ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You are a generous sign, and because you feel concern for those less fortunate, you see practical ways of helping someone. You might do this through fundraising, or rely on your own personal efforts. Bravo!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
A conversation with a close friend or partner will be productive since you are mutually sympathetic toward each other; yet, you are dealing with practical, doable ideas. Someone older or more experienced might have advice. Never hurts to listen!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You will accomplish a lot at work because you’re in a sensible frame of mind and ready to do whatever is necessary to get the job done. Nevertheless, you feel sympathetic to a co-worker and will help them in a practical way. This is good because kindness is the most important thing in the world.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You will be an effective teacher if talking to kids or young people. A third party — someone older or more experienced — might help you in this matter. You are sympathetic to what someone needs and you’re willing to give them a leg up.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
A conversation with someone older or more experienced will help you, especially regarding something to do with your home or your family. You might need legal or financial advice. Your intent is to help someone because you feel sympathetic to their needs.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is a good day to tackle routine work that requires attention to detail because you’re willing to work hard, plus you’re focused. Ironically, you are also imaginative and sensitive to someone’s needs; regardless, you’re wearing your sensible hat.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You might feel torn about making an important purchase. On one hand, it could be something beautiful and elegant. Or perhaps, it is something charitable because you want to help someone. Meanwhile, part of you wants to be sensible and practical with your money. Hmmm.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You have a balance between being soft-hearted and imaginative, but also practical, focused and to the point. You see what needs to be done and you will do it with a charitable heart. Good day to make sensible plans. Meanwhile, are you in love?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your ability to research behind the scenes will generate productive results because you are Johnny on the spot! Not only will you persevere with diligence and attention to detail, you will use your intuitive hunches to find what you’re looking for.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Someone older or more experienced might have imaginative solutions for you. If so, they could inspire you to reach for something more and entertain more ambitious goals for yourself. According to Robert Browning, "A man’s reach should exceed his grasp."
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A boss or someone in a position of authority will be impressed with you, because you can deliver the goods. They see you as reliable, conscientious and dependable, but also imaginative and resourceful. Wow! Find a way to take this to the bank.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
A good time to study for work on a manuscript or do anything that requires focus and imagination. You might also be concerned about those in need in other countries. If so, you will do something practical to help — at least, make a donation.
