Horoscope, Monday, August 11, 2014

By From page A8 | August 11, 2014


Maybe you didn’t have a monumental party last night, but it still feels like you did. If the day after the full moon feels like New Year’s Day, the day after a supermoon feels like New Year’s Day in the year 2000. There’s a bit of cleanup and a lot of piecing the details together in order to remember all that went down.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Like the caterpillar to a butterfly, the changes that seem miraculous are nonetheless quite common, natural and happening to millions the world over. Relax and let the transformation take hold.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A fascinating interaction will be featured. Action makes things happen that could never happen if you only used words. Make your move, and pay attention to how the others counter it. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If there’s one thing you do not want to be today, it’s dependent. Shed your dependency, and suddenly you’ll be freer and more powerful with a clear sense of purpose. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Truly, less is more. Some things only take up room, and it’s time to get rid of them. You’ll be made aware of the extra baggage in your life — the things you don’t use, don’t need and have no attachment to. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your empathetic gifts are strong today, and you’ll be among the spiritually wounded. You won’t need words to work your magic. You’ll heal someone with a glance, a smile or a pat on the back. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). As you sort out a minor fiasco, consider that people are only doing what comes naturally given the circumstances. If the thunder didn’t make an awful racket, it wouldn’t be thunder. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re a cheerleader and a source of encouragement for those lucky enough to be in your circle these days. Witnessing the happiness of others is a great source of pleasure for you. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your welcoming nature and genuine interest will make the walls between people come crumbling down. This is not a small gift, though it comes to you so easily. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When new people join you, it’s always an adjustment, but you’re happy to make it. There are others in your group who need more time and exposure to get used to new people.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s a pressure to keep someone entertained. Just know that it’s completely within your capacity — but should you? It will only set up an expectation that you might, in time, grow tired of fulfilling.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The centrifugal force that spirals a galaxy is based on the same thing that keeps you spiraling around a certain someone: attraction. It’s huge. Discount the powers of attraction at your own risk. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may feel that you’re working at cross-purposes with another. This can be overcome, but not through force. Communicate until you can come to an agreement.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 11). You’ve been a good friend to yourself, so get yourself a nice gift to celebrate! Your tastes are evolving, and so is your environment. In six weeks’ time, you will feel like a new version of yourself — body, mind and spirit. Romance makes September interesting and October adventuresome. Invest in education in November. Virgo and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 13, 29, 3 and 18. 

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Is it really possible to be in love with two people? I think I am. One is a Virgo, and one is a Sagittarius. They are so different from each other. The Virgo is into music, and we see shows together, dine, have fantastic conversation and really connect on many levels. The Sagittarius likes sports, which I don’t, but he’s very playful, and the chemistry is insane. Honestly, I can’t imagine choosing between the two, but at some point I have to, right? They don’t know about each other, but I also don’t have an exclusive relationship with either one, although I think it’s what both want. Sorry if this is confusing. — A Happy Gemini with an Embarrassment of Riches She Probably Doesn’t Deserve

As long as you’re being honest and not leading each one to believe he is the only one in your life, I don’t understand why you should have to choose. It sounds like you’re suffering from low self-esteem. Why shouldn’t you be happy and busy with more than one special friend in your life? Enjoy your relationship abundance without fret. 

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Fairytale fans rejoice: It has been announced that Chris Hemsworth will star in a follow-up to the 2012 hit film “Snow White and the Huntsman.” This Leo actor, who also plays Thor and George Kirk, works well in epic fantasy worlds. He was born when Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune were all in the sign of distant places and far-off worlds: Sagittarius.
