Friends in need or some­thing you be­lieve in that will suf­fer from a lack of your sup­port is an is­sue that comes to your at­ten­tion later this af­ter­noon. You may be called upon to lend a hand. You may be quite pleased to be asked and in­cluded in some help­ful act that you know will make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence. Af­ter ev­ery­one set­tles down a cel­e­bra­tion can be en­joyed. A shared mas­sage with your mate would be fun later tonight.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22)

Tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for your ac­tions is the up­per­most con­cern at this time. Make sure that you can fol­low through on some­thing be­fore you vol­un­teer for ex­tra duty at work or you con­sider stay­ing late to work. Give your­self time to think be­fore you act. It is amus­ing how many ex­cuses you hear from oth­ers when they are asked to do things. Ex­tra­or­di­nary things hap­pen when the ex­cuses stop and ac­tion be­gins. You may be think­ing that it might be fun to cre­ate a lit­tle bath­room book of ex­cuses from the of­fice. Here is where you could make a lit­tle ex­tra in­come. Fast walk­ing, danc­ing with a loved one or tak­ing a dance class is a big plus this evening. You will find

this fun bit of ex­er­cise is a great way to strengthen and firm your body.

Leo (July 23-Au­gust 22)

It takes much en­ergy and drive for start­ing some­thing or tak­ing care of busi­ness; it’s very phys­i­cal too. If you do not have shoes that ben­e­fit you, it may be time to study on the op­tions that are avail­able and pur­chase shoes that will see you through the work day suc­cess­fully. Your at­ten­tion this af­ter­noon is on a cou­ple of in­trigu­ing cus­tomers or clients. Just give them a lis­ten­ing ear; you will know just what to say in or­der to help them. If you are shop­ping for those shoes this af­ter­noon, add some mu­sic to your list. Ex­er­cise or ro­mance is in or­der tonight. Pay at­ten­tion to how you di­rect your en­er­gies and emo­tions-you are en­thu­si­as­tic when it comes to com­pe­ti­tion and there may be a fun sur­prise for the win­ner of a quiz.

Virgo (Au­gust 23-Septem­ber 22)

Ma­te­rial things and the whole con­cept of value take on more im­por­tance for you at this time and you con­cen­trate on your work and aim for the re­sults: fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity and en­joy­ing the finer things in life, ap­pre­ci­at­ing and cre­at­ing things oth­ers long to have. Big ideas and grand vi­sions may play a lead­ing role in your life. Mys­te­ri­ous or mys­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion fires your imag­i­na­tion. Keep a cau­tious mind-do not be­lieve ev­ery­thing you hear. You may hear about a large sum of money that you could re­ceive if you par­tic­i­pate in some easy-sound­ing task that would seem to cost you noth­ing. Run as fast as you can in an­other di­rec­tion. Now . . . Keep your pos­i­tive think­ing to­ward your work and you will have your own re­ward. This is the time of year in which you and your fam­ily might be plan­ning a big garage sale for the week­end. Work­ing this day takes pri­or­ity and you work to keep your mind on your work. The or­ga­niz­ing of this garage sale will need to be hap­pen­ing af­ter work. You could add in a few wrapped ideas for hol­i­day gifts and make them sur­prise items. This could con­sist of col­or­ful blank writ­ing tablets, thank-you notes, pig­gy­banks, etc. Price them fairly and wrap them with a lit­tle dec­o­ra­tion. Later tonight you and a friend may get into the dis­cus­sion of pur­chas­ing a new ve­hi­cle. Per­haps you will be able to buy a car in the spring . . . This win­ter is for fam­ily. You can demon­strate great sen­si­tiv­ity to the needs of oth­ers and you seem to know just how to help. Pro­fes­sional ad­vice works in your best in­ter­est at this time. Some hint of a guide to help you with your busi­ness or your ad­vance­ment in the work­place. This is a good time to make some changes and reach new lev­els of ac­com­plish­ment. You can han­dle what­ever is pre­sented for your ad­vice or at­ten­tion. You may look back on this time as very transforming. There are new ideas that are for­ward think­ing and mo­ti­vat­ing. You may learn things now that al­ter your view­point. If you take in­for­ma­tion flow­ing to you now, one at a time, you can elim­i­nate a lot of stress. Tonight is a fun night and you have the cam­era ready for all the dec­o­ra­tions and cos­tumes. A party has been planned and you have a lot of fun prepar­ing for the party and at­tend­ing the event.

Aquarius (Jan­uary 20- Fe­bru­ary 18)

You prob­a­bly do not have to worry about your weight, but still-you might be in­ter­ested in new trends and what peo­ple are do­ing to stay healthy. There is a lot of talk among co-work­ers and tips with sugges­tions are easy to find. You are in­ter­ested in what peo­ple are do­ing dur­ing this win­ter fes­ti­val time but you are also care­ful in how you cull through the la­bel of in­gre­di­ents. Stress is much eas­ier to wade through if your body is up to the climb. Check out the large health food stores that have fresh food and watch what those healthy look­ing cus­tomers are or­der­ing. Check out the hearthealthy diet. This is a nice day that should just flow along. In par­tic­u­lar, you will do well in work and in pro­jects around your home.

High-level dif­fer­ences of opin­ion or out­look rep­re­sent an im­por­tant area of change. Fresh in­sight comes to you through mass me­dia, giv­ing you a new per­spec­tive. You want to get things or­ga­nized, and you have the ini­tia­tive to do it. This is a time of am­bi­tion and re­spon­si­bil­ity, a time to keep your cool and pace your­self. This af­ter­noon your pres­ence is re­quested. Chil­dren are get­ting used to your help­ful ways and your sugges­tions are needed to find the last minute cos­tume or face paint art. An im­por­tant re­la­tion­ship, per­haps with a young per­son or some­one in your near en­vi­ron­ment, may come into fo­cus as well. A bit of praise is most im­por­tant. You have a lot of en­ergy for prac­ti­cal

de­ci­sions, but take care that you do not come across too strong.
