You're anxious to seize the moment. You can plan your every move another day, but right now, you're into doing things in a much more spontaneous, lively way. Take a road you've never been down before or talk to someone you've only seen in passing. Great things can come from chance meetings, so it would be a shame to pass by any kind of opportunity to interact with someone new. Children can help you bring back your youthful, creative spirit, but you have to be willing to really throw caution to the wind -- and not care too much what other people think -- if you want to feel like a child again.
If you can't be friends with the people you're spending most of your time with, you at least make an attempt to be a little more tolerant. The quirky little things that other people do irritate you to no end right now, but if you're going to complain about everybody's idiosyncrasies, you're in for a very long day. Learn to pick your battles as well as when to let others things pass. Crowded spaces make you much more irritable than usual, so try to avoid public transportation, cramped offices and crowded parties if at all possible.
You have strong opinions on various topics at hand, but you don't take yourself seriously enough to get into any real arguments. Right now, you like chatting with a lot of different types of people and are hearing all kinds of ideas about a wide variety of things. If all talk and no action is beginning to bother you, this is also a good time to think about turning some of your ideas into a reality. If you don't know where to start, ask a close friend or professional acquaintance for their advice. Move now, before someone else beats you to the punch!
The Crab is in the mood to do some outrageous spending, and there really isn't anything holding you back. You've shopped around for bargains enough in your lifetime, and this is the time to buy something that you really want without worrying about how much it costs. Try not to think of your purchase as indulgent or frivolous, Cancer. You've worked hard to earn the money you presently have, so why not spend it on yourself? If a close friend or family member is telling you not to splurge, it might be due to ulterior motives -- is it because they want the same item you have your eye on, only they don't have the cash to buy?!
Leo radiates warmth and enthusiasm. You put smiles on the faces of people you've known for years as well as those who you're just meeting for the first time, and your outgoing personality can't help but be contagious. You know that the secret to being happy is to give what you want to receive, and you aren't afraid to put this wonderful theory into practice. The more positive things you do for others, the more you get in return. Or, as the Beatles sang, 'The love you take is equal to the love you make.' Not that you're doing any of this for the attention it brings you, of course, but you're never one to shy away from a few well-deserved rounds of applause!
You're sick and tired of everyone telling you what to do, but there's no escape from overbearing people who say they have your best interests at heart. If you can manage to take the day off from work or separate yourself from your family just this once, being along is a great way for you to unwind. If there's absolutely no way for you to get any alone time, make the best of the situation. If a friend or relative insists on butting into your personal business, nod and mutter the occasional 'uh-huh,' but feel free to let your mind wander to a more pleasant place -- preferably one where you can get a little peace and quiet.
Your leadership skills are in top form, making you a natural in situations that call for you to take the initiative. It might be hard for your friends or coworkers to get used to you being in a dominant role, but it shouldn't take long for them to realize that you are a fair and proactive leader. When it comes to solving problems, don't be afraid to get creative. Following the letter of the law may have its advantages, but the more eager you are to think outside the box, the sooner you'll be able to come up with solutions that work for everyone involved.
Most of your attention is focused on your professional life right now. You may be having problems with your boss, a coworker or a client, but whatever the matter is, it won't be solved in a facile manner. Your career can be quite stressful right now, but that doesn't mean that there isn't a light at the end of the tunnel. Keep your head down and don't cause too much of a scene. Work quietly on a solution without making your grievances public or asking too many questions. When your reputation is on the line, you'll do just about whatever it takes to restore or maintain your good name, but your efforts rarely include divulging your secrets.
In a world where there is a lot of injustice and silent toleration of it, your honesty is quite refreshing. The Archer makes sure that everyone is treated as equals, and you don't have anything unpleasant to say about any of your fellow human beings. You get a big dose of optimism from the Stars, which helps you look at the world in a completely positive light. Try to share some of your enthusiasm with your friends, relatives and neighbors, Sagittarius. One good deed can totally change someone else's outlook, and it makes you feel good to be able to help other people feel as good as you do.
Don't expect everything to go exactly as you hoped it would, Capricorn. You may encounter some difficulties that you couldn't have predicted, but that doesn't mean that you won't be able to overcome the obstacles that you find in your way. Be careful when sharing resources, especially where your personal life or career are concerned. Everyone has their own agenda right now, and you can't be sure that what you say in confidence will remain that way. Take care of your problems by yourself, and on your own time, as much as possible.
If you're wondering what's stopping you from trying something new, the answer is: Nothing. In fact, this is a great day to experiment with the unknown, Aquarius. Act on impulse and don't let anyone discourage you from following your heart. Other people may have their own ideas about what you should be doing, but you aren't under any obligation to listen to their advice. If something is urging you to go one way, there's no sense in going the other. If you want to experience something really great, give up your inhibitions and just say yes to whatever life has to offer.
Spreading gossip is tempting, but you're much better off minding your own business. Before you open up your mouth to talk about what your neighbor or friend has been up to, consider how you'd feel if you found out they had been talking about you behind your back. Stating the facts is one thing, but there really is no excuse for repeating blatant lies or questionable rumors. If you live or work in close quarters, you might get the chance to listen in on a private conversation, but it's in your best interest to distract yourself rather than eavesdrop.
