Family issues dominate the majority of your time. Instead of being defensive or evasive, try to be as helpful as possible. You didn't choose your family like you did your friends, but you still have a certain amount of responsibility when it comes to their well-being. Take responsibility for your mistakes, admit when you're wrong and accept any apologies headed your way. This is your chance to make things right between you and an estranged relative, and you may not be able to forgive yourself if you let this opportunity slip through your fingers. Taking the first step down the path of reconciliation isn't as difficult as you think it will be, Aries.
What do you see when you look around your home, Taurus? If you don't like the paint color that's on the walls, the decorative accessories or the major pieces of furniture, this is the time to make some changes. Beauty is an important element in the lives of most Bulls, so if anything is out of place, you aren't happy. If you're interested in improving the flow of your room or want to change the placement of certain objects, consult a professional or read a book about feng shui. You don't have to be an expert in interior design to know what works and what doesn't, but sometimes it helps to have a second opinion.
You have a firm grip on all of your things and you don't want to let any of them go. What is causing you to be so possessive? Chances are that there is plenty of everything to go around. Loosen your stronghold and think about sharing what you have with the other people in your life. And try not to keep such close tabs on trivial things, like whose food is whose or who bought the last round of drinks. Sometimes the more you give, the more you get in return. And besides, it might be nice to be known as the generous one.
If you know what you want, don't be afraid to go after it. You're used to staying in the background and watching everyone else's dreams come true, but now it's your turn. The Stars are on your side, which should provide you with the assertiveness you need to go after the things that you find important. Use your intuition if you get stuck about which way to go next. Your inner voice is shouting directions to you, but you have to be willing to listen in order to benefit from it. Although others may offer you their assistance, there's a certain amount of satisfaction that comes with the knowledge that you're doing this on your own.
You might be feeling surprisingly sensitive right now, which means that you could get your feelings hurt pretty easily. Try to take other people's comments with a grain of salt, or at least don't let them know that what they've said is bothering you. Some people might try to get a rise out of you if they know that you're prone to taking things a little too seriously, which can only make things worse. Wear a tough exterior and only let the people closest to you know that you're hurting inside. You can take great pride in the way you're conducting yourself, Leo.
Rely on your best friend for support if you need it. You have strong shoulders and can handle most situations, but it's nice to know you have backup just in case. Spending time with other people -- preferably a big group of your closest friends or family members -- is a good way to pass the time, and you're the perfect host or hostess. You're particularly good at taking care of party-related arrangements, so this is a good time to throw an impromptu gala. You have a knack for perfecting everything right down to the smallest detail, so the get-together is sure to be a smashing success.
Things may not be progressing at the rate you'd like them to, but at least you're making some headway. It might be tempting to give up on projects that have been a long time in the making, but you're closer to completion that you think you are. Buckle down and really focus on what you have to do, Libra. The more you put off the tedious, more painstaking steps of the process, the longer it will be until you complete it and can finally wash your hands of the whole thing. Your friends and coworkers may be willing to give you a hand, but you should only accept their help as a last resort.
You're the intellectual of the group, the person who asks the relevant questions and has all the right answers. Of course, no one really knows if you're just good at guessing or if you really know what you're talking about, but that's your little secret to keep. Outward appearances are important to you right now, and the fact that you're coming across as an intellectual wins you high marks with the crowd you want to spend time with at the moment. Just make sure you don't use big words that you don't know the meaning of, Scorpio. Mispronunciation and misuse of certain words can blow your cover.
You aren't in the same mood as all of your friends, but that doesn't mean you can't hang out together. Your differences complement each other right now, which makes it interesting for you to spend time with diverse groups of people. If someone expresses an idea or opinion that you don't understand or agree with, don't hesitate to question it. You can learn a lot by discussing different topics with a lot of different people and they can learn a lot from you as well. This is a great time to brainstorm, collaborate and form new partnerships with people who really have something interesting to say.
Changes are on the way for you, so be open to any and all possibilities that enter your life. You may have to deal with some old issues to make room for new opportunities, but taking care of old business shouldn't be too difficult. There is possibly one person who stands in your way right now -- or one person who can be of great assistance. It's up to you to figure out who is on your team and who isn't, but when you look at all the facts, the answer is obvious. When other people are quick to overreact, you have to be voice of reason.
You may not feel your best right now, but that doesn't give you a good enough excuse to sit this one out. The events that are to take place are too important for you to miss, so you have to find a way to deal with whatever is bothering you and move on. Try not to let your emotions rule the rest of your body, Aquarius. The minute you start feeling sorry for yourself, you may as well admit defeat. You have enough inner strength to get through these circumstances, but you may not know it yet. Do whatever it takes to summon the courage you need to get past this so you can claim your next victory.
Although you don't usually seek out chances to be the center of attention, right now the stage is a perfectly comfortable place for you to be. You love performing of any kind, and if you don't have the opportunity to perform professionally, you're more than happy to put on a show for your friends and family. If you have a real talent for -- or an interest in -- the dramatic arts, this is a great time to pursue a career in the theater, movies or even TV. Go to open auditions or sign up for acting classes to further your craft. If you don't have the desire to be a professional actor, you might want to consider doing something else that is art-related, perhaps in the design or music industry.
