General Horoscope for February 22, 2019
We want to put our feet back down on solid ground today. It was fun to meander through our fantasies and imagine the possibilities, but the earthy Taurus Moon reminds us to get back to work in the real world. However, we could overdo our desire to make tangible progress while the Moon opposes giant Jupiter. But just when we think we might be getting somewhere, the Moon shifts into whimsical Gemini at 7:07 pm EST, spinning us in multiple directions.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
You know what's important to you and you're unwilling to compromise your beliefs for the sake of expediency. In fact, your ego can interfere with your progress today if you think you have a better way to approach a particular job that is different from everyone else's. Rather than considering how you could moderate your plan to work with others, you expect them to adapt to your standards now. Unfortunately, this stubborn stance doesn't bode well for smooth interactions with your workmates. Stretching your limits is the only way to become more flexible.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
Sharing your plans with your friends may be your sneaky way to ask for help without revealing any insecurity about your decisions. You just want a simple nod of approval so you know you're on the right track now. You hope your ideas are so enticing that your best allies will offer to jump in with their expertise. However, your expectations might be over the top because people are already too busy to take on more work. Additionally, you could receive some unexpected feedback in the form of constructive criticism today. If you're not willing to listen to what others have to say, then don't ask in the first place.
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
You can only hold onto a specific position so long today because your perspective changes as you gather more facts. Since you're driven to do your best at work, you don't really care if your original conclusions are ultimately the final ones. You're happy to incorporate new information into your developing game plan because your adaptability is one of your greatest strengths. Just don't embrace every single entertaining idea or you'll be rebuilding your foundation so often that you won't be able to take the next step. Creating a solid base now is crucial to your success later on.
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
Your optimism fuels your determination today as you look to your future. You truly believe you can't help but succeed at whatever you decide to do, making your current choices extremely important. However, you're not interested in heading off on your own now; you prefer to be an integral part of a team. You gain security from working on a cause with others, but you also know that you'll accomplish more if several people are pulling in the same direction. An African proverb teaches, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
You have an agenda at work and you expect everyone to either help you or get out of your way. You will not take kindly to anyone who resists your efforts today. Fortunately, unexpected assistance arrives when a powerful person jumps on your bandwagon and inspires others to do the same. Graciously accept any support that is offered now because it may disappear as quickly as it arrived. Although you might feel abandoned at first if someone shifts their loyalty, it won't matter in the long run. Don't let your focus drift for any reason at all until you reach your goal.
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
You are quite practical as you make plans for your next vacation, even if it's the biggest adventure you've ever taken. Your ideas might sound overly ambitious to others today, but they don't understand how committed you are to transforming your fantasy into reality. Your vision is wide now, but extremely focused. Nevertheless, there are hurdles to overcome, logistics to wrangle and a budget to manage. Your journey seems daunting at first, but if you take it step by step, manifesting your dream is a delicious piece of cake.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Your attention turns to the details of a complicated business partnership today. You have high hopes that an agreement can be reached, even when dealing with financial or technical issues. At first, neither side wants to give an inch on anything. This is the stage where each person declares their contradicting position to be the only position. Nevertheless, movement is likely now; breakthroughs will produce exhilaration all the way around. Genuine compromise is possible on several fronts if everyone can remember that it takes a village to create positive change.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
It's tempting to put the blame on someone else today, especially if you are working out the logistics in a close relationship. You believe that you're openminded and willing to alter your perspective when offered a good reason. However, you also think it's necessary for both parties to give and take. Unfortunately, the other person appears to be uninterested in listening to your opinions. Nothing is as it seems now; in fact, you might be the overly emotional one, projecting your rigidity onto someone else. You can't change anyone else's mind; just do the best with your own.
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
You are so reliable at work that it seems as if everyone is leaning on you to help them finish their chores. But you are less expressive today, keeping your concerns about your hectic schedule to yourself. Nevertheless, you might finally react if you feel pushed to the edge. Although you could unexpectedly lose your temper, an emotional outbreak is mentally draining. Deliver on your promises and complete your work on time. Being true to your word is more important now than being true to your feelings.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
There's no need to be overly showy today when it comes to expressing your emotions or demonstrating your admiration to someone you love. In fact, you're more likely to convey your true feelings through persistent behavior rather than dramatic gestures of magnanimity. The truth is any single act by itself says very little compared to your habitual performance over time. Wear your loyalty like a badge of honor. Bruce Lee said, "Long-term consistency trumps short-term intensity."
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
You don't need to wave any flags or commit any courageous acts in order to be a responsible member of your family or workgroup. In fact, it's the simplest things that say the most now, since others won't be impressed by fast talking and radical behavior. Your idealistic intentions carry little weight today, but it's your determination to deliver the goods that ensures your legacy. Colin Powell said, "Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty and persistence."
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
Your word is as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar today. Although your actions might appear confusing to others at first, they may be judging you against a past performance when their unrealistic expectations set you up for failure. But you are quick to learn from your previous mistakes, and your promises are more restrained now. First Lady Rosalynn Carter said, "You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through."
