Free Daily Horoscope - February 18 2017
● General: Your energy level will continue to lag today, and it might be high time for you to think about what else you can do to take better care of your physical self. You can do something healthy to get fit that is actually fun, you know! Think about the types of activities you like to do -- walking, hiking, biking or skating -- and just do them more often. The hardest part is just getting started, and the stars say that today is the perfect day to do just that.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Fortunately, you're in the perfect frame of mind for taking action today. You need to make a bold move right away to capitalize on the trends that are hitting the streets now.
● Finances: It's not a good time to embark on any new projects. You're better off tying up some loose ends on ones that have been left hanging. Making good use of your time is a must. There will be plenty of time to rest once you wrap things up.
● Love: Any applicants for a position in your heart are getting extra scrutiny now. Sure, it's a good idea to give that resume a close look (and to check references, if possible), but be sure to give them a fair chance too.
● General: It's all about fun today -- finding it, making it, and stretching it out for as long as you possibly can. If you are in the middle of a romance, the two of you should take some time today to go off on a little adventure. Hunt down an out-of-the-way place where you can pretend you're on your first date all over again. And if you're single, the fun should be easy to come by -- all you need to do is grab your wildest friend and find out what they have in mind!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Now would be a good time for you to suggest outside arbitration for any struggles you're having. You will do a lot better telling your story to a third party than banging your head against the same wall.
● Finances: One way to stop complaining about your dull, boring routine is to jar your nerves by losing it. Something brings you to your senses today, and you'll realize just how close to the edge you were without even knowing it. There's nothing like fear to make safety and routine seem comforting.
● Love: You're mighty intriguing, whether you're talking someone's ear off or playing the mysterious, sultry type. Whether you have a date or you're going out on the town with your posse, it's a five-star night.
● General: Don't feel guilty if you're having a hard time communicating with your family right now. Sometimes familiarity breeds contempt, and the people who know you the best are also the people who bug you the most. Just give yourself some distance from the relatives who are getting on your nerves. You need to keep yourself from saying something or doing something that could hurt their feelings. It's okay to need a break from the ties that bind every once in a while!
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Your ability to get people to say 'yes' is peaking, and you can make the difference between a go-nowhere meeting and a new consensus. It won't take much more than a little gentle guidance and a few genuine smiles.
● Finances: Even though it's a day of fun, being smart about it is a must. You have costs to save and decisions to make every step of the way today. You're not exactly feeling like an egghead, but being intellectual can make you a pretty penny.
● Love: Beware of miscommunication, especially when it comes to little details like time, location and so forth. If you've got a date or are meeting friends, don't be surprised if something funny happens.
● General: You're relating better to other people right now, and some problems you've recently had with friends are fading away. When your communication is this good, you should enjoy it! So try to set aside time to socialize today. Meet a friend for a long lunch if you can, plan a dinner date with your sweetie, or just stop by a friend's house on the way home from work. Everyone has a lot to talk about right now, and it's always good to share ideas with like-minded people.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Budget issues pop up again and force you to rethink an upcoming purchase or investment. That's not to say that it must be abandoned -- but make sure you can really afford it now.
● Finances: You love a challenge unless it's on the home-front. Then you'll do practically anything to keep the peace. Try to resist your old stand-by approach of throwing money at the problem. The more effective way is riskier but free.
● Love: You may not meet the love of your life right now, but smaller-scale connections are a distinct possibility. And hey, a new friend grants you access to all their friends -- suddenly your social circle is expanding.
● General: A range of tempting treats (food and other things) will be dangled in front of you today. But before you reach right out and grab whatever seems appealing, pause to think. This is not a day to be impulsive and act on your every whim: it is a day to be a little bit more thoughtful -- a little bit more conservative than you usually are. Map out your course of action. Things will go smoothly if you have a good plan, so be patient. A golden opportunity is coming.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Even if you don't realize it, you are the star of the day -- so use that power to make a change. You can make a big difference if you shine your light somewhere it doesn't usually hit.
● Finances: You have at least one close enough friendship to count on being told the truth. When that person tells you you're wasting your money, you listen. Buying new equipment feels exciting, even romantic, but believe them when they tell you it's foolishness.
● Love: How's your current romantic strategy working for you? You might not be inclined to get analytical about it, but a little assessment of what's going well (and which areas could stand improvement) works wonders now.
● General: Seek out stimulation today! Luckily, it will be easy to find -- simply go out and explore new experiences, different cultures, unusual music, exotic foods or foreign films. Spend time with things that don't quite make sense to you -- and before the end of the day, these things will start to make a lot of sense. This includes the people in your life whose motivations are mysteries to you. Find out what makes them tick by asking open-ended questions and challenging them on a point or two.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Changes are coming soon that will necessitate some pretty advanced contortions from you and your teammates. It's time to hire a yoga instructor or find some other way to improve your flexibility.
● Finances: Everything you do has the ripple effect today, like it or not. In fact, you're making waves without even trying. Use that to your advantage or you risk washing away years of effort. That kind of bath is more than a minor setback.
● Love: Your subtle wit, unleashed at exactly the right moment, deeply charms a certain someone -- transporting you from mysterious and interesting to the charming center of their attention.
● General: You are in the midst of something very exciting, but there is some missing information that you need to uncover before you can go on to the next step with confidence. To find out what you need to know, seek out impartial voices right away -- they will help prevent you from becoming overwhelmed by extraneous details or secondhand gossip. Too much information is not a good thing right now, and you need someone who will help you sort through it all.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Strategic planning is perfect for your mindset today. You can switch between the big picture and the tiny details more easily than most people -- you'll need to expand your scope as wide as it can go right now.
● Finances: Don't worry, you don't have to balance your emotional needs with your financial needs today. You get to socialize, guilt-free. Not only is it a super day, but you know you've earned it. That makes it all the easier to appreciate.
● Love: Your powers of perception are exceptional now, and if you turn that eagle eye (and amazing instinct) on your love life, you may be very surprised by what (or who) you see. Look, listen and learn.
● General: Trusting other people has helped you to foster your relationships and grow as a person, but today you should play your cards a bit closer to your chest than you usually do. Circumstances beyond your control might create conditions that are conducive to loose lips -- and you don't want any private information getting into the wrong hands. Any type of information that you want to keep confidential needs to stay a secret right now. Keep quiet if you expect others to do the same.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: All those tiny stresses around you are starting to add up to something big. Try not to let them get the better of you right away. If you can, hold out for another day or so; help will arrive.
● Finances: Peace of mind is elusive. That's because your subliminal issues can't be run from, and neither can they be bought off. You have to face them once and for all and today's the day. You'll have much more energy left over for life's challenges once you do.
● Love: Somehow you always end up finding out the most interesting tidbits of information -- and right now, a juicy romantic secret could be whispered in your ear. Why not blab it to the interested parties?
● General: For the best results, keep to a steady pace today. If you have more free time in the afternoon than you have in the morning, don't put off all your errands until tonight. Instead, scatter them throughout your day. And if your morning schedule is wide open, you should avoid rushing ahead on things that need to be taken slowly. All the details need to be covered before you can go full steam ahead. Timing is important today, so don't let either impatience or procrastination guide you.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: It's not a good thing to count on or expect to last, but your run of good fortune will help you score some major points today. Build on it with good planning and good service and you'll end up a winner.
● Finances: You save months of preparation with one startling realization. You can see things as if you're standing on a cliff, and you like the vista. The view below you is scary but invigorating, and you can see your big financial picture as well as your network of loving friendships. Make the most of your new information.
● Love: It's a good thing you're your own boss right about now because if you had a significant other trying to tell you what to do, it wouldn't go over terribly well. Celebrate your autonomy and do what you want to do!
● General: Any impulse buys you make on credit today could end up draining your bank account of much-needed funds, so save the shopping until you're feeling more flush and can pay with cash. It's wise to take your time in any buying situation -- after all, what's the big rush? Make sure that you've done all your research before making any purchase, especially when it comes to big-ticket items like automobiles, computers or television sets. A new gadget can be seductive but not worth its price.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Be on your guard -- someone has you in their sights. If you can manage to swing through the next day or so with your eyes on your back, you should do fine, because their intentions aren't matched by their competence.
● Finances: Not everyone is as into their work as you are. You'd gladly sacrifice your day off to get the job done, but no one will take you up on your offer. That means you get a day of rest, like it or not. You'll actually enjoy it.
● Love: You're famous for putting your mind to getting what you want, and if you do so now -- and throw your heart behind it too -- you're likely to get great results. Why not apply that energy to the realm of romance?
● General: It doesn't take a lot of energy for you to see things that other people aren't seeing today. You can look beneath the surface of what people are doing with one quick glance. You can see that someone's smile is a false front, and that their happy-go-lucky attitude is just an act. If you feel like it, reach out to them and let them know that you can tell something is up with them. Let them know that you're there for them when they need to talk -- because soon they will.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You are going to have to decide between competing explanations or ideas that will flatly contradict each other -- and your choice will end up placing you squarely in one camp or the other.
● Finances: Personal issues are keeping you from enjoying life. Clearing them up once and for all will be worth the time you put into it, so don't wince at the money you could be making doing other things. Once you're done, being you will feel like a whole new experience. Enjoy.
● Love: Whether you're meeting up with friends or planning a hot date, take extra care to get all the details right. Being on time (or in the right place!) might not matter much to you, but others might not feel the same way.
● General: If someone asks you a question that stumps you, tell them that you'll figure it out later. Your brain is working fine, but it is working a bit slowly today -- so you might need to ask for more time than you usually need to complete certain tasks. Your brain power ebbs and flows just like your energy level. There's no miracle food or exercise that will help get the synapses firing faster -- it's just a normal, temporary slowdown that shouldn't cause you any real problems. Try not to let it bug you.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Try not to get involved in the little workplace dramas going on all around you. There's nothing to be gained from joining in, and you might actually get a chance to get some work done while they're busy.
● Finances: It's time for some good, old-fashioned home improvement, of the broom and bucket variety. You don't have to spend a bundle to feel like you're living in a brand new place. In fact, you don't have to spend a penny. All you need is elbow grease.
● Love: A friend may be in need of a little help with their relationship, and you're happy to offer an objective perspective. No need to mention it's these kinds of problems that make you happy to be single!
