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.

There may now be much that you need and want to say. It may be that someone has tested regulations and systems to the full. There may be an international element to this. Even so, your ability to ask the right questions could result in information coming to light about issues that out to have been dealt with some weeks ago. A response to a letter sent recently could throw yet another challenge in your direction.

Property matters may have already come to a head. Now though, a situation could arise that tests a legality. A curious twist in your professional life is likely too. You might even find yourself at the heart of an international incident. A clash of cultures, or the way in which someone chooses to interpret the law might require you to re-think your position.

A legal challenge could come your way. A friend or colleague, born under Leo might also be affected. You may not wish your affairs to be made to public. They on the other hand, might appear to be enjoying the drama of the situation. This could be one of those rare days when you are left tongue-tied. In this condition however, you are likely to be particularly observant and could spot a loophole that others have missed.

Today is a day in which you should work to tune into the larger, slower moving trends in your life, dear Leo. Consider making some long-term investments, both monetary and emotional. There is a great deal of prosperity available to you now, but beware of being deceived by others. Watch out for fast talkers and people who promise everything yet deliver nothing. Have confidence that you can decipher what is real and what's not.

Allow your artistic nature to let loose today, dear Virgo. Add a touch of creativity to whatever project, situation, or person you encounter. Let your fantasy world extend into every aspect of your being and keep an open mind to new ideas and methods. Incorporate traditional values into new concepts. The new and the old methods may seem incompatible at first, but it is your challenge to make them work together.

Get things out in the open today, dear Scorpio. If it seems like someone is insulting you, call him or her on it. Letting things fester inside will only result in the destruction of your own self-esteem. You would also be in danger of losing the respect of the people around you. This could very well be one of those situations in which everyone else sees the truth except you. Try not to let this happen. Be bold and assertive, and don't let others pull the wool over your eyes.
