HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 26, 2013: This year you approach life with seriousness and the ability to realize a long-term desire. You have both endurance and Lady Luck on your team. An associate whom you are close to might be most unpredictable. You will need to learn to flex because of this person. If single, you could be unusually idealistic and/or confused when dating or getting to know someone better. If attached, it is through working together that you become closer. Taurus helps you see the big picture. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Taurus all day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You could be overly serious as the day begins. You might feel as if there is a lot of tension around a domestic matter you need to deal with.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You might want to think through a decision more carefully. Remain responsive as you juggle different forms of communication.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Know when to take a pass and not jump headfirst into a project. Honor the fact that you have had enough. If you can take a day off, do.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You will find that success comes naturally. If you start to overthink things, you might sabotage yourself. Your instincts are right on.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • You’ll want to see results from your recent efforts, and you’re more than willing to put in the necessary hours. A boss could feel pushed by your enthusiasm.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Detach, especially if you’re feeling pressured by a partner. You might not be sure what direction you should head in.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Relate to a partner or friend directly. You will see better results, and so will those around you. You seem very busy to others, and a loved one could do the unexpected.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Defer to others, as they are unlikely to be responsive at this moment. Take an overview, and you’ll gain a deeper understanding of what is motivating others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • You dive into your to-do list nearly immediately, and with someone’s help, you could get through your list earlier than you might have thought.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You could feel subdued by a choice you need to make. Someone close to you clearly spoils you; however, this person might not be able to give you feedback.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You are full of laughter and fun despite the fact that you are dealing with a heavy burden or a difficult situation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You might be making a situation more confusing than it needs to be. You have some strong words you want to share about a money matter.
