AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): You have never been particularly immature, but lately you’ve been noticing a certain shift in yourself. This change could really crystallize when you see yourself behaving in an unfamiliar way in a familiar situation. Maybe you’re calmer. Maybe you don’t take things as personally. Maybe you stay objective. Maybe you’re seeing what it’s like to be an adult.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): You like to work hard and you like hard work. You could get trapped, though, in the pattern of avoiding other things (uncomfortable emotions, sadness, anger) by staying really busy. Are you doing this? Check for symptoms. Ask yourself: Are you not taking care of yourself because you’re too busy? Are you putting off conflict because you have too much work? Are you happy? Do you know how you feel at all?
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):
Take a long hard look around before you take any action. If you’ve been feeling like it’s time to resolve a problem in your personal life, you could well be right: You’re at your most critical, analytical and insightful right now. But don’t rush into it. It’s important that you really understand the situation before you start in on changing it. This is as true for your finances as it is for your love life.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Some days you are so darned analytical it seems as if you could take any old problem and analyze it down to its most important component parts, figure out how to fix it, and then just do it. That’s great. Whether it’s a work problem or a domestic issue, you’re going to bring these analytical skills to bear. Thank goodness for you!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you’re painting your bedroom, don’t go back to the drawing board. You’ve spent weeks picking out the right colors, and now the furniture is standing around in the hallway and the base coat is dry. Do the second coat and get to work on the detailing — it may take more time than you expect. And yes, you picked the right shade of orange to match that royal blue! It looks good! So finish the project already.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make a real effort. Sweat, sweat, sweat! Then sweat a little more. If you’re doing this work literally, you’ll be building important muscle groups in your body. If you’re doing this work metaphorically, you’ll be building important muscle groups in your character. You’ll be a tough customer by the end of the day, and that is exactly what you need to handle your business.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
Sometimes you can’t move on until you’ve really faced a problem from the past. If you’re in this situation, today is the day when things could clear up a little. Something shifts, and the past suddenly seems less threatening. You can look at it head on, and then move on. But take it slow: Even if it is easier, it isn’t easy, and you need to give yourself plenty of time to rest and recuperate.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): If you’ve been feeling stymied by various blocks, external and internal, that could all change now. Does it coincide, by any chance, with your return to a regular exercise routine? These two things — the lifting of blocks and the sticking-to-it of exercise — are related phenomena. How can weight lifting change your boss’s mind, you want to know? Often, even external blocks are actually internal.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
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.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): What is it you want? Today’s a very good day to ask yourself this question, because it is very, very, very, very likely you’re going to get whatever you want. On the other hand, if you don’t feel like posing that question, you can just sit back and see what you get. Chances are good that it is what you wanted, whether you knew it or not. So be open to what comes your way… and enjoy!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): You’re a curious one, all right. You want to know how this works and how that works. This curiosity for the world around you is one of your most valuable assets. It guarantees that you’ll stay interested and engaged (and thereby fulfilled) your whole life long. So get out there and find answers to some of your questions today!
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): If work were a camping trip, you’d be in charge of the grill. Why? For one thing, everybody trusts you when it comes to handling fire. You can light it, you can keep it burning, you can make sure it doesn’t get so big that is sets the paper plates and tablecloths on fire. Further, people trust you to distribute the hot dogs fairly, equitably and fully cooked. Yep, it’s no wonder you’re the office equivalent of the grill chef — who else is as trustworthy as you?
