Horoscopes for Aug. 6, 2014

From page B5 | August 06, 2014 |

Mercury in Leo urges us to learn and respect the various signals people communicate in. “With a stop light, green means ‘go’ and yellow means ‘slow down.’ With a banana, however, it is quite the opposite. Yellow means ‘go,’ green means ‘whoa, slow down,’ and red means ‘where the heck did you get that banana?'” — Mitch Hedberg

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll set it right today – a past wrong, or a mess that needed clearing, or something that was overlooked – you’ll make it right and move quickly on in clean karma.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Life will seem to assess the strength level you possess and set up the perfect dumbbell for you to lift. You don’t mind the challenge because it keeps you strong.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Jealousy can be helpful if used properly. It teaches you what you want. When you get those pangs, take it as a good sign – you too can have what you want. Now what do you have to do to make it happen?

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you look back and note your failings, you’ll be filled with self-doubt. If you look back and note your accomplishments, you’ll be filled with smug arrogance. Don’t look back; look ahead.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Artistic happenings bring you together with interesting new friends and future business partners. But in the end, things have to make dollars and sense for you to invest further.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you have the sneaking suspicion that someone is just waiting for your signal to move, you’re right. There is big interest in you and/or your work. They are biding their time, trying to figure out the right approach.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do you eat last and clean up first? Do you listen way more than you talk? Do you have the oldest phone in your family? Your self-sacrificing style may not always be fun, but you are deeper and richer for it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). They accept and enjoy you, but that doesn’t make you alike. When the group is pessimistic, you’ll be hopeful. You’re not trying to be contrary, that’s just how you roll.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Sometimes the best adventures don’t happen out in the big wide world, but rather they unfold inside of you. There are valuable treasures to behold as you bravely explore your inner world.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). How much joy can you feel? That’s the challenge of the day – pack in the good emotions. It’s mostly a matter of focus. Keep giving your attention to the things that are going right.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s said there are no boxes strong enough for the weight of some memories. Your friendship has a way of making heavy things lighter. Around you, they feel they can drop their weight off for a while and have fun.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have faith, love and freedom. Act on what you believe, give it all and exercise your rights and privileges to the full extent. This one has the potential for an A-plus day.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ve new vitality going into this solar year, and you are ready to create one exhilarating experience after another. Lucrative opportunities come this month, and again in November, as you will be in a unique position to supply what many others need. December heals a rift. Lifestyle improvements happen in January. Capricorn and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 16, 20, 31, 44 and 25.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My sisters and brothers never remember my birthday. I’m a Cancer in my 40s. I’ve always been the most thoughtful person in my family. I remember birthdays, anniversaries, anniversaries of deaths, graduations – you name it. Only this year, I’m going to remember these dates as always, but I’m not going to do anything about it. No cards or gifts. Because no one cares about me, and why should I bother with them? On a related note, I am the only one of my siblings who doesn’t have children. They leave me out because of this, I’m certain of it.”

Cancer is a nurturing sign and as sensitive as they come. It’s also the sign of mothers. I think that even though you don’t have children, your attention to your sibling’s important events is part of your mothering instinct. And everyone knows that people take advantage of mothers. Their love is so bottomless that it can never be returned as fully as it is given. Your siblings are too busy with their children to spend the same care as you do on your “children” – them. Take a break if you must, but know that your kindness is a gesture of love and shouldn’t rely on the dividends it returns.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Pop art leader and cultural icon Andy Warhol remains among the most influential figures in contemporary art, inspiring creativity from that great factory in the sky. The Leo’s instinct to entertain, bemuse and provoke coincided with his natal Sun, Mercury, Venus and Neptune in Leo. The moon and Uranus in Aries brought the warrior spirit and an element of passion, youth and surprise to his picture.
