LEO: You are completely misunderstood — the people you’re surrounded by don’t see your special talents. You’ve been struggling with this for years, but no one is going to come to your rescue. You must realize that it’s your lack of clarity that creates these issues and the time has come to defend your ideas! When this all syncs together you will be a force to be reckoned with.

CAPRICORN: Success is within your reach, but the missing piece to the puzzle will come from a partner who will point out what you are not seeing. Seek out people who will tell you the truth instead of what you want to hear. You will turn a vague idea into a major opportunity, so be aware of tiny details that can make it extraordinary. It will take all your street smarts, but you have exactly what it takes to make it work.
AQUARIUS: This just in: You are ahead of the curve, but you just need to come back to reality enough for people to not think you’re cray-cray.

Success is a wonderful mixture of profit and pleasure.
PISCES: New relationships are a wonderful escape from reality, but dancing in the dark can only last so long before you feel lost. Wake up enough to be sure that the other person doesn’t have an ulterior motive. Instead of rushing into things, set some boundaries and take the time to build each other’s trust. Approach this as if it isn’t everlasting and keep your imagination wide open. That way, the magic will stay put.
