Your horoscopes


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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019:

This year, you often find yourself in a power play and unsure of what you want. The best way to handle this type of situation is not to play or react. If single, you might go through several different people this year. You’re about to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. Don’t worry! If attached, you love sharing time together, discussing far-out ideas. You often can be found just the two of you, sharing and laughing. ARIES knows how to provoke you into listening to or working with them. You know how to say no if you’re not interested!

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Though you often can be found on the go, sometimes you get hooked within a situation. You might be involved in a power play, finally recognizing the dynamics today. Unless you want a full-scale battle, let it go. Tonight: Whatever appeals.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You may feel the need to pull back some to handle a problem. Right now you must look at what is ailing you. What do you need to change? Give some thought to the issue at present rather than opening up discussions. Tonight: Get as much sleep as you can.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Zero in on your priorities. You might not be as sure as you might like when dealing with an issue around a friend or family member. You might prefer to avoid the chat in question. Just know that sooner or later, the conversation will be necessary. Tonight: Among the crowds.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You have extraordinary appeal right now. A person who you often see during the day lets you know that he or she would like to get to know you better. Decide whether you’re interested and how to handle this situation. Tonight: Where the fun is!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

If you experience a last-minute snafu involving a creative idea or project, detach. You might be disappointed, but a resolution becomes possible if you stay cool. Look at the big picture and consider how the other party feels. Tonight: Where you can let your mind drift.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A one-on-one conversation could lead you down a path different from the one you’ve chosen. The talk was authentic and realistic, so don’t shrug off the alternative. Tonight: Invite a close partner or friend for dinner.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Others could be unusually demanding. Let them take the lead and create what they insist upon having. You could want to put some substantial distance between them and you. Tonight: Your instincts are right on.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You could accomplish the lion’s share of work if you resist temptation and an invitation. Ultimately, the decision is yours, but consider the long-term implications as well. You’ll know which way to go. Tonight: Walk home if you can.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your playfulness and ease with risk sets you apart from most people. You clearly have several admirers who would like to have as easygoing a personality as you have. Open up a conversation about risk. Tonight: Off living it up.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Fundamentals count right now. You understand, but many others don’t. You need a strong sense of security, which stems in part from a solid relationship. You might feel conflicted at the moment. Tonight: Happy at home.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You are likely to read into a conversation and another person’s reaction and see things that don’t actually exist. Make an effort to interact with others, and don’t take them for granted. You’ll become far more appreciated as a result. Tonight: Stay in the neighborhood.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Be aware of costs. Count your change. Balance your checkbook. A discussion around money and work will be quite important. Ensure that you have an adequate sense of what you want, offer and will accept. Tonight: Call someone you’ve been wanting to hear from.
