HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Sept. 17, 2009: Claim your power this year. As you do this, some people could become more reactive. Claiming one’s power differs from holding on to your rigid position. Others will appreciate a mental openness. If you are single, you meet people easily, as you have strong energy and magnetism.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): ••••Accomplishment needs to be your middle name as you deal with different pressures and realities. Your high energy, drive and commitment come out, time after time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): ••••• Your creativity allows greater give-and-take. You could use a jolt to grow past an issue. How you handle this hurdle among others defines you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): ••••Pressure builds. You can either live in this tension-laden whirlpool or you can back off and detach. Don’t step into a problem or create a hassle.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): •••••Communication sizzles, and you gain more insight. An unanticipated change of plans could have you regrouping and considering your options.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): ••••You have the power and energy to create a different type of financial or business partnership. You might be a little too focused on what is yours, and not on the common good.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): •••••You experience your dynamic strength. Even if the unexpected makes ripples in your morning, your strength, endurance and focus prevent you from dropping the ball.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): •••You need to get behind an issue. You could be stunned by recent events. Pressure builds to a new level from family, a personal investment and an obsessive tendency of a family member (perhaps even you).
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): ••••Emphasize the positives, not the negatives, of a perpetually changing and sometimes shocking situation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): •••• Listen to a higher-up and understand where he or she is coming from. Upheaval surrounds your home base and what you deem as secure. It could be stunning to find out otherwise.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): ••••• You are changing, and others might be feeling insecure. If someone challenges you, be understanding. How you react could determine the future of this tie.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): •••••One-on-one relating could take you through some surprising moments. As a reaction, you might want to run for the hills.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): •••• You are unusually perky and full of life. Your way of looking at a problem could change radically as a result of someone’s strong attitude.
