With today's planetary alignment, there is potentially an endless amount of energy for you to engage. But it is not necessary to use it like a battering ram. Instead, try taking a more philosophical and relaxed attitude.

Today's horoscope: Someone who interests you could seem to be showing interest in someone else. This might arouse your insecurities and cause a bit of jealousy. Don't make yourself crazy, Cancer.

Get the crucial ones done and let others go. Relax with a movie tonight.

Today you are given the added ability to use your belief system like an arrow that you can fire in any direction you choose.

Treat yourself to takeout tonight.
Love horoscope: There is a competitive edge to your romantic life today. Your partner may not be content to take all your opinions lying down. Perhaps they want to contribute some ideas.

Today's horoscope: A female visitor who needs some sympathy could contact you today.

This information could trigger your own insights. Write down your ideas. You'll want to remember them.
Love horoscope: There is the tendency to preach to your partner today about issues that may need sorting out. Today's aspect at play means that there is a great deal of zeal involved, and you may feel the need to have your partner agree with you on these matters. This probably won't work, however, because nobody likes to be forced into a corner. Allow them the freedom to think for themselves.
Today's horoscope: Some important plans, perhaps involving a vacation or education, could be temporarily blocked by circumstances beyond your control, Scorpio.

Love horoscope: You do not like to try and persuade people to do things against their real wishes, preferring to live and let live. However, with today's aspect at play, you seem to have a bee in your bonnet concerning your loved one. Something about them is bothering you and making you to want to change them. Talk to them tactfully and compassionately, as this is more likely to be the best path.
Today's horoscope: Jealousy could rear its ugly head today, Capricorn. This could involve a romantic relationship. Jealousy is often groundless, so avoid it by doing some communicating. This is the time to make the effort to turn a disadvantage into an advantage. Strong emotions can work for you under some circumstances. A passionate reconciliation is better than an angry estrangement.
Love horoscope: There is nothing like an inferno of fiery enthusiasm, something that you may know all about. It can truthfully be said that you pity those who seem to lack it. But with today's astral configuration, you may need to turn down the volume of your voice in your romantic relationship. Your partner may find that they have problems being heard. A gentle approach brings results.
Today's horoscope: Nervous tension could cause a temporary malaise that keeps your energy very low today. But there are tasks that need to be done, Aquarius, so you'll probably try to do them in spite of the way you feel. Try not to overwork yourself or take your weariness out on others. It's better to let some things go than make yourself and everyone else that much more stressed out.
Love horoscope: Today's aspect at play indicates that there may be a lot of shouting, with people's voices being raised at least several decibels higher than average. This isn't so much due to arguments as to lots of spare energy. Similarly, in your love life today, there may be a lot of shouting, but it is more in the spirit of a really good game and a sense of competition, rather than being angry with each other.
Today's horoscope: A group with which you're affiliated may be temporarily torn apart by quarrels among its members, Pisces. It's best to stay out of it. A friend could be having trouble and come to you for advice and help. Don't let yourself get too frustrated by his or her weakness. This could be a frustrating day for you, and one best spent concentrating on projects. Everything will be better tomorrow.
Love horoscope: There seems to be a lot of pushing and shoving around today, not only in your general environment but also in your love life. Neither of you is in the mood to give an inch, even you, the master of compromise. However, the day's planetary energy does indicate that you can both have the opportunity to do something pleasant together. Plan a common goal rather than fighting.
