Daily horoscopes: February 19, 2018


(March 20 – April 19):

Don’t be put off by a new acquaintance’s brusque manner.  You often start out on the wrong foot with people who go on to become major influences in your life.


(April 20 – May 20):

Doing the right thing doesn’t always garner a hearty show of thanks, but that’s OK.  You’ll receive your round of applause soon enough.


(May 21 – June 20):

You keep asking a friend to be in your corner and his/her response is always non-committal.  Stop looking for support from someone who has no intention of giving it.


(June 21 – July 21):

Lead with your beliefs and not your suspicions.  You will make more headway hoping for the best rather than fearing the worst.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

You can’t keep coming to a friend’s rescue only to be ignored after the crisis subsides.  Ask what’s in it for you before pulling this person’s fat out of the fire again.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

You need to reassess matters.  You may be so focused on a goal that you don’t realize you may have already achieved much of what you set out to do.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

You hate to lead someone on, but there may be little choice considering the difficulty you’ve been having with getting this person to see reason.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

You may not hear the answer you want, but you will get the next best thing—and that’s an explanation you can live with.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

It looks like an enterprise has run aground, but don’t abandon hope yet.  It may be on the rocks, but this is no shipwreck.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Faith may move mountains, but nothing could have prepared you for today’s sudden shift.  What was insurmountable is now in reach.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

On the job changes go better than expected.  The end result is a healthy balance between work and pay.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Denial is a defense mechanism designed to get you through a rough time, but now that it’s passed you’re ready for the truth.
