SALOME’S STARS HOROSCOPE
R.F.D. BY MIKE MARLAND
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be
upset about having to deal with problems that
are no fault of your own. But you can turn
the annoyance into an asset by showing how
quickly and how well you can resolve them.
AMBER WAVES BY DAVE T. PHIPPS
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Th e Bovine’s
fondness for tidiness pays off when you
untangle a situation that seems hopelessly
snarled. You might later be surprised to learn
who will be expressing his or her gratitude.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you
can tackle your assignment the way you pre-
fer, it might be a good idea to at least ask for
suggestions. Who knows? One or two might
even turn out to be helpful.
THE SPATS BY JEFF PICKERING
A WING & A PRAYER BY BILL ABBOTT
so why not accept that you’ll do just as well,
or better, in dealing with the new challenge
ahead?
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Your suspicions might be on the mark, but
unless you can prove what you assume, you
need to exercise that Scorpion discretion and
let events unfold without your assistance.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to Decem-
ber 21) Be careful not to go over the top
this week. Avoid overeating (especially of
the wrong foods), or drinking too much, or
working too hard. You can do it all, but in
moderation.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Make all the
changes in your plans or proposals that you
feel are necessary before -- repeat, before
-- you submit them to your colleagues. You’ll
come off looking more decisive that way.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) A family matter is given to you to resolve
because you have the gift for bringing quar-
relsome kinfolk together. But while you’re
playing Dr. Phil, don’t neglect your career
obligations.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might feel
a mite intimidated in a new environment, be
it a job, a classroom or meeting the future in-
laws. But enter with a big smile, and everyone
will see you as a real take-charge Cat.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Someone of importance shares your goals but
disagrees with your plan to achieve them. Nev-
er mind. Defending your methods with logic
and facts earns you admiration and respect.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Th is
could be a romantic time for you if you can set
aside your cynicism and let yourself believe that
someone really cares. If you’re already in a rela-
tionship, expect your partner to be extra-loving.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Consid-
er getting away, perhaps for the weekend, de-
spite all the demands made on your time and
energies. You’ll return refreshed and ready to
tackle it all with your usual fi nesse.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) It’s
a good time to shed any doubts about your
abilities. You’ve proved yourself in the past,
BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sense of
honesty that makes people believe and trust
in you.
