SALOME’S STARS HOROSCOPE
R.F.D. BY MIKE MARLAND
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A problem in
getting a workplace project up and moving
might upset the Lamb, who likes things done
on time. But be patient. Th e delay could turn
out to be a blessing in disguise.
AMBER WAVES BY DAVE T. PHIPPS
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your instincts
are usually on the mark, so if you feel uneasy
about being asked for advice on a certain
matter, it’s probably a good idea that you opt
not to comply with the request.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might
have two minds about a proposed change
(which oft en happens with the Twins), but
once all the facts are in, you’ll be able to make
a defi nitive decision. Good luck.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Th e Crab’s
frugal aspect dominates, so while you might
be reluctant to pay for technical repairs, the
time you save in getting things back on track
could be well worth the expense.
THE SPATS BY JEFF PICKERING
LEO (July 23 to August 22) While you Leos
and Leonas continue to concentrate on doing
well in your work-related ventures this week,
consider reserving the weekend for sharing
good times with family and friends.
A WING & A PRAYER BY BILL ABBOTT
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Th is
is a good week to take stock of the important
personal, professional or familial relationships
in your life and see where you might need to
do some intense shoring up.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your
sense of justice makes you the likely person to
help deal with a work- or family-related griev-
ance. But you need to have any doubts about
anyone’s true agenda resolved fi rst.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Th e Scorpio passion for getting things done
right and on time might rankle some folks.
Never mind them. Others will be impressed,
and they’re the ones you want in your corner.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to Decem-
ber 21) Finances could be a mite tight this
week. And, while things will ease up soon
enough, you savvy Sagittarians will want to
keep a prudent eye on your expenses at this
time.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
Although a technical malfunction could cause
a temporary delay in getting things up and run-
ning, you could use the time to recheck your
operation and make changes where necessary.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
You might fi nd it diffi cult to resist making a
snap judgment about a colleague’s behavior.
But stick with your usual way of assessing
situations and wait for the facts to come out.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Asking
for help with a family situation might be the
wisest course to take right now. Just be sure
you turn to someone you can trust to do and
say the right thing for the right reasons.
BORN THIS WEEK: People see in you a
born leader whom they can follow and put
their trust in.
