Horoscopes: Aug. 27, 2014

Yesterday Venus antagonized Jupiter. Now she’s using her feminine wiles to pull Mars into the conflict. Venus/Mars strife usually hits close to home, as the male/female dynamic is at the root of our essence. We would not exist without it! Hopefully this disharmony will precede a greater appreciation and understanding of both energies.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). What is this growing sense of contentment creeping up on you? Wait, no, it’s better than that. You’re happy – really happy! Maybe there are reasons, and maybe it’s just because you decided to be.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may be playing a rather small part today, but you are committed to the work and it shows. Your courteous attitude and the interest you take in the work of others will pay off immediately and down the line.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have a toolbox for solving problems, and among your most used instruments are your smile, your charm and your unique ability to listen past what people are saying and into what they really want.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Avoid those with a bleak outlook, no matter how smart they sound. What’s so smart about bringing people down or showing them a logical, ugly reality? Keep the magical thinking alive.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll apply your keen intuition to your love life and come up with a new way to relate to others. Your nearest and dearest will benefit, and so will the world at large.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everyone is quirky in some way, though your quirks are more obvious today. Your quirks will act up, shout out, lean in – and endear a few fans in the process.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Life is not inherently fair by human standards, but things will have a way of pleasantly balancing out. Tables turn, ironies play out, the meek get their inheritance, and the powerful bend in humble deference.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). They say you can’t please everyone all the time, but then again, “they” never met you in the game. You’re on. You’re thoughtful. You’re playful. You’re really just trying to please yourself, and the rest get happy being a part of that.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To each his own. That, quite simply, is the lesson of the day. It will be hard to resist righting the obvious slights, ignorances and pretentions. But it’s probably not your job to do so.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It may be requested that you perform a certain function when in reality you are there for moral support. Do not discount the importance of moral support. The feeling can be more important than the product.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s time for those material possessions that don’t serve you well to be released to someone who will put them to good use. Immediately, the lack of encumbrance will make you feel younger.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Play up your quirks for all they are worth because people need to know what they are getting when they get you. Besides, those quirks are what someone will fall in love with.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re an attractive mystery. The others will keep coming around to try to figure you out. Flattered by their attention, you’ll enjoy the perks of popularity in September and October. November brings new work and different rules. Keep your eyes peeled for financial opportunity in December, and you’ll buy low and sell high. Aquarius and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 3, 33, 28 and 17.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I got into my current job because I thought I should be smart and make money before I followed my passion, but now I feel like I’m starting to turn into someone I can’t relate to. I wear a suit, but my heart wears flip-flops. What career advice can you give a Pisces?”

This either-or scenario is too limiting for you, dear Pisces. Don’t forget, you are one of the signs of duality. Your symbol is two fish swimming toward each other – let that empower you. You need both sides of this equation to be at your best. If you only did your flip-flop side, you would risk becoming weak, dependent or, worse, having the arrogant and entitled attitude of those who do not understand the true value of work. Right now, that business side of you builds motivation, funds and the character necessary to go forward and succeed. So wear flip-flops with your suit (metaphorically only, please). You’ll quit the day job when it makes complete and total sense on paper, as well as in your mind.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: As Jesse Pinkman in “Breaking Bad,” Virgo Aaron Paul earned acting awards, critical acclaim and an avid following. Look for him in the starring role of the upcoming Ridley Scott epic, “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” a dramatic account of Moses’ hand in leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt. Paul was born when Mercury and Jupiter were in Leo, the sign of entertainment.
