Horoscopes for Aug. 10, 2014

By
From page D4 | August 10, 2014 |

The supermoon in Aquarius is the closest full moon of the year. This is happening in the part of the sky dedicated to philanthropy, and it’s an omen for the better angels of human nature. It’s a time to give generously to those in need, but not only that – it’s also a time to consider the larger implications of our actions before we do any taking.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). A need you have will continue its silent pleadings until it is fulfilled. This needn’t be a difficult one to figure out. Make it your priority, and suddenly the universe will seem to align in support.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Conflict is part of life and nothing to run from. Today’s conflict could benefit you further down the road if you commit to working through it to a mutually agreeable solution.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What is going on with the new generation? There was a time when they were rebellious and another time when they were indulged. Now the biggest problem is how entitled they feel. Your influence will help matters.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). To seize your opportunities, you must first recognize them. What is needed? How can you bend what’s available to meet the need? There’s a niche to be filled, and you’re just the one to do it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sparks ignite flames. Fire spreads. Away it goes – the small excitement, surrounded by amenable influences, turns into a blaze. The lesson here is: Be careful what you spark to.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Magical transformations can come from small motions. Don’t underestimate your powers of influence. People will be changed by what you teach or model today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You know that passions must be harnessed, and lately you’ve shown incredible self-control in this area. You may still long to send your passion into being, but you’re also a realist and will study the trajectory.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are many levels between casual and formal. You’ll navigate all of those gray areas and figure out what to wear, say and do and finally what to be as a result of all you’ve experienced.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s a Promethean fire delivering light to your situation today. You’ll think you know, and then, suddenly, you’ll SUPER-KNOW. You’ll be all over it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Communicating with the ones you love most will be an exercise in extreme listening: listening more than you talk, listening between the lines, listening with an open heart.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are observant and will intuit what is about to happen before it happens. So act on those hunches, even when doing so may seem a bit strange to the others around you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Any fool can force things along, but it takes a strong person to be gentle. Your gentle ways will open previously locked doors. You will be water, following the path of least resistance.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Relationships grow in tenderness, as this year brings lessons in patience, compassion and kindness. The next six weeks will also include some raucous fun and a walk or two on the wild side. Professional gains in September lead to more money. November is the time for lifestyle upgrades. Cancer and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 22, 14 and 6.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The moon is always moving and changing – new to full, new to full. It’s not only changing in size; it’s also changing in distance from Earth. This week begins on a bright note with the closest full moon of the year: a supermoon in Aquarius. Go outside and see it shine. Also, check inside yourself because it’s shining there, too – the Aquarian spirit of philanthropy, intelligence and an expanded worldview. This moon will be a reminder of how we’re all a part of the human family, and beyond that, we’re all earthlings sharing the planet with other earthlings. You may feel the responsibility that comes with being human more profoundly this week, and that’s a start toward the healing of the planet. But feeling alone is not enough. Act.

Venus switches from Cancer to Leo on Tuesday, turning up the heat on romance. No more staying in. In Leo, Venus wants to dress up, go where it’s noisy and populated, and show off. It’s a time of parties, dancing, clubs, laughter and romantic competition. Singles will make a big play for the one they want. Couples will put the necessary effort into keeping love ablaze.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Coupon queen Mama June Shannon rose to fame as the mother of Honey Boo Boo and remains a subject of fascination as she entertains the world with her quirky sense of fun. Shannon was born when the sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter were all in the sign of the entertaining cat. A Pisces moon suggests great powers of empathy and hidden artistic skills.
