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.
