Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Obviously, it’s always wise to fulfill your daily obligations, but your mind is likely preoccupied with other things today. You know what you should do, but your desire to socialize is stronger now than your resolve to work. There is always an impulsive element to your behavior but you can also benefit from considerable advanced planning. It’s easy to make everything look good when there are no immediate obstacles impeding your progress. The trick is maintaining your positive attitude even if you must change your plans to accommodate others. Flexibility is your friend.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You might be playing with the idea of taking a day trip with a few of your closest friends. Although you can benefit from doing something outside your regular work hours, you also look forward to squeezing some fun activities into your work schedule today. Give yourself permission to feel good; enjoying the present moment is a decision you get to make every single moment. Marcus Aurelius said, “Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You tend to thrive when so many different issues demand your attention. There’s little opportunity for boredom to settle in now, especially if you continue to say yes to everyone who brings you a problem or an unfinished project. Thankfully, you won’t likely feel overloaded if you are doing what you love; you can easily keep up with your responsibilities when your mission is clear. President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.”
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Almost everyone may leave you alone today, and you really don’t mind the distance at all. However, you begin to long for uplifting interpersonal connections as the day wears on. Thankfully, you don’t need to try very hard in your search for companionship now. Once you make your availability known, potential partners-in-crime appear everywhere you look. Nevertheless, it’s still up to you to decide which one is the most compatible with your goals. Remember, it’s the friends you meet along the way that help you appreciate the journey.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Contrary to popular belief, you Leos don’t roar all the time. In fact, you might be so quiet today that others don’t even notice your presence. However, you suddenly come alive when the conversation shifts to romantic partnerships. Although you’re not quick to reveal your innermost secrets, telling the truth as you see it can be liberating to all involved. Poet John Lyly wrote, “The true measure of life is not length, but honesty.”
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Fiscal issues may be on the front burner today as you sort out the costs of an unexpected purchase. However, the root of the problem stems from your current desire to possess nice things, tempting you to put a dent in your budget. Rather than spending money haphazardly now, itemize all the potential gains in one column and all the reasons against in the other. You might end up choosing to satisfy your craving regardless of your finances, but at least you will do it with a clear conscience. Tightening your belt is worth it if your heart is happy.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Your little indulgences can lead to a big headache today. It might not be any one single thing, but your key planet Venus is flirting with giant Jupiter, enticing you to go back for seconds on dessert, buy something extravagant, or accept another social invitation even if you don’t have the time. Thankfully, it doesn’t take much energy to rein in your desires just a little. Make your motto quality over quantity and your day will be sweet. Paulo Coelho wrote, “If you conquer yourself, then you conquer the world.”
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You may not finish all your work today, but you still perform well enough to impress your boss. You’re not sure exactly how you manage to get by, but everything seems to fall into place at the last minute. You may have unseen helpers watching over you now as jovial Jupiter sends positive energy to enriching Venus in your 10th House of Career. Leave the short-term distractions behind and confidently set a course into your future. Dr. Ivan Joseph wrote, “I am the captain of my ship and the master of my fate.”
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You’re so confident about your future that nothing can stop you today. In fact, there’s no reason to establish arbitrary limits now because they would only inhibit your self-expression. It’s as if you can instinctively see how far to stretch the envelope so no damage is done to the container. However, it’s prudent to be prepared for a sudden break in the flow when the moody Moon squares unpredictable Uranus. In the meantime, aim high while flying low.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re tired of babysitting everyone around you today. It seems as if others should be perfectly capable of taking care of themselves. Like it or not, too many people rely on you for support when making important life decisions. Your dependability is both a blessing and a curse now, especially if you long for someone to play a similar mentor-like role for you. Prioritizing your needs is the first step to putting your life back in order. Henrik Edberg wrote, “Some things may be equally essential but nothing is more important than a healthy sense of self-esteem and loving yourself.”
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Your ideas could turn into obsessions today, and it feels like there’s little you can do to prevent this transformation. Unfortunately, healthy partnerships can be overwhelming while expansive Jupiter aligns with showy Venus in your 7th House of Companions. Emotions may explode and feelings might get hurt; thankfully, relationship issues will settle down soon if you are willing to make amends. In the meantime, don’t let your search for happiness stand in the way of living a happy life.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You might find yourself in such a wonderful energetic flow today that time passes all too quickly. Naturally, you want this feeling to last longer, but you plan on making the most of this efficient groove while you can. The good news is that you will likely produce something tangible by day’s end that stands as a testament to your hard work. Anthony Robbins says, “There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream, or desire a reality.”
