Horoscopes for Aug. 8, 2014

By From page A9 | August 08, 2014

Yesterday Mars in Scorpio formed a trine with Neptune in Pisces, and today many will be contemplating the kismet that occurred and realizing it for the unlikely – or possibly miraculous – event it was. When you factor in that scientists suggest that the probability of your being born is one in 400 trillion, yesterday was a miraculous event indeed.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Crazy people with ludicrous ideas are all around. One of those weird notions is just nuts enough to work. So listen up, you never know from where your next inspiration will come.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Should you know what everyone else is planning on before you make your move? Naw. Trust your gut. You’ve reason to be confident about your route. Commit.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll gladly trade in your notions about how things should be in order to more fully and accept how things actually are. But if all that gets complicated, just send love. Love will heal misunderstandings.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may not know exactly where you belong, but you’re pretty sure you can find a better fit than you’ve experienced lately. Explore groups, schools and organizations until you hit that niche.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Repressed negativity? Unexpressed resentment? Express it now! An uninvolved third party or your private diary will be the sounding board you need. Once you get it off of your chest, you’ll feel energized.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are almost caught up to where you want to be productivity-wise. The final 10 percent is always the hardest, and you can blame that on the law of diminishing returns.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Today the young people will busy themselves in developing their relationship with the outside world. The older people will take all they’ve learned and develop their internal world. The middle-aged people will do a little of both.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As far as the heart’s demands go, yours is an uncomplicated scene now – the generous-spirited and big lovers appeal to you, and the rest hold no draw.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your secret beliefs can only benefit you if they are aligned in your favor. If not, you will be unhappily led to what you fear by your confirmation bias. Stay positive.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your attitude, not the circumstances at hand, will be what makes today’s business worth your while. When your gut says no, move quickly past. You can be open to possibilities without being open to all of the possibilities.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve been industrious and now your busy mind needs time to recharge. Lounge hard. Turn lounging into an art. After that, go to bed early so you can catch up on sleep.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your success equation is pretty straightforward. Seek out those who live the way you want to live and study them until you know what you need to know to do it, too.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Dare to put many new items on your agenda this solar year because you’re entering a cycle of firsts. First times are memorable times, and cosmic alignments will lace your early experiences with luck. This month brings a business deal. Next month brings a romantic commitment. November’s material reward will satisfy. Cancer and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 2, 24, 21 and 16.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Anything that bothers you about another person will lead you to know deeper levels of yourself. TAURUS: You live and love forward, but you don’t understand it really until you look at it backward. GEMINI: Take pride in what you’ve done. Why not? It can’t be changed! CANCER: Do you prefer being in a hotel or being a houseguest? Consider it strongly before planning your next visit. LEO: Sometimes you feel the others are adults, and you’re just going undercover. VIRGO: Don’t compete for another person’s attention. Take yourself out of the competition and wait until the moment when you can shine on your own. LIBRA: Be the first to approach. Your confidence will be like a spotlight that turns on and follows you when you walk away. SCORPIO: Having your full wits about you is important in making a good impression. So eliminate distractions and avoid giving yourself too many responsibilities beyond social fun. SAGITTARIUS: There will be those who don’t want you to leave. Maybe they are jealous or maybe needy, but they certainly will cling on. CAPRICORN: Great debates stir great passions. AQUARIUS: Domestic work will bring couples together. PISCES: When you’re on the prowl, all will know and respect your hunt.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The moon in bright Aquarius will be full on Sunday, reflecting the bighearted love of the Leo Sun. These opposite zodiac signs don’t always get along. It’s not always an easy road for them. But they strengthen each other and make one another better people for their differences and difficulties. This pairing is a karmic bond that helps each to grow to their full potential.
