LOLA DILBERT SIX CHIX BIZARRO MUTTS NON SEQUITUR BABY BLUES WIZARD OF ID ZITS ROSE IS ROSE ARIES (March 21-April 19). An African proverb suggests that until the lion has a historian, the hunter will always be a hero. As you present the story in your own point of view (because it’s the only one you have), you try to be fair. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The mis- sion of the weekend includes heavy work that doesn’t feel all that difficult given the nobility of the goal. (If the hard work feels arduous and pointless, you’re on the wrong mission.) GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Life gets better when you’re a witness, not a judge. When you rid yourself of prejudice and re- lease yourself of the need to have an opin- ion, you’ll see the truth clearly. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can’t radiate a beautiful aura while feeling dark inside. That’s why the time you spend feel- ing good is well worth the effort. If you were to be 10 percent more selfish, what would you do next? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Most parents would prefer their children to be courteous, obedient and respectful, but also sensible enough to fight ferociously for themselves when necessary. The weekend will high- light both your mild and feisty qualities. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You fought for your principles, and that took guts, but not as much as it will take to live up to them. You’re in that process now. Feel good about yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some say you should follow your impulses as long as they don’t lead you to intentionally hurt another person. Unfortunately, the pain is the same whether or not the infliction is intentional. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll put yourself out there and be seen by some- one whose opinion really matters to you. You may not realize at first that you are on this person’s radar, especially if your pre- sentation is digital. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Rela- tionships that start with attraction can end in repulsion, but it rarely goes the other way. Obey your aversions. Tonight, you’ll pick up on the details that others miss. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may find yourself pulling away from some- one without consciously knowing why. Figure it out, because the knowledge will help your other relationships. Hint: Maybe this person somehow always causes more work for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are attractive, in demand and, like most people in that position, slow to add new people to your world. You appreciate casual interest from others, but intensity will scare you off. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What good are blessings in disguise if they never re- veal themselves and no one makes the ef- fort to recognize them? Ask your blessings to unmask themselves. SATURDAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 6). Love takes time, and you’ll give it the best of your attention this year even when you’re crazy busy. You’ll find a new work niche in July. Younger people will credit you for their success. Start socking away money so you’ll be ready for an exciting November investment. Your true riches will multiply in 2016. Pisces and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 42, 35, 1, 38 and 47.
