Daily horoscopes: August 4, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

If you are upstanding and honest then you’ve nothing to worry about when Jupiter squares Pluto. If not, make amends ASAP.


(April 20 – May 20):

Explore a compromise, settlement, or truce. The other party won’t always be this magnanimous and you’re the one who stands to benefit.

The chickens come home to roost today – karmically speaking. Hopefully they’re the free-range type because you don’t want to deal with the battery cage kind.


(June 21 – July 21):

Today’s Jupiter/Pluto square signals that you will prevail should you choose to go the distance.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

There’s no such thing as an exercise in futility as long as you get something out of it. Achievements may not translate materially, but spiritually you’re a triumph.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Don’t be so quick to blame yourself for cranky cohorts. Much of what you’re dealing with comes from years of buck passing and the truth you speak hurts.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

You didn’t make the rules but you will stand by them – even if it costs you a friend or an ally in the workplace.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Take a peek under the hood to make sure you aren’t agreeing to any Faustian bargains. You don’t want to enter into a binding agreement that you’ll regret later.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

You were born under the most magnanimous sign of the zodiac but don’t be so quick to pay it forward without running some background checks first.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Accepting the opportunity of a lifetime means breaking a previous agreement. Be transparent and ask for permission. You may receive it – along with a blessing.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You made the tough decisions nobody else could make and the personal cost has been tremendous. Now it’s time to reap the reward.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

You may not earn as much as others, but what you bring to the table is invaluable and they know it.
