HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 6, 2012: This year you express unusual sensitivity and wisdom when dealing with different people and situations in your life. An element of surprise brings new insights that might force you to go past established boundaries. If single, you could meet someone significant through your friends. If attached, the two of you seem to be able to agree on goals. Being more visible and out and about together bonds you closer. Aries pushes you to explore and to say “yes” to adventure. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Aries all day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • You arrive on the scene energized and ready to take on a difficult situation. An impulsive action on your part throws others into chaos.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • You might want to withdraw yourself in order to appreciate and evaluate your feelings before you launch into any action.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Make hay while the sun shines. Know what you want and the direction you need to head in in order to get just that.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Take charge, and understand what needs to happen between you and others. One person appears to be quite difficult.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Your mind drifts so much that you could lose track of a conversation. You might find that an associate or friend could become very frustrated when dealing with you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Listen to news more openly before you and a partner or loved one decide what is best to do. On some level, you might feel as if you are riding a wave in uncharted waters.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You need to defer to others right now, as you are dealing with extremely willful people. Trying to manipulate them might not be worth it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You have the ability to see past the obvious and understand much more of what is going on. Changes could come out of nowhere.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You could be overwhelmed by a situation and the way it is going. Don’t fall into your usually controlling ways.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Return calls and schedule meetings; do not put off a certain meeting any longer. You cannot afford to lose any more time by being in limbo.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • Be aware of your limitations. Know your limits and which way to go with a personal matter. A friend could push you into a jam and wonder why you respond by distancing yourself.
