Daily Horoscope

By Linda C. Black Tribune Media Services Today’s Birthday (April 7). This year you’ll learn the value of playing by the rules. Learn them first, and well, to gain a hidden advantage. Then, make changes for the better. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) _ Today is a 9 _ Before you can advance, you’ll need to take care of business close to home. Don’t cut corners. Do it right, or it’ll take even longer. Taurus (April 20-May 20) _ Today is a 5 _ Don’t put a lot of extra stuff on your agenda for today. Give yourself a break. Just making ends meet will be difficult enough. Gemini (May 21-June 21) _ Today is an 8 _ It’s time for a change, and you’re liable to be the one who makes it happen. Stand up for basic values. Others are listening. Cancer (June 22-July 22) _ Today is a 6 _ Don’t assume you’re so smart that you can break the rules. Listen and learn so that you’ll know what to expect. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) _ Today is a 9 _ Your friends are behind you 100 percent, and that’s a wonderful feeling. However, don’t goof off and forget to do your job. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) _ Today is a 5 _ Stay in communication with the person in charge of the cash. The two of you need to keep a lid on everyone else’s spending. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) _ Today is a 9 _ You’re finding out the inside story on a lot of different topics. The more questions you ask, the more secrets you’ll learn. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) _ Today is a 5 _ Others are making a lot of noise but not really saying anything. They’re letting you know how much they know, and how much they don’t. Continue to listen carefully and take notes. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) _ Today is an 8 _ The debate is made even more interesting by the fact that sometimes your adversary is right. To show you’re wise as well as smart, adopt the suggestions that work. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) _ Today is a 5 _ You’re still way too busy, but tomorrow should be better. Prepare to delegate, and you’ll be even more efficient. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) _ Today is an 8 _ When you’ve settled on rules that work for you both, you’ll find that life becomes a lot easier. You’re building a structure to depend upon, so put in the time that’s required. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) _ Today is a 5 _ While juggling career and home life, ever wonder which side will win? Home life, of course. But it may take some fancy dancin’ to get much free time at home during this busy week. ___ ‘copy 2003, TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES INC.
