SALOME’S STARS HOROSCOPE
R.F.D. BY MIKE MARLAND
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A pesky
health problem should clear up soon. Mean-
while, travel -- both for personal as well as
for business reasons -- is strong in the Aries
aspect this week, and well into the next.
AMBER WAVES BY DAVE T. PHIPPS
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Look for
Bovines to be on the move this week, whether
it’s traveling for fun or for business. Other
“moves” include workplace adjustments and,
for some, relationship changes.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Geminis who
have just gone through a hectic period involv-
ing job and/or family matters might want to
take some well-earned time out to relax and
restore those drained energy levels.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A romantic
situation seems to have stalled, just when the
Moon Child was expecting it to go forward.

nication going on. Talk it over openly and
THE SPATS BY JEFF PICKERING
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Showing a
genuine interest in something that’s important
to a friend, family member or colleague could
open a communication line that had been
pretty much shut down for a while.
A WING & A PRAYER BY BILL ABBOTT
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Mak-
ing a potentially life-changing decision takes
as much knowledge as you can gather, plus
determination and patience. Take your time
working it out. Don’t let anyone rush you.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You
should be back on schedule and heading in
the right direction aft er clearing up a mis-
understanding. But there could still be some
setbacks. If so, correct them immediately.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A
business matter keeps you pretty busy, but try
to squeeze in time to be with family as well as
close friends. You need the good vibrations
you get from people who care for you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to Decem-
ber 21) Investing in an attractive prospect
(business or personal) with little or no infor-
mation can be risky. Avoid future problems by
getting all the facts before you act.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
Someone close to you might have an unex-
pected reaction to a decision you feel you’re
prepared to make. Listen to his or her point of
view. It could prove to be surprisingly helpful.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Don’t give up yet. Th at once warm, per-
sonal relationship that seems to be cooling
off fast could recover with some tender,
loving care, and who better than you to
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Career
matters are strong this week. You might want
to enter a training program to enhance your
skills. Also, consider getting professional help
in preparing a brilliant resume.
BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of
respecting the feelings of others, which is one
reason people feel comfortable having you in
