Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Lights, camera, action! Today chatty Mercury starts a three-week stint in Scorpio and your dramatic fifth house, pushing you out of your shell and into the spotlight. You're not always comfortable being scrutinized, but that doesn't make you any less dynamic to behold. Express your opinions candidly and make sure your name is stamped on all your brilliant ideas. Have you completed work that you're proud of? Wage a social campaign to spread the word. Your confidence could land you a leadership role at work—or maybe the lead singer role in a band. Let your hair down and you'll see.
More, more, more? You’ve got a large and lusty appetite today, Cancer. But with hedonistic Venus and boundary-challenged Neptune squaring off, this is no time to get all Dionysian and overindulgent. Set some clear limits for yourself. You might have to leave an after work event early (willpower, willpower) so you don’t wind up tipping back too many martinis or snogging with the hottie from HR. And when it comes to love, be sure to ask the obvious questions before making your move, like, “Are you seeing anyone?”
If people who need people are the luckiest people in the world, consider yourself blessed today, Cancer. With a harmonious angle between the emo moon and energetic Mars in your communication houses, you won't feel alone for a minute. Reach out to well-heeled friends to make the business introductions you seek, or, if you're in the dating game, ask them to fix you up. All forms of personal expression are supported under this cosmic confab, so make time to work on your screenplay or memoir, or polish your presentation for next week. Don't fixate on your opening line: Warmth and honesty win over clever witticisms.
Hello, sunshine! Your interactions with people will feel bright and promising today. You could meet a romantic prospect who seems to tick all your boxes—or a kindred spirit who may very well have BFF potential. But is it actually a "happily ever after" situation or a sweet, ephemeral attraction? It's not every day that you click with people in this way but only time will tell if the connection is meant to last. Apply a little willpower and let things develop organically. PS: If you find yourself "in a mood" today, the quick fix is to surround yourself with happier people!
Playtime, interrupted. Today's stressful mashup between Mars and Uranus could put an abrupt bookmark in your laid back agenda. You, or the object of your affections, may have to cancel a leisurely plan and race to the office for an urgent assignment. And while you're a capable, can-do colleague, don't let coworkers stick you with their tasks. Picking up their slack will lead to resentment and set the wrong tone. Hold colleagues accountable for handling their part of the workload so you don't have to cancel your evening plans. Having a healthy work-life balance is key to your productivity AND your happiness.
Ready, set, organize! On Saturday, structured Saturn and aesthetic Venus trade tips on how to make your space both functional and beautiful. For example, the addition of a free-standing cabinet could help you pull clutter out of sight—and organizing your existing bookshelves can be an artform unto itself. While you love your sentimental objects, adopt more of a minimalist design scheme. Just as Coco Chanel advised women to remove one accessory before leaving the house, apply that principle to your décor. Group your treasures into collections. Like a couture house, you can put one on display per season. Need a little juice for your love tank? Get ready for a supercharged BLAST on Sunday, as a new moon in Scorpio amps up your fifth house of passion and jumpstarts up an exciting six-month chapter in your love life. If you're ready for a romance renaissance, ask a friend for an introduction or refresh your dating profile. Couples can put the spice back in the relationship by doing something out of your normal routine. Plan an amorous date or revisit an old favorite haunt. And no "housekeeping" talk allowed!
