Wednesday Horoscope


Aries: Peace and calm will be hard to maintain in a group today. There are too many agitators, and they are having way too much fun making waves. You can choose to join in with them, or step into the role of disciplinarian. Follow your mood on this one — if you feel like getting things back on track, then crack the whip. But if time isn't pressing and you feel like taking it easy right now, hop onto the goof-off bandwagon and contribute your own zany ideas.

Taurus: A friend has been chiding you for being too hard on yourself, and they are right. It's time that you realized just what a rock star you are! Beating yourself up over something that happened in the past (that you can't change now) doesn't do anything except hurt your self-esteem. It also keeps you from taking important risks in the future. You've got to be honest with yourself today. You have all the charm, good-looks and smarts that add up to one fantastic person. Pat yourself on the back.

Gemini: Don't opt for convenience today. It's easy, but it's not the best way. Too often, convenience requires you to pay too much, waste too much, or fail to challenge yourself. So if you need to go shopping, seek out the best bargains, not the nearest store. If you are going on a date, think of a creative outing that reflects part of who you are, not just the old dinner-and-a-movie gambit. And if you need to have a difficult conversation with someone, don't do it through email.

Cancer: Someone you work with or are close to socially has made a mess of things, and they don't appear to be in any hurry to clean up what they've done. It's no fun to nag, but you might have to be the bad cop with the today — let them know the negative repercussions are on their head if they don't shape up and fulfill their responsibilities. If you don't, then you could end up being the one who gets blamed. Put yourself first and be firm with them. When it's coming from you, they will listen.

Leo: This is a day to play it safe and keep your cards close to your vest, so listen to your more conservative impulses. Don't offer your time or money to anyone. As much as you would like to be of service to someone, you need to let them fend for themselves right now — it's better for everybody. Helping them out today will only encourage them to come back to you again. You will prevent them from learning how to fend for themselves. You can be a supportive person without being an enabler.

Virgo: In the mood to have a little bit of fun? Of course you are! And guess what? The only thing standing in the way of you having fun is — you! There is no reason you can't start getting out there and mixing it up — and today is as good a time for socializing as any. Your friends are itching to get out there and tear it up too, so find out what is on their mind. Send out an email to your group and start cooking something up. You can be the match that starts a hot night of fun.

Scorpio: One of your friends has been saving some sweet news for you. Today they will finally be able to come clean and let you in on it! Suddenly something they said a few days ago makes sense. The two of you have something to celebrate. Get out your social 'to do' list and take a look at what's next on the list. Act impulsively and do something you've been waiting a long time to do. It's a perfect time to check out that new hot spot or restaurant you've been hearing so much about.

Sagittarius:  In a big meeting or at an event today, make sure that you appeal to people's intellect, not to their emotions. People are likely to get suspicious if you are not talking about facts and only talking about feelings — they could think you're hiding the facts because they are unfavorable. So avoid making too many jokes. Try not to use charm or flirtation to get your point across. You will only end up making yourself look less believable. You might gain a few admirers, but you could lose some respect.

Capricorn: Use whatever free time you have today in order to reconnect with someone from your past, or someone who is living a long ways away. Set aside the right amount of time for a long phone call. Don't call them when you're waiting in line or at the grocery store! Sit down, get comfortable, and give them the kind of time and focus they deserve. You might not think you have any news to share, but as soon as you start talking, the amusing anecdotes will come.

Pisces: Your values are precious to you, but you also have to acknowledge that another person's values are just as important to them. It's usually not an issue unless you two clash — and today you can expect a bit of a conflict to erupt. But whatever you do, you cannot force them to agree with you. If they are going to be in your life, you need to respect them for who they are and let them know that you aren't trying to fix them. Take them for who they are, or not at all.
