Daily horoscopes: August 8, 2018


(March 20 – April 19):

You may not have much use for trivial details, but a certain bureaucratic agency takes them quite seriously.  Do what’s required and you’ll get your life back on track.


(April 20 – May 20):

There are positive developments in store for your home life.  You’ll soon be making the transition from occupied territory to peaceful sanctuary.


(May 21 – June 20):

Do you keep having the same argument over and over?  Instead of pursuing a different tact with the same set goal in mind, you might try amending your position.


(June 21 – July 21):

Ask someone to hold your hand because you could sure use the moral support today.  Once you’re over the initial hump, you’ll be fine.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

That brave front you’re putting on is taking up a lot of energy.  Luckily you won’t have to keep it going for long. Back-up is on the way.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Tell a friend you’ll help, but you can’t do it alone.  This person needs to put his or her shoulder to the wheel, too.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

A partner or backer may have misunderstood what you wanted.  Don’t move ahead without clarifying matters first.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Nothing makes you happier than getting something you want.  Hopefully you’ll still be smiling after you see the bill.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

No sooner is the ink dry, then you’ll be putting an agreement to use. You’ve waited too long to stand on ceremony.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Competitors and knock-offs are a sure sign of success.  They wouldn’t care if you weren’t on to something big.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You don’t want to be skeptical about the latest back-and-forth, but you’ve been through the motions too many times.  That said, today’s developments may surprise you.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Don’t bristle at criticism.  It’s meant to bring you up to speed, not undermine your confidence. You need to develop thicker skin or a better sense of humor.
