Today’s Horoscope: Wednesday, February 25, 2009
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Hypocrites are everywhere, including in your inner circle. The hardest part about accepting the word of someone who appears to be an authority on an issue is swallowing their line of bull then pretending that you didn’t know it was bull. Take Terrence Howard, who was eager to share his opinion on the Chris Brown/Rihanna issues, but according to public records, Howard was arrested in 2001 for simple assault. Wouldn’t it just be better for all parties concerned, you included, to just keep your mouth shut when an issue arises?

Aries March 21 – April 19
Expect much activity to happen today. Your life may feel like Lost and American Idol right now (think: The two shows going head to head tonight in the same time slot on different channels) but for every problem there is a solution. It may not be obvious right away, but with a little boost, you’ll see the solution fall into place. And if all else fails, maybe you can buy a video recorder and make like you are in two places at once.
Try: reading a dollar bill
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Tim Gunn claims to be Meryl Streep’s biggest fan, but not without conditions. He wants to take her shopping for new duds that fit what he thinks should be her image. It’s easy to say that you love something or even someone, but if you really want to know what true love is, you might consider accepting that person unconditionally. Nothing makes a puzzle fit tighter than accepting that all the pieces (even the jagged edges) fit together to form a whole.

Gemini May 21 – June 21
Michael Phelps may be an Olympic gold medalist, but he still has to obey the laws in the state just you like have to obey the same laws. Favoritism will be bestowed on someone in your circle today, and you can’t help wondering if it’s because the person has star qualities. While it’s easy to envy someone, you often forget that whenever you were shown special favor, others were envying you. Instead of seeing the negative and questioning someone else’s star qualities, ask yourself if you’ve ever benefited from favoritism.

Cancer June 22 – July 22
According to recent news reports, Thailand and Vietnam may be modeling a program after America to keep rice prices from falling below the current levels (think: Corn program). This could be a boom for the industry; the program could absorb excess rice stocks during an oversupply. While this may not seem to be relevant to your day, it is. Your job is looking at ways to keep the current level of workers rather than having to lay off anyone. Their new program may offer you some reassurances.
Try: making a kite
Leo July 23 – August 22
Hobbies can be wonderful ways to show the world that you take something seriously. Take the Indian Grocer, Radhakant Baijpai, whose ear hair measures a whopping 25 centimeters, qualifying him for a Guinness World Record. Today, relaxation is order, which will give you time to spend on one of your numerous hobbies. Enjoy the time off from the stress of work, and don’t forget to include your friends and family.

Virgo August 23 -September 22
Relationships drive the day. If you aren’t happy with the way things are going, then offer a solution to the problem. Or you just may find yourself in a similar situation as Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere, who ended their relationship after realizing that things just weren’t working out the way they had planned. With your do-everything perfect attitude, you wouldn’t want anyone thinking that you didn’t give it your all, would you?

Libra September 23- October 22
Rather than worrying about your dwindling funds, you may want to do what Michael Jackson has done – sell your stuff. He sold more than 2,000 items from his Neverland estate to line his coffers. Look around your home and ask yourself if you have anything that someone else would pay for. If the answer is yes, then head online and post your items. If you can’t part with a treasure, keep looking. Everyone has something that they no longer need that can bring in much-needed funds.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Business decisions will likely take up most of your waking hours today. You may be thinking that the decisions handed down are coming at a bad time, but there are opportunities for growth everywhere. For instance, fans of Sam Donaldson may be sad at his leaving the airwaves, but another person somewhere now has an opportunity to take over his coveted position. To help make your decisions easier, you may want to first think about the opportunities that your decisions will create and then execute your plans.
Try: figuring out your BMI
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Procrastination can’t be all that bad, when you think about the percentage of people who continue to transfer the same incomplete actions from one list to another. Your mission for today is to take one item off your list and complete it. Not only will this offer your ego a boost, but research has shown obtaining a goal gives you the motivation to continue. It can also help give you a better sense of satisfaction. So get serious and get one thing done today that you’ve been putting off.
Try: not complaining
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
You most likely will spend the day defending your actions today. Like the woman in Texas who has undergone over nine breast-enlargement surgeries, you have to stick to your goals regardless of the opposition. That doesn’t mean that you can’t find a way to make all parties happy; it just means that if you have to choose between your wishes and the oppositions, you may just be better off doing the one thing that makes you happy, regardless of the consequences.
Try: watching a ball game
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Conflict is the key word today. It could come in the form of something simple, or it could be something major (think: The investors given checks for profits on nonexistent investments made by Madoff must return the money). The thing to remember today is that while tempers are flaring, you want to be certain that you don’t say or do anything that will ruin a relationship. Keep your nasty comments to yourself and your hands by your side during the conflict.
Try: playing like a kid
