Leo (July 23 — Aug. 22)

Considering the speed at which your life is moving, just a gentle nudge would be all it takes to radically alter your trajectory. One such small adjustment could have unexpected consequences. For the next day or so, you really ought to slow down.

Gemini (May 21 — June 21)

We may use words that we both know the meaning of but we do not always manage to express the correct nuance. There's a problem of this kind taking place at the moment. That's fine as long as you acknowledge it and work on improving your delivery.

Scorpio (Oct. 24 — Nov. 22)

People who know their own mind or who consistently follow a successful routine have a powerful quality to their personality. If you are this way inclined, please take note that a degree of flexibility today is not a sign of weakness, but of genuine wisdom.

Pisces (Feb. 20 — March 20)

Great ideas do not, on their own, make people successful. Nor, for that matter, do outstanding talents. There is a fickle friend called luck who tends to call in unexpectedly. This new lunar month will bring the two of you together for a warm encounter.

Air travellers are being advised to confirm their flights as another snowstorm barrels toward Toronto on the busiest day of the year at Pearson International Airport.

To kick of the March Break, Air Canada is warning travellers that the weather will likely cause delays and cancellations beginning later Friday and continuing through the weekend.

Pearson spokesperson Trish Krale said the coming storm had not caused any problems for flights leaving first thing in the morning. “Weather is not expected to affect our start up," she said.

As of 7 a.m., there were no cancellations or delays reported on the Air Canada and WestJet websites.

However, the Greater Airport Authority is reminding people who plan to fly to check on the status of their flights before leaving for the airport.

The GTAA reports there is typically a 14 per cent increase in air travel today, with about 100,000 people expected to pass through Pearson’s gates.

Air Canada is offering its customers the chance to rebook their flights without penalty, space permitting, by calling 1-888-247-2262.

Environment Canada meteorologist David Phillips is predicting trouble later in the day, not only for those taking to the skies but also for motorists heading south in search of the sun.

“I think travel is going to be a nightmare,” Phillips said. “The timing couldn’t be worse. Those driving south can expect it all: freezing rain, ice pellets, rain and snow.”

He added that people driving east to Quebec should also expect misery on the roads, with winds gusting up to 70 km/h and whiteout conditions that will make the driving hazardous.

In Toronto, Phillips predicts the storm will leave another 25 cm of snow in its wake.

“The first act will be this afternoon,” he said. “Then we’ll have an intermission overnight. Most of the dump, the main act, will be on the Saturday.”

Niagara Region will get somewhere between 30 and 50 cm of snow.

The storm is expected to last 36 to 48 hours.

So far this winter, Toronto has had 178 cm of snow. Phillips believes the city is on track to break the record of 207.4 cm.

“If we get 30 cm we’ll break the record,” he said, “and we still have six weeks to go. It’s not unusual to have snow in April. I would bet money we’ll break the record.”

Last year, Toronto experienced its second lowest snowfall on record, with just 60 cm.

“It really is a world of difference,” Phillips said. “The contrast from this year to last is quite the head shaker, even for myself. And it takes a lot to shock me.”
