ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty is, as always, admirable. But you might want to be more tactful in discussing a sensitive issue with a family member. Remember: You can give advice without giving offense. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unex- pected workplace snag should be handled quickly and efficiently so that it leaves you time for family get-togethers. Also, you might soon get that long-sought apology. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)Aspects favor family matters, especially where children might be involved. Spending time with loved ones helps restore some much-needed bal- ance to your typically busy schedule. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That seem- ingly clear-cut agreement might not be quite so straightforward after all. Recheck for lan- guage that could make you liable for hidden costs and other unpleasant surprises. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Careful, Kitty. Better to deal with someone with proven re- liability than with a big talker who promises much but can't confirm that he or she will de- liver. Your social life really zings this week- end. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your matchmaking skills are at peak performance levels both in helping to staff workplace teams for upcoming projects and for bringing people together on a more personal basis. Potato salad will have more flavor if you whisk together all the dressing in- gredients and add it to the potatoes when they are warm. The potatoes will absorb the ingredients bette r , and the flavor will develop even more during refrigeration. Dill planted near tomatoes will draw caterpillars away from the fruits. And it's delicious. "I love to grill, and when it's nice out, we grill every weekend. I always put on extra and use the leftovers through the week. Chicken in salad, a nice flank steak for fajitas, etc. And it means less cooking for me!" -- Y.L. in Maryland Here's a great recipe for an icy treat: Freeze orange juice or apple juice in ice trays. Throw a handful in the blender for a fruit slush that can't be beat on a hot day. "A lot of smoke was coming off our grill, and our patio doors were wide open. Long story short: It swamped the living room with smoke. The smell was a little overwhelming. After we closed the door, my neighbor doused a kitchen towel with white vinegar, wrung it out and waved it around the room. It cleared out the smoke smell right away, and the vinegar smell went away just as quickly. What a mira- cle!" -- F.F. in South Carolina Rubbing alcohol can be used to remove ballpoint-pen ink from most upholstery. Out on a Limb by Gary Kopervas 1 ); t t $ o 13 Kuff SIH&'TgE#6 T0u  f, oMwHEK'E T0gt4PI K R.F.D. by Mike Marland [N OWTFj4"RE BAII'TI-IAT /ltlll " SO...)'LL BEE A AT t  . | ,00ll) i LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You're finally seeing some progress with your new venture. But be prepared for it to continue at a slower pace than you're used to. Mean- while, a loved one could be preparing a sur- prise. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A family member's success pulls you into the spotlight as well. Enjoy it, but don't let it overshadow or otherwise obstruct what you're doing with your own creative projects. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Using what you already know might not be quite enough to get a proposed project off the ground. Look for any new information that might help tilt the scales in your favor. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Good news: While a changing workplace en- vironment can be daunting for some, it could be the challenge you've been hoping for. If so, confront it with confidence and move on. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) It's a good time to recheck travel arrangements for any changes that could work to your ad- vantage. Aspects also favor strengthening and restoring old, fraying relationships. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Using your intuitive reasoning helps you cut right through the double-talk and go straight to what's really going on around you. Stay the course until all your questions are answered. BORN THIS WEEK: You radiate light and warmth, and others love being close to you. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. 1.
