HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012: This year you could feel everything intensely – more than you have in a long time. You also might tend to get angry far more easily. You might be dealing with a low-level depression. If so, make a point to see the appropriate person for help. Why carry around extra baggage if you don’t need to? If single, screen the people you meet and take your time getting to know a potential suitor. Remember, time is your ally. If attached, the two of you need private time as a couple. CANCER makes a good healer for you. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Cancer if born before 11:05 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Leo.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Deal with a personal matter. You easily could be overwhelmed by what is on your plate. A partner or close loved one could become withdrawn.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Important communication needs to take place in the morning. In the afternoon, you’ll want to concentrate and could close the door if you are at the office.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Make sure you stay on top of your finances. They could go up and down rather quickly right now.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You flourish in the morning. You might even want to take off in the afternoon and do some shopping.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You feel empowered by midafternoon, though you might have had several difficult and challenging people to deal with prior to that.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Use the daylight hours to the max. Be careful with your anger – it could cause you to overspend or overindulge right now.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You could be oversensitive or difficult, even into the afternoon. You might not realize that you are testing your limits.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Make an important call in the morning. What you did not count on is a brainstorming session emerging from an obstacle you encounter.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • A close friend, loved one or associate demands a lot of your time and attention.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Others seek you out in the morning. You might have a grumpy response like “I’m busy.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Throw yourself into your daily routine, and focus on clearing out as much as possible. By midday, others will seek you out, one after the other.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Your imagination assumes the lead, no matter what you do this morning. Maintain a sense of humor.
