Tom Cruise, Whoopi Goldberg, Paul McCartney, Oprah Winfrey, Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie dominantly use their left hand. 2. When placed on their tummies, babies who turn out to be left- handed tend to turn their heads to the left. This may be coincidental, but it is a trend that is recurring. 3. Left-handed people are smarter. Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Benjamin Franklin and Isaac Newton were all lefties! 4. Lefties are good at art and drawn to careers in art and music. Research has shown that left-handed people may really be more artistically inclined. There is evidence that lefties are better at divergent thinking. 5. Many artistic representations of Satan depict him as left-handed! This possibly is the reason why nuns used to force children to write with their right hand even if they were left-handed.

LEO July 23-Aug 22 A quiet week, but a good time for getting in touch with yourself and mapping out short range goals. Recent uncertainties, especially regarding your domestic situation are favourably resolved. VIRGO Aug 23-Sept 22 Suggestions you give are always so ‘on target’, that you are regarded as an inspired advice columnist. Sometimes you doubt your own counsel. A financial mystery is solved by Thursday. LIBRA Sept 23-Oct 22 You are in the mood to go after everything. First place is all you are interested in. Some may find your attitude refreshing, others may be intimidated. SCORPIO Oct 23-Nov 21 This is a week of puzzles and you need to draw on the wisdom of an older person to solve a mystery. If traditional approaches don’t bring expected results, opt for a more experimental style. SAGITTARIUS Nov 22-Dec 22 You switch back and forth between hectic and lazy days during this curious week. Friends may approach you for advice and/ or sympathy. CAPRICORN Dec 23-Jan 20 This week has a carnival feeling. Children, laughter and a buzz of excitement are all part of the scene. Two special areas of caution: Clothing (it’s easy to dress inappropriately) and diet (it’s easy to forget meal-times). AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 Your natural charm shines and your social life will begin to sparkle. Your temperature may rise over a small crisis. Strive for more independence on the weekend. PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 You are about to catch up – and about to be overwhelmed once again with work and people – but – and it’s an especially important ‘but’ for singles – don’t miss out on social functions. ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 Casual visits turn into memorable occasions and spontaneous calls touch you deeply. This is the week for self pampering. Treat yourself to a warm soak after a hard day. TAURUS Apr 21-May 22 Your intellectual powers are strong and the week offers the potential for a major accomplishment. Friends may return old favours and beg new ones. Noisy surroundings may drive you out of your home. GEMINI May 23-June 21 Family members decide to show their devotion. It’s been a while since they have shown their affection. A VIP may be visiting your home or office so some homework on his/her field. CANCER June 22-July 22 You could find yourself untangling a web of conflicting ideas at the workplace. Pay attention to the most minute of financial details and don’t be so easily convinced you are wrong.
