This includes people who have been slowing you down. ARIES Mar 21 to Apr 20 ONCE again money matters are to the fore. The good news is; the money you are concerned about is not money lost or spent but money you have and intend to keep. SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 to Dec 22 A CHANGE involving work. Maybe they give you a raise in pay that would be a surprise wouldnt it? Dont worry, whatever the surprise, it is pleasant. VIRGO Aug 24 to Sept 23 THERE will be surprise conditions involving people in distant places and somehow education or religion are involved. Someone could even have a mystical experience. CAPRICORN Dec 23 to Jan 20 VERY good vibes for small wins but dont chase the big one because you will waste your money. These stars also bring good vibes for love and romance so you might manage a matinee. GEMINI May 21 to Jun 21 YOU probably expected to have today free to do some of the things lining your in tray but alas, no. Early in the day brings a message which puts the cat among the pigeons again. TAURUS Apr 21 to May 20 THERE seems to be confusion around you to do with some enterprise starting today or maybe about to start. It causes more of a flap than can be reasonably justified. LIBRA Sept 24 to Oct 23 YOU will hear good news about money, probably money in the joint account. It would be nice to win a prize in a lottery or draw. This will happen to a few of the luckier Librans. AQUARIUS Jan 21 to Feb 19 SOMEONE will ask you do to something. This isnt a big ask but they know you have been there, done whatever it is and you know your way around it. Dont laugh at those less skilled. CANCER June 22 to Jul 23 YOU will meet some nice people and do fun things. You probably havent planned anything special for today but these spontaneous happenings are often better than plans. SCORPIO Oct 24 to Nov 22 YOU will hear good news about someone important to you. This person is probably a partner or mate and the news will be something of a surprise. Todays babes THIS is a most intense and interesting person. Will tend to be deeply attached to home and family but at the same time, wanting to be out in the world correcting what he or she sees as wrong. PISCES Feb 20 to Mar 20 ONCE again you seem to be involved in the needs or worries of a neighbour or a relative. This will probably be no more than watching the home while they go on another overnight trip. LEO Jul 24 to Aug 23 YOU will come up with some good ideas, mostly applying to work, ego or prestige and if you follow them up, you could be doing just what is needed to further your career.
