Someone who is usually quite introverted isn't going to be shy at all today -- because she or he has some great news and wants to share it with the world! This news won't exactly be earth-shattering to you, but you should try to show as much enthusiasm and support as you can -- even if you're not quite feeling it. Your encouragement will go a long way toward making this person feel proud.
Taurus - April 20 - May 20
The stakes just got higher for one of your projects today, but you don't need to worry about this at all. You've got the intensity you need to stay focused on your goals and not let petty dramas distract you. Who cares who's dating whom? Who cares who said what about whom? Idle gossip is a waste of time, and you know it. Let everyone else waste their time and energy giggling over silly things. Put your blinders on and just keep going strong!
Gemini - May 21 - June 21
Today, clean out your emotional closet by finally saying what you've been wanting to say to that certain someone. Keeping your feelings to yourself for too long is not wise -- your worries may turn into paranoia, and you could start to believe things that are just not true. Once you get your feelings and concerns out in the open, you'll be amazed at how much lighter (and healthier) you feel.
Cancer - June 22 - July 22
A new professional relationship is starting off swimmingly, and it's only going to get more rewarding as the days go by. You're finally getting a realistic idea of how capable and admired you are, and you should relish this feeling. You can say farewell to emotional turmoil in this area of your life -- you've moved past all of that negative energy, for once and for all. By making tough choices and being true to what you want, you're growing in the right direction.
Leo - July 23 - August 22
The stakes are getting higher in your life, which is not only exciting but also a good sign that you're getting closer to the success you want. However, you have a little bit more to lose right now. Therefore, you should keep an eye out for people who might not have your best interests at heart. Someone could be devising a scheme to put you at a disadvantage. Someone might be saying things about you that aren't true. Sunshine is a great disinfectant, so get any suspicions out into the open.
Virgo - August 23 - September 22
Today you'll get the sinking feeling that someone is keeping something from you -- some information, his or her honest feelings, or perhaps the fact that a cutie asked for your phone number. Whether you're right or not, this restless feeling is not going to go away until you get to the bottom of it. Ask this person if there is anything you need to be told, and make it clear that you won't be mad if this information is late. You just want to know the truth.
Libra - September 23 - October 22
You're used to being creative with your clothes, work, socializing and writing -- but when was the last time you got creative with your money? Well, it's time you did. Extend your creativity into your financial world, and you will see some amazing results. If you can start to see saving your money as a challenge, then you can have a lot of fun finding creative ways to do so. Cutting corners with style could be your new trademark, and it could help you become a lot more materially comfortable.
Scorpio - October 23 - November 21
That very thin line between confidence and arrogance has been crossed by someone new to your social circle. This is a textbook case of a person who has very poor self-confidence overcompensating for feelings of inferiority. Cut him or her some slack. Once this person gets accustomed to your group of friends, she or he will feel more comfortable and stop bragging so much about things that aren't important.
Sagittarius - November 22-December 21
Today your ideas and daydreams will be much more interesting than anything that anyone around you is going to say or do. Enjoy the entertainment and escape that your mind provides. Feel free to move into your internal world when a dull person drones on and on, or if you're stuck in a boring situation. If you can spend a good amount of time alone today, do so. You will really enjoy being by yourself.
Capricorn - December 22 - January 19
Are you losing your patience with someone who just can't be reasoned with? Don't chastise yourself -- your forbearance has been admirable, and you need to know when to say that enough is enough. Take a step back, and see whether someone else (someone whose patience hasn't been completely tapped out yet) steps forward to take on the burden of dealing with this intractable person. This will probably happen very quickly.
Aquarius - January 20 - February 18
Don't be worried if someone you've been enjoying a lot of time with is suddenly hard to get a hold of. This is nothing personal, and there's no reason to sit this person down and share your feelings of insecurity, or to start being aggressively 'charming.' This person is still interested in you but also has other things to take care of. We all need solitude sometimes. Wait for him or her to contact you.
Pisces - February 19 - March 20
You'll be getting lots of attention today -- which will be both a blessing and a curse. New invitations will be coming fast and furious, but do you have time to accept them all? Probably not. You can immediately decline any that involve travel -- you don't have time for long journeys right now. And then say 'no thanks' to anything you're not sure about. Focus your time on the people you already know, and the activities you know you enjoy.
