Fannie Flagg turns 67 on Friday. A staple game show panelist in the 1970s, the lesbian comedian and author got an Oscar nomination for adapting her gay-themed novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, into a hit movie.



Venus is squaring Mars, boosting creative and sexual tensions. Impulse and ego are very strong here, not true love. Commitments to a higher cause can prove dramatic. Promises of love will just explode.


VIRGO  Aug 23-Sep 22
You could be in for a raise. Make nice with people who decide that, but more importantly, make sure your true value is clear. Remember: Promotions bring bigger challenges.

LIBRA  Sep 23-Oct 22
Popularity is a double-edged sword. Invitations can cause friction with your family/mate. If your partner suggests that some of your pals are taking advantage of you, (s)he is probably right.

SCORPIO  Oct 23-Nov 21
Your efforts to get ahead will be noticed, but that will also highlight your faults. Your best strategy is to ask your boss or another expert for help where you need improvement.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22-Dec 20
If you’re looking for love, look among your friends. If you have one, get your baby to socialize more with your pals. In love and friendship, think about who you want to be with years from now.

CAPRICORN  Dec 21-Jan 19
Reality is about to lose those clean definitions you love so dearly. You can gain empathy and foresight, but like any new skill those can be challenging at first. Yes, you are going a little crazy, but that can be a brilliant adventure.

AQUARIUS  Jan 20-Feb 18
Secrets will be revealed! Keep your mouth shut. Focus on digging up your own with a counselor or a trusted confidante, and you could free yourself from old fears and anxieties.

PISCES  Feb 19-Mar 19
You have many opportunities to indulge fleeting passions, but don’t mistake them for love. Life is about to get harder. You’ll need to define and focus your goals, but that will take time.

ARIES  Mar 20-Apr 19
“All’s fair in love and war,” but there are consequences that go beyond victory. Beware of collateral damage to your reputation and other regrets. Are you really fighting for something worthwhile? Or just needing to assert yourself? Think ahead.

TAURUS  Apr 20-May 20
Cleaning house or digging up family secrets can expose a lot more than you bargained for. Someone will not be pleased. Keeping your home together may require open-mindedness.

GEMINI  May 21-Jun 20
A winning streak (in love and games won’t last long), so enjoy it while it does. Be careful, though — too much fun could upset your partner, or botch efforts to start something new.

CANCER  Jun 21-Jul 22
The need to assert yourself can run you afoul of authority. It may be more strategic in the long run to let a boss steal credit for your innovations. Deserved credit will come your way in time.

LEO  Jul 23-Aug 22
You may have all the answers, but don’t be too eager with them. Let people figure it out for themselves and you might even learn something in the process. Deal with small health problems now.
