The Washington Post Sunday - - DIVERSIONS - BY JAC­QUE­LINE BI­GAR

HAPPY BIRTH­DAY | Aug. 6: This year, you are very aware of oth­ers’ roles in your life. Those around you find you to be mag­netic but not al­ways ap­proach­able. You can be very warm and open at times, yet re­mote and closed down at other times. If you are sin­gle, these mood swings could af­fect a bud­ding re­la­tion­ship. If you are at­tached, the two of you could have a very ex­cit­ing year. Learn to re­spect your dif­fer­ent val­ues and per­spec­tives, and you’ll both be a lot hap­pier. Aquar­ius val­ues you as a friend.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You feel more up­beat and less pres­sured than you have in a long time. If some­one dares to chal­lenge you or stress you out in any way, you are likely to set them straight. Go off and en­joy a fa­vorite sport or ac­tiv­ity. TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20) You might be a lit­tle too or­ga­nized and re­spon­si­ble to flee the scene to­day and sim­ply have a good time. Be a lit­tle self-in­dul­gent. A fam­ily mem­ber could be very de­mand­ing. Just go with the flow. Don’t get boxed into do­ing some­thing you don’t want to do.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You have been try­ing to gain a fresh per­spec­tive on an im­por­tant mat­ter that might have se­ri­ous im­pli­ca­tions for your life. You are quick to get an­gry if you feel pushed. Step away from the sit­u­a­tion and go see a movie. CAN­CER (June 21-July 22) You seem to be at the point where you want to head in a new di­rec­tion. You might want to make a ma­jor pur­chase that could change your life for the bet­ter. Your will­ing­ness to work with a loved one makes to­day more pleas­ant. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You feel en­er­getic. The real is­sue is how you ex­press this high en­ergy. You might pick a fight, or per­haps you’ll opt to go to the gym. Be care­ful, as you could be­come sar­cas­tic, as well.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You will make a dif­fer­ence where it counts. If you no­tice that you sud­denly be­come irate and dif­fi­cult, ask yourself what is go­ing on within.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You have a vivid sense of hu­mor, which could emerge at any mo­ment. When play­ing with a child, you’ll have fun role-play­ing or mak­ing up a new game. With friends and fam­ily, funny sce­nar­ios are likely to pop up. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might ex­pe­ri­ence a lot of ten­sion as you at­tempt to re­lax at home. Fig­ure out the source of your stress, and then elim­i­nate it. This ac­tion could be as easy as giv­ing up a judg­ment you are mak­ing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Don’t hold back, but do in­dulge in some diplo­macy. You will come out a sure­fire win­ner, and the other par­ties in­volved will ap­pre­ci­ate your sen­si­tiv­ity and open­ness. CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might not al­ways agree with a part­ner or loved one, and to­day is no ex­cep­tion. Don’t let the sit­u­a­tion es­ca­late; in­stead, find another means to the same end. AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You could be full of en­ergy. In­vite a friend out for a fun hap­pen­ing and a meal. Get­ting away from the here and now per­mits additional bond­ing to oc­cur. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You will want to run some er­rands or com­plete a project. You might want to make the up­com­ing work­week eas­ier on yourself. Why not sched­ule a mas­sage as well? Oth­ers will want you to join them, but give yourself per­mis­sion to say no.
