ARIES (March 21-April 19). You feel
like you're in your own little world, but
know that others are very aware of you
now. "If you reveal your secrets to the
wind, you should not blame the wind
for revealing them to the trees." --
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's so
much you have access to, and you're
a curious person, ready to learn all you
can and experience the richness of
life. Self-regulation is, therefore,
among your biggest challenges.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're
more concerned with achievement
than reward. In fact, the reward, as far
achievement. The accolades can be
nice, but they can also be
pressure than they are worth.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). New
research suggests that you might do
yourself some good by talking to
yourself, especially if you're saying
encouraging or compassionate things,
and most especially if you're saying
them out loud.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Take on the
small, easily won challenges. Building
up a track record of success will give
you the confidence you need to go for
the more remarkable and difficult
opportunities coming your way in the
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Belonging
isn't about fitting together perfectly,
having a lot in common or agreeing on
most things. Belonging is about
acceptance. Be inclusive. Set a tone of
friendliness and compassion. Foster a
sense of unconditional belonging.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The
nearness of interesting and well-
traveled people or the pull of exotic
lands will activate your adventurous
spirit. If you make discovery a priority
you'll definitely find the necessary
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Everyone
will bring something to the table,
though not necessarily a tangible
thing. Some will bring an idea, a talent
for receptivity, a custom, a grateful
heart and much expressed pleasure in
the opportunity at hand.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). For
you, adrenaline isn't a hormone that
kicks in on an emergency-only basis;
rather, it's a daily boost. Your high-
energy style will be well suited for the
challenges of the day.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You're happy when the people you
love are happy. There is one person in
particular whose happiness means the
most to you, and you're likely to spend
a lot of time, money and energy on
making this person smile.
Sometimes it is more gracious to have
a little of what's being offered to you
than to abstain. The gestures and
rituals around togetherness will have
greater meaning today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As
artistic and imaginative as you are, you
still admire those who lack pretension,
are too laid back to strive and too chill
to social-climb. Your values are right in
line with all that it takes to create
meaningful, lasting friendships.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 3). Since a
person's knowledge only goes as far
as his or her experiences, and
because your sincere desire is for a
wealth of knowledge, you'll open
yourself to discovery, dive into
mysteries and let curiosity carry you to
different parts of the world. The funds
come in June and November. August
begins a serious bond. Libra and Leo
adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9,
40, 4, 47 and 13.
EO Media Group
To join our team, you’ll need
web press operation skills, an
eye for color, mechanical ability,
be a good communicator and
work well with others. Must
be able to lift 50# and go up/
down stairs on a regular basis.
