It would be a good idea to guard against first impressions. Keep long term plans to yourself. What is more, you must not discuss personal problems. Actually, your chart shows a ...betrayal. Don't air your grievances. Things should begin to pay off. So curb the urge to harp about being a victim of yesterday's misfortunes. For no apparent reason, most members of your sign tend to become hostile toward an associate. Unless you are careful a friendship might end. Remember, the cost of failure is nothing. Put greater effort toward your job. task or project. Incidentally, associates might be trouble some. There's ho repeal to the law of averages. So, after your string of losers this week, you'll hit a winner! It $eems as though a member of the opposite sex-wants' to exchange secrets. Anyway, it's not,a good time to become too familiar -nWithout exception. For 'most members of your sign , it's time to guard against the philosophy of: Do unto others before they do unto you. Mqst members of your sign will be in the mood to "get out of their skin." So, you'll be "someone else" during this cosmic cycle. Look for trouble and you'll find it. This week, you'll need provocation like a Moose needs a hat rack ! It's time to yield, placate. You should do well in all departments of life. Incidentally, a romance that fs functioning behind the scene, will, in one way or another, benefit you! Review your relationship with a member of the opposite sex. It seems as though you'll at tempt to make a lie function as well as the truth. WINTER TOMATOES OFTEN NEED KITCHEN RIPENING Because a completely ripe tomato is too perishable to trael very far from Florida fields, winter tomatoes reach the dinner plate in better Condition if they are picked "mature green" and allowed to finish ripening in the warmth of the home kitchen. Botanically, tomatoes are fruits and ones which love being comfortably warm. Un til fully red -ripe, cold shocks them, interfering with attractive reddening" and flavor development. Growers do not refrigerate them in transit as they do for most vegetables and fruits. Homemakers should follow their example. When you buy tomatoes which are not fully red in the store, leave them at room temperature for sev eral days, until they soften and turn the shade of red you want. (Place them stem end up, say the experts, to prevent bruising as they ripen.) Refrigerate the tomatoes only when nicely red, soft and juicy, but then let them stand at room temperature for an hour or so before serving because that enhances the tart-sweet flavor. Fresh tomato slices are delicious in a nicely herbed, garlicky dressing or a tar ragon mayonnaise. For variety, add sliced onion rings, cucumbers or raw zucchini.
