Cancer Concerns about debt, investments, and other financial matters may be weighing heavily on your mind. Aspects suggest you may be worrying about things that have not yet happened and may never become a problem. Meanwhile your social life is rolling in the fast lane.
Leo Let all those you love know how much you care. Sound like a Hallmark card? Well, somebody, probably a Lion or Lioness, wrote that for a reason. Your feelings and love run deep as a river, and there are those about whom you are concerned this year. Don't let the opportunity pass.
