Rewarding days make up for all the stress that comes with those chal­leng­ing days. This is a rewarding day in which you can grab the at­ten­tion or en­joy the ben­e­fits. You are at your most prac­ti­cal when it comes to work­ing with oth­ers. You have an ob­jec­tive and rea­son­able point of view in many sub­jects. You may be the one that is asked to travel to a for­eign coun­try and sway the au­di­ence to pur­chase what your com­pany sells. If you have been think­ing about a new deal, sys­tem or project, it is im­por­tant to speak up about it now-be­fore you are asked to travel. A pack­age on your doorstep this even­ing may have got­ten lost or mis­guided. You will know just what to do and may even find a pleas­ant sur­prise at the end of your search.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22)

While it would be easy to get into po­si­tions that would en­cour­age long con­ver­sa­tions, you will push to fin­ish any projects for now. If you do not want to work over­time this even­ing, it might be wise to en­joy sev­eral short breaks so as to meet a par­tic­u­lar dead­line, in­stead of the usual long lunch. You may find that you have de­vel­oped a knack for be­ing in the right place at the right time, at least for today. You may over­hear some very good news that will mean more busi­ness. Much is ac­com­plished and you may even win over the ad­mi­ra­tion of oth­ers for your de­ter­mi­na­tion and fo­cus. You may be the cook tonight. Con­sider a light meal, per­haps fish.

Pleas­ant com­pany and amus­ing sto­ries put a pleas­ant end to this very busy day.

Leo (July 23-Au­gust 22)

There is an open door to suc­cess and your will­ing­ness to travel just may be the ticket. Con­nec­tions with peo­ple on a grand scale, for ex­am­ple, play a big part in your life now. This grand scale may mean that you are headed for a con­ven­tion, outof-state or out-of-town. Per­haps you are teach­ing an un­usu­ally large class via the in­ter­net. What­ever the case, you en­joy in­volv­ing your­self with the changes that have taken place this year. A roller­coaster year may mean things will set­tle down a bit for next year and they may do just that. This even­ing you may want to look over your goals and the sched­ule you have made for your­self that shows what you have earned and the goals you have met. You will be pleased at your progress!

Virgo (Au­gust 23-Septem­ber 22)

Learn tech­niques that will re­lieve stress and you will be help­ing your­self to live longer and feel more at ease. Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and out­side pres­sures are just a part of life but mov­ing for­ward and know­ing when to ac­cept change will aid you in main­tain­ing a sense of well-be­ing. Your pos­i­tive outlook is a plus! At home you will have the op­por­tu­nity to weed out the things that do not serve you well. This may in­clude the things you have held onto, think­ing you will use them one day. Con­sider hav­ing a garage sale this next week­end . . . There is plenty of time to cull through your clos­ets and cab­i­nets and pre­pare a price for your items. It is al­ways a good time to pull in a lit­tle ex­tra money. You may even get some co­op­er­a­tion from your fam­ily mem­bers. The power of or­ga­ni­za­tion on a so­cial scale re­gard­ing busi­ness or per­haps pol­i­tics seems to take on a lot of at­ten­tion as you en­ter into a new cy­cle. You could be work­ing for a char­ity or­ga­ni­za­tion and your cre­ative in­put is re­mark­able. Dur­ing a meet­ing to find a new slant or some at­ten­tion mag­net for ob­tain­ing con­tri­bu­tions, you sketch a few ideas and peo­ple re­spond in pos­i­tive ways. Re­mem­ber, this could also be in pol­i­tics so you will be more in­formed than most and can rep­re­sent or speak for your del­e­gate. Re­mem­ber that tiny causes can lead to big ef­fects. Pro­found changes are hap­pen­ing on the per­sonal level-psy­cho­log­i­cal and per­haps phys­i­cal as well. It is as though you are trans­form­ing your­self into a pop­u­lar and in­flu­en­tial per­son. Healthy com­mu­ni­ca­tions today cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties to open up to new ideas or thoughts. Now is a good time to re­think the path to your goals or per­haps to re­vise your goals. This could only be a need to fine-tune the end re­sult that you want to achieve. You may find that your ideas and thoughts run counter to what is go­ing on around you, re­sult­ing in a lack of sup­port. There could be changes that re­quire young peo­ple to take a part in de­vel­op­ing the end re­sults. Men­tal pat­terns and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills play a ma­jor role in your life. They can change things for­ever-so make sure you de­velop your high­est potential in these ar­eas. A neigh­bor or si­b­ling could un­dergo some kind of transformation or your neigh­bor­hood may be in a re­de­vel­op­ment phase.

Aquar­ius (Jan­uary 20- Fe­bru­ary 18)

Pro­fes­sional ad­vice can bring you some in­ter­est­ing in­sights. This is a time dur­ing which you are un­usu­ally mo­ti­vated or driven in new and un­ex­pected di­rec­tions. You could re­ceive un­ex­pected back­ing and, in general, your ef­forts are suc­cess­ful in reach­ing new heights of orig­i­nal­ity. This is a good day, with lots of en­ergy and ambition. This is the day to start new projects or push for­ward with those al­ready in mo­tion. If you are look­ing for a new home, con­sider an old one to re­make like you want it. You will find lots of ar­eas for stor­age and won­der­ful tall rooms for the plants that are so nec­es­sary in re-sup­ply­ing us with fresh oxy­gen af­ter a day at work. Think about how a four-poster bed would look-op­por­tu­nity arises.

A lit­tle di­et­ing is usu­ally all you need. Today and tomorrow there are en­er­gies present that are work­ing in your fa­vor to­ward good health. A re­la­tion­ship prob­lem can be solved through some new insight you re­ceive be­fore you be­gin your work­day. You may de­cide to set aside some time this next week­end for just you and your sweet­heart. It can be a won­der­fully ro­man­tic sort of time. Your work­day is suc­cess­ful. Some sort of in­ves­tiga­tive work, jour­nal­ism or de­tec­tive work clears away a lot of old ques­tions that the com­pany you work for may need to know. Not ev­ery­one does the de­tec­tive sort of job, but the en­er­gies are avail­able for any­one want­ing to un­cover the truth or to dis­cover just how some im­por­tant equip­ment or pro­gram works.
