Horoscope for August 5, 2016

ARIES: Being helpful is easier for you at the moment than indulging or playing, so you may feel out of place on social occasions unless you have a job to do. But the upside is that the mood around your daily chores is very much happier than it has been for a while. So it’s swings and roundabouts. You could be a little stand-offish on social occasions. Others find you reserved but do not always realise quite how shy or even pre-occupied you really are.
TAURUS: Your naturally sunny temperament is making you popular and helping you to avoid the boring routines at work and elsewhere. You are putting on a great performance, entertaining everyone in sight, and glowing when you have an appreciative audience. Nothing cheap or tacky attracts you now. You want to romance the five star way. You want to entertain or even better be entertained lavishly, with style and good taste. Luckily you seem to be surrounded more than usual by elegant and successful friends.
GEMINI: More emotionally sensitive than usual, you will need more demonstrative displays of affection. Just don’t get too easily hurt to the slightest whiff of criticism. You may be over-reacting to slights where none were intended, and brood rather than express your needs openly. Loved ones may be misinterpreting your signals and can’t always guess you right. Try not to look too much at the flaws in close partnerships. Only shaky affairs of the heart or business relationships will come to grief now.
CANCER: Companions may accuse you of being a social butterfly at the moment, and lovers may find you rather restless. Variety is the spice of your life just now, and too much claustrophobic intimacy will make you want to run. More friendly than passionate, you want stimulating conversations about life, literature and gossip. Nothing is making you happier right now than peaceful conversations with friends, neighbours, brothers and sisters or workmates. The everyday people in your life are the most appreciative and supportive.
LEO: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be extravagant, indulgent and sociable. Though you’ll not always be sensible about practical matters especially where money is concerned. Don’t trust all the advice coming your way since some may be unreliable. New ideas will keep you on your toes and there should be new opportunities coming up soon. Staying positive and listening to feedback will be important. Your health will benefit from getting the right attention.
VIRGO: What you really want is peace, bliss and harmony around, so you are trying to iron out problems, act as a peacemaker, and maybe in the process not stand up for your rights. But as long as you watch that pitfall, your natural charm is working wonders, which is putting everyone around you at ease, so clearly your popularity rating is high. Being upfront about whom you fancy is not usually your style, but sometimes you just feel like breaking out of your shell.
LIBRA: You may be feeling just a touch isolated or under-appreciated at the moment. But there really is no need. Just enjoy this quiet time since it will not last long. At times you are finding it difficult to express your feelings for fear they will not meet a positive response. A little like an oyster, you will snap shut your shell, in case your inner softness is damaged. Your fantasy love life could feel safer than real relationships. Try to reach out occasionally.
SCORPIO: The life and soul of the party now, you are roaming around chatting animatedly, flirting like mad but never staying long in one place. Your popularity will not be in doubt, since your bubbly, rather whacky manner is keeping everyone around intrigued and entertained. You have a wonderful knack of putting others at their ease, so you are more than welcome wherever you go. But you will be demanding elbow room, and will run a mile at the first whiff off possessiveness.
SAGITTARIUS: Loyalty and reliability mean more to you at the moment than flamboyant declarations of passion. You want to know that loved ones will be there for you no matter what. You very much want to be looked up to and admired now, so you are putting a great deal of stress on how you look, sprucing up your outer appearance. Maybe even putting on airs and graces. Try to find time to stay close to what you really feel on the inside.
CAPRICORN: Your frankness may get you into trouble with your nearest and dearest but you are insisting on going your own independent way. Luckily your obvious enthusiasm should be enough to keep them sweet. Just try to involve them in all your social plans since you definitely want to stir up more fun. You want love or your social life to be an adventurous experience and you will be happy for loved ones to expand your view of life and teach you a great deal. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: You want to live life at a profound level now and don’t care FOR anything too frivolous. Financial bonuses could be round the corner, especially where you work jointly with others. So the household accounts could be in for a boost, or one situation at work suddenly looks much brighter. Don’t let discouragement get you down if disagreements flare up or even if you feel cold-shouldered in team efforts. Only by facing up to difficulties can you hope to establish better relationships now.
PISCES: Socially at the moment you are on top form, charming the birds off the trees and feeling extremely popular. You will say what you think will please. Though you will have to face a practical situation at work that needs to be sorted. If the foundations you have laid in the past are solid now is your time to flourish. If you have not then this is the time it will become obvious where you have made your mistakes and must sort them out.
