FOR TO­DAY ARIES (March 21-April 19):

Hard work and ir­re­press­ible joy make ex­cel­lent al­lies. In fact, this dy­namic duo can bring you boun­ti­ful ma­te­rial and spir­i­tual re­wards. It doesnt mat­ter what dis­trac­tions come and go to­day, you will not be led astray. You are on a mis­sion now, and de­rive deep sat­is­fac­tion from stay­ing on task while op­por­tunis­tic Jupiter op­poses the ob­sti­nate Tau­rus Sun in your 2nd House of In­come. Do your job well and the cash will fol­low. Thomas Jef­fer­son wrote, Never spend your money be­fore you have earned it.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20):

Your optimism ex­tends so far to­day that you may prom­ise nearly any­thing be­fore think­ing about the con­se­quences. But as nice as you try to be to oth­ers, good will is bidi­rec­tional. Peo­ple with big ideas ar­rive at your door to so­licit your help in their cause, and you cant think of any rea­son to turn them away. A spirit of collaborat­ion in­creases your ef­fi­ciency, but it doesnt nec­es­sar­ily last when youre ac­tu­ally in the pro­duc­tion trenches. Seize this op­por­tu­nity to prac­tice tol­er­ance by re­mem­ber­ing that you are work­ing on the same team. Au­thor Bob Proc­tor wrote, Co­op­er­a­tion is al­ways more pow­er­ful than com­pe­ti­tion.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 20):

You can set the tone for lead­er­ship now by con­vinc­ing peo­ple to move in a bold new di­rec­tion. Al­though this burst of in­spi­ra­tion could ap­ply to a solo mis­sion, its re­ally your abil­ity to lead that stands out to­day. Youre ca­pa­ble of break­ing com­plex con­cepts down into bite-size terms that any­one can digest. Avoid the temp­ta­tion to tackle more than you should when ex­pan­sive Jupiter op­poses the Sun. Your plans are solid on their own merit and dont re­quire lots of glitter to sell them to oth­ers. Sin­cer­ity counts more than sparkle.

CAN­CER (June 21-July 22):

Your senses are highly acute to­day, en­abling you to per­ceive sub­tle signs that oth­ers dont even no­tice. Fur­ther­more, you pos­sess a nat­u­ral skill that al­lows you to uti­lize what you know to your own ends. Your pow­ers of per­sua­sion are strong, and youre think­ing in more un­con­ven­tional terms now. Tak­ing a cal­cu­lated risk at work demon­strates your abil­ity to turn a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion into a suc­cess­ful out­come. Nev­er­the­less, gam­bling with your heart is not ad­vised. Wait a few days be­fore mak­ing your feel­ings known if you wish to be re­ceived fa­vor­ably. Saint Fran­cis de Sales wrote, Have pa­tience with all things, but first of all with your­self.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):

Your am­bi­tions are am­pli­fied to­day, mak­ing it tough to in­te­grate your goals into the cir­cum­stances of your life. An ad­ven­tur­ous Sun-jupiter op­po­si­tion urges you to look for­ward in ca­reer mat­ters, but all the other im­por­tant sig­nals in­sist that you man­age your cur­rent obli­ga­tions be­fore tak­ing on any­thing else. Youre ea­ger to con­tinue on your jour­ney, but first must meet the de­mands placed on you close to home. Nar­row­ing your scope of vi­sion im­proves the chances for suc­cess as long as you dont shut out the ones who love you the most.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

You are caught up in in­trigue as cre­ative and ro­man­tic pos­si­bil­i­ties fly through your life. Al­though your thoughts have been lurk­ing in the hid­den re­cesses of your imag­i­na­tion, they are brought to the sur­face now where you can as­sim­i­late the new ideas. Step back and al­low benev­o­lent Jupiter to work his magic in your 3rd House of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Strik­ing up a con­ver­sa­tion about a dif­fi­cult is­sue re­moves the road­blocks to hon­est di­a­logue. Zen philoso­pher Alan Watts wrote, But the at­ti­tude of faith is to let go and be­come open to truth, what­ever it might turn out to be.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

You may ex­pe­ri­ence a wave of en­thu­si­asm to­day that awak­ens ex­cit­ing new feel­ings. Nor­mally, you might just treat these in­trigu­ing sen­sa­tions as in­tel­lec­tual cu­riosi­ties and then be tempted to let them pass. How­ever, you are in­spired to move closer to the source of your emo­tions now, so you can bet­ter un­der­stand them. Trust your in­tu­ition and fol­low your heart, for it will guide you to­ward more mean­ing­ful re­la­tion­ships. Deep con­ver­sa­tions with the right peo­ple are price­less.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

Your cur­rent ar­ro­gance is coun­tered by the pos­si­bil­ity of a fight to the fin­ish. Nev­er­the­less, you are in­ex­pli­ca­bly filled with hope and prom­ises. The Suns op­po­si­tion to buoy­ant Jupiter in your 1st House of Self pushes you to take on more than you can eas­ily han­dle, but that wont stop you from try­ing. Of course, its ap­pro­pri­ate to be ruggedly op­ti­mistic, but re­mem­ber that many care­ful steps are re­quired be­fore you reach the top of the moun­tain. Au­thor Jim Rohn wrote, Suc­cess is nei­ther mag­i­cal nor mys­te­ri­ous. Suc­cess is the nat­u­ral con­se­quence of con­sis­tently ap­ply­ing ba­sic fundamenta­ls.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

You might take a stand on an im­por­tant sub­ject now, but your overt sel­f­righ­teous­ness min­i­mizes your in­flu­ence. Un­for­tu­nately, dif­fer­ing ideas on how to move for­ward can lead to a clash with some­one in power. Its pos­si­ble that your plan is bet­ter, but you havent yet put it out on the ta­ble. Mean­while, aris­to­cratic Jupiter op­poses the re­lent­less Sun in your 6th House of Work, en­cour­ag­ing you to as­sert your­self in such a way that peo­ple feel like they need to re­sist. For­tu­nately, you can avoid a showdown by shar­ing your opin­ions gen­tly, as if you have noth­ing to prove. Hu­mil­ity is your friend.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Your words carry the strength of your con­vic­tions to­day and when you speak, your friends and as­so­ciates will lis­ten. How­ever, the Suns an­nual op­po­si­tion to gi­ant Jupiter floods your 5th House of Self-ex­pres­sion with false con­fi­dence and un­founded pos­i­tive think­ing. Over-com­mit­ment of re­sources or over­sized egos will not be tol­er­ated. When re­al­ity brings you back down to earth with a thud, you have no choice but to con­front the obstacles in front of you. Lady Nancy As­tor wrote, The most prac­ti­cal thing in the world is com­mon sense and com­mon hu­man­ity.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Your life is buzzing with ex­cite­ment and youre ea­ger to ex­pe­ri­ence as much of it as you can. Youre not nat­u­rally at ease with your feel­ings but be­ing in an emo­tion­ally safe place now goes a long way to soothe your nerves. The Suns op­po­si­tion to boun­ti­ful Jupiter il­lu­mi­nates your 10th House of Pub­lic Re­spon­si­bil­ity while en­cour­ag­ing you to keep one foot firmly grounded on the home front. Al­though a log­i­cal ap­proach to your ca­reer path may prevent you from tak­ing un­nec­es­sary risks, it also en­ables you to be flex­i­ble enough so you can break free of struc­tures that might oth­er­wise hold you back.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar 20):

Your en­thu­si­asm grows as you look ahead to your fu­ture. Whether or not you are strug­gling now, you can see brighter days down the road. An ex­pan­sive Sun­jupiter op­po­si­tion ac­ti­vates your 9th House of Big Ideas, draw­ing in­spi­ra­tional peo­ple into your world. How­ever, bom­bas­tic Jupiter can also at­tract friends and col­leagues who ex­ag­ger­ate too much. Con­sider what­ever sto­ries you are hear­ing as food for thought rather than a re­flec­tion of the cur­rent re­al­ity. A Hopi proverb teaches, All dreams are spun from the same web.
