A baby born today has a sun and moon in Leo.

Happy birthday for Friday, Aug. 14, 2015:

This year you experience a new beginning in a chosen area of your life. You might feel as if you have waited a long time to get to this point. Be more clear and direct in how you deal with a personal matter. You need to open up discussions with others. If you are single, you can't seem to clear out your admirers fast enough. You'll find that a certain connection will grow into more, given some time. If you are attached, the two of you will experience more romance, somewhat like you did when you first met. Be open about your feelings, and your sweetie will respond in kind. A fellow Leo likes your flare and style.

The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5 dynamic, 4 positive, 3 average, 2 so-so, 1 difficult

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
