For Wednesday, Aug. 4, 2004:
Those with birthdays today: You've got what it takes to get what you want this year. Your knee-jerk reactions work like a charm. Don't cause problems where there are none. Come late fall, your happiness spills over and draws even more people to you. Foreigners could play a part in your year. Be open to other styles. If single, you might hook up with someone quite exotic or different. If attached, a trip could be an eye-opening experience for the two of you. You also might take a special class in yoga or massage together. ARIES pushes you to risk.
