Today's birthday (Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017) This year you become more dynamic and creative, if that is even possible. If you are single, you might be viewed as extraordinarily desirable. Someone could make you feel very comfortable. Whatever choice you make, know that it needs to come from the heart. If you are attached, you and your sweetie act like new lovers. Observers often smile as they watch you interact as a couple. Sagittarius often encourages you to take risks.
Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ You might not get the essence of someone’s message. Take a break. If you’re feeling upset, walk around the block, or choose another form of relaxation. You might be amazed by what was actually said. When you detach, your world seems much better. Tonight: Plan a vacation.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ Do your best not to repeat a disagreement with a child or loved one. The two of you simply cannot come to an agreement at this point in time. You might want to reach out to a partner who has the same interests as you. Tonight: Visit over dinner, but keep the conversation light.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★ You might be feeling frayed by today’s events and by the lack of agreement or support from others. Remember that all of this back-and-forth is occurring because you are trying to reach an agreement. View what is happening as a brainstorming session. Tonight: Say “yes” to an offer.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★ You will want to accomplish more, but others seem insecure and unwilling to join you. Distance yourself, for the time being. Issues that arise now may dissolve by tomorrow! Someone might take your words differently than you had intended. Tonight: Kick back and relax.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★★ Your instincts are to avoid getting into a conversation that seems to be going south. You can’t seem to come to a successful conclusion at this point. You might sense that a disagreement could become more important than it currently is. Tonight: Act as if there were no tomorrow.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★ You might sense some tension around your home and obligations. Others have strong opinions, whether you want to hear them or not. Rather than be reactive, just walk away. Anger seems to surface from out of nowhere. Use this time to get past it. Tonight: Out and about.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Make calls, and catch up on others’ news. Don’t allow anyone to whisper negativity in your ears. Stay clear of people who don’t support you. The people who surround you have a greater impact on you than you might realize. Tonight: Join a friend or two for a late dinner.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★ Use caution when dealing with money. You easily could go overboard and spend too much. How you see a personal matter could be excessive in some way. Detach before you make any important decisions; you will be a lot happier as a result. Tonight: Let others pick up the tab.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★★ You feel much more generous and content than you have in quite a while. Make the first move in a discussion. Be sure that a boss or someone you respect gives you a lot of feedback and a different opinion. You might opt to forge a new path as a result. Tonight: Do what you want.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★ Note how much is going on behind the scenes. Play it low-key, and do more listening. As a result, you might think about a personal matter in a different way. You could find that your ideas change because of what you are hearing. Share your thoughts with a friend. Tonight: At home.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ A friend makes all the difference to you, especially at the present moment. This person not only supports you in how you live your life, but he or she also gives you significant feedback. A loved one could be argumentative. Be careful! Tonight: Be more forthright.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ You are in the limelight. A partner seems to have a very different opinion from yours. Both of you could talk until you are blue in the face and still be unwilling to change your mind. Postpone discussions and deal with other matters. Tonight: A relative could be quite opinionated. The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5 Dynamic; 4 Positive; 3 Average; 2 So-so; 1 Difficult.
