Get out-of-doors to ex­er­cise today.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22)

There are many more re­ward­ing days this month than chal­leng­ing. You will be reap­ing the re­wards of your hard work, even though it may only be the good feel­ing that comes when you do your best. You are at your most prac­ti­cal when it comes to deal­ing and work­ing with oth­ers, so don’t hold back. You know just what to do and can act without haste and emo­tion. You may be called on to make use of your com­mon sense. This is a day when you can ex­pect good re­sults from your hard work. A visit to a friend’s home or neigh­bor’s home this af­ter­noon gives you ideas on how you can ex­pand your stor­age space. You may even get to dis­play some­one’s art or hobby if

you learn how to build a few shelves along one wall of your fam­ily room.

Leo (July 23-Au­gust 22)

This could be a chal­leng­ing day. There is an open door to suc­cess and you will find it. Quick an­swers, great wit and a sur­plus of in­sights and so­lu­tions are avail­able to you. You have a good at­ti­tude and oth­ers no­tice your will­ing­ness to lend a help­ing hand, re­gard­less of your own progress. Bal­ance is very im­por­tant. It is good to per­form well on the job but it is equally good to give some of your en­er­gies to­ward build­ing a bal­ance in your life. If you take long work­days and bring your work home, you may find lit­tle or no life is built around re­la­tion­ships or just en­joy­ing other things be­sides work. When you leave work, leave your work be­hind. Tonight would be an ex­cel­lent time to talk about or plan a va­ca­tion.

Virgo (Au­gust 23-Septem­ber 22)

A round-table dis­cus­sion this morn­ing may spur your own think­ing to­ward im­prov­ing your sur­round­ings or life sit­u­a­tions. The busi­ness for which you work may be plan­ning to make some up­dates in of­fice space or per­haps place­ment of of­fices. Ideas are flow­ing and new, in­ex­pen­sive equip­ment or fur­ni­ture gives you ideas that will help your of­fice and your own home en­vi­ron­ment. Talk­ing with a co-worker friend this af­ter­noon you may con­sider a class to ex­pand your phi­los­o­phy. Per­haps a creative writ­ing class, oil paint­ing, sky­div­ing, in-line skat­ing, astrol­ogy, as­tron­omy or some other sub­ject would help to pique your in­ter­est. In­te­rior de­sign is cer­tainly a con­sid­er­a­tion. You may find your­self en­joy­ing a long con­ver­sa­tion with your fam­ily. Things are hap­pen­ing and your ca­reer or path, de­pend­ing upon your own am­bi­tion and drive, is strong at this time. You are able to use good com­mon sense and can feel the trends and make the right moves. You get ahead by tak­ing ac­tion. A part­ner or co-worker is at­tuned to your goals-you will find work­ing to­gether very pro­duc­tive. This should be a fairly easy, calm day that finds ev­ery­thing run­ning in a smooth man­ner. A shop­ping trip this af­ter­noon will give you an op­por­tu­nity to find just what you want for a spe­cial friend. This friend may be mov­ing and you will want to share good wishes for his or her fu­ture in a new place. In this great time of tech­ni­cal equip­ment, you will be as close as a phone call away. Smile . . . It is con­ta­gious. If you are look­ing for some pro­fes­sional advice this monday, you will find an in­ter­ested per­son tuned to your fre­quency. Help or advice is avail­able for the ask­ing. You ap­pre­ci­ate oth­ers who have been suc­cess­ful and may sur­round your­self with those in power-be they politi­cians, of­fi­cials or what have you. Your sense of qual­ity and dis­crim­i­na­tion may amount to some sort of liveli­hood for you. You could make your liv­ing with your good taste. In ad­di­tion, you have an in­nate sense of how to work with and guide oth­ers in mak­ing de­ci­sions. You be­come more in­sight­ful and in­no­va­tive in your ideas and abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate. Unique and un­con­ven­tional ap­proaches to study or re­search may be in the fu­ture. Try a new fish recipe this evening.

Aquarius (Jan­uary 20- Fe­bru­ary 18)

You may be think­ing of di­et­ing today, but you might look through some of the rec­om­mended di­ets for your par­tic­u­lar life style. Make your nutri­tion as bal­anced as pos­si­ble-start on your new diet today! There is no lack of en­ergy or drive here-noth­ing can stand in your way. Ev­ery­thing is poured into mak­ing the right moves and the cor­rect de­ci­sions. You are out­go­ing, en­thu­si­as­tic and al­ways diplo­matic-ev­ery­body’s fa­vorite. You have a nat­u­ral in­stinct for mak­ing the cor­rect move at the right time. Pol­i­tics or some pub­lic ca­reer seems cer­tain. A co-worker may need your advice. You have a no-non­sense ap­proach and are will­ing and able to lend oth­ers your ra­tio­nal advice. You pen­e­trate to the re­al­i­ties and see the ne­ces­sity for ac­cept­ing life as it is.

You are driven when it comes to ful­fill­ing your am­bi­tions and carv­ing out a ca­reer. Your en­thu­si­asm is high and you are mo­ti­vated to be suc­cess­ful. You set the ex­am­ple for oth­ers to fol­low and if you are in re­tail you may find that your cus­tomers come to you just to gain a lit­tle in­sight into their lives as well as to pur­chase an item or two. Your noon break may be a lit­tle later than usual today. A friend or co-worker wants to join you and the con­ver­sa­tion may prove to be in­sight­ful. Life be­comes a lit­tle eas­ier as you ma­ture or as the plan­ets move through the cy­cle; you learn to ask your­self ques­tions that per­tain to truth and re­al­is­tic think­ing. Guard your flow of think­ing to­ward a healthy

bal­ance of study, work, amuse­ment and re­lax­ation.
