HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Aug. 24, 2012: This year you often will feel tense, as you have so much on your plate. You will demand a lot from yourself and want to deliver just that. Your family and home life evolve in importance. If single, you will increase the chances of forming a viable relationship by being more grounded. If attached, listen to what your partner says his or her intentions are, rather than just going off of your ideas of what they are. Sagittarius is too strong of a personality for you. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Scorpio if born before 3:50 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Sagittarius.
