Happy birthday for Tuesday, Aug. 29, 2017:
This year you open up to new, avant garde ideas. Generally you walk away from this type of risk, preferring to be more conventional. You feel safer. You discover the positives about taking risks. This attitude might impact various areas of your life. If single, you will want someone you can share more with. This person might not be ready to settle down when you first meet him or her. Have patience. If attached, the two of you might be open to a different lifestyle. You might want to move or travel more. Others will buy homes, possibly a second home. What you do could cause some tension and force you to look at your personal issues as a couple. You will find a midpoint where you can meet. SAGITTARIUS helps you move past your self-imposed restrictions.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Convert some of your stress and tension into energy. You might not be able to complete an ongoing plan at this point, but you can move forward and have it ready for the finishing touches. Someone whispers some news in your ear, but you wonder whether it is news or gossip. Nevertheless, you find a new perspective inevitable. Tonight: Think long-term.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
One-on-one relating opens doors that previously were sealed shut. Dealing with some of what comes forward could produce stress. What is important is not to make a judgment just yet. A friend might not be as loyal as you would like. Tonight: Share with a loved one.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Follow through on what needs to happen. A partner becomes unusually sensitive, yet what bothers this person doesn’t make sense to you. Just accept the way he or she feels. Caring flows through acceptance. Others seem to need to touch base with you, if nothing else. Tonight: Let it all happen.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You might want to clear off your desk and get as much done as possible. Network and enjoy associates, but don’t take anything said as a given. Ideas flow, and you enjoy brainstorming with others. Tonight: Pace yourself and make time for some fun with a dear friend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Your imagination stretches far and could impact you at the oddest moments. You also have a sense of humor that seems to kick in whenever you need it to, and in the oddest situations. Others envy your ability to gain a perspective no matter your mood. Tonight: Encourage a friend to be more open.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
A family member or roommate could be involved with a charged area of your domestic life, which presents a problem. Tension builds. Close loved ones might act as if they are on a different planet -their thoughts are far away from your concerns. Listen to a loved one, and try not to make a judgment. Tonight: Go along with a suggestion.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Keep asking. You might feel as if certain matters need completion, yet there is an issue surrounding just that. Pull back when there is an obstacle, and find areas where you can move freely around that issue. Pick and choose your battles. A neighbor who often has a lot to share might seek you out. Listen to his or her sharing. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Finances are the issue at hand; however, you manage to handle the issue. You have an ability to mend problems through discussions or by developing a different attitude toward handling funds. You are more flexible than many people realize. Tonight: Take a midweek break.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Use your personality and charm to resolve a domestic problem. Usually you receive a strong response when you mobilize the assets of your personality. What is important is that you relax and move through hassles. A boss or associate could be unusually difficult. Do not fuss over details, and work through a problem with this person. Tonight: Only as you like.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Allow more time for you. Sometimes your schedule is so intense that you don’t have enough time for your personal thoughts. Your ability to grasp various sides of a problem allows you to flourish at work as well as in your personal life. Tonight: Schedule some time to exercise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your ability to deal with a money issue comes through. You might not agree with the majority of people in a meeting. In fact, despite this meeting, you could decide to head in your pre-chosen direction. Question your actions and accept someone’s challenge to your choices. Have a complete discussion before committing to a path. Tonight: Going overboard.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
A vague sense of confusion surrounds you. You hear what could be important news. Do verify the facts first. You might want to hold off on acting on any matter for several days. You might not need to follow through on all of your ideas. In fact, all you need is one. Take some needed space, and use it for sorting through confusion. Tonight: To the wee hours.
