DIFFICULTY THIS WEEK: * * * W Moderate "" "* Challenging -r .-k Hoe BOY! 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel more encouraged about changes i.n your personal and/or profes- sional life. However, it tnight be best not to rush things but rather work with them as they evolve. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovine's business sense is especially keen this week. But remember that it's always best to investigate before investing. Make sure there are no hidden factors that can rise up later on. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Working on a fhmily proiect could create tension between and among those concerned. Your good sense and your patience can help reduce bad attitudes and raise positive feelings. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You should be seeing more progress in the devel- opment of your plans and more supporters joining in. News from the past could help change someone's long- held position. LEO (July 23 to August 22) With personal aspects strong this week, Leos and Leonas might want to spend more time with family and others who are especially close to them. Also expect news of a possible career change. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Taking a strong stand can be help- ful this week. But be care- ful you don't cross the line into obstinacy. Best to take a position on facts as they are, not as you want them to be. LIBRA (Septenaber 23 to October 22) You have a strong sense of the needs of others. This week, turn some of Hat sensitivity into an honest self-appraisal, and let it find places where you can help yourselt SCORPI() (October 23 to November 21) Creating an emotional comfort zone to handle a personal problem helps at first. But by mid- week, you'll realize you need to deal with it directly or it could linger for too long. SAGITTARIUS (Novenl- beT 22 to December 21) Turning the page on a mis- take to start fresh might not be the thing to do. Better to go over each step that led up to the decision you made and see which one misled you. CAPRICORN (Decelva- beT 22 to January 19) Goats enjoy a varied diet, but eat- ing crow isn't on the menu --- at least not this week. An embarrassing situation might have gone wrong bet)re you got into it. Check it out. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your sense of honesty might impel you to speak up about a situation you disapprove ok That's fine. But do so without sounding accusatory. You might not know all the facts behind it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Being asked to create a reassuring attitude in the naiddle of chaos isn't easy. but you can do it; Sup- port for your eftbrts comes slowly, but it does come. Enjoy an arts-tilled week- end. BORN THIS WEEK: Your honesty about people and issues is expressed in a positive, not painful, way. (,) 2011 King Features Synd.. Inc.
