There is no one as practical as a Virgo who celebrates a birthday this week. Ruled by Mercury, this earth sign person is intellectual, detail oriented and above all addicted to perfection.

A Virgo often mixes a critical point of view with love. In other words, if they did not love you so, they would not try to help you become a perfect person. Now that may not make sense to you, but to a Virgo it is an endearing charm and a reason for being.

The Virgo gets along best with other earth signs Capricorn and Taurus. This trio enjoys making money and also the work that goes with it.

Since Virgo is ruled by Mercury, they are mental and into detail. They love the idea of service, but foremost on their agenda is work. As a matter of fact a Virgo without work is a sad soul. It would do well for any Virgo to volunteer their time and effort to make things right in the world.


People born this week: Dr. Phil McGraw, Sept. 1, 1950; Mark Harmon, Sept. 2, 1951; Charlie Sheen, Sept. 2, 1965; Beyonce Knowles, Sept. 4, 1981; Michael Keaton, Sept. 5, 1951; Jeff Foxworthy, Sept. 6, 1958; Corbin Bernsen, Sept. 7, 1954; and Brooke Burke, Sept. 8, 1971.


The full moon, known as a blue moon, is in Pisces in Friday’s early morning hours. So we will start feeling calmer by midafternoon and then by Saturday life will once again start to glow. Two Virgos felt some of the afterpain of having too good of a time. Both England’s Prince Harry, born on Sept. 15, 1984, who is third in line for the throne, and Lance Armstrong, the former all-American athlete, who was born on Sept. 18, 1971, found themselves in sad situations last week because of poor judgment in the past.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) Try to pinpoint any weakness you might find and try dealing with it during the upcoming week. You will be delighted to just deal with it and move on from there. One of your favorite people could turn up unexpectedly and surprise you. Don’t take it too seriously or you will be disappointed.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Use your charm to get yourself out of any uncomfortable situations you may find yourself in this week. Just remember you are smart enough to work your way out of any social situation. An old friend could ask a favor. Just make sure you want to become tangled in the drama it always involves.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You may be tossed into a crazy battle which could easily be avoided by using your sharp wit. Don’t get yourself caught up in something you don’t want to do. You have tried this before and it did not work. After all Jupiter, the planet of success, is in Gemini. Take advantage of it and move on to bigger and better things.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Don’t let early challenges in a new project discourage you. It will take some time to organize and get things moving in your direction, but once the program gets under way, you will love it. So instead of looking at the dark side, try moving past that behavior and relax. Look for the good in every situation and you will find it.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Try avoiding any negative influences that happen to come your way now. Look at each happening in your life this week as life lessons. Also be aware that you are learning how to ignore incidents that push your emotional buttons. Once you get that totally under control, you are well on your way to be the success you always dreamed about.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Although there has been a certain amount of upheaval in your life in the past, the time has come to look for the good. You may have made decisions in the past that weren’t too smart, but they are lessons learned. A new friend could certainly turn into a great love. So look at the bright side of events and know love is on its way.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) This is the week to learn what real friendship is all about. But first you must remember that you get back what you give out. So the answer is give only kindness and it will return now. A relationship you are about to start could help you understand how loving you have become.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) The lessons of the past are now taking hold in your life and you should be proud of how far you have come. Your goal will now be to clear your life of the negative stuff you used to put up with by dancing to a different beat. There is no need to be concerned now. Just know you are headed in the right direction.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) If you can fit some time alone into you schedule this week, it would be wise. You need to start planning your next move when it comes to finding your destiny. Avoid letting people give you too much advice. By taking the views of others you are losing your own creativity. Don’t let it happen.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Overthinking situations you are now dealing with might be the wrong way to deal with it. Try relaxing and letting new folks into your life. You need to understand there are two sides to every story and there are two sides to every life. You need to develop the fun side. So plan a party, have some fun and then get back to work.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Spending some time with a happy member of your circle of friends would be a good idea. Take a break from your constant need to be needed. A new love could appear on the horizon and should be welcomed with open arms into your life. Try meeting deadlines early and your schedule will allow you some much needed fun.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) If a partner is sometimes confusing you and making you wonder what is going on here, just remember that the culprit is Neptune which is in Pisces. Avoid trying to figure out motives and life will be much easier now. Neptune causes confusion; so the more you try to figure things out, the more confused you become. Try relaxing.
