ARIES (March 21-April 19). With great charisma comes great responsibility. Be careful how you wield that today. You want friends and fans, but you don't want people to expect attention that you're not willing to give.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're highly motivated, but don't make yourself too busy: It will only be counterproductive. You need to be able to assimilate what you're experiencing. Dive in where it's deep enough, within limits - the pool, not the ocean.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you don't stumble on happiness, fear not. You can create it like you're using a recipe: Put in the right ingredients in the right order, and you will be happy.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your manners are impeccable, a situation puts them to the test. Use your quick reflexes to save someone (or yourself) from imminent embarrassment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Getting into love is easy: You just fall. For love to continue, though, effort must be made. Be willing to keep taking risks. Falling happens in uncertain territory.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It has been said that there is no love, only acts of love. This is the perfect moment to show someone you love that you've been listening. Do the exact thing that is most needed or wanted.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll be an equalizing force - a safe place for someone to confide in, a neutral party in the war, the fair hand that deals the spoils. Everyone is counting on your justice ... no pressure!

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Fraternizing with the enemy is obviously a breach in ethics, a disloyal move, a dangerous risk - unless, in doing so, you make the enemy an ally. Maybe the enemy was never really an enemy.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Perfection doesn't win hearts. Sure, people respect the hard work it takes to be masterful. But it's that intangible something that counts much more.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It would be so much easier if life would fall into simple categories, but it never does. You have too many interests for narrow-mindedness. Your principles are strong, but your mind is open.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You were right to put off a task until you felt compelled to take it on. But enough is enough. There's a fine line between inaction and procrastination. Get in there, and get it over with.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The difference between a loan and a gift is that one should be repaid literally, while the other should be repaid in a more creative way. Of the two, the loan will be the easier one to manage.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 30). Once upon a time, you gazed longingly into the distant possibilities. This solar return, you'll connect with them. A vibrant relationship will give you wings. There's a financial investment in November - risky and worth it. You're most decisive and persuasive at the end of the year. Healing happens in June. Libra and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 33, 38, and 12.
