Horoscopes for Aug. 2, 2014

From page B11 | August 02, 2014 |

Mercury, the minister of communication, and Mars, the general of combat, do not at all agree about how this day should go. Mercury in Leo believes that communication needs to be out loud and theatrically presented to be understood. Mars in Scorpio believes that everybody already knows and subtlety is king. What is your experience?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Should you take on something big or something small? A small project would give you an easy win and build your confidence, but a big project will have long-term benefits.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don’t let yesterday’s success lull you into a state of satisfaction and comfort. Complacency will rob you of tomorrow’s success, which is far more interesting than you might have guessed.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). How can you stay objective? Start by reminding yourself about the benefits of objectivity: Distancing yourself from your problem allows you the perspective of wisdom.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Different people bring out different aspects of your personality. You feel empowered around certain people and intimidated around others. That’s natural and, actually, a sign of intelligence.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The action of the day will be executed beautifully with the right preparation. Here’s the order: observe, plan, breathe and then act. Don’t forget the “breathe” part. It’s crucial.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The tone of the day: inclusive. They won’t all seem to belong, but is that really for you to judge? Trust that the others in the mix will serve to sharpen you and make you better.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do you mind if they call your performance “wacky”? Maybe you’ll be honored by the review. You’ll do what only a few can really understand, but don’t let the numbers get you down. You’re a true original.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There is so much you might miss if you indulge in modesty and deflection. Be bold. Let things come to you. Let the sun hit you full in the face. Open your pockets and welcome the gold.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Do you still dislike a certain person? When they do something nice for you, is your first reaction suspicion? Your second reaction may be more accurate: the idea that you might have misjudged.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You haven’t always had a choice in the company you keep, but now you do, and a happy life depends on exercising this choice. The people you choose to surround yourself with will make all of the difference.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Entitlement is the disease of the new generation, but today you’ll only be able to beat them by joining them first. Assume you’re special and act accordingly.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are right to check your first impression by seeking more information, but in today’s case, it will reinforce what you already thought was true. Go with your gut.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your popularity will surge. Wanted by many, you won’t have time to show up everywhere you’re invited. Your choices will be crucial. Try not to play the politics. Instead, do what makes you happy. October and November represent times of action and change, especially in your domestic arrangement. Scorpio and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 20, 4, 10 and 13.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “What’s an ascendant in astrology?”

Your ascendant is more commonly referred to as your rising sign. “Pisces with Leo rising” means Leo is the ascendant. The ascendant is the constellation that was just rising on the eastern horizon at the moment of your birth. For those who believe in reincarnation, it is said that your ascendant in this life was your sun sign in your previous life. The Pisces in the example above was supposedly a Leo in a past life. Knowing your rising sign can give you a clue as to what sort of karmic lesson you might need to learn this time around here on Earth and what your true purpose might be. Because of this, your rising sign is equal in importance to your sun sign, so be sure to read horoscopes for both to get a more accurate astrological picture of your life. To learn your rising sign, you’ll need to get your astrological chart done. Many websites will do this for free. Just type into a search engine: “free astrological charts.” You’ll need to know the date, time and city of your birth to cast your chart.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Mary Louise Parker recently starred in “Behaving Badly” with Selena Gomez and Elisabeth Shue. The Leo star of “Weeds” was born when the sun was in Leo, but she has no other planets in the sign of entertainment. Her chart is filled with intellectual influences. Her moon and Venus in Gemini suggests a lightning-quick wit. Earth-sign influences point to a work ethic matched by few.
