Daily Horoscope: Aries, Taurus & Gemini

{Horoscope for Monday, August 31, 2009}


(Aries, March 31 to April 20: A friend in need may be a friend indeed, but this can also mean they're a pain in the behind. While it may be slightly excruciating, you yourself will need to exercise your patience muscle when it comes to platonic relationships now. If they need to vent about work, or their honey, or the price of gas -- and vent, and vent -- it's your duty to make sympathetic noises, at least for a certain amount of time.)

(Taurus, April 21 to May 21: Go ahead and go all the way. What's the point of putting in half your effort when you know you're capable of so much more than this? If you have the ability and the stamina to pour into this project or relationship, there's no use in holding back. After all, you get out of this life what you put into it. So in order to get the best, you know exactly what it is that you have to do. Get started.)

(Gemini, May 22 to June 23: Details -- pay attention to them. Right now, all your focus needs to be concentrated on the nitty-gritty to make sure the big picture gels just the way it should. If you're feeling a little overwhelmed, go ahead and call in the reinforcements -- friends, a family member, even a coworker with some free time. They can point out anything you might have missed. {Horoscope source, Marie Claire.com.
