Free Daily Horoscope - September 17 2016
● General: Want to earn good points with the universe today? Then try something new -- something that usually intimidates the heck out of you! Life has been a little bit too drama-free for you lately and you need a challenge to get your blood pumping again. Your ambitions have not been very ambitious, and it's time you got a bit bolder and braver. So sign up for those skydiving classes. Audition for a play. Request a meeting with the big boss. Do whatever it takes to push yourself.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: If your reputation is more important to you than the actual work, then you're placing your carts before your horses. Stay grounded and don't let your drive for success muddle your thinking. You can do this.
● Finances: Someone else's impatience and agitation make you nervous, but that's not a good reason to sign on the dotted line. They'll be long gone once the ink dries but you'll be stuck with your decision for a long time to come. You have enough karma in the bank to protect yourself from their frustration. Find a way to use it.
● Love: Romance is coming soon enough. Rushing into that date or making that call could spell disaster, however. Take some time today to explore your individuality and your connection with others. Seek equally detached and like-minded folks for a new perspective.
● General: A lot of details are still up in the air in your life right now, which means that, like it or not, some of your travel plans might have to be put on hold for a while. But the good news is that all of this uncertainty around you will only continue for a few more days at the very most. And if you can increase the level of physical activity in your life, you will make it all go away even sooner. If you want to go on a journey, get more active -- as soon as you can!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: If you have plans for tonight, make sure everyone knows they're firm. The last thing you need to do is spend even more hours at the office. And if your boss thinks otherwise, enlighten them while you have the chance.
● Finances: If you no longer have the Midas touch, at least you haven't been given donkey's ears just yet. It's not the time to worry about such a form of punishment, and in fact, punishment does not play a part in your finances. Actually, there is almost nothing personal about your situation at all, if that's any comfort to you.
● Love: You're feeling a little superstitious today -- no worries. Go with it and listen to your gut. Your intellectual toolbox is filled with clever ideas and quick fixes. You're a mental MacGyver and that's everyone wants to be around you. Say the word and you'll make sure it's handled.
● General: Feed yourself well today, in every sense of the word. Healthwise, you need to make sure you have an actual breakfast, not just a cup of coffee and a muffin. You're going to need all the fuel you can get to stay smiling all day long. And don't forget to feed your mind! Pick up a book or magazine that teaches you something you never knew before. You might not aspire to be an intellectual, but you do want to know more about what's going on around you in the world, right?
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Someone who you consider your partner is trying to boss you around. Or are you just being overly sensitive? Tap into the undercurrents to find out if it's time to put your foot down.
● Finances: Don't worry so much about your reputation. Others aren't seeing you any differently than they once did, if only because they're not paying any attention. They're too focused on their own careers to even notice you right now and that's exactly they way you like it. That leaves you plenty of time to get creative, out of the spotlight.
● Love: Overwrought messages might work against you today -- stick with the basics. If you've developed a more-than-friends relationship with someone, think about taking it to the next level. As long as you express your feelings, you've accomplished your mission.
● General: Do you have a goal that's intimidating you? Forcing you to procrastinate and procrastinate? Well, today, you need to either start on it or give it up. You have learned to be flexible and go back and forth on various projects, but you can't go back and forth on this one. If you are too afraid to get started, then you shouldn't even bother tackling a tough project. But if you want something badly, you need to find the resolve deep in your heart to get it. You can do this!
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Don't worry, your chance to balance things out will come with time. For today, you need to deal with something extreme. It takes a lot of work to make things right, and you shouldn't stop until they're done.
● Finances: When did life become one big unknown? Was it this time last year, or earlier or later? You suddenly need to know the definitive moment when everything changed. Don't waste too much good energy on something that belongs in tomorrow's history books. It's only glorified daydreaming.
● Love: You can't know how far you've gone until you go too far. That's just how it is for you right now. Luckily, you're able to adapt on the fly. A romantic situation is warming up in the zodiac and it'll come when you least expect it -- so expect anything.
● General: If a contract or any other type of legal document comes across your desk today, do not sign on the dotted line until you have explored every possible downfall. Signing it too hastily could mean that you are committing yourself to something that you will want to back out of later on. There's not necessarily anything wrong with this particular deal, but it might just not be the deal you need now. So be patient. And be ready to turn it down if it's not everything you want.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You're not lacking in motivation. In fact, you have a strong sense of what you want, as you always do. Let the pull of your future plans get you through the work on your desk.
● Finances: Everyone you have to do business with today is giving you strong signals to keep one hand on your wallet. Is your intuition telling you something or are you simply feeling paranoid? Don't ante up as long as it remains unclear. Play it safe instead.
● Love: Make sure the feelings are mutual before you run out and buy this person a wedding ring. True love? More like true lust. The stars call for a little extra legwork, but don't worry, you'll reap the right kind of rewards -- or at the very least, save a little face.
● General: Friendships come in all different styles, philosophies, and power dynamics. This diversity keeps things in your life interesting -- if a bit tumultuous from time to time. Today you might have trouble understanding a friend who is very different from you, and things could escalate to hurt feelings if you aren't careful about how to talk about your differences. You have to offer constructive criticism instead of being just plain critical about what they say. Show respect.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: If you're single, you could meet someone through work, but you're much more likely to meet someone after hours. The only way to do that is to finish up before the whistle blows. Stick to what's on your desk.
● Finances: Not a lot will be accomplished if you leave everyone to their own devices. You need to be setting the pace, not wondering what the pace will be. Don't worry that it will be set in stone, either. Everything is changeable, even once you get the ball rolling.
● Love: You're compelled to try something totally out of character: Reach out for help. Today presents a great opportunity to unload a secret that's bothered you for years. Share it with a trusted soul. Even if you never confront the person in question, at least you've aired it out.
● General: Give your slumbering willpower a poke and try to wake it up today! There are way too many opportunities right in front of you for you to not be paying attention. And if you don't reach out and grab one of them immediately, they will just keep passing you by -- and you will keep wondering why you're not moving forward. You can have fun chasing a goal, you know -- it's not all frustration. This is a good day to start something new. Set some tougher goals for yourself.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Being at work may be difficult but thinking about home isn't much comfort. Place some limits on how much you'll allow old issues to infiltrate either space. Then buckle down and get back to work.
● Finances: Having a lot on your plate is the normal state of affairs. But even you can tip the scales if you don't watch out. Be sure to keep your head down and your nose to the grindstone. Until you polish off what's already before you, don't even daydream about taking on another project.
● Love: Your neediness might scare a certain someone off and mixed messages could work against you, so don't approach this person just yet. Once you untie the emotional havoc, you'll have more energy for romantic pursuits. Until then, keep to yourself.
● General: Lately, your healthy ambition has been feeling a bit under the weather -- and this situation must be addressed today. All you need to do is give yourself a small goal to meet before the end of the day. And once you show yourself that you are capable of getting things done, you will awaken that sense of aggressive ambition that is lying dormant inside of you right now. Pick one thing to do -- meet that new cutie, get someone's number, or just get in an hour at the gym.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Don't count on your boss being in a good mood to get you out of this jam. Whether you've overscheduled or communicated badly, you need to deal with this head on. Come up with a plan.
● Finances: Like a bad play, all the characters involved in a certain financial situation are making their way front and center. That happens to be exactly where you are. There's no avoiding this one unless making yourself invisible is one of your hidden talents. Since it's really your only out, it's worth a try.
● Love: If you let the inner turmoil spill out, you won't like the consequences. You're in a great place right now, even though you can't appreciate it. Work out the angst a bit. You're no good to anyone until you toss this emotional garbage in the trash.
● General: Appreciate the shades of gray that are all around you today. Life is not black and white, people are not good or bad, beliefs are not wrong or right. It can be tricky to live in that middle ground where you see every side of things and respect everyone equally -- but it is very rewarding. Because when you see everyone's perspectives, you can connect with them on a much more profound level. Don't judge anyone -- accept everyone today, even the people you don't agree with.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Don't waste time feeling overwhelmed. There is nothing like checking things off the list to inspire you to further action. Go for one task after another in a direct, linear manner until you're done.
● Finances: You're having trouble getting revved up to face your day. But does every day really have to be exciting? The challenges of just getting by should be enough to sustain you, at least for twenty-four hours. Instead of expanding your horizons, you should try to shrink them. Think locally, act locally.
● Love: Everything seems unmanageable as a self-destructive streak seeps into your life. Too much is at stake to rely on hints. Be direct: Ask for what you want and need. Don't be afraid to face reality -- it's not as scary as you think.
● General: Are you feeling a bit bored right now? Nothing is going to change until you make it change, so the ball is in your court. Making a change in your usual routine is a lot more easily said than done, but if you just try to mix things up today in little ways you can make a lot more headway than you think. Try a new coffee drink this morning. Wear a pair of shoes you haven't worn in a while. Take a different route to work. Adjusting your perspective doesn't always require major tectonic shifts.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: The past few days have been hard. You don't need a huge accomplishment to top it off. If you came in early and did enough, then you can consider it a good day. Enjoy your evening without thinking about work.
● Finances: Others may not be impressed, but you are thrilled with your own performance, and you're only too glad to help them see exactly why you're such a success. You'll have them feeling good about you in no time. That's more than half your battle, so put plenty of energy into it.
● Love: Transformation is exciting and full of possibilities, so roll out the red carpet when the opportunities park at your front door. Rap with the stellar crowd. The old standbys will understand your need to branch out and you'll make an awesome connection.
● General: You have only just scratched the surface on a new goal, so don't think for a moment that you can take a break right now. There is much more work to be done, and you need to keep working at it today! By pushing forward harder, you'll make amazing progress -- and the feeling of accomplishment will give you the high energy you need to keep going even further. All of this positive energy will feed new ideas and encourage things to keep going in the right direction.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Don't waste time hacking away at the pile on your desk. Be methodical about it. Discipline yourself today so you don't have to worry about it tomorrow.
● Finances: Be very careful when going over your finances. You'll miss something the first time, and it could have dire consequences. Figuring out your bank statements is more of an art than a science today, with a balance that moves easily between reality and downright fantasy. Try to get a good grip on it.
● Love: Yes, yes -- you're sick of this particular situation already. But deal with it already. Search your soul for answers and put that energy in motion. You'd rather just blow it off, but you know if you do, you'll regret your decision later on.
● General: There is no reason to doubt what people are saying today -- even if it does sound too good to be true! You've got to start getting used to getting what you want, and you need to start today. Do not doubt that when you need them, your people will be right behind you, waiting for instructions. You can't doubt it, because if you do, you might create a self-fulfilling prophecy. So just relax and accept the fact that today is going to be an easy, enjoyable day.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Face it, if you want to finish up what's on your desk, you'll have to swallow your pride and ask for assistance. It may not be easy, but if it's any comfort to you, they're more than glad to help.
● Finances: Treating yourself well doesn't take a lot of money. You can make yourself feel like a million bucks without spending a penny. If this is a new idea to you, then take it out for a spin. You'll come back transformed in more ways than one. The difference is noticeable.
● Love: Lots of elbow grease will yield surprising results. You're relentless today in your pursuits, especially when it comes to relationships. Assess the situation and read the nuances before you approach. Or maybe it's time to reorganize your romantic goals.
