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.

Consciously or unconsciously, you could be testing the strength of your relationship with those born under Taurus and Libra. Their desire for harmony could be at odds with your desire to seek the truth. Neither of these friends might have the language to describe potentially negative outcomes. Financial discussions could reach a turning point. You may need to point out what you're owed.

A deal could be struck: though you may need to set boundaries. In sharing responsibilities you might also need to make clear lines of demarcation. Loyalties could be put to the test. You could be reminded of an anniversary and given little time to mark it in style. A group of friends might also need reassurance that you'll be part of their team later in the week.

The strength of a relationship could be tested. You may need to show confidence in the future. This could involve agreeing a financial transaction (a loan?). It may be necessary to make a quick journey to obtain an essential signature. Really good quality notepaper could capture your attention too: possibly causing you to think more generally about your image on paper.

You will be using your charms to impress all the influential people around at work or out in the community. Flattery will get you most places, so keep handing out the compliments. You very much want to be seen in the right places with the right people, socialising in the best restaurants now. Maybe you are opting for companions who are offering status and security rather than real love. Try to be in touch with what you really feel on the inside.

With Venus in your chart area of joint finances and confidential emotional matters for a few weeks, you will be more secretive than usual. Only those closest to you will guess what is on your mind. You do want to dig deeper for better long term answers. You may come across just now as stubborn, insisting on sticking to your own plans. You do need to stand your ground but you also need to be flexible, and compromise where necessary to get agreement.
