To­day's birth­day (Tues­day, Aug. 8, 2017) This year you find that there is an el­e­ment of un­pre­dictabil­ity in your life. Your at­ti­tude about these spon­ta­neous hap­pen­ings will lead to un­usual in­sights that could de­fine your year. The more open you are, the more suc­cess­ful you will be. If you are sin­gle, you will date sev­eral dif­fer­ent peo­ple. You might feel as if there is a psy­chic con­nec­tion be­tween you and the per­son you choose to get close to. If you are at­tached, the two of you open up to new pos­si­bil­i­ties. As a re­sult, you find that your life to­gether gets even more ex­cit­ing. Pisces in­spires you to day­dream more.

Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ It’s busi­ness as usual af­ter yes­ter­day’s lu­nar eclipse. You might feel as if you can take in a breath of fresh air. Know that you could have a strong re­ac­tion to what you hear mid­day. The more calm and cen­tered you are, the bet­ter the out­come will be. Tonight: Share news.

Tau­rus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ You are more in con­trol of a work sit­u­a­tion than you re­al­ize. Others look to you to take the lead. You might not want to take the reins, but you’ll step up to the plate re­gard­less. A se­ri­ous con­ver­sa­tion with a loved one could have a sur­pris­ing out­come. Tonight: Where the fun is.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 20) ★★★ Reach out to some­one at a dis­tance, or to an ex­pert who can help you un­der­stand where some­one else is com­ing from. You’ll need to set aside your bi­ases be­fore you can ac­cept a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive and/or iden­tify with other points of view. Tonight: A must ap­pear­ance.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ One-on-one re­lat­ing elic­its strong re­sults. You might be able to make a change that has been on the back burner for a while. A boss could act in a most un­ex­pected way. Can you deal with this per­son’s un­pre­dictabil­ity? Dis­tance your­self if need be. Tonight: Es­cape into the night.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ To­day could de­mand a lot of fo­cus in var­i­ous ar­eas of your life. You will see a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive when you deal with a cre­ative project. You might be hold­ing your­self back. Sur­pris­ing news is likely to in­vig­o­rate you. Tonight: Spend qual­ity time with a loved one.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★ Be aware of what is go­ing on in your mind. You might de­cide to fo­cus on each item or project separately. Later in the day, sched­ule your meet­ings. De­fer to others in this sit­u­a­tion, and you will gain a lot of wis­dom and knowl­edge as a re­sult. Tonight: The only an­swer is “yes.”

Li­bra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Your play­ful­ness could lighten up some­one’s mood in the morn­ing, but by midafter­noon, your fo­cus changes. You have a lot on your plate. You might want to de­fer to some­one else. Know when you have had enough or need to head in a new di­rec­tion. Tonight: Run er­rands.

Scor­pio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★ Get­ting past a per­sonal is­sue or a do­mes­tic mat­ter could be try­ing. Ex­penses seem to be at the core of the prob­lem. Al­low more open­ness, and en­cour­age more shar­ing. An­other per­son’s idea will prove to be more help­ful than you had orig­i­nally thought. Tonight: Live for the mo­ment.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★ You might be in the po­si­tion of hav­ing to con­vince others of how right one of your ideas is. You could be con­fused by an­other party’s un­pre­dictabil­ity. Do not at­tempt to box this per­son in; in­stead, go along with his or her spon­tane­ity. Em­brace the mo­ment. Tonight: Make it early.

Capri­corn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ Be aware of your spend­ing lim­its when han­dling your funds. You might have opted to take a risk, but per­haps you are get­ting cold feet at the last minute. You can choose to worry or to let it go, but the call is yours to make. Tonight: Hang out with a close friend at a fa­vorite spot.

Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ Go for more of what you want. You have been fo­cused on a ma­jor is­sue for a while. A friend can’t seem to let go of his or her neg­a­tiv­ity. Try to lis­ten to this per­son’s feed­back with­out in­ter­nal­iz­ing it. Weigh the pros and cons of an ex­pen­di­ture later in the day. Tonight: All smiles.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ You could be weigh­ing the pros and cons of han­dling a per­sonal mat­ter dif­fer­ently from how you have in the past. You could be taken aback by an older rel­a­tive who ex­presses a very con­ser­va­tive point of view. Open up to new pos­si­bil­i­ties later in the day. Tonight: As you like it. The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5 Dy­namic; 4 Pos­i­tive; 3 Av­er­age; 2 So-so; 1 Dif­fi­cult.
