TEABREAK


Happy birthday:
It will take more effort than normal to
get anything done today. Fortunately
this is just a temporary situation. It
might be a good idea to put off difficult
tasks until your luck recovers. Your
lucky numbers: 1, 4, 6, 10, 14.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
You may be feeling a little
dissatisfied with your life,
but things on the whole
are actually pretty good. A
change from the norm will help shake
things up and allow you to appreciate
what you have. Money matters are look-
ing up. ✭✭✭✭

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Organization will be the
name of the game today.
Keeping your personal
paperwork in order will save
you a lot of time and money in the near
future. Blue will be your lucky color.
✭✭✭

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Your family has high
hopes for you. While you
may feel that you have a
responsibility to live up to
their expectations, don’t carry more on
your shoulders than you can handle.
Outdoor activities will put some spice in
your life. ✭✭✭

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
A bit of spontaneity will

thing new. ✭✭✭

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
You have what it takes to
achieve anything you want,
now you just need to figure
out what that will be. Take
some time out tonight to reflect on
what you want out of life. Others will
respond to your imagination and ideas.
✭✭✭

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
This evening will be a great

able to please everyone, so
choose where you want to focus your
energies very carefully. Education will
be key to getting ahead at work. ✭✭✭
