This cosmic collision sends your mind into overdrive but hold your tongue. Type keyword s to search. Today's Top Stories. If chivalry is just a nervous habit, you could do much worse. And you're so over that whole school-yard bully dynamic, anyway. Get beyond appearances today and show them that real wolves and real sheep have transcended their storybook roles. People have good and bad sides, and right now being decisive, loyal and, yes, polite will resolve a lot more problems than those behaviors create.
In the end, that resolution is what brings real security. It doesn't matter whether you're under pressure, stretched tight or at loose ends.
You could be all revved up or as subdued as a whisper. Today will find you vague and moody. It'll be harder than usual to fake sincerity if you're not feeling it. Flippant remarks might cut deeper than you intended. Try harder to stay in focus so that you can read the situation better. It's OK to let people know your current limitations, but you have to be kind about it.
You'd expect the same courtesy. At the moment, your heart and mind are quietly untroubled. Today you're as peaceful as a dove and helpful as a child, which means you're content to let others run the show. You have no problem taking direction from someone else, as long as their heart is in the right place. You're demonstrating the power of acquiescence now. This doesn't mean that you've given up control to someone else, though.
It's just that passive control can be so much easier. Not to mention more effective! Something's off. Maybe your mood and energy aren't right.
You feel entitled to many things, but you don't quite know what they are. You could be feeling needy or grabby.

That's far more than some can say. You've been trying your hardest. You've been wearing the biggest smile you've got and speaking in your sweetest voice. And yet, you just can't seem to win them over. All this toxic niceness is backfiring. It's time to do something decisive to save the situation, or at least yourself. Today, figure out a way to shake them awake by other means. And don't neglect the benefits of stating your case or your opinion plainly.
You tend to avoid being direct with people, but sometimes it's the only way to get through to them. You've been keeping to yourself, haven't you? When the phone rings, you let your voicemail answer. When a friend sends an e-mail, you file it away for later response.
And that's okay. Seclusion suits you well right now. Your focus and energy have turned inward. You're taking sublime inventory of your true, inner self. It's best to keep your own counsel today. That way, you can tighten your focus and establish a solid plan for the moment you'll spring into action.
And when that happens, well -- watch out, world! You seem careless and quirky, fashionably sloppy yet daring to be different. It's all an act, obviously a very good one, but an act just the same. Deep down, you're seething with conventional anxieties. Welcome to the human race.
Of course, you don't have to dwell on this stuff all the time. Just be yourself today as kind of a check-in. Let real friends offer real help. They actually like you even if you're all living with one foot in the land of illusion. And that's one less reason to complain. Respect what others call holy or authentic, even if your inner voice tells you they're trying to scam you or just deluding themselves.
But along with giving them your respect, it wouldn't hurt to look beyond or behind what they say. Maybe you'll get a better idea about what they're thinking and what unseen forces are at work here. Keep these investigations within the realm of peaceful curiosity, because you're really not trying to make trouble.
You can learn a lot about your world today, and maybe then you'll be better qualified to judge, or even see that judgment is meaningless. Today is a good time to connect with your own watery energy. Let it flow subtly and beautifully by meditating on the movement and quality of water itself -- that free-flowing thing that meanders wherever it can. That's how your thoughts should work.
Horoscopes for you

What does the astrology for 12222 have in store for your star sign?
Either you do a lot of yoga, or you've got relaxation down to a science. Some people may call you spineless for all this, but that's only because they're so rigid. All you're doing is changing with the changes, and that's OK for now. Though it may work against your mood or your very nature, do your best to be patient and pleasant today.
You aren't alone in this world, and you need people in your corner, whether you're combining efforts at work or with friends. Keep your motives pure. That way, other people will know they can trust you. Does this really cost you so much? Even if today's reality doesn't line up with your favored fantasies, at least you'll know you're not forcing it. They don't have to tell you what good taste is.
You're already way too cool and suave for that kind of advice. You can read situations and minds because people's true intentions are evident to you. Of course, you don't want to creep them out by flaunting your psychic abilities. Your best bet is to observe and then act accordingly. If you can take the social pulse today, you'll be positioned to improve the spiritual health of friends and strangers alike. Get them to smile and trust each other, and that'll be your first step right there. It's OK if your dreams are big.
A healthy fantasy life is important, and who can control what their unconscious mind washes up? But there could be trouble if your hopes are as unrealistic as your dreams. You're flirting with movie stars whose lunch would cost you a week's pay. You're way too loose-lipped with other people's secrets. Common sense sinks beneath a flood of wannabe one-upmanship. This can't be healthy. Watch your back today. You might be having fun, but somebody else could take this way too personally.
Images and intuition come quickly now, overflowing your mind.
You know your perceptions are accurate, because they're completely from the heart. You're meeting the world on its own terms, which is to say, you've let go of what's logical in favor of what simply is. Be sure to write these dreams and inspirations on the wall, so everyone can have a few days to ponder your vision. That way, you can all act together. Not now, though. This period is all about letting your thoughts go where they will.
You can turn them into something concrete later. You're a bit of a dreamer, especially under today's energy. You just want life to be incredible. Is that so much to ask? Often it is. At the moment, you need to take stock of yourself. Consider whether you're working to fix what's broken or just fixating on how you wish things would turn out.
Wild, romantic idealism at the moment will only cause you to suffer needlessly. It may seem depressing to be realistic. But you'll be a lot better off if you stick with what's possible. Who's truly deserving of your charity? Figure this out today, and be judicious. That shouldn't be too difficult, even under the current, idealistic energy. You're analytical by nature, so turn that sharp eye of yours toward the areas of your life in which you give too much.
You might find you've been overly compassionate with some people but not enough with others, including yourself. That's right: You're deserving of your own kindness, more than anyone. At the very least, find ways to trim your selfless giving to what's truly necessary.
You've always been a bit gullible. That tendency could get you into trouble today. You're always so anxious to please everyone. Being the idealist you are, you'll jump too fast at irrational suggestions instead of taking the time to think things through. Weigh out what's a good idea and what isn't. It's obvious to everyone around you that your hopes are high. Make sure you don't invite anyone to take advantage of your eagerness or your good intentions.
Mysteries and intrigue move through your mind like strange fish through deep, dark water. You know what it all means, or at least, you have a pretty good idea -- even if no one else does. And that's just fine. Be as cryptic as you please today. There's no reason to share your thoughts or plans with anyone else, and as long as you're considerate, who can complain? Eventually you'll explain what it all means, but until then, keep to yourself.
That's what makes you so sexy. What's so great about the home team? It's just people playing a game, not some deep part of your identity. While there's a lot to be said for blending in with the landscape, chameleons need to show their true colors from time to time. The moment for sly criticism is over. Be honest about you who really are, what you really think, and be realistic about the consequences.
Go your own way today. Follow a more natural course.
