For Wednesday, Aug. 1
Those with birthdays today: Much goes on behind the scenes this year. You might not choose to share everything with others, especially info on your love life and your finances. Select a group of experts that you trust and know well. You'll be unusually focused on your work and day-to-day life. Take good care of yourself physically. If single, you could hook up with someone who is emotionally unavailable. If attached, your relationship warms up if you get away for several weekends. CAPRICORN helps you plan.
