Happy birthday for Thursday, Aug. 30, 2018!

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19) — HHHH Communication flourishes. Oddly enough, others could decide to make themselves vulnerable and speak about their dreams and/or fears. You might gain a great deal of understanding and empathy as a result of their openness. Tonight: Be spontaneous.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — HHH Some of you might give thought to calling out from work today. Whether you have been pushing too hard or have a situation that is depleting you, you probably need some time off. You will see the difference in how you feel tomorrow. Tonight: Share some news with a favorite person.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — HHHH You smile, and others respond. You have reason to feel good about your friendships. A sense of understanding emanates from one person to the next. You might be approaching responsibilities with an easier and lighter tone than usual. Tonight: Nap, then decide.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) — HHH Your caring personality emerges — except when you feel defensive. You might find yourself in a manipulative power play with someone you usually count on. You can shrug off the incident, though that is not the desired response. Tonight: Visit with an older relative.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — HHHH Today seems to be a good day for you, but understand that it could be offensive to less upbeat signs. Share news with a loved one, and listen to what he or she has to say. You will see that what ails one person might not bother another. Tonight: Start the weekend early.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — HHHH A discussion might be ongoing; however, you need to see it to the end. Closing off the topic might take more skill than you had anticipated. Give the other party some time before you visit again. Letting go will be a lot easier that way. Tonight: Make a long-distance call first.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — HHHH Your lightness and easygoing nature draw a loved one in even closer. If you want to have a more intimate relationship, use this moment for a serious talk. Note that you have a tendency to overindulge, and be careful when out and about. Tonight: Spend quality time with a friend.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — HHHH You have a strong and effective way of clearing out some responsibilities. When you have a conversation with a loved one, you might feel as though you want to stop it short. Use your self-discipline to get through a problem. Tonight: Speak your mind, and others will listen.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — HHHH Your creativity emerges, allowing you to handle a child or loved one in a more dynamic way. The conversation might feel as though you are being manipulated. Refuse to allow this to happen by distancing yourself. You will be better off as a result. Tonight: Off to the gym.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — HHHH Your playfulness rarely emerges in the workplace; however, today you cannot help yourself. Whether a humorous situation unfolds or you simply feel less burdened by recent responsibilities, others enjoy this lightness. Tonight: Kick up your heels and relax.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — HHHHH Do not stop yourself from reaching out to others. Someone might need you to make the first move. If you decide to make an effort to mend fences, you will discover that everything works out well. Don’t take what everyone shares as fact. Tonight: Make it an early night.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) — HHHH Others seek you out. Although you might have a lot on your plate, you will manage to fit in everyone who needs your help. Stay open-minded. Do your best to avoid a cantankerous friend who seems to put you in an either-or situation. Tonight: Surrounded by friends.
