HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Aug. 10, 2018:

This year you won't be complaining of boredom. You even could be found praying for some downtime. Your active life allows you to meet several people from different walks of life. If you are single, you will want to explore different lifestyles and people. Travel will allow you to meet several potential suitors. If you are attached, the two of you could be greatly influenced by a workshop, course or trip. You see your life through new eyes, and this perspective can reinvigorate your relationship. A fellow LEO encourages you to jump past a self-imposed barrier.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You could feel as though others are out of control. Could this comment possibly apply to you? Once conversations and interactions take a more even tone later in the day, you could get some important feedback. Communication takes on a frantic tone. Tonight: Let off some steam.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)


You might have difficulty letting go of pressure, as so much could be occurring within your personal or domestic life. Relax -- you cannot change the situation for now, but soon you will see an opening. Maintain a sense of humor. Tonight: Head home early and plan on a cozy night.

Your sixth sense always informs you when you have pushed too hard. Others could be acting out in strange ways. Detach before you get too involved. Know that a solar eclipse occurs tomorrow. Many people could be reacting to its energy. Tonight: Swap war stories of the week.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You, of all signs, feel the ebb and flow of the tides, but you also respond to the gravitational pull of the planets. Be aware of what is going on around you. Many people feel out of kilter but do not know why. Indulge a friend, and do what he or she wants. Tonight: Dinner for two.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You seem to be functioning on a high level. The unexpected becomes more frequent when you are out among the crowds. People express their feelings and insecurities in what they hope is a meaningful way. Just do your thing. Tonight: Greet the weekend in grand style.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You could feel somewhat depressed. Although tomorrow's eclipse is unlikely to affect your life, you still feel its draining influence. Do your best not to allow the vibes of this eclipse to mar some fun moments. A loved one wants to share some feelings. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)


You'll be observing your friends and wondering what is ailing them. Many of them could be very moody or touchy. Know that they are feeling the vibes of tomorrow's solar eclipse. Use this moment to zero in on a wish involving a loved one. Tonight: Make the most of the night.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You probably did not expect to be in the limelight. A boss appreciates how you present yourself. Make strong choices not only for yourself, but also for others. A loved one could be acting strangely. Soon, his or her strange ways will become normal! Tonight: Dance the night away!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might be weighing the possibility of taking a few days off. You could need the excitement of a different environment, and you might meet some unusual people as well. Your mind may be so full of ideas that you can accomplish little! Tonight: Say "yes" to living.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The reason that you like both the staid and the predictable is that you know how to deal with those factors in your life. When the unexpected starts rampaging through your life, you might not be so confident. Just consider how exhilarating change can be! Tonight: Out late.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You could be extremely busy dealing with others and their requests. Several friends decide that they cannot enjoy the weekend without you! Be flattered as you try to incorporate everyone's plans into the next few days. Tonight: Be only where friends can be found.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)


Reach out to a co-worker, especially if you feel that you cannot complete everything you want. The unexpected could crash through your daily life, be it a lost cellphone or a car problem. Know that, in the long run, these snafus are minor.
Tonight: At your favorite haunt.
