ZODIACAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR TODAY
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You take an interest in social issues now, especially how you might make a financial contribution. Many can find ways to switch to eco-friendly and less-expensive technologies.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You try to be as congenial as possible but you also become introverted and assess how well situations fit into your sense of right and wrong. It is difficult to be confrontational, so you try to gently lead others to do what's right.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You tend to feel responsible for situations when you aren't. You are challenged to understand the limits of your ability to influence people and events and to understand which are realistic and which are fanciful.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You want to attract opportunities to you. Strategies range from creative visualization to trying the right clothing. Some may have trouble simply letting go of failed past strategies.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You attract a great deal of attention, both personally and professionally. People are looking to you for solutions and it may be that you know the answer but have to get all sides to negotiate toward the right answer.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You feel an urgency to learn something new today. A socially or environmentally responsible skill is uppermost in your mind today. You want to prevent breakdowns, promote repairs and upgrades.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You feel responsible for a legacy today. You may need to manage what someone else has gathered or you pay close attention to your own collection. You have great concern for what is being left for others to take care of.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are challenged to handle two seemingly contradictory urges: You don't want to upset the status quo but you also want to rectify injustices. You must place yourself into unpleasant situations and make things right.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You need to be responsible for your health today. It's important to eliminate contaminants from the environment and from your food. A more natural way of living should be started now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have strong opinions about current topics of popular culture now. For some, a strong romance can develop. You're highly sensitive to colors and appearances now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may have trouble thinking outside of habits or old traditions. You can be challenged to respond to situations by thinking creatively. Something unfamiliar can be interpreted as being wrong.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You feel you have to all the facts but your main task is to present them in ways that are understandable. You need to be able to turn what's unfamiliar into something people can feel comfortable with.
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.
