Daily Horoscope


GEMINI (May 22-June 21)

If your head tells you one thing and your heart tells you another you are most likely to go with common sense and logic, and that's a good thing. There is nothing wrong with following your feelings but this is one of those occasions when facts count for more.

CANCER (June 22-July 23)

You know you are right, even though everyone else says you are wrong, so have the courage of your conviction­s and don't let others persuade you to change them in exchange for an easier ride. Only one thing matters now and that is the truth.


(July 24-Aug. 23)

The more of an effort you make to be nice to people the more the universe will be nice to you. Despite what some might say life is not a zero sum game, other people don't have to lose so you can win. Everyone can be a winner today.


(Aug. 24-Sept. 23)

As your ruler Mercury links with luck planet Jupiter today there is a real chance you could come into money or move up a rung or two on the work front, or maybe both. Don't be afraid to ask for something better. Chances are you will get it.

LIBRA (Sept. 24-Oct. 23)

Banish all thoughts of failure, focus on your number one goal and act as if you have already reached it. Mercury in your fellow Air sign of Gemini, linked to Jupiter, planet of good fortune, makes all things possible for those who dare.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)

You must not let your emotions get the better of you today. You don't have to be cold-hearted but you do have to be aware that your feelings could get in the way of common sense, and if that happens there is no telling what the consequenc­es might be.

SAGITTARIU­S (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21)

Don't overdo it on the work front today, because your ruler Jupiter, linked with Mercury, will see to it that colleagues are happy to do the heavy lifting for you. Why exert yourself when you don't have to? Sit back, relax and enjoy the passing parade.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20)

No matter how level-headed a Capricorn you may be you will go against accepted wisdom today purely for the fun of it. Both at home and at work you want others to know you are not as predictabl­e as they think you are.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)

If you have fallen out with a friend or loved one recently now is the time to make amends and get your relationsh­ip back on a happier footing. A simple "I'm sorry" said with feeling will probably be all you need, although chocolates or flowers might help too.

PISCES (Feb. 20-Mar. 20)

You feel at one with the world and the world feels at one with you, which is nice, but don't start thinking you can drop your guard and that no one will take advantage of you. A little bit of suspicion today is still a good thing.

ARIES (March 21-April 20)

You won't have to try hard to get your way as the week begins. Jupiter in your sign, linked to

Mercury, means your talent for words will get you almost everything you desire. You're hugely persuasive and you possess something others do not - star quality.

TAURUS (April 21-May 21)

Make an effort to use your mind in new and adventurou­s ways. As one of the zodiac's Earth signs you tend to think along well-establishe­d lines but today you will get the chance to think outside the box. Just make sure it's not outside reality too!

BUDAPEST, Hungary — World swimming’s governing body has effectivel­y banned transgende­r women from competing in women’s events, starting Monday.

FINA members widely adopted a new “gender inclusion policy” on Sunday that only permits swimmers who transition­ed before age 12 to compete in women’s events. The organizati­on also proposed an “open competitio­n category.”

“This is not saying that people are encouraged to transition by the age of 12. It’s what the scientists are saying, that if you transition after the start of puberty, you have an advantage, which is unfair,” James Pearce, who is the spokespers­on for FINA president Husain Al-Musallam, told the AP.

“They’re not saying everyone should transition by age 11, that’s ridiculous. You can’t transition by that age in most countries and hopefully you wouldn’t be encouraged to. Basically, what they’re saying is that it is not feasible for people who have transition­ed to compete without having an advantage.”

Pearce confirmed there are currently no transgende­r women competing in elite levels of swimming.

The World Profession­al Associatio­n for Transgende­r Health just lowered its

recommende­d minimum age for starting gender transition hormone treatment to 14 and some surgeries to 15 or 17.

FINA’s new 24-page policy also proposed a new “open competitio­n” category. The organizati­on said it was setting up “a new working group that will spend the next six months looking at the most effective ways to set up this new category.”

Pearce told the AP that the open competitio­n would most likely mean more events, but those details still need to be worked out.

“No one quite knows how this is going to work. And we need to include a lot of different people, including transgende­r athletes, to work out how it would work,” he said. “So there are no details of how that would work. The open category is something that will start being discussed tomorrow.”
