Horoscope for Aug. 20, 2011
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't deliberately seek out challenging developments, but if you should encounter any, don't let them intimidate you either. Just remember how well you work under pressure.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Anything that displeases you can be turned into a pleasurable experience if you have the mindset to make it so. You should just try not to take yourself or life too seriously.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Instead of moaning and groaning over your lack of funds and not being able to do anything, take some time to search out ways to secure a second source of earning. It'll pay off.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If your mate or companion has a better way of doing something, you should back off a bit and play a supportive role. You don't always have to be the one in charge.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- In order to perform at your best, you must first be enthusiastic about whatever it is that you are undertaking to do. If this one element is lacking, your efforts will reflect it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Because you're apt to be in a greatly sociable mood, it's important for you to share your time with those who feel the same. Seek out companions whose smiles and laughter drown out all frowns.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Even if it appears that all the breaks are going to others and not to you, don't let on how you feel. You'd be embarrassed later when it turns out you made out the best.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Your ability to be both a keen observer and a quick learner will enable you to gather valuable information and knowledge that will go right over the heads of others. Don't waste it.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Material conditions look pretty good for you, so use this opportunity to solve a financial problem or to go bargain hunting. In either case you could save yourself some money.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It isn't your nature to fit comfortably into a subordinate position. You might not need to be the boss, but, at the very least, you need to be your own person, doing things your way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- When everything else seems to be failing you, you are likely to fall back on your own common sense and/or instincts. You'll use a little of both to solve a perplexing problem.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Regardless of how negative the signals appear to be, don't lose hope. If your logic is failing you, then rely on your intuition to help you fulfill your desires and expectations.
