Today’s Horoscope: Thursday, February 19, 2009
Pisces February 19 – March 20
When life gives you grief, take your cue from Jessica Simpson (at a recent concert, she joked about worrying that her pants would rip) and laugh. It pays to smile at unkindness. If nobody knows that you’re hurt, the hurt will be easier to take. Enthusiasm is an essential part of your success.
Try: creating a new look
Aries March 21 – April 19
Like the actor Sam Shepard (who admitted that he was guilty of drunken driving), you understand that in order to eliminate the bad from your life you first have to be honest with yourself. Routine matters will proceed smoothly and quickly today. Tensions may erupt over something that you have been reluctant to face. Talk it out and, above all, stay honest with yourself.
Try: talking to a plant
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Your mind is whirling right now. Emotional issues that have been percolating for some time are about to come to the surface and create a disruption in your life. It could be something major, like getting kicked off the team (think: Joanna Pacitti being replaced on American Idol for already having a recording contract), or it could be something minor, such as your friends taking you to task over your behavior. The important thing is that you need to be made aware that sometimes you do things for the sake of doing them rather than wanting to do them.
Try: telling a story in 30 words or less
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Why do you continue to wait for results when the answer is right at your fingertips? Everything you know about yourself tells you that the arts are where your true interests lie, yet you continue to become befuddled when things go awry (think: Connecticut Opera closing its doors after 67 years). Your course of action today is to take a day to yourself and try to figure out what exactly makes you happy. If the answer is a change in career, perhaps you could start off small.
Try: giving something away
Cancer June 22 – July 22
Today, you can expect things to flow smoothly, provided that you don’t allow some silly person to disrupt your mood. Rage is the one thing that keeps you from staying sunny. You have been trying to get a handle on it, but sometimes you find yourself seeing red. The thing is, that rage can get out of hand. Just ask Toby Keith, who walked off the stage to confront a fan who allegedly threw a beer onto the stage and then ended up in a barrage of verbal assaults. It’s that type of rage that will get you in trouble.
Try: using a coupon
Leo July 23 – August 22
Finally, justice has been served in the form of a settlement for the three classmates who came up with ConnectU (a site similar to Facebook). Your ability to go straight to the heart of the matter keeps everyone on their toes today. Friends and family know that if you meet any setbacks, you will follow; just sink your toes firmly in the ground.
Try: painting your face
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Before the end of the day, family and friends will be singing your praises. You may not have an opera written about your life (think: Anna Nicole Smith), but your story will be told for years. Careerwise, things are looking up; for now, your job prospects are good and you shouldn’t worry too much about recent cutbacks. Keep up the good work. Let your loved ones know how you really feel about them.
Try: giving something away
Libra September 23 – October 22
Today, you will discover that the world does not revolve around you and your large ego. In fact, there are quite a few changes that are taking place around you that will make you feel as if the world is against you (think: Stimulus plan setting new limits on executive pay) and you may even consider fighting back. Don’t waste your time. Things that were good yesterday may be rotten today.
Try: growing herbs
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
The world knew Gandhi as a peace activist, and one has to wonder how he would feel knowing that his personal effects will be going to the highest bidder. With Venus entering your house this month, you may find yourself saying yes to whatever comes your way. Rather than just going with the flow and accepting things as they are, why not try for change by voicing your opinion on matters? Perhaps you want to praise a worker or even voice your opinion about what’s happening to Gandhi’s goods.
Try: pretending to be a monster
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Glaxo Smith Kline recently announced that they will slash the prices of their medicine in poor countries and share knowledge about potential drugs currently protected under patent laws. This announcement won’t affect you directly, but it should make you realize that charity begins at home. You may think that you are a giving person, but the truth is you spend so much time worrying about tomorrow that you rarely think about your actions today. Giving back has a boomerang effect, and holding back can hinder you in your quest.
Try: being fearless
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Today will be a day of adjustments. Many of the adjustments will benefit you later on, so stop grumbling and just do what you need to do in order to move forward. Of course there will be those who criticize you, but there will be others who openly praise your efforts. Either way, there will be some emotional tension present throughout the day. |
Try: watching a butterfly
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
If you don’t let go of the demons that have haunted you, you will just keep toting them around until they drag you down. Like Amy Winehouse (who was recently admitted to the hospital after collapsing in St. Lucia), you have to take the first step forward. It’s time you felt free to concentrate on the things that are important to you. Take care, because rewards are in store for you – a chance meeting with someone will have you giggling like a 3-year-old.
Try: giving a gift of love
