This is a day when you will feel a strong drive for successes -- but this drive might be triggered more by jealousy than by a genuine desire to attain a certain goal. The heights that someone else has climbed look easy to attain, and you think you can give it a try. But keeping up with Joneses is not all it's cracked up to be, so do not sacrifice important things just for the sake of following someone else's path. You have your own route to take, so don't go for emulation.
Taurus - April 20 - May 20
A lot of details are still up in the air about a big event or adventure -- and some exciting travel plans might have to be put on hold a little bit longer. Unfortunately, the uncertainty around you will only grow for the next few days. If you can increase in activity in your life right now, you will be able to concentrate on keeping yourself calm and positive about no knowing everything all the time. Let the universe take you where you are supposed to go.
Gemini - May 21 - June 21
Despite what a friend might say today, when they rise to a more authoritative role in your life, they are not going to be much different than the person who's in charge now -- so don't pin your high expectations on them. Instead, make it clear that you have confidence in them, but are not holding them to any specific promises. The don't quite know what is in store for them, although you have a clearer picture. Just be there for them and be supportive.
Cancer - June 22 - July 22
The flirty side of you may not feel like coming out in full force today, but that won't stop people from tossing some sweet talk your way! And by the middle of the day, when you're wondering what the heck has gotten in to people, you yourself might start to feel like giving a cute stranger a smile or starting some small talk with an interesting looking person. The positive attention that other people will be giving you will be just the ticket you needed to get a new attitude going.
Leo - July 23 - August 22
You have to deal with someone who has a pretty large ego today, but you'll have fun dealing with their arrogance. This person thinks they know everything about everything, and probably won't be too open to your input and ideas. This is just as well, because why would you want to contribute to a project or plan that you know they're going to take all the credit for anyway? Do what they tell you to do and don't waste your time trying to correct their mistakes.
Virgo - August 23 - September 22
Someone with a critical eye will offer you some unsolicited advice today, and you should not be afraid to hear them out. Their reputation for painful honesty should be no excuse -- your feelings don't matter when real knowledge is out there to be learned. Do not sacrifice an education just for the sake of your ego. If you do, you are not giving yourself enough credit. You are in a solid learning phase, and your mind is ready to take in new information in an objective way.
Libra - September 23 - October 22
Being more expressive is a very good thing to try today -- because expression is necessary to evolve into the person you want to be. So go ahead and share your feelings with a close partner or friend -- no matter what they are. Utilize your personality and express yourself in the best way you know how today. Singing, dancing, cooking or even just goofing around are all great ways to display how you're feeling. If you keep your emotions inside or mask them, you'll be wasting your time.
Scorpio - October 23 - November 21
A very important decision is going to need to be made today, and you might not have as big of a say in how it is made as you would like. Your power in this particular situation is fading, so it would be in your best interest to not try to force the issue. Trying to flex muscles that you don't have could make you look a bit silly. A little bit of self-control will pay off big down the line, when you will be noted as being a very reasonable and levelheaded person.
Sagittarius - November 22-December 21
Someone has much higher expectations of you than they have a right to. In order to prevent any misunderstandings, be honest and be direct about what your comfort level is -- and if you have to put certain tasks off for another day, then do so. There will be a lot of distracted people to deal with right now, and it could be quite difficult to separate yourself from the growing conflict. All of this disharmony could affect your life in an unpredictable way.
Capricorn - December 22 - January 19
Finally, you're getting more comfortable in what used to be a very uncomfortable role. You never thought you would fit, but it is looking more and more like this situation was custom made for your skills and intellect! Your stamina has helped you maintain composure through a few petty dramas recently, and it will continue to help you keep the right perspective on the people in your life. Someone who claims to have your back at all times is not to be trusted anymore.
Aquarius - January 20 - February 18
If someone can't say what they want or what they mean straight out, then don't waste your time trying to decode their subtle messages. You do not have time to deal with the subliminal stuff, and it's not too much to ask that people be clear in their communications -- in fact, it is necessary! People who hesitate will be more than a little annoying for you today, because they are afraid to commit to one idea. That's not a problem you have, so why tolerate it in them? Get them to commit.
Pisces - February 19 - March 20
If you feel like your career could use a shot in the arm, send out a few 'how you doing?' emails to friends in high places. Chances are, one of them could have an interesting lead for you. While you're in your email account, get back in touch with long distance friends you haven't talked to in a while and share the most recent details of whatever you've been up to -- no matter how boring you might think it is. It's time to connect back with the people who make life so pleasant.
