Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You’re ecstatic about sharing your ideas today, expecting others to either wholeheartedly agree with you or just keep their opinions to themselves. But even if you are on the right track, your know-it-all approach could upset people who are threatened by your apparent lack of humility. Fortunately, you can quickly smooth out potential bumps in the road before you reach them by simply softening your tone. When you don’t take yourself so seriously, others will follow your lead. A healthy dose of self-deprecation is your secret weapon of persuasion.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
It seems as if someone is trying to coerce you into accepting more responsibilities than you want now, but you might be unable to say no without causing static. Your resistance may stir up more negativity than just swallowing your pride and doing what’s expected of you. But don’t be too self-critical if it’s a struggle to get motivated today. However, once your head is in the game, keep up the pace and follow through on whatever you start. Satisfaction will be yours for a job well done.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Being open-minded should be easy today, especially if the weight of responsibility is lifted from your shoulders, taking your self-doubt with it. However, reality gets in one last punch that could land you in a challenging situation if you unwittingly start a discussion that pushes people’s buttons. You may end up unleashing more emotional drama than you intended. Nevertheless, sticking with the process should lead to a resolution sooner than you think. As coach Vince Lombardi said, “A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.”
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
There are specific activities you would prefer to be doing now and you’re not interested in waiting for someone’s approval. However, your current impatience might exacerbate a fundamental disagreement between you and a coworker. Thankfully, it can be healing to discuss issues that you have been avoiding for the sake of convenience. There is no reason to shy away from a sensitive topic as long as you don’t shift the blame to anyone else and take responsibility for your feelings. An atmosphere of mutual respect cultivates trust.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You are on an energetic roll, but your intensity can land you in trouble today. Even if it seems like the big pieces are falling into place, you still may push harder than is necessary. Unfortunately, your eagerness could provoke others to resist your progress if you’re trying to make up for lost time. Someone might even attempt to dull your sparkle just to bring you down a notch. Luckily, a bit of conscious constraint on your part now will ameliorate any bad feelings that surface. The trick is to shine your light without overshadowing the group.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You wish you could keep your feelings quiet today, but someone might lure you into their personal melodrama without warning. You may grow annoyed with the entire situation, provoking you to express yourself in an unrestrained manner. Unfortunately, you can lose your temper so quickly that you don’t even realize what’s happening until the deed is done. It’s completely unnecessary to turn a difficult interaction into a major crisis by dwelling on your anger. Take the high road; let it go and move on.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Everyone’s attention appears to be directed toward someone else today, but your feelings need to be acknowledged, too. Typically, you thrive on being supportive of your friends and coworkers, but now you realize you must stand up for yourself. Say whatever is required to make your wishes known. Although you might not reach satisfaction by being fully recognized, at least you will feel satisfied that you attempted to reestablish balance in a relationship. Don’t be afraid of failing; be afraid of not trying.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You can’t help but grow agitated if someone seems to hurry you along today. You might choose to deliberately postpone your forward progress for a while in order to assimilate all the recent changes. Nevertheless, it’s not always possible to avoid your current commitments. People are counting on you to do your part, so you may need to wait another day or two before pursuing your own ambitions. Fulfilling your obligations leads to the freedom you seek.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
These are exciting times, but you could be so steadfast in your beliefs now that you waste energy defending your position. Instead of worrying about the future, try experiencing the present. Thankfully, you can sidestep an unnecessary conflict today by toning down your rhetoric. A sweeping generalization or an unsubstantiated accusation might do more harm than good. Be persistent in the pursuit of your goals and flexible in your methods.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Although you might be preoccupied with a personal problem today, the actual situation probably isn’t as critical as you think. Your current emotional insecurity can unexpectedly overwhelm your rational outlook, tempting you to run home to hide away from everyone’s judgmental glances. But the real message now is about holding your ground rather than throwing in the towel. Write your own script instead of playing a part in someone else’s movie.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Consider ditching your previous plans and starting from scratch today. Acting in a totally spontaneous manner empowers you to be extremely creative and, ultimately, more productive than following a preconceived agenda. Don’t be concerned with what others think about your rebellious behavior now, even if you face emotional objections to your new strategy. The discussion might grow heated in the moment, but you will be happier in the long run if you structure your schedule to reflect your own needs and not acquiesce to anyone else’s.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Developing an amazing idea just isn’t enough to make your day memorable; you must include others in your planning now or you won’t have the resources to reach your goals. Everything could fall apart at the seams if you don’t involve your friends or coworkers. Nevertheless, discussing the alternatives with your peers prior to making a final decision improves the odds for your success. Fight against the tide and don’t act impulsively today; listen to the feedback you receive before deciding how best to proceed.
