For Saturday, Aug. 5

Those with birthdays today: Listen to those around you this year. You might not always find their ideas practical, but they will be worthwhile for the most part. Know when to head in your own direction, incorporating others’ good will. Learn the art of having others think your ideas are theirs. Unity and success will head your way. Your ability to read between the lines will make a difference. If you are single, romance can be quite enchanting and dynamic. Just open the door and your heart. If you are attached, your relationship takes you in a new direction, especially if you respond to your sweetie’s dynamic energy. SAGITTARIUS helps you lighten up.
