HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Sept. 2, 2012: The way you react could change this year, as surprises become commonplace. What is a given is that you can expect the unexpected. To some people, this could be nerve-wracking, but to others, the variety is a source of excitement. If single, take your time getting to know the apple of your eye; there could be surprises along the way. If attached, you learn that you cannot control anyone’s responses except your own, and sometimes not even those. Work with change, as that dynamic can add much to your relationship. Aries fires you up. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Aries all day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You wake up on the right side of the bed this morning. Unfortunately, everyone around you wakes up on the wrong side.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Read between the lines when speaking to someone. This person isn’t saying what is really going on with him or her. You might not like what you hear.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • You could have a tussle with a partner or close friend. Truth be told, you really won’t be too upset about the outcome.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Take a stand, and observe what is happening behind the scenes. You might want to organize a get-together or handle an important matter.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Something you least expected becomes a possibility. Do not hold yourself back, and be willing to experiment with breaking out of your normal Sunday routine.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might need to be more forthright with a child or fiesty friend. He or she could throw a tantrum, no matter what you do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You might want to lighten up a bit. A friend or loved one appears to be full of energy and vigor. This person also might blurt out words you would prefer not to hear.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Sometimes you have too much energy for your own good, and you need to find a constructive outlet. A sibling or neighbor wants his or her way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Be impulsive and go with the moment. You might surprise yourself by how wild you could get. Do not let money stop you from really enjoying yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • If you don’t need to go far from home, don’t. Your sense of humor comes out when a family member acts up in an unusual manner and encourages you to laugh.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You understand why someone close makes you crankier than you would like. Use that information with kindness and forethought.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Often, you are not as conscious of your behavior and motives as you’d like. You could save yourself a lot of aggravation if you would take some time to better understand your reasoning.
