GEMINI (May 21 June If you're doing or going for the first time, get advice from somebody who's been there. But remember you are not the same sort of person. It is well to question all details CANCER (June 21 July So much of what seems reasonable now is based on assumed "facts" that are not quite true, or which may change. Career prospects are cloudy. Don't try to rush anything LEO (July 23 -Aug. It isn't only mechanical or physical obstacles that are prominent today, it's hasty, temperamental people. See that you are within reason. Concentrate on sound results VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. It's not your fault that others don't follow your logic, but it may be if you bicker over arrangements. Accept a com- promise, then clear oif regular responsibilities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Any separation now is apt to be final if not permanent, still nothing will be quite the same again. Instead of mak- ing peace you may be getting in the middle. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Pursue current objec- tives Put in that solid effort which pushes the project to successful conclusions. The challenge of afternoon- evening requires resource- fulness, quick thinking SAGITTARIUS (NOV, 22 -Dec.

Keep things simple by offering no extra criticism or side issues Redeem your promises, pay your bills make definite arrangements you can maintain. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Be consistent and remain steady on the job despite tendencies to distraction over emotional stress. There is no way to get at the cause of your concern just now PISCES (Feb. 19 March Financial moves continue to be sensitive, with an over- emphasized suggesttion of haste where there is no real urgency Get routines finished so you don't have to repeat ef- fort (1973, The Chicago Tribune) Ask Andy SKYLAB Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Tammy Turley, age 14, of Zionsville.
