Aug 31: What's in the stars for you today?

emily flake The Globe and Mail


Set yourself challenges for the coming 12 months that are way beyond what others would expect of you. That's part of your problem: you have been living down to other people's low expectations. Live up to your talent instead.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

A creative or artistic project can be taken to a higher level over the next few days, but it will require patience and persistence as well as your usual awesome energy levels. Have you got the staying power? We'll see.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

If you have promised to do something for friend or family member then you have no option but to see it through to completion, even if you are now having second thoughts. Your word is your bond - it cannot be broken.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

If you get your act together and get to work over the next few days you will achieve something out of the ordinary. You have never lacked for ideas but you do sometimes lack for application. Knuckle down and get it done.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

You are in one of your can-do moods at the moment and whatever goal you set your sights on will be reached in record quick time. Don't forget to bring other people into your plans as well. Success is more fun when it is shared.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

Don't worry about whether or not you are doing the "right thing" today because in the greater scheme of existence the "right thing" is whatever you want it to be. If it feels right to you then nothing else matters. Do it.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

There is something you should have finished weeks, maybe months, ago but for one reason or another never got round to completing. Now is the time to go back and get it done. With the sun in your sign you can't possibly fail.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

You will be extraordinarily dynamic today, so much so that others might start to wonder if you are on some kind of stimulant! The only stimulant you need is the realization that life is a wonderful adventure - and you're part of it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

Try not to think too much about what you are doing today because you will do better when you just get on with it. Sometimes you over analyze the events of your life but there is really no need. Your soul will always guide you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

Routine bores you at the best of times and if you have to follow a mapped out route today you may end up screaming. How did you get into this position? Retrace your steps and find out - and don't let it happen again.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

You will be more energetic on a thinking level than a doing level today, and that's good because you need to get your head round certain ideas and concepts that don't come naturally to you. Think deeper now - do more later.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

Some people enjoy making a drama out of a crisis and it will be your job today to calm them down and point out that life is not so bad - in fact, in many ways it is better than it has ever been. Focus on that.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

You should be promoting yourself for all you are worth now, not only because you are worth a great deal more than you have been getting but because you'll only get noticed if you make a bit of a noise.
