The Washington Post Sunday - - DIVERSIONS - BY JACQUE­LINE BI­GAR

HAPPY BIRTH­DAY | Aug. 13: This year you will be more fired up than you have been in years. Once you get an idea in your mind, it will be al­most im­pos­si­ble to stop you from pur­su­ing it. If you are sin­gle, you have the mag­netic en­ergy to draw oth­ers to you. You do not have a lot of free time, so choose the per­son whom you would most en­joy be­ing with. If you are at­tached, you can’t seem to em­pha­size the im­por­tance of this re­la­tion­ship enough. Dote on your sweetie more of­ten. Tau­rus is very de­mand­ing, but can be im­por­tant to you pro­fes­sion­ally. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You could sur­prise oth­ers with a change of mind, though the course you have cho­sen to head down right now might not be eas­ily changed. A loved one seems a bit de­pressed and just wants to avoid so­cial­iz­ing. Do not push this per­son.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20) You might won­der whether you have made enough of an ef­fort to­ward a part­ner or a close loved one who of­ten seems overly se­ri­ous. This per­son lights up when you are around. GEM­INI (May 21-June 20) You might feel as if you have pushed too hard to get cer­tain re­sults. Be care­ful, as you could ex­pe­ri­ence a back­fire. Pull back for the mo­ment, and you will feel much bet­ter. In­dulge your­self for the day. CAN­CER (June 21-July 22) Em­pha­size what is im­por­tant to you, and don’t al­low your­self to be dis­tracted. You could worry about ac­com­plish­ing ev­ery­thing that you want to get done. You will find a way to com­plete your tasks and still have time for friends. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could be pushed beyond your nor­mal lim­its. Some of you will have to check in on an older friend or rel­a­tive who might not be as ju­bi­lant or up­beat as they would like to be. Ac­cept this role for now, and know that it could rapidly change. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) De­tach and look at the big pic­ture be­fore you make a de­ter­mi­na­tion as to which way you want to go. Keep smil­ing and stay present in the mo­ment. You will have an op­por­tu­nity to take off and be part of an ad­ven­ture. LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You have an un­usual way of ex­press­ing your­self to a key per­son in your life. You like the spe­cial­ness of your com­mu­ni­ca­tions. Oth­ers might not pick up on the unique bond that ex­ists be­tween you. SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might feel roped in by cer­tain con­straints, but you’ll be able to break through them de­spite some mi­nor has­sles. Al­low your­self to ex­press the party an­i­mal that lies within you. SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You could be ready for a fast change of pace. How­ever, you might won­der what is hold­ing you back from just leap­ing right into a per­sonal sit­u­a­tion. Make calls and catch up on news with those at a dis­tance. CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) In­ves­ti­gate an op­por­tu­nity to change plans or head in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion. Some­one could be very dis­ap­pointed and not ready to deal with this change. As a re­sult, it might be eas­ier to keep your plans as they are.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A take-charge at­ti­tude is un­usual for you, but you are likely to em­brace that role at home. You want to open up to more fun, but for per­sonal rea­sons, you might not be able to. Make sure you take an ex­tra day off in the next week just for you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Com­mu­ni­ca­tion flour­ishes and helps you un­der­stand a new per­spec­tive. You might not un­der­stand why you have been so re­sis­tant to this view. Worry less about your re­sis­tance, and en­joy the free­dom of the mo­ment.
