New And Improved HuffPollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For February 17

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.

It's said that you have a dark side. If that does apply to you, then maybe you need to show it today. Possessiveness and jealousy could be factors. At a different level entirely you might benefit from rummaging in old papers. In the process you could bring to light an item that was discarded ages ago and which now has real value. In turn, this could cause you to think about legacies and/or to whom to pass on special information.

Someone from your past could make contact. The might not do this directly either. They may have enlisted the assistance of a relative. Perhaps they're hoping they can build a bridge between you. It is probable that you'll give careful thought to how an old relationship can be repaired or moved into a new phase. Quite separately, you might need to decide whether or not an item is worth the cost of its projected repair.

Though fully aware that certain family matters cannot be ignored, you might still be disquieted about how to handle changing dynamics. Someone's obsession - or apparent possessiveness could cause some anxiety. An old friend's reappearance on the scene may be timely - if expensive: they might suggest you treat yourselves.
