Horoscope for Aug. 6

Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Aha! A busy fast-paced day to begin your week! You’re running errands and talking to everyone, and you’ve got a finger in every pie. You might be overextended socially speaking. Between sports events, children’s activities, the arts and social obligations, you’re stretched to the limit!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Money is on your mind today, but after all, you are the financial wizard of the zodiac. Conversations between family members and about family businesses will go well today because people are upbeat, optimistic and inclined to be a bit ambitious. Eh wot?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which gives you a slight edge over all the other signs. By all means, use this to your advantage! Meanwhile, it’s a positive way to start off your week because you feel like a winner. People are mesmerized by your enthusiasm.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Guard against going overboard financially today. You might buy something that’s a bit over the top. (Save the receipt.) Or you might swing a financial deal that is a tad optimistic. Nevertheless, this is a positive money day. You can smell it in the air!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You feel confident and optimistic today. Some of you are swaggering. (You know who you are.) Your enthusiasm about something will allow you to drum up the support you need. Oh yes, everyone’s listening to you!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a favorable way to begin your week. You feel happy in your own skin and quite secure. You’re ready to earn money and spend it on beautiful things. And you’re ready to work hard. But your strongest advantage is your positive frame of mind and your belief in yourself.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A popular day! You will enjoy schmoozing with others today and they will be happy to see you because everyone is upbeat. You’re willing to be the leader of the pack and aim for big objectives. You believe anything is possible and others will follow your suit. (Or your skirt.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Relations with parents, bosses and people in authority are positive today. Admittedly, they might be a tad optimistic but why not? “No guts, no glory!” Or consider Robert Browning’s Andrea del Sarto: “A man’s reach should exceed his grasp.” (A woman’s always does.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Relations with bosses, parents and VIPs are positive today. People are in a good mood. Naturally, this paves the way for pleasant, mutually supportive conversations. Guard against a tendency to try too hard or to agree to a goal that is unrealistic. Stay real.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You want to do something exciting will expand your world. If you can travel, you definitely want to do this. Something stimulating! You might have grand plans to explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine or the law. If you study or enroll in a course, this will be excellent. Do something.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

If you want cooperation from others today, look for common ground. Your ambition is aroused, which is why you are considering something you usually might think was difficult or impossible. You need someone to believe in you today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You can win others over to your side at work today. The trick will be to find an objective you both want to achieve. This way you can work together instead of at cross purposes. No need to compete. Work-related travel is likely. This is something you will look forward to doing.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Michelle Yeoh (1962) shares your birthday today. You are expressive and readily adaptable. You are also compassionate and caring. This is the perfect year to explore meditation, yoga or any discipline that will help you to get a better understanding of who you are. This is also a year of teaching and learning. What you learn this year will be crucial for your progress and success next year.
