HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2017:
This year you will often be exposed to new ideas. You might feel much better with tried-and-true ideas, yet you will feel restricted by them. In a moment of optimism, you probably will opt to take a leap of faith. The end result will be positive. If single, you have a unique appeal. As a result, you are likely to hook up with someone who appreciates your individuality and precision yet ability to take risks. Be careful not to project your issues on others, especially this person. If attached, the two of you often debate issues or situations that involve choice. Let go of the external and reconnect with your basic bond more often. Allow the innate heat between you to build. SAGITTARIUS often is in conflict with your ideas.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You become more entrenched in a problem because of your attitude and unwillingness to change your position. Your creativity emerges later in the day. An unusual resolution appears, whether you take a risk or not. You have the energy and determination to cruise through a hassle. Tonight: Relax to a good movie.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
One-on-one relating could revolve around a difficult topic or financial restriction. Either way, you break precedent and move through a problem. Listen to news more openly and see where you can find a new path. A partner always appears to be more open to you, which might not always be true. Tonight: Relate on a one-onone level.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You have the ability to move past any hassle quickly. Your mind explores options easily and demonstrates an unusual flexibility. A roommate or family member could trip you up inadvertently. Stay on target and be willing to continue moving forward with or without support. Tonight: Others cheer you on.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Deal directly with a child or loved one you care about. Visualize more of what you want and try to explain those desires to the person who could help you make them so. Remain assertive regarding a financial issue. Do not push past established boundaries to achieve your long-term desires. Tonight: Get as much done as possible before calling it a day.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Be direct about a key issue. Your ability to remain disciplined and follow through on a less-than-comfortable decision allows you to come out ahead. You also have the ability to maintain your sunny personality at the same time, making whatever you do look easy. Tonight: Letting off steam.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Energy and possibly conversations surround your personal and domestic lives. You would like to step forward and make a major change, yet you might feel restrained by a personal issue. Trust that you can make a change, but perhaps not just yet. Tonight: Avoid a hassle. Go out and visit with a friend.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Be forthright about an issue rather than close down. Others try to open up a conversation, and you will respond accordingly once you think about what is happening. A friend might feel a lot stronger about a key issue than you do. You cannot feign agreement, and it would be best not to try. Tonight: Where the crowds are.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might want to move in a new direction. Honor a fast change that could involve a child or loved one. Stay on top of a personal matter. You demonstrate the ability to move through a problem. Be aware that not everyone can follow your logic. Tonight: Clear out errands first.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You could be moving with confidence and quickness while handling a problem. Understand what is happening between you and another person. You see a personal issue far differently from a friend or loved one. Discussions might be important here, but confrontation or arguments should be avoided. Tonight: In the limelight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You are able to move past a problem quickly. Understand what is motivating the other party. Stay on top of what is occurring. Your instincts remain right-on when dealing with others in general. Use them well. Listen to news with a grain of salt. Much could change. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Others seek you out at work and in personal settings. A meeting might have a lot of energy and interest. What occurs might be a letdown, but on the other hand, you have had an opportunity to visit with some friends. Think twice about a fast change; you might be better off not acting on it. Tonight: Where the action is.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Be more forthright when dealing with an important business matter. Honor the feelings of a boss or older relative, especially if this person has more experience with the issue at hand. Your energy surges and might be the source of a disagreement, which normally would not occur. Tonight: Off to the gym to work through your stress.
