Daily Horoscopes according to astrology.com

Friday

  • Aries: Your emotions have been whirling lately, but it’s time for a break. Life will feel like it’s going more smoothly. You can benefit from other’s ambition — supervise, and let them do the work. Take advantage of downtime and travel, learn about culture. Let today be a day of exploration and curiosity. 

  • Taurus: You may feel like you’re in a hurry today; slow down. Lately, you’ve let yourself get caught in the moment — feeling powerless. This is far from the truth. You have the power to slow life down. Remind yourself you are in control of your own life.

  • Gemini: Let yourself go with the flow; you may find it not only more relaxing, but more interesting. You will get a chance to initiate new ideas and plan projects — that doesn’t mean you have to be the one in charge. Don’t confuse power and opportunity; it could keep you from chances to relax.

  • Cancer: Bring the good memories of those who taught you something valuable to present. Remembering these people of encouragement will bring positivity for the day. Hang in there when times get tough. Honor this positivity and give a helping hand or a hug to someone who is feeling extra stress today. 

  • Leo: Today might feel like you’re too busy to debate, but this feeling is wrong — there is always time to learn more about what is important to you. When you meet someone who challenges you, don’t pretend to agree and smile — question their beliefs. Their answers could surprise and intrigue you. Your mind might be opened up to the possibility that you were wrong. 

  • Virgo: Problems you may have had with feisty coworkers are gone for now, and you will be able to enjoy a lighter mood at work. Your emotions were caught up in a battle that wasn’t yours — although the people you defended appreciated it. Now it’s time to focus on your work. After that brief distraction, this will feel rewarding. 

  • Libra: Take time to reflect on your own life; realize that isn’t selfish, but selfless. By understanding yourself, you are able to become a better friend, lover, employee and more. Don’t feel guilty for wanting to spend time alone today. Even though other people are getting together and having fun, your energy is better suited for introspection, and that’s a good thing.

  • Scorpio: Something big will happen today that forces you to take a controversial stand, but sticking to your values will be cause for admiration from others. By being principled, you are becoming a valued member of your social group, and with that comes power. You can stop a silly argument today — be a voice of reason. 

  • Sagittarius: Mixing business with pleasure is not always a bad move, but it requires delicate attention. If you’re up for it, be positive — juggling romance and workload may take more energy than you expect. Review your company’s policy — is this person worth losing a job for? Keep in mind how to be flirtatious without starting a formal romance — this can bring complication.

  • Capricorn: People may try to find faults in your points today, but they will be nowhere to be found. Your mind is sharp and you know the topic inside and out. Let go of hesitation and insecurity. There’s only room left for confidence and pride! You’re on fire and you know it — let everyone else know too!
  • Aquarius: Today is filled with experimental feelings for you, drawn to big ideas that bring fear of suspicion; but the thought of exploring them is exciting. Tackle it today, the wild things that can become a part of your life. Leave your comfort zone.

  • Pisces: Do you feel like you want to hide from the world? The universe is giving you the energy to do just that. The high-maintenance parts of your life are preoccupied right now — you are free. Do whatever, however. This time alone can help you get back in touch with yourself and what you really want to do about a decision you’ve been putting off.

Release of the Week

Jeff Rosenstock and Laura Stevenson — “Still Young” (EP)

Tuesday marked the 74th birthday of legendary singer/songwriter Neil Young, and unlikely celebrators Jeff Rosenstock and Laura Stevenson released a four-song EP of covers as a tribute. Formerly of DIY punk band Bomb The Music Industry!, the duo sparsely dips into the style of chilled out folk tunes. Instead of turning Neil Young’s classic up to punk rock speed, Stevenson and Rosenstock render mostly faithful covers, and in the process, highlight how punk rock the spirit of Neil Young is.
