AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Tantalizing social invitations seem to hold a promise for a new love connection, but don’t get sucked in by big promises. Be skeptical of new people on the scene, as they are not what they appear. A quiet night in could actually yield a much more rewarding experience, even if you spend it alone. There is a certain undeniable freedom in creating a sense of mystery about yourself, and you do that more effectively when you refuse social invitations than when you accept them.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): On days like today, you should only feel comfortable counting on yourself for support. It’s not that getting other people’s encouragement will be impossible, it’s just that they are awfully busy working on their own stuff. You’re not likely to find anyone willing to stop what they are doing to lend you a hand. But no worries — you can continue on this path alone, and you can reach your goals. It just might take a little longer. And in the end, you’ll be smarter for it.


ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

You can make huge strides forward today — if you let your ambition take over. It can lead you to a success you have deserved for a long time, but you’re going to have to swallow your pride in order to follow it. When you show you can be a team player and work for the greater good, those in power take notice — and they will be impressed by your selflessness. Don’t be surprised if some day quite soon they ask you to step up and take on bigger responsibilities.


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Today a bright spotlight will be aimed right at you, so it’s important for you to take your time and plan out all of your actions thoroughly. You should definitely not rush ahead and just blurt out whatever you’re thinking — and don’t push forward with any big plans just because you’re in a hurry to see results. The people you are surrounded by are very open to helping you, but they won’t be able to keep up if you keep pressing to go further faster.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your creativity is stronger than most people’s creativity right now, so you should take the initiative in the group when and if new projects need to get started today. It shouldn’t be too hard for you to take the steering wheel, anyway, because folks know a powerhouse of ideas when they see one! They would rather step back and see what you can come up with than compete for power. It’s time to celebrate your ability to contribute fresh, innovative and thought-provoking ideas to the discussion.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Just because you have a vivid idea of what you want in life doesn’t mean that you are going to get it any faster than if you were totally clueless. So if you’re wondering when the rest of your life is going to begin, relax! You need to see that every moment of your life is your life, so stop focusing so much on what you want and savor what you have. There is a lot to be grateful for, and you’ll have a wonderful day if you start making a list of all those things. Be happy.


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

If you can, try to surround yourself with people who are down to earth and grounded today. These people have the kind of focus you need right now — they can teach you something new about how to appreciate the smaller things in life and have a good time doing anything. These mellow types of people may not have the flashiest toys or the hottest new clothes, but they have a lot of contentedness in their life, and you could learn a lot from them.


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): It’s not an ideal day for you to be working in large groups today. You’re feeling especially combative, with little if any patience for people who aren’t as on the ball as you are. This is a much better day for you to make progress on a solo project like cleaning the house or running errands. Doing something that doesn’t require input or cooperation from other people will help you feel productive without having to deal with people who frustrate you.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

Coming up with great ideas will be your forte today — you can generate solutions to many of the problems that have been plaguing your circle. Your unique way of looking at things is your best asset, because while other people waste time scratching their heads trying to come up with an idea, you simply turn things on their head and find a new approach. This ability will make you very popular and very busy today. You’re going to be a superhero to some super frustrated people.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): It doesn’t really matter whether or not you get what you want when you see so many others who don’t have anything at all. You have a strong urge to be of service to someone today, and there should be no shortage of candidates for your goodwill. You can be a positive force in people’s lives, even the people who don’t know you. Whether you spend your weekend picking up trash along the beach, donating your clothing to a shelter, or just writing checks to a worthy cause, you can make a difference.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): You can’t keep a good secret right now — your quiet little romance is going to get a lot of attention very soon. Are you ready for the scrutiny? Suddenly everyone wants to know what’s going on between the two of you, what’s next and where this thing is going — and you might not even know the answers! Feel free to take a step back and protect your privacy. Your life is no one’s business but your own. Friends won’t be put off if you clam up — they will understand.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): For some time now, you’ve been promising yourself some downtime — a few days or even hours when you cut back on your workload and give yourself a chance to relax. So exactly when are you going to come through with that promise? Today, you’ve got to start. Cancel or postpone whatever you can and give yourself a block of empty time. Remind yourself what it feels like to have nothing to do! You won’t be bored, you’ll be relieved. And you will finally get a chance to recharge your batteries!
