PISCES: August 20-27 Wednesday, August 27
If you go to an American doctor to be treated for an ailment, odds are he or she will interrupt you no more than 14 seconds into your description of what’s wrong. Do not tolerate this kind of disrespect in the days ahead – not from doctors or anyone.

“The thorn arms the roses,” goes an old Latin motto. Astrological omens suggest you’ll be wise to muse on that in the weeks ahead. How should you interpret it? Draw your own conclusions.
CAPRICORN: August 20-27 Wednesday, August 27
Your ethical code may soon be tested. What will you do if you see a chance to get away with a minor sin or petty crime no one will ever find out about? What if you’re tempted to lie, cheat or deceive to advance your good intentions and hurt others a little bit or not at all? Be honest about what’s really at stake.
