THE TRIBUNE SPECIALS
50 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE

TERCENTENARY CELEBRATIONS
 
Y O U R  D A T E  W I T H  S T A R
August 25 to August 31
Aries
[ March 21 to April 20 ]
A welcome surprise in the current week is a new friend waiting to enter your life. You will feel so impressed by his personality that you would like to establish a rapport with him.
Taurus
[ April 21 to May 20 ]
It is not always that easy to judge either people or the significant trends to the best of ones ability. There is a danger that all those you confide in could be unreceptive, unreliable.
Gemini
[ May 21 to June 21 ]
An exalted Mercury lends you its full support as you celebrate one success and get ready for the next one. Disaster awaits the man who plants ill-will against you or gets into your way during this week.
Cancer
[ June 22 to July 22 ]
With a Piscean moon actively assisting you, nothing but the very best is going to appeal you. This is a sign of good luck for all of you whose dreams are about to become a reality.
Leo
[ July 23 to Aug 22 ]
Ambitious Leos are likely to be on the crest of an exciting wave. If they happen to be sincere performers and mean business, there will be no looking back. No one can dare to minimise their achievements.
Virgo
[ Aug 23 to Sept 22 ]
Despite the fact that you are bubbling with energy and enthusiasm, you should not stretch yourself beyond a certain limit. There is so much to do in such little time.
Libra
[Sept 23 to Oct 22 ]
Life is replete with opportunities and you are in a suitable frame of mind to avail of them. If your expectations are unrealistically high, you are likely feel disgusted.
Scorpio
[Oct 23 to Nov 22 ]
A discreet love affair, flexibility and socialising on a grand scale are few things that you will be looking forward to during this week. There is no doubt that the effort ensures a handsome return at times.
Sagittarius
[ Nov 23 to Dec 22]
The incoming week may see you with a greater mobility than ever before. You deserve to take a break from a routine that has been hectic and tiring to the extreme. Do not expect the tedium to diminish.
Capricorn
[Dec 23 to Jan 20]
A forward-looking period. It is the time to widen your personal contacts and establish a rapport with high-ups at the seat of power and various social, cultural and spiritual organisations.
Aquarius
[ Jan 21 to Feb 19 ]
Weighed down in neck-deep expenditure, you will remain off-colour for sometime more. Your investment may fail to yield the returns you have pinned your hopes on.
Pisces
[Feb 20 to March 20 ]
Celestially speaking, it is a pleasant time for cautious Pisceans. Since your finances are on a sound footing, you will be making sensible purchases. In case of a bad bargain you will be able to buy your way out soon.


Born on

August 25: The planetary activity in your chart seems to be in full swing. Sun and Mars, both friends, are in the most favourable region of your solar chart. At home and work, while selling or purchasing and looking for new ways of earning money, you are not going to lag behind. Life should gather more verve with each passing day.

The emphasis will shift towards new modes of earning money. Career-seekers will cover more ground after December, you must take sometime off during March-April. Keep a strict watch on your wallet especially during the last part of the quarter.

August 26: With the moon in the eighth house, the situation around you is not likely to undergo any change in the near future. You may think big or even try to build castles in the air but there is little hope you could gain any tangible reward. There is, however, a remote chance of winning over an old friend who has slipped out of your circle, your intentions to please others may be genuine but your methods of tackling people may not be up to the mark. Hence the result of your efforts will not be more than an eyewash.

August 27: A praiseworthy year for socialising and merry-making. You will consolidate your gains and pave the way for a better tomorrow. Good relations at work are your main aim and you will not deflect from your chosen path. You will also remain vigilant that your efforts are well utilised and not wasted.

You will turn a rival into a sincere friend, your spending capacity will increase from December onwards. A smoother phase awaits you from February onwards. If an adventurous activity is on our agenda, it may be kept pending for sometime. A rewarding journey is on the cards during the last quarter.

August 28: A progressive and hopeful period, intended to draw out the best in you. What is baffling for others can prove to be a shot in the arm for you. With each passing day, you will win friends and earn goodwill not only in your own circle but also from unfamiliar quarters. Partners and colleagues you deal with will be too glad to offer full assistance to you. It is also a buoyant year to get out and about. August, however, is ominous for undertaking a long journey.

August 29: Your social diary will remain full for most part of the year. At times, you will feel overburdened and may have to postpone or cancel a couple of less important engagements.

You will be paying special attention to a friend whom you have ignored for a pretty long time. You can expect some very pleasant happenings during March-April. The period May onwards is also good to pave the way for your future success. You are not in a mood to scale down your expectations. Be prepared for a pleasant surprise.

August 30: Amidst some misunderstanding or confusion that clouds the atmosphere, strained feelings could be anticipated on the home front. Flexibility and your ever-readiness to accommodate your inmates is your plus point. Thanks to a favourable Venus, your ruling planet, the situation is not likely to get out of hand at all.

You should, however, avoid shopping sprees unless you are fully convinced that the purchases you are contemplating are actually the need of the hour. There is no fun in fixing your eye on a thing which is just out of reach.

August 31: With a Geminian Saturn in the limelight, your upper-most concern revolves around home, family life, upbringing of children, welfare of the inmates as a whole and to re-plan, reshape and reorganise your working schedule. Although some urgent family obligations will stress you out, you should not allow your poise to be disturbed. Your enemies are boredom and pressure tactics exercised by your bosom friends. This could leave you feeling on edge and disgusted for the reasons you have no control over whatsoever, so there is a need to move cautiously.

A few generous gestures on your part may deplete your funds. An alarming rise in your daily expenditure may give you sleepless nights January onwards.
