Wed Aug 1: Outspoken
- Someone is being very outspoken today and they don't seem to care. As a result, they could easily put your nose out of joint or say things that would have been better left unsaid. The conversation might also turn to this person's desire for freedom of some sort, which
could make you feel very uncomfortable, especially if you suspect that they're talking about their freedom from you! Wait to see what happens next before going into a panic because it may not amount to anything. Beneficial colors are dark grey and marzipan. Lucky numbers are 4 and 39.
Thu Aug 2: Full Moon
- Your energy levels are very erratic as the Full Moon glares, making it difficult to get through the day smoothly. Treat your body with respect, because existing on a meagre or unhealthy diet will only make the problem worse. If you're at work, a colleague might blow
hot and cold, or there could be an unexpected encounter with a certain person that leaves you wondering what on earth is going on. Bold colors are onyx and arctic chestnut. Lucky numbers are 16 and 37.
Fri Aug 3: Song And Dance
- If the tension from the past couple of days has started to get to you, try not to use this an excuse for a dramatic scene. Right now you have a tendency to blow problems out of all proportion and to create a song and dance about almost anything. If you need to let off
steam, do so in productive ways that help to reduce your nervous energy, such as going for a brisk walk. Uplifting colors are aqua and cherry blossom. Lucky numbers are 3 and 51.
Sat Aug 4: Intensity
- Life is full of intensity today, and you have a tendency to take things more seriously than usual. Your emotions are near the surface, too, and could erupt at an embarrassing moment. For instance, you might display a lot of emotion when you're in a public place or when
all eyes are on you, and your Virgoan modesty will curl up at the very thought. Favourable colors are violet and amethyst. Lucky numbers are 1 and 71.
Sun Aug 5: Express Yourself
- You're normally quite a private person but you'll gain a lot of pleasure from expressing your emotions today. You might have a wonderfully soppy and romantic encounter with your beloved, which sets you up for the rest of the week and makes you feel all warm inside. Or
you could have an in-depth conversation with someone you trust. Fortunate colors are peach and silvery grey. Lucky numbers are 9 and 64.
Mon Aug 6: Tough Decision
- It's time to make some long-lasting and serious changes to your domestic life and family set-up, even if this is a daunting prospect. For instance, you might realize that it's time to move house even if you'd love to stay put in your present home. Or you could have to
make a tough decision about one of the family. The trick will be to keep control of your emotions and your desires. Ideal colors are cinnamon and turquoise. Lucky numbers are 1 and 30.
Tue Aug 7: Kindred Spirits
- The coming four weeks are a fantastic time for being with friends and kindred spirits. It will do you the world of good to be with people who are on the same wavelength as you, and you might even find that you've got a lot more in common than you first realized. There
is even a chance that someone who starts as a friend ends up as a lover or partner. Positive colors are lavender and almond. Lucky numbers are 44 and 13.
Wed Aug 8: Optimistic Virgo
- As Mercury turns direct in Leo, you're exuding optimism and it feels great. No matter what life has thrown at you recently, from now on you're convinced that you can take it on the chin and come up smiling. If you're a free agent you'll enjoy having a complete change
of scene, especially if you visit somewhere that's steeped in history, culture or spirituality. Beneficial colors are jet black and honeycomb. Lucky numbers are 19 and 49.
Thu Aug 9: No Point Arguing
- There's no arguing with you-know-who today. They've got an answer for everything and it's likely to be delivered at full speed and top volume. Discretion is the better part of valor, especially if you've had more than enough of such moods lately. Don't let this
distract you from your work, nor make you take out your irritation on other people. Auspicious colors are peacock blue and iridescent green. Lucky numbers are 10 and 76.
Fri Aug 10: Mixed Signals
- Personal communications won't be easy, so take extra precautions. You might not realize that you're sending out mixed signals or that you're giving a misleading impression about something. This won't be a good time for making important personal decisions because you
might change your mind about them further down the line. Favorable colors are spring green and chocolate brown. Lucky numbers are 33 and 52.
Sat Aug 11: Keep Busy
- Ideally, you should keep busy today. It's exactly what you're in the mood for and you'll love being active. It's a really good day for arranging a forthcoming social event, especially if this requires a lot of energy or persistence. You may also have to put someone in
their place now, although you'll do it with such good nature that no harm will be done. Ideal colors are sable and smoky quartz. Lucky numbers are 6 and 16.
Sun Aug 12: Wipe The Slate Clean
- If you're holding grief or resentment from the past, this is a marvellous day for clearing some of it. It might be impossible to wipe the slate clean in one fell swoop, but you'll have made a start and you might discover that it's easier than you imagined. The lift in
your spirits and the relief at putting a difficult situation behind you will encourage you to carry on the good work. Beneficial colors are mango and blueberry. Lucky numbers are 29 and 3.
Mon Aug 13: No Need To Worry
- There's no need to worry because this looks like being a really enjoyable day. You could have a delicious surprise courtesy of a friend or loved one, or unexpected events might turn out to be exactly what you needed. If you meet someone new today you'll be dazzled and
charmed, and could soon be swept off your feet into a hot affair. Wow! Positive colors are teal blue and fawn. Lucky numbers are 31 and 12.
Tue Aug 14: All Wrapped Up
- Are you wrapped up in your own feelings and needs today? It's difficult to switch off and think about anyone else for long. That's exactly the way it should be right now, although other people may not agree, especially if they want you to turn your attention to them.
So you may have to tear your thoughts away from personal matters at some point. Stabilizing colors are grapefruit and dusky rose. Lucky numbers are 15 and 43.
Wed Aug 15: New Moon
- If certain worries have been plaguing you recently, today's New Moon is encouraging you to do something about them during the coming fortnight. If you can't alter the circumstances that you find yourself in at the moment, then you need to alter your attitude towards
them. You may not be able to do this on your own, so consider seeking professional help if needs be. Fortunate colors are lilac and silver. Lucky numbers are 12 and 21.
Thu Aug 16: Wavelength
- Seize the opportunity for an in-depth conversation with someone who's on your wavelength. You'll enjoy the chat, and possibly even sharing some secrets. If you're hoping that this person thinks of you as more than just a friend, you'll get a good idea now of whether
you're barking up the wrong tree or if your feelings are reciprocated. Beneficial colors are mother of pearl and salmon. Lucky numbers are 4 and 22.
Fri Aug 17: Serious Investment
- This is a terrific day for making some practical decisions connected with your finances. You know what you want to achieve, but you won't do anything rash and you'll know when to stop. It's also a good opportunity to make a serious investment in something that will
bring you a good return over the years, although you may want to keep it under your hat for the time being. Fortunate colors are turquoise and sunflower yellow. Lucky numbers are 29 and 48.
Sat Aug 18: Waste Of Breath
- To say that a certain person is being strongwilled is a huge understatement. They seem determined to get their own way, even if this causes tremendous upheaval or sets everyone else against them. It's a waste of breath telling them what you think, and it seems that the
only way they can learn from this experience is to reap the results of their actions. Stand by! Uplifting colors are dark green and champagne. Lucky numbers are 25 and 19.
Sun Aug 19: Keep Track
- It's difficult to keep track of all the ideas that are shooting through your head today, and the situation won't be improved by the tendency of everyone to all talk at once. It seems like a free-for-all, with everyone wanting to have their say regardless of who else is
speaking at the time. This will frazzle your nerves in no time at all if you let it get to you. Ideal colors are caramel and cream. Lucky numbers are 7 and 48.
Mon Aug 20: Be Philosophical
- A social event could end in disappointment today. It might not be nearly as much fun as you'd hoped, or someone who's essential to your enjoyment can't be there. There could also be delays in getting things off the ground, or maybe you simply aren't in a sociable mood.
Try not to see all this as a total disaster, but be philosophical about what turns up. Powerful colors are vermilion and dark yellow. Lucky numbers are 39 and 51.
Tue Aug 21: Little Treats
- If you're visiting the shops today you'll be tempted to buy yourself a treat or two. Now before you get carried away, remember they don't have to cost a fortune. When your hand strays to the most expensive item in the shop or you start to convince yourself that your
life won't be worth living without that extremely expensive sweater, hold back! Auspicious colors are apricot and chocolate. Lucky numbers are 27 and 7.
Wed Aug 22: Wonderful Virgo
- Your self-confidence rises by several notches from today and continues to ride high during the coming four weeks as the Sun cruises through your sign. This will be a fantastic chance to push ahead with projects that will increase your self-esteem and teach you more
about your abilities. As a Virgo you have an innate tendency to do yourself down, but right now you need to remind yourself how wonderful you are. And that's an order! Fortunate colors are pale violet and warm tan. Lucky numbers are 1 and 3.
Thu Aug 23: Chatterbox
- What a chatterbox! I'm talking about you, by the way. You're reluctant to draw breath today and thoroughly enjoy babbling about whatever pops into your head. Mars moving into steamy Scorpio swamps you with information and ideas. Travel and transportation are
highlighted so why not plan a trip or the purchase or sale of a car. You may develop new skills with machinery or computers at this time, but don't lose your temper and smash the screen! Empowering colors are platinum and deep gold. Lucky numbers are 3 and 10.
Fri Aug 24: Get A Grip
- Get a grip on your emotions today before they get a grip on you. You're feeling things very intensely and will have a tendency to get in a state about anything that upsets you or which triggers painful memories from the past. You might also get very wound up about a
domestic matter that you'd usually shrug off. Try not to turn it into a full-blown saga if it doesn't deserve it. Positive colors are scarlet and black. Lucky numbers are 22 and 48.
Sat Aug 25: Time For Reflection
- Do some hard thinking between now and early September. Ideally, you should re-evaluate decisions that you've taken recently and make sure that you're happy about them. Once you've done that, you can extend your thoughts to the past and reflect on some of the things
that have happened to you in your life. You may get an entirely new perspective on them as a result. Fortunate colors are peach and plum. Lucky numbers are 29 and 52.
Sun Aug 26: Daring Virgo
- You're ready to throw yourself into your social life today. It's great for casting caution to the winds and doing something a little bit daring, provided you don't actually risk life and limb. If you've been hoping to catch the eye of a certain person and drive them
into a frenzy of desire for you, launch stage one of your fiendish plan now. Good luck! Harmonious colors are deep purple and lavender. Lucky numbers are 14 and 69.
Mon Aug 27: Fed Up?
- Are you fed up with your image? Bored with the way everyone expects you to behave? Then it's time to do something about it. However, you must be careful not to go over the top, because that won't be very helpful even if it's fun at the time. Be prepared for certain
people to resist the changes you're making because they make them feel threatened or envious. Empowering colors are sunflower yellow and emerald green. Lucky numbers are 39 and 66.
Tue Aug 28: Recharge Your Batteries
- Take care of yourself because you won't have as much stamina as usual. This means you could get worn out quickly or want to spend the day in bed. It will do you far more good to rest and recuperate than to push yourself to the limit. However, if you have no choice but
to keep busy, at least give yourself plenty of breaks and make sure you're eating and drinking sensibly. Beneficial colors are pale pink and tangerine. Lucky numbers are 16 and 20.
Wed Aug 29: On A Whim
- It's impossible to guess what your partner is going to do next because they seem to be acting completely on a whim today. Maybe they're on a quest for excitement and new experiences, even if this causes problems for you. They certainly won't appreciate it if you cling
to them or try to tie them down, so do your best to give them the freedom they need at the moment. Fortunate colors are tan and cream. Lucky numbers are 17 and 41.
Thu Aug 30: Don't Expect Fireworks
- This is a low-key day, but it could still bring you some satisfying emotional experiences. The Moon's node heads into Scorpio, a major new phase lasting 18 months. This adds creativity to your writing or blogging skills, improves your mechanical and technical knowledge
and brightens relations with the family, friends and siblings. Communications and travel increase, widening your circle of contacts and encouraging the exchange of ideas and information. More on the Moon's Nodes. Ideal colors are silvery plum and smoky quartz. Lucky numbers are 3 and 10.
Fri Aug 31: Full Moon
- Today's Full Moon highlights your relationships during the coming fortnight, and matters with a certain person could come to a crisis. If so, you'll have to be very careful about the action you take. You'll have realized that you can't stand idly by any longer, yet you
won't want to do anything that makes the situation worse rather than better. Be guided by your sense of what's right and fair. Favorable colors are mahogany and brilliant white. Lucky numbers are 7 and 12.
