For Tuesday, Aug. 3, 2004:
Those with birthdays today: Risking both emotionally and financially could backfire this year. Play it more conservatively than in the past. You often feel tired and dragged down, but you are eliminating what no longer works in your life, if you continue to be honest with yourself. A new 28-year life cycle will begin in a year and a half. Don't drag with you anything that doesn't work. If single, you have always met people easily, but especially this year. You might become a couple rather quickly. If attached, you need to share more projects and time together. PISCES helps you get to the bottom line.
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)
- *** You choose to shut down, which actually might be a great idea. Put your best foot forward and observe, listen and study. You'll gain keen insight. Tonight: Whatever pleases you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
- **** A serious discussion could weigh you down, but perhaps you need to look at the long-term ramifications of a situation. Know what you want. Network away. Others will respond. Tonight: Where the crowds are.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
- *** You feel that far too much responsibility is dropped on your shoulders. Still, you decide to go with it, because ultimately you will gain professionally or financially. Tonight: Work late.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
- **** Others desperately need your perspective. Be willing to explore options without judging others' ideas. You break patterns as a result. Tonight: Think "vacation."
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
- ** You might not have any choice but to deal with one key person. You actually might like what comes down. Express your creativity and willingness. Tonight: Be two rather than one.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- *** Let go of your need to control, and smile through this particular situation. Someone finds you unusually attractive. Be aware of your impact here. Tonight: Go along with plans.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
- *** A boss or superior makes demands. Do not close this person off; rather, explain why you are focused on something other than him or her. Detach. Tonight: Relax with a favorite person.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
- **** Your creativity comes out, but so does your good sense. You know when enough is enough. Tonight: Put on your dancing shoes.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
- ** Deal with personal matters first. Keep your lips sealed, and let others babble away. A smile means neither yes nor no. Smile. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
- **** Just because you get a negative reaction first doesn't mean anything. Detach and understand a key associate. Tonight: At your haunt.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
- ** Your finances could be uncomfortable to deal with, but they must be handled. You could be dragging, as you feel worn out by everything that is happening. Tonight: Fun can be inexpensive.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
- **** You can change what a partner feels through easy talks. You might be stymied by a child or sweetie. Let go and don't worry. Be where you make a difference. Tonight: It's your call.
