In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Thursday, August 27, 2009
Leo: If you are a well-prepared, organized individual with definite goals, you are in the best position to take advantage of opportunities that come along during this period. Nor should you hesitate to go out and deliberately create opportunities to demonstrate your experience and maturity. If you are not such a highly structured, goal-oriented individual, the people and situations you encounter under this influence can offer you the inspiration you need to become better organized, and help you to lay a more solid foundation for the type of success you wish to achieve.
Virgo: Today you’re really ready to tackle psychological issues that have been weighing heavily on your subconscious. This afternoon you really need time alone for contemplation, especially if you experience a conflict between your professional responsibilities and your romantic inclinations. You realize that some compromises have to be made in order to maintain balance in your personal life. Tonight you may be easy to anger and be a bit on the irritable side. Your deepest emotions for a partner may manifest themselves tonight.
Libra: Your appearance is the focus of your attention today. Something or someone is likely to inspire you with a need for personal identification with beauty, which could cause you to feel slightly insecure about your own looks. However, this influence might extend beyond the physical and social aspects of your own attractiveness. You want to surround yourself with it. Attending a concert, art or fashion show may be on the agenda. A partner and other allies are apt to be very supportive in helping you attain personal goals and improve your self-image.
Scorpio: Shared resources are your focus today. You may be overly analytical or obsessive about money and finances. Don’t jump to conclusions about a partner’s expenditures or mismanagement of jointly held funds. Wait to hear his or her side of the story before you flip your lid. This evening, get together with friends and get your mind off practical matters. You’ll feel much more relaxed later tonight once you let yourself unwind and relax.
Sagittarius: If you desire inspirational beauty and pleasure, you are likely to find them today. However, if you look for beauty and pleasure that is out in the open for all to see, forget it. Illusive, mysterious and spiritual are descriptions of the people and situations you are likely to encounter during this strange yet intriguing day. Photographs taken of you at this time are apt to be flattering, as well as pictures taken of your social events or of you with your friends.
Capricorn: Your natural competitive spirit is aroused this morning – as long as you don’t become overly aggressive, or allow others to assume that manner in dealing with you, the potential for excitement and stimulation of a physical nature can lead to some great adventures. You can use the added energy for many things, not the least of which is to burn off calories, accomplish the tasks at hand, and enjoy the stimulation of challenging interactions with the opposite sex. Don’t overreact physically to insult and allow the pursuit of pleasure or revenge to rob you of what might have been just the right prod you needed to get moving.
Aquarius: This is the time to look for opportunities to improve your basic skills, gather information, purchase or learn to operate computers, or engage in sales of any kind. Looking for a car? Need a job? Explore the possibilities. Situations that can lead to employment, travel, and education are at hand. They may not appear automatically. Do not wait for them to come to you. Go out and seek opportunity and the rest of the pieces will fall into place.
Pisces: Take advantage of the few hours of productivity this morning by arising early and getting a head start on personal tasks and responsibilities, especially those of a financial nature. You need to create a better system for dealing with the practical side of life, like paying your bills and balancing your checkbook. This afternoon you may consider hiring a bookkeeper to help you keep better track of your money. It’s a great idea; now all you have to do is find someone that you can trust. A family member could be the best candidate.
Aries: This can be an ego-boosting day in which you feel more confident that your efforts will be successful. In turn, this is the kind of attitude that attracts the people and success you are looking for. Self-promotion works very well, as does using the efforts of others to your own advantage. Other potentials imply that your physical efforts — whatever they may be– may bring you recognition or a position of leadership, and that you may be more generous in helping others.
Taurus: Today is an excellent, perhaps even fortuitous, day to expand your appreciation and knowledge of art, music, religion, and philosophy. You may also experience an enhanced ability to take the beauty and knowledge you gain at this time and use it to inspire others as well as yourself. The good life is likely to be extremely appealing to you, especially this evening. There is, however, danger of overindulgence, overstatement, and exaggeration to the point where beauty and refinement are turned into gaudiness.
Gemini: If you are alone, this is a day when you wish others were around. If you are in the company of others, you are more apt to appreciate their companionship, care, and affection. Under this influence everything seems to be on a mutual basis. You admire someone, they admire you, you like red, they like red. Whatever you give others these days is what you would like to receive, and others you encounter will tend to treat you in similar fashion.
Cancer: Observing others during this morning, especially in social settings, you will get a clear idea of what is meant by body language. The subtleties of human interactions are readily apparent, and you can use them to your own advantage. Under this influence others will be attracted to you if you exhibit a certain attitude of self-containment, not aloofness or snobbishness mind you, but an aura of self-possession and control.
