SALOME’S STARS HOROSCOPE
R.F.D. BY MIKE MARLAND
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A seemingly
stalled romantic situation could benefi t from
your reassurance that you want this relation-
ship to work. And if you do, use a tad more of
that irresistible Aries charm.

A WING & A PRAYER BY BILL ABBOTT
your job will take you to someplace exotic.
Or you might be setting up meetings with
potential clients or employers. Whatever it is,
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Going to
new places and meeting new people appeals
to both the Taurean’s romantic and practical
sides. Aft er all, you never can tell where those
new contacts can take you. Right?
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Someone might use deception to try to push
you into making a decision you’re not fully
comfortable with. But those keen Scorpio
senses should keep you alert to any such
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Th at ca-
reer-change opportunity that didn’t work out
when you fi rst considered it could come up
again. But this time, remember that you have
more to off er and should act accordingly.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December
21) Romance dominates this week when Cupid
spears the Archer, for a change. Positive things
also are happening in the workplace. Expect
important news to arrive by the week’s end.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Th ere could
be some tensions in relationships -- domestic
or workaday. But a calm approach that doesn’t
raise the anger levels and a frank discussion
soon will resolve the problem.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
Anyone trying to bully the Sea Goat -- wheth-
er it involves a personal or a professional mat-
ter -- will learn a painful lesson. Others also
will benefi t from the Goat’s strong example.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) It’s a good idea to
begin preparing for that career change you’ve
been thinking about for a while. Start to
sharpen your skills and expand your back-
ground to be ready when it calls.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Congratulations. With things going the way
they are, you should be able to spare some
time and take a break from your hectic sched-
ule for some well-earned fun and games.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Bless
that Virgo skepticism that has kept you from
falling into traps others seem to rush into. But
you might want to give a new possibility the
benefi t of the doubt, at least on a trial basis.
PISCES (February 19 to March 21) Your
sharp Piscean intuition should be able to un-
cover the true agendas of those who might be
trying to catch the Fish in one of their schemes.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Travel
and career are strong in your aspect. Perhaps
BORN THIS WEEK: Your fl air for innova-
tive art and design keeps you at least a step
ahead of most everyone else.
