Horoscope

Update: 8:12AM Venus moves from Virgo to Libra now, trading in her nurturing spirit and tough work ethic for a long flowing evening gown — she’s ready to mix and mingle. Libra is a favorite realm for Venus; it’s where her natural endowments shine. Use this moment for your own political and social gain. The wheels are greased — all you have to do is steer.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is no benefit to be had in quitting right now. As nerve-racking as the situation may be, your best bet is to see it through to the logical conclusion.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The best time to negotiate responsibilities is when they first come to you. You don’t have to accept everything that is dumped on your desk. Think about the precedent you’re setting.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s important to you to behave in a fair and impartial manner today. You will not respond to people according to how much you like them. Your response will be based on what seems right.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will be aware of the energy exchange that is occurring in each of your interactions. You can practically see feelings. You’ll form a quick notion about what is really going on beneath the surface.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your maturity keeps you from letting short-term frustration get in the way of your long-term benefit. Patience isn’t only a virtue; it’s also a winning tactic. Virgo is on your side.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Each one of the responsibilities that fall to you is a new chance to look and do good for your organization. So when they come to you with a pile of work, you feel excited about the prospects.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You could flatter, bring good news and like everything the boss has to say. But instead, you give your true opinion and speak sincerely about what’s next. That’s why you’ll be promoted.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s said that the harder the battle the sweeter the victory, but that’s not always so. There’s a point at which you realize that the fight is taking much more energy than the victory is really worth.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you’re not happy in your job, your work will suffer and so will you. That’s why the efforts you make toward comfort and joy are not selfish at all — they are necessary!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People change one another just by knowing and interacting with one another. Therefore, no one is the same at the start of a relationship as they are later on, and it would be unreasonable to expect this.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A focused mind is a remarkable thing to achieve, especially on days like today when there are so many distractions. Put positive thoughts toward the day’s challenge. If you think you can, you can.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What you are is not who you are. Neither is what you have. Even your own thoughts cannot define you. Ignore the impositions and definitions. You’re more than all of these things.
