When you combine time and perseverance, you can create some amazing things -- although the longer the time, the harder it is to maintain that perseverance. Luckily, your energy is suited to long-term goals right now, so do not lose faith in what you are doing. Just because you don't yet see the results you hope for does not mean that they are not coming soon. Giving up is not something that truly appeals to you, so put those thought out of your mind.
Taurus - April 20 - May 20
Flattery, generosity and confidence could get you exactly where you need to be -- in either your career or your romantic life. Get cozy with the people who have the most influence over your life, and turn on the charm! Results should show up right away -- perhaps even before the end of the day. You are gaining more self-assurance, so don't hold back. This is the beginning of a very powerful phase for you -- for the first time in a while, you know you are capable of great things.
Gemini - May 21 - June 21
No one likes to be in conflict with a friend -- least of all you -- but getting into a verbal battle might not be such a bad thing right now. When you get things out into the open, you can start to clear them up, which enables you both to move forward. So don't avoid issues that have been lurking in the background, because they are never going to go anywhere unless you deal with them. Look at them squarely, and they will shrink down to a much more manageable size.
Cancer - June 22 - July 22
Positive possibilities are all around you, so it's a very good time to initiate any major projects you've been considering -- especially social ones. Planning a party is especially smiled on by the stars. Go ahead and put your ideas and plans into action! Everyone is waiting to follow your lead and offer you their best efforts. A foreign influence may speed things up -- especially your pulse! Invest is something special for your next social outing -- a new pair of shoes, perhaps?
Leo - July 23 - August 22
Your local government or another type of bureaucratic organization is a necessary part of your day today, but it's not an experience that you should worry about too much. You like doing your part, and being a responsible citizen will make you feel good. But try not to get too deeply involved, or you could get stuck within the system. Do whatever you can to expedite the situation -- avoid contesting citations or fighting battles that you have no chance of winning.
Virgo - August 23 - September 22
Emotions are running high, and people all around you are acting out in very spur-of-the-moment ways today. Luckily, you are in a very analytical phase, which will protect from all the fluctuations of the day. Watching everyone run hither and thither will be very entertaining for you, especially since you told them a while ago how they could avoid many of these problems. But telling them you told them so will only drive them nuts, so try to hold your tongue.
Libra - September 23 - October 22
If you are traveling today, your traveling companions will be especially chatty -- if you want to avoid getting stuck in a long conversation, bring along a thick book you can bury your head in. Not everyone has completely mastered the art of courtesy, and a rude comment could shock you this afternoon -- instead of educating them on how they should treat another person, just let it roll off your back. Why do them any favors by taking them seriously?
Scorpio - October 23 - November 21
Sometimes having an open mind requires having a brave personality -- and you have the necessary courage today! Stay in the room when the conversation gets controversial. Hear people out and respect their viewpoints, even if you totally disagree with them. When a topic makes you uncomfortable, you owe it to yourself to explore that topic more. Ponder why you believe what you believe, and understand that just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean that they're a bad person.
Sagittarius - November 22-December 21
Today offers you the perfect opportunity to move away from an emotionally driven viewpoint and toward a more analytical one on a tough issue. Thinking things through logically will give you some distance from a potentially upsetting situation. Moving toward a more mature lifestyle might not sound appealing at first, but if you shift your focus to what's really important, you'll be able to see things a lot more clearly. Don't worry that being more serious means being more boring!
Capricorn - December 22 - January 19
Even if you're surrounded by adults all day long, at certain points of your day it might feel as though you have been plopped down in the middle of a daycare center. A few of your people will be acting like children and exhibiting petty behavior. You shouldn't even bother trying to understand why. You have far too many important, rewarding things to do to start wasting time on trying to help them figure out how to act like grownups. Avoid them.
Aquarius - January 20 - February 18
Just because someone is much older than you is no reason to think that they don't have a lot of valuable information to share with you. Different generations have different experiences, but some truths are timeless. Right now, your older relatives have interesting tidbits to share with you, so get back in touch with aunts, uncles or grandparents whom you haven't talked to in a long time. A short phone call will offer you a sweet -- and educational -- break from your day.
Pisces - February 19 - March 20
Have you ever heard the expression 'You can attract more flies with honey than you can with vinegar'? Well, it's true -- especially today! So show your softer side, and you will get a very good reaction from the people you meet. Instead of trying to be the most intimidating person in the world, try to be the most considerate. Your smile will work wonders, so don't be afraid to use it -- having a face that aches from smiling too much should be your goal today.
