SHARE Georgia Nicols horoscopes for Aug. 8, 2016

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions after 12:30 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Expect a few hiccups when dealing with partners and close friends today because the Moon is opposite your sign. It is also opposite wild, wacky Uranus! This makes people unpredictable, obsessed with the unusual and demanding of their freedom. Sound like anyone you know?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your work routine will be interrupted today by computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages, canceled meetings or equipment breakdowns. Or there might be another reason. Be patient with co-workers because, from your point of view, they will make unreasonable demands. Cool your jets.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is an accident-prone day for your kids, which means you have to be more vigilant. Know where they are at all times. Meanwhile, romantic relationships are also rocky! Someone might demand more space or more freedom in the relationship. (Actually, this person might be you.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your home routine will be interrupted because small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur. Perhaps, unexpected company will knock on your door? Possibly, a family member is hung up on a particular subject and just won’t let it go. “Give it a rest!”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is an accident-prone day for your sign, which means you have to slow down and take it easy. Be alert and mindful. Pay attention to everything you say and do. The upside is that you might have a genius-like idea. Who knows? (Don’t be overbearing if something seems important.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Keep an eye on your money and cash flow today because something unexpected will impact you. Could be good; could be not so good. For example, you might find money or you might lose money. You might also be obsessed about buying something or pulling off some kind of deal. Be cool.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign opposing wild, wacky Uranus. This makes you restless, possibly irritable with others. Anything that is unusual and unconventional will intrigue you, perhaps to the exclusion of everything else. Guard against accidents. Keep your eyes open. Be smart.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This could be an unsettling day for you — fortunately, in a minor way. People are a bit difficult and impetuous. (You might feel this way yourself.) It’s easy to jump the gun or make a snap judgment about something, especially if a hidden secret is discovered. “I knew it!”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A friend might surprise you today. Alternatively, you might meet a real character, someone who is bohemian or avant-garde. Many people will do things a bit differently today and thereby surprise others. Keep your eyes open so that you know what’s going on.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Relations with authority figures are dicey today, especially authority figures who are female, like Mom. In the interests of keeping the peace, think before you speak. Don’t just blurt out something without seeing what the possible ramifications are. If someone else is obsessed, listen to them.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a mildly accident-prone day, which means you would be wise to be observant and mindful of everything going on around you. Not only physically but verbally. Therefore, think before you speak. Avoid contentious issues like politics, religion and race — at least, for today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Don’t jump the gun when it comes to discussions about inheritances, shared property and anything to do with money, shared expenses or someone’s debts. Furthermore, stay on top of your banking scenes so that you know what’s happening. “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!”

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Dustin Hoffman (1937) shares your birthday today. You are kind, considerate and generous to others. You are also a grounded, stable workaholic, always responsible and realistic. Precision and perfection are important to you. A new nine-year cycle is beginning for you. This opens up many possibilities. You might start a new business activity or change residences. Open any door because your future is in your hands.
