Yours stars - 5 August


STARS with Arthur Bowman


The area affected by the stars this year is your love life and to some extent your close friendships. These stars will bring happiness and contentment. You will be more outgoing socially and feel better within yourself.


This one is good natured, kind and cheerful. Will be interested in people and want to help those who are battling. An interest in literature and drama. Also interested in music, dance or movement through music.

LEO (July 24 to Aug. 23)

Today brings good stars for personal relationships. I don’t think this means you will spend the day in passionate embrace but you will get along better with the people closest to you which is always a good thing.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 to Sep. 23)

Good vibes for being with friends and associates. The stars you have probably won’t bring much but sometimes it’s nice to just hang around, saying very little and doing nothing much. The evening looks good too.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23)

There will be a small boost associated with work. This is no big deal but what often happens is; someone will come to you for guidance and advice which shows how in some special areas you are held in high regard.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22)

You will do some day dreaming about things to do with long distances. At the same time your mind will wander to religious ceremonies such as christenings, weddings and such. Could you possibly be planning to elope?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 to Dec. 22)

Your mind will drift to love and romance. This is not like you, you usually concentrate on things to do with work and leave thoughts of love and all that for times when you can concentrate on what you are doing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 23 to Jan. 20)

Very good stars for marriage and intimate relationships. These stars might not have you flying to the Moon but they will bring some pretty nice conditions. This is where you can gather a few extra brownie points.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19)

The second day of the week is not usually a good time for work. The weekend just gone is now a dull memory and the weekend to come is too far away so you seem to be caught in a Limbo. The evening looks good though.

PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20)

Venus, Goddess of love and romance in your angle of love and romance will bring some interesting moments. The only problem here is; the aspects bringing this romance are fairly weak so you need to help them along.

ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 20)

A good day to work on your home even if you can’t get away to actually do what you want to do to your home. With your present stars you can make plans for improving the comfort and appearance of various rooms.

TAURUS (Apr. 21 to May 20)

You will talk to or contact relatives or neighbours. Mostly the contact seems to be in order to arrange some sort of party or get-together. Maybe you are arranging a surprise party for someone and Mum’s the word.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)

Good stars for finances. This doesn’t mean you end the day rich and more often than not it doesn’t mean any sort of win but you could buy something at fire-sale prices or maybe you sell something at a nice profit.

CANCER (June 22 to July 23)

A good day to work on your appearance. The stars you have generally favour things like having your hair styled, buying and wearing new clothes or doing stuff to make yourself look better. Don’t let cost be a factor.
