Remnants of the meteor remain underground, and they are causing headaches for drill engineers. (AP) COMMUTER INNOVATIONS

â€˜Almost a 12-Month Fire Seasonâ€™
Studies: As Earth warms, wildfires are starting earlier
The devastating wildďŹ res scorching Southern California offer a glimpse of a warmer and more ďŹ ery future, according to scientists and federal and international reports. In the past three months, at least three different studies and reports have warned that wildďŹ res are getting bigger, that man-made climate change is to blame, and itâ€™s only going to get worse with more ďŹ res starting earlier in the year. While scientists are reluctant to blame global warming for any speciďŹ c ďŹ re, they have been warning for years about how it will lead to more ďŹ res and earlier ďŹ re seasons. â€œThe ďŹ res in California and here in Arizona are a clear example of what happens as the Earth warms, particularly as the West warms, and the warming caused by humans is making ďŹ re season longer and longer with each decade,â€? said Univer-

Since 1984, the area burned by the Westâ€™s largest wildďŹ res â€” those of more than 1,000 acres â€” has increased by about 87,700 acres a year, according to an April study in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. And the areas where ďŹ re has been increasing the most are areas where drought has been wors-
ening and â€œthat certainly points to climate being a major contributor,â€? study main author Philip Dennison said Friday. The top ďŹ ve years with the most acres burned have all happened in the past decade, according to federal records. From 2010 to 2013, about 6.4 million acres a year burned on average; in the 1980s, it was 2.9 million acres a year. Battalion Chief Kevin Taylor of the Paso Robles Fire Department in

Cabinet Post Could Be Boost for Texas Mayor
Explicit alerts that the material college students are about to read or see in a classroom “might upset them or, as some students assert, cause symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder in victims of rape or in war veterans,” according to The New York Times. The Times reported Saturday about how some colleges — including the University of California, Santa Barbara, Rutgers and George Washington University — have been wrestling with student requests for such warnings in class syllabuses or before lectures. Some students want material to be flagged if it might cause trauma (i.e. contain instances of violence, racism, sexual images, antiSemitism, suicide, etc.). (E XPRESS)
Fort Worth, Texas President Barack Obama’s expected nomination of San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro as secretary of Housing and Urban Development could test the 39-year-old’s ability to navigate Washington ahead of 2016 elections, Texas Democrats say. Since giving the 2012 keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, Castro’s star has been on the rise, with his name often included among possible vice presidential contenders. Castro’s background could be his main selling point. He and his twin brother, U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, grew up on the West Side of San Antonio in a

working-class Mexican-American neighborhood. They were raised by their single mother, a prominent Latino rights activist in the 1960s
and 1970s, and their grandmother, who crossed the border from Mexico as a child. If Julian Castro is nominated to
preside over HUD and conﬁrmed by the Senate, he would become one of the highest-ranking Hispanic ofﬁcials in the Obama administration. “That says a lot,” said U.S. Rep. Pete Gallego, D-Texas. “He carries with him the hopes and dreams and prayers of the entire Latino population.” Gallego also thinks a Castro nomination would galvanize a grassroots effort in Texas to turn the historically Republican-dominated state into a place where Democrats can compete. Obama is expected to nominate current Housing Secretary Shaun Donovan to be budget director, according to people familiar with the selection process. EMILY SCHMALL (AP)

Kazakhstan, too, appears to be nervous. Ofﬁcials there proposed laws last month that would include harsh sentences for calls for separatism. In some parts of northern Kazakhstan, ethnic Russians make up more than half the population. But in Russia, Putin’s vows to support Russians abroad have been met with hearty approval. “We are doing wrong when we don’t respond to discrimination,” said Robert Shlegel, a member of Russia’s lower house of parliament who is on a committee charged with handling relations with Russia’s neighbors. “I think we should be much stronger.” MICHAEL BIRNBAUM

Vowing to defend ethnic Russians wherever they live, President Vladimir Putin has embarked on an aggressive campaign to rebuild the pride and assertiveness of the Russian people, which he says was lost in the breakup of the Soviet Union. A week ahead of a presidential vote in Ukraine that will help determine that nation’s relationship with Russia, Putin has been devoting new power to redressing what he has called the historical tragedy that shattered the Soviet Union into 15 nations. From annexing Crimea to collecting separatist petitions in Moldova to handing out passports to
compatriots in the Baltics, Putin has spent recent weeks focused on neighboring countries, many of which have substantial ethnic Russian minorities. The strategy puts Russia on a collision course with the NATO defense alliance, because two of its members — Estonia and Latvia — have significant Russianspeaking minorities that have long complained of discrimination. The new efforts have helped rocket Putin’s domestic approval ratings to multiyear heights, and they have also inspired some ethnic Russians and Russian speakers abroad. Although Putin’s ambitions appear to fall far short of rebuilding the Soviet Union, the newly nationalist tone is boosting the cohesiveness of Russian-speaking populations in Russia’s neighbors and inside Russia itself. Putin has decried the loss of Rus-
On Friday, as opposition leader Narendra Modi swept to victory and ﬁreworks exploded throughout the capital, the mood at the governing Congress party headquarters was grim. Late in the afternoon, the mother and son who lead India’s oldest political dynasty ﬁnally emerged to speak to supporters and journalists. “There’s a lot for us to think about,” said Rahul Gandhi, the party’s chief campaigner. “As vice president of the party, I hold myself responsible for what has happened.” But then, as he stepped aside, he smiled — some thought with relief. The Twitterverse took note. Gandhi, whose lineage includes three prime ministers, had been
groomed for India’s top job for a decade. But his evident ambivalence about the prospect was among the drivers of the Indian National Congress party’s worst drubbing in its history, analysts said. The party won just 44 seats in the 543-seat lower house of Parliament, while Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party took 282. The stunning defeat has led to a call for the ﬁrst family’s ouster and to questions about whether the country’s long love affair with dynastic politics is ﬁnally over. “When will the leaders realize that feudalism is over, that monarchy is over?” Conservative pundit Surjit S. Bhalla wrote in a piece titled “The Gandhis Should Resign” in the Indian Express newspaper. Still, Sachin Pilot, 36, one of the Congress party’s leaders, counters

that the reality is “not so simplistic.” “Some hard decisions have to be taken” when party leaders gather today to assess the damage,” Pilot said. “We have to ﬁx our shop on many fronts.” ANNIE GOW EN AND R AMA L AKSHMI (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Thousands of people welcomed India’s next prime minister in the capital on Saturday after he led his party to a resounding election victory, with Narendra Modi telling them that the win “created a new confidence among people.” Results announced Friday showed that Modi and the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party had won the most decisive election victory India has seen in three decades, sweeping the long-dominant Congress party from power. The final tally showed that the BJP had won 282 seats in the 543-strong Lok Sabha — meaning Modi will be able to form a government without the support of smaller parties. (AP)

their homes and threatened to inundate Serbia’s main power plant. Authorities organized a frenzied helicopter airlift to get terri-
ﬁed families to safety before the water swallowed up their homes. Many were plucked from rooftops. Three months’ worth of rain fell
on the region in three days. At least two dozen people have died, with more casualties expected. “The situation is catastrophic,” said Bosnia’s refugee minister, Adil Osmanovic. The ﬂoods and landslides raised fears about the estimated 120,000 unexploded land mines remaining from Bosnia’s 1992-95 war. Beyond the danger to Bosnians, any loose mines could also create an international problem if ﬂoodwaters carry the explosives downstream. Experts warned that mines could travel through half of southeast Europe or get stuck in the turbines of a hydroelectric dam.

Next Silver Line Steps Metro may take over this week or next, say some close to project Washington Metro could take control of the Silver Line as early as this week, but the final week of May is a stronger possibility, people involved with the inner workings of the project tell The Washington Post. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to publicly discuss the project. The handover from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to Metro would be the
most signiﬁcant step forward so far in the effort to open the rail line. Ofﬁcials had originally hoped to begin passenger service last December, but a series of delays has forced them to push that date back to this summer. Metro officials said they will offer new details on when they will assume control of the Silver Line during a conference call with reporters today. Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said no decision has been made on a handover date. Once Metro takes control of the project, it will have 90 days to conduct testing and training before it opens the line to passengers. The Tri-State Oversight Committee,
which has oversight of Metro’s operations, also will conduct its own safety review. Ofﬁcials from the Federal Transit Administration must also sign off before the Silver Line opens. The line is being built in two phases. This ﬁrst phase will have four stops in Tysons Corner, Va., and one in Reston. Work has already begun on the second phase, which will have a stop at Dulles International Airport. The Silver Line is the ﬁrst full line to be added to the 38-year-old Metro system in more than two decades. It is also the ﬁrst not built by the transportation authority.

Alexandria Food trucks will get a 16-month tryout in the parks, parking lots, schools and driveways of Alexandria, the City Council decided Saturday, but they won’t be allowed to sell their delectables from the curbsides just yet. The council, in a 4-2 vote, decided to allow a trial period that would start July 1 and last through October 2015 for the popular rolling restaurants. Vendors could set up at local schools, with the principal’s
“Every food truck I see competes to look more garish or ‘hip.’ ” — BOB WOOD, AN ALEXANDRIA RESIDENT, ON THE FOOD TRUCKS PROPOSAL.

permission, at parks and special events with the approval of the city and at private functions at the invitation of the property owner. The decision to allow only offstreet food truck sales was a compromise submitted by the city staff
late Friday, after council members asked for more options. The proposal that was advertised would have allowed food trucks to sell on King Street in Old Town, along Mount Vernon Avenue in Delray and Arlandria, in the Eisenhower/
Carlyle area and all along Washington Street, the city’s portion of the George Washington Parkway. Most of the 50 people who came to testify on the matter were unaware of the change until it was announced from the dais, and although many agreed with the compromise, its last-minute nature did not sit well with those ready to argue against allowing food trucks in historic districts, along congested streets or in curbside competition with rent-paying restaurants.

The costs of major projects have a way of sneaking up — way up
Arlington County officials hoping to spur economic development by launching two new streetcar lines were told Tuesday that the cost of each project has increased substantially since they were first proposed. But the projects are fairly typical in that regard. Major infrastructure projects often grow in both cost and scope during the early planning stages, when engineering details, property acquisition costs and eligibility for federal funding are unknown.

What do Metrorail’s Silver Line, Arlington County’s Columbia Pike streetcar and Maryland’s Intercounty Connector have in common? They have turned out to cost far more than initially projected. And, as often happens in such cases, the public is outraged over the bill. The script — recently playing out in Arlington County after ofﬁcials said last week that the price for the streetcar is $100 million more than ﬁrst estimated — is fairly common. With fanfare, officials unveil plans for a new subway line, bridge or other project that, they promise, will make life easier without breaking the budget. Then, months or years later, they’ll sheepishly admit that the project will stretch the budget a bit. And local residents revolt. “People may think it’s a good idea” until the true costs are known, said John Vihstadt, who recently became the ﬁrst non-Democrat in 15 years to win a seat on the Arlington County Board. He campaigned on a platform of opposition to the Columbia Pike streetcar. To get a project up and running, public ofﬁcials may lowball a cost estimate at the outset, then ask for forgiveness and patience later, said William Ibbs, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley. That’s particularly the case during an economic downturn, when local ofﬁcials hope to create jobs. Other reasons are more complicated and involve economic factors and conditions as far away as China. Because of the massive amount of building going on in that country, global prices for steel, copper, concrete and other materials are

skyrocketing and are often unpredictable, leading to higher-thanexpected costs, said Robert Puentes, who directs the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Infrastructure Initiative. So much so that President Barack Obama on Wednesday downgraded the ofﬁcial estimate of jobs that may be created through every $1 billion of infrastructure spending — to 13,000 jobs from 28,000. Then there are the complexities of building in urban areas, where environmental hurdles and the need to buy up private property can become unanticipated — and expensive — headaches. Construction delays and increases in a project’s scope can also lead
The amount that Boston’s “Big Dig” highway-tunnel project was over budget when it was finished nine years behind schedule in 2007. Cost overruns on major projects go back centuries — including such marvels as Egypt’s Suez Canal, completed in 1869 at a cost 20 times higher than expected, a 2002 study found. (T WP)
to cost creep, said John Porcari, a former Maryland transportation secretary who recently served as deputy U.S. transportation secretary. On a $2.5 billion project, inﬂation alone can add $60 million to $70 million for each year construction doesn’t occur, he said. The cost of Maryland’s 18.8-mile Intercounty Connector doubled during decades of planning, to $2.4 billion, due to inﬂation and environmental mitigation projects. Delays stem most often from permitting problems, changes to a project’s design and shifts in political administrations, Porcari said. The costs of major expenses also are difﬁcult to pin down until much of a
project’s design has been completed. Early estimates allow ofﬁcials to get an idea of public sentiment before they hire consultants to do more detailed analyses, said Geoff Buswick, who studies infrastructure projects for Standard & Poor’s. “It’s good to start the discussion” to gauge support, he said. “You need to put some number out there.” The problem is, taxpayers tend to see those ﬁgures as set in stone. Reston, Va., resident Rob Whitﬁeld said those living near the Silver Line project are frustrated by what has been a $150 million overrun on the ﬁrst phase. Tolls on the Dulles Toll Road have increased to help ﬁnance construction. Stewart Schwartz, director of the Coalition for Smarter Growth, argued that it’s important for taxpayers to remember long-term beneﬁts. He pointed to development near the Ballston-Rosslyn corridor after the Orange Line was built, a project that drew opposition over costs. “In our view, it’s very much worth it,” Schwartz said. “These are long-term invest ments.” A N TO NI O O L I VO A ND K AT HER INE S H AV ER (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Pacers Win Game 1 of East Finals NBA Paul George scored 24 points, David West had 19, and the Indiana Pacers protected their home court with a 107-96 victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday to take a 1-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. Indiana led wire-to-wire and never even gave the Heat a chance to tie the score after starting the game with a 5-0 lead. Game 2 is Tuesday in Indiana. The home team has won all ﬁve meetings this season. Dwyane Wade scored 27 points and LeBron James had 25 for the two-time defending NBA champions, who lost for only the second time in 10 playoff games. (AP)

Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome, right, won Saturday’s Preakness Stakes and could become the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the Triple Crown.
One Race, Many Obstacles California Chrome faces plenty of challenges in his quest for immortality. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner seeks to become thoroughbred racing’s first Triple Crown winner since the Jimmy Carter administration. The past 12 double crown winners were beaten in the Belmont Stakes in a variety of ways — including by a nose, a safety pin, a bad break from the starting gate and a broken leg in the By Rick stretch. So many Snider close to greatness were denied in so many weird ways. And now California Chrome readies for the June 7 race in Elmont, N.Y., hoping local track stewards reverse their ban on nasal strips so the colt doesn’t choke during his Triple Crown chance. The gods of racing ﬁnd amusing ways to deny their superstars.
California Chrome has won six straight since using a breathing aid also worn by many human athletes. Running 1½ miles in roughly 2½ minutes requires maximum lung capacity and the non-chemical aid certainly helps. But so many more challenges await California Chrome at Belmont Park than nasal strips. The starting gate will be ﬁlled once more with horses eager for an upset. Preakness runner-up Ride On Curlin’s late push should favor the longer Belmont, but his 2 of 11 record with nine on-board ﬁnishes suggests he could run down the street or to the gates of hell and still ﬁnish second. Belmont Park ofﬁcials list seven potential non-Preakness
runners awaiting California Chrome, who’s entering his third race in ﬁve weeks. And the wellrested challengers really rankles California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn. “There are people out there trying to upset the apple cart,” Coburn said. “They don’t want a Triple Crown winner. They want a paycheck [because the Belmont winner’s share is $600,000].” California Chrome’s biggest challengers may be beaten Derby runners Danza and Wicked Strong, who were third and fourth respectively. Both were passing horses in the Churchill Downs stretch. Wicked Strong’s trainer James Jerkens is the son of Allen Jerkens, known as the “Giant Killer” for legendary upsets. But California Chrome’s big-
The gods of racing ﬁnd amusing ways to deny their superstars.
gest obstacle may be his breeding, which in racing circles is commonly known as “nothing out of nothing.” His sire Lucky Pulpit’s stud fee was a paltry $2,500. He was even second choice when another stallion failed to impregnate Love the Chase, whose only victory was a modest claiming race. Lucky Pulpit was only 3 of 22 so this pair was meant for each other at a remote California ranch known more for producing cattle than crown contenders. The guardians of the sport tend to deny pretenders like former claimer Charismatic, gelding Funny Cide and even strangely named Alysheba. Only blue bloods win the Triple Crown, not blue-collar pedigrees. If California Chrome succeeds, he has beaten bigger odds than those on the tote board.

Decision Time for Wizards The Wizards realize this year’s run to the Eastern Conference semifinals could be the start of something special. John Wall and Bradley Beal give Washington a solid foundation, but the Wizards enter an offseason in which they want to make sure this wasn’t just some fluky run through a mediocre Eastern Conference. Team owner Ted Leonsis and president Ernie Grunfeld face several key offseason decisions. MICHAEL LEE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

State of the Team
Ariza and Gortat
The Wizards have more than $40 million committed to five players under fully guaranteed contracts next season — Wall ($13.7 million), Nene ($13 million), Martell Webster ($5.4 million), Beal ($4.5 million) and Otto Porter Jr. ($4.5 million). The team has an option on backup point guard Andre Miller, who was acquired from Denver in a Feb. 20 trade. Miller could be bought out for $2 million of the $4.6 million that he is owed next season, but the team is likely to bring back the 38-year-old point guard.
The priority for Leonsis and Grunfeld is retaining unrestricted free agents and starters Marcin Gortat and Trevor Ariza — the Wizards’ best rebounder and shot blocker and their best 3-point shooter and perimeter defender, respectively. Both players earned $7.7 million this season and will be looking for raises in the summer, when the Wizards will be at least $18 million under the salary cap (currently $58,679,000), which is expected to increase. Washington believes it has enough to bring back both players.
Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin will be restricted free agents next summer. Booker started 45 games while Nene dealt with various ailments but saw limited action against the Pacers. Seraphin fell out of the rotation following the acquisition of veteran Drew Gooden, who also will be a free agent this summer but hopes to return. Garrett Temple and former first-round pick Chris Singleton are unrestricted free agents, and the team has an option on Glen Rice Jr. Al Harrington, 34, could retire because of injuries.
Coach Randy Wittman’s deal expires this summer after he led the franchise to its second-highest win total (44) in the past 35 years and took the team into the second round for the first time in nine years. “I don’t ever worry about that,” Wittman said of his contract situation. “All I can do is try to do the best that I can do, improve myself as a coach as well as try to help my players become better.” All season, Wittman has sounded like a man who fully expects to return to the bench next season.

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos went 2-for-3 with four RBIs in Sunday’s win.
Ramos Drives In 4 As Nats Top Mets Washington’s bullpen pitches 13 scoreless innings in the series Nationals Wilson Ramos drove in four runs and Ian Desmond homered to help Jordan Zimmermann and the Nationals beat the New York Mets 6-3 on Sunday. Desmond’s solo shot tied the score in the second inning and Ramos’ two-run double in the third put the Nationals ahead for good. The catcher drove in two more with a basesloaded single in the fifth off starter Zack Wheeler (1-4) for a 5-1 lead. Zimmermann (3-1) allowed three runs and eight hits in six innings for his first win in three starts. Drew Storen, Tyler Clippard and Rafael Soriano shut out the Mets over the final three innings.
Washington’s bullpen pitched 13 scoreless innings in the series as the Nationals took two of three. Soriano worked the ninth for his 10th save. One day after New York snapped a nine-game losing streak to the Nationals, a scuffling Wheeler gave up five runs — three earned — and six hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked two. Juan Centeno hit a pair of RBI singles and Juan Lagares had a runscoring single for the Mets, who have lost four of five. Washington is 5-1 against New York this season. The Mets scored twice against Zimmermann in the sixth, but the rally ended when Centeno was thrown out at second base after his run-scoring hit. Zimmermann, a .385 hitter this season, singled in the fifth and later scored on Ramos’ base hit. BENJAMIN STANDIG (AP)
Gonzalez Placed on the DL
The Nationals placed Gio Gonzalez, left, on the 15-day disabled list Sunday because of inflammation in his pitching shoulder. Gonzalez (3-4) dropped his third straight start in Saturday’s 5-2 loss to the Mets. He lasted only three innings, allowing five runs and seven hits, which raised his ERA to 4.62. General manager Mike Rizzo said Gonzalez had an MRI on Sunday in which dye was injected. He will not be able to throw for five days.“He’ll miss two starts,” Rizzo said of the initial plan. “We’ll find out what’s going on in [Gonzalez’s shoulder] and take it from there.” (AP)

John Slattery looks past ‘Mad Men’s’ end with his directorial debut, ‘God’s Pocket’ Film
As the final season of “Mad Men” nears its yearlong break, John Slattery has traded 1960s Madison Avenue for 1970s Philadelphia. In “God’s Pocket,” the actor best known for his performance as the wry Roger Sterling on the AMC drama makes his directorial debut. The ﬁlm marks one of the last screen performances of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. (The next, Anton Corbijn’s John le Carre adaptation, “A Most Wanted Man,” is due out July 25.) In “God’s Pocket,” Hoffman stars as Mickey, a blue-collar schlub half-heartedly investigating his stepson’s death. John Turturro, Richard Jenkins and “Mad Men” co-star Christina Hendricks make up some of the local characters. You and Hoffman both were in 2007’s “Charlie Wilson’s War.” But you seemed to grow much closer making “God’s Pocket.”
It was a close working relationship. I think any good working relationship between an actor and a director, you become intimate with each other. It wasn’t because we were the best of friends prior to that. We knew each other and lived near each other. What did you learn about him as an actor while making the ﬁlm?
CHRIS PIZZELLO (AP)
JASON MERRITT (GETTY IMAGES)
John Slattery appeared in “Charlie Wilson’s War” with Philip Seymour Hoffman before directing him in “God’s Pocket.”
He’s tireless in asking questions but not complicated, highfalutin, fancy questions. It was just, like: “Why? Why does this guy stay in this community where he’s constantly reminded that he’s not one of them?” Those questions are the kind of questions he would ask. The lived-in naturalism of “God’s Pocket,” which you shot in Yonkers just outside New York City, is in stark contrast to the polish of “Mad Men.”
I thought that “God’s Pocket” was
“[Philip Seymour Hoﬀman is] someone that had that emotional depth and intelligence that works that hard.” just a good story and if I could stay out of my own way and everybody else’s way, I could tell it. That’s how good the story was — that even I could tell it. I’m not being falsemodest. You can get in your own way a lot. I do it in acting. You try to do too much or show too much. With the ﬁnal season of “Mad Men”
ﬁnishing up, do you feel like you’re entering a new phase?
Whether I like it or not, I’m beginning a new phase. “Mad Men” is finishing and by the time it finishes, it will have been 10 years of my life. So that is occurring and this movie is coming out. There will be a change. What comes next, I don’t know. JAKE COYLE (AP)
The box office take of “Godzilla” this weekend, according to Box Office Mojo, making it the second-

DATE NIGHT: Leah: “A warm night, dancing and cavorting … maybe a nighttime bike ride through town.” PET PEEVES: ”She snores.” “Socks.

“I’m pretty sure that our parents and grandparents didn’t complain when Ralph Kramden didn’t finish his fantasies of domestic violence when he exclaimed ‘One of these days …’ ”

celebrates the 50th anniversary of Nutella with the story of the sweet treat’s humble beginnings. Pietro Ferrero, a confectioner in the Italian town of Alba, initially launched the hazelnut-cocoa concoction in loaves called Giandujot that had to be cut with a knife. Ferrero adjusted the formula, and in 1964 launched the spreadable sweet that the world can’t seem to get enough of.
the growing use of phrases such as “I can’t even,” saying that such usage is an example of aposiopesis: trailing off when excited or overwhelmed. “I can’t even,” Roberts says, is just the latest example of sentence construction used by the likes of Virgil, Shakespeare and the high-tempered Ralph Kramden of “The Honeymooners,” above.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You will want to keep your plans close to the vest until you know that you are at very little risk of being derailed in any way. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’ll want to share your feelings with someone who is in doubt for some reason. You can put him or her at ease with a few well-chosen words. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Guard against a knee-jerk reaction of any kind. As soon as you let your emotions dictate your actions, trouble will result. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may get wind of something that puts you ill at ease for a time, but you’ll find solace in certain aspects of a current project.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) This is a good day to keep business and pleasure as far apart as possible — especially during hours spent at home. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You’re likely to see things that inspire you to take a detour of sorts. An important personal discovery is in the offing. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A look back at episodes in your past will give you a clearer perspective on certain aspects of your future. It’s time to make plans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You may have an instinctive urge to do something that others will tell you is inappropriate, but your rules are somewhat different.
