For Monday, Aug. 8
Those with birthdays today: This year, you need to stop and think about your blessings more often, as you could become negative if you aren't careful. A child or a creative project is constantly changing, forcing you to adjust. You have a way of making others feel comfortable around you. You also might spend a lot of money on yourself or someone you love. Others adore you, but often don't see situations as clearly as you do. If you are single, you could be in love with love - be careful. If you are attached, be generous and indulgent of your sweetie's foibles. VIRGO makes a great accountant.
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)
*** Your strength and self-discipline need to come through right now. Others can be distracting, spurting out unrelated facts or ideas. Adjust your thinking. Focus counts. Tonight: Say yes to an invitation.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
**** You might greet the world with a smile, but others seem out of sorts or need to feel in control. Don't get caught up in the game. Focus on the end results. Tonight: Head home early.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
*** Basics count, as you shall see. If you want to work from home, do so. You do best when you close the door and focus. Not everything is as it seems, as you will discover. Tonight: Take it easy.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
**** What you say certainly draws reactions, especially from those in your day-to-day life. Eventually, you will be able to settle a situation that could revolve around money and security. You need it. Tonight: Visit with a friend.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
*** Emphasize the positive, and you will be able to move through this day with ease. You have a lot to offer, which you might not realize. You admire others' talents. It is time to recognize yours. Tonight: Nap and then decide.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
**** You have great ideas. Implementing them might be a different story. You find that those you have counted on are aloof or into their own needs and projects. Tonight: Add more fun into your life.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
*** Take your time brainstorming and daydreaming. Often, how you see a situation could be very different from the way others do. Listen to different perceptions. Tonight: You get a second wind.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
**** Meetings prove to be fertile territory for networking and sharing ideas. Be very careful with a financial commitment. Listen to feedback without taking comments personally. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
*** Others are demanding. The real question is how to deal with all the demands. You might be provoked and become sharp-tongued. Would it not be better to say a polite no? Tonight: Handle work or visit with an older friend.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
***** Your ability to read between the lines might force you to step back and think. You could be stunned by the realizations that come forward. Be careful with money agreements. Tonight: Do some research.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
*** You might not mean to add confusion, but you do an excellent job of just that. You laugh, and so does another. Friends might be acting strangely, especially one particular friend. Let go and relax. Tonight: Relax and give up control.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
**** Allow others to run with the ball, or you could mess up a project or two. Listen to what you need to do in order to handle a personal matter. Remain pleasant and agreeable. Tonight: Dinner out.
