Born on

August 17

A constructive and progressive period. All leisure activities, romance and relationships will assume an important role in your day-to-day affairs. All you need to do is to use your characteristic common sense to ensure that everything works out in your favour.

A stroke of financial luck should be on the way during the first quarter. Your stars will gain strength by leaps and bounds during the second. You will negotiate with people who share your views during the third. Donít allow emotions to override your objectivity during the best one.

August 18

An Arien moon is heading towards her negative region. You need strong motivation to take your ambitious plans to their logical conclusion. There will be many a slip between the cup and the lips. You are advised to be on your alert. The moment you slacken your vigil someone else will steal the show.

It is wiser to be cautious than to repent later on. Make sure that you donít volunteer to do an unfamiliar job at any time during the year as the chances of your making a mistake are bright.

August 19

Aquarian Mars is out to brighten your spirits and boost your morale. You may add more to your income than you had estimated earlier. You could expect more gains through speculation or sale-purchase of stocks. So your skillsful handling of finances could work wonders!

You will discover a unique method to multiply your income. Your desire to make a bid, shop or hunt for bargains may become more acute after December. Demands of close ones could drain your resources after March. Some restraint seems a must to save the situation.

August 20

With Mercury in the limelight, you will possess unusual skills of persuasion but may be hesitant to use them. You are in a good position to convince employers or partners that you can be trusted. People at work will have to bow to your superior wisdom.

October-November are good for socialising. If you are in a dead-end job, there will be a change for the better after January. Your thought-process, especially your assessment of people you work or live with, will improve during the last phase.

August 21

With Jupiter in a combustive posture, home and family matters, whether big or small, will keep you on the tenterhooks. You will have to do some serious thinking in order to regulate your commitments. The people who hover around you will try to pester you and put you in the wrong. The danger of too much work and visits of people at odd hours could tell upon your health. The youngsters in the family may cause problems if you fail to keep them under control.

August 22

There has never been a moment like this to spend money so lavishly on your family and personal needs. Venus, the planet of home and family being unfavourable is in no mood to oblige you. Your day-to-day expenditure has gone much above your estimate. You may be weighed down by domestic compulsions.

Donít think that this amounts to a situation of no return. It is just a temporary phase. Your luck will start smiling on you if you stick to the golden rule of cutting your coat according to the cloth.

August 23

The new year holds the promise of being a star-favoured one. With your confidence riding high, your personal affairs moving in the right direction and your bank balance in good health, there is every possibility of your leading a happy, contented and a carefree life. Travel and social encounters will help you gain experience. It is equally rewarding period to strike bargains, sell stocks and improve your financial fortunes. You could gain from the experience of someone else. Anyone standing in your way will have to concede defeat.
