HOROSCOPES BY JACQUELINE BIGAR BORN TODAY This year, you might not be as conscious of your words as you might like to be. Note a tendency to give mixed messages. You can only grow from understanding and acknowledging this behavior. You are a very caring individual; it is through commitments to groups as well as individuals that you express this nurturing quality. If you are single, you could meet someone on a trip or when you least expect it. Getting to know this person is similar to exploring a new world. If you are attached, open up to the possibility that you and your mate can both be right about an issue but hold different resolutions. CANCER is a true friend. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) HHHH Zero in on what is going on around you. Listen to and identify with a close friend, loved one or associate. You could feel pressured and might want to cocoon. Feel free to do just that. You will emerge more confident soon enough. Tonight: Relax at home. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) HHHHH You communicate well, and others, for the most part, remain responsive. Your caring and intentions come through. You gain sudden insights and decide to head down a new path. Be willing to share more of your feelings. Tonight: On the phone, in email or visiting over a meal. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) HHH You bloom in the morning, yet by the afternoon, you’ll become more aware of your liabilities if you take certain actions. Express your caring in a manner in which

someone can receive it. Take time to buy a card or another token of affection. Tonight: Your treat. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) HHHH You might drag with fatigue in the a.m., but by the afternoon, you become a force to be dealt with. Charisma, energy and wit intertwine. What was received as a bad idea yesterday now is applauded. Ask yourself what the difference is. Tonight: Only what makes you happy. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) HHH Sometimes assuming a lesser role can be hard on you, but it is your best path in a tension-laden environment. You can regroup, look within to see how you feel, center and take action. The unexpected adds to your insights. Tonight: Perhaps a quiet chat. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) HHHH Zero in on what you want. Understanding evolves to a new level, especially surrounding your co-hosts and friends. Don’t allow a difference of opinion to cause a separation. It would be odd to always think the same way as others. Tonight: With others. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) HHHH A must appearance makes a difference within your immediate circle. People want to know you are there. You might opt to take a leadership role in the pursuit of a cause. Others might have a strange reaction. Tonight: Say “yes.” SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) HHHHH Your imagination will lead you to some unusual solutions. Tame those ideas with a little intellect, and you might be

delighted by the results. Revamp your schedule. Do learn a new technology that might help you live your life better. Tonight: Put your feet up and imagine more. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) HHHHH Deal with others on a personal, individual level if you want a positive outcome. Your attention is flattering and helps others open up. Get to the base of a misunderstanding. Know what you would like as an outcome. Tonight: Dinner for two. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) HHHHH Others command your attention. You might want to complete a project or evaluate a personal or domestic matter. For some of you, this attention revolves around real estate and finances. Learn to let go a little more easily -- for your sake. Tonight: Sort through invitations. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) HHHHH Funnel your creativity into your daily life, especially your work. You might be delighted at the long-term outcome. Others also will feel freer to express their thoughts as you proceed with a new vitality. Don’t take someone’s reaction personally. Tonight: Take care of yourself. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) HHHH Let your creativity emerge. Deal with a problem person in another fashion. Understand that everyone has different styles. This person means well, even if he or she creates an uproar. Use care with a money risk. Tonight: Allow more fun in.
