HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Aug. 4, 2011: This year, you open up to a more easygoing lifestyle. You socialize and network a lot more. You enjoy being out and about. If single, you walk into a very exciting relationship. Get to know this person fully. If attached, your charm works wonders; you also need to give more of yourself. Libra opens up to you more than to others. A baby born today has a Sun in Leo and a Moon in Libra.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might want to defer in order to buy some time. Revisit a goal to see if it is still important to you. Chances are, you might need to revise your thinking.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You feel as if you can do no more. Truth be told, after a brisk walk or some other break, if you focus again, you will energize and find a solution.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Your creativity soars, but curb a tendency to spend or take a monetary risk. This act ultimately will backfire, though your optimism soars very high.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • You could be more frustrated than you are aware. You might want to head in a new direction or do something very differently. You also might overindulge.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Keep communication flowing. You might see a unique path. Someone who often has pulled the wool over your eyes appears once more. What do you really expect here?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might want to try a different way of dealing with funds. Still, you seem to be sorely tempted to spend, especially if the expense involves education, travel or music.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You could have nearly too much energy for your own good. How you dispel this unusual vitality could be important. As the hippies said: Make love, not war.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • Take a timeout, knowing it will be a very short one. Stretch and try to understand where someone is coming from. Lighten up with a family member who can get confused.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • A meeting sheds new light on a problem or situation. Still, there could be a distortion involved, whether you realize it or not.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You cannot escape notice, no matter how hard you try. This is the reverse side of being so responsible. A partner might be teasing you, trying to get you to loosen up.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Make an important call to that person you don’t see enough. Know what is happening behind the scenes at work or within a key group you are involved with.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Deal directly with a partner, associate or friend. Your instincts evolve into psychic ability. Still, you might need to verify what you are hearing.
