The Hamilton Spectator - - FUN & GAMES - BY JACQUELINE BI­GAR

HAPPY BIRTH­DAY for Satur­day, Aug. 12, 2017:

This year you have an op­por­tu­nity to ex­press your unique­ness. Many dif­fer­ent peo­ple and sit­u­a­tions could ap­pear from out of the blue. You have a warm way of ex­press­ing your­self that at­tracts many peo­ple. If you are sin­gle, this trait works won­ders for your so­cial life. Know how im­por­tant it is to iden­tify whether you want a re­la­tion­ship or would pre­fer to keep your dat­ing life light and easy. If you are at­tached, the two of you en­joy a fun pe­riod to­gether. How much your sig­nif­i­cant other chooses to be in­volved in your di­verse in­ter­ests will be his or her call. ARIES knows how to trig­ger you.

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 have an abun­dant amount of en­ergy. Visit with loved ones, and make time for con­ver­sa­tions that day-to-day life does not per­mit. Make plans to meet some rowdy friends in the evening. Wher­ever you are, you are likely to have a great time. Tonight: En­joy those around you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

+++ You might feel as if there is a lot you can’t say. You could be cor­rect in hold­ing back. A cer­tain amount of tu­mul­tuous­ness sur­rounds you. Know that this con­fu­sion could cause a mis­un­der­stand­ing. A lit­tle car­ing goes a long way. Tonight: En­joy din­ner with a spe­cial friend. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ++++ Let oth­ers in on your think­ing and plans. You will be hap­pi­est

with friends or off ful­fill­ing a longterm de­sire. Your abil­ity to cre­ate more ro­mance and/or amuse­ment in your life emerges. A loved one might be a bit down. Tonight: Act as if there were no to­mor­row. CAN­CER (June 21-July 22)

+++ You could be more will­ing to take a risk, even if you are not to­tally sure you want to head down that path. Ob­serve a flash­ing yel­low light when it comes to your spend­ing. You might want to pur­chase an item, but first weigh the pros and cons. Tonight: Oth­ers ap­pre­ci­ate your pres­ence. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

++++ Take an overview of a sit­u­a­tion, and de­tach from an im­me­di­ate de­sire to get in­volved. Look at the long-term ram­i­fi­ca­tions of be­ing im­pul­sive. Be­ing more un­der­stand­ing works best. You can­not sup­press

your ad­ven­tur­ous mood. Tonight: Go where great mu­sic can be heard. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

+++++ One-on-one re­lat­ing elic­its a strong re­ac­tion and could be a prob­lem. You might be prone to be­com­ing crit­i­cal and fussy. Try not to al­low a mis­un­der­stand­ing to get even big­ger. You might find that it takes months to mend this sep­a­ra­tion. Tonight: Al­low oth­ers to dom­i­nate. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

+++ You will want to lis­ten to what oth­ers are shar­ing. Even if you dis­agree, you still need to open your ears. Be aware of oth­ers’ views and judg­ments. Your high op­ti­mism al­lows you to get past a prob­lem and kick back. You help lighten oth­ers’ moods. Tonight: Be spon­ta­neous. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ++++ Touch base with friends and

loved ones if you de­cide to make plans. An un­usual sit­u­a­tion could de­velop into a mis­un­der­stand­ing. Be sen­si­tive to a friend’s needs. Do a bet­ter job of lis­ten­ing, this per­son will trust you more. Tonight: Out un­til you are too tired to en­joy your­self. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

++++ You might feel that it is im­por­tant to re­main sen­si­tive to oth­ers. A loved one or a higher-up could be frag­ile and not even re­al­ize it. A mis­un­der­stand­ing is likely to de­velop from out of nowhere. It is all you can do to keep a lid on your re­ac­tion. Tonight: Sort through the pos­si­bil­i­ties. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

+++ Don’t al­low a loved one’s mood to edge you into a re­ac­tion. You know when enough is enough, though this per­son might not. Stay close to home. News from

a dis­tance could be a prob­lem, as a mis­un­der­stand­ing seems to be en­trenched in its mes­sage. Tonight: Out late. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

++++ Your words could start a com­mo­tion if you are not care­ful. You might not ex­pect such a re­ac­tion, as you are sim­ply be­ing your­self. A loved one is likely to take a stand, which will set off a round of dis­agree­ments. TTonight: Where the ac­tion is. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

+++ You might want to de­fer any so­cial plan­ning to some­one else for now. You could sense that you are walk­ing right into a dis­agree­ment with a friend or loved one. How you han­dle your­self will de­ter­mine the tone of the next few days, if not weeks. Tonight: Avoid a grumpy play­mate!
