HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013: You often waver between deep reflection and spontaneous action. What encourages one behavior over the other might be an issue this year. You will learn to integrate these two elements or characteristics. If single, you will make choices reflective of the state you are in. Date and relate, but make no commitments this year. If attached, your moodiness could toss a partner into confusion. Take the time to explain what you are experiencing. Sagittaruis encourages your playfulness. A baby born today has the sun in Leo and the moon in Scorpio until 6:04 p.m., when the moon enters Sagittarius.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • Build on a key relationship or partnership. A family member or domestic matter comes up and needs to be managed efficiently.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Others certainly present quite the options. You might not be sure of yourself vis-a-vis a child or loved one.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Opportunities come forward, allowing you to touch base with friends and associates. A decision comes forward; this decision will give you more freedom of action.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Permit your creativity to flourish and help integrate a change. Listen to your instincts and follow through on examining what could be a risk financially.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You might want to get past a restriction that easily could be self-imposed. You are eyeing a situation involving real estate or a personal matter.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • A discussion is inevitable. A friend means well; try to absorb the comment in the way it was meant as opposed to how it sounded.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Tension builds, especially if you are reactive to a superior or boss. You also find a partner or several close associates reacting in an odd way.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You are in the right mood to handle a personal matter. You see the whole picture, and you are willing to do the gyrations needed to settle others in for a talk.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • You might opt to say very little at the present moment. A partner pushes you hard in order to get the results he or she wants.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • You might want to follow in the direction others seem to be pointing to. On the other hand, you know what feels right.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You handle responsibilities with decorum and honesty. Recognize what is possible within a certain situation as well as where your power lies.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Allow more feedback and speak less. Ask questions when you don’t understand what is being said. Realize there are many ways and answers.
