Sacha Baron Cohen turns 41 on Saturday. The writer-director-comedian shot to international stardom as Borat, but also played gay fashion journalist Bruno, pictured in character, in a popular feature film. Last week, he announced that his next project will be called The Lesbian, based on a true story about a billionaire trying to find a man to marry his gay daughter.



The sun is prompting you to enjoy romantic dreams, which may become realities. Keeping promises may prove hard to do, but you must try. The test of a relationship is not just in sticking to your obligations, but forgiving the broken ones.


LIBRA  Sep 23-Oct 22
A creative partnership with a new person may be more enduring than expected. Romantic consequences are possible but
demand more work. Heartfelt discussions help to clarify illusions.

SCORPIO  Oct 23-Nov 21
Innovation is necessary, but if you get too clever, you’ll only exacerbate existing problems. Keep communications open. If you can’t be friendly, be tactful. Charm works.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22-Dec 20
Getting too comfortable with the wrong people tempts you to spill secrets. Focus on where you want to be in five years with the one you love. Follow that inspiration.

CAPRICORN  Dec 21-Jan 19
Have an appropriate outlet for your energy. The more you can sublimate it into your work the better, but be mindful of boundaries. What is more important: Your relationship or your career?

AQUARIUS  Jan 20-Feb 18
Roleplaying will open up insights into your relationship. Confusion in other dealings requires an intuitive approach. Defend your turf at work but kind words are more effective than harsh.

PISCES  Feb 19-Mar 19
Don’t prolong disagreements. The sooner you finish them, the sooner you can move on. Fantasy play is one way to be intimate with your partner. Sharing intimate thoughts is necessary.

ARIES  Mar 20-Apr 19
Playing too hard leads to injuries and/or confrontations. Don’t feel you have to annihilate your opponent — what about having some fun? Lighten up. Find your softer side before it’s too late.

TAURUS  Apr 20-May 20
Flirtations lead to something more serious, but take one step at a time. Even if it is a passing fancy, there’s no reason you can’t flirt back! Renegotiating loans and debts work in your favor.

GEMINI  May 21-Jun 20
Concern about your health or career make you defensive — don’t be a grouch! Telling others to mind their own business isn’t wrong, but must be handled with diplomacy.

CANCER  Jun 21-Jul 22
Attend to serious domestic issues before they overwhelm you (they are feeling that way already). Stop putting so much pressure on yourself. Structure and discipline slow you down.

LEO  Jul 23-Aug 22
Taking yourself too seriously annoys others and leads to stress in you. If you’re so smart, prove it by deferring to someone else’s wishes, or reading a book that will challenge you intellectually.

VIRGO  Aug 23-Sep 22
Conversations may lead to unexpected depths. Someone you’re attracted to may be ready to reciprocate. Raise the issue gingerly but be careful about how you read their reaction.
