SALOME’S STARS HOROSCOPE
BY MIKE MARLAND
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Personal
matters claim a good deal of the Lamb’s time
in the early part of the week. But by midweek,
pragmatic considerations (work, school,
job-seeking, etc.) begin to take priority.
BY DAVE T. PHIPPS
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Th e seasonal
shift ignites the Bovine’s creative aspects. You
could do well if you try to combine your pen-
chant for innovation with the more pragmatic
demands of the week.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Ideas come
easily to you this week. And never mind that
some might suggest they’re unworkable and/
or impractical. It’s your vision that counts.
Work them out and see what turns up.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Personal
matters continue to dominate the early part of
the week. By midweek, more workaday issues
once again begin to emerge. Balance your

concerned before it can impede progress on
an ongoing project.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Th e Scorpion’s pragmatic side helps you
accept the possibility that a change of plans
might be the wise thing to do. Be sure to
weigh all your considerations carefully.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to Decem-
ber 21) Some people might not take no for
an answer. Never mind. Keep your resolve if
you’re sure you don’t want to be involved in a
potentially sticky situation.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
All other facts and fi gures aside, it’s what you
learn about potential colleagues that can be
most helpful in assessing any decisions you’re
likely to make regarding a new project.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
You might want to reconsider some of your
outside commitments if they continue to
demand more time than you can spare.
Be honest with yourself when making a
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Pay at-
tention to that inner voice of Piscean wisdom
counseling you to remove those rose-colored
glasses and take an honest look at any deci-
sions you might face this week.
