For Wednesday, Aug. 2
Those with birthdays today: You often understand what others don't. Having others not listen and toss boomerangs in your path could be relatively frustrating. Knowing when to pull back and say enough is important. You could appear cold and think that key people are deceiving you. But you might be experiencing an issue with your perception. Have you put this person on a pedestal? A little sprinkle of reality could prevent disappointment. If you are single, a relationship waves hello this year. You see life with renewed vigor. If you are attached, your bond warms up with care and attention. Let down your barriers. You could be unduly stiff. SCORPIO reads you cold.
