Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) —

Today is a 7 — The full story’s not out yet. Wait until later to reorganize. Don’t talk about it, or leave anything hanging. Keep costs down. Don’t touch savings. Try out a new idea later… tried and true works best now.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) —

Today is a 7 — Don’t say much until you’re sure. It’s a good time (and a good idea) to upgrade your skills. Don’t share all your fantasies yet. Play with color, sound and other elements. Try different ideas, and then choose.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) —

Today is a 6 — Relax at home or take a short trip. Water travel sets the mood. Wait to see what develops. Don’t tell anyone. Let go of an fantasy. Hold off a romantic interruption. Call a friend for support.
