Today's birthday (Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017) This year you will make a difference, no matter what project is on your mind. The unexpected takes a bigger role and often adds some confusion to your year. If you are single, you could meet someone enchanting. This person could appear at any time, and you will know when you have met him or her. If you are attached, your significant other is a cheerleader of your ideas. The two of you are likely to strengthen your bond as a result. Pisces can be spiritual yet fun when interacting with you.
Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★ You might wake up with the best of intentions, but confusion somehow permeates the day. If you maintain a sense of humor, others could see you smile your way through any obstacle that emerges. Don’t lose focus of your objective. Tonight: Say little, and be a better listener.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ Emphasize your long-term objectives. Though you might have difficulty verbalizing what you want, you won’t lose focus of your long-term goals. A friend could help you achieve much more of what you want, as long as you are willing to share more. Tonight: Where the fun is.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ You might want to take another look at your long-term goals. You could feel it is difficult to fulfill your objectives with so much vagueness surrounding you. A misunderstanding is likely to throw you off your game. Try to ask pertinent questions. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Avoid getting too caught up in the moment and what is happening. Confusion surrounds a personal matter or a discussion, and you might feel as if no one is really listening to you. You could have difficulty focusing. Tonight: Reach out to a dear friend at a distance.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ A loved one could create a haze around him– or herself. Know that this person is not being intentionally evasive or vague; he or she might be dealing with a situation that is causing him or her to be emotionally unavailable. Pull back for now. Tonight: Connect with a dear friend.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Deal with others directly. Though there might be a confusing moment or two, you will finally connect with a dear friend. This achievement will be a relief, as you will be able to have a discussion that you have been patiently waiting for. Tonight: Let the other party open up.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ You could be more connected to others than you have been in a while. As a result, despite an impending sense of confusion, you’ll find the right path to achieve your goals. Let a misunderstanding dwindle and become less important. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Your creativity emerges when dealing with a new friend. You might feel as if you have the ability to work through almost any problem. You could feel torn between a joining a loved one and visiting with a friend. Weigh the pros and cons, then decide. Tonight: Happiest at home.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★ You might have decided to veer in a new direction, but somehow you keep getting tripped up over last-minute details. You will be happiest in the long run once you finally connect with a child or loved one. Listen to news with a touch of cynicism. Tonight: Togetherness is the theme.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ You have the ability to soothe others’ moods and make them feel better. You might decide to cocoon at home if you feel as if you don’t want to share as much with others. In any case, no matter how you get through your day, the results will be excellent. Tonight: Live it up.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★ Be aware of your budget. You easily could go overboard and create more stress for yourself. You know what you want, and could become very attached to a person who is important to you. Recognize that you also might be a bit possessive. Tonight: Treat a friend to dinner.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★★ You are personality plus. Listen to your sixth sense when following through on a key matter. You might see a big difference in what goes on if you don’t allow yourself to be distracted. Remain an observer rather than try to be a player. Tonight: Dance the night away!
