The Board’s behavior is unacceptable and harms the fund’s...

The Sun is in Cancer. The shy crab is an intelligent creature that carries its home and armor on its back. This makes an interesting pairing with Mercury in Leo. Our ideas will become grander with a little focus on the details. Madame G recommends digging-deep and exploring all possibilities. Don’t limit yourself! You can always figure out the logistics later.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

With this daily progress, you’ll notice that there is great improvement and that you reached your goals before you realized it. Take stock of your surroundings and keep heading toward the sun and...
