For the week of August 2-9

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19, The Ram)

Be consistent this week. Leave your other personalities at home. Remember the one that suits you best is hard-working and assertive. Don't deny your creativity.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20, The Bull)

The things you want most may not be best for you. However, if they are then work for them. You can't build a home in one day, but you can tear one down.

Gemini (May 21-June 20, The Twins)

Art and culture are calling your name. Spend some time this week with your nose buried in a new book or at a gallery. Your fuller, future self is counting on you.

Cancer (Jun. 21-Jul. 22, The Crab)

You have those claws for a reason. Stay grounded on your principles and continue to fight your way to the top of the mountain, or simply back above water.

Leo (Jul. 23-Aug. 22, The Lion)

Surround yourself with a core group of friends and family members. Your natural leadership abilities will work better with a strong foundation of positive people.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22, The Maiden)

The word Altschmerz means weariness with the same old issues that you've always had. This week take one of those issues and begin to mold a change.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22, The Scales)

You're easygoing by nature. You can mingle with the best of them. So, if your people, places, and things aren't making you happy, find new ones.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21, The Scorpion)

Control the temper. This week, if a lover or friend is not treating you right don't lash out. It could mean bad things. Rather, walk away from it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21, The Centaur)

Focus on music. Make a playlist this week. If you have CDs still, then pull them out and gather a few to rotate in the car. Share your favorite songs and feel better.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19, The Goat)

While Comic-con may not be coming to Lamar Dixon anytime soon, that doesn't mean you can't dress up like Superwoman at home. At least dress your kids up one day.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18, The Water-bearer)

While it's rare that you use it, you have that sword for a reason. If someone is treating you unfairly this week. Let them know that they should tread lightly.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20, The Fish)

It's okay to be last. In fact, you prefer it sometimes. Likewise, the best things in life typically don't happen in an instance. Take your time. Focus on the build-up.
