Aries

You may be talking so fast today that other people can’t understand everything you’re saying. Nevertheless, it feels as if you’re making real headway as you strive to stabilize interpersonal connections.

Unfortunately, normalizing communication channels cannot be done preemptively because it requires a tacit agreement between all parties. Author Susan Gale wrote, “Sometimes it’s just a matter of finding a little common ground and then building a relationship on it.”

Taurus

You’re not afraid to let someone know what your time is worth, especially if you’re selling your expertise or services. You want to establish a fair price for your work.

Although you might think you’re being as clear as a bell, people still may miss your point completely, hearing only what they choose to hear. Nevertheless, reasserting yourself to establish boundaries may be exactly what is needed to keep your efforts on track. Be firm but kind when stating your case.

Gemini

You can’t make up your mind today as you struggle to decide what kind of role you want to play in the current drama. A relationship issue is exploding to the surface in slow motion, and you’re not sure how involved you need to be in the process.

Don’t just flow with the energy in the name of conformity; sometimes the course of least resistance is the most harmful one. Let there be peace on Earth and let it begin with you.

Cancer

There are plenty of valid reasons to share what’s in your heart today, but your logic may be nowhere to be found. Rather than working yourself into a state of frustration because you can’t find the words you need, just continue with your day the best you can.

Temporarily forget about seeing the path ahead. The only way you’re going to prepare yourself for the future is to live in it. No more waiting; move boldly toward the life you want. Businessman Jack Welch said, “Control your own destiny or someone else will.”

Leo

It’s as if you step out of one closet and into the open, only to realize that you’re now hiding something else. It’s been said that life is like an onion; as quickly as you peel away outer layers today, new ones are generated from the core.

You eagerly anticipate the limelight shining on you, but circumstances aren’t going to make it easy. If you allow your energy to ebb and flow naturally, there is no need to use force. Playwright Jessica Hagedorn wrote, “Adaptability is the simple secret of survival.”

Virgo

You might be totally buzzed today as you inform your coworkers about your preferences. However, you may be extremely disappointed when your hopes prove to be left unfulfilled.

Communication grows more strained as your situation goes viral and everyone seems to know about your plight. But don’t give up; your persistence pays off in ways you cannot yet imagine. Frederick Douglass said, “Without struggle there can be no progress.”

Libra

You could be obsessed with taking a trip to an exotic destination, one that holds a special place in your heart. But an entirely different location might catch your eye now, dazzling you with a plethora of possibilities. Wandering off path distracts you from what matters most.

You have an excellent chance of realizing your dream if you follow your intuition and not your logic. Lao Tzu wrote, “A journey of one thousand miles must begin with a single step.”

Scorpio

You are capable of using your words like crowbars today, prying open secret entryways to previously unknown parts of your brain. Your curiosity is a powerful motivational force, driving you to plummet the depths of your subconscious now.

Although everything feels new, you’re no stranger to exploring your own inner space. The deeper you can dive, the more there is to discover.

Sagittarius

People seem particularly annoying today, especially when they are talking at you rather than with you. In a turn of the tables, you get the feeling that others are looking for approval now and are less interested in intense conversations.

Meanwhile, you’re on the hunt for a deeper connection with the Mysteries, one that could help you reestablish your own place within the cosmos. Henry David Thoreau wrote, “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.”

Capricorn

You might be a bit scattered on the job today as you run to and fro, without much to show for your efforts. Contrary to logic, you could achieve higher levels of productivity if you simply cut back on how much you attempt to accomplish.

Eliminating superfluous activities enables you to apply your skills more effectively within a limited range of application. Step out of the rat race long enough to create a new list of priorities. Journalist Francois Gautier wrote, “More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity.”

Aquarius

Working within the confines of a schedule can be a real headache today. You might be quite surprised with what you can do if there’s only a minimum amount of structure to your day.

Although the logical fix for frenetic energy is to force yourself to follow through on one task before starting the next, you’re not restrained by reason now. Throw away your calendar and respond to your creative impulses as much as possible. Moshe Dayan wrote, “Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.”

Pisces

Your plan is to fulfill your responsibilities today, but you could be overwhelmed with complicated emotional dynamics at home. A family relationship may demand so much of your energy that your work suffers.

You might be able to bend time and space now in order to get away with handling your personal business without negatively impacting your professional world. However, you can’t sustain this kind of effort for too long. Do what you must and then return to your pursuit of excellence with a clear conscience.
