Capricorn
22-Dec to 19-Jan

Put aside those loose ends for now and concentrate on initiating something that's near and dear to your heart. It's a fantastic time to lay the foundations for a project that needs lots of time and TLC. So start drawing up plans, brainstorming and building those castles in the air. Make sure to give yourself plenty of freedom. Think of the sky not as being the limit, but more like a guideline.

Aquarius
20-Jan to 18-Feb

You excel at solving puzzles on your own, but right now, holding your problems in won't make you stronger -- on the contrary, it might deprive you of the help that's well within your reach if you could only make the smallest gesture toward it. Remember that asking for aid doesn't make you weak -- it makes you smart. So if something's been on your mind, grab a friend and pour out your troubles to their sympathetic ears.

Pisces
19-Feb to 20-Mar

How long has it been since you made a real effort to get away from it all? Okay, you may not be able to get away to Aruba on the spur of the moment (although if you can, you definitely should), but you can find a few moments to spend some TLC on yourself. How about a walk in the park before work? Maybe a few hours after work with the phone unplugged and your favorite book? It's amazing how refreshing even a brief respite can be.

Aries
21-Mar to 20-Apr

The stars are gently reminding you that there's more than one point of view, and you need to take a certain party's perspective into account before you move ahead. You're moving with brisk progress toward what you desire -- and you're about to get it, too -- but it's important that you don't trample or shove anyone out of the way, especially if you want them to stick around for the next phase of the journey. So stop and inquire about someone's feelings.

Taurus
21-Apr to 21-May

If anyone is entitled to have some fun, it's you -- and it's about darned time too. You've turned down all kinds of wonderful temptations lately, in just about every category. But just as you start to wonder why, the universe will arrange to deliver your reward -- a one-of-a-kind reward designed especially for you. Don't question it, and don't worry about why it's there. Entice an appropriate playmate and enjoy!

Gemini
22-May to 21-Jun

You excel at beginnings, but when it comes to seeing things through 'til the end, you may need a little help. Team up with a like-minded buddy or coworker -- one who shares a similar outlook but a different skill set would be perfect -- and see if the two of you can't combine forces to make things come out just right. What's most important is that at the end of this day's hard work, you make sure that you both get the credit.

Cancer
22-Jun to 22-Jul

It seems like everyone in your immediate vicinity has been given a mission impossible, and they've all chosen to accept it -- without informing you. Meanwhile, here you sit, feeling like you might get knocked over in the ensuing fracas. Even if you're not in the middle of the action, you're really the only one getting things done right now, most of all because you understand the value of hard work over putting on a good show.

Leo
23-Jul to 22-Aug

Giving up something you love just to please someone you love just doesn't make any sense. You and a good friend or sweetheart might be locking horns over an activity that you see as necessary, but that they view as a frivolous self-indulgence. Agree to disagree -- or better yet, invite them along to experience the joys of something that you know first-hand. Who knows -- you might just make a convert out of them yet!

Virgo
23-Aug to 23-Sep

Your best self is currently on display and drawing plenty of admirers, so make sure you're not inadvertently pushing them away by donning a cool facade. The time is ripe to work out the finer details in terms of negotiations of contracts at work, especially if you have a partner that you usually work with. In fact, any interactions and relationships with others are highlighted right now, so make the most of these easy influences regarding them.

Libra
24-Sep to 22-Oct

Today brims with romantic potential -- if you're involved, your relationship takes a delightful turn. Singletons can expect that their crush will pick up on their unspoken signals and, even better, reciprocate those feelings. In addition to this love jackpot, you can expect some enticing career prospects to present themselves, too. If some friends feel left out in the cold by your good fortune, woo them back with your genuine affection.

Scorpio
23-Oct to 22-Nov

You're about to embark on an extraordinary opportunity or relationship. Be receptive and open to the influences that are intent on presenting you with experiences that will shape your mind, body and soul if only you are willing to relax your sense of control and deal with what comes your way. There's no need to decide one way or the other what your course of action will be. Instead, watch, wait and listen for your golden chance.

Sagittarius
23-Nov to 21-Dec

When it comes to making sure you perform your best, what really counts is how much time you spend preparing. You have a series of hurdles to clear, but it won't be a problem if you do all the groundwork with diligence and attention. You've also got the ability to ask for help from people who are in a great position to lend you the resources you need, so take advantage of their offers. They want you to succeed, too.
