Wed Aug 1:
Is there any chance that you-know-who has been taken over by
aliens? Weird as that may sound, right now it seems a distinct
possibility judging by the strange things they're doing and saying.
However, there could be some logic in their actions, even though it's
escaping you at the moment. So try to go with the flow, be as open minded
as possible and not make preconceived judgements about what this person

atmosphere is fraught and irritable. If you're trying to toe the line
you'll be annoyed about it, and may unconsciously say the wrong thing.
Don't get bogged down in details if you're sorting out paperwork or
filling in forms; do your best to remain objective, especially in the
career environment, or public domain even if you are not on a career
curve. If the worst comes to the worst, have a break from what you're
doing and clear your head.

you can spare the time, but can you? It's highly likely that you've got
other claims on your time, in which case you'll have to be very tactful

Wed Aug 8:
Life's A Cabaret
Life is a cabaret today! Well, you may not want to put on the
fishnet tights and the bowler hat, but you certainly feel like dancing
and singing. What's brought this on? Well, as Mercury turns direct in
your house of new beginnings, it may be nothing more than a sense of
being at one with the world, and a determination to look on the bright
side and make the best of whichever cards life has dealt you. When you
think about it, what else can you do?

looking forward to.
Favorable colors are kiwifruit and tartan.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 16.
Sun Aug 12:

buddies but your present attitude will make them more sympathetic towards
Harmonious colors are ivory and ebony.

Tue Aug 14:
Enjoyment, Love, Laughter
There are three things you're after today -- enjoyment, love
and laughter. As a result, you need to steer clear of anything that
smacks of hard work, drudgery or duty. It's a lovely day for being with

Fortunate colors are dark brown and butterscotch.
Lucky numbers are 22 and 34.
Sat Aug 18:
A loved one seems to be operating much faster than usual, talking
nineteen to the dozen so you can barely keep up! Their thought
processes have also been speeded up. This could be fun but

you're lagging behind. Try to keep the atmosphere light-hearted to
avoid things degenerating into a row.
Powerful colors are smoky quartz and champagne.
Lucky numbers are 22 and 41.
Sun Aug 19:
A friend is prone to some erratic thinking today, so there's no

something's got to give.

belongings you no longer need.

Lucky colors are deep purple and silver.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 39.
Fri Aug 24:
Still waters run deep today, so even if a loved one isn't
saying much it doesn't mean that they're impervious to what's going on
around them. You can bet that they're taking it all in, and probably

it's a good idea to encourage them to talk about what's on their mind,
even if it makes uncomfortable listening.
Beneficial colors are pistachio and violet.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 29.
Sat Aug 25:
Between now and early September you should think carefully
about any plans that are currently in the pipeline. Unforeseen snags
could crop up as the Moon's South Node enters Taurus, forcing you to re-
evaluate your ideas and possibly even come up with some different
solutions. Alternatively, projects may go cold for the time being and
you'll just have to be patient.
Beneficial colors are pearl and charcoal.
Lucky numbers are 23 and 65.
Sun Aug 26:
Aren't you in a competitive and adventurous mood today? Keen to
get involved in all sorts of interesting activities, you could even be
inspired to do something for the first time, especially if it presents
you with a bit of a challenge. Although you enjoy feeling your
adrenalin racing around your veins, don't do anything totally rash or
Favorable colors are strawberry and sapphire blue.
Lucky numbers are 31 and 49.
Mon Aug 27:
A Different Side
If you get fed up with being thought of as a placid or
pragmatic Taurean, you'll jump at the chance to show a different side
to your personality today. In fact, the more you suspect you've been
put into a pigeon hole, the more you'll want to do things that make
them sit up and take notice. It's a question of how outrageous you dare
Fortunate colors are aqua and jade.
Lucky numbers are 25 and 7.
Tue Aug 28:
Be careful today because your emotions are in a state of flux,
which could lead to confusion and mixed messages. Be especially aware
of this when dealing with people of power or influence, in case you
give them the wrong impression. It will also be difficult to keep track
of your thoughts, so you'll appear to be absent-minded or distracted.
Beneficial colors are vermilion and dark blue.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 10.
Wed Aug 29:
This is a good day for getting together with some of the family
because you'll enjoy one another's company. However, someone could get
their knickers in a twist, which will lead to a tricky atmosphere and

conversation strays into memories of the past, with people arguing
about what really happened.
Auspicious colors are cream and chocolate.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 45.
Thu Aug 30:
It's a tricky day, so be careful. You're in need of company but
the people you seek out won't have as much time for you as you'd like. As
the Moon's node moves to Scorpio, your 7th house of partnership, it's a
major new phase, stimulating how you interact with people and how
others look at you. Partnership, marriage and cooperative ventures take
the focus. Associated with legal manouvres, negotiations, contracts
and open confrontations, it's fun as well as funky. More on the Moon's Nodes.
Favorable colors are russet and dark green.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 65.
Fri Aug 31:
Strange things could happen with a friend during the next two
weeks, giving you an entirely new perspective on them. You might decide
that you need to have a word in their ear about something, particularly
if you don't want it to happen again. Or you could realize that your
feelings for them are changing and you need to do something about it.
Fortunate colors are black and emerald green.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 21.
