Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For August 15, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A challenge arises today that will soon have you tapping into all kinds of skills you haven't used lately. You can overcome it with style!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're likely to attract quite an audience today if you stay on course and do what lies ahead. Are you ready to be the center of attention?

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to play a more important role in someone else's affairs today than you had expected. Still, he or she could be in no better hands.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A rough start gives way to smooth sailing later in the day. You will begin to measure gains almost immediately, but expect an ebb and flow.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What someone else can't do, you may be able to do quite well -- even though you'll be jumping into a situation that may not be familiar to you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to talk yourself into something that you would otherwise steer clear of -- but the reason, and possible rewards, are clear.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will have a chance to revisit something today that is a favorite of yours. Inspiration results, and a new project may be conceived.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You want things to be as simple and clear-cut as your notion of right and wrong, but today you're likely to face a much more confusing reality.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A positive attitude goes a long way today, especially when you are facing difficulties that are not of your own making.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your confidence may take a hit today, thanks to someone not being in the right place at the right time. Recovery is assured but could take time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not get the commitment from friends you were hoping for, but one or two will be willing to give you some time and attention.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Don't be fooled by appearances today! You'll want to get down to the nitty-gritty, where how things look don't matter at all.
