ZODIACAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR TODAY
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Remain sensitive to others' feelings today. You're inclined to take liberties with friends and transgress good taste. In trying to act sophisticated you really put on airs and appear vain.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't mix romance with your job. Emotional frustration and excitement combined make you speak and act out of turn. You're challenged to behave appropriately and retain dignity. Emotional attachments are hard to sort out.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You want to attract someone by being clever and witty. All too easily, you can become negative and sarcastic. It takes an effort to avoid this and instead find what you have in common through genuine conversation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You are sensitive to signs of disloyalty today. You can interpret disagreement as opposition. Don't be so autocratic. Some may encounter stiff resistance or punishment from people in power.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You're very good at pulling people together today. You provide inspiration, reminding people why they're there to begin with and what needs to be accomplished. You try your best to include everyone.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You feel a need to assert independence now. To make the point, you're liable to speak badly to people, to drive them away. You must be assertive, without making lasting enemies.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your emphasis on stability stifles necessary reforms. Putting your power first only generates more resentment on top of what already exists. You must bend lest you create forces that break you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You're feeling ill-at-ease in some environments, especially at home. You want to reduce clutter, make space, make rooms more inviting. You end procrastination now. Make good use of your burst of energy and motivation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A failure to anticipate problems puts you in sudden hot water. Be mindful of your objectives so you can anticipate needs and possibilities. By being prepared, you can meet any situation without worry.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your strength and resolve are tested today. You're prone to see situations in terms of you versus them. You should reconnect with your duties to serve and to facilitate. It's not your authority at stake but your right use of it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You're concerned about appearances today. For some, the right clothing is necessary to convey credibility. For others, it can be seen that honesty is the best policy. You must make the truth attractive.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): People can see you as out-of-control today. You are passionate but you must make an effort to have different points of view. You can be too absorbed in a narrow and selfish outlook.
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.
