Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
