Today, conflict could lead to some very rewarding and constructive exchanges between you and someone else. Of course, that doesn't mean you should go out looking for a fight, but it does mean that if someone causes a bit of friction in your life, then they are someone you should spend a little bit more time with! Wouldn't it be boring if everyone agreed with everything you said? Celebrate the fact that people all have their own way of thinking about things.
Taurus - April 20 - May 20
Hold your fire today when someone bursts onto the scene and comes dangerously close to messing up something you've been working on for a very long time! You might want to rip their head off and tell them to get lost, but you have to be tolerant of their presence, and listen to what they have to say -- whether you like it or not. This is a politically delicate situation, and they have to have their say. Let them feel like they are doing something, and then continue down your planned path.
Gemini - May 21 - June 21
Feel like you've been on a roller coaster ride over the past few days? If so, you're in for some welcome news: all signs point toward today be a very good day for you! It will be full of just enough of a mix of new, exciting things and old, comforting things to keep you smiling. A nice surprise toward the afternoon will remind you of how much you are loved by the friends you've chosen to be in your life. You are on the right track, and you totally know it.
Cancer - June 22 - July 22
If you feel like you are stuck at a crossroads today, you simply need to remember your plans for the future in order to know exactly where you need to go. It's more important than ever for you to stick to your initial plans, and not veer off into new projects or adventures that seem tantalizing. Put the blinders on if you have to, because you need to stay focused on what is ahead of you. Resist anyone's invitation to 'try something a little bit different' today.
Leo - July 23 - August 22
It's time to shift your focus -- and start dealing with the opposite end of the spectrum. So if you're obsessed with celebrities and gossip magazine, pick up a news publication and get informed about the current issues. If you don't know who the heck the hottest starlets are right now, click around to a few gossip websites and enlighten yourself about who's marrying whom and who's divorce is final. Mix up your intellect and you'll become even more interesting.
Virgo - August 23 - September 22
It might feel like there are too many overbearing people in your life right now. Everyone seems to know exactly what you should do next, and they aren't shy about telling you! These bossy bosses truly do have your best interests at heart, so try not to be too angry about their meddlesome ways. Just smile, and thank them for their interest. But make it clear to them that you are in charge of your life, and right or wrong, your decisions are the ones that will guide your life.
Libra - September 23 - October 22
Talking about your hopes for the future with friends and family members is a nice way to pass the day, but it does little to make actual changes happen in your life. It might be time to take a break and go off on your own for a while. Solitude will reignite your individualism and remind you that ultimately, you're the only person who can take you where you want to go in life. Get back in touch with the things you (and only you) want for yourself. Start making them happen.
Scorpio - October 23 - November 21
Today, you might have to watch yourself when you exposed to your greatest temptation. If it's cookies or cake, you should preemptively fill up on vegetables so you won't be weak. If it's that certain someone who always gets your heart beating faster, you should just get out of there as quickly as you can! You know what's bad for you, and you know you need to stay away from it right now. So do whatever you have to do get out of the danger zone -- and into the green zone.
Sagittarius - November 22-December 21
Are you hungry for a new adventure? Of course you are! There is so much in life to discover, and today is just as good as any other day to start exploring! Travel is a great idea right now -- especially travel to a foreign country. Get online and start planning your next trip. If you don't have the time or the finances for such an elaborate expedition, then just grab some friends and check out a restaurant that serves food from a country you'd like to visit. Feed your wanderlust with food.
Capricorn - December 22 - January 19
It won't be easy to get alone time today -- your presence will be much in demand from two different groups. So if you are craving some solo hours, you could be facing a tough challenge. If you can, just give in and get together with the people who are clamoring for your attention. There will be plenty of time in the coming days to go off on your own and think or relax. For now, you will need to try to find happiness in the energy generated when you're in the midst of people.
Aquarius - January 20 - February 18
It might not feel good to give up some of what you want today, but a compromise is called for. It could be something as minor as choosing a different place to eat because of someone's dietary preferences, or it could be something as major as altering your entire schedule to make things easier on someone else. Propose that things go their way this time, but maybe your way next time. You don't have to roll over and let them walk all over you, but you should give a little bit more.
Pisces - February 19 - March 20
You have a lot of wishes for where you want your career to go from here -- and today, one of these wishes could come one giant step closer to being a reality. The work you've been putting into things is going to pay off very soon, but you should still give it some nudges here and there. Ask a few penetrating questions, and you will love what you hear. The efforts you make today can yield exciting last minute invitations, so be ready to go at a moment's notice.
