Mon Aug 1:
Full Of Beans
- You're full of beans today, which makes it a great start to
August. You're also full of enthusiasm about all sorts of topics, and
this will rub off on whoever happens to be around. If you want to talk
someone into seeing things from your point of view, or joining you on a
forthcoming adventure, you'd better get chatting to them today while
you're in full flow.
Lucky colours are peach and aquamarine.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 55.
Tue Aug 2:
Make It Grow
- If you want to put your money to work, start thinking about how
you can make it grow. Maybe you should seek some expert advice if you
aren't sure what to do, or perhaps you're now ready to make a decision
and hope that it turns out well. This is a good day for setting the ball
rolling, provided that you know what you're doing and you don't take any
foolish risks. We cannot change the way others behave, but we can alter
and control our reactions. As Mars moves behind the scenes, you are
likely to be more secretive about what you do.
Lucky colours are maroon and basalt.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 69.
Wed Aug 3:
Stay On Track
- This isn't a good day for starting any new negotiations or
agreements because they could hit snags and fizzle out. Far better to
concentrate on arrangements that are already in the pipeline, and to
steer them through to a successful conclusion. You should also avoid
making a date to see someone today because, once again, it could all
come to nought.
Lucky colours are russet and mango.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 5.
Thu Aug 4:
Talk It Through
- Someone may be dear to your heart but they're being rather
unapproachable today, making it hard to establish any sense of intimacy
with them. Try not to take this too personally because there could be
reasons for their behaviour that have nothing to do with you. Maybe you
should talk to them and find out what's going on, but don't be pushy or
Lucky colours are burnished brass and avocado.
Lucky numbers are 34 and 14.
Fri Aug 5:
Light And Easy
- Today should be fun, light and easy, so enjoy the happy vibes.
Your intellect and spiritual awareness will reach a monthly peak as the
Moon and Venus travel through your ninth house of the higher mind. Let
it flow. Dealings with foreigners and cultured types are also favoured.
Romance heats up as well, so do something special for your beloved. You
may do well through travel and artistic pursuits too.
Lucky colours are bronze and raspberry.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 27.
Sat Aug 6:
Upbeat And Cheerful
- Everything goes well today. You're feeling upbeat and cheerful,
so you attract positive situations and good outcomes. You might want to
continue what you started yesterday, or perhaps that's all out of the
way and it's time to enjoy yourself instead! If you're going shopping,
you'll be drawn to status symbols and other items that will enhance your
reputation. But make sure you can afford them!
Lucky colours are lemon and nutmeg.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 13.
Sun Aug 7:
- You're in quite a daredevil mood today, although you'll draw the
line at doing anything that's very foolhardy or dangerous. Even so,
you're ready to take a few risks and to have a good time in the process.
If you've got some spare time you'll enjoy visiting somewhere new or
taking off on a mini adventure with some kindred spirits.
Lucky colours are salmon and gold.
Lucky numbers are 26 and 21.
Mon Aug 8:
Change Of Heart
- You aren't sure of yourself today, so don't make any important
commitments in case they turn out to be big mistakes. In fact, it's a
strange day because you feel unsettled and uncertain, and you could even
have a change of heart over something that has always been really
important to you until now. It's probably only a temporary blip, so
don't take it too seriously at the moment.
Lucky colours are viridian and white velvet.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 22.
Tue Aug 9:
Clarify Your Thoughts
- If you're still feeling unsure of yourself after yesterday, talk
to someone who knows you well and who's willing to listen to you pouring
your heart out. You'll gain a lot from talking things through, because
it will give you the chance to think aloud and to work out exactly where
you stand. If you've got no one to confide in, clarify your thoughts by
writing everything down.
Lucky colours are mahogany and green.
Lucky numbers are 37 and 4.
Wed Aug 10:
Back On Track
- After the uncertainties of the past couple of days, you're ready
to make commitments and get things back on track. This is an excellent
day for being practical and efficient, and for making things happen. If
you're at work, you'll feel you've achieved a lot and you could win the
approval of a boss or superior.
Lucky colours are mango and banana.
Lucky numbers are 31 and 9.
Thu Aug 11:
- The emotional atmosphere is rather muted today. You might feel
sidelined if a loved one has other things to do besides seeing you, or
there could be an air of constraint between you. Try not to impose your
opinions on other people, especially if you disapprove of the way
they're behaving. This isn't the day for giving someone a
finger-wagging, unless you don't mind alienating them completely.
Lucky colours are jasmine and sepia.
Lucky numbers are 31 and 67.
Fri Aug 12:
- Someone is in a tearing hurry today, making it difficult to
spend much time with them because they keep looking at their watch or
trying to chivvy you along. They may also be spoiling for a fight,
especially if things haven't been going well for them lately. If you
start to feel edgy too, it will help to do something physical and
therapeutic, such as going for a jog or kicking a football about.
Lucky colours are lavender and spearmint.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 6.
Sat Aug 13:
On The Warpath
- A certain someone is on the warpath today, so woe betide you if
you get on the wrong side of them. Be prepared for a dressing-down or
some uncomfortable home truths. If you're upset about something, get it
off your chest, otherwise it will eat away at you and make you difficult
Lucky colours are dark grey and burgundy.
Lucky numbers are 40 and 20.
Sun Aug 14:
Change Of Mood
- You need plenty of variety and spontaneity in your life today,
otherwise you'll get bored and restless. Although you don't always feel
comfortable around people who are very unconventional, you're more in
the mood for them today than usual. You also need to demonstrate your
own individuality rather than be one of the crowd.
Lucky colours are mahogany and passionfruit.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 3.
Mon Aug 15:
- It isn't always easy for you to show your deep emotions but
they're more accessible than usual today. Let your feelings flood out,
especially if you can do so with one of the special people in your life.
It's the day to talk about things you normally bottle up, which will do
you the world of good and help you sort out your feelings.
Lucky colours are rich cream and lapis lazuli.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 8.
Tue Aug 16:
Communications Return To Normal
- During the past couple of weeks there have been times when
you've struggled to make loved ones understand you. For some reason they
couldn't grasp what you were talking about. But all that starts to
change from today, when communications begin to return to normal. They
may still need a nudge in the right direction from you, however, so
don't automatically assume that it's a case of least said, soonest
mended. You may need to do a bit more explaining than that.
Lucky colours are grey and raspberry.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 2.
Wed Aug 17:
- Try to spend some time with older friends and relatives during
the next few weeks. You'll really value their company and get a lot out
of talking to them. There's a good chance that you might start a
romantic relationship with someone who's either much older or much
younger than you, or you could get involved with someone who's
influential and powerful.
Lucky colours are honeycomb and orange.
Lucky numbers are 34 and 69.
Thu Aug 18:
- Today's Full Moon picks up yesterday's financial theme, and
tells you what you need to concentrate on during the coming two weeks.
Yes, it's money! You need to do some serious economizing or rethink your
priorities and values in life. Perhaps you need to remember that money
and status isn't everything. Not even for a Capricorn!
Lucky colours are ivory and yellow.
Lucky numbers are 20 and 72.
Fri Aug 19:
- Money worries threaten to put a crimp in your day. You might be
waiting for a cheque or payment that hasn't arrived, or you could be
faced with a big bill and be left wondering how on earth you're going to
pay it. Try not to get bogged down in fretting about things you can't
change and concentrate instead on those things you can do something
Lucky colours are crimson and sable.
Lucky numbers are 15 and 22.
Sat Aug 20:
- Try to spend time today with someone whose company you really
value. They'll help you feel good about yourself, especially if you've
felt knocked about by the events of the past few days. They will
certainly help to restore your self respect and confidence, even if all
they do is pay you a few compliments or remind you of some of your
Lucky colours are blackberry and pistachio.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 69.
Sun Aug 21:
Change The Subject
- A certain person is very forceful, making it uncomfortable to be
around them for long. They have very strong ideas about how things
should be and they're keen to tell you all about them. This might be all
right for a while but it will soon start to pall, especially if there
are reasons why you can't tell them to take a running jump. Try changing
Lucky colours are purple and avocado.
Lucky numbers are 20 and 52.
Mon Aug 22:
- You often prefer to stick with the things you know rather than
to branch out in new directions, but you start to feel a lot more
adventurous than usual from today and this state will continue for the
coming four weeks. It will be a wonderful opportunity to try something
new for a change, and it could work out a lot better than you were
expecting. Good luck!
Lucky colours are marmalade and black.
Lucky numbers are 23 and 69.
Tue Aug 23:
- If you've been thinking about moving house or doing up your
current home, this is an excellent day for checking that things are
running smoothly or deciding what your options are. You're in a
practical and sensible mood and don't want to waste your time on
projects that don't stand a chance of becoming reality, so you can
expect to make some excellent progress.
Lucky colours are fawn and emerald.
Lucky numbers are 36 and 16.
Wed Aug 24:
- This promises to be one of the most enjoyable and satisfying
days in August for you, so be prepared to make the most of it. It's
ideal for broadening your horizons, whether mentally or physically. You
might also be offered a wonderful opportunity, even if it doesn't look
all that good at first. Ideally, you should do something sociable too,
preferably in the company of some of your favourite people.
Lucky colours are gold and raspberry.
Lucky numbers are 2 and 30.
Thu Aug 25:
Energy To Burn
- You're blessed with an abundance of energy, so make good use of
it. You certainly shouldn't sit around doing nothing unless you have no
choice in the matter, because that will soon start to make you feel
agitated, restless and irritable. Even going for short walks or running
up and down stairs will help to burn off some of your excess energy and
keep you sweet-tempered.
Lucky colours are silver and navy.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 35.
Fri Aug 26:
- Someone's being awfully snappy and crotchety today, using words
like weapons, so try not to get in the firing line. If you're the one
who's shooting from the hip and giving everyone a hard time, do your
best to work out what's bugging you and then do something about it. But
you won't have any friends left if you carry on like this!
Lucky colours are caramel and coffee.
Lucky numbers are 20 and 38.
Sat Aug 27:
Get To Grips
- This is a brilliant day for getting on with chores and making
sure that everything in your life is running smoothly. Get to grips with
any paperwork that's hanging around and demanding your attention, make
any phone calls that are overdue or pay some bills. It's also a good day
for having a general tidy-up and chucking out anything you no longer
Lucky colours are pale purple and lapis lazuli.
Lucky numbers are 2 and 7.
Sun Aug 28:
Putting Up Obstacles
- This is a tricky day because you feel as though you're stuck and
can't make any progress. Maybe someone is standing in your way or
objecting to all the suggestions you make. If so, you might decide that
they're deliberately being awkward because they want to make life
difficult for you. But why? You won't be able to answer that question
yet, but keep it in mind.
Lucky colours are ebony and fuchsia.
Lucky numbers are 39 and 27.
Mon Aug 29:
Get In Touch
- Spend time with other people today because they'll make you feel
good. It's perfect for getting together with someone who's on the same
wavelength as you or who shares some of your beliefs. If you haven't
heard from someone who lives far away or in another country, get in
touch with them so you can find out how they are.
Lucky colours are pale blue and champagne.
Lucky numbers are 40 and 27.
Tue Aug 30:
- The planet of love enters your tenth house of career and
reputation, helping to put you in the good graces of your elders and
superiors. You may even get a pay rise or promotion during the next few
weeks, so don't be afraid to ask for what you need. Relationships with
your parents and authority figures should also improve under this
Lucky colours are garnet red and pewter grey.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 10.
Wed Aug 31:
- It's hard to get at the truth today, partly because you're in a
bit of a state and partly because other people aren't being as
straightforward as you'd like. Mercury is entering a retrograde phase,
so be especially wary of anyone who insists they're telling you the
truth because it probably means that they aren't. Watch out, too, for
anyone who wants to brainwash you into signing up to their own set of
beliefs, whether these are religious, political or environmental.
Lucky colours are grey and orange.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 20.
