YESTERDAY’S SOLUTION YOUR STARS AQUARIUS | JAN 21 - FEB 19 You seem to have a morbid dread of overspending or being under funded. How ever, if you approach your personal finances in a logical way, you should find they are not in nearly as much of a tangle as you imagined. You won’t have money to waste but you should be able to indulge in a special treat. PISCES | FEB 20 - MAR 20 It may have been difficult to differentiate between genuine problems and irrational fears, but today aspects mean you now know what to confront and what to ignore. Turn your attention to matters of the heart, and show what a care free individual you can be. ARIES | MAR 21 - APR 20 IThere may be one or two stumbling blocks for you to overcome before you can finish off a particular project or idea. Mind you, you like a challenge and this should be the sort of day which you can really get your teeth into. This evening don’t travel to far away. TAURUS | APR 21 - MAY 20 Don’t feel you are being self–centred or that you are letting somebody down if you focus on your own hopes and wishes. You have provided so much comfort and support to others in the past and now your needs must come before all else.Work to a time limit if you want. GEMINI | MAY 21 - JUNE 21 Although you are not in a particularly strident mood, you should warn fair weather friends or rivals that they are playing with fire. Now that you can see what you are up against, it won’t take long to devise a strategy that’s guaranteed to bring success and satisfaction. CANCER | JUN 22 - JULY 22 Any attempts to appear business like and unsentimental will be dashed by words and gestures from those with whom you share your life. The stars right now suggest that the outside world will seem far less important than what you have in your immediate surroundings. LEO | JULY 23 - AUG 22 Only now that you are at peace with yourself over some tough decisions made recently can you appreciate how concerned certain people have been for your welfare. You have as usual, ridden out the storm and you have done more than survive. VIRGO | AUG 23 - SEP 23 After coping with confusion and delays you may feel certain involvements are more trouble than they are worth. However, today’s aspects suggest that it should be possible to finalise deals first mooted some weeks ago.Don’t give up now; you are so close to a much wanted goal. LIBRA | SEP 24 - OCT 23 Potential planetary influences might leave you powerless in a situation which must be clarified sooner rather than later. However, you have total trust in a loved one, who will put your interests before anybody else’s. This is not a major war you are facing; just a minor skirmish. SCORPIO | OCT 24 - NOV 22 Your ingenuity seems to be at its best, and you will be thinking up original ideas for solving long-standing problems. There may also be some unexpected events which take you by surprise, but you needn’t worry, because the effect will be all to the good. SAGITTARIUS | NOV 23 - DEC 21 If a situation becomes intolerable, have no hesitation in making good your escape. You don’t like to be seen as a coward or a quitter, but certain achievements have been judged unfairly over recent weeks. Time is precious,. CAPRICORN | DEC 22 - JAN 20 Although it may be disappointing at first, it’s time to admit that a companion cannot meet commitments made some time ago. Promises have been broken before; a rational approach will bring this sorry little episode to a gain-less end.
