A baby born today has a Sun and Moon in Leo.
Happy birthday for Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017:
This year you exude charisma and creativity. Your magnetic personality draws others toward you. Some people are attracted to you, whereas others are just curious and want to get to know you better. If you are single, you do not have to be overly active in pursuing The One. Trust that you will meet someone special when you’re out and about. If you are attached, you could be unusually assertive, which will create some tension between you and your significant other. Try to be less me-oriented and more sensitive to your sweetie. A fellow LEO might become sarcastic if pushed.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
A loved one could trigger a lot of unplanned activity. You’ll like what occurs, even though there are likely to be a few surprises along the way. A friend or loved one who is involved in some uproar might reach out to you. Tonight: Let the personality of the day shine through! This Week: Monday’s eclipse could cause some frantic activity and high emotional levels.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Slow down and make this a lazy day. Know that your idea will be contagious and will encourage others to join you. Let this happen, but do not feel as if you need to do anything with anyone. Choose plans just for you. Tonight: Schedule a massage. This Week: Your creativity allows you to get past various hassles.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Reach out to friends and loved ones and catch up on their news. The social quality of the day is not lost on you. Tap into a childlike curiosity and delight in some mischief when dealing with a loved one who tends to be difficult. Tonight: Make plans to meet friends for dinner. This Week: A domestic issue could come forward.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Be aware of the costs of proceeding in a chosen direction. The ramifications could be worse than you had anticipated. Your home might be your castle, but you will need to limit how much time you spend there. Tonight: Give thought to tomorrow. This Week: Remain nonreactive to an associate’s emotional outburst.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’ll be moving more quickly than you realize. If you’re playing a sport, this energy spurt is likely to pay off. However, you could find that your friends seem to be distancing themselves, as they can’t keep up. Be careful. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise first. This Week: You might decide to reverse direction. Expect strong reactions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You might not even realize that you have been so irritable as of late. Today, however, you become aware of some anger that is coming from you. A discussion about what is bothering you is appropriate. Be careful about making a costly mistake. Tonight: Make it early. This Week: You can handle whatever comes down the pike.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You could be on the verge of realizing a long-term goal with the help of a very assertive friend. Together, you can move mountains. Your positive and caring energy adds a softness to your inner determination. Tonight: Only where the crowds are. This Week: You could be weighing the pros and cons of a personal matter.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You are in the limelight, and others like what they see. Realize that your options are limited, and that once you commit, you might not be able to return to where you were. Think carefully before taking the leap. A secret encounter needs to stay hush-hush. Tonight: Accept an offer. This Week: A change might be in the offing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Reach out to someone at a distance. You might feel as if you rarely see this individual. Planning a get-together could be a lot of fun. Friends surround you, but one person proves to be a fountain of ideas. Tonight: Detach from a problematic situation. This Week: Be aware of the demands you must meet.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
One-on-one relating will be a source of satisfaction. A close friend or loved one might help you evaluate a purchase or an immediate change. An older friend seems to like how you present yourself and act. Take this person’s compliments with grace. Tonight: A must appearance. This Week: Detach, and you will see a key matter very differently.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You could be more involved in someone else’s life than you are aware. Reach out to someone at a distance who is a non-emotional source of feedback in your life. Listen to this person’s advice before making a decision. Tonight: Decide who, where and when. This Week: A partner might want a change in status or a different interaction.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
One-on-one relating could involve a purchase or a decision that could improve the quality of your life. Remain sure of yourself, but don’t push beyond your limits. Others need to learn that you, too, have a bottom line that needs to be honored. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. This Week: Continue to defer to others if you want positive interactions.
