HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 26, 2012: This year you are grounded, yet you also are in touch with your creative side. What a nice mix. As a result, you’ll find solutions easily. If single, love often is on your mind. By your next birthday, you likely will find yourself involved in a significant relationship. If attached, the two of you act like new lovers. You also could have a new addition to your home or family. Capricorn is wise. Listen to this person. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Sagittarius if born before 6:58 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Capricorn.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • A responsibility requires your attention, though it could be quite pleasant. Follow your instincts; they probably are right-on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Keep reaching out for someone who can be flaky at times. A partner also could be feisty; let it go for now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Make a point to connect with someone important in your life. Try to have a discussion that you have been putting off, yet be willing to hear and internalize the other side.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You could be questioning your options. You might want to mix together different friends and loved ones from various walks of life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Pace yourself, as you might have a lot to do. A roommate or family member clearly wants you to help or pitch in. You have little choice if you would like to keep the peace.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Tap into your imagination, and know what you would like to happen. Keeping that in mind, try to think of different paths to your goals.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • Stay close to home; most of today’s action takes place where you live. You also might need some extra R and R. Curb a tendency to spend money when you become upset.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • Don’t stand on ceremony; make a call to a forlorn friend. You will feel much better as a result. Accepting this person as he or she is is important for both of you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Be aware of others’ boundaries, as well as your own. Honor them if you want to stay out of trouble.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • You will do whatever you need to gain the support of one person or several people. For some, a smile is enough.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Be willing to claim your space, and try not to respond to a demanding person. You usually are there for him or her.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Follow your friends, and you can’t go wrong. You might think you won’t enjoy what the activity is, but the camaraderie will be worth it.
