April 20-May 20
Someone’s display of individuality may threaten you today, on an emotional level. Innovative ideas and unexpected acts make you nervous now. Maybe you’re afraid your child’s or friend’s independence will pull them away from you. That’s an understandable fear, but an unfounded one. Everyone is an individual, after all. And growth and positive change depend on testing new methods and ideas. Give people a chance to express their true uniqueness.
May 21-June 21
A bohemian lifestyle appeals to you today. Spend time with your most artistic, creative and freethinking friends. These are the people who will stimulate your mind the most. And mental stimulation is a must right now. Working your way through an interesting puzzle feels as good as a hard workout. And coming up with an innovative solution to an old problem makes you feel like the genius that you are.
June 22-July 22
Your connections with other people may feel a bit awkward today. Perhaps you’re looking for warmth, but all you’re getting is a chilly reception. If so, don’t take it personally. People are in taking-care-of-business mode. If they seem detached, it’s only because their minds are someplace else. In truth, you’re probably preoccupied with your own projects and causes. Life will warm up soon, don’t worry.
July 23-August 22
You may get stuck today in a push-pull between wanting closeness with others and wanting them to recognise your uniqueness. Being an individual is lonely sometimes, isn’t it? But right now, running along with the pack doesn’t feel right, either. You may have to resign yourself to feeling a little isolated as you take a stand on some issue that’s important to you, or pursue a project that’s close to your heart.
August 23-September 22
Has the world gone just a wee bit crazy today? Well, no — but people certainly are saying and doing some unusual things. And that just tests your sense of what’s right and proper! But maybe there’s a method to everyone’s madness. After all, forward movement in any area of life tends to come from revolutionary thinking and groundbreaking acts. And wouldn’t you like to be in on a movement like that?
September 23-October 22
You’re a people-person by nature. Many times, that means attending parties, gallery openings and other events. You have a lot of fun being social. But today, be social with a purpose. Do some networking, especially if you’re trying to get others involved in a cause that’s near and dear to your heart. You can really communicate how much this issue means to you, and all your creative ideas for tackling it.
October 23 – November 22
If an opportunity comes today to work with other people rather than alone, take it. You may feel resistant to going with the crowd. You have your own ideas, after all. Maybe you’re afraid of giving all your secrets away. And if others won’t follow your lead, you’re perfectly willing to go it alone. Except team efforts are favoured now. Go ahead and disclose your genius ideas. Do it for the good of the group.
November 23-December 20
Your inner reformer comes out to play today. Even if you’re working hard on something, it’s still entertaining. You’re just having so much fun! Using your mind in complicated and interesting ways is the best kind of mental workout. You love challenging yourself in this way. If you’re stuck for ideas, brainstorm with friends or coworkers. The only criteria now is that you entertain the uncommon, the unconventional and the unfamiliar.
December 21-January 19
An especially sharp mind joins forces today with your usual commitment to hard work. As you tackle projects and problems, don’t shy away from untested ideas. An experimental approach could work out much better than a traditional one. And you’re practical enough to know that ‘tried and true’ isn’t always the highest recommendation. On days like this one, it’s more important to seek out what works, even if it’s an unusual method.
January 20-February 18
Claiming your independence is a priority today. You’ll shy away from anything or anyone who would limit your self-expression or individuality. Of course, this could cause problems with your employer or your sweetheart — you know, those people who are invested in having you as a member of their team! If so, recognise that they just like you and want to keep you around. And that’s a good thing, right?
February 19-March 20
Your friendships and other interpersonal connections take centre stage today. People may not seem quite as warm as you’d prefer, but don’t take that to heart. They’re probably just wrapped up in their own pursuits. That’s the kind of energy that’s swirling around today. Many people are so preoccupied, they simply forget to connect in their usual, warm manner. Perhaps that’s a contribution you can make: gentle kindness on a busy day.
