Whether or not you fancy yourself a 'tech-head,' you will be forced to deal with a lot of issues involving computers or machines today. These issues will affect your professional future -- so if you are less than confident about your abilities in this area, it's very important that you ask for the help you need. You won't impress anyone (or learn anything new) if you pretend that you already know how to do everything.
Taurus - April 20 - May 20
Stepping out of the action is the smartest thing to do today. No matter how much your passions are stirred by an injustice you witness, you simply have no place in this fight. Let the people who are involved handle this by themselves. Be content that you believe what you believe, and that you live consistently with those beliefs. You can't change how other people operate -- it's a sad fact, but it's true.
Gemini - May 21 - June 21
There will be some miscommunication -- or a lack of communication -- today, either in a romantic context or in some other emotionally charged area. You may hear a promise being made when it hasn't been. Or you may expect a phone call or email that doesn't come. To protect yourself from being hurt, keep your expectations realistic. This phase of ambiguity will not last long -- do yourself a favor today, and focus on things that you can do something about.
Cancer - June 22 - July 22
Sometimes you are so in sync with your friends and loved ones that you are sure you can read one another's minds -- but you can't. Do not take clear communication for granted, especially when it comes to the people you care about the most. Internally going over your emotions again and again will not be as effective as discussing things with others -- and hearing their feedback. Do you think that you'll be a burden if you ask to bend their ears? Think again.
Leo - July 23 - August 22
There is a lot of potential for rewarding verbal communication today, so it's a great time for getting together with a friend or two to talk about big ideas. Sharing your hopes and dreams is always good fun, and together you all may be able to cook up some plans that will actually help make some of those dreams come true. The best resources for ideas are the people who care about you, so listen when they make suggestions -- no matter how crazy those suggestions may sound.
Virgo - August 23 - September 22
Cold logic is for math problems and science projects -- not for introducing new people into your life! The next time that you're stuck in a large social group with little warning, do not put up your guard and try to size people up before you open up. Walk into the room with your mind and heart wide open. It is time to let your warmth and compassion do the talking. They create and inspire much more interesting conversations than analysis and critical thinking ever could.
Libra - September 23 - October 22
Are you frantically searching for new stimulation because you feel mired in the same old same old? Well, stop. New ideas and inspiration are notoriously ill behaved, and they never come when called. Keep yourself busy with your necessary daily activities -- and just when you least expect it, you'll see an opportunity for a challenging adventure. Do not worry about feeling bored. You won't have this problem for long!
Scorpio - October 23 - November 21
You can never be too careful in business, especially today, when there are so many exciting offers bouncing around. If you have even an inkling of concern about something that's brewing today, you need to take all the steps you can to ensure that the move you make is the right one. Do not be hesitant to ask for extra time to go over the details. People should understand your caution -- and if someone doesn't, you should factor that into your decision.
Sagittarius - November 22-December 21
Buzz, buzz, buzz -- your life is a hive of activity today, and you are going to be one very busy bee! You will definitely be in the role of leader today. Inspiring all the people around you will be easy and logical -- you don't have to employ any tricky maneuvers or mind games to get people to do what you need them to do. All you have to do is ask! In fact, everyone pretty much knows what needs to be done -- it's up to you to get them motivated.
Capricorn - December 22 - January 19
Just as you'd peel an avocado or scrape a sticky price tag off a new vase, today you have to work to get rid of some undesirable things in your life. Toss out what isn't needed, what doesn't feel right and what isn't flattering. This could include something as simple as a pair of old shoes or as complicated as a romantic partner who just doesn't have his or her heart in your relationship. Kick it to the curb and walk away -- without looking back!
Aquarius - January 20 - February 18
Believe it or not, everyone has a creative side -- even (or especially) you! Creativity is your spirit's way of communicating and revealing itself to the outside world, and it is a wonderful way to release powerful, positive energy into the universe. Today, use your creativity to make a statement about who you are. Act in an unusual way that gets you noticed and offers an opportunity for others to learn something new about you. Wrap your message in a surprising and lovely package.
Pisces - February 19 - March 20
You are very sensitive right now, so this is not an ideal day to venture into new situations. The stars suggest that if you need to travel, you should bring a lot of creature comforts along to ease your experience and keep yourself comfortable. Strange locations could exacerbate your confusion, and getting lost is a distinct possibility. Staying home is the best option for today, but if you can't swing that, be sure to give yourself some extra time to adjust.
