Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Infatuation often leads to glorification, and that can impede the natural evolution of a relationship. If the love bug bites today, practice a little restraint. Too much too soon can be a turnoff, Aries, or the recipe for a crash and burn. Instead of worrying about whether you’ll have a future together, stay in the moment and enjoy the process of getting to know each other. Putting the cart before the horse could lead to wasted energy and disappointment, not to mention one unhappy filly. See the full week >

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

Don’t worry about keeping things strictly business at work today, Taurus. We’re not saying you should put the moves on a colleague or act inappropriately. However, you could go beyond small talk, asking coworkers about their extracurricular interests or their families. If you’re meeting prospective clients, break the ice with casual conversation before diving in with a sales pitch. Be sure to reveal a little more about yourself, which can build the trust factor.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Contrary to that old chestnut about sticks and stones, Gemini, words CAN actually hurt. Today’s sharp moon-Mercury opposition could put some bite into your communications, so think before you speak. There’s nothing wrong with telling the truth; just aim for compassionate candor instead of brutal honesty. If your emotions are a little raw, save the honesty for another time, when you know your sentiments won’t pierce like daggers. Trying to hash things out today could put an important relationship at risk. See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Today’s moon-Mercury opposition could find you preoccupied with practical matters. Maybe there’s a stressful expense looming, or you’re feeling the pinch of a high-pressure work project. Obsessing over it won’t get you anywhere, so shift out of the thought loop and take action. If you’re not sure what to DO, begin by asking questions. Your investigations will lead you to the right place eventually. Remember, you don’t have to figure this out all by yourself! See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Stubbornness has been plaguing a close relationship lately, with both sides digging in their heels. Ready to compromise yet? Your emotions have finally settled a little below the boiling point, making it easier to find middle ground. Today’s moon-Mercury face-off eases the tension, helping you engage in productive dialogue. The key to reaching a solution is listening. Step off your soapbox and really tune in to the other person’s perspective. You might realize that you misunderstood their message the first time around. Do-over! See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Don’t be too quick to leap into action today, Virgo. The stars encourage you to ramp up your creativity and think outside the box when trying to shape your ideas into a plan. Loosen up and ALLOW even the most out-there notions into the mix. Focus on one element of your mission and do a bit more digging. Check out what the competition is doing and Google other options. Your research could generate an aha moment that can shoot your project into the stratosphere! See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

The stakes are high, and you’re intent on bringing your A-game today. Just don’t let the pressure get the best of you. While a slick presentation is necessary, so is showing them the best parts of your personality. Instead of putting on a performance, be yourself, Libra. Relax and let your confidence and warmth shine through. Combine your professionalism and your personable nature, and you’ll have them at hello. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Bonding with coworkers might facilitate better working relationships, but today it’s best to stick to a “strictly business” approach. Other people’s personal dramas and emotions could threaten to derail the tasks at hand, so don’t indulge them. Instead, keep the Scorpio Squad focused on tackling the deliverables that are expected from you by the end of day. If motivation is flagging, deliver one of your famous pep talks and get them pumped about the big-picture goal again. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Don’t even try to sweep that fuchsia elephant under the rug, Sagittarius. Owning up to mistakes will win people’s respect, while avoidance only makes things worse. Sure, you could have done things better—or differently. Instead of beating yourself up over a misstep, recognize the humor in your own actions AND the entire situation. It will make it easier to atone for your blunder while modeling what it means to be forgiving. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Don’t take the bait, Capricorn! Today’s moon-Mercury opposition could pull you toward temptation, but your job is to stay strong in the face of forbidden fruit. Whether it’s “just one more bite” or flirting with someone who’s no good for you, your willpower will be on the weak side. Don’t succumb to the ephemeral rush of instant gratification (which you’ll only end up regretting). Pause, breathe, then make a healthier choice. This small, subtle shift could bring benefits for years to come. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Are you operating on assumptions, or do you actually have the facts? It might be hard to tell under today’s moon-Mercury face-off. One thing you DON’T want to do is leap into any sort of action until you’ve verified all data. You could wind up with egg on your face if you rush ahead—especially if you inadvertently wind up spreading false information in the process. If you’re working with a team, make sure that the key players are set up to win. Pause from “doer” mode and train them on the basics. Then make sure you’re all aligned around vision and values.

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Logic and emotions CAN coexist, Pisces, but today, they might be in a tug of war. The best way to balance this push-pull is to first get in touch with your true feelings, then see which ones you can actually back up with facts. If you’re struggling to find consensus, an independent third party might help, especially if your emotions threaten to obscure the situation. Need to vent? Make sure you’re only doing so with someone who can lead you down the path of productive problem-solving. If you don’t get stuck in the morass of it all, you’ll drum up some creative solutions.
