Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

There aren't many shades of grey in your life today. If there is someone or something that you want, your feelings may grow so intense that you act in a foolish manner. Fortunately, you can avoid causing problems if you are able to recognise your compulsive ways. But suppressing your emotions won't help your cause; your best bet is to be aware of your own feelings before moderating them. Nothing is as black or white as it appears.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)

You may have to rethink your strategy today even if you initially knew what you wanted to say. Paradoxically, the stronger your desires become, the easier it is to rationalise inaction. Take whatever time you need to reach a conclusion. But once you decide, push forward to make something happen. Sharing what's in your heart paves the way to success. Fear of the unknown is not a valid reason to delay.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 22)

You may run into trouble today with someone who tries to exert control over your feelings. Fortunately, you're clever enough to transform a complicated situation into a memorable time for all involved. Be the hero of the melodrama now, and escape from other people's manipulative behaviour. Remember, this is your show; you aren't responsible for playing a supporting role in anyone else's play.

Cancer (Jun23 - Jul 23)

You can bring an incredibly rich perspective to the table today, but it's difficult to open the channels of communication that are necessary to get your project off the ground. One sensible place to start is to weigh up all your strengths and weaknesses, so you know exactly how much you have to offer. Unfortunately, if you're not appreciated at work, a current annoyance could turn into a growing resentment. Nevertheless, it's not wise to express negativity now, unless it leads you to creating positive change.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)

Almost anyone you encounter today could be the catalyst that gets you back on track. It isn't likely that you're eager to show your vulnerability because you feel that this gives too much of your power away. Your self-esteem depends on being in control of your own boundaries, so don't allow others to cross the line and talk you into saying more than you want. Nevertheless, being too defensive could close a window of opportunity before it even opens.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

You could be feeling more judgemental now than you prefer, but you might attempt to maintain a positive attitude with everything that's happening anyway. You're riding large emotional waves and might not be able to suppress your intense feelings. At first, you aren't interested in retelling old stories from your past just so you can dramatize a current situation. Thankfully, there are simpler alternatives than creating a scene. Taking a slower and steadier approach is better than upsetting the proverbial apple cart.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

You're not in the mood to play host to someone you aren't emotionally connected to now. Nevertheless, it may still be your job to make others feel comfortable, no matter how you feel. If you just bury your needs, suppressed anger could rise to the surface before you know it. Unfortunately, no one benefits if you lose your temper. Acknowledge your desires, shake your current negativity and make a plan to enjoy yourself no matter what.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

You must complete your current round of assignments before moving on to the next project, but you might believe that you're already finished. However, there's still a lot more to accomplish and your resistance only prolongs the stress. Swing into action even if you're not feeling very motivated. Instead of procrastinating now, use opportunistic Jupiter's connection to your key planet Pluto in order to get the ball rolling.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

You might not find the rest and relaxation you seek now because you currently carry your workload with you wherever you go. Face your obligations rather than attempting to escape them. Look beyond the present moment; you don't have to do everything right now. Although you might blame others for your predicament, they are not the problem. Before starting an unnecessary conflict, remember that the tension will probably disperse on its own as you complete your job.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)

It feels as if your efforts are coming to fruition now, and there's no time to lose; you must pick the produce while it's still fresh. You might even consider your overall professional role as you weigh all your options. Thankfully, other people in your life can be surprisingly supportive of where your current path is leading. Just remember that there's no need to make anyone uncomfortable with an uncharacteristic emotional display. Keep your intentions clear and follow your bliss.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)

The emphasis on relationships continues today, but it's difficult to stay focused on the practical details right in front of you. A current conversation could quickly turn to more serious topics. Although a discussion about metaphysics or life-after-death might be fascinating, don't use these subjects just to avoid a challenging issue that needs resolution. Managing the pressing affairs first will leave you time to explore the outer limits until your heart is content.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You are growing tired of fighting those who resist you at every turn. The pressure continues to build as your boss, or someone else who claims to be in charge, places stop signs in your path. Instead of just acting out in a rebellious manner, handle each blockage separately without making the mistake of lumping them into one major obstacle. Remember to choose your battles carefully, as your perceptions could be further bent out of shape than you realise.
