HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 19, 2019:

This year, you will be full of get-up-and-go. You will need to have a physical outlet to clear away some of your high energy. If single, you will meet someone toward the end of this birthday year. This person will encourage you to stop and get to know him or her better. If attached, this coming year will revolve around new perspectives, traveling and in-laws. You will become far less judgmental as well. ARIES can match your energy any day!

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You will hear a lot of news, with perhaps some gossip sprinkled in. An authority figure seems cool and austere. This person’s expectations might not be the same as yours. Tonight: You call the shots. Others go along with your choices.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Pull back and listen. You could feel unusually pressured and might not want to participate in a discussion. You might be unusually serious. Your perspective could be enhanced by staying mum. Tonight: Head home, screen your calls and take the dog for a long walk.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You could find an argument powerful, but it is not one you can support. In fact, rather than discuss the issue, the other party closes down. You could feel frustrated. Still, information comes up. Tonight: A partner seems ready to spill the beans.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You decide you will call the shots today. Do not be surprised if a close associate develops an attitude. Let it happen, but make sure you really want the lead. Make an important call. Tonight: Say yes to an offer.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You cannot seem to go along with the status quo. You know a lot, but decide to question a decision or an important change of direction. You will seek out expert advice. You will also try to place yourself in another’s shoes. Tonight: Be imaginative.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might want to draw a partner or associate into what you deem a major conversation. You can see all sorts of positive outcomes. The other party might not agree and might want to postpone this chat. Give this person space. Tonight: Relaxing with a loved one.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your inclination to let others handle problems might be convenient for you and flattering for others. You could want to respond to a friend’s or loved one’s overtures. This person is frequently lucky for you. Tonight: Return calls, then decide.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You could feel a bit out of sorts, possibly because of a financial gamble. You also might sense an undercurrent around you. A lot might be going on that others are choosing not to discuss with you. Do not push, just listen. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You have more than your share of energy, which is visible to anyone looking at you. What could be a problem is that you are far more prone to taking risks when you feel like this. Choose your risks with care. Tonight: Keep it light.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You find that others could be unusually playful and fun-loving. Loosen up if you can, but do not act negatively toward those who are not as reactive and work-oriented as you. Good news heads your way after a discussion. Tonight: Talking with a loved one or friend.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Return calls quickly. You might need to revamp your schedule because of what you hear. An opportunity that heads your way needs to be explored, especially if a friend is invited. Tonight: Telling it like it is.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Deal with financial matters early, before too much happens and you do not have time. People seek you out left and right. Remain as responsive as possible. You take charge of a project. Tonight: A must appearance.
