The Washington Post Sunday - - DIVERSIONS - BY JACQUELINE BIGAR

HAPPY BIRTHDAY | July 16: This year you’ll want to get plenty of ex­er­cise to work through stress and min­i­mize ten­sion. Prac­tice sup­port­ing your­self more of­ten. If you are sin­gle, you could meet some­one at work, at the bank or maybe even at the gym. You prob­a­bly will meet this per­son some­time af­ter sum­mer. If you are at­tached, the two of you de­cide to par­tic­i­pate in a new ac­tiv­ity that will help you both re­lax. Aries proves to be provoca­tive when brain­storm­ing.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) An older friend or rel­a­tive is likely to get un­der your skin. Pres­sure builds to es­tab­lish more de­fined bound­aries. You might not be able to get past an ob­sta­cle or some kind of re­sis­tance at the mo­ment, but even­tu­ally you will.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You know that you are not get­ting the full story. Some­one you care about pulls you away from a loved one who might be up­set. Try to put a halt on this sit­u­a­tion be­fore it af­fects your re­la­tion­ship.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You fi­nally could be let­ting loose and en­joy­ing this part of the weekend. Your frus­tra­tion might emerge when vis­it­ing with a friend who can be a bit rigid. The smart play is to post­pone plans, es­pe­cially if you feel your volatil­ity eas­ily emerg­ing.

CAN­CER (June 21-July 22) Ac­cept an in­vi­ta­tion to join oth­ers for brunch at a fa­vorite spot. You might not be­lieve how much fun you’ll have. You’ll prob­a­bly want to make this type of event a reg­u­lar hap­pen­ing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You have the ca­pac­ity to em­brace very dif­fer­ent scenes. Open up to an ad­ven­ture that is ex­cit­ing and new. As a re­sult, your mind will be ex­posed to unique ideas.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) De­fer to some­one who clearly wants to be in con­trol. You will find that you are ca­pa­ble of ad­just­ing to a provoca­tive sit­u­a­tion. One-on-one re­lat­ing can be very sat­is­fy­ing be­cause of your so­cial skills.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Lis­ten to what is be­ing shared by a strong-willed part­ner. Rec­og­nize that this per­son is re­flect­ing their own in­ner ten­sion. Reach out to some­one at a dis­tance who is con­tro­ver­sial yet al­ways makes you laugh.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You could be on edge bal­anc­ing a lot of dif­fer­ent needs, in­clud­ing your own. Stay cool, and don’t lose your tem­per; oth­er­wise, you will have oth­ers run­ning away from you. A loved one also might be han­dling an is­sue re­gard­ing your joint fi­nances.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You come up with un­usual but rel­e­vant so­lu­tions. Are you will­ing to try one out? You ac­tu­ally could be de­lighted by the re­sults. In any case, the will­ing­ness to take a risk and be open is what counts.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Don’t get locked in to rigid think­ing, which could be a li­a­bil­ity for you. Be more will­ing to get in­volved in an ac­tiv­ity with which you have lit­tle ex­per­tise. Re­main open to ex­per­i­men­ta­tion. Take up a new hobby.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Make calls and see what your friends are up to. You might de­cide to join a loved one on a fun ad­ven­ture, but per­haps you would pre­fer be­ing in a group set­ting. What is wrong with try­ing to squeeze in both?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might have de­cided to treat a friend to a spe­cial day. Some of you will in­dulge your love of shop­ping, whereas oth­ers can be found at an amuse­ment or wa­ter park. You will be over-the-moon happy when you fi­nally get to do what you love.
