HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Aug. 27, 2009: This year, focus is on your home life and chosen direction. Be honest with yourself if you’re not comfortable with everything that might be going on. In relationships, you might have a tendency to say one thing yet do another. This behavior could be confusing to your sweetie. If single, you long for company, but might move too quickly to the live-in phase. Be smart. Sagittarius can be an anchor, a very heavy one.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) ••••• Find solutions and create innovative ideas to achieve your desired results. At this moment, nearly anything is possible.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••••• Deal on an independent level; you’ll feel more in control. More information comes forward by remaining on a one-on-one level. Someone might prevent you from establishing a goal.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• Deferring might not only be smart, it might be the easiest approach. Though you might not sense any animosity or barriers, letting others have their way is powerful.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••• An easy approach gets you much more of what you want. Laughter plays a big role in events and what goes on. Listen to news that surrounds a project.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• Your imagination steps forward and takes the lead. A boss or parent could take a stand and rain on your parade. Obviously, you have far too many ideas for this person to integrate.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••• Basic security needs to take over. If you can work from home, do. Your downtime will be slightly more relaxing. Your ideas are well-received in your immediate environment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••••• Try another approach with a key associate. You might be making more of a slight. Quite possibly, the person involved didn’t even intend it as you are taking it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••• Know when to head in another direction. Though you have a lot to offer, don’t overestimate your value.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• Claim your power and handle exactly what you want. Others might make judgments or try to get you to veer in another direction. It is your choice.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••• Assume a low profile. Much is being said. Meanwhile, your mind is active, producing many thoughts. Sit back and note what comes forward.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• Emphasize the positives in your life. Your friends mean more to you than most signs. A meeting could become a lot more because of certain people there.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ••• A must appearance is important. Realize what you need and where you are going. You must take the first step, as others might be frightened and not as sure of their direction.
