ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death.
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
WITNESS: Take a guess.

ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his
sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?

ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the twenty-year-old, how old is he?

You may fear being ordinary or jealous if you don’t come in first. A silly argument could deteriorate into a shouting match if you’re too wrapped up in yourself. Overreaching has no lasting results. It would be a mistake to spread any sort of gossip or rumor.

You may be feeling rather extravagant. Avoid gambling – there is a high probability you will lose. This is not your day to win the lottery. Use your network of friends and connections to discover important resources for current projects. A clean and uncluttered house supports clear thinking.

You may not feel like you’re exactly clicking with anything today. Adjustments will need to be made either by you or the people you’re dealing with for any resolution to come about. Your emotions may feel tied to the ground, yet your mind may want to take off into the stratosphere. Dilemmas between whether to take action or stay passive could leave you paralyzed. Just go with the flow.

Changes to your chosen field are indicated. Ideas from other states or countries might fire your creativity. Your intellectual or artistic interests could take on a new dimension, expanding your horizons and opening new opportunities. You might toy with the idea of travel, perhaps to learn more about these matters. Possible formal education in new fields is also indicated.

This isn’t the time to give in to stress over the unknown. It’s natural to be afraid, but this doesn’t have to stop you. You can be an island of good sense and helpful actions in troubled times. Visualize the world you want for the next generation.

Make time for romance and a spirit of fun today. If you are single, this is a lucky day to schedule a first date. If you have a sweetheart, think of something you can do that brings you closer together. This does not mean you need to spend a lot of money.

You are trying too hard to do everything alone. Stop being an island and let people in. Life isn’t an individual sport. Interact with people, participate in events and socialise. It will also boost your confidence. Sometimes, outside events can lead you in a direction that you can neither predict nor imagine.

This may be one of those days when feeling anxious is the norm. Although you tend to be a worrier, it’s important to remember that only about two percent of what you fear is actually going to come true. Make a resolution to look on the positive side.

Your romantic side is flying high today. The opposite sex in general and your own partner in particular are going to seem especially attractive to you. You could also see in an entirely different light someone you think of as a friend. An increasingly busy social life is in the air, so expect some invitations to parties or other social events.
