Zodiac: Scorpio

The moon spends time in your opposite sign today, bringing you a unique blend of intuition and willpower.  This is a good time to use your charm and finesse, rather than more obvious tactics.  After all, when you know exactly to apply force, not much of it is required.  This is your chance to motivate others by inspiring, rather than pushing them. If you’ve done your job correctly, you’ll have the respect you deserve by the end of the day.



Birthstone: Topaz
