HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 12, 2013: This year someone who looks at life much differently from you serves as an inspiration. You will be very content and grateful to have this person in your life. You are entering the final year of a 12-year life cycle. You will want to examine what no longer works. If you can make adjustments in order to make this dimension of your life functional, do. If single, you could meet someone very interesting. If attached, schedule more private time together. If possible, schedule some weekend getaways together. Scorpio knows how to push your buttons. A baby born today has the sun in Leo and the moon in Libra until 1:10 p.m., when the moon enters Scorpio.
