ing personal involvement in a troubling
situation might be advisable at this time,
especially since you probably don’t have all
the facts. The weekend brings a surprise.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A problem
with a colleague you thought had been
resolved could recur. However, this time
you’ll be able to rely on your record to get
a quick resolution in your favor. Good
THE SPATS BY JEFF PICKERING
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Giving your
self-esteem a boost could be a good idea
for the Moon Child, who might feel a bit

be recalled by a person you believed was
out of your life.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A

one of miscommunication, and once the
matter is settled, you should have a better
chance of getting your proposals approved.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) An
upcoming career decision could be based
on how well you might be able to apply
