Horoscope for August 4, 2016

ARIES: Definitely wanting more attention at the moment, you will be aiming for the spotlight at parties, and given to grand gestures even at work. You are certainly not in the mood for dreary chores or fitting in with instructions. Indeed, your creative spirit will be demanding freedom. What you want now, you want passionately and have no intention of going without. Heart-centred, and rather flamboyant, you will be casting your spell over everyone you meet, with your great enthusiasm and sparkling personality.
TAURUS: Maybe you don’t want to put yourself out and about as much socially or romantically at the moment. But watch that it isn’t a slight fear of rejection that is making you disappear into your shell. Just cuddle up close to those who make you feel warm and wonderful. You will want to be the one with your hands on the reins of control but you will need to force yourself to share more. Your need to be in charge might to disagreements.
GEMINI: You will much prefer now to keep the mood upbeat, rather than delve into intense discussions on dark subjects. Maybe you’ll come across sometimes as slightly superficial because you flit lightly from subject to subject. But you’ll be a wow at parties, since your chit-chat is second to none. You cannot relate romantically at the moment without a good mental connection as well. Lovers need to be pals and on the same wavelength. Smoochy moments need to be balanced by mental stimulation as well.
CANCER: You will be putting a high value on loyalty and physical closeness. You want more hugs, caresses, kisses and tangible gestures of affection than usual. Don’t let insecurity make you too possessive or stubborn. Just be affectionate and steadfast. More passive than energetic at the moment, you want emotional partners to make the first move, and then fit in with what suits you. But you can be disappointed if you do not reach out once in a while to make an effort.
LEO: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be lively, passionate, romantic and outgoing. You won’t be pushed into a corner but will demand attention and throw yourself with enthusiasm into enjoying yourself. Just try not to sound too bossy with loved ones. Your finances will be in better shape though you’re likely to spend all the surplus. From September you’ll be more tolerant and broad-minded, finding that what was holding you back was too narrow an outlook.
VIRGO: You seem to be in a position to give more now, and you are undoubtedly sensitive to the unspoken needs of those close to you. You can be enormously compassionate with Venus in the sign before yours, but you do have to watch that you do not become emotionally overloaded, soaking in too much of their problems. You will be inclined to retreat into your own little inner dream world at the slightest setback or hint of indifference or rejection, which may be unintended.
LIBRA: Friendly, laid back and rather mischievous, you’ll want space, and independence in your social and emotional life. Maybe also a strong individual for a mate who is willing to let you go your own way. You do mean to stay loyal but you do get odd moments of insecurity which make you suddenly switch your affections off. Close relationships and one-to-one commitments may be making you more edgy than need be. It’s only a temporary phase, so don’t say or do anything too abrupt.
SCORPIO: Your ability to keep the peace, and generally boost morale at the moment, could be useful in gaining you prominence at work, and help smooth your path to promotion. Your charm may have a hidden agenda but it will bring the desired result if you just keep schmoozing in the right places. Your sophisticated approach will be just what is needed to bring respect from people in authority. Good food, drink, beautiful clothes and house are all important to your sense of well-being.
SAGITTARIUS: It’s important to have open lines of communication, since you want amusing conversation as well as cuddles. You are certainly not in the mood to be fenced in or tied down. Domesticity seems less attractive even than usual, and you want to be wandering around entertaining yourself anywhere but where you ought to be. Try to keep loved ones in a friendly frame of mind, and head for old buddies who you can rely on to provide you with the excitement you need.
CAPRICORN: At the moment if you are off someone, then you are really off. As far as you are concerned there will be no switching back on again. But remember you will not always feel this intensely and there may come a point later on when you wish you hadn’t been so abrupt. Venus may be throwing up odd emotional tensions at the moment, but it should also be improving certain joint financial matters. Money or generous presents come your way rather discreetly.scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: You will certainly not be short of admirers, social invitations or compliments for a few weeks. So make the most of the good times, and have fun. It will boost your morale, your self esteem and your status. This is the time to make long-term plans in many areas of your life and see where you are going over the next few weeks and months. Setting your goals is crucial since you do not want to drift around aimlessly in the times ahead.
PISCES: You’ll be more reserved than usual, rather shy, when it comes to expressing your romantic needs. Maybe you need to make extra effort to break the ice and show your inner warmth. Try to drop your rather stand offish manner, and be more outgoing. Maybe you do have too much work on your plate, but if you make loved ones feel excluded or demand too much in the way of responsibility from them you run the risk of dampening what could be fun times.
