SHARE Horoscope for Monday, August 2, 2021

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 2:30 to 4 a.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Something might hamper your social plans. Or perhaps, your responsibilities with children will increase for some reason. In fact, anything to do with the arts, sports and the entertainment world might make greater demands on your life. It’s just for today.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your involvement with a parent might be more important or there might be increased responsibilities regarding taking care of a parent? Perhaps some kind of issue will arise at home in which you feel limited or held back because of certain restrictions. Work with what you’ve got.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Plans for a short trip or your involvement with daily contacts including siblings, relatives and neighbors might be hampered by something. Something might restrict you. Someone might tell you why you can’t do something. Hey, don’t let this get you down.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Financial matters might be a concern. Your access to finances might be restricted. You might be disappointed in your fair share of something or you might find it difficult to deal with banks, financial institutions or partners. Bide your time.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might feel cut off from those who are closest to you. Don’t let this drag you down. Don’t be discouraged because many people feel a bit “removed” from others because the sun is opposite Saturn. (This does not promote cozy relations with anyone!)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Don’t be discouraged if you feel cut off from others or even lonely today. This isn’t an illusion but it is certainly a temporary dark cloud on your horizon. Many people feel this way today. It will be gone by tomorrow. Therefore, go with the flow.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might be disappointed when relating to groups, clubs and organizations today because something might thwart your attempts to deal with others or push through your ideas. This same minor difficulty might arise in a friendship? It’s temporary — no worries.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a poor day to ask the boss or a parent for permission or approval for anything because very likely, their response will be, “Talk to the hand.” Knowing this, table your request for another day. Meanwhile, keep your head down and your powder dry.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you might encounter rules and regulations, which limit your plans or your activities. (This sort of goes with the territory of just being alive.) Go with the flow and don’t make a fuss. Don’t be discouraged. Tomorrow is another day. And a more promising one!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Financial matters might discourage you today. You might especially be disappointed when dealing with partners or others regarding taxes, debt, inheritances and insurance issues. Red-tape limitations, rules and regulations might get in the way. Relax — this is temporary.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Don’t be disappointed if you feel your relations with a close friend or a partner are a bit distant today. Conversations might feel like two ships passing in the night. This influence affects everyone and it is mildly limiting and possibly discouraging. But hey, it is brief!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Something to do with your health, your job or even your pet might cause you concerns today. You might have to make an extra effort to get the results you want. Or perhaps you cannot do something because you are limited or you are restricted by some situation. Patience is your best ally.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Mary-Louise Parker (1964) shares your birthday. You are witty and entertaining, which is why people enjoy your company. Personally, you value your independence and have strong opinions. Because of your excellent verbal skills, you are very convincing! This year is more lighthearted and sociable. You might explore pleasing changes to your appearance or your routine or where you live. Others might seek your advice this year.
