HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, July 28, 2016: This year you seek to improve how you communicate and express your feelings. You also become more concerned about your image. You might overspend when adding to your wardrobe. If you are single, meeting people will not be difficult. You might date several potential suitors before you find someone you are passionate enough about to want to commit to. If you are attached, the two of you often get involved in your community together. You also socialize and enjoy your friends to no end. Gemini delights you with his or her multidimensional personality.
The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Confusion is the natural order of the day. Others could become angry, as no one seems to be listening and/or understanding what anyone is saying. Avoid getting stuck in a difficult conversation. Postpone it, if possible.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You seem to be more levelheaded than many; however, you still try to listen and understand where others are coming from. You might be shaken by some confusion around your personal life. Keep money commitments on hold for now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Slow down in the morning. You could feel as if the world is working against you. What you can count on is getting a second wind later in the day. Someone could be a lot angrier than you realize; give this person some space!
CANCER ( June 21-July 22)
You could be tired and wondering what would be the best course of action to take. Others might not be receptive in a conversation. You could find that a good friend is being slightly irritating. Try not to lose your temper.
LEO ( July 23-Aug. 22)
Others might be unusually critical. You might want to avoid taking a course that will cause people to be more argumentative. Someone close to you expresses frustration with a personal issue; take the time to listen.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Reach out for more feedback from experts, especially if you don’t agree with someone else’s conclusion on a personal matter. Take charge and assume the lead only if you are sure of yourself. Do not push others away.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
One-on-one relating will get you better results. You tend to walk a more conservative path, although it becomes clear that a close associate is more adventurous than you are. Know that you will be able to handle what is heading your way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You could be overly tired and withdrawn as you seem to have difficulty relating to what is going on. You currently might find the pressure to be a little too much to handle. First try to detach rather than argue.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Use the morning for what you must get done. An unexpected element involving a child or a creative matter could distract you. Others seek you out, and you respond. Weigh the pros and cons before accepting an invitation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You seem to be serious-minded, but inside you could be laughing at what is occurring around you. You might be distracted by a personal matter involving a loved one. Curb a tendency to hold a grudge; you don’t want to hold on to negativity.
AQUARIUS ( Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Accomplishing what you must could feel overwhelming. You even might be tempted to throw out important papers or dispose of dirty dishes! Laughter will help you bypass any obstacles. A more upbeat mood will greet you in the afternoon.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Defer to a neighbour or sibling rather than have an argument. Before committing any funds to a project, balance your chequebook. You could have some unexpected expenses. A conversation opens up a door.
