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.

De-coding and resolving both situations is likely to energise you though. Not only could you make financial gain, there's also the possibility that a Pisces friend will ask for your assistance, giving you another chance to repay an old favour.

Protecting your interests could take priority. Dealing with an insurance company is likely: or perhaps you'll be writing a will. At a different level entirely, a philosophical discussion could lead to you give thought to ancestors - or the spirit world. The threads that connect you to unknown worlds could work in other ways too: impressed by the activities of an environmentalist, you might want to find out more about their work.
