March 21-April 19

You might feel obligated to focus on connecting with someone close to you today. While the opportunity you’re looking at probably sounds fun, maybe your heart’s not entirely in it. If you’re truly drawn to some quiet time alone, being honest at least with yourself can help you determine your next steps. That said, the person you’re planning to spend time with could also be interested in switching gears to a mellower activity, so consider asking them to join you!



April 20-May 20

Working to beautify your home may be rewarding for you at present. However, getting social media involved in the equation right away could lead to complications. Before you share photos of your efforts, you might want to consider what reaction you’re looking for. If you don’t think anyone else can really improve upon the pride you deservedly feel, what’s the point in broadcasting your work? Sink into what you’ve done, and tune in to whether any additional changes are needed.


May 21-June 20

Talking to the people around you can be fun today. When you get everyone excited about a brainstorm of yours, though, they might surprise you by asking for the next steps. Perhaps you weren’t expecting that level of scrutiny -- maybe you secretly hoped someone else would do the hard part. You may need to decide whether this idea is truly important enough to pursue further. If it is, go after it full-force -- it could provide the sense of purpose you’ve been looking for!


June 21-July 22

Getting away from it all may be appealing at the moment. If the people you share space with are irritating you, it’s normal to fantasize about going on a good, long vacation to give yourself a break. Perhaps you could actually afford something like this, but is it the right course? A getaway isn’t the only way you can use your resources to make your life better. Look at all the options for creating comfort and peace, including those that are closer to home.


July 23-August 22

Talking about yourself could be hard to resist today. In the heat of the moment, you might wind up revealing more than you intended to regarding a personal matter. With the right audience, maybe this is exactly what’s necessary to take your relationship to the next level. Even so, changing the boundaries of your connection can be a challenging adjustment. Try to stay conscious of what you’re sharing and what you want the other person to do with that information.



August 23-September 22

Idealizing someone you admire can relieve tension for you now. When your focus is on them, you might have less time on your hands to fret over your own insecurities. However, you probably have more going for you than you think you do. Perhaps you find it easier to see your own good qualities in the other person because you’re not ready to embrace them in yourself. Enjoy the experience, but look for a way to bring balance to the dynamic going forward.


September 23-October 22

Attention from your peers feels mighty nice at the moment. The hard part could be deciding how far you’re willing to go to keep your place in the spotlight indefinitely. You might come to realize it’s a lot of work to perform to the standards that impress others -- and perhaps the goalposts seem to move further away from you as you put in more effort. At the end of the day, you have to please yourself, so know your limits.


October 23-November 21

Finding your place in the world could come with some costs now. As you maneuver to gain recognition and approval, you might be a little disgusted with the amount of secrecy and conniving that seems to be necessary. The frustration may nudge you to try expressing yourself more directly. Not having a clear sense of what you hope to communicate can backfire on you, though. Focus on the specific thing that bothers you about the process, and make an effort to address that.



November 22-December 21

Your friends may be egging you on to do something adventurous. Even if you like the idea, all the stimulation could leave you worn out. If you feel the urge to head home and rest for a while, it’s better to be realistic about your needs than to push yourself to a point of exhaustion. Knowing your limits and expressing them confidently will cause less trouble than attempting to subtly manipulate events in your favor. Speak up and protect your energy!


December 22-January 19

Moving toward your goals may require changes to a financial arrangement. There’s probably no way to get the outcome you need without having a candid conversation. Could this cause a little tension? Of course. Although you might prefer to soften parts of the story to avoid hurting the other person’s feelings, any lack of clarity now is likely to lead to more trouble later. Tell the truth as honestly as you can, even if it doesn’t make you popular in the moment.


January 20-February 18

You could hold yourself to high standards in a close relationship now. According to your belief system, you might be obligated to help the other person financially. However, trying to suppress your own needs for the sake of harmony can make you secretly resentful. You’re probably capable of finding a more sustainable answer if you put your mind to it! Instead of giving in to every request immediately so you won’t have to feel the emotional discomfort of conflict, think about the situation logically.



February 19-March 20

You seem to be taking on a lot lately. Doing more than your portion of a shared responsibility could seem like the easiest way to keep the peace now. Perhaps others in your social network are in an emotionally unstable place, and you’re afraid to upset them further. While suppressing your own needs may be the best course in this instance, try to have a realistic idea of when the demand will end. Don’t get locked into a dynamic of this sort long-term!
