AU­GUST

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - HOROSCOPE - JONATHAN CAINER’S MONTHLY FORE­CAST

LEO (24 JUL – 23 AUG) This month, you feel you need to know the an­swer to a cru­cial ques­tion. Ac­tu­ally, though, you al­ready have this. It is just that you dare not yet trust your own judg­ment. You keep won­der­ing whether there is more to find out. Soon, you’ll dis­cover that there is noth­ing else to dis­cover! Then it will be­come clear that you al­ready know all you need to know. And then you will be able to act on this in­for­ma­tion. You need less than you think.You al­ready have more than you re­alise – as Au­gust will prove. Lose your wor­ries. Call MTN 083-900-8536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

virgo

(24 AUG – 23 SEP) Do you have to put up with things you do not like? Only up to a point.You have the power – and the op­por­tu­nity – to bring about change now. But do you se­cretly pre­fer things the way they are? Do you fear that, if you turn ev­ery­thing upside down, you’ll end up worse off? Don’t be reck­less, but do be ready to trust the good idea that is emerg­ing. There is a so­lu­tion to your cur­rent dif­fi­culty. You are smart enough to find it. Call MTN 083-9008536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

li­bra

(24 SEP – 23 OCT) What will you con­cen­trate on this month? The long list of things you can­not, dare not, must not do? Or the pos­si­bil­i­ties, the hopes, the op­por­tu­ni­ties fac­ing you? In re­al­ity, things aren’t quite so sim­ple – big is­sues keep aris­ing. Still, you have the free­dom to make a choice. You can dwell on your frus­tra­tions or make the most of what’s good. Call MTN 083-900-8536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

scor­pio

(24 OCT – 22 NOV) With Mars in your sign this month, you face a sit­u­a­tion that seems to be ‘no laugh­ing mat­ter.’ But still, there’s some­thing amus­ing about it and it will do no harm to ac­knowl­edge the com­edy within a set of cir­cum­stances. The more re­spect you give to a po­ten­tial prob­lem, the more you may some­how im­bue it with a power it need not have. Call MTN 083-900-8536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

sagit­tar­ius

(23 NOV – 21 DEC) ‘To err is hu­man; to for­give, divine.’ No­tice how poet Alexan­der Pope did not com­ment upon the na­ture of ‘for­get­ting’. Per­haps that’s be­cause ‘to for­get’ is sim­ply op­tional. We may think we have no choice about whether or not to keep some­thing in our mem­ory. Some ideas slip like sand through our fin­gers, oth­ers stick like trea­cle to our feet. There is a mis­take that you can avoid mak­ing in Au­gust. There is now a chance for you to be spir­i­tu­ally gen­er­ous and it’s a chance that you re­ally ought to take. As for what needs to be for­got­ten, well, for­get it! Call MTN 083-900-8536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

capri­corn

(22 DEC – 20 JAN) You re­ally don’t need a ball and chain in or­der to feel weighed down at ev­ery step. It is enough just to imag­ine the ex­is­tence of such an im­ped­i­ment – or to fear its ap­pear­ance. If you get yourself into an anx­ious or in­hib­ited frame of mind, you can be re­stricted even with­out a phys­i­cal shackle. Now, what’s re­ally stop­ping you from claim­ing your free­dom in Au­gust? It’s time to start think­ing dif­fer­ently. Call MTN 083-900-8536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

aquar­ius

(21 JAN – 19 FEB) There are some forces that we can­not ig­nore, con­trol or pre­dict. How, then, do we pro­tect our­selves from their im­pact? First, we must en­vis­age ev­ery pos­si­ble prob­lem and do what we can to avoid it. Then, be­fore we drive our­selves into a frenzy of anx­i­ety, we must de­cide that hav­ing duly wor­ried, we should worry no more and may as well re­lax. Call MTN 083-900-8536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

pisces

(20 FEB – 20 MAR) ‘Good times. These are the good times. Leave your cares be­hind. These are the good times...’ Re­mem­ber Chic? That was their song. Not quite a lyri­cal mas­ter­piece. But ap­par­ently the mu­si­cal riff is one of the most sam­pled pieces in mu­si­cal his­tory. And your month ahead? Ah yes. Good times.You may have a thou­sand rea­sons to worry, but you have some­thing in your life that’s won­der­ful. There truly are good times ahead for you. Call MTN 083-900-8536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

aries

(21 MAR – 20 APR) Au­gust will bring you deep ex­pe­ri­ences. What does ‘deep’ mean? Com­pli­cated? Mul­ti­fac­eted? Mys­te­ri­ous? Will you dis­cover, this month, that there’s more to you (and life) than you knew? Yes, but your big­gest dis­cov­ery will be the depth of your sin­cer­ity. When you mean some­thing, you won’t merely mean it, you will re­ally mean it. The same will be true of what you feel. You may have a pro­found re­ac­tion to an in­tense sit­u­a­tion – and that’s ap­pro­pri­ate and noth­ing to fear. Call MTN 083-9008536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

tau­rus

(21 APR – 21 MAY) People born un­der your sign are of­ten ac­cused of be­ing a lit­tle too cau­tious, se­ri­ous or re­spon­si­ble. But those who know you know how play­ful and ad­ven­tur­ous you can be. They also know how hon­ourable you are. It is this de­ter­mi­na­tion to be fair, even when you’re hav­ing fun, or to be wise, even when you are be­ing silly, that some­times gets mis­un­der­stood or causes prob­lems. Your sense of jus­tice will pay div­i­dends this month. Call MTN 083-9008536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

gem­ini

(22 MAY – 22 JUN) ‘A spoon­ful of su­gar helps the medicine go down.’ So sang Mary Pop­pins in the clas­sic Dis­ney film of the same name and who wants to ar­gue? This month brings you first the sweet­ener and then the pill. Will it be a bit­ter one? Yes, if you swal­low it with­out the con­text of the su­gar coat­ing. Au­gust of­fers you a gen­uine rem­edy. It will work swiftly to fix your prob­lem with no un­pleas­ant side ef­fects. The only thing that’s not so great is that you may not ini­tially like the taste. Call MTN 083-900-8536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.

cancer

(23 JUN – 23 JUL) They say,‘The road to hell is paved with good in­ten­tions.’ I’m not sure. What is the road to heaven paved with – bad in­ten­tions? It is pos­si­bly true that the road to hell is of­ten mis­tak­enly taken by those who seek a short cut to heaven. It is some­times through the quest for some­thing in­cred­i­ble that we end up get­ting into a sit­u­a­tion that seems bad. Be cau­tious, but don’t be fear­ful. Call MTN 083900-8536 or Vo­da­com 079-008-4034.
