August 02, 2011|Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Those who are observant will notice straight away: You are different from who you were before.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You know yourself well. You require a degree of challenge in order to stay engaged and involved.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): You have nothing to prove. People react to you the way they do because of their deeply rooted opinions.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You'll try new places, things and ideas. This keeps life fresh and exciting. You may spend more money than expected, but you won't regret the expense.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Opposites don't really attract as often as people say they do. However, reacting in an equal and opposite way to the one you love will build the relationship now.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You value your friendships and expect them to take up an appropriate amount of space in your life. You have no need for overpowering relationships.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Maybe you don't know what to expect, but that hasn't stopped you before.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): The way you learn grace is to, from time to time, fall from it. Much depends on your ability to recover.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You won't give in. But the person you're negotiating with doesn't realize this just yet, so he or she will continue to try to sway you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will maintain the policy that your emotions are no one else's concern. You are so impressively self-contained now that you will earn the trust of people.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will give in on the small points and validate your loved one with your agreement, even when you're not so sure he is right.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Though a certain person sees you as attractive in every way, your standards for yourself are a bit more stringent.

Today's birthday (Aug. 2): No matter what you do for a living, this year you will be in the business of making people happy. Your intuition is honed, and you'll realize just what it takes to make people smile. This month, you'll spend time with those you admire and make some memories. In September, you'll sign an important contract. Sagittarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 19, 31 and 11.
