Aries (March 21-April 19)

Blame the stars! It’s roasting outside and you’re still ordering your lattes extra hot. You’re still sporting leather riding boots and a lightweight coat. You feel great, but your friends look at you a bit oddly. I call it the contrary star and you’re under its spell. No need for concern though, but gently push yourself into summertime before you get heatstroke.

Used, abused, addicted drinkers, a profit making jail is wanted in drunk city, if you refuse to understand that you must first help yourselves or God will not help you. Then a potter’s field like the one that Judas paid for with his betrayal and...
