For Wednesday, Aug. 30
Those with birthdays today: You are strong-willed and direct. Though many admire this trait, as well as your verbal abilities, you still might not have the whole perspective. Keep a board of advisers, professionally and personally! Listen to their feedback. You could be fighting a sweet tooth this year. An indulgent streak emerges. If you are single, you'll meet people quickly through your day-to-day travels. Sort through your admirers, potential friends and loved ones. It never hurts to be a touch cautious. If you are attached, as long as you don't become too domineering, you could have a very special year. Take some time away together. SCORPIO could be testy.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
**** Dreams might be key to some long-term goals. What might be triggered is a tendency to be overindulgent. Use your high energy and sense of direction to accomplish what you need. Tonight: Best as a duo.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
**** You can be sure you aren't seeing a boss clearly, or him you. Take a positive interpretation. Creativity stimulates relationships, networking or a key project. Tonight: Sort through your invitations. Choose what pleases you the most.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
**** You are seeing a situation incorrectly, or someone might not have all the facts. In any case, you will find that the best approach is keeping your nose to the grindstone. Tonight: Dig into a project at home.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
***** Your imagination might be a gift, but it can also distort relationships, financial offers and communication in general. You will be prone to taking a risk. Check out the pros and cons carefully. Tonight: Out with a friend or the gang.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
*** You might be happy as a clam but you might not be getting a complete perspective of a situation. Don't be surprised if you are investing in property or family life. Tonight: Hang close to home.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
***** Your actions count. Others might easily distort your message and get something totally different. Don't worry - you will have a chance to clear the air. Tonight: Join a pal or loved one for dinner and talks.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
**** Your intuition will play a strong role in money decisions. Creativity and risking are definite no-nos, no matter how good an offer or deal looks. Scrutinize your finances before investing. Tonight: Your treat.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
***** You are the lead player, even if others don't really get your message. You also might not notice the discrepancy in what you present and what others hear. Tonight: Go where the crowds are. How about a baseball game or a concert?
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
*** Know when to bail out. The truth is, though what you are hearing and thinking might be positive, it isn't accurate. Be resourceful with a public appearance. Tonight: Display some of your high energy.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
***** Taking an overview will help you make strong money decisions. Better yet would be to postpone any major investments for now. Tonight: Where you can relax yet use your mind.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
*** You walk in a pink haze, and you simply might not care. A strong professional presence might be needed. You might not be as in control as you would like to be. Tonight: Count on being a major force. Yes, it could be late.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
***** Your intuition works overtime, but it's not necessarily on target. Others, especially associates and loved ones, might be quite forceful. Let them. They might have a different perspective. Tonight: Opt for new vistas.
