Happy birthday for Tuesday, Aug. 22, 2017:
This year you notice that your message often gets distorted. In general, you are precise and direct in your communication, but seem to have trouble understanding where others are coming from. If you are single, you could be very fussy about whom you choose to date. No one enjoys being criticized; work on acceptance. If you are attached, you sweetie could be quite affectionate and might demand a lot of time with you. Make this quality time a high priority. A fellow LEO makes a great healer for you.
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)
You will want to be as efficient and effective as possible. If you are in a situation where you feel confused, or as if you or the other party can’t connect clearly, you might realize that you’re not speaking the same language. Restart the topic if need be. Tonight: Busy, busy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Your imagination will fill in the gaps. You’ll connect with an artist or a very creative friend, and will enjoy the interaction more than usual. How you see a personal matter could be updated because of an event that occurs today. Tonight: Let the fun and games begin.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Stay centered and focused. Conversations could be fun and unusually resourceful. However, when dealing with someone who seems depressed, you might realize that your perception is off. Choose your words with care. Tonight: Join friends for a fun night out.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Keep communication flowing, even if you feel as if you are hitting a wall. Perhaps you can get further by maintaining your sense of humor. You have a way of getting people to open up and say what is really on their mind. Say less and listen more. Tonight: Impulsiveness works.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You see the costs of an arrangement between you and someone else. You might not see eye to eye with this person, but you also are not coming from the same place. Use caution with any financial matter, as there could be an error or a misunderstanding. Tonight: Do for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You might not agree with a key person in your life. Your perspective could change, but at the moment, what you are hearing doesn’t seem to appeal to you. Play the waiting game, if possible. A family member could be too withdrawn for your taste. Tonight: Let go of worries.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You might be uncomfortable with what you hear. Ideas shared by others might not be in sync with what you think. Don’t become irritated; instead, consider how you could express your ideas in a way that will get others to understand and support it. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Be clear about what you want, especially if you’re in a meeting. Someone who indicates that he or she supports you might not be supportive in the way you were expecting. Be aware that this person is not always the best influence. Tonight: Happiest around crowds.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
A must appearance simply cannot be put off, even if you would like to vanish. You will project a mystic or magnetic quality. As a result, others will be drawn to you. Stay on topic, and do not allow a distracting thought to throw you off. Tonight: Whatever you do, be near music.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Take in the big picture. The wider your scope, the more positive the results. Your sense of humor returns when you see just how confusing conversations around you seem to be. Pull back, listen and avoid making any major decisions just yet. Tonight: Read between the lines.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might feel as if no one quite understands where you are coming from. Unless you explain your thoughts in a new or different way, you aren’t likely to be clearly understood. Someone else wants the platform to speak; let him or her have it. Tonight: Accept an offer.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You don’t often see eye to eye with others, but explaining why might prove to be difficult. Your mind is always going over certain issues. Let others speak their mind, and be attentive to what is being said. You don’t need to go along with the ideas, just listen. Tonight: At home.
