For Sunday, Aug. 5:
This year you frequently look at the big picture, and you’ll make better decisions. Curb a tendency to overdo things or to overindulge yourself. If you are single, you will want to meet Mr. or Ms. Right Now. If you are attached, sometimes you are too caught up in your own feelings, and you lose your self-discipline.
