For Monday, Aug. 17:
This year, your projects move forward because of a willingness to assume a low profile. Take frequent timeouts, whether you just walk or do yoga. If you are attached, you wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to your significant other. If you are single, check out potential suitors, as they could be emotionally unavailable. Cancer sees right through you.
