Right now, new positions may be open to you, Aries. You're faced with an opportunity for advancement, but it's not a gift. You must work for anything that you really want. The good news is that you're not in this alone. Others are ready and willing to help. Don't be afraid to ask the opinion of someone who has been through a similar situation. An older family member may be of significant help to you, if you are willing to give them the chance to speak their mind. Planning for the future seems unusually easy now that you have a vision.
You can't always get what you want, Taurus, just like the song says! There are some people who just refuse to bend to your will. Making an extreme gesture out of frustration would be a serious mistake. You may have to accept defeat when dealing with a stubborn family member or coworker. Walk away from what you can't change -- acceptance may be too much work. Tonight, spend some quiet time with a partner or loved one who appreciates you for who you are. Don't dwell on your differences, but instead find some common activity that you can both enjoy.
Have you been feeling a bit restless lately, Gemini? Surrender to your wanderlust. Let your feet or fingers carry you to the nearest travel agent as you investigate possible destinations and means of transport. For optimum pleasure, take along your favorite romantic partner. A good time will be had by all! Your lofty aspirations could pay off at work as well. Your plans are both cunning and practical. Use your intellect and creativity to capture the attention of an authority figure that has the power to help you change your career path. Watch out for someone new to appear in your life and knock your socks off.
Try to see yourself through the eyes of others today, Cancer. If others aren't treating you well, it may be that you're putting out victim energy. Take a little more responsibility for your situation. The sooner you realize that the world doesn't owe you anything, the better off you'll be. Besides, you will get more satisfaction out of earning something than having it given to you. Identify your strengths and begin to celebrate them. When working with others, make sure you make room for opinions other than your own. Try not to offend anyone by having a narrow mind.
It takes a lot to change your mind about certain topics, but someone may have more persuasive power over you than you're willing to believe. Your opinions may be written in stone, but someone else carries a powerful chisel. Don't fuss too much about things that have gone wrong. Make omelets from broken eggs and lemonade from lemons. Don't dwell too much on personal failure when asked to join a group. Other people can be surprisingly easy to work with. Brainstorming can be especially successful today if you aren't afraid to speak your mind in front of strangers.
Try not to overreact to something you hear on the radio or television. A disturbing news item starts you worrying about people that you know. Anxiety is a frustrating cycle that doesn't get you anywhere. It's a good time to take advantage of your organizational skills. Find new ways to file documents and arrange furniture. Taking your mind off the major issues will free you from worrying unnecessarily. Tonight, get out of the house and have some fun. If you must stay in, distract yourself from your thoughts with a book or a movie.
Your creativity is at its best today, Libra. Your muse extends its visit. You won't have any trouble finding time to work on your favorite pastime or hobby. Today is another work in progress. You feel alive and full of energy. Everything looks beautiful, and you feel self-confident enough to tackle anything that comes your way. Rely on your intuition when making your decisions. Everything happens for a good reason, and the outcome is wonderful. You could make an important intellectual connection at tonight's event.
Dealing with family members and issues will be the focus of the day. Try not to get caught up in all of the details of who did what to whom, Scorpio. You may not be the cause of all the problems around you, but you can certainly be the solution. Take some initiative, especially if no one else volunteers to do so. Try to avoid inappropriate outbursts of anger. It isn't as important to get to the bottom of the issue as it is to just get it resolved. Take the blame, if necessary, and move on as quickly as possible. Let the changes begin.
Keep those lines of communication open today, Sag! Listen for the phone and check your email frequently. That call to adventure is coming any day now. Make sure you are willing to be spontaneous and drop things at a moment's notice. Some things are just too good to pass up! Group activities are especially favored now. Your spiritual and emotional well-being depends on others. You are lucky to have such good friends. Meeting new people could also be helpful to your self-esteem right now, especially if you allow yourself to be complimented.
A tight focus gets the job done, but it might undercut your ability to enjoy yourself. Try to find the right balance between management and flexibility. Watch your finances closely and avoid overspending. Tighten your budget as much as possible around the bulge of a big plan. You may need more money than you counted on for a large purchase. Let others be generous, if that's their mood. Remember to be gracious and say thank you, but don't dwell too much on a gift of love.
It's a good time to think about the future and make plans to improve it. Try to pay off credit cards: Getting out of debt will feel so good! Dreams can be turned into reality with a little effort and inventiveness. Now is a good time to discover what exactly your unconscious is trying to tell you. Write your dreams down, and try to interpret them. Check all bank transactions, and use a calculator twice when adding up figures today. Be understanding when dealing with friends.
Relationships will be in harmony at this time, and you may even find yourself at peace with the world at large. As this is a wonderful and often rare experience, savor every bit of it. Enjoy these lovely moments by spending some quiet time alone, reading or listening to music. Take some time off and do something fun. A good hike or a walk in the woods will help to relax you, and it will be good for your body as well.
