Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For August 19, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What happens in the morning will make a difference to you when night falls -- but not before. Put it out of your mind until then.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone far from home reaches out to you -- but you may be rather confused as to the reason. You're not sure how you are supposed to react.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are quite confident at this time, but something you're sure of may turn out to be something of a crapshoot before the day is out.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- An authority figure has his or her eyes on you, and once you realize it, you'll understand just what's at stake. You must do good work.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Give a little, get a little -- that's the way it's going to work today. You must be willing and able to strike a mutually beneficial deal.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Taking what is not yours is no way to endear yourself to those under your care. Be generous when you can. Someone tries to second-guess you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're in the mood to explore new ways of doing familiar things. What you've read and seen teach you that anything is possible!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You've got to keep going, despite your desire to call it quits. Today the difficulties that pop up show you that you can prevail.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Not much is likely to happen by accident today. You can put on a show later, and a large audience will appreciate what you do.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Give another a second chance today and you'll get the benefit of the doubt when you need it. You can teach by example all day long.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be able to break out of the doldrums today in a very exciting way. You can be back on track and making headway very soon.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- By watching someone you admire, you can figure out how to do what you need to do without any sort of fear whatsoever. This is liberating!
