HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 23, 2009: This year, you will become more fiscally conscious, provided you control a need to take risks. If single, a relationship could open up your life. What you think you want might not be what you want later – be careful with commitments. If attached, the two of you connect on a deep level. Re-create a first date or another romantic event in your history. Libra can cost you a lot of money! Learn to say “no.”
ARIES (March 21-April 19) ••••• Others express an unusual intensity. Whether with an older friend or relative or just tackling work, you become convinced that a change in your style is a must.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••• Opt to complete a project or visit with a child. Detach from the situation and see what a recent decision brought on. You are encouraged to continue a grounded adjustment between you and others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• Your imagination seems limitless (at least to you). How you deal with someone could change radically if you open up to a partner’s suggestion.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••• A roommate or partner needs extra attention. Discussions prove to be animated, but help ground both of you. A sudden decision could pay off.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) •••• Make calls to loved ones you don’t speak with often. They appreciate your actions. A loved one comes in closer than he or she has in a while.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) •••• Weigh the pros and cons of a purchase. You might want to take another look at the necessity or the true use of this item. Exercise before an early dinner.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••••• Your smiling personality disarms a family member who as of late has been very difficult. Make time for a child or loved one; share a favorite mutual pastime or hobby.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••• You don’t need to share or say anything. If you want to play the recluse, just hide behind the Sunday paper. You could rethink a situation because of a friend’s input.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• Get together with friends and loved ones. The more people, the happier you will be. Opportunities come out of conversations.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) •••• What you have been dealing with could change anyone. Others note a transformation going on. Some might pull back and observe.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• Keep pulling away from situations that don’t work for you. Opportunities open up when you get what doesn’t work out of your life.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) •••• Relate to a favorite person on an individual level. You might not want to discuss a situation or get down to the nitty-gritty
