ZODIACAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR TODAY
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Relationships take prime importance today, yet you must also be careful. Take a sober, practical approach now; respect boundaries and limits. Err on the side of caution and ask permission when in doubt.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your serious mood is good in the workplace but can cause difficulty in romance. You place a high premium on personal and professional loyalty, so you’re liable to feelings of betrayal and jealousy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You feel possessive about loved ones. It’s good to be protective but don’t take it to extremes. Excessive fear could make you close off opportunities for growth in your dependents.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You turn your attention to studying people’s behavior. You pay attention to more than their words, such as expressions and body language. You’re not satisfied unless all the behavioral clues are consistent.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are able to do more with less today. You can see the beauty in simplicity and organize your day accordingly. Since you want no frills, you want to get to the bottom line very quickly in all things.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You strive to combine emotional closeness with seriousness. Some can actually pull it off but it is an unstable mix in most people. You tend to show that you care by what you do, not through intimacy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You have cause to feel anxious and uncertain today. A health problem can emerge or a reason to think you may have one. It’s important to address factual concerns and to take measures to eliminate needless fears.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are teetering on the cusp of success or failure professionally or financially. It’s important to take a realistic look, yet one that allows hope and expansion instead of simple cutbacks.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You want authority but not scrutiny. Be very careful with your behavior, as anything negative could be brought to light. You have admirers and detractors and both could endanger you unless you’re careful.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have trouble balancing theoretical issues of right and wrong with issues of practicality. You are challenged to keep your efforts within what’s socially acceptable while working in morally gray areas.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You compare your personal values with others’ today. You can have cause to be sad or remorseful. A loss can result in a gain but such that you have to wonder whether it’s worthwhile.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Relationships are the means by which you learn important lessons. Mostly, you learn what not to do in the future but you can draw conclusions about doing the opposite instead.
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.
