Virgo may be the sixth sign of the Zodiac, but anyone born this week is trying to combine the sixth and seventh signs together because they were born on the cusp of Virgo and Libra.
This week’s birthday person tries to bring Mercury-ruled Virgo with Venus-ruled Libra into one human being. This can be a golden opportunity to understand the nature of their perfectionism and their need for romance.
Those celebrating a birthday now, need to learn how to control their critical nature, so they are able to become involved in a nearly perfect romantic relationship.
If you were born this week, your purpose in life is easing up on your need for perfection and allowing romance to blossom.
Once this is accomplished you will be living your “bliss.”
People born this week: Fiona Apple, Sept. 13, 1977; Amy Winehouse, Sept. 14, 1983; Oliver Stone, Sept. 15, 1946; Mickey Rourke, Sept. 16, 1956; Hank Williams, Sept. 17, 1923; Robert Redford, Sept. 18, 1938; Jeremy Irons, Sept. 19, 1948; and Sophia Loren, Sept. 20, 1934.
Best day this week will be Wednesday, the day before the full moon in Pisces. Although emotions may be running high, the overall day will be just fine to finish up anything started earlier this month. Mars remains in Leo and Venus has just joined Saturn in Scorpio. So expect a few relationship mishaps if you are not careful. After all, this is the week just before the full moon. This means emotions could go overboard.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) Making a promise now might not be the best idea. You are living with Uranus in Aries and so life could change in a heartbeat. The best way to face any challenge this week would be to turn the other way and ignore it. Then see how you feel a week from now once the full moon has come and gone.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Although some pals are trying your patience, it would be smart on your part to hold your temper. Otherwise, you will lose a longtime, important friend. They just won’t bother with the nonsense anymore and you will be left holding the bag. It may look OK now, but in time you will be sorry.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Your new scenario could be just what the doctor ordered to jazz up your life. No more chasing rainbows. From now on, your goals should be concrete. With that said, get in touch with some important pals and start some steady planning of the next big project. It will be successful if started soon.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Whether you are looking for more money or you just want acknowledgement of your good works, it is time to get to business. If you come up with the right answers you will be recognized within weeks. Otherwise, it will be the same old story and tears will flow. If you want smiles, do the work.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Learn from your past experiences and avoid expressing strong opinions this week. You have a good chance of winning the top prize both at work and socially. All you need to do is be your usual diplomatic self and you will win the latest game played by your friends.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) No more bouncing from one theme to another. You need to discover where you are the happiest and then stay there – through thick or thin. That is this week’s decision. Once it is made, there will be no turning back. Your job is also looking good with more security coming to you.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) If you celebrate a birthday in early October you must be aware you are going through some exciting changes. Take control of every situation and know that, if you play it properly, you will be the top player by the end of the year. Be charming but play to win every game.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) If you have done your homework and know exactly what you want, then make a move this week. Otherwise hold off and watch what others are doing and gently ease yourself into the background. In that way you will gain the upper hand and no one will know the better.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Your recent moves have been on the ball. They prove you know exactly what you are doing when it comes to your career. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do. You know as much or maybe more than most folks in your work environment. So keep moving forward and reap the rewards.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Your new start may appear lonely at first, but it is just what you need. No more backing off the tough issues, just do what needs doing. Once you adopt this philosophy, you will reap more power than you ever dreamed about. You are certainly headed toward your greatest adventure.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) What happened to you in the past week might appear to some as negative. But anyone looking at the recent events with a positive eye would know it is certainly for your good. Just keep smiling and know that you are the future winner no matter how it looks now.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) Your kindness this week will come back to you twofold in the weeks to come. So, be happy at what you have accomplished and with what you are planning. This is one of the best times of your life. A new friend could bring a totally new look into your life. Just don’t put all your trust in one place.
