HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013: This year you could be unusually optimistic and forward-looking. Sometimes you want to radically change your life in some key way. Other times, you might want to keep the status quo, as you know how to make various parts of your life run in sync together. If single, you are able to meet many people. It is likely that you could meet and be attracted to someone who might be emotionally unavailable. If attached, the two of you will benefit from taking some romantic weekends alone. Leo is always friendly. Look past that behavior when dealing with one. A baby born today has a sun and moon in Leo if born before 6:34 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Virgo.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You could feel challenged by a boss or parent you respect, but who can become very controlling.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Your perspective could change radically after a discussion forces your hand. You might wonder how you are going to be able to cover all the ground you need to cover.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Use extreme caution with your finances. You could be juggling more than you normally would like.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You might be in a positive, buoyant mood, but a friend could be in the mood to play power games. Use caution with your word choice.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • You might want to express dismay. You will want to sort out how much you are projecting into the situation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might want to consider taking a different approach or finding a new way of dealing with a rebellious – and sometimes vindictive – loved one.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You might want to try a new approach and avoid having to deal with a very grumpy associate.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You understand people who are controlling better than they understand themselves – possibly because you have the same trait.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • You could feel as if you are right about a money venture and everyone else is wrong.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You could be pushing people away left and right with your authoritarian attitude. Try to minimize this behavior, even if you are the boss.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You might want to try something else or do something differently. You might witness, or perhaps even participate in, the clash of wills around you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Your plans could go up in smoke because one person wants things one way and someone else wants it his or her way.
