◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a great day to talk to others, especially about work-related subjects. However, if you’re dividing an inheritance or sharing something valuable, be careful you don’t give away the farm.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a smooth day dealing with members of the public as well as close friends and partners. Your words are pure honey. This is also great day to woo someone in the truest romantic sense.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Relationships with others at work will go well today. This is also great day for real-estate discussions and purchases for your home or for a family member. Your heightened appreciation for beauty makes you delight in scoring treasures for yourself or others.

◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a great day to entertain at home. Invite the gang over or share your digs with new pals. You might have beautiful solutions regarding new approaches for home repairs. “That looks so much better!” If shopping, you could go overboard but you’ll love it.

◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your money savvy is excellent today. Trust your money-making ideas. Furthermore, you can talk others into jumping on your bandwagon. (That’s why this is a great day to promote, seduce or convince anybody about anything.) “Have some Madeira, my dear?”
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will appreciate all kinds of leisure pursuits or little moments of escape today. In fact, if you can take today off — just do it. Basically, you want to play! You’re also very inclined to tell others how much you care. Sneak away on a short trip in the country.

◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s easy to impress people in authority today, which means this is the perfect time to make your pitch. You will likely get the support and endorsement that you need. However, if you think things are too good to be true, they might be.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Travel somewhere for pleasure today if you can. You’ll enjoy profound discussions or just grokking beautiful places because it’s easy to appreciate everything around you today. Relations with partners and close friends are warm and charming.
