For Monday, April 17
Those with birthdays today: You have a way of getting the facts and the complete story this year. You work through detachment and understanding. You might want to rethink your decisions more carefully, as sometimes the results, especially financially, could be stunning. You need to understand what is going on behind the scenes and with others. Buff up that ability, and you will be unusually successful this year. If you are single, you add magic to nearly any bond. Someone quite different could enter your life. If you are attached, you will grow in a new direction as a couple. Be willing to blaze a new trail, emotionally or in your lifestyle. SAGITTARIUS almost always presents alternatives.
