HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 31, 2009: This year, discerning if you are indeed a workaholic could be difficult. You simply are more focused on getting the job, project or whatever done. If single, don’t move too quickly into a budding romance. If attached, you need to respect your differences and allow them to empower the bond. Capricorn is earthy, stable and sometimes dull.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• Others see you as an adviser or their leader. Enjoy the acknowledgment and the sense of respect. You will want to use your instincts with a situation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) •••• Stretch and read between the lines. You might not be comfortable with everything that you see now that you have taken off your rose-colored shades.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• Reach out for a pivotal person. Listen to what is being shared about a key matter. You might know more about this topic.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) •••• Defer to others and understand what is motivating them. A serious conversation can help more than you think. Clear the air and state what you feel.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••• Dive into work, and don’t get distracted with accomplishing more than what you must. You could be slowed down by a strong feeling that something is off.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) •••• If you let go of a heaviness, creativity could flow and point to the path that leads to where you want to go. Listen to feedback from others
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••• Your inner voice might contradict what you are seeing. Observe rather than declare. Listen rather than talk. You will get the type of information you need.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••••• Keep communication going. You are focused and goal-oriented. Don’t allow yourself to be sidetracked right now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••• You might not come to an agreement. A feeling of being betrayed could hurt. You can and will get around a problem if you so choose.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• Continue to look beyond the obvious. Listen to news with an eye to everyone’s benefit. Understand what is going on with others, and try to come to an agreement.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb, 18) •• Knowing when to back off is important. Nevertheless, a key associate decides to charge in. Observing could be far more powerful than acting.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) •••• Just because a partner or several people in your life are tight right now doesn’t mean much. All it says is that you might want to try another approach or ignore the grumpy faction in your life.
