April 20-May 20
Focus on getting along with others today. Normally this isn’t difficult for you, since you’re mellow by nature. But if your stubborn streak rears its head, it’s harder to keep the mood harmonious and relaxed. Avoid this by making a conscious effort to give other people plenty of leeway. If you really need to put your foot down about something, do so as gently as possible, and explain your reasons.
May 21-June 21
Any event on your schedule today that involves other people, from a business meeting to a date, should go well. Your clever mind is at work, making connections and producing snappy responses. Your quick wit is sure to amaze others. They wish they were half as resourceful as you are, not to mention humorous! So don’t worry about making a good impression now. You’re making a great one. Today is your day.
June 22-July 22
A disagreement with your sweetie or someone at work makes you want to run and hide inside your famous shell. But if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll realise you’re responsible for at least half the blame in this situation. You had good reasons and intentions, Cancer — you always do. But now is the time to apologise and reopen the floor for discussion. After all, you truly want everyone to get along.
July 23-August 22
Being creative brings you a lot of pleasure today. Even just cooking a new dish for dinner is a fun activity, because it awakens your senses — and of course, it’s even better if you can share the experience with someone you care about. Artistic projects let you express parts of yourself that you might normally ignore. Pursue anything that uses your imagination today, Leo. You’ll be better for it.
August 23-September 22
You aren’t normally a sentimental type, but today, beauty has a softening effect on you. A gorgeous sunset seems to reach right into your soul, and a piece of artwork is unusually appealing. The company of your friends is especially peaceful, too. If a disagreement arises, your best bet is to stay calm and logical, and focus on compromise. That way, you can return to the pleasant vibe as quickly as possible.
September 23-October 22
Today, it’s even more important than usual for you to get along with others. Just don’t fail to stand up for yourself when you need to hold your ground. Conflict and disagreement are a necessary part of life, you know. You, of all people, know how to say your piece in a gracious, inclusive way. Employ that skill today. It will be the start of a new, stronger you.
October 23 – November 22
You’re in a cooperative frame of mind. There’s no hidden agenda here — you simply want to get along with the people in your day-to-day life, because it’s so much more pleasant that way. People may be surprised to find you so agreeable, since you’re often pushing for what you want, whether in a subtle or overt way. But now, you’re willing to give some ground in order to achieve harmony.
November 23-December 20
Partnership is all about making compromises, and today could be a lesson in that reality. But you’re in a fine mood, and it’s easy for you to give ground, because you aren’t worried about losing anything. You genuinely want everyone in your life to get along, and you hold that goal as a high priority. You don’t worry about conceding on smaller issues. This is exactly what good friends do.
December 21-January 19
You might feel a little lonely today. Your instinct is often to bury yourself in work — nothing like a long task list to distract yourself! But a much better fix is to reach out to someone. Call a friend and ask them to dinner. Hug your sweetheart or your child. If it’s human companionship that you’re missing, nothing beats spending some relaxed quality time with your fellow humans.
January 20-February 18
You get a lot of pleasure today out of spending time with other people. Often you prefer to work on your own, so you can channel a direct stream of creativity. But now, you’re listening to others’ conversations and ideas, and you’re realising they can be quite stimulating. Maybe you can think up a team project, or recruit a couple of people to help you with something you’re already working on. Try it, Aquarius!
February 19-March 20
You find it hard to say no today, because you want to please everyone. It’s natural to wish you could be all things to all people, but that isn’t possible. Weigh the pros and cons when someone asks something of you. If it’s in your best interest to do it, then all is well. But if you realise you can’t or don’t want to, be honest. You aren’t required to go above and beyond.
