ARIES (March 21-April 19):

You can ac­com­plish nearly any­thing while you are trav­el­ing in the fantasy realms. How­ever, once you re­turn to the real world, you con­tinue to run into walls that may re­quire you to aban­don your dreams. Your frus­tra­tion draws you closer to mak­ing a long-term de­ci­sion, but its not pru­dent to over­reach to­day. Go ahead and share your still-amor­phous ideas, even if you might risk desta­bi­liz­ing your equi­lib­rium. The key to main­tain­ing your bal­ance is your aware­ness of when you lose it. Maya An­gelou wrote, Noth­ing can dim the light that shines from within.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20):

In your dreams, youre elo­quently con­fess­ing your love to some­one who sends your heart into aerial ac­ro­bat­ics. In re­al­ity, youre torn be­tween mak­ing a new con­nec­tion or run­ning for safety. This per­sonal dilemma is par­tic­u­larly un­nerv­ing be­cause in­ac­tion wont help any­thing at all. Luck­ily, the more you talk about your needs and de­sires now, the eas­ier it be­comes to speak from your heart. Psy­chol­o­gist Brene Brown wrote, Vul­ner­a­bil­ity is our most ac­cu­rate mea­sure­ment of courage.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Although you may be rel­a­tively con­tent with your cho­sen ca­reer path, you can only see where youve fallen short in other ar­eas of your life. You're not a harsh critic but you have grown dis­sat­is­fied with cer­tain re­la­tion­ships. You might be feel­ing pres­sured to make changes in your com­mu­ni­ca­tion style now. Adding more mean­ing to your con­ver­sa­tions -- on­line and in the real world -- is ac­com­plished by a sim­ple dec­la­ra­tion of your choice. An­nounc­ing your in­ten­tions to­day is the be­gin­ning of a won­der­ful new jour­ney.

CAN­CER (June 21-July 22):

Your world is like a play­ground now, where you and your friends can meet for fun and fri­vol­i­ties. Cir­cum­stances in­vite you to tuck away your wor­ries and en­joy the com­pany of those you love and re­spect. How­ever, an au­thor­ity fig­ure may crash the party and try to dic­tate your ac­tions. Clearly, its smart to play by the rules but youre not re­spon­si­ble to change any­one elses judg­ment of you. Main­tain­ing your in­tegrity and cel­e­brat­ing lifes joys are not mu­tu­ally exclusive.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):

Com­mu­ni­cat­ing with your peers can pre­cip­i­tate an in­ter­est­ing mix of emo­tions to­day. On one hand, you love to hang out with your friends, laugh­ing and shar­ing sto­ries. But on the other hand, its dis­cour­ag­ing when their words dont match up with their ac­tions, mak­ing it tougher to let down your guard. Nev­er­the­less, ev­ery re­la­tion­ship is a chance to prac­tice trust. He­len Keller wrote, Op­ti­mism is the faith that leads to achievemen­t. Noth­ing can be done with­out hope and con­fi­dence.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

Although there are top­ics al­ready on the ta­ble for dis­cus­sion, its help­ful to have a solid idea of where the con­ver­sa­tion could lead. But talk­ing about your inner process might not go as smoothly as you hope to­day. In fact, oth­ers may not un­der­stand the logic of your re­cent de­ci­sions and the more you ex­plain your­self now, the more com­pli­cated and en­tan­gled your words sound. Dont wait too long to mod­ify your strat­egy. Lis­ten up; if the cos­mos is telling you to save your mes­sage for an­other day, dont waste words ar­gu­ing.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Your ul­ti­mate dream might be to live in a world where ev­ery­one is re­spected and cher­ished. Of course, a fantasy like this can­not pos­si­bly be ful­filled overnight, but you may be sur­prised at what you can do if you scale down your ex­pec­ta­tions. If you want to play the role of a diplo­mat, fo­cus on one is­sue at a time rather than all of hu­man­ity's prob­lems. Stay pos­i­tive and keep your goals man­age­able. Com­mit­ment in the face of con­flict pro­duces char­ac­ter.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

You can get your ideas across to oth­ers to­day only if you do the proper prepa­ra­tion. One thing is cer­tain; you can­not just wing it now. Although the con­nec­tion might seem ten­u­ous, the first step is to de­cide on how to take your spir­i­tual pur­suit to the next level. The se­cond step is to shorten your de­liv­ery. When you have your words crafted into a con­cise flow in your mind, then youre ready to bring an­other per­son into the equa­tion. Aris­to­tle wrote, Ed­u­cat­ing the mind with­out ed­u­cat­ing the heart is no ed­u­ca­tion at all.

SAGITTARIU­S (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

Some peo­ple might say that you are blessed by angels. Other might call you lucky to­day as ev­ery­thing seems to fall in your fa­vor. How­ever, the bot­tom line is the same. Once you choose to par­tic­i­pate in a spe­cific project, it ap­pears to turn to gold. But its im­pos­si­ble to tell if suc­cess was al­ready in progress and you sim­ply picked a win­ner, or if your ac­tual in­volve­ment was in­stru­men­tal to the growth. It doesnt re­ally mat­ter what cause you as­cribe to your good for­tune. Con­tinue work­ing as if ev­ery lit­tle thing you do can sin­gu­larly make a dif­fer­ence.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

You be­lieve that your in­ten­tions are well-con­ceived and youre ea­ger to ex­e­cute your plan step by step. Un­for­tu­nately, you might not take the nec­es­sary pre­cau­tions be­fore in­clud­ing oth­ers in your project. Its one thing to let your­self down; you can live with your own mis­takes and their im­pact on your life. Karmi­cally speak­ing, its much more emo­tion­ally ex­pen­sive to cre­ate in­ter­per­sonal trou­ble be­cause then you need to un­tan­gle the mess. Pre­ven­tion is the best medicine.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

It feels as if youre be­ing told what to do -- and you dont like be­ing bossed around at all. Although you fre­quently strug­gle with your emo­tions, they are the weather vanes of your life now, point­ing to­ward the direc­tion of change. Its not wise to sup­press your cur­rent re­ac­tions to an in­tense sit­u­a­tion. Nev­er­the­less, discussing the dy­namic power im­bal­ance is a dead-end street. Meditate on your emo­tions be­fore bring­ing any­one else into the magic of the mo­ment. Si­lence speaks when words fail.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar 20):

Cir­cum­stances on the home front may be slightly un­sta­ble to­day, and theres no ob­vi­ous path to­ward a con­struc­tive so­lu­tion. Un­for­tu­nately, a dis­agree­ment over pri­or­i­ties could hi­jack your day if you let it. Dont al­low your needs to get lost in the shuf­fle. Theres no rea­son to ask any­one else for advice when you can ask your­self. Block out the noise and go deep now. A quiet mind is able to hear in­tu­ition over fear. The best an­swers come from within.
