WEEK OF AUGUST 11 – 17

Aires – March 21 – April 20:

Don’t let your emotions get the best of you in a heated situation. You can come out on top if you remain calm, think through your responses.

Taurus – April 21 – May 21:

There are a few ways you can play an upcoming situation. Taking a back seat and letting another person lead the way may be the smartest strategy.

Gemini – May 22 – June 21:

A few opportunities may drop into your lap. However, just because things come about easily does not mean they are the right choices for right now.

Cancer – June 22 – July 22:

Keeping things bottled up to the last minute seems to be the way you have been operating. You may want to try sharing your feelings, seeking feedback.

Leo – July 23 – Aug. 23:

Wearing your emotions on your sleeve may get you attention, but it won’t necessarily be the kind of attention you were hoping for. Reconsider what you share.

Virgo – Aug. 24 – Sept. 22:

It can be challenging to relinquish control, but that is just what you will have to do at some point this week. This will be a good lesson to learn.

Libra – Sept. 23 – Oct. 23:

It’s hard to see someone’s perspective when you have never gone through this particular situation. Keep that in mind when supporting a loved one.

Scorpio – Oct. 24 – Nov. 22:

All it takes is a subtle change of perception to turn a situation around. Start by taking a few risks outside of your comfort zone for some new inspiration.

Sagittarius – Nov. 23 – Dec. 21:

Be proud of your accomplishments. Just be sure not to come across as boastful. You don’t want to come across as bragging.

Capricorn – Dec. 22 – Jan. 20:

Asking for help is not admitting weakness. If you feel you are in over your head, call reinforcements. Then you can get back on track more quickly.

Aquarius – Jan. 21 – Feb. 18:

Good fortune is coming your way, and you can certainly spread the wealth if you desire. Chances are there are a few other people who can use a smile in the weeks to come.
