Fri Aug 1:
- It's difficult to keep track of your thoughts today because
they're whirling around in so many different directions. This will make
you seem rather absent-minded to others because you'll be so easily
distracted. There are also more interruptions to contend with than
usual, making you long for some peace and quiet. So do yourself a favour
and have some time on your own, otherwise you'll end up at screaming
Lucky colours are khaki and aubergine.
Lucky numbers are 39 and 65.
Sat Aug 2:
- Your energy levels are very erratic today, making it difficult
to get through the day smoothly. Try to treat your body with respect,
because existing on a meagre or unhealthy diet will only make the
problem worse. If you're at work, a colleague might blow hot and cold,
or there could be an unexpected encounter with a certain person that
leaves you wondering what on earth is going on.
Lucky colours are platinum and dark yellow.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 53.
Sun Aug 3:
- Approach life from as practical an angle as possible today. You
aren't interested in theories or suppositions - you want to deal with
the facts. This makes it an ideal day to sort out problems at work or to
unravel a tangle of red tape. If you're talking to someone important on
the phone, it will help to take notes of your conversation in case you
need to refer to it again.
Lucky colours are burgundy and white.
Lucky numbers are 2 and 14.
Mon Aug 4:
- Watch out for someone who's thinking and behaving like a martyr.
They obviously want your approval and respect, but they're going about
it in the wrong way. There may also be more than a hint of
self-satisfaction in their behaviour, making you suspect that they're
actually on an ego trip. But whether you dare to say any of this is
Lucky colours are aqua and apricot.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 12.
Tue Aug 5:
- Make the most of your social life today, whether that means
going to a big party or simply having a quick drink with a friend.
You're in a very gregarious and outgoing mood, which is guaranteed to
attract plenty of attention, especially from the opposite sex. This is
just what you want if you're hoping to dazzle a certain someone with
your charms and leave them gasping for more.
Lucky colours are smoky quartz and dark pink.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 70.
Wed Aug 6:
Follow The Rules
- You're able to make some very powerful and long-lasting changes
to your life today, provided that you follow some important rules. For a
start, you should consult anyone who'll be affected by what you're
proposing, and if possible you should get their approval or co-operation
before going ahead. You must also keep control of your emotions and be
very aware of what you're doing.
Lucky colours are bright red and deep gold.
Lucky numbers are 24 and 55.
Thu Aug 7:
Cut To The Chase
- You're in an incisive frame of mind, which is perfect for
reaching decisions. Right now you have no desire to beat about the bush,
nor to fudge the issue, and so you'll want to go straight to the heart
of the matter. You'll use no-nonsense language, which some people might
find uncompromising. Nevertheless, you have to speak as you find at the
Lucky colours are peach and plum.
Lucky numbers are 48 and 60.
Fri Aug 8:
Getting To Grips
- You're in a practical mood today, so get to grips with anything
that currently needs your attention. For instance, you might want to go
over some accounts or pay a few bills, or you could have to check the
terms of an insurance policy. You won't flinch from whatever it is you
have to do, even if it isn't very interesting or fun. You'll simply do
what you need to do.
Lucky colours are pistachio and sable.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 2.
Sat Aug 9:
- Be wary about making wild statements or exaggerated claims today
because they'll come back to haunt you. You are likely to be caught out,
which could leave you with a red face. Although you're very steamed up
about something that offends your principles or beliefs, try not to turn
it into a major drama or use it as an excuse to lose your temper about
Lucky colours are navy and olive.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 49.
Sun Aug 10:
- If you're currently working on a creative or artistic project,
think how proud you'll feel if you can put the finishing touches to it
during the coming fortnight. You'll then have the confidence to start
something that's even more ambitious and which stretches your talents
still further. This will also be a good time to smooth over any problems
with a loved one that have been bugging you recently.
Lucky colours are teal blue and burgundy.
Lucky numbers are 18 and 70.
Mon Aug 11:
- Play your cards right and you'll be able to form a strong
emotional rapport with someone you admire and respect. If you're really
lucky, they might tuck you under their wing or grant you some favours. It
will help if you're polite to them but don't fall into the trap of
buttering them up too much because that will make them wonder what you
really want from them.
Lucky colours are peacock blue and iridescent green.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 20.
Tue Aug 12:
- Charming Venus makes the coming four weeks a fantastic time for
being with friends and kindred spirits. It will do you the world of good
to be with people who are on the same wavelength as you, and you might
even find that you have a lot more in common than you first realized.
There is even a chance that someone who starts as a friend ends up as a
lover or partner.
Lucky colours are lavender and almond.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 13.
Wed Aug 13:
- There are some very pleasant surprises in store for you today,
especially where your work is concerned. You might hit it off so well
with a colleague or customer that it almost seems as though you're
flirting with each other -- and maybe you are! If a relationship gets
off the ground today it will be fun-loving, unusual and very
Lucky colours are strawberry and pineapple.
Lucky numbers are 37 and 50.
Thu Aug 14:
- Remember to make a little time to yourself, dear Libra. You need
some solitude and peace, even if the only way to get it is to lock
yourself in the bathroom or go for a long walk. There are certain things
that you need to mull over, and you won't be able to do that properly if
lots of other people are milling about. You might also enjoy doing some
meditation or creative visualization.
Lucky colours are oyster and burgundy.
Lucky numbers are 37 and 10.
Fri Aug 15:
- Seize the opportunity of an in-depth conversation with someone
who's on your wavelength. You'll enjoy talking to them, and possibly
even sharing some secrets with them. If you're hoping that this person
thinks of you as more than just a friend, you'll get a good idea now of
whether you're barking up the wrong tree or they reciprocate your
Lucky colours are tangerine and navy.
Lucky numbers are 39 and 4.
Sat Aug 16:
Time For Reflection
- Do some hard thinking between now and the end of August.
Ideally, you should re-evaluate decisions that you've taken recently and
make sure that you're happy about them. Once you've done that, you can
extend your thoughts to the past and reflect on some of the things that
have happened to you in your life. You may get an entirely new
perspective on them as a result.
Lucky colours are peach and plum.
Lucky numbers are 29 and 52.
Sun Aug 17:
Reality And Optimism
- You strike a good balance between reality and optimism today, so
it's a brilliant chance to make plans and lay the foundations for future
projects. You're also full of common sense without it turning you into a
stick-in-the-mud. You'll do well if you can work by yourself for a
while, because that will help your mind to focus on whatever is most
important at the moment.
Lucky colours are blackberry and mahogany.
Lucky numbers are 15 and 38.
Mon Aug 18:
- It's a strange day because there's a lot you want to say, but
there may be reasons why you feel you have to stay silent. Perhaps
you're worried about hurting someone's feelings if you blurt out your
thoughts, and that's certainly possible now. You might also accidentally
reveal more than you intended if you speak without thinking it through
first. So be careful!
Lucky colours are brilliant white and blood red.
Lucky numbers are 40 and 16.
Tue Aug 19:
All At Once
- Everything seems to be happening at once today. There could be
lots of distractions to cope with; important pieces of paper might go
astray or you may have to deal with an appliance that refuses to behave
itself. All this is likely to make you want to tear your hair out with
frustration unless you can distance yourself from all this mayhem and
Lucky colours are lemon and aqua.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 4.
Wed Aug 20:
- Why the long face? You're feeling rather downcast and lacklustre
right now, and everything seems to involve too much effort. Do your best
to face up to whatever is wrong, and also to view it in a rational
light. That's because it is highly likely that you're making mountains
out of molehills, and allowing even minor snags to get you down. A short
break might help.
Lucky colours are lime and sapphire blue.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 67.
Thu Aug 21:
Kick Up Your Heels
- Give yourself some light relief today, whether that means going
out with friends, attending a big social event or losing yourself in a
favourite hobby. You're about to enter a more reflective phase now, so
make the most of this chance to kick up your heels and make merry. You
might make a new chum along the way, which will be a bonus.
Lucky colours are beige and tangerine.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 77.
Fri Aug 22:
- During the next four weeks there will be times when you long to
be left to your own devices. That's because you'll be feeling quite
solitary and contemplative, and won't feel like making the effort to be
sociable. You may have to explain these phases to your nearest and
dearest, so they don't think you've suddenly gone off them or that
you've got something to hide.
Lucky colours are azure and oyster.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 41.
Sat Aug 23:
Heart On Your Sleeve
- This is an excellent day for talking about things that are dear
to your heart or which you normally like to keep secret. You'll be
choosy about who you talk to, because you'll have to feel that you trust
them. If someone wants to confide in you, make sure that you can keep
their secrets. If you can't it might be better to suggest that they talk
to someone else.
Lucky colours are teal blue and purple.
Lucky numbers are 34 and 55.
Sun Aug 24:
- Do you believe in telepathy? If not, you soon will because it's
working strongly for you right now. For instance, you might be thinking
about someone only to have them ring up a minute later, or you and a
loved one might both start talking about the same thing at the same
time. If distance separates you from a certain person, you may feel
their presence as though they were standing next to you.
Lucky colours are grapefruit and terracotta.
Lucky numbers are 35 and 22.
Mon Aug 25:
- Certain worries have been plaguing you recently and today's New
Moon is encouraging you to do something about them during the coming
fortnight. If you can't alter the circumstances that you find yourself
in at the moment, then you need to alter your attitude towards them. You
may not be able to do this on your own, so consider seeking professional
help if needs be.
Lucky colours are banana and apricot.
Lucky numbers are 78 and 12.
Tue Aug 26:
On Your Conscience
- This is a really good day for dealing with anything that's been
on your conscience recently. It will be a huge relief to take some
constructive action at long last, and it will also go better than you
might have imagined. You have quite a lot of energy right now and you'll
enjoy using up some of it in domestic chores, such as doing some
cleaning or gardening.
Lucky colours are aqua and butterscotch.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 16.
Wed Aug 27:
- You're in a very erratic mood today, making it difficult to
settle down to anything for long before you start to get bored or
irritated. Ideally, you should have as many distractions and changes of
pace as possible now, to keep yourself interested in what's going on
around you. Concentrate when using sharp or hot objects to avoid
Lucky colours are dusky pink and silvery blue.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 27.
Thu Aug 28:
Sort Them Out
- If there have been problems with you-know-who recently, this is
a good day to sort them out. You won't have to make a huge production
out of it, either, because a few quiet words in their ear might be all
that's needed to get things back on track. Alternatively, if someone
wants to reason with you, you'll be very receptive to what they're
Lucky colours are sable and champagne.
Lucky numbers are 78 and 44.
Fri Aug 29:
Logic Or Emotion?
- You're torn between logic and emotion today, with the result
that you'll keep changing your mind about what you think. This will be
made worse if you ask others for their opinions because you'll quickly
decide that they're right, before moving on to the next person and
probably revising your views again in the light of what they say. You'll
end up going round in circles if you carry on like this!
Lucky colours are smoky quartz and white quartz.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 63.
Sat Aug 30:
Out And About
- Get out and about as much as possible today. Ideally, you should
forget about your usual routine and do something completely different
for a change, because it will be a real tonic. You'll also enjoy getting
together with people who have a refreshing take on life and who can help
you to see it from another angle.
Lucky colours are marmalade and dark brown.
Lucky numbers are 39 and 19.
Sun Aug 31:
- Your emotions are in rather a fragile state today, and you're
quite likely to imagine that someone has slighted you when that isn't
really what's happened at all. Maybe they're simply too busy to spend as
much time with you as you'd like. Resist the temptation to tell yourself
that this is the end of the road, or that you're going to finish the
relationship through sheer pique. Wait and see what happens during the
next few days before taking such desperate measures.
Lucky colours are cream and aubergine.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 31.
