Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be pleased with something to do with family or perhaps a parent at this time. You’re happy and optimistic; however, you also have some pretty strong opinions about something — but in the bigger picture, all is positive today. (Quite likely, you want to convince somebody about something.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Something to do with a close relationship with a partner or friend will be very important to you today. Quite likely, it will be something positive and encouraging. (On the other hand, this is also a time when certain situations come to a culmination.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re happy about your job today. Others might be equally happy about a health situation or something to do with a pet. Whatever happens might make you go overboard. “Fresh horses and more whiskey for my men!”
