When you do something, you give it your all. This year something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. Take it easy and learn to serve others. This is a good year to travel.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a lovely day because it’s full of new discoveries and encounters with fresh faces and new places. This is just the kind of energy you like because you are a pioneer at heart. These changes in your immediate environment will stimulate and excite you.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You are the financial wizard of the zodiac, and today you can prove this. Trust your moneymaking ideas because they are clever, innovative and original. And bold! You might also solve financial problems with an entirely new approach. Clever you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

(If you put out fresh flowers you don’t have to dust.)
