Your daily Horoscope: 2 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

If you bring what you are working on to a conclusion over the next 24 hours everyone will hail it as a resounding success. And you will have every right to bask in their praise, because it was your talent and your self-belief that made it work.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

Today’s new moon threatens to bring half-hidden grievances to the surface and it’s likely that things will get a bit emotional. But that’s no bad thing. You desperately need to face up to and confront your inner demons, as well as your enemies.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Your powers of persuasion will reach a new high today and tomorrow. Your way with words will win everyone round to your way of thinking and, more importantly, your way of doing things. Take a more hands-on approach if you feel it is necessary.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

Today’s new moon will reward you in ways you may not have been expecting but which you have earned by your endeavours. Money has never been the centre of your universe, of course, but it’s right that you should get what you deserve.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

Do something dramatic, something that makes the world sit up and take notice. The new moon in your sign will help you overcome any doubts you may be harbouring that you have what it takes to succeed. You have what it takes and more.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

Cosmic activity in the most sensitive area of your chart means there is something you need to clear up before you can move on to bigger and better things. This may be the only crack you get at it, so don’t waste it. Be bold and take action.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

There may be times today when you get a bit suspicious and wonder why everyone is being so nice to you but don’t let your doubts hold you back. The fact is everyone likes you and you deserve to be treated with love and respect.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

Today’s new moon promises if you pluck up your courage and put yourself forward you will make friends with the kind of people who can give your career a boost. You can and you must be more ambitious. Go all out for success.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

Your confidence will be sky-high over the next 24 hours. You certainly won’t be afraid to take chances, either in your personal life or at work, and you won’t, for a single moment, think about the possibility of failure. You’re a winner Sag!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

You need to go on the offensive now, especially where money matters and business issues are concerned. It won’t take much of an effort to bring the good things in life your way, so be assertive and never accept less than you are worth.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

It may be easy to get irritated, even angry, with people who waste your time on trivialities but you won’t change their ways. Accept them for what they are and find ways you can work together that don’t test your patience.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

You will push yourself above and beyond your usual limits today, but once you have reached your goal you must stop there and go no further. A new moon in the health area of your chart demands you take time out to rest and relax.
