 July 31 to August 6
Aries
[ March 21 to April 20 ]

An ideal moment to handle a difficult task or to bring round a stiff-necked person to favour you. Your stars indicate that the efforts that you put in now will bear positive results.

Taurus
[ April 21 to May 20 ]
People around you will remain grumpy and short-tempered. A little self-restraint and patience can work wonders. You can use your Taurean skill to pacify the grumblers.
Gemini
[ May 21 to June 21 ]
With Mercury on backtrack, you have been judging others too harshly and have annoyed them unnecessarily. They must be allowed to have their say before you take a final decision.
Cancer
[ June 22 to July 22 ]
A good period to win confidence of the loved ones. You will be more than ready to rise to the occasion. The exalted moon will see that your romantic interests are protected.
Leo
[ July 23 to Aug 22 ]
You are about to enter a splendid period in your career. If professional changes are in the air, you will have an upper hand. A cash bonus could boost your morale.
Virgo
[ Aug 23 to Sept 22 ]
The retrograde Mercury is in no mood to pull you out of the financial crunch. It will be difficult for you to mend your limping economy. You should not blame your stars when you neglect their warning signals.
Libra
[Sept 23 to Oct 22 ]
Try to strengthen your ties with a Gemini or Virgo. If bent upon settling scores with a Cancerian or Piscean, think twice before taking such a risky step.
Scorpio
[Oct 23 to Nov 22 ]
With the dignified Mars at the helm, your financial sector is set to surprise you. You can inflate your income by bargaining and investing in the sale and purchase of stocks.

Sagittarius
[ Nov 23 to Dec 22]

Rarely have your optimistic stars been so strong. Donít allow routine matters to undermine your progress. There is likely to be a change in your travel plans much against your wishes.
Capricorn
[Dec 23 to Jan 20]
The situation demands that you should be bold and assertive. Your stars advise you to stick to facts and not get carried away by the illusion that the grass is greener elsewhere.
Aquarius
[ Jan 21 to Feb 19 ]
You will be in a state of dilemma. The devil may care attitude could prove counter-productive. Your stars advise you to dismiss all fears, suspicions and rumours. 
Pisces
[Feb 20 to March 20 ]
The jovial Jupiter, your sign-lord, incites you to steam into top gear. There is little that will be beyond your grasp. It will sweep away the doubts and fears and maintain a hold on your emotions.

Born on

July 31
The Sun-Mercury combine heralds a period of progress. An old plan left halfway could be revived with a bang. You will gain a legal battle. Foreign connections and overseas travel should figure strongly before the year advances. That is what makes you bless your stars.

A flexible attitude on your part is an added advantage. A romantic affair could prove expensive from August. You could formulate a consistent policy to dispose of urgent matters from December.

August 1
A tricky and unstable year ahead. You will remain under illusions most of the time. You will set goals which might be beyond your capacity and ability. You could even ask for the Moon to satisfy your ego.

A dreamy and impracticable state of mind will haunt you during the first quarter. Fed up with a family member, you will like to change the horse in the midstream during the second. The situation is fluid, so it is better to keep your fingers crossed during the third. A much better time awaits you during the last phase.

August 2
Despite opposition from your rivals, you will get your point conceded to in letter and spirit. You will be in a mood to enjoy whatever pleasures are available rather than fighting over what is beyond your grip. You will concentrate on your home life from August. September is an excellent month for investment. November promises to be a passionate month. You could attract someone with your charm. Your career will benefit from March. You will support a person who is being given a raw deal by his own people during the end part.

August 3
You have not experienced such a benevolent influence of planets so far. This period will favour friendship, travel and love. Financially you could prove your wisdom and foresight. Your ascendant lord will provide a luminous glow to your activities. The most enjoyable period is from October. In romance, your hopes are rising but you will have to wait for sometime more. You might falter if you donít keep your eyes open during November-December. You will, however, learn from the follies committed by others during the last phase.

August 4
An out-of-the blue professional opportunity is at your doorstep. You will be in a position to overcome any setback. Good news will cheer you up after September. If engaged in speculation, you could earn huge profit from November. A positive development on the domestic front will be hailed during March-April.

August 5
The urge to get out and about and vary normal routine will be very strong. You will find yourself travelling and making contacts with strangers which will be stimulating and enjoyable period. A new attachment will keep you spellbound for all times. You will find yourself a tied to your home and perhaps involved in do-it-yourself jobs from mid-October to mid-December that you have been putting off for long.

August 6
The combust Saturn, in association with a combust Moon, may widen the gap between thought and action. Moon in a desperate hurry to enter a fixed sign means you would like to keep things as they are. If in love, you would be wise and avoid desperate hurry and make it a point to enter a wait and watch period for some time more. Donít waste your chances by taking the initiative in a hurried manner.

Listen carefully to the words of wisdom, even if you disagree. Do whatever is necessary to maintain your health from October to December.
