Free Daily Horoscope - February 20 2017
● General: The stars are gently reminding you that there's more than one point of view, and you need to take a certain party's perspective into account before you move ahead. You're moving with brisk progress toward what you desire -- and you're about to get it, too -- but it's important that you don't trample or shove anyone out of the way, especially if you want them to stick around for the next phase of the journey. So stop and inquire about someone's feelings.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Dust off the charm. The drive to get ahead has overtaken your winning ways. Drop the guard and soften up the week with your unexpected wiles. Once the mood is set, you're ready to send that new project into orbit.
● Finances: When things are going wrong, do something about it. You're not comfortable with your financial situation but you feel powerless to change it. You have more control than you realize. Don't let your subliminal insecurities affect your financial reality.
● Love: The power of touch is huge right now, even if you're out on a first date. A nonchalant brush of the arm or gentle rub of the neck relays everything that words can't convey. Don't miss the opportunity to inspire some skin on skin contact.
● General: If anyone is entitled to have some fun, it's you -- and it's about darned time too. You've turned down all kinds of wonderful temptations lately, in just about every category. But just as you start to wonder why, the universe will arrange to deliver your reward -- a one-of-a-kind reward designed especially for you. Don't question it, and don't worry about why it's there. Entice an appropriate playmate and enjoy!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Stick to no-brainers, and feel the recharge while you leave strategy, conflict and new projects howling at the door. Routine never felt so good, like wrapping up in a soft, warm comforter this workday.
● Finances: Passion is your compass, and you don't really care one way or the other about any of your current options. That makes it especially hard to know what direction to go in. You can't afford to sit this one out, and yet you don't want to pick something you don't have deep feelings about. Such is life.
● Love: A romantically interested stranger is very interested in you. Think they're not watching? They are, so look and act your best right now. The opportunity will present itself when introductions are made: Now is not the time to flaunt your foibles.
● General: You excel at beginnings, but when it comes to seeing things through 'til the end, you may need a little help. Team up with a like-minded buddy or coworker -- one who shares a similar outlook but a different skill set would be perfect -- and see if the two of you can't combine forces to make things come out just right. What's most important is that at the end of this day's hard work, you make sure that you both get the credit.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Keep both feet on the ground for a full count, even if it slows you down a bit. Overconfidence at the office will definitely cause problems for you. If you bite off more than you can chew, someone else may have to finish and your boss won't be impressed.
● Finances: It seems like things couldn't progress at a slower pace, but you have even more calculating to do before you go anywhere. There are no shortcuts you can take that wouldn't ultimately set you back. You're stuck with being thorough.
● Love: Your social circle's about as stale as week-old bread -- so meet some new people already. Join a club, a political organization or get in touch with high school pals. The opportunities for new love connections abound: Put yourself out there.
● General: It seems like everyone in your immediate vicinity has been given a mission impossible, and they've all chosen to accept it -- without informing you. Meanwhile, here you sit, feeling like you might get knocked over in the ensuing fracas. Even if you're not in the middle of the action, you're really the only one getting things done right now, most of all because you understand the value of hard work over putting on a good show.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Sidelong glances and riveting texts will bring you to the jumping-off point. The go/no-go decision creates butterflies and jitters. Live up the buzz but prepare for both the leap and landing.
● Finances: You can't afford to be uncertain. You have to act decisive, whether you're sure of yourself or not. Take out your pen and sign on the dotted line as if you were born to do it. The truth is it won't lead to any major upheaval either way.
● Love: You're normally resistant to setups and blind dates, but loosen up on your ideals. Allow a well-meaning friend to hook you up today, especially if they're married and in a successful relationship. This means they have a good sense for quality dating material.
● General: Giving up something you love just to please someone you love just doesn't make any sense. You and a good friend or sweetheart might be locking horns over an activity that you see as necessary, but that they view as a frivolous self-indulgence. Agree to disagree -- or better yet, invite them along to experience the joys of something that you know first-hand. Who knows -- you might just make a convert out of them yet!
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Even fancy dancing won't discourage unwanted attention today. Sometimes you have to shake a leg and mash a few toes to keep that certain someone from trying to two-step you onto the floor.
● Finances: You're unhappy with the way you make money. It may be glamorous or bring in more than you need, but you're convinced you'd be just as happy selling antiques at a flea market. The feeling will pass, so endure.
● Love: Show your appreciation for the undying love and support of your friends and family with an impromptu dinner party -- with one caveat. Ask them to bring a single friend along. It's a great way to make new memories and reminisce about old times.
● General: Your best self is currently on display and drawing plenty of admirers, so make sure you're not inadvertently pushing them away by donning a cool facade. The time is ripe to work out the finer details in terms of negotiations of contracts at work, especially if you have a partner that you usually work with. In fact, any interactions and relationships with others are highlighted right now, so make the most of these easy influences regarding them.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Your ability to make rapid-fire decisions will make you the target of criticism. Armed with reason, stand your ground and the opportunity is yours. Pot shots can't touch you.
● Finances: You may finally realize that at least one of your financial goals is unrealistic. That only means you need to reevaluate your goals, not your tactics. That's a perfectly sensible thing to do every once in a while, no matter what the reason behind it is.
● Love: Work, mortgages and car payments are such a drag. Instead of bogging down with adult responsibilities today, let your hair down and have a little fun. Break out the Twister and play a few rounds, naked. You know someone who's down to get busy in their birthday suit!
● General: Today brims with romantic potential -- if you're involved, your relationship takes a delightful turn. Singletons can expect that their crush will pick up on their unspoken signals and, even better, reciprocate those feelings. In addition to this love jackpot, you can expect some enticing career prospects to present themselves, too. If some friends feel left out in the cold by your good fortune, woo them back with your genuine affection.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: With grace, dispense wisdom and to-do lists, propelling others into motion on the myriad tasks only you perceive the whole of. After all, people turn to you for answers and guidance and common sense.
● Finances: If material possessions have been your primary source of motivation thus far, you are in for a happy surprise. You find something that sets you on fire and it's not nearly as superficial as 'things'. As far as personal changes go, this one runs deep.
● Love: A certain someone's trying to get a hold of you, but don't respond just yet. Instead, let the suspense build. If you play it like you're too available, you'll lose a bit of that suspense. Even if you're on pins and needles, use some of that famous grit to get you through the end of the day -- then call 'em back.
● General: You're about to embark on an extraordinary opportunity or relationship. Be receptive and open to the influences that are intent on presenting you with experiences that will shape your mind, body and soul if only you are willing to relax your sense of control and deal with what comes your way. There's no need to decide one way or the other what your course of action will be. Instead, watch, wait and listen for your golden chance.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: If a task or project has stalled out, chuck the panic out the window and call a brainstorming session. Playing with ideas and saying yes to every possibility gives you a wide berth.
● Finances: You want success so intensely you can feel it in every cell of your body. Others can, too. Just being around you means soaking up some of the high energy you are radiating. Be thankful it's not desperation.
● Love: You need to do some organizing today -- you'll feel a million times better after you spend time paying some bills, going through your mail and cleaning out your wallet or purse. It'll clear up all kinds of space and energy to pursue love and romantic interests.
● General: When it comes to making sure you perform your best, what really counts is how much time you spend preparing. You have a series of hurdles to clear, but it won't be a problem if you do all the groundwork with diligence and attention. You've also got the ability to ask for help from people who are in a great position to lend you the resources you need, so take advantage of their offers. They want you to succeed, too.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Play the role of mentor and teacher with aplomb and diplomacy, first teaching the tasks you wish to shed. When knowledge runs as deeply as yours, it's only right that people turn to you for assistance and expertise, and you should get something in return.
● Finances: You're too moody to focus on anything practical. You'd rather let yourself get lost in your dreams, even if they are morose ones. You'd better figure out why, and fast because there is no time in your schedule for such indulgences. Money calls you back to reality, again and again, and again.
● Love: You're not always cool with your single status, but today, you should embrace every fiber of it. Just think of all the things you couldn't do if you were hooked up with someone. Call in sick tomorrow and take a trip. Do something crazy and fun -- let freedom ring!
● General: Put aside those loose ends for now and concentrate on initiating something that's near and dear to your heart. It's a fantastic time to lay the foundations for a project that needs lots of time and TLC. So start drawing up plans, brainstorming and building those castles in the air. Make sure to give yourself plenty of freedom. Think of the sky not as being the limit, but more like a guideline.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Your adrenaline is flowing like that of an astronaut right before liftoff. It's a great time to seek a challenge. Toss your hat into the ring for that big, important project. Your boss will be impressed with your tenacity.
● Finances: Take a step back from your quandary. You'll see that you are stuck in a strictly financial muddle and that those involved with you are not actually your friends, although you all like to play along. Once you get your perspective back, it will be that much easier to act sensibly.
● Love: Take extra special care of yourself today -- treat yourself to something totally new and different. Whether it's an exotic facial or a down payment on the trip of a lifetime, you're ready to live life to the fullest. When you're on, it shows and everyone else notices.
● General: You excel at solving puzzles on your own, but right now, holding your problems in won't make you stronger -- on the contrary, it might deprive you of the help that's well within your reach if you could only make the smallest gesture toward it. Remember that asking for aid doesn't make you weak -- it makes you smart. So if something's been on your mind, grab a friend and pour out your troubles to their sympathetic ears.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Should trouble loom on the horizon, being alert and cautious to even the subtlest of intuitive pings gives you the evasive edge. Turn on your mental radar warning system and crank the volume up to the max.
● Finances: Everything around you has slowed down but you've continued going full speed ahead. You're about to leave the atmosphere. No need to make yourself slow down, though. Haven't you always told yourself the sky's the limit?
● Love: Believe it or not, it's not all about you today. So don't hog the spotlight, especially when it comes to a potential love interest. Listen with a discerning ear and read between lines. Soak up the underlying message and you'll create a sparky connection with someone.
● General: How long has it been since you made a real effort to get away from it all? Okay, you may not be able to get away to Aruba on the spur of the moment (although if you can, you definitely should), but you can find a few moments to spend some TLC on yourself. How about a walk in the park before work? Maybe a few hours after work with the phone unplugged and your favorite book? It's amazing how refreshing even a brief respite can be.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: A partnership that's only had smooth sailing will encounter a windy, stormy patch. Consider it as a test of the rigging and your steering powers. Once the waters calm and settle, the view will be twice as spectacular.
● Finances: You forgot how it feels to choose between being the hunter and being the prey. You want none of either role. You can deal with the emotional turmoil that objecting causes more easily than you can deal with the guilt associated with choosing. The money issues are secondary.
● Love: No wonder the responses to your profile have fallen off: It's time to spice things up. Action shots, baby, action shots. If you've been to interesting places, post your adventures and anecdotes. Rely on your broad range of interests to attract an interesting pool of potentials.
