Almost 3 billion people in the world live on less than $2.50 a day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will teach others how to be self-sufficient. It's a gift that goes beyond anything material you could offer. Your students might not understand the value for years to come, but eventually they will get it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may feel helpless to do anything about today's strange scene, but that's where you're wrong. Circumstances change simply because you observe them. You're stronger than you know.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You could be tricky if you wanted to be, but you'll probably see no need since people give you exactly what you want when you ask for it in a straightforward and sincere manner.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll be drawn to those who are trying to go beyond themselves to accomplish, learn or share something. You belong in this group, as you stretch to do, understand and give more.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're getting to be well known for the fact that you follow through. It doesn't matter if it's a small matter or a big one. You make sure to complete the cycle of each action you take on, and this makes you lucky.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You notice everything now. You may obsess over minor elements that no one but you will care about, and that's what makes your work great. Excellence is in the details.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You need someone and don't realize it. Reach out. Dare to be vulnerable. Ask questions. Otherwise, you will continue to feel like you have it all together, not knowing the difference.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "In a meditation this evening, I saw a door. The door was wooden, maybe pine wood, with a black doorknob, and I saw the black hinges. I thought it would be a new opportunity, but when reading my dream book, the symbol said the door meant 'liberation.' What do you think?"
How intriguing! I love doors: portals to different worlds. I believe that you are a different person every time you open a door and step forward. You are influenced by the new world behind the door, and the new world is forever changed because of your influence, even if you don't do anything more than observe. And if the door leads to your own bedroom or back yard, these places are still new worlds. They were one way before you arrived, and your arrival opens a host of fresh possibilities.
I think you're right about the "opportunity." The symbols in your meditations or dreams belong to you. Before you consult the books, ask yourself what they mean to you, and try to go as deep as you can with your inquiry. For instance, did the door open outward or inward? Was it easy or difficult to open? What was your feeling standing in the doorway?
