Wed Aug 1:
- Technology is great when it works and a total pain when it
doesn't. Unfortunately, it looks as though this will be one of those days
when you're driven up the wall by machines that refuse to do what you
tell them. Your computer might stage a big sulk or your phone might go on
the blink. To make matters worse, you're being bombarded by too much
information and you can't take it all in. What a day!
Beneficial colors are aqua and white.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 10.
Thu Aug 2:
- Today you're very keen on any activities that will brighten up
your life and give you something fresh to think about. As a result, you
could become interested in a new hobby that seems to offer you a lot of
scope, or you might consider joining a club or organization that's
slightly unusual. Some of your ideas may also seem quite radical to
you, yet they are worth following up.
Lucky colors are burgundy and silver.
Lucky numbers are 25 and 59.
Fri Aug 3:
- This is a good day to make sure that your domestic and family
plans are running smoothly. You'll want to check up on all sorts of
details, without getting caught up in trivia or worrying about things
that will never happen. If you've been concerned about the welfare of a
loved one, have a chat with them to make sure they're OK. They'll
Fortunate colors are copper and pale gold.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 46.
Sat Aug 4:
- Ideally, you should steer clear of anything that really stirs
up your emotions today, otherwise you're likely to go over the top in
some way. That, of course, is easier said than done because your heart is
definitely ruling your head right now. Be particularly careful when
dealing with topics that touch on your fears or stir up painful
memories that you've been trying to bury.
Favourable colors are crimson and peach.
Lucky numbers are 24 and 43.
Sun Aug 5:
Smiles All Around
- You're wreathed in smiles today and feeling much better than
you have so far this August. You've recaptured your joie de vivre and
you'll find all sorts of ways to enjoy yourself now. Play one of your
favourite pieces of music when you're in the car, treat yourself to a
delicious snack with your coffee or get in touch with someone who
always makes you laugh.
Happy colors are lavender and viridian.
Lucky numbers are 2 and 47.
Mon Aug 6:
- One of the major themes in your life throughout 2012 is change,
and you're reminded about it once again this week. You're becoming
increasingly aware of the need to make some radical transformations,
especially where your health, work or beliefs are concerned, and these
take on a sense of urgency now. If you've been scared of making the first
move, you're now ready to give it a try. In fact, you've reached the
point where you realize that you've got more to lose by holding on to the
status quo than by surrendering it and taking your chances.
Beneficial colors are dark green and ochre.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 25.
Tue Aug 7:
- Over the next couple of days try to find the time for a good,
long look at your home and garden. Could they do with a facelift? Even
a few minor adjustments, such as moving around the furniture or buying
some new cushions, could make all the difference to the mood and feel
of your surroundings, for Venus is moving into homeloving Cancer.
However, beware of a tendency to blow your budget and then spend even
Beneficial colors are apricot and mother of pearl.
Lucky numbers are 35 and 57.
Wed Aug 8:
- You'll be happiest if you can gather your loved ones around you
now as Mercury turns direct in your house of love. You want to know
that they're okay, and the best way to do that is to see it with your own
eyes. Even if you go into mother-hen mode at some point because you're
concerned about someone, you'll manage to do it without making too much
of a fuss, which would be self-defeating.
Auspicious colors are onyx and golden honey.
Lucky numbers are 23 and 37.
Thu Aug 9:
- Money could quickly become a source of problems now, particularly
if a certain someone is convinced that they know what you should be
spending your cash on. Naturally, they'll disagree with you about what
you want to buy, and they may even be prepared to go into a sulk if you
don't play by their rules. As this is the last thing you'll do, so a
row seems almost inevitable.
Beneficial colors are cream and bright red.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 74.
Fri Aug 10:
- Keep an eagle eye on paperwork and files during the next few
weeks because they'll have a nasty habit of doing their own thing and
causing havoc. This isn't a time to trust to luck or hope that everything
will magically look after itself because that isn't going to happen.
There could also be mix-ups over appointment times, so check these carefully.
Dynamic colors are tan and navy.
Lucky numbers are 37 and 28.
Sat Aug 11:
- Someone is in a very sentimental and nostalgic mood today, and
you may have to placate them to avoid them going off the deep end or
bursting into tears. If you're the one who's gazing at the past through
rose-tinted spectacles, have a lovely, nostalgic wallow and then bring
yourself back to the present. Above all, resist the temptation to rewrite
history and make yourself believe things that never really happened.
Positive colors are banana and mahogany.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 74.
Sun Aug 12:
Open And Receptive
- The more open and receptive you are to what is going on around
you, the more you'll learn now. If you're serious about making big
changes to your life, another piece of the jigsaw will fall into place
today, giving you a better idea of what to aim for in the future. There's
a strong sense that destiny is holding you in its hand, yet you're also
able to call a lot of the shots yourself.
Beneficial colors are silvery pink and walnut brown.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 70.
Mon Aug 13:
- There's no reason to worry. In fact, you're all set for a
really enjoyable day, even though there could be some surprising events
along the way. At some point you might have an unexpected visitor or a
loved one could drop a mini bombshell that catches you completely unawares.
Fortunate colors are cornflower blue and sunflower yellow.
Lucky numbers are 41 and 6.
Tue Aug 14:
- You gain a lot of comfort from immersing yourself in your daily
routine today. Sometimes it seems boring or restrictive, but right now it
has a certain charm. Food will play a big part in your life, so
consider buying something special to eat or cooking a delicious meal.
If you're doing some entertaining, you'll probably make much more food
than everyone can eat.
Fortunate colors are blueberry and platinum.
Lucky numbers are 19 and 29.
Wed Aug 15:
- If you've been feeling lovelorn and lonely, here's some
marvellous news -- you could fall head over heels in love with someone
wonderful during the next two weeks. If you're already part of a happy
couple, the atmosphere between you will be really harmonious and easy-
going. There could also be some good news about a child or forthcoming
celebration. Enjoy yourself!
Fortunate colors are jade and gold.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 7.
Thu Aug 16:
- You're blessed with a great deal of tact and diplomacy today,
so put it to good use. It's the ideal opportunity to smooth over any
problems that have emerged with a certain person recently, and you may
even manage to eradicate them completely now simply by choosing your
words carefully and, if necessary, admitting that you were in the
wrong. A surprising opportunity will emerge.
Opportune colors are ruby red and white quartz.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 15.
Fri Aug 17:
- You're in a very realistic and sensible mood today, yet you won't
be so wedded to commonsense that you become stuffy or hidebound. Instead,
you're able to combine a practical approach with an ability to look on
the bright side of things and be positive about your future prospects.
A relationship will flourish as a result of your marvellous attitude.
Inspirational colors are lemon and lime.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 48.
Sat Aug 18:
- Are you feeling brave, Aries? If so, you'll have no qualms
about standing up to someone who's quite vociferous and opinionated. Even
if neither of you are prepared to concede an inch, you can't change the
other person's attitude. However, you can do something about your own,
especially if you're in danger of cutting off your nose to spite your
Favorable colors are olive and dark red.
Lucky numbers are 32 and 74.
Sun Aug 19:
- You'll have to anchor your eyebrows with weights to avoid them
going into orbit when you hear what some people are saying. They may be
spouting complete nonsense, or being so futuristic that you feel you're
in the middle of a science fiction film! Try to listen with an open mind.
Don't be reactionary or a bit of a stick-in-the-mud. Yes, you!
Inspirational colors are emerald green and silvery blue.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 11.
Mon Aug 20:
Trying Your Patience
- Is someone trying your patience? Doom and gloom? For instance,
offer them a biscuit and they give you a lecture on saturated fats, or
mention your plans for the house and they suck their teeth and look
doubtful. Let them get on with it, but don't be affected by it. You'll
have some bright ideas despite the general malaise.
Favorable colors are charcoal and mustard yellow.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 77.
Tue Aug 21:
- Put on your best clothes and make a beeline for the nearest
social event or party. It's exactly what you're in the mood for and
you'll be on sparkling form. This is just what you need if you're
planning to woo a certain person with your charms. Of course they fall in
a breathless heap at your feet. Both you and I know that they'd be a fool
to resist when you're in this sort of mood.
Favorable colors are platinum and pumpkin.
Lucky numbers are 36 and 54.
Wed Aug 22:
- Life has been good fun recently but from today you realize that
you've got to start paying more attention to your work. Boring! Or is it?
It doesn't have to be, especially if you're prepared to put your heart
and soul into your job. If the thought of that is laughable in the
extreme, then maybe this is your chance to start looking for a job that
offers you better prospects or more satisfaction.
Beneficial colors are ivory and vermilion.
Lucky numbers are 24 and 10.
Thu Aug 23:
- Mars your life-ruler dives into Scorpio today, taking the
pressure off your closest relationships. A partner's income or jointly-
held property needs more attention in weeks ahead. You may be forced to
collect debts and favors owed to you, or repay your own debts. If you
want to get on with your work and you're surrounded by other people,
you'd better wear some ear-plugs. Otherwise, you're likely to be
distracted by chatter and gossip. When you are actually able to work
you'll find it easy to put your thoughts down on paper, so get writing.
Inspired colors are sable and red.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 45.
Fri Aug 24:
- As the Moon moves into fiery Sagittarius, it will do you good
to spend time with a kindred spirit now. You'll enjoy talking about
subjects that mean a lot to both of you, particularly if they have
spiritual or philosophical overtones. Conversations like this will help
to bring the two of you closer together. If you haven't heard recently
from a friend who lives far away, make contact with them now to check
that they're okay.
Fortunate colors are caramel and coffee.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 67.
Sat Aug 25:
Loud And Clear
- During the next few days it will be almost impossible to avoid
mix-ups as the nodes change sign, but try not to make the situation worse
than ever by being unclear about what you mean. For instance, if you
don't want to do something it would be better to say so loud and clear
than to hedge your bets and pretend that you might be persuaded to change
your mind later on.
Favorable colors are plum and peach.
Lucky numbers are 19 and 48.
Sun Aug 26:
- An older woman is feeling emotional and might even become
overwrought at some point today. You'll feel you have to tiptoe around
her to avoid a scene. But maybe all she really needs is a big hug or some
kind words. Try to oblige, even if she isn't exactly your favourite
person or you're getting fed up with what you see as her histrionics.
What will it cost you, anyway?
Calming colors are spring green and silver.
Lucky numbers are 22 and 65.
Mon Aug 27:
- Boredom is just a blink away today, so find constructive ways
to keep it at bay. The moment you start to get fed up you'll want to stir
up a little trouble or do things that make people sit up and take notice,
both of which could land you in hot water. Is your present mood further
proof that your daily schedule is tedious enough to make a chronic
insomniac drop off to sleep? If so, you must decide what you're going
to do about it.
Favorable colors are navy and cream.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 35.
Tue Aug 28:
- Heightened emotions could be your friend or foe today. It all
depends on how you use them and what's going on around you. If you're
with people you can trust, you'll have some profound insights into your
feelings about them. But if you're with people who put you on your guard,
your imagination will start to run riot and you'll end up feeling
confused about people's motives.
Inspiring colors are turquoise and rose.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 58.
Wed Aug 29:
- If a friend is recounting a story to you, bear in mind that
they aren't the most reliable witness in the world right now. They may be
placing undue emphasis on certain aspects of their tale, perhaps
because they want to gain your sympathy or make you reach a particular
conclusion. You may also be guilty of this, even if you aren't aware of
it at the time.
Fortunate colors are strawberry and apricot.
Lucky numbers are 38 and 32.
Thu Aug 30:
As the Moon's node hits Scorpio a new major phase begins,
stimulating your love life and increasing your urge to go deep into the
mysteries and motivations of life. Other people's money is also a
focus. You often give the impression of being carefree and happy-go-
lucky, but underneath that cheerful exterior you can be sensitive and
easily hurt. And this is one of those days when you feel particularly
vulnerable and exposed, making you attuned to the merest hint of
emotional rejection. More on the Moon's Nodes.
Favorable colors are amber and maroon.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 46.
Fri Aug 31:
- Today's Full Moon is urging you to face up to any worries that
are currently nagging away at the back of your mind. Although you'd
probably like to pretend that such anxieties don't exist, they aren't
going to vanish of their own accord. Instead, you've got to do
something about them, and the sooner the better. It will be a relief to
take some constructive action at last.
Auspicious colors are aqua and silver.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 12.
