HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 1, 2011: Don’t underestimate your capabilities. You often think your fussiness over details isn’t an asset. But it is. You can understand big concepts yet deal with the details. If single, you could attract someone quite interesting. If attached, once more, the two of you juggle the different roles involved in a union. VIRGO can be critical. A baby born today has their Sun in Leo. If born before 1:42 a.m. Pacific time, the baby has a Moon in Leo. Afterward, a Moon in Virgo.
