Transcript of STAR SIGNS A DAILY CROSSWORD the boss 38 Mottled bean 41 Grewdark er, perhaps 42 Completely lacking


    ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may possess excess energy. Plenty of exercise or competi- tive sports will keep you at your best. Your enthusiastic friendli- ness and exuberance may be misunderstood. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): As the razor-sharpening barber said, “It takes a lot of scraping to develop a fine edge.” Be dili- gent; remain astute and obser- vant and you will be well paid. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Staying close to home may be more satisfying than venturing out. If you do get the urge to splurge you may prefer to go treasure hunting at yard sales or antique malls. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You might be left behind if you can’t keep up with the crowd. It is a good day to attend social events or to offer hospitality to new friends. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The only way to win respect is to firmly stand your ground. Don’t shy away from a confrontation or stick your head into the ground like an ostrich. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The more you plot and plan the more you become an also-ran. You might think you are out- foxing everyone when you are merely laying down a scent for the hounds. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The piper could knock on your door and expect to be paid. You may have strained your resources or physical stamina. Slow down and take care of yourself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Some disclosures may make you uncomfortable. However, by bravely offering the facts you will be able to come to an entirely reassuring and benefi- cial agreement. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Beneath the surface great harmony exists but on the sur- face weekend plans may ap- pear out of sync. Someone in your family could benefit from exercise to burn off steam. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be logical. If it is good for the goose it is good for the gander. Anything that is good for two geese may be good enough for the whole gaggle. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): One tantalizing possibility for financial security may need to be placed on the shelf for the moment. When you pursue someone for a rendezvous you might be dismissed. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Hold your horses. You may feel like beginning a new project but it could be best to lay low until the stars are more favor- able for your enterprising spirit. IF AUGUST 6 IS YOUR BIRTH- DAY: Tackle physical projects like yardwork or cleaning and make an effort to be at your competitive peak at the work- place throughout the next four to six weeks. Take pride in your executive abilities but steer clear of new romantic ties and investments in September. In October your schedule might be filled with myriad respon- sibilities but you can handle them easily by being organized.
