HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013: This year people often don’t know which way you will go in situations where your opinion is needed. Sometimes you will be stubborn, as you believe that your idea is the best. Other times, you will want a selection of many ideas to toy around with. If single, others could be confused yet intrigued by you. If attached, you could confuse your sweetie. Sometimes you might be insistent that you are right; other times, you could care less. Gemini adores your diversity. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Gemini if born after 4:06 p.m. Prior to that time, the moon is in Taurus.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You are surrounded by people who are self-indulgent. You will want to initiate a serious discussion, but playfulness might create a somewhat chaotic atmosphere.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Use the morning for anything major you must do. You will feel more empowered than you have in a long time.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • If you feel like moving slowly, you have the right idea. In fact, it won’t be until midafternoon that you will feel back up to snuff.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Focus your attention on others, on an important business meeting and/or on an opportunity to head in a new direction.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You tend to take on more than your fair share of work and responsibility. The good news is that you know when to kick back and start enjoying yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Look at the big picture, and consider your options. If there is a situation that is stopping you, look at the reason why, and see if it is really worth holding on to.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You might want to look past the obvious with a partner. Try to root out the real cause of this person’s interpersonal issue.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • You might not be comfortable with everything others are saying. Don’t automatically deny what you hear, as you will get confirmation to the validity of part of the message.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Continue with your focus on work. Little will be able to distract you until midday.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Review a recent decision before approaching a loved one. A change of mind is not out of the question.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • If you are able to, try to work from home … at least through the morning hours. A key situation will encourage you to deal with it first.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Brief calls could turn into lengthy conversations. You might feel as if your whole schedule is being taken over!
