Born on

August 19
A dignified sun makes you determined and resolute. Hope and cheer may prevail. Your wisdom shall subdue your doubts and you will make a mark in your area of expertise. People you live or work with will be more tolerant than ever before.

Donít feel upset if your social life becomes a drain on your purse. You seem all set to achieve your aims after November. You will, however, be at your very best if you focus on one issue at one time.

August 20
The million dollar question before you is now is how to get your calibre recognised. Your weak point is a combust moon that may keep you on your toes both at work and at home. A promising opportunity you have been on the look out or could slip through your fingers. Although the general tide of events is not moving your way, donít allow your disturbed state of mind to cloud your judgement. This will help you to regain confidence and distinguish between what is important and what is to be ignored. Try to make as few promises as possible.

August 21
With a dignified Mars in a central position in your chart nothing should be beyond your grasp. If you are gearing yourself up to undertake a Herculean task the time has arrived when you can try your luck and make headway. Mars, being a fiery planet, is likely to energise you.

The period to make your presence felt shall start from November onwards. Try to minimise job-related stress so that you are able is cope with challenging situations.

August 22
Everything hinges on Mercury which has shaken off its combustive posture in the recent past. Your rivals have had their day and now it is your turn to sparkle. You will be having a deeper grasp of facts. Mercury is a planet of learning. The emphasis lies on gaining knowledge.

The best time of the year is between November and March. An upswing in your social life will keep you in good humour. You will be in a much better frame of mind to face ground realities and act with a free mind.

August 23
A year of mixed trends. Your inclination to spend and your preference to go in for luxuries will increase but your income is not likely to increase in the same ratio. Despite ample care and caution, certain unavoidable compulsions, including hospitality, entertainment, health care and the welfare of your relatives, could prove to be a big burden. There is, however, a silver lining in the cloud. Whatever good you do for others will be reciprocated at the proper time. It is wrong to ignore friends.

August 24
An exceptionally hectic year. This is no occasion to sit back and keep your fingers crossed. Suspicions concerning the intentions of your associates will start receding. Excess of expenditure, no doubt, can alarm you for the moment but you will have no regrets to have spent for a cause which may be very close to your heart. A kind gesture towards a needy friend could raise your stature in the eyes of the people around you. In love also you can shape events to suit your mood and sensibility.

August 25
Your planetary potential does not mean that everything will go with a swing. You will insist that everyone plays fair and follows rules scrupulously. If you let people exploit you, it could recoil on you any moment.

You may have to do some serious thinking to set your own house in order. The key factor, however, is not to feel shy and assert yourself to make others conscious of their obligations. Use your good offices to win their confidence.
