Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For August 13, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't give up today. Stick with it -- whatever "it" is -- and prove to yourself and others that you have what it takes.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's time to put the genie back in the bottle -- and you must be sure that when you do, it's not likely to get out again. Be firm and determined!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're tired of doing the same old things in the same old ways -- and in the same old surroundings. Get up and out, and find new inspiration!

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may find that very few are in a position to help you at this time. Put an end to your own uncertainty, take a stand and get things done.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not know quite how to approach someone about a certain problem, but being sheepish and reluctant isn't the way. Try being up-front!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You want things to be shipshape before opening your doors to someone from afar. Get the job done -- and make a few fun changes in the process.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be relieved to learn you're not the only one working on a certain problem. Today, the team comes together for a concerted effort.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to add things up and figure out where you stand today. When everything has been tallied, you should come out on top.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your study of something from long ago helps you address a problem that is very much a product of the modern age. Be creative!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be inspired by someone who is facing his or her demons at this time. By day's end, you can take steps to address a few of your own.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It's a good day to shower those around you with love and affection. Any and all gestures of goodwill are sure to be appreciated.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have something to hide today -- or so you think. The truth is that someone already knows the truth; facing it directly is your best course.
