AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): You might think that by giving yourself boundaries you will give yourself more self-discipline. This is definitely not the case, though — especially today, when you will be better off just letting yourself go. Enough with the self-imposed restrictions! You need some more freedom in your life and you should give yourself that freedom. Don’t schedule everything down to the minute. Leave room for spontaneity and last minute ideas — they’re usually the best, anyway.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Your high energy level is a mixed blessing today — it will help you get an awful lot off your plate, but it could trigger some tension between you and the folks who are moving a lot more slowly than you are. Changes are happening within your group, and not everyone is on the same page right now. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to become a leader for others — they are a little bit lost, and looking for a way to get some clarity. Share your ideas with them.


ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

It’s perfectly acceptable to rely on the support of friends and family to see you through the tough times — after all, they love doing it. But at a certain time you have to get back to normal life, and start dealing with your emotions on your own. You can do this — you have done it before, and you will have to do it again, probably. Move away from the caring-but-limiting arms of loved ones. Go off on your own and remind yourself that being independent is the healthiest way to be right now.


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Be ready to make a compromise with a friend today, as it will be the only way to get anything close to what you want without ticking them off. Why create tensions when you can think of a way for everyone to get what they want? It’s not difficult for you to see things from another perspective, so try to see things from their point of view — and have some compassion. This is a time in your life for working for everyone’s best interests, not to compete for a bigger slice of the pie.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Unless it’s the big boss dictating a firm rule, you don’t have to obey anyone except yourself today. If people are trying to put restrictions on what you can do, work your way around them! You are the one in control of your life, and it’s the right time to remind yourself of this face. Point your ship wherever you want it to go, and start off on your journey. Just fulfill your own goals right now — worry about following all the rules later.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Becoming more involved in the life of another person can be a tricky thing — you don’t want to share too much too soon, but you don’t want to hold back when there’s a magical opportunity to really connect. This delicate balance is something you can easily achieve if just you take things slowly! If you give yourself — and give them — the space and time necessary to get used to changes, all will go very smoothly. Just don’t rush it. They aren’t going anywhere and neither are you.


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

There is far too much up in the air right now for you to barrel ahead with your plans — excited about them as you may be. So instead, you’ll have to figure out a way to curb your enthusiasm. One excellent idea is to find out what your friends are up to. One of them has some exciting stuff going on, and they would like your help or advice. Training your mind on someone else’s goals for a while will help keep it off your own. Distraction can be a very useful tool to keep yourself centered.


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): You are going to be looking very good today, both in terms of your prospects and your physical appearance. People are noticing your great big smile more than ever. You’re one step closer to a goal you’ve been working very hard for — and miles away from the bad habits in your past. It is a good day to reward yourself with a nice pat on the back and maybe even a little splurge on yourself, just to keep you motivated to stick to your winning routine.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

Today, it looks like you will finally be able to close the door on past issues at work or school. That water is finally going to be under the bridge and part of your memories. Try not to dwell on things that have gone before — it’s not healthy, and it’s just not any fun! Right now you need to set your sights on a new fun adventure. Start planning your next vacation, your next date, or just your next nap! It’s time to schedule something to look forward to, because your future is bright.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Resisting temptation isn’t going to be difficult for you today! Your self-control is at an all time high, mostly because you are finally starting to see the benefits of all your efforts. You like this feeling — it’s the feeling of getting a reward for doing hard work. Keep up the momentum, because you’ve come too far to let it all go now! And if you see a friend who’s struggling with their own self discipline, give them a pep talk — it will make all the difference.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): If you have a shopping trip planned for today, you might want to reschedule it. Your way with finances is a little bit messy right now and you could end up succumbing to the charms of an impulse buy! Your biggest problem is that you are losing focus — you’re not quite as organized as you used to be about tracking where every penny goes. Once you get a little bit more disciplined about balancing your checkbook and saving those receipts, you’ll be good to go again.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): There is no reason for you to be afraid to step into a new world today. Your energy won’t let you down, and your desire to experience strange and challenging events is only going to get stronger — so you have to satisfy it! There is no better way to get that ‘hey, I can do this!’ feeling than by stepping out of your comfort zone and trying a new task or hobby. So take a deep breath and dive right in — what are you waiting for? It will be an exciting day.
