HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 5, 2012: This year you frequently look at the big picture, and you’ll make better decisions. Curb a tendency to overdo things or to overindulge yourself. If single, you will want to meet Mr. or Ms. Right Now. Be open. If attached, sometimes you are too caught up in your own feelings, and you lose your self-discipline. Learn to let go, and you will have a great time together. Aries is very impulsive. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Pisces if born before 1:59 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Aries.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • Handle a personal matter in the morning. This issue could involve a parent or elder. By midday, your energy will soar.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • You know what you want and clearly have a chosen direction. Accomplish key matters in the morning. Meet with family members or friends for a late brunch or movie.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Your presence could be far more pivotal than you realize. How you see a situation could change after you hear more feedback from other interested parties.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Touch base with someone at a distance. Exchanging news will make you feel as if you are in the same town. Make plans to get together in the near future.
