Spend and spend: It's in your stars


October 07, 2001|By Rob Hiaasen | Rob Hiaasen,Sun Staff

The president's message is clear: Americans need to go places and buy stuff. Since Sept. 11, even the daily horoscope has assumed a decidedly patriotic and commercial tone. Read on -- it's your civic duty:

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Pursue your talents with a new burst of energy. Note Southwest Airlines' deliciously low fares through this month. Check out the Big Lots store in Dundalk.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Take charge of your own destiny. Lucky situations involve the artistic world. No better time than now to score tickets for The Full Monty on Broadway.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Old Zodiac: Money matters go well now, but just remember, lavish gifts won't buy love. New Zodiac: Money matters go well now, but just remember, Nordstrom's Fall Sale is still on.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Pinpoint objectives in business. Casual acquaintances suddenly become important to you. Take a stranger to Paris.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Be thoughtful of the feelings of others. E-mail everyone you have ever criticized and ask for forgiveness. Offer to take them to see The Lion King on Broadway. Maybe a late dinner at Sardi's.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Money comes your way within three weeks. Take action. Give $100 to your company's matching fund for the terrorism victims. Be a patriot and buy a Lexus 300 five-speed -- $2,800 down, $379 a month.

Aries (March 21-April 19) If you model integrity, others will follow your lead. Lighten up. Go see Zoolander. Go to Blockbuster and rent This is Spinal Tap.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) You hold the key to success. You can excel in any field you choose -- just don't try upstaging the firefighter during Career Day at your child's elementary school.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) Estimations that affect business prosperity may prove to be incorrect. Stocks look strong for companies making ammunition, blast-proof windows and protective suits. Build an addition to your home, even if you rent.

Cancer (June 22-July 22) If single, you encounter future mate. Buy her a Lexus. Honeymoon immediately in New York. Lunch at Carnegie Deli. Shop uncontrollably at Macy's.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Sleep on financial decisions. Then, wake up the next day and buy a 50-foot Sea Ray yacht for only $539,000.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Having contacted and reunited with everyone you know, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo and Virgo now play major roles in your life. Take them all to Disney World.
