It is logical that the more effort you put in, the more rewards you reap. You've been working hard, so right now you deserve a break. It's not that you're tired and need a rest -- more likely, you need space and time to gain perspective on all you've done. You deserve a big pat on the back, and the realization that you are capable of truly amazing things. Rack up some leisure time -- you can appreciate your success without focusing exclusively on it.

Every now and again you need to reassess your priorities and see how well they fit into your daily routine -- are you creating enough time in your day for play? Keeping your calendar jam-packed may be a nice way to stay in the center of everyone's life, but it's also a good way to lose perspective on your own. Try shifting some of the things you feel aren't that important to the top of the 'must do' list -- enjoy a quiet cup of coffee, take a walk or call a friend.

All signs are pointing to a fantastic new beginning for you and a certain someone, but everything might not be quite ready to move forward today. Things are going to happen slowly this time, so remember what they say -- anything worth having is worth waiting for. Luckily, a big payoff is due today in another area of your life, and it's one you should share. In fact, you would be wise to build a group social event around it.

Reflections can't just be found in mirrors -- today, seeing your true self isn't really possible unless you take time to be honest and accept your imperfections. Put away your ego and you will be able to learn a valuable lesson about your insecurities. Family traits are not written in stone -- who you are is not predetermined, you are a work in process. You can make all the changes you want to make, you just have to start -- and then keep going.

Today vision is important -- the vision to see what is right in front of you, and the vision to see what is coming down the road. Both types will come into play: Early in the day you will notice a few foreboding clouds in the sky -- take the measures you need to take to ensure that you and your people avoid them. Also, a bolt of recognition strikes you when someone expresses how much they care about you -- you see that there is so much love right in front of you!

You'll have a strong ability to pick things up quickly today -- all you have to do is take one glance at how to do something, and you'll be an instant pro! Learning by example will apply to all areas of your life -- witnessing some tension in someone else's relationship today will teach you what you want -- or, more importantly, what you don't want. Someone's bizarre behavior will inspire you to take the opposite approach (you will have much more success).
(09/23 - 10/22)
Little by little, your confidence is expanding, and you'll see that more clearly than ever today. People are noticing a change in you, although few of them are secure enough in themselves to tell you how impressed they are by your accomplishments. Others may be holding onto a bit of jealousy, but that's their choice and it really isn't coloring how much they do love you. A family member you don't always agree with is ready to see things your way.
(10/23 - 11/21)
You're moving into a very introspective, low-key phase of life -- today and the next few days will be all about keeping things quiet, being more inward and spending your social time homebound rather than out on the town. If a friend has their heart set on a crazy night out, find out if they'd be up for a more mellow affair. If they take you up on it, this could be a great opportunity to get to know them better and take things to a more significant level.

Like any relationship, friendships are a give-and-take. But if you are feeling lately like you've been giving a lot and not getting much in return, make an effort to communicate this issue to your friend (very subtly) today. If they're just not getting what you're saying, then they may be too much in their own head to listen. Instead of pushing the issue further, wait a while. Save the conversation for another time when you can sit face-to-face and they can give you their full attention.
(12/22 - 01/19)
Gather input today from all sources and keep an open mind about what they may have to say. Make an especially strong effort to connect with your family -- either in person, on the phone or online. Even if there's no big issue to discuss, if you share the latest news with them you may get some inspiring feedback. At work, remember that communication is a two-way street; put your energy into having real conversations with higher ups, not just one-sided reviews. Good is coming.
(01/20 - 02/18)
Seek out the simple pleasures today. Truly, there's not much you need right now to make you happy -- everything is already in you, as you will come to more fully understand today. Events may catch you off guard, but there's a strong sense of balance around you right now, so you'll handle things with grace. In a relationship, small efforts will move the biggest obstacles. Sure, things may not move as quickly as you want, but you'll get satisfaction just from trying.
(02/19 - 03/20)
As your perseverance starts to poop out today, try a little positive thinking to get yourself going again. Focus on the reason you're still plugging along and on the goal you want to attain. It may help you to know that behind the scenes, things are really picking up. Unbeknownst to you, all signs are pointing toward a definite success. Look out for all the warmer smiles and heartier hello's that are sent your way -- they can also put some wind in your sail.
