Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

The tension between you and someone special might begin to ease up today, but the source of the stress doesn't necessarily go away. You can take the easy way out and simply move on to the next situation demanding your attention. However, this is a squeaky wheel gets the grease type of strategy. Even if you remove yourself from the initial problem, it will return unless you face the issue and push it into the light of consciousness. It's time to muster up some of that famous Aries courage and get to work.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)

It's very possible that you don't agree with the direction being suggested to you, but it could be self-defeating to openly go against your partner's wishes. Nevertheless, you don't have to be afraid to say yes to a spontaneous invitation; trying something new might serve you well today. In the meantime, remember to let go of your plan if others don't embrace it. Your enthusiasm is an asset as long as you aim it in the right direction.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 22)

You must decide whether to change your loyalties today or stick with your previous commitment. Your nagging anxiety may push you to choose sooner than you wish. Nevertheless, your discomfort settles down throughout the day as your path becomes clear. Don't allow self-doubt to get in your way. You can influence your future by visualising it, once you know what you want. Work hard and let the power of positive thinking do its magic.

Cancer (Jun23 - Jul 23)

There's no reason to compromise your needs today. You have a precise idea of what you want and are wise to reveal your desires to those who matter. Sharing your feelings may seem scary at first, but your story will flow easily once you begin talking. Others will respect you for taking a stand whether or not they agree with your decisions. You're armed with unabashed optimism, serious determination and innocent playfulness, which might just be an unbeatable combination.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)

Your positive attitude goes a long way toward progressing along the road to success, but even your closest friends might not understand what's motivating you today. Your actions may appear erratic and out of character, but you know exactly what you're doing. Unfortunately, your confidence could backfire unless you're willing to slow down and bring others with you. Avoid the temptation to strike out on your own, even if it takes longer to accomplish your objectives. Reaching your destination is sweeter when you share it with those you love.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Keeping yourself busy is not a substitute for being productive. You realise that part of your job now is to sort out the meaning from the increasing amount of trivial distractions. The pace is growing more hectic day by day and you might feel as if you have no place to hide. However, it's not wise to cut yourself off from the current flow of information because there are gems of truth buried in the incoming data and it's up to you to find them.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

It seems as if it's no use trying to keep secrets now because everyone already appears to know what's going on in your life. Don't get discouraged; the chaos peaks today and then the energy will begin to settle down. The cosmic forces that are magnifying your social world are almost ready to move on and your life will soon return to normal. Ironically, you may find yourself missing the excitement sooner than you think, so enjoy all the activity while it lasts.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

You have been quietly watching your own show play inside your head, wondering how to bring your story out into the open. Finally, heightened anxiety may propel you toward taking action today. The timing is good, but make certain your risk is worth it because you won't be able to hit the undo key once you make your move. Nevertheless, don't overshoot your target; expending too much energy now isn't wise. It's better to achieve your goals than to fall short empty-handed and exhausted.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

You may have high ideals and big dreams, only to discover that they are out of place in your external world today. Thankfully, this incongruity isn't a problem. Rather than giving up on your own vision of your future, relegate it to the fantasy realm, where you are free to do whatever you want without external consequences. Keeping the dream alive now is more important than reaching your goal. Taking care of your responsibilities, while exploring your imagination, allows you to experience the best of both worlds.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)

Yesterday's stress begins to settle back down today, especially if you expressed what was on your mind. At first, you might be pleasantly surprised by all the emotional support you receive, but then reality sinks in and you realise how much work you have ahead. Your optimism serves you well, but don't let blind faith be a substitute for following through on your promises. Remember, everything looks a little closer now than it actually is. Reach for the stars but be grateful if you only touch the treetops.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)

Keeping your plans in perspective is challenging because you're painting the future in very bright colours. It's tempting to believe that a large project will require less time and money than it actually does. It's easy to assume that other people will do everything they say, but chances are they, too, will fall short of their promises. Nevertheless, this is not a time for denial or doubt; you can make your dreams come true as long as you don't turn a sensible idea into an unrealistic fantasy.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Your bubble might not actually burst today as long as you accept that it can't get any bigger. The safest way out of your current predicament is to figure out how to deflate it before it explodes. You helped to create the present circumstances by inflating a perfectly good idea until it became too big to handle. Rather than considering your involvement as a problem, think of it as an adventure. You're the specialist on the bomb squad and have been sent in to defuse a tense situation. This is the stuff that creates heroes.
