IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you express a unique kind of creativity. Others often seek you out for advice or for help sleuthing through problems.
You find interesting ways of resolving the seemingly unresolvable. If you are single, you could meet many different potential suitors. Know that Mr. or Ms. Right could be right around the corner! If you are attached, the two of you happily hop around to different sets of friends with totally diverse interests. You might decide to plan on taking a series of courses together. A fellow SAGITTARIUS adds more excitement to your life!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
