Only a fool accepts the conventional wisdom unquestioningly and you're no fool. During the first few days this week, exercise your questioning, critical and analytical muscles while simultaneously increasing your mental flexibility.
You'll compete against a co-worker who does not like to report to anyone try to convince this person that you have no intentions of overpowering him or her and would like to work together. Stars for those with a Scorpio ascendant seem to be favorable. This is a good moment to ask for a pay raise or more responsibility.
This is not the time to be quiet. If you are shy, you will not make any significant progress. You must fight for your right to be creative, because your talents might be the only way for you to get out of the pit. A small gift might be the magic key for you to prepare a list of questions for answers you seek.
It may feel like 'one thing after the other' clear through with fatigue, arguments, clashes with family members and common illness having you 'down for the count.' Lucky Lions who miss this one may be born in mid to later Aug. Inform members of your needs, especially Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Cancer and Libra as they are likely to be most helpful. Burdens lift quickly the 5th and fun gatherings and warmer sentiments prevail.
This week is to be avoided for all new projects as well as major changes in life since money maters could be treacherous during this time. Financial planning may not be as easy as you hope. If someone wants to borrow money from you, consider whether you can afford to lose both the money and the friendship.
Choosing pals well in the past may really pay off big time this week as your gratitude levels are likely to soar! Especially where buddies are concerned. Invitations to party or travel are finding for next week but a low profile involvement this week is wiser.
Take care of your mental and physical health. It is just as important to take mental breaks from the buzz of every day life as it is to eat well, get enough sleep, and exercise on a regular basis.
Find a way to feel "new," as if being introduced to society for the first time. Your sense of play and inner confidence make you attractive to the right people now. Get out and show yourself so that others can appreciate your sense of style and your powerful personality.
Those rules about check-out times and airplane safety apply to other people and not to you, right?
