The Washington Post Sunday - - DIVERSIONS - BY JAC­QUE­LINE BI­GAR

Happy Birth­day | July 30: This year, you cre­ate a lot of ex­cite­ment. As a re­sult, you open up emo­tion­ally and en­joy your­self more. There also is a side of you that is in­tense and se­cre­tive, which emerges once in a while in so­cial oc­ca­sions. If you are sin­gle, you could at­tract peo­ple who like one as­pect of your per­son­al­ity but not the other. Re­mem­ber that you need to be ac­cepted as a to­tal per­son — only then should you con­sider mak­ing a ma­jor com­mit­ment. If you are at­tached, the two of you might have a dif­fi­cult dy­namic at times, where you say one thing but do an­other. Scor­pio can­not help but be drawn to you, and vice versa.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Re­late to oth­ers di­rectly, but know that you might have a prob­lem deal­ing with your tem­per when speak­ing with a key fam­ily mem­ber. Your in­tu­ition helps you make a good choice about how to in­ter­act with this per­son.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20) De­fer to oth­ers. Ask ques­tions to come to a con­clu­sive un­der­stand­ing, if not an agree­ment. You might not have the same so­lu­tions, but you have the same is­sue. Re­spect your dif­fer­ences.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 20) You could be tired. Take to­day off for some ex­tra R and R. You need to honor your needs if you want to go full steam ahead more of­ten. A con­ver­sa­tion with a friend could be­come testy for some rea­son. Pull back be­fore you have an ar­gu­ment.

CAN­CER (June 21-July 22) Your imag­i­na­tion comes into play with a loved one. Let go of a prob­lem, and refuse to get into a squab­ble. Get into the mo­ment. A call or email from some­one at a dis­tance makes you smile. You might sense that more is go­ing on than was re­vealed.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could be in the mood to change di­rec­tion. Stay close to home, and in­vite a friend or two over for a late lunch. You might like not be­ing as much on the go as usual. A part­ner un­der­stands how you feel, so you don’t need to say much.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Speak your mind, but also lis­ten to what a loved one has to say. The more you share, the bet­ter your un­der­stand­ing of one an­other will be­come. You see a loved one as be­ing nearly per­fect. Be care­ful, as this per­son could fall off his or her pedestal.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Be aware of how pos­ses­sive you can be. You might want to ask your­self why you are so in­se­cure. On the other hand, this pos­ses­sive­ness also re­flects how much you value this per­son. Open up a dis­cus­sion and find your way through this is­sue.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Un­der­stand what is hap­pen­ing with a re­spected as­so­ciate. Lis­ten care­fully and help this per­son to gain a new per­spec­tive. Your in­ge­nu­ity and cre­ativ­ity come for­ward to solve a prob­lem and come up with so­lu­tions.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You could feel out of sorts and not un­der­stand what needs to hap­pen to change your mood. Per­haps it is your per­spec­tive mixed with a lit­tle in­se­cu­rity. Talk to a trusted fam­ily mem­ber who has known you his or her whole life and get some feed­back.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might be eas­ily drawn into a hap­pen­ing hosted by some friends. Whether it’s a cook­out or a soft­ball game, you’ll en­joy your­self and let go of stress. Try to keep this at­ti­tude go­ing as long as you can. A part­ner could be ar­gu­men­ta­tive.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Take charge and help oth­ers free them­selves up for a fun af­ter­noon out. The more re­laxed you are, the bet­ter next week will be. Oth­ers could be some­what ar­gu­men­ta­tive. Avoid hav­ing an ar­gu­ment or play­ing into some­one’s neg­a­tive mood.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Reach out to some­one at a dis­tance. You could be de­lighted by this per­son’s news. You might not know how to han­dle the in­for­ma­tion. Di­rect some of your frus­tra­tion into a phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity.
