AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Life always involves a balancing act between how things are and how you’d like them to be. On the one hand, you have to recognize reality for what it is. On the other hand, you have to be able to visualize ways it could be better. The thing to avoid is imagining reality as something that it isn’t. You won’t fall into the trap of wishful believing as long as you’re vigilant.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Sometimes the old way of doing things just doesn’t cut it anymore. Whether you’re a line cook who’s sick of using dull knives or a pastry chef who wants an oven that doesn’t burn the croissants, gosh darn it, today’s a good day to start insisting on change. It’s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease, you know. And nobody likes a burnt croissant.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19): Take a deep breath, because respiration, as everyone who’s done breathing exercises knows, contributes greatly to inspiration. If you’re already inspired, go ahead and aspire to make your ideas real. You can do it (especially if you’re keeping your thinking well oxygenated) and chances are a heck of a lot greater than average that folks are going to want to help you out. This could be a pretty exciting one!
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Today is a good day to check in with your network. You might want to send a few test signals out to see if there are any missing links, faulty relays, broken wires or downed poles. But make sure everybody knows there’s no real emergency — after all, don’t forget what happened to the boy who cried wolf. No, what you want to do is gently explore the state of things. And if you find that your networks aren’t working so well, get to work fixing the problem.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Sharper than ever, your vision will be able to show you what changes you need to make today. Don’t worry about having the energy you need to see them through — right now you’re full of enough energy to do whatever you need to do. Chances are good that things will not be as dramatic or cutthroat as you fear. As long as you have conviction in what you’re doing, you will be fine. So put more energy into displaying your confidence to others.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): There are different kinds of security. There’s financial security, there’s emotional security and then there are childproof caps. There are seatbelts and there’s health insurance. There’s a strong pair of arms and there’s a strong heart. There are life vests and life preservers. There are also a whole lot of uncertainties, and not all of them have solutions. Look at where you’re secure and where you can’t be certain, and try to do your best to find some balance.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22): You and your heart are going to sit down for a little heart-to-heart. Well, okay, maybe it’s more accurate to call it a mind-to-heart. Or mind-and-body-to-heart. Whatever. You’re going to ask your heart a few hard questions and then, if your heart wants to ask you some hard questions, it gets to. Then you have to answer, and, ideally, by the end of the conversation, you two will come to a whole new understanding.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): If you have been feeling like you are in a fog lately, some very good news is coming today that will shed some light on your confusion. The clouds are parting and the sun is shining. Things are starting to become clearer, in part because you are starting to get a better idea of what you want to tackle next in life. Your goals are leading you to a better place, so follow them. Ignore any naysayers who point out risks or potential complications.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22): Try not to push too hard today; the options you will be given might all sound terribly tempting, but you cannot do everything you want to do at once. Instead of trying to go off in a hundred directions, spinning plates, and multitasking your day away, stop, take a breath and give up when you know it’s not worth your energy. It’s more important than ever to pace yourself and understand your limits. There is nothing wrong with stepping out of the rat race for one day.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Collaboration is important, but today might be the right day for a meeting of the minds. Making your ideas meld with another person’s is likely to be difficult, especially because your energy levels will be fluctuating unpredictably right now. Keep communication about what you want, and listen with a generous ear to what people want from you. Feel free to avoid the complications of a face to face meeting. Emails and phone calls will help the two of you come together.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): You understand the value of exercise. It’s not just for your body, but for your body, mind, and spirit that you jog, box, walk, do martial arts, take yoga or do whatever it is that you do. Today is a particularly good day to follow through on your drive to get in touch with each and every little tiny muscle in your entire body. You’ll feel terrific, both during and afterward.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): You’ll be most successful with an outgoing, even aggressive approach to things. You know what you want, so go get it. Politely but firmly ask anybody standing in your way to step aside. If they don’t comply, then tell them to. With that determined look in your eye, they’re bound to do what you say. Then pick up whatever you want and take it where you want to go. You’ll feel mighty powerful by the time this is all over.
