◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a great day to explore hidden ways that might improve your health. “Secrets” (or things you never thought about before), might suddenly make sense — and these things could impact your vitality or general sense of well-being. Good day for research as well.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You might meet someone powerful, passionate and seductive today. (Ooo la la.) Because of this, you might instantly develop a crush or fall in lust. However, this same powerful influence can make you aggressive in sports or effective in dealing with children today.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look for ways to make improvements at home, especially in areas related to plumbing, bathrooms, laundry, garbage and recycling. Clean up anything that is looking tawdry. (Especially in dark places that are easy to ignore, mainly because they’re disgusting.) Not appealing, I agree. But this is the day to do it!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Because you are so persuasive, you will be successful in almost all of your discussions with others. Naturally, that makes this a special day for those of you who sell, market, teach, act or write. You have power with your words today — and you’re convincing!
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look for ways to boost your income or make a little money on the side. You might even see a new job on the horizon. Others will see new uses or applications for something you already own. (Yes, you can make a lamp out of practically anything.)
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a serious look in the mirror and ask yourself what you can do to improve your appearance. How can you create a better image in your world? After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your powers of perception are excellent, in addition to which your ability to concentrate and focus on details is equally good. This means this is a great day for you to ferret out the truth of something or do intensive research. “Gotcha!”
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might meet someone today who is powerful, almost scary. (“Hi Darth.”) Or, possibly, you will be perceived as powerful, even intimidating, by someone else? Yes, it’s a day for powerful people to throw their weight around while maintaining dignity at all times.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are coming on so strong today, you might be threatening to a boss or supervisor or perhaps a parent or teacher. Be aware of this. Possibly, you will find someone else a bit too much to handle. Nevertheless, if you see ways to save money, cut costs and improve things — speak up.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Some of you might meet a teacher or guru-like figure today who blows you away with new ideas about religion, politics or philosophical theories. Possibly, you will be in a teaching role to someone else? This could happen both ways.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Discussions about how to share inheritances or deal with tax issues, debt and shared property will be decisive and productive today. You won’t mince words and either will they. People are going to say what they mean and mean what they say!
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You might learn a lot about the inner workings of your close relationships today. In doing so, you might decide that you want to reform or improve your style of relating. This is the first step to making a better impression on others, isn’t it?
