AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): This morning, dress in clothes that can take you from a formal appointment to a wild party, because this will be an expansive day full of opportunity. You never know where a conversation will take you, especially today — so you should be prepared for anything. Put yourself in the middle of a group of friendly people. Even if you have nothing to say, you will be warmly welcomed. Lasting relationships will be formed in a moment.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Try to pay more attention to any young adults or teenagers in your life right now. You make a very good role model, and you have some interesting ideas that they would benefit from. If all the kids you know live far away, get in touch by e-mail or by sending a card. Just make sure that you are somehow present in their lives. They have some things to teach you, too—and as the adult, you need to be the one to open up the lines of communication.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19): Becoming closer to someone else is a very rewarding sensation for you right now, but it could also be negatively affecting your sense of independence. This is a natural dilemma that you should be aware of, not a problem you should run away from. You are going through a wonderful transition in your life, and today is a good day to look for balance between the life you led alone and the life you will lead in partnership with someone else.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): This day is all about perspective, and apparently yours is a bit too narrow right now. Too much of what you see is what you want to see, and it’s time to widen your horizons. Push through self-imposed barriers, and encourage your friends to do the same—after all, it’s no fun being enlightened all by yourself! Go to a new place to hang out, or talk to someone from a different background. Remind yourself that the world is full of people who are just doing their best to be happy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If someone is pushing you toward a certain action right now, it is in your best interest to push right back. There’s no need to make a big issue about it, just firmly state that you are going to follow your own plans, and that’s that. Your power is your own to retain, so don’t be too willing to give it up. Even if you’re in a tough spot and would like someone else to make some of your difficult decisions, you have to handle everything on your own right now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Guess who could use a little tender loving care today? You — that’s who! Spend some quality time by yourself, listening to your own thoughts and waiting for the universe to give you some answers. The pace of the world is much too fast for you right now, so why don’t you simply step aside and let the crazy parade of people run on by? Their destination doesn’t really appeal to you anyway.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22): Try not to let someone’s arrogance put you in a sour mood—as much as you might want to throw a drink in his or her face. After all, if you let every knucklehead out there affect your mood, you would never be able to relax. Lately, there has been an unpleasantly high number of negative, pompous people around you, but that is all about to change soon. Tune them out and focus on the people who add joy to your life.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Whatever you do today—whether it’s running errands, studying for a big test, or just working out—try to insert some romance into it. Even if you’re already in a relationship or are not in the mood to begin a new one anytime soon, you shouldn’t ignore the charms and beauty of all the people you encounter today. Flirting is harmless, and it makes people smile. Don’t worry that people will take you too seriously; just have fun and make connections.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22): Try to be as expressive as you can today—unleash your emotions and let the whole world know what you’re feeling! Wearing your heart on your sleeve can be quite charming, especially when you want a certain someone to get to know the real you. Step out of your businesslike mode and get down to real feelings and honesty. Timorous conversations will leave you yawning—you need debate, vulnerability, and revelations to feed your mind today!
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): If your recent attempt to get in touch with someone from your past didn’t create the results you were hoping for, do not despair. Unlike you, this person is simply not ready for a reunion. The reasons may very well have little, if anything, to do with you, so don’t take it personally. This person hasn’t been affecting your mood for a long time, and there’s no need to give him or her that power now! Focus on moving forward. You can’t wait for someone who won’t make an effort.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): A mind game you are playing with someone right now is quickly headed toward its final round today—and with your dedication, it’s no wonder that you are determined to be the victor. To come out on top, you need to gather up all of your willpower and avoid any temptation that comes your way. If you take a break to have fun, you may miss an important chance to gain an advantage. Stay focused, and you will get what you deserve.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Carefully thinking things through is usually a good idea, but beware of spending too much time second-guessing yourself right now. Creativity and originality can be crushed by too much analysis. The stars favor quick decisions right now, so don’t spend your day carefully deliberating. In a group setting, go ahead and express your innovative idea, and see how it’s received. Don’t try to make it perfect before you unveil it.
