Click here for Moonbeam's Month in Brief.
Wed Aug 1:
It's as though you're receiving too much information today and
you don't know what to listen to or think about first. Your mind is a
whirl of thoughts, impressions and ideas, making it almost impossible
to think straight or keep a grip on what's passing through your brain.
Write down anything important so you don't forget it. Some moderate
exercise may also help you to maintain some sort of control over your mind.
Dynamic colors are burgundy and silver.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 55.
Thu Aug 2:
You are likely to be caught up in details and forget to keep an
eye on the bigger picture today. This means you start to fret about
things that don't really matter while possibly ignoring something
that's much more pressing. If you're trying to get on with your work now,
you may have to cope with tiresome or trivial interruptions. Perhaps
you could shut yourself away from everyone else for a while?
Beneficial colors are salmon and silvery grey.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 68.
Fri Aug 3:
Put on your thinking cap today and you'll come up with some
really good ideas. You're at your most practical, rational and sensible
right now, yet without being tedious or humourless. If you're busy trying
to organize a holiday or some long-distance travel, this is an
excellent day for doing some research into the cost of fares or hotels,
or for simply making sure that everyone is doing what's expected of them.
Opportune colors are turquoise and lavender.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 63.
Sat Aug 4:
Green Eyed Monster
A certain person wants your attention and they won't be very
pleased if you appear to be withholding it. They may even accuse you of
losing interest in them or they could stage a jealous tantrum. Ho hum.
You should also be wary of loved ones who believe that the best way to
show that you care is to spend lots of money on them. Oh really? Give
them a hug instead - it's much cheaper.
Fortunate colors are deep purple and strawberry.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 71.
Sun Aug 5:
You'll excel if you're at work today, because you're being so
efficient and capable. This is good news if a boss or someone else in
authority is watching your progress because they'll be highly
impressed. If you've been considering switching jobs, you could hear
about something that seems eminently suitable now.
Favourable colors are pale gold and dark green.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 11.
Mon Aug 6:
You're very keen to make some changes or improvements right
now, but these won't go nearly as smoothly as you'd like. That's
because someone might feel threatened by what you're proposing and try to
stop you in your tracks, or your ideas may be over-ambitious and
therefore impractical. Beware of a tendency to believe that you're
automatically in the right over a moral issue.
Ideal colors are persimmon and charcoal grey.
Lucky numbers are 26 and 56.
Tue Aug 7:
Looking For Love?
If you're a solo Scorpio at the moment and looking for love,
you could find it through travel, further education, politics or religion
between now and early September with romantic Venus in delightful Cancer.
If you're off on vacation you could have a delicious holiday romance,
or you might lose your heart to your destination and yearn to return in
the very near future.
Lucky colors are aubergine and pale blue.
Lucky numbers are 20 and 46.
Wed Aug 8:
An old saying has it that a day without laughter is a day wasted,
and you'd certainly agree with that as Mercury turns direct in your
midheaven. Do your best to fit in as many chuckles and belly laughs as
possible by choosing funny companions. This is also a terrific day for
taking part in a group activity that unites you with some kindred spirits
or introduces you to some new friends.
Inspirational colors are sapphire blue and peach.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 33.
Thu Aug 9:
Fasten Your Seat Belts
Put on your tin hat, Scorpio. You're highly likely to have some
clashes with partners and older relatives today. The trouble is that
everyone is feeling moody and irritable, and they're also showing a
marked tendency to be bossy and argumentative. What starts out as a
simple conversation could descend into a row because everyone wants to
defend their opinion at all costs.
Expressive colors are chocolate brown and golden honey.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 56.
Fri Aug 10:
You won't want to waste any time in making progress with your
plans for the future. You may even have a strong sense of urgency that
pushes you forward and won't allow you to relax for long. Maybe it
would help to set yourself a reasonable deadline, so you have something
specific to aim for and you can pace yourself accordingly.
Auspicious colors are teal blue and lemon.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 10.
Sat Aug 11:
This is just the day for indulging yourself, preferably by
doing something you always enjoy or getting together with some special
people. You're easily moved now and find a spiritual or mystical
meaning in almost any event if it touches your heart. If you can spare
the time, a trip to a museum or art gallery will make you feel good.
Inspirational colors are arctic silver and bright red.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 66.
Sun Aug 12:
If you're a typical Scorpio you're good at handling money.
Well, this is certainly an excellent day for getting out your
calculator and doing some sums. This might mean catching up with your
accounts, paying bills or devising the budget for a forthcoming
enterprise. You'll also do well if you're telling others how to spend
their money wisely.
Beneficial colors are plum and banana.
Lucky numbers are 20 and 47.
Mon Aug 13:
You're all set for a fabulous day, Scorp. It's enjoyment,
entertainment and excitement all the way, especially if you jump at the
opportunities that come along. You might have a delightful flirtation
with someone, or possibly even fall head over heels with someone who's
too charismatic and intoxicating to resist.
Fortunate colors are cinnamon and cream.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 76.
Tue Aug 14:
Get together with friends at some point today because you'll
really enjoy their company. It's good to be with people who are on the
same wavelength as you and with whom you have plenty of things in common.
Something else that you'll enjoy now is being busy with a leisure pursuit
that drives all other thoughts out of your head.
Positive colors are jade and ochre.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 47.
Wed Aug 15:
Today's New Moon gives you further impetus and encouragement
regarding your career and long term ambitions, so you'll want to give
them all you've got during the coming fortnight. There could also be some
good news when at long last you start to receive some recognition for all
your recent hard work. It may not be why you slogged your guts out in the
first place but it will be good to know that your efforts haven't been in
vain or ignored.
Ambitious colors are wild strawberry and lincoln green.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 12.
Thu Aug 16:
The Natural Choice
If someone's looking for a confidant, you'll be the natural
choice. This might surprise you, especially if you hold this person in
high esteem or can't imagine them ever having any problems. Well, right
now they need to talk to you and you need to do what you can to help.
Make sure you listen carefully and don't be too hasty about reaching
conclusions or arriving at quick-fix solutions.
Ideal colors are mother of pearl and burgundy.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 71.
Fri Aug 17:
You strike a good balance between reality and optimism today,
so it's a brilliant chance to make plans and lay the foundations for
future projects. You're also full of common sense without it turning
you into a stick-in-the-mud. You'll do well if you can work by yourself
for a while, because that will help your mind to focus on whatever is
most important at the moment.
Dynamic colors are brilliant white and violet.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 16.
Sat Aug 18:
If you're in a rash and impulsive mood today, this isn't good
news if you're supposed to be toeing the line or behaving yourself.
Rather than living up to someone's high expectations of you, you may
deliberately do something that shows you in a bad light. What's going
on? If you want to rebel, and it seems that you do, try to do it in
Fortunate colors are primrose yellow and dark red.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 5.
Sun Aug 19:
A feisty and rebellious mood is making you outspoken and defiant,
and it won't go down very well. If you need to stand up to someone or
speak your mind, then so be it, but try not to say things that are
deliberately calculated to shock. If you aren't the one who's behaving
like this, it will be a loved one and you'll wonder how to handle th situation.
Calming colors are aqua and avocado.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 78.
Mon Aug 20:
Fix Or Replace
Examine all your appliances today and make sure that they're in
good working order. It might be a good idea to check that your car is
behaving itself or that your computer hasn't developed any strange
glitches. If you find that something's wrong, either get it mended or
replaced as soon as possible because you're bound to need it again soon.
Favorable colors are platinum and aubergine.
Lucky numbers are 32 and 7.
Tue Aug 21:
Unburden Your Heart
If you're currently grappling with a problem, or you need to
unburden your heart, cast about for a suitable confidant today. It will
be a great relief to be able to tell them what's wrong. Even if they
can't wave a magic wand and make everything OK again, you'll feel so much
better for having shared your thoughts with a sympathetic soul.
Inspirational colors are deep purple and dark gold.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 42.
Wed Aug 22:
Friends will play a big role in your life during the next four
weeks, so make sure you've got plenty of time for them. With the Moon
in your own sign now, you should get out your diary and start making lots
of dates and arrangements, especially if you haven't seen much of certain
friends recently. This is also the perfect opportunity to increase your
social circle if it's looking a bit thin, so consider joining a group
or organization that might contain some potential friends.
Expressive colors are brilliant white and jet black.
Lucky numbers are 19 and 64.
Thu Aug 23:
As Mars strides into your sign, this is a fantastic day for
getting involved in mind-stretching conversations that encourage you to
take a wider view of the world. Once you get started you won't want to
stop, especially if you're talking to people who stir up your imagination
and who are prepared to listen to your views. This energizing influence
arouses your competitive spirit and inspires you to be more aggressive,
perhaps even physically combative, than usual in weeks ahead.
Energizing colors are rich red and silver.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 11.
Fri Aug 24:
You need some gentle escapism today, especially if that means
staying at home and having some time to yourself. You might decide to
curl up on the sofa with a good book and a bar of chocolate, or to listen
to some favourite music while lying in the bath. You could also be
tempted to buy yourself something that makes you feel safe and contented.
Favorable colors are mango and pistachio.
Lucky numbers are 23 and 47.
Sat Aug 25:
The next couple of weeks are an ideal time to give some thought
to your career and anything else that boosts your self-esteem. If your
ego has taken quite a hammering lately, now's the time to consider how
you can raise it again, as the Moon's North Node enters your sign. You'll
also excel at speaking in public and taking charge of large groups of people.
Uplifting colors are peacock blue and bright yellow.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 19.
Sun Aug 26:
Your emotions have the upper hand today, influencing your actions
and speech. As a result, you could get quite heated over things that mean
a lot to you. Be aware of a possible tendency to try to get your own
way or to believe that your needs should be satisfied before anyone
else's. If you can control such impulses, then all will be well and it
will be a good day.
Beneficial colors are olive and burnt orange.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 41.
Mon Aug 27:
Expect The Unexpected
Expect the unexpected today and you won't be disappointed. For
a start, a partner could keep you on your toes with something you weren't
expecting or a surprising announcement. Alternatively, you could be
gripped by restless or impulsive urges that are screaming for expression.
Handle them with care, or they could cause havoc.
Ideal colors are tan and navy.
Lucky numbers are 25 and 78.
Tue Aug 28:
You don't have much energy today and all you really want to do is
to slump in a comfortable chair and do as little as possible. It will
certainly do you good to have a break now and you'll struggle to do
anything every energetic. Ideally, you should spend some time with
loved ones, perhaps with them waiting on you hand and foot. Now that's
more like it!
Harmonious colors are pale pink and pale grey.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 45.
Wed Aug 29:
Be careful because you're rather subjective today, being quite
likely to make snap judgements about people based purely on what they
look or sound like. Logic won't enter into it. As a result, this isn't
the day to get involved in a sensitive discussion because you simply
won't be able to manage it without getting incensed about the smallest
Fortunate colors are cream and caramel.
Lucky numbers are 23 and 56.
Thu Aug 30:
Dragon's Head Enters Scorpio
Today marks the beginning of a very important new phase for
you, as the Moon's node (the cosmic Dragon's Head) heads into your sign
for 18 months. This can and should be a period to gain a much better
understanding of yourself and to explore ways you can become even better.
It will force you to throw out what is wasteful and to abandon
unsuccessful situations, replacing them with something more solid and
useful, especially in terms of what your deepest relationships mean to you. More on the Moon's Nodes.
Fortunate colors are deep purple and rose red.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 7.
Fri Aug 31:
If you're currently working on a creative or artistic project,
think how proud you'll feel if you can put the finishing touches to it
during the coming fortnight. You'll then have the confidence to start
something that's even more ambitious and which stretches your talents
still further. This will also be a good time to smooth over any
problems with a loved one that have been bugging you recently.
Ideal colors are teal blue and burgundy.
Lucky numbers are 18 and 70.
