HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2009: This year, the quality of your daily life becomes an issue. Others might not agree, and often you get strange reactions. If single, don’t play games with yourself or others when determining if someone is “right” or “good” for you. If attached, if you want easier interactions, let your significant other have more say. Aquarius could challenge you to think more deeply.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• Unexpected gains come from leading. Use your sixth sense to make what you deem necessary happen. Open up to others, especially about a last-minute reservation about an about-to-launch new project.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) •••• Get to the bottom of what is going on behind the scenes, no matter what you approach today. For some, it could be confusion about where someone is coming from.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• Keep conversations ongoing. At the end of the day, your perspective will change and might not be comfortable. Forge ahead with new knowledge and be willing to step out on your own.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••••• Eye the big picture, opening up the playing field. Share your insights with others, though you might need to take ownership of a great idea.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• You are inspired and on top of your game. You wonder why others dump their work on you. Say “no” when necessary.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) •••• Your creativity surges no matter what you do. Know when enough is enough when dealing with a child or loved one. By ending the dialogue, you are taking a stand.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) •••• You might be revamping an idea or doing it differently than anticipated. Don’t minimize your role in a project.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••••• Keep communication moving. A changing situation is reflective of the possibilities. Allow what seems like an off-the-wall idea to be part of the mix.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••• Review your expenses and keep your budget in compliance with the real figures. Listen to news that follows when you start loosening up your stance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• You suddenly become pivotal in a rapidly changing situation. Accept and work with the unexpected. The faster you incorporate these jolts into your life, the better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) •••• Whether you agree or not is irrelevant. You will have time to handle the situation or turn certain basic ideas around.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) •••• Understand what is going on behind the scenes, and then work for a good solution. Meetings, associates and enabling supporters take up a lot of time, but are necessary.
