For Friday, Aug. 29, 2003. Those with birthdays today:

You discover new ways of expressing your talent and potential. As a result, you could easily gain financially. If you are single, a relationship will knock on your door. Are you ready? It could happen as soon as fall. If you are attached, schedule as much quality time as possible with your significant other, which will improve your relationship.

The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
