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 efforts behind the scenes a little financial progress is possible. Dates for meetings next week could be changed however - which might tempt you to be stern with someone younger. It's possible that they're not messing you around though, - and that until closer to the end of the month, no more can be said. Meanwhile, your relationship with a Libra might require extra attention.

Oh dear, just as you get in the mood to come out to play, a responsibility you'd forgotten all about, could be raised by a relative. It may be that you promised something some weeks ago. Not letting this person down and finding compromise could be challenging. Discussions with a bank manager or financial advisor seems likely - and could result in a reduction of financial stress.

Balancing your financial books might not be easy - but could suit your mood. Knowing where you stand and choosing a deal from an array of options could test your mental powers yet be curiously therapeutic. A joint financial arrangement could then be agreed. Property and protection of assets may dominate much of your conversation.

A group you are affiliated with could meet today, perhaps in your neighborhood. Dear Leo, you should be more focused on listening to what they have to say than on actively participating in discussions. You'll want to soak in every idea that comes up and mull it over seriously in your mind before expressing yourself. When you communicate, you should express yourself freely and openly. Your mind is both intuitive and logical, so expect to learn a lot.

A small gathering, perhaps in your home, could bring up the subject of the world economy and what it's going to mean to the individual. Therefore, you could find yourself contemplating and maybe even discussing your financial future. This is a good time to make such plans, dear Virgo, as your mind is operating at a high level, both logically and intuitively. Make sure you write down any ideas or insights that come your way. You'll want to remember them.

You generally enjoy philosophy, metaphysics and other forms of higher thought, dear Scorpio, but today you could find yourself nearly obsessive about them. You might decide to sequester yourself at home and concentrate on studying these concepts. This is a great day to do this, as intellect combines with intuition to enable you to understand abstract ideas and make sense of them. Then you can apply it to your everyday life! Go to it!
