The Washington Times-Herald
---- — A baby born today has a Sun in Cancer and a Moon in Sagittarius.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, July 19, 2013:
This year you can make a difference because of your ability to run spontaneously in a new direction. You might not be sure of yourself, yet you’ll land like a cat on its feet. Listen to your instincts with those at a distance. You will be like a sponge, as you’ll absorb a lot of different information. If you are single, you could meet someone whom you put on a pedestal. You will have many choices, so choose your sweetie with care. If you are attached, this might be the year where the two of you will manifest a special dream you both share. SAGITTARIUS can be confusing.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
★★★ You might be ready to take off at the drop of a hat. If an adventure can last the whole weekend, that’s even better. Whether you hop on a plane or go for a long drive to visit a friend at a distance, it makes no difference. Excitement is heading your way! Tonight: Go with the flow.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
★★★ Take your cue from others. Make it a point to go along with set plans, as long as they are not offensive to you. Relating to others naturally draws out more information and establishes more of a mutual interest. Think carefully before making a decision. Tonight: Catch up on news.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
★★★ You could be pushing a hard line with a boss, older person or dear friend. At this point, this person is unlikely to do anything other than re-establish his or her boundaries. You could be taken aback by a wild thought or action; think before you respond. Tonight: Defer to a loved one.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
★★★ You might want to differentiate between what is real and necessary and what is superficial and can wait. Through prioritizing, you will cruise through your must-do list. You might want to consider organizing a little get-together over the weekend. Tonight: TGIF!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
★★★★ You might not be exactly sure as to which way to turn. Detach, and pretend that you are not a part of the scenario, but simply an onlooker. You will see what direction might be the most appropriate choice for you. Take in the panoramic view. Tonight: Let the fun begin.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
★★★ You might consider staying close to home, as you appear to be working through a domestic issue. It is far better to ask too many questions than not enough. An associate or loved one suddenly might reveal a new dimension. Tonight: Make sure the base of operations is your pad!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
★★★ You’ll decide that you must know what is happening between you and someone in your daily life. You might make comments just to see what the reaction is. You could hear a most unexpected answer, if you are not careful. This person reads you cold. Tonight: Out late.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
★★★★ You could be wondering what your limits are. Some of you might be focused strictly on your finances, while others will be considering the emotional variables. At times, you can be quite stern, and you push people away as a result. Is that really what you want? Tonight: Treat time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
★★★★ You might be suffering from a low-level depression, but you’ll refuse to let the world see these moments. In the spirit of the weekend, you could take on the role of cheerleader and help others have a good time. Reach out to a loved one at a distance. Tonight: Lead the celebration.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
★★★ You might feel off-kilter right now. Take a few days off. When was the last time you did something nurturing for yourself? Honor a change of pace, but don’t feel compelled to be part of it. Maintain your sense of humor. Tonight: The evening comes and goes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
★★★★ You love people honestly and openly. Still, you might be irked by a pushy relative. Try not to be harsh. Think very carefully before you speak; otherwise, you might be surprised at the words that could come flying out of your mouth. Tonight: Call a few friends to hang out.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
★★★★ You could be the teacher’s pet, but that means that you are carrying extra responsibility as well. You might want to honor a whim or a long-term desire. Make sure that you let others know when you will and will not be available. Tonight: In the limelight and having a ball.
