ZODIACAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR TODAY
ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is something enticing about tradition today, and what's non-traditional has an allure of its own, too. Sexy magnetism is strong in a case of "opposites attract."
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be smart when preparing a guest list. When in doubt, it's probably wise to seat those with an old beef far apart. A love affair heats up.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A serious attitude makes short work of responsibilities, large or small. Something or someone that's captured your attention is on your mind in a big way today.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): A rush of warm nostalgia colors feelings about an activity, event or relationship today. Intuition, creativity and paranormal sensitivity are each useful in a different way, at different times.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Overcoming an obstacle for the benefit of a friend, neighbor or pet is an admirable use of free time today. In love and romance, "nest" and "nurture" are emphasized themes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Words can be weapons or agents of healing, depending upon choices made today. What is whispered can carry as much weight as what is hollered from the rooftops.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Precision is valuable in financial dealings today, especially where a balanced budget needs to be maintained with special care. Money and friendship mix well with sensitivity and mutual respect.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Emotional health benefits from a status check. Conscientious and honest analysis of your heart can help you drop unnecessary baggage. Some carefree rest and relaxation can help with whatever reboot is in order.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Offbeat people, places or topics easily grab your attention today. There is adventure to be found off the beaten track, and security in the flow of a reliable relationship.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Adamant defense of autonomy may be required today, especially if you are in the company of someone notoriously overbearing. An audience or love interest is happily entertained by improvisations.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The higher you aim the greater the height to which you're able to rise today. Don't be easily discouraged. Every grand idea that comes to fruition seems a little bit impossible when first imagined.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A journey stimulates inspiration today, whether the trip is virtual, actual, near or far. Unrestrained curiosity is an exciting travel companion on an adventure or when doing everyday chores.
These interpretations are based on the aspects and positions of the planets in relation to each sun-sign. They indicate the general mood and issues of the day as you experience them. Be creative in applying your forecast to the actual circumstances of your life.
