AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
It varies from person to person. Meditation should make you feel more relaxed and centered each time you do it. There are various ways to meditate. The idea is to calm and focus your mind (not empty it as some places teach). The more often you practice, the sooner you will feel it working. It is a wonderful practice that helps us to get more in touch with the universe, recognizing our place within it :D
It's an art of calming and focusing the mind, so that's what you should focus on the most. Also, note that meditation isn't exactly crossing your legs and going "Ohm" repeatedly (although that is a good and traditional method). Many people just focus on calming themselves and focusing their mind, which is your top priority whilst meditating.
To 0908126, no, you don't have to meditate three times a day. It is a personal preference, and whatever works for you. I suggest starting with guided meditations on YouTube to start out, and then ween yourself off to begin to meditate on your own.
It doesn't have to be real fancy, it could be as simple as staring into the distance and zoning out in a peaceful place or laying down and listening to binaural beats.

Eyes of Zeus is correct. Different strokes for different folks! Personally, my mind is like the Indy 500 track. I actually need a fixed visual aid to slow it down, coupled with incense and breathing techniques. I also have hypnotic triggers implanted, should all else fail. Self-hypnosis is not for the faint-hearted, so as Eyes mentioned, perhaps some guided meditation vids on Youtube may be for you.
Best of luck, may you only grow!
I think you have many good suggestions on here although with the youtube videos you may want to make sure to check the poster to try and verify that the person knows what they are doing. Also remember that there is no wrong way to meditate everyone does things a little differently. I personally listen to music as many people do however while most people listen to soft soothing music I crank of some dubstep or heavy metal as loud as I can. So just experiment around. I also agree there is not set times to do "3 times a day" may work for them but you may need more or less.
