relax and restore your energy.

the status dynamics of the

FAMILY CIRCUS being unkind. But are you really
enabling the other people?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). When you really need to
get down to work, even the
slightest distraction is a terrible
waste because it pulls you out
of the moment, wasting time
on both sides of said moment.
Ward against distraction! It’s
costlier than you think!
