Leo Should Visit
By Mark Orion
For Tuesday. Dec 9 through Thursday.
Dec ... 1986:
ARIES—A critical, but not necessarily
crucial situation at home takes most of
your time. Something that didn't appear
to be working out at all could work out
well with proper attention. It may not be
easy, but you'll be glad you did
TAURUS—That sudden change in
work or career has your mental energies
in high gear. The kind of intense conversations that usually drain you now do just
the opposite: they add fuel to the fire of
your high-energy life. You're definitely
moving in the right direction
GEMINI—Somebody with a mighty
good line may try to get you to settle
down. If it feels like you're being tied up,
break loose. If it instead feels like a good
committment, give it some consideration.
Learn by listening, and read eyes as well
CANCER—Wouldn't you know it? Just
when you were out frolicking and being
silly, and having a gay old time, up comes
something serious and beautiful Now.
what do you do about all this? Easy Get
serious and beautiful, and oh, my. what a
difference a day makes!
LEO—A good time for visiting or getting in touch with relatives. The relaxation that you enjoyed last week should
nave put you in a warm and receptive
frame of mind. Getting a good look at
where you came from gives a much
clearer picture of where you're going.
VIRGO—An excellent time to buy or
sell property A little-expected offer may
come out of the blue, and who are you to
argue with prosperity? It may require a bit
of a push on your part, but then who's
better with a little push than a Virgo?
LIBRA-What's better than a real
friend9 Your wealth in friendships has
never been richer. Both old acquaintances whom you haven't seen in years, and
a new friend that you may be seeing a lot
more of keeps reminding you of what's
truly important in your life.
SCORPIO—A change in work and
career could just happen right now.
Something out of the blue may turn
things completely around This, in turn.
could cause a change in relationships
Are you ready for a fast ride! Let's go, let's
go. let's go!
SAGITTARIUS- Combine torrid and
steaming with heavenly dreaming, and
what do you get? A very horny Sagittar-
ian? Something like that. Those of you
unused to heavy cruising may surprise
yourselves. In fantasy, you don't have to
return all glances, but chances are good
for finding a good one,
CAPRICORN-Well, la-de-dah Looks
who's lovely and sparkling and fine1
There's a beautiful brilliance about you
that's blinding, especially for those who
live in dark places. Keep it up. out there in
the sun, having it all For you at least,
being very hot, feeling very good.
AQUARIUS-Relax Relieve the tension Escape the frenzy, and find that cool
and quiet place inside yourself that you
know is there. Read a good book. Meditate. Go for a hike in the woods. Give
yourself some much-needed breathing
PISCES This week should find you
being domestic for a change. Clean
house and expect company for dinner.
Cupid comes a-callin', so a good time is
had by all.
