AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): There are clues being tossed about you today, but it won’t take long for you to complete the picture and solve the mystery. Try not to laugh when everyone around you is still scratching their head while you’re finished up early and off doing something more enjoyable. Their problem is that they have fixed ideas about everything — they can’t wrap their mind around the idea that things could be done in a different way. So don’t ever take your open-mindedness for granted. It’s your best tool, now.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Does your wallet need to go on a diet, or is it starving all on its own? Money issues can create a huge amount of stress in your life, but you can get away from them, at least for 24 hours. If you are worried about finances, today is a day to take a break from it all. Get together with a good friend and go off and do something that is fun — and free. Take a walk, bake some cookies, or play a board game together. It won’t take much to entertain you, and you’ll start smiling again.


ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

Your energy is positively bursting out of you today, shining bright light and positivity on everyone you will encounter. To make the best use of all of this contagious enthusiasm, dive into projects or adventures that involve a lot of other people — the more diverse the group is, the better! You are especially well-tuned toward other cultures and beliefs, and your mind is wide open to new concepts. There are important insights out there that you are finally ready to understand. So go see into them!


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Whatever advice you give today will have more importance for its recipient than you might think it would, so be careful about how adamant you are that they follow it. They already feel like you have all the answers and know exactly what they should do — their attachment to you is growing, and pretty much whatever you say goes. If this makes you feel uncomfortable, then say so. Make it clear that you think they are capable of making the right decisions.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you’re trying to solidify a relationship with someone, try picking a fight with them today! It may sound nuts, but sometimes a conflict can create a stronger bond. You two can have a lot of fun debating the issues of the day — and in doing so, you’ll learn a lot more about each other than you would if you were getting along perfectly all the time. So today, make sure when you start a conversation that you don’t focus just on safe small talk. Push the envelope a little bit over the edge.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): It’s wonderful to be giving and generous with other people, but your extravagant spirit could be getting out of control right now. Could it be putting your bank account in jeopardy? Today, cut back on giving gifts and spending your time with others. And by the way, do you really need to pick up the check every time you go to lunch with someone? Try letting someone else pick up the tab now and then — give them the chance to show you how generous they can be!


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

Being modest is all well and good, but it must be the first thing you toss aside today when you see an opportunity to get what you want. Whether it’s some face time with the boss or that certain cutie’s phone number, you can’t be shy. Present yourself in all your glory — uninhibited, and ready for praise. When you lead with your strengths, you are sure to get noticed — and sure to get the results you want. Let your light shine so bright that it’s blinding!


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Beware of the people who boast about their achievements today. You don’t brag about how great you are, because you choose to let your actions and behavior speak for you. When people resort to tooting their own horn all the time, it’s because they don’t have any other way to show people what they are capable. These people lack substance, and should be avoided at all costs. They are a total waste of your time, especially on a busy day like today.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

If every little detail of your life hasn’t been lining up quite as neatly as you would have wanted, have no fear! Take heart in the fact that you see the bigger picture — you know that by making small but consistent efforts to keep things on track, you can eventually get to where you need to be. Sure, there might be an unexpected detour or two (or twelve) on the way, but isn’t that what makes life interesting? So if you get derailed today, just try to relax and enjoy the new experience.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): It might not be your first choice to work with a partner today, but you should put your best foot forward and try to have a good attitude. There could be one or two conflicts between the two of you, but if you can just put your ego aside for the day, you’ll soon see that this other person has a lot of intelligent and creative ideas. Be humble and don’t get in your own way today. There is no need to feel threatened by this person, so why would you choose to?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Today, you need to revel in all of your greatness — especially if you are going through a phase when you don’t feel so great. Take a minute early in the day to remember all of the successes you’ve achieved and all of the challenges you have overcome. Reach around and pat yourself on the back. Admit that not everyone could do what you have done! Keep going down this path — it might not be fun all of the time, but it’s the right direction for you, and you know it.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): This is a good day to have some fun. There aren’t any real business problems plaguing you, and your schedule is wide open. Get in touch with someone you’ve been missing and see if they’ve got time to hang out with you. And if they don’t, find out how you can help them do their business. Joining them on their errands, helping them cram for a test, or giving them moral support through a challenge are all great ways to reconnect and make yourself feel the like good friend you are.
