Free Daily Horoscope - January 19 2017
● General: Do not jump and run at the sound of someone else's alarm today -- your sense of urgency is different from the next guy's. Base your actions on what you think is most important, not on what you think other people think is most important! It's not about being selfish; it's about not letting the agendas of others influence your life. Now more than ever, you need to maintain a sense that you are in full control of your life.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Don't hesitate to use all the power at your disposal. Your energy will make it easy to move forward on new initiatives and push back against unfair or shortsighted policies from above.
● Finances: Making money, losing money -- it's all become so routine. Not. You are on the edge of your seat once again today. If it weren't for your love of the sugar rush, you would have gotten a stable job long ago. Keep focusing on what is sweet.
● Love: You have your perfect type defined right down to their toenail. But, does your specificity mean you're missing out on someone a little left of perfection? Broaden your search just a bit. You'll meet lots of new and interesting prospects.
● General: Your ability to accept differing opinions and ideas is strong, but it could be stronger. Luckily, there will be no shortage of opposing viewpoints around you today -- listen to them and be tolerant. Don't debate ideas. Rather, pay attention to what other people are saying, and then figure out whether you are in the majority or in the minority. Where you fit will dictate how much power you have to make changes in your work or school environment.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: By the end of the day, you will see that your interlocking network of attachments is a primary source of strength and energy for you, even if you feel burdened, even sickened by it early in the day.
● Finances: For once it seems like fortune is courting you. In fact, it almost feels as if it's stalking you. You've having a classic 'be careful what you wish for' kind of day. The very specter of success has you running for cover.
● Love: Take some time today to explore your individuality and your connection with others. Do you have a tendency to lose yourself in relationships? If so, work on finding the balance.
● General: Pluck the nuttiest idea out of the back corner of your mind, knock the dust and cobwebs off of it, and mull it over today. Chances are, if you turn it over in your mind enough times, you will see a new possibility you've never noticed before. As soon as you do, you can put this idea into action! Don't wait for someone to give you permission to move forward. When you're hot, you're hot, and today your mind will be more active than an electrical storm!
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Your team is all on the same page -- which could be a first. Take advantage of this new situation by ensuring that everyone recognizes their shared goals and is willing to compromise to meet them.
● Finances: The last thing you need when trying to go over your bills is a bunch of harpies and busybodies hovering around. Someone is ready to pounce on you at the first sign of weakness, so keep all financial information to yourself.
● Love: That center-of-attention monger's ruining your gig. You're dying to talk to that office cutie, but they're hogging the territory. Use your guile to lure them away from the target. Once you've derailed their efforts, go for the kill.
● General: Today you will see how successful many of the people in your life are. Unfortunately, this might awaken the green-eyed monster lurking deep inside of you. Their new homes, fancy cars and designer wardrobes are all things you could have -- but are those things really going to make you happy? Don't focus on material goods now. Instead, work toward fulfilling goals in your life.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: When it comes to money matters, the stars are like the wind at your back. Security shouldn't be a big issue for you -- it's a great time to shop around for loans and other financial arrangements. You should be able to nail down a favorable interest rate and terms.
● Finances: You know to plan for success, not failure, but don't plan to clean up. Success today means not losing money and nothing more. That's okay with you, though. You can focus on smaller issues and make the big bucks another day.
● Love: A new energy coming into your life could change the romantic landscape of your day. Give a potentially amorous situation time to bloom. Don't stifle it with too much talk; instead, let it air out. The results will surprise you.
● General: Your confidence is an important tool in life, and today it's vital for you to appreciate the value you bring to the world. Cherish who you are, because there is no one else on earth who has your unique blend of sophistication, intelligence and compassion! If you don't start patting yourself on the back more, you could become easy prey for people who like to manipulate or con others into doing the work that they should be doing.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You can turn your attention to the future in a little while, and you deserve a rest. You've reached a peak, but there's more to come. Enjoy the view and the perks that come with success for now.
● Finances: If you seem withdrawn it's only because you are mulling over your options. Something has to change but you're not sure yet how to go about it. Continue looking inward until you are sure you've hit on the right plan.
● Love: An undeniable magnetism attracts people to you like crazy today. They want to soak in your dazzling energy. Don't be afraid to share your gift, especially around the presence of a certain someone. They'll definitely take notice.
● General: You have every right to brag to friends about your latest accomplishments, but you really shouldn't -- at least not today. Too many of your friends with fragile egos might react negatively. It's not that they won't be happy for you -- they will -- it's just that your exuberance might remind them too much of their lack of good fortune. Be sensitive to this, and choose to share your pride with family members instead. They'll love to hear you pat yourself on the back!
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Perhaps a new idea or plan seems impossible at first. Most likely, however, it'll work with a little adjustment. Your first instinct is to reject everything new that comes your way, but give it a second, lingering thought.
● Finances: You aren't just looking back on today's achievements, you're tallying your entire week. The end result will determine more than just whether or not you have a great day. It will make or break your plans for the near future.
● Love: Today, you're less concerned with how you come across than the contents of your message. As long as you convey your feelings, you've accomplished your mission. If the other person rejects your behavior, they're not right for you anyway.
● General: Sure, a lot of the small details of an upcoming event are still up in the air, but the stars say that those details won't really matter in the end. Everything will work out well, so your job is done here! Let go of all that planning and organizing, and move on to more enjoyable tasks or projects. You have a new person in your life: it's a great day to spend some time with him or her. You share many things, not the least of which is a curiosity about each other.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: If you plan your next few moves right now, you're sure to be golden in the not-too-distant future. You're tuned into the big picture and can see a little farther ahead than the competition.
● Finances: You're normally a good listener but today your best bet is to block things out and plug your ears. Even the voice in your head could lead you astray. And without any input, it's a good day to do nothing at all rather than risk doing the wrong thing with your money.
● Love: You're a great storyteller, so let your talent shine today. Share your tales with some pals or coworkers during the afternoon doldrums. Your take on situations is hilarious, and you'll have everyone rolling on the ground.
● General: Today you will definitely have the energy and strength to go the distance. So don't shy away from any type of challenge, no matter how out of your element you may feel or how high the stakes may be. It's time to just go for it. This is a form of self-education and a wonderful way to show people what a good sport you are. You don't need to prove anything to anyone, so just roll with it and see what happens.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: It's simply someone else's time to shine, so don't be offended if you're asked to sit out the latest round of show and tell. It doesn't mean you're down and out -- just that you can work better in the background for now.
● Finances: A friend who is floundering could use your help, in a roundabout way. You know the secret to success even if it's apparent. You haven't gotten there yet but you are well on your way. You could do a friend a big favor by sharing your little secret.
● Love: The couch and the TV have served you well, but it's time to pry yourself off the furniture and get out of the house. Clear your head with a walk around the block. You never know: That cute neighbor might be outside watering the plants.
● General: Your luck continues to be very good today, and you are getting used to having things go your way. This feeling of confidence is a huge boon to your creativity, so make sure you find some time to work out all your brilliant ideas. Put your thoughts down on paper, record your latest song, finish knitting that scarf, or just whip up that fantastic cake recipe you've been saving for so long. Once you start exercising your creativity, your happiness will skyrocket even more.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Customers will adore you, and your peers will find it hard to resist any suggestion you may have regarding any project or policy: Put on your good-natured face and wear it throughout the day.
● Finances: It's maddening to go over the numbers again and again, but until you find that needle in the haystack, that's exactly what you have to do. There's no rushing through it, either. You're in for the duration so you might as well resign yourself to that fact.
● Love: Spend a few hours completing a project or organizing your life. When you're finished, you'll feel a huge sense of freedom and relief. Then you won't feel guilty about lounging on the couch, watching TV the rest of the afternoon.
● General: You'll witness an ugly exchange between two people you respect today. One of them feels more deserving of the praise the other one received. You know what it's like to feel overlooked, so you could be useful in helping heal the bruised ego in this situation. Make a subtle overture of support, but don't step right in and start telling people what's what. Offering your help is all you can do -- you can't make people accept it.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Try to be flexible for now, but don't expect a return to full productivity until a few days have passed. Work, after all, is not easy for you right now, with strange and unexpected obstacles causing delays and frustration.
● Finances: You can connect with people no matter how far away they are, both emotionally and geographically. Your nose for money is outshined for a change by your nose for the truth. You need to find the facts and no one can stop you from doing just that.
● Love: If you're sitting on a burning little secret right now, it's a good time to get if off your chest. Dishonesty is poison for you right now, so share your heart whenever possible. A clear conscience is the best type of self-confidence.
● General: If you spend too much time performing too many experiments, you aren't going to end up learning very much. Too many contradictory conclusions will be formed, and you'll be farther behind than when you started. Today, spend your time thoroughly exploring just one idea -- test your theory out, and then go over all the findings a few times. You'll enjoy the single-mindedness of such focused work and -- more importantly -- you'll quickly see what the next steps should be.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: The stars smile on your ability to create meaning out of chaos. Through careful experimentation with small variations in procedure, you will identify the optimal course of action for you and your team. You should be able to implement it right away.
● Finances: Be careful in your dealings with others. You naturally want to take on most of the work but you won't necessarily get most of the rewards for it. Be sure you don't let the group take unfair advantage of your drive and enthusiasm.
● Love: If someone rubs you the wrong way today, take a good look at yourself. It's triggering something in you. Do a little soul searching and come up with an answer. Besides, you'll have a little more understanding and patience for others.
● General: It might feel as though you're not quite living in reality today -- the universe is sending you lots of fantastic energy, which will definitely be a welcome (and very entertaining) notion. However, whenever your daily routine is put on its ear, you have to expect a period of mild discomfort. Luckily, by the middle of the day, you should be well into the groove of the whimsical nature of the day and at ease with the unusual (if not downright odd) activities going on all around you.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: A periodic assertion of control will crop up soon, so don't panic when the temperature of the room heats up. Your immediate supervisor or your most important client will make their displeasure known, but it will soon blow over.
● Finances: You enjoy helping others. When you see someone in need, you help first and ask questions later. So it hurts when you're not treated the same way in return. Asking for help, especially money, is humbling and that's not all bad.
● Love: Meet some new people already. Now's a great time to join a special interest club, a political organization or a charitable cause. You'll meet interesting, kindred spirits, and who knows? Maybe you'll make a love connection.
