VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can resolve issues if you have a heart-to-heart talk with someone who understands the consequences of not taking care of a cause you believe in. Don't be afraid to suggest something unusual. Avoid an emotional meltdown.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Turn this into a goal-oriented day by embracing knowledge and honing your skills along with updating your résumé. Follow your own dream, not one someone else has chosen for you. Make alterations to partnerships that have the potential to hold you back.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take care of medical, financial, or legal issues. A problem with someone you are in or considering a partnership with should help you make a decision as to how you move forward. Don't let emotions override what you need to do.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Time spent with someone you love will bring about unforeseen changes to your relationship. Don't try to manipulate a situation that needs to play out without interference. Be responsible, but don't take over.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Engage in activities that challenge you, and you will feel rejuvenated. Express your feelings as well as your goals, and you will gain support and suggestions that will help you succeed. Favors will be granted, and what's owed to you will be repaid.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Personal issues will surface. You must weigh the pros and cons before you make impulsive moves that have a negative effect on what you are trying to accomplish. Talk matters over reasonably, and you will find a solution that works. Make love, not war.

Grocery Shopping:

• That moment when you get excited for a five for $10 coupon for frozen pizzas? That's when you know you're all grown up.

• Buying 40 Banquet meals because they are on sale? That's when you know you still have a long way to go.

• Nutrition is the last thing I consider when buying groceries. Price > convenience > "Do I really want to lug this up four flights of stairs?" > nutrition.

• Save time and money — shop exclusively from the promotional islands, end-caps, and the impulse items; the store knows what we, the consumers, want and need.

• Generally, generic brands are just as good as the name brands, but don't you DARE try to pass off Mountain Lightning as Mountain Dew to me. I can taste any impurities in my Dew, and I will seek out the nearest electronics to rid my mouth of the sacrilege.

• If you want to eat healthy and save money, don't shop hungry or full; shop hungover. You'll come out of the store with plenty of water, Gatorade, and hearty foods; you'll refrain from buying alcohol, fried anything, candy, or any variety of spicy Doritos.

• I love self-checkouts. There is something liberating about personally choosing which items you want to ring up.

• Why can't I buy strawberries and grapes individually like I can apples and onions? I'm tired of buying an entire pound of strawberries when I really need only two to make a provocative photo.
