Daily horoscopes: August 7, 2015


(March 20 – April 19):

It feels awkward to say no, but your days of accommodating others are over. Offer to talk again when this person gets his act together.


(April 20 – May 20):

Finances are tight, but don’t let this get in the way of your vision. Being forced to cut back compels you to be more inventive.


(May 21 – June 20):

Your grasp of a situation is slipping, but don’t try to assert it. See how things develop. This could work to your advantage.


(June 21 – July 21):

Your first response to an outlandish idea or request is to nix it, but sit with it instead. It’s the sheer audacity of it all that gets mental wheels turning.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

You’re entranced by an array of possibilities. Choose one. You need something solid to sink your teeth into. The rest will materialize one day.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Check in with an older friend or a pal you haven’t seen in a dog’s age. You benefit from an impromptu talk with someone who knew you when.

Others’ jealousy isn’t easy to deal with but you’re better off allowing people to wallow in their sour grapes than to pretend as if nothing’s amiss.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

An idea is intriguing but you can’t do anything with it now. That won’t always be the case so keep communications open.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

It isn’t wise to follow a friend’s advice in all things. You may be asking for insight on matters this person doesn’t know much about.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Your idea of what’s industrious may be counter-productive. Reassess where you are vis-à-vis others. You want to coordinate efforts.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You seem to be more upset about having let someone down than the person in question. It’s not the end of the world. Give yourself a break.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Cut people some slack. Though clumsy and awkward, they’re still trying to make the best of a bad situation. They could use encouragement.
