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.

Though still anxious for a reply to a carefully worded text or letter, there may be little you can do but wait. In the meantime, it might be therapeutic to clear away items no longer needed. You might also need to talk through a situation that's now in the past but where you haven't quite 'closed the door'. This could be the opening needed by a colleague who wants to review your working relationship - and who has an interesting suggestion to make.

Putting pen to paper - or arranging for a message to be conveyed on your behalf could be so, so important. True, you might need to wait a day or so for reaction. Even so, knowing that a process is underway could reduce stress that may have been building in recent weeks. It's possible also that thanks to a relative or good friend (a Capricorn?) you could work out a way of recycling an object and saving money as a result.

A change in routine - or even in workplace - might now be on the horizon. You may have seen this coming over the last few weeks. Now though comes the realisation that certain friendships will change as a result. It's possible also that you'll find that it's the children of old friends who are playing an increasingly important role. Actually, it could be one of this group who is central to these developments.
