The Witness - - BRAINSTORM -

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your heart prefers to fly free, but loved ones ap­pear to be trapped in a cage. Avoid try­ing to get your way, or rush things, or mis­takes will surely fol­low. Take your time and do the job right the first time.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Safety first. Be aware of dan­gers in the work place and make sure you fol­low the rules. Re­main open to new ideas where your bank ac­count is con­cerned. You would be wise to de­lay sign­ing con­tracts or agree­ments.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20): Tame the urge to burn bridges or start a dis­pute. Peo­ple may per­ceive you as cold and cal­cu­lat­ing when you in­tended to be mat­ter-of-fact; wait to make im­por­tant pre­sen­ta­tions. Don’t make ma­jor changes now.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have a nose for fact find­ing, es­pe­cially if it con­cerns com­peti­tors, op­po­nents or ad­ver­saries. A cer­tain some­one is prob­a­bly look­ing for dol­lars and cents rather than un­qual­i­fied af­fec­tion and a last­ing com­mit­ment.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 20): As this New Moon oc­curs, your emo­tional tenor may shift. Dur­ing the up­com­ing 30-day lu­nar cy­cle you might be­come in­creas­ingly aware of how an in­ti­mate re­la­tion­ship shapes up on the bal­ance sheet.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The New Moon in your sign could mag­nify your in­se­cu­ri­ties. You may not feel you are re­ceiv­ing the ap­pre­ci­a­tion and at­ten­tion from oth­ers that you de­serve. You may feel un­able to cope with a tight bud­get.

CAN­CER (June 21-July 22): Fo­cus on be­ing diplo­matic and tol­er­ant. Mis­un­der­stand­ings could oc­cur through a mis­com­mu­ni­ca­tion. A small dif­fer­ence of opin­ion may lead to long term en­mity so avoid squab­bles over mi­nor and triv­ial is­sues.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t mix busi­ness with plea­sure. Your friends won’t ap­pre­ci­ate ef­forts to re­cruit them with a sales pitch and busi­ness ac­quain­tances may be un­com­fort­able with fa­mil­iar­ity. Re­spect per­sonal bound­aries.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Give an inch and gain a mile. A will­ing­ness to co­op­er­ate or com­pro­mise can spell suc­cess. Ex­pend­ing en­ergy on in­ap­pro­pri­ate emo­tions can act like a boomerang. For­give­ness and for­get­ful­ness are the best tools to use.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make your fi­nan­cial dreams come true by uti­liz­ing your tal­ents and keep­ing the coun­sel of only those you trust. Do not re­veal your in­ten­tions un­til you are ready to act upon them or your plans could be ru­ined.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A lit­tle suf­fer­ing might be good for the soul. Some en­coun­ters may seem con­fus­ing or try your pa­tience but your ded­i­ca­tion to con­quer­ing dif­fi­cult tasks will pro­vide great sat­is­fac­tion. Fo­cus on frank dis­cus­sions.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t be dis­cour­aged. When faced with a seem­ingly im­pos­si­ble task, look to those you trust most for guid­ance. Open a dis­cus­sion rather than ask­ing a ques­tion that can be an­swered with a sim­ple “yes” or “no.”
