Aries (March 21-April 19)

You need to take the complete opposite approach of your instincts and hold back your thoughts today. If others are arguing, let them. Sit back and watch. Once they reach an impasse and can’t get anywhere, that’s when you step up and unveil your brilliant idea.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Quite a challenging problem falls in your lap today, but for good reason. You’re the only one around that has the patience to deal with it. That’s the reason no one else has figured it out. On the other hand, you will solve this with nothing more than the necessary persistence and determination.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You may find yourself being pressured by a manipulative person today. But two can play that game, and few as well as you. It could turn into a bit of a quarrel, but do what you have to do. Just keep in mind, your sarcasm won’t be helpful. Put them in their place, but stay classy.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You may experience troubles at home or work, but what’s driving the unease with someone may not become clear yet for another few days. Resist the urge to stir the pot by asking questions. The answer will emerge on its own.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Some big egos could get into a power struggle today, and you’d be wise not to bring yours into the mix. They may play dirty, and you don’t want to end up in the mud. Let them fight it out, and don’t waste your energy. Instead, be the go-to person they’ll call upon when they get stuck.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

You may be forced to weigh between the stronger of two less-than-perfect choices today, but at least it’s a step forward. Don’t let it discourage you. Just because you can’t get everything the way you want at this moment, it doesn’t mean you can’t improve the situation later.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Do more listening than talking today. Especially keep attuned for something someone says in passing that will stand out to you. They are underplaying something for a reason. Don’t be gullible. It’s more important than they are letting on. Pay attention.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Although your investigative instincts will be calling you with a loud voice, steer clear of anything that looks, smells, or sounds like trouble today. The problems coming along today aren’t your problems, so keep it that way. Sit this dance out.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

No matter how strong the impulse you feel to cut to the chase, the stars advise that you skip the shortcuts today. Only one road will get you where you need to be, and trying to do an end-around will only lead to more complications.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Give yourself a pat on the back! However, others will be doing so first! Your methodical methods have paid off, and you’ll be recognized for following the rules and keeping yourself honest. You have become an influence and inspiration to everyone around you, and it will be duly noted!

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Coasting through life just doesn’t get it for you, and you may find yourself bored, even frustrated doing the same old same old today. The remedy is to give yourself a little spark of inspiration by doing something new or a little wild. At the very least, it will recharge your batteries.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

According to the stars, daydreaming is just the ticket for you today, so feel free to take a ride into fantasyland as many times as you are inspired to do so. Important ideas, revelations, realizations, hopes, and goals may come to mind and point you in a meaningful direction.
