Your materialist streak is apparent today. A sensualist at heart, you enjoy being surrounded by fine things, purely so you can touch, smell and taste them. You derive real satisfaction from quality items! But remember, ‘well-made’ doesn’t have to mean ‘expensive.’ Be practical enough to avoid spending your last dime on something undeniably but needlessly elegant. Otherwise you might not be able to afford a home for all your gorgeous possessions!
May 21-June 21
You’re used to having emotions that are here, there and everywhere. So today might be a real relief, because your mood evens out. A sense of inner peace envelops you. You might find the slow pace of the day’s events to be a little dull, but put up with it for the sake of your energy level. Life will speed up again soon enough. For now, enjoy this chance to relax.
June 22-July 22
You may find yourself drawn to tradition today. You might cook a family recipe for dinner or find some other way to honour the people who have gone before you. It feels good to connect with the past. And you’ve always had a healthy sense of respect for the people who have gone before you, who fought certain battles so you wouldn’t have to fight them yourself. Honour them today.
July 23-August 22
Today has some positive potential and some challenging potential, too. But it’s easy to tap into the best opportunities: In a word, relax. Any time you feel yourself getting tense over work, in a conversation or in any other situation, do what you can to calm down and loosen up. Getting stubborn won’t get you anywhere now. So breathe deeply, smile, and find a way to cooperate.
August 23-September 22
You’re in your element today. Expect good dreams while you sleep and a feeling of serenity when you wake up. This could be a welcome relief, since your mind usually moves at the speed of light! Enjoy the sensation of calm, well-ordered thoughts. It’s a great day to do some long-term planning. You’re as sensible as ever, plus you’re composed. This helps you view challenges with poise, and work through them efficiently.
September 23-October 22
Your creative streak broadens today. You may find yourself attracted to natural materials and textures. If you’re an artist of any kind, it’s a perfect time to work with raw fibers or other elements of the natural world. It’s also a great day simply to appreciate nature. Head outdoors, or take a few moments to gaze out the window at the setting sun. Appreciating beauty is a creative act in itself!
October 23 â€“ November 22
Today, your need for emotional security is heightened. This may be tied to measurable, tangible things like money, cozy surroundings, or the solid comfort of a loved one’s hug. There’s nothing wrong with working hard to bring in a decent paycheck or enjoying the physical side of love. But if you’re feeling a little insecure, perhaps you should look at the root cause of those emotions. See what’s going on within your heart.
November 23-December 20
Routines are highlighted today. ‘Boring!’ you might say — but there is liberation in routine. You find it when you surrender to the habitual processes of your daily life. Think of it this way: When you’re performing a mundane task you’ve done a million times, like washing the dishes, your mind is allowed to wander far and wide. Some serious creativity can spring from the very tasks you consider most tedious!
December 21-January 19
Hard work comes easily to you today, but don’t spend the whole day at the office. Just because you’re capable of putting in long hours doesn’t mean you should! Find time for some relaxation. Schedule it in, if you have to. Take at least an hour or two to unwind. Hang out with a friend, go for a walk or do something creative. Nature and physical pleasures are especially centring.
January 20-February 18
Relaxation is key today. If you can stay flexible and easygoing, you’re in for an enjoyable time. But it’s all too easy now to get a little tense, especially if you encounter someone whose views differ dramatically from your own. Usually you’re quite open to personal differences — in fact, you champion them. But today, lots of folks need the security of familiar company. That could extend to you.
February 19-March 20
It’s easy today to interact naturally with the world around you. Your physical senses are heightened, which makes tactile pleasures even more sensually appealing than usual. Sleep in or take a nap if you can — purely for the pleasure of luxuriating in soft pillows and clean sheets! Physical movement feels wonderful now, too. Dancing or yoga can centre you in your body and work your muscles while expressing your vivid imagination.
