August 10, 2009


ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re the favorite of the moment. It’s as though the universe has given you extra points, but you have to use them this week or they go away. Call in a favor and you’ll be spoiled rotten. Behave badly and you’ll be instantly forgiven. Act in a way that’s totally off the wall and you will be, inexplicably, understood.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may be at odds with someone, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It doesn’t even have to cause unrest in your world. Do one of three things: 1. Agree to disagree and leave it at that. 2. Sever the relationship and revel in your own ways. 3. Convince the other person to back down because you’re right.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Steer clear of distractions. Whether it’s video games, Internet shopping or a certain flirty someone, you’ll be overly susceptible to enticements that take too long and are too expensive to fit into your original plans. There are times when the detours are sweeter than the main path. This is not one of those times.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Hopefully you don’t mind being emulated because that’s just what happens this week. You have excellent ideas about how best to spend your time. Those who observe you see someone who is having a jolly old time being a productive and generous person, and you’ll gain admirers, as well as followers.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you expect others to bring the fun, you’ll be disappointed. You’re the most exciting one around! The social scene gets absolutely stale unless you take control and issue some personal invitations. Don’t be afraid to blend your creativity with a dash of daring and a cup of controversy. Your fans are depending on you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You won’t be spending much time on the couch, as you’ll be inspired to fill up your days. Research and investigation will be required. You won’t automatically know what is likely to be the best experience. Some of the paths you choose will be less than exciting, but you’ll soon figure out the best choices available.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll make impressive progress with a project, if you do say so yourself. In fact, that is probably what will happen, as the people around you are either too jealous to offer their props, or they are not aware or educated enough to understand the complexity of what you’re doing. Continue on the path of greatness.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even if you know a person very well, you can never know all of them. There will be changes in your environment that trigger a different response from your loved one than you expected. It’s nice to be surprised, and this twist could be just the spice that makes a relationship suddenly more interesting again.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have a full plate this week. Resist the urge to rush around. If you have to let some activities drop, go ahead and don’t feel guilty. The point is not how much you can accomplish in seven days; it’s how well you enjoy yourself. If you can let your personality shine through your every endeavor, you’ve won.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your work has been largely self-motivated, and the result has been deeply fulfilling and also successful. Even in your personal life, you are strong and refuse to lean on others for your happiness. You seldom admit, even to yourself, that you need others. This week, bring the guard down and let yourself be loved.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be among sleepwalkers whose primary aim is to stay comfortable and do the very minimum to get by. Don’t be lulled into that zone. Stay aware. To be wise is to recognize what’s in front of you. If you seize your opportunities, you’ll be given more. If you decline them, you’ll be given fewer.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). With Neptune as your guide, you’re a dreamer. But when you feel the timing is right, you’re also a doer. Others may urge you to move before you’re ready. Go with your own sense of flow instead. You will be intuitively guided, which will probably seem illogical to more reasonable types. Believe in your powers.
