HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013: This year you are capable of creating what you want – you just have to figure out what that is. You often juggle mixed feelings, and you might not be very sure of yourself. You have an unusually strong need to take care of others. Do not forget to put yourself at the top of the list. If single, your dynamic personality attracts many different people. If attached, the two of you support each other in becoming free thinkers. Aquarius can be provocative. A baby born today has a moon in Pisces and a sun in Leo if born before 7:02 p.m. Afterward, the sun will be in Virgo.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might be more comfortable assuming a low profile right now. You will be able to gather more information while simultaneously doing some much-needed research.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You might be dealing with a personal issue. As a result, you could have difficulty maintaining your focus until this situation is resolved.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You’ll feel as though you are on top of your game, and you know full well what you want to communicate. You have a unique ability to draw others toward you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Be more creative in how you follow through on your priorities. Do not get caught up in a momentary disagreement or in others’ concerns.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Allow yourself to have some downtime. You will be much happier if you relax. A financial offer might be too good to be true.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Energy levels increase as the day goes on. Do not feel as if you have to push hard to accomplish anything right now.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Plug away at work as if there were no tomorrow. You have many ideas, but don’t push yourself too hard; you will have time to get everything done.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Your creativity will emerge, and you could feel more focused by late afternoon. A true friend will stand behind you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Pressure builds in the next few weeks to take a stronger stand at work or to step up to the plate with a caretaking issue.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You are willing to push yourself to extremes in order to accomplish what you want.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Get as much done as you can in the morning, when you are able to accomplish more. Also, others will be more receptive then.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You could be overwhelmed by your choices right now. By evening, you will have a clearer sense of your priorities and a better sense of which direction you should head in.
