VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Deal with emotional situations realistically. Make an offer that is feasible and enticing; you will overcome a stalemate. Your ability to adapt will turn you into a role model for those you live or deal with today. 2 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep busy. The more you get done, the less others will have to complain about. Use your intelligence when dealing with situations that require action. Coming up with a plan that is simple and effective will encourage others to pitch in and help. 4 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Learn by watching how others react. It will give you a sense of what will be well-received and what won’t. A unique approach to the way you set up your house will complement a creative process you are trying to develop. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t let your emotions take over when dealing with people who share your opinion. Freedom of speech and letting others do as they please will give you leeway to dance to your own beat. Don’t meddle; you will curtail interference. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t reveal your assets in an attempt to manipulate others. Focus on enjoying people for who they are, not what they have. Developing a give-and-take relationship will encourage equality and compatible results. Offer love, not cash. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Getting along with others will be half the battle today. Listen and offer suggestions, but don’t feel you have to indulge in something that is not a preference. Discourage indulgent behavior, but don’t get into an argument. Ask nicely and move on. 4 stars
