Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although there are chores wait­ing for you to­day, you’re ready to blow off your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and pur­sue a bit of over­due plea­sure. Thank­fully, the dis­parate pieces should fall into place pretty eas­ily once you make your de­ci­sion. There is no rea­son to hide your plans from any­one else, even if they don’t agree with your choices. Fol­low your heart and not your head now, but stop long enough to see the in­trin­sic value in both your feel­ings and your thoughts.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

You’re eager to swing into ac­tion in or­der to reestab­lish your emo­tional equi­lib­rium to­day. You may feel like a can­dle in the wind if you lose your con­nec­tion with the more prac­ti­cal side of the equa­tion. Nev­er­the­less, your life is more sta­ble than you re­al­ize and your light has nearly no chance of be­ing blown out by chang­ing cir­cum­stances. Au­thor Rikki Rogers wrote, “Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from over­com­ing the things you once thought you couldn’t.”

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)

You want to shout your plans from the rooftop to­day be­cause you’re anx­ious to make a point about how you want to live your life. You may think it’s im­por­tant to ex­press your in­di­vid­u­al­ity and stand up to the author­ity of any­one who tries to limit your op­tions. How­ever, you could get car­ried away with your mis­sion and over­state your cause. Un­for­tu­nately, peo­ple might not be so ap­pre­cia­tive of your agenda un­less you demon­strate your con­cern for their needs as well. Ralph Waldo Emer­son wrote, “With­out a rich heart, wealth is an ugly beg­gar.”

Can­cer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

The same ideas that you weren’t sure about a few days ago now ap­pear to be the shini­est of stars beam­ing at you. Your con­fi­dence in­spires oth­ers to re­spond en­thu­si­as­ti­cally when you share your plans, which in turn, val­i­dates your am­bi­tious in­ten­tions. How­ever, your cur­rent orig­i­nal­ity can over­shadow your com­mon sense. Don’t trade in a prac­ti­cal plan for an in­ge­nious one that won’t work. Your suc­cess de­pends upon set­ting goals that are flex­i­ble and at­tain­able.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

It feels good to boldly state your needs with­out much of a fil­ter to­day. Your plans may be out­ra­geous but your flair for the dra­matic makes even the cra­zi­est idea sound to­tally plau­si­ble to your au­di­ence. Hap­pily, ev­ery­one seems to be ap­plaud­ing your ef­forts and you’re not com­pletely sure why. But don’t waste en­ergy try­ing to ra­tio­nal­ize the be­hav­ior of oth­ers; you have too much to prove and the sooner you start the show, the sooner you’ll be able to reap the re­wards of your stel­lar per­for­mance.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might be rid­ing a quiet wave of self-as­sur­ance now, but peo­ple won’t likely see your pos­i­tiv­ity at first. You could go out of your way to hide a bloom­ing re­la­tion­ship or min­i­mize an in­fat­u­a­tion with a per­son, place or idea be­cause you don’t want any­one spoil­ing it with their neg­a­tiv­ity. But your somber de­meanor is con­fus­ing to oth­ers who can’t un­der­stand what you’re keep­ing to your­self. Greek philoso­pher Phae­drus wrote, “Things are not al­ways as they seem; the first ap­pear­ance de­ceives many.”

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Main­tain­ing your place in the so­cial peck­ing or­der is eas­ier to­day than keep­ing the peace in a fam­ily re­la­tion­ship. Although your friends and as­so­ci­ates of­fer en­tic­ing in­vi­ta­tions now, your time is bet­ter spent patch­ing up hurt feel­ings with some­one close to you than fill­ing your cal­en­dar with many di­ver­sions. But don’t ex­pect too much too fast; you might miss the most im­por­tant part if you con­tinue to rush through the day. Vir­ginia Woolf wrote, “No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be any­body but one­self.”

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re tired of putting your pro­fes­sional rep­u­ta­tion on the line. You wish there was a way to en­gi­neer a re­treat where you didn’t have to face any re­spon­si­bil­i­ties for a few days. Plan your great es­cape, whether it’s a long va­ca­tion to an ex­otic lo­ca­tion or a quick af­ter­noon get­away to a lo­cal spa. But what­ever you choose, it’s es­sen­tial to break your pat­tern and un­plug for a while. Goethe wrote, “We must al­ways change, re­new, re­ju­ve­nate our­selves; oth­er­wise we har­den.”

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Walk­ing on the sunny side of the street re­quires no ex­tra ef­fort to­day be­cause the shade seems to mag­i­cally dis­ap­pear as you ap­proach it. In fact, it feels like ev­ery­thing is com­ing up roses even in the mid­dle of win­ter. Nev­er­the­less, as Grate­ful Dead lyri­cist Robert Hunter wrote, “When life looks like easy street, there is dan­ger at your door.” Even the most per­fect sit­u­a­tion can un­ravel quickly if no one is at­tend­ing to the de­tails. An ounce of pre­ven­tion is worth a pound of cure.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Although you don’t nec­es­sar­ily like it when any­thing or any­one gets in the way of your pro­duc­tiv­ity, it’s nearly im­pos­si­ble to com­part­men­tal­ize your feel­ings to­day. Thank­fully, you won’t likely be over­whelmed now as waves of com­pas­sion open your heart to the plight of those less for­tu­nate. Nev­er­the­less, your cur­rent hy­per­sen­si­tiv­ity re­quires some time man­age­ment, es­pe­cially if your to-do list con­tin­ues to grow. El­bert Hub­bard wrote, “Do not take life too se­ri­ously. You will never get out of it alive.”

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might need to put some per­sonal space be­tween you and another in­di­vid­ual to­day if it feels like you’re los­ing con­trol of your bound­aries. You aren’t con­fi­dent that you’re read­ing the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion cor­rectly, but you’re not ready to han­dle some­one else’s state of per­pet­ual greed. There’s no point in try­ing to rea­son with those who won’t lis­ten. It’s health­ier to dis­en­gage from a toxic in­ter­ac­tion and walk alone than to fol­low a crowd go­ing in the wrong di­rec­tion.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You can’t let down your guard to­day un­til you meet your obli­ga­tions. For­tu­nately, you’re blessed with an abun­dance of en­ergy so don’t pro­cras­ti­nate while the cos­mos is work­ing on your be­half. How­ever, your fan­tasy life might be run­ning on over­drive now, dis­tract­ing you from your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. You could de­rive great in­spi­ra­tion from your imag­i­na­tion if you stay con­scious enough to know the dif­fer­ence be­tween dreams and re­al­ity. Be­lieve it or not, cul­ti­vat­ing your cre­ativ­ity and demon­strat­ing your in­tegrity can be done at the same time.
