August 5: Your daily horoscope Add to ...


By all means look back over the past 12 months and learn from your mistakes, but having done so turn your back on all the negatives and look forward to a positive future. Treat each new day as a new beginning – because that’s exactly what it is.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

The sun in Leo will give you a huge boost today. Even if you are one of those rare Aries who tend to see the glass as half empty rather than half full you will be positive in everything you do over the next 24 hours.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

You have never been a slave to your desires, so why are you acting as if you have no choice in what you are expected to do? The fact is you always have a choice and to claim otherwise is simply not right. Take responsibility.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

If you look for the best you will surely find it, but if you look for the worst you will find that too. Everything, and everyone, has a light side and a dark side. Make it your aim to encourage the light side today.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

Your mind will expand in understanding and you will know in a flash what it is you have to do. After that it is up to you: You can accept the challenge and be special, or you can reject it and be mediocre like so many others.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

Today’s cosmic influences will help you to view the world with eyes that see deeper and farther than most other people. What you discover will astound and delight you. The world is not only a beautiful place, it has meaning too.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

There may be an element of risk in what you are planning to do but that won’t worry you. On the contrary, it will add to the excitement and make success all the more enjoyable. The closer you are to the edge the more alive you feel.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

Do something out of the ordinary today, something others would not expect of you. If your instincts tell you to go for something you must not hesitate for even a moment. There is glory at stake and you must not let it pass you by.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

Authority figures will be impressed by your ability not only to get things done but to get along with a wide range of people while doing it. You will make difficult tasks looks easy – and make yourself look good – over the next 24 hours.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

With the sun, Mercury and Jupiter all moving through one of the most positive areas of your chart at the moment you can and you must do something out of the ordinary. Whatever you do it will be a huge success, so what are you waiting for?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

You are more likely to find answers to your problems if you get creative and look in areas you tend to neglect. You also need to get some input from loved ones and relatives. You don’t have to do it all on your own.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

Fate will point you in a new direction over the next few days and if you are wise you will go with the flow. There is no need to worry because the powers that be are looking over you and will always protect you.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

Be positive and believe in yourself – then act decisively. The current cosmic picture makes it easy for you to boost both your status and your earning power, but it won’t just happen as if by magic – the effort must come from you.
