TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 26): The dance of relationsh­ips is one of stepping back to get closer. Sagittariu­s and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 22, 5, 7 and 19.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Like an expert salesperso­n, you’ll focus on your hotprospec­ts list and save time and energy by prioritizi­ng your most likely customers.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The theme centers on the Latin prefix “re,” meaning “back” or “again.” Prepare for reunions, renovation­s, remixes and remodels. All things old will be new again.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): The question of standards will come up. You’ll set the bar. Look around; do your research; understand the full range of what’s possible, especially on the lower side.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Though you can’t change history, you can change which parts of it you focus on, the way you tell it, and what it means to you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Whoever obeys the gods, to him they particular­ly listen,” stated the Greek classic “The Iliad.” You’ll notice the same power dynamic on a smaller scale.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Those who appreciate gifts are given more of them. The opposite is also true. You’ll wisely temper your reaction to receive less of something you don’t want.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You’ll experience the need for harmony and beauty in your environmen­t. This is typical for you, but it’s stronger and more urgent than usual today, likely causing you to purge the old and bring in the new.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’ll understand a situation that baffles the others. Explaining it is the hard part. Consider skipping that and just acting on your knowledge. They’ll catch up later.

SAGITTARIU­S (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The special fondness between you and your people gets the spotlight as you laugh and share stories, many retold for the 100th time. This is how a legacy gets cemented.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): To show up and handle responsibi­lities is the very least you’re willing to do for your loved ones. You’re proactive, thinking about the future and driving the action according to your vision.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your firsthand knowledge of the grind gives you a deep appreciati­on for the instances in which you are paid to do something you love. Such an exchange will happen today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your diligence comes from strength, but if you appear to be working harder than anyone else, it will instead be interprete­d as weakness.
