HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012: This year you might want to spend more time alone. You also might choose to reveal less of yourself than in the past. You might become involved in some self-healing work. You are changing in many ways and demanding more of yourself. If single, you easily become involved with an emotionally distant person. If attached, the two of you benefit by scheduling more time together as a couple. You will add more romance to your bond. Cancer understands you well, maybe even better than you do. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Cancer all day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Pressure builds with matters involving real estate and family. You simply cannot juggle everything that keeps landing on your plate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You tend to say what you think and tell it as it is. You might not always be met with agreement from others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Curb an innate insecurity that frequently rears its ugly head. This personality trait can be extremely offensive to you, as well as to others.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You are on cruise control, with your magnetism peaking. You know what you want, and you make good choices accordingly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Take a backseat, whether you’re at home or at work. This role might not be natural for you, but it is necessary. Take this time to realize what is happening around you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You put emphasis on success, networking and expanding your circle of friends. You will see a child or new friend make a demand.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • Others look to you for answers and resolution. You might not have the right solutions at this moment, but you certainly are capable of finding them.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • Keep reaching out for someone at a distance. This person likely has important information, if not helpful feedback. Someone pushes you toward his or her chosen direction.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • You find that you are compatible with one particular person. For many of you, it will be your pleasure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Defer to others, as there seems to be little room for your ideas at the present moment. Eventually there will be, especially if you do not force your presence on others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Your determination is impressive, though you easily could get distracted by others and their needs. Your ability to concentrate comes through once more.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Tap into your imagination for answers. Your unusual creativity comes through more often than not.
