People may not mean to step on one another’s dreams, and yet discouraging words could be exchanged while Mercury and Neptune are at odds. Refuse to take offense. Let the opinions and information you hear inform instead of upset you. This is easier to pull off if you can detach yourself from what you do. You are not your role.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t like to force things to fit, because even if they finally move into place, they are likely to pop back out at the slightest provocation. You’d rather keep searching for something that feels absolutely right.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Art has a way of challenging you in a way that strictly logical pursuits cannot. It’s as though the music fully grasps you whether or not you can fully grasp the music.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You use your instinct and intuition when there is little else to go on. But if you also remember to use it when you have plenty of other information, the result will be impressive.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can speculate all the live long day about what might happen if you try out your various options, but you’ll never know for sure until you put yourself in the situation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Contract negotiations, legal matters and joint ventures are among the favored opportunities of the day. At the front of your mind is your desire to help others with their goals, and this is what allows you to get your own needs met.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Laziness is an obstacle you’ve overcome plenty of times in your life, but usually it’s someone else’s laziness. You’ve always been among the hardest working of people, and that trend continues today. Your reward is imminent.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re likely to encounter a strong masculine energy, and the smoothness of your day will depend on how well you work with this kind of force. Figure out who does this well, and take your cue from this person.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your work habits may seem erratic to the casual passerby, but they don’t understand the politics involved. Sometimes you have to circle around your project in order to appease all of the right people.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you are patient enough to commit to taking slow and deliberate action, you’ll avoid mistakes and increase your awareness to ensure that you are actually accomplishing something.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Recycling isn’t just for glass and cardboard. You’ll find something to reuse and repurpose, and the extra value you squeeze from this will help you reach a financial goal.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your needs will swing like a pendulum. First, you crave comfort, and then, excitement. You’ll flirt with melodrama and romance and then return to that stable, steady source.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re likely to become quickly involved with new people, and you’ll place your trust easily, not making anyone work too hard for it. As long as you don’t make agreements that stretch beyond today, this will turn out fine.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your personal magnetism is amplified. You’ll use this charisma surge to create a reversal. You’re good at building things and relationships in 2014. February’s work focus oddly leads to more fun. April and August are best for travel. Competition will motivate you to make a serious commitment and stick with it. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 31, 28 and 44.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: The best topics are the ones that interest the people you’re talking to. TAURUS: Expensive beauty treatments are unnecessary – so don’t go overboard. You’re already attractive to that certain someone. GEMINI: It may feel like someone is being fake, and that’s fine as long as you realize that and have fun with it. CANCER: People with whom you’re not comfortable inspire you to bring your A-game. LEO: What you know about love is different from what your friend knows. VIRGO: Only those whom you really like are able to unnerve you. LIBRA: When you fan the flames of love too hard, you risk extinguishing them. SCORPIO: You’ll connect with someone who is just as concerned with making the world a better place as you are. SAGITTARIUS: You can tell whether a person is loyal by the way they speak of their ex. CAPRICORN: The more you love the more you are capable of loving. AQUARIUS: Your words are simple, but your intention is communicated with your whole body. PISCES: Your love life will be unpredictable, and that’s just the way you like it.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: It’s hard to tell who multifaceted people really are until someone new highlights a different side. As the Capricorn moon reflects the light of the Sagittarius sun, these signs notice each other in a light they couldn’t see before. Sagittarius brings out the wild side of Capricorn, and Capricorn is emboldened by the adventurous Sagittarian spirit. Spur-of-the-moment travel will ignite the romance.
