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.
