For Friday, Aug. 11
Those with birthdays today: You definitely want to work with others on an individual level. Sometimes people can be quite hard on you and make demands. Prioritize friends and loved ones (but don't let them know!). You will be able to make clearer decisions as a result. Through clearly identifying what is important, you will feel more in control. Some of you might go through an identity crisis, while others could have problems with work and daily life. Is a change in order? If you are single, a special person will be entering your life in 2007. If you are attached, you need to give your sweetie the benefit of the doubt. Spend plenty of time together. PISCES adores you.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
Aries (March 21-April 19)
*** Take time to understand where others are coming from. Being active doesn't allow you much time for contemplation. Try being a scholar or a philosopher for a day. Tonight: Vanish quickly. Take some private time.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
***** Aim for much more of what you want. A positive attitude will take you far. Someone you work with closely could be difficult or touchy. Know when to pull back and say enough. Tonight: Where the party starts.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
**** You are pushed into a position of responsibility, whether you want to be there or not. Your intellectual patterns help define situations. Others want you to help them interpret recent events. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
***** Take an overview and refuse to get pulled into a moot issue. Get done what is necessary so you can escape work and enjoy the next few days. Try a new adventure. Tonight: Break patterns.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
***** Work with someone directly. As a team, you will accomplish a lot more and build creativity. You come up with answers and ideas. Know that anything is possible. Tonight: Be a duo.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
**** Others want to know more of what is going on with you. However, they have a strange way of asking, which could put you on the defensive. Realize you really don't need to answer to this person. Tonight: Go along with someone else's plans.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
***** You might not realize how important your presence is in other people's lives. If you veer in a different direction, you are likely to hear about it. Choose your words carefully. Actions speak. Tonight: Ever playful.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
***** Your creativity peaks in an unprecedented manner. Don't try to harness your imagination. Think positively about a loved one. You don't have to buy this person's affection. Tonight: Ever playful.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
*** Pressure builds. The problem might involve property, family and/or a domestic issue. You also could be giving mixed messages. Realize your role in a problem. You will be happier. Tonight: Head home.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
**** What you say carries a punch. Though you get results, your inner voice might do some questioning. You act as if you are 100 percent sure. Taking a personal inventory could make a big difference. Tonight: TGIF.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
*** You easily could decide to act as if there is no tomorrow. Living your life to the fullest is good, but not at the cost of having to deal with the ramifications later. Tonight: Treating again?
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
***** You are personality plus. Don't hesitate to zero in on what you want. You might want to displace someone in authority who appears to be a hassle. Pressure builds to a new level. You can handle it. Tonight: As you like.
