RAM (March 21-April 19). You will expand your circle of influence. You will be particularly charismatic in a relaxed setting. Your manner is informal; you will shine in this mode. People feel comfortable around you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Part of conveying your interests is protecting them. You are a warrior with a keen sense of when to defend, attack, or retreat. Stay flexible and alert. Keep your options open.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will focus on one thing until it is resolved. It’s a bit like your mind is a TV show and you don’t want to change channels until the end credits.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Developing a plan with someone and executing it strengthens the relationship, but not as much as the casual moments between two times when we do nothing together. It’s how you are when your guard is down that matters most.
LEO (July 23-August 22). Your hard work makes life exciting. You wouldn’t want to run at this intensity all the time, but it works today. Better to overindulge in moderation than overindulgence.
VIRGIN (August 23-September 22). You’re willing to take other people’s feelings seriously if necessary, but you’re in no mood to take yourself seriously. You walk through tasks that were previously difficult because you have improved your thoughts on the subject.
BALANCE (Sep 23-Oct 23). You are full of ideas, many of them are good, only one of them is possible at a time. Beware of adding new projects today, as they will take over unexpectedly. First, finish what you were already working on.
SCORPIO (24 Oct-21 Nov). You think you’re right, and you probably are. For now, keeping this to yourself will give you more options. You will be able to observe the situation while others are unattended.
SAGITTARIUS (22 Nov-21 Dec). Resources become available to you. You’ve only just scratched the surface of what you can do. Keep on going. You can go further than you ever dreamed.
CAPRICORN (22 Dec-19 Jan). Our solar system is made up mostly of empty space, but today you still don’t have enough of it. Your alone time is precious and when you have it you will use it well, maybe doing nothing at all, a pretty worthy pursuit.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18). Giving is tricky. There’s a time when it’s not cool or counterproductive to give too much. Make sure you get an accurate reading of the situation. Take inspiration from those who are more established there.
PISCES (February 19-March 20). Simple gestures are effective, especially when it comes to love and romance. Less is more. Talking too much can diminish what you’ve already accomplished with an intentional moment of eye contact.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (February 2). Here is a bunch of cosmic gifts. Make space by getting rid of something – for example, your hold on an idea of the future. Open your mind to options, then drop in a nice February surprise. Spring sees the fulfillment of your professional life with the mastery of a trade. Summer is synonymous with love. Cancer and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 1, 44, 49 and 17.
