Our future success is dependent on our willingness to prepare now for what’s ahead.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
You bounce back pretty quickly from whatever setbacks you encounter today, especially if you overshot your target yesterday. Typically, you’re not one to nurse your wounds for long when there is important work to do in the present moment. Confronting your temporary sense of defeat can act as a wake-up call that reminds you to solidify your boundaries, redefine your mission and get busy progressing toward your goals. Instead of waiting for the next opportunity to come along, create it.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
While others may sit around and complain about all the work there is to do today, you’re keen on jumping in and getting started. You have a mission in mind and anticipate overcoming all odds on your way to success. But you’re not only focused on reaching your destination now, because you intuitively know that every step of your journey is an integral part of the experience. Thankfully, your pragmatic approach to life improves your chances of manifesting your dreams. Helen Keller said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
Questioning authority comes naturally to you, but there are times when it’s smarter to obey the rules, even if you don’t agree with them. Rather than confronting someone who is thwarting your efforts today, you’ll be more successful if you just get on with business as usual. Don’t waste time with anyone who is distracting you with their negativity. A clash of egos is a losing proposition for everyone involved. Henry Ford said, “If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
Conforming your emotions to match someone else’s expectations is like pounding a round peg into a square hole. Your intentions may be good, but nothing you do makes for a smooth fit. Although you cherish the notion of pleasing someone you love or respect, it’s healthier in the long run to be true to your own heart. You must confront your own fear of rejection before you can speak your truth. Psychologist Brené Brown wrote, “Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.”
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
You may have a long list of things you want to accomplish today, along with a concrete plan of attack to reach your goals. Unfortunately, everything seems to take longer in reality than it does in your imagination. Logistics can be your undoing now if you’re not flexible enough to consider changing circumstances with every step you take. Worry less about the quantity of your tangible results than the quality. Historian Will Durant wrote, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Although you have your work cut out for you today, your current confidence combined with your innate efficiency enables you to come out ahead of the game. But you’re aware that there’s not much time to relax because it could take all day to complete your chores, especially to your high standards. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to pace yourself and take short breaks when you can. Maintaining your top level of performance is only possible if you periodically stop to replenish your energy along the way. Paying attention to your physical body is not a luxury, it’s a requirement.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Domestic responsibilities may prevent you from participating in a social outing with your friends today. You might be bummed at first because you have to turn down an intriguing invitation, but you’re pragmatic enough to understand the situation and quickly process your disappointment. In fact, you adapt so well that you might actually look forward to spending more time with your family or taking care of unfinished personal business. Goethe wrote, “He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.”
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
By the time you open your mouth to speak today, you know exactly what you’re going to say. Unfortunately, someone may dismiss your point of view before you finish sharing it. Or, worse yet, you could be told outright to keep your thoughts to yourself. In either case, your disbelief quickly turns to outrage. Nevertheless, delaying confrontation is a smart idea when you feel as if you’re backed against the wall. Heed the advice of former First Lady Michelle Obama who said, “When they go low, we go high.”
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
You might discover that you have less cash available than you thought, forcing you to reconsider your plans or postpone a purchase today. Needless to say, you’re not happy when the cosmic bank hands you a reality check. However, it’s not only that you’re feeling restrained by circumstances, you’re also annoyed at yourself for your role in creating the current situation. Instead of wasting psychic energy beating yourself up now, direct your attention to stabilizing your finances. Ultimately, gaining mastery over your money will go a long way toward relieving the stress in your life.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
You’re not sure why reality has to return with such a thud today. Nevertheless, you realize that your great idea might not be as awesome as you initially thought. But once you get over your first wave of disappointment, you’re ready to consider how to best improve your plan to reach your personal or professional goals. As you reassess your current position, your resources and your ambitions, create a failsafe strategy that moves you closer to your objectives. Irish novelist Oliver Goldsmith wrote, “Success consists of getting up just one more time than you fall.”
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Sometimes you believe you can get from point A to point B instantaneously. Of course, this may be true in the intellectual realms, but not in the three-dimensional world. Your current strategy to circumvent real obstacles might be to stay within the safety of your imagination. But, unlike dreams, life on Earth consists of sequential causes and effects. At this point in your evolution, you still must work within the confines of time and space. Letting go of your idealistic fantasies is the first step to achieving lasting satisfaction.
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
Your personal relationships sustain your spirit, and you’re happy to spend time with those you love. But you may feel as if others are taking advantage of your loyalty today by making unrealistic demands on your time. Naturally, your first inclination is to do whatever is necessary. However, your enthusiasm cools if you notice an energetic imbalance. This can be tricky territory because pulling back without any explanation only increases the discomfort. Thankfully, being honest about your feelings might be enough of a catalyst to reset the emotional equilibrium.
