Y O U R  D A T E  W I T H  S T A R
August 20 to August 26
Aries
[March 21 to April 20]
Your stars may keep you on your toes both at work and at home. Lack of cooperation on the part of your colleagues is another disadvantage but you will manage the show by yourself.
Taurus
[ April 21 to May 20 ]
You will move fast to gain an upper hand over your rivals. Anyone who dares to block your way will be pushed back. The difficulties you have undergone and are still facing will be worth the bother.
Gemini
[ May 21 to June 21 ]
Your social stars are looking exceptionally powerful. You will tread very carefully, sticking to ethical norms. The reputation you earn now will gradually push you towards achievements and honours in the future.
Cancer
[ June 22 to July 22 ]
Forgive and forget should be your policy during this week. The project that stirred your imagination in the past will look like a waste of time and energy. Unless you make your target absolutely clear, you are likely to dither.
Leo
[ July 23 to Aug 22 ]
If health-concerns have started bothering you, it is time to take preventive measures. If you ignore the warning signals, you are in for more problems.
Virgo
[ Aug 23 to Sept 22 ]
Your stars well push you into the limelight. You will lay the past to rest, clear up unfinished business and begin your life anew. Your maturity of judgement will be widely acknowledged.
Libra
[Sept 23 to Oct 22 ]
At work your colleagues should value your original and thought-provoking proposals. Ignore all gatherings that encourage gossip and rumour. Friday may find you in a secretive mood. Saturday is however, your favourite day.
Scorpio
[Oct 23 to Nov 22 ]
Your desire to aim at two targets with one stone may prove counter-productive. Your stars advise you not to be too much ambitious, enthusiastic and pretentious.
Sagittarius
[ Nov 23 to Dec 22]
There is a clear indication of an increase in your income. People who took you for a ride during the past will revise their opinion and start-rallying around you. Thursday happens to be your lucky day.
Capricorn
[Dec 23 to Jan 20]
With commitments mounting, there is hardly any scope to put your feet up and relax. New responsibilities could also add to your problems.
Aquarius
[ Jan 21 to Feb 19 ]
Your benefic stars have stolen a march over the malefic ones. You will rule supreme in the realm of your activity. The name and fame you earn this time will beat all previous records.
Pisces
[Feb 20 to March 20 ]
Your planets may wage a tough war on your finances. There is a dire deed to curb your extravagant tendencies. Anything you take up without assessing the risk involved could have serious repercussions.


Born on

August 20
With a dignified Sun in the limelight, you will exercise influence and authority. The only condition is that whatever you do should be with full confidence, earnestness and dignity.

The areas supposed to stand in good stead are education legal matters and welfare of children. If in service, extreme care is needed to handle secret information. Undue generosity, however, is your weak point and needs to be guarded against. Try to develop your diplomatic qualities as far as possible.

August 21
A combust moon may keep you discontented and depressed. Lack of leisure and burden of work may tire you. The state of your finances may also trouble you. You are advised to tread carefully especially in financial deals. Your firm resolve to balance your budget is not likely to be successful.

Hurdles, delays and setbacks may keep you in a despondent mood. You may have to mend a relationship during November-December. Be cautious while travelling during March-April. The clouds of gloom may disappear after May, 2001.

August 22
There are definite signals that your income graph may climb up dramatically. What is a losing game for others may prove a grand victory for you. You will emerge, wiser, stronger and much more confident. A tendency to show-off should have no place in your scheme of things.

Your social life will remain in full swing during the first quarter. Your reputation as a sincere friend will be hailed during the second. You will push yourself too hard during the third. Donít be unwise regarding your health during the last one.

August 23
Mercury in ascendancy may encourage you to make your mark as an erudite scholar. The choices that you make during this period will get the approval of your friends and loved ones.

A special time of the year is fast approaching. With your exceptional ability, you will manage to be in the driving seat. Lost objects, if any, will be found. Decisions which were postponed will be taken. Old friends will turn up out of the blue. The problems that have irked you will finally be laid to rest.

August 24
With a Taurean Jupiter in the house of governance, you can exploit your potential to the maximum. It is, in fact, the right occasion to fix your goals and achieve them. If you are in service, you are likely to be provided with the support needed for your elevation to the next step.

The key time to prove your calibre may start from November. You will be riding on the wings of energy during February-March. Your ability to consolidate your gains will be exemplary during May-June. Keep your ambitious plans under wraps during the end part.

August 25
Sometimes discretion is the better part of valour. Your close associates and well-wishers may not approve of your tendency to chase other people, even if your intentions are good. In fact, at times like this there is always a fear that your might waste your resources by overspending but even if that happens, you will still finish better-off than you had started.

It will pay to be slightly sceptical and check out the facts. You may fall in love unexpectedly but make sure that you are not let down later.

August 26
A high-spending phase is about to trap you. Your endeavours to balance your budget may be unfruitful. If you are planning to speculate, may you have to face obstacles. Hence a lot of care and caution is the need of the hour.

As October gets underway, excessive work and sky-rocketting expenditure are the two major problems that you will have to wrestle with. From February onwards, your craze to gamble will dominate but there is little hope of the die being cast in your favour.
