In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Tuesday, September 1, 2009
-Margaret Santangelo and Kitty Raymond
Virgo: Go about your own business today without getting too involved in other people’s business. Otherwise, you’ll just get bogged down – and held back – by listening to sob stories at work and hand-holding at home. If you find yourself faced with someone needy who’s demanding too much of your time, simply smile, turn
on the charm, and then find a way to distract Needy Nellie while you
Libra: You’re in an easy-breezy mood today, Libra. Somehow, you effortlessly find the fun in whatever you’re doing, even if it’s as low-key as online Scrabble or a long-distance catch-up call to your high-school BFF. Around midday resist the temptation to compare your looks to those of a gorgeous friend – that way lies madness. But do pick her brain for beauty tips that work for your personal look.
Scorpio: As an intense Scorpio, you may not be a stranger to being told to lighten up. But today, you’re the one encouraging everyone in your household to let their hair down. A silly game like Cranium could bring together several people who’ve been tearing around at breakneck speed on a hectic schedule. Make time for real conversation with family members or friends you haven’t
seen in a while.
Sagittarius: You’re known for your ability to wax philosophical – without coming off sounding like a zonked-out hippie who just woke up from the original Woodstock. Today, you’re even more astute than usual, and can argue your point masterfully, whether it has to do with universal health care or why Britney and Justin are destined to get back together someday. This evening, use this power to deftly sidestep a picky boss’ criticism of your work.
Capricorn: Laying out a financial strategy is half the battle. Of course, actually carrying it out is the second half, but today it’s enough for you to focus on the planning. Stop worrying about keeping up with the Joneses, much less the Kardashians, and strive to work out a budget that fits your unique situation and your priorities. You might realize a good book gives you more pleasure than material luxuries.
Aquarius: Today is a high-powered day for Water-Bearer women; morning finds you on a mental roll, with ideas spouting forth like water from a burst pipe. Midday brings a romantic moment with your sweetheart; the connection between you two is electric. You may even be able to sneak away from the day’s drudgework for a racy rendezvous. Just be sure to cover your tracks!
Pisces: Perhaps inspired by a dream (a frequent occurrence for pseudo-psychic Pisceans), you make the most of your morning by coming up with all manner of brainstorms. Around lunchtime, treat yourself to a little bit of pure pleasure, whether it’s buying yourself flowers (why not?) or ordering extra cheese on your sandwich. It doesn’t take much to get out of a rut and liven up your day.
Aries: Getting along with a male family member is difficult this morning; you don’t see eye to eye with his girlfriend, and that causes tension. But using your own significant other as an intermediary works wonders; by afternoon, you’re all enjoying one another’s company, even bonding. Your relative eventually understands that even though you may overreact sometimes, you only worry
about him because you care.
Taurus: You want to do the absolute best you can, and that’s an admirable quality. But today, you have a tendency to be a little too hard on yourself, and that could actually backfire by causing your imagination to be stifled. Try to let go and be in the moment. Allow your creativity to flow – it’s better to edit later than to censor yourself when you’re revved up.
Gemini: For you, being attracted to someone is as much about a meeting of the minds as it is about physical attraction. And today, you may very well forge a mental connection that leads to romantic sparks – whether with a new flame or the person who’s already your partner in love and in verbal sparring. A conversation could get extremely heated, but not in a hostile way.
Cancer: Today offers you a good opportunity to step back and do some sorting-out of recent changes in your life, whether they’re as mundane as having joined a new Facebook group or as intense as having a new romance blossoming. As an emotional Cancer, you’re often ruled by your feelings, but right now you have the ability to dissociate yourself and see things impartially(relatively speaking).
Leo: “If you’ve got it, flaunt it” is one of your mottos – and all the qualities you possess that make heads turn are definitely highlighted today. If you’re single, you may catch the eye of someone you’ve had your sights on for a while, around midday in particular. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is likely to see you with fresh eyes and appreciate your fabulosity anew.
