Horoscope for August 8 by Russell Grant
Your circle of friends, old and new, will be a source of pleasure and inspiration. Some people you are staying with will be unusual in some way and their ideas will send you away with a wave of enthusiasm. Group activities are bringing out the best in you.
There's so much going on that it's hard to keep up with it all. You can't do it all, so focus on one area and keep your attention there. Some people are better able to handle more than one job at a time, but it works differently with you. Don't worry about what others think of you: do what's best for you.
You love a good argument, but continuing an argument with someone who is known to be stubborn will drain your energy. There is a difference between arguing and arguing. At least in a debate, you consider the evidence and speak reasonably.
You're doing your best to stay calm and logical in an increasingly intense situation. You are aware of how emotions influence your thoughts and opinions, and the last thing you want is to be accused of having a temper tantrum.
There isn't much time to complete the job if you don't want to miss a deadline. Time is precious and you'll want to make the most of every moment. If you can, find a quiet corner where you can walk undisturbed. Avoid friends and colleagues who like to stand and talk for hours.
As interesting as some of the suggestions are, you'll want to consider them further. Someone will make some remarks about a new, possible direction in your career. After thinking about it, you may not see any potential for the future. As grateful as you are that they thought of you, there are some things you'd rather not accept.
Maybe you can't remember a time when you felt so active and enthusiastic. While you're feeling so energized, you can get started on the plans you've been thinking about for a long time to improve your home. Or you can sort out the unresolved issues that have been left for a rainy day.
You have a lot to plan and think about, so you are taking a careful and organized approach to important matters. Positive results from recent decisions make you more confident in what you are doing, knowing that you are on the right track.
A job you have taken on is proving to be cumbersome and time-consuming. You didn't expect it to be so demanding, but at least some compensation will come through the people you'll meet during this busy day.
Business deals will be postponed or canceled altogether. Be ready. Improvisation is key. You will spot a troublemaker in your midst and because you prefer to observe from the background, you will quickly spot them. Let people talk while you listen. They will fall prey to their lies.
This is a good time to express your whims and fancies and encourage your partner to do the same. Exploring new possibilities will bring you closer. Be creative and have fun. Being with someone you trust will boost your confidence and enable you to discuss your deepest feelings.
A twist in an event will bring you and an old friend together. It will be a long time since you last saw each other. You'll both have changed a bit, but once you start talking, you'll find they're still the same you knew.
