Free Daily Horoscope - January 24 2017
● General: Your focus for the next few days will be on one thing, and one thing only: making sure your dear ones feel warm, wonderful and, above all else, well-loved. And you'll be extremely well equipped for the job. The universe has sent several planetary envoys to help you -- but then, as fiery and determined as you are by nature, you may not need them. Defense is second only to offense on your list of specialties.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Don't let your more fearful emotions get the better of you. If you start to feel on edge, even aggressive, it could be because of a deadline looming. This one has nothing to do with work but has all of its weightiness.
● Finances: Subliminal issues can work for you or against you. Fear of failure is a popular topic of conversation, but other subliminal fears can motivate you to action instead of inaction. Yours is lighting a fire under you today and you can't stop working toward success.
● Love: As you ramp up that romantic roaming, think about the good you can do others. Give altruism and Cupid equal time right now. The universe will look kindly on your generosity, so volunteer your time, most of all.
● General: With any luck, you haven't committed all your free time to one particular person -- because more interesting, exciting and exotic admirers are en route, one of whom might disrupt the routine of your day in a wonderful way. Of course, if you're attached, your best bet will be to smile, say thank you to the fans and move along. Stay focused on that one quality person you so wisely chose -- who'll be delighted to let you know just how much you're adored.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Time for some serious examination of your deeper emotions and motivations. You want nothing more during your work hours than to focus on relationships, and now that you have the time, you want to get back to the office.
● Finances: Financial matters are sensitive subjects but not because anyone involved has something to hide. Following societal norms is important even though a lot is at stake. You'll get the information you need sooner or later, and you are better off beating around the bush than being direct.
● Love: Although you're incredibly busy today, don't forget to take a few minutes to catch your breath. During your break, check your inbox. If you receive an email from someone fascinating, arrange a date immediately.
● General: For better or worse, someone has captured your attention, totally and completely. You can't remember the last time you felt this way. And there's a good reason for that: You probably haven't ever felt this way. At least, not since becoming an adult. It's called passion, and this wave of it is here for at least the day. What you do with it is up to you, of course, but you can cross arguing off the list right away.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: You're tempted to take out your passive aggressive arsenal. That's why it's a good day to be alone. At a minimum, you're feeling willful. Why subject friends and family to your underhanded emotions?
● Finances: What do you do when service is slower than usual? Do you leave a small tip or do you complain? How you behave in that kind of situation says a lot about who you are. You'll be on display in a more important scenario today so be aware of how you handle yourself.
● Love: Your boss will pair you up with someone who raises the hair on your neck. Get to know this person before you make a final judgment. Between the two of you, creativity and leadership flow naturally. Give this one time to gel.
● General: Who loves entertaining more than you do? Right, no one. And who loves coming to your place? Right, everyone. So don't be surprised if the urge to open up your home for dinner, drinks and some light-hearted socializing comes along -- or if you answer that urge by doing some serious shopping for provisions. Remember, though, that it wouldn't hurt to let the guests bring dessert.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: If you were at work, you would go over all the fine print before signing. Do the same before making commitments or getting involved on your own time today. Even a simple plan like brunch or a movie could use some review.
● Finances: You should be more cautious than usual in all things regarding money, but especially if you have to make any kind of commitment. Signing on the dotted line is out, but even verbal agreements should be suspect today. Keep your mouth closed and your money in your pocket.
● Love: When a scenario is presented to you today, the powers that be will expect you to find a solution. Don't panic. Instead, use patience and rationale. Think the situation through, anticipating certain outcomes, then speak. Your answer will dazzle them.
● General: Be careful who you flirt with today, because it will be all too easy to capture someone's heart without even trying. Does that mean you can't talk to anyone at all? Well of course not -- but confine yourself to your very own sweetie as much as you possibly can. It would probably be best for all parties concerned. Especially since getting rid of any new admirers won't be easy.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: If nurturing your family members is your way of soothing yourself, go all out today -- focus on home and your place in it. Being self-centered is unhealthy no matter how you go about doing it.
● Finances: You know that everything that really matters is beneath the surface so you have no problem dealing with a wacky looking group of people. The amount they invest has nothing to do with how they appear, either. Use your intuition to sniff out the deep pockets.
● Love: Time feels tight and stifling. The problem is, your time management skills need an overhaul. Ask a friend to help you reevaluate your schedule. You'll find lots of extra minutes among your hefty to-do list.
● General: Thinking of doing something different with your hair, your body or your wardrobe? Good for you. Change is good for the soul and refreshing to the spirit. Just don't get too carried away. You wouldn't want a dear one to walk by you without recognizing you, right? Besides, you're pretty darned close to perfect in the eyes of your sweetie. Better have a powwow before you do anything too drastic.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Others may have plenty of suggestions for you if you reach out to them but stick to your gut when choosing your goals. Don't waste time feeling restless -- take charge of coming up with a plan for the day.
● Finances: You want to play in the big leagues. Others around you may say you have unrealistic expectations but that shouldn't persuade you to change them. Use these lofty goals as the force that drives you toward them. No matter where you end up, they will have been beneficial for you.
● Love: When you get into the groove today, stay there. You'll find total satisfaction and ease in your routine today. Although some tricky minds will try to lure you out of your comfort zone, resist the temptation. You're better off playing it safe.
● General: Finally, at long last, you're ready to come out of your cocoon. And not a moment too soon, in the opinion of your sweetheart and your friends, all of whom have probably been pouting since you decided to hide out a few days ago. Well go ahead and call them now, or see them tonight if you feel like it. And before they have a chance to give you a hard time, explain that absence really does make the heart grow fonder.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Get reacquainted with your personal life and your family today. You're like a delicate fish, sensitive to changes in your bowl. In fact, once business is out of the picture, you're like a fish out of the water.
● Finances: There have been quite a few changes made in the way you do business. You understand that adjusting to the times is a must if you want to stay afloat, much less succeed. But there is still one time-honored trick of the trade that you refuse to modify. It comes in handy today.
● Love: Resist the urge to talk up yourself today. Instead, focus on the other person. Listen to their life story and really hear what they're saying. They'll find your listening skills irresistibly charming.
● General: It's easy for you to become rather focused on -- okay, even obsessed with -- a tiny thing. So if you're worried about something and you don't see any end in sight, talk to someone about it. Why live with the worry when you don't have to? Wouldn't it be better to set your mind at ease, once and for all? At the very least, spend some time relaxing with a friend you've known forever.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: All you need is just enough gusto to get yourself out of bed today. Overdoing it will only tap your resources for later. The rest of the day will get a grip on you and propel you forward with no effort on your part.
● Finances: You just don't have the kind of confidence you think you need to attract people to you or your cause. Money is not what's lacking. Confidence without it is even more intense than the kind that comes with financial success, so consider yourself well situated to earn it.
● Love: You're in a great position to meet new people. Find fun places and people, and let yourself go. Celebrate you and show the world your gifts. Guaranteed, someone interesting is watching you.
● General: Who's jealous? You? Believe it or not, you just might be. And if you feel guilty about working so much and taking time away from your loved ones, the attention that someone else shows them could be enough to stretch even the most open-minded, freedom-loving person past the breaking point. That's if you're not careful. But you'll be careful. And more attentive?
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Don't devote the entire day to your internal musings. Sure you're surrounded by colleagues most of the time, and it makes perfect sense that you want to be alone. But you'd be missing out on important things in the bigger picture.
● Finances: You don't want to deal with anyone today, for love or money. Make sure you really mean the sentiment, though, before you retreat. Can you really afford to retreat, though? You don't want to let a fleeting shy feeling make you miss an important opportunity.
● Love: Don't hold back on those crazy thoughts and notions of yours. You might scare some people off, but that's okay. They're not worthy of your personality anyway. Those who stick around truly admire your wit.
● General: Someone is working hard from behind the scenes to cause a problem between you and a person you love. So if you've had that feeling lately and you thought you were losing your mind, you can rest assured that you're not. But what are you going to about it? Well, there's only one thing to do: March right up to them, tell them you know what they're doing and demand that they stop. You can bet they will.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You've spent enough time looking inward. You have all the information you need to make an important decision. Now get in gear and move forward. Start by getting organized and ready for the upcoming week.
● Finances: Your money is like your most cherished friend: You just can't see it objectively. That should be where the similarities stop. You're putting a bit too much love into the part of your holdings that is extra, and it's growing. Remind yourself of its strictly utilitarian purposes.
● Love: Your living space is stacked to the hilt with periodicals and paperwork. You'll feel lots better about yourself if you tackle your clutter. Once you clean up that mental debris, you'll have much more energy for other pursuits.
● General: You've been thinking about this for days -- weeks, even. Are you going to stay and try to work this out, or let go of the whole thing and start over? You've laid out all the pros and cons in your mind and you're still just not sure. Well, talking to a friend about it will help. But in the end, you'll have to make up your mind all by yourself. How about taking some time alone?
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You won't be able to stay completely out of an interoffice conflict but you'll be more helpful as a mediator than a participant. See what you can do to cool both sides down and get them talking rationally.
● Finances: Your career may have skyrocketed but you are still feeling at loose ends. You need to feel like you belong to a social group or are useful to others in some emotional way. Put your ambition aside for the day and come up with a list of the things that would make you feel complete, other than work and money.
● Love: Give that long shot a try today. The universe opens up whole new realms of possibilities, so take advantage of your good energy right now. This mutual willingness could lead to intensity beyond your imagination.
● General: Intimacy isn't something that comes easily to you. At least not now that you've had time to tuck a couple of years under your belt and learn how fickle some people can be. There's someone in your life at the moment, however, who seems not just sincere, but also legitimately interested in you. At this point, you can trust your own judgment and you know it.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: If you are working from home and you feel more on edge at home than you do at work, do not worry. Don't fight it -- just try to find joy and peace during these very few hours.
● Finances: If you're not sure of a thing, then don't commit. Even if you were about to get married and had cold feet, you would have the opportunity to humiliate yourself by backing out at the last minute. This situation is not much different, even though the significant other is an investment.
● Love: Don't stifle yourself with work and other responsibilities today. Tend to the priorities, then let your hair down. Everything else can wait. Move from happy hour to a dance-crazed evening. Even if you're dazed the next morning, the memories are worth it.
