Friday, Feb. 3, 2023 ARIES (March 21April 19).
When you feel like you’re not quite getting the attention, respect or remuneration you’re due, it’s an opportunity to step up and a chance to refine the skills and techniques that help you attain greater influence over your world.
TAURUS (April 20May 20). Deep inside, you know who you are and what you want. But distractions make you forget. When you lose the thread, look inward. Get still and reflect on the core of your being.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To live in the world is to accept premises all day long. To accept every premise thrown at you would lead to a puppet’s life of following a script you didn’t write. Today you’ll question everything and be better for it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You realize that what stands between you and what you want is a habit that is either hard to quit or hard to form. But you are capable of doing either. Much depends on tinkering that first, small move that leads to the bigger ones.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Because of the negativity bias humans have evolved to, it’s probably not your first instinct to look on the bright side. Still, you can guide and train yourself to positivity. Optimism needs to be planned for. Employ environmental cues.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). One definition of trauma is “unprocessed feelings.” There’s a chance it’s not all uncomfortable or painful feelings. There’s a chance it all can be handled quickly and gracefully with someone who knows how. It’s time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can avoid mistakes by taking a step back to ask if the job, system or personal agenda before you is in alignment with your own. It will keep you from getting hemmed into a situation you can’t get out of without a seam ripper.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The perfectionist will want to win today, but there is no prize! The perfectionist will never be totally happy because nothing is ever totally perfect. When it’s good enough, say so and step on.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Is the thing you like also good for you? Anything can be harmful in the wrong dosage, but some things are harmful in any dosage and better avoided entirely. You’ll have a sense of which you’re dealing with.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People have their favorite laments they will return to again and again for the sweet release of commiseration. You like to let people vent to a degree if there’s something to bond over, but not enough to dim your bright mood.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Bundled in with praise and admiration will be requests and expectations. If appreciation obligates you, it’s not appreciation so much as manipulation. You shouldn’t have to agree to anything to be liked.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The toll to the future is paid with what you’re willing to let go of about the past. You’ll love the sensation of moving forward. The traffic frees up and you can finally take the highway at the speed limit.
