AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18):
Today, try to skip past the lifestyle or comics section of the newspaper and instead head right for the editorials and opinion. Your brain is hungrier for articulate ideas than you might realize, and you need to stimulate your current way of thinking. Pick a topic you feel strongly about, and explore what the opposition thinks. Knowing your ‘enemy’ is a great way to shore up your argument — or be educated about what you might have understood incorrectly.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20):
Today, people you have to deal with will respond a lot better to concrete examples than to ambiguous concepts. So if you need to communicate anything complicated or flirt with a particularly tough cookie, try to integrate a physical example or item in your conversation. A freshly baked chocolate chip cookie does a wonderful job of melting an icy personality, and one or two charts can help simplify a complex set of data. You should exercise your creativity as much as possible.
There might not be a lot of activity in this day, but that doesn’t mean that your mind won’t be working in high gear! You don’t always need stimulation to get excited. Right now, all the energy you need is already inside of you. It’s your choice, how this day unfolds — if you want to get up and get going, no one will stop you. And if you want to sleep in a little bit longer than usual, no one will notice. You are left to your own devices, and it should feel wonderful!
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20):
People could get whiplash after watching you today! If you’re not careful, you’ll be running back and forth, working in so many different areas that you are not likely to get much done in any one. So to keep yourself from having to hurry back and forth, you should try to tune into your slower, more deliberate nature. Pick one thing, stick with it, and then see it to its completion — or at least to a point where you can pass it off to someone else.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
It might take you a bit more energy to communicate today. The stars have put you into an introspective mood, and you won’t find very much enjoyment out of exchanging ideas with other people. Instead, you’re much more interesting in exploring your own ideas. This is a wonderful time to take some half-baked ideas from off the mental shelf and get them into full blow out mode again. Turn your phone off, and you could make some real headway into a very exciting direction.
CANCER (June 21-July 22):
It’s important to stay on your toes today — there are some possible hiccups along your regular route, and you will need to have a quick mind in order to act fast and stay on balance. A simple but necessary ingredient for your day is a good breakfast! The nutrition you give yourself as you start the day is the only foundation you’ll have to build upon, so the better you build it, the better your day will be. Staying sharp is not just about being alert — it’s about being healthy.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
Sometimes, learning something new about yourself is not the most enjoyable experience — becoming aware of a bad habit or negative trait can be a difficult thing to get over. That’s why today you’ll feel all the more delighted when what you learn about yourself is something wonderful! You’ll be infused with a great sense of pride when someone points out your polite, kind, or thoughtful behavior. You suspected you were a wonderful person, and now you can be confident about it!
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22):
If an aggressive co-worker makes a move toward taking over a responsibility that is rightfully yours, there could be big problems today. It’s not that you are feeling territorial, it’s that you have learned to protect yourself — you are the number one priority when push comes to shove, and you will likely feel a shove coming your way today. Act with respect and kindness, but guard your responsibilities. You can even play dumb if that will help you hold on to what you’ve earned.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
If you need to convince someone to change their mind today, you need to do it in a one-on-one conversation. If there are other people around, there will be too much distraction. Do be sure to deliver your message in person. Sure, an email or text might be a lot more convenient, but your words alone cannot communicate what you want them to understand right now — and eye contact will help you make a stronger connection. Drive home your meaning.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21):
This day will be going along quite smoothly for the most part, but around late afternoon some news will come your way — and it’s news that could cause you to get a little frustrated with someone you are having problems with. You should avoid conflict at all costs right now, because your emotions are close to the surface and it won’t take much to set you off. So as soon as you get wind of the news, do whatever you need to do to keep a level head.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21):
There is a lot of masculine energy coming into your life right now — one of the men you know and love is going to have a lot of influence over where you go and what you are allowed to do. This isn’t a restrictive situation — you don’t have to cater to him or convince him to let you do what you want. You won’t feel held back. Instead, he will challenge you to do what is most difficult, and inspire you to take on a tougher challenge. Listen to him and heed his advice.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19):
News flash: Your boss is not the most important person in your life! You need to adjust your priorities today in terms of who gets the most energy from you. In the long run, you are always going to remember the people who had your back, not the people who gave you that day off you wanted. Spend more time with the people who share your private jokes, and the people who tell you the truth — because it’s good for you. Put these people first today and maybe your boss will do the same.
