Horoscope for the week of Aug. 31, 2009

Jacqueline Bigar

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 31, 2009:

This year, discerning if you are indeed a workaholic could be difficult. You simply are more focused on getting the job, project or whatever done. Partners, especially those involved with finances, could be full of surprises. If you are single, don’t move too quickly into a budding romance. If you are attached, you need to respect your differences and allow them to empower the bond. CAPRICORN is earthy, stable and sometimes dull.

The Stars Show the Kind of Week You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

**** Others see you as an adviser or their leader. Enjoy the acknowledgment and the sense of respect. You will want to use your instincts with a situation, especially one involving a boss. When all’s said and done, you could opt for a change or a different role. This week: Nap, and then decide.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Recommended Stories For You

**** Stretch and read between the lines. You might not be comfortable with everything that you see now that you have taken off your rose-colored shades. Isn’t that why you wear them anyway? Take a stand when you get all the information you need. This week: Beam in what you want.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

***** Reach out for a pivotal person. Listen to what is being shared about a key matter. You might know more about this topic. The question will remain whether to share this information. This week: Togetherness.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

**** Defer to others and understand what is motivating them. A serious conversation can help more than you think. Clear the air and state what you feel. The unexpected comes in from out of left field. Know that you can deal with this matter directly and with clarity. This week: Ask for offers.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

*** Dive into work, and don’t get distracted with accomplishing more than what you must. You could be slowed down by a strong feeling that something is off. Trust your judgment if you sense a problem, even though the facts might not be there yet. This week: Exercise time.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

**** If you let go of a heaviness, creativity could flow and point to the path that leads to where you want to go. Listen to feedback from others. You might want to head in your own direction, but on some level you feel overwhelmed and tired. This week: Always a live wire.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

*** Your inner voice might contradict what you are seeing. Observe rather than declare. Listen rather than talk. You will get the type of information you need. Listen to news that comes forward, and consider what will work best. Only you can make choices for yourself. This week: The fun times are here.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

***** Keep communication going. You are focused and goal-oriented. You know what you want. Don’t allow yourself to be sidetracked right now. Your words are imprinted in others’ minds. Use care with what you say. Others are listening. This week: Catch up on a friend’s news.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

*** You might not come to an agreement. A feeling of being betrayed or not listened to could hurt. You can and will get around a problem if you so choose. Your responsibilities often weigh you down. This week: Know when to start.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

**** Continue the process of looking beyond the obvious. Listen to news with an eye to everyone’s benefit. Understand what is going on with others, and try to come to an agreement. You might have difficulty seeing someone through his or her own eyes. This week: Just make yourself happy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb, 18)

** Knowing when to back off is important. Nevertheless, a key associate decides to charge in. Just the same, observing could be far more powerful than acting right now. Play your cards close to your chest if you want success. This week: Nap, then decide.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

**** Just because a partner or several people in your life are tight right now doesn’t mean much. All it says is that you might want to try another approach or ignore the grumpy faction in your life. This, too, will pass. A meeting helps you along the path to realizing a goal. This week: Where the action is.

BORN THIS WEEK
