ZODIACAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR TODAY
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Feelings are harsh today. Someone wants to be in control and will do almost anything to achieve it. You need to be prepared to stand up for yourself without being as ruthless as anyone who would victimize you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You want to make a good impression and do a good job. You're willing to endure a lot to see projects to completion and perfection. The day favors learning and travel.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You require a large group of people around you, the better to stand out and be noticed. You want to lead but more than that you want to take people someplace where they can feel fulfilled.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): It's very important to treat people fairly. The wrong move could create a vindictive reaction. Your actions must have good reasons to back them up, which must be made clear to all involved.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are, in some way, a personal trainer today. You have a good idea of how to teach someone. You meet someone who wants to be like you or who needs to be shown how to achieve the same as you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): People are attracted to you because you can articulate what's already on their minds. You need to stay genuine and speak only for yourself, however. You could become trapped by trying to be what others want you to be.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You feel as if you're in a prison and can't get out. Your options are limited and the chains of obligation, guilt and shame are strong. You are highly challenged to break free of them and live more free and more honestly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There is a great need to share information and probably just as great resistance to do so. Someone with a need-to-know mentality is hard to convince that you really do need to know it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are highly sensitive now. You desire approval and can feel crushed by disapproval. You must remain low-key and undramatic. Becoming the center of attention could turn out bad.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You feel a strong need to protect yourself today. In most cases, this is simply protecting your vested interests but, in many cases, this could also mean protecting your reputation, your possessions or your person.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Issues of personal integrity are important to you now, especially since it seems in short supply. However, don't alienate people with unfounded suspicions. You need to work on feeling and cultivating trust.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If you are preoccupied by money, then you aren't managing it well. A good investment should be taking care of itself, by and large. You must endeavor to set your money on a path that needs only occasional tweaking.
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.
