HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 12, 2012: This year you zero in on what you feel is important. As a result, you generally will succeed. Your fiery energy and serious attitude mix together well and carry you to a home run. If single, you will gain just by extending your horizons and meeting new people. If you are attached, the two of you need to spend more time with each other. Share your ideas and feelings, and the bond between you will only strengthen. Gemini points to the path of success. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Gemini all day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You need to state what you want and give others the time to respond. You might think they are overthinking things, but that’s just their style.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Be aware of how much you have to offer. Let others assume a more dominant role. You do not need to host every family dinner or always bring everyone together.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You are all smiles, as you are surrounded by many different people. You have many sides to you, and each one attracts a different type of personality.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • See what is going on among your friends. Once you do, you’ll understand why you need to pull back and take more of a break from others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • You have that special touch. No matter what you do, you enjoy yourself as long as you have your friends around you. Neighborhood affairs keep you busy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Deal with a responsibility involving an older friend or relative or perhaps even work. Take charge. Make time to bring family together.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Relate on a one-on-one level with those you come across, and make plans with a child or significant other. Listen to your instincts when reviewing a recent expenditure.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Defer to others, and go along for the ride. You might want to do something new or meet new people. Expand your universe, and take on a more serious attitude.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You have a project on the back burner, but right now you need to focus on an older friend or family member.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Your sense of mischief comes out, and others cannot help but want to join. Someone from a distance might be thrilled to hear from you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You are anchored and happily nested at home. Others might want to have you join them, but you probably will opt for a quiet day with family.
