FORECAST FOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1

Posted

ARIES (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ Your get-up-and-go really cannot be stopped, except when a boss or older relative may hassle you or want more control. Finances could be involved. Trust your own judgment. If taking a risk, make sure a loss will not cause a huge problem. Tonight: Beam in more of what you want.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ For most of the daylight hours, you will enjoy greater ease and success. You do not need to push hard, though you should avoid someone you must respond to. This person could be very feisty right now. You do not always have to explain where you are going. Tonight: Vanish!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★ You might feel pressured by everything you have to do. A boss or an older friend may need your help, and he or she can’t stop demanding more of your time. Your mind seems to float into other realms, perhaps involving other people. Tonight: A friend extends a fun invitation.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ You have the ability to read between the lines. You also are aware of someone’s odd behavior. This person might be reticent to be as open as you probably would like. Know that you likely don’t have the control you desire. Tonight: Enjoy a midweek break out on the town.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Your adventuresome spirit comes forward, leaving the more sedate and cautious facets of your personality behind. Enjoy greeting new ideas and people, yet be aware that what works for one person may not work for another. Tonight: Try out a new type of cuisine with a loved one.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ You have become remarkably independent and sure of yourself. When a partner or new friend in your life suddenly decides to become more dominant, a collision could be the outcome. Be open and diplomatic. Tonight: If you like what is happening, go along with the moment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Let someone else take the lead, especially as he or she wants to call the shots. Know that you can choose to make a suggestion or head in another direction. Do not forget that you have the gift of charm and can win others over, if you so choose. Tonight: Definitely not alone.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★ Just because no one agrees with you does not mean that you are wrong. Know that to take the stand that you feel works would require a lot of confidence. Follow your heart and take the lead. A failure here and there is normal. Tonight: The Force is with you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★ You really don’t need to make any excuses. Your creativity soars. Add some imagination to your daily routine, and others are likely to relish the change. A new friend, if you are single, could emerge from out of the blue. Tonight: Your fiery, adventurous personality comes out.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★ If you decide at the last moment to change your plans, do so. Spending some time in a different environment helps loosen up your creativity and thinking. You could come up with a solution to a problem that you had given up on. Tonight: Act as if your home is your castle.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ Be willing to approach an issue among close friends or family in a different way. Recognize that what you feel works might be perfect for you, but not for others. Imagine what they might need and why. A positive interaction becomes possible. Tonight: At a favorite spot.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ Don’t worry if you feel less energized than you have in the past few days. Take some extra time to catch up on your budget and see how much flexibility you have. A last-minute vacation by the water could be just what you need. Tonight: Throw around ideas for the weekend.
