved by the end of the day. But the good news is you will at least see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope will help you have a good night’s sleep.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): If you are feeling a little out of sync with one of your friends today, it’s probably just your imagination. Yes, there have been some major changes in this friend’s life, but that does not mean that she or he thinks of you any differently—or that your relationship has to shrink in any way. Get in some real quality time to give yourself confidence about where you stand with this person. Be respectful, and you will be respected.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Okay, so you might not exactly be in love with your career right now, but there is a very bright light shining in your professional future. You are paying into an account of goodwill that will start to show handsome returns very soon. It’s important for you to keep thinking about your goals, and not to get too emotional about your current situation. There’s no reason to feel hopeless. In fact, you have every reason to feel hopeful.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Distractions are not necessarily bad—sometimes they can spark a new idea, entertain you on a boring day, or just keep your mind humming in a relaxed, healthy way. So await upcoming distractions with open arms. See what the world has to offer you, and don’t be afraid to let yourself drift. Be prepared for your mind to wander, and you’ll stay one step ahead of whatever the day has to offer you. The good news is that this day will offer you the stimulation you’ve been waiting for!
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22): As soon as you open your eyes, every move you make is devoted to taking care of business related to your relationship. Your actions may be temporarily distracted by the arrival of someone new and interesting who tries to get to you, but it can’t last for too long. Force yourself to focus your attention and make them leave. The probability of a big fight is tricky, especially if you’re running late.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): If you’re together with someone new at the moment, your friends aren’t seeing much of you for the next few days. You need serious privacy, but that doesn’t mean you need to be alone. In fact, you probably end up nesting with someone in a far-off place — or at least making plans for something like that. It’s way more fun than going solo, isn’t it?
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22): There is no reason for you to be afraid to step into a new world today. Your energy won’t let you down, and your desire to experience strange and challenging events is only going to get stronger — so you have to satisfy it! There is no better way to get that ‘hey, I can do this!’ feeling than by stepping out of your comfort zone and trying a new task or hobby. So take a deep breath and dive right in — what are you waiting for? It will be an exciting day.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Nobody ever said it was going to be easy. Okay, maybe somebody did say that. But they were wrong, and if you believed them, you could be in for a little wake-up call. But don’t worry — if things were easy, life would be so boring! It’s much better this way. You’ll be much more energized and engaged, and that will make the whole prospect more interesting.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): There’s something new up ahead, and you think you’ve gotten a glimpse of what it might be. Is it a new project? A new apartment? A new love? A new lease on life? New energy? A new sport? A new car? A used car with a new car smell, thanks to some-body’s bright idea to sell a spray that smells like a new car? It could be exciting, whatever it is.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Whether you help your elderly neighbor carry groceries or you volunteer to paint the local grade school, you always feel best if you’re giving of yourself. There are thousands of opportunities to volunteer, and by taking any one of them, you’ll be making a big difference in your community. And this will make a big difference in how you feel about yourself.
