ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Fears are overcome with expo-
sure. Not all exposure is alike
though. Relax first and then face
the fear. To let yourself get too
wound up is counteractive to
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The
tortoise knew he was slow, and
he probably also knew he was
unlikely to win the proposed race
with a hare. The tactic he took
was not just his only chance at
winning; it was his general life-
style. Limitations are strengths.
PHOEBE AND HER UNICORN
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There
are many ways to stand up for
yourself. Today, you’ll do it by
holding your ground on the side-
walk, keeping your place in line,
speaking assertively and holding
your own in a relationship.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Like the tide, you roll in here and
you roll in there, seeing many a
distant shore. Yet, none can keep
you. It seems nothing can stop
you from rolling right back to
your home, the deep blue sea.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Confi-
dence is more easily obtained
through ignorance than it is
through knowledge. Because the
more a person knows, the more
that person understands what
there is to know, and how little
knowledge has actually been
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It
seems that you now owe more
than you took. That’s the way it
goes with debt, including the
debt of being alive. Interest is a
fact of breathing. Not everyone
has your obsession with contri-
bution, but everyone should.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). These
critics who keep you grounded
are crucial to your modesty and
integrity. Still, they are more
helpful after you’ve had some
success. Right now you need
encouragement and dreaming,
not criticism and reality.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Storms are named after people.
You know firsthand why this is so.
If you were the namer of storms,
you wouldn’t be at a loss. But all
that has helped you recognize
and appreciate the value of
sweet, sunshiny friendships.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Love is a healer. But what about
when there’s nothing broken?
Then love is the fortification,
the prevention, the antioxidant.
Today, the answer is the same for
every question: more love.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Regret doesn’t happen when
you’re fully consuming the mo-
ment you have. There’s no place
for regret in today’s discourse
except to use it as a signal to stop
and find something that will get
you back to “now.”
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
There are those who have such
a light touch emotionally that
being around them is easy and
breezy. When the intensity of a
situation turns up, these types
act as inflatables, keeping them-
selves and others afloat.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
Self-esteem is a tricky thing. It’s
not based on what you do. Two
people could do the identical act
and one could feel great about it,
the other crummy. It’s a matter of
evaluation. It’s time to tweak your
SUNDAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 4).
Wherever you go, you add some-
thing to what’s going on there.
You do your best to plug into
groups and systems that seem
to be improving things, though
you’ll get the most satisfaction
from plans and groups you create
to serve purposes that haven’t
been covered by others. You’re a
leader and an innovator. Cancer
and Taurus adore you. Your lucky
numbers are: 5, 36, 42, 3 and 48.
