HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2017: This year you will be more creative and open-minded than you have been in the recent past. You might opt to change direction, which could affect your life in many ways. Your imagination is in the process of enriching your life. If you are single, many people would like to be your sweetie, but whom will you choose? You need to ask yourself what you want in a relationship. If you are attached, this year could be memorable for you as a couple. Romance sizzles, and together you can create whatever you desire. Sagittarius is a hoot to be around.
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) You might be too spunky today for many people in your daily life. Spontaneous interactions occur around you. Check to see whether you and others are on the same page in order to avoid confusion.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Someone in your day-to-day environment has a lot of pep, and might be too blunt for your taste. On the other hand, there is no question about what his or her message is.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You could be upset by the lack of direction you are receiving from a partner. You might be gung-ho about an idea, whereas he or she seems confused. Give this person the time and space to see the wisdom of your choices. Be more carefree.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Pace yourself, and assess how much ground you have to cover. Understanding evolves to a new level, as long as you don’t go overboard trying to make your point. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your fiery side and fun personality emerge. You are ready to take a stand. Know that an associate might opt to challenge you. Your imagination intrigues a partner, and others seek you out. You could be overwhelmed by all the attention.
VIRGO (aug. 23-Sept. 22) Tension builds, which might slow you down as well as stress you out. A matter at home could make you feel out of sorts. You have a very inspiring person around you, so make time for a discussion.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Keep communication flowing. You might see a personal matter in a different light as a result of a recent discussion. Someone who is a part of your day-to-day life might add some confusion to the moment. You actually might enjoy the diversity.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You could be overwhelmed by a matter that has financial implications. You could see this issue differently from how many of those around you do. Know that your view counts more, as this issue is more likely to affect your funds than others’.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You could be overwhelmed by everything that is happening around you. You might not see a certain situation clearly, or perhaps you are confused by it. Work on understanding where others are coming from. As a result, you will know what to do. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Take your time and clarify what others are saying. Even after several conversations, you still might not be sure of where others are coming from. You’ll make a strong impression on people, especially someone who is in a position of authority. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Emphasize what is working for you. Others need to honour your bottom line. You might not be pleased by everything you hear; there could be a vagueness that makes you uncomfortable. Work on gaining greater clarity rather than settle for a semi-agreement.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Stay on top of what is happening. Your creativity naturally emerges. You might know that you have a great idea, but convincing others could be a problem. A loved one remains highly responsive to you, and others look to you for leadership.
