We'll want what we can't have these first few weeks in September. Patience is a virtue. Driving our dissatisfaction is the conflict of relating information to others with confidence. It might be easier to address people through group emails and conference phone calls instead of approaching them individually. Don't make more of issues as they arise than necessary. Keep perspective by viewing problems as natural bumps in the road. We should take this time to step back from any uncomfortable situation and assess before assuming we have all the answers.
VIRGO – Temptation
August 23/24 – September 22/23
Temptation will be the theme for your birthday month. You'll be seduced by spontaneous opportunities that may seem like a great idea, but don't quite pan out the way you hoped. Go with the flow by being open to possibilities without pouncing on anything that comes your way. Let your pragmatic nature consider what is presented from every angle. You could be feeling a bit insecure lately, which is the reason you want to say "Yes!" Trust yourself and your practical instincts—they will steer you in the right (and safer) direction. Rely on your intuition and savvy.

LIBRA – Foolish & Awkward
September 23/24 – October 22/23
Expect to put out fires this month. It'll be quite exhausting. You'll be nervous tackling personal confrontations, but feel more at ease in front of a crowd or directing a group of colleagues. The spotlight will be on you in a big way, so pay attention to your appearance and demeanor. Be willing to listen, especially if someone is trying to teach you something new. You won't have a lot in the way of patience, let alone want to admit you're not an expert on EVERYTHING. Gasp! Keep your Libran sense of humor. Don't worry too much about looking foolish or awkward.
You won't feel foolish taking Classes & Seminars.
SCORPIO – A Velvet Glove
October 23/24 – November 22
You'll be chipping at the glass ceiling and stepping over red tape this month, Scorpions. It won't seem like you're getting very far due to the daily obstacles tripping you up along the way. In actuality, so long as you keep calm and carry on regally, bug-a-boo issues will dissipate. Avoid steamrolling ahead or using your razor-sharp sarcasm to make a point right now. Delegate in times of doubt or lean on others for support. Whatever you do, don't grandstand or make ultimatums. Be clear in your communications. Hand hold if you must, but wear a velvet glove.
Sit on a velvet seat at the Theater.
SAGITTARIUS – Shift Perspectives
November 23 – December 21/23
Let others have their say this month. Don't be too quick to judge or assume you know what's best as you don't have all the information to make that kind of judgment. A grand plan may not materialize, but this is probably for the best. Before you take anything negative personally, examine the situation dispassionately by tapping into your empathy reserves. It could be a matter of bad-timing, poor planning or a number of reason that have nothing to do with you. Let people surprise you now instead of assuming the worst. Shift perspectives whenever necessary.
Shift your perspective at Festivals.
CAPRICORN – Rut
December 22/24 – January 20
This month sees you in a self-created rut. Too much color-by-numbers, rote reactions and over-scheduling has sunk your spirit. Break up your routine with greater flexibility and spontaneity. Try something new. Let your hair down instead of stressing over every little detail. Your need to control your environment and time can be advantageous, but it can also be very draining. Stop seeking problems before they arise. Relax with confidence in yourself. The more freedom you practice Goats, the more likely you might be able to take a relationship or job to the next level.
Get out of your rut with Things to Do.
AQUARIUS – Pick Your Battles
January 21 – February 18
Pick your battles this month. Don't create conflicts just for the sake of argument. Whenever someone does something just a wee little bit different than how you would do it, RELAX! Your way may not be the best method that suits the other person. Keep your opinions to yourself. You might be concerned about a loved one right now, which is only amplifying your need to rule everything like a dictator. Express your thoughts, but wait until they're ready to open up. It could be more than you imagined, so give this person time to sort through their feelings. Chillax!
Pick a good Film.
PISCES – Logic
February 19 – March 20
Utilize your head instead of your heart in the upcoming weeks. You are at your best when you blend logic with emotions, but now is a good time to stay practical. Reflect and examine situations with a clear mind. Keep your restless feelings to yourself or tamp them down. Be as objective as possible. Review dynamics without injecting your needs or wants into the drama. Attend to your deeper self with relaxation exercises or doing your favorite physical activity. Take time to schedule in a haircut or a mani/pedi. You'll have a positive outlook and look good too!
Use your logic by going to Free Events.
ARIES – Unique Quirks
March 21 – April 20
You're like a musician who can't hear music right now or a colorblind painter. What you see and what you want to do are at odds with one another, but if approached correctly, your unique quirks could actually assist you in moving forward. Embrace your foibles and peccadilloes. Resist feeding the frustration monster by sanding down your rougher edges. Look within instead of without. Have a happy-go-lucky attitude and you'll find things will be both happier and luckier. Be generous with your time and energy, but not if you plan on keeping score. Live in the now!
Be quirky with Art.
TAURUS – Emotional Skinny Dip
April 21 – May 20/21
Explore your emotional depths this month. Skinny dip in them. By that, however, don't fly into sudden bursts of rages or pity parties. Manage your anger by expressing your sensitive side. You need cool, calm and collected water right now. Avoid any histrionic or narcissistic folks. Set yourself free with carefree people. Be silly, be joyful, and receive affection without suspicion. There's a lesson here in that your authentic self will naturally gravitate to positive situations. You'll be a better partner, parent and/or friend if you stay true and optimistic about the future.
Skinny dip in Music & Concerts.
GEMINI – Benevolent
May 21/22 – June 21
You'll be feeling benevolent this month. Anyone with problems should go to you STAT! A soft shoulder for others to cry on? Check. An open ear? Check. A big bear hug and pat on the back. Check, check and checkmate. Be careful of all these warm fuzzies going to your brainer side. You might take on more burdens than you should accept or act out of guilt or co-dependency. Maintain healthy boundaries. Be there for everyone, but make sure your needs are also being met. Travel is indicated and recommended. Treat yourself to a fun, quickie, relaxing vacation.
Treat yourself to a Weekend Getaway.
CANCER – Out on a Limb
June 22 – July 22
Go out on a limb so long as you stay on the branch. Now is a fantastic time for wild adventures! The catch is that it doesn't give you carte blanche to go all-out crazy either. Temper your boisterousness with good 'ole fashioned common sense. Let go, but don't lose your head. The right approach is everything when it comes to temperance and temptation. Be aware of friends and loved ones moods or struggles. Include them in your sassy brand of fun and lift their spirits. In return, they may keep your high-minded ideas at a safe cruising altitude just over the clouds.
Go out on a limb with Nightlife.
LEO – Overwhelmed Much?
July 23 – August 22/23
Overwhelmed? The next few weeks will see you multitasking, burning the candle at both ends, juggling porcupines while running on hot coals. Use the two-letter word "No!" Yes, it'll plague you with guilt, worry and feelings of disappointment, but you need to be honest with others. Let off steam, allow yourself to go stir-crazy and flirt with frustrations by releasing your anger. Too much is simply more than you Lions can handle. Be realistic about your abilities. Don't be afraid to turn down an opportunity if it'll wind up giving you an ulcer. Find ways to de-stress.
Calm down with your Pets.
