You might feel financially obligated to others today. You’re taking your debt seriously because you want to fulfill your obligations to others. If you make an important financial decision today, doublecheck all your facts because something is not the way it looks.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you feel obligated to a partner or close friend. You might want to help them organize something, or you might just lend your energy to whatever they’re doing. Make sure that discussions with authority figures and parents are clear. Make no assumptions.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you will work hard to achieve what you want to do because you are taking your duties and responsibilities seriously. You might want to finish up something that was left undone. Unfortunately, despite your ambition to be Johnny on the spot, your energy is flagging. Oh well, no one is perfect.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Children are an increased responsibility today because, for some reason, you will take your responsibilities with children very seriously. Likewise, a romantic partner might have a serious discussion about the division of labor or expenses.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will take your family responsibilities seriously today. You might feel indebted to a parent and want to help them. Your impulse is good but be careful about misunderstandings with partners or close friends. Do not assume that you know for sure what others want.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Whatever you do today, you will do with care and precision because you have excellent concentration and will pay attention to details. Plus this is the kind of day where you take everything seriously. However, postpone important decisions if you feel you lack confidence, which is likely.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be uptight about financial matters today. Perhaps you feel broke or that you don’t have enough money to do what it is you really want to do. Are your aspirations about your kids or vacations or social plans too ambitious? How can you make them a reality?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You have a strong sense of duty and responsibility to others today. However, having said that, you also feel confused about a family member or something going on at home. Don’t dwell on this confusion or feelings of loneliness today. They will pass.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will prefer working alone or behind the scenes today because you are dedicated to doing something. It gives you pleasure to feel productive. Whatever you do, don’t doubt yourself today because it’s easy to do this. Just put one foot in front of the other.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Relations with others are a bit strained today. For starters, you feel serious about your obligations to whatever you’re doing, which means you are not going to take time out for casual detours. And if you do, you’ll feel guilty! Information about money might be misleading … caution.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You have a strong sense of responsibility and duty today, especially to a parent or a boss. Yet ironically, you’re confused about how to deliver. Perhaps you don’t have all the information you need? Or perhaps someone else is being too much of a stickler about things.
