Your numbers are 7, 18, 20, 24, 35, 37, 42.
Aries (March 21-April
19): Don’t stop moving. You will do your best if you don’t have idle time to overanalyze what’s going on around you. Stay focused on your responsibilities and taking care of unfinished business. Avoid a run-in with a friend or relative. ★★★★★
Taurus (April 20-May
20): It’s up to you to assess your situation and make an adjustment if you aren’t happy with the way things are going. Take control and open up a dialogue with whoever is going to be affected by the action you take. ★★★
Gemini (May 21-June
20): Emotions will surface if you feel you can’t trust someone. Don’t hesitate to take a step back from someone you have doubts about or who is showing signs of disinterest. Your intuition is working on your behalf; follow the signs. ★★★
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Social events will open up a window of opportunity. Get out and meet and greet people who are doing things you want to pursue. Gather information, share your thoughts and begin the transformation required to follow your dream. ★★★
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Be careful who you share information with. Not everyone will respect your privacy. Listen and observe what others do and say, and you’ll gain far more insight into how to proceed. Don’t take on more than you can handle. ★★★★★
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let an emotional situation at home get you down. Look for the positive in whatever comes your way, and you’ll find a way to benefit. Personal improvements will make you feel good, and socializing will boost your confidence. ★★
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make changes at home. Clear a space for a project you want to start or take time out to visit a friend or relatives you find comforting. A little encouragement will make a difference to the way you approach a pending problem. ★★★★
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Let the past be your guide to deciphering what’s going on in your personal life. If a situation appears to be unstable or untrustworthy, open up a discussion that will encourage whoever is involved to resolve matters once and for all. ★★★
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotional situations will surface if you or someone you are dealing with isn’t being upfront about feelings, intentions and plans for the future. Ask pertinent questions, and own up to what you really want to see happen. ★★★
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make alterations that will improve your living space. The changes you institute should be conducive to making not only you happy, but also someone you love. A personal contract will put your mind at ease. Romance is encouraged. ★★★
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take a moment to consider what you can do to help someone without going into debt or being compromised emotionally, mentally or physically. What you do has to be a safe solution for you as well as for everyone else involved. ★★★★
Pisces (Feb. 19-March
20): An emotional question will weigh heavily on an important relationship if you or the other person cannot answer honestly. It’s important to share your feelings, find out where you stand and make an adjustment to improve your life. ★★
