Horoscopes for Aug. 1, 2014

By
From page A9 | August 01, 2014 |

Mercury in Leo can get overly dramatic, but often there is wisdom in the hissy fit. And considering that we’re all hurtling through the universe at thousands of miles per hour at this very moment, it’s no wonder we like to feel that we’re in control of something. Revel in the things that you can control now.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Whatever you focus on, don’t do so too intently. By emphasizing one part of your life too much, you deny the other parts. The day calls for gentleness, reason and moderation.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The power of your work will be enormous – believe it. Once you believe and commit to that idea, it will be easier for you to follow through. The heavy work will seem light.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some clouds come as fog, adding mystery and strangeness to your experience. Some come as storms and others as light rain. Today’s “clouds” are puffy shape-shifters that seem to form exclusively for your entertainment.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are people who come alive when they are the center of attention and then go mentally slack when they are not. Steer clear of them today because you need someone alert to bounce your ideas off of.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe you’re an extrovert, but solitude is still a golden state. When you’re alone, you can think about the things you might have missed with others around. Much will come to mind.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Too much loud will wear you out; whereas, too much soft provokes anger. What are they saying? Whispers are inherently violent to those not on the giving or receiving end.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have many interests, but life keeps getting in the way of pursuing them. Don’t let life bully you! There really is time to do what you want to do. Cut back, carve out time, set boundaries – just a few ideas.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are many methods for getting yourself to walk the straight and narrow path, but fear of what happens to those who stray may be the best protection from temptation around.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know better than to act like you need the money. If they think you need the money, they’ll order you around willy-nilly. That’s why you’ll bring thoughtfulness and stature to the equation instead.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Consider that the work you do today very well may be a work of art. Regardless of how many others are in a similar position doing a similar job, you’re doing it better.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Is life supposed to be so serious? The debate is out, and you’ll make an impressive case for the answer “no.” Making people laugh is one of your top joys, and you’ll do it so well.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Waking up early in the day is the mark of successful people, and there are those who pride themselves on waking up earlier than everyone else. The early lifestyle requires planning, and tonight you’ll make the plan.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll stick to your principles – that is, after you’ve examined them, jettisoned the ones that no longer seem right and adopted a few new ones, too. Yes, this is a year of change at fundamental levels. Education over the next three months will prove invaluable, though it will lead to a substantial income increase. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 4, 33, 28 and 16.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Greed is a disaster. If you sense that someone is greedy, banish that person from your love life, even if the thing they are greedy for is you. TAURUS: You would throw away your emotional baggage if you weren’t so worried that someone else might come along and pick it up. GEMINI: You’re not only going to solve a problem in your relationship; you’re going to erase the memory that such a problem ever existed. CANCER: Yours is not an easy relationship this week. There are all kinds of behavioral codes that will come into play. LEO: If you feel oppressed in your relationship, this is your time to stand up and rebel. VIRGO: Anyone caught in a lie will not be believed thereafter, even if they happen to be telling the truth. LIBRA: You’ll enjoy your own company and conversation. SCORPIO: When you have nothing to worry about, you’re more loving. SAGITTARIUS: What is there to do but chalk your romantic mistakes up to experience? CAPRICORN: Silence is beautiful, and as is true of most beauty, it is also easily misread. AQUARIUS: Having plenty is sometimes a curse. Be careful not to take the love in your life for granted. PISCES: You’re gaining a new perspective on that last love. Most of it was an adventure, right?

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The moon in the sign of partnership for the lion’s share of the weekend and the sun in the sign of the cat make for a strong fascination between the two L’s of the zodiac: Libra and Leo. Libra is the perfect tamer for the wild fire-sign passion of Leo. Libra is tasteful and considerate, artistic and appreciative, but also refined and discerning. There is a great deal of respect between these two signs.
