I like to read my daily horoscope in the newspaper every day. As you may have seen from my previous post, I don't put all that much credence in it if it's bad but I use it to brighten my day when it is good. I have serious doubts that something printed in a newspaper could really apply to everyone born under the same sign, but I'll take good news where I can get it! Today's blurb was particularly appropo so I share it with you here:

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep that nose to the grindstone. [ya think?!] Move social matters to the back burner to work hard and impress the boss. [by "boss" I am thinking bar exam essay grader] Put off major decisions and avoid taking initiatives for the next several days. [Several days is a week, no?]

Since I am sure not everyone is waiting with baited breath to read my horoscope I will share the rest of the signs with you. I was just going to link you to the newspaper and let you see for yourself, however apparently the Asbury Park Press doesn't put them on the internet. So, looks like I have to retype them all. For you people .... all for you!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your charm and sex appeal put a positive spin on your reputation, but don't rely on personality to make it through tight spots. This isn't the time to take chances with career or push an agenda.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you ignore molehills, they won't turn into mountains. Remain sensitive to the moods of grumpy people who may pop into view over the next few days. Be smart and avoid conflicts.

CANCER (June21-July 22): No matter what they dish out, you can take it. The next few days can try your patience, but it's best to sit on your hands and avoid drastic reactions. Honor responsibilities and obligations.

LEO (July23-Aug. 22): Some temporary turmoil could be at hand, and the best way to deal with it is to stay cool, calm and levelheaded. Don't magnify negativity out of proportion, as you could make a crucial mistake.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Sit back and let other people spin their wheels. The best action under these stars is inaction. No matter how much aggravation you experience, don't slam a door behind you that might lock you out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Stormy celestial weather is ahead for a few days, so batten down the hatches. Be careful to dot your i's and cross your t's in business matters and avoid taking unnecessary shortcuts.

SCORPIO (Oct.23-Nov.21): Toe the line for the next several days. You are a powerhouse of determination - but just don't try to bulldoze your way through any obstacles that appear. A wait-and-see attitude works best.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take it easy. If you are in a hurry when everyone else is at a standstill, there could be a collision. Delay making major decisions and starting projects until conditions improve.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It's the stiff and unbending tree that breaks in a storm. Avoid being rigid - and don't be such a stickler about the rules. You need to pay your debts, but give others some leeway.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): Girls (or guys) just want to have fun. Partners might be under a great deal of pressure and not amused by a playful attitude. Avoid signing contracts or otherwise wheeling and dealing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The atmosphere is taking a somber turn for a few days, so don't push your luck. Get those priorities in order and be sure to live up to responsibilities. Avoid conflicts with close friends.

OK, so MOST of these could apply to bar exam studiers. hmmm. Anyway, whether you are studying for the impending bar exam or not - ENJOY!

Note: These horoscopes are all from the July 19, 2005 edition of the Asbury Park Press and appear under the byline of Jeraldine Saunders.
