AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): While your pals might not be able to fix your problems, they can at least figure out a way to put a smile on your face. So when the going gets rough today, just reach out to your friends — that’s what they are there for! You’ve been a bit melancholy lately, but that isn’t necessarily anything to worry about. Everyone experiences the doldrums — that’s part of life. You need to feel whatever you’re feeling and work your way through those painful emotions. You’ll come out on the other end shortly. Phew!

PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Still in the mood for love? Well, it’s no wonder. You may, however, also need to tend to a little thing called earning a living. Don’t let it slide; you never know when you’ll want the security. Besides, if you’re really in love, won’t you want to have a couple of nickels to rub together to impress your dear one? Especially since you’ve been thinking about how to spoil them for days now.

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):
You’ve always felt that it is better to keep your mouth closed and appear a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. At the moment, however, you have a lot on your mind — and in your heart — and you really want to let it all out. So stop worrying about seeming a fool. First off, you won’t. The only thing you’ll seem like is a fool in love — and there’s nothing better.

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Your ability to focus is the stuff of legends, and that goes double when you’re on a mission — like right now, for example. What might that mission be? To outshine your coworkers so that you’ll be able to get that raise you’ve been bucking for. There’s no need to lose any sleep over it. Keep up like you have been and you’ll win what you want, hands down. Just don’t let any secrets slide.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s officially time to reconnect with your favorite playmates. They’ve been missing you, you’ve been missing them and the few phone calls you’ve had time to make just aren’t cutting it. Make time for them tonight. You’re guaranteed to have some serious fun — and isn’t that what life is all about? Oh, but do make sure your chores are done, if only so you can have a guilt-free evening.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Just when you thought you might actually be able to see things clearly for a while, it turns out it is not quite time. And you’ll come to that realization via a startling message that arrives this afternoon. Now, this doesn’t mean you should be expecting bad news or that you’ll be disappointed with what happens. Not at all. You might, however, want to write your plans in pencil. For now, at least.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
It’s not that your mouth will be totally out of control — well, not today, anyway. Tomorrow, however, is another story. Today, you’ll have a preview of coming attractions, but you’ll still manage to stay in possession of most of your verbal faculties. That is if you want to possess them. But when you’re sufficiently angry or passionately involved, like you may be tomorrow? Well, that’s different.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Shopping? Did somebody say shopping? You’re all over that suggestion. In fact, you’ve probably already tried to coerce at least one pal into dashing off to the mall for the day. You woke up this morning in the mood to grab your checkbook, raid your piggy bank, and cancel your appointments. Sound serious? It sure is. And if all else fails, you may find yourself sitting at the computer tonight with your plastic close by.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
Buck authority? If it’s called for, you’re ready to put up your dukes and fight it out. This one issue you’ve been dealing with lately has really gotten under your skin, and you’re willing to do what it takes to make your point. Well, good for you — because you’re right. And you know it, too, don’t you? Well, then, don’t give up and don’t give in. Keep at it. You’re almost there.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): You’re just about due for something totally out of the ordinary. You’ve turned down all kinds of fabulous temptations lately, in just about every category. But just as you start to wonder why, the universe will deliver you a one-of-a-kind reward designed especially for you. Don’t question it and don’t worry about why it’s there. You’ll definitely want someone fun on board for this.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): No, you’re not sick, but you can pull off a convincing act — on the phone, at least — if you receive an offer that’s more attractive than putting in your time at work. Just consider whether it’s worth it first, and be sure it won’t hurt your job standing. Otherwise, have a great time. And work on that cough. Remember, you still have some work to finish.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): If it’s on your mind and in your heart, it’s also going to be written all over your face for the next several days — which means this coming weekend will be quite a blowout. Make your plans now, but allow for a bit of wiggle room. Things could change. You won’t mind at all, though, and heaven knows your companion won’t be mad either. Surprised, maybe — no, definitely — and delighted, too. But not mad.
