HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Sept. 8, 2011: This year, you often go back and forth when making decisions. Whether to follow your heart or your mind could become an issue. If single, you could go through a string of lovers and date a lot. If attached, the two of you have the same core issues, which is the glue in the bond. Count on Aquarius to pitch in and help. A baby born today has a Sun in Virgo. The Moon is in Capricorn until 2:42 a.m. Pacific time; the remainder of the day, the Moon is in Aquarius.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • You wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to take the world by storm. You could feel out of kilter unexpectedly with news from a loved one.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Just when you thought a personal matter was resolved, you discover otherwise. A misunderstanding needs to be ironed out.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Keep reaching out for others at a distance. If you need to find an expert, do. You really cannot go wrong. A misunderstanding is a definite possibility. Confirm and clarify.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Relate directly to key individuals. If you feel as if you have gone far enough working though a problem, communicate that issue.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Others clearly have different concepts. You will be able to juggle the back-and-forth. Verify a statement or meeting time, as an element of confusion exists.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Handle a matter in a more conciliatory manner. Someone in your life means well and can inspire you, but at the same time can make goulash out of the most precise situations.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • You might want to make that extra effort as you deal with others. Communication has a strange quality to it. Confirm meetings. Ask about any situation you find vague.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Deal with a financial situation, especially if you are having difficulty being on the same page as someone else. You have much more going for you than you realize.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • You are at your monthly peak. Approach a situation with greater openness. Try to clarify, but don’t be vested in being on the same page as someone else.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Keep your cards close to your chest. Understand what is going on with another person. You might not have the clarity you want at this juncture.
