ARIES ( March 21-April 19) — Today is a 5 — Watch out, or you will spend more than expected. Don’t despair; the tunnel could be a simple figment of your imagination. Besides, there’s a light at the end, anyway. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 6 — The job now is keeping what you’ve learned. Home improvements will drain savings if you’re not careful. Friends can help you replenish your reserves. Schedule carefully. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Today is a 6 — You may have to make a mess to get things right, but don’t push your luck, especially around finances. Acknowledge limitations. Friends help you meet the right person. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Today is a 6 — Find inspiration in a book, and venture far. But listen to the voice of reason to assure that the giants you fight are not actually windmills. Don’t make expensive promises. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 5 — Consider all options before taking on new responsibility. A risky proposition could be rewarding, but may also fail. Trust your instincts, and be willing to accept the consequences. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 6 — It may seem like resistance coming from above, but you may be your biggest obstacle. Get out of your way and face your public. There’s nothing to be afraid of if you really think about it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 5 — Focus emotional energy on work, not on drama. The job may get complex, but it’s also rewarding. You may as well enjoy the experience. Watch out for hidden agendas, though. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is a 7 — Breathe deeply and relax. Access your creative side to overcome obstacles with playfulness and joy. Avoid distractions from what’s truly important. Share love. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Today is a 7 — Public duties take from private time at first. Later, relax at home away from noise and raucous crowds. Tell your friends you’ll see them later. Clean house. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 6 — Give your mate the benefit of the doubt. Check the Internet for ideas, but limit your time. There are plenty of great experiences around the corner, not far from home. Explore. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 5 — Develop a creative plan of action. Expand wisely, without haste or waste. Emotions center on money, but cash may not be the core issue. Go ahead and be outrageous. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 7 — Pay attention to everything around you. You get flashes of insight at the oddest moments. Don’t take financial risks if you encounter resistance. Avoid distractions.
