The Denver Post - - FEATURES - By Jac­que­line Bi­gar

To­day's birthday (Thursday, Aug. 3, 2017) This year you will want to blaze your own trail. Your em­pha­sis will be on chil­dren, love and cre­ative pur­suits. The un­ex­pected marks events and de­ci­sions. Your flex­i­bil­ity could make or break your year. If you are sin­gle, you won’t want to say “no” to a ro­man­tic pos­si­bil­ity. How­ever, be sure not to rush this bond into a com­mit­ment; in­stead, just en­joy every mo­ment. If you are at­tached, the two of you will rekin­dle the fire that ex­ists between you. A new ad­di­tion could be pos­si­ble. Capricorn plays a ma­jor role in your year.

Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★ You could feel as if there is a dif­fer­ent in­flu­ence around you to­day. You might be mak­ing de­ci­sions that you have been putting off for a long time. Don’t be sur­prised if you change your mind again later and opt to head down an even more un­ex­pected path. Tonight: Out late.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ You could be in a sit­u­a­tion where you feel you have the proper amount of con­trol. You might be ne­go­ti­at­ing a fi­nan­cial agree­ment, try­ing to hit the lot­tery or some vari­a­tion on the mon­ey­mak­ing theme. Try not to go to ex­tremes. Tonight: Swap news with a loved one.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Reach out to a loved one or special friend. You might need to air out some griev­ances you’ve been hold­ing on to. You’ll ap­pre­ci­ate this per­son’s feed­back. Don’t be sur­prised if you get some strong re­ac­tions to what is be­ing shared. Tonight: Go along with a sug­ges­tion.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ You have a strong sense of di­rec­tion, and you know what you want. You see a sit­u­a­tion much dif­fer­ently from how oth­ers see it. A boss or friend seems to want to shake up the sta­tus quo. Be will­ing to take a stand, if need be. Tonight: Re­mem­ber, noth­ing is writ­ten in stone.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Your vi­sion of what to do dur­ing the day seems to please those around you. Brace your­self for some unan­tic­i­pated de­vel­op­ments. You might be won­der­ing what would be the best way to cre­ate a pos­i­tive re­sult. Lis­ten to your gut and fol­low your whims. Tonight: Run some er­rands.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ You might won­der which way to go when han­dling a volatile sit­u­a­tion that seems dif­fi­cult to sta­bi­lize. The un­ex­pected runs through your plans. Un­der­stand what is mo­ti­vat­ing a fam­ily mem­ber to be so un­pre­dictable; ob­serve rather than judge. Tonight: Opt for to­geth­er­ness.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★★ You might not be in the po­si­tion to make a judg­ment at the present mo­ment. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion could be over­whelm­ing, but you’ll man­age to nav­i­gate it ef­fec­tively. A key per­son in your life is likely to sur­prise you with his or her words. Tonight: Think “week­end.”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ You still might think that you have some con­trol over a daily work sit­u­a­tion, but you are likely to be proven wrong. You could wit­ness a back­fire of some sort, an un­ex­pected de­vel­op­ment might emerge. Main­tain a sense of hu­mor. Tonight: Visit with a dear friend.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★★ You are bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to­day. Go for what you want, but if the un­ex­pected pops up, step back and look at the sit­u­a­tion dif­fer­ently. You might need to let go of a mat­ter or head in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion. You are free to blaze a new trail. Tonight: Make it your treat.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★★ You might want to head in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion from the ma­jor­ity of those around you. As a re­sult, you could be sur­prised by what hap­pens. The un­ex­pected plays a heavy role in what takes place. A fam­ily mem­ber is likely to cre­ate some up­roar. Tonight: Be spon­ta­neous.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ Rec­og­nize that you are head­ing down a path that could elicit some strong re­ac­tions. Free your­self from the sta­tus quo. You might have some un­ex­pected changes on the way. Do not close down or pre­tend that it is business as usual. Go with the mo­ment. Tonight: Catch some zzz’s.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ You will take the lead and breeze past some enor­mous changes. In fact, be­cause of some fi­nan­cial ups and downs, you might even want to head in a new di­rec­tion. Open up to that pos­si­bil­ity, and dis­cuss it with a friend. Lis­ten to his or her feed­back. Tonight: With friends. The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5 Dy­namic; 4 Pos­i­tive; 3 Av­er­age; 2 So-so; 1 Dif­fi­cult.
