Horoscope for Monday and the week of August 17

Jacqueline Bigar

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 24, 2009:

This year, you frequently give off mixed messages. Another area of attention will be communication. This awareness will encourage more clarity and potential risk-taking. Create the type of security you want. If you are single, someone new will light up your life. Don’t try to define this relationship or restrict it; freedom is intrinsic to the joy it gives. If you are attached, the two of you will be happier if you are in sync with each other’s goals. Honor your sweetie’s, too. SCORPIO challenges your opinions.
