HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2013: This year you are more in touch with the deeper meanings of life. You also are more sensitive to the people in your life. You have the ability to walk in others’ footsteps with ease. If single, with this additional compassion, you will have more than your share of suitors. If attached, your sweetie will respond positively to your kindheartedness, which adds to your mutual happiness. Pisces can be quite emotional. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Pisces.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Tap into your intuition, and realize that more answers are needed. Detach from a situation involving someone who knows how to trigger you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Your spunky ways attract many people. The problem is that most of them want to be close to you, even just as friends.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You are full of excitement. Right now, you barely can discuss what’s on your mind, as others keep seeking you out to help them with their issues.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You have your hands full. Prioritize, and you’ll clear out your to-do list. People could demand a lot from you, but be sure to meet your personal needs first.
