Your horoscopes

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Aug. 22, 2019:

This year, you become more willing to open up to dynamic changes. You will take risks more often, although you will carefully weigh the pros and cons. Nevertheless, if you feel the risk is a good one, you might leap in with little information. If single, your love life could be nothing less than exciting. You might not find “the one” this year, but you will enjoy dating. If attached, you might see your sweetie as more conservative. Do not mix up stable with conservative. You might be rapidly changing. Be happy he or she is there for you. TAURUS is even more stubborn than you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Even when negativity is directed toward you, you use it in a positive manner. Somehow, you don’t feel the sting that difficult people may encase in their words. Keep the reins on your imagination. Tonight: Go for that special item.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You could be edgy with a demanding boss or authority figure. Transform your edginess into a strong conversation about expectations. Mixed messages could mess up your plans. Make sure you are on the same page as others. Tonight: Happily heading home.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You may feel as if you need to be more tuned in to a serious-minded relative or friend. You often sense this person’s judgment. Confusion surrounds an interaction. Give up your impulsiveness and hang in there. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep. You’re going to need it.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Your feelings come out when dealing with a friend. If you do not like what you want to say, don’t talk. You will gain if you think through the situation more completely. The situation is not a one-way street. Tonight: Getting into weekend mode.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might feel slighted. You find that others are very much into their own “stuff” and work. Relax. These situations will even out. A special offer could come your way anytime — even today. Tonight: You’re a star wherever you are.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Reach out for more understanding. You might be coming to a significant decision and would benefit from all of the expert advice you can get. You might not always agree with what you hear, but you do need to hear different viewpoints. Tonight: Take a leap of faith.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

One-on-one relating draws interesting results. Someone might say something that could be raw or not thought through. Don’t get in a tizzy. This person will explain his or her words later. You have nothing to worry about. Tonight: Make the most out of the moment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It might be easier to defer to others. You wonder how everyone has become so headstrong. Perhaps you have been an excellent role model. Maintain your sense of humor. Tonight: Just don’t be alone.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Pace yourself. You might not be able to keep a rigid schedule. At one point in the day, a need for an extended conversation becomes obvious. Once you get past the talk, your creativity surges. Tonight: You might want to adjust your plans.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If you’re hitting a block, tap into your creativity. You will find that the answer lies within you. A brainstorming session could work as well. You are coming from a solid base. Don’t worry about what you might judge as an ephemeral idea. Tonight: Consider taking up a new hobby.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Even you sometimes get stuck or wedged into a niche you cannot seem to escape. At the moment, you find it difficult to take a leap of faith to create more of what you want and desire. Tonight: Get the pad ready for company.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Speak your mind, but try to be as succinct and clear as possible. Someone might take umbrage at your words, but most people won’t. Trust your choices. Tonight: Get together with friends for dinner.
