HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 4, 2013: This year vibrancy surrounds you, and you seem to embrace it. Others recognize your presence and your keen perspectives. Just when people might think that they’re sure of your actions and decisions, you’ll veer off track. You are like a cat with nine lives this year. Still, use good sense. If single, life could become very exciting, as a foreigner or someone quite different could enter the picture. If attached, a trip could change your relationship for the better. Aries is a source of wonder. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Aries if born after 12:41 a.m. Prior to that time, the Moon is in Taurus.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Opt to spend more time close to home. You could have a project to get done, or perhaps you just might want to catch up on some TV reruns.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You might want to get together with some friends for a leisurely lunch. An offer that isn’t necessarily business-related could come forward and delight your imagination.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Use logic to keep expenses down when you are in a situation that requires spending. Out of the blue, a friend could throw your plans into chaos.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You seem to be the focus of the day. Calls will come in from all directions, with people asking what you are doing and if you will you join them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Be careful about what you say and do. You could be picking up a more subtle message from someone.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You have a strong sense of direction. Friends will push to have you join them for a fun get-together. Others might wonder why you are dodging them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You seem to be more responsive to a friend than you have been in a while. You’ll enjoy what occurs between you – the fun and laughter.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Keep reaching out to someone you enjoy, who reflects your values yet thinks totally differently. Discussions between you often are noteworthy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Realize what is happening with a child or loved one. Try to accommodate this person; otherwise, you’ll find that your plans will be sabotaged.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Listen to news more openly, and evaluate what is happening with others. Under the present circumstances, you’ll want to isolate yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You might be in a position where you’ll have to revamp your plans and perhaps even accept an extra responsibility.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Be playful and spontaneous. You even might choose to take a dare without thinking about the ramifications.
