By Dee Price Miller

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Not only are you attracted to new people, but you release some old friends because you have changed. You want to be with people who are fresh and stimulating and can show you a new point of view. You are ready to change various things in your life and get rid of some obligations that no longer belong in your life. You consider what you have left undone and what changes will serve you best in the future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 23) You have to pay the piper now for wrong decisions you made in the past. Do everything that is expected of you, do it well and do it on time. Be assertive in going after what you want. Pay special attention to details and commit yourself to tasks that you do. It will pay off soon. Donít let others tell you what you should do. Decide that for yourself. You will not get as much done as you would like to, but keep plugging if you want to change your life.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) It is a good time to review your personal interests and change your routine to represent more of your own interests. Are you contented with your life? Are there enough mentally stimulating activities and conversations to keep you on your toes? Balance your own needs against your responsibilities to other people and do what makes you happy. Make changes now when you feel brave and confident.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Other people are responsible for your strong desire for change now. You feel guided or forced into making big changes. Spur-of-the-moment ideas and invitations appeal to you. If life seems stodgy and stale it is time to take chances and make changes. You are the only one who can shape your life and make it nearer to your heartís desire. It will be difficult but the time is ripe for it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Read Scorpioís message as it applies to you, too. Just avoid hasty, unplanned moves. You are still going to have to meet your obligations and be a reliable person others can count on. Powerful forces are at work in your life now and it is up to you whether you accept them or fight them. You are independent and compulsive but there is always someone or something to keep you in check.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) New approaches to old situations can really pay off now. Use your imagination and be creative when looking for solutions to your problems.

It is an excellent time to write and to teach. Someone has caught your eye and you want to be with the person all the time.

PISCES (Feb. 20 to March 20) You are ready for a Pity Party when your own needs seem to be less important than everyone elseís. Stay away from negative people and situations now. Life is more complicated and there are more demands placed on you right now, but there is also the promise of greater success and personal career growth. It is hard not to feel pressured. Be responsible without stepping on anyoneís toes.

ARIES (March 21 to April 20) This is not the time to break free of restrictions that you feel are holding you back. Donít take risks or chances. There is room for improvements in home and family matters if you go at it slowly. Use personal contacts to make good things happen in your life because your own magnetism is high now. Donít let the demands of other people overwhelm you. Sometimes you just have to say no. Be willing to listen, but donít give in.

TAURUS (April 21 to May 21) You need space to be alone now and think about your future. Try to get in touch with the spiritual side of life and be free from routine as much as possible.

It is easy to become fascinated with ideas that are different. Complicated ideas are especially challenging to you now.

GEMINI (May 22 to June 21) It is time you stopped dodging your obligations to other people. Make a list of what you have received from others and be creative in showing your gratitude. People you associate with now make you feel you have known them before this lifetime, and perhaps you have. Compromise quickly, rather than argue, when disagreements arise. This makes you closer to them pleases you both, and gives you new ideas about sticky situations.

CANCER (Jun. 22 to Jul. 22) If you are sure about what you truly want in life, go after it. It will be a slow process, but definitely worth the effort.
