Horoscopes for Aug. 9, 2014

By
From page B11 | August 09, 2014 |

On this eve of the altruistic full moon in Aquarius, it’s important to stand by your beliefs and act on them. The Leo sun chimes in with a bit of practical advice though: unless the moral victory is accompanied by an actual win, recognized by all, possibly with a trophy involved, it won’t count for much.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s been said that a friend helps you move and a real friend helps you move the body. While the situation you’ll clean up today isn’t exactly a change of location or a murderous cleanup, it will show you whom you can trust.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The potential for humor maybe something people are born with, but it takes cultivation as well. You’ll cross foils with a rapier wit and sharpen yours in the process.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It takes heart to stand by your neighbors or your home team but it takes a bigger heart to consider the world to be your country and behave accordingly, taking a stand for mankind.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sometimes adventure happens when you seek it, but today it happens because you didn’t. Where the plan fails, the adventure will start. Take along a Sagittarius for luck.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your emotional landscape will have beautiful colors; just don’t be afraid of going through those feelings. Gentleness is strong. Tenderness is wild. Whatever feeling you are having, it will pass like weather.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your environment will stream endless information at you, but it’s the answers that come from your own mind that organize it. You are the one who creates a purpose out of all this.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can’t tend to everything at once, but you can juggle. Handle the business and lob the personal into the air. Handle the personal and bounce up that business. If you drop those balls, just pick them back up and try again.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do the simple thing perfectly because it leads you down the path of self-discipline. With great self-discipline you will eventually be able to do difficult things easily.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may be unaware of your emotional weaponry even as you use it. This stuff is engrained at such an early age. It will occur to you to examine your arsenal in the light of your current maturity.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Audition new hobbies like you would potential dates or job applicants. Come up with your criterion and make sure the endeavor matches up on a few levels before you pursue – because once you’re in, you’re really in.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can support another without agreeing with that person. If it’s rubbing against your grain, say so. Your input doesn’t have to concur with the others to be valuable.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have the freedom to do what you want, but sometimes you feel even freer in a structured context. Maybe it’s what someone else wants, but there will still be room to find yourself.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll be up against stiff competition and win this month. In September your income depends on expansion and outreach. A small jest or personable moment will connect you profoundly with someone dear in October. Love will carry your heart with wings into 2015. You’ll outgrow an old habit in January. Aquarius and Libra. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 22, 50 and 44.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Sagittarius, and very confused about who I can trust these days. Many people have let me down – people I thought were wise. I know there is much that I don’t know about life, and I want to learn. But how do I know who to follow?”

Sagittarius, yours is a curious sign and you are likely to remain a seeker your whole life. Perhaps this Arab proverb could help you figure out from whom you can learn and whom you should avoid:

If you meet a man who doesn’t know

And who doesn’t know he doesn’t know

He is a fool. Avoid him.??

If you meet a man who doesn’t know,

And who knows he doesn’t know,

He is a child. Teach him.??

If you meet a man who knows, ?

And who doesn’t know he knows, ?

He is asleep. Wake him up.??

If you meet a man who knows, ?

And who knows he knows, ?

He is a wise man. Follow him.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Sun, Mercury and Venus in Leo suggest a natural inclination toward the entertainment world which has embraced her since childhood, but whether she’s being nominated for acting awards or riding the pop charts, Anna Kendrick maintains a workman-like ethic, letting none of her success go to her head. The moon in Aquarius suggests that philanthropy is what keeps Kendrick grounded.
