HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2009: This year, open up to swift changes, which often come from others’ exaggerated reactions. If single, you could choose the wrong person, or the emotionally unavailable person. You can’t get to know someone well enough before diving into a relationship or deciding this person is it. Scorpio always adds another perspective.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• Pressure builds. You have decisions to make. But make sure you are informed. Not everyone has to agree with you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••••• Defer to others with the knowledge that you must grow and evolve to a new level. Walk away from a power play; don’t indulge in a contest of wills.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••• Stay on top of your work. You often waste time running around nervous, trying to handle everything. Eventually, something slips between the cracks.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••••• Your creativity bubbles forth, and suddenly you are dealing with a brand-new idea for an old situation. If someone is challenging, you might be more reactive than normal.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••• Investigate what is going on with you, as well as with a co-worker. At present, you see this person as difficult.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••••• Keep communication flourishing. Your perspective changes radically given more information and people’s behavior.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) •••• Sometimes your need to disclose a matter or review with someone else could lead you in a new direction. Investigate options rather than shut them down.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••••• While many people can run rings around others, you are not to be toyed with. How you let someone know that enough is enough might be very uncomfortable but extremely necessary.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••• No one can blame you for dragging your heels. You could be overwhelmed. You often have a way of enlightening your life through periods of withdrawal.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• You might want to see a situation in a new light if you are frustrated by the present indications. Ask yourself some questions about the role of this issue in your life.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) •••• All eyes turn to you. Your perspective changes radically when you see what looks like a very defiant individual who could impact your work or daily life.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ••••• Look to others to help you gain a new perspective or overview. Not everything is exactly as it seems or will be. In some manner, you are preventing yourself from seeing the whole situation.
