AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Try to spend some time interacting with the few people who don’t always agree with everything you say. Whether they hail from different backgrounds, cultures or religions than you, they see the world from a different perspective — and it can be very interesting to hear what they have to say about recent events. At the very least, it will be a good learning experience. When you only hang out with like-minded people, you miss out on some opportunities.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): If you are thrilled with a new relationship, today is the right day to start putting more effort into encouraging its growth. And while emails are convenient, they aren’t the best way to stay connected — nothing can replace the sound of your voice and the look on your face. So get together with them in person to create a better environment for encouraging clear communication. Show them that they are important to you by giving them the most valuable thing you have: Your time.


ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

The little emotional obstacles that have been making a new relationship complicated are behind you — and today you two can really gain some ground. Make sure you spend some quality time with this person and try to spend it in face to face situations. Talking on the phone or texting will do in a pinch to keep you two connected, but right now you both need to soak up each other’s energy if you really want to cement things. Show them that you are serious about them.


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Your new-found happiness can bring joy to a lot of other people today. They appreciate this good news almost as much as you do, you know! So spread the good word and let everyone in on what has been making you smile lately. You’ll be amazed at how supportive they will be. Reaching out to other people like this connects you more closely to them — and it ensures that there will always be someone there to reach out and share happiness with you some day.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stories from the past are great places to find inspiration for your future, so start a few conversations with family members soon. Ask some probing questions and try to learn as much as you can about who you used to be — from their perspective. Some of what they say will probably surprise you, and some of what they say will definitely flatter you. But everything they tell you is the truth. Count yourself lucky that you have so many people who care so much for you.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): There is a place and a time to be diplomatic, but today ain’t it. You need to flex your muscles and take control — all of this nice stuff is keeping people from arguing, but it’s not helping get anything done. You need progress. And to get it, you need to push your agenda. Don’t worry — people around you are going to be more receptive to your suggestions than you think. They’re getting frustrated with the lack of headway, too. So spring your ideas on them as soon as you can.


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

Just because you are right about something today doesn’t mean that everyone else is wrong. You’ve got to be magnanimous about your opinions and understand that there are many different ways to see an issue. If you don’t, then people are going to start avoiding you like the plague. No one likes to hang out with someone who doesn’t respect the ideas of others. So resist the urge to gloat or rub your victory in anyone’s face. Being arrogant is a very effective way to ruin your reputation.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): It might feel like the rest of the world (and the people in it) don’t have much to offer you right now — but try not to spend the entire day by yourself. Getting involved in smaller groups will be bearable, so don’t skip out on a social event you’ve agreed to attend just because you don’t think you’ll have fun. If you try to have a good time, you will. It’s just the bigger events like concerts and major parties that might not be a good fit for you, for now.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

A friend of yours has been walking on the wild side for a bit too long — you might want to give them a reality check today before they start taking things too far. While it’s not your job to tell other people how to live their life, you’d be shirking your responsibilities as a friend if you didn’t voice your concerns — in a non-judgmental, supportive way, of course. There’s no telling how they will react, but that shouldn’t stop you from saying something.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Today, fresh air is the best treatment for whatever ails you, from a blue mood to a headache. So get out there into the wide-open outdoors and breathe deeply! Being in a physically expansive space will help you expand your mind, as well. You’re more interested in a very distant-seeming goal than ever before. And if the weather isn’t hospitable, then open up your mind by talking to someone who disagrees with you on a lot of things. Challenge your beliefs and you’ll find new a passion for them.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Your popularity has been soaring lately, but today it might have to come back down to earth — at least for a while. There will be a situation where you just won’t be able to oblige people as much as they would like you to. You’re flexible, but you can’t bend over backwards for the sake of someone else’s happiness. Maybe you don’t have the time, or maybe you just don’t think it’s the right thing to do. Either way, stand up for yourself. But be prepared to make someone frown. They’ll get over it.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Your imperfections are unique, and they do have positive affects to your life — if you will only let yourself see that! You know how to set your own parameters and come up with something extraordinary, and that kind of creativity does not come along very often. Today you’ll see for yourself that it’s a huge waste of time to try to be perfect all the time. Besides, there’s too much conformity in perfection, and who needs to conform? Embrace yourself — warts and all.
