  • The Huffington Post

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.

If you're old enough to remember, you might like to think back to 1981. In fact, even if you're not that old you might be interested to know what your family was doing around that time. Echoes from the past are likely to be heard. Another possibility is renewed contact with someone on whom you used to rely greatly. This person may have been living a long way from you but now moving back in your direction. (horoscopes.co.uk)

You could experience one of your 'make a drama' moments. It might suit you to act as though you're playing the lead role in a production. Your authority and ability to hold center-stage could prompt you to behave even more outrageously. This could cause someone older a degree of anguish. At a different level entirely, a key anniversary may need to be acknowledged. (horoscopes.co.uk)

Friends of friends could put a dampener on your plans. They may not see the potential in one of your ideas. They might not realize either, but the more obstacles they put in your way, the more determined you are to succeed. In stripping out an area, your imagination could take flight, and although you may need assistance from a professional builder or plumber, you may see a way of improving an area out of all recognition.

A great deal of attention will be centered on your emotions today, dear Leo, although being centered in itself will be quite the challenge. You may feel like a yo-yo - at the mercy of someone else's hand. Don't fall prey to victimization. Stand up for yourself even if it means that others are likely to get upset. You are responsible for your feelings and no one else's. (astrology.msn.com)

Maintaining equilibrium may not be the easiest task today, but if anyone can do it, you can, dear Virgo. You may find that strong opinions from others may be cropping up and challenging your ego. You have a great deal of ammunition in your arsenal and you will find that you can learn quite a bit by accepting this challenge and engaging in a heated debate. Have faith in yourself.

Today will be like playing a game on your home field, dear Scorpio. You have fans out there supporting you and you know the territory. Take advantage of the little things that you have going for you. There is a dramatic force at work that may be erratic, but extremely powerful as long as you can maintain control. Stay focused on your goals. True happiness is only a small step away!
