◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You might have practical concerns about getting money or your fair share of something. Or you might be concerned about your partner’s income. You want to clear up fuzzy details that affect your financial security.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Today you might have to say goodbye to a friend or face a temporary separation. If this is not the case, perhaps you feel restrained when talking to someone. The good feelings are there but you can’t express them. People are a bit cautious.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20 : This is a good day to ask someone older or more experienced for advice. It’s also a good day to hone your skills or develop your technique because you have the patience to keep at it until you improve. (“How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” “Practice!”)
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re busy. You feel enthusiastic about travel plans, publishing, the media and higher education. However, personal relationships are sober. If you’re involved in the arts, the entertainment world or hospitality industry, your concerns are practical and serious.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Discussions with older family relatives will benefit you. They might have advice with practical matters especially concerning real estate. You are hopeful about getting financial support from others because you want to make your home and family more secure.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a curious day because in one way you’re eager to schmooze. However, some discussions, especially with siblings, neighbors and relatives, focus on serious, practical matters. You might want to share your worries with someone. (“Let’s meet for coffee and wring our hands.”) Oy vey.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Work-related travel is likely. Others will see ways to expand something at work. But if it costs too much, someone could put the kibosh on it — practical concerns are important today. (Why is there always so much month left at the end of the money?)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Because Venus is lined up with Saturn in your sign, you feel restrained, especially in love relationships. You might not feel as warm and affectionate as you usually do. Things tend to be serious and sober today.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Optimism is the key to your survival. (It is for all Sagittarians.) Today it’s easy to feel lonely or isolated. Remind yourself this is temporary and soon in the future, you won’t feel like this at all. In fact, you will enjoy inviting people to your home today, even if you don’t think so.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re looking for ways to expand your horizons now. In doing so, you might be able to get good advice from someone older, especially in a group situation. This person could give you advice that affects your future goals. Meanwhile, people in authority are willing to hear what you have to say. Good!
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Something related to earnings or finances is encouraging. Part of you is willing to spend money for vacations and fun social times. However, another part of you is concerned about making a solid, sensible impression on authority figures.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a good day to make extensive future travel plans because you have the discipline and patience to do so. It’s also a good day to seek advice from a teacher, mentor or guru figure about anything, especially studies and higher education.
