HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2011: If one looks at the end results of this coming year, one would have to say you will have a very fortunate year, with promotions and greater visibility. If single, don’t make a commitment this year; wait until June 2012. If attached, the two of you become more visible as a couple. Aries can be more fiery than you. A baby born today has a Sun in Leo and a Moon in Aries.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • “Mellow” might be the way you want to handle yourself. Somehow, an unanticipated situation triggers you. Whether you or someone else demonstrates anger makes no difference.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • Know when to retreat. The smart Bull will detach and go his or her own way rather than get involved in another person’s dramatic display of upset.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You fare well in a volatile environment. You are OK dealing with many different points of view. Flex with concepts. Don’t play into another person’s negativity.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You might be taken aback by someone’s display of fireworks. Your reaction could be so strong, you might have difficulty not responding.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Test your ability to read between the lines. You could be quite frustrated dealing with someone at a distance who seems to be determined to upset the apple cart.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Deal directly with a partner who might be vested in having his or her way. Rather than fight city hall, go it alone. This person could test your relationship with him or her.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • You could be stressed out by what is going on. You might feel out of whack dealing with the unpredictability of others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Pace yourself, recognizing just how much you have to do. Welcome any shortcuts, but end any unexpected interference. You have a lot of ground to cover.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • You easily could be stressed about everything that you have to do in order to accomplish certain key goals. Others seem disruptive and/or difficult.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Stay centered, knowing full well what you want and what you can expect. Family, an investment and security score as major priorities.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You are likely to say what you want. You might wonder what is happening within a friendship. Can you make a dent or impression with this person?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You can make waves in your immediate circle, but do you really want to? The reaction could be difficult to handle, at best.
