HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013: This year you feel more comfortable kicking up your heels and becoming more playful than in the past. You often will be juggling two different interests. Knowing what you want can’t be emphasized enough. You could be unusually fortunate, especially in your personal life. If single, you seriously might be considering a change of status this year. If attached, the two of you benefit from special time together. In some cases, you will be getting to know each other again. Aries can be demanding. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Aries all day.
