Horoscope for Aug. 9, 2011

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you are self-assured and persistent about whatever it is you take on, this can be a productive day for you. Should you encounter any resistance, push the pedal to the metal.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Unless you follow through on whatever opportunities are available to you, regardless of how small or large they might be, you won’t be successful. The ball is in your court.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Just because your first effort fizzles, you shouldn’t give up too easily. If you’re ready to keep up the effort, your probabilities for success will be greatly enhanced.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Just because someone isn’t in total accord with you, it doesn’t mean she or he doesn’t think you’re smart. Don’t be defensive; try to see the issue from this person’s perspective.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Treating others in a self-serving manner could cause them to back off all right, but to what avail? They’re apt be reluctant to be your friend going forward.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — An unreasonable person can be turned around if you continually treat this individual with respect and courtesy, in spite of his or her behavior. The contrast will make your case.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If you are working on something important, be sure to monitor a co-worker who usually does things in a hasty, careless manner, so that he or she doesn’t mar your efforts.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — In order to be effective, your priorities must be kept in proper order. Be sure you take care of essential matters first and save frivolous trifles until later, when all your work is done.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) — When the going gets tough, you’re likely to get even tougher. You’ll refuse to be intimidated, but instead will welcome the chance to prove just how resilient and hardy you are.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don’t shoot down a great idea just because it doesn’t come from you. Achieving something especially good should be more important than who thought of what.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Try not to be too much of a spendthrift when it comes to your resources. Just because it’s easy to take money out of the bank doesn’t mean it’ll be easy to put any back.
