Wed Aug 1: Open Minded
- 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 is saying. Fortunate colors are bronze and pale grey. Lucky numbers are 13 and 49.
Thu Aug 2: Full Moon
- Be careful dealing with people in authority because the 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. Favourable colors are aqua and pale gold. Lucky numbers are 40 and 77.
Fri Aug 3: Logical Bulls
- Put your brain to good use now because you're in a very rational and logical frame of mind. It's a super day for showing how organized and practical you can be, without getting bogged down in details or becoming a stick-in-the-mud. If you get involved in a discussion
or negotiation, your intellect and common sense will shine through. Fortunate colors are dark yellow and dark blue. Lucky numbers are 30 and 53.
Sat Aug 4: Be Tactful
- A friend needs plenty of attention at the moment which is okay if 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 if you're to avoid upsetting this person or making them
feel that they aren't important enough to you. You may also receive an invitation that you can't get out of, even if you would like to. Auspicious colors are salmon and jet black. Lucky numbers are 15 and 27.
Sun Aug 5: Sentimental Bulls
- You're in a sentimental and emotional mood today, withoutgoing overboard or getting worked up. In an ideal world, you should surround yourself with loved ones, orspend time with one special person, and revel in their company. It's also a super day for luxuriating in
your home comforts. Ideal colors are terracotta and plum. Lucky numbers are 37 and 21.
Mon Aug 6: Big Changes
- Prepare yourself for a difficult day. For a start, you seem riddled with self-doubt and a lack of direction, and this will be exploited by anyone who wants to get the better of you. You're also facing big changes connected with a relationship or financial arrangement,
and right now you aren't very keen on the idea. But can you do anything to stop it? Empowering colors are bronze and crimson. Lucky numbers are 37 and 69.
Tue Aug 7: Bringing Out The Best
- During the coming four weeks you'll excel at bringing out the best in the people around you, as Venus is moving into charming Cancer. For instance, if a neighbor is usually a total pain in the neck, you may even manage to perform a miracle by appealing to their better
nature and keeping them sweet. So make the most of your tact and diplomacy, because they'll be your best friends this month. Inspiring colors are platinum and peacock blue. Lucky numbers are 7 and 30.
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? Uplifting colors are bright red and brilliant white. Lucky numbers are 40 and 61.
Thu Aug 9: Combustible Mood
- Watch out, because you're in a rather combustible mood right now and it won't take much to make you go off. What's wrong? You could be feeling got at, especially if a loved one has been nagging you or is being grumpy. There is also a chance that you're subconsciously
goading someone into losing their temper so you can have a rip-roaring row with them. Ideal colors are burnt orange and pale yellow. Lucky numbers are 24 and 51.
Fri Aug 10: Indulge Yourself
- The next few weeks will be a fantastic opportunity to cram as much fun into your life as possible. You'll have a very strong desire to enjoy yourself whenever you get the chance, and that will include making the most of your love life. If you get involved with someone
new, the thrill of the chase will be a big part of the fun. Take care, though, not to confuse love with lust. Beneficial colors are plum and golden honey. Lucky numbers are 23 and 37.
Sat Aug 11: Bring Out The Best
- A local event or neighborhood activity goes really well today, helped along by your current ability to bring out the best in others. A few well- chosen words could make all the difference to what happens now, and you'll definitely prefer to mollify people than to rub
them up the wrong way. Remember that if you've got to do something that you aren't looking forward to. Favorable colors are kiwifruit and tartan. Lucky numbers are 33 and 16.
Sun Aug 12: Be Understanding
- The more understanding you can show towards a certain person, the better you'll get on with them now. Even if they're a bit of a mystery and you can't work them out, they'll appreciate the effort you're making to find out what makes them tick. You may never end up
being bosom buddies but your present attitude will make them more sympathetic towards you. Harmonious colors are ivory and ebony. Lucky numbers are 39 and 30.
Mon Aug 13: Unpredictable
- Some of the people in your life are very unpredictable today, and as a result social arrangements could face lots of disruptions. Do your best to go with the flow and to see where it takes you, because it could lead you in some highly enjoyable directions. You might
also be strongly attracted to someone who isn't normally your cup of tea but who is definitely to your taste right now. Beneficial colors are spearmint and tan. Lucky numbers are 8 and 35.
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 some of your favourite people, perhaps sharing a meal or a having a
drink together. A trip to a beauty spot or the cinema will also appeal to you now. Positive colors are chocolate and aqua. Lucky numbers are 3 and 20.
Wed Aug 15: New Moon
- You've been spending a lot of time concentrating on your home and family lately, and today's New Moon is a super opportunity to make any changes or decisions that you think are necessary. For instance, if you've been wondering when to put your house on the market or
redesign your garden, it would be a wise move to get the ball rolling within the next two weeks. Positive colors are blueberry and silver. Lucky numbers are 3 and 4.
Thu Aug 16: Family Pow Wow
- If you've been wondering when to have a family pow-wow, this is a great day for it. Everyone concerned is in a considerate and tactful mood, which is a major bonus, and they're also interested in talking about what's on the agenda. Choose your words with care so you
can avoid treading on any toes or ruffling any feathers. Auspicious colors are gold and mauve. Lucky numbers are 36 and 66.
Fri Aug 17: Sure-Footed
- If you want to make things happen or move a project one step closer to completion, roll up your sleeves and give it your best shot now. You're feeling sure-footed and confident, and this will carry you through any sticky patches that might crop up. Things will also go
well if you're in the throes of buying or selling your home, with people being surprisingly cooperative. Fortunate colors are dark brown and butterscotch. Lucky numbers are 22 and 34.
Sat Aug 18: Light Hearted
- 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 unfortunately it may also mean that things soon start to get impatient if 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: Perverse Delight
- A friend is prone to some erratic thinking today, so there's no knowing what they're going to say or do next. You may suspect that they're taking a perverse delight in keeping you on your toes or being rather contrary. Try not to take what they say as gospel in case
they're talking complete nonsense. Beneficial colors are dark red and bright yellow. Lucky numbers are 29 and 5.
Mon Aug 20: Full Plate
- There's a lot on your plate today, but don't let it get you down. This could have an impact on your health, making you feel tired or lethargic, or even making you susceptible to any germs that happen to be flying about. If you're really struggling to get everything
done you may have to ask for help or accept that you can't work miracles and something's got to give. Uplifting colors are silvery blue and dusky pink. Lucky numbers are 32 and 41.
Tue Aug 21: Potter About
- A lot of pleasure is to be gained from getting on with domestic and other routine chores today. You'll enjoy gradually ticking them all off your list of things to do, and you'll also take trouble with them so you do them to the best of your ability. If you can spare
the time you'll enjoy pottering about in the kitchen or throwing out old belongings you no longer need. Positive colors are snow white and russet. Lucky numbers are 6 and 10.
Wed Aug 22: Sweet Atmosphere
- Life will be very pleasant and enjoyable during the next four weeks, with plenty of things to keep you amused. Much to your delight, there will be times when you're the center of everyone's affection, which will do wonders for your ego. The atmosphere between you and
your favourite people will be even sweeter than usual, so there's a lot to look forward to. Ideal colors are lemon and coffee. Lucky numbers are 34 and 5.
Thu Aug 23: Chit Chat
- Energy and enthusiasm focus on partnership and alliances, cooperative efforts and interaction with others as Mars hits your seventh house. Ideally, you should get together with someone who makes your world go round and then chat about whatever pops into your head. If
you meet someone new now you'll share a relationship in which communications are highlighted. Lucky colors are deep purple and silver. Lucky numbers are 17 and 39.
Fri Aug 24: Still Waters
- 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 getting into a bit of a state. If you suspect that someone is brooding,
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: Unforeseen Snags
- 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: Adventurous Mood
- 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 foolhardy. 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 to be! Fortunate colors are aqua and jade. Lucky numbers are 25 and 7.
Tue Aug 28: Mixed Messages
- 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: Raised Voices
- 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 possibly even some raised voices. This is especially likely if
the 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: Tricky Day
- 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: Full Moon
- 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.
