Today’s horoscopes -Sunday, August 13


ARIES (March 21-April 19). You wake up with a vague idea about what you need to do with this day then slowly start to home in on the one thing that’s going to make a difference. The key to success: your ability to be objective.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s said that a man is only as honest as his opportunities. You’ll prove the saying wrong today as you do what’s right even though it would be very easy not to. A clear conscience is all you’ll gain, but that’s no small reward.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll find your happiness builds with small conveniences and pleasures that occur daily, none of which is so notable as the pleasure inside a certain person’s loving gaze.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It has been suggested by the ancients that man’s miseries come from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone. Well, you can and will do just that. You’ll discover truth and derive joy there.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you love someone, you want to fill that person’s life with sweetness. You want to hear her say, ”Wow!” or know that he’s thrilled. You want to hold on to the tender moments. How are you going to create the next one?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Pleasure can serve as an anchor to the moment. It keeps you from skipping ahead in your mind and missing the good parts. Tune in to your senses. The pleasure is there. All you have to do is take it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You value love, loyalty, fidelity, beauty, truth and more. Courage is the foundation that allows these other values to come to life. Without courage, none of the others are possible.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are some things you simply cannot get ready for. There are too many possible variables. Since you don’t know what’s going to be asked of you or how you’re going to feel about it, the only way to get ready is to begin.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re good enough; you are enough; and you are deserving of a full happy life. Anyone who doesn’t seem to support these beliefs doesn’t belong in your day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Believing someone will change won’t make it so. If you’re going to invest in a belief, invest in the belief that acceptance heals. The only change you control is your own, and that’s found through acceptance, too.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It may seem like the thing you most want is difficult to get any momentum toward achieving. As it is with anything stuck, you must figure out where it’s caught and do whatever you can to leverage, grease or force it free.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re improving. It takes a while for your efforts to become results that everyone can see, but people will start to notice. Each compliment will fan the flames, inspiring you to reach your ultimate goal.
