HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Keep reaching out to someone you care about. This person has many diverse ideas and also can play devil’s advocate far more easily than you might think. Pressure builds. If you run into a difficult associate or a frustrating situation, you easily could get angry. Tonight: Rent a movie. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Deal with a partner directly. You might feel as if he or she is blocking many of your ideas. Resist getting confrontational; however, do not hesitate to support yourself and your decision if someone starts questioning you. Tonight: Talk over dinner, then choose a favorite escape. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Others give you their opinion of this and that. Be polite, even if you don’t agree. You could decide to play devil’s advocate, but what will be the cost? Maintain a sense of humor. A matter involving your home could trigger you. Tonight: Be friendly.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’ll dive into a project without hesitation. You might not like the manner in which certain questions are being asked. Say so and get down to the real issue. Until that point, concentrate on one item at a time. Tonight: First relax, then decide. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Use your energy and intellect to make a point. Someone would be hard pressed to contradict you, especially with your commanding style. You tend to see matters from a different point of view, and you have more information as a result. Tonight: Touch base with a loved one. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Listen to your inner voice and be direct with your feelings. A family member could be irritable. An issue involving your domestic life could arise. Check all the information given and evaluate possible solutions. Take a walk if you’re feeling cranky. Tonight: Be creative. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You are likely to say what you think. Fortunately, you have
the gift of choosing the right words in order to avoid insulting someone. However, one person whom you deal with reads you a little too clearly for your taste. Be careful. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might be more aware of your finances than most others are. You will want to verify some facts that revolve around this issue. Hold out as long as you can, but know that pressure from others won’t allow you to go too long. Tonight: Check your email and return calls. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You would be on cruise control if you weren’t continually bumping heads with a higher-up. This person has a lot of frustration and anger that, unfortunately, might be directed at you. You can deflect only so much. Tonight: Try to avoid sharp words. Indulge yourself a little. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might keep hearing information that normally would get you going or acting on it; however, right now you are digesting
everything you are being told and attempting to sort fact from fiction. Trust in your abilities. Tonight: You feel better as the night goes on. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Focus on a meeting if you are at work. If you are free, friends will play a significant role in what happens. In your enthusiasm, you might forget about a partner. Do not let this happen if you really want to make the most out of the moment. Tonight: Join friends first. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You could feel pressured by others’ demands. You will want to make a change, but you might feel somewhat inhibited. A partner has been unusually difficult as of late. You might want to play the waiting game rather than provoke his or her ire. Tonight: Make plans with friends. BORN TODAY Actress Daryl Hannah (1960), singer Ozzy Osbourne (1948), psychologist Anna Freud (1895) ***

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My husband and I are in our early 80s. We have four children. “John” and “Susan” are from my first marriage. They were very young when my first husband died and I remarried. I then had “Jane” and “Alice.” On my most recent birthday, Jane took my husband and me to our favorite restaurant. Jane also invited Alice, who lives in a rental on our property. (Susan lives in another state.) Alice posted on Facebook what a nice dinner we had. The next morning, Susan called Alice at 4 a.m., screaming, “Why didn’t you invite John?” She then proceeded to call me and scream. I was shocked. I sent her an email later and asked why she was so upset. I love John, but he has made a mess of his life. He is a bully and has had confrontations with everyone in the family. We recently found out that John molested Alice when she was 5 years old. Alice is cordial when she is forced to be around him, but John has never admitted or apologized for his actions. My older kids are not terribly reliable. We named Jane executor of our estate because Susan is a heavy pot smoker and quick-tempered, and John cannot be trusted. It breaks my heart, but that’s the way it is. Susan hasn’t spoken to me in months. I now believe she and John have always been jealous of my younger daughters. Even though my husband raised them all, Susan has said hurtful things about him. She also says I “never wanted” her. This is completely untrue. I pine for Susan every day, but I refuse to phone her because of the awful things she says to me. My husband says we only have a few years left and we should enjoy them. What do you think? -- Heartbroken Dear Heartbroken: It is not unusual for children, even grown ones, to harbor resentments and jealousies against younger siblings, particularly when those siblings are from a different marriage. While your older kids could have benefited from family counseling at the time, there’s not much you can do about that now. We suggest you send Susan a letter or an email, simply saying that you love her and always will, that you are sorry for the rift, and that you hope someday her anger will pass. Meanwhile, please have Alice contact RAINN (rainn.org) at 1-800-656-HOPE. Being cordial to her molester may be harder on her than you think. Dear Annie: I was taught that “RSVP” stands for “please respond.” But these days, huge organizations (often charities) send mass-mailed invitations to hundreds of people, some of whom have little connection to the group and may live so far away that it would be extraordinary if they attended. I always write a note sending my regrets, because this has been ingrained in me. But I also worry that the functionary who receives my note wonders, “Who is this anachronism living in the past century?” Do the charities really expect the non-attendees to RSVP that they will not be there, or do they merely seek a head count? -- Don’t Want To Be Old-Fashioned Dear Don’t: They want a head count, but an RSVP saying “no” is equally appropriate. And we are certain they appreciate (and marvel at) an actual handwritten response by someone who is well-mannered enough to send one. Bless your heart. Dear Annie: Please tell “Polly Positive” that she and her husband should attend a cancer support group. After my husband was diagnosed with cancer, we joined two cancer support groups. We get a lot of information from the survivors and are able to give advice to the newly diagnosed. I can’t stress strongly enough how important support groups are. -- Big Cancer Support Group Advocate Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
