Wed Aug 1:
- It's difficult to keep track of your thoughts today because
they're whirling around in so many different directions. This will make
you seem rather absent-minded to others because you'll be so easily
distracted. There are also more interruptions to contend with than usual,
making you long for some peace and quiet. So do yourself a favor and have
some time on your own, otherwise you'll end up at screaming pitch.
Beneficial colors are khaki and aubergine.
Lucky numbers are 39 and 65.
Thu Aug 2:
- A loved one is in an excitable mood under the Aquarian Full Moon,
so it will take all your energy to keep up with them. They may keep
changing their mind about something so you aren't sure of what's going
on, with emotions blowing hot and cold. The best way to get through it is
to do things on the spur of the moment and to accept that they're
currently acting on emotional whims. This phase will pass, so there's
probably no need to make a big thing of it.
Favourable colors are platinum and dark yellow.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 53.
Fri Aug 3:
- Approach life from as practical an angle as possible today. You
aren't interested in theories or suppositions - you want to deal with the
facts. This makes it an ideal day to sort out problems at work or to
unravel a tangle of red tape. If you're talking to someone important on
the phone, it will help to take notes of your conversation in case you
need to refer to it again.
Ideal colors are burgundy and white.
Lucky numbers are 2 and 14.
Sat Aug 4:
- Watch out for someone who's thinking and behaving like a
martyr. They obviously want your approval and respect, but they're
going about it in the wrong way. There may also be more than a hint of
self-satisfaction in their behaviour, making you suspect that they're
actually on an ego trip. But whether you dare to say any of this is
Fortunate colors are aqua and apricot.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 12.
Sun Aug 5:
- Make the most of your social life today, whether that means going
to a big party or simply having a quick drink with a friend. You're in
a very gregarious and outgoing mood, which is guaranteed to attract
plenty of attention, especially from the opposite sex. This is just
what you want if you're hoping to dazzle a certain someone with your
charms and leave them gasping for more.
Expressive colors are smoky quartz and dark pink.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 70.
Mon Aug 6:
Follow The Rules
- You're able to make some very powerful and long-lasting changes
to your life today, provided that you follow some important rules. For
a start, you should consult anyone who'll be affected by what you're
proposing, and if possible you should get their approval or co-
operation before going ahead. You must also keep control of your emotions
and be very aware of what you're doing.
Dynamic colors are bright red and deep gold.
Lucky numbers are 24 and 55.
Tue Aug 7:
Emphasis On Relationships
- The next four weeks emphasize your relationships with people
who are older, wiser or more influential than you. You might even
strike up an intense or significant friendship with someone who comes
into this category, leading to an improvement in your status or power, or
a boost to your ego. However, you must be honest with yourself about what
you want from this person.
Auspicious colors are pale pink and charcoal grey.
Lucky numbers are 29 and 71.
Wed Aug 8:
Getting To Grips
- You're in a very practical mood today as Mercury turns direct,
releasing the pressure on your hopes and wishes. Get to grips with
anything that currently needs your attention. For instance, you might
want to go over some accounts or pay a few bills, or you could have to
check the terms of an insurance policy. You won't flinch from whatever it
is that you have to do, even if it isn't very interesting or fun.
You'll simply do what you've got to do.
Ideal colors are pistachio and sable.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 2.
Thu Aug 9:
- Be wary of making wild statements or exaggerated claims today
because they may come back to haunt you. If you are caught out, that
could leave you with a red face. Even if you're steamed up about
something that offends your principles or beliefs, try not to turn it
into a major drama or use it as an excuse to lose your temper about other
Prosperous colors are navy and olive.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 49.
Fri Aug 10:
Out And About
- Get out and about as much as possible today. Ideally, you
should forget about your usual routine and do something completely
different for a change because it will be a real tonic. You'll also enjoy
getting together with people who have a refreshing take on life and who
can help you to see it from another angle.
Beneficial colors are marmalade and dark brown.
Lucky numbers are 39 and 19.
Sat Aug 11:
- Play your cards right and you'll be able to form a strong
emotional rapport with someone you admire and respect. If you're really
lucky, they might tuck you under their wing or grant you some favors.
It will help if you're polite, but don't fall into the trap of
buttering up too much because that will make them wonder what you
really want from them.
Fortunate colors are peacock blue and iridescent green.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 20.
Sun Aug 12:
Cut To The Chase
- You're in an incisive frame of mind, which is perfect for
reaching decisions. Right now you have no desire to beat about the
bush, nor to fudge the issue, and so you'll want to go straight to the
heart of the matter. You'll use no-nonsense language, which some people
might find uncompromising. Nevertheless, you have to speak as you find at
Inspirational colors are peach and plum.
Lucky numbers are 48 and 60.
Mon Aug 13:
- There are some very pleasant surprises in store for you today,
especially where your work is concerned. You might hit it off so well
with a colleague or customer that it almost seems as though you're
flirting with each other -- and maybe you are! If a relationship gets off
the ground today it will be fun-loving, unusual and very entertaining.
Auspicious colors are strawberry and pineapple.
Lucky numbers are 37 and 50.
Tue Aug 14:
- At some point today, try to have a little time to yourself. You
need some solitude and peace, even if the only way to get it is to lock
yourself in the bathroom or go for a long walk. There are certain
things that you need to mull over, and you won't be able to do that
properly if lots of other people are milling about. You might also
enjoy doing some meditation or creative visualization.
Favorable colors are oyster and burgundy.
Lucky numbers are 37 and 10.
Wed Aug 15:
- Thanks to the auspicious New Moon in Leo, a friendship enters a
new phase during the coming fortnight. The cosmos is breathing fresh
air into it. This will be really exciting and encouraging, especially
if things have been flagging between you recently. This will also be a
marvellous time to get involved in some form of group activity,
particularly if it will widen your social circle or it caters for one
of your interests.
Beneficial colors are mother of pearl and rich maroon.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 11.
Thu Aug 16:
- You have the knack of being able to say and do exactly the
right thing today, particularly when you're with friends. You'll be
charming, tactful and great company. This is just what you need if you're
hoping to turn someone's head or make them realize that they can't live
without you. If you're involved in a group activity you might be asked to
take the lead now.
Dynamic colors are royal purple and pale gold.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 40.
Fri Aug 17:
Caution And Optimism
- You're able to blend caution with optimism today, particularly
when considering some of your long-term hopes and wishes. You'll know
which ideas are worth pursuing and which will never see the light of day.
A friend is a terrific support right now, and you'll realize how lucky
you are to have them in your life. Maybe you should say so?
Bold colors are blackberry and mahogany.
Lucky numbers are 15 and 38.
Sat Aug 18:
- It's a strange day because there's a lot you want to say, but
there may be reasons why you feel you have to stay silent. Perhaps you're
worried about hurting someone's feelings if you blurt out your
thoughts, and that's certainly possible now. You might also
accidentally reveal more than you intended if you speak without
thinking it through first. So be careful!
Fortunate colors are brilliant white and blood red.
Lucky numbers are 40 and 16.
Sun Aug 19:
All At Once
- Everything seems to be happening at once today. There could be
lots of distractions to cope with: important pieces of paper might go
astray or you may have to deal with an appliance that refuses to behave
itself. All this is likely to make you want to tear your hair out with
frustration, unless you can somehow distance yourself from the mayhem and
Soothing colors are lemon and aqua.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 4.
Mon Aug 20:
- The Moon's in your sign, so the grim outlook has passed, thank
heavens! If you're still feeling downcast and lackluster, do your best to
face up to whatever is wrong, and view it in a rational light. It is
likely that you're making mountains out of molehills, and allowing even
minor snags to get you down, but keep your eyes and ears open. Great
ideas are in the wind!
Favorable colors are lime and sapphire blue.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 17.
Tue Aug 21:
Kick Up Your Heels
- Give yourself some light relief today, whether going out with
friends, attending a social event or losing yourself in a favourite
hobby. You're about to enter a more reflective phase, so make the most of
this chance to kick up your heels and make merry. You might make a new
friend along the way, which will be a bonus.
Prosperous colors are beige and tangerine.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 77.
Wed Aug 22:
- Over the next four weeks, with the Sun in your twelfth, there
will be times when you long to be left to your own devices. You'll be
feeling quite solitary and contemplative, and won't want to make the
effort to be sociable. You may have to explain these phases to your
nearest and dearest, so they don't think you've suddenly gone off them or
that you've got something to hide.
Empowering colors are azure and oyster.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 41.
Thu Aug 23:
Heart On Your Sleeve
- As Mars leaves your sign, this is an excellent day for talking
about things that are dear to your heart or which you normally like to
keep secret. You'll be choosy about who you talk to, because you'll
have to feel that you trust them. If someone wants to confide in you,
make sure that you can keep their secrets. To be safe, focus on financial
and business matters. Boosting your income will be the main key during
the next few weeks. You may find your attitude to many things changes
as your values are expanded... or threatened.
Beneficial colors are teal blue and purple.
Lucky numbers are 34 and 55.
Fri Aug 24:
- Do you believe in telepathy? If not, you soon will because it's
working strongly for you right now. For instance, you might be thinking
about someone only to have them ring up a minute later, or you and a
loved one might both start talking about the same thing at the same time.
If distance separates you from a certain person, you may feel their
presence as though they were standing next to you.
Favorable colors are grapefruit and terracotta.
Lucky numbers are 35 and 22.
Sat Aug 25:
- The coming couple of weeks are ideal for thinking about your
hopes and plans for the future, especially if you want to start mapping
out your strategy. You'll enjoy grappling with a few mental challenges,
too, so won't be too fazed if some of your plans don't seem to add up
at first. Activities with an intellectual slant will also appeal to you now.
Fortunate colors are burnt orange and lemon.
Lucky numbers are 2 and 68.
Sun Aug 26:
On Your Conscience
- This is a really good day for dealing with anything that's been
on your conscience recently. It will be a relief to take some
constructive action at last, and it will also go better than you might
have imagined. You have quite a lot of energy right now and you'll
enjoy using up some of it in domestic chores, such as doing some cleaning
Ideal colors are aqua and butterscotch.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 16.
Mon Aug 27:
- You're in an erratic mood today, making it difficult to settle
down to anything for long before you start to get bored or irritated.
Ideally, you should have as many distractions and changes of pace as
possible now, to keep yourself interested in what's going on around
you. Concentrate when using sharp or hot objects to avoid becoming accident-prone.
Positive colors are dusky pink and silvery blue.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 27.
Tue Aug 28:
Sort Them Out
- If there have been problems with you-know-who recently, this is a
good day to sort them out. You won't have to make a huge production out
of it, either, because a few quiet words in their ear might be all that's
needed to get things back on track. Alternatively, if someone wants to
reason with you, you'll be very receptive to what they're saying.
Soothing colors are sable and champagne.
Lucky numbers are 15 and 44.
Wed Aug 29:
Logic Or Emotion?
- Are you torn between logic and emotion today? Beware of
changing your mind about what you think. This will be made worse if you
ask others for their opinions because you'll quickly decide that
they're right, before moving on to the next person and probably
revising your views again in the light of what they say. You'll end up
going round in circles if you carry on like this!
Beneficial colors are smoky quartz and white marble.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 63.
Thu Aug 30:
Your emotions are in rather a fragile state today, as the
Moon's node enters Scorpio, marking a major new financial phase lasting
for some 18 months. I hope you have plenty of money, because that's
likely to be the big focus now. You will expand your horizons and
probably change the shape of your value systems in months ahead. If you
don't have much dough, treat what you have with care and do not fall
for the three card trick. More on the Moon's Nodes.
Fortunate colors are cream and aubergine.
Lucky numbers are 2 and 10.
Fri Aug 31:
- If you're worried about your health, or that of someone dear to
you, try to do something about it during the next two weeks. Seek medical
help if needs be, or talk to someone who can give you some useful advice.
If you want to lose weight, give up a habit such as smoking, or get
more exercise, this is a marvellous time to begin. Take it gently and
don't expect overnight miracles.
Positive colors are sunflower yellow and cornflower blue.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 66.
