Your horoscopes


A baby born today has a Sun in Leo and a Moon in Pisces.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 18, 2019:

This year, you increase your capacity to relate on an intense level. Others frequently come to you to discuss matters of consequence. If you’re single, one of your most desirable traits is this capacity for relating. You draw in sensitive people. However, you have a facet of your personality that is fiery, risk-taking and wild. Few can handle both sides. If you’re attached, your significant other will appreciate your new depths but may not know how to respond at first. Give this person time. You love to play with ARIES, and you love the gooey conversations you can have with PISCES.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You might suddenly be driven to start a new physical fitness plan or approach a project with more energy. Take action as soon as this afternoon. You could become feisty in the next few weeks if you don’t get exercise. Tonight: As you like.

This Week: Monday you are a veritable wiz. Should any hassle appear, you will skip right through it. Try to maintain that positive attitude all week long.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

A friend implores you to join him or her for an early brunch. If you go, you’ll discover what a great time you can have together. You both appear to have too much energy to spare. Tonight: Think Monday.

This Week: Maintain a low profile until Wednesday. Gather facts. Make decisions midweek on.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You are not bossy in general, but you assume a take-charge attitude in the afternoon. You have a goal in mind that you plan to reach, and you will not allow anyone to interfere. Can you play it easygoing? Tonight: Go with a friend’s suggestion.

This Week: Zero in on priorities. Know what you want Monday and Tuesday. Take a new look at the emotional landscape midweek.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You spend the morning thinking about a possible trip or visiting a loved one. Once you land, you might even be somewhat controlling as you demand to have it your way. Don’t be surprised if you get a no! Tonight: Greeting the wee hours.

This Week: Pressure soars as the week begins. By Wednesday, you know you have accomplished a major feat.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You allow others to dominate at present. You might not even be conscious of this decision; it simply feels easier. You might discover a far easier way to bring others together than your normal choice. Tonight: Go for exotic cuisine.

This Week: Reach out for someone you care about. How you handle a situation could be unusual yet effective. Midweek, take charge.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You have gone along with others’ wishes for a while. You might feel as if someone is being unusually difficult or hard on you. You can break this pattern this afternoon by simply taking charge or having a discussion. Tonight: All smiles.

This Week: If you hit an obstacle, know that you can get past nearly any problem with the help of another person. Express your appreciation to this person.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Get a project done or get into reading the Sunday paper early. By afternoon, a knock on the door or a friendly invitation summons you to join your friends or family. Tonight: Hang out as long as you want.

This Week: You wish you could get some quality time with a loved one or special friend. You could feel tested at times during this work week.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are still going full speed ahead, partly because of your ingenuity. At some point, you will need to slow down and evaluate. Realign your priorities. You find life flows if you do. Tonight: Invite others over for dessert.

This Week: Getting into the work week is not a problem. Staying focused after Wednesday could be difficult. Your social life picks up.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Allow some laziness in the morning. You always seem to go at a fast clip, so the change could be refreshing. By afternoon, you will want to break into a faster pace. Tonight: Wherever you are, you will be visiting and catching up on news. Let the fun begin.

This Week: Be discriminating about what you share with a loved one. This person could get so excited it might be hard to share other news.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might be unusually concise and direct in the morning. You could realize what a big gap you have to bridge with a friend to come to terms with a situation. You simply need to accept each other’s styles. Stay close to home if possible. Tonight: Order in.

This Week: Your ability to get past a hassle emerges, especially if the issue is domestic or personal. You make a great role model in any case.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Restricting yourself from making a major expenditure or several little ones proves to be smart. It might take a few days to understand why the self-discipline was necessary. Meet a friend for a late lunch if possible. Tonight: Return calls first.

This Week: Defer to another person, knowing full well you cannot convince him or her to follow your suggestions. Disengage if possible.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

A sudden argument or emotional eruption could mar a nearly perfect morning. Toss yourself into a preferred pastime in the afternoon rather than going over and over the same incident. Tonight: A small gesture works.

This Week: Use caution with spending. You might inadvertently go overboard. After Tuesday, it becomes apparent that your judgment of a situation is correct.
