Horoscope for Aug. 5
August 5, 2009
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – There is a strong possibility that you might have to make some concessions in order to placate an important associate. Sometimes being cooperative isn’t easy – but it is smart.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Regardless of how tired, bored or disinterested you are, don’t get off on the wrong foot with your superiors. A failure to do what’s expected of you is likely to cause you some big problems.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Rather than subject yourself to an arrogant, annoying acquaintance who makes you feel uncomfortable, don’t go anywhere near this person. He or she is apt to be in rare form and more annoying than usual.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Having all chiefs in the household is likely to make for a disruptive day. Set an example of bending your will a bit, and it will encourage others to do the same.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – When challenging the views or opinions of others, be cognizant of the fact that they are likely to respond in ways that expose your vulnerably as well. You’ll get back what you give.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – When shopping today, if a salesperson should try to pressure you into buying something you don’t want, there is no need to be polite. The quicker you walk away, the better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – It’s important to be realistic when evaluating your competition if you have any hopes of survival. Your opposition is likely to save his or her best for last, so be prepared.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Difficulties might arise when an associate tries to palm off a distasteful job that no one wants to do. Unless you’re prepared, you won’t be able to fend him or her off that easily. Be ready.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) – If you are subjected to the company of people you don’t like, chances are it’ll be your own fault. Busy yourself in activities that others wouldn’t dare interrupt. You won’t miss a thing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Don’t use cannons to oppose another when a popgun will suffice. Coming on more forcefully than that which is necessary would invite an overwhelming, angry response.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – It is never a good day to discuss religion, politics or other volatile subjects when it is uncalled for, so hold fire should another whose views are in direct opposition to yours say something provocative.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Be careful with regard to financial matters because things could take a peculiar twist. In an arrangement where you are expecting something from another, you could end up being the giver instead.
