AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Someone is going to find you inspiring, today — your recent accomplishments are making them think twice about things. Now, they want to instigate a change or two in their life. Unfortunately, you probably see complications in their plans. Should you rain on their parade, or support them blindly? The answer will come to you later, when they come to you for advice. Be honest — warn them of the complications that they could encounter. You need to protect them as well as support them.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): It’s a fine idea to plan ahead in your life, but make sure you’re doing it with facts and plans — not just wishes and hopes. Daydreaming about your future is a lot like playing pretend — lots of fun, but not very appropriate for grownups. So today, stop picturing what your life will be like in ten years and just focus on making it better now. Try to live in the moment. In order to create a better life down the road, you have to improve the foundations, today.


ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

The future belongs to people who think for themselves, so where does that leave you? Being a part of the crowd is important, and you certainly don’t want to create tension among your people. But when you start agreeing to things that you don’t actually believe in, that’s too far over the line. Today, you have to hold on to your convictions and keep your individuality. If other people react poorly to your opinions or disagreement, then that’s their problem to solve — not yours.


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): You need to avoid getting involved in anything that remotely looks like a power struggle, today. First of all, you don’t need the drama in your life, right now. And secondly, there is never a real winner in situations like these. Sure, there is someone who comes out on top, but the resentment that is directed at the victor is too isolating to be ignored. You need to focus on working with people, not against them. It’s healthier and much more productive.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Try to avoid preachy types of people today — especially the ones you don’t agree with! They won’t pay attention to a new point of view, and will go to great lengths to mock it. This kind of ignorance is not something you ever enjoy, so why put up with it? If it’s a powerful person who’s spouting out all the hot air, then just walk away. You don’t have to pick a fight with them and get in their bad graces. Just remove yourself from being within earshot.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Today, if you can learn to be flexible, you will have a much better day than if you stick to your guns and close your mind to other ways of doing things. You do not know everything — this is shocking news, but it is true. Try to have a sense of humor about doing things you don’t exactly want to do. Not only will it keep you happier, but being able to adapt will help you rise above all the pettiness that others are creating and keep you out of any dramatic squabbles.


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

If your strategy for making a change in your life is based on hoping and wishing for things to be different, then you need to find a different approach! Luckily, a creative friend will have wonderful suggestion about how to make good things come into your life, concretely. Their idea might not sound very earth-shattering to you, but if you follow their advice, you will soon see that a small alteration in your daily routine can have a ripple effect on the rest of your life.


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Having a routine in your life can help you get things done more quickly, but it can also make things a little bit boring. So if you’re looking for a way to make your regular way of doing things a little bit different, ask a few friends for advice. Find out how they keep variety in their life and try to apply one or two of their tactics to your day. It might not feel comfortable at first, but at least it will be different, and that can be very interesting.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

There has been some growing distance between you and a friend, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Don’t worry that the relationship is coming to an end. Friendships are not always just about having fun: They should be about growing, too. And growing pains are inevitable. You two are good for each other, so focus on that. It’s important for you to respect them and accept their opinions, even if you don’t agree with them. Value the history you share together.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): People might have a tough time agreeing with you about what is the right way to go about doing things — but the reasons they are resisting your solutions might have less to do with their quality and more to do with their own ego. Their insecurities are leading to conflict right now, so don’t take them seriously. If you have faith in your strategy and ideas, then you should stand behind them. Go off on your own if you have to — there comes a time when you have to make a stand.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): If you are currently in a relationship, you should be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get to work, soon. There will be some issues popping up that you’ll need to deal with. It’s nothing that will be all that difficult, but it will be time-consuming. Plus, all the work you put in will bring the two of you closer. If you’re not in a relationship, then today you should work a little harder in order to connect to your latest crush. They’re a bit thick — you need to be more obvious.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): There is going to be a big case of ‘the blahs’ going around your group today, so you can’t expect to get a lot done unless you wake everybody up out of their stupor! You will have to work extra hard to get everyone to step out of their usual routine and start thinking outside the box, but you will have fun doing it. And once you get people to see what they could be doing instead of only seeing what they always do, they’ll be grateful for the wake-up call.
