HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Aug. 6, 2009: This year, stay focused on the big picture, which includes partners, interactions and dealings in general. First isolate your desires, and then work within existing constraints. If single, guard against putting someone on a pedestal. If attached, clarify and ask questions if you feel overwhelmed. Your partner probably doesn’t mean to be nebulous. Aquarius has similar issues but a whole different style.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• Your creativity cannot be suppressed. Even if you decide it is nose-to-the-grindstone time, somehow a friend taps you on the shoulder.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••• You might want to move forward and come to terms with a change. The questions just might be how, where and when. If you think through a problem, the end results will be great.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• You have a way or style that is unique; others respond with ease, especially as you seem to be opening one door after another. Who would turn away?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••••• How you deal with another person could make a big difference. Your value of a situation could change radically.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• If you think about a situation long enough, you could realize the pros and cons. Make that process OK, as it will point you in the right direction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••••• You might want a different take on a situation. The more you explore alternatives and the more open you are, the better the end results will be. Manage a situation with directness and understanding.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••••• Allow your creativity to bubble up. Your strong sense of humor and imagination find solutions, if not escapes, for current situations.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) •••• Stay settled and direct in your dealings. Others might be confusing at best. Listen to what is going on with a family member. Confusion surrounds the best of ideas.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• Emphasize your direction and long-term decisions. You can and will make a difference. Listen to feedback from a child or loved one.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••• You will want to be more aware of how much you have to offer. Money easily could run out of your hands if you are not careful. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• You draw others toward you out of the blue. Your way or style of handling personal matters could be quite different. Let your imagination wander.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ••• Your sixth sense works overtime. Your answers don’t always work as you would like. Your instincts kick in and lead you in a new direction. Investigate another option.
