August 17, 2009


ARIES (March 21-April 19). In every area of life, focus is vital. You have the amazing ability to separate your emotions from the task at hand and use only those feelings that will help you show up strong. It’s a tricky accomplishment in a week when your feelings will be intensely passionate. Do your best. It will be more than enough.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll have the opportunity to experience one of the finest things in life — time with your loved ones. The moments may seem commonplace, though, unless you take the initiative to bring something special and memorable to the scene. Savor and celebrate the uniqueness of the bond you have with loved ones.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You gravitate naturally toward hospitable souls and will be happiest in the company of those with attitudes that are as winning as yours. The qualities you find most attractive are: curiosity, humor, enthusiasm and service to others. Show compassion to those who don’t fit the description, but avoid them all the same.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll mingle in a crowd or work among a large number of competitors. In order to shine, you’ll need a big ego and a flair for getting noticed. Pump yourself up. Keep friends around to help you feel important. Once you feel powerful, you’ll be inclined toward modesty and service to others. It’s the perfect combo.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Life will require maintenance. Whether it’s the air conditioner at home or a misunderstanding between loved ones, attention will be needed. But don’t obsess. Every broken thing has its moment for fixing. When you can do something about it, you will. In the meantime, note what is working and enjoy it to the hilt.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You behave with great dignity this week. You might be accused of being underwhelmed by life, but it’s not true. You just have a subtle way of communicating and prefer to enjoy life quietly. You are not given to ostentation, and you value people who don’t need extra attention and can deal in a secure and “real” manner.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Take no one for granted. Those who devote their attention, time and resources to you need to know that they are appreciated. Later in the week, new friendships are eye opening. You’ll be welcomed into someone’s personal space and will learn and appreciate the world differently from this vantage point.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Much of the week is spent in preparation for something big that’s about to happen. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not as important as what is to come. Approach each task as though it were the main event. The glory is really in the details, in how well you enjoy the rehearsal and what you learn along the way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your life force is going strong this week and can be felt by all around you. You approach your responsibilities with conviction, and for the most part things will move to accommodate your wishes. Wednesday brings a minor glitch, though. Put on a happy face if people don’t come through with what was promised.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A goal still gleams in the distance. You wonder why it’s taking so long. And though you may not be moving as quickly as you had hoped, you’ll make remarkable progress this week. Continue to fill your mind with thoughts of what your life will be like — and what you’ll be like — once you get what you’re going for.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Being around tolerant people brings you up. You feel more creative when you know that you’re accepted, and also when you’re not wasting energy worrying whether others will be. Those who complain often and try to exclude others by imposing snobby rules will only limit your enjoyment and range of life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Whatever you think you are capable of, raise your estimation by 10 percent. You can now do more and be more. Those who think big will inspire you. When you mentally minimize your obstacles, they really will diminish. By the end of the week, you will be bold. You’ll cancel out the negative with positive energy.

THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: This year you get an education — the kind that couldn’t possibly be taught in a school. You become wise. By this time next month, you’ll have decided upon a new thing to want and go for. October brings fantastic new friends into your life. You’ll apply yourself seriously in November. January brings the opportunity to invest in your dreams, and you’ll be paid handsomely in April. You’ll have a wonderfully restful spring, and fun-loving souls are attracted to your easygoing attitude.
