Free Daily Horoscope - January 30 2017
● General: You've been making some great changes in your life, and others are starting to notice. In fact, you've been the topic of some speculation for several days now, and a few people are turning green with envy over your accomplishments. A strong support network surrounds you, and it's time you realized it. The warmth will give you a nice sense of momentum that will drive you into one heck of a great mood all day.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Use your restlessness to good advantage. Move quickly into some new kind of territory -- you can seize a huge advantage over everyone if you get busy while they're still dawdling.
● Finances: Your mind is locked into goal mode. Nothing matters to you but achieving your objectives. That kind of tunnel vision is admirable on many levels, but make sure you don't block out other, equally important things for the sake of your finances.
● Love: You secretly envy someone's so-called perfect relationship, but what you fail to realize is this: Nothing is as it seems. Problems abound, always -- don't forget that. You're better off focusing on your own life and love. Don't worry about what's happening with the Joneses.
● General: You are feeling curious right now, especially about people and customs of other countries. This could be one of the most enlightening periods of your life if you let yourself follow your desire to ask more questions and take more social risks. Keep probing into areas that confuse, beguile or even frustrate you. If you don't understand something, then you need to figure it out. Don't stop until you feel educated and rewarded. It shouldn't take too long.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: More information or better conditions should be on the way in the near future, and the risk will be considerably safer then. Until then, financial risks will not pay off, so defer them for later.
● Finances: You're tempted to try something drastic, but a big part of you wants to stay in safe, conservative territory. That means you're basically sitting still, and so is your money. There's really nothing wrong with that for now, as long as you don't tread water for long.
● Love: You're all sweet and cuddly today, so finding someone to snuggle with tonight shouldn't be a problem. Your patience will be rewarded on the dating scene when you are genuine -- don't let your stubbornness take over. Resist the urge to dominate.
● General: You have many layers to your personality, which is good because it makes you an interesting person. But it can also be bad, because each one of those layers is something you have to nurture consciously. And right now, you aren't spreading your energy around equally. Today, spend time doing something you've been neglecting for a while. Maybe it's a hobby, maybe it's a beauty regimen, maybe it's a favorite sport. But get yourself back in balance.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Gather your partners or teammates and inspire them to take immediate action over the next few days. If you're on your own, it'll be that much easier, but make sure somebody somewhere has got your back.
● Finances: You're going to stick with the tried and true. No, you're going to go for something completely foreign and new. It all depends on who you're talking to at the moment, because you are easily swayed by the financial styles of anyone you come into contact with today. Surround yourself with wealthy types.
● Love: You totally rock today -- your optimism and enthusiasm will light up any room you walk into. Your greatest problem is too many options. Who will go home with you tonight? Don't try too hard. Allow the cuties to come to you.
● General: Relationships are about creating a healthy balance of power, and you've been the one giving it up for too long. It's time to get things back to an equitable state and for you to get more of what you want. So today, it's not only okay for you to push the scales so they tip in your favor -- it's healthy for the relationship. The other person won't put up nearly the fight you fear they will. They've grown a bit tired of being the leader for so long. They're ready to hand over the reins.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Your nurturing ways are vital to making it all come together over the next week or so. Find a way to meet your own needs (both personal and professional) while satisfying clients and colleagues.
● Finances: Don't even think about talking money today. The subject makes you want to weep, either for joy or in agony. Either way, no one wants to witness it. Try to stick to intellectual subjects if you have to discuss finances at all.
● Love: You're a natural-born leader -- some would say a pied pipe. But remember, if you take too much control, things could backfire. So rule with an iron fist in a velvet glove -- just make sure it's red and cashmere lined. You might as well look good while you're doing it.
● General: Try to get into a conversation with the smartest person you know today, even if it's over email. They have a plan you need to hear, and it involves an unusual cultural experience. Find out what they have cooking and if you can get involved. Even if you're not too into the idea, try to muster up some enthusiasm just the same -- it's important to be more open right now. This person holds the ticket to your next big spiritual growth spurt, so take this opportunity.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: This day brings you a new perspective. Tasks will be more fun than usual, and the hours will fly by as you move forward at a much faster pace. Your love affair with your job intensifies (or begins, if you've been iffy up until now).
● Finances: You're hanging onto your money for dear life. That's nothing new, but perhaps you're holding on too tightly. You should loosen your grip a bit and see what happens. The extra energy you liberate can be put to use in more productive ways.
● Love: Accentuate your regal nature, but don't let your pride keep you in a relationship that tames your natural charisma and drive. Now is no time to compromise -- don't look for bargains in the relationship department. Go for couture, not the knockoff. After all, you're worth it!
● General: Today, someone's brilliant one-liner will do more than tickle your funny bone -- it will ignite a tiny spark in your heart. Few people realize how having fun can lead to romance, though you have always understood the connection. Your ideal mate is more likely to be someone who makes you smile than someone who makes you swoon. Remember this when you are considering which crushes to pursue. Hold off on accepting an invitation from anyone who's coming on too strong.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Your reputation for reliability is more important than a temporary boost to profit. Even so, you've seen an opportunity and are almost desperate to go for it -- but obligations keep you from taking full advantage of the situation.
● Finances: Nothing about your financial routine feels normal. Your checkbook is right where it belongs but the balance is not what it should be; your wallet is where it always is but you can't find the right credit card hiding in it. Be sure to check on things that sneak up on you quietly, like changing due dates or minimum payments.
● Love: Use your knack for discovery -- usually saved for finding lost keys -- to find the perfect date. Stop playing matchmaker for your friends and become your own yenta. After all who knows you better than yourself? Besides, how can anyone resist you?
● General: When the going gets rough today, just reach out to your friends -- that's what they are there for! While they might not be able to fix your problems, they can at least figure out a way to put a smile on your face. You've been in a bit of a depressed phase, but that isn't necessarily anything to worry about. Everyone goes through blue periods, and it's part of life. You need to feel whatever you're feeling and work your way through emotions -- even if they are negative.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: The next week or so presents a good opportunity to get the word out or influence important customers. Your expressive nature is at the forefront now, and you can work it to your advantage with ease.
● Finances: Your way of communicating your financial wishes is more sophisticated than running signals out the window on the laundry line, but not by much. It's a classic illustration of the old phrase, the more things change the more they stay the same. There's really no point in trying to modernize, though, because it's working for you.
● Love: It's time to write a new musical score to celebrate your new romantic co-star. Clean out those tired, old Def Leppard ballads from your iPod and make room for a fresh start. After all, it is a new day.
● General: You're famous for thinking things over -- and over, and over, and over again. Truth be told, you've been known to obsess -- just a little -- every now and then. So now, with a rather serious issue on the table, your loved ones will be more than surprised to see you reacting in what can only be called a spontaneous manner. It's okay. Once they're over the shock, they'll love it. They may even encourage you to keep up the good work.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: An impulsive decision may lead to an increased risk for you professionally -- but also the chance for a bigger opportunity. It's a challenge, but you can mitigate things by playing it conservatively for now.
● Finances: You'll want to shout for joy at some good news today, before weeping with relief. That's the kind of roller coaster you'd gladly ride, especially if you have to choose between it and the one leading up to it. Don't be surprised, though, by the shocked reactions you get from others.
● Love: When you play, you play for keeps. So for the rest of this month, don't take yourself so seriously -- just try to have fun. Avoid the temptation to hook yourself to one person. Instead, retract your stinger and play the field.
● General: It's usually a great idea to have a direct manner with people, but sometimes it's much smarter to be subtle in your communication. Drop a hint and see if anyone picks up on it. Even if all you want to do is start a conversation, let someone else be the one to start it. Plant the seed with a brief mention of a tempting topic, and the curiosity of the people you're with will take it from there. You are capable of being provocative without being pushy right now.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You're the center of attention among people above and below you, and it's uniformly positive. If you're getting your evaluation sometime during the next week, it should go off without a hitch.
● Finances: Strangers are coming out of the woodwork and talking to them is as easy as talking to your best friends. Be sure lending them your money isn't as easy, though. There's a reason they are so open to you. As long as you are clear about that, you're fine.
● Love: You couldn't be less affected right now. As far as you're concerned, the world is one big poker game and you're the dealer. Don't allow your fondness for fun to sabotage a potential love connection. Practical jokes are fine with your friends, but a new romance might not understand your sense of humor.
● General: You just accomplished a big victory, but you'd be wise to stop reminding others about it. You've definitely earned the position you're in, but people are very sensitive about things right now -- their egos are delicate and it's vital to maintain your good relationships with them. You don't need to minimize your accomplishments; you just have to avoid being pompous. Think about the future and cultivate goodwill today. People are impressed by good winners.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Try to stand back and let your instincts lead the way. You are feeling unusually idealistic and ready to change course, but first you need to make sure your doubts aren't getting in the way.
● Finances: Don't let any anxiety worm its way into your integrity. Thoughts of the future tend to have you thinking schemes not plans, so just pretend you can't see beyond today. As long as you continue spending and saving on course, you'll eventually get where you need to be, so keep the blinders on.
● Love: Wild horses couldn't drag a secret out of you, which could cause a potential love interest to view you as withholding, never sensing how vulnerable you really are. Your sterling self-control may cause a spate of lonely nights and empty beds, so let a new flame melt that icy exterior.
● General: All of the inspiration and energy you've been waiting for will finally roar into your life first thing this morning. You'll want to jump right on this wave of productivity as soon as possible, because it probably won't last all day long. Others will love your new and improved attitude -- so much so that you could gain some support from former foes. Today, it's all about having fun and getting stuff done while you can, and then relaxing when you can't.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Your closest friends and associates will help you find new ways to expand your business or your network of contacts. It might feel almost explosive, but it will work to your advantage in the long run.
● Finances: If ever there was a right time to get your message out there, this is it. People can't help but be moved by the images you describe and that translates directly into reaching for their wallets. Make your pitch while you have a rapt audience.
● Love: What's odd to everyone else, is completely normal to you. No wonder you're known for not being in step with your peers, who flock to your enigmatic energy. The difficulty, however, is your inability to pick just one weirdo. You're not conventional -- why not try 'em all?
● General: Why are you trying so hard to be modest about all of your accomplishments? It makes no sense to be humble now. Let everyone know how proud you are of yourself -- you'll get no denials from anyone! You will join the ranks of friends in high places, because your credibility and influence are about to increase dramatically. Start acting and looking the part. It's a great time to invest in building your wardrobe into something more impressive.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Anyone and everyone are fair game for you. You know you're right this time, and you're in a position to make your views known and widely accepted -- just don't say anything you'll regret later on.
● Finances: When you daydream about riches, you get an infusion of excitement about all of life's possibilities. So don't bother being realistic when you indulge in this kind of rapture. When it comes to financial success, the sky's the limit.
● Love: You're more than happy to get lost in the crowd right now. After all, it's much easier to go along with the masses than to blaze your own trail. But, you can't hide that easily -- someone is watching your every move. Try as you may, you'll never escape their inquiring gaze.
