HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Aug. 10, 2013: This year you often find yourself brainstorming with others. You also like sharing stories and catching up on news with neighbors and relatives. You will renew your daily life in order to make it more exciting and meaningful. If single, you will meet a lot of people and attract many admirers. You might want to date more rather than commit. If attached, make sure that you spend plenty of time with your sweetie; otherwise, he or she could feel left out. Libra always loves visiting with you. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Virgo if born before 6:08 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Libra.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Make it your pleasure to defer to others. In many ways, you are so responsible that you need to practice letting go more often.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • You need some time to mellow out. Use today for just that, though you might need to get a few errands done first.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You might opt to stay close to home or somewhere you can enjoy yourself. You will see a situation evolve that could force your hand financially.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You’ll want to run errands right away. Plans easily could be made, as you might run into someone you would like to have coffee with.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Make your best effort to draw someone in. You will find that by asking the right questions, you will understand where this person is coming from.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • You could be taken aback by a friend’s provocative style. Perhaps you have tried initiating discussions about this in the past to no avail.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • You’ll finally feel as if you have cleared up a problem. You might be far more upbeat than you have been lately.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Step back some. You need more private time to accomplish what you want and also to relax. Consider including a frivolous activity or two.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Conversations will help you understand others and allow you to help them resolve their differences.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You could feel put off by a friend’s attitude. You might wonder what is necessary to make a situation work.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • If you are thinking about someone at a distance, pick up the phone and call him or her. Do not stand on ceremony, even if you have had a disagreement.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You could be taken aback by a partner or friend’s feisty attitude. Have a long-overdue conversation with a loved one.
