Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- Today is a 6 -- Something you try now doesn't work. Don't make blind assumptions. Remain patient with a resister. Try again later when circumstances have shifted. Force can lead to breakage. Instead, handle other important tasks.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) -- Today is a 7 -- Your routine gets interrupted. Review potential expenses and pad the budget for possible overruns. Distractions could get expensive, so keep everything on track. Schedule extra time for the unexpected. It all works out.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Carefully budget where to spend first. Resupply locally, and save on shipping. Measure thrice and cut once. Weigh the pros and cons before taking action. Don't over-extend. Go for elegant simplicity. Choose for ease.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Keep your promises, or communicate as soon as you realize you won't. Despite any roadblocks, you can get through with some persistence and flexibility. Nostalgia seeps in when you least expect it.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is a 6 -- Draw up the plan. Don't rush into anything. Slow and easy does it. Neatness does count. Postpone an outing while you review the itinerary. Unexpected circumstances could alter the route. Work up alternates.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today is a 6 -- Old assumptions get challenged, and a clash with authority could shake up the status quo. Hold out for the best deal. Use your own good sense. Consider a person who thinks differently than you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Today is a 6 -- Build a strong foundation. Hide out, if necessary. Circumstances demand responsible money handling. Hold yourself to high standards. Stifle rebellious procrastination. Prepare a current budget, and then keep to it, penny by penny.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Today is a 7 -- Travel could get tangled in traffic and delays. Change occurs. Take on more responsibility, and learn how to do a job yourself. Call upon experts who can also teach. Have them review your work.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Today is a 7 -- Tempers could get short when things don't go as planned. Don't make expensive promises. Go for peaceful, restorative activities... a walk outside, or a movie with friends. Patience and a sense of humor pay off.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Today is a 7 -- An awkward moment or misunderstanding slows the action. Declare the breakdown, and look for what's missing that would make a difference. Clean up any messes. Strengthen and build support for your shared intention.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today is a 6 -- Finish a tough job before going out to play. An older person offers instruction. Hurrying could cause accidents, so take it slow and review each step before moving to the next. Getting it done satisfies.
