HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013: This year you move forward with a venture that might be very important to you. Use good sense with those you choose to involve, eyeing loyalty and knowledge as important traits. Your endurance counts more than you realize. If single, use caution committing, as many people want to be your sweetie. In order to impress you, a suitor might distort who he or she is. If attached, make sure to include your sweetie in your outside life. Also make time for you two alone. Capricorn pushes nearly everyone hard. A baby born today has the sun in Leo and the moon in Capricorn.
