Horoscope for Aug. 22, 2011
August 22, 2011
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Be extremely selective regarding your companions. If you aren’t, there could be a troublemaker in the group who will be responsible for making everybody feel uncomfortable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you are unduly critical of others, it is likely because you’re taking what they say out of context and misinterpreting innocent comments as intentional “zappers.” Think positively.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — By attempting to mix business with pleasure, you could unintentionally cause someone in the group to feel uneasy. Make sure everyone is okay with the situation at hand.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’s fine that your competitive instincts are easily aroused, as long as you don’t get emotional over winning or losing and behave badly. Be a good sport about the outcome.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — When among friends, let sleeping dogs lie. Even if you bring up an old incident that you think funny, it could evoke a bitter reaction from the person involved.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — It isn’t always too smart to impose unsolicited advice on another. If the situation fails to work out well, he or she may blame you even if your counsel wasn’t the problem.
