HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Aug. 30, 2013: This year you will see a big difference in what occurs between you and others. You will make a new friend who will be more receptive to you. If single, meeting someone through this person’s circle of friends could prove to be significant to your life history. If attached, the two of you will realize a long-term dream that you both have wanted. You are in a year when you wish upon a star, and more often than not, it will come true! Cancer is a loyal friend. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Gemini if born before 4:33 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Stay focused. Keep the lines of communication open, but choose to discuss only what’s necessary.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Though you might be out of sorts at first, know that what you’re looking for is readily accessible. Open up talks with a loved one.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Curb a need to be possessive, and simply trust what is going on. Be willing to express your thoughts and find out where a friend is coming from.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You might want to relax and let go, but a surprise visit from a superior or friend will set the pace of your day.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Understand that you can’t control issues or people. You can control only yourself and your responses. Others can choose to do whatever they want.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • With as many people as there are seeking you out, it will be almost unbelievable that you are choosing to work on a project instead of socializing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Others turn to you for advice. You might not be in a position to help a particular person, but you can point him or her to a different source for feedback.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • You have the gift of seeing more in interactions and discussions than others see. You understand that each action creates a response.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Others will make an effort to influence an important matter involving your finances. Honor what is going on, as it only can benefit you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Listen to news that is forthcoming, and be aware that everyone has a different perspective.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Honor who you are throughout the day. Sometimes you might be so quick to give a knee-jerk reaction that others could be put off.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You might want to see a personal matter in a different light, and you will … once you stop reacting.
