New situations and last-minute decisions create problems for the usually together Aries. You have a tough time dealing with anything that isn't penciled into your appointment book, and unfortunately, those types of events will probably occur more times than not throughout the day. Do your best to roll with the waves, even when you don't feel very comfortable doing so. It might help to have someone to lean on -- a close friend or coworker who you trust -- just in case you decide that you really can't hack it on your own.
You get by with a little -- or maybe even a lot -- of help from your friends. You're usually plenty competent and able to handle whatever life throws your way, but right now you're much more confident when you get a second opinion that backs you up. You have your fair share of pride, but there's nothing wrong with sharing your problems with the people who care about you. They won't make light of whatever is bothering you, Taurus, and you should give them the chance to prove their trustworthiness to you.
If a misunderstanding occurs at work or at home, make an attempt to clear things up immediately. The longer you wait to straighten out the situation, the more severe it could become. If you're the one responsible for putting your foot in your mouth, the best thing you can do is apologize and move on. Dwelling on what happened will only make matters worse, and the more you talk, the more you run the risk of saying something inappropriate. Although you usually have excellent communication skills, some things are just better left unsaid at the moment.
Take every opportunity that comes your way to learn something new. Your best bet is learning a new skill or craft from someone who already knows what they're doing, but if you can't find a professional who's willing to share their knowledge with you, don't hesitate to hone your skills on your own -- or better yet, get a group of friends together who are interested in learning the same skill, and then try it as a group. What you make or do doesn't have to be perfect, but you get an A from the Universe every time you make an honest effort.
Your view is obscured by something that may or may not be easily removed. If you can't see out of the windshield, and you can't clean off the dirt, you know better than to attempt to drive, right, Leo? There's nothing wrong with staying put for a while anyway, especially if you have loose ends to tie up in the immediate vicinity. Your creativity can be a big help when you're attempting to solve one of your problems, but try not to be overemotional when dealing with a friend or sibling. Try to keep in mind that some things -- especially personality-related conflicts -- can't be cleared up in one sitting.
A task you insisted you could handle is turning out to be way, way more complicated and confusing than you could have ever imagined. If it's too late to back out of your commitment, you might want to consider asking for help. It might be hard to swallow your pride and admit that maybe you bit off more than you could chew, but at times like these, you have little alternative. Although it's tempting to run away from your problems and hide, you know deep down that this particular one is too important not to at least attempt to resolve, Virgo.
So what if everything doesn't go exactly how you hoped or planned it would? If you allow yourself to take a more flexible approach to your day than you usually do, you'll be a much happier person, Libra. You can expect greater delays when you're relying on someone else to come through for you than if you were doing it yourself, but there really isn't anything you can do to rush them, so try to be patient. It would be nice if the whole world revolved around your schedule, but you should know by now that that's rarely the case.
It's Scorpio's turn to have some fun. Of course, your idea of a good time might not match with anyone else's, but you aren't really that worried about what other people think anyway. Your creative side wants to come out and play, but if you're having a hard time getting started, it might be necessary to look for inspiration. Children make the best muses for you at the moment, and you can really benefit by watching their playful spirits and carefree attitudes. Interacting with someone who is young at heart has its advantages, but it's probably much less limiting to watch them from afar.
Instead of zoning off and thinking of other things while someone is trying to tell a story that's important to them, focus on their words and really listen to what they're saying. You have the opportunity to learn a lot from others today, and you'd be foolish not to take full advantage of the situation. Even if you've heard your friend, spouse or coworker tell the same tale a million times, you're bound to get a little something more out of it right now -- especially if you can find a way to read between the lines and decipher the metaphors.
While other people say no to pleas for help and back away from their responsibilities, you're ready to accept whatever you have to do in order to be of service. You're perhaps best at helping other people at the moment, which makes you a good role model and leader. You don't let your power go to your head, which makes it easy for the people who work for you to tell you their problems -- which, in turn, makes your job just a little bit easier. You might have to make some tough decisions along the way, but at least you can go to sleep tonight knowing that you were fair.
You've been working hard, and you deserve some time off. Your humanitarian efforts have been quite noble in the recent past, but you have a new project that needs your full attention right now -- and that project is you. If you've been neglecting yourself in any way lately, this is your chance to make up for lost time. Indulge a little by buying something expensive from your wish list, or visit a spa for a full body massage or healing mineral bath soak. Ideally you should turn off your cell phone, pager and whatever other communication device you usually keep with you, but if you can't disconnect completely, try to relax uninterrupted for at least an hour.
You aren't exactly used to sticking your neck out in order to try something new, but this is a new day and a fresh chance to break out of the mold that everyone -- including yourself at times -- thinks you fit into. Surprise a friend or relative with an idea for an exotic vacation, or plan to go somewhere new entirely on your own. This is actually an opportunity to rediscover yourself, so the further you get from your comfort zone, the better. Nothing is too far out for you to consider, and you can't really go too far in order to prove that you're a different person, if only for a day.
