EMPLOYMENT | HOME IMPROVEMENT
Although Mercury is still retrograde and causing confusion with communication and travel, as well as glitches with tech, today still bodes well for connecting with others. If we have any plans or events in the works, a flexible, low-commitment approach can help keep things stress-free. For those of us looking for creative inspiration, it’s an excellent time for brainstorming ideas and coming up with innovative ways to tackle a problem or task. With our eyes simultaneously on the past and the future, we could find ourselves coming up with salient solutions to old issues. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) It’s the perfect time to follow up on a conversation or an agreement with someone if it’s been a while since you’ve heard back. Expect a positive outcome. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) If you want to move forward with a goal or project, some tweaks and improvements are in order. Review your plans and make updates accordingly. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Revisiting a hobby, passion or beloved pastime could prove beneficial for you today. Sometimes you need to go backward to discover how to move ahead. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A discussion with a family member, roommate or property manager could be revisited today. If there was trouble coming to an agreement before, you can come to one now. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) If there’s something you need to put in writing or out onto the web, it would help you to get an editor, a lawyer or a second pair of eyes on your work. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Take some time to go over your finances today. You could uncover a better way to save money or to make more of it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Practise affirming the good things about yourself rather than dwelling on the things that you don’t like. Write down 10 things you love about yourself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You could experience a realization or light-bulb moment that helps you find the clarity you’ve been seeking. Put your thoughts down on paper or journal about it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A long-lost friend or acquaintance could pop up on your radar today. It’s a welcome opportunity to reconnect. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You could get a second chance at a career opportunity or get the green light for an idea shelved or rejected in the past. Work your magic. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Going back to school or getting recertified in your field of choice can help you go far in your personal and professional development. Beef up your skills. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Something you’ve been holding close to the heart comes up for a review. It’s time to have an uncomfortable but necessary discussion. FOR TODAY’S BIRTHDAY You’re astute and witty. You know just what to do to solve a problem. Because you often take an outsidethe-box approach toward achieving your goals, you stay 10 steps ahead of the pack. It’s no surprise you’ve done some pretty groundbreaking things. Although you’re a team player, you also enjoy marching to the beat of your own drum and encourage others to do the same. You inspire people to be themselves because you’re always striving to be your authentic self. This year, expect lessons in self-empowerment, as you’re called to love yourself and be loved unconditionally.
