Your Daily Horoscope for Friday, February 8
By Kelli Fox
March 21- April 19
You’re at your energetic and impassioned best today. You’re rarely one to back down from a challenge. Now, that’s truer than ever! Your ambitious nature takes over. You want to be the best. In just about any competitive setting, you can show your true abilities. That goes for playing a game or making a presentation at work. Challenges don’t faze you. They just put you on top of your game!
April 20-May 20
Your energy is up today. You’re probably feeling just a little bit frisky! Instead of moving along at your usual, steady pace, you’re pushing forward in bursts. If you’re working on a project requiring physical strength, this cosmic boost should help. Just don’t burn out early — even you, with your stamina. Do your best to measure out your energy rather than using it up in one big shove.
May 21-June 21
You’re always quick on the uptake, but especially today. Your mind is sharp and your thoughts move ahead quickly. Clever comments occur to you like tiny flashes of lightning! You might keep yourself — and others — laughing all day long. But keep in mind that even the wittiest of barbs is still a barb. Folks are easily irritated right now, so take measures to make sure you don’t upset the wrong person.
June 22-July 22
Most people may not realise this about you, but you have a competitive streak. You want to be and do your best. This urge comes to the fore today in a big way. If you feel challenged by someone, you’ll step up and defend yourself. This is pretty different from other days, when you’re more likely to retreat and lick your wounds. Strength is positive. Just be sure to choose your battles!
July 23-August 22
High spirits put you in a great mood today. So you’re a little bit reckless. So what? Taking chances can lead to good things now. Maybe that’s just the magic of self-confidence! You have no trouble thinking on your feet, even under pressure. It’s a great day to impress someone, such as your employer or another VIP. They’ll surely take note of how well you perform, even when you’re completely unrehearsed.
August 23-September 22
Take the initiative today at work or in some other setting. Of course, that can be tough for you. You don’t tend to think of yourself as a leader. But the current influence enhances the part of you that knows exactly how to take charge. Just watch how you treat others, especially if you’re in charge of a group. Gentle encouragement is so much more helpful than sharp criticism.
September 23-October 22
Let your passion loose today. You’re feeling things more strongly than usual. Give that fervent energy free expression! Why not? If you’re worried about overstepping your bounds, don’t. That might happen, but it won’t be the worst thing in the world. It would be worse to feel something strongly but hang back out of fear. Sometimes, refined behaviour isn’t the most important thing. A bit of boldness is in order!
October 23 – November 22
You have plenty of energy today. In fact, you may have a little too much, so be sure to channel it. Physical exercise is a good idea. So is doing your own thing. Working too closely with other people is when issues can develop. You’ve got your own ideas. It’s hard to be flexible about adapting them to someone else’s plan. Do your best, and take deep breaths when you need to!
November 23-December 20
Your inner fire burns today. You have so much passion! This turns you into a truly dynamic mover and shaker. Now you can make big things happen, and shine while you’re doing it. So what will it be? Any goal you choose is yours. You’ll make it your own through sheer power of will! That’s why channeling this energy is the smartest thing you can do. Then it won’t go to waste.
December 21-January 19
Feeling a little competitive today, are we? Or maybe a lot! The current energy gets under your skin, where it starts a little internal fire. It pushes you to do and be your best. Nothing wrong there. You have a lot of talent, and you’ve worked hard to develop your skills. The only problems may come from being overly aggressive when it isn’t necessary. Remember, there’s a difference between assertiveness and belligerence.
January 20-February 18
Welcome to a fun day. Ideas and activities develop at the spur of the moment. This keeps you guessing all day! And you wouldn’t have it any other way. You love an unplanned day. Furthermore, your independent nature is highlighted now. You crave freedom and action. Make sure you have plenty of autonomy, so you can do what you want. Being held back by rules, restrictions or expectations would just irritate you.
February 19-March 20
Leadership may not be your thing. Still, today you feel a spark of motivation. Suddenly, you want to take the lead after all. You’re feeling independent. You don’t want anyone telling you what to do! It even feels good to make your own mistakes. At the moment, you trust yourself more than usual to work your way out of a tough spot. Use this energy boost to build on your newfound confidence.
