VIRGO 23 AUG – 22 SEP It can be a time of in­creased deal­ings with cor­po­rate busi­ness, in­sur­ance, taxes or in­her­i­tance. You may have in­tu­itive in­sight into busi­ness or pro­fes­sional af­fairs and want to or­ga­nize new meth­ods or re­struc­tur­ing. You can be aware of po­lit­i­cal and pro­fes­sional power struggles and in­trigues. There could be some dras­tic and ir­rev­o­ca­ble changes in your pro­fes­sional en­vi­ron­ment. A prof­itable part-time busi­ness has come to your at­ten­tion. You seek the trust and con­fi­dence of oth­ers and must be pre­pared to com­pete in busi­ness trans­ac­tions. You be­gin con­struc­tive ef­forts to im­prove what­ever you feel needs im­prove­ment. You have a deep­ened emo­tional sen­si­tiv­ity and in­sights drawn from mem­ory. This evening is fa­vor­able for read­ing and study.

LIBRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT It’s a pos­i­tive time to look for em­ploy­ment or find­ing sup­port as well as for learn­ing about the ways you can im­prove the fi­nances. You have an in­creased con­cen­tra­tion and per­cep­tion into the mo­tives of oth­ers. Now is a fa­vor­able time for any re­search or study. If there are undis­closed ac­tiv­i­ties, you will know just how to as­suage any prob­lems. Vis­it­ing with a friend this af­ter­noon you may en­joy plan­ning a wed­ding, a shower or a birth­day party for some­one spe­cial to the two of you. In­sight is avail­able to work through de­tails and share thoughts on how to han­dle any com­plaints or sit­u­a­tions that may arise. You dis­cuss the seat­ing and the food and the at­mos­phere, etc. Your happy out­look makes you a very pop­u­lar per­son.

SCORPIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV You have a great deal of con­fi­dence to­day. Your abil­ity to get the most out of other peo­ple in order to ac­com­plish a project is al­ways strong. How­ever, you may be un­in­ten­tion­ally not giv­ing oth­ers their fair share of you. A co­worker with health prob­lems may confide in you to­day. You are able to help and the two of you will not have to be afraid of work prob­lems be­cause you can help guide this per­son in the right di­rec­tion. This af­ter­noon, you may be tem­per­a­men­tal and re­ally need a lit­tle rest. Get feed­back from room­mates or fam­ily mem­bers on ways to im­prove liv­ing con­di­tions. This is a good time to try to foster a sense of to­geth­er­ness. You should try hard to squelch the de­sire to do ev­ery­thing by yourself. There are con­ver­sa­tions about travel.

SAGITTARIUS 22 NOV – 21 DEC Your am­bi­tion and self-con­trol are driven by the en­thu­si­asm you feel. You can ac­com­plish much now to­ward your goals through care­ful, hard work. Of­fi­cials and peo­ple in au­thor­ity give you their sup­port–you can deal ef­fec­tively with busi­ness and pro­fes­sional af­fairs. Work with tools or ma­chines moves along rapidly and smoothly. You can make progress in man­age­rial and ad­min­is­tra­tive ar­eas. Health im­proves as ten­sions ease and ther­a­pies can have a ben­e­fi­cial ef­fect. Your in­tu­itive and imag­i­na­tive pow­ers are stim­u­lated and you can fo­cus on worth­while goals and pro­duc­tive en­ter­prises. The time is ex­cel­lent for psy­cho­log­i­cal, psy­chic or spiritual stud­ies. Va­ca­tions and artis­tic pur­suits can be in­spir­ing. Friends are sup­port­ive and stim­u­lat­ing.

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 19 JAN A spe­cific woman can be a pow­er­ful in­flu­ence in the work­place. If you are new, guid­ance is very help­ful; if you are a long-time pro­fes­sional in your field of work, you may be the one to do the guid­ing. This is a day of one per­son help­ing an­other and the peo­ple you may not be ami­able with to­day are the ones you will need to­mor­row. There are im­por­tant so­cial and pro­fes­sional agree­ments now. You may also find yourself in­volved in some po­lit­i­cal is­sue. The only way you will gain sup­port­ers how­ever, is to keep lis­ten­ing and take notes while oth­ers talk. Ath­letic fer­vor is high to­day. This af­ter­noon is a great time to jog around the park or shoot some bas­kets, per­haps with a friend. Your fam­ily re­la­tion­ships are im­prov­ing.

AQUARIUS 20 JAN – 18 FEB There are op­por­tu­ni­ties for re­gen­er­a­tion through per­sonal power. Op­por­tu­ni­ties are avail­able to make the world around you a bet­ter place for all and you are the driv­ing force. It will be quite easy to bring about the changes you want and you should use this abil­ity to ben­e­fit yourself and oth­ers. You can use this cy­cle to achieve pro­fes­sional suc­cess, in­crease your fi­nances or sim­ply straighten out ar­eas of your life that have given you prob­lems in the past. Your po­ten­tial for suc­cess in any area of your life is lim­ited only by the op­tions you do not give yourself. Now is a good time for ad­ven­tur­ous travel, sports, out­doors and con­tact with for­eign­ers. Be alert–you might be able to swing a good deal on an im­por­tant pur­chase this evening.

PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR There could be some tense com­mu­ni­ca­tions around the work­place to­day, which could con­flict with your own plans. Wait awhile and hear ev­ery­one’s opin­ions be­fore you make any com­ments. You might be pleased to find the frus­tra­tions calm with hon­est feed­back. The re­sults of th­ese con­ver­sa­tions may have you look­ing for more op­por­tu­ni­ties to solve prob­lems. You can make steady progress to­ward your ca­reer goals with a con­cen­trated ef­fort on the work at hand. With in­tegrity, you will en­joy your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and mean­ing­ful am­bi­tions. You may feel strongly that this is a good time for you. You can pay off old debts and obli­ga­tions soon. This af­ter­noon may call for a shop­ping ex­pe­di­tion–you are very or­ga­nized and in­tu­itively know the best buys.

ARIES 21 MAR – 19 APR Your in­ter­ests turn to­ward the sci­en­tific and hu­man­i­tar­ian thoughts where your work is con­cerned. Your per­sonal charm seems to have in­creased re­cently. You tend to take more ini­tia­tive in so­cial sit­u­a­tions and team­work. You give a lot of at­ten­tion to im­prov­ing your per­sonal ap­pear­ance. You may seek self­ex­pres­sion through mu­sic, or other artis­tic means. You are ap­pre­ci­ated and could very pos­si­bly be­come some­one that is re­spected and will hold a high of­fice. You are be­com­ing more en­er­getic and com­pet­i­tive and you find it a lot of fun. You have plenty of ini­tia­tive to put any num­ber of your plans into ac­tion. Em­pha­size your per­son­al­ity, skill or pro­duc­tiv­ity; be aware of any reck­less ac­tiv­ity. An el­der per­son may be­come your men­tor.

TAURUS 20 APR – 20 MAY You will be work­ing hard to achieve spe­cial­ized knowl­edge that will give you the freedom to ad­vance your pro­fes­sional goals. You may ap­ply yourself to ex­ten­sive job re­train­ing. You may pur­sue for­mal stud­ies, es­pe­cially in his­tory, teach­ing, re­li­gion, law or phi­los­o­phy. You could pub­lish your most am­bi­tious and dif­fi­cult work. You could also de­cide to em­bark on stren­u­ous work to earn some fast money in order to travel. What­ever you do, you will de­velop a per­sonal phi­los­o­phy of life as you ad­dress dif­fi­cult moral, reli­gious and eth­i­cal ques­tions. With ef­fort, you will even­tu­ally at­tain the tol­er­ance, loy­alty, honor and good­will that you seek. You will be fo­cused on the larger is­sues of your life and will be­gin to see suc­cess­ful re­sults.

GEMINI 21 MAY – 21 JUN You have in­creased self-con­fi­dence to try new things that are dar­ing, un­usual and in­ven­tive as well as plot­ting your path to greater in­de­pen­dence. It is a time for change, stim­u­lat­ing friends and new ac­quain­tances. Fa­vor­able en­ter­prises in the tech­nol­ogy and en­ter­tain­ment fields are pos­si­ble. You may de­velop an in­ter­est in spiritual stud­ies and self-im­prove­ment. You feel op­ti­mistic, tol­er­ant and se­cure. You may find travel to be re­ju­ve­nat­ing, bring­ing re­newal to your sense of op­ti­mism and spiritual growth. You can dis­cover hid­den truths and wisdom once the old think­ing is set aside. You make steady progress to­ward your ca­reer and so­cial goals now. Your so­cial life can be happy and stim­u­lat­ing in the most pos­i­tive of ways. You will meet in­ter­est­ing peo­ple.

CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL This can be a pro­gres­sive cy­cle of un­ex­pected and fa­vor­able change, bring­ing you a greater choice of in­de­pen­dent ac­tiv­i­ties. Your in­ven­tive en­er­gies are steady and the time is fa­vor­able for hi-tech en­ter­prises. Now is a fa­vor­able time for job change or a move. Friends and col­leagues tend to give you their ap­proval–busi­ness af­fairs go smoothly. You have in­creased self-con­fi­dence to try new things that are dar­ing, un­usual and in­ven­tive and you work to pur­sue your goals. Any health prob­lems that come to your at­ten­tion will have a cu­ri­ous an­ti­dote and you may want to study al­ter­na­tive health tech­niques for fu­ture needs. An ac­quain­tance will help you and this may be the op­por­tu­nity to take on a new friend­ship.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG You feel an ex­panded sense of self-con­fi­dence and you are en­cour­aged. You may re­ceive ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the goals you have at­tained and you may broaden your con­tacts with suc­cess­ful, pro­fes­sional peo­ple. It’s a good time to im­prove your ed­u­ca­tion or broaden your ex­pe­ri­ence through travel. You may be overly op­ti­mistic in most things but con­sider work­ing on a calmer ap­proach so that if you are not al­lowed a leave at this time, there will be a bet­ter time in a few months. You can feel in­creased self-con­fi­dence and courage. You com­mand the sup­port of oth­ers through lead­er­ship and gen­eros­ity. You take plea­sure through phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, such as sports, games and danc­ing. Later to­day you share an en­cour­ag­ing word with a friend.
