HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Aug. 15, 2013: You might be most comfortable this year with a strong sense of direction involving your personal life. You could discover a need for a sudden move or change. Listen to your options and be aware of how you block yourself. If single, you might be shocked at how fast someone makes your abode his or her home. Be sure you want that. Ask yourself how well you know this person. If attached, the two of you will fulfill a goal and a longtime dream if you team up together. Take a vacation or break by water. Pisces confuses you, because sometimes Pisces is confusing! A baby born today has the sun in Leo and the moon in Sagittarius.
