The sun and Jupiter square off, declaring open season on the financial books. Where is the money going? If you dare to peek at the bank statements for some quick analysis (which is made easier by the sun and Mercury in Virgo), the records will show in tangible terms exactly where your priorities lie.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Don’t get stressed out about the idea of following your intuition by wondering which internal voice is the right one. Intuition often comes in the form of curiosity or interest. Follow that, and you’ll be psychically connected.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Beware of unguarded sharing. You won’t trust those who give too much information, and others won’t trust you if you tell stories that aren’t yours to tell. Loose lips sink ships.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will sense that there is absolutely nothing to be gained by trying to be liked and selfless. You’ll take care of your own needs and pursue what delights you — and people will like you all the more because of it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have been neglecting what you want, afraid of making others uncomfortable. What if you don’t ask for what’s reasonable? What if you ask for more than you think you deserve? You just might get it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Do you have the sense that someone is messing with you? This is nothing personal. It might help you to pretend like this person is playing the kind of elaborate game that makes life worth living.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will be strongly protective of your loved ones and will, in your own calm, controlled way, leap to their defense given the least provocation. Do the same for yourself. Teach the world how to treat you and yours.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even though the demands on you are not loud or harsh, they are still abundant. So be as generous and helpful as you want to be, but also know where to draw the line.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). For all of your resistance to the work, you still get it done. So why resist it at all? It’s too tiring. Submit to the inevitable, and you just might find that you’re actually enjoying it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some days, the hours run like a low-grade fever, irritating in their development; everything makes you mad. Moods like that are signals that it’s time to rest. Ride it out and expect little of yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you are very clear about why you want to do something, your choices become more obvious. Just rule out everything that goes against your “why,” and you’ll be left with the best answers.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your inner drive will be stoked by external events that seem to rally you forward, cheerleader style. The attention you get is a reward in itself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). By reading about and experiencing the company of people who are different from you, you get more clarity about who you are and how you want to be perceived.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 7). You’ll get another chance at a dream that’s not been realized. You’ll be considerably more creative in October. In November, it’s the impractical ventures that lead to exciting and lucrative developments. Family embraces your venture. March and May bring other investors on board. Love signs are Sagittarius and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 23, 15 and 19.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You will receive a compliment to remember for a lifetime. TAURUS: Leave the house and leave it often. All good fortune comes from getting out and interacting with new people. GEMINI: You’ll communicate differently with someone as you start to sense that this person likes you. CANCER: Your charisma is turned up, and you’ll be surprised by who initiates contact. LEO: If you prefer the bliss of ignorance, you shouldn’t ask certain questions. VIRGO: The one who constantly provokes you to think about life in a different way is slowly growing on you. LIBRA: Too many compromises alter your personality irrevocably. Try a weekend without any. SCORPIO: Speak up. Approach. You won’t be interrupting, and if you are, it will be a welcome interruption. SAGITTARIUS: Discuss how you feel. It will tell people more than the facts of your life. CAPRICORN: Someone is making you want to step on the brake, not on the gas. AQUARIUS: Show sincere appreciation for something you notice. Your kind words will set you apart as a true romantic. PISCES: You don’t know what will happen, and you don’t care. You’re ready to take it as it comes.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Gemini and Virgo are both ruled by the same planet: Mercury. They also have similar phrases associated with their sign. Gemini’s phrase is “I Think,” and Virgo’s is “I Analyze.” These similarities lead to an easy rapport between the signs that is supported this weekend by the sun in Virgo and the moon in Gemini. If left to their own devices, they could talk the entire weekend away.
