August 01, 2011|Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Your role in a group will shift. Your age might play a factor, and you'll move into the role that now fits you best.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Someone wronged you in the past, and you're starting to let it go. Talking any more about it will only slow down the process.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): You will be quite impressed with the one who puts your needs before his or her own. The generous gesture will be emotionally stirring.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You don't have to know someone well to feel comfortable around him or her. This is because you are so worldly.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): A person who ignores signs is either asleep, in denial or illiterate. You are none of those things. You will read and heed the signs.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When people ask your opinion, you tell the truth. However, you know better than to offer up an honest report when no one has asked for it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Everyone is a bit touchy now, so it's not the best time to get into a debate. If you do argue or disagree, be sure to dispute words and ideas.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Most pain comes from resisting change or trying to control the uncontrollable. Knowing this, you will choose a pain-free route.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Like a cowboy breaking in a new horse, once thrown, you get right back in the saddle.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will witness the undoing of a situation. Though the action goes by quickly, you are so observant that you won't miss a thing.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your loved ones may be tense and cranky. Their attitude doesn't make your life any easier.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You'll be dealing with forces that are nearly impossible to mold and opinions that were formed so long ago that it would take a miracle to change them.

Today's birthday (Aug. 1): You have a knack for putting yourself in situations where you can grow. This month, you'll do what you ordinarily wouldn't, to favorable effect on your personal life. September shows you working with new tools. Windfalls come in January and June, and you'll be promoted. Scorpio and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 11, 20, 25 and 39.
