Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For August 23, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to find that you are only weakening your position today by trying to explain yourself. Let what you do stand on its own.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not understand how your thoughts and feelings work together today, but you must assume that they do. There's a mystery to solve.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You likely have little or no time to spend looking for an "easy" way out of a certain situation. The hard way may be the only way -- period.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're not likely to forget what happens today for a very long time -- and it's the little things that have the most profound impact on you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't stop until you cross the finish line today. There are those who would slow your progress if they could, but they are not a factor -- yet.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to look carefully at all that is going on beneath the surface today. You'll know what you must do by day's end.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Information comes to you in fits and starts today. You'll have the chance to give someone else his or her due -- and take credit for it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You've decided there's no difference between you and someone you admire -- so there's no reason you can't equal his or her creative output.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're giving someone else a little more of a head start today than anyone else. Is this fair? Perhaps that question is not one to ask.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll understand what's going on around you only after you study trends that have led you to where you are. Then it all makes sense!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The usual and familiar may make you quite uncomfortable today for some reason, whereas you feel right at home with the new and untried.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Go fishing today and you'll reel in the information you need. Don't wait until you receive warnings that it will soon be "too late."
