Mon Aug 1:
- You're feeling industrious and businesslike, making it not only
a great start to the week but also to the month. You're in the mood to
get on with whatever needs to be done, especially if it's getting
horribly overdue. Rather than shoving it to the back of your mind and
not thinking about it in the hope that it will go away, why not tackle
it - and make a good job of it at the same time.
Lucky colours are lemon and lime.
Lucky numbers are 16 and 45.
Tue Aug 2:
- Give your brain some exercise. You are an air sign, which means
you're very good at intellectual pursuits and this is a great day for
getting involved in them. Maybe you could have a fascinating discussion
with someone that really makes you think, or perhaps you'd prefer to put
your thoughts down on paper. But do something! Mars hits fiery
Sagittarius, increasing the volume of communications and activities,
especially with siblings and neighbours. You are apt to be swamped with
information and ideas, not to mention coming up with an increasing
number of your own.
Lucky colours are olive and brass.
Lucky numbers are 22 and 59.
Wed Aug 3:
No New Projects
- Don't start anything important or official today because it
could easily go wrong somewhere along the line. For instance, a big
project that gets off the ground now might run into trouble and never
see the light of day, or you could lose interest in something that
started off with so much promise. So postpone starting any new projects
today and concentrate on those that are already up and running.
Lucky colours are tangerine and ivory.
Lucky numbers are 22 and 39.
Thu Aug 4:
- A friend is in a rather sober and downbeat state today and it
could quickly rub off on you. For instance, they may be worried about
something and you'll soon start to feel anxious too. There could be a
slight air of reserve between you, which is nothing to worry about
because it will soon pass. Carry on as though nothing's wrong and don't
make a big thing of it.
Lucky colours are chocolate and caramel.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 45.
Fri Aug 5:
Behind the Scenes
- Passions may be ignited, so spend time with your significant
other today. You may have to compromise at work, as knives come out.
Thanks to Venus moving behind the scenes you find excuses to pass up
invitations -- you're too ill, too overweight, too much work to do, or
any number of other reasons. Romance may be secretive or based in
fantasy and dreams. Love relationships from the past can intrude. Resist
self-pity and turn your attention to helping those less fortunate than
Lucky colours are burgundy and bronze.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 21.
Sat Aug 6:
- You're in a really sunny and happy mood today, so enjoy it while
it lasts. It's great for making other people feel good too, whether
that's by cheering them up, making them laugh or simply being fantastic
company. You're also feeling very positive about hopes or dreams, and
are already starting to fantasize about them turning into reality.
That's great, but don't forget they won't happen of its own accord.
Lucky colours are vanilla and blue.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 58.
Sun Aug 7:
- Spend some time with the people you love today. You're in an
affectionate and demonstrative mood, so you won't feel shy about showing
someone how you feel about them. It's also a good day for dwelling on
emotions that you usually keep to yourself. Maybe it would help to talk
about them with someone you can trust?
Lucky colours are mushroom and claret.
Lucky numbers are 34 and 64.
Mon Aug 8:
Boost Your Ego
- Is it your imagination or is a certain person trying to
undermine you in some way? They certainly seem to be finding ways of
putting you down or making you doubt yourself, but that doesn't mean you
have to do what they want and have a crisis of confidence. Even so,
you'll be happiest if you can be with people who boost your ego rather
than trample on it.
Lucky colours are aqua and peach.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 39.
Tue Aug 9:
- This is a great day for making plans, especially if they're
connected with friends or a future project. You're thinking along
serious lines without getting too bogged down, so it's great for mapping
out your strategy or deciding in which order you're going to do
everything. If you need to bounce your ideas off someone, choose a
friend who's practical and sensible.
Lucky colours are emerald and sapphire.
Lucky numbers are 31 and 37.
Wed Aug 10:
- Once again you're interested in your hopes and plans for the
future. You're really fired up with enthusiasm for them at the moment
and you want to give them as much time as possible while you're in the
mood. If so, this is a good opportunity to sort out your timing and also
to check that you're feeling wholehearted about your plans. If you want
to change any of them you'll get the chance to do that from next week.
Lucky colours are blue and cinnamon.
Lucky numbers are 15 and 52.
Thu Aug 11:
- Money is a slight problem today. It's not a huge disaster, so
don't over-react, but it could definitely cast a dampener over the day's
proceedings. For instance, if you want to go out on the town you might
decide you can't really afford it or you've got to scale down your
plans. There could also be a slight coolness between you and a friend,
although you may not be able to put your finger on what's wrong.
Lucky colours are plum and gold.
Lucky numbers are 20 and 18.
Fri Aug 12:
Sweet And Flaky
- Someone is being very sweet today but they're also very flaky
and distracted. That's fine if you aren't relying on them to do anything
important but it could cause problems if they're supposed to be sorting
out a financial matter or spending money on your behalf. However,
they're also feeling very sensitive so you'll have to choose your words
carefully if you want to tell them to wait until they have their feet on
the ground again.
Lucky colours are grey and amethyst.
Lucky numbers are 23 and 53.
Sat Aug 13:
Shooting From The Hip
- Someone's shooting from the hip today, making it difficult to be
around them for long without catching a few verbal bullets. What's got
into them, anyway, and is it anything to do with you? If you are
provoking this person in some way it would be far better to realize what
you're doing and to admit it than to pretend that it's all their fault.
Particular problem areas right now are money, sex and plans for the
future, so go carefully.
Lucky colours are cocoa and parchment.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 72.
Sun Aug 14:
Long Term Plans
- The Stars encourage you to devote time and energy to your long
term plans at the moment and today is no exception. You can really make
progress now if you try, especially if you want to make a few tweaks to
your existing plans or you've suddenly realized where you've been going
wrong. At some point you might also have an in-depth conversation with a
friend, neighbor or close relative.
Lucky colours are apricot and black.
Lucky numbers are 2 and 43.
Mon Aug 15:
- This is a great day for being sociable, so try to mix with other
people whenever you get the chance. You'll enjoy being with kindred
spirits, especially if you already know them well. Something else to
enjoy now is a favourite pastime or hobby, particularly if you could do
with the chance to unwind and forget about all your troubles. It will do
you the world of good.
Lucky colours are green and silver.
Lucky numbers are 25 and 14.
Tue Aug 16:
- There have been times recently when it's been difficult to make
a true connection with a friend. Maybe you haven't quite understood each
other or there hasn't been enough time for proper conversations.
Whatever has been wrong, you get the chance to begin putting it right
from today. Forget any recriminations or judgements and start afresh,
Lucky colours are royal blue and yellow ochre.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 26.
Wed Aug 17:
Brimming With Hope
- You're brimming with hope and optimism today. Even if things
don't work out in quite the way you hoped, at least you can enjoy the
anticipation and expectation of most of your dreams coming true. Romance
looks very promising, and so does being with loved ones, but be prudent
when spending money.
Lucky colours are almond and mulberry.
Lucky numbers are 18 and 76.
Thu Aug 18:
- Today's Full Moon is reminding you to make any changes that you
think are necessary to your plans for the future. It's also telling you
to put the finishing touches to the creative projects you're currently
involved with, so you can get them out of the way and go on to something
new. During the next two weeks you may also have to do some straight
talking with a loved one, but this won't be as difficult as you might
Lucky colours are scarlet and smoky quartz.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 62.
Fri Aug 19:
- This is another lovely day for enjoying yourself and spending
time with people you care about. You'll be especially happy when you're
with women, because you'll feel a strong bond with them. You're in the
mood to give yourself a treat, whether that means buying yourself
something nice or getting involved in activities that always make you
Lucky colours are gold and chocolate.
Lucky numbers are 38 and 67.
Sat Aug 20:
Strengthen The Bonds
- Friends are even more important to you than usual today, so let
them know how you feel. A simple declaration of affection will help to
strengthen the bonds between you. You might send a nice card to one of
your chums, or tell them face to face how much you care about them. If
you're arranging a treat for someone you'll want to devote lots of time
to getting it right.
Lucky colours are green and ivory.
Lucky numbers are 23 and 49.
Sun Aug 21:
- Life has been pretty good over the past few days but it takes a
slight downturn today. That's because you're feeling rather hassled and
stressed, especially if you've got lots of work to do or you're coping
with the burden of someone else's expectations of you. Try to rise above
all this otherwise you'll become very intense and bad-tempered.
Lucky colours are terracotta and green.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 24.
Mon Aug 22:
Recharge Your Batteries
- You start to retreat into your shell today and you'll remain
there for the next four weeks. You'll want to emerge every now and then,
of course, but overall you'll prefer to keep a low profile and take life
easy. Look on the coming month as an opportunity to recharge your
batteries, both emotionally and physically, and also to take stock of
where you are in your life.
Lucky colours are fawn and avocado.
Lucky numbers are 29 and 50.
Tue Aug 23:
Getting In Touch
- Let's hope you haven't got much to do today because a certain
person wants to get in touch with you. And when they do it will be
difficult to get away from them because they're in quite a needy mood.
It's nothing to worry about but it will help to be aware of what's going
on. If you can't spare the time for them today you'll have to arrange to
see them later in the week, otherwise you'll be racked with guilt.
Lucky colours are plum and yellow.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 44.
Wed Aug 24:
- You aren't always very good at showing your feelings because
sometimes open displays of affection can make you embarrassed and
uncomfortable. But today you're ready and willing to tell someone how
you feel. You're also prepared to talk about topics that you usually
keep to yourself, especially if you consider them to be private or too
important to reveal to just anyone.
Lucky colours are pink and grey.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 25.
Thu Aug 25:
Close Your Wallet
- A loved one is in a bit of a state today. They might be very
upset about something and need you to stand by with the tissues, or they
may have got themselves in a flap and need you to calm them down. Be
careful if you're spending money today because you may not realize how
much you've parted with until it's too late to do anything about it.
Lucky colours are jade and opal.
Lucky numbers are 18 and 28.
Fri Aug 26:
Button Your Lip
- Words spoken in haste could come back to haunt you, so be very
careful before speaking. You're agitated and annoyed at the moment, but
is that really an excuse for taking out your irritation on other people?
Maybe you should reserve your ire for the person who deserves it? There
could also be a contretemps over someone's jealousy or possessiveness to
contend with. What a day!
Lucky colours are purple and pink.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 3.
Sat Aug 27:
Try To Relax
- After yesterday's irritations and upsets, you're in need of some
soothing activities. So how about doing something that makes you take a
more relaxed view of the world, especially if it introduces you to some
beautiful surroundings at the same time? Maybe you could visit an art
gallery, museum or a lovely stretch of countryside?
Lucky colours are blue and honey.
Lucky numbers are 30 and 39.
Sun Aug 28:
- Think about your plans for the future, especially if you want to
come up with some fresh ideas. It will help to bounce your ideas off
someone who can be counted on to listen carefully and give you some
suggestions of their own. If you've got a friend who lives abroad you
might be inspired to ring them up so you can hear their voice.
Lucky colours are jasmine and red.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 30.
Mon Aug 29:
Off On Your Own
- You've been very sociable over recent days but you feel a strong
need for your own company. So try to enjoy some solitude at some point,
otherwise you'll really feel that you're missing out. It's also a good
opportunity to work by yourself because you'll enjoy having the chance
to think without anyone interrupting you.
Lucky colours are grey and azure.
Lucky numbers are 24 and 47.
Tue Aug 30:
- Mirror, mirror, on the wall... You are the fairest of them all
as lovely Venus enters your first house of appearance for a four week
stay! Personal experience tells me that no matter how beautiful you
truly are, all you see when you look in the mirror are your imagined
flaws. Please, dear Libra, love yourself the way you are! Don't wait
until you reach some impossible state of balance and perfection.
Lucky colours are ruby red and snow white.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 10.
Wed Aug 31:
- Be careful when dealing with anyone who has a martyr complex
because they'll go overboard today, as Mercury turns in picky Virgo.
They seem to think they're a saint in human form and they may go on (and
on) about how much they've suffered, as though that somehow makes them
better than everyone else. You long to give them a piece of your mind,
but do you have the courage to risk making them cry?
Lucky colours are crimson and mandarin.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 17.
