SALOME’S STARS HOROSCOPE
R.F.D. BY MIKE MARLAND
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Change is still
dominant for Rams and Ewes, both in the
workplace and their private lives. Th is is also
a good time to look at a possible relocation if
that has been one of your goals.
AMBER WAVES BY DAVE T. PHIPPS
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Doing things
for others is what you do well. But don’t forget
that Bovines thrive on the arts, so make some
time for yourself to indulge your passion for
music and artistic expressions.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) While the
Romantic Twin considers where to go for his
or her upcoming vacation, the Practical Twin
will start making travel plans now to take
advantage of some great bargains.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your sensitive
nature helps you deal with a diffi cult emotion-
al situation. Be patient and continue to show
your sincere support wherever it is needed.
THE SPATS BY JEFF PICKERING
LEO (July 23 to August 22) You’re making
progress as you move through some unfa-
miliar territory. And while there might be a
misstep or two along the way, overall you’re
heading in the right direction. Good luck.
A WING AND A PRAYER BY BILL ABBOTT
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Some
good news arrives -- and just in time to
remind you that you’re making progress. Per-
haps things aren’t moving as quickly as you’d
prefer, but they’re moving nevertheless.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Th is is
a good week to step back and assess the facts
that have recently emerged to see where they
can be used to your advantage. Also, don’t
hesitate to make changes where necessary.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
You should begin to experience some support
from those who now agree with your point of
view. Th is should help counter the remaining
objections from die-hard skeptics.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to Decem-
ber 21) Don’t let your aim be defl ected by
trivial matters as you try to resolve a confus-
ing situation. Take time to fi nd and thorough-
ly assess the facts before making any decision.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
Th e possibility of moving to another location
has come up. But before you dismiss it as un-
workable, it’s worth checking out just in case it
does have some merit aft er all.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
New relationships -- personal or work-related
-- show mixed signals. Best to assume noth-
ing. Let things play themselves out until you
have something substantive to work with.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your
ability to make needed changes without
causing too much, if any, negative ripple
eff ect comes in handy when dealing with a
sensitive matter either on the job or in the
BORN THIS WEEK: Although you like
things to go smoothly, you’re not shy about
making waves when you believe the situation
calls for it.
