ARIES (March 21-April 19):
Your vision of beauty is impossible to manifest today because your imagination is creating a mirage. But as you get closer to the object of your desires -- whether its a person, place, thing or idea -- it fades, leaving a faint shadow of its prior glory in its place. Although you may be disappointed when something in the three-dimensional world doesnt match your expectations, you can still feel gratitude for your current blessings. Instead of harboring unattainable illusions, its better in the long run to acknowledge whats real.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20):
Your community means so much to you today that you could lose track of your own needs. You appreciate that you are a part of a larger social network and you tend to be proud of your connection to the group. Nevertheless, you may be required to modify your thinking once you discover that some of your friends and associates don't quite meet your expectations. Ultimately, its healthier to know the truth even if its not as ideal as you initially believed. Thankfully, a single thread of hope is still a very powerful force.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
Your hopes are set on receiving recognition today. However, people dont really understand your contribution now, making it difficult for them to appreciate your role in their success. Instead of seeking approval from your peers or your boss, consider the level of satisfaction you feel after a hard day of work. Rather than comparing your accomplishments to anyone elses, give yourself credit for any job well done. But dont rest on past laurels; think about where youve fallen short and how you can do even better tomorrow.
CANCER (June 21-July 22):
Concentrating on work isnt easy today, especially if your fantasies are carrying you off to exotic places. But dont mistake your daydreams for real plans as your mind runs free now, unencumbered from the practicalities of the mundane world. Sharing your ideas with others can move you closer to making your dreams come true. Listen carefully to the feedback and implement the best ideas you receive. Selective filtering enables you to turn an impossible scenario into a reachable goal.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
You are enchanted by those things that are beyond the five senses today. You want to see whats behind the curtain but might be afraid youll learn that the Wizard of Oz is just a mere mortal. You could actually choose to stop searching before you discover that the mystery isnt as special as you imagined. Nevertheless, you wont be happy now until your curiosity is satisfied. Sadly, readjusting to the truth is more practical than to go on living in your bubble of illusion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
Ironically, falling in love with someone today is easier if you dont know the person very well. Your mind can conjure up a vision of perfection that is based on a nonattainable romantic illusion as long as facts dont get in the way. Nevertheless, pursuing the dream may be a lovely distraction from the normal drudgery of your regular routine. However, the actual manifestation of your fantasies will likely be a disappointment when compared to your initial hopes. Philosopher George Santayana wrote, Wisdom comes by disillusionment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
Adhering to a schedule today seems like a fools errand, yet that wont likely stop you from trying. But you might reach a point of frustration when youre ready to throw in the towel and walk away from your plans. However, you're closer to your goal now than you realize. Giving up is a bad idea because your discouragement is only transitory. Proceeding on your chosen path could feel painstakingly slow, but you may be happily surprised when you see the progress you made by the end of the day.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
You appear to have an infinite well of creativity today, yet you might not know how to best put it to use. If youre artistically inclined, set aside some time to channel your inner world into something tangible. However, any sort of self-expression is magnified now, whether or not you turn it into a product of substance. Just be sure that you move beyond the repetitive routine of your daily grind by sharing your dreams with someone special, listening to your favorite music or losing yourself into a movie that excites your imagination. Inspiration is everywhere.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
When you nostalgically reconstruct your past today, youre likely to recollect events very differently than as they actually occurred. Your subconscious is in the state of creation now, and the images and feelings that flow forth are influencing how your brain interprets your memories. However, dwelling on years gone by is not productive unless you bring the old thoughts and feelings into the present moment, so you can gain a new perspective on your personal history. Looking back is most useful when you also look ahead.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
Putting newly found information into perspective can be tricky today, because its nearly impossible to discern whats real from whats imagined. Your mind is happy to process all the data, whether it comes directly from sensory input or bubbles up from the hidden realms of your subconscious. Normally, your clarity enables you to determine your best route forward; unfortunately, you may feel as if youre flying blind now. Enjoying the fruits of your imagination is possible if you temporarily suspend your attempts to make measurable progress. Not all those who wander are lost.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
Your process may feel like a roller coaster ride today, but its more gentle than scary. Your self-esteem rises and falls as people react to your ideas. They might judge you harshly when your visions are overly idealistic, causing you to doubt your beliefs. But they support your plans when you are more pragmatic, which builds your self-confidence. Although these changes are not very abrupt, you prefer more stability now. Fortunately, you can maintain an even keel by temporarily detaching yourself from the feedback loop. Follow your instincts and you can't go wrong.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar 20):
Your imagination can take you on a wild goose chase today, encouraging you to head out one way only to belatedly realize that its not the right direction. No matter how many times you correct your path, youre still not certain that your aim is correct. Minor confusion could grow into serious concern if you turn yourself around one too many times. However, your trajectory may be less important than your attitude. Paradoxically, once you stop worrying about reaching your destination, you might just discover that you are already there.
