ZODIACAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR TODAY
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You have a day in which plans slow and are blocked. Handle money wisely; there may be cause to be suspicious about someone. Your spouse may have a better day and should be the one making financial decisions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your job is very a powerful focus of your attention. Be extremely cautious but not to the point of rejecting anything new or unexpected. You want to work out all the consequences of a change but that's something to be managed not controlled.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can be effective in the work you do, as long as you scale back the scope of your efforts and the number of people you work with. You want to keep it simple; the more emotions you have to deal with, the more you're thrown off balance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You must put a stop to bad habits and character faults today, at least insofar as anybody can see them. You must be extremely disciplined, focused and purposeful toward an important personal or professional goal.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have a very serious attitude today but you aren't very self-expressive. You tend to listen more than talk. It's important that you make substantial contributions that show people what you're capable of.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Some relationships pose problems today. It is difficult to compromise, since the sense of competition is strongly engaged. You must strive to see the other person's point instead of just your own.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You're apt to have a lot of self-doubt today but it's unnecessary. While it seems others are more successful, it's mostly a matter of courage, not simply skill or knowledge. Put yourself forward.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You learn through trial and error today, unfortunately mostly through error. Let yourself make slow progress and try to think ahead very carefully. Make test models before you do anything for real.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You find yourself in constant struggle today. Everything seems hard to start, to continue, to finish. Events and people can be distractions, so you have to set personal goals and enforce limits on what others can demand of you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You're extremely careful today. You want to avoid trouble, so you're very observant of rules and the customs of the people around you. There is a sense of potential danger if you were to cross a line.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You're aware that improved education is essential now but you could be shy about reaching out for it. Don't be embarrassed about admitting there's a lot you don't know. Improvement is the name of the game.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Inwardly, you feel confident but you weaken under tests in the real world. It's important to see your actions as practice so that you can do better next time.
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.
