Full steam ahead! Mars arrives in Aries today – the sign it rules and where this warrior planet feels most at home. Expect to feel more assertive, positive and enthusiastic! Each sign will feel a strong drive in a particular area of life, but for the Fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, this is a long-awaited boost of energy that makes them feel themselves again. Looking ahead, Tuesday’s full of potential, with both the Sun and Mercury in sextile aspect to Uranus.
Aries (March 20th – April 19th)
It’s a good day for tying up loose ends at home or at work. This might mean anything from cleaning that pile of dirty dishes to sewing the buttons back onto your favorite shirt, or reviewing a professional project for errors. It’s important to pay attention to detail now, no matter how much you’d prefer simply to charge ahead on instinct. You’ll be glad later that you took the slow, thoughtful approach.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
You’re calm, self-assured and in your element today. A practical approach is best for almost any problem or endeavor that comes up, and practicality is one of your many strengths. Stamina is another, and focus. Employ all of these now to get a job done and done right. At the end of the day, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you dotted every I, crossed every T, and did your very best.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
You’re drawn to systems and routines today. Working through a problem or following an established process actually brings you a sense of satisfaction. That’s a good thing, especially if you’re stuck doing mundane tasks like running errands. But try not to let the routine itself eclipse the purpose for following it — the final outcome. Don’t be afraid to take shortcuts, within reason, of course. Use your ingenuity to streamline the process.
Cancer (June 21st – July 21st)
It’s a good day to attend to the small stuff — cleaning, exercising and all the other details that keep your life moving forward in a healthy, organized way. Eating well today makes you feel good physically. Applying yourself to your work and crossing everything off your task list makes you feel good mentally. Isn’t it nice to take care of business in such a straightforward, no-nonsense way?
Leo (July 22nd – August 21st)
Your practical side kicks in today. You’re a passionate person, but now you’re okay with setting your feelings aside in favor of getting something accomplished. If you’re working on a project right now, expect to make a lot of positive headway. Just do your best to avoid getting caught up in details. That can slow your progress. Sometimes being practical means knowing when to say enough is enough, and move on.
Virgo (August 22nd – September 21st)
Your routine is comforting today. You like knowing the rules of any system, and following the steps of any plan. In fact, this is a great time to make concrete objectives for the next month of your life. Set a goal, or more than one. Take notes about the resources you’ll need to have or the steps you’ll need to take to reach it. It’s so much easier to follow your course once it’s determined.
Libra (September 22nd – October 22nd)
Efficiency and economy matter today. Conserve your resources, including time, energy and money. If you’ve spent too much money lately, start now to put a savings plan into effect. And if you haven’t spent enough time on work or organization, do so today. Get things in order at home or at the office. Throw out anything that isn’t useful, including possessions, habits and systems. Clear the decks for a more organized life!
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Today, a practical outlook is best in almost any situation. The bottom line matters now, whether that refers to your finances or simply the crux of an issue. Cutting out the excess, either literally or figuratively, enables you to get down to what’s really important. Take advantage of this opportunity. It’s a great day for anything from launching a new, healthy diet to balancing your checkbook, and all sorts of things in between.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 20th)
You might prefer to have fun today, but duty calls. You have a million and one things on your task list, and you’d rather bury your head in the sand than get started on it! But your responsibilities will still be waiting for you once you reemerge, so just get started. Take a simple, practical approach: Keep putting one foot in front of the other until you get where you’re trying to go.
Capricorn (December 21st – January 18th)
Use today’s grounded, exacting energy to manage the smaller details of your life. It’s a great day to file documents, pay bills, run errands — anything that requires patience and attention to detail. You don’t mind devoting this kind of focus to the small stuff. It’s actually kind of fun. And it brings you a sense of accomplishment, when you realize how much you’ve achieved in a short space of time.
Aquarius (January 19th – February 17th)
You’re capable today of great focus. This comes in handy whether you’re at the office or at home. Any project you’re working on benefits from careful, close attention. Do your best not to get caught up in minor details, however. Attention to detail is very important at the moment, but not when it impedes progress. Efficiency is important, too — and economy of effort! After all, wasted time and energy can never be regained.
Pisces (February 18th – March 19th)
You’re a feeling person by nature, which is why today’s influence could get under your skin. You may sense an unwelcome distance between yourself and other people. If you try to reach out to someone on a feeling level, you may be met with cool logic instead of warm emotion. If so, don’t let this worry you. For now, most folks are focused on taking care of business. Use this opportunity to do the same.
