Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For August 21, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Be direct and up-front about what you want or need today -- that's the only way you're going to get it. You mustn't beat around the bush!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll do things in your usual way today, attracting attention because you cannot avoid "showing off" in some way. You have style, surely!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may wish you were somewhere else today, but the fact is that you are where you are and you must deal with certain issues head-on.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll want to count your money and make sure all of your available resources are at your disposal today. Some hard work lies ahead.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have cause to remember an exciting adventure from your past -- but you mustn't make the mistake of thinking that you can relive it now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can expect a surprise to knock you off your plate today -- but then, if you expect it, you can probably minimize its overall effect!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not agree with the way a friend or partner is addressing a certain situation, but you can't come up with anything better. Lend a hand.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're in the mood to share something with a special someone. Toward midday a chance encounter gives you the "perfect" idea.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're entering a period in which you will be certain about much, but some of what you encounter will still throw you off balance.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're happy with the status quo overall, but there's one thing you want to address before you give it your stamp of approval.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Take a close look at what someone else is doing, and you'll realize that you are on the right track yourself -- despite any recent doubts.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may hear from someone who has a few secrets to tell -- but perhaps you don't want to be part of something that is going on "under the table."
