Something that glitters at first glance proves less shimmery on further inspection. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put blinders on to the kinds of distractions that threaten to derail progress or knock you off course today. Stay focused on your goal and you can succeed where those of lesser talent fail. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Curb an indecisive tendency today. Adversaries are in prime pouncing position if weakness is revealed. You understand the value of forethought and strategy better than do most. Think ahead. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Intuition and sixth sense are in fine form today. You can advance toward a goal at work or guide cupid's arrow with precision if you trust a sharp hunch. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Set aside pride if it tempts you toward reckless or dangerous behavior. You are in charge of the largest portion of your destiny today. Smart choices lead you closer to a desired destination. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Getting caught up in trivial details could cause you to lose ground at work or in a business deal. Catch yourself in the act of wasting time on the inconsequential and redirect your energy toward something more substantial. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When others are blinded by glitz and promises, you are able to see the downside of a person, place or thing today. Speak out when it falls upon you to be the voice of reason. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Homework done in recent days or weeks pays off well. You are prepared and ready to proceed with confidence. Change can be beneficial and transformative when you know how to make the most of it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Adjust your attitude expediently and you can successfully deal with restraints or restrictions today. Adaptability gives you an edge in business, legal affairs and love. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You are a rule-maker and a trendsetter today. Those who would stand in your way are well-advised to rethink that plan. Actions have visible cause-and-effect consequences. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Radical and conservative clash today. You feel torn in two directions over a choice that needs to be made around the house or in your personal life. Middle ground is hard to find. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Peer pressure is a real turnoff today. If you don't fit in, you stand out. Financial worries are not alleviated by dwelling upon them. Do what you can to enact constructive change where needed. These interpretations are based on the aspects and positions of the planets in relation to each sun-sign. They indicate the general mood and issues of the day as you experience them. Be creative in applying your forecast to the actual circumstances of your life.
