AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Do you have big plans for the future? If yes, it’s time to start laying the framework so you can make those plans come to fruition with a minimum of frustration. This might include some organizational type stuff, like getting your files up to date, or some big picture work, as you brainstorm what you want your life to look like. If you don’t have big plans for the future, now’s the time to start thinking about some, ASAP!
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): It’s a dandy idea to regularly schedule some time to put your feet up and appreciate all the wondrous things that abound in your life from the very smallest joys (caramel-covered apples and multicolored Post-It notes) to the largest (friends, family, and nature). So even though you have tons of bubbling energy to spare, give yourself permission to do not a darned thing with it except enjoy the life you have.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19): Everyone loves those do-gooder makeover shows on TV, right? Well, guess what? You can reenact some of that reality TV magic right in your own backyard. Get up on your feet and share some of what you’ve got with a neighborhood or a particular someone in need. All it takes is a little bit of effort. You don’t have to rebuild someone’s house. Maybe just taking them a hot meal when you know they can’t get one for themselves is exactly the gesture of kindness they need right now.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): It’s time to savor the joys that really matter. So slow down and give yourself some space to breathe. Plan a great meal and invite your dearest friends and family along. Whether you’re cooking or gathering everyone together at a favorite restaurant doesn’t matter — what is important is that you can take the time to appreciate the simple joys in life. Those always end up being the most important, anyway.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Petty squabbles can get out of hand if you lose sight of what’s really important. It’s paramount during moments like these to keep a cool head even if others around you are intent on losing theirs — heck, they might be so intent it seems like they’re giving those heads away gratis. If you feel your own mental space getting crowded or clouded, give yourself a time out and tackle this problem when you’re feeling calmer.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re able to sense the truth of the matter before anyone says a word — in fact, you’re so astute that you’re practically reading minds right now. While this feeling is certainly familiar to you, it will be taken to new heights thanks to the benevolent and sensitive celestial influences surrounding you. Use these gifts to their fullest when talking with the folks who are nearest and dearest to you. You’re sure to learn a lot.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22): Normally you’re not the diplomat of the zodiac; in fact, you’re more used to being one of the noble leaders, but right now you’re all about finding ways to maintain balance and bring as much good feeling as possible to all the parties involved. Combine that sincere desire with your natural charm and warmth, and you have a knockout combination. Go ahead and tackle whatever tricky situation presents itself. You can smooth things out in no time.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): It’s all about yoga, or tai chi or Pilates — in other words, you’re ready to scrap the usual gym routine for a regimen that exercises your body and your mind. The change of pace will definitely benefit all areas of your life, as you’ll not only be inspired to exercise more, but you’ll have tons of energy left over to tackle that top-to-bottom cleaning project and all those social plans that have been on the back burner recently.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22): Big things happen when you indulge in some small talk. If you’re feeling unexpectedly shy and retiring, there’s no need to force yourself to be a social animal. Instead, work on having casual conversations and low-key exchanges with the people around you. Not only will you pick up some great tips and have some enlightening encounters, but you’ll notice that your shyness has dissipated into nothing before you know it.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Set your sights on intriguing career opportunities and promising partnerships. It could just revive your interest in your current job as well as present you with avenues for different opportunities if you so desire. Any changes set in motion now will do you a world of good, especially if you are considering shaking up your lifestyle and putting a little zip in everyday routines that are feeling tired.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Going beyond your own national borders is at the top of your must-do list. You’re ever so curious about different lands, customs and ways of life. Plus you can’t wait to buy a phrasebook in your new language du jour and start practicing. Make sure you have your passport up to date and are ready to take off at a moment’s notice. An unexpected travel opportunity could come your way early in the evening.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Just because others are losing their heads doesn’t mean that you have to take the same tack. So before you start running around and yelling about how the sky is falling, take a deep breath — and then take a good, long look at the situation. You might just find that things aren’t quite so bad as everyone is making them out to be. Once your cooler head prevails, others might be able to see the same thing as well.
