For Monday, Aug. 25, 2003:
Those with birthdays today: You have certain goals that you will want to meet. Many of you will choose to spend some quiet time thinking and evaluating. Your creativity emerges at work, though you might be attracted to some offbeat interests as well. Avoid going to extremes. If you are single, you could meet someone at any given moment. If you are attached, your relationship will warm up from taking special time away together. Leo reads you cold.
The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
