AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): A family member or long-term friend is about to make contact, and you’ll be just delighted to spend some time with them. The treat they’re in for is that you’re in such a wonderful mood that you can’t help but make everyone around you feel just as good. Whether it’s because of a professional situation that’s turned out just right, a family matter that’s brought you joy or just because the universe has been benevolent doesn’t matter. Enjoy it.

PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Your loved ones don’t ordinarily expect you to say or do highly erratic things. You tend to put their feelings right at the top of your priority list, and you never do anything that will hurt them or make them feel unimportant. Right about now, however, the universe will toss something in your direction that will be too good to refuse, even if it means acting totally out of character. Go for it.

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19): You’re good with a crowd. You know how to tell jokes, shake hands and remember names. Today you’ll very likely be doing all three. Even if it feels harder than it looks, it’s good to put yourself out there. Don’t overstrain yourself, though. Just go out there and trust your natural abilities. You might be surprised at how much easier it can be when you don’t really make an effort.

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): There is a lesson for you to learn, although it might not be evident exactly what it is for a few more days. In order to help this lesson sink in better, you need to slow the heck down! There is no need to hurry through today, even if you feel like the day’s routine offers little, if any, excitement. Perhaps the very thing you need to learn right now is to accept the imperfections of life. After all, even the least attractive flower in the garden is a miracle of nature.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There’s something out there that you really want — something you’ve been wishing to have for a long time. You’ve been saving your pennies, working overtime, depriving yourself of even the most basic of daily pleasures and flipping through catalogues to find the right deal. Well, don’t look now, but today could actually be the day you find it. Make sure you have the cash or ATM card on you and do some in-person comparison shopping.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re feeling especially chatty and friendly — which means you’ll be more easily tempted than you usually are to let a secret slide. If it’s your own secret and you don’t mind the world knowing about it, go ahead. Sharing a confidence is a great way to bond with someone. If it doesn’t only belong to you, better think twice before you have at it. Why risk a current relationship to entice a new one?

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22): You are reaching one of those critical points in a work or school situation today — when you need to stop selling your ideas and start delivering on them. The proof is in the pudding as they say, but you have got one heck of a recipe … so have no fear that people will not be impressed with your efforts. Even if the reception isn’t as dramatic as you wanted, your time is coming soon, so just keep going and keep up your confidence. You can make a difference.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Get ready for a wonderful day where the road ahead is flat, the scenery is inspiring and the people you are traveling with are extremely entertaining. You have been waiting for this phase in your life to begin for a long time — a phase where you can be yourself and not worry about editing your behavior to impress anyone. Being yourself is the most liberating feeling and it is something that will become a bigger part of your life in the very near future.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22): Get out your calendar and a big eraser — some schedule changes may be necessary today. You won’t have to be more flexible than you want to be, so hold firm on certain deadlines and try not to compromise too much. There is a lot of confident energy around you today, but you may be too distracted by insecurities to grab hold of it. Try bluffing your way through the morning; once you get the hang of a healthy ego, it should start to come more naturally.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): You should be able to sense something new starting today — the efforts you have made over the past several months are finally starting to create exciting changes. Get ready for more responsibilities and a greater sense of security in your life. Do not let your ambitions get the better of you right now; you can let other people get ahead of you and not suffer for it, so be generous and let other people have their way. It will take nothing away from you to give to others.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): It’s not universally true that opposites attract, but you’ve been noticing some hot magnetic energy between two very different (and very single) people in your life. You are in a position to put them in the same room together — are you up for the matchmaking task? Follow your gut, and if you’re ready to connect these hot dots, do it!

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Everyone who knows and loves hard-working you expects to be without you every now and then, even when you’ve made plans, if and when duty calls. So when it calls now, your job will be to do the right thing and make a call of your own — an apologetic, polite call to the person you’ll be disappointing, letting them know that you’re just as sad about all this. A rain check that’s set in stone wouldn’t hurt either, of course.
