Free Daily Horoscope - June 18 2017
● General: You don't mind helping the other members of a group if they get stuck and need your assistance -- that's why you work well as part of a team. Your actions prove you are good at taking orders as well as carrying them out, plus you can also be a fantastic leader. But this is a good time to hang out in the background and learn from someone else's knowledge. It shouldn't take long to emerge as one of the team's strongest members, which could definitely lead to some excellent opportunities for you.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Don't worry, things are about to settle down, but not just yet. Keep up the hard work through the afternoon, and you should able to sneak away earlier than you had expected.
● Finances: If you really think you can be happy doing as little as possible, then you have a real problem, and it's not simply a lack of funds. You need to find what motivates you to use your energy. Don't give up until it's clear.
● Love: Staying firmly in touch with your personal values now means you're that much closer to attaining a certain romantic goal. A long talk (both serious and funny) with a friend about what you want keeps you on target.
● General: It may seem like the universe is conspiring against you by throwing some ludicrous things your way, but luckily you have enough internal fortitude to withstand the silliness and come out unaffected by it all. Be prepared to run into some people or situations you find incredibly absurd, to say the least. Try to ignore someone who is simply trying to get a reaction out of you. Eventually, they'll get bored and move on. The worst thing you can do right now is show the other person that what they're doing concerns you in any way.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Those emails and voicemails aren't going to send themselves, so spend the afternoon taking care of communication concerns. By tomorrow, when you're lounging on the couch, you'll be grateful to have them out of the way.
● Finances: Your gears are turning. You may think you're coming up with some truly unique ideas, but the race is on because others are thinking along the same lines. If you want to succeed, you have to beat the masses to the finish.
● Love: While romance may not exactly be revved up, it's a good, solid day to be you. And -- bonus -- the plans you make now are favored by the stars. Perhaps getting your social calendar arranged should be a priority.
● General: An open mind is one of your best accessories at the moment. You're likely to encounter people you aren't really used to dealing with, but the experience can be an enriching one. It's important to remember that different doesn't automatically equal weird or wrong. Once you summon the courage to break the barriers between you, you may actually find you have a lot -- or at least something -- in common. Before the day is through, you may find you have a whole new opinion about something you were 'sure' about this morning.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Leverage your marketability and start improving your skills. Job opportunities are out there for the taking. Even if you're not planning to leave your current position, it never hurts to know what else is available.
● Finances: You're in a dreamy kind of mood. It's not exactly the kind of state you need to be in to make changes in your life, but they just might happen anyway -- especially if others see you indulging in your favorite pastime.
● Love: Someone you might not exactly expect to be a source of good advice could offer a very interesting perspective when it comes to a romantic situation. Even if you don't agree with them, you can learn from them.
● General: Before you tell a loved one -- or a stranger, for that matter -- how you feel about them, you might want to consider how they might react to the news. Although it may seem like a good idea at the time, an emotional outpouring might not elicit the response or reaction you thought it would. Everyone doesn't deal with their emotions as well or as easily as you do. In matters of love and work, it's important to proceed with caution. You really can't count on what you consider a 'typical' response from anyone right now.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Working overtime can lead to frustration, so don't put in the extra hours today unless it's absolutely necessary. Whatever you're doing can probably wait until you're back on the clock come Monday morning.
● Finances: Whether you're daydreaming or doing some serious philosophizing, using your mind is an excellent way to spend the day. You can get back in tune with others later; for now, block them all out and gaze inward.
● Love: You may think that what you're saying (verbally or with body language) is clear as a bell, but a certain someone just might not be getting your message. Perhaps it's time to be a little more obvious?
● General: Set aside your own needs to listen to what the other person has in mind for a change. Don't let your pride ruin a perfectly good relationship. Insisting on nursing your ego may come between you and someone who is close to your heart, and this is a good time to put an end to that kind of destructive behavior. And who knows -- you might actually begin to like the give-and-take relationship that is beginning to develop. Never say never.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Keep your eyes open and your ear to the ground. Today presents a great chance to research your industry, particularly when it comes to job leads and advancement opportunities. Make a few calls -- you'll find some interesting possibilities out there.
● Finances: Try not to do any spending today. Unless it's a daily necessity, you need to do your research before deciding whether or not to buy, and you just don't have that kind of time. Keep your wallet under wraps.
● Love: Don't let that ego get in the way of moving your love life forward. Sure, making an overture means you're vulnerable, but with the right attitude, it feels less risky and more fun. Look to (at least) get a friend out of it.
● General: Try not to be so afraid of doing something extraordinary, especially if you're leery of how your behavior might look from someone else's point of view. The only person whose opinion you should be worrying about is your own. If you've been resisting change for a long time, this is your day finally to let your guard down and embrace it. If you don't exactly know where to begin, start by taking someone else's suggestion for doing an ordinary task a different way. Once you open yourself up to new possibilities, the opportunities you will encounter are endless.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You're at the top of your game and your communications skills are in fine form, so don't waste any opportunities to schmooze today. Take note of any new contacts and dig through your business cards -- you never know when they could come in handy.
● Finances: You've paid your dues and your progress is being measured not in money but in the lessons you've learned. Don't worry, you can put them to good use getting ahead financially later; for now, appreciate that you no longer judge others harshly.
● Love: The stars favor making an overture right about now -- particularly if you get creative about it. Find a common interest or a just plain weird event, and ask a certain someone to join you. You'll have lots to discuss.
● General: Taking the time to connect with other people is worth your efforts -- and the rewards for being of service are priceless. You have a special understanding of the way people's minds work as well as a sense of compassion for those who are less fortunate than you. You have a knack for coming to the rescue of the people who think no one understands them -- which makes you seem like the light at the end of the tunnel or the shelter from the storm for your friends and family, even strangers.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Work will go better today if you spread it among others -- think teamwork! You shouldn't have to shoulder this entire project alone so make it a joint effort with other colleagues. Sweeten the deal by offering to share the credit.
● Finances: You have too much going on to sit still for even a moment, much less a day. You'll have time to count your progress later. For now, make the most of this time of intense energy and activity while it lasts.
● Love: Kiss that little case of the blues goodbye -- it's time to start loving life, and it'll be loving you right back if the stars have anything to say about it. Bonus: All things romance-related are favored now.
● General: Elderly relatives like to share their wisdom with you when they get the chance, but you aren't in the habit of listening up. You have a hard time relating to people who are older and wiser than you are. Take a minute out of your busy day to sit and talk with someone from a different generation. What starts out as a boring story you've heard many times before could actually turn out to be quite a good lesson -- but you have to be willing to pay attention to benefit from it.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Watch out for interlopers today, because someone is homing in on your territory. Find a direct but civil way to let them know it's not okay to take advantage of your efforts. Why should they get any of the glory if they haven't worked for it?
● Finances: Something unexpected can knock you for a loop -- or set you straight. Regaining your footing just may be one of your hidden talents. You'll end up surer of yourself once you get shaken up a bit.
● Love: Plans and communication are both favored during the day, so parlay that good energy into your romantic and social life. What you initiate now is likely to be welcomed with open arms, so cook up a party or a hot date.
● General: The more you try to get other people to conform to your own point of view, the more frustrating your day will become. Since you'll probably be dealing with a variety of people who have different tastes, opinions and personality types throughout the day, your best strategy is to keep as much of an open mind as humanly possible. If you usually sit in the back of the room for a class or meetings, try moving to the middle or even the front row. Everything you can do to get a different perspective of your daily activities is worth the effort.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: If you're not sure how your performance holds up, ask for feedback. Your coworkers will be more than happy to provide it. Chances are, their opinions will closely reflect how management sees you. But don't hesitate to ask your supervisor as well.
● Finances: When you misplace things, it's as if you left them on another planet. Going back over your tracks never seems to help. So when money falls between the cracks, don't expect to find it. Make sure it doesn't happen instead.
● Love: You're calling it like you see it even more than usual now. Some people might find it a bit forward or a bit abrupt, but (particularly in the realm of romance) it's one sure way to get things in motion.
● General: If you want things done correctly, sometimes it's just better to do them yourself instead of relying on secondary sources for help. This is a good time to plan for the future, but you might not be able to solidify all of your plans just yet. It's a good idea to leave some room open for negotiation anyway, especially where your financial situation is concerned. Find out all you can before you actually make the big move you're contemplating, but make sure you check your sources.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: The more information, the better, especially when it can help you gain an edge over your competitors. A coworker's advice was meant to be helpful, not condescending, so you might as well take it that way. Remember, you don't know everything about everything.
● Finances: You're feeling good. Wanting to channel that into something is understandable, but sometimes the most valuable thing is to simply experience it for what it is. It will come out in the form of creativity anyway.
● Love: Your many talents and all your best qualities are shined up by the stars now, giving you an extra swing in your step and a distinct advantage when it comes to the realm of romance. Use your powers wisely!
● General: Great things can happen now, especially since you have more than your share of energy, so surround yourself with other people who share your drive. Something will inspire you enough to take action. Instead of sitting around contemplating your next move, you're suddenly ready to take the first step. You're smart enough to accomplish whatever you want to on your own, but two heads are certainly better than one at the moment. Look for a new collaboration to yield some very interesting -- and successful -- results.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Ultimately, you have little control over things, so when plans fall apart today, don't lose your cool. This is only a minor setback, not a catastrophe. Try to treat it that way and you'll breathe a lot easier.
● Finances: You think you deserve it all and maybe you do, but your bank account has the final say when it comes to what you can actually afford. Your credit cards are simply your yes-men -- ignore them.
● Love: If you've been feeling held back in the love department by forces beyond your control, you can change all that right now. The stars are sending can-do energy, excitement, and a fresh perspective your way. Grab hold!
● General: If you want to get something done, make sure you surround yourself with pros. Try to take any constructive criticism you receive as just that -- constructive. It's the other person's job to be an expert in their field. With proper instruction, you'll get the hang of it in no time -- and on your next attempt, you'll be able to do it entirely on your own.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Take care of the routine details today. That way, all that minutiae will be handled, and you won't have to deal with it later when you'll have bigger things to worry about. You need to focus on the small stuff before you can tackle the big tasks.
● Finances: You need to be your own boss and your own assistant today. When you need a leg-up, there's no one to help you but -- you guessed it -- you. It's harder than having help but the pay offs are far greater.
● Love: Something important is probably taking up most of your attention during the day, but this evening brings some interesting romantic energy. What's important now is that you actively welcome change in all its mysterious forms.
