New And Improved HuffPollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For February 23

03/28/2008 02:46 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

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.

Thanks to an old contact, you may now be in a position to move in a circle to which you've felt alienated in recent years. A reunion seems likely. Post-lunar eclipse blues could now give way to a degree of detachment. The only area in which this might not apply is in a close partnership where passions could be aroused once again, - and just why you are so closely linked to someone brought home.

Your thrift-management abilities (and yes! you do have some !) could be to the fore. You could successfully bargain-hunt or decide to let go an item that no longer has value for you but which could put cash in the bank. Indeed, this could be one of your better 'eBay days' of the year. Another possibility is re-connection with someone who was once a major feature in your life. It may be that there are loose ends to resolve.

It may be important to you to visit a place that will have great meaning for you later in the year. It could be that you are assessing whether or not this is an appropriate venue to mark a milestone in your life. It seems likely that this is linked to an anniversary. It might also be that the colours emerald green, ruby red room and velvety black will be important.
