Sunday, Aug. 12, 2012: This year you zero in on what you feel is important. As a result, you generally will succeed. Your fiery energy and serious attitude mix together well and carry you to a home run. If you are single, you will gain just by extending your horizons and meeting new people. You easily could meet someone through a friend. If you are attached, the two of you need to spend more time with each other.
