So many accomplishments in so little time are making you feel quite content — but not complacent. You’re perfectly in control of your own power, which means you can do just about anything you put your heart into; but you aren’t smug about it. You’re generous enough to share the prizes you earn today, and your friends and colleagues will cheer along with you as you rack up even more definitive wins. Yes, everyone’s in clover now, and you’re on the greenest side of the fence.
May 21-June 21
Did you make a mistake or cause a problem somewhere? If so, there’s no sense in hiding. You can’t suppress or evade the truth forever. If this is about you, people will respect you a lot more if you stand up and admit it. That certainly will make today a lot easier to handle. The current energy is complicated enough without bad behaviour on your part! Get back in touch with your sterling character so you can do the right thing.
June 22-July 22
Ritual and habit come easily to you; they’re part of that solid foundation you’ve built for yourself and your family. Security is important to you, after all, Cancer. You’ve got inner strength to spare, and despite your occasional withdrawal from life, you’re a champion at handling whatever comes your way. Good thing, because today could prove a bit of a test. Work demands your attention, as does an important personal relationship. Put effort into both, and be ready to satisfy people’s curiosity. Maybe they just want to know how you make it look so easy.
July 23-August 22
Life doesn’t seem as sweet and sparkly today as it normally does. Maybe things really are more difficult now than usual. Maybe you simply have a cynical, superficial view. Do your trusted friends agree that things were better in the past? Either way, don’t be bitter. Try to learn something instead: There’s a lesson here about being adaptable and working with what you’ve got rather than lamenting about what you think you lost. Soon you’ll be feeling a lot more confident.
August 23-September 22
Managers and directors shine today. If you’re in a leadership position, you’ll find it easy to keep your team focused on the task at hand. You’re certain of what you’re working toward and you know the right way to get there. And if you’re working on your own, so much the better. After all, you’re an old hand at making someone else’s business run smoothly. Now, it’s time to outline and pursue your own goals. You can make great strides now toward your personal version of success.
September 23-October 22
Each moment is like quicksilver. It falls into your hand, runs between your fingers and vanishes without a trace. Don’t waste any more of your precious time brooding over a lost opportunity. There could be even better ones today, and they’ll all go by just as fast if you’re not paying attention. Your forward progress through life is often a series of random events. Even if you can’t plan ahead, at least you can reset your frame of mind to turn them into happy accidents. Adjust your mood and everything’s different.
October 23 – November 22
Stick to it. Don’t give up. You’re obviously one of the more resourceful people you know. All you need now is a little backbone to put behind your solid effort. Yes, events will keep driving you forward. First comes the stick, and then comes the carrot. That’s just how it is this time around, but at least your valiant efforts will be rewarded soon. And don’t sweat the expectations of people who might be confusing you with the superhero they ordered up from central casting. It’s worth remembering that you really can perform on demand.
November 23-December 20
Get things in order around your home or office today. This might mean revising your budget to reflect your current lifestyle and needs. You might clear out your workspace or fine-tune a proposal for your employer. You may simply work carefully and diligently toward a deadline. These suggestions probably makes your skin crawl. Why does the prospect of organising make you restless? You’ve wanted this for ages. Even if you can’t motivate yourself to push forward on a project, don’t change anything yet. At least use today for thinking.
December 21-January 19
Think about what used to make your pulse pound. How much of that still works for you? It’s easy to forget what’s important when temptation waves seductively just beyond your reach. Stay faithful to those old ideals as you chase your latest ambitions. And don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be one or the other. Success isn’t playing favourites as long as you meet the necessary requirements. You can have it all if you play your cards right. Just deal fairly where others are concerned. You’re stuck in this game with them for today, if not longer.
January 20-February 18
You’re naturally attracted toward all things contemporary and untested. Don’t hunt or shop today for new stuff. Instead, your task is to make creative use of whatever you have on hand. You’re so innovative, this should be easy and fun! Devise ways to put tools, coworkers, friends and other resources to use. Collaborate to complete something you’ve been working on for a while. Improvement starts at the ground level. Work your way up toward something full-fledged and incredible.
February 19-March 20
You know what’s good for you, and that puts you ahead of the game. But can you really say what’s best for somebody else? Rethink your urge to force-feed, because that’s where sensitivity ends and tyranny begins. And you certainly don’t have to push yourself out onto that slippery slope. If your reservoir of good will is overflowing, why not dump some of that charity on those who actually want it? And maybe those who actually need what you’re offering will finally put in a formal request. Wait for it and earn their respect.
