Horoscopes: Aug. 21, 2014

From page A9 | August 21, 2014 |

The solar winds will soon shift, and these are the last days of the sun’s passage through playful Leo. There’s something sweet, childlike and wondrous about this time of life. No matter how experienced you may be, you’ll feel as though you are learning, innocent and impressed with all that goes on in this circus of a world.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you can focus yourself on what is truly important today, count yourself among the minority and also the highly intelligent. There are not many people who would be able to pull this off.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Elevating the family name often comes with the caveat of secret-keeping. It is one thing to disagree with your family, and quite another to make that disagreement public. The pedigreed choose not to.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your world is somewhat of a political balancing act now. Should you sidle up to a power figure? You know the answer better than any. Libra will be your fortuitous connection.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll get serious about work. If you wanted to, you could look busy like the best of the fakers. But it’s not really about creating a flurry of activity; it’s about bottom-line results.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Minor issues will cause a lot of ruckus, but this is not new – that’s why Shakespeare wrote “Much Ado About Nothing.” Your way of glossing over the small things will serve you well.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll handle your feelings well. Resistance is futile anyhow. Instead, you’ll feel fully and process the emotion until it becomes a non-emotional event and no longer has a charge.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s good to be popular, but you’ll soon tire of all the extra attention and long for some time to yourself. You’ll be ready for the solitude that comes with this evening.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Good fortune comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s the luck of the draw, and other times it’s the luck that happens because you put in your time and worked your head off.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your mind will be like a chatty friend whose remarks influence your viewpoint to an almost annoying degree. Quiet it down. The fewer judgments you have the better you conduct yourself.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll get to the point and shed light on the matter at hand, and above all, you’ll tell the truth. That’s what others need and want from you, and you’ll meet and exceed their call.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll get suggestions, and some of them will seem strange. Before you put up a fight, first agree to try something, and then try it at least twice. Trying it twice will give you a chance to feel out the possibilities.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your opinion is valued among your friends, but it’s also valued among those you don’t know. They want to understand how you think and feel. You’ll be asked to vote or take a survey.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re not always the gregarious extrovert. There’s a private side of you, too, and you’ll feel so fulfilled as you connect with someone who understands your depth. Next month brings a financial opportunity not to be missed, so don’t be afraid to put money behind your talent. It’s a numbers game in November. Play often. Taurus and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 2, 24, 31 and 11.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Me: June 18, 1979. Boyfriend (of six months): May 4, 1978. We are planning to get married next year. So far, everything is going really well in our relationship, but marriage scares me. What do you think of our match?”

The most convincing case for your love connection is made by your shared Venus in Gemini and moon in Aries. Your relationship will be like a page-turner of a novel: exciting and suspenseful, the drama driving ever-forward. Both signs are youthful, so this love story never grows old. You may look and feel younger and more alive when you’re together! Your shared Venus lends an ability to smooth the rough edges, to easily maneuver through the tight spots implied in any coupling. This is handy for your Aries moon connection, which is a mixed blessing, as it doubles the potential for both positive and negative Aries traits. This is only a problem when you’re stressed out, impatient or irritable at the same time! Otherwise, you share warrior-like optimism and courage – perfect for meeting challenges in the same way.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: She wasn’t even a year old when she made her acting debut, and now “Nashville” star Hayden Panettiere is a show business veteran in her 25th year of life. It goes that way sometimes for Leos, and Panettiere was born when Mercury and Mars were in hardworking Virgo, suggesting that she’s happiest on the job, whatever the job may be.
