Polls have come to dominate the media's horse race coverage of political campaigns. Pundits and reporters constantly use them to tell us who's hot and who's not -- but skip over the fact that plummeting response rates and variables like undecided voters and margins of error and often render these polls useless as anything other than lightweight diversions on par with horoscopes and political betting lines. Our HuffPollstrology chart helps keep you up to date on the latest poll results, along with the latest horoscope predictions, and the latest online political betting lines - and will hopefully help the polling junkies in the media keep polls in the proper perspective.

Remember: we are now in that period between eclipses. It should be possible for you to draw aside a veil and understand exactly the 'bigger picture' that someone's been holding for ages. Your own creative talents could surface too - or, if not, allow you to make excellent judgment about someone with considerable talent. You might also decide to foster someone much younger: providing a treat that becomes something special in their memory bank later.

In this, you may be inspired by a Capricorn friend who's recently gone to a great deal of trouble to get a design 'just right'.
