ZODIACAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR TODAY
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You are prone to trust people's better nature and truthfulness, which may not be very justified. You need to be alert to deception, to lies by omission. You must make analyses to see past the obvious.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are in relationships in which people can love you or hate, take you or leave you. You can be too intense for many. Ease up and learn to relax from the easy-going people you know, without losing your edge when it's necessary.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You must strive to see partners for the kind of people they really are. You can set yourself up for disappointment if you expect them to behave otherwise. Don't test friends and associates.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You're able to think through situations. You can combine reason and intuition if you try. It's important to retain old information so that you don't have to obtain it again.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can risk honesty in hopes of greater understanding. A change is necessary, as the status quo is untenable. You need to put a relationship on a sound basis from this day forward.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The day is hectic and you have trouble planning ahead because you have to deal with immediate situations. This could make you slip up and cause a crisis in confidence. You're challenged to get ahead of troublesome situations.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can be swept off your feet by a new and exciting love. It is very likely a real person but for some it can be an idea or a cause, or a novel or a movie. You live in imagination primarily today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are easily motivated by the right person or cause. You can be persuaded to put forth extraordinary effort. You must keep your zeal in perspective, however, and be able to relate to people on other issues.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have trouble seeing past details today. You need to open up awareness and vision to a bigger picture and the future. Unpreparedness can create frustration and a sense of helplessness.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You should be seeing the need for greater financial independence. If you are feeling depressed or helpless, then the cause is probably related to money. Carefully sift through options, however unfamiliar.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are feeling emotionally unsettled and may need to take extra steps to maintain steady emotions. It is hard to focus on just one thing. You are emotionally versatile and changeable and need to settle on fewer things for attention.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone could push you in the wrong direction if you're not careful. Follow directions when necessary but be alert when someone wants you to cross an ethical line. Retain responsibility for your actions.
These interpretations are based on the aspects and positions of the planets in relation to each sun-sign. They indicate the general mood and issues of the day as you experience them. Be creative in applying your forecast to the actual circumstances of your life.
