ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 19)

Of­ten­times, you can run into a wall, get up and con­tinue in the same di­rec­tion as if the ob­sta­cle has mys­te­ri­ously van­ished. But other times a much-needed re­al­ity check stops you in your tracks. Although you are in­tent on reach­ing your des­ti­na­tion, you may end up health­ier and hap­pier if you slow down to en­joy your­self where you are. There's no need to rush to get some­where else; count your bless­ings rather than the miles ahead.

TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 20)

Some­one's cold shoul­der might cause you to change your mind at the last minute. Once you con­sider the al­ter­na­tive ways to say what's on your mind, you can choose how to de­liver your mes­sage and pro­ceed with more cau­tion than you had at first. A mea­sured ap­proach brings the best re­sults.

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUN 20)

You are so ex­cited by all the pos­si­bil­i­ties ahead that you could lose touch with the re­la­tion­ship dy­nam­ics right in front of your nose. You ex­pect so much from your friends to­day that they don't have a chance of liv­ing up to your high ideals. Keep­ing your fan­tasies to a min­i­mum in­creases your chances of find­ing sat­is­fac­tion. Take time to ap­pre­ci­ate the peo­ple cur­rently in your life, even if they fall short of your dreams. Be­ing grate­ful for life's lit­tle bless­ings is your key to hap­pi­ness.

CAN­CER (JUN 21 – JUL 22)

You can work your­self up into a state of ag­i­ta­tion to­day be­cause you fear be­ing re­jected, es­pe­cially if you have some­thing sig­nif­i­cant to say. You wish you could keep your feel­ings to your­self so you didn't have to suf­fer the em­bar­rass­ment of pos­si­bly over­step­ping some­one else's bound­aries. How­ever, cul­ti­vat­ing re­la­tion­ships may re­quire you to take a risk now. Ac­knowl­edg­ing your vul­ner­a­bil­ity is a good first step to a mean­ing­ful con­ver­sa­tion. Your bold be­hav­ior might even sur­prise your­self.

LEO (JUL 23 – AUG 22)

A plethora of big ideas are float­ing around in your head to­day, yet it might be too soon to let oth­ers in on your thought process. There are op­tions to be con­sid­ered and plenty of work still to be done. Although you may feel a strong sense of ur­gency to push ahead now, it's wiser to con­tinue de­vel­op­ing your plans and wait to take ac­tion un­til all the de­tails are in place. Take your vi­sion to the next level be­fore ex­press­ing what's in your heart.

VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 22)

Your de­ci­sions are com­pli­cated by some­one else's as­sump­tions or lim­i­ta­tions. You may be will­ing to move for­ward with a project or deepen a re­la­tion­ship, yet it takes two to tango. Be care­ful; don't fall into the trap of be­liev­ing that you will per­suade another per­son to ini­ti­ate ac­tion. It's one thing to ex­press your­self hon­estly, but it's some­thing en­tirely dif­fer­ent if you're do­ing it to elicit a de­sired re­sponse. The real trick is know­ing how to share your feel­ings with­out get­ting hooked by your own ex­pec­ta­tions.

LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 22)

You don't know what to ex­pect now be­cause peo­ple are act­ing out of character. You might be tired of try­ing to an­tic­i­pate the re­ac­tions of friends or co­work­ers, prompt­ing you to re­treat and limit your com­mu­ni­ca­tion to the es­sen­tials. Un­for­tu­nately, your self-im­posed si­lenced can send the wrong mes­sage, mak­ing oth­ers feel as if you are re­ject­ing them. Thank­fully, this awk­ward ten­sion dis­si­pates nat­u­rally, so don't turn it into some­thing big­ger than it ac­tu­ally is. The best thing you can do is use this as an op­por­tu­nity to ini­ti­ate an hon­est di­a­logue.


You are your own great­est en­emy to­day if you let doubt stop you from jumping in and per­form­ing a job that you haven't done be­fore. There isn't nec­es­sar­ily any­thing you can do to bet­ter pre­pare your­self for what's next. Don't waste en­ergy try­ing to talk your­self out of giv­ing it your best ef­fort; in­stead, push ahead me­thod­i­cally with­out cling­ing to any un­re­al­is­tic ex­pec­ta­tions or pre­con­ceived lim­i­ta­tions. Achiev­ing suc­cess starts with be­liev­ing in your­self.


It doesn't mat­ter if you are run­ning be­hind on a job or not; ev­ery­thing still takes longer now than you orig­i­nally planned. But don't let dis­cour­age­ment slow you down even more, be­cause you can be pro­duc­tive enough over the next sev­eral days to make up lost ground. Rather than wor­ry­ing about what you didn't do yes­ter­day or mak­ing empty prom­ises about to­mor­row, fo­cus on the present mo­ment to in­crease your ef­fi­ciency to­day. Some­times the most cru­cial an­swers are the ones clos­est to home.


Your re­sis­tance to dis­trac­tions crumbles to­day as you grow in­creas­ingly bored with your cur­rent work. Although you have the abil­ity to ex­ert your willpower, your self­dis­ci­pline is wan­ing, es­pe­cially if your friends en­tice you with temp­ta­tions of fun. There's noth­ing wrong with tak­ing some time to play now as long as you don't avoid your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in the process. Tem­po­rar­ily los­ing your­self in the crowd might be all you need to re­vi­tal­ize your spirit.


De­clin­ing a so­cial invitation may be the wis­est thing to do be­cause it's all too easy to scat­ter your en­ergy to­day. How­ever, you might end up work­ing too hard with lit­tle to show for your ef­forts un­less you make a con­scious decision to follow through on what you start. In­stead of eval­u­at­ing all the op­tions and imag­in­ing the best pos­si­ble out­come at ev­ery turn, sim­ply follow your in­tu­ition now. No mat­ter how much you an­a­lyze the sit­u­a­tion, your first hunch is prob­a­bly your best bet.

PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20)

Although your friends and work­mates are fan­tas­tic sources of wis­dom now, the fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions you must make are yours alone. How­ever, you can still share your per­spec­tive as long as you don't get dis­tracted by a tem­po­rary feel-good so­lu­tion. For­tu­nately, in­te­grat­ing the ad­vice you re­ceive en­ables you to han­dle the un­der­ly­ing is­sue. Don't fall for the smoke-and-mir­rors il­lu­sion; mak­ing a tough choice to­day pre­vents a more se­ri­ous headache down the road.
