Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

You've got big plans when it comes to your future. However, you be feeling limited now which could be putting a damper on your plans. Now's the time to get a financial plan together that can get you where you want to be. Flying by the seat of your pants now won't get you anywhere.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

You know, when it comes to relationships there's this saying that if you have to ask where a relationship is going it probably isn't going anywhere you want it to go. Not that you shouldn't communicate with the one you're with but sometimes common sense has to prevail.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

You could be ready to give your all to a relationship now but you may have to consider whether the reward is worth the risk. Not that you should be afraid of wanting a deeper connection, but you want to make sure that the relationship in on an equal playing field. If you need to — take things slow and communicate your expectations.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

Romance could sizzle today if you're up for it. Regardless if you're single or not, it's one of those days for enjoying the company of someone you love, or at the very least someone you find cute, as the conversation and energy will be high. Though be careful of letting the past get in the way.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

You might find yourself trying to go in 10 different directions today, especially as your list of things to do grows longer. Though know that there's no need to jump into anything or try to take on everything at once. Do what you can and take frequent breaks in between.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

You might come up with a wonderfull creative idea today, though when it comes to executing this plan, you'll need to sit down and determine if it's worth the time and money it will take to get it off the ground. Take your time on this one. There's no need to rush into anything.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

You may be tempted to act on a financial opportunity today out of a need for more security but before you say yes, you may need to take a moment to think it over. If something about this opportunity feels off, or it doesn't align with your deeper immaterial needs, you may have to pass.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

You may not take yourself as someone who likes routine but you do tend to stick to what you know. However, when it comes to getting what you want now, it won't be enough to just go through the motions doing what's familiar (and halfheartedly I might add). You're being called to focus only on what moves you to the core.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

If you feel like you're not getting what you deserve, especially where your money is concerned, you may need to dig in and fight for it. And no, this doesn't mean forcing something to happen that's not meant to be as much as it means to keeping going in the face of a challenge.
