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.

A financial adventure seems to be on the horizon. Though this has probably been discussed for some years now, it could be that you're now asked to consider a different role. It's likely that this will give you greater authority - to be discussed at a meeting tomorrow. Meanwhile, relations with someone who lives long-distance could reach an important phase. For now, perhaps, you should just listen.. (horoscopes.co.uk)

Thanks to your extended network, you could be oh-so-close to a new professional (and financial) platform. If the planets are playing music, then it's likely they're arriving at a major chord.

Before the weekend you may need to sign an important document. Today you might wish to check (again) the legalities. A Leo friend (or someone who works in design) might need you to make firm commitment to a partnership. You could also remind a Gemini that they have to be responsible for their actions - and that they need to decide what it is that they want. Someone with a very deep voice could hold you transfixed.(horoscopes.co.uk)

You may be inclined to spread yourself a little thin today because you are trying to handle six things at once. Get your list of priorities straight before you start. Then tick them off as you go along and you'll end up feeling pleased with yourself. You want more stimulating company over the next few days, more travel if you can manage or some other way of broadening your horizons. Don't wait for it to happen. Go out and seek. (Daily Mail).

This might be a good time to do outstanding paperwork. It's not a plodding kind of day at all, really it is rather fidgety. But you will have good insights and a quick eye for what is out of place. It is a good day to get new things started. There may be nothing hugely important but it will waken you up. The Sun is in your most hidden chart area which means you will be concentrating on confidential matters, both financial and emotional.(Daily Mail)

The Sun beside Mercury in the heavens will make you think and move faster than usual. Mercury was the messenger of the gods who flitted around with wings on the heels of his sandals, so he was never still. Your mind will be exactly the same. You know you need to tackle tasks that are piling up in front of you. But for that you need to be fitter, so review your physical lifestyle, see whether you could improve your diet or get more rest.
