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.
