The Record (Troy, NY) - - FRONT PAGE - Jac­que­line Bi­gar

Happy birth­day: for Thurs­day, Aug. 30. This year you walk away from con­trol­ling in­di­vid­u­als. The de­ci­sion to take this ac­tion might not hap­pen to­mor­row, but it will hap­pen. Once you make up your mind to im­ple­ment a de­ci­sion, you can be dif­fi­cult to stop. If you are sin­gle, ro­mance might not be a high pri­or­ity un­til you meet some­one of in­ter­est in late spring. If you are at­tached, you and your part­ner see is­sues in the same light more and more. You en­joy this in­ter­ac­tion. ARIES pushes hard to in­tro­duce you to new peo­ple.

Aries (March 21-April 19): ★★★★ Com­mu­ni­ca­tion flour­ishes. Oddly enough, oth­ers could de­cide to make them­selves vul­ner­a­ble and speak about their dreams and/or fears. You might gain a great deal of un­der­stand­ing and em­pa­thy as a re­sult of their open­ness. Tonight: Be spon­ta­neous.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): ★★★ Some of you might give thought to call­ing out from work to­day. Whether you have been push­ing too hard or have a sit­u­a­tion that is de­plet­ing you, you prob­a­bly need some time off. You will see the dif­fer­ence in how you feel to­mor­row. Tonight: Share some news with a fa­vorite per­son.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): ★★★★ You smile, and oth­ers re­spond. You have rea­son to feel good about your friend­ships. A sense of un­der­stand­ing em­anates from one per­son to the next. You might be ap­proach­ing re­spon­si­bil­i­ties with an easier and lighter tone than usual. Tonight: Nap, then de­cide.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22): ★★★ Your car­ing per­son­al­ity emerges -- ex­cept when you feel de­fen­sive. You might find your­self in a ma­nip­u­la­tive power play with some­one you usu­ally count on. You can shrug off the in­ci­dent, though that is not the de­sired re­sponse. Tonight: Visit with an older rel­a­tive.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): ★★★★ To­day seems to be a good day for you, but un­der­stand that it could be of­fen­sive to less up­beat signs. Share news with a loved one, and lis­ten to what he or she has to say. You will see that what ails one per­son might not bother an­other. Tonight: Start the week­end early.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): ★★★★ A dis­cus­sion might be on­go­ing; how­ever, you need to see it to the end. Clos­ing off the topic might take more skill than you had an­tic­i­pated. Give the other party some time be­fore you visit again. Let­ting go will be a lot easier that way. Tonight: Make a long-dis­tance call first.

Libra (Sept. 23- Oct. 22): ★★★★ Your light­ness and easy­go­ing na­ture draw a loved one in even closer. If you want to have a more in­ti­mate re­la­tion­ship, use this mo­ment for a se­ri­ous talk. Note that you have a ten­dency to overindulge, and be care­ful when out and about. Tonight: Spend qual­ity time with a friend.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): ★★★★ You have a strong and ef­fec­tive way of clear­ing out some re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. When you have a con­ver­sa­tion with a loved one, you might feel as though you want to stop it short. Use your self-dis­ci­pline to get through a prob­lem. Tonight: Speak your mind, and oth­ers will lis­ten.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): ★★★★ Your cre­ativ­ity emerges, al­low­ing you to han­dle a child or loved one in a more dy­namic way. The con­ver­sa­tion might feel as though you are be­ing ma­nip­u­lated. Refuse to al­low this to hap­pen by dis­tanc­ing your­self. You will be bet­ter off as a re­sult. Tonight: Off to the gym.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): ★★★★ Your play­ful­ness rarely emerges in the work­place; how­ever, to­day you can­not help your­self. Whether a hu­mor­ous sit­u­a­tion un­folds or you sim­ply feel less bur­dened by re­cent re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, oth­ers en­joy this light­ness. Tonight: Kick up your heels and re­lax.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): ★★★★★ Do not stop your­self from reach­ing out to oth­ers. Some­one might need you to make the first move. If you de­cide to make an ef­fort to mend fences, you will dis­cover that every­thing works out well. Don’t take what every­one shares as fact. Tonight: Make it an early night.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): ★★★★ Oth­ers seek you out. Although you might have a lot on your plate, you will man­age to fit in every­one who needs your help. Stay open-minded. Do your best to avoid a can­tan­ker­ous friend who seems to put you in an ei­ther-or sit­u­a­tion. Tonight: Sur­rounded by friends.
