Daily Horoscope

By Linda C. Black Tribune Media Services Today’s Birthday (Feb. 18). This is not a good year to take risks with your money or with your heart. Keep things as stable as you possibly can in spite of planned and unforeseen changes. You can do it by juggling. It’s a great skill to learn. 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 6 _ Don’t assume that everything you learned is true, or that everything you heard is false. Street smarts work better now than book smarts. Taurus (April 20-May 20) _ Today is a 7 _ The final outcome could be expensive if you’re not careful. Don’t try to bail out a loved one who’s in a jam. You’d interfere with his or her education. Gemini (May 21-June 21) _ Today is a 6 _ A disagreement about household matters may have you stuck, but don’t despair. You agree that a change is necessary, so start there. Cancer (June 22-July 22) _ Today is a 6 _ Establish a routine to help you deal with the variables. You might feel as if you’re herding cats, so use every trick in your book. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) _ Today is a 6 _ A partner may be able to express your position better than you can. Meanwhile, don’t waste money on toys or trinkets. Put a temporary hold on spending. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) _ Today is a 6 _ It may sometimes seem like you’re taking a stand and standing there all by yourself. That’s not really true when there’s love on your side, and in this situation, there is. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) _ Today is an 8 _ Are your conscious and subconscious intentions in alignment? In other words, are you sure of the outcome you want? Better check. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) _ Today is a 7 _ Go over your budget with a critical eye. You may be wasting a lot more than you realize. Plug those leaks! Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) _ Today is a 6 _ Plans are apt to go awry due to changes that are beyond your control. Remember your objective, and be flexible. You may have to get there using a different route. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) _ Today is a 7 _ In order to expand your influence, revisions may be required. What worked in a smaller space is inadequate now. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) _ Today is a 6 _ Finish up yesterday’s task and whatever else is on your lists. That’ll give you more time for fun should the opportunity knock. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) _ Today is a 6 _ Go over your expenses one more time, and project what else you might need. The process you’re involved with keeps changing. Stay flexible and keep control. ___ ‘copy 2003, TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES INC. Distributed by Knight Ridder/Tribune Information Services.
