This week we have a birthday person who is born on the cusp of Leo and Virgo. So anyone born from Aug. 16 – 21 will be known as a Leo and then on Aug. 22 they will be known as a Virgo. The difference between the Leo and Virgo is like night and day.
Leo loves drama, attention, crowds of people and an atmosphere of royalty. Virgo enjoys hard work, service and details. They enjoy schedules and will be on time.
Leo is a fixed sign, so the Leo born this week could have opinions on every subject under the sun and they will not change one thought, while the Virgo born this week could be flexible and willing to do anything to please. Combine the two personalities together and you have the almost perfect person.
People born this week: Kathie Lee Gifford, Aug. 16, 1953; Leslie Ann Warren, Aug. 17, 1946; Sean Penn, Aug. 18, 1960; Shelly Winters, Aug. 19, 1920; Rosalyn Carter, Aug. 20, 1927; Tipper Gore, Aug. 21, 1948; Ron Paul, Aug. 20, 1935; Stephen King, Aug. 21, 1947; Dorothy Parker, Aug. 22, 1893.
Emotions are riding high this weekend since the full moon will be on Tuesday, Aug. 20, in Aquarius. Noon to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, is the best time to get things started or completed this week. Mars goes into Leo on the 26th. So expect some action with fixed signs.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) A family situation could be quickly resolved if you will take the time to listen to the latest story on why it happened in the first place. Take time to reflect and the entire matter will be settled to your benefit. The real need is for you to be heard. So keep trying.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Your golden track record on finding answers to difficult questions should serve you well this week. So sit back and let your past be your guide. An old friend will be helpful as you make decisions for the future based on your past. Just smile and life will once again start to work for you.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) No matter what the issues that confront your pals may be, you should try to stay out of it. This is no time to get caught up in the nonsense of your so-called pals. This is a time to spend some time alone and know that your soul mate is on the way. With this in mind, clear your datebook.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Instead of trying to make up excuses for spending your time to advance your future earnings, you will be surprised at the influence you have. Stay away from situations that don’t advance your needs both at home and work. Otherwise, you will once again miss the opportunity you want so much. Your hard work will pay off only if you cooperate.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) When the full moon is heading in our direction as it is now, sometimes it is hard to understand our perceptions of some situations. So slow down and review your needs. Find out what it is you really want in your future. Don’t let others force you into the wrong role.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Look for a surprise both in the work and romance departments of your life. Whatever happens, slow and easy is the game. Say little and then you will come out as the person in charge. Just know this is the week of the full moon and emotions are often overwhelming. Live accordingly by taking nothing personally.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) There has been plenty of pressure surrounding your life. So if you followed your inner guide, you have made a few changes and they will be for the better. Don’t let anyone talk you out of your new ideas. They will take you places you never dreamed of going and you will succeed.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Just in case you are feeling some relationship pressure, it would be best to let it go and avoid any broken hearts. This is the time of the year when emotions can run high and you can get caught up in someone else’s problems. So smile this week and let it blow over.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) If you are an early Sagittarius it would be wise to simmer down and understand Neptune is hitting your sun. When this happens, perception becomes clouded and is usually upside down. The remedy is to take no action until after the full moon on Tuesday.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) You are feeling the dramatics of heavy astro vibrations this week and it might be wise to avoid making any serious moves until the end of the month. The change you are considering will bring in more power and money, but it needs much thought before you make the final move.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) You have a secret admirer, so be confident and cheerful and soon you could know just who it is. A new program is opening for you and you should step forward and enjoy your new life. An unexpected opportunity could open many doors for you. Give it a try.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) A sudden and unexpected happening in your life could open your eyes to the real meaning of what you should be doing. So try paying attention to your dreams and intuition and the answer will come in a heartbeat. When “one door closes, another opens” should be your new motto.
