AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): You will be able to fix an injustice today and give credit to the person who truly deserves it — you! This is not an easy day to stand up for yourself, but you’ve been on such a good roll lately that difficulty shouldn’t stop you from doing it. You owe it to the people who are watching to say what is on your mind. Be completely honest about what you think you deserve. There is no point in sharing your ideas unless you share all of them, the pleasant and the hard to hear.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): There are some people who have been working very hard to help you, and it’s time for you to let them know how grateful you are for what they’ve helped you accomplish. Give them a token of your appreciation today in the form of bonuses, small gifts, or even just a cheerful ‘thank you’ card — whatever your budget and your schedule can allow. Taking time out to let people know how valuable they are to you not only makes them feel good, it will make you feel good.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19): Be careful asking for more time with the big boss right about now. They could be dealing with some personal issues and won’t have a lot of patience for long discussions about your career or what new responsibilities you’re looking for. They’re a person, too, and they deserve to be given some slack during tough times. Treat them as you would a friend — give them what they need, and if it becomes a problem, deal with it then. Don’t worry about things until you need to worry about them.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): When you set your hopes way up high, you increase the chances that you will be disappointed. So be smart, today, and try not to pin everything on how a single meeting or date goes. Keep an open mind and let yourself accept each hour as it comes. If you try to control everything and everyone, you will only end up getting frustrated. When people can sense that you’re trying to push things in a certain direction, they will push right back. So focus on collaboration, not total control.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s strategically smart to be flexible with your coworkers from time to time, but don’t let things go too far — you don’t want to set a precedent that you are some sort of pushover! So speak up if you start feeling like a doormat and don’t be shy about protecting your territory or clarifying a misunderstanding. Sometimes the only way to get respect is to demand it. A quiet word to the right person will get you all the satisfaction you need and it will show others that you don’t mess around.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You should continue on your quest to be more mindful of other people, today, by letting someone else in on the perks you have — share something of yours that is deemed valuable by a coworker or friend, and make sure to do it in a casual way. This is not about them being blown away by how generous you are! It’s about you making them understand just how important they are in your life. When you show warmth to someone unexpectedly, it can solidify important bonds between the two of you.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22): If you act more on your impulses, you will be able to mix up your routine and have more fun! The fact that your day-to-day business is getting boring has more to do with you than anything else — you’ve got to remember that you have the power to add excitement to your life. Your friends would absolutely love it if you loosened up a bit and stopped taking things so seriously — and boy, would they love to help you do it! They have some ideas, so why not ask them for some input?
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Your confidence is going to get one or two boosts early on today, which will send your ego skyrocketing — but while that happens, make sure that you keep your feet planted on the ground! If you get too opinionated about things, you could push some people away who were just warming up to you! So be sure to use the power of your growing ego for good — believe that you are the most charming person in the room, and others will see that, too. You don’t have to say a word.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22): If you end up dealing with an arrogant person today, try not to let their bad behavior tarnish who they are in your eyes. Sometimes when people get put into a difficult situation, they lash out and act defensively or impolitely. Perhaps this boorish person is just feeling insecure? Try to understand that one encounter will not give you a complete idea of who they really are. Give this person another chance to impress you. You will be very glad that you did.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Let your creativity call the shots today — no matter what silly stuff it’s telling you to do. So what if it tells you to wear mismatched socks, speak only in rhyme, or skip down the street all day? It needs you to hear its voice. Apparently, you have been ignoring it a little too much for a little too long. Being serious might get you more credibility at work, but what is it doing for your personality? Let your wackier side show — people will love seeing you flex your creative muscles.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Go ahead and dive right in to your latest obsessions, but try not to lose your grasp on reality! You need to create time for work and play — devoting all your time to one or the other is not wise. If you think that it’s not fun to create balance in your life, you’re wrong. Not only is it fun, but it’s easy! First, try to schedule your time. Give an hour to work, an hour to play — soon enough you will be able to stop watching the clock. It will be second nature!
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Why are you hiding what you really have to offer? Being coy might seem like a cute way to get attention, but it’s not a good way to make what you’re about really clear to people. You need to be blunt and open about who you are and what you want to bring to the table. Take the risk of revealing yourself — you won’t be disappointed. You are a lot more intriguing than you realize, and a clue toward solving the mystery will attract a lot of people to you.
