SAGITTARIUS 22 NOV – 21 DEC You are at your men­tal best with clear thoughts. This is an ex­cel­lent time to make de­ci­sions and take care of what­ever work is be­fore you. Do not al­low your­self or any­one else to dis­tract you. If you make a deal with your­self to com­plete one task be­fore mov­ing on to some­thing you would rather do, you will be a happy camper. A co-worker friend may want to have lunch with you but keep fo­cused and fin­ish your al­lo­cated task and you will be able to join this friend. This evening some kind of heal­ing process is at work in your life: you iso­late what doesn’t work, elim­i­nate it and go on from there. You may find your­self help­ing some­one care for a child this evening. You may be quite pleased at how quickly you get this child’s at­ten­tion and all of you will en­joy games.

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 19 JAN Work may call for a lit­tle cre­ative writ­ing to­day. This may mean that some­thing is on sale and you are the only one avail­able to change the de­tails on some flyer or win­dow advertisement. This is not nec­es­sar­ily your tal­ent but you may be sur­prised at how well you come to the res­cue. You may carry this writ­ing en­ergy fur­ther as you think about en­ter­ing a type of writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion. With your sense of hu­mor this may in­clude a rid­dle or joke con­test. This is more im­por­tant than you re­al­ize and will show up again later next year. It might be good to have a few col­ored mark­ers avail­able in your desk. This work­day goes well and con­tin­ues to present lit­tle sur­prises here and there. You are flat­tered with a spe­cial sur­prise visit from a neigh­bor or a friend.

AQUARIUS 20 JAN – 18 FEB Your work or ca­reer seems to be a pos­i­tive in your life. The com­pany for which you work is some­thing that you take on suc­cess­fully. You might even con­sider a fran­chise for your­self or a move up to man­age­ment. You can run your own sec­tion like a tight ship and you seem to en­joy the va­ri­ety of peo­ple that pa­rade in front of your view. Your love of truth makes phi­los­o­phy and re­li­gious ideas a life-long habit. Although you do not pro­claim your be­liefs from a moun­tain top, your be­hav­ior and fair play are easy to men­tor to oth­ers. You ap­pre­ci­ate things of a global or uni­ver­sal level and travel or stud­ies of for­eign lands could be a part of this in­ter­est. There is a pos­si­bil­ity that you could help open up a com­pa­ra­ble busi­ness in another coun­try.

PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR A new hobby may prove prof­itable. An outgoing and very ex­pres­sive cy­cle of ex­pe­ri­ence has be­gun now. There is a deep yearn­ing to gain ad­mi­ra­tion and ap­pre­ci­a­tion from oth­ers and find a project that you can do that will win their at­ten­tion and stir their hearts. For those that are sin­gle there is a strong op­por­tu­nity to meet a per­son that would en­joy a large fam­ily. If you are a two­some, there are some op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­large your fam­ily cir­cle. There is a height­ened in­ter­est in health and diet, as well as an urge to get things or­ga­nized into a ra­tio­nal sys­tem. Much men­tal busy­work goes on to­day. Friends, group projects and com­mu­nity con­cerns could play a key role that ef­fects your fu­ture ca­reer di­rec­tion. You will give this much thought tonight.

ARIES 21 MAR – 19 APR You are quick to rec­og­nize that ev­ery­one around your of­fice is good at ex­press­ing grat­i­tude. It is good to see ev­ery­one in a good mood and there is a sense of peace­ful­ness as you en­joy con­tribut­ing to the con­ver­sa­tions about past fam­ily gath­er­ings. It is a fun way to learn about dif­fer­ent in­di­vid­u­als and their fam­i­lies. Team­work is im­por­tant most of this day and this to­geth­er­ness is what en­cour­ages spo­radic con­ver­sa­tions to con­tinue. Work moves quickly and you have a list for shop­ping later. A friend may con­fide in you this evening and you may find your­self think­ing se­ri­ously about the things you have been told. Per­haps this per­son con­fided in you be­cause he or she needed help, rather than be­cause he or she wanted you to just lis­ten.

TAURUS 20 APR – 20 MAY The com­pany for which you work may be try­ing to up­date and im­prove busi­ness. The en­er­gies to­day are lean­ing to­ward an in­cli­na­tion to com­pete. You may find that this mon­day you are an­swer­ing a sur­vey for next year’s of­fice im­prove­ments and they would ap­pre­ci­ate your in­put. Com­pe­ti­tion catches on when team­work or groups com­pete to come up with the best what­ever– or achieve the most work, most prod­ucts sold, most cus­tomers, etc later to­day, you may be able to bring the fam­ily or per­haps a group of your friends to­gether to en­joy a play, mu­si­cal or an art ex­hibit this evening. Close per­sonal ties to other peo­ple are im­por­tant to you. Ro­mance is pos­si­ble this evening, which is cer­tainly a sweet one-on-one time.

GEMINI 21 MAY – 21 JUN If you are in charge you may find that a few changes are in or­der. Too many ques­tions may mean that there is not enough in­for­ma­tion. Look­ing over your depart­ment you may find that there is wasted en­ergy and du­ties could be re­ar­ranged. You may de­cide to al­lo­cate du­ties and have meet­ings at least once a month so that ev­ery­one will see how things are pro­gress­ing and re­ceive im­por­tant praises. The best thing about the meet­ings is to have a ques­tion and an­swer time that will give em­ploy­ees time to have a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of your ex­pec­ta­tions. Within a short while, im­por­tant mat­ters will run quite smoothly. Even­tu­ally the meet­ings will not take much time but ex­pect the first few meet­ings to take a lit­tle time. En­joy a take-home din­ner tonight.

CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL This is a good time for clear de­lib­er­a­tion and solv­ing any busi­ness dif­fi­cul­ties that may arise. This is a vi­tal day in which much en­ergy and ac­tion is uti­lized. You could find your­self in the lime­light or able to re­ally com­mu­ni­cate and get your ideas across to oth­ers. You are in a se­ri­ous frame of mind and may find your­self deal­ing with mat­ters of much con­cern and re­spon­si­bil­ity. A clear-minded in­sight into your pro­fes­sional rou­tine is def­i­nitely a plus and clients trust your opin­ion. This is a very good time to help peo­ple re­al­ize their goals. There is no prob­lem too small or too large; you en­joy your work. This evening you en­ter­tain young peo­ple in some type of sport game. You en­joy in­door sports and may be quite good at bas­ket­ball or hockey games.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG You may find your at­ten­tion drawn to sub­jects like law, pol­i­tics, ed­u­ca­tion, travel or re­li­gion this day. These are cer­tainly some of the ar­eas in which an emo­tion­ally charged drama could be played. You have a sharp mind and your con­fi­dence in your abil­i­ties will be­come stronger as you work. If you are in law en­force­ment, your pos­i­tive in­sight will be help­ful as you work with peo­ple. If you are in ed­u­ca­tion you will be open to hear­ing and catch­ing onto all the trendy words and ac­tions. Stu­dents want to lis­ten to what you have to teach. This af­ter­noon you may find your­self at the li­brary, deep in study. You may en­joy long con­ver­sa­tions, writ­ing a let­ter or mak­ing a spe­cial phone call this evening. A friend may join you as you walk after din­ner tonight.

VIRGO 23 AUG – 22 SEP Do not take chances or risks just now–be sat­is­fied with the or­di­nary and usual. There is too much hec­tic emo­tional en­ergy, es­pe­cially this morn­ing. After your basic work is com­pleted, you may be help­ing a client or cus­tomer as he or she chooses a fab­ric or plans a win­ter va­ca­tion. What­ever the case, the rest of your day has an easy flow. On the way home this evening you may want to stop and look at ex­er­cise equip­ment. This would be a good time to find some­thing you would like to do that would help you firm up and shape up for next year’s new bathing suit styles. A new bi­cy­cle could be suf­fi­cient and when the weather is bad you could put it on a spe­cial rack that would al­low you to ride it as a sta­tion­ary bike. You feel re­newed phys­i­cally this evening.

LIBRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT The home and fam­ily scene is likely to be in a state of change–this may mean mov­ing, an ad­di­tion to the fam­ily, or such. Of course, that means any­thing from leav­ing work a lit­tle early to tak­ing the whole day off from work so that a three-day week­end will af­ford you the ad­just­ment time that is needed. High-tech equip­ment im­pinges on the do­mes­tic en­vi­ron­ment some­how and an ec­cen­tric rel­a­tive at­tracts some no­tice. Har­mony and beauty are very im­por­tant dur­ing this day of change and can help with the tran­si­tion. Flow­ers are al­ways an ex­cel­lent choice for beauty and of course, some ac­cept­able mu­sic through ear­phones is good while you work. Keep a sup­ply of cool, fresh wa­ter and a few healthy fin­ger-food snacks near your main work space.

SCORPIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV At heart, you have a deep sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity and pur­pose and your se­ri­ous­ness to­day is gen­uine and felt by oth­ers. The rea­son for the se­ri­ous­ness may sim­ply be a rush or­der or a loud and de­mand­ing client or cus­tomer. You can han­dle what­ever dif­fi­culty arises be­cause you have a great deal of com­pas­sion for peo­ple that are dif­fi­cult. Your co-work­ers ap­pre­ci­ate your ef­forts and sup­port you in what­ever you may need. A vis­i­tor to your home this evening may com­pli­ment you on your tastes or be­long­ings. You have unique and un­usual qual­i­ties that help to bring peo­ple to you for learn­ing and shar­ing and sup­port. You could come up with new ideas or so­lu­tions to some re­cent eco­nomic prob­lems in your home. Your fam­ily is sup­port­ive.
