Today’s Horoscope: Wednesday, February 18, 2009
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Did you know that there are several types of plastic that need to be recycled and that not all of them can be placed in the recycling bin? You are generally of the mind-set that anything that can increase the public good can help relieve the distress of others, but today you are focused on yourself. Take time to exchange information and ideas with others today. You may just learn something new.

Pisces February 19 – March 20
This is definitely the time to home in on the fact that people can be hurt by what you say. Yes, it’s hard to deal with all the political correctness today, but please try. The last thing you want to do is end up like Prince Harry and his careless yet racially-charged remarks. Social influence is based on trust that you will do the right thing. Don’t let your mouth run its own motor today. Use your brain and think first.
Try: making snowballs
Aries March 21 – April 19
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued its annual report, and this year the results were surprising. Nearly 150,000 incidents per year are caused by doors closing on fingers. Mistakes can happen, especially when you rush through things. Today, try to pay attention to the little things in life. By being mindful of what you do, you can save yourself a lot of grief later on. This is an excellent time to slow down and smell the roses.
Try: ignoring the dirty dishes
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Should you pay for what you consume? Questions abound today, and you will be the center of the focus. One of the issues will be why you are so stubborn. You could attribute it to the fact that you are a bull; however, those waiting for answers won’t take that as an excuse. Once you sink your teeth into something, it’s hard for you to let it go.
Try: chewing a new gum
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Significant changes will take place with your partner today. His or her actions will affect you in subtle ways. Perhaps he’s been offered a new job (think: Nick Cannon replacing Jerry Springer on the show America’s Got Talent.) or maybe this person wants to address relationship changes. Whatever the case may be, you are as prepared as ever for the outcome.
Try: giving up white sugar
Cancer June 22 – July 22
Relationships take more than hope to make them work. As you know by now, they require that two people spend time learning as much as there is to know about each other. But no matter how much you think you know, there are always surprises (case in point: Rihanna and Chris Brown), and they’re not always good. One of two things will happen today when you see your partner’s true colors: You will either decide to work it out or walk away. Either choice you take will affect your future.
Try: staying away from artificial sweeteners
Leo July 23 – August 22
Nothing stops you from getting what you want. In fact, your friends often smile in amazement at how effortlessly things happen for you. Similar to MIA, who performed at the Grammys even though her baby was due that night, you have the ability to alter your reality. Take heed, as a reality check is due for you. Things will turn out, but you will discover that not everything you touch will turn to gold.
Try: holding your breath for 30 seconds
Virgo August 23 – September 22
For weeks now, you have thought that if you could just come up with a better way of doing things, your work life would be that much smoother. The problem is you rarely take time to notice your coworkers and what they are working on. Today, instead of burying yourself in a pile of papers and endless phone calls, look around and find out if someone else can help you in your quest. It may just turn out that a merger of two minds is better than one.
Try: wearing sexy underwear
Libra September 23 – October 22
It’s common today to use passwords to keep prying eyes away from your computer programs. In fact, you probably haven’t changed yours in quite some time. In the online virtual world, several relationships have ended because of damaging information on the computer, so take a moment and ask yourself if it’s worth it. Are you willing to lose a relationship over a fantasy life? If you are, keep your passwords the same – and if you aren’t, perhaps you should be a little more careful.
Try: taking pole-dancing classes
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Reese Witherspoon’s kids have reported that their mom can sometimes be embarrassing. It’s nice to know that children of stars feel the same way that other children do when it comes to parents. Social relationships are on the upswing today. Like Reese, you may find yourself watching your actions a little bit more closely in hopes that you don’t commit a faux pas during the day.
Try: blowing bubbles
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Today, you will experience an a-ha moment, where everything becomes clearer and you wonder why you never thought of something yourself. Of course, you always knew the answer, but you weren’t willing to take the time to think of a solution. It’s like blowing your nose and then finding out that you should only blow one side first (researchers announced that you should blow only one nostril at a time to cut down on infections). Take that moment and try to improve on it; you just may have a multimillion-dollar idea lurking in the recesses of your mind.
Try: researching something new
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
There is something to be said for following the universe’s directives: What you put out, you receive in abundance. Think about the areas in the world that are suffering from drought and how, for years, people didn’t worry about wasting water. It’s a shame when all you had to do was respect the earth. Today, you will get the chance to respect the earth, so remember that what you put out, you will get back in spades.
Try: hopping like a bunny
