Your Birthday for August 12, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're more concerned with "where" and "when" than with "why," but it's this last question that must be answered before the day is out.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The moment you begin denying what is already widely known is the moment you risk losing the respect of someone important to you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your actions are likely to strain credulity. A friend has your back, however, and may well provide you with your most valuable marketing.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can bounce back quickly, but perhaps it's better to avoid certain foreseeable hazards in the first place!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Any difficulties you encounter can be minimized simply by approaching them with the correct outlook. Nothing is as bad as it seems.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to go with Plan B because of something a rival has done to stand between you and the most logical path.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Timing isn't everything; it's the only thing -- or close to it. You must keep your eye on the clock, even as you improvise.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You know how to do a certain something much better than a rival. This is a case of training as well as suitability for the task.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your eyes will be opened to an opportunity you have been overlooking for far too long -- and it won't be around forever!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can get around a roadblock without sacrificing either speed or progress. Someone you know will make a spectacle of him- or herself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The demands made on you may push you to the brink, but your rational nature will keep you from doing what can't be undone.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not recognize what is right in front of you. Someone you know only casually will take on a more important role than usual.
