HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 9, 2010: This year, you have the opportunity for a new beginning. You energize many people; they often follow your lead. If single, you might discover how many people are interested. If attached, watch a tendency to become too me-oriented. Remember, it takes two to make a relationship work. Use care with a Capricorn.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • No one in his or her right mind would attempt to push you aside or demand his or her way. You clearly are on top of your game and heading in the right direction.

TAURUS (April 20-May 21) • • • If you can work from home, do. Plug extra energy into whatever you do. A new beginning is possible. Have you been considering a home office?

GEMINI (May 22-June 20) • • • • • You find answers. Extremes come up when juggling your “adult” life with a child and/or loved one. You might decide to handle a matter very differently.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Realize that you might be overburdened by all your responsibilities. You feel pressured and become reactive.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Others might be reactive and, in some manner, reminding you of busy bees running around without a thought. Stop and survey the immediate situation. Don’t say anything hurtful.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • If you don’t feel up to snuff, don’t be surprised. Much is happening quickly. You feel as if you cannot respond to the many requests and, on a personal level, “keeping up with the Joneses.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Zero in on key principles. Your ideas could be all over the place. Don’t act or feel jeopardized. What you decide on is not only workable, it could be a home run!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Schedule a must appointment. Your instincts tell you which way to go with an authority figure. Responsibilities just seem to drop on you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • A meeting determines the lay of the land. You could be touched by someone’s gesture. Don’t let a call to a child or new friend sit on the back burner.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • If you’re feeling uncomfortable with a work-related matter, create some space between you and the issue. A home office might not be as successful as you would like.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Your airy style makes a difference. You seem to be able to absorb what might be dropped on you out of the blue. Sort through messages, and prioritize them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • While others seem to squeeze in time for socializing, it appears you need to buckle down and take a serious look at how you juggle money. You might be spending more than usual.
