Today’s Horoscope: Friday, February 27, 2009
Pisces February 19 – March 20
If you don’t watch out today, you could end up in a lot of trouble for not supporting your good friend emotionally. Just because you can’t summon up sympathy for their predicament doesn’t mean that you can’t put aside your personal differences and show some sympathy. You gave the advice – it wasn’t taken, but that doesn’t mean anything. We all get to choose our path, so get off your high horse and treat your friend like you would wish to be treated.
Try: staying informed
Aries March 21 – April 19
You may finally get that chance to travel. Let’s hope your travels take you to one of the five must-see places that are in danger of disappearing, thanks to global warming (see CNN’s recent report). Check out the opportunities that are present wherever you end up, and be on the lookout to reestablish a professional relationship – this person will be important in the very near future.
Try: flossing your teeth
Taurus April 20 – May 20
You can expect someone to help you out today monetarily. The bad news is it won’t be on the scale that Debbie Matenopoulos is expecting (she is asking the courts for $12,558 a month in temporary spousal support), but you will be able to manage what you receive. Tonight you can expect to reconnect with someone from your past.
Try: not cursing
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Health issues are keeping you from fully enjoying the day. You may need to take a break from the world in order to get the necessary rest to allow your body to heal. It is easier said than done, but if anyone can do it you can. If you need any encouragement, take a page from Cher, who recently said that she goes easy on herself (foregoing casinos, drinks and indoor smoking areas, using e-mail versus talking to preserve her voice, and sleeping eight hours a night) while performing in Las Vegas. With a little imagination, you should be able to justify your day of rest by telling friends and family that if it can work for Cher, it can work for you.
Try: fighting back
Cancer June 22 – July 22
With the stock market suffering from mood swings it’s no wonder that many investors are worried. Money issues have always been a concern with you – even before the recession, you were worrying about having enough money. You may be offered a once-in-a-lifetime deal, but it would be wise to avoid jumping into it without giving it some serious thought. Can you afford to lose what little you have saved?
Try: being physically active today
Leo July 23 – August 22
The past has a funny way of catching up with you. At one point you felt you were at the top of your game, but not now. You might spend the day wondering whether things will ever be the same again. Have faith that they will get better. If you don’t believe that, just think about J.D. Fortune (who became the lead singer of INXS for a whopping two years until he was asked to step down after drugging his way through a tour), who is now releasing his first solo album, The Death of a Motivational Speaker.
Try: shopping around for insurance
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Today, if you want to get something accomplished, you are going to have to cut off contact with the world. If you put down your BlackBerry and step away from your e-mail, you may find that you are actually getting stuff done. Gadgets are a wonderful accompaniment to today’s hectic world, but you have been spending more time with yours than necessary. Put needless distractions down and use your time more wisely.
Try: realizing your potential
Libra September 23 – October 22
The word *free* doesn’t always mean free. Take the catchy advertisement for freecredit.com. Why pay for that when you can get your credit report free through annualcreditreport.com? Beware special offers that require you to use your credit card for a “free” product. Of course, you are wiser than most but some things sound too good to be true.
Try: making a pot of chili
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Expect to run into an old enemy today. You probably don’t even remember how or why the relationship was derailed, but you’ll find yourselves circling each other to see if things can be worked out. Be the bigger person and try to patch up the relationship; it will make you feel as if you have accomplished something. So much of your life depends on how you treat others.
Try: doing 25 crunches
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Today has you contemplating a recent weight gain and how you plan to shed those unwanted pounds. Before you start, you may want to do some serious thinking about how much you plan to lose and how you plan to lose it. If you want to see what you would look like lighter you can head over to weightview.com, download a picture of yourself at your current weight and then let the site work its magic. As for the diet, you know that moderation is probably the best way for you to lose.
Try: making soup for dinner
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Regardless of what you hear today, listen to your instincts – they’re trying to tell you something only you can hear. It’s like the old saying: If a dog owner says his dog doesn’t bite, it doesn’t mean a thing – if the dog has teeth, it bites. It may not bite *you*, but it does bite. Take heed today and realize that if someone is trying to sell you a truckload of bull, they don’t have your best interests in mind.
Try: eating french fries
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
If it smells fishy, it probably is fishy. Today, you will have several
opportunities to make “once-in-a-lifetime” deals, but don’t even entertain them. It would be wise for you to ask for more time to decide whether you wish to invest. If they can’t give you time, then walk away. There are too many con artists posing as professionals for you to take a chance on losing your hard-earned cash to their scams (think: Bernie Madoff and R. Allen Stanford). If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Try: random acts of kindness
