Horoscopes: Aug. 23, 2014

From page A7 | August 23, 2014 |

The Virgo sun is like a gas card handed from doting parents to children in college. It’s assistance. It’s fuel. It will help out. It can’t be used for much else than the intended purpose, and that’s the beauty of it. The Virgo sun keeps us honest. It wants to support, but it doesn’t want to enable.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your thoughts link to one another chain-like. Change one link, and it will lead to a different thought and a different result. Create the chain, and you create your life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your standards and expectations may be different from those of your friends. Now you can help one another, playing a game of checks and balances.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your day will be long, but your night will be longer – and that’s when all the fun happens. The PM brings one of the most exciting and eventful social opportunities you’ve had in a while.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your empathic powers are strong, and you’ll be able to tell straight away that something is a little off with a loved one. Without prying too much, you’ll get to the bottom of it before it blows up into a full-on issue.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You love to contribute and would do so even if you didn’t get any feedback or reward whatsoever. Today, when someone tells you that your contribution is meaningful and appreciated, it’s the cherry on your sundae.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t worry too much about what’s going to be discussed. Egotistical people will always find a way to turn the focus back to themselves. They are never more than one sentence away from the turnaround.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The odd jobs you took in the past have prepared you for the completely normal job you will take in the near future. Today is about mentally preparing yourself for the challenges ahead.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your choices may not be 100 percent healthy, but the very fact that you choose moderation over extremity is better for you than if you were to toe too hard of a line.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It will be important to observe how your interactions are landing, because you’ll be setting up a social pattern that is likely to repeat hundreds of times.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have an excellent sense of what’s really going on. Your best guess is probably accurate, so act on it. Acting on it is better than talking about it. Action will begin an interesting chain reaction.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you put yourself out there, you’re going to get good reviews, and bad ones, too. But you don’t need to read any of them right away. Wait three days or so.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The monologues that go on and on and on usually signify a person with too much time on his or her hands. You prefer to keep it brief. It’s professional, and it’s dignified.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Long ago, you decided to outdo the competition, and that’s exactly what will happen. It’s a race, and you’ll start out in the lead because of your enormous energy this time of year. In six week’s time, the education you seek will play to your advantage. Philanthropy is the focus in December; love steals focus in January. Aries and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 22, 14, 38 and 6.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I lost my cousin in a fire. Since her death, I’ve had strange dreams, and I’m trying to find out what actually happened to her. Is there an underlying meaning to my dreams and feelings?”

I am so sorry for your loss. Psychologists say dreaming is one way the unconscious mind works out shocks or traumatic events that our waking mind can’t handle or accept. The Greeks had a slightly different take on dreaming. They built dreaming temples called Aesculapians where people would go hoping for dream messages. They called these “healing dreams.” I encourage you to explore your dreams, because the potential for healing there is enormous. All of your feelings are accepted in dreamtime. Consider arranging an astral visit with your cousin in the realm of dreams. It’s not complicated – all you have to do is ask and then go to sleep. Be sure to keep a notebook by your bed so you can record your dreams while they are still fresh in your mind.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy birthday to legendary shooting guard Kobe Bryant, who once helped the Los Angeles Lakers win three NBA championships in a row. Bryant has both his sun and Saturn, the planet of lessons, in Virgo, suggesting that even though he’s unquestionably exceptionally talented, it’s his work ethic that keeps him in the winner’s circle. His Mercury in Leo adds a bit of flash.
