For Sunday, Aug. 5:
You often confront difficult situations in which you feel you are in a catch-22. Learn to give up rigid ways of thinking this year. Start seeking different kinds of solutions. Take the best of many ideas and combine them. If you are single, you might have difficulty opening up. If you are attached, spend more time one on one with your sweetie (and this doesn't mean watching television!). PISCES understands and adores you.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
Aries (March 21-April 19)
- ** Communication tests Aries' pioneering spirit. What you have come to count on could become a problem. Stick with it, and find a friend who can help. Tonight: Get a good night's sleep.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
- ** Financial matters and responsibilities test the Bull's patience. You might want to tell someone where to go. Initiate discussions to clear the air. Tonight: Where your friends are.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
- ** The ever-diverse and witty Gemini could be tested to the limit. You actually might clam up under another's manipulation or pressure. The best thing you can do is open up discussions and work through a problem. Tonight: A must visit or appearance.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
- *** How you feel in the morning could greatly change by afternoon. A tip that could impact your finances needs to be weighed, as does an investment. Your Cancerian sensitive ways mixed with insight and intuitiveness help you home in on what you want. Tonight: Let your mind wander.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
- *** You could be disappointed by another's behavior. Be the open and sunny Lion and discuss feelings. You quickly clear the air and resolve a problem. Tonight: Quality time with a loved one.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- ** Others prove to be testy. Nothing you do this morning will settle a problem. Give up nurturing others, for now. Nurture yourself. Respond to overtures in the afternoon. Tonight: Delight in another's attention.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
- *** A misunderstanding or another's revocation of plans upsets the morning. By afternoon, you'll relax. Getting together with friends helps you clear your mood. Join in a favorite game or sport. Tonight: Start thinking in terms of work.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
- ** You and a partner could get stuck over a financial matter. It seems as if never the twain shall meet. Creativity surges forth when you help someone open up and talk. Tonight: Add that extra spark to a relationship.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
- ** A problem comes to a head early. Your naturally upbeat Sag mood plunges as you feel a need for control. Your best bet is to reach out for someone who will help you gain perspective. Tonight: How 'bout a barbecue?
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
- ** The Goat wakes up on the wrong side of the bed. Everything might seem like an effort! Let a loved one coax you out of bed or bring you your first cup of coffee. Discussions help you understand your reactions better. Tonight: Bathe in another's caring.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
- *** Conflict arises between a desire and a relationship. What seems like an either-or situation can be resolved if Aquarius responds to another's efforts to talk. You can't control yours or anyone else's thoughts, but you can be caring anyway. Tonight: Treat someone to dinner.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
- *** The Fish could get caught in another's struggle if he's not careful. Others might ask you to take sides. Explain what you see in the most neutral terms possible, and express understanding for both parties. Tonight: Ask for what you want.
