August 09, 2011|Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Your big idea is becoming a full-blown ambition. Seek flexible teammates to help you work out the details.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): The better you can tolerate small, bothersome details, the further you will go in business and pleasure.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): You may find that you are easily distracted by things that don't really matter. Take it as a sign to change tracks.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): Your will is not the same as what the others want from you. Do not make any decision when you are feeling overloaded or pressured.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Though you try not to expect too much from loved ones, you also know that patterns are likely to repeat.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are willing to take a risk when it comes to love, but not when it comes to commerce. Keep your money where it is.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Love erases discomfort. This afternoon, knowing that you are accepted and adored will come as a psychic relief.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Children want to be grown-ups, and grown-ups want to return to a life of few responsibilities and limited liability. You could start a trend.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll plan your workout well, though unpredictable events will challenge that plan. Your strength is your astounding adaptability.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Just because someone is a supporter of yours doesn't mean that an exchange will be easy.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There is little to be gained from fame. Pursue usefulness instead. That is what will make you happy and wealthy.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Get on top of the wave, and you'll glide like the freest of beings. Get underneath it, and you'll be pummeled and dragged down.

Today's birthday (Aug. 9): You have serious projects to complete this year, so you plan well, guard your time and keep everything on course. October brings a victory. Your personal life sparkles with opportunity and surprises. You'll journey with a kindred spirit in December. There will be many amusements. You'll close a deal in May. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 25, 2, 24 and 35.
