In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Wednesday, September 2, 2009
-Margaret Santangelo and Kitty Raymond
Virgo: Inventive solutions to mundane problems are required of you today, at work and otherwise. Thinking outside the box ensures you’ll get the job done – and it keeps things interesting, to boot. Tonight, you take a sort of trip through the looking glass: You have an odd opportunity to perceive yourself as others perceive you. Once you adjust to this new perspective, you’re pretty pleased with what you see.
Libra: Your mind is going a mile a minute today, Libra. It’s a great time to mix business with pleasure by meeting up with friends and acquaintances in your field for fun and networking. An impromptu “power lunch” could land you some potentially lucrative leads on a new job, client, or account. Tonight, guard against self-doubt. You’re more than qualified to take on this new opportunity, so don’t hesitate to seize it.
Scorpio: A family member is making some eccentric choices that shake things up on the home front – in a good way. You’ll be thrilled to see what your loved one is capable of, and how he or she is growing. This evening, although you may plan on playing a mentor role, you might find yourself on the receiving end of some wisdom instead. Try to be open and receptive, not skeptical.
Sagittarius: Your natural zeal for life and desire to experience it to the fullest are magnified today – when a good idea strikes, you’re as excited as a 12-year-old girl backstage at a Jonas Brothers concert. Not only do you have a wildly positive attitude, your enthusiasm is infectious – so spread the good news, even if you have to do so via a mass e-mail blast. A communication doesn’t have to take place in person to be enlightening.
Capricorn: Expect to be given a gift of great value today – though it’s not something on the order of a Hermès Birkin bag. (Sorry!). What you’ll receive is something more intangible, an insight that gives you a window of opportunity to shift your priorities. This evening, you’re able to impart this lesson to someone else, practically before you’ve even absorbed it yourself. Later tonight, you make some necessary adjustments to fit the facts.
Aquarius: Your exuberance knows no bounds today. It’s as if you possess the energy and the inspiration to solve all the world’s problems by yourself (or at least, with a little help from your friends). This evening, however, someone could burst your bubble, inadvertently or not. You’re understandably excited about your idea, but if someone doesn’t share your enthusiasm, don’t let it get under your skin. Take the critique and learn from it.
Pisces: Being attuned to what your subconscious tells you makes you a visionary today. You could come up with the concept for the greatest invention since the iPhone. Have the confidence to trumpet your idea to the world, and have faith in the fact that people will be receptive. You’re more in synch with the times than you realize, and you’re fully capable of setting trends that others will eagerly follow.
Aries: The social scene pretty much revolves around you today. You’re in Pied Piper mode, enticing everyone around you to dance to your tune. Use this ability to inspire to get people galvanized around a social cause or a community group – organize a “meetup” online or host a backyard gathering for a grass-roots initiative. Aries are natural-born leaders, and once you get the ball rolling, others will pick it up and run with it.
Taurus: You’ve made significant progress toward a goal, but you’ve reached a point where you need to reach out for help. Involving other people in the process isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of wisdom. And it certainly doesn’t mean that you have to take direction from them. You might accept advice, but it’s still very much your vision that the entire group is working to realize.
Gemini: Broadening your horizons comes as naturally to you as breathing now, even if you’re not really departing from your usual routine. You soak up new information like a sponge, and almost immediately find ways to make use of it. If you’ve dreamed of writing the Great American Novel-or maybe just starting a blog-today would be a perfect time to put pen to paper … or fingers to keyboard, as the case may be.
Cancer: It’s looking like a transition will prove difficult to deal with today. But just in the nick of time, a friend comes through for you with a way to help bridge the gap. Be sure you express your gratitude, though, or she may decide this evening to withdraw her support. Groveling could win her back, but do you really want to spend the time and energy?
Leo: Your luck in love is better today than pretty much any other day this month. You could have an opportunity to meet someone new-possibly even online, as weird as it might feel to make a connection that way. If you’re in a committed relationship, now is a perfect time to be reminded that you’re lucky to have each other. It’s the quirky traits that make him unique that you treasure most.
