HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 22, 2010: This year, you reach out for new information and different solutions. If attached, your willingness to grow and evolve to a new level could challenge a partner. If single, you will have a bevy of friends and potential suitors. You just might not be ready to commit. Enjoy the social whirl. Aquarius comes through for you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Friends surround you. You can forget any leisurely downtime with the Sunday paper. A loved one contributes to the mood of the moment. Go with the unexpected.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Step right up. Whether it is bringing friends and family together or handling a situation differently, you are in the limelight.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • If you haven’t taken off already, you just might hop in the car. A change of pace recharges your batteries and helps you detach.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Deal directly with a loved one and/or friend. If you choose a quiet spot for a conversation, the end result will be better.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Defer to those around you. Your conversation with a partner or close friend could be difficult at first but is worthwhile.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Stay on top of a project, though someone easily could entice you to take off for brunch or a get-together. A partner could be surprising in his or her ideas or actions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Others think of you as sedate and charming. Let go and enjoy yourself. Worry less about what others think – a Libra trait – and let your playful side emerge.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • You might want to stay close to home. Invite family over for an early dinner, or perhaps ask for help on a project. Reveal your inner thoughts with a family member.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Make calls to loved ones. Make plans, even if you hadn’t intended to get together. You discover that in a crowd you relax more than you thought possible.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Be aware of the costs of taking an older friend or relative out or inviting others over. You alone know what works best for you – not only financially but also in other areas.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Allow greater give-and-take between you and others. Sometimes, perhaps not intentionally, you cut yourself off.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • You need a break. You need a timeout. No one can say otherwise, as no one lives in your skin. Structure your day with the knowledge that you cannot afford not to take a break.
