HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Aug. 6, 2011: This year, you might believe you are being clear, but you will be giving mixed signals. Ask trusted friends or family members if perhaps your body language doesn’t match your message. If single, you could meet someone through family or close to your home. If attached, the two of you probably will see the communication issue just mentioned rear its ugly head. Scorpio can pressure you. A baby born today has a Sun in Leo and a Moon in Scorpio.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Deal directly with issues that surround a key partnership. The discussion could go from trying to resolve a disagreement to deciding as a team your next step.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Others prove to be challenging because they are so determined to have matters tumble the way they want. You might see that you are spreading yourself thin.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You might do the unthinkable … work on a project rather than socialize. Don’t let someone’s question throw you. You know what is good for you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Amid everything that is happening, you might be wondering if you need to cancel some plans. Give 125 percent to whatever you do, and you will have your answer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Just as you are ready to take off and soar, you discover that a family member or roommate needs something.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Your ability to communicate crosses a barrier. You have an opportunity to heal a relationship, if you so choose. Don’t take people’s comments personally.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • A friend might be trying very hard to point you in the correct direction. Do remember that what is right for you might not be right for this person, and vice versa.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • You might be all smiles. Pressure could be building where you least expect it. Listen to news more openly. Don’t allow a judgment to cloud your thinking.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • You might want to project yourself differently than a friend. You also might want to make plans independently. Honor your needs, but also expect a bit of a backlash.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Find the crowds and find your friends. Single Goats might discover just how interested someone is by his or her possessiveness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Others often follow your lead. Right now, the same people could reverse their direction out of the blue. You wonder what is going on.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Keep reaching for more of what you desire. Listen to news with an open mind. Following the now-possible path could be very exciting yet problematic in some way.
