Today’s Horoscope: Tuesday, February 24, 2009
Pisces February 19 – March 20
With so many businesses going belly up, now is a good time to reassess what works and what doesn’t. Take for instance the post office going up yet again on postage stamps. It’s clear that the more the price rises the more they (USPS) force people to turn to online banking. And it’s inevitable that before long there will be fewer and fewer users of the postal system as the price continues to climbs. This is a chance for you to seize an opportunity and fill in a gap that isn’t being filled currently. Who knows you just may come up with an answer to save the fledging post office.

Aries March 21 – April 19
Bank of America’s corporate policy states that if an employee takes a trip and said trip is cancelled the employee must refund the money. Call it a shame but when the recent aborted flight went down in the Hudson river several BOA employees who were onboard were asked to give the money back to BOA (the airlines refunded everyone their ticket price). While you wouldn’t call it exactly kosher to demand money from employees who were traumatized on the job, you have to understand that policy is policy. Today remember that you will have to give back those things that you have taken.
Try: keeping a journal
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Big girls are finally receiving there just due. Between the Dove commercials and Gossip singer Beth Ditto (think: Her revealing pose in a brand new magazine) it appears that big girls are finally getting recognized. Your mission for today is to realize that not everyone has to fit into a neat category, including you. What makes each of us different from the other is that we should all look and act different than our peers. Imagine going about your life as a clone instead of an individual. Instead of lamenting the fact that you aren’t like everyone, celebrate.
Try: a game of touch football
Gemini May 21 – June 21
It won’t be easy today to watch events unfold and know that you are helpless to stop them (think: Rihanna’s father comforting his daughter after an alleged attack by Chris Brown). The important thing is to be around during the fall out. Keep your anger to yourself. This isn’t about you it’s about the aggrieved party. Of course later on you can cry to the world about how you felt helpless but for now just be there for the other person.
Try: walking at least 10,000 steps today
Cancer June 22 – July 22
There are rags to riches stories out there that we are all familiar with (think: Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia) and there are stories of those who have fallen from riches back to where they began (think: Michael Jackson selling off most of his possessions to maintain his eccentric lifestyle). It’s ironic that what you have been wishing for is not what you really wanted. But look on the bright side – you at least had a wish granted, now just hold onto the memories and go after another dream.
Try: reading poetry
Leo July 23 – August 22
Last year Mickey Rourke referred to his dog Loki as the love of his life. Loki unfortunately passed away earlier this month. Today your vulnerability will show loud and clear so be careful how you express your emotions. That’s not to say that you won’t grieve for something lost – you should. However, remember that no matter how hard it may seem life should go on. You are stronger than you think.
Try: eating a hot dog
Virgo August 23 -September 22
The feel good movie, Slumdog Millionaire, has garnered more awards this past year than any other film. You only have to watch the movie to understand that great actors come along every now and again, but finding the right script for that actor is even harder. This message will resonate throughout your day, great workers as most corporations will tell you, are exceedingly hard to find but to keep a great worker you have to place them in a job that they can thrive in. You may be wondering if you have found such job today.
Try: passing on dessert
Libra September 23 – October 22
Be extremely careful what you say to people today, words and their usage can hold dual meanings. That’s not to say that everything has dual meanings (think: Lightbourne the man accused of trying to extort $25 million from Travolta) but sometimes your words have a way of hurting others. It’s important that you not minimize anyone else’s feelings just because you yourself don’t feel the same way. Recognize that everyone has their own emotional meter.
Try: playing fast and loose
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Daydreaming can be therapeutic for you today. Like Julia Roberts you may want to voice some of your fantasies to the world (think: Her fantasy of having the Obama girls and her kids setting up a playdate) because fantasies sometimes have a way of becoming reality. In fact it would do you good to not only reveal some of your fantasies to those close to you but to keep in mind that your thoughts are taken literally by the universe.
Try: having bean soup for dinner
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Over the years you’ve made several attempts at different careers. Like R&B singer Justin Timberlake who is now is designing clothing, you feel that in order to live life on your terms you must set the conditions for that life. Don’t be afraid to get out there and get your hustle on, provided that it’s legal, it will be a refreshing change. Someone has their eye on you – keep up the good work and you just may see a promotion along the way.
Try: drawing a self-portrait
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
You may want to consider the advice of a total stranger today. For instance Bristol Palin (the unmarried young daughter of Sarah Palin) recently went on record with her views on abstinence. You don’t have to agree with her stance, but you should make note that unless you have walked in her shoes or even the shoes of millions of young girls like her, then you probably have no way of passing judgment on what’s right or wrong for their age group. It would be wise to keep you mouth shut and your mind open for new changes in your views.
Try: playing like a child
