Daily Horoscope: Monday, Aug 2.
Words may be hard to come by today but you will find your voice again before the weekend arrives. If you are feeling a bit tongue-tied at the moment you should take that as a sign that it is not yet the right time to speak up.
What happens today may not be entirely to your liking but if you stay calm and stay switched on it’s unlikely you will lose out. If the pressure is on all of a sudden you must not panic. Tackle what comes at you one thing at a time.
The only thing to fear is fear itself – you know that but for some strange reason still can’t shake off the feeling that something bad is going to happen. It isn’t. On the contrary, it will be nothing but good news over the next few days.
Why are you playing down your abilities? Is it because you secretly fear that you may not be up to the task that someone in a position of authority is asking you to do? Whatever the reason you need to get past it. Believe in yourself.
Honesty is always the best policy and that applies doubly today, especially on the work front where you must be upfront with colleagues and employers about what you can and cannot do. If you overstate your abilities now you may regret it later on.
You may be confused by what’s been taking place in your immediate environment but don’t worry about it. The planets indicate that by the start of next week everything will make perfect sense again – well, as much sense as it ever does.
Love blossoms in close relationships as communication flows freely. You're intuitive by nature, Cancer, but today you feel especially attuned to others' thoughts, feelings, needs, and desires. Don't be surprised if you grow closer to those around you. Children, in particular, should provide warmth and love. If you're artistically inclined, start a new project today.
You want to make sweeping changes, and that’s good, but don’t make them just yet. Today’s Sun-Uranus link warns if you act in haste now you may regret it later on when you have to waste valuable time clearing up the mess you made.
Any worries you have about a relationship will be laid to rest over the next seven days. The fact is you have rarely been more loved and admired and by the time the new moon on the 28th comes around affection will be flowing freely in both directions.
Venus in the relationship area of your chart encourages you to view life from a more loving perspective and if you can do that this should be a pretty good day. It could even be a great day if you let a special someone get closer to you.
This is a great time for friendships and group activities of all kinds but don’t spread yourself too thin. Decide which projects and which relationships are most important to you and focus on them first. Some things matter and some things don’t.
A new moon in one of the more dynamic areas of your chart will encourage you to be more adventurous over the next few days. Anyone who thinks you are too timid to take risks will be amazed by how bold you have suddenly become.
No matter what may be going on in the world outside your door the most important thing now is what is going on inside your own head. If you have a positive view of life then positive things are sure to happen. Your mind creates your reality.
Give of your best over the next 48 hours – anything less will feel like you are cheating. There is more than enough time to finish what you are working on but you must get serious about it now. The days will pass quicker than you imagine.
Let partners and loved ones and friends and even work colleagues know exactly how you feel at the moment, even if – especially if – you don’t feel good about life. Even Scorpios need emotional support now and again. You’ll get it if you open up.
Try not to go over the top emotionally today because the consequences could be damaging if you go too far and upset people in positions of power. Saturn in your sign demands that you exercise self-control. A calm mind is a must right now.
The most important thing today is that you keep lines of communication open, because the planets warn you are going to need them. You don’t have to pretend that you like certain people but you still have to work with them, so keep talking.
Ignore any and all criticism and do what you know to be right. There will always be people who want to pick holes in your ideas, but only because they don’t have any ideas of their own. Rise above them – you are bigger and better than they’ll ever be.
You have been able to do pretty much what you wanted to do over the past few weeks but now you must recognize that you have limits like everyone else. Money matters will play a much larger role in your affairs, so try not to waste cash.
You could develop a stomachache if you try to sort out all the confused issues of the day, Pisces. There are apt to be too many matters for you to handle alone, so don't even try. It's one of those situations in which you start to untangle one knot only to create another somewhere down the line. It's best to just let the ball of string lie where it is for now.
