For Tuesday, Aug. 15
Those with birthdays today: Others look up to you. Whether you like it or not, you are an authority figure this year. Accept your role with grace, also understanding that many people are confused or see life differently than you. High energy and a willingness to give define your presence. If you are single, you often meet people when you are out and about. You will have quite a playing field. Choose your sweetie with care. If you are attached, your relationship will benefit if you become a little less demanding and domineering. TAURUS can be challenging.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
*** You feel as if a restraining order has come into your planetary life and is holding you back. Soon you will act, and the Force will be with you! Tonight: Don't push yourself, or anyone else.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
**** Someone could hold you back or rain on your parade. Use your innate resourcefulness and strength. Others bend to the incomparable endurance of the Bull. Head down the path you want. Let others get out of your way. Tonight: Say yes.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
*** Intellectualize rather than act. Ponder different approaches, solutions and ideas. You might not encounter a receptive audience. Can you use their comments constructively? Tonight: Get as much R and R as possible.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
**** Aim for what you want, but curb any financial commitments, as you might be extravagant and/or expenses might be a bit too high. Don't feel intimidated. Tonight: Find fun and friends.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
*** You could come off a lot sterner than you realize. Think through a decision with care. Your fiery temperament might feel hedged in or as if you cannot get others to see the light. Don't worry. Tonight: Out late.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
**** If facts don't coincide with what you know or think, do more research. You could be a bit overwhelmed. Use your creativity. Test out your ideas on others. Tonight: Curl up with a book or movie.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
**** Dedicate your attention to what counts and what is important. You might feel that someone is pushing you. Rather than distance yourself, just work with the energy. Tonight: Togetherness counts.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
***** Know when to let others run the show, like today. You will find life much easier as a result. Bucking trends is a waste of energy. Matters involving home and family might not be as you see them. Tonight: Out and about.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
*** Dedicate yourself to clearing your desk and to getting must-do's done. You are not able to see situations with your normal clarity. Knowing that, make no major decision. Tonight: Keep a relaxed pace.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
**** You are full of ideas and willing to back them up with action. Risk-taking still could be a problem, as some of your opinions or facts are off. Seek out other opinions. Tonight: Midweek fun.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
*** You might be confused or might not be getting the whole story. Why this haze is occurring might not be as important as recognizing that it is. Avoid major decisions until you have gained more insight. Tonight: Head home.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
**** Say what you think, but don't make assumptions about what others are feeling. Reading others' motives could be a mistake, as on some level you could be seeing what you want to see. Tonight: Chat with a friend.
