What your stars are saying: 7 August



This year will bring minor disappointments as people you trust let you down in a very public way. You will tend to fret and worry about things which will never happen, leaving yourself open to ridicule from your peers.


This one will be fond of travel and change. Will be fascinated by things that go bump in the night. Also interested in aquatic sports and could do very well up to and possibly including Olympic standard. A winner.

LEO (July 24 to Aug 23)

You decide to bring something to an end and you actually think you have finished this thing but deceptive Neptune is at work here so you could well be fooling yourself. A day when you should check and double check.

VIRGO (Aug 24 to Sept 23)

A busy day with lots of running around but most of the activity is in order to get stuff for someone else, possibly partner or mate. Better make sure you are looking for the right things, make a list of the items.

LIBRA (Sept 24 to Oct 23)

Somehow there seems to be problems over work and pay. Maybe you think since you are doing the work of someone in a higher grade you should be getting the pay for that grade. The boss doesn’t see things that way.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 22)

There are good stars for love and romance but first you need to use that Scorpio sensitivity to create a romantic ambience. Fortunately this is easier for you than for most signs so you go ahead and impress someone.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23 to Dec 22)

You will find yourself working on changing your environment but for some reason you seem to be working on it from the background. You won’t exactly work on it furtively but you won’t be advertising your actions.

CAPRICORN (Dec 23 to Jan 20)

There will be travel problems and you will find yourself relying on friends or associates for a backup. Maybe there is some mechanical problem looming and you need to know someone will help out if necessary.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21 to Feb 19)

Sometimes the stars you have today lead to a dispute over costs or a fuss involving money. This is where you need to be very sure of your facts, you don’t want to be embarrassed by being publicly shown to be wrong.

PISCES (Feb 20 to Mar 20)

Today brings embarrassment and confusion over travel. Maybe someone is going away and you not really sure about where they are going or when they are coming back. Why not write these things down on your calendar?

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 20)

There are hidden expenses coming up. The trouble is; these expenses really are hidden so you won’t be aware of them until they happen. The bad news is; the expenses could crop up today. This will make your day.

TAURUS (Apr 21 to May 20)

Today brings good stars for marriage and intimate relationships. The good part of these stars is; a work dream will come true at the same time. Today is good for dinner out so arrange a romantic dinner for two.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)

You will be busy working so you could well miss an opportunity to go over to some job you really like. Sometimes it’s a matter of first come, first served and today only brings a narrow window of opportunity.

CANCER (June 22 to July 23)

Very good stars for things to do with young people. Mostly these stars apply to things to do with babies so it is possible you will get news of a pregnancy or maybe even a birth in the family. Cause for celebration?
