In 1940: During World War II, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill paid tribute to the Royal Air Force before the House of Commons, saying, "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Use a reliable friend or adviser as a sounding board before implementing new ideas.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Bend with the wind. A few surprises could be in store. Just hang loose and don't allow a change in plans to put you off.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Remember that like attracts like. Your strength lies in your ability to be a faithful and trustworthy partner.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do your best not to offend anyone and avoid making irrevocable decisions. Put your organizational skills to good use.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your phone might buzz like a hive of bees. Chatterboxes are likely to be drawn to you and brighten up your day.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You could make mistakes in the rush to make necessary changes on time or to escape from limiting situations.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Rewards come to those who deserve them. People might be willing to perform favors for you.
