(March 21-April 19) – Today is a 5 – Negotiations must be handled carefully and precisely. If you’ve got the facts to back up your claim, more money could be yours. Don’t trust a friend to provide these; dig for them yourself.
(April 20-May 20) – Today is a 7 – There’s still confusion at the top, so keep your head down. You’ll have little trouble expressing your desires in a private setting, with the ones you love. Stay in a snug harbor and let the storm rage on without you.
(May 21-June 21) – Today is a 6 – You may be tempted to dump your responsibilities and take off on a wild adventure. That might be fun, but now is not the time to start. Now is a better time to face responsibilities.
(June 22-July 22) – Today is a 6 – This time a friend’s advice is less welcome if she tells you to stop when you want to go. You have free will, but remember: There’s not much to be gained but learning from a loss. Do more research before making a big investment.
(July 23-Aug. 22) – Today is a 7 – An older person’s frustration with somebody else could work to your advantage. Be on the lookout so that you can offer your services when the other guy goofs up. You could win the prize, raise or promotion. You snooze, you lose!
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Today is an 8 – Your spirits are up, even if your immediate surroundings haven’t changed. Want to take a step beyond your normal boundaries? Start planning. Make it happen!
(Sept. 23-Oct 22) – Today is a 5 – It’s hard to just say “no” to something a loved one wants. If you can’t afford it, you may have no choice. It’s hard to discuss a sensitive subject at first, but it’ll get easier. Keep talking about it.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21) – Today is a 6 – Negotiations with your mate or business partner are slowing you down. You can’t quite agree, but this is not bad. Pending changes should be evaluated carefully, as you well know. Besides, something unexpected could happen soon.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21) – Today is a 4 – Things have settled down, and you’re back in the same old routine. The excitement of the past few days fades, and you realize there’s a good-sized mess to clean up. A new idea or machine has a few bugs to be worked out, too. Slow and easy does it.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Today is a 7 – You’d like to buy the best of everything for the ones you love – all the things you didn’t have when you were a kid. What they’d really like is your time. Since you have more of that today than money, squander it recklessly on them.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18) – Today is a 6 – A problem you’re trying to solve at home will take longer than you thought. It’s kind of like you’re digging up a rock, and the more you dig, the more rock you find. You may have to go around it.
(Feb. 19-March 20) – Today is a 7 – One old worry after another is forgotten as you sink into familiar love. Sometimes your family’s kind of strict, but it’s for your own good, and that’s what you get to teach the next generation – in almost the exact same words, you’ll be surprised to discover.
