Feeling useful will suddenly be extremely important to you -- right now, you are feeling that it doesn't really matter whether or not you get what you want today when you see so many others who don't have anything at all. If you can be of service to someone (anyone) today, you will make yourself feel valuable, like you are able to do just about anything. You are a positive force in people's lives -- even the people who don't know you very well just yet.
Taurus - April 20 - May 20
Your feelings are just under the surface today, which you could choose to see as a good thing or a bad thing. If you are looking for the courage to say something tough to someone who needs to hear it, your trigger temper could help you say it once and for all. But if you are going to amongst sensitive folks you need to impress today, said temper could lead to problems. A sudden emotional reaction won't go over well, so watch your tongue and be ready to hold it.
Gemini - May 21 - June 21
One of those charming (if a tad bit eccentric) characters who is currently in your life is getting a bit too nosy, right now. Your business is, after all, yours. If you want to spare yourself some future exasperation, tell this busybody to mind their own business. Be polite, but prepare to repeat yourself -- because they aren't likely to get the hint right off the bat. Your life is going to be much more fascinating to other people than it is to you right now, believe it or not.
Cancer - June 22 - July 22
Do not flinch if someone delivers you some bad news today -- deep down inside, you knew this was coming. And if you weren't prepared enough to handle this news with ease, do not worry about how things will turn out -- you will only get overwhelmed. Instead, focus on the smaller issues that you can do something about. There are things you can do to ease the blow of this negative news, so do them. Don't let yourself get drawn into the drama. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and carry on.
Leo - July 23 - August 22
Much to your surprise, your finances seem to be slowly falling into place. This is good news, although it does not mean that you should go back to your old ways of shopping and (not) tracking your costs. Now that you have gotten everything under control, don't give up! You've gotten used to life with a tighter belt, and there is still a lot you can learn about how to trim the fat. Keep going, and you will be very proud of what you can save in just a few months.
Virgo - August 23 - September 22
Today, a group effort is the best effort. If you want results, you need to get with the other people who can make it happen. At work or school, align yourself with the folks who know what they are doing, even if they aren't your favorite people on earth. This is not about making friends, it's about making progress on one of your life goals. These other people will be able to provide all the small details that make a big impression in the end. Trust their judgment.
Libra - September 23 - October 22
A recent spat might have left a bad taste in your mouth, but as far as everyone else is concerned, your name has no black mark to it. There have been no grudges held, so you need to do yourself a favor and forget about the unpleasantness that occurred. Focus on the future, put a smile on your face, and put your best foot forward. They've already forgotten all about it, so how about you try doing the same thing? Guilt won't get you where you need to go.
Scorpio - October 23 - November 21
Today will be a very good day, especially if you plan to follow up on someone's progress. They are much farther along than you had expected, and it will warm your heart to see how they are thriving. However, details at work or school might escape you right now if you aren't paying extra careful attention. You should ask for other people to double check your work -- it will give them the opportunity to feel useful, and it will help you know what to look out for next time.
Sagittarius - November 22-December 21
What you have been waiting for is about to come your way today -- but the catch is, you shouldn't let others see just how deliriously happy you are about it! So play it coy and play it cool. Make sure you don't rush ahead of everyone else to snatch this opportunity from their grabby hands! Being too eager will put you at a disadvantage. Follow the lead of other people, and you will find yourself in a very advantageous position. Your patience will pay off, big-time.
Capricorn - December 22 - January 19
You need to step up to bat today, because your group of friends or coworkers is in desperate need of a leader like you! Right now your brain is sharp, your convivial energy is strong, and you have a fantastic ability to find out what the real facts are underlying any current intrigues. He said/she said conflicts won't last long when you're team captain. People need you! Volunteer to take over. Everyone -- including you -- will be glad you did.
Aquarius - January 20 - February 18
One of your partners -- either in romance, life, business or school -- may have a different agenda than you do right now. This is totally fine and won't cause any conflict, but it is something you should be aware of. A joint decision needs to be made soon, and they are leaning in the direction opposite yours. They won't understand your point of view unless you explain it to them, so speak up -- in a calm way. Luckily, you're good at communicating what you need.
Pisces - February 19 - March 20
Being more analytical about your emotions might sound counterintuitive, but it's the perfect approach right now -- especially since your brain is humming along much more efficiently than your slightly-confused heart. Examine any problems you're dealing with today. Think about them objectively. Put yourself in the position of a judge overseeing the details of a case. Once you remove your own bias from the situation, you will quickly see where an easy answer lies.
A burglar from the north of England escaped an off- duty policeman by using a trampoline to bounce over a fence, but was nabbed soon afterwards because he left behind a rucksack containing his name and address.
