Your daily Horoscope: 03 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

As Mars, your ruler, is now moving in your favour it won’t be long before you find a new sense of direction and a new motivation. Don’t let minor doubts and fears hold you back the way they did before. Believe in yourself and in your dreams.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

Let those who have been holding you back know that from here on in you alone will decide what is best for you. That applies to all areas of your life, including your finances, where you have been a little too eager to let “experts” guide you.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Do you act on what common sense tells you or do you act on what your emotions tell you? Actually they should be telling you pretty much the same thing: That it’s time to cut your losses and start again from scratch. It’s all or nothing.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

The planets suggest you will achieve more in the long-term if you take it easy over the next few days. Think of your health and pace yourself sensibly. Wherever possible get others to do difficult jobs for you. Give your mind and your body a rest.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

With Mars now moving through the most dynamic area of your chart you can and you must be more decisive. But that is not the same thing as foolhardy. Plan your moves carefully, then act with the full force of your personality and ambition.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

Some kind of upheaval on the home front is likely over the next few days, but the long-term effects will most likely be positive. In fact, a week or a month from now you will realize it was by far the best thing that could have happened.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

It’s not often you get on your high horse and lecture others about what they are doing wrong, but you will do so today. Your way with words means you will get your message across but try not to be too critical or you may make enemies.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

Maybe you will come into money today or maybe you will discover that you are not as deeply in debt as you feared. Either way your cash-flow situation will improve considerably, as will your mood. No, that is not an excuse to go on a spree!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

Now Mars is moving through your sign again your energy and your self-belief will come surging back and you will go all out to show the world what you are capable of. But know your limits too – no, not even Sags can do it all.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

You need to slow down. You need to stop buzzing around here, there and everywhere and take a long, hard look at your life. There are a number of things that need changing but first you must make sure you know what they are.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

This is a good time to start something new. It is also a good time to impress important people with your views and ideas. But be selective about who you approach. Not everyone, it seems, wants to hear how and why you want to change the world.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

Let everyone know where you are coming from and where you intend to go. They may not agree with your choice of destination but they won’t be able to stop you. No one but you has the right to decide where you seek happiness.
