For Thursday, Aug. 28, 2003. Those with birthdays today: This year, you often trigger action without realizing it. You could be heard to say, "How did that happen?" A good question, as you might not always be in touch with your feelings. If single, sometimes you might find it challenging to get along with others, but trust that this year someone special will enter your life. If attached, your relationship will head in a new direction, though you might need to cater a bit more to your partner.
The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
