Toronto Star - - LIFE - JAC­QUE­LINE BI­GAR BORN TO­DAY: Key­boardist Larry Dunn (1953), ac­tress Zoe Sal­dana (1978), ac­tor Jean Du­jardin (1972) jacque­linebi­

IF TO­DAY IS YOUR BIRTH­DAY: This year you open up to new ideas that of­ten lead to sur­pris­ing re­sults. You might be un­usu­ally fo­cused on achiev­ing a cer­tain goal. Be sure to hon­our a key friend­ship. If you are sin­gle, you meet peo­ple with ease, es­pe­cially through the be­gin­ning of fall. You will know when you meet the right per­son for you. If you are at­tached, your sig­nif­i­cant other of­ten seems dis­tant. Af­ter De­cem­ber, you will wit­ness a grad­ual change in your sweetie, and you’ll be de­lighted. TAURUS might be too rigid for your taste.


Keep an eye on dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions be­fore tak­ing any ac­tion. You are likely to see new facts and in­for­ma­tion come out. You might have a lot to think about, es­pe­cially mat­ters in­volv­ing your fi­nances. Your spon­tane­ity tends to jolt oth­ers. Tonight: Revisit your day and your de­ci­sions.


You might feel as if you need to be qui­eter and do more lis­ten­ing. You can al­ways change your mind if you de­cide that the path you are on is not the cor­rect choice. Un­der­stand your ex­pec­ta­tions, and con­sider let­ting oth­ers know about them. Tonight: Zero in on what you want.


You might feel that a pri­vate chat would be bet­ter than hav­ing an open dis­cus­sion. You can ap­peal to oth­ers by ask­ing them to join you. Mu­tual re­cep­tiv­ity be­comes much more pos­si­ble with fo­cus on the in­di­vid­ual. Tonight: Visit with a spe­cial friend with whom you can be open.


Zero in on what is im­por­tant, but don’t ig­nore other sig­nif­i­cant is­sues in the process. You might be sur­prised by ev­ery­thing you dis­cover you have in com­mon with a par­tic­u­lar per­son. Take charge in a sit­u­a­tion, yet you will still need to han­dle a jolt. Tonight: Where the crowds are.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

You might be in charge of a project, yet find­ing com­mon­al­ity will de­mand tal­ent. You can pres­sure some­one into join­ing you, but it would be bet­ter to mo­ti­vate him or her in­stead. The qual­ity of the in­ter­ac­tions and out­come will be much bet­ter. Tonight: Work late, if need be.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)

Keep reach­ing out to oth­ers at a dis­tance. Don’t hes­i­tate to make a call to an ex­pert or get more in­for­ma­tion. You might feel as if you need to be as knowl­edge­able as pos­si­ble. Oth­ers will ad­mire your de­sire to learn more. Tonight: In­dulge in a favourite form of men­tal re­lax­ation.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)

You have a way of mov­ing sit­u­a­tions in new di­rec­tions, but right now oth­ers seem to dom­i­nate. Kick back and see how things play out. You’ll en­joy tak­ing a back seat. In­ter­nal­ize what you are learn­ing about those around you. Tonight: Go along with a friend’s re­quest.


You might be taken aback by ev­ery­thing that is hap­pen­ing around you. Un­der­stand what is mo­ti­vat­ing oth­ers. The un­ex­pected colours a re­la­tion­ship. You tend to be at the mercy of oth­ers, whether you want to ad­mit to it or not. Tonight: Let some­one else call the shots right now.


You have a lot of en­ergy to ex­pend. Your car­ing at­ti­tude needs to emerge, as you of­ten seem to have a dif­fi­cult time ex­press­ing your feel­ings. A child or loved one is likely to sur­prise you with some news. Main­tain a sense of hu­mour. Tonight: A sug­ges­tion will be most ap­peal­ing.


Your pro­tec­tive in­stincts kick in, and you will want to take a stand on a de­vel­op­ing mat­ter. You will find time to do ev­ery­thing you want if you re­lax. You also might want to make an ad­just­ment to your daily life; dis­cuss this change with a loved one first. Tonight: Take a walk.


You’ll clear the air by hav­ing a car­ing con­ver­sa­tion. You might hear some­thing that is likely to shock you. Try not to let oth­ers see your knee-jerk re­ac­tion. Process first, then re­spond. Your open­ness will be more ap­pre­ci­ated than you re­al­ize. Tonight: Make it an early night.


Toy­ing with an idea is one thing, but act­ing on it is another, es­pe­cially if it has any fi­nan­cial im­pli­ca­tions. Ex­plore your op­tions, and test out your ideas on oth­ers. A good idea will with­stand crit­i­cism, but you’ll want to be sure of your­self. Tonight: Just don’t be alone.
