You come to terms with situations that have been a thorn in your side. A time when you travel for pleasure and do some of the things you have long wanted to do. ARIES Mar 21 to Apr 20 SOMEONE makes a promise and reneges. People reneging doesnt impress the ram, you never go back on a promise. Well, you seldom go back on a promise. SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 to Dec 22 YOUR mind is on money. This is probably because you have given your credit cards and savings such a hammering you wonder if they will ever recover. VIRGO Aug 24 to Sept 23 GOOD stars for romance. Heres your chance to cast off the Ice Maiden image so arrange a matinee or send the kids to Nan and Pop for the night and let nature take its course. CAPRICORN Dec 23 to Jan 20 SOMEONE will come up with an idea they truly think is brilliant but the idea doesnt impress you. The chances are you are right but sometimes it doesnt pay to make a big show of it. GEMINI May 21 to Jun 21 FOR some time now people have had problems getting through to you so today you do something to make sure their requests are heard. Make sure you understand the requests. TAURUS Apr 21 to May 20 ITS just as well the bull is the practical one because today brings vibes where people will tend to lean on you and you will be expected to make their decisions for them. LIBRA Sept 24 to Oct 23 SOMETHING grinds to a halt. This wont impress you because you thought it would go on for ages but at least you have the consolation of having a replacement. AQUARIUS Jan 21 to Feb 19 THE water bearer is always articulate and today is a time when you are exceptionally articulate. Still you cant manage to get your message across. Some tricky stars. CANCER June 22 to Jul 23 YOU have good stars for being in public and speaking in public. Now all you need is an audience, which wont be as easy as it sounds. Ring one of the call-back radio stations and air your views. SCORPIO Oct 24 to Nov 22 FOR a nice change there are good stars for being with relatives or in-laws. You dont seem to be doing anything special, just hanging out but the overall vibes are good. Todays babes THIS babe is cheerful, good tempered and hopeful. He or she is sociable, friendly and generally will be well-liked. He or she is likely to have two serious and long-lasting attachments. PISCES Feb 20 to Mar 20 THE new year is just starting and you feel a need to do something different. The good news is that today brings the right stars for starting something for which you will become famous. LEO Jul 24 to Aug 23 IF WORK contains an element of creativity or artistry, you will be keen to return to work. However the chances are work isnt on today so you just have to wait.
