Horoscope For those of us born on: August 3
Happy Birthday! The months ahead will start with a unique set of challenges. You will need to be firm with yourself to keep yourself grounded. Romance will take a very positive turn by the late summer, as you will know exactly what you want, although the notion of commitment may not appeal. Work is likely to dominate through the winter months: getting immersed in the Christmas fun is a must, but you might just require a gentle prod from a friend or relative! The post New Year period focuses on self development, with steady improvements showing around May, but by the end of the year you can expect big things in terms of school or work and travel!
