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.

You may have arrived at a commercial or financial decision. In closing a chapter, there could still be loose ends to deal with tomorrow. For now you might be impressed that younger people are acting quickly - and that they're not afraid to drag up the past and discuss painful issues in order to arrive at a forward-thinking solution to a problem.(horoscopes.co.uk)

Dramas are likely - and you could make them. Perhaps you need others to acknowledge all you've achieved in recent months - or maybe you just need to show off. A little envy or jealousy could be apparent. Keeping this monster in check might not be easy. Someone you hold in high professional regard could tip you off about plans for next year that give you something to be enthusiastic about though.(horoscopes.co.uk)

Just how good you are at providing back-up support could be under scrutiny. Friends born under Aries, Leo and Sagittarius might appreciate your role as 'stage-manager'. Your ability to keep track of costs might be MOST appreciated. Interestingly, you could also attract attention within a group - where it might be suggested that you take on a more prominent role.(horoscopes.co.uk)

You may feel self-sacrificing where other people are concerned. But perhaps you think they need your help more than they actually do. But remember that looking after yourself is a top priority. If you are normally lacking in confidence, Mercury in aspect to Mars will shake you up and make you talk in a livelier way. It will give you the boldness to do things you haven't been able to tackle before. Just don't get too confrontational. (Daily Mail)

The influences around today are enlightening but they could also be misleading. You need to stay very grounded to get the best use of Neptune. It can be religious or spiritual, even connected to things paranormal. Mercury emphasised now will keep you talking and moving around quickly, and in aspect to Mars there will be added vitality and enthusiasm. Don't get furious if someone disagrees with you. Try to enjoy the challenge. (Daily Mail).

There are rather confusing and uncertain influences around today, so try to do less rather than more until the dust settles. It won't be easy to be clear in your focus, since you can't find enough motivation. Luckily later in the day you'll suddenly find your focus and be on your toes. You'll be zapping around at top speed, but try as well to be more reflective. Luckily your enthusiasm will sweep others along with you. (Daily Mail).
