ARIES March 21 - April 20

Ev­ery­thing tends to pile-up to­day -- sug­ges­tions, ideas, plans, and maybe even some ma­te­rial goods, too. If the time’s not right to act now, you’ll want the per­fect strat­egy to be eas­ily called to mind when it is or the ideal tools to be read­ily at hand. Keep your pri­vate thoughts and long mem­ory as well or­ga­nized as the re­sources and in­for­ma­tion you need to im­me­di­ately ex­press or uti­lize. Be grate­ful for your good for­tune.

TAU­RUS April 21 - May 21

In­stincts fu­eled by your sixth sense turn your at­ten­tion to­ward an area where a bridge can be built or a promis­ing con­nec­tion made. While some fam­ily mem­bers or co­work­ers seem con­tent to wait upon fate, you’re in a more proac­tive mood. Some­thing awe­some can be set in mo­tion through team­work and syn­ergy now. J. C. Penney said, “Growth is never by mere chance; it is the re­sult of forces work­ing to­gether.”

GEM­INI May 22 - June 21

A wake-up call might be ex­pe­ri­enced in a bril­liant, but short-lived flash to­day. Stay alert to the rush of in­sight that sur­prises you when a friend’s ca­sual com­ment hits home, or the char­ac­ter on screen gives voice to feel­ings you know ex­tremely well. But if you al­low that lit­tle jolt do its job, you could very well ex­pe­ri­ence a bona fide Archimedes’ mo­ment of “Eureka!” It’s al­ways the right time to rise and shine.

CAN­CER June 22 - July 23

There could be mul­ti­ple rea­sons why it’s a good idea to hop out­side your com­fort zone, even if only briefly. Maybe you need a breath of fresh air be­cause it’s get­ting too hot and you want to cool down, or you’re al­ready shiv­ery and crave a few mo­ments in the Sun. What­ever the specifics, a wee tip­toe into a realm be­yond the strictly fa­mil­iar can be re­vi­tal­iz­ing. Ad­ven­ture beck­ons and your cu­rios­ity is awak­ened.

LEO July 24 - Au­gust 23

Tur­bu­lent cross­cur­rents in­ter­weave in busi­ness or your pro­fes­sional world. You’re not the only one that might feel un­cer tain about how to pro­ceed. Gather with clever col­leagues to strate­gize for all con­tin­gen­cies. Dur­ing your bril­liant brain­storm­ing ses­sion, it may be pos­si­ble to put to­gether an ac­tion plan which is in­clu­sive enough to in­cor­po­rate mixed points of views and dif­fer­ing ob­jec­tives. Say no to chaos and yes to peace.

VIRGO Au­gust 24 - Septem­ber 23

Pre­dict­ing what will hap­pen next can be a nail-bit­ing sort of propo­si­tion, es­pe­cially when so much of it is out­side your con­trol. The choices of your fam­ily mem­bers or love mate also fig­ure into the pic­ture, and that’s ex­actly as it should be. Your trust can be an ex­er­cise in faith, as you humbly ac­cept the ne­ces­sity of rolling with uncer­tainty. The an­swer or out­come will soon enough be re­vealed. Pa­tience is a virtue.

LI­BRA Septem­ber 24 - Oc­to­ber 23

A pic­ture paints a thou­sand words. If you’re mak­ing a sales pitch or pre­sen­ta­tion, con­sider the ef­fi­cacy of im­agery. Make full use of what can be com­mu­ni­cated non-ver­bally through vis­ual means. What’s said can go in one ear and out the other, but what’s seen may not be so quickly for­got­ten. Pho­tog­ra­pher Alix Smith said, “I felt the most ef­fec­tive way to change peo­ple’s per­cep­tion was through the power of images.”

SCOR­PIO Oc­to­ber 24 - Novem­ber 22

You are out to make a dent, whether you’re chip­ping away at a chal­lenge or go­ing at it with ham­mer blows. You’re not up for frit­ter­ing away your time or wast­ing a lot of en­ergy in busy work that goes nowhere. With all the pas­sion that’s fu­el­ing your in­ten­tions, it’s nearly im­pos­si­ble to imag­ine that you won’t find a way to make a dif­fer­ence through hard work and con­struc­tive ac­tions. Never un­der­es­ti­mate power of per­sis­tence.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS Novem­ber 23 - De­cem­ber 21

Many mixed emo­tions are stirred by an event to­day, leav­ing you to won­der if it re­ally just hap­pened. When some­thing is un­usual or far out­side typ­i­cal ex­pec­ta­tions, it’s per­fectly nat­u­ral to take a lit­tle ex­tra time pro­cess­ing it be­fore you can be sure how you feel. There are sparks of mys­tery and ex­cite­ment swirling, es­pe­cially if part of the equa­tion is sexy, ro­man­tic, or even para­nor­mal. Honor your con­clu­sions.

CAPRI­CORN De­cem­ber 22 - Jan­uary 20

Re­sis­tance to change doesn’t stop it from hap­pen­ing. If dig­ging in your heels and try­ing to halt for­ward mo­tion isn’t work­ing out to­day, it might be time to make a con­sci­en­tious at­ti­tude ad­just­ment. Those who look only to the past or present are cer­tain to miss out on the fu­ture. You are made of tough stuff. Think of un­pre­dictable or shift­ing con­di­tions in terms of op­por­tu­nity, not chal­lenge. Evo­lu­tion doesn’t have to be scary.

AQUAR­IUS Jan­uary 21 - Fe­bru­ary 19

Speak up if you feel you’re be­ing left out in the cold. Some­one’s self-in­volve­ment might be the rea­son for their thought­less­ness and it’s not meant as a per­sonal re­jec­tion. Your words can be like the in­can­ta­tion that breaks this kind of spell. Maybe you’ll get what you want, maybe you won’t. No mat­ter the re­sult, there’s a burst of con­fi­dence gen­er­ated when you make your­self heard. Claim your voice and don’t back down.

PISCES Fe­bru­ary 20 - March 20

There’s an en­chanted power in dream­ing, imag­in­ing, and wish­ing to­day. What you con­jure in your mind’s eye, you help move from the strictly ab­stract world into the realm of pos­si­bil­ity. Take the en­ergy in­spired by fan­tasy into the pro­cesses of cre­ation, in­ven­tion, and pro­duc­tion. Your orig­i­nal­ity and en­thu­si­asm are like build­ing blocks upon which you can turn an in­no­va­tive good idea into a con­crete re­al­ity. Don’t get trapped.
