Star for the Day
No horoscope is true for
everyone. Only a self-selected few may benefit from the forecasts
20 - April 19): Be yourself today - 100% you. The world needs
more individuality. Revel in your unique qualities of spitting
anywhere and be generous with sharing them with the world. Feel
free to adopt new, unconventional and noisy ways of discharging
your inner sediments. Beware, however, that there may be a strong,
grounding force that is trying to tie you down to social norms,
such as toilet basins. Introduce your ideas to the world and
watch as magical things start to happen, viz. Dhaka City Corporation
forgetting to collect the garbage for the whole week.
Taurus (April 20 - May 19): Today you can make
great progress in all of your endeavours, such as asking your
tenant to pay his dues of the last two years. Be careful, however,
of dissuasion from other people. There may be a cloud of surrealism
that is covering up reality. You may need to do a little digging
to find the truth, whether he really has an MK19 hidden in the
back garden. Maintain a mellow attitude in order to stay safe,
as if you are not interested in the money. Sudden, extreme actions
that are fuelled by anger from his side are likely to get you
into trouble. Psst! don't show him this copy of SWM.
Gemini (May 20 - June 20):Tune in to your TV
today. Do you often get an intense sense of jealousy when it
seems like people on Chaya Chando are living these amazing lives
while you are stuck in a dull and boring routine of switching
channels? The only person who can pull yourself out of this
rut is you, so stop complaining and simply do it. Pick up anything
and start dancing around the nearest tree. Changing is much
easier than it may seem at first. Therefore, change into something
colourful. Dump the pastel fabrics. Let your imagination take
control and wait for that someone. Work towards manifesting
your most fanciful goals. There you go! Who told you to watch
Cancer (June 21 - July 21): There are extremely
slow moving energies that are coming into play today. What they
are providing, however, is a key to manifesting your wildest
dreams of reaching your office on time. Fantasy can become your
reality, but it may only come one small step at a time if you
are caught in a jam. Get down and start walking. Don't give
up. Focus on the unconventional way of getting things done,
such as taking off your shoes and running. You will eventually
achieve everything your heart desires as long as you truly believe
that you can get there before your boss. No forecast required
to predict that he too is caught in a jam.
Leo (July 22 - Aug. 22): There may be a great
deal of conflict in your life today, and bills of different
service organisations seem to be pulling you to different banks
in all directions. Your sanity is being put to the test. Try
not to be too stubborn about paying on schedule, for this will
only cause more tension among you and the three-hour queues
that you encounter before reaching each booth. You also have
the potential of stressing out over the smallest things, such
as an additional zero on the right side of your bill amount.
Try to avoid this scenario if you can by unsubscribing from
public services. Go back to rural wisdom of going to bed at
sunset. Also start believing in the ancient motto: the world
is my loo.
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept. 21): Consider making
some long-term investments, both monetary and emotional. Pay
your tuition fees now and hope for a rich spouse in the future.
There is a great deal of prosperity available to you now, but
beware of being deceived by others. Do not agree to getting
married while studying. Your would-be would be too upset with
such an academic attitude. Everyone yearns for some attention
on wedding night. But in order to take full advantage of this
chance offered by the cosmos, you would be better to spend more
time alone, or allow a break in order to be able to reflect
on what you want to achieve and where you are really going.
In other words, study hard.
Libra (Sept. 22 - Oct. 22): Your social life
seems to be on cloud nine, as you have many distant relatives
visiting for the summer holidays. Don't even think about staying
in, despite the rains, as you just can't afford to waste the
opportunities of getting away from them. But your ruling planet,
Venus, also moves into Leo, so you will be the centre of the
attention at whatever gathering you are a part of, primarily
because you are the only one with an umbrella on the street.
Introducing a leak on the roof, having a toilet flush that does
not work and setting up creepy insects will ensure invasion
is not repeated next year.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Don't gamble away
your resources. Take the safest route. Borrow some money from
a nationalised bank. There is a great deal of force out there
encouraging you to act, but with all the money you have you
could become a producer. So go for a big amount. Maintain a
strong and healthy balance between old and new stars. Try to
be more open to change, because they might just do so in front
of you. Fear not as your career path is open to new opportunities
that could leave you speechless. Whether you have been thinking
of changing jobs, things are looking good as you have the Moon
right behind you, cheering you along. Most failed producers
have become night guards.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Get things
out in the open today. As the sun could be out after a week
of rain and clouds, it is a good day for drying things. If it
seems like someone is insulting you, pretend you do not understand.
But letting things fester inside will only result in the destruction
of your own self-esteem. So getting a dog to do the barking
back helps; street dogs and neighbour's dogs allowed. But your
abusive friend could also feign vacuity. This could very well
be one of those situations in which everyone else sees the truth
except you, that a dog is a dog is a dog. Don't let others pull
the wool over your eyes. Keep away from sheep.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Even if partnership
matters (permanent or footloose) have taken a new turn since
the introduction of road dividers compel your rickshaw/car to
travel an extra five hundred yards to reach your opposite sign,
you have everything you need to take any relationship into deeper
and more satisfying waters. Using feet cuts travel distance
but roads could be flooded. The sheer number of beneficial influences
in your house of joint financial matters and deep one-to-one
bonds indicates that a little mystery (missing money) and magic
(use your imagination) will go a long way. As Venus moves into
Leo later in the week, you will find that you also attract opportunities
to increase your investments with some fresh sweet-talking symbols.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 17): Every day brings
new opportunities and the chance for rapid advancement. Grab
hold of all filled-up areas and clogged-up drains being offered
to you. Coming down from the hills up north, you have a great
deal of potential, but potential is one of those things that
do no good until you actively harness it. Today is one of those
days in which you can take an important step toward manifesting
your dreams of inundating uncharted areas of the city. Although
one is coming down and the other is going up, you will get ample
support from the torrential rain and the unscrupulous developers.
Also be kind to politicians when they pose for a photograph
in knee-deep you.
Pisces (Feb. 18 - Mar. 19): Adjustments may
need to be made for you to relate well to people who elected
you and who did not. Somehow things are a bit off kilter and
you may find that the harder you try to fit into Iraq, the more
you are apt to feel like an oddball. In future try not to get
caught up in other people's battles. In future also get UN sanction
as the world got for Liberia. Work to maintain a balance between
real life (the actual world) and fantasy (the world you envisage
from your high stool). Be careful that you don't get so caught
up in someone else's world that you forget to deal with your
own. It could harm your second term prospects.
