Horoscopes: Monday, August 7, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). In juggling and in life, the key to keeping all the balls in the air is freeing your hands up as soon as possible.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are levels to honesty. Getting to the deeper levels will have nothing to do with morality, goodness or faithfulness. The deeper levels are about knowing yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Forgiveness doesn't change what happened, but it might change how you feel about it, altering the energetic imprint of the situation. Lighter living means carrying less of the past with you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sometimes stealing a kiss makes it more exciting. But if you always have to steal your kisses, the relationship is casting you in the demanding role of "sneaky thief." Is it really worth the effort?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe you're afraid to get rid of something because you fear you'll need it. Have a little more faith in your resourcefulness and place in the universal order. You are precious and will be cared for.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It won't be easy to find what sparks your joy, but you'll get closer by noticing what doesn't. You'll do this without judgment or snobbery. When you declare something a better fit for you, you're not saying it's better in general.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some think there's beauty in chaos. Others find anxiety there. Chaos will be unavoidable today. What you do with it will fall between grace and art.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There's a thought you'd like to extract from your mind for fear it will influence how you behave - maybe even who you become. This one needs to be examined and broken down.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The competition among your family will be particularly palpable, complex and unnecessary today. This is old business playing out in new ways.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Sometimes it feels like the same things are being offered over and over, year to year, town to town, person to person. This worldview is an indicator of exhaustion. Take a break.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you feel like putting the brakes on an endeavor, first put an investigation on it. What was the purpose? Is that purpose still worth fulfilling? Don't quit before you examine why you started.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don't have to be radically truthful with everyone, as that could (pointlessly) open a bag of worms. However, it might help to get a little more radically truthful with yourself. What is it you want and need that you're not getting?

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 7). This solar return features a different way of using and appreciating money. The new ease in this area of life will help you get a creative endeavor off the ground. Clean, clear space, and make way for excitement in October. Spiritual perception will be heightened in 2018. Karmic gifts center around felicitous relationships. Pisces and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 50, 1, 28 and 42.
