AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Making connections with other cool people is going to be your full-time job today, but since when did you mind being social anyway? Keeping busy will keep you happy, so get out there and get social. Get online. Check your blog or social networking site and spend some time touching base with folks you haven’t talked to in a while. Send some funny emails and see what happens. There’s bound to be some hot news or gossip, and aren’t you just dying to know what it is? Find out.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Are you starting to feel like a doormat in one of your relationships? Like they’re walking all over you and you’re not getting half of the credit you deserve? Today, get off the ground and get out of this person’s life for a while. Show them that they need you a lot more than you need them. They will be back asking for your help soon, but by then you will have formulated the terms you expect and be able to set the boundaries that make you comfortable. You need to demand equal footing.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):
You have been making a strong, positive impression on some powerful people — and today you should start to be treated a lot better because of it. Someone is ready to give you a tougher challenge, and you are ready to take it on — especially if it involves travel or exploring new cultures. Channel any nervousness into positive energy and keep on doing what you’re doing — it’s working! The waiting might feel like torture, but you are about to get the chance you have been waiting for.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Are you paying more attention to your enemies than to your friends right now? There is a high level of jealousy around you right now, and it could develop into resentment if you don’t get back in touch with one or two friends who are still waiting to hear from you. If you don’t have enough time to really catch up with them, at least shoot them an email or text message arranging some social time with them in the future. They’re always there for you, and you need to make them a priority.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There is absolutely nothing wrong with adding some fun to a business situation — as long as you stay professional, why is it wrong to smile and laugh? You can’t take everything super seriously all of the time, it’s just not healthy! So today, try out a few silly jokes. Not only will you make everyone relax a little bit, you will encourage other people to add their personality to the conversation. It will help everyone connect on a deeper level — and help you all get a lot more done.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): It’s not selfish to want to be by yourself — it’s actually quite healthy! So if being a social butterfly is simply not high on your priority list right now, don’t be ashamed of it. Rent one of your favorite movies and get comfy on the couch tonight. Order in some food and just relax. Social-hound friends may not understand this inward phase you’re going through, but they will accept it — they’ll have to! You need to be honest with your needs. People appreciate it.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
Clear out your schedule and set aside your expectations — this is going to be a fickle kind of day, and you need to be as flexible as possible. It’s a day to toss out the rule book and just let things go along their merry way. You won’t be disappointed. But if you struggle against the tide of the day and stubbornly try to stick to what you had planned, you’ll experience a lot of frustration. Become more passive, and you will learn an awful lot about the world around you.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): All of your plans are going to go perfectly today — and if any obstacles do appear, they will be the kind that are going to fizzle out on their own soon enough. So the only way you can fall into a bad mood today is if you let your mind wander to problems that you can’t fix. Dwell on things beyond your control, and you could start feeling blue. Instead, let yourself be happy. Keep your mind on all the good news in your life right now — there is so much of it!
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
You’ve been pulling hard in a tug of war with someone, but today it might be wise for you to just let go of the rope — and send the other person flying. By switching up the balance of things, you are sure to end up on top. If all you want to do is win, there are other ways to get that victory than to exhaust yourself over and over again with someone who will never give an inch. You’ve got to stop this strategy and start thinking of something new.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): It’s all about endurance today, and you’ll be able to do anything for any length of time — including sitting through that boring meeting without falling asleep, handling that dreadful blind date with effortless charm, and waiting in a long line without grumbling one bit. You have some serious strength of patience deep down inside of you, and boy will it come to your rescue today. Entertaining yourself has never been so easy. You’ll always be in your happy place, no matter where you are.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Get out in the world early today — set your alarm clock twenty minutes early and give yourself some time to walk around the block, stop for breakfast, or just read the paper while you nurse a cup of coffee. If you’ve been feeling moody and slow, this more gentle introduction to your day will help you unlock some of that energy that you need to stay motivated throughout your day. And if you can get someone to join you on this calm, early morning adventure, that’s even better.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Pretending someone is what they are not is a dangerous game. You can’t be idealistic about what someone is really about. Take off your blinders today and see that person for who they truly are. What other people have been saying hasn’t been to your liking, but it may be true. Look at the entire person, see all of their imperfections, and who knows? You might even like them more than you did before! Seeing all sides of people may be a rude awakening from a dream state, but you have to wake up some time.
