AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18):

When someone you are close to asks you to do something that seems like it compromises your values today, think twice — especially if they ask you to reevaluate the values that are keeping you from doing what they want you to do. What you should really do is reevaluate why this person is in your life! Just like you get rid of habits that are bad for you, you need to get rid of the people who are bad for you. You don’t have to be mean, but you do have to do what’s right for you.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20):

Whether you are aware of it or not, your career is going through an interesting transformation right about now. To gain some insight into these changes, talk to one or two co-workers about where they think you’re headed — chances are, they know more about your trajectory than you do! There has been gossip, and you need to get in on it. You should get prepared to do a lot more reading and research on how to make the most of the connections you are building.


horoscopesARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

Someone who is standing by your side during this weird time is going to stay by your side, so let go of any doubts you have about them today. However, you do need to watch out for their creeping frustration. They are more impatient than you are, and could use a dose of your perspective to calm them down. Show them that there is a light at the end of this tunnel. In doing so, you’ll help mellow them out — and remind yourself that things are going to get better, too.


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20):

Like-minded people are all over the place today, and surprising connections will be popping up all over the place. Everyone will be agreeing with whatever you say — even that one coworker or friend who always loves to play Devil’s advocate! Every scheme you think up has legs, but it’s up to you to make sure they get off on the right foot! Don’t be too ambitious about your goals. Go for things you know you can attain, first. Then move on to the goals you only hope you can attain.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Examine how much energy you are putting toward the idealistic, the fanciful and the downright playful. You need to deal with your career, family, and other serious stuff — but you also need to make room in your life for goofing off. Dreaming about change doesn’t always bring it, but it does at least offer you hope and provide creative inspiration. It’s not a waste of time to imagine what life would be like if things were different — it’s a good way to keep your mind more flexible.


CANCER (June 21-July 22):

You’ve got a very sharp mind, but even you have your ‘off’ days. When you are off your game, it’s wisest to know your limitations. Focus on simpler tasks that require less attention to details. Remember: If you’re feeling extra foggy this morning, it’s a sign that you shouldn’t do any detail-oriented tasks today. Social activities should go very well for you, however, so if a party or other type of event is on your calendar, this is the perfect day for it!


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

In an awkward situation today, others may react emotionally — you should have a few tissues on hand to offer anyone who loses their composure. This incident will give you an interesting insight into someone who you thought would never open up and reveal anything so human and vulnerable. This revelation will stir up some confusing feelings for you. But try not to let them carry you too far down the path of emotional what-if, because there isn’t as much ‘there’ there as you might think.


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22):

Do you feel like you are being pushed or pulled by someone who means a lot to you? This relationship issue must be addressed today. Anyone who is pushing you to make a decision or to commit when you are not ready must learn that you will do things when you are ready to do them, and not a minute sooner. Ask them if they can give you more time — the chances are good that they will. You mean too much for them not to give you the space and respect you need.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

Winning the battle is not nearly as important as just making an effort to win, right now, so push yourself, but not too hard. You don’t have to prove yourself to others, now. You just have to keep doing what is right for you. You have a deep well of untapped potential, but there is no hurry to bring it up to the surface. Just take your time and appreciate the smaller things in life. Those mountains you want to climb aren’t going anywhere anytime soon!


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21):

You are feeling closed off from the world now, which means that all of your creativity, beauty and intricacies are hidden from view. Keep in mind that not everyone has the energy, attitude or drive to pry open your lid. They’ll only try for so long before giving up and giving you space. If you want to be alone, so be it. But if you are waiting for someone to help you break out into the world, you’re wasting time. You need to break yourself out of your shell if you really want to connect.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21):

Answers are easy to come by for you today, in part because you are listening to others more closely than usual. Paying attention to what is going on around you does more than entertain you — it will supply you with important lessons that you can apply to your own life. Your ability to read subtle signals will also come in handy today — you could easily gain extra insight into a situation by following your gut and taking a few calculated risks.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19):

Sometimes, it isn’t totally obvious when you have made progress in a relationship. They other person doesn’t give out grades, so it can be hard to tell if you’ve become more important to them or not. There are only, from time to time, little tests. Today, you’ll be feeling good when you are able to come to the rescue for a friend at the very last minute. You will prove that you are dependable and generous — in short, you’ll prove what a good partner you can be.
