A baby born today has a Sun in Leo and a Moon in Libra.

Happy birthday for Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2015:

This year you discover that you are full of energy -- much more than usual. It will be imperative that you have a good outlet for all this vitality. If not, you will find that you easily could get into all sorts of conflicts. Make sure to get plenty of exercise. If you are single, you could meet someone who brings to light how possessive you can be. Try to understand what is making you feel insecure. If you are attached, the two of you often get into conflicts that you believe are important but really aren't. Remember, you are with the one you love. Libra loves to be around you.

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