Since the SUN is skipping its usual one August issue, these suggestions for various signs cover a three week period, from August 12 to September 3. The paragraphs are slightly longer than usual and leave little space here for introductory comments.
It's important to know that the Sun moves into the Zodiac sign Virgo on August 22 this year. Virgo is symbolized by a woman holding a sheath of wheat. It is a time when much can come to fruition, when a good amount of help is given. It is also a time when health becomes important, and sometimes a matter for concern. Virgo is concerned with details and can be very picky and overly critical without positive results in mind, especially when a broad perspective of involvement with life is not held.
Use this time to think critically about events and people in your life, but do it with good feelings and progress in mind.
When reading the following suggestions be sure and read your rising sign and Moon sign as well as your Sun (birth) sign.
ARIES (March 20-April 18)- If you're smart you've been reviewing plans and actions that have brought you to where ' you're at now. Your urge to be impulsive is more under control, so it's also a good time to plan seriously for the future. Starting around the end of August pay particular attention to emotional responses and try not to let your own get out of hand. Speak with greater clarity when you express your feelings.
TAURUS (April 19-May 19)- You may not feel as though financial matters are as easy to think about as they have been these past weeks; but if you've been applying yourself, you could see more results during this period. Don't let your thoughts scatter-setbacks call for more application of positive criticism. Your love solidifies when you think of concrete possibilities and work to make it happen.
GEMINI (May 20-June 20)- Your variety of involvement can take a turn for the better towards the end of August if you take the time needed to organize yourself. Try not to get lost in thought, make notes more often and enjoy the eminent possibility for easy and fruitful communication. Your temper will get out of hand unless you curtail it.
CANCER (June 21-JuIy 21)-This may not be a particularly easy time for you. Your deep-felt emotions get in the way of communicating, sometimes leading to outbursts you aren't used to. Business may seem too hard to focus on. Spend more time having fun developing new ways to handle familiar situations and clean up old business. Don't get too down: all things change with time.
LEO (July22-August21)- Beware of laziness and boredom. This can be a good time even though things may not materialize the way you have imagined them. Financial matters are easier to approach if you are more realistic and are not deluded into thinking things will work out without hard work. Put energy into relating with more people.
VIRGO (August 22-September 21)- Your friends and lovers are very valuable to you during this time. Don't be as critical of them as you have been, you have too many problems of your own. Business can scatter in your thoughts, and an imagination not applied in objective ways can lead to disappointments. If you set to work with a positive attitude, this could be a very nice time for you with lots of help from and for your friends.
LIBRA (September 22-October 22)- This is a turbulent period of your life. Your feelings go very deep and can surface without preparation unless you take care to organize your thoughts. Business can expand and you can do more, but only when you include more people and spend time helping things progress in the easiest ways you can see. Concentrate on communicating more freely.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 20)- Your problems with business can let up some now. As long as you remember you can't get anywhere alone and rely more on close associates, you will find progress is in front of you. Set backs come when yon create illusions that don't have effect in reality. Control your thoughts and get things taken tare of.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21-December 20)- It may be hard for you to discriminate about the facts involved in your aspirations. Be careful when you are deciding on what plans to implement and be sure you are realistic. When you work at it you can discipline your creativeness and not be discouraged by limitations you may face. Try to enjoy friends without being too critical of them.
CAPRICORN (December 21-January 20)- You are very concerned about your closest relationships. Communicating may be very tense for you, but at the same time a lot of your plans can be realized and come to fruition. Money won't be as easy to deal with as it has been, but your friends, lovers and health, for the most part, are strong and help you through the tenseness.
AQUARIUS (January 21-February 18)- Hardships you may be going through with your business will not occupy your mind as much as the deep feelings you are developing about the people you live, love and work with. You want to be effective, and this is a good time to expand your financial endeavors so you can do more good for more people. If you discipline yourself, rather than focus on limitations, you will learn to do a lot.
PECES (February 19-March 19)- It is very hard for you to reach the goals you set out to achieve during this time. It is very easy for your mind and imagination to wander beyond actual events, in your work particularly. You can also be easily irritated by those closest to you. If you are determined to overcome your wandering tendencies and put your mind to dealing only with solid facts, you can set yourself up for some good and more prosperous times soon.
