SHARE Georgia Nicols horoscopes for Aug. 6, 2016

Moon Alert

Not until noon Chicago time do we have the all clear to shop and do business. At that time, the Moon moves from Virgo into Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Job-related issues might get you down today because others are critical and uncooperative. Partly, this is your own point of view. Believe me, things are not as bad as they appear. Nevertheless, do not ask for permission or approval, especially from foreign interests.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If you need funding or financial support from another source, this is a poor day to swing this because others will not respond favorably. You might be disappointed in your fair share of something. You might also feel left out of the process regarding children or a vacation.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a poor day for family discussions because people are negative and critical. Today your glass is not half empty; you don’t even have a glass! Just cope as best you can and remind yourself that you will tend to see the darker side of things. “I see dead people.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

It’s easy to fall into negative state of mind today or be critical of others. Mercury is at odds with Saturn, and Mercury influences your thinking. You might even have to say goodbye to someone today. Just go with the flow.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your finances might look grim today. (Things are always darkest before they get pitch black.) Therefore, financial discussions might not go well. You certainly won’t want to spend big. This is just one of those days.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today Mercury is in Virgo at odds with Saturn. This will help you do heavy mental work and tackle any job that requires attention to detail because your critical faculties are sharp. You won’t overlook a thing. However, your words might be sharp as well. Easy does it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your research skills are tops today. If you need to find answers to old problems, this is the day to do so. Be careful about being caught up in narrow-minded limitations and wanting to know everything ahead of time before you act. Relax.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today you have mouse mind not eagle mind, which is why it’s a good day to work with tiny details and stay focused. Relations with friends, and especially relations with a group, could be difficult because you feel lonely or cut off from others. No worries.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a poor day to ask for approval or permission from bosses, parents and VIPs. If you try to do this, their reply will be, “Talk to the hand.” Or worse — they might nix your project. Therefore, give authority figures a wide berth on a day like today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Travel plans look bleak today. Likewise, opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law have evaporated. But not really. This is just how things appear today because people, including you, are in a negative frame of mind. Fortunately, this is short-lived.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is not a good day for important discussions about how to divide or share anything. Do not discuss inheritances and issues regarding shared property because nothing will go well. People are tightfisted and critical. Knowing this, why would you even go there? “Run away!”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s a poor day for important discussions about practically anything because people are critical, petty and caught up in their own worlds. This makes you feel lonely and out of sync with others. Yes, things look gloomy but that’s just today’s illusion.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Lucille Ball (1911-1989) shares your birthday today. You are rewarded by helping others because you are genuinely benevolent. You love to learn anything new and are very innovative. Great news! You are now heading into one of the most powerful years of your life, a time of accumulation. Whatever you have done in the past will now ripen because it’s your time of fruition. (This is a good year to buy and sell.)
