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.

Financial matters could come to the boil. A speculative partnership might now require urgent attention. A younger person may be involved. It might be as well to remember that this is one of the more extreme days of the year. This might not be the best moment for making decisions that have long term implications. The needs of a good friend who lives far away could provide perfect displacement activity.

Fears could multiply. You could see today as some sort of test of faith. A partnership might also be put under pressure. The positive side of this is that it's unlikely that matters will be swept under the carpet. Indeed, it's more likely that great effort will be put in to finding logical solutions to difficulties. In particular, the best way to communicate with those are at a distance might be addressed.

A close partnership could be put under temporary pressure. It's possible that you are both trying to manage considerable detail. In order to maximize a special offer, you may need to take urgent action. News from far away might also require swift response. If this involves a new partnership or agreement on a design, levels of anxiety could rise. The good news is that a friend born under Leo or Aquarius could give essential support.

You might have to do a bit of adjusting today in order to experience a harmonious understanding with the people around you, dear Leo. Adopt a more feisty and aggressive attitude towards love and romance if you want to receive any attention at all in that area. Feel free to shoot for the Moon. Sitting back and laying low will most likely get you absolutely nowhere. Take the initiative yourself; be brave, and go out on a limb.

Your love life is a kaleidoscope of shapes and colors today, dear Virgo, full of complicated patterns and ever-changing displays of beauty. Everywhere you turn, a new perspective is revealed, and you learn something new about yourself and the people you are involved with. Remain open to the idea of partnership on multiple levels in which you experience different levels of commitment with different people. Every color is needed to make a complete rainbow.

oday is a very powerful day for you, dear Scorpio. You may find yourself going to extremes in certain areas of your life, especially when it comes to your romantic nature. You may find yourself being pulled way over to one side, and then way over to the other. At first you may be giving it your all, and the next minute, you may be completely withdrawn. Try to find a balance in this game of yo-yo.
