You look for new and dif­fer­ent ways of self-dis­cov­ery and trans­for­ma­tion. In a bazaar or art-fes­ti­val type of at­mos­phere this af­ter­noon, you en­joy the live mu­sic and out­door fun, es­pe­cially with some­one you love. This may be a good time for a photo ses­sion.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22)

Me­an­der­ing through the art show or the com­mu­nity fair with young peo­ple, you find ways to spend as lit­tle as pos­si­ble of your en­ergy or your money. To­day presents good op­por­tu­ni­ties to teach young peo­ple about al­lowances, pay­checks and bud­get­ing. You get many new ideas for up­com­ing hol­i­day gifts. Later to­day, among friends and rel­a­tives, you en­joy ex­press­ing your ideas as well as lis­ten­ing to new ideas re­gard­ing sub­jects you like par­tic­u­larly well. Po­lit­i­cal, lec­tur­ing or teach­ing con­cerns could be in­volved with this need to com­mu­ni­cate. You may find your­self run­ning an er­rand for a fam­ily mem­ber this evening. You can demon­strate great un­der­stand­ing

of the needs of oth­ers. The beauty of a sun­set is en­joyed this evening.

Leo (July 23-Au­gust 22)

This morn­ing you be­come ab­sorbed in re­view­ing the job search part of the news­pa­per. Your ca­reer should be men­tally stim­u­lat­ing and should al­low you to ex­press your orig­i­nal­ity. You may not be ready to change jobs just now but you cer­tainly check out the list­ings each week. Who knows, there may be some stim­u­lat­ing pro­fes­sion out in the world, just wait­ing for your ex­per­tise. Your en­er­gies are up and there are many projects in which you will want to in­volve your­self. You en­joy cook­ing, you dive into an art project and you visit and keep in touch with friends. This af­ter­noon you have lots of fun with an­i­mals. This may mean a new an­i­mal has come into your life or you are tend­ing to a neigh­bor’s an­i­mals for a few days.

Virgo (Au­gust 23-Septem­ber 22)

You are open-minded, demo­cratic and en­thu­si­as­tic; you have a def­i­nite sense of mis­sion. You are at home with dif­fer­ent cul­tures, peo­ples and lands. You love to work with, and in, groups and will find your day full of in­ter­ac­tion with all dif­fer­ent types of peo­ple. This could be a day that was set aside for a spe­cial guest with re­gard to your fam­ily, church or tem­ple. Your gen­eral out­look on life is at­trac­tive-peo­ple seek you out to help them with their prob­lems. You are a nat­u­ral coun­selor and may find your­self in­volved in deep dis­cus­sions con­cern­ing the life­styles of oth­ers. Af­ter the week­end chores are done, you en­joy time alone with a spe­cial friend, per­haps a loved one. Ro­mance is pos­si­ble this evening. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion is at a high just now, al­though it may not go the way you wish it would. On the home front there is an urge to try new things that could be chal­lenged. In this case, you may rebel and act at cross-pur­poses to those who care for you-do not push. Do not de­pend on oth­ers for your hap­pi­ness. Cre­ate an at­ti­tude of grat­i­tude and be­lieve it or not, frus­tra­tions will be short lived. Two won­der­ful riches are money and love and you have them both. You may de­sire to choose some­thing flashy that you can give to your loved one. Be wise how­ever, and give your­self time be­fore pur­chas­ing an ex­pen­sive trin­ket too quickly. You cer­tainly have time for young peo­ple this af­ter­noon and may en­joy an out-of-door game. En­joy din­ner out this evening. A news­pa­per ar­ti­cle that you may be privy to to­day puts a chal­lenge in your mind to know more. A new idea or ex­per­i­ment may be pub­lished just to present a chal­lenge or to in­ter­est the reader into re­search­ing the sub­ject fur­ther and per­haps prove the writer wrong-or right. The con­clu­sion of some ex­per­i­ment or project has been an eye opener to new and im­por­tant break­through in­for­ma­tion that will help many peo­ple. You may de­cide to test the find­ings or at the least, you will dis­cuss the find­ings of the writer with an as­so­ciate of yours. Any time we make strong state­ments we re­ally need the proof to back up our words. You are ready to do some re­search. Since you are able to see these sto­ries as a part of a larger story, you en­joy new ideas and stud­ies.

Aquar­ius (Jan­uary 20- Fe­bru­ary 18)

You are usu­ally full of en­ergy and to­day is one of those days that you are asked to vol­un­teer to help a friend; you jump right in with lots of en­thu­si­asm. You have a great deal of con­fi­dence and per­se­ver­ance and are a good friend. This af­ter­noon you show your com­pet­i­tive side while play­ing some sort of trivia or a board game-per­haps you are even pushy. Your de­ter­mi­na­tion to win proves suc­cess­ful. Your am­bi­tions go hand in hand with com­mu­ni­ca­tion and us­ing the mind and the two should never be far apart. You will re­ceive sup­port and af­fec­tion from your fam­ily or part­ner whether you are mar­ried or not. You cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple to like them­selves. This be­hav­ior en­dears you to oth­ers and oth­ers to you in many ways.

In­de­pen­dence, as well as any­thing un­usual or dif­fer­ent, is val­ued. You may en­joy get­ting away from rou­tine and do­ing some­thing un­usual for a change this sun­day. Some­one near you, a neigh­bor, friend or rel­a­tive, may have added re­spon­si­bil­i­ties this week­end. Vol­un­teer some of your time; he or she will be ap­pre­cia­tive. When it comes to fi­nances, you al­ways seem to have an an­gel watch­ing over you. Of course, this does not mean you can throw cau­tion to the wind and take risks. If you wanted to shop for a new win­ter coat or be­gin to pur­chase gifts for the up­com­ing hol­i­day cel­e­bra­tions, this af­ter­noon would be a good time to shop. Your dreams and ideals are the num­ber-one com­po­nent for ac­tion in your chart. Dare to dream!
