Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For August 29, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are likely to be more concerned today for another's well being than for your own. When a certain danger disappears, you'll surely relax.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Today marks an important new beginning of sorts. Don't let others stand in your way as you get the lay of the land. Take a friend's advice.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your attitude will make all the difference today as you find that you have to deal with those whom you usually try to avoid at all costs.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll have to work a deal with someone who, in the past, has been resistant to all overtures. Today, however, a new approach seems feasible.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be able to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat today, as you figure something out just in time. Share what you learn.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It may fall to you to keep the peace -- at home or at the workplace. You must be successful or your weekend plans may have to be scrapped.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you do for another he or she will do for you when the time comes -- and both of you will be in a better position to help others as well.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You should be able to do even more than you had planned today, provided you start out in the right direction. A friend rides shotgun.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Despite any assurances you may offer, someone isn't likely to believe that you can do all you say you can. Let your actions speak for you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The difference between an amateur and a professional approach should be very clear to you by day's end, and you'll know which to emulate.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may receive information through back channels today that boosts your standing among those in charge. Are you ready to do more?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not be able to take the most direct approach today, so you will have to begin as soon as possible to plot a more circuitous route.
